Yeah, I've decided to play with a cleaner screen, so I only have the currently equipped weapon showing and any target/vital information. It adds a new level of challenge as well.
Interestingly, some time ago I'd also resolved to never use BC drops with propane/FE, even if it takes longer, but I realised it would have been very difficult on this contract. Plus I think it was cleverly designed to make you plan very carefully when and where you use the explosive. I enjoyed playing it.
