    Hey guys,

    After beating FO:T on tough guy in normal mode, I'd like to give it a try on tough guy - insane. However, I get my butt kicked big time and have not yet managed to even open the first (!) door in mission 1. Sometimes I manage to kill the first three raiders, but number 4 kills one of my team mates and that's that.

    To beat the whole mission, I guess I need some different tactics altogether. Any advice from you expert gamers out there? I am playing a sniper team (no HtH), but obviously their marksmanship sucks in mission 1 on insane.

    Thanks so much for any advice how to beat this mission, every bit of info helps! Or any links to tough guy - insane walkthroughs, I haven't managed to find one.

    The best tactic to the whole game is approach slowly. Take Farsight and let her go into prone and snipe them one by one (I'm guessing it's a raider and the dog, right?). Hide Stitch so he can fire at them with his pump-action once they run towards Farsight.

    Your dude can be somewhere in the mix. For example, you might choose to leave Farsight at her original position (the bridge) while you move up, if a raider approaches you she should be able to take him out. Then Farsight moves up etc.

    Also, you might need to switch to some CQC pals. At least grab an Uzi and kill anyone who's too close to properly aim from a rifle. Otherwise yes, your ass is going to get kicked. Like robots and shit?

    Study the map too. Trust me, when you follow a plan and don't have to interpret along the ride, it's way easier.

    Thanks, will try that. I hope that once I get through the first 2 missions, the small gun skill of my guys will be high enough to do some serious damage to my enemies...

    I tried tough guy and very hard diff. I just was taking too long. But if you dont raise diff it shouldnt be so hard. As said farsight and go prone with the others pop shoot and prone again with them (behind cover of course).

    I tried this without that RPG turn 1,turn 2 etc. i used normaly not with waiting at turns and i finished fast.Insane level is a bit-harder.
    But i finished,all you need to do is in this mission is to kill the raiders with your squad 1st is the door open the door enter with the all of yours characters(3 chars.) and shot em' there are just two not hard at all
