So... How long do you think it will take to get this pursuit. All I've got left is to get semi-auto up from 2 to 10 and get bolt kills from 900-ish to 5000... 5000 is a lot for sniping...

I'm 1318 / 5000 bolt action kills

Which rampage is a bolt action sniper rifle?
Edit: Hotshot: Bolinas Sniper counts toward this pursuit, so use that to grind your 5000 kills most effectively I think. :D

Sorry to come here and ask a different question, it seemed like it fit with yours in some way. Doing Rampages, do they go towards your pursuits as well? For example getting an smg to level 5. If there was a rampage with an smg weapon does it goes towards the mastery level?!

Kills count toward various things, such as the Overpass minigun rampage counts toward your total kill count of Dark Matter enemies (and also things like your daily/weekly contracts). The LMG rampage also counts toward LMG kills, though it has infinite ammo and you have a TON of enemies coming at you (that is quite useful for LMGs). If the weapon is right, it will count toward kill totals.

However, you will not gain weapon skill as far as I can tell. :D

There's a hotshot with an auto sniper called Sharpshooting savior, every time you zoom in, you auto cloak. Repeat this rampage for easy cloak kills :)

OK - I want to go ahead and confirm for people, Hotshot: Bolinas Sniper counts toward your bolt action kill counts! This is good because A) there are a lot of easy to kill enemies in this, and B) you're actually using a semi-auto sniper rifle even though it counts still, meaning much faster killing overall!

If you can't find it its in the western area of Marin, WSW of Muir FT and NW of Torc's garage.

It's a bit funny rampages and hotshots become the main source for most kill contracts/pursuits. Let's see when they will exclude those from everything.

Well I like it this way too. Finished 4 dailies for dark matter units in the past 4 days and the weekly finished itself basically on the fly from doing the minigun rampage in san fran.

Although there are other "tricks" for finishing some contracts fast as the blasters on farm today. Go to farm (where the data recorder for Run Blade to the Gut or something like that) is there are 8 blasters. Snipe them, takes 1 minute, relog and you will land in a different shard, always it seems, and repeat.

Same for the hides in marin, there is one farm that respawns 7 of them every other minute.

My sniping skills are increasing with this, something I thought wasn't possible (not because I am super awesome, because I honestly felt I was already at my peak skill which was so-so lol).

I'm starting to hit headshots noticeably faster than before. Makes me all warm and fuzzy thinking about trying to snipe more in PVP. :D

Do coop for semi-auto sniper rifle. I recommend exlosion 101 or scrapworks salvage. Dont use 2 burst shot one.
Recoil stock mod is must. U get almost 1 skill level per run.
u can easily buy semi auto sniper rifle from one of hidden vendor.
this part took most of time for this pursuit.

then i started kill farming for bolt-action. (from 1300ish)
It was hard to find good place for farming.
since bolt-action sniper rifle has really small magazine, u need ammo box nearby.
or u have to fight at close-range to loot ammo drop.
I found infinite skitterling regen spot with ammo box near Iron Demon Ranch.
I think this is best spot for kill farming if u dont need great xp. (still u get xp from here.)
(I wont give exact loaction here. sorry.)
I think i did this within 5-6hours. ( I got 1k kill for 1 hour with combat shotgun here. )

04-12-2013, 01:40 AM
best location is for kill farming is bolinas from what i've seen, not to mention that sniper is semi-auto with a quickish reload.

Though I guees hellbug farming could be an idea.

Playing my second char up now, trying to use bolt action as much as possible while leveling, hopefully ill be atleast 2500-3000 by the time I finish story, and commando should be done easily by then.

I use bolt action sniper in the open world 24/7, its pretty much my main weapon, the Frontier Repeater is absolutely the highest damage sniper and can take off normal enemy heads in 1 shot. For this, I use the perk Assassin's Cache, which regenerates 3% ammo per crit kill, which is not alot I know. But I hardly miss with the headshots regardless, so getting that 1 bullet I spend for that 1 hit kill is good enough for me. In San Francisco, fighting the Dark Matter troops for 1 hit kill on normal mobs requires the Frontier Repeater. For anything before San Francisco, I find the Votan Bolter the best. Its a 1.2 fire rate bolt action, with 10 clip mag, and can kill normal mobs with 1 crit hit as well. Whats also great about it is that this is a scout, which you can hip fire with. Though preferably you can just crouch and hip fire plus it has no bloom, or none that I can see. So were you aim at is where you hit regardless if you are jumping or firing rapidly.

Semi-Auto from 0 to 10 (not looking forward to that, I hate those rifles)

Used Bolt snipe for 95% of all kills during every quest. Rest kills did in quarry tower (or however is called that location southeast from Crater) - fast clear with VOT bolter with pvp queue. There are cca 30+ targets and easy miniboss droping mostly blues, hop into PvP to reset mobs. Autosnipe is best in coop 101/scrapworks.

Yeah, I've been running around with a semi-auto lately to level it... I can't stand them either.

Yeah I'm currently down to just the Semi-Auto skill level to finish mine.

Man, the rest of it seems easy compared to this - I have a bar to gauge my progress but theres no numbers in it besides the level. I just feel like I'm starting to lose the will to grind. O.o

I need a really good consistent farm spot I guess. I thought it would be better to just go around doing whatever, but I kinda want to push for this and get it done! :D

Good luck everyone else working on this. :D

If you go to the Verdant Ridge, the mobs there spawn constantly after you finish breaking the satellite dish.

You'll probably want to hide up in the barn if you're going to try it though (watch out for the stairs in the back). You will be swarmed.

For the cloaked kills do they count if you snipe while using cloak now. Before that did not count since you exit cloak when fireing. You had to use a grenade or a dot to get the kill after you go back into cloak.

Using the semi sniper is a pain since it takes so many hits to kill. If it can't kill nor.all mobs in 1 head shot its not really a sniper.

I'm finished all but the bolt action 3683/5000 and I refuse to use the Hotshot: bolinas sniper challenge. Firstly, it's boring as shtako lol. Second, do keep in mind this will not raise your effective bolt action skill level. I'm at skill lvl 11 in semi auto and currently skill 14 in bolt action. I'll likely be 16 by the time I'm finished and people using the hotshot will be sitting at 10-12 tops most likely.

I also disliked the semi-auto's for a while...even posted about it lol. But I quite like them now. Some of them allow for staying scoped in constantly and you can REALLY lay down the pain on tougher enemies that do not recoil. For bolt action I'm currently using the green frontier with 1.15% crit mutli and just throwing on a mag +2/barrel 1.03 hip-aim. It's slow but if you have the aim things fall down.

They do count now while sniping + cloak.

I agree the semi's can be annoying. I found them best against big enemies that do not flinch. You can unload entire clips into their face as fast as you can fire. The best ones come with crit multi baked in but that is rare.

4606/5000 now. I can almost taste it. Been driving from one end of the map to the other doing every road side mission I can find and any other interesting place were the missions reset. Pretty sure I'll end at bolt action skill 17 when this is one.

This is some serious Boring goal to get!

I'm 1925 / 5000 bolt action kills
500 / 500 cloaked kills
And need to level up a semi-auto to 10(lvl 4 atm.)

The 5000 bolt action kills is Really killing me, i tryed that hotshot & zZzZzz It's way to Boring doing that over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over again.

Wish they would Lower some of those goals, it's really a Boring grind fest.

Also, the reward is a crap azz ugly suit, im only doing this for the title.

I would stay behind "New Freedom" carrier by E-Rep & snipe the mutants. Dow the field there usually 4 guys jumping out of a Van running towards a group of E-Reps to the North-east there's 2 above an off hill drain. Then north you have 4 more mutants closer to the carrier. 10 guys who respawn constantly, that's how I did it. Plus due to lower lvl it takes 1shot regardless of body, except when you have another player it seems to cause you to shoot a few times, idk why.

Take the perk that regens ammo on critical kill. You should be getting those with a sniper anyway so you will never run out of ammo.

I would say around... a week, week and a half time to get it. I do mix of arkfall hunting, 4 man co op, random location sniping. If you just focus on just sniping and all. Maybe faster. . I didn't really do that hotshot to get it. I rather go some where else to do it.

I always cringe when I see people suggesting rampages/hotshots for leveling "kill quantity". Last time I looked, you didn't get weapon experience, so I prefer to farm areas where I multi-task.

There are a number of repeatable missions that are good for sniping (Kenn Farm, Sutro Tower, Big Stone) and these result in normal xp, weapon xp, loot drops, keys, kill-count... the whole enchilada.

Are they as fast for kill-count? No. But you are progressing other aspects of your character at the same time.

I want the title, the outfit, and the ego rating reward. I don't like sniping, so having a high lvl bolt action sniper rifle is useless to me. As soon as I have the 5K kill, I'll drop the sniping gun and will never use it again.
Also, bolinas reward ark salvage, credit, xp, and a mod. If you are lucky, you can even have a synergy mod (2 so far).

So yeah, for me, the challenge is nice for that.

Bolinas Hotshot is how I got my 5000 kills. It was a bit boring, but it didn't take as long as I thought it would. Grinding kills with actual enemies takes too long with the bolt-action rifles.

I had my perks set up to kill most enemies in 1 hit anywhere on their body, with the exception of goldrushers and the blacklung.

The most useful perks were Height Advantage(3),Sucker Punch(3), and possibly Nerves of Steel(3, not sure if it works if the enemies can't see you). Assassin's Cache(3) was also very useful in keeping my ammo up in case I missed(mostly due to poor hit detection). Single-minded helps to reduce downtime between reloads, which helps you finish the level quicker

I was fairly consistentently getting gold once I changed my perks, so even if I didn't get proficiency, I got several good weapon mods.

If I want proficiency Hulkers and Forges are more efficient than killing 5000 enemies the normal way.

Well for the sniper bolt action rifle kills I did all mine farming this one area that's just when you first go into bloodbath goerge ( cant spell lol ) its also the first stop you put a device down when your using that hauler cass brings you where there are mutants around. Heres why I used it and let me say it took a while but . . . .

- There is a ammo box there so pretty much no running away to get more ammo

- Most the time I was there after I would kill off certain set of mutants other ones would respawn back I might at times had to wait around a min tops.

- Doing this here also if you run out of bolt action rifles to level for the weapons rank there is a vendor not to far from the site.

I went from around 1k kills to 5k in this spot but it took me around maybe 6 - 8 hours worth though plus I also got my bolt action rifles to rank 20 in this spot at the same time too once I got the 5k kills I was around rank 18 almost to 19 and just finished it up there.

I would not do this the hotshot if your doing it is for using that shotgun not a sniper rifle aka this would be an expliot. If your able to swap out your weapon for this hotshot challenge I hope you reported this bug, cause do not matter if I test it and it works I will report it.

Also ammo regernating perks should also not be working in those challenges the point of it is to get a score with the limited ammo your given, there are only certain challenges that lets you get more ammo as part of the challenge but this is not one of them.

I guess I can see that, if you're not interested in leveling the weapon skill.

I actually like leveling up the weapons skills too (for instance, I've got Assault Rifles 20 and LMG 15 while working on Going Commando and Stout Tactics). I'd like to take Bolt-Action Sniper Rifles to skill 20, so 5k kills will happen organically as I level the weapon skill.

Correct. You need to get your semi-automatic sniper skill up to 10 for the 'Snipe from the Shadows III' pursuit, but level 20 is the max skill for weapons.

Yezz

Don't mind the bolt-action-skill, you'll get to 20 WAY before 5000 kills. Well, if you get your kills in regular gameplay.

378/500 Cloaked Kills for me
The best way I've found to upgrade Semi-Autos is to put a DMG increase mod on, then go to San Francisco and get lots of head shots on Dark Matter, Enforcers give about 30 xp for criticals and it's open enough to get several shots in before your swarmed, and you can use cloak to find a new sniping point.

Whenever I need to level up a weapon or get the 5k kill count for a pursuit, I just replay the Main Mission. I have the pursuit oriented weapon as my primary and a decent fallback weapon that I'm used to as a secondary. I did the Pistol, SMG, Infector, Combat Shotgun, Sawed-Off, etc. this way, if I reached my "weapon goal" mid way through finishing the Main Mission then I swap it for another pursuit oriented weapon. Its also a good source of weapon exp. that you don't get at Hotshots, Scrip & Salvage, and loot.

I've about had it with trying to get the 5000 kills with the bolt action. It actually makes me enjoy the semi autos. Damn why did they have to kill the XP from the mutants at the earth camp?

Seriously, there has got to be an easier way right? I'm not above glitching for this.

One of the mines requires you to activate and protect a device until it is finished uploading. Do that one, let the raiders disable the device, stand in a tower and just keep sniping the infinite loop until you are bored or done, then go down and reactivate the device. I did that back in April, when then game was released. I'd go there and get between five hundred and thousand kills a day, until I got it.

beats grinding Bolinas for no xp or loot.

Any other short cuts?

That sounds like the right one. I always sniped from high up and used the perks that give me more damage from above and the more damage while crouched. Back then I also used cloak, but Oc would be a good choice as well. I felt that it was also helpful to use the perks that helped me reload faster, since some Bas have a long reload time.

I dunno, Dude.
I kinda like taking 'toons through Assassin and Tank.
Maybe thats just me, eh?

So what's the Diablo station kills glitch?

I've about had it with trying to get the 5000 kills with the bolt action. It actually makes me enjoy the semi autos. Damn why did they have to kill the XP from the mutants at the earth camp?

Seriously, there has got to be an easier way right? I'm not above glitching for this.

Try to find a quiet shard so you don't interrupt any newbies. Use sniper ridge the same way you would the mutants at the Erep camp. You will receive 1 key per run as well as accomplishing your other goals at the same time. Each time you finish Sniper Ridge, fast travel back to Erep camp, rinse and repeat.
