Now is the time to grind horde waves.

So with the changes Epic made to Horde mode for this weekend, there are fewer enemies overall meaning faster waves.

The Horde Rustlung method can be found HERE.

We all know about the Rustlung method by now. Thing is, you only need 4 characters not 5 to control the spawns. One at silverback and one at the center base (right where you buy it) is enough. So two people with two controllers can do it.

Prior to this weekend, there were typically 7 enemies in Wave 1. Now, there are 3 (three boomers). Instead of lots of small drones, there are mostly larger enemies like boomers, maulers, kantus. Also lots of polyps and formers which drop like flies.

The result is that even though the enemies are larger, since they die fast to super reloads anyway, the waves are at LEAST 10 seconds faster on average. I've finished waves in as little as 7 seconds tonight. My partner and I do waves 1-19 with Super Reload, Instagib, and Friendly Fire on so we can suicide on wave 20 and start over from wave 1.

Also, the wave challenges are coming MUCH more frequently, every other wave except for boss waves (i.e. waves 2, 4, 6, 8, 11, 13, 15, 17, 19).

At any rate I'm earning more cash and finishing waves faster than ever. Heads up everyone, if you need Horde waves for your 2000 waves, now is the time.

Sounds fun, not doing it for boosting reasons but something different. Will just do some cooking then sit down and play.

EDIT: It's nuts, we have had a Gunker in Wave's 15, 16 and 17!

you only need 3 people minimum, i was doing with a buddy and i had a guest and that was it. more people the better so people can idle and switch every once in a while though.

I added a link to the Rustlung method in the OP. For anyone that doesn't notice or look there, look HERE.

Is there anything special happening that has caused these changes to Horde?

I'm not complaining, I knocked out the 1-50 achievement from the FoN Pack with no trouble whatsoever thanks to this, but it's kinda wacky only having Boomers on Wave 1.

It's not an event per se. They changed the enemy spawns a bit to help people get lambent beserkers more often for the achievement. As I understand it though, it is only through the end of the weekend. I don't think the changes are permanent but I'm not certain on that.

That's why one of the players left after Wave 10 with a lambent beserker, as usual early quitters get feedback to avoid from me.

I'm on right now and willing to spend most of the day doing this. I have a 2nd xbox and gold profile so we can let those idle while we kill. Msg or party invite GotDemThangz, I am invisible but I am on.

I think we got 5 on wave 1 once or twice when I played, but it was usually 3. We were on casual. Fortunately I knocked out 1500 waves over the past week and I'm now DONE with this game except for idling Wingman and doing 20 more events. Hallelujah!
