comment Is there a way to save the communist deserter from execution?
@TZHX You might be right, I found out that there are a few places in that level where you have to trigger alertness in guards in order to get certain morale points. I tried to do a pacifist run, and you can kneecap soldiers to get past them without killing them, but their buddies usually notice and you get a snowball effect. I think sneaky games should allow you to cleverly get past the enemies, but this is quite hard in Metro.

comment Can Ugh-Zan IV be defeated at all on Serious difficulty at 400% health?
When you say "spamming cannon balls" what exactly do you mean by that. Normally I would understand spamming as "repeatedly clicking the fire button in very fast succession" but with cannon balls, this will launch several slow cannon balls. If you charge the cannon it takes quite long but the cannon ball will inflict a lot more damage. So, please clarify on "spamming" in this context.

comment Rescue or Harvest?
For every Little Sister saved you get 80 instead of 160 ADAM. But for each three saved you get an extra gift of 200 ADAM plus one plasmid. So, yes, you get 40 ADAM less every three Sisters but you get a free plasmid, which usually costs 80 ADAM. All in all, I'd say you can only profit from rescuing them.
