The 150 kills thing is pretty easy in Hardcore and usually only takes a few hours. Start it immediately after the headshots/OHKs and you'll pick up some of the other Revenge/Bloodthirsty/Double Kill ones on the way.

I've been playing nothing but HC since the weekend and I think Carrier is now my favorite map. In HC at least. No I'm not drunk.

My opinion of the maps has changed dramatically since I started playing hardcore. Carrier is great, but god drat gently caress Standoff so much (corner campers paradise).

So I'm a five year old but when the SOC wins instead of saying "Our generals will be pleased". It sounds suspiciously like "our genitals will be pleased."

Nothing is as satisfying as planting a Guardian/Sentry combo into one of the stairwells on Express. Made my night, I'll tell you.
Mine is 2 Sentry Guns and a Death Machine because I enjoy unequivocally owning half of an entire map.

Standoff is probably my second or third favorite map!

Any map sucks if everyone beds down and camps though. Carrier is a pain when everyone just plants and watches over each other's flanks. Carrier is also great when you get behind all the snipers, as it's an easy bloodthirsty. I've noticed Slums is become one of the highly-voted maps with pubbies and I'm not a huge fan, it's basically land-Hijacked. Got my first Merciless in it though.

Free for All and run Ghost, hide like an idiot and ambush and keep moving. You're relying on 7 other guys looking for 7 other guys being all around them and they'll be distracted.

Express with a smart team feeding you UAVs and VSATs. I don't know why, but express is my best knife map.

I finally got that challenge done last night, now I have to finish the "destroy 10 player-controlled scorestreaks" one. Those are just Dragonfires and VTOLs, right?

And sentry guns. I did this challenge thinking it was just dragonfires and vtols. It took loving forever.

It's something like "MAY-shure MAY-shure". Which my brain always interprets him alternatively saying "Major Major" or "Measure Measure". Still funny to hear though.

Slums and Raid are great when both teams on the same page. No camping, just piling into the courtyards during KC. Utter chaos. Even when you're losing it's great because you're getting poo poo-tons of points.

And EMP's plus Scavenger are great. Throw 'em everywhere and share the fuzzy love. With Engineer those red outlines are just free points for the taking. Thankfully the community at large hasn't realized how drat amazing they are, they're too busy running around hipfiring SMG's and still scoring less. Definitely planning on Scavenger being my next unlock.

Main reason to do it is to level faster by getting gun challenges. You also get your emblem on your gun after your second prestige.

Yeah. I do it so I can get my emblem on my guns. I must let the whole world know that it is my gun.

Really though, most of the guns are decent without any attachments. The one I kinda regret hitting prestige on was the Saiga. Stupid gun.

You don't get camos from prestiging guns.

I love Rainbow Moon.

It is the deepest game ever. Nothing compares to its epic story.


When you prestige your weapon, you get obtain more exp from doing those weapon leveling again. Notice how each attachment gives you +xp. You get that exp all over again and you get to put a veiny penis on your gun.

You get a calling card for maxing out a gun at prestige 2. It's a fancy 5000xp and required for the even fancier mastery one.

And most of the time, the more useful attachments are on the low end of the scale, so it doesn't take long to earn them back.

I like the feeling of constantly working toward something, so I prestige my guns because there is an option to prestige my guns. I'd still do it if it didn't give you jack poo poo.

So there's a second set of keys in the bank, right outside the vault. It seems that if you punch them with galvaknuckles, you can use them to give money to other players in $1000 increments with a $100 service charge.

Minor offense: User will be temporarily banned from using the Emblem Editor, and all emblems will be reset to default.

Its kind of implicit though since technically its their emblem editor and we're using their game/servers.

I wonder if they're going through all the reported emblems or just narrowing down suspects by whoever is using the number 9 & 1 emblems? There's no way they're randomly going through millions of emblems.
