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.
the only good seal is a dead seal...

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?

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.

My Sealhunter Tactic!!!
« Reply #49 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...

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

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)
