    Diamond Pistol Tips?

      I have gotten SMGs and Snipers diamond. Along with a gold KSG, Remington (R-8700 I think), and Ballistic Knife.


      Currently I am working the pistols in order.


      Five Seven - Blue Tiger

      Tac-45 - Devgru

      Executioner - None

      B23R - Choco

      Kap 40 - Devgru


      Any class tips?


      I run:


      Five Seven - Extended Clip

      Ghost and Flak Jacket

      Fast Hands

      Engineer or Extreme Conditioning and Tactical Mask

      C4 or Combat Axe depending on objective or not.

          Play HCKC, you should be able to easily get 7-10 headshots per game. My mate got 14 in one game with the Executioner once.

              I'll try, but I'm more of a guy who gets headshots from flinching which is near impossible in HC.


              Thank you though.

                  Let's see, I've got a gold Tac .45 and am grinding through the B23R (so annoying) and am on 76 headshots with the Five Seven, so just about to get Kryptic Typhon.


                  I would run extended mags on the B23R when you start using it, because it chews through ammunition like crazy, while the Five Seven has the largest magazine of any pistol, so doesn't really need it.


                  My pistol class set up is:


                  1. Ghost + Lightweight

                  2. Scavenger

                  3. Dexterity


                  Lethal: Grenade (greater blast radius than Semtex)

                  Tactical: Concussion


                  Perk 1 Greed


                  Secondary: Pistol + either Long Barrel and/or FMJ.

                I did all pistols except the executioner a long time ago. Every pistol so far had been very easy. The executioner was a battle I wasn't willing to do for about 2 months. I hated it because of so many reasons.


                short range

                low damage

                small clip

                long reload time


                However, over the last two nights I have 1 blood thirsty to go and I'm done. I changed everything about how I play and made this class setup


                ghost / lighweight


                dead silence / awareness


                long barrel attachment & 1 shock charge OR concussion


                I basically bated and used my shock charge to guard doorways / rooms or if I was watching the other side / door I used it as a warning device. The concussion I used to chase people down and catch them.


                The hardest part at first was figuring out how to run around on the map and get in close to people. I can't tell you how many times I saw an enemy and just had to run away. The other tough thing was finding places on maps that I could lock down with a semi-high traffic rate.


                Not the most fun weapon to diamond but the remarks you get from people with the executioner makes it worth it.

                  Dexterity. Maps like hijacked even with the quick draw time of the pistols it is so much easier with dexterity on. You get the jimp in 90+% of your gunfights then its just be accurate.
