Omega Weiss isn't too hard: start by firing Death Penalty shots at his chest, run in a circular motion. After you hurt him enough, he attacks. Keep shooting him in the chest until 50% life then (if you haven't done so) kill all the minionsy and fire at his head. Repeat.

In Deepground Strikes Back, when you get to the camp site after the tunnel, first kill the DG soldier and the Bizarre Bugs. From there, don't go any farther but instead, from where you are, look for a hole in the mountainside with a bug in it and shoot the bug twice with your Hydra. Then the bug will jump out followed by four or five other bugs. They will think it is the DG soldiers that are attacking them and they will kill most of the DG soldiers. Then, kill the remaining DG soldiers (if any) and while the bugs are still circling around, shoot their thoraxes. This will give you a few critical hits, another criteria to get an S-rank in this and all other chapters. This strategy will also minimize your Sustained Damage, another criteria towards the coveted S-rank.
Also, jump down into the clearing and stand near the ladder. From there, aim your Hydra toward the highest mountain above the tents and shoot the Memory Capsule.
This is Memory Capsule #33.
