Who rated this game anything but a 10/10??


Recommended Posts

I am very familiar with call of duty games and have put way more 3 thousand hours into call of duty. But these trophies are just straight up horrible. This is a significant step up from world at war difficulty! You can’t get a break! The guide says the last hostiles mission is easy but in no way is this the case. I have played it for hours and have camped in the room upstairs and anytime I try to pick enemies off that are on the ground floor they see you and shoot you before you even have the chance to kill them! I can’t even get a 2 star let alone 3. And hostile intel? Don’t even get me started. I don’t think it’s as hard as the mutually assured but its definitely harder than the rest. Then the no damage on rocket’s red glare, completely escort service without reloading when I did this and never actually reloaded tho the animation started when I was trying to pick up another gun causes it to fail the trophy and then you can’t forget about kill 8 enemies with 4 shots on MIA? How are these even remotely fair trophies? Not to mention veteran mode that gives you no slack and has AI that are smarter than sweats that you play against on damn blackout and multiplayer on bo4? What is this bullshit? I more enjoyed going for the 100% on bo3 on the ps3 and that’s a hell of a grind. If anyone has any tips on any of this feel free to tell me but I have only even been able to finish one veteran mission and it was the one where it’s timed and you have mortar strikes at the end. And ANY tips on hostiles is also appreciated. This game is beyond frustrating.

Im still trying to plst this, controls are just terrible.

I know right?? They are infuriatingly bad. They are so terrible. I am so lost on what to do for the rest of hostiles mode it is so unfair and needlessly hard can I go back to modern warfare 2019 or mw3 spec ops? Christ sakes

Creep around walls, it’s the only way

How do you do that on a map where there is no place that you can really hide from them and when they come up from the door can kill you instantly? I just died in less than a second from a bomber on mutually assured. It is so stupid

Playing this at the moment as well. It’s certainly frustrating at times but not even close to the difficulty of World at War. The only thing I find annoying about the controls is how the grenades work. Other than that it’s just standard CoD controls
 

The veteran operations can be a pain, it helps to play the level on regular first to learn how the enemies spawn. Self Destructive is the toughest operation.

 

I didn’t have any trouble with hostiles, beat them all on my first attempt. I actually had more trouble with the Time Trials. You can mostly camp on every Hostiles map. Playing with headphones helps a ton as you can hear enemies creeping up on you as well.

Tbh I didn't have that much of an issue with it. In my honest opinion it was about a 4 or 5/10. It's really not hard. The only thing that gave me any trouble was the 8 kills with 4 shots, but after trying countless times I got it. It's not hard, it's luck based. It depends on where the guys spawn, if they're crouched instead of standing etc. 

 

Rocket's Red Glare without damage got it on my third attempt I believe. And those are the only two trophies that gave me any remote difficulty that I remember.

This is NO WHERE NEAR WaW Difficulty. You are exaggerating like a mf with this statement.

 

This video helps for anybody wondering about Double Down. This is what I used.

We forgetting COD Classic is a thing? Don't let that rarity fool you.

I've always been shocked at the rarity for COD Classic. I remember back in the day a lot of people were hacking the plat but even now that the leaderboards have been somewhat cleaned up it is still a relatively common plat.

 

As for this game, I'd probably put it down as a 7 or 7.5 out of 10. Not too bad if you have patience and a bit of luck for some of the annoying trophies.

Yeah! I love old FPS games but not having regenerating health makes them stupid difficult compared to games that have regenerating health. It's mainly the reason why I haven't finished MoH Frontline, COD Classic and Wolfenstein 3D lists to  name a few.

If I can be a boomer back in my day asshole, regenerating health makes games so damn easy compared to health pickups, even WAW. It only takes you a couple takes to complete the grenade barrages of WAW but go and try to do Golden Lion in MoH Frontline or Dam in COD Classic in the same amount of time :D

I just recently finished this and didn't find it too problematic overall, although your biggest enemy in this game is RNG.

 

Hostiles: every map has a decent camp spot which you can defend. Use the minimap to your advantage. On the last mission, you can defend the top floor by staying close to those 2 stair cases. Do not use the room with the window, you will get killed by grenades sooner or later. I reached wave 25 and just let myself get killed because I knew I could play it "forever". Had 399 kills.

 

Veteran difficulty: play on normal difficulty first, know the level layout and enemy spawns. Creep around corners and use grenades when appropriate. Also, this channel has some Veteran runs available, e.g.:

 

Spoiler

 

 

Red Glare - no damage: use the strat described in the video in PSNP guide and abuse explosive weapons that are provided. On my successful run, I backtracked back into the room to pickup RPG after using China Lake in the first big open area. You can also try the explosive crossbow.

 

4 bullets / 8 kills: know all possible spots and pray to RNG gods. Here's a second video which shows different strategy for the room encounter. I found that much more doable than what's shown in the video above.

I did WaW and spent like 5 hours on the very last section of the last mission where you are trying to get to the roof to plant the flag with Reznov, but I have spent more time playing just mutually assured alone than that mission. I don’t know how you can not struggle with hostiles tbh

I am not really thinking it’s exaggerating. I would genuinely as of right now rate this as harder than waw.

Which specific spot did you use on the last mission? I have tried like 10 different things and can’t figure out where to go.

I was literally standing near the 2 doorways that lead to top floor, checking minimap at all times to see where the enemies would come from. Never had any issue defending that spot.

Maybe I’m just stupid but there is no where I can find in that room that works. I have stood in every spot of that room and everytime someone comes around the corner pre shooting killing me instantly before I have time to react.

I think i gave it a 6 / 6.5 tops, i dont recall

nothing that cant be done through repetition 

Saying this game isn’t even a 7 is cap. You are on some type of drugs. Cod on vita is the most broken, annoying and most bs game I’ve ever played. It’s not repetition otherwise I would already be done. The trophies for rockets red glare and ops mia alone make this game at least a 5 by themselves. Add hostiles to the game as well as the most broken veteran I have played to date (I haven’t played cod classic yet), then you have at least a 9 on your hands. This game has shown to be beyond bs and beyond infuriating

Well i do smoke marijuana so youre right about that

i dont remember my timestamps, i think it took me 2 weeks to plat the game playing off and on

ive spent longer times on singular trophies in other games than this games entire trophy list

The only thing that really took me a few retries was the getting double kills with single shots, theres a lack of checkpoints okay, i get that much and the hit detection is a tad off but i didnt struggle that much if at all, i enjoyed it, i thought it could have used a multiplayer mode or had a little more polish to it but overall, i didnt think it was an impossible 10/10

The game isn't difficult, until you play the game on Veteran, which is just unfair. Why the developers made such a hard campaign on a new handheld system baffles me. The 8 kills in 4 shots is just RNG more than skill and it is frustrating. I did what I could without pulling my hairs out. Fun game nonetheless but sometimes you have to know when to call it quits!

I think the controls and the flinch system while getting hit are the biggest problems of this game. If it had been released for normal platforms (PS3, PS4) without that flinching it would have been a really decent cod title. Still think it's a shame that this never happened.

I agree westersburg! I really had fun with the game and the controls weren’t too bad, really good for the vita. I tend to stop going for games when the scale of “fun” slides into “frustrating”. 
 

I don’t want my memory of a game to be soured. That said, I completed the first few missions on veteran and had experienced more than a couple dozen cheap deaths lol. Throw in spending an hour on the 8 kills, 4 bullets with no luck and I’m out. Would’ve been a cool console DLC tho
