I can't believe people are saying the only way to get a gold shield is boosting. Explains a lot about the stuff I come across in-game if that's the backwards mentality of the people who play it.
It's a miserable experience, and your K/D WILL suffer but it's doable. Think I ended up with a 0.42 K/D after just under 300 kills to get it gold and to max level.
Ghost / flack jacket
Extreme conditioning / tac mask
My worst enemy was people using tac mask.
HC was good for one bash kills, but a nightmare as it only takes a stray bullet hitting your elbow to kill you. I did some in core TDM when the kiddies were off as they were pretty clueless so easy prey.
its pretty simple i got diamond sheild... just do as the above use tactition and stun/flash b4 u charge them challenges are remotely easy......25 kills with cb axe and bullet block damage now worries though u dont have to get a bloodthirsty
I'm one bloodthirsty kill with the crossbow from Diamond specials. I finally finished the Riot Shield, and as others have said, it's not that bad. I played HC TDM, and went with combat axes & shock charges. Sure, I wasn't improving my K/D, but I didn't lose much ground either. Just stay in close quarters parts of the map.
Any suggestions for getting that crossbow bloodthirsty would be appreciated!
Tac knife was a doddle, the bloodthirsty for the CB took me about 12 sticks and stones games after getting the 300 kills to unlock challanges, Yemen came up and I just stuck to the edges of the map being very careful with my shots.
