Were it so easy...

What are your successful tactics for getting enough points to get the FF bonus lives?

In general, an automag (or cov carbine) and fuel rod are often the best weapons choice for bonus rounds. The following apply to solo game play, but would also work for coop.

Chasm - Wait just inside the doorway on the left side of the upper walkway. Wait till the grunts round the far corner and you can see 3+ grunts in a row. Continual headshot to keep the string going. If it gets too hectic, use the fuel rod to thin things out. It's fairly easy to get bonus lives.

Crater - Make your way onto the street at the far end of the map. A doorway will open just beyond and to the left of the steps, with 4 grunts coming once the bonus round begins. Take them out quickly. The remainder of the bonus round grunts climb the stairs and line up nicely for kill chains.

Lost Platoon - I've made as much as 37,000 points on a single bonus round. Out on the field from where the Hog spawns, turn right and step just behind the corner of the building. Wait till the Phantom arrives on the field, and take out the door gunner with a couple fuel rod blasts, then automag kill chains from that point on. Slowly back away from the Phantom as you shoot/reload to keep out of range from the grenade throwing grunts.

Alpha Site - I've had limited success with a hammer, just getting crazy in the center of where the grunts drop. It seems the hammer keeps grunt grenade blast damage to yourself to a minimum if you're swinging a lot. If a hammer isn't your thing, go for head shots from a distance from one of the upper outside levels (where Phantoms drop enemies).

I haven't had a lot of success on the other maps...

the only problem i have with mine is that it's unstable,[very shakey],so you'd need a tripod for it.

Just drink a beer and everything will be ok

On Alpha Site, save some rockets for the bonus round. Then, the grunts will jump out of holes in the walls. Shoot rockets into those holes. You will get lots of points.

Black Ops 2 I run two accounts warmup only at 1.97kdr...real is at 3.77. i'm in master division 4 league play. pm 4 clan inv...must have 2.5 kdr or better

Honestly, save Rockets and Fuel Rod Gun then spam at their spawns...not a hard concept. Bonus rounds are the easiest.

Get some respect man ... you can NEVER use reach as if it was meant to be a game worthy of comparison.
