Pretty sure it was 5000 but I just unlocked it today for only a 1000 kills. I know they had a patch this morning when I logged their was a patch, so was just wondering if they had changed it or if it was a different achievement I had gotten?

Unlocking Hardcore mode has nothing to do with how many kills you've racked up. It's unlocked by beating the game on Hard mode.

I have yet to finish the campaign, and have already played several games of team hardcore deathmatch. So I think you might be wrong, also in the first set of grinds it says that you unlock it through X-amount of kills.

I was referring to Hardcore difficulty level in the sp campaign.

Same here, guessing cause there is only 41 players playing hardcore tdm.
