100 Points the hard way

 

After a 30 hour push this weekend to finish off the last three medals, i've reched the end of the Seriously 3.0 road.  Probably the most time consuming achievement to date on xbox360.

Many times I asked myself why I was doing this and then it finally got to a point where it was like well... you've already come this far, keep on go'in.

Now i can get back to playing again.

 

I know FuzzyRabbidDog also has it unlocked, anyone else from 2o2p endoure the grind?

About how often did you play a night and for how long to grind a lot of that stuff? And was most of it bot stuff?

I had 54 medals total three weeks ago and did nothing but grind medals for the past three weeks to get it done.  I'd usually run two weapon killing sessions @ 600 kills each and then a session for assists, reloads and first bloods.  So over the past three weeks i'd be running 3-4 hours a night and at least 20 hours each weekend on two weekends, i had one weekend off.

I used a variety of strategies to efficiently get medal cred, the bulk of it though was not playing 'for real'.  Playing the game for real is about the most inefficient way to unlock medals there is.  If you want to unlock Ser3.0, you need to stop playing online :)

The worst one was the First Blood one, that ended up being the last one I needed.  And since you can only get 1 credit per round, that means you're grinding 3000 rounds.  I saved it for last so I actually only needed to grind out 500 or so just doing that medal and it went fast, was running 18 second rounds.

Yes I have Ser 1, 2 and 3 achievements.  I remember how long it seemed to take to get ser 1.0 back then, that was a walk in the park.
