Just a heads-up before we jump into this, you most likely won't get this on the first run of each mission. The reason for this is that searching through each area for the soda can collectibles takes up time which factors into score. Weapon crates are somewhat easier to find, but you may need to go out of your way to find them in some cases.

Weapons/Collectibles:
Each mission has two weapon crates and seven soda cans to find. The soda cans have a blue glow around them so you may be able to catch one in the corner of the screen while looking around. You do not need to collect them all in one run, and any you have picked up previously will be removed from its location. You will need to finish the mission for them to be counted however.

In the later missions, some collectibles will be out of reach. To get them, use the air attack while holding forward to grab them.

If you collect every weapon with one character, you'll unlock Collector.

Score:
There are a number of factors that determine your overall score at the end.
- You receive points for each hit and kill on an enemy.
(Setting enemies on fire counts as hit damage)
- Finishing objectives will give you a base amount of points.
(1000, 2000 etc.)
- Playing on harder difficulties gives you bonus points at the end.
(10k for Regular/20k for Tough/30k for Rock Hard)
- Clearing the mission as fast as possible earns a bonus multiplier.
(10-15min gives 2.0x average, 15-20min gives 1.5x average etc.)

You can also rack up a combo score which gets significantly higher the longer you keep it going. For a more in-depth look on how to get the most of this, check the solution below:

By the time you finish the last mission, you should be more than ready to go back and collect any golden gloves you missed. You are only as good as your character is, so be sure to build your character to your liking.

Tips:
If you do happen to get a high score for the mission and miss a collectible, resulting in just a bronze/silver, don't panic! You only ever need to get that score once (which also gives you 3SP), and any collectibles you find on another run will contribute to your golden glove even if you don't earn the high score again.

When going for score, be quick but cautious. Head towards any items and/or locations pointed out to complete objectives, and avoid taking detours. Always fight hordes as early as possible if you're aiming to keep your combo going.

When using guns, never use your special skill(s) until you run out of ammo. The reason for this is that the skills eat away any remaining ammo even though you're given a different gun with infinite ammo for a short amount of time.

Watch the floor around flying enemies. Sometimes you'll end up in some heated fights and these guys will shoot an exploding egg nearby that sets off after a short time. Avoid exploding barrels also, as the blast will break your combo.

The most common rule. Do not die. If you lose all your lives, your score will be reset back to 0 if you continue from a checkpoint. Play on Regular if you don't feel like taking a risk.
