Max Payne 3 - Weekly Arcade Challenge

Welcome to the Max Payne 3 Arcade challenge - Week #1

 

Each week we’ll set a chapter for you to take on via the ‘Arcade’ mode in Max Payne 3.  The highest score wins – simples :) You can have as many goes as you like to try and improve your score.

 

The chapters available in this mode are unlocked as you complete them in the single player campaign. As people may not have finished the game so far (like me!) we’ll start the first couple of weeks on the early levels.

 

There is a Crew leaderboard which is handy and we can check the results in there.

 

All you need to do is load up Max Payne 3 and pop into the arcade mode.  Select SCORE ATTACK and the relevant Chapter.  This week we’ll start on CHAPTER I. 

 

Select ‘VS CREW’ on the leaderboard settings to see what you’re up against. Select ‘FREE AIM’ for the targeting then start shooting some bad guys!

 

You have until Sunday 27th May to get your scores in.  We’ll then select a new chapter on Monday for you to try.  If you’re not in the OPC crew, fear not, just post a pic in this thread of your score.

 

If you'd like to join the OPC crew, click here…

Good luck everyone :) (this is purely for fun & bragging rights - no prizes)

my mistake, yes your score is still the same, but you are neither on top, nor are you sitting pretty.

Pah.

 

If you were to go through the whole level not missing one shot I'm sure you could hit 20k. Alas I'm not used to free aim enough.

 

Will give level 2 a try shortly!

Thats from my 2nd try :D had some lucky bits, its a tricky 1 this 1.

very easy for 1 of the micro uzi bullets to miss the target and ruin your hitstreak and I'm still trying to get the hang of the rifle with laser on.

Monday's challenge will be Chapter 3 - just decided to go through then in order really for the moment.

 

Still got until Sunday to get scores in for this weeks (Chapter 2) - I need to have another go at this to try and improve my current standing!
