Apparently it is confirmed that the Nemesis medal is being redone on the Nov 1st DLC. But yeah, most people probably haven't even had the opportunity to execute a nemesis... or even HAD a nemesis to execute!

i think it would be better to instead of executing your nemesis, just killing your last killer (Revenge Ribbon) or something like that, if not, taking that medal for noobs out

i went for my 6000 gun kills on koth to get this. not the fastest by any means but working on guns i refuse to use online makes it a bit more tolerable. i am also lucky enough to have a good group of players to play with so 90% of my matches we 'skunk' the enemy team anyway

the fastest way i think is playing first to 2 on execution or warzone against casual bots. more time spent in loading screens than playing so prepare to be bored and/or play a pc game while you wait thats what i do lol

Nah, I missed War Supporter since I got the game the day after the update came out. I'm taking it easy on getting to the 64 medals since there seems to be only 1 event per week.

Ctl

I found the best way of getting 'untouchable' and 'capture' at the same time is to plug in 2 controllers

Set bots to casual
Fill all bots
1 match to win
Before it switches map exit the game and lauch it again
You're leader everytime.

Might be a bit slow but untouchable is annoying.

I usually lancer kill everyone on the way to the leader

That's a good number. Remember, outside this forum, the numbers are a bit different. I have 10, and everyone is blown away by that number and shocked. Most NORMAL people have 3, maybe 4 or something.

I had already played 500+ rounds of CTL for Abductor, and a lot of Warzone, TDM, etc for getting kills (I have minimum silver in most of the weapon kills and gold in a few). I tried to spot at least once per kill if not more so I had around 7000 spots just playing normally. I finished it off by constantly spotting the leader in a CTL 1:1 game.

You need to get minimum 50000 kills so if you spot once every 3~4 enemies you will get the onyx for spotter in any case. It's hard to miss this medal unless you are not using the spotting feature.

I have 3. Being NORMAL sucks.
lol.
Onyx Horde (solo), Onyx Beast, and Fortification Master. (Fortification HAS to be one of the easiest Onyx medals)

On this note, if you use Nikke's Abductor method, you can get 2-3 spots per kill just simply waiting for spawn shield to disappear. You figure 1000 for Abductor, so minimum 2000 spots, maximum 3000 spots just going for that one medal.

Absolute best is to get 4 friends together and play like thrashball on casual with friendly fire and super reload on. Play like 4 waves then suicide with a grenade.
I just do public horde and leave if the waves start to take longer than 2 min to finish, I found it to be about as fast but a lot less stressful than playing wave 1-4 over and over by myself.

fastest way to get spotter:

you need hori pad ex2 turbo controller:

method1: 2 controller, no bots on KOTH. put the turbo on LS and a rubber band on LT go in enemy spawn and sit in a spot it'll keep spotting make sure to use wired controllers. and after 20 mins rinse and repeat

method2: when you go for 30,000 kill (good on KOTH & TDM) with all 5 primary just turn on turbo on LS you'll most likely finish it before you even notice.

pick your poison
