Unlocking the R1 Shadowhunter – Tips and Bundle
The R1 Shadowhunter’s in-game unlock challenge is as follows:
Using a weapon with no attachments, get 3 One Shot, One Kill medals in 15 different matches.
A challenge that ties into the R1 Shadowhunter’s minimalistic design, Operators will need to adjust their loadouts accordingly to knock out this challenge effectively. Here are our tips for doing just that:
5. Snipers and Shotguns
For this challenge, we used the following loadout in Core game modes:
Primary Weapon: LW3 – Tundra
Secondary Weapon: Hauer 77
Perk 1: Paranoia, Forward Intel
Perk 2: Scavenger, Tracker
Perk 3: Gung-Ho, Ghost
Equipment: Any Lethal Equipment, Stun Grenade
Field Upgrade: Field Mic
Wildcard: Perk Greed
Sniper Rifles and shotguns are the only two weapon categories that can get One Shot, One Kill medals in Core Game Modes, and the two we’ve chosen here are the ones with the best damage profiles for one-shot eliminations.
The LW3 – Tundra is lethal to the head, upper chest, and shoulders, while the Hauer 77 can blast enemies away with a single shell in close quarters. Play a game of extremes with these two weapons, aiming down long corridors or in open fields with the LW3 – Tundra before ducking into buildings to clear them out with your pump-action shotgun.
With no attachments allowed in this challenge, we recommend using Perk Greed to double up on powerful passive abilities across the board. This includes Tactical Mask for avoiding the effects of Flash and Stun Grenades along with gas, Tracker to help hunt down enemies, and Gung-Ho for a host of movement-based benefits, such as faster weapon swap speed and full movement speed while reloading.
Your choice of Lethal Equipment is up to you, as they won‘t help with this challenge, but your Tactical Equipment should be something that disorients for easier eliminations. We chose the Stun here to daze and slow enemies, allowing us to line up that lethal shot.
Last, but not least, your Field Upgrade should be one that cannot damage an enemy player, such as the Field Mic, which grants intel on nearby enemy movements within its radius.
