Talking a tip for Hotshot: Reservoir Chickens

well im not sure if this will work for everyone, but it has worked for me and a friend of mine.

firstly make sure you have full ammo for all weapons and that you have different weapn load outs for each load out slot.

when the level first starts shoot about 14 checken, then shoot 5 of the farmers guys running around stealing the chickens (each farmer kill will minus 3 points from your score)
once your score is back to zero you should be able to change weapons and load outs with out the level ending, that is of course until the weapon your using runs out of bullets. so just change weapons before you run out of bullets for the weapon your using and you should have plenty of time and bullets for an easy gold medal.

as stated above this method worked for a friend and i as described, so hopefully it works for others.

i guess it could have been, but how many people would read all the posts in the thread to actually have got to mine with this easier method than the one in that post?

actually yours isn't easier read this as this was in that thread

You could always use the glitch to get this more easily. I told toxincram about it and he got the silver medal first time after. The glitch was posted on here by somebody else, although I can't remember who.

Basically, start the Hotshot trial and when it is counting down 3,2,1 press back on your controller. Then left trigger and choose character to go into your loadouts. Select whichever loadout you want (shotguns are good but have an assault rifle or something as well). Exit the loadout and then when you spawn in the trial you will have your normal weapons rather than the pistol. It makes it a lot easier, although still tedious.

Couldn't get this to work. Everytime I press Y to switch load out, it just auto goes back to the default.

You have to press Start, change your main weapon, back out and then press Y.

It still works to my knowledge. Did it yesterday on Reservoir Chickens.

Got fed up of getting only a few point short of Gold, so to not waste time anymore glitched my way to Gold. Not proud of it, but clearly this challenge requires supreme precision, like the kind that a mouse + keyboard gives you.

Can confirm it still works today as i just did it. Doing it with the pistol is hard as hell, just because as mentioned above on console aiming is bad compared to mouse and keyboard.

I just threw my pyro grenade at the horde of chicken spawns and then waited. Was nice not stressing out as I do plenty of that in the nail bitter races.
