Grunts still go down in a headshot but all the enemies, Elites withstanding, seem to be able to soak up more body shots than before. There seems to be a greater focus on ranged combat, I can only remember meleeing the first Elite onboard the Dawn and a few of the dogs. Tried to punch a Knight earlier and ended up admiring the physics of dead chief skating across the floor.
As for difficulty, it's the Knights, when they arrive in bands of 2 or 3, that make Legendary harder. I'm fighting one of the badass ones at the moment. Insta-kill sniper, three flying bicycles, a laser turret and two buddies make for a bleak affair.
