Well I've finished this run, so it's not really a big deal now. But anyway, I beat the game on Survivor when it first came out and I've just gone back to the game intending to play on Master and without relying too much on equipment upgrades. The problem is that at random intervals (maybe after dying too many times?) the game will inexplicably switch to Survivor without me knowing (the difficulty in the options menu will still say Master). I only realised something was wrong because whenever I fail stealth in liberating an outpost, I'd just get myself killed, and it would take an absurd amount of time for me to go down under constant point-blank fire. Then I also noticed when continuing the game, the save details would say Survivor.
Has anyone encountered this, or know what causes it? Maybe something to do with still having my original save.
Difficulty doesn't seem to have much bearing on stealth gameplay though, so maybe next time I'll just keep health upgrades to a bare minimum to make up the difference.

Try playing through on master diff, without upgrading anything. I'm currently trying this on ps3, not too far into the game to till whats gonna be super hard yet. This is only my 2nd play-through.
