120 completed arcade chapters per hour

Thought this deserved a thread of it's own, came up with this awesome method after the reload checkpoint trick at 3-1 was posted here a few days ago. Can also be used to get the "First Among Equals" achievement in about 30 minutes.

Wow, I gotta do that. The best method I've seen for Number 1, and completing chapters without dying.

I was thinking if that would work for that level, wasn't sure when it check pointed though. Nice find as well!
I definitely will be doing this tomorrow once I finish my last 2 remaining Beast Mode Onyx medals.

I'm going to try and see if I can get x10. If I can't after a few attempts I'll just do it on 2-7 as its fastest that way.

Ive realized reloading doesn't keep the multiplier so its pointless to try it now.

the 95% means he has at least a bronze in all medals. it doesn't mean he's 95% to all onyx.

great find i'm just pissed I got all the campaign onyx done

Awesome! I wasted too much time on 2-7. I should just pick the game back up in a month and see what other onyx methods are found. No need to waste time now.

Very very nice. If you do this on Insane with hard mutators, will the XP earned by half decent, or should I not even bother?

Edit: nvm I saw the other thread. 1000XP per completion is pretty good.

I heard you will gain 1000 Exp in every 8 seconds ,is that true?

I mean if you reload the checkpoint and finish it ,will you gain the 1000 exp?

That would be awesome ,can somebody confirm this?

Every 8 Seconds 1000 exp...omg....sounds unbelievable good.

This method is excellent! IM using it right now anyway you could post what medals we are working on and the numbers for them? i know it says them briefly in the video but im a visual learner :P

update: nevermind i took the stats from ctrl alt defeats spreadsheet and posted them here

King of Cog xxxxxx 1mil 2mil 5mil 7500000
Number 1 xxxxxx 20 60 140 240
Survivalist xxxxxx 20 60 120 240
Aficinado xxxxxx 50 150 300 500


update: after the 15th time i noticed that the gate did not lift up, the DBNO locust that triggered the checkpoint was up now and he cant die, he kind of follows COG around like hes part of the team lol. so make sure u kill all ur enemies and not down them, or you might end up boosting a bit slower like me

Last edited by nanochef; 10-12-2011 at 01:47 PM. Reason: 1)added medals 2) funny glitch

I just finished off the number 1 achievement. I had done about 20 times through on chapter 2-7, but just got too bored to finish it. Now I've got everything except the gears event achievement and seriously 3.0 thanks to this brilliant method.

I gained about 22,000 exp doing this about 40 times and it took about 18 minutes. Only 5000 experience was from the medals I got, so it looks like a good method to boost levels as well. I did it on hardcore with super reload, unlimited ammo, and no ammo pickups.

I bet if you wanted to boost levels and gain exp the fastest then you could put it on insane with mutators to boost the score even more. I guess due to the recent experience balancing there is more exp to be gained from the campaign which makes this method even more worthwhile.
