    How to beat Firefight on Heroic

    Alright to start the guide off, the best lvl to do this on is Alpha Point. I will split this guide into sections explaining each factor that makes the achievement easier to obtain. First will be explaining the level and what makes it the best map for Endure. Secondly will be about the wave's, round's, and set's. And lastly I will be explaining the enemies and what weapons to use against each type.


    The Map Explanation

    To start it off Alpha Point is a semi-closed off building where there are 4 stairwells branching from the center. Two of which the wave's of enemies are dropped off at to attack you. The other two are where you start, which holds ammunition for your pistol, and smg on the sides of the stairs. As well as there are 4 med-packs all set near the stairwells, 1 in each hallway, and one on the side of the stairwells wall. Also there is a sniper rifle along with a shotgun in the center, posted up on a column. There is one rocket launcher on a bench in between the drop zones for the enemies.

    The Best weapon/strategy for every enemy

    Grunts: Use the pistol, if out of pistol ammo use Carbines
    Jackals: Use the pistol, if out of pistol ammo use Carbines
    Drones: Use the SMG or a Brute Spiker.
    Brutes: Use either a Plasma Pistol, with a pistol or carbine. Brute Plasma Rifles are good for them as well.
    Brute Chieftains: Use either a Gravity Hammer, Rocket Launcher, or Fuel Rod Cannon for fast kill. Assassinations are really good for them.
    Brute Hero's: Use either a Gravity Hammer, Rocket Launcher, or Fuel Rod Cannon for fast kill. Assassinations are really good for them.
    Hunters: Use either a Gravity Hammer, Rocket Launcher, or Fuel Rod Cannon for fast kill. Go sticky grenade crazy.
