I noticed that sometimes "Find and kill Leper in under 30 seconds" challenge is Failed... how can you fail a challenge like that in 15 seconds or less, before the time runs out? Leper escapes on your helicopter? Gets outside of the zone? Killed by a teammate? Killed by Rhino? Dies by itself? Suicides? Morphs into another alien type? Fails to spawn?
Has anyone else experienced this? Any solution?
Most often Leper comes after a teammate and dies within 30 seconds, but sometimes challenge is failed without explanation in less than half of time given.
i've had this happen once, when in persuit of it, it fled over a house.
and whilst the timer had not run out, it showed challenge failed.
you're lucky it actually comes after someone. on one occasion, it went hiding behind the houses in the city, next to the hive blockade.
absolutely no way of killing it, so had no other choice then let the challenge fail.
I usually drop a booster so I can detect it from far away, move in and unload on it.
I do think that from all the challenges this one is the worst. even 50% acc. in the cabin is better.
We seem to do well and then this one crops up in the final area, and we can't seem to ever find it, even using Feral!
Is there typically somewhere it usually comes from, a certain direction? :-/
I even ran out of the area where that hive is, to the buildings, and nothing.
I know this is late but I have seen some new players in the game. From what I have noticed you can use a flare to draw the leper in. So far I have had about a 90% success rate with this method if you get your flare to land around the 1.2 second marker during the previous count down timer. Not sure if success rate changes with the upgraded flare.
Happy leper hunting.
You fail this challenge by allowing an automated device kill it such as a century gun or vulture. Turn your centuries backwards towards a wall to reduce the odds of him getting killed by automated devices. Hope this helps!
killing it with a sentry or vulture is ok i have killed the leaper many times with them. plz dont post up ideas u think as an answer they mislead people.
