Hi there Gouglouin

There are many variants to consider. Are you playing the version from 2014 ? If yes, it's a very good one for vanilla experts. If it's one of the latest versions, they are fine , only have more tricks. Are you playing OCTH and Instant Interrupts or NCTH and Improved Interrupts ? Have you fine tuned your game using the INI.Editor from within the game folder ? I'll try to help by pointing out a few things. Do not give up. The game is extremely playable, day or night.

To be effective with a sniper scope, you need a bipod and the MP5 doesn't take a bipod. As it is, don't try for headshots, better go for the torso (main mass, bigger target). Until you get better weapons at least. Personally even with the most powerful rifles, i still prefer torso shots. One way to do this is by using the cheats. While in game, if in a fight, wait for your turn, make a quicksave just in case and type gabbi while holding down the ctrl key. Once the cheats are active hold down the Alt key and press W repeatedly. To go back is Shift + W. One of the first sniper rifles that shows up is the M-24 with a 10x scope. A few clicks more and you see a russian machinegun with a bipod, take only the bipod. No need to overpower your team it will kill the fun. Just take a couple of essentials, such as a true sniper rifle, bipod and powerful scope,10x or 7x. It will make a huge difference.

OCTH and NCTH ( Old and New Chance To Hit)
OCTH is what we got used to in Vanilla and it works better with single shots. Sniper or Assault rifles with scopes and bipods
NCTH is what has been implemented to an extend in the newer versions pf 1.13 and it focuses more on weapons that can fire bursts or full auto. Probably the reason why the enemies are accurate and you are missing.

Instant Interrupts is what we used in vanilla. Improved Interrupts is what the enemies do, your mercs can do too, gets better with more experience levels but not all the mercs have a line of sight to the target. I prefer the classic interrupts from vanilla.

Melee and hand to hand combat has been improved and can be very lethal. Instant death lethal at times and that goes for both mercenaries and enemies. Don't let the enemies close in on you, Shoot for the legs if you can to slow them down or stop them completely. Try bursts from the MP5 and other small weapons if they get close.

Same as in vanilla, try to fight at night until you find a long range weapon, such as a Mini-14 or something similar. Best way to deal with the massive Drassen Counterattack is at the Mine sector, the bar on the north of the sector. It has no windows, line up your mercs, one behind the other along the south wall, all facing the door from the side, prone if possible or crouched. Shoot once and wait for the enemies to come investigate. The door is a bottleneck, they can walk in one at a time, you whole team can get interrupts. Sometimes a more experienced enemy can drop a grenade or fire a burst at your team. It's not a 100% foolproof plan but better than having to fight 60-70 enemies out in the open with meager gear and short range weapons.

When hiring your starting team, make MERC immidiately available from the INI.Editor . Hire Gaston from there, he comes with a sniper rifle and 7x scope, all he needs is a bipod. Shadow and Reaper from AIM also start with sniper rifles and 7x scopes, they need bipods also but you may be unable to afford them in the starting team.

Before starting a game, use the INI.Editor from the game folder, to change a lot of options to make the game more familiar. Whether you want OCTH or NCTH is up to you. You can also use the vanilla cursor for aiming and shooting, the new one is best for NCTH. The INI.Editor is a great help. Make a shortcut for it and use it to start the game.

That's all i can say for now, i hope it will be helpful. Don't give up on 1.13 it's an awesome mod, makes a great game even greater. Here's a link to the 2014 stable version, the page contains a lot of information,links to the downloads, the cheats, hotkeys and more. Take your time with it.
