That was pretty interesting but very desperate game. I didn't know that HW will have some heavy weapon. More than that - weapon that shoots pretty common 5.56 ammo! But it was clear from the very beginning that I should find MP5 (plenty of them) and sawed-off shotgun/colt or 12g combat shotgun on the first or at least second floor. Otherwise I would die because of lack of ammo. So that happened at long last. I discovered two Engineering towers and that helped for the first hour. But on the second floor I had to retreat cause I didn't have ammo (stim packs are pretty useful in such cases). It was pretty fun how I shoot aliens at distance and then closed doors just in front of their faces several times. ^_^ My plan was to find Military tower cause I had 6 security keys! I could discover a sawed-off shotgun, colt or even 12g combat shotgun there!.. But I couldn't pierce through a Security tower unfortunately.

If you run out of the ammo, invest some points into skills.

I'm still a beginner player, if that, but I found that investing in both heavy and primary weapons is a good start. After exploring the storage tower level 1 and getting a MP5, you should have plenty of ammo. Never got past level 4 with this strategy though,.

M4A3 with based sidearms skill is just piece of crap. So I had to use my heavy weapon more often than I wanted.

Well, there are surely other types of Sidearms available, and they are decent at finishing single targets.

Also, please note that switching from any weapon to sidearm is *really* fast.

Just damage bug enough, wait till it gets at point blank, switch to sidearm and finish it with a single bullet.
Priceless.

Sidearms are decent, certainly for the first level until you can scavange a SCAR.
