The Mall - 20005p
Last edited by Hamsta; 03-14-2011 at 04:54 PM.
I decided last night to try and film doing the Mall. It's about as amateur as it gets and also I used some crappy software that added a water mark on it at intervals. I got 23345, not as great as my 25055 run but still you can see what I did. Will put it up soon unless it starts raining money soon and possibly a nice HD capture card also.
The Club - 19,565: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=971o3dyNyEU
I really messed up the boss part. missed 2 charged shots. Missed a chance for +750 intoxicated. Missed chance for xray on the final enemies!
oh well. next time.
p.s. updated original post with mine and hamsta's vids.
I finally got my BS yesterday, its time to start maxing echoes If you're interested I'll upload my vids on this channel http://www.youtube.com/user/sXeAdi?feature=mhum
right now there's only collapsed building vid but I'm working on new scores
BTW really nice scores I can see here, grats guys we should keep the competition going!!
There we go
The Mall - 24380
Plan to put more up as I go along!
Just for extra need to know bits - Totally missed Homing Missile. That and Smart mine I should of had before the Burnouts break through the glass. The Hotdog cart is also key, the more burnouts the merrier for Meat Fountain, it's mainly luck on that particular part. The shotgun should also provide piledriver and splatter punk for the last two burnouts before the last area.

nice one, the subtle arts. updated original post with that vid. i am going to work my way through each echo. I will probably get a vid of rooftops tomorrow. good stuff.
Got 2 top 100 scores and am ranked 146 (360) Will keep trying to refine it and am aiming for top 100 scores for all maps
Nice thread Dr. Some really helpful videos on show. It would be cool to see links to them all in the OP. Keep up the good work !!!
FEED YOUR TICKERS
i wish more of the people in all the top tens had videos. im going nuts trying to figure out how theyve scored so high. ive made it in the top ten on a few echo maps but some i just cant figure out how to up my score 4k+ on some of these runs! im currently 14 overall score on global right now :S
I'm trying to put up as many vids as poss over the course of the next few weeks. I shall put up a Monorail strategy next as I'm currently 3rd on that leaderboard.
yeah monorail is one i havent attempted yet. ive only 3 star'd it. im working on the desert and im having problems grouping all the guys together after the big door opens to get the 7x fertilizer. only 3 or 4 ever get killed with that skillshot
yeah i hate getting knocked down too! and half the time its always those people who glitch the 27 billion trillion score =/ my GT is SixString Fury btw. i have a youtube channel ive put a couple echo runs on. although on a couple of the maps my scores have gotten higher. my youtube name is the same as on here
Rooftops - 17,580: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fCpEshId4cU
This is not my best score. I missed a whole bunch of stuff on this run. You can get 10K+ before Ishi opens the door.
I missed: X-Ray, Gunslinger, Smart Mine, Hommie Missle, French Revolutions, and a whole bunch of other stuff.
I have played this map for the past 2 days. one of my high scores did not get recorded. i believe it was over 17k, i think it may even have been in the 19k range, not sure. i will come back to this map. on to the marina next.
p.s. updated original post with the latest vids under each map.
@rattle: thanks, u should get live so you can play bulletstorm and gow 3 beta.
I have a question! The Club + Lobby! How? haha
Yeah sure, I'm working on a few. Trying to get Monorail nailed as it was highly requested but I'll get round to it soon enough!
*sidenote* Kudos to whoever looks after the leaderboards on this game. It's really good to see bogus scores removed almost instantly. It makes a refreshing change.

First map i'm working on is spaceport, i really liked the way its build
I have to get back my cap card because even if I get the highest score i won't record it until monday :<
The most annoying echo is desert in my opinion. Its soooo random.
No probs, glad to be of service. keep up the good work with the vids and everything. i'll keep checking back so if you want any more tips just ask.
The spot I am using is way outside far right corner where the 3 guys drop from. Go uphill, on the edge of the fence, you can line it up so that the 3 near guys get lined up with the 1 far guy, and 3 of the 4 guys always run right at you in a staight line. 4th guy occasinally will also run at you, but most of the time he goes straight toward ishi. it makes getting x4 real tough.
i think it may be possible to x4 them before that 4th guy gets a chance to run toward ishi. i am trying to find that just right spot along the corner and time it just right so they get x4'd as soon as the 4th guy hits the ground. the problem i have with this strat is i am having to waste (+200) a bottle because getting intoxicated slows you down too much to get to this far corner.
i still couldn't find your spot tho. ok so here is a picture
what is the coordinate / square for the spot?
at that other spot outside, i had managed to getr x4 xray for all 3 groups of enemies one time. have been trying to re-get that, but one guy always runs straight toward ishi, and that is always messing it up.
Hey man, sorry, but that picture is just freaking my mind out. all i can say is this, what i do is intoxicated flyswat the first 4 dudes then the second 4 while still drunk (this bit is not crucial but helpful) the first 2 bomb dudes will come next i shoot the explosive barrel on the left and run outside. This forces the 2 bomb dudes to spawn on the right rather than either side (being outside not shooting the barrel). I thump them, fireworks 1 and snapshot, headshot, first in last out the other, while i've done this another barrel on the right should be floating as it has been thumped, i shoot it and make a b-line for the second bottle of booze.
Now the spot i mentioned is like a 180 degree turn and walk forward for a second after drinking the booze. Ishi should be a box away to your right. The reason i shot both the barrels earlier is to stop them interfering with the waves of bomb dudes because they will somehow kill a dude or one will get caught on one etc.
So now just stood between the back wall and the box just slightly to the right of it i'd say, i line up my drunken xray on the 3 dudes coming from the right and almost at the last possible moment the forth runs in for ishi and lines up.
Its definately a very hard shot especially while drunk, so i've only ever done all three waves a couple of times and then had some bad luck virtually every other but even if you just miss 1 dude and get a 4, 3, 4x xray you'll still be on 11500 to 12000.
please tell me this helps
Ok, below is a guide to my club run i've tried to be concise but informative and don't know if i've succeeded. let me know if this makes any sense and i shall try again.
thump the first dude,
xray two on the ground, boned hopefully.
snapshot, headshot, first in last out the airborne dude.
the flare dude try to get, enlightenment, misfire, gotcha, vertigo
4x xray the dudes near the pond and use a flare to get exterminator, if i miss one i go for fly guy and usually end up with fish food.
I mercy overkill the first dude and occasionally get an xray,
I don't do a specific setup in here as it is too random but i try to get,
bullet kick etc
pricked ( not just on there own try to get gotcha or misfire or something as a boost)
fast food (after i usually try to remove the hot dog kart by shooting it, i leash any affected dudes away from the edges so they don't all die for 10)
with a couple of dudes left i set them on fire thump them and firework 1 and snapshot the other, for first in last out, gunslinger, surgeon or rear entry or something.
after getting the left trigger 500 u should have 9000 ish on a good run
Now in the club I charge my pcm climb over the table and then drink the first bottle of booze
I try to intoxicated xray the 2 charging dudes through the boss (sounds hard but isn't too bad, this is basically to save time and stay drunk but not the end of the world if missed)
I pull his helmet off thump him and kick his head off ( during i change to and charge my screamer)
i set the dudes running in alight whilst stood on the bosses minigun, pick it up and unleash for intoxicated, afterburner, firefighter, full throttle plus any headshots
I run back for more booze and set on fire and thump the next wave any stragglers try and snapshot if there is a couple you can get gunslinger again but all done fast enough and you'll get firefighter again, plus afterburners flyswater n whatever.
finally before i go outside i drink more booze and then go and stand in the middle in the open outdoors. i wait for the large roar as all the extra dudes run in, I set them on fire, thump them and shoot a barrel for 6x fertilizer plus all the trimmings hopefully including blindfire.
then xray the last 3 dudes and you should have a heavy score

Awesome stuff gang, put all these videos up featured on http://bulletscores.com and can't wait to see some of your vids insane.
thanks scott. i finally found that spot. one of the boxes has a skull on it. behind that box, on the floor, is a piece of rope making a circle on the floor. stand right in that circle of rope and set your sights on the three guys coming from the right.
i think the devs put that circle on the floor intentionally to tell us where to stand to get them lined up! too much of a coincidence i think. ha ha
so basically, i am able to get all 4 enemies with 1 shot, but usually one of them gets bombshelled and not xrays because I guess the pmc shot hit their flail gun and not their body.
sometimes what I do is have my aim set on them but right before the first guy gets there, crouch and shoot at their legs.
also that first in last out using fireworks is pretty cool. i didn't know you could do that. i thumped a guy, fireworked him and then kill the other thumped guy and even that gives first in last out. lol i dont know how first in last out completely works i guess.
another thing i do if there ends up being one final enemy before ishi opens the door is to let him flail me, wait about 1.5-2 seconds, kick him and walk into him. that gives you smart mine so you don't have to waste this solo enemy on a lesser skillshot.
anyways that takes care of the first half of this echo i think. what do you do on the second half?
i destroy both bottles.
first guy mercy. second guy voodoo doll. third guy sucker. then i try to get french revolutions on the green guys and one or two of the remaining guys. then i try to french revolution the upstairs guys.
sadist + vertigo the guy by cliff, trap shoot / slam dunk outside 2 guys. if anyone left, random.
donwstairs, you can get meat slicer somehow randomly. shocker, flyswat. exterminator.
Cool glad we got there, once you put it in a vid there will be no more confusion.
during the later stage i try to get intoxicated smartmine on ishi, then homing missile, gang bang. I xray the first 2 running dudes tryin for blindfire and french revolution the balcony guys.
Then sucker, voodo doll, sadist on both, mercy-overkill on the lone guy.
The 2 dudes below i leash one(nothing more no kick) wrap him with a flail and let him fall for vertigo, same for the other but i go for enlightenment with misfire.
Finally xray the running dudes coming up the stairs and flail and leash the flare dude into shocker for gotcha. shoot a flail for exterminator.
I go for this but haven't nailed it perfectly with the awesome beginning.
could anyone put a marina strat up ?
