This guide details possibly the most efficient way to exp farm in boring man v2. Fair warning, this requires quite a bit of time to become optimal, and ideally you want to have your computer on the whole time and have the game running for as long as you’d like to farm, but the results are worth it if you care to obtain exp with extreme ease (and optionally farm for gold tickets as well). Also, guide structuring is currently a work in progress, so it is quite a chore to read through. Sorry about that, I will improve it with time.
-If you crave a chemical release in your brain activated by seeing your numerous level up rewards (I do this every 100 or so waves; as long as you have antacids handy and tons of consumables this really won’t put you in danger as you can easily max out your red wine bonus again, unless you have super antacids which allows you to not even have to worry about that), type in /kill in the normal chat and then immediately after, go into f1 console and use the pause command. While paused, you can claim all your level ups while not worrying about respawning in the meantime. Keep in mind that your progress doesn’t save automatically and only saves once you die or quit the game, as far as I know at least. So if you accidentally shut off your pc, your game crashes, or something else, you’ll likely lose all your progress. It sucks, and has happened to me a few times.
-The farther you progress, the better. Your exp gain only improves over time, since more enemies will always spawn per wave the farther you are. Realistically your game will end somewhere though, and on average I net about 300ish level ups per 700 wave run using this method, with later waves always netting me more exp than the earlier ones. Manling encounters have been heavily nerfed in beta14 and are typically a cake walk. You will get a large chunk of exp per manling wave clear though, and they will pop up on wave 350 and then every ~340-360 waves afterwards. I’ve had a second encounter as early as wave 694.
-Super vices help tremendously, but you’ll be completely fine without them most of the time. Each type of super vice has a cooldown of 100 waves in between appearances. Bots can and will acquire them as well. I’ve had a run where 3 different bots acquired 1 of the 3 super vices each, leaving none left for me to get for another 100 waves. It usually isn’t a big deal however, although you might be angry at Efficient Ovary for taking your precious super vice right before your eyes.
-Pause command can help you claim your cash bonus from spliffs at will. If you need money fast and you’re constantly killing enemies due to mule sentries and/or whiskey flames and cannot stop the constant boring kill streak, just pause. It will trigger your spliff bonus after a few seconds. Also, while paused, weapons/equipment and vices on the map currently will still disappear as usual, so be careful about pausing if there’s something you needed on the map currently that falls into that category. I am not sure if super vices despawn, but gold tickets do not.
-Take breaks. I don’t do more than 50 waves at a time and neither should you. Go for a walk, go make some food, watch a show, etc. Using pause and unpause, you don’t need to worry about losing your survival run. This takes some time to become an extremely effective method of grinding.
