Really ? A merciless medal isn't counted as 2 bloodthirsty ?!

I was playing with my XPR-50 on cargo and I got a merciless medal + the game winning kill cam which makes it 11 kill streak but when I checked my challenge it only counted 1 bloodthirsty medal ! So I checked theater mode maybe I got a kill with another weapon maybe ? But when I checked guess what ? .. Nope all 11 kills came from the XPR ! So what everytime I get a bloodthirsty medal I need to die if I want another one ?

I'm guessing it's bugged for some people, because it's always counted for me.

I had the same thing happen to me.  I was monitoring the bloodthirsty medals for the camo challenges and noticed that I only got one for a 10 kill streak.

I've gotten relentless medals that only count as one bloodthirsty. It's stupid. Bloodthirsty is fairly easy enough to get, but still, it's annoying to do so well and not have the challenges count.

It never counted as two for me. That's why when I was working on my Bloodythirsty medals I would always intentionally die after the fifth kill.

It should give you credit for one of the two and that's all. The excuse that "I got 10 kills w/out dying so that should reward me with three medals" assumes you are never going to hit either a 5 kill or 10 kill streak ever again.

Frankly, I don't even know why they reward a 5 kill streak in this fashion.

Actually had this problem myself earlier today trying to get my DSR golden, never counted my merciless as 2 bloodthirsty.

Yes... getting a merciless is NOT 2 blood thirstys. It has to do with the xp awarded to you. so you get +500 for bloodthirsty, then when you get the merciless you get +1000, and so on.  So when you are awarded the merciless you do not get +1000 and +500, you only get the +1000 which means only one bloodthirsty
