It's a sad thing Gearbox cut out/left out the Bug Hunt from the game. This game mode would saved the game or at least doesn't has a bad reputation like it does now. Bug Hunt simply a survivor mode with extra features. You must survive no less than 30 waves of Aliens and WY mercs. You can play up to 4 players co-op, or alone. You got credits for kills and you can use it for buy ammo, health, armor or unlock new areas off the map. Or you can use for suppressors to downgrade enemy threat percent. If you die you 1000 credits to buy you back, or you can wait till the wave ends. You can use any weapon or character in the game mode, but be careful you can choose loadout only once! So choose wisely. You can unlock and use auto-turrets too. You can repair and reload anytime, if you had enough credits for it. You can also unlock smartguns too. But watch for the ammo, there's no resupply. Bug Hunt has 3 maps Broadside, Mercenary and Tribue. Broadside sets on a ship, maybe on Sulaco. You see the space from the windows and you can navigate through various locations of the ship, many corridors and open spaces. But watch it, not always a good idea open every doors. Mercernary is sets on LV-426 some kind of Weyland-Yutani facility, has many small safe rooms, open spaces, many doors and shatters. Use your money wisely. The last one is the best, Tribute. It's the main buildings of Hadley's Hope and everything looks like in the movie. Before the atmosphere processor exploded. Has many open spaces, such many buildings with rooms and corridors. Watch your back! With 4 players this map is better then the whole game or the campaign! And finally this game mode also good for collecting achievements or challenges! Most of them work in Bug Hunt mode and also give you XP.
