I did it on survivor, it was both the worst and best gaming experience I've had, well kinda. I couldn't face going outside after let alone thinking of doing it on grounded.

Played a few games in a group yesterday evening. It's glitched to hell.
It was fun when we got into a game full of noobs tho

I've done it on Grounded a few years back. It's very close to Survivor.
What I did find is that folks tend to think they need to sneak kill everyone.
If you use your actual ammo the games systems will give ammo back to you.
You don't have to use stealth all the time. You will note increased ammo drops if you use your ammo in-game.

Essentially: Having low ammo gives you a better chance at seeing an ammo drop

Yeah Survivor was very different than the regular run, it was almost a different game. I was aware of the ammo mechanic alright. Much of my playthrough consisted of trying to run past baddies. It was just things like the restaurant fight with Alan? or the shack fight mentioned earlier filled me with dread, as I approached them.

I forgot to get some alcohol to make a medkit as I approached the shack fight, then the game autosaved, d'oh ! I could've restarted the level but I wanted to see if I could do it without getting hit once. One tip I found was that you can one-shot bloaters by shooting them below the knee with Ellie's rifle as that part isn't armoured.

I probably stealth-killed in most encounters just for satisfaction but yeah a lot you can just run past even on Grounded, including the sniper part on Suburbs.
Even the fact you can't see a health bar isn't that bad as you get a feel for how much damage you've taken. If you have the itch to 100% games and have already beaten it on Survivor then I definitely think you can do it on Grounded.

It's not necessarily that I think I lack the ability to do it but whether I could endure the stress. I actually played it again straight after the survivor run just to relax.
You're almost crying with relief when you find a bandage.

The checkpoint system is where the rage comes from.
It's a load of bolox if you die. It puts you miles back.

Did anyone ever shoot a clicker in the face to see the fungus break off?

So I've gotten all of the trophies from the main game & DLC apart from the Firefly journey, and I've noticed that some people are using exploits in MP to shoot through parts of the map! There were a few times where I was getting shot when I was inside even though there was no-one there. And then there's the pay-to-win weapons & perks. Great multiplayer at times but that can really sour things for me.

If there's one thing online multiplayer has taught us, it's that people are c***s
