Simply put, you only use the weapons that the enemies mainly use which are machine guns, shotguns, and the RPG. Then just scavenge ammo from their cold dead hands pockets.
It takes 2+ headshots to take down normal mobs with the Golden pistol. I shudder to think what its going to take to kill a handyman. And the mobs stumble around a lot more, making them harder to hit >.<
Also, I thought the kicking you to the main menu if you run out of $ in 1999 mode, post death, would mean starting from the beginning again. It doesn't. So if you want to have all the money you had before you died, just die some more until it kicks you to the menu & restart from your last checkpoint with full money. Then, try not to die again.
There's been some differences in this playthrough as well in Battleship Bay relating to the decision whether to throw the ball at the couple or not (still dunno what happens if the time runs out though), not having Fink's guy show up (I got his gear reward from someone else), & dialogue relating to choosing a different necklace for Elizabeth (but that one's an obvious difference as I chose the cage this time).
