I've been playing through Future Soldier on Veteran, but sometimes someone watching me will comment about how much harder it is on Elite, like how that guard would have seen me, or that there was another person there with them. Said person is not known for their veracity though. What actually changes? Does it affect the combat and the stealth? In what ways?
the difficulty level affects the enemy npc's awareness and makes them have advanced artificial intelligence. the enemy will flank, hide behind cover, and might be stronger (I'm not sure). You will also die a lot faster.
1. It's not that hard!
3. Damage Output
4. Smart AI
5. Timing is everything
