i just ran into my first heavily armored bad guys and had a heck of a time taking them out. Does anybody have any tips. I tried a stealth kill but it wouldn't let me so I'm guessing that's out.

Grenades work well.

Can't use takedowns on them until you have heavy beatdown, which you won't have access to for a long while into the main missions.

If you're forced into closer ranges, C4, grenades, RPG, or the grenade launcher (my personal recommendation) are all good picks.

If you have a lot of distance/stealth on your side, you can slowly whittle away at them with a (optionally silenced) sniper. I advise that you kill everyone else in the area first.

Amr shot anywhere or a z93 head shot. Or like the poster above me said, grenades

For some reason when I taunt with Zero in Ultimate MvC3 he swings his Z-Saber and says:

Flaming arrows one-shots them.

They are only armored in the face. A bullet to the back of the head ruins them.

Personal favorite is the flamethrower. Molotovs burn em down considerably fast too.

They take a lot of punishment the first time you fight them. Unlocking skills changes that. And getting better weapons take them down fast. You can even head shot them from behind.

DO: use molotovs

DON'T: use your knife

when in doubt, try fire; the cure for everything. good advice in all aspects of life, not just murder simulators. ;)

Oh, yeah, and the flare gun (another favorite of mine) is a good one or two hit killer.
