    As both of the previous guides have mentioned beating bots is an option. However if you want to do this really easily just sign in another account for a second controller, use a local game and then with 0 bots its just the two accounts in the game on different teams. Kill the guest/other account 5 times with no struggle and the win is yours (Plus 5 points for winning the round, assuming you set the kill/points limit at the lowest option=10). Rinse and Repeat on different maps. This is a lot quicker if you can learn the spawn points. Usually after the each kill you just swap spawn points so it stays nice and simple.

    - Canals
    - Gridlock
    - Mansion
    - Subway
    - Tyro Station

    I would suggest using bots however as it isn't as boring, but if you are having trouble beating them this is a good alternative.

    Octobot SuperI'm not sure this is quicker... I tried with a local controller and also with rooms full of bots and with the bots things seemed to go quicker, since I could get 6-7 points a round. Good solution otherwise

    j1ggs4wplus side to this, even though it takes a little longer, you get more rounds completed for "Party Like It's 1999".

    Another way to do this is to start a wingman game with 3 bots, round time 2 minutes and victory limit 10. There will be 3 teams, you will be with a bot. And then, nothing is easier than to destroy two teams attacking each other with the army of two (you and your bot). Takes 4 rounds to win the game.

    EDIT: The EASIEST way is to get a friend, 8 bots, easy difficulty. We've almost everytime won in the second round.

    SG CodSteaksWouldn't 3 teams of 2 require 5 bots if you're playing by yourself?

    Darth Hawk CZNo... bots firstly fill a slot in the teams (the second place in your team, because it was the first place available for bots) and after that they start filling the second available slot. This means, should work with 5 bots => 5 teams, you with a bot

    SG CodSteaksOh I see, so it'll be your 2-man army against 2 1-bot teams. Makes sense. I'm sure I would have figured that out as soon as I used your method, sorry to question it beforehand ;)
