Slide Kills with an LMG?

Just got through the gold gun challenges on the LMGs and I have to say, I felt like a complete TOOL doing the slides...

I mean why would anyone do a slide in the first place even with a CQC weapon? But OK I get that a lot of the Halo Jumpers and younger kids would enjoy that sort of thing, but I was actually embarrassed doing it with a heavy gun, even the ChainSAW...

A necessary evil I guess (if you want to do challenges or have gold), but how about sparing a thought for the heavy gunners next time you think of a challenge please?

Most of us are a bit more reserved and tactical with LMGs than to sprint and slide...

Please be a little more appropriate in future, like Shooting down air support, Double or Triple Kills, Headshots, you know? Think about how a heavy gunner rolls...

You'll have us doing 360s and YY taps at this rate... LOL

Some of them do seem a bit odd.

The one I don't like is the 'no attachment' one, simply because I feel like I'm going into a game not best equiped to help win.  It feels selfish, like I'm only playing to complete personal goals.

I therefore try to get these in FFA, but I've come to hate how that game mode

The naked gun challenges I saw the merit of to be honest, sorts out your aim and range thinking...

Also the lean kills were easy enough with the naked gun, just camped a room or chokepoint for most of them...

Yeah, see your point, although learning the ranges of kills changes for me as soon as I unlock that camo, as I pretty much always have muzzle break or a silencer, depending on how I fancy playing!

Agree on the combo with lean kills though.  A Leaning, Crouched, no attachments, long shot, rescue kill ftw!

For other challenges though have to be glad that there is no theatre mode. The sliding knife kill, how many stink faces happened because of this one. Could just imagine the montages. At least with the weapons you could keep a little distance and not end up with a face full if you missed .  Just a little humor there.

This has got me thinking, presumably there are no sliding camo unlocks for the sniper or marksman rifles are there?

I'm just trying to do my first marksman and as always start with the 'no attachments', so haven't looked any further yet!?

No slide for sniper or marksman, thank god, but MM does have a point blank camo, which is really annoying.  I really don't want to have to rush with those.

What bothers me about the LMGs slide requirement is that it is actually higher than the ARs, which have higher mobility.

Good, that would of been daft!

Presumably they have another requirement replacing slide kills then?  I'll check tonight.

Does seem odd that LMGs have a higher slide requirement?  Presumably they expect you to forward slide all the way into the prone position more with these?  Don''t know!

Pretty sure it is headshots in place of slide kills.

That would make sense.
