Brutal method, works perfect, actually I used the Stomp attack since holding the X button made me get hit more times since you freeze for a second or two.

I'm trying to grind this out now and i have a streak of 157'ish and x20 multiplier and each time i kill a small worm with the full upgraded charged attack i only get 100points/worm. Is this what's supposed to happen?

How on earth are people getting 30k coins in 10 minutes?

Thanks for posting this method. I can't imagine how much time this saved me.

It worked perfectly. Grinded out the remaining 95k and it worked like a charm. Another 1k in the books. :-)

I feel your pain, that happened to me too. That was why after that, I would kill the boss after i accumulated 50k or more, quit the game and then restart the checkpoint.

That way my stars accumulated would be saved.

Sorry bro. But it could be worse. I was grinding points in Monsters vs. Aliens and I was 200 Monster DNA and 1200 points away from my two achievements, and my Xbox red ringed. New Slim makes grinding all night a breeze!

This neglects to indicate that you also NEED to upgrade other sections like stars given for combat, dispatch etc in order to rack up 100 stars per worm killed. Also by upgrading is how you get bigger multiplier. At first i only had upgraded what suki said and only got 5x multiplier and got only 50k stars in about forty mins, after i upgraded fully then that's when stuff described in the guide started happening.
So with that said, grind a bit to fully upgrade the combat related(or all if you could) , then go like the OP says

Should mention in this that the stars stop appearing so people realize grinding this way is from the melee bonus stars. Some may not realize that and try to just shoot the little worms repeatedly.

Thanks so much for this. I had the game freeze up on me once doing this when I was almost done, which was quite frustrating, but otherwise a great strategy. Couldn't imagine having to do this in the context of the game, would've drove me crazy.

Worked like a dream - took about 50 minutes for the last 100k I needed. In hindsight if I had to play this again i would probably grind this through for about 100k right at the beginning so that i could max up the charge attack, coin boost, gun and special weapons upgrades - it would make the rest of the game quicker.
Thanks for the strategy...

Am I doing something wrong? They stop dropping stars after the 4th respawn or so for me.

How anyone thinks this is faster or better or easier than the level 8 method is beyond me.

I did it on the first stage as well as "Return of the rattlesnake Jack" stage.

Everything being equal (20x multiplier and fully upgraded charge attack and charged attack range), I preferred the later stage as there are more enemies and the worm is more powerful and split out more small worms at a faster pace.

The disadvantage is of cos the explosive nature of the small worms (tendency to get injured when using your charged attack). However if both your charge speed and range are fully upgraded, then it's not really an issue.

Got it within 30 minutes.
