    I have a method that will net you 100 kills in about 5-6 min. You'll need a second controller as this is done in split screen co-op. It can be done with just you and the AI, but you will get between 70-90 kills in about 3-4 min. instead. Weapon customization and loadout is important to achieve the best time, so I will list the optimal settings as well.

    Start a split screen game on casual difficulty and use the chapter select to load "The Saboteurs" chapter checkpoint (second to last checkpoint of Chapter 9), the mission will begin with a short cutscene detailing the objective to stop the train. Once this is done, move both you and your partner into the small alcove directly behind you and enter the weapon customization menu. You will either want to upgrade the M416 (primary) or the AK-47 (primary) but they both have equivalent stats when maxed out properly.

    Equip the following:
    Primary - AK-47/M416
    Barrel - SC-4 TITYOS
    Stock - HL Reflex Core
    Cartridge - AK-47 30 Round Mag.*
    Front mount - Slanted G5 Grip
    Suppressor - E3 Muz. Enhancer
    Scope - Red Dot [3X]

    Secondary - Desert Eagle (DE-0.44)
    Suppressor - SV5 Muz. Reducer

    Special - You probably won't ever need to use, just in case pick your favorite snipe.

    *although your clip size is smaller your damage is increased which is much more essential, and you still will have the same overall amount of ammunition.

    Now that the customization is done, exit (don't worry about customizing your partner, his kills don't count toward your total) and quickly move your partner behind cover of the first column to the right, outside of the alcove you are standing in. Then you will want to move yourself outside of the alcove to the stack of boxes on the left. (MAKE SURE TO STAY ON THE DOCK!)

    From here I recommend switching to your desert eagle and using it to snipe the enemies in the alley in front of you. There are other enemies across this section, but you will want to focus on the ones directly in front of you to maximize the time spent. Time your shots carefully and you should only need one well placed round to take down an enemy. Every so often an enemy will get on the turret so be sure to take them out as quickly as possible, also occasionally an enemy will run and hide behind a tall stack of boxes to your left. Be sure to keep an eye out for this and try to shoot them before arriving there as it can be difficult to shoot them while they are in that position. Feel free to alternate between your primary and secondary at your leisure, just be sure not to use ammunition frivolously.

    You can check how many enemies (per session) have been killed by pressing start at any time and looking at the bottom right of the screen. 100 is the maximum that can be killed in this area, so once you have hit this number you will simply want to restart the checkpoint and repeat. When you do this however your changes to your weapons are reset, so you can remedy this by having your partner step jump you over the wall and getting a checkpoint first and then you will need to quit and select the chapter over again. After doing this once the changes are saved and you can restart when you get done killing 100 enemies.

    Sorry for the long read, I like to be detail oriented. Hope this helps!

    WiizKiinThis is a great spot for getting those kills up, well done bud.
    As you shoot them back to their spawn point, dont be afraid to lob a grenade at the alley opening and catch them as they run out

    EhrenfriedWhen I got to the spot I was wondering because it looked like they spawn infinite.
    This method workes best and I will do the Beast with it.

    I would like to add to Mumbo Jumbo UK's post by pointing out that if you shoot any barrels to kills off any soldiers, it does NOT count as a kill. Stupid as that may be, it does not add to your kill count. Also, as mentioned, doing this in Split-Screen allows you to get all the kills which on average can range from 50-60+. My personal record on this was 63 kills all in which only takes 2:10 per run.

    I'm going to argue that this is the fastest way to get kills. The chapter checkpoint is called "The Fastest Way Down", in chapter 2.

    tragik1978I agree with 'a man in flames', but i did not discover that the drum kills didn't count till the last 500 i needed.. my record was 70 kills for me and 8 for AI.. One thing i found was once you get on the platform, arm your upgraded (special) nade launcher. run to the right of the platform and you send 3 nades down on the guys running out. Then run to the other side (left) and throw two more nades at the guys running down below. Then run back to the right side again and you can get off another 3 more nades all before the back to back starts. I have gotten 12- 15 kills (AI -0) before back to back starts up.

    fritzscrollI am going for this chevo but left many of the ones found in the campaign(ie finding all cats, all radio's, etc) for later runthroughs so it didn't seem like such a grind to kill all the enemies as I was also going for other chevo's in the later campaign runs. Just a thought to any who are still grinding

    if you have the DLC just load chapter 9 act HORNETS NEST, kill first wave of enemy and then jump down into next section and kill all enemy that keep on spawning you should get about a 100 kills in a few mins of playing. Rinse and repeat.

    Just a little update for this kill grinding solution once you have killed the 1st wave on enemies on the upper level, once you jump down the ladder to go into the warehouse section hold your AI partner so he doesnt steal any of your kills. After killing the 2 easy shotgun heavies, what i done was to take cover behind the forklift truck and you can see them keep spawning through the big shutter door infront of the forklift truck.
