Bonus Challenge
  • TIP: Preperation is the key in this one.
Do 20 attacks in 20 minutes. Thanks to GunGrave for these 3 guides:

1. FHC method

This method is best for those looking to get the honor with the almost no risk of ODing or getting a kick.

Cost: Roughly $25,990,000
What You Need:
– Full Energy Bar
– 50 points for 2 refills
– Donator status

– Vicodin – 20 low levels(preferably inactives)

The trick is to start at around 11:50PM TC.
– You take the vicodin and make 6 attacks(with a full Energy Bar)
– Use a refill before midnight and make six more attacks(you’ve now done 12 attacks)
– The refills reset at 12:04AM, so once it passes this mark go ahead and refill.
– Now make another 6 attacks(now 18 attacks)
– Finally, use the FHC to refill your energy once again and make the last two attacks

2. Xanax+Refill

This method for getting the honor is the least risky method when it comes to stacking xanax for getting Master of one.

Cost: Roughly $3,525,000.
What You Need:
– Donator Status
– Full Energy Bar
– Vicodin
– 2 Xanax
– 1 refills
– 20 Low Levels(optional)

How to do this:
– Take a vicodin and wait till the last 10 minutes of its effects before you start.
– Do 3 attacks with a full 150 energy bar(6 hits so far)
– Use a Refill and do 3 more hits(12 hits so far)
– After the vicodin effect wears off take 2 xanax and do 8 more hits to reach 20 hits.

3. Xanax Stacking

This is the simplest but risky method for completing the challenge although its the best method all around especially for non donators.

Cost: roughly $3,320,000 or more if you OD
What You Need:
– 4 Xanax
– 20 Low Levels(optional)
– A few million in case you OD(likely to happen)

Preferably do this on an empty energy bar since the 4 xanax will give you enough to do the 20 attacks needed to get the honor . Anyways pop the 4 xanax and hope you don’t OD so you can do the 20 hits should take you 5 minutes or less.
