Title: Sealhunter Tactics!
Post by: Oskar on April 17, 2009, 04:43:35 PM
In this thread you can post all of your tactics you use to finish the game! Which one scores the most? Both 1 and 2 player..

So basically you can share with the rest of us which weapons you use, and when.... ;D

Thanks to Gifflo for the Idea  ;)

This are the tactics that I've completed the game in 2 player mode:

The Colt(m4a1) / minigun tactic (medium)
Player 1: revolver(500$) - Minigun(12'500$)
Player 2: revolver(500$) - M4A1(6000$)

The Colt(m4a1) / Sniper tactic (easy)
Player 1: revolver(500$) - M4A1(6000$) - AWP(7500$)
Player 2: revolver(500$) - M4A1(6000$) - AWP(7500$)

The Seal hunter game tactic (Medium)
Player 1: revolver(500$) - Grenade Launcher(5000$) - Minigun(12500$)
Player 2: Grenade(1500$) - AWP(7500$)

The beginners tactic (easy)
Player 1: MP5(1000$) - M4A1(6000$) - AWP(7500$)
Player 2: Revolver(500$) - M4A1(6000$) - Minigun(12500$)

The Hardcore tactic (nightmare) - haven't completed this tactic yet  ::)
Player 1: Revolver(500$) - M4A1(6000$)
Player 2: Revolver(500$) - M4A1(6000$)

I might have missed some tactics but that's the main tactics we've been playing with :)

One of the more hardcore and funnier tactics I've tried out is the following. (Since Luskan pretty much mentioned most of the tactics that works, I spontaneously couldn't come up with anything much better than the following)

Radical Shit (Yes, that's the name of it)
Player 1: Grenade launcher (5000$) - Mainly whatever, Suggestable is the Minigun (12500$)
Player 2: Revolver / MP5 (500$/1000$) - M4A1 (6000$) - Vintage Shotgun (10000$)

This tactic is based on that you balance up the cash before the penguins arrive. Doing all the Penguins with the Pistol and Revolver / MP5 might be kinda hard. And ofc this tactic is bendable in many ways, but this is the base of it to begin with.
And thx Oskar for the thread ;)!

Thanks for the thought! Seeing as discussing tactics seemed to be a hot topic, I decided to open up a dedicated forum section for this. Feel free to create topics for every single weird strategy you might think of without fretting!

Nice tactics, and I agree that part of the charm of the game is to find weird combos that work out.

In single player, my patented Hand Grenades ($1500) to Vintage Shotgun ($10000) has so far yielded a high score of 221878 and I challenge anyone to beat that with any other tech.

Hand Grenades ($1500) -> M4A1 ($6000) -> Minigun ($12500) is also Single Player classic that makes level 5 and the walrus a cakewalk (although you have to kill the turtle with grenades). I think this is the easiest 1p tech, right guys?

Shotgun ($2500) -> Minigun ($12500) is doable (hard coded to be doable, actually ;)) but very difficult in 1p.

In 2 player mode, just about any tech is possible. Asker and Glufse have beaten the game using double Magnum ($500) -> Minigun ($12500), for example (proving how overpowered the magnum really is)

The real "nightmare-mode" for 2p would probably be:
Player 1: Magnum -> Sniper rifle
Player 2: MP5
I believe this would be possible with player 2 only hunting penguins and activists starting on level 4 and player 1 one-shotting all the fatties. I'll have to try it with asker the next time we see each other.

Nice Rashban ;)! Seems like some awesome tactics you've got there, eventho I've already tried most of them, The one below would probably be some great fun!
Player 1: Magnum -> Sniper rifle     
Player 2: MP5

Not to forget the Magnum ($500) -> Minigun ($12500), but is this really doable? I've done the

Player 1: Magnum ($500) -> Minigun ($12500)
Player 2: Magnum ($500) -> M4A1  ($6000) -> Minigun ($12500)

But is it really doable to do it without the M4A1? Just going both straight on the 12,5? Seems like a fun tactic tho, gonna try it out real soon.

I dont know if that is doable, my dear friend.
It would be really a challenge to kill the polar bears if both players use the Magnum. But we will give it a try, for sure  ;D

Post by: rashban on April 20, 2009, 01:11:53 PM
Dual Magnum to dual Minigun is possible but the polar bears are impossible with dual magnums AFAIK. You figure out the rest ;)

Finishing the game with sniper rifle + MP5 hasn't been done but I think it would be possible since there aren't that many polar bears, and the only real danger is diving penguins.
Title: Re: Sealhunter Tactics!
Post by: Gifflo on April 20, 2009, 06:20:13 PM
Yeah, It seems doable, but damn that would be hard. However, we will definitely give it a shot.
And please excuse my noobishness, but what does AFAIK mean?

Me and Oskar just made up a new tactic named The Insta-Swarm

Player 1: revolver(500$) - Vintage Shotgun(10000$)
Player 2: revolver(500$) - Sniper(7500$)

However, we managed to complete it while Player 1 bough mp5(1000$) instead of revolver but i should definitely be possible with the revolver. The result was disappointingly just about 350'000 score  :-\

Regarding low scores from low-tech weapons: you don't get many gibs with magnum dual magnum, and you probably don't keep the enemies far enough to the left. The loss of the early-game score due to these factors probably contributes to lower scores. It would probably score higher to go:
Player 1: Shotgun -> Vintage shotgun
Player 2: Grenades -> Sniper rifle, or maybe Magnum -> Grenade Launcher

early-game = lvl 1 & 2 ?

Got our highest score (396000) from:
Player 1: revolver -> minigun
Player 2: revolver -> M4A1

We've tried many different tactics including grenades in early-game but it never results in good score.

Post by: smitaah on April 21, 2009, 08:43:50 AM
Me and Gurra usuly goes

MP5--> Sniper
MP5--> Minigun

itīs easy and you donīt need to spend the money on a M4A1.

maybe itīs better to go revolvers, we havenīt used them a lot.
Title: Re: Sealhunter Tactics!
Post by: callans on April 21, 2009, 11:31:59 AM
Another tactic me and Smittahh have used is having the same weapons but boosting one of us to Minigun.

What we do is we simple both get MP5 so we can do somewhat dmg. Then one of us take over and kill EVERYTHING! with this the one being boost gets Minigun before the polarbears come while the other one will have MP5 and not much more. Its kinda of a hardcore tactic we discovered it when just having fun. I started a 2p game and started killing but smittah didnt join in until lvl 2 and we just went with it... failing on the walrus by about 2-3 minigun rounds =/.

And ofc when one gets the Minigun the other one starts killing^^ Smittah had enough money for the Sniper in the end.

Another one is a lot simpler but very... goory:
MP5 ->Minigun -> Sniper
MP5 -> Sniper -> Minigun
= Carnage ;)
Title: Re: Sealhunter Tactics!
Post by: Luskan on April 21, 2009, 04:50:47 PM

MP5 ->Minigun -> Sniper

How much did you score with that tactic?  :)
Title: Re: Sealhunter Tactics!
Post by: callans on April 21, 2009, 09:21:21 PM
I dont have a clue really, we never played much for score just for the... well carnage really =). Dont know on which/whos computer either so cant really check

Post by: Gifflo on April 21, 2009, 10:03:44 PM
Going back to an older discussion in this topic, I am still going nuts on the dual Revolver -> MG tactic, Me and NP tried it out today, and it appears to be one very hardcore tactic. As it is today, the Polar Bear bosses at lvl 3, is impossible with dual magnum. This then means ofcourse means that one of the players MUST have the MG (Yeah, MG = Minigun) before the team reaches the end of lvl 3. Me and NP sat down and thought for a few minutes before testing the tactic out for real, if it even was possible. Our very fast and sloppy conclusion that the overall cash the team will be able to get is approx 16-17 k before lvl 3. This ofcourse brings in all the elements of our other topic, the one about the scoring system and cash system, into the problem. But we decided to stop our research after the 4 minutes we spent in class, painting it up in our notebooks, if someone is ready to take this issue very far, please bring in all the facts and equations from the other topic and enlighten us!

Anyhow, our very fast done research proved to be pretty applyable to the tactic.

This means: Overall budget, 16-17 k.
- 1 k for the 2 revolvers.
That leaves 15-16 k. Thinking of that player 1 or 2 will have to cash in atleast 12,5 k of these, makes this a damn hard tactic since player 2 can't really backup player 1 in addition to make this tactic work. However, if someone is really in need of a challenge, try this shit out! Promise you that it will lead to some quite intense and interesting situations. (And btw, so far me and the NP managed to in a few tries get 11,5 k at maximum when the bosses arrived, we're definitely continuing our journey to fulfill this legendary tactic, until then, GL and HF with this! )

(After that i wrote this post I noticed that there was no real point with it, but enjoy reading! Since it was such a fat post i couldn't bare erasing it all)

Pardon.

Very interesting tactic!
Will definitely try it with Oskar or Franx. Me and Franx managed to do the The Colt(m4a1) / minigun tactic (see my first post in the thread). But then Franx bought MG on early level 4 and I bough the Colt on level 3. Franx usually haves around 10k at the polar bears.

Not trying to bring you down or anything ^^, but the
Player 1: Revolver -> MG
Player 2: Revolver -> Colt -> MG
Is really a cakewalk compared to this one ^^, Me and the NP does that one for warmups and stuff sometimes, so it's not really a challenge at all anymore tbh.
This new one is quite much heavier. And just to prove that this tactic (Dual Revolver -> MG) actually is possible (Which we already knew before, but now it's been practically proven) I got a screenshot from today when I and the NP killed the polarbears ;). If there's any interest at all, I could post it here, but I'll give it a rest until when that time comes. (If it ever does, that is)

Not that I don't believe you, I just like pictures  ;D

Regarding the shotgun -> Minigun tactic in 1 player;
I don't understand how it would be possible to kill the polar bear. Anyone who have made it past level 3?

Hey, I didn't say it was easy! It's all about keeping the optimal distance from the polar bear while using the shotgun.

Me and asker had a discussion about the usefulness of certain weapons in seal hunter single player and decided that the main cutoff point for weapons is the question "can I beat the polar bear with this?".

We saw that it's impossible using pistol, magnum, MP5 and grenades, and decided that this was reasonable since you can afford all of these weapons on level 1. It is easy with M4A1 and above, and that was of course intentional since you can afford them only on level 3. That leaves the "affordable by level 2"-weapons, Shotgun, dual MAC-10s and grenade launcher.

We felt that the polar bear should be easy with grenade launcher (just shoot him!), intermediate with the MAC-10s (you need to stand at a correct distance and flee using the recoil) and possible but very very hard with the shotgun. In order to achieve this, the grenade launcher does significant bonus damage to the polar bear on direct hits, so it's virtually impossible to fail. The MAC-10s were already where we wanted them, which left the shotgun.

We solved this by giving the shotgun bonus damage (a little) to the polar bear, but especially by increasing the headshot multiplier. So, it's actually possible to kill him with 3 shotgun blasts, but most commonly he will die on the 4th shot, which tends to occur very, very close to the right edge of the screen. If you get hit by him, it's over. If you don't have a perfect setup for the polar bear (i.e. you standing to the left of the screen, all enemies dead before the bear appears), you probably can't make yourself ready for a 3-shot takedown, so you have gun for a 4-shotter. You want the 4th shot to deal most damage of all the shots (i.e. get him down to about 35% with the first 3 shots, and hit him right in the nose from point blank on shot #4). Of course, you have to use the recoil (both in X- and Y-direction!) to make sure you match his path and speed.

Good luck :)

So then, As requested, here is the picture of me and NP when we just killed the polar bears ^^. It is indeed doable. Just hard as hell until you get the MG. The reason to why its all cleared is that we accidentaly out of pure happiness happened to tab down when we wanted to save our screenshot.

^^  Yeah that was real nice that we managed to put the bears six feet under. But as everybody can see on the picture, my financial situation when level 4 started wasn't the best.  So we figured that Gifflo had to lay down some heavy covering fire if we we're going to survive the level and it worked real good until the end of the level where I had a little bit over $10 000, but unfortunaly Gifflo was overwelmed with alot of seals, penguins, big seals etc coming at him and I couldn't really help him out too much since I only had the revolver.
But now we atleast now that it is possible for one player to get $12 500 before the bears and we will be working hard to finish the game with this crazy tactic.

Nice tactics, and I agree that part of the charm of the game is to find weird combos that work out.

In single player, my patented Hand Grenades ($1500) to Vintage Shotgun ($10000) has so far yielded a high score of 221878 and I challenge anyone to beat that with any other tech.

Interesting though, that it is actually possible to get $10k before the polar bear with grenades and not with MP5  :o

yes, I actually tried and only got about $9k when the polar bear came  :'(

Those gib bonuses do add up.

By the way, you should have about 5-5.5k after the penguins.
Title: Re: Sealhunter Tactics!
Post by: Gifflo on April 24, 2009, 02:53:43 PM
It is (Just as the screenshot proves) possible. I made it to the polar bears once when I tried it out, but I didn't get enough cash :(, had about 9,7-9,8 k.
Title: Re: Sealhunter Tactics!
Post by: callans on May 06, 2009, 01:27:51 PM
Someone said that the revolver/minigun before the polar bears proved that it worked but there are many other tactics to get the minigun before the polarbears. I posted one before with the mp5-> minigun, easier then with the revolver ofc if your looking for the challenge.

Personally me and Schmidt are working on a new tact atm: Mac-10 -> Minigun
Its amazing fun taking down the fat seal with just the original pistols. You get the Mac-10 in good time before the penguins and then its just a spray and pray. The problem is that someone must be slightly bosted to get 12,5k before the turtles to get the MG before they come. Guess its kind of easy after you get the mac10s but its very funny and for thoose who tried know that the lvl 1 fat seal aint to easy with just pistols.

Thanks for the reading guys its keeping the wicked seal killing ideas evolving =)
Title: Re: Sealhunter Tactics!
Post by: Gifflo on May 06, 2009, 08:18:14 PM
Might've been me who posted the one about revolver -> minigun. But that one is only for the challenge, I can't seem to find a much harder tactic (Except for like, original to minigun, but that's just ridiculus), or doing lvl 5 with some really shitty weapons. Me and the NP proved that it actually is doable to go dual Revolver to Miniguns a few days ago. Or atleast we almost did, we died at the point where I, player 1, had the MG, and NP had 12395 $. In other words, we were just about 1 penguin away from the ultimate victory. The Mac 10 to MG seems like some fun shit, but a little bit too easy maybe. But if you wanna play around and just finish the game, I guess it's a really fun tactic ^^.
Title: Re: Sealhunter Tactics!
Post by: NP on May 06, 2009, 08:30:52 PM
Just as Gifflo said ^^ , we were real close to finishing the Revolver--MG. Gifflo did a real good job of covering me since I only had the revolver but a baby seal got through. If I just gotten another $100 there we would have finished the game easily since lvl 5 is a walk in the park if you both have miniguns. We're not far away now and we should be able to complete the game with that tactic soon.

Post by: Rich on May 10, 2009, 06:32:44 AM
I combo I use which I don't think has been used yet but it works well for me in Singleplayer is..
We'd use much the same approach in Two player.

Magnum>Dual Mach10s>Vintage Shotgun.

Haha, I came from a school of about 1000 and literally everyone who had a laptop was playing seal hunter, we'd break it down to an art form. :'D
Title: Re: Sealhunter Tactics!
Post by: callans on May 14, 2009, 03:13:46 PM
So me and Schimdt are at it again... Instead of the Mac10 > Minigun we decided Mac10 > Vintage would be more fun and by god it is =D we cant stop laughing while we play. But it dosent provide much score tho... we completed it with 300k. I guess the low score is due to whole lvl 1 and almost whole lvl 2 only being done with stock pistols. But still its hilarious give it a try

Double post merged June 03, 2009, 09:11:38 PM
My tactic!
Called (!! the F***ING n00b who haven't reach the level 5 !!)

Single player:
Grenades - Grenade Launcher - Sniper / Vintage Shotgun

Two player:
Player 1: Grenades - Grenade Launcher / Sniper - Vintage Shotgun / nothing
Player 2: Revolver / first rifle - UZI - Sniper / Minigun
Title: Re: Sealhunter Tactics!
Post by: Nevik on October 03, 2009, 11:13:52 AM
The one that I usually go for:

Player 1: Magnum (500$) - Grenade Launcher (5000$) - Minigun (12500$)
Player 2:Magnum (500$) - Uzi (3500$) - Vintage (10000$)

Got first win with this one ;D:

Player 1: Grenade (1500$) - Grenade Launcher (5000$) - Minigun (12500$)
Player 2: Mp5 (1000$) - Colt (6000$) - Vintage (10000$)

Oh and yea this one is a whole lot of fun:

Player 1: Grenade (1500$) - Vintage (10000$)
Player 2:Magnum (500$) - Uzi (3500$) - Vintage (10000$)


They are obviously not as hard as most other tactics around here, but we finished it for the first time for like 2 weeks ago, so we will get there.

Hai Ho sealhunters. Gifflo's back in black, bad to the bone. It's horribly sad that the forums seems to be lacking life. I haven't posted any comments for a long time, but I sincerely hope that we could bring a change to that from now and on. Seal Hunter 2 is on the final steps. Let's get active in order to pwn the beta. Warm up your magnums. Let's mess up some seals.

(And we still haven't completed the multiplayer Magnum (500) - Minigun (12500) yet, But we're damn close)
Title: Re: Sealhunter Tactics!
Post by: Dr_Beanie on December 01, 2009, 01:13:15 AM
Here are a few of combinations that TheGopper and I have finished the original Seal Hunter v1.2 with:

Player 1: Magnum($500) -> Minigun($12500)
Player 2: Magnum($500)
Yes, Player 2 sticks with Magnum for the whole game

Player 1: Magnum($500) -> Minigun ($12500)
Player 2: MP5($1000)

I can't remember which one, but with one of the above two combinations, we ended the game with abouut $38000-40000 between us. I think one of those got us our highscore of 490000+ or thereabouts but I can't remember now :-\

Player 1: Magnum($500) -> Colt($6000)
Player 2: Magnum($500) -> Colt($6000)
Colt makes such a nice sound when it fires  :) The hardest part of this combination is pushing back the turtles. But as long you stay in its L.O.S you'll be alll good

Player 1: Magnum ($500) -> M79($5000) -> Minigun($12500)
Player 2: Magnum ($500) -> M79($5000) -> Minigun($12500)
This is pretty much a guaranteed win

Player 1: Magnum($500) -> AWP($7500)
Player 2: Magnum($500) -> AWP($7500)
Double snipes is pretty fun

And many more combinations.

Pretty sure we've tried every possible combination. Some are just not possible eg two Magnums for the whole game (how would you get past level 3 boss...)
Title: Re: Sealhunter Tactics!

Player 1: MP5($1000)
Player 2: MP5($1000)

would be interesting... :)

I think TheGopper and I tried that, but we could never get past level 3 boss I don't think...

As gifflo said, magnum --> minigun + magnum --> minigun is possible. Dr_Beanie and I have done it - i think we might've gotten a 420,000 or so from it, but don't quote me on that. But we've also done the magnum --> minigun + magnum (staying as magnum the whole game). The magnum player just needs to make really good headshots and slow down the waves - kill the activists and kill the penguins, and the minigun seems to be able to kill everything else as they move up and down to kill the big stuff like fat seals and polar bears.
And some good dodging against the walrus is needed too - the magnum player needs to try to lure the walrus away from the minigun player if they can, by shooting the walrus.

TheGopper + Dr_Beanie, it would seem that you are the most skilled players of The Seal Hunter 1.2 that I've ever heard of! Congratulations!

Me and asker have indeed tried to make the magnum (and MP5) viable throughout the game, if you're just skilled enough. The magnum damage actually increases over the levels, to make sure that it always kills an activist on a headshot, as well as a penguin. From our experience, activists + penguins + seal cubs cause about 75% or more of losses throughout the game.

The turtles were initially designed to be just about unbeatable with dual M4A1 due to the their annoying, cowardly behavior but we kinda loosened them up before release to allow more techs to be viable. Magnum to dual M4A1 should give pretty decent highscores, no?

Post by: thegopper on December 04, 2009, 02:08:17 AM
Thanks :)

For some odd reason I don't think we were getting huge scores with dual magnum --> M4A1. I remember we found it odd that dual magnum --> minigun and also magnum --> colt + magnum --> minigun gave higher scores. I was watching a video that Dr_Beanie and I recorded of double colt, but that had a score of 335,000 - we were one shot off from killing the walrus and we had killed most things early except polar bears.

People, what about
1) 500-5000-12500
2) 2500-10000  ?
Title: My Sealhunter Tactic!!!
Post by: BK1221 on May 06, 2010, 08:27:57 PM
Player 1: Grenade (or 44. magnum if you are skilled with it) | Grenade Launcher | Minigun
Player 2: MP5 (or 44. Magnum if you are skilled with it) | Assualt Rifle | Vintage Shotgun (or minigun depending if you earn that until the walrus)

The weapons outside the parentheses is in my opinion the most certain tactic,
but if you are skilled you can survive.

Me and my buddy have used this tactic for about a week,
and we have finished the game twice.
So we are not pros, but we can survive >:D

1500-5000 is wasting of $. 500-5000 much better if other player with 1000
btw. i found unreality tactic...2x2500 till the end of the game. at least, we've passed 3rd level  :D
ps. 1st player 2500 2nd 5000 will be easier, but also cool

I would absolutely love to see videos of the strategies discussed here.

Here's another strategy for single player btw:
Magnum --> Vintage

I just played it, but the damn walrus devoured me, so I didn't get a high score (doh!).
Time to give it another try now...

First buy magnum, kill the pingvins, wait for 6k, buy Colt
and go pwnage.

This is me finishing the game with the grenades (1500) - vintage (10 000) strategy.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kPxLCaC7x5s (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kPxLCaC7x5s)

Score: 217 595.
One thing I like about the vintage shotgun is that you can fire from inside the walrus. Makes the last boss a tad easier.

I haven't beaten the game in single player yet but I've gotten to the Walrus - then I forgot to use sniper rifle's recoil to dodge the Walrus. So it was my fault I didn't win, but this combo is pretty beast so might as well give it a whirl

MP5 -> AWP -> Minigun

or you could probably pull off

MP5 -> Carl Gustav -> Minigun

(I've gotten to 9000$ right before polar bear so you could rock the Gustav if you wanted)

Also I've seen a guy kill a Polar Bear with a shotgun then buying the Punt Gun he did this...

Magnum -> Shotgun -> Punt Gun (Punt Gun is unlocked at beginning of Turtle level)

That was probably me

I mostly use Shotgun -> Minigun/Punt when Im playing alone but when Im playing online I use Magnum -> Shotgun -> Punt Gun

EDIT: Note this is an old post.

Post by: aXidal on August 11, 2010, 10:49:50 AM

MP5 -> Carl Gustav -> Minigun


This tactic is very good, the game is easy all the way and you get minigun against the walrus =)
Title: Re: Sealhunter Tactics!
Post by: 2xD on September 13, 2010, 06:52:35 AM
There's also an another 3 Player strategy.

Player 1 : MP5 - M79 - Carl Gustav
Player 2 : Magnum - Shotgun - Minigun
Player 3 : MP5 - AWP

Everyone should have Land Mines. This strategy works also as 2 Player Strategy with Player 1 & 2.

The Extreme Brick Wall

Player 1: MP5 -> Dual MAC -> Carl Gustav-> Minigun
Player 2: MP5 -> Dual MAC -> Carl Gustav -> Land Mines

To do this tactic you need long experiance of the game! But when you are on it. ITS MOTHA FUKKIN HARDCORE

I guess it could be possible if you both double penetrate them:)

However it's impossible for both to go MP5 -> CG before Polar boss.

Post by: barrto on September 13, 2010, 02:49:10 PM
My old strategy that most people know me for is using

Grenades -> Minigun

its not that hard imo as grenades are easy for me to use :P but you must be playing in 3p or 4p game otherwise its a no go :) 3p might be hard on polar bears unless you can manage the cash well for your partners to have good weapons by then. grenades on penguins is really a killer, ive cleared a 4p difficulity's penguin boss with 2 grenades by myself so yea :)

being too lazy to use that technique anymore, ive picked up on

Magnum -> Shotgun -> Minigun (or u can go for Punt Gun quickly when about to lose if you havent reached teh minigun yet)

this one works really well in 1p, 2p, 3p, 4p. with some practice its really cake after a while :)

Because u probly cant do it, how about this

The "Übër n00b" tech

Player1 = Pistol -> Minigun

Player2 = Pistol -> Magnum -> Minigun


My primary in oneplayer is

Magnum -> Shotgun -> AWP

So far to teh walruz
Title: Re: Sealhunter Tactics!
Post by: player1 on June 16, 2011, 03:45:31 PM
This tactic is the best in 2 player:
Player 1:500-2500-9000
Player 2:1000-7500
When I'm playing alone I usually goes:
500-2500-12500
It works very good if u want to get high damage ;)

Hah, andre1ka93 you have sooooo many unique loadouts that it will take this whole page to explain them. Check out at least the one with pistol followed by Dual Macs.

My way is Grenades into AWP into M16 and mines. It is almost like the perfect AWP+Minigun combo.
