Medals Targets Time Limit
Bronze: 22 32 29 seconds
Silver: 32
Gold: 46
Static targets. Each exits after one hit. Hit as many at once as possible.

The Sawn-Off Shotgun has the widest spread and can make it much easier but the Assault Shotgun is also good.

The Assault Shotgun is excellent if you want a decent spread and to complete the challenge quickly. The Sawn-Off Shotgun has a massive spread though so it can be made to hit multiple targets if you get the angle right. The Pump Shotgun is not as efficient as the others.

For this challenge, you need to be in a position where you can see the most targets at once. To get maximum points, hit the edge of a target in the middle of the pack and the spread will take out others in the vicinity. You need to hit 4 or more targets to achieve the maximum 7 points. Keep moving into a better position for the duration to get Gold.


Medals Targets Time Limit
Bronze: 290 12 43 seconds
Silver: 590
Gold: 700
Moving and static targets. Shoot closer targets to maximise your score.

Use the Assault Shotgun for this if you can because it fires very fast.

As the Assault Shotgun is a rapid-fire shotgun, it is perfect for this challenge. You will need to be fast to get maximum points from the targets. You must wait till the targets get really close before shooting them and sometimes you are faced with two or three moving simultaneously so you must be fast to gain maximum reward.

The challenge starts off with a couple of slow moving targets that appear one at a time from the back. You do not have to worry about hitting the targets dead centre, just hit them! Then two will appear at once and move quite quickly. They will stop and move to the side a little.

Then a row of five targets will drop down so you must be fast to hit them all when they get close. Just do your best here or use Michael’s special to slow time so you can make the shots. Finally, another three targets will then drop down together, pausing for a moment before moving back.


Medals Targets Time Limit
Bronze: 14 20 29 seconds
Silver: 18
Gold: 23
Moving targets. Each exits after one hit. Use spread to maximise score.

Once again the Sawn-Off Shotgun is excellent for this challenge but the Assault Shotgun is almost just as good.

Once again, the Sawn-Off Shotgun is best for this challenge because of its large spread. The targets will move together towards a convergence point. This is your moment to shoot them and hopefully hit multiple targets. Do not hit them after they have stacked together because that is too late. Try to hit them as they start to overlap.

As before, shooting four or more will net you the maximum 7 points.
