I was wondering to myself, and then after discussing it with friends, I think that if I can acheive a few stellar feats with my AA-12, I may get a unique award, like a dummy drum mag or "pack a punch" (silver) weapon skin for my devoted efforts. Now hear me out, you see, I already have around 38'000 kills with the AA-12, I have a 2.51 k/d with it and I've gotten 25 moabs while using it.
I'm also ranked 72nd in the world on Xbox in the "Buckshot" Accolade, and 30th (on Xbox) in the world in the "Boomstick" Accolade, as of today March 14, 2012. In my opinion, I'm already a cut above most players, especially others shotgunners, but I know I can do better. I feel that if I could accomplish the challenges below, I might get endowed with something like I mentioned above, in recognition of the fulfillment of these feats. I'm not asking for much, nothing big or anything that IW couldn't provide, I just want to have some sort of distinction about me that people could see, so they know what I've accomplished. I personally believe that my performance already should merit an award, but I'm willing to go above and beyond what I have so far to prove that I'm worth my salt, that I deserve my decoration.
May I present the challenges I intend to reach with the AA-12:
- Challenge #1: The Trial of Bravery: In this challenge, I must get a Moab with a naked AA-12, no Strike Package, no Attachments, no Profficiencies. This setup will be completely bare boned and will push my skills to their limits. My success in this trial won't hinge so much on the use of Damage, Specialist or Extended Mags, it will be all about me and my ability to close the distance between my enemies effectively killing them quickly and effeciently.
- Challenge #2: The Trial of Excess: This one will be equally as daring, for in the Trial of Excellence, my mission will be to get a triple Moab with the AA-12. Due to the fact that I will be using the AA-12, and regardless of the gamemode I play, a triple Moab isn't easy, I will be allowed to use attachments, profficiencies and the Specialist Strike Package.
- Challenge #3: The Trial of Stealth: This feat will require me to get a Moab using the AA-12 with a suppressor equiped, which dramatically changes the performance of the AA-12. I will use Specialist, but I won't use any profficiencies. This challenge will put great amounts of stress on my ability to stay hidden and out of sight, long enough to go in for the kill, and then make a dash for cover. Hit 'n' Run tactics will be my key to success here, as I must maintain a low profile and pick my fights wisely. I must not get greedy or impatient, it won't be the fastest Moab in the world, but I can do it I'm sure.
So, I think if I can complete the Trials listed, in addition to having 50'000 kills and 50 Moab's (with AA-12) I should be honored with what I've requested or something akin to such, which again, isn't much. I'll go to IW later with this inevitably but I just want your guys input on the subject, should IW hand out rewards for doing something sub lime?
Thank you for reading, any constuctive criticism or advice is welcomed.
I guess all I need now is a time frame
