Firecrackers are a problem. Sometimes it seems like the system just refuses to count some of those kills.
I believe that the 3rd level of the 9 kill streak challenge is 75.
I'm down to 2 challenges -- 20 more 5 incognito kills in wanted and 36 more SD in corruption. I would have already gotten that last one if they had just made it surviving the round. I'm getting those 3 or 4 times as often as sudden death. These two challenges were really badly chosen -- the numbers should have been cut in half (or further).

67. Got the Artful a few games after you left, Collinwood.
3 Gun - Huntsman - 21/30
9 Streak - Omnipotent - 6/10 lvl 2
7 Streak DM - Conquerer - 1/30
5 Streak W - Competitor - 63/75
5 Incog W - Stealth Master - 35/75
3 Prox StA - Audacious - 17/50
Survive SD Corr - Escapist - 4/30
Once I get the Competitor, I'm bringing the 9 streak and a pure defensive set to Wanted. My goal when I play Wanted is to get 25 incognito kills and then move on to a different mode.
It was cool runnin into you yesterday Pillsy. Anyway, I never tried for the 9 streak in anything other than DM and almost got two of them in one session a couple of times. I dont know but I think you might be better off trying to get them in DM. I went with smoke/ mute/ kill buffer/ 9 streak and played defensively. It wasnt bad once you got into the flow of it. If I remember right, the 9 streak is for sloppy kills so they dont have to be silent or incog.
Pillsy, you are more ambitious than I am. Normally, by the time I get 10 incognitos the BS contract system has me too mad to continue.
Still I am up to 65/75 and may finish that one this week. Survive SD is still at 4/10 on level 2. I really wish they would count rounds were you survive but they never go to SD -- I get about 4 times as many of those.
Today saw the greatest Ubisoft moment yet. Playing wanted in Souk, I got a hidden incognito poison kill on a player and was stunned just after (it took 3 tries for the poison to go off). Before he died, I was assigned as his target and he killed me. I did get a revenge bonus out of it, but the entire sequence was pure BS. They really need to give poison the same kill range as a normal kill -- the short one is too vulnerable to lag. You need to get closer to your target to use poison. If I was any closer I'd be in back of you.
I got The Competitor tonight... twice.
The first time, I'd also gotten to 40/75 on the Incognito challenge. Game ends... and the server can't be reached. I was fuming. By the time I'd gotten back into a lobby I was happy with, and got the now 5 more incognito kills I needed, it was 45 minutes later. First lobby, I join the game with 5:30 left in Antioch, and my target is running on roofs THE WHOLE TIME. Finally, a minute later, I kill an NPC. Guess what my next target was doing?
So, 6 left. I think what I'm going to do is vary the game modes a bit. It's essentially Escort (for Huntsman and 9 streak), Wanted, Corruption, DM and StA. I'm probably going to finish the gun and get as far as I can in the 9 streak in Escort, then go back for 25 more incognito kills, then go to Corruption or StA and get those up a bit, then back to Wanted, etc.
I already got to 5/30 on the 7 silient in DM. I *almost* double streaked in a game; if I'd dropped my smoke when I should have...
Escort isn't really the best mode for 9 streak (you only have 5 minutes), but it might work against agressive and stupid attackers if your teammates aren't killing too many.
It looks like the rules for 5 incognito kills in wanted has been changed to require 6 -- I have been tracking them after the end of each match to try and minimize losses and it keeps taking 6 kills to get the first increase of the day (and usually the last -- between runners and the ridiculous assignments it takes forever to get 5 incognitos). 7 more and I'm done.
I am stuck on 4 of 10 survive suddent death in corruption. I survived the entire round twice yesterday without seeing sudden death -- on one the other 2 survivors had 1m and 38s respectively). They really need to fix the rules so that anyone entering with 2 minutes gone in a round or only 2 survivors left comes in as infected. It's painful to hear there are 2 people left, then moments later that there are 3. This one will take forever.
Surely the easiest way to get the 9-kill streak done is play Artifact Assault? Never stray out of your zone, and just kill anyone who crosses the line. If you are in a lobby which is not full of prestiges, then more often than not you will get plenty of opportunities as lower ranked players tend not to sit on the flag all game and bore everyone to death, but actually try to get the opposition's flag.
When I was finishing that challenge off I had one game where I decided to sit and kill....zzzz....in the entire 10 minutes, ONE opponent ventured over the line and I got 50 points for locking him before he was shot. That was it...10 minutes and 50 points. The winner got 950. Personally I hate the game, but it has to be the safest option for the 9-streak challenge.
