Ghosts Extinction

9.  Why on solo runs do people sometimes randomly empty their pistol clip?  I have seen several different people doing this on 9 relic runs...since ammo is at a premium so I'm sure there is a reason but can't think of what it would be.

I don't see how there would be any strategy behind this... I could see doing it for fun knowing you are going to earn about $2K a hive so you could empty the clip, buy more ammo and then finish the hive and make all that money back and max out your small wallet. Maybe people do this to spend more and increae their score at a given hive.

They always do it in between hives and it seems purposeful, but who knows.  I just saw a few different people do it so was wondering.

The helicopter isnt much help, dont waste your $$$ on it. The only thing that can help is the dual pistol ark on magnums on the escape.

Its ALWAYS good to have your ammo emptied out so you dont accidently shoot trying to get into the turret, 1 shot can blow your score on a hive significantly, especially on solo. You dont have to do it, but its always good to do so, especially running 9 relics since youll never find ammo clips or deploy ammo.

I know it's not much help, I always laugh at noobs pouring their $ into it in coop...although I've given up trying to stop them.  I just thought even a little help might mean the difference.  It would be easy to put $1,000 into it when I 1st get into the 2nd area, and again upon entering the 3rd area...then put another grand right before run and still have $2,000 left to drop that much need sentry (rhino decoy)...what do you think?

9 Relics solo the reason people empty pistol because what profound said and also if your running 9 Relics & get spend 6,000 u can buy ammo. Cause your sentry should be out and GTsince your emptying out or sabotaging your sentry before hive ends and getting bonus money. to have fresh ssntry and grenade turret. It's hard to use 6 grenade turrets lol. & u need every dollar u can cause 6,000 is hard to spend on solo smaller wallet 9 relics 2nd area POc or mayday . Or awakening 1at area so emptying pistol prior hive is good. You'll understand when u experience that

wwhat I'm trying to say is money is limited and since u Can only spend on sentry and GT or PT with 9 relics, usually have 3K starting hive and 1 fresh GT and 1 sentry. U need to be able to spend some money as soon as u see the 6000 challenge . U don't wana be getting 0$'s cause money is so damn tight and limited in 1st and 2nd area in order for u to actually spend it. So buy the ammo. Waste your GT buy nezt GT and you'll hopefully get the challenge. It's a challenge actually trying to achieve the challenge. Make sure to look around and see where u can spend some money. Sometimes u need 300 or 500 to go. Spending on a trap before hive ends can help you . it all comes down to that.

Im assuming your watching a decent or high score 9 relic run cause u can always run slow and spend money while sacrificing personal skill and DP. This is a way to surpass that dilemma

Yes, trying 9 relic solo, just poc for now.  Emptying the clip for spend $6000 is good idea...thanks.  I almost always fail that challenge, like you said trying to empty 6 GT's is almost impossible- this would help.  I just can't make the run back. I can make it to setting the nuke now with 0 downs about 75% of the time, but that run back (or brisk paced walk in reality)....damnit.

Would you buy the chopper?

Thanks for the help.

I Still have a lot to do man solo wise and just got ps4 lol withAW and plus my team is doing co-op . I haven't had any solo time in a long time. But chopper is useless but if u have extra $ it wouldnt hurt.. I haven't done 9 relics on poc yet but shouldn't be to hard. Just watch romain_du_ 83 or whatever forgot to spell his name.WR poc I believe . He's good . I think u have to use GT glitch cause you'll die lol.
