  • Cows are friends. Not food - Mar 2, 2018



    26-36 with 3 of each, 5 max:
    3|2 Subs and 4|1 Snipers.

    By onlinegamer321

    Snowflake Easy, 26-36, $3500 starting cash, 5 lives, 55MM reward.

    Aaron There is a mistake - the challenge is currently 1-50, not 26-36.

    There's a mistake all right. The only way to kill camos is using a 3/x sub which are very unreliable and this map only allows a mediocre placement.

        Yay! Although Aaron really doesn't like to ban agents.

        NAPS first attempt.

          What is the trick for 33 yellow camos? 3 of 3.x subs could not de camo them all.

            Clearly something to do with matching the yellows to the subs' pulses...

              I used 2 portable lakes + 2 3/2 subs. Bought a Sniper for 28-32 and then sold it for a 3rd sub. I put the lakes at 10:00 and 7:00, then put the 3rd sub in the pond at 2:00. Easy Peasy.

                No tricks, just even timing on the subs. If you are gonna bypass the challenge by using agents, the easiest solution would be the meerkat.

                  Any help on how to even time the 3.x subs? I am not buying meerkat or ponds. The subs should be triggered at 120 degree interval? How to ensure that?

                    I timed the subs just about perfectly and I still leak around 2-3 yellows or so. I think a 13 life limit would be more reasonable. It seems very difficult, if not impossible, to time the subs well enough to miss just one yellow, but allowing for missing 2-3 yellows should make this doable if one is careful with sub timing. The rest of the rounds after 33 should be trivial.
                    I normally don't post runthroughs of DCs unless I feel like they're particularly difficult. However, if you need a runthrough, shoot me a PM and I'll do my best to get one up.

                      Huh....that's strange. In testing I beat this at least ten times in a row. Are you in fast forward? Because I found I would leak more in fast forward. Also I was in low quality. Don't know if that makes a difference.

                        Well, low resolution, sub spl, and keep trying until you pass 33 gave me success eventually. I didn't get the challenge. Why 5 lives and not 1 life? It is luck based on 33 unless I am missing something.

                          Ok this seems a little silly, but when you're finished with round 32, you can submerge the subs and see their pulses (watch the circular pulse, not the spinning line).
                          Submerge a sub, and count 1-2-3-1-2-3-1-2-3 until you have the rhythm where the pulse hits every time you say 1.
                          Then submerge the second one on your 2's, and the third one on your 3's.

                          It's also important to use low quality so that you can get two subs as far to the left as possible (almost equal, not quite).
                          And stay on low speed. I still leaked one.

                          If your pulses don't match the rhythm then you can retry, but hitting submerge again will leave you in the cadence wherever you emerged, so you're at trial-and-error at that point. But you can still be diligent and play around with it till you're satisfied with an equally spaced rhythm.

                          Good luck!
