/Super Easy Hardcore Kills with just 2 people/

Did this last night and it worked like a charm!! A friend of mine told me about this and thought I would post it for all.

Set up a player match with you and a friend.
The person going for the kills becomes an engineer.
Build a dispenser first then use the money out of it to build a sentry right beside it. Make sure you upgrade the sentry by hitting it with your wrench to its max.

The other player becomes a spy and needs to disguise himself so the sentry does not kill him.

Go up to the sentry and place a zapper on it - The Engineer hits it with his wrench and it will count as a kill. Rinse and Repeat. If you are close enough to the dispenser you will regenerate money also so you will never lose health on your gun or Engineer.

The kills will not count in your stats until the Engineer is killed by the spy. Me and a buddy of mine got about 1800 kills in about 1 hour and 45 mins and we had some "goof off" time in there.

Now that the game is backwards compatible you can get this achievement by yourself if you are fortunate to have a 360 and an XBOX One.

Once set up, rubber band RT on the engineer and use a sapper every few seconds on the other account.

Use your live account on the 360 and another one on the one as you can share gold on that !!!

Thanks to Calex dEUS for bringing this to our attention in the comments below.
