Target Score:- 1,000,000

Getting 2* on any level of Rambo is hard, but hopefully if you follow these tips after a few goes you will be able to unlock the 2* on all levels.

1:- Play on Green Beret.

2:- Use the following perks.

Buy one get one free (this is the game change it generates wrath pretty fast)

Don't make him angry (25% extra points in wrath works hand in hand with BOGOF)

Join the deaths (chain kills gives you a nice score boost so giving you more time to string them together can only be good)

3:- Use the M60 E3 this is the last heavy weapon you unlock in Trautmans Challenges, it does a load of damage, it's the most accurate heavy weapon & it has a massive ammo capacity. The reload is one of the hardest but it doesn't take much to get the timing down.

4:- Skills

Max out the Health, Wrath & Heavy Weapon lines ( spend the rest of the points as you see fit)

5:- Control

I found the default sensitivity to be to fast, I dialed it all the way down to 17 for more precise control, experiment to find what works best for you.

6:- Gameplay

So you've done all the prep now it's time to get those stars.

Soon as any level starts switch to the M60 fire off one bullet and perform a perfect reload, continue to perform perfect reloads as needed to keep the Reload Combo going. Also note the Reload Combo points only get added to your score if you screw up a reload or you FC the level, if you die you lose all the unbanked points and you may as well restart the level.

The combination of the BOGOF perk generating wrath when you take damage & you gaining wrath through kills should mean 90% of the time you will have 1 bar. My advice is to try and use wrath when you fill one bar as that's usually enough to kill all the enemies on screen. If you build more it's generally wasted when you transition from one skirmish to the next. Also because your using wrath so much do not waste time with cover, you should be healing yourself with the wrath kills.

Remember when your in wrath you don't expend ammo.

You should try and kill every enemy with a head shot (preferably whilst in wrath) as this is where the big points come, with a full 15 kill multiplier and in wrath you can get near 2k per kill depending on the enemy.

Do not use grenades,they may give you a kill chain boost but far more points are earned by individually head shotting each enemy. Same thing with barrels & vehicals do not blow them up with enemies near, instead try clear the nearby enemies then blow the barrel/vehical up for a nice point boost.

Speed speed speed, the biggest bonus for your score comes from your kill per minute, get stuck on an enemy who prats around in cover can destroy a run.

It's pretty hard putting all this together in one run as so much can go wrong wether it be missed perfect reload or you screw up a QTE.

Level Specific Tips

1st section is pretty straight forward, when the jeep turns up make sure you kill all the enemies before blowing the jeep up to maximise points.

The boat section is a real pain, start by taking out the 2 mounted guns at a distance,, the lock on really helps here.

This is one level where I break my no grenades rule, the enemies are so hard to hit with the boats movement I just lobbed a grenade in as they need to be killed quick as your boats health can't be replenished.

Use wrath when you have to destroy the mines, if you have a full 15 multiplier each mine in wrath us worth 6k.

Shooting the hatch windows also gives some good points.

Once off the boat it gets hectic but you have to keep a cool head. There will be 4 QTE at the start of this section with a further 2 later on but there will be also a lot of incidental enemies which can bag you a lot of extra points.

Hope this helps, but remember it is damn hard & you will need a fair few goes to get the run that nets you the 2*
