Pistols only!

famousaj

...But I only upgrade it twice. This is pretty much all I run even with my locker key upgrade. If I have a say, I try to have my lobby members (friends) run it as well. It keeps the annoying weapon challenges completely away. Sniper challenge, lame


who's with me!? Pistols Firing! Go Pokes!

    I hate when the sniper challenge shows up too, especially when I've already upgraded my primary with attachments. on your side note, I enjoy Friday the 13th, these days always seem odd!

    if we have a team commitment, everyone buys the gun, than challenges are easy, and we get it done quickly! We make money back to buy another gun on the end of the hive/obelisk anyways.... Plus with the attachment armory, I get to keep whatever fits in the gun!

      If you're an XBox player ... if you're a Playstation player, that doesn't work yet

      i feel ya. we do too. but you need at least two to run non-pistols only. it's tough for one person to get 25 kills on smg/sniper for the 2nd hive in POC. there 's just barely enough time for two ppl, flares help, but it isn't guaranteed.

       

      3 teammates running around in circles all whilst trying to protect the drill can be comical though.

      Agreed, our group has two WS classes so they usually work on those challenges whilst our medic and engineer cover the drill or "train" the cryptids towards the WS guys.

       

      It's the Insta-fail challenges that really bug me, especially on awakening if there is a crafty Gargoyle hiding in the wall who ruins one of the 'take no damage' type ones'

    If I'm running Medic or Engineer, then absolutely with you (unless someone needs completionist).  If I'm a Weapon Specialist, I like to be able to deal the damage I'm supposed to with a more powerful weapon.

    Ran hardcore point of contact the other night. The second challenge was sniper rifles. We made it to the third hive with no money and died. Tried again with pistols only relic, and finished platinum completionist.  You would think hc is harder with a relic. Turns out it's much easier with pistols only active.

    Pistols Only is a lot of fun, but I am currently addicted to Shotguns Only. I'm so addicted that I barely play Awakening because you have to wait to the second area before you get a decent shotgun to have a good time. I actually level up my WS to quick relaod level then I level up pistol to get 2 primaries just so I can carry.... another shotgun.

     

    Favorites are: MTS (long range), FP6 (mid range), Bulldog (close up)

     

    If anyone is interested in running a Shotgun Only lobby send me an invite on 360.

     

    Shot percentage challenges are always welcome with a shotty, at anytime on any of the first 3 maps. I'd link Awakening in there too, with the exception of the first area where you are limited to the horrible TAC12. Why that shotty is so underpowered is a mystery to me.
