This arena is fairly difficult, and it is a bit frustrating to get such a high score on. You need to score 14,000 points to get a Gold trophy for the arena, and you'll be fighting mostly the standard scapper varieties along with random Echelon Mercs starting in the third round. Beware because enemies become tougher and more numerous each round. This arena does not have a special feature other than explosive barrels.

In arena mode you score points by, obviously, killing enemies. Each type of enemy is worth a varying amount of points, with tougher enemies generally worth more points. The key to scoring well is to get your score multiplier up to x10 and keep it there as long as you can. With each successive kill you make, your score multiplier will go up by one, from x1 up to a maximum of x10. Pretty standard arcade type scoring. Also keep in mind that you will receive a 2,000 point bonus if you complete the arena without dying. You can use you self-revive without penalty, but if you have to use the A button to get back up, you will lose the bonus.

Use whatever weapons you want, but I suggest equipping an Invader class infector as your primary weapon, and a BMG that links multiple targets for your secondary, like the BM-4 Stingray. Don't worry too much about grenades for this one and equip Decoy for your Ego power to help take the pressure off, or possibly Overcharge to take out Elite Omnivolts. Don't worry about the Forges; you don't have time to kill them.

Try to stay up top for the first couple of rounds and use your BMG to take out the small scrappers as quickly as possible to keep your multiplier up. For the third round, drop down to the bottom and get out your Infector. Focus on the Omnivolts and Echelon Mercs, and the bugs should kill enough small scrappers to help keep your multiplier up. Whip out the BMG whenever you get big crowds of the small explosive scrappers, as these can quickly kill you. Keep your multiplier up and take out large scrappers and you should hit gold on this one. Remember that if you stay alive, you only need 12,000 instead of 14,000.
