General help:
-In this mode the actual difficulty of enemies is on pair with the regular medium mode.
If someone kills you will still have the ability to use last man standing mode, however you will want to avoid having to go through it at all costs - enemies could be behind cover or your weapon could run out of bullets.

-Use painkillers manually and try to keep your health above 80% at all times.
Time should not be a concern as after a few chapters you'll have plenty of it, so take your time when needed.

-Your main ally in this game will be the bullet time gauge. Whenever you kill an enemy without using it or when being shot it will replenish. It also replenishes a bit while using bullet time if you kill enemies fast enough. Use bullet time all the time to easily target the enemies heads and also when an enemy tries to flank you.

-Avoid using shootdodge at all costs unless it is your last resource. It leaves you too vulnerable and there is no point in using it when you can have your bulelt time gauge filled enough to use it almost all the time. Only exception is at on point during chapter 8 where I recommend using it.

-Your main concern of the playthrough should be in the moments where you can get a insta-kill or automatically fail, such when you are protecting someone or getting a RPG shot to the face. All these instances are marked by a "One-Hit Kill Warning" sign on top of the screen.

-Dual-wielding handguns can kill enemies in a much faster way than rifles in some cases when in close-range, so whenever possible try to save up ammo for them for when you really need it.

-In many cases staying behind cover without actually using the cover system can help you kill enemies easily and thus fill the bullet time gauge. Remember to use the left and right buttons of the D-Pad to switch shoulders.


-You should know this by now, but just in case: If you die/fail in this mode you have to restart the WHOLE GAME. There is also no checkpoint so you can not quit the game and come back, it must be done in one sitting. You can pause the game though.
-This mode is set to Free Aim, you can not change that.
-I used the control type #4 with L1 and R1 (LB/RB) to shoot. Sensitivity set to default (4-4-5).
-To use the Beach Max outfit (or any other) in NYM Hardcore mode just start a level with the outfit you want in regular NYM and quit the game as soon as it starts. You'll have that outfit when you go play NYM Hardcore.
-Be sure to leave the video's annotations on so you can see all the tips.
