Seriously just me and my mate (2people) for example we did river just then 18mins 9.5k score between two and silver? now in other missions we've had 7-8k and gotten gold?

The escape 18 mins, 9k silver wtf?

time is fine its needed that amount

As far as I know the three main things are time, accuracy, and deaths/incapacitations

Time - Meaningless for the sake of 150 extra points. Your better off using more time to get every headshot you can.

I got 12k and that was gold so if you aim for around 11k that should be enough. Also if your a high level use the no holes barred set.

I did 8 co-op missions today with one person and we never got more than 6000 points per mission. We got Golds on all of them, even some we only got around 3000 point in.

I wouldn't worry about headshots though, I only got a handful by pure chance. I think the more important part is having most of your shots connect with the enemy.

As for time only being worth 150 points, I got Golds on every mission I've done so far and like I've already said I only got around 3000 points on a couple. I don't think the medals are based on point totals themselves, more of how efficiently you do the mission.

Yeah, grab a rifle, lock on and aim up. About half my kills are headshots and assuming you don't get lit up on a regular basis, you should be golden.

When playing I've just been taking my time with a friend. Sniping from a distance and just getting headshots all the way and if you can build a chain then thats a good little boost also. As far as I'm aware its all to do with money and its worked all the way for me. Just this evening I got the mother load achievement (gold on all advanced COOP levels) using the just said method.

confuses me too, i've never went out my way to get gold, but out of about 30 missions. i've only ever had silver once

Chain kills are really important. They can turn $10 per kill into $70 per kill. Factor in the head shots and you should be killing it.

Also, for those that didn't know, the river needs 10.000 points (on advanced). Kill as much as you can while getting a lot of headshots. Accuracy doesn't matter a lot, neither does time.

Going for headshots and chainkills is very important, by doing that I got 4800 points, my two teammates together got 5300. While I didn't have far more kills than them.

All about the headshots

it depends on your time and total team score. for most missions in normal cooperative 7000 or above should do it.
