NOTE 1: This is a 5.56mm assault rifle. It is compact and accurate and fires 850 rounds per minute. This weapon is ideal for Close Quarter Combat and is an excellent choice for a close range assault weapon. NOTE 2: This is a 6.8mm assault rifle. It is a high powered weapon and fires 750 rounds per minute. This weapon has an effective combat range of 600m, is ideal for defeating armored targets, and is best suited fo
In Campaign or Terrorist Hunt mode, choose a sniper rifle as a weapon. Shoot the enemies from behind cover by first targeting them and focusing by pressing R3 or Right Analog-stick and blind firing. If you shoot while the crosshair is bigger and red, you should hit with every shot and thus get CQB points for blindfire.
In Chapter 1, The Pyrenees, there is a respawning enemy whom you can repeatedly kill to gain CQB, Marskmanship, and Assault points. Just before Gabriel Nowak defuses the bomb, set a C4 charge on the pillar where the gun turret on the left will deploy. Order Nowak to "Team Defuse Bomb", and detonate the C4 to kill the enemies past the shutter. There is one enemy who will continuously respawn on the balcony above where Bishop and the team entered the bomb room. To gain CQB points, move close to him and kill him. To gain Marksmanship points, shoot him in the head. To gain Assault points, allow him to take the gun turret before killing him.
Note: This requires that the free FanPack maps map be downloaded. There is a way to earn some fast A.C.E.S. points on the CQB Dark map. It is best to do this on solo so that no enemies are triggered before you are ready for them. Start a Terrorist Hunt offline and make sure Lone Wolf is on. By doing this, your AI partners will not spoil anything for you. When the game loads, immediately change over to your pistol. The Desert Eagle is recommended because it is a one shot killer at close range. Start walking to the corner of the wall on your left. As you near it, sprint around the corner and go up the ladder. The man at the end of the other room may shoot at you or call for back up, which is perfect. Do not stop to engage him or his friends. Climb the ladder quickly and take cover beside the concrete wall crouched down so that no one below can shoot you. Aim at the ladder and wait. They will come up one by one. When the count reaches 37 terrorists to go it is time to trigger more. Go down the ladder and go to the room where you started. Go out into the courtyard ahead. Move behind the pallets of sandbags. Move just so you can get a shot on the person in the building across from you on the right side of the doorway. Shoot him and run back for the ladder. Go back up and repeat the process. The count should now be 29 terrorists. Run across the map to the other ladder, entering at the closest door to you (behind the broken down van). Shoot at either of the men you encounter (in the window of the middle building or the corner of the far right building) then run for the ladder and go up. Repeat the process. Allow one minute to pass without terrorists to make sure it is safe to continue. Move to the wall behind you and do not leave the top of the ladder. Fire a few rounds then go back to the ladder. Repeat the killing. Keep moving out into the outer perimeter of the building with the ladder and you should narrow it down to about three to five terrorists that will not fall for your trap. Hunt them down and kill them. You can clear the map on your own. You can do this under the Realistic setting at high enemy density. Every kill you make should be while they are on the ladder and you are behind them. You will get Kill At Close Range or more often than not, Kill Opponent From Behind A.C.E.S. points. Kill 40 terrorists like this and for 120 A.C.E.S. points per round.
To earn a great amount of A.C.E.S. for Marksman and CQB and a little bit of Assault, equip a sniper rifle with 6X12 scope Note: Any of them except for the first sniper rifle will work, preferably the automatic one. Go to Story mode and to the chapter "Monorail". You should begin with two doors in front of you. Do not open them yet. There are two supply boxes. Open one, and it will give you more ammunition for your sniper rifle. After that, open the doors and order your companions to guard the left entrance of the monorail. Note: If this is not done, you will be killed from behind. Take cover, but not behind the plants. Also, do not cross the monorail hall or you will either be killed or will not get what you are looking for. The methods to getting A.C.E.S. after that are as follows.
CQB: Once behind cover, pull out your sniper rifle. Do not get out of cover. You need to scope twice with your sniper. You will see the screen go into focus. Then, blind fire at the turrets and men, but beware, some rush. Your companions should take good care of them, though if you placed them at the correct location.
Marksman: This is a little harder as it involves you not blind firing, but coming out of cover to shoot. Scope into any of the men you see and always do a head shot. Some may be too close for the "Long Range" A.C.E.S., and if you simply shoot them on the chest it will not get you the points. Some may rush, but once again those two soldiers will help you.
Assault: Advance through the monorail to your right. Take cover behind a blue box. A shielded opponent will emerge. Snipe him on his leg or arm and he should fall. Advance forward. Once you have reached the area where enemies charged down the stairs, there should be another shielded opponent on the opposite side. You can either let your companions take care of him, or you deal with him personally. Doing this tactic should get you a massive amount of A.C.E.S. After every time you finally kill the shielded opponent on the opposite side of the bridge, just reload checkpoint and do it all over again.
On CQB, take a frag grenade and C4 as your gadgets. With your other weapons you should have an assault rifle. When you set it up, make sure your teammates are in the game, at high enemy level, and it is on normal. When you start, tell your teammates to go to the box in front of you. Then, go to the corner to your right and take cover on that wall. Throw a grenade down at the other end of the building. You should get one or two kills. Wait for another terrorist to appear, then throw the other grenade. You should get three or four kills. Walk out the door to your left then take out your C4. Throw it inside the door to the brick building. Shoot the upper left green box in the brick building. Wait until some terrorists get close to the door. Detonate the C4 and keep doing this until the terrorists stop appearing. Go to the end of the brick and throw a grenade through the doorway. You should get a few more kills.
Choose single-player Terrorist Hunt. Make sure you have C4 on you. Choose the Presidio map. Set it to the Realistic difficulty and high density. Make it that so you are a lone wolf. Once done, launch the game. When you start, go forward in the direction you are facing. Make sure to sprint to get there quickly. After sprinting you should see a set of doors. Take cover next to the closest one. After you are in cover, open the door. At the far end of the room there will be a man that will walk by. Kill him by precision aiming (firing from cover). On the left should be another set of doors. Throw a C4 in front of it, but not on it. Wait for one of the doors to open and detonate it. Then throw in another C4 and detonate it. The most you should get is six kills, but it may be lower though. Repeat this to get a lot of Assault points.
You will be given 2,500 experience points, the ballistic face mask, and flight helmet at the start of a new game if you have a saved game file from Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Vegas with an "Elite rank" on your hard drive.
