Im trying to learn basic melodies as practice on the piano/ keyboard. In terms of the main melody (not the stabs in the middle after the gunshots) are these chords or just single notes. I am hearing single notes and then a single note bassline playing something very similar give or take a few lower notes. Please just tell me if Im correct here!

Yeah man, it's sounding to me just like single notes, but the notes are kinda "fat" and may have a bit of stereo/widening and probably some detuning int he oscillators or sample or whatever. Just my opinion though, could be wrong, but seems like single notes to me... I can play the melody on the keyboard with 1 key so I'm guessing that's it.

chords, you can hear an ambient lower note playing in the back of the most prominent note, sometimes it's the same note but an octave or two lower, sometimes it is a different note. But then again, I only hear two notes, and a chord is technically three or more notes in unison...

I think chords are kind of implied here with only one voice. That pedal note (drone sound) creates a foundation that those single notes build on, so it more or less is two note chords. You could class it as a melody but I don't think it's meant to have a melodic effect...
