Well, I guess I'm one of the lucky ones.

 

After about a month and a half of playing nothing but hardcore at least 5 days a week, I finally got the Jade Nepal Lion (by FAR the hardest one to get for me) to complete all of the Hardcore treasure sets.

 

I finished the treasure sets in this order:

 

1) Marlowe's Para 9:

- I was pretty surprised to finish this one first, especially after reading through this thread.

- Where: Gold Snuff Box at Graveyard.

- How: T-Bolt kill at very low health. This made me start believing in the theory that hard-to-get/stylish kills may increase your odds at getting a rare treasure drop.

 

2) Roman's G-Mal:

- Where: Ruby Inca Vessel at Desert Village.

- How: Strike 3 medal using only the Shotty (no melee).  Not necessarily hard-to-get kills, but it's not like they're ordinary kills.

 

3) Talbot's FAL:

- Where: Chimera at Chateau.

- How: Got it the same day I finished Roman's set - nothing special about how I got it, but they did drop after the servers went down for a few hours.  It was after the recent patch came out, but before the last time the servers went down.

 

4) Eddy's AK:

- What a **bleep**.  I spent 2 weeks of playing almost everyday trying to get that last treasure.  Made me realize how obsessive I can get.

- Where: London Underground - No Intro.

- How: The game was just about to end.  I got the kill just when the scoreboard showed up.  I'd lost track of where the treasure was because another guy was chasing me after the kill, and of course, the scoreboard was in the way.  I just guessed and pressed the triangle button and B'AM, there it is.

- Interestingly, this story is somewhat similar to how another guy got the Lion Nepal.  Similar in the sense that we both got our treasures after the game ended.

- Here's the thread: http://community.us.playstation.com/t5/Multiplayer-General/Finally-got-Eddy-s-AK-by-picking-up-the-t...

 

Other Notes:

- I got most of the rare treasures on weekends. The more common treasures dropped throughout the week.

- I got the duplicates of the rare treasures by getting 2-3 medal kills.  So, go for those Hail Mary, Death From Above, etc. kills as much as you can.  It seems to help.

 

Keep at it guys!

In 1.13 they said they are making it easier to get treasures so for now I'm through with treasure hunting. Even I really don't need to since I have Sir Francis, Marco, Genghis Khan, Skelzor, and Donut Drake already. So I'm done with adventure. I also have every competitive gun except Eddy's FAL, Elena's Raffica, Marlowe's Para 9, Roman's Gmal, and Talbot's FAL. I'm missing one treasure for each so I guess I could try...

Congrats! Eddy's AK was either the first or second set that I unlocked. I never used it though until a few weeks before one of the patches buffed it. Still need that Chimera myself, but...

I'm starting to dislike playing Hardcore since I keep running into parties that love to hold each other's hands. I hope they never get the treasures they want if all they're doing is holding hands to keep their KDR sane and exclusively in that mode for treasures. >:{D

Oh and since the previous forum deleted my post, I ought to post my new finding: Sully's Fedora. Sanctuary/Hunter. Still going for those Ears. Cat Wink

This is probably old news guys, but for the record, I have TH lv. 2 and I've gotten a drop from all of the Hail Mary's I've done since I leveled it. And in different modes too (TOJ, TDM, FFA)
