Shadow Ops- Doing the Math

There are multiple ways to rack up 8,000 points in 72 hours, this guide is for players who are unable to hit the 45s.  If you are someone who sticks with the 20s and can finish them quickly, then this is a guide for you.  If times allows, I would recommend hitting 27 20s the 1st 2 days and 26 the 3rd day; if you can hit more than 27 in a day, then go ahead and do it so you can finish as fast as possible.  Here is the time-table for points:

Day 1: 2,700 points total

Day 2: 5,400 points total

Day 3: 8,000 points total

It might be time-consuming if you use this strategy for the 1st time, but remember to train and track your progress, and it's never bad to go past a set goal.  I'm not obligating anyone to use this strategy, I just thought I would post this to help people out.

    I like this plan. Everyone in my sector just begs for me to open 45's for them. Lol

    Glad to hear it; you should share this with them.  Sorry you had to deal with people begging you.

    I run three attacks concurrently with banshees.  New base setups in these ops allows it.  Can clear 3 lvl 20 bases every 3-5 minutes.

    Very good, I don't have banshees, so I use 3 HS and 9 hover tanks.

    Hmm, no need to kill total base, just cc wil do so you can actually do that even faster.

    And if KIXEYE make bases 30 or 35 with 300 or 400 points for those who can´t do the 45, this yes was a great help to everyone, where is the joke to make 80 bases of 20 to finish the OPS.
    I don't like to beg, but i don't want to stay behind.
    Like we say in my country, either 8 or 80.

    If you have HS from lvl 7 up, and if they are shopped this helps, you can do 80 of these lvl 20 bases in a few hours max! No need to clear the whole base, just take out what is necessary to get to and take the CC. In most cases this all takes less than a minute depending on where your HS deploy. The trick is finding these 20's quickly enough. What I do is send out 2 or 3 plats to scout in different directions to find these bases. Often you will find a few clusters of them which is nice! But if time is tight, there's nothing wrong with spreading it out over a few days, I just prefer to get it done in one go, and can usually get this done in a little over an hour depending on how easily I find these bases. For me 45's are still too hard core! The 20's are easy, but the quantity makes up for this.

    good strategy , but I rather let kixeye add lvl 30 , 35 bases worth 400-600 points , lvl 45's are difficult to destroy .

    I use emegas, with one mega per toon with Rubi on.  You can do 80 20's in about an hour, Running 6-8 toons in the field at the same time.  End up with about 10 hours of repair time.

    5 HS (at least lvl 7), 80 20's done in roughly 2hrs, if done right, no repairs needed, otherwise with lag issues allowing last stand to gain an advantage, maybe an hour or so max. Depends very much on your approach, but each 20 should not take more than a minute...
