Anyway, just had the best firefight of the game. Took some guys out from a vent, hopped down, took out a camera so it wouldn't bitch at me, didn't realize a few more guys were in the area, two of which were well armed, plus a robot. Ran in circles from them a I tried to find the robot console. Meanwhile I keep hearing guys saying "man, I must have been knocked out," making me think that they can revive tranqed men. I see them jumping off of ledges, but ultimately they're near me, not the robot. So I make a mad dash, then a jump, past the robot and into cover, letting him wipe them out while I save ammo.


Then I find another robot to hack, with no one nearby, then yet another robot shoots me as I madly punch a wall (which I just purchase, thankfully) and run into a vent. As I dash around trying to find the robot console I realize a well armored guy is in the room with me. I start pounding him with double shotgun blasts but he isn't going down. He throws an EMP at me, knocking stuff offline but I can still shoot. Or could, the robot (or a buddy) came into the door I had and shot me in the back.

Intense. When these firefights are actually on they're as intense as FEAR was (when played on the hardest difficulty without using bullet time.)

Yeh, the enemy can revive unconscious comrades.

It's one of the trade-offs of using those kinds of weapons so you'll want to either stun-and-sneak-away or stun and hide the body. I just ALWAYS hide the body in case there's some patrolling NPC I haven't accounted for, or if I mess up later and accidentally lead some guys from another room into a self-made opium den.

If you're in an actual firefight then you need to take out everyone quickly and don't lose their attention so they decide to wake up their team mate. Though I don't know how their logic goes, how they rank the priority of: fighting you, waking comrades, searching for you if you've hidden, hitting the alarm button, etc.
