    I got 69,700 on Thursday, and that was with a full car of 5 - and I was on front row, middle seat so not bad at all!

    Nice! My scores are usually terrible because I always sit in the left hand side because my brother and friend both normally sit on the right when I come and I only get good scores on the right hand side.:mad:

    I don't believe that with no stoppages. I've only ever topped 100k once!

    Thats what I wondered so we discussed it the Dragon Bar last week. Apparently, some of the targets are linked together, and if you hit them in the right combo, you get a bonus. So for example, shooting lets say 4 particular targets in one place will earn you 1,500 points instead 800.

    Also, I was informed that one gun on a particular car works better than all the others. Plus, when you pass the orange targets, turn around and keep shooting them.

    Yes, backwards shooting is a massive point earner. Back right is the ideal spot!

    To get a good score on Duel you need a few things:
    1. A good gun (with a easy trigger)
    2. All targets to be turned on and working (Some sections often don't work).
    3. No one else in your car (or even cars around you) shooting, that way you aren't fighting for targets.
    4. And a breakdown always helps :p

    Breakdowns do NOT count. Filthy cheats. ;)

    Broke my personal highscore last weekend. I got 26,500, and I was in a car of 4 people, so not that bad! I've only ever got to about the mid-teens before!

    I managed 153,000 back in 05/06 sort of time. 139,000 is the highest I have with proof though. Then again, I did used to go every weekend and was in a cart by myself. No breakdowns though!

    A friend also managed 185,000 on opening weekend in 2003, but clearly the computer systems were throwing out all sorts of crazy scores in the first few weeks.

    Doesn't count, scores only count per position.

    My gun had a fault (car 14 back right) as long as the trigger was pressed (held in) it would continue to fire but I got a low score for me.

    Was there yesterday. 138,000 have photographic evidence. No stoppages but it did slow down through one section which was have helped, though there weren't many points to shoot at.
    Do believe it broke down after I was on. Lucky eh!
