to get 15 without zomming inPvP, you will need to find opponent, who has troopers, which are resurecting. Work well for me

Snipey, as usual,  p)  spot on with everything you've said.

Actually forgot all about Drone Missions, as I tried them when they came out and promptly forgot about them on purpose.  I don't even think I've got an upgraded drone!  In the early missions, if memory serves (which it more often than not doesn't) there are less than 15 enemy drones to shoot down so I would have had to work on that one to get to a stage where there were.

bh - I've tried that approach too, doesn't seem to make any difference, for me anyway, but nice idea  :D  scoring with that one seems too random to work out.
Turns out I wasn't just old and grumpy - I was right to be p!ssed right off!

I completed 8 out of 10 on tier 12, and spent enough time trying the drones solution, then stopped. It's the usual BS from GL, and I'm pretty much done.

I've had the last week off now I need to get back to the grind. Just happy, that given where I work now (different country), my credit card doesn't work so I can't buy rubies, to make the game easier.

Have a good one everyone. Stay safe.

Better check that memory. There's no enemy drones in Drone Ops.

All the enemies I've ever encountered (with the exception of one) in Drone Ops are on foot (they are confined to: Assault, Sniper, RPG and Molotov). They tend to come out 2 or 3 at a time and there are typically 8 to a batch. Then you fly around slowly bored sh...less onto the next scene and the next batch of 8....

On the boring flight between scenes there is a flying enemy - it's a mother ship three pronged thingy (that's what I call it anyway - someone please tell me the correct name for it and I'll update my nomenclature). Anyhoo... the flying trident mothership whatchamacallit does not count as an enemy towards the BP tasks btw. There's a screen pic of this flying thingy in Drone Ops here (centre of screen):
viewtopic.php?f=2033&t=714209

Incidently, Drone Ops is also a good source of Molotov enemies for that task also (just in case you don't want to slug it out finding them in PvP or continually doing a region mission to chalk up the 20).

In my limited experience, this varies from SM to SM in terms of the resurected SM being counted as a second enemy. It's almost like when they cut'n'paste the code (for a SM with resurection feature) it depends which SM they copied it from - some get counted as two enemies and others only count as one.


[Edit: Was going to post a screen pic to support this post but all I can offer is the one attached at the moment]

Or maybe you played Drone Ops yesterday  :o .


(You left a gap wide enough to land an A380 on in a cross wind - all I did was land the plane in the gap you created  ;) ).

BP Season 36 - just as fun as 35

Yeah you've made it easy to keep my flying hours up during covid. I will miss the landing practice when forums close - although you don't set much of a challenge  ::) .

Back on topic(ish)...

Started the game this morning
Tough Bunny gear equipped already
Went straight to the exotic weapon event
Opened one Supreme Pack
Went to Ch 1 Ms 4
Ch 1 Ms 4 has 2 helicopters only
Shot down one helicopter with three shots
HIt the barrage button
Second chopper blows up
2 helicopters shot down in total
Mission ended with a victory
Now the fun part...

Little annoying slide out from BP Tier 2 "Eliminate 3 enemies without reloading your weapon" completed!

W-t-absolute-f??? Someone is taking the ur1ne and pulling my leg at the same time here.

Here's an update on internal game mathematics... 2 choppers = 3 enemies (just incase anyone was wondering).*


Fineprint
* Only applies to Chapter 1 Mission 4 of an exotic weapon event where the player uses barrage function on the second target of a total of two identical helicopter targets and only of the helicopter is piloted by an alien with a green head wearing an eighties style mod suit and only 24 hours after Tier 2 of BP season 36 opens and a sneaky update was pushed through in the start up of the game within 12 hours of that and the player has a headache from being confused by game inconsistencies and etc etc.

Reference to unannounced update mentioned above:
