Special Note to the Mods: If this in essence is against the forum rules, please lock this and I understand why.
There have been a few threads over the years about HC vs Core and which is easier. My philosophy is neither is easier/harder: Adjust and Adapt, and use the tools (or the lack of) to play differently to your advantage.
Another forum member indicated that they found HC to be the same level of difficulty as Core (agreed), and they can routinely get the higher streaks in either mode (nice claim)
I am inspired to challenge you!
(I hope this is not against the forum rules, so let's make it as "within the guidelines" as we can):
Post a video of your achievements on getting higher kill streaks in HardCore (no time limit to the challenge)
- must adhere to forum guidelines (e.g. you cannot simply post a video. It has to accompany some valid topic of discussion ... like the strategies that you employ, tips and tricks, etc...)... this can be very helpful to users
- Any game mode, but: You have to make attempts to play the objective. You cannot JUST be that slayer who totally (100%) ignores the objectives, or sits back taking people out while trying to get the objectives
- Any Map (of course)
- Any of the kill streaks post VSAT (VSAT itself does not count but it as obvious good streak to use on your way)
- Any weapon, any attachments, any perk combinations
- Please do not post anything irrelevant (e.g. you only get a VSAT lol)
- Please DO NOT BASH anyone's playstyle (unless they 100% useless camp*), or attachments used (yes, the TF is allowed in this challenge)
Bonus kudos if:
- Nothing less than the VSAT is your 1st streak
- You get a swarm
- You cycle your streaks (if not in part, in whole)
The goal of the challenge (again) is to demonstrate the tactics you use to beast the HardCore Game mode. Choose your streaks WISELY (it would be a shame to kick yourself lol)
Please feel free to add...
Have a Wonderful weekend everyone, and happy hunting
* holding choke points and active defending is not camping, no matter what you think, for this challenge. Sitting back in spawn, or in a random corner, is. TDM Exception: You can camp, but not in the same place for too long.

Nice challenge. I think it's a good idea to have the challengers to be sure to have their gametag linked to Elite. This way, everyone will have access and see in what context the good game was had. (I checked the forum member you mentioned in the OP and there was no Elite record.)
Anyone can have a good game at any given time; or, for that matter, a lucky string of kills at any point within a game. The chances of luck is multiplied exponentially if the challenger resorts to those methods which are by consensus to be cheap tricks.
If we had access to the history of games, then we can better assess how good a game it really was. For example, we can see if there was lobby shopping, excessive quitting, playing solo or in a party. [EDIT:] (Nothing wrong with partying up, but it does tend to make things easier if e.g. the team colludes to manipulate spawning.) [END EDIT] One can gain a lot of info by simply looking at the sequence of games, the scoreboard and heat map.
Just my two cents if one wants to take the challenge in earnest.
