    Tell us about your K.E.M

    slyd0g55

      I got my 1st K.E.M Strike today. Played HC Dom on the map Octane solo and just got lucky i reckon , i died a few times then my streak started, called in my 1st attack helicopter then when my Helo came up one of my team mates called in a Oracle and i just went gunnin kept the Helo aside, i picked up a shotgun got a kill then dropped it for a SMG and alternated between the Remington, when my next set of streaks came up 7.9,12, i knew i was getting close, a few kills later and there it was! Me an my son were smiling he was like it's gone all 'dusty' dad i just kept saying i got the nuke son.

       

      so i sacrificed a Helo to insure i wasn't vulnerable it worked this time round.

            I've only gotten 3 kems, 2 in FFA and one in TDM. None have that much of a story as i was actually trying to get them so i was using specialist. I do have a horrible fail like most people. So i was playing core DOM on prison break, like you i was using assault killstreaks. i was doing well and got all 3. Battle Hind, Helo Pilot and Loki. #pubstomping Once i got done with those 3 i got up to my battle hind again i did some calculating and realized that i must be close to the KEM. I'm not sure what i was on but must have been around 19-22 kills. So i started to really focus on staying alive and go up the hill by the B flag, watching for ied's along the way. i was near the top and could hear someone on the other side coming my way. I knew he had no idea i was there (Dead Silence) so it was going to be an easy kill. But as fate would have it the little noob had his shotgun in hand and blew my head off. So i took out my second helo and destroyed them all for one last time before the game ended. Unfortunately didn't get a chance to use my second Loki but whatever. As you would expect i was the only one left in that lobby after that game so didn't get a second chance at it. Managed to go 54-1 in that game so it wasn't all that bad, still not a KEM tho.

              Must have felt good slyd0g

               

              Had a few on strikezone, but the highest I've got is 18 kills on stormfront, which I hate, just using guns and a battle hind which got me zero kills.  It's nice to them on other maps though, even on the receiving end.  Really hits you and is very atmospheric.  Only seen two on Freight and one on Octane though (other than strikezone).

                Not sure if we can post videos or not but I'll try.

                 

                This was my first on PS3 in the first week it came out.  I've moved onto PS4 since. It's a bit campy towards the end as I started to get nervous as I was getting close lol

                 

                I was trying to keep count of how many KEM's I've got but I lost count at around 80ish so I don't bother anymore.

                      Nice bro. I used to hate Stonehaven until I started using an AR and forcing some action into the game myself (the SC2010 most recently).

                       

                      I only started liking the map after the Dom/KC hotfix, because I started playing KC and Stonehaven kept coming up. I'm always collecting tags so high assault streaks and hardline help counter the added risk of pacmanning out in the open. Trinity rocket, hind and helo pilot = guaranteed 40 bomb every time. You're not as good covering the longer sightlines with an AR (although the SC is arguably the best long range gun after the R5 hits its 5hk range, it's 20% faster and yet more accurate) as a sniper would, so the aerial streaks take care of those, although the noise puts you at a disadvantage up close if you can't soundwhore lol

                       

                      May have to try for a specialist Stonehaven KEM on KC soon

                      I have ha alot of KEMs but they are mostly because i like the specialist package the most, but my fav is my support KEM with the Lynx. I started the game thinking i was just going to watch the B flag (Stonehaven) and just as i climb the latter it calls out losing B. I look over, go for the quickscope and bam quad! Woo! That quad got me so pumped i just started going off. I ended up grabing a L11 even though its my least fav Sniper. But wen i got it I was shocked. A sniper KEM has to feel the best.

                          First 15 kills of my first and only KEM were with the Maverick sniper rifle. I had to pick up an AK as the other team pulled out the tents and marshmallows

                           

                          If SRs weren't nuked I'd make a proper attempt at USR and VKS KEMs.

                          My first K.E.M was only a couple off weeks ago. since then i got about 5 more

                           

                          I was playing DOM on prisonbrake with a SVU markman rifle (reddot and grip) and went on a streak. i tried to move as silently and stealthy as possible making sure i never stayed in one spot for too long.

                           

                          I only used support killstreaks (Sat com, vests and oracle) to be sure that if i went on a streak i would only get kills from my gun.

                           

                          at het end my bullets were gone and i became a little panicky so i scavanged a gun and killed the last 3 guys to get it.

                          i was so happy that i got it,it's a pitty you don't get patch or background for getting one.

                           

                          i like to sneak around the map and not run and gun that doesn't work for me.

                            Nothing beats the feeling of that first kem. Mine was on war hawk in FFA. I honestly have no idea how i managed it. Was using a AK with foregrip and extended mags just to try it out. It was by far the most intense game i have ever played. Drop shots, jump shots i think i had a lean kill in there somewhere too, i had to pull out everything. Near the end my heart stopped beating and it was just a constant vibration. Crazy feeling

                              Anyone got a story to share with their recent first KEM?

                                So your first KEM was on HC...with assault streaks? Lmao congrats bud!

                                 

                                My first KEM was in TDM, on Stormfront (yep, Yawnfront, Thermalfront, whatever you wanna call it). Started out with the Maverick sniper rifle as it was only my second game after downloading it and the AR didn't seem suitable. I ran incog as usual on that map, and started out sniping everyone that camped prone in tall grass near B Dom. Struggled to find anyone else after going 8-0, so I checked library building and lo and behold, all 6 of the other team were in there! Surrounded by motion sensors (thanks incog) and IEDs (thanks blast shield in specialist bonus). Did my rounds again, got to about 15-0, and decided I wanted to rush these clowns as they were bedded down big time and I was kinda vulnerable on the steps peering round the corner with a 0.5s ADS sniper rifle - I was on my own, my entire team bar one were camping the building on the opposite side of the map!!

                                 

                                Picked up a fallen AK, just kept moving around after clearing out that room, and kept returning as they all ran back in to set up shop again.

                                 

                                Someone went to knife me as I reached 23-0, but for ONCE I didn't get samurai lunged from 20m away counter-knifed, got a lucky flinch headshot on the last guy and BAM, KEM strike baby. Went back to my Maverick, as the scope helped with the normally low visibility and the worse visibility provided by the KEM. Finished up 37-0. Pressed my PS4 share button, wanted to show my friend. The screenshot was of the 37-0 scoreboard and KEM dust background, footage was of random game hours before. Much pi$$ed.

                                 

                                Oh and yeah, it still went to foxtroting time limit >:(

                                 

                                Came close to a second KEM on Prison Break FFA with Remington R5 and satcom + dog only assault streaks couple days back. Dog only got one kill, and I only had one dog as I hadn't died. Got to 24-0 (with hardline for fast satcoms), got a satcom, put it down in trees behind truck near cliff by path leading to tower, guy surprised me, I failed a dropshot from 7m out (argh 600rpm) lmao

                                    Nice story bro , good to get a positive vibe once again! And on TDM with sniper/assult rifle combo!,  lol I did the same thing with the share button and like you it didn't save

                                        I started making a habit of double tapping share to record before every game, but then I'd have some mediocre games and forget to keep double tapping (to delete the old one and start fresh).

                                         

                                        Eventually I'd leave it so long before double tapping again, that 1. I'd lose an actually good gameplay and 2. I'd need to go into memory and clear out 20gb of useless captures every couple of weeks lol
