While I generally don't complain about event difficultly (which I tend to find a bit on the easy side).... 2 head shots? Seriously?

Nice one, plenty of time too.

Prices are great, MC, Cbills, Warhorns, Cockpit items, Camos and a Color, two thumbs up!

Two headshots will be a challenge, never actively tried to get those, better armor up your cockpits fellas Posted Image Posted Image

It´s just for the top tier challenge mate. You don´t have to get every single one. Relax, shoot stompy robots, vary your mechs if you usually tend to a weight class / weapon class. Have fun get goodies Posted Image

Hmm, good thing I more or less have all the colors I want because the headshots challenge is absurd. I play since open beta and still haven't achieved the 10 headshot milestone.

2 Headshots? Hmm... Either the Nova or the Hunch2C with double LBX-20, I suppose. Or an Assault with two Heavy Gauss, too.

Get a Locust or Pirahna and watch for enemy disconnects. Boom, headshot.

Hell, I don't even believe in me.

I'm looking at the challenges, and while everything except the 2 headshot thing looks grindable, this is going to be a time sink. I'm going to be having some uncomfortable talks with the missus.

I believe that the hit boxes of disconnected mechs are scrambled making head shots nigh on impossible. Afk, overheaters and targeting/luck are your best options.

I approve of it all. that last one is going to make me up my game a little, or just play a bunch of flamer and micropulse builds. Posted Image

The headshot requirment will force a pretty crazy spree of flamer builds and is incompatible with many playstyles (my fave mid-range hit-and-run for instance). A lot of people will be staring at ech other trying to snipe the cockpit. That's sad.

I got more than 100 (and 70 of those within a month when flamer-nova was viable), others even got 1000+. But you need to actively go for them with specific builds like flamers and/or dual heavy gauss, they usually don't happen by accident.

Here is something to motivate you (although the build i used is long outdated Posted Image):

I might get the Marauder IIC collector's pack at that discount. Was a favorite of mine in MW2.

I can already see a bunch of flamer Novas trying to overheat dual HGauss mechs.

@All: I feel... torn about this event. Ok, some things are for great players only. Fine. According to Jarl's List, I have played over 4017 matches they are aware of. To my knowledge, I have never headshot anyone... and I think I have died to a headshot about six or seven times total... If I am not mistaken, I have also never exceeded 500 match score, so one of twelve is entirely out, it is not difficult, it is literally impossible (for me). Out of the remaining eleven... Destroying 100 components is almost certainly also going to be a fail (as a similar requirement made me (and others) fail part of an earlier event).

On the other hand, my Kit Fox might finish the AMS part of "Go ballistic" in a single match. The cumulative match score parts are pure grind and will depend entirely on how much time I can devote to this. The missiles and TAG thing appears reasonable over time.

All, in all, I am extremely puzzled why some parts of the whole are overtly simple to the extent that a few players I know will complete them in literally 3 games while others will literally take several 8+ hour days even with maximum effort.

Oh well, I will take the literally couple of hundred MC and a few minor items I am likely to get. Good luck to everybody!
