ranking up Bowie Knife help

Recommended Posts

so this weekend is double weapon xp, but all I have left is the Bowie Knife. 

 

even with double xp, it still doesn't seem to rank up, has anyone found a way to rank it up? if so, whats its highest rank?

 

(yes I have searched for this before a few times, does using blast furnace still work?)

 

I tried the blast furnace method before but it didn't seem to do anything.

 

any help is much appreciated.

I believe the blast furnace method still works, it is just a long slow process. I levelled up the Bowie knife on The Giant, just running trains at the power switch. How many kills have you got trying to level it up? I don't think the level starts to move until you have unlocked all the camos, but after that even if you don't hit the first level the progress bar in weapon kits should show if it is working or not. It's a pain to upgrade, would be interested to see if it is any quicker whilst the double weapon xp is active as the upgrade process seems quite buggy and inconsistent. I think the max level was 11.

A problem I came across while trying to rank up / unlock the camos with the Bowie knife is that instakill kills didn't seem to count in anyway. It's one of the trickier weapons to do. 

 

Not sure if this is still relevant but that's what I found. No instakill! :)
