Vanquish is backwards compatible. I'm going to give it a second shot sometime soonish.

Here's some tips:

1. You can drop a grenade in place by throwing it during the boost cancel animation.
2. You can immediately detonate an EMP by using it while in a boost melee attack
3. The lock on laser can be fired during dodge recovery, and the arc maniplated by looking up and down.
4. The LFE gun surrounds you right as it fires so you can use it to blow up enemies at close range. It's super effective at grouping larger enemies together and is really easy to fire during boosts. If you fire it as enemies spawn in, it does way more damage than normal.
5. You automatically enter slowmo when you are very damaged. Sometimes you can do this on purpose to have max slowmo time.
6. The shotgun melee attack counters enemy melee attacks, and on counter it's the most powerful in the game. Charged it can easily wipe out large groups of enemies spawning in.
7. Melee attacks cancel reload animations.
8. Boost kick and sniper melee has a freakishly large hitbox, and you can tag multiple enemies even through walls or behind cover.
9. Boosting immediately before a dodge lengthens your invincibility window.
10. All enemies will immediately target cigarettes.
11. Shooting a missile as it leaves a romanov will blow it up taking the romanov with it.
12. If you switch grenade slots as you throw, you can get infinite grenades.
