Hey guys unlike the other guides this guide will be focused on Whiplashes only. You will still get quite a lot of Thresher kills. Sappers too if you really need to get them. You should get Sappers way sooner than Threshers and Whiplashes just playing casually through the game and farming other kills.

Method: SOLO
•Campaign 2-3 The Diversion
•Casual Difficulty
(Specials die quicker and kill all commons in one shot)
•Bot Skill: Any
(I personally put it on Average, less kill stealing and babysitting)
THIS IS THE ONLY MAP I KNOW WHERE WHIPLASHES SPAWN AFTER THE RESCUE VEHICLE HAS ARRIVED AND DECIDE TO FARM.

1. Run through the mission as normal until you get to the giant factory where you have to turn all the valves. Continue doing the mission throughout the factory until you have finished and have to leave via the back gate. Do not leave the factory area yet. There is a Valkyrie hidden in the building. I have only found it in these three places.

2. After acquiring the Valkyrie and moving on proceed through the back gate and continue with the mission until the finale area. TRY NOT TO WASTE ANY OF ITS AMMO! When you get to this area there is another Valkyrie hidden for when you have used your previous one. I have only found this one in these three places.

3. Once you have turned the power on and got all your health etc. It's time to fortify. I used one fence at the top of the outer stairs and two at the top of the inside stairs. You can put the flames upgrade on them if you want them to last abit longer. The AIs shoot commons off the fences anyway. If you want you can get two Magnums from the weapon craft station downstairs to kill any extra unwanted commons so save fences for longer. Hold out in the position I am in and you cover all the inside stairs and the long run any enemy has to do from the right. You can also hold out in the area in the second image against the shelves as this gives you a good view of the enemies coming from the entrance but you have more area to watch. Each area has its own perk. When done farming, run to the pier and finish the mission to see your stats.

EXTRA NOTES: Save medkits by using the heal station in the garage next to the pier you have to run to at the end. Use this before starting the finale. This keeps your AIs from going down and killing the commons falling in from above. AIs will automatically kill everything falling in through the hole in the roof and luckily the Whiplash comes up both stairs and rarely through the hole. Sometimes on rare occasions the AIs will fall off the edge on their own and ring back round. They maybe trying to go for the rescue, ammo or crafting station. Just keep a close watch on them as they sometimes get grabbed doing this leading to a free kill for you. If you sprinted through the mission and are using the Valkyrie on just Threshers, Whiplashes, Sappers and bosses only then you should come out with some good stats. I normally run out of ammo in my second Valkyrie and finish the mission around 35-45 minutes.

FINAL STATS:

These stats can vary depending on spawns. E.g: I had three Threshers in under one minute only. I've also had two Whiplashes and a Sapper pawn in under a minute. I've even had just one Whiplash in a whole minute. Also remember the AIs will steal quite a few of your kills because they can and will.

Here is a screenshot of my stats after a 35 minute session using just the Valkyrie. If anybody wants to continue after the Valkyrie, you can grab a weapon from the craft station. I normally finish after Valkyrie runs out of ammo. On this particular run I actually wasted abit of Valkyrie on a beast prior to the farm so I could of done better but this was still a decent run.

I've got a great spot to farm just the Whiplashes. You can also get a bunch of sapppers in the process of doing this too. These are the only special ones that spawned during the final sequence.

Difficulty: Easy
Bot skill: Average
Level: Data Recovery

First you want to play through the level normally until you get to the very end. In the process you will want to find a mounted turret and carry it with you. I usually found one half way though when you have to turn the 4 valves. This can be done with regular weapons but turrets will never run out of ammo. Essentially the turret is required. At the end you will have to open one final gate and then escape through a tunnel. Don't go through that tunnel, instead take that mounted turret you found (hopefully) and place it near the exit behind the fan blade and the pallet of boxes in the middle of the room. ALL of the enemies will come from the doorway you just came though from the long hallway. Shoot into the hallway with your turret and mow down anything that moves. Your AI buddies will move around and behind you a lot. If the AI get in front of your turret, just put a few bullets in their back and they will eventually move.

This is what it should look like:




I killed about 90-95% of the whiplashes that spawned this way since AI wont shoot until they were closer. I let the AI deal with most of the drones while I waited for whiplashes and sappers. Within a hour I got 80 whiplash kills. Your results can vary with the spawn rates.
