Some may claim that earning such a rank is just out of reach. In many ways I agree, the requirements that RARE have demanded are absolutely insane. If you played fairly and played multiplayer match after multiplayer match, it would take years for you to earn this rank. Well, that's where I come in, for I know all the methods you need to help you "cheat" your way to the top rank. As you are reading this, you may be thinking that there is already a guide for you to earn Perfect:1 rank. This is true, but the other FAQ is out of date and does not provide the most efficient ways for completing such a feat. Now enough talking, on with the FAQ. (B)Combat Rankings: In order to become perfect, you must go through several ranks to achieve your goal. The rankings will be listed from lowest to highest. 21: Beginner 20: Trainee 19: Amateur 18: Rookie 17: Novice 16: Trooper 15: Agent 14: Star Agent 13: Special Agent 12: Expert 11: Veteran 10: Professional 9: Dangerous 8: Deadly 7: Killer 6: Assassin 5: Lethal 4: Elite 3: Invincible 2: Near Perfect 1: PERFECT (C)Requirements: Kills: 18,000 Damage Dealt: 180,000 (180K) Ammunition Used: 450,000 (450K) Distance: 9000km Time: 12:12:00 (12 days) Games Won: 900 Accuracy Medals: 900 Headshot Medals: 900 KillMaster Medals: 900 Survivor Medals: 900 As you can see this will be no easy task. Once you reach all those requirements you will given the rank Perfect:1. Going over these numbers will not alter your rank in a negative way. (D)Methods The following tricks will help you "cheat" your way to the perfect rank. These methods are efficient and will take much less time than if you were to attempt these requirements fairly. To Gain Kills and Damage Dealt: Okay, this is a really cool glitch. First you need to set up a game of capture the briefcase in the Felicity. Then you need to add 8 simulants to the match and make them on your team. Select remote mines as your weapon. And of course be sure to load up you custom player before you begin! If you and your team spawn in the room right before the bathroom, that's great. If not, keep restarting the game until you do. Now, you must hold A and click Z. You will now have many options which you can command to your sims. Choose "protect" and wait until they have all entered the room where the match began. Wait patiently until all 8 sims arrive. Now, place a remote mine on one of the guards and stand near the exit. Take a couple of steps back out of the room and detonate. All 8 sims should have died in the explosion. The beauty of this is that the explosion you just set of is infinite. I can be pretty boring to watch you rack up the kills, so leave the game running and you should easily be able to get the require 18,000. To Gain Distance and Time: This next trick is not as complex as the last. Before you start go to options and turn on fast movement so you can cover more ground. Begin the match alone and hold L and R, push the control stick to the left and push start. You just set your N64 controller to it's neutral position. Your custom character should start spinning in circles. Leave your game running and the game will cover the distance for you. Simple. To Earn Medals: There is no trick to this one. In fact, it is quite boring. Begin a match with 2 players however have no one control the second player. Make sure you set the weapon to the farsight. While in the match hold B, to set the gun to it's secondary function. Wait until the gun has found player two and aim for the head. Quickly exit. You should have gotten 4 medals for your efforts. Take about easy. Unfortunately you will have to repeat this process 899 more times! :) To Increase Ammo Used: Okay, this next trick isn't mine so please thank DetErest@detstar.com for the help. "Auto controller: Allows you to set a button to 'Auto', and have it repeat when held, such as the SharkPad by InterAct." "I just play in the Felicity with Cyclones. I shoot four ammo crates from the nearby hall, into the room to the right of the bathroom stairs. Once in the room, I shoot the boxes against the wall. I then set the controller's neutral position off center with L & R & Start, and leave it go, so my character runs around in endless circles. I then use an auto controller (SharkPad, MakoPad), set the double Cyclone's function on magazine discharge, set the Z Button to auto, and set down the controller so the Z button stays being held, and head off." Auto controller: Allows you to set a button to 'Auto', and have it repeat when held, such as the SharkPad by InterAct. Shooting each bullet to achieve 450,000 can be a huge pain. But if you have an auto controller you can achieve this in a matter of weeks as opposed to years.
