    Hotshot: Preemptive Counterstrike - Still broken

    I just spent more than 25 minutes doing the "Hotshot: Preemptive Counterstrike" challenge for the pursuit. After about 1 million points I was getting tired / bored and kept hoping there was a timer or something. After 2 million points and a highest multiplier of 250+ I gave up…and the score was zilch.





    So I guess this is (still) broken. I did a quick forum search afterwards and found this:

    How didn't you run out of ammo?

    Probably had the ammo perks on his loadout. Next time just switch to a loadout with no ammo perks and eventually you'll run out of ammo and the challenge will end.

    Thanks for the replies. These are the perks I had on:
    • Just Reward
    • Feedback
    • Blast Shield
    • Execution
    • Shadowed Strike
    • Killing Spree
    • Shadow’s Core
    • Deadly Cascade
    • Regeneration
    Out of those, which would give me ammo?

    I checked my cyber rig and it doesn’t have ammo regen enabled either.

    I’m going to try it again with no perks and no rig…

    Then how did you keep getting more ammo? It doesn't just magically regenerate now does it.

    As I said, the challenge is broken. I'm not the only one to have experienced this...as I said in the original post.

    It's not broken you're just doing something wrong.

    LOL I'm not going round picking up ammo. I'm staying in the exact same spot! My feet never moved...it's a hotshot challenge.

    My mistake then. Well that's odd. When you shoot does it not use your ammo at all?

    After various tests I found that the exact cause was my Prime Evolver Mark II cyber rig. Although it has no ammo regeneration chips, it does have the ‘Reserve Feed’ ability, which is currently at 90/150 charge and provides 2% ammo regen / 10 sec.

    Due to the relatively slow fire rate required for the challenge (and with this cyber rig equipped), the ammo would go down, but then would soon creep back up again. As I have not delved much into cyber rigs at the moment, I was not even aware of this feature.
