I’m not claiming this challenge is easy. I fully recognise it is hard for the average Vermintide player. This is the kind of challenge you need to do in a planned and targeted way, instead of completing it accidentally / eventually by simply playing quickplays like you normally would. Reserving your gun when you decide to try and do this challenge is perfectly reasonable. The danger of missing the monster makes this challenge a challenge. I think the number of 30 shots is just right: hard but reasonable, and realistic considering your ammo count. That you need a team with a plan or enough raw player skill to solo legend with bots to earn a red illusion seems perfectly reasonable to me.
I think it’s a good thing to have these harder challenges in the game, since if they were all non-challenges that you couldn’t avoid completing if you tried the “challenges” wouldn’t mean anything.
I think it’s fair that there are some challenges that will only get completed by long time / top tier players. I’m probably in the upper single digit percentages of Vermintide players in terms of hours played and maybe also in player skill, and I sure don’t have all the challenges in this game. And that’s not a bad thing, because if anybody could easily do all the challenges, completing a hard one wouldn’t mean anything.
If this challenge was needed to unlock anything that effected gameplay, I’d agree that it was too hard. But it only unlocks a cosmetic.
“But it’s part of a DLC I paid money for.” Well, you paid money for the game as well, but you don’t get all other cosmetics for free either. And there’s plenty other cosmetics in the DLC that are unlocked with super easy “challenges” as well.
I mean no offense either, but I think we’re just on a different page about what we think a “challenge” in this game should be.
