As if I wasn't thinking the Silverback looks a right nightmare to level up enough.... A million dollars? Seriously?

Looks like I am gonna have to play A LOT of Horde from now on.....a million...grumble, grumble....etc

AWESOME guide though Ninja - nice work mate.

It's not as bad as it sounds once you get the right strategy and mutator balance. Wink

I use big head mode (doesn't affect levelling), Super Reload (-25%) and Instagib (-25%)

Having seen that, I am gonna drop the easy mutators until I have sorted out my Silverback - want them rockets for the achievement!

If any kind souls have already upgraded their SB and would like to donate it as a gift or some such so I can blast 500 unsuspecting Locust asses out of the Horde park, I would be most appreciative and willing to help out with any other things you need!

Normal difficulty, Instagib, no ammo pick up & enemy re-gen. This will ensure all your money goes ino the fortification. Pick level 10 on Blooddrive & go solo. Kill everything but 1 then die, rinse & repeat. Then once you have the rockets park the silverback in the top room, the enemys have to come through the one doorway, so you just blast away. After about 20 waves you'll have killed enough.

Got the achievement for the rocket kills last night. Very Happy

There is a way to boost money in Horde:

Start on a boss wave (10, 20 etc), use instagib and other good mutators, kill everything until about 3-4 left then die and restart wave, your cash will rack up very quickly, don't spend your cash whilst doing this, keep doing it until you got shit loads of money, then go spend it Very Happy

As much as I like to boost (made you look Publik!), I am actually going to do this boost purely for the Silverback - it really is a pain and why did they make it so much money?!

Thanks for the tip Ninja.
