    Easy Panther Style


    Take a look at the required level you need to hit for normal: IE 3000 points for a level.

    Now for the trick. Start up that level playing it on Prefectionist. All the silent kills are worth more. Once you hit the required amount of points for Normal (check by hitting start and seeing your points so far for the level), get to a check point and change the difficulty down to Normal.

    You will be asked if you are sure you want to change the difficulty, choose yes and you will restart the level at the check point you reached. Your points will carry over from Perfectionist now to Normal.

    Finish the level and the Panther style for that one is complete. You can also use this trick on Co-Op missions (that have check points) or with Assault and Ghost styles.


    Co-Op levels played also count towards the seven, so get a partner if need be and aim for chain kills. You can not do the change difficulty trick, however, you and your partner's scores combine at the end of the level.

    Easy to do Grim's Missions and Kobin's Missions on Panther and Assault.

    I'm beginning to wonder if I play the same game as you guys cause there is absolutely no way to change difficulty. I'm playing single player first Kobin mission

    ParadoxReal8So you can change it only in main mission from what I see, not the others. Good to know.

    ParadoxReal8But that's a very good trick.
    And if you calculate everything good, you can even manage to get 2 golds in the same level.

    For the PANTHER STYLE you need to kill with Silencer, execution or lethal takedown.

    x1 kill 75pts
    x2 kill 200pts
    x3 kill 374pts
    x4 kill 550pts

    *Clearing the level leaving everyone dead wont necessary net you the GOLD PANTHER unless you do some DOUBLE and TRIPLE EXECUTIONS.
    *Exploration doesn't count towards PANTHER Style.
    *If you playing split screen or online; the points you guys get count towards your both overall not an individual count.
    *To check your progress select the mission and press RB\LB to see what you have achieved so far.

    WEAPONS I used:
    SC4000 with scope and fully upgrade the range...etc.
    SC-1S again fully upgraded.

    MISSIONS that I did the PANTHER STYLE on:
    OPIUM FARM 2240pts
    FISH MARKET 2175pts
    (x4 kill must be achieved in this level to be able to get that amount)
    AIRSTRIP 1500pts
    LNG TERMINAL 3400pts

    Most of them you will need a score of 2000-3000 points on NORMAl I did get more that on ROOKIE !!!
    pts: The point I collected to get PANTHER GOLD on ROOKIE

    o SeduLOUs oHiding bodies doesn't add to your panther score. Neither does exploration.

    Not only do you need to stealth kill everyone, you also need to chain kills together. I just did Border Crossing with a co-op partner and we took seperate routes and co-ordinated our kills so that we always got 2-3 kills at the same time. This gave us some efficiency bonuses to take us to gold.

    There's a video of us doing that mission here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3CrXT3K3_lg&feature=share...
    It's a bit long because we were hanging around a lot and trying to set up kills together, but it gives you an idea and you can see the bonuses (1st kill 75 points, 2nd kill 200 points, 3rd kill 375 points)

    Well this is not a solution more a guide as well as Dalej66. But to get Panther Style points you need to do Silent Kills without being seen. Similar to ghost type but using lethal takedowns instead of non lethal. I would also suggest doing panther on all of Grims Missions as they require you not being detected so that means you won't be getting assault kills. Just take your time and remember if the detection bar is full but not yet detected it's still silent. When your playing normal missions make sure you kill all enemies as well.

    Also if you select a mission and press lb/rb on the SMI it will show you how many points you need to get the medal and if you press start during your mission it will tell you how many points you have and playing on harder modes grant more points but require more i believe to get gold. If anything else needs added please comment and i'll update.
