just trying to get the gold on this one has turned into a nightmare. What is the trick to pulling off a gold?

I have 2 other guys with me and we make it through in just over 13:00 and its always a silver.

Time isnt a prob on the river on advanced, the whole team have to get 10000 combined points to get gold medal, any less and its silver all the way.

By far the hardest mission on advanced, tough mission to carry weak team members, this took me several tries till I found a decent team.

I did 2 people and all headshots we got over 10000.

4 people - 10,000+ for gold

3 people - 7500+ for gold

2 people - 5000+ for gold

On topic: I did this with one other person and we each got about 4500 each. Just go for headshots and mainly use the high power pistol and Evan's Repeater as they are the most powerful and useful.

This was by far the toughest mission to gold also.

If you need help getting gold on the River, I can help you. Me and a random got gold on it the first time we tried.

Just had 2 guys complete this and scored 5900 and it was still a silver.

Are you sure it was on advanced mode?

I remember playing with one of my friends and he needed The River for his last achievement. I helped him, scored about 6000 and he got roughly 1200. After we beat the mission, we got gold and his achievement popped.

Maybe because there are much more enemies than any other mission (except Ammunition) the gold requirement is much higher. Not sure though.

I should have clarified. This is on REGULAR.

3 people 7500? That can't be right. I've done this mission with 2 others with over 8000 points and we kept getting Silver! wtf?! :mad:

Yeah, something is goofy with this one. Myself and one other made it through multiple times last night with scores as high as 7200 and it was still silver.

You can use the "run whatcha brung" class in the advanced mode. But not in regular.

This is now seriosuly getting annoying, this is the only mission I now have left to gold on advanced and I'm done but I just cannot do it! 10,000 points is impossbile, and with three people we just fail, how - is - gold - possible?! and does anyone want to do it with me?

I found that I could only earn a gold on this either with advanced or not is to make sure everyone has a decent but even score. I've always played with 4 people though. The major problem with this mission is that while riding down on the raft, your scores only count when you start to chain kills. Unless it's been fixed.

You have to really make sure everyone gets a decent score over 2,000+. If someone dies and misses out on a lot of points it seems to affect the overall outcome, or from what I've seen anyhow. It's definitely the worst mission on the DLC and bar far the hardest to complete with a gold.

Thanks for that Fizz. Well I finally done it at least! Ended up with 13000 points actually! was playing with 2 other pros and really the only trick is to simply take your time and get all headshots, seeing as we only needed 7500 but ended up with 13000, it ain't hard.

Just 2 of us and we scored 88 95 still no gold. This mission is really starting to grate! Last achievement I need for 100%

3 people - 7500+ for gold

2 people - 5000+ for gold


This list appears to be WRONG. It doesn't matter how many people I've played the River with (2, 3 or 4), we only get gold if we get 10,000 points.

Get lots of head-shots and chain kills, and avoid using dynamite, is the best advice I have.

I'm struggling on this one also i wouldn't mind if i could do it on my own but every time i try it with someone they charge in and get blasted and wonder why we fail when I die making an attempt to heal them :(

That is the mistake a lot of players make. You really gotta take your time clearing out the bandits when you get on land. Time is not a big factor in getting gold. I tell everyone when playing the River to stick fairly close together and NOT RUSH IN! It's not that hard to accomplish gold if everyone can be patient.

Thats the thing persuading them to be patient. Some people just think their way is best and when you try to advise them they either don't listen or scream a variable list of profanity aimed towards me, my mother and/ or any other person they think funny to scream about.

digital821 if your wanting to go through all of the missions then send me a friend request and message saying who you are (tags Juksey) and I'll go through them with you :)

I finally ended up getting gold on advanced! I started out in a room with 3 other randoms. They were running around gunning and not caring about headshots like most randoms but I paced myself and made sure that I got plenty of headshots as we made our way along. At one point, one of them quit but we kept going. Then at the last part where you have to blow up those things someone else quit after they died. So there were only 2 of us left at the end. He end up with 3455 points and I had 5910. In total we had somewhere around 11,000. The trick is definitely the headshots and to some extent the kill combo things.

The buffalo rifle worked wonders since it is usually a one shot kill so you just aim at the head once and don't have to worry about aiming again.

Is it that much different than on regular? I used the Marksman and that worked really well. I imagine the ambushes couldn't have been much fun though in that.

Very much different. With no auto-aim, it makes headshots a lot harder; as well as the random ambushes when you're on a boat with no cover.

It's not too tough though. I did it with one other person and got gold with no problem. I think I scored around 7-8000 points while he only got like 2000. ;)

Off topic: TFU. What's with you posting in every single thread on the 'Outlaws to End' section? You posted in 13 threads in a timespan of 30 minutes. Which leaves you with 2-3 minutes viewing/posting in each thread. Just wondering. :p

Anyone want to try this tonight? I still have Gold Medal this and "The Escape" on Advanced. Send me a message if you're interested. Also, if anyone just wants to play for the sake of helping that would be cool too.

Have you tested this? I was almost certain you needed 10.000 for 3 players as well. I guess we got gold with a 3000 points margin then.
