    Been playing with some kick-ass thunderstorms coming through. I have racked up about -5000 points with disconnects...I guess I will stop for now

    Who is "we" and "us?" Are you playing in co op? Because it's possible/likely the strategy won't work unless you're playing solo. The reason is that A.I. partners are needed to distract the guards. If you must do co op, play Arcade so you can respawn.

    Running my Insane playthrough... I was looking for some final boss ideas, Thanks for the tip.
    I almost broke my controller on my solo hardcore playthrough at the final boss... that sure did get tough!

    The final boss must have glitched on me during my solo play through on hardcore. They kept saying "GUARDS!" but I never saw one. I just took that bitch down. The only problem was even though it wasn't a problem it still took a really long time.

    Wait...so let me get this straight. If you play through on Insane-Arcade you can respawn and still get credit for going through on Insane?

    Please explain this advantage. Does playing in arcade-mode count toward completing on insane?

    Yes. If you play co op in Arcade and you die, you can respawn if your partner(s) stay alive for 30 seconds. It counts toward Insane.

    to add to sheriffbullocks post yes, but there is no going down and no bleeding out, Down= Death, then a wait, there is a few parts this doesn't work and you need to keep yourself alive, the sub part is one, also completing the game in arcade mode on insane is an oynx medal as well as the achievement, also when I said "we" I had 3 others with me.

    Not sure on that yet. You also probably can't change difficulty for the individual players like in regular campaign and that would probably make a huge difference. I guess I'll be trying it later for sure.
