    Hardest challenge

    xoMrSLAVEox

      Whats hardest challenge in extinction? For me its that challenge were you have to kill 25 aliens with sniper rifles, atleast if it comes later in game were aliens attack you like crazy.

      Any opinions?

          Yes a discussion!!.

           

          • Keep shot accuracy at 75% or higher until the hive is destroyed.

           

          half way or towards the end this challenge always fails in game

           

          • Spend $20,000 before the hive is destroyed. (Last Hive only, $15,000 with three or less players)

           

          This one here I find difficult when running relics as well as team mates (or trying to get compeletionist) - Usually fail this

           

          I think the spend $20 000 is the hardest for me xoMrSLAVEox

            On relic solo matches prone for definite now they made it so traps don't count. If I get it it's a instant restart

              The hardest challenge probably is the have each player damage 10 aliens, kill 5 aliens that are in air, or kill 20 aliens while everyone is prone. The first one requires impecible teamwork and luck to complete because shooting one too many times could screw the challenge but one too few could cause you all to die. The second one you just need great timing but also luck because aside from gargoyles every other alien is hard to track. And the las one requires so much communication because you have to defend each other and if one person goes down the whole challenge could be over

                  Kill (X) number of marked aliens before any others can be quite difficult depending on your playing style for the particular map. If you are going for score and are using GT's, one false Grenade and challenge over. Worst for me playing on Solo, no Relics, has to be the mid-air kills. Without the help of a Venom-X, I have a very hard time. Thankfully Solo only requires 3 kills! My least favorite on Solo while using Relics, is do not reload for 60 seconds or do not use abilities for 90 seconds. If you are doing Solo Relic runs, these can make things a little tough to complete. On Multiplayer, I would agree and say one of the challenges that requires the most skill and communication is the one that requires (X) amount of kills with each individual player damaging the same alien before it dies.

                    The challenge where every player has to damage aliens is quite easy if you all switch to pistols, give it a try next time think you will find it easier

                        It's virtually impossible and far from easy if you get that challenge in the first area on Nightfall, and have incendiary ammo equipped. You only get 2 hunters and 1 scorpion, the rest are scouts and seekers, which obviously die after a couple of people have put a bullet into them.

                         

                        They definitely need to remove that challenge from appearing in the first area on Nightfall. They really do.

                            Agreed; this is next to impossible when using incendiary or explosives in the first area of NightFall.

                            I've done it with Armor Piercing but it was still very difficult.

                             

                            NightFall challenges just appear at the wrong locations.  I forget the exact amounts but we also get two challenges requiring us to spend money and I almost always gets the higher amount of money challenge in the second area and then get the smaller amount of money challenge in the third area; this should be reversed.

                              Must say that I have never had that challenge on the 1st area of nightfall, usually get it on later areas, but I do agree with you that it would be very difficult in the 1st area

                            Best to use pistols on the that challenge - it does become a luck factor but achievable, like most when committed.

                            The prone challenge - I find simple, as for the recent update with the traps, I can't think of a time when I activated a trap or my fellow team mates did, we just drop to the ground an start blasting our pistols / any weapon

                            You done the $20 000 yet? with relics?...I'm still yet to do, when I'm preped for it ,it's a no show

                            My hardest challenge was on awakening today, it was kills 10 aliens while in the circle, normally this is not that hard but today the circle was in an area that was un-accessible!!!! That's not hard its impossible lol

                                  Nightfall when the traps are still on from the previous hive and it is kill the 5 marked aliens the first unmarked one steps on the electric fence before the marked ones even show up

                                   

                                  //fail

                                    The sniper one isn't that hard at all, you just need to have 2 - 4 people doing it, or if it is only 2 people doing it, they ideally should be weapon specialist with it fully upgraded. Even on later hives on Nightfall, doing this is easy. Just be sure to kill those rhino's first if you get it at the final hive. Also one thing a lot do is everyone runs off to the sniper. Have 2 people stay near the drill, whilst 2 go get it, when they get back, the other 2 go get it.

                                      ok, not the hardest; but the one I hate most is find the Leper.  I hate the leper.

                                      I just hate looking for him.  I stay at the drill and shoot everything that I see.

                                          I really do think that sometimes the Leper doesn't show up. I have Feral and spin in circles but never find it. Even with four very experienced players it's impossible to find sometimes. I really don't think that challenge in 100% effective.
