    I used above solution to start but to add to it and make it faster:
    Here are the results i got from running each map a few times(* means destroyed95-100%)
    Complex 157k
    Factory 55k*
    Cascade 65k
    Pipeline 90k
    Scrapheap 33k*
    Fortress 75k*
    Gulch 45k*
    Transmission 63k
    Watchtower 92k
    Vista 105k
    Complex is by far the best, and another note use the jetpack as the backback, and nuke for weapon and aim low, you get a ton more points if the building collapses vs blowing it all up.

    JayStenI found it especially beneficial to aim at the ground about a meter away from the wall you wanted blown up. The nuke takes away lots of points by disintegrating everything. But by allowing the large explosion to occur to the side of the building you get just the supportive wall blown up instead of everything else inside as well.

    I figured out that using nuke is fast but doesn't earn you that much points. From an average of 20 games i only scored 140-145k each game.
    If you are using Nano gun and tremor backpack you can score an average of 160-165k every game (even had 212k once. pure luck though).
    Just run through every building and use your backpack. When there is a wall just shoot your way through with the nano gun.
    It only takes one earthquake to destroy a building most of the time. Even if it doesn't collapse right away, it'll eventually after some seconds.

    As for the Setup
    Map : Complex
    Barrels on
    Collapse : high
    Rounds: 5

    Just a tip. You can destroy the huge tower in complex with one round of the nano gun. So you can just shoot it from far away instead of wasting time running to it.

    This method is faster in gaining points but you will also need to put a little more effort in it.

    Temp33TI can't seem to understand how you get so few points if you destroy all the buildings?
    Maybe you didn't set Collapse to high and the map must be complex. It gives by far the most points.

    JayStenI also didn't get great results from this setup. I too got crushed and blown up too often. Much easier for me to get 160+ with the nuke and aiming at the ground to the side of the structures.

    Temp33TYea well it might be a little bit stressful because you are beeing knocked over and over again. Only Advice i can give is to try it over and over again. After a while i knew where all the barrels where and i would not get killed by the building.
    Another thing is that you shouldn't try to directly hit the barrels(expect the one at the tower) with the nano gun as this will give you less points for whatever reason.
