12 Turns to demo 2 cars- ending in a nice "whatever" comment from the AI!
If you can beat this- put it up!
just a bit of fun for a challenge and a laugh!
Much Love,
Brun

Does it count if I lose in under 12 turns? I can always yell Whatever! at the end.

I famously lost 2 legendary buzzers in 8 turns to a fire engine ambush several years ago.

I did not yell whatever

If it hasn't been done already, I think this should be turned into a drunken tale for the bars of Evan and the gazette ;)

I had a 3 vs 3 scout which I won in 7 turns once. But the AI was clearly at a disadvantage when they spawned facing away from me at very close range and had a Chaser and 2 Trader Vans vs my 3 Twin HMG Mercs.

9 turns to demo two cars using mmg/hmg and cgl.

S794949
Loaded For Bear -vs- Dune Peddlers

can probably do it faster with car cannons but then I don't get any loot worth driving back.

Over a month and no movement - so, is 6 turns the minimum possible?

It all depends on what you consider the fastest scout. I once forgot to include gunners in a scout and so I escaped at 350m in 5 turns.

But it would be conceivable, under perfect conditions, pulling 2 cars and taking them both out in 4 turns. Turn 1 target first car, turn 2 fire and demo 1, turn 3 target second car, turn 4 fire and demo.

Scenario is possible but would be extremely rare for all those planets to align. You would need to face 2 weak chassis types and get a very close spawn. You need a vehicle with heavy weapons and you most likely would need gangers with rapid shot. But if you have all of the above, give it a shot.

I recently beat my personal best and did it in 6 turns- 2 firing turns with a twin CC BPU on the NFL map where they spawn right in front of you- they were a Pho and Estate trader

I know I've done something very similar, 7 turns for sure, maybe 5 or 6. Think the BPU had CC/RL or CC/HMG though. 1 BPU for me and 2 cars for enemy, with a spawn that meant I could start hitting both cars on turn 2.

there is a spawn on shanty gates where they appear over 350m away from you.. you can escape that in a single turn

but i think the point was to win it

I would agree - though not explicitly stated I would think only successful scouts should count - or surrendering all on turn one would win!

That is true. And there is a spawn at Morgan gates that is the same way. But getting your vehicle back home safe is winning in most players eyes lol. And Dirk did say fastest scout  :rolleyes:
