How do you set the difficulty of Beast mode? I haven't seen that anywhere.

Dont think you can set the difficulty in public games, if that answers your question. Its hard to miss when you set up a private game of beast.

Figures that it's only available in private matches. Still, it seems a bit silly that you can't set up a public beast game like you want.

For Veteran, will that work? You have to do matches, not rounds, so the 1 minute method will gain you rounds but not matches.

The bots playing the game will either win / lose as a result. Yes, this will work, but it will likely take a long time still.

You do still get EXP because when I went to bed I was level 20 and when I woke up I was 21...but since I mainly did this to farm match types it's no biggie.

This is also good for farming Battle Maiden. I've been playing as Sam since I started the game to work towards that medal and hit silver level of Battle Maiden last night before bed...this morning I woke up with 411/500 towards gold level. If I keep doing that I'll soon be able to get back to playing as Dizzy as I normally do in Gears and not worry about missing out on an Onyx medal.
Is this also a great method to boost wingman games? How do u get exp without killing anyone if u set up all bots on insane?

It works but Wingman games will take a lot longer, looking at up to 10 min per game.

Hopefully EPIC realises this is madness, and make a ton of events making it easier to achieve some of these onyx medals. I know I will never get them all as the requirements stands right now.

They're not meant to be easy to get either though. This achievement is for those really dedicated to the game, and EPIC knows people will play this for a long time.

And not just time consuming, like the Vengeful medal forces you to suck on purpose to get it. I rarely die against anyone 5 damn times in a row but if I want the achievement I'll have to end up boosting it. Wouldn't be so bad if it wasn't such a high number for those types of medals.

I guess a lot of split screen matches will be played.

* 5 kills with controller 2.
* Nemesis kill with controller 1.


Rinse and fucking repeat.

What's the last 3 brackets btw? 75 for bronze then what's the rest?

Vengeful is probably going to be one of my last medals. That one is looking very tedious to do.

Already thought about this

Method:

Veteran + Battle Mistress + Warzone = 1000 games done (1000 to onyx Battle Mistress)

That leaves 2000 games left each of Veteran and Warzone to onyx those.

How quick would these 3000 matches take?

You can also get the Skunker medal by setting the rounds to 2 in Warzone. If you're fast at killing them on casual, then you can knock those medals out pretty quickly.

Can you do this by setting it to 1 minute and filling with bots and making sure the controller doesn't go inactive/idle so you can farm matches?

You can do Veteran, Battle Mistress and Warzone/Execution this way - i.e. not actually playing the games.

EDIT: If you have to play the 2 round games to get Skunker, then you should also go for MVP (finishing with the most points) as you can earn this in private matches too. 5 medals in 1 game type.

It really depends whether the bots win both of the rounds.

Manually playing i was going for First Blood, MVP, Skunker, Battle Mistress, Veteran, Warzone, Executions, Lancer kills and Spotter.

Maybe more, but i'm trying to knock out a lot of medals by playing in a single mode so far. Right now i'm playing Beast because they're easier with other players around.

I would suggest doing CTL for veteran so you don't get as many deaths. Just play as locust and it counts toward battle mistress.

Hi guys i wanna put my two cents in for x360a's great community
Imma break the warzone-battlemistress-guide down for you.

The reason people do this is, weve got to play an insanely huge amount of matches in each gameMODE this is absurd in my eyes. So some smart people found smart ways to bypass the rediculous amount of time weve got to put in to get the same result.

I strongly recommend a wired controller or play and charge kit. This to prevent your controller from switching off after inactivity.
I strongly recommend to place your console in an well ventilated area since overheating isnt a rare thing with our consoles.
I strongly recommend you turn off Vibration, (found under controller settings) this is perfect for when you are sleeping.
I strongly recommend you choose an female character, as this will also count for the battlemaid medal which you can simultaneously boost. (great eh 2 for 1)

Now that you are well prepared lets get started.
-Go in to the versus menu
- choose private match
- select game type you want to boost( warzone, execution, TDM, wingman. Im not sure about the objectivebased gametypes)
- set game time to 1 minute ( the faster the better right?)
- set number of bots to "fill". (this to ensure that the bots start to killing eachother resulting in a random score before the match ends at 1 minute. This way the games will never be undecided. Thus counting as a win/loss and you automatically moves on to the next match. )
- set bot difficulty to "insane" this way the bots will move faster into action.
- start up the match.
Monitor the match see if everything goes well. Maybe you did something wrong an this way you can make sure.
- if everything goes well, turnoff your screen go to work/school/etc and your done.

I hope this helped a bit. Feel free to add or give feedback as this is meant to help.

Peace, Scarface


Ps: my english might not be perfect as i am foreign. My appologies

My guess is, that he was probably close to levelling up. And when you get medals you get exp too. So with silver medal unlocking he earned a lot of exp. Hence the level up...i guess

Here is my thoughts if they patched socialite, don't download the patch and do 29 matches and then download the patch and the achievement should pop after one game, you would think right? I may try this tomorrow and let you know how it goes.
