    If you're viewing this on the TrueAchievement app on your Xbox One, please view this solution on your computer! The rest of the solution doesn't show on the app.

    This achievement has a bug that forbids you from unlocking it. Please be aware: if you get the bug--which at this point no one is quite sure about how you get it--you will not be able to unlock the achievement, ever.

    Okay, before we get into what is required for this stupid achievement, there are a couple-of-ground rules and info; FAQ's and un-realistic/realistic expectations if you will:

    1. If you cannot finish the 'training simulator' on 'realistic' first, then don't even bother going for this achievement.

    2. The list is in order of appearance, not in-order of how you're going to get the decorations, however, I will give an idea of how you'll unlock them as you progress.

    3. Be prepared to join some gaming sessions -- if you don't like people this achievement probably isn't for you.

    4. This achievement will probably take you (depending on skill and luck) somewhere between 40-80 hours to complete.

    5. Go and finish the game before reading this solution, please. I've kept it spoiler free, but you'll understand it better after the game is over.

    6. This achievement can be glitchy.

    7. Now, I'm only human, which means I'm sure there's a bucket-ton of spelling and grammar mistakes that I didn't notice amongst all this writing, and I'm sorry.

    8. Please send me a Private Message with any questions, info, details and problems instead of spamming them in the comments section, thanks (make sure to click the drop-down menu underneath my Gamerpic): left 4 zaneage

    9. Finally, a special thanks to everyone that made this solution possible: OdinElite, Whaticles, Tweaky666, SwelterinBeaver, Gavitize, EaseAndInspire, Spiderrichard, xx Kenshira xx, FEAR LEGEND81, A Devient Hero, KillerZ x Ace, WACKY WOOKlEE, Lucas Jai, Sighris, DinDono and everyone that commented!

    You will earn (well, at least should be earning) these decorations in-order as follows ("1." being the first decoration, and "12." being the last (the last 3 decorations all unlock at once)):

    1. Chronicler
    2. Legendary Service
    3. Heroic Service
    4. Tried and True
    5. Dedicated to Excellence
    6. Armament Superiority
    7. Grim Reaper
    8. Immortal Fame
    9. Above and Beyond
    10. Master of Arms
    11. Duty Calls
    12. Full Honors

    Anyway, lets begin:

    Okay, so this achievement is a big one, and is going to take you a while -- so, prepare for tediousness. To start off, this achievement is very similar to Black ops 2's 'Giant Accomplishment' achievement, in which you were required to do challenges throughout the campaign, Black ops 3 however has upped the ante.

    Here are the requirements for this achievement (PS if you want to check the status of the achievement, go to your room in the mission briefing area (the area where you can edit your weapons, play training, upgrade Cyber Cores, etc), go into your room and you'll see an empty cabinet (unless you unlocked one of the medals already) and click cn_X, you will see these requirements):

    If at any point you want to check how many kills/collectibles/mission scores/accolades without having to go into a campaign game press cn_start from the main menu of multiplayer/campaign/zombies, then cn_RB twice so that you get to Barracks, press campaign, press weapons/collectibles/mission scores/accolades for any information on what you've missed or what you need to get done throughout the campaign.


    Master of Arms: Earn all Campaign Weapons, Attachments, and Camos.

    Earn is the key word here. Unlock all the weapons and unlock all the attachments/camos associated with that weapon. So for example on the Kuda you'll need to get to the max rank to get all attachments and 650 kills for all camos. For the rest of the weapons you'll need to rank up throughout the campaign. The last weapon you unlock is at level 20. In total you'll need a whopping 17,750+ kills for all the camos on all the weapons. Secondary weapons count! The weapon level will come to you naturally as you go for the camo's.

    Below I will list 3 places where farming kills is most effective:

    "3." is without-a-doubt the fastest method on the internet: you can get 3 guns finished in an hour. Please use this method over all the others -- the other methods are there in-case you get bored.

    1. In the mission 'Rise and Fall',
    *** Spoiler - click to reveal ***
    If you need ammo there's an ammo cache right next to the door you walked out of at the start of this section in the mission.

    2. In the final mission, 'Life' you'll come to a section where there's a lot of enemies, after dropping down from a crashed aeroplane head left (make sure to avoid all enemies until you get to a room with an ammo box), the room is located in the middle of the area on the left, walk in through the door and they'll be another door in front of you. now enemies will be dropping down from above so just slightly peak out and shoot them as they drop. This should net you a fair amount of kills while still being safe, if you need to change classes at any point run back to the area where you dropped down from and change classes there.

    3. In the same area as previously mentioned kill the big mech thingy (forgot what it's called) at the start of the area (from where you dropped down earlier). As soon as it dies you'll get a checkpoint, from there run all the way to the left (as far as you can go), and you'll reach a little room with two entrances, the robots will be coming out of the two spawn stations in front of you. This method is extremely fast, however it is very risky. Do it at your own risk, beware of the talons that fly in from time-to-time. Special thanks to OdinElite for pointing this out in the comments.

    If you die you will lose all progress since the last checkpoint!

    Special thanks to Whaticles for pointing this out in the comments: "Saving and quitting saves progess. If you die, you can even press start quickly and save and quit to save any progress"

    Special thanks to Tweaky666 who reports that, the Annihilator Pistol and the War Machine are required for the decoration. If you're unsure about how many kills you have -- go to the 'Barracks' (refer to above).

    Special thanks to SwelterinBeaver for pointing out that if you wanted to knockout 2 birds with one stone, you can: "Wanted to point out two things that may help with the kills for the camo, if someone uses the overkill (think it is called that) wildcard available at level 20 you can work on two primary weapons instead of a secondary weapon. (Could be worth adding how to select this as it took me a while to find it, go to the armory select which the five set ups you want to change, move down past the tactical and lethal grenades and select the wildcard)"

    I highly recommend doing 'Duty Calls' and 'Master of Arms' simultaneously.

    I'd finish 2-4 guns (roughly 1500 kills) before saving and quitting, just to be safe.

    For anyone encountering glitches with this decoration:

    Special thanks to Gavitize for pointing this out for anyone that doesn't have this decoration: "I finally got it :) lets go, If you do not have the camo accolade, start up a combat immersion and get a kill with the Annihilator and then kill yourself. Then restart your console and then load the game back up. Once loaded enter a safe house and it should work."


    Dedicated to Excellence: Fully upgrade all Cyber Cores.

    For this you'll need to upgrade each Cyber Core twice at the Cyber Core table. You'll need a total of 42 fabrication points, which can be earned through playing the campaign, unlocking accolades and unlocking camos. The three classes you'll need to max out are: Control, Martial, and Chaos with 14 points in each. You'll know they've been fully upgraded when there's two yellow arrows pointing up on each of the Cyber Core's.

    Armament Superiority: Unlock and purchase all weapons, lethals, tacticals, and CyberCombat Abilities.

    Do the same thing you did in Dedicated to Excellence for this one. You will need 38 fabrication points to unlock everything. The last weapon you unlock will be the 'Gorgan' at level 20 (Max level).

    Unlock all the weapons first, then lethals and tacticals', and then finally the CyberCombat Abilities.


    Heroic Service: Complete the Campaign on the Veteran difficulty setting.

    Just finish the game on Veteran, simple. Recommend doing this with a group of 4 people to make it easier.

    Is stackable with Legendary Service and Immortal Fame.

    Read Legendary Service and Immortal Fame for some tips and tricks.


    Legendary Service: Complete the Campaign on the Realistic difficulty setting.

    Take it slow, very slow; make sure you kill all the enemies in the area before advancing throughout the whole game -- this doesn't work in some areas, however.

    Everyone should equip 'Emergency Reserve'.

    Have a player at the back reviving players, don't run off, always stick together, equip 'Emergency Reserve' in the create-a-class menu, it is possible to do this solo but I strongly encourage you to team up with 3 other players.

    There will be sections of the game where it seems impossible, e.g. the end of
    *** Spoiler - click to reveal ***


    Immortal Fame Complete every mission in the game at least once on Veteran difficulty without restarting from a checkpoint.

    I've (with the help of others) included two methods to tackling this decoration: one being a solo method and the other being a co-op method, obviously I recommend co-op, but the solo one is there if you need it.

    Solo Method:

    Recommend following the tips in 'Legendary Service' to make things a little easier.

    Special thanks to EaseAndInspire for this helpful tip for solo players: if you save and quit the moment you die, you can resume game from the main menu and it still counts as never using a checkpoint. Now of course this only works if youre playing on your main playthroughs and getting the "progress has been saved" at the top of the screen when you hit a checkpoint. And also the emergency reserve thing works wonders too, as you get a new one every time you reach a select Loadout box during the mission. Anyways just thought I'd throw that out there for anyone who might be having trouble.

    Co-op Method:

    Do it with 4 players and in the event that you all die, restart the mission. Recommend following the tips in 'Legendary Service' to make things a little easier.

    Be prepared for un-expecting glitches that randomly pop-up and stop you from continuing through the level, or evening finishing.

    Its been reported by users in the comments that this decoration hasn't unlocked for them. The general consensus has come to the conclusion that:

    1. The host got the achievement, and the other 3 players in the party have not got it (some users have reported 2 out of 4 players getting it). If you were one of the people that did not receive the achievement, replay the first mission and/or replay any mission you think might not have counted.

    2. If you lag/disconnect from a game at any point during your run-through this decoration then restart the mission from the main menu.

    3. If you all die during a mission it's best to restart from the main menu.

    If none of these are helpful unfortunately you'll have to wait until the latest patch for a fix.

    Above and Beyond: Complete all Accolades for all Missions.

    At your home base/mission debriefing place, go to the 'Mission Record Vault' (always located right next to the door before a mission) and press cn_RB so that you go to 'Accolades'. Here you'll see all the upcoming accolades for the upcoming mission. I suggest you do most of these on the easiest difficulty. For the points, difficulty doesn't matter, just aim for the head often and play on solo and you should get it every mission.

    Special thanks to xx Kenshira xx for pointing out the Prima Guide and FEAR LEGEND81 for pointing out the video guides in the comments.

    All the guides together: (Text Guide) (Video Guide) (Video Guide with speech)

    The three different guides I listed above all serve a different purpose and cater to different peoples needs, preferences, and helps them better understand the accolades at hand. It is highly recommended that you watch both Youtube guides before the mission to get a good idea of how to get the accolades.

    Its also with mentioning: read most, if not all the comments in the comment section of the vides -- there's some incredibly useful alternatives to some of the ones' shown in the videos.

    If you miss any accolades, don't worry, this can be done on as many playthrough's as you like.

    This decoration is one of the longest ones -- I suggest mixing up with 'Master of Arms' (read above).

    Special thanks to A Devient Hero for an incorrect link!


    Duty Calls: Complete all Campaign Challenges.

    From the multiplayer/campaign/zombies main menu's press cn_start, than cn_RB once, then click on campaign to see three different categories: Missions, Tools of the Trade and Career.


    Very simple, just finish every mission in the game on either Hardened, Veteran or Realistic. This will come either naturally or when you're going for Immortal Fame

    Tools of the Trade:

    All credit goes to KillerZ x Ace who has made an extensive guide on this section of the challenge:
    Solution for Personal Decorator In Call of Duty: Black Ops III

    My only recommendation is to do some of these challenges while doing 'Master of Arms'


    Basically the section where you are required to complete an X amount of things in order for completion: accolades, decorations, fabrication kits, etc.

    Don't worry! One of the challenges requires you to get an X amount of decorations in order for it to unlock, it skips one when (whatever your second or third last decoration is) unlocked and just unlocks all of them at once.

    Now, the training simulator…:

    There's a lot of ways of tackling this challenge, but this should be the first thing you get out-of the way:

    Special thanks to WACKY WOOKlEE for pointing out this guide in the comments. All the credit goes to BeatminazYT for the video and the setup:

    Primary: Gorgon with 6 attachments - Reflex, Grip, Quickdraw, Stock, Extended Mag, FMJ
    Secondary: War Machine
    Lethal: Semtex
    Tactical: Shock Charge
    Tac-Rig: Traversal Enchancement & Repulsor Armor


    Special thanks to Lucas Jai for this helpful guide he posted in the comments: "Combat Simulator on Realistic (Invincible method) - You need a friend, or a second controller, I'll speak from a second controller POV, but just sub a friend in instead if it applies.
    Go into the campaign menu (not in a safehouse) and load in your second controller for co-op play. Choose to "Select Mission' and select 'In Darkness', you should now be in the "reply mission" menu, just hit to begin. You'll go through the cutscene and end up in the safehouse for that story-arc. Now, bring both controllers over to the combat simulator and set it to Realistic difficulty, YOU sit first, on whatever chair and have your dummy sit, (AFTER YOU'RE SEATED AND IN THE MENU TO CUSTOMIZE LOADOUT/BEGIN) on the same chair. You'll see a weird animation glitch (not super noticeable) where you'll see the inside of their head/eyebrows. Now, click start on both controllers at THE SAME TIME, if done correctly you'll get a white-screen for several seconds and when the game loads the person who sat first will now be invincible. How do you tell? If you can't see your ammo/open your core powers. You'll still be able to activate the rounds, so just go through killing your way to the achievement, remember to pick up a rocket from the ammo-crates if you forgot to bring your own. Now, what about your dummy? Personally, I had some problems with the challenge unlocking with the dummy there, so, I jumped the dummy off the cliff at the beginning and just had him sit in the 'you failed' screen without exiting the combat simulator till I finished. I don't know if they can actually fully leave or not, but, why risk it.

    Note: Sometimes for whatever reason I was unable to start the first wave with the invincible controller, so keep your dummy alive to start the first wave, and then you're fine.

    Note: Another plus to kill your friend/dummy is that, it's not MEANT to have two people in there, so the game puts TWO objective spheres, and both CAN be activated for double the wave, it gets frustrating/confusing, so it's easier to just kill the dummy off to let you focus and guarentee you're waves finishing and not theirs."

    Here's a glitch method posted by Sighris -- all credit goes to him: Solution for Personal Decorator In Call of Duty: Black Ops III

    Here's another legit method posted by Purple DinDono -- all credit goes to him for this solution: Solution for Personal Decorator In Call of Duty: Black Ops III

    If none of this is helpful, read the comments for this solution; some users have posted some good and helpful tips for anyone struggling.

    Special thanks to user xx Kenshira xx for pointing out that: Challenges are not accolades (stupid me).

    Tried and True: Earn a score of 35,000 in the Training Simulator.

    Again, all credit goes to PowerPyx for this guide:


    Grim Reaper: Neutralize 2000 hostiles.

    This will come naturally if you're going for the achievement, however if you wanna farm kills read the 'Master of Arms' section above.


    Full Honors: Earn all Campaign Decorations.

    After you've earned all of the above decorations you'll receive your well deserved achievement, congratulations, I applaud you for getting this ridiculous achievement.

    This'll be you when it unlocks:

    Anyway, thanks for reading. If you have any comments just post in the comments or send me a PM. Happy Hunting everyone!

    Dingus NoobletSo I ended up resetting my stats, and now I've discovered a simple glitch that I haven't seen anyone else mention.

    So it's been said that when you're going for the veteran without dying medal, you can save and quit as soon as you die. This will count for the medal but will not count for the Untouched accolades.

    Well, instead of saving and quitting, pause the game as soon you die and manually close the game by hitting the xbox button, highlighting the game, pressing start and then quit. Now you can cheese the Untouched accolades as well.

    There is currently glitch to beat combat immersion on realistic. The glitch will make you invincible. I was able to also get the 35k decoration at same time. Below is step by step process.

    (Rewrote for simplicity)
    Player 1 = host.
    Player 2 = player 2.

    1. Have host invite you to a campaign game party.(at menu not in safe house)

    2. Have host load up mission 3. (It'll put you in safe house after cutscene)

    3. After both load in, looking towards the combat simulator from the barracks, player 2 sit in the right hand chair, then exit chair and host sit in the chair.

    4. Have host hover over Begin Immersion while player 2 leaves the game.

    5. Player 2 Join back in through your friends tab in the social menu.(hit Y from black ops menu, don't use friends/party snap)

    6. After loading in, walk over to the host. If the chair they are in spins towards you like it is empty, you can sit in it.

    7. Both players hit Begin Immersion at the same time. Both should load in.

    8. Player with God mode will not have an ammo counter on their hud. Player without God mode should die during wave 1 so the God mode player can finish the combat immersion.

    9. After God mode player finishes combat immersion, reverse the steps, having your friend do everything you had done so you both finish it.

    I haven't seen any guides about getting the "Tools of the Trade" challenge done yet, so I'll try my best giving you guys some tips how to get this done.

    I have also posted a video of me farming kills for weapon camo's at the bottem of this guide. In my opinion it's the best spot for farming weapon kills (and CyberCore ability kills). It's in the mission "Rise and Fall" where you're supposed to use your Spike Launcher. At the end of the video, I'll show you that I had 200+ kills within 5 minutes. Obviously, play on Recruit difficulty to make your life a lot easier.

    I have written down a list with all the challenges needed for this assignment + the best way to get them. My advise is to use your abilities as much as you can throughout the campaign when you are going for: Accolades, a certain difficulty or farming kills for your weapon camo's because this will narrow down the process significantly. The best place to farm your ability kills is in the mission "Rise and Fall" when you get your Spike Launcher and you have destroyed 3 tunnel systems, because the enemies will spawn infinitely (there are multiple ammo crates around the place if you need ammo).

    NOTE: Once you have reached level 20 (maximum level) in the campaign they let you switch to different CyberCore abbilities during your game. This makes this challenge much easier, because you can switch right to another ability when you have finished one. You can upgrade your Core abilities at your safehouse by selecting them in the CyberCore station. This makes your abilities significantly stronger/better and it reduces cooldown times.

    You can check your progress by pressing cn_start in the main menu --> Challenges --> Campaign --> Tools of the Trade. Unfortunately, you can't access this menu while being in your Safehouse.

    In order to use your CyberCore ability hold down cn_down to choose your ability and hold down both cn_LB cn_RB at the same time to use it.

    The list:

    Control Core Mastery III - Use Control CyberCore abilities against 500 enemies.

    Martial Core Mastery III - Use Martial CyberCore abilities against 500 enemies.

    Chaos Core Mastery III - Use Chaos CyberCore abilities against 500 enemies.

    It doesn't matter which Core ability you use, as long if it is from the right Core tree.
    The best abilities to use are: Terminal Breakdown (Control Core), Mass Weapon Lockout (Martial Core) and Mass Overload (Chaos Core). These abilities target multiple enemies at a time. Easily done while grinding weapon kills, just use your ability as soon as it is available.

    Commandeered III - Kill 100 enemies using Remotely Hijacked robots.

    Remote Hijack is a Control Core ability. Simply hijack any robot (Talon, Cerberus, R.A.P.S, A.S.P, P.A.W.W.S or Turret) and get 100 kills total.

    Fast as Lightning III - Kill 100 enemies with a follow up Rapid Strike melee attack.

    Rapid Strike is a Martial Core ability. For a kill to count, it must be the second or third kill in sequence - the first rapid strike doesn't count. Therefore, only use it when there are several enemies in close proximity. You have to be set to the Martial Core to be able to do this, it doesn't matter which ability you have it on however.
    There is an achievement you can get with this ability: "Bliff! Bap! KaPow!" it requires you to kill 3 enemies in a melee combo (a rapid strike) - worth 10G.

    Inferno III - Kill 100 enemies in the explosion from Immolated enemies.

    Immolation is a Chaos Core ability. It sets robots on fire causing them to explode, and if upgraded to Adaptive Immolation, it will blow up the explosives on human enemies. The immolated enemy doesn't count, only the enemies killed by the explosion, so use it on groups of robots or humans. The best place to do this is in the mission "Hypocenter" when you are trying to kill/save Diaz. The robots will spawn infinitely as long as you don't blow up the 3rd core. You can train them behind you to make them easier targets and simply use (Adaptive)Immolation on the center robot.

    Juiced III - Debilitate 135 enemies with an electrostatic discharge.

    For this, you must use Homing Surge, Terminal Breakdown or Ravage Core, which are Control Core abilities. Use Homing Surge and Ravage Core on robots in groups to debilitate multiple at a time. Can be stacked with 3 Laws Compliant III.
    Use Terminal Breakdown on groups of human enemies to fry their brains.

    Shockwave III - Knock down or kill 100 enemies using Concussive Wave.

    Concussive Wave is a Martial Core ability. Simply get kills with it or knock enemies down, nothing special.

    Pulverized III - Pulverise 100 enemies using Overwhelming Force.

    Overwhelming Force is a Martial Core ability, which becomes Unstoppable Force when upgraded. Charge through groups of enemies for this one.
    There is an achievement you can get with this ability: "Rolling Heavy" it requires you to kill 5 enemies using one burst of Unstoppable Force - worth 10G.

    3 Laws Compliant III - Using Ravage Core, debilitate or kill 100 enemies with a volatile power core.

    Ravage Core is a Control Core ability. Press cn_RB when near a robot to rip it's core out and throw it like a grenade. Only enemies effected by the core will count. You have to be set to the Control Core to be able to do this. Just like Rapid Strike, it doesn't matter which ability you have it on. The best place to do this is in the mission "Hypocenter" when you are trying to kill/save Diaz. The robots will spawn infinitely as long as you don't blow up the 3rd core. You can train them behind you to make them easier targets and simply use Ravage Core on the front robot and throw the core between the other robots.

    Swarmed III - Kill 125 enemies while they are blinded by Fireflies.

    Firefly Swarm is a Chaos Core ability. Use it on human enemies to distract them, then kill them.

    Demolition Expert III - Earn 150 kills with explosives.

    Self explanatory. Grenades, launchers, barrels, anything that explodes. You will automatically get this while playing campaign.

    My video:
    If you are having trouble and you're dying a lot, try to take it slow. The enemies will spawn infinitely. I was a bit to greedy and that almost lead to my dead. Use your invisibility wisely and if you are hurt and have no invisibility, take cover behind the concrete blocks on the right. You can also use your Firefly Swarm instead of your invisibility, it might even be more effective. Before you start this mission, make sure you have the Tac-Rig "Copycat" in your active slot. Now, you will be able to pick up any gun from the ground and level dat gun as soon as you are finished with your primary weapon. Why? Well, there is no mobile armory in that place so it would be a waste of time to quit the mission and start it all over with a new weapon. If you press cn_back during your game, you can track how many kills you have. Remember, you also need 150 kills with the Annihilator and 300 kills with the War Machine (the camo's for these guns are invisible but they do count for the assignment). IF YOU DIE WHILE FARMING KILLS, YOU WILL LOSE ALL YOUR PROGRESS! SO MAKE SURE AFTER YOU FEEL YOU ARE DONE WITH YOUR WEAPON, YOU TRIGGER THE NEXT CHECKPOINT! Blow up all the tunnels and you will spawn next to a mobile armory, your checkpoint will trigger right there. You can safely quit your game now.
    So in total, you will need the following amount of kills with every single gun in the game:

    - 650 kills with every Assault Rifle
    - 650 kills with every Light Machine Gun
    - 650 kills with every Sniper Rifle
    - 650 kills with every Shotgun
    - 300 kills with every Rocket Launcher
    - 150 kills with every Pistol
    - 150 kills with the Annihilator & 300 kills with the War Machine

    That is 18.250 kills total!

    You can track your weapon progress by going to the Weapon Armory in your Safehouse or by going to your Barracks -> Campaign --> Weapons.


    I really hope that this guide will help you completing the Tools of the Trade assignment. Personally I had some trouble figuring out what to do exactly, because it can be a bit vague, but after a while I figured out what to do.

    If you vote down, please tell me why and how I can improve this guide and if you have any questions or suggestions, please don't hesitate to ask/explain them in the comments below or in a private message.

    I wish all of you the best of luck, this achievement will definitely test your patience and it is up to you to decide how committed you are wink

    Dr MartyNice summary for the core challenges. But the kill farming spot is not the best. In 'Life' you can get kills much faster, and there's a weapons supply crate as well, so you can change your load out.

    qManballinI agree with Dr Marty. The mission "Life" and the wolf spawn is a much better location with absolutely no risk for most of the weapons. The exceptions of course being the shotguns and that one vehicle lock-on only weapon.

    Obviously, the shotgun farm I would agree with OP utilizing the infinite spawn in "Rise & Fall". However, I found myself getting too reckless and would occasionally die losing all the progress for nothing. My strategy for farming this with the least amount of risk where I literally died 0 times compared to the 10+ times I was careless was by not setting up any of the spikes and running and gunning to the breached wall on the other side of the war zone entrance. From here, I would lay prone next to the barricades immediately to the right of the hole in the wall and hip fire shotgun on the enemies as they strafe by. The enemies obviously know you're there and would shoot at you as they're strafing by, but on recruit difficulty, they will be unable to kill you. Make sure you have repulsor armor as well as copy cat on. When you run low/out of ammo, I would immediately use camo and run over the dead bodies trying to max out before returning to the prone position by the barricade. Again, random grenades would usually get repulsed away and the seldom drones flying by won't do much damage to the point of near-death..
