                    I know, but it's not like there's any real bonus to keeping them alive longer, like some hunting grounds where you're competing for every kill.

                    EDIT:
                    Also, there is no overkill. Only open fire, and time to reload.

                          I get that in a proper hunting ground, which is what I was trying to convey when I said "Where you're competing for every kill." But, when you're training in the Ludus, where you don't have to go looking for your next kill every time, you just stand there for three seconds and a new one spawns, how does using a tin gladius over retalq help you increase sp efficiency?
