so questions
1) are armors weapons unlockable in survival mode
2) how many maps are there in survival mode ?
3) do you need to unlock al armor/weapons when you play at a higher level
4)what do you do with credits in survival mode ?
5)since you have 3 lives in survival mode how you can use one of them, when you are dead the game ends (when playing solo)

1. Nope. You get a level 1 Trooper with terrible weapons.
2. Six.
3. You can play at any difficulty right from the start, but you won't be able to handle Inferno until you level some.
4. They just go into your cash fund for buying weapons in Campaign.
5. You have to have another player revive you. You don't get to use them solo.
6. Remix has different (usually harder) enemy spawns. It's for variety.

For question and answer #3, are you talking about Survival or Campaign?

All of the other questions in that group are about Survival, but I don't remember it having a "higher level" (like a difficulty setting).

It is a test of skill.

To suck all the fun out of it. Between that, and no armor or weapon upgrades, it's just no fun for me. I've only played it a little in single-player. I'm sure it's better in m-p, but it still doesn't seem like you'd ever get very far. The weapons and armor just aren't strong enough. I wonder how many waves people normally get through in m-p.

while survival is far more difficult and lacks unlock type progession, it can still be fun, and allows for twice as many people to play at once. Health also doesn't drop until after wave 5, when several large armor crates show up for a brief time, and if it's a level with a vehicle or manned turret, you get a second one, and each player gets one more revive. It's definitely difficult; my friends and I haven't managed to make it past wave 9, even with 5 of us, although admittedly some of them are brand new to the game. The main campaign is definitely the more fun and rewarding of the two options though.

When you say "armor crates", do you mean like the things the bosses drop, or something else? Do they show up in wave 5, or after that? Best I've been able to do solo is the end of wave 4 (where I was eventually killed by 2 small Hectors).

If you get some better weapons, and another vehicle/turret, that would certainly help.

Health drops.

Ah, the big health pickups that you sometimes find at a waypoint or dropped by a boss. Thanks for the explanation. That would help, but I'd rather have better weapons.
