Anyone know of any other turbo controlers that would work that can be bought at locally, i.e. gamestop, etc?

I have a Street fighter fightstick, but not at home to see it it will work, I doubt it though.

Thanks

Difficulty won't affect ribbon XP.

I don't have the Friendly Fire Mutator but could an Ink/Incendiary Grenade suicide work? It only costs 1500 to buy back in so you can afford it. Only other method of death I can think of are the Kryll in Bullet Marsh, but idk if the sandbags by the Longshot are sufficient for holding the weapon in place.

I should be able to test this in a while if nobody else gets around to it (can't get to second controller atm), but I figured I'd bring it up in case somebody can try it sooner and/or they also need a workaround to the Mutator.

Hell, I would. It's probably only a matter of time before Epic finds this and decides to make this a one-per-wave ribbon like Combat Engineer.

Trying this on Insane difficulty. Seeing how much of a difference it makes, if any.

Also, woke up this morning to find that the fun had landed weird and was no longer being picked up. Damn! Time to find out how much XP I earned. I hope it didn't happen right after I turned off the TV...

EDIT: Awwww, damn! I only got about 41k of XP. Which suggests it stopped working pretty quickly after I turned off the tv. Damnit!

EDIT 2: I think I figured out the problem. I wasn't in the perfect position in the corner so the gun made a weird bounce and my controller spamming X couldn't pick it up. Fixed! Boosting away!

Just bought Ink on Checkout, and downed myself with it. Just bleed out. It worked fine, and you have enough money to buy yourself back in. Haven't tried Bulletmarsh, but I figured Checkout would be a better test for you.

Thanks for confirming! Just did it myself and its smooth sailing. I don't have a turbo controller but this is still faster than playing out matches!

No problem, I myself don't have a turbo controller. My thumb is wishing I did, but alas, this is much better for me then the 3-1 method. Good luck!

Great method, lots of respect for sharing

My Hori pad is getting a nice work out now Knew it was worth importing one all the way from America, hell it was worth getting one just to do the spotter onyx and the buttoned up this is just the icing on the cake

Thanks again for the share

Same here. And the stock wasn't limited like it is now when I bought mine. The price hike and low supply could be due to Gears. :P

If it makes you feel any better, there is a beer I want to try. The beer, however, is 35.00 a bottle (330ml) and shipping is 40.00 to get it to the US from Scotland. That comes out to be about $117.00 for a single bottle of beer. Sigh...

They are out of stock, lol. Glad I ordered when I did. That seller should give you a cut, you just made him $200 or more if there were more than 4.

This will be well worth the cost as I was dreading the 3-1 method.

Thanks for letting me know the datel would not work.
