For this guide you can get kills towards thrashers, whiplashes, beasts, sappers, and blackouts. Once you hear or see a special you need the achievement for focus everything on it because the bots will more then likely take it out either before you see it or after you do all the damage on it.

SAPPERS
-Mission: Into the Breach
-Difficulty: Insane
-Bot: Any
-Head to the area where you walk onto a catwalk to throw C4 charges into sapper pools. DO not throw any C4, instead just run around the pools. Sappers spawn 2-6 at a time and continue until you blow every pool up.

THRASHERS
-Mission: Revelation
-Difficulty: Insane
-Bot: Any
-Play through level until you have to unlock the gate leading to the escape route, the gate after you pick up the laptop for the second time. BEFORE unlocking that gate, set up a manual (player operated) turret infant of the door the survivor is stuck behind. Then set up a barricade in the door to your right and two barricades blocking the stairs to you left (the stair case next to the printer). Now you can get a sniper rifle or just rely on any other weapon, but the sniper takes out special enemies quickly (3-6 shots). Once everything is set up, go open gate and sit on the turret. Thrashers will spawn to your left through the windows, your right through the door, and through the window next to the office (if you're looking straight ahead). In about 40-60 minutes I got around 40-60, depending on how fast you kill them.

BEASTS and BLACKOUTS
-Mission: Revelation and R&D (I found quickest)
-Difficulty: Insane
-Bot: Any
-For Revelation and R&D missions, just play through normally. I found both specials spawn frequently and the missions are quick to run through. On average I get about 2-3 kills of each per mission play through.

WHIPLASHES
-Mission: R&D (I found easiest due to easy run through) BUT can play any level.
-Difficulty: Any but Insane spawns a lot of specials without overwhelming you with adds.
-Bot: Any
-On R&D I get around 3-6 whiplashes per mission play through.

I found a great spot to farm just the threshers. This is also a good spot to farm sappers if you need them too.

Difficulty: Easy
Bot skill: Average
Level: R & D

Play through the level normally until you get to the final area. Once you start the final sequence, enemies will continually spawn until you finish. It is here where threshers and sappers will spawn endlessly. Position yourself right next to the printer and health station to where you can see the two doors in front of you. What's great about this printer specifically is that this one carries a Valkyrie. This weapon will 1 shot most enemies and 1-3 shot threshers and your AI buddies will NEVER pick this up. You can use other weapons if you want, I just prefer the Valkyrie for it has splash damage. Enemies will come out of 3 spots if you stay in that same position. In the right door, in the left door, and the far left door. This is a good spot to farm for threshes but there are a couple flaws to this.


1. The AI often kills the threshers before I could, even on easy it was a challenge.
2. Sometimes the AI will run out of the building to go after thresher.
3. AI can block your Valkyrie shots just by standing in your way. Valkyries will not damage you or AI on easy.
4. You might not know where the thresher will come from until it is too late so be alert when you hear it.


This is what it should look like:






I would say I average about 50 threshers in an hour. It all depends on spawn rate and how much your AI buddies get in your way. I had tried a couple other spots but this where I had the most consistent luck.
