      Damn, didn’t know they were that cheap! Thought they would be more considering it’s an import.

        It is, he’s full of it. He’s referring to the 556, which is a really, really bad quality civilian model. Look it up. 550 series vs 556 They are different in many ways, but mostly material and build quality.

          Just do the subway level with the bomb over and over. When you get to the bomb, just hit the wrong sequence of buttons on the controller so it explodes. The game ends and you will see that you have killed everyone in the subway from the bomb detonating. After you get quick at it, you will be able to make an easy 5000 pts in under a minute. Re-load the same game and repeat the process. I averaged 80,000-100,000 pts/hour.

          This is better than playing scenario after scenario for 30 minutes each only to make 8000 pts.

      That’s the mission where I racked up a lot of my points. Plus, like you said, it helps keep your helicopter skills fresh. I still have issues with the low-flying/low-level rocket attack tactic (I end up crashing at some point during my run. Either that or jets get me).

    you know one of these days there will be almost nobody playing co-op. so new players who buy the game late or guys like me who play the multiplayer a lot won’t be able to unlock these weapons

    @ Alpha: You did read the posts above yours, right? You unlock the SG553 in COOP and then it become available in MP.
