Max Payne 3 - Payne Thresholds

A couple of days ago, I posted about the new Max Payne 3 updates and I mentioned a new feature for Multiplayer: Payne Thresholds. I managed to get some game time in the past few days and got to see how this new feature works. 

The Payne Thresholds is basically a set of challenges that are available for a week. There are 4 levels you can achieve for each challenge; Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum. Complete these challenges and get rewarded with various amounts of XP depending on the level you reach. If you manage to complete the requirements for the platinum level, you will be rewarded with a unique title that earns you bragging rights. Considering this title is displayed beside your name whenever you kill someone in the game or when you are the top player in a match, you will demand respect from the other players.

Personally, I would have preferred the reward to be a unique custom for your character avatar. It would have been more prominent but what the heck, I'm don't think I'm gonna complete the tougher platinum challenges. Personally I find it too challenging though many out there would have breezed through them. Anyway, these challenges will be up only for a week before new ones will be released so hurry up and get them before they end. The XP rewards are quite substantial so even if you manage only to complete the silver and gold challenges, it's a good boost in your goal to reach level 50.

5000XP for gold is pretty good but I want that Juggernaut title. Not sure why the date states August 4 though, could be some bug.
