Just got the game, looking for tips

Looking for tips to improve my experience in mercenaries and campaign. I want to get to a B ranking now in mercenaries and then an A eventually.

Counters and CDG are your best friends. For mercs at least. Also, before you kill even one enemy, get all the time bonuses scattered around. Don't touch the green bonuses until you're ready to kill, as they're point multipliers.

Yeah, it's best to get all the time bonuses and scripted items in the stage before you start killing. It will be easier if you are fully stocked and ready for anything.

As for the campaigns, they're all pretty straightforward. Try to use melee prompts when you can to conserve ammo, and be prepared for a few cheap deaths via QTEs and scripted sequences.

Return it tc. Maybe not now in your case.

I did that and traded it in. Eventually however. I bought the game at launch. Got tired of it. Best to save up for PS4! Its coming, b****!
Hate my crapbox already. Can't wait to get back to Sony. Bill Gates can suck my Krogan quad next gen.

headshot -> melee instantly kills most enemies.
it's the most beginner friendly kill tactic.

Anyone got any tips for killing bloodshots quickly? Helena's grenade launcher does quick work of them but I only have so much ammo of the gun.

Does extra item drops increase different ammo types other than pistol from spawning. For the most part all that I find is pistol ammo and skill points.

Try countering bloodshots. You'll get an extra 10 seconds added to your time and it will kill them instantly. Wait for a bloodshot to leap and then quickly press R1. It's tricky to master at first and I still miss it at times. Incendiary grenades will kill bloodshots quickly too. Flash grenades will set them up for a CDG, which will add another 7 seconds to your time. I would use Helena's acid rounds on hoards of enemies and/or whoppers instead, but it's your choice on how you want to play.
