(Please note the descriptions of what each mod does aren't entirely accurate. I explain what they actually do in part 2)

Extreme and Insane Difficulty Rebalance ADS Outline All Modes Infinite Lives Sentry Guns - Lifespan Extended (see the "Files" section of this mod and download all 3 files) No Stamina Drained When Rolling Battle Synths (Also see the "Improved Bots" discussion on steam, same thing) Technicians with Rifles Friendly Fire Control and Ammo

How To Add The Mods:

> Once downloaded you will need to also have WinRar or another program that can extract ".PAK" files from a compressed/zipped folder.

>Follow the file path of where the game is downloaded (see picture) and note that the letter of your drive may differ depending where you installed your game

>Create a folder titled " ~mods " within this folder

>In this file drop all " .PAK " files from the downloaded/extracted mods

(I also have the improved doctor mod for QOL enhancements but it isn't a class I play on Insane so it isn't required for this)

What Each Mod ACTUALLY Does

Extreme & Insane Difficulty Rebalance:

- enemies have much lower health (arent bullet sponges)

Personally tested and completed the whole campaign + HORDE mode on Extreme with them.
