Event start
Sniper Specialist Hawkspar: Maybe the commander here can show you how it's done. What do you say?
Sniper Specialist Hawkspar: Hop on a platform. Once you're airborne, grab a rifle and fire away!
Sniper Specialist Hawkspar: Clear the loading zone! Platforms are out!
On hitting a target
Sniper Specialist Hawkspar: Watch and learn, cubs! That's how you shoot targets!
Sniper Specialist Hawkspar: Great shot! Good form! You all paying attention?
Event success
Sniper Specialist Hawkspar: And that's how it's done! If you want to shoot like the commander...train harder!
Event fail
Sniper Specialist Hawkspar: know what? On second thought, true mastery cannot be demonstrated. It can only be learned!


Hotshot achievement
  • Event will spawn 10 minutes after the end of the previous one.
  • Be careful that you don't fall off the platform, as it will likely mean your death.
  • The Ballooning Targets achievement can be difficult to earn due to the fact that targets you still need to shoot are not distinguishable from the ones you have already hit. If you've run into difficulties, try focusing on destroying distant targets as well as targets that float beneath the level of your platform.
  • For the Hotshot achievement patience is key. Only shoot at close-by targets that are right ahead in the direction the platform is taking you. The most reliable is to shoot only when you're on the part of the route marked with green.
