Trouble with Gold Launchers?

Not a complaint - more seeking advice.

1) SMAW (inaccurate as hell)

     * need 5 double kills - have 1 so far. What is the best mode/map to accomplish this on?

2) FHJ

     * need 10 player controlled scorestreaks. Best mode/map?

     * I see maybe 1 match for every 100 where someone actually uses a player controlled scorestreak, so it's taking FOREVER

3) RPG

     * haven't attempted challenges on this launcher yet - waiting until after I get the 1st 2 gold.

Are people getting these gold by boosting??

Sidenote about launcher damage:

* I usually only play Hardcore and for some reason the launchers don't do much damage at all. Whether it's next to an enemy or shot into a room - all I get is a hitmarker.

* Why, if a launcher can shoot down a UAV or CUAV thousands of miles up in the air, can it not destroy a sentry gun with one shot from 20 yards away?

I JUST posted the exact same thing about damage in HC, I just rpg`d 2 guys together from behind, and none of them died and im like WTF!

Regarding your troubles > a few tips from someone who has gold fhj, gold smaw, and just got my 100 kills with rpg, now just need 10 impact kills, 1 kill from a car (dafuq), 5 double kills and 1 triple, i`ll be working on these for the forseeable.

It can get very infuriating, so just keep the FHJ  your secondary on all classes, and use when needed, its very opportunistic as to when they appear (the streaks) - so just let it happen. Id play domination to get these as thats where the parties are, who killwhore, and the scrubs who use care packages, plus flag cap xp helps bad players get streaks. MAKE SURE YOU RUN COLD BLOODED  coz there`s nothing worse than someone getting a vtol and you get killed by it before you can shoot it down. Remember, dragonfires and rcxd`s count. as do lodestars, and vtols. Also the AGR/Sentry gun,  IF its being controlled by a player.

The SMAW, i used as a primary, with no other gun - use scavenger, as it replenishes the 2 nades , and if you get on a streak your laughing, use lightweight too. . Play FFA to get the 100 kills, then drop into domination to get your double kills, hang around the B flag, or vacant flags, use tac insert if needs be, smoke can be your friend here too - smoke a B flag at the start of the game, sit back and unleash a smaw nade into the dust. Got numerous triples that way Stay to the small to medium maps. Standoff is perfect when you start from the A flag - cap A at the start, smoke nade the B flag and go into the building, aim the launcher at the car (thats now smoke covered) and cross your fingers The clip thats in nintendon`ts new montage, I do that, and the explosion actually made me jump when  the car went off.

The rpg im planning on doing as I did with the smaw, but the damage doesnt seem as great. The triple may be a problem, and its trickier to use than the smaw, so it might take a while. Ive got my 100 kills, now im going to keep it as a secondary on all my classes, coupled with fast hands, and smoke, and play the arse out of domination until I get gold.

I have a class I titled GOLD, and I use this for whatever weapon im trying to get gold, so id have a fhj class with blind eye/cold blooded/fast hands and C4 - to C4 myself when my 2 shots have been used. Usually takes 3 to take down a lodestar, and if your the only anti uav guy on your team, get your 1st 2 on target, and then wait to die?? Nah, C4 your self, respawn , and take that bad boy down!

Same with the other 2, unless you got scavenger (im not even sure RPG gets resupplied, havent unlocked yet) - you dont want to be wasting time killing guys with your gun, when you need launcher kills. You can get the 100 kills in 4/5 ffa games if you get the right lobbies

Hijacked is a good game for looking for aircraft. You can just be a human SAM turret walking around and grab some popcorn as everything pops up. (Thats in dreamworld)

I used to play domination a lot to get those double kills with SMAW and RPG (even got a triple kill by accident).

Hijacked is a good place for double kills since people like to camp on the B flag and sometimes VTOLS,Lodestar and other high score killstreaks appear and AGRs too! You just need a good enemy team that gets them constantly.

I only need one f..... Dragonfire to get FHJ in gold. It really takes like forever to gold the launchers because you are dependent on other players scorestreaks.

About RPG one guy wrote he got the last golden kill by taking down an airplane, but if you try don't forget to aim in front of it.

If you destroy VTOLs,Lodestar and other aircraft controlled killstreaks it still counts (I got it gold by destroying Lodestars in domination) and as for the RPG i just shot down helicopters and it also counted!

I cannot  count all times I've been shot by an enemy whole aiming on a Dragonfire, shot by the Dragonfire or even locked two shots and the damn thin somehow survived. And often when a Dragonfire show up I have the wrong class. I have several time run out to be killed fast to change class but that doesn't often work. Lol

But IMO they show up more often in Domination than TDM. More killstreaks overall there.

I just need 1 airplane, 4 doubles and a triple for the RPG gold , thus unlocking diamond. The triple is gona take loadsa luck, the airplane might be tricky, the doubles will come soon enough.

I heard some chatter about killing 2 players with a gun and then the 3rd with the RPG to get a triple (if you can do all that quick enough). Same with doubles - kill 1 with a gun, swap and kill the 2nd with the SMAW. Supposedly it doesn't have to all be with the launcher as long as you do the last kill with it.
