    Yea I'm too much of a noob to get any onyx without private matches. Maybe some people don't have the time to spend playing right now. I haven't even been able to play the game for a week because of 3 exams.

    I will have to say I am impressed with the first unlock OP. it is quite a feat to get something like that so quick. I persoanlly hate VS matches and have to grit my teeth through them to get any of the more easy acheivments from it. Far to old to keep up with all the twitch kiddies running around..now horde and beast are a different story, but I digress. I personally will never see an Onxy weapon. and really dont like the look of them so no big loss in my book.

    however I will say dont be an ass about it. you really do come off as a child when you do.

    Umm...

    My personal view on farming bots to unlock things is simple, your too much of a noob to earn it legit. I think private matches should NOT count towards anything. Onyx will mean nothing when you can farm it in a day or whatever.
    Yeah you kind of did, you implied farming bots should be looked down upon. At the end of the day it's just a game it won't ever effect you're time spent with the game, how others get the unlocks is their own business.

    Meh, if I wanna farm for medals, i'm well within my rights to farm for them. You can't call someone a noob for wanting to get something over with as quickly as possible.
    Epic Forums, before I go, I just want to tell you... You were fantastic. Absolutely fantastic. And do you know what?

    So was I

    Lol, alright first off i said you implied it, meaning it's how people are taking what you said. You could simply apologize and word it differently and elaborate what you mean exactly cause you're OP comes off as you calling out those who play against bots as "newbs"... On a side note, name calling is both immature and unnecessary. Also i didn't put any words in you're "mouth" the quote is from the OP.

    I ment what i said no sorrys are needed for that. I belive i called them noobs learn the differnce. If you choose to take what i say out of the context of which its intended, thats your problem. From now on... ignored.

    hey if i find an easier way i will take it like farming bots. since i will never be able to spend a crazy amount of time on this considering i have a fulltime job and a girlfriend who i prefer to spend time with then play this. so i wont hate on anyone for doing anything. but the fact you got it legit is insanity to me but awesome insanity. i wish i had the time you got to go out like that. i know i can make time but i just cant stop doing certain things considering i like them more than the game. getting laid is like 10g in life lol.

    Default Farming

    I like gaining xp in private matches because unlike the rest of you, I suck at Versus mode online. Playing any of the modes in versus makes me physically cringe. I hate getting shotgunned and I hate the rolling, jumping around. I prefer to use cover and shoot, move, and communicate, not run around in the middle of the map blasting away at the nearest target. It's just not my thing.
    I can see your point though. Farming is definitely not an acceptable way to get the achievements but you have to remember they are producing this game for masses of devoted fans. Some of which cannot or do not play exclusively online. It was a good move for them to put the private match options in there. It's a good way to ensure that you don't get anyone you might not enjoy playing with and It also gives you and your pals options to do just pistols and shields, or shotguns and torque bows etc... All the favorite options and amenities of the 90's LAN party on Halo, Timesplitters, and Quake !! What's not to love ?

    I'm sorry, sixty to seventy kills per KOTH match?! That's impossible, you must be lying. Like, physically impossible, there would be such a fast overtime cap rate that you wouldn't be able to play a match long enough to get sixty kills.

    Not to mention you dont learn to play better fighting bots. With a gun like the Retro it takes skill to use a farmed Retro Master will clearly stand out. And by standing out I do mean you'll sawk.
    Quick Question for the OP, since I figure you must know the true answer:
    Does retro charging count toward unlocking onyx?

    Not impossible at all, once again just because you cant do it doesnt mean its not possible. As ive stated before dont belive me toss me an invite. Dont invite me expecting to be carried tho.

    Hey Dawn ZERO (i like how you have ZERO in your name because thats what you are, a big fat zero at life)
    anyway, at the end of the day you cant take critics at all about what is, you cant handle people calling you out without making an ass of yourself and you cant handle that people dont give a flying crap about if you get onyx legit or not, hell ill be honest i am farming and ive been at it for over a week in my spare time, since you know ive got a freakin life to keep up with like everyone else, and like most others who commented, we dont have the time to sit around at home to work on medals and such, we like to go outside and live life a bit every chance that we got, but you getting this in the first week just screams that you have nothing else to do with your time because you must be playing an insane amount of time , and that would be sad if you wee not such an ass with everyone who comments about farming and so on, you just seems to live for the hate and for these forums, and to be honest when i stopped writing here a couple of days ago i was sure that this topic would have died out but no you just keep coming back to try and justify that what you did was super awesome .

    bottom line, grow up take comments and if you cant then i feel sorry for you and stop calling out people for how they want to go at it for the medals and so on, hell you hated that i called you out for farming kills in koth and i am sure that everyone is with me that its exactly what you did since you got insane amount of kills in matches( thats if you were telling the truth, and i dont believe that you were) and dont pretend that you where helping out in those games to protect the hill because we all know that with those kill numbers, all you were doing was going for kills and nothing more , and also with those numbers you are basicly calling everyone that went up against you bad players, since no one seem to have been able to kill you right back and again that just bull since i am sure that you went up against at least one person that would have been fed up with you and would have had some revenge kills.. anyway keep telling yourself that you are all that and that you dint farm even so you frown on the idea , and stop judging people, and above all stop being a prick and stop calling us kids since you are one in terms of maturity...

    congratz! thanks for posting a pic, ive been looking for one. and the only onyx medal i have is for gettin 1100 kills in beast
    Instead of looking at it as skill, or looking at tactics, i just go completely off of faith, and it works fine for me.

    He doesn't have to. The very first you you said was you earned it "legit" because you didn't farm bots.

    Its nice that you unlocked something that took dedication and means something to you, but you don't have to be an elitist about it. If private matches were not legitimate ways to unlock it, then Epic would not have intentionally designed it to be possible that way. Also referring to people as being children because they disagree with you attacking people that don';t share the same views is not going to get you many positive responses.

    When i inevitable do farm my onyx retro I wont even bother putting the skin on because simply showing that or the sawed-off means you just abuse the tools epic gave to lesser skilled players to attempt to enjoy this game as much as the more hardcore crowd.

    Sure, one can spray with the Retro at close range and get easy kills (although even at close range controlled bursting is more effective), but no gun is more satisfying to get a kill with at medium to long range. That's why it's my favorite, and for close range I pull out my Gnasher anyway. People will think whatever gun kills them is a noob one at that moment, it seems.

    Yup, they're a part of the game now. Doesn't mean that they weren't implemented for people with less skill though. Which they clearly were.

    Congrats on getting your Retro to Onyx, but how are you going to saying playing Private is for 'noobs'? I personally don't use the Retro or the DBS in MP because the weapons don't take skill to use and so when my team that I usually play with isn't online and I'm wide awake than I will go into Private to work on the things that I don't use....like the Retro or DBS. Now I can agree that if someone is playing ONLY private because they can't do good in MP than I will say that they should just return the game because there is no point in getting a higher rank or unlocking a certain unlockable if you ONLY played Private. In the end, congrats in getting your Retro to Onyx even though it is a scrubby weapon.

    6,000 kills but you're level 55? Hmmmm, something is fishy sir. And also, retro doesn't take skill. But okay. I think you killed a lot of bots in a quick match lobby but thats just my thought. Lol.

    bottom line, grow up take comments and if you cant then i feel sorry for you and stop calling out people for how they want to go at it for the medals and so on, hell you hated that i called you out for farming kills in koth and i am sure that everyone is with me that its exactly what you did since you got insane amount of kills in matches( thats if you were telling the truth, and i dont believe that you were) and dont pretend that you where helping out in those games to protect the hill because we all know that with those kill numbers, all you were doing was going for kills and nothing more , and also with those numbers you are basicly calling everyone that went up against you bad players, since no one seem to have been able to kill you right back and again that just bull since i am sure that you went up against at least one person that would have been fed up with you and would have had some revenge kills.. anyway keep telling yourself that you are all that and that you dint farm even so you frown on the idea , and stop judging people, and above all stop being a prick and stop calling us kids since you are one in terms of maturity...
