How to Rank up on to Level 100 very quickly on Gears of War 2 and obtain the Achievement: 'Veteran Gear'
IMPORTANT: This content was updated on 21st August 2012. As there is now a way to boost this achievement that is about 10x quicker.
Horde Wave 1 - Security Boosting
Method 1, is no doubt not the quickest way in the world to get Veteran Gear, but it is going to be classed as method 1 because it is the easiest to setup and it is by far the safest way to do so.
All you have to do is set up a private horde starting on wave 1.
Select insane difficulty
Have at least 3 other players, ideally you want 5, but 4 players is fine.
All choose lancer weapons, as the clip is longer and chainsaw is highly useful in horde.
At the beginning of the wave, dont worry about grenades although you can get them if you want to!
Set yourself up ready in this formation shown below.
This formation means that the locust will spawn in the red areas only. On wave 1, it is really easy to kill everybody. As soon as you have finished the wave, (should take no more than 1 minute ideally!) you jump in the lasers. You all need to do this, which is a little irritating as someone is always like 'oh yeh sorry guys'
See me explain this method in the video below in greater detail. I highly recommend you guys get on your mics and grind it out together.
I used to do this over 2 years ago, and we would only be getting 250xp per wave! Now you get 500xp i believe as permanent 2x XP now exists on Gears 2.
It will take a while to do this, but it is a very sociable way of boosting it together, and requires less concentration than KoTH boost and less organising to set it all up! If someone wants a break then you can try and do wave 2, 3, 4, 5, which take longer but means that you can do toilet breaks or lunch times quite efficiently.
If you give me a shout i will send invites to everyone on the site!
To boost on KoTH all you have to do is
get 9 other players.. (easier said than done)
make sure 2 hosts are from the same country
search for social KoTH at the same time.
find each other.
Jump in the ring, then out of the ring and take in turns.
I'm sure you guys know how it works by now?
Basically this method is still a grind, but its much quicker than almost every other method!
Watch the video below which is from a 22x XP event, where i went from level 1 to 100 in 10.2 hours of gameplay. I did however lose xbox live connection 2 times, which cost me over 3 hours and i was host in one of them.. so everyone lost all the xp as it doesnt get awarded until the end of the match!
Another point to make.. make sure you have a stable connection! Make sure you use ethernet cable opposed to wifi, as you never know when your girlfriend or mom is going to go on Facebook and mess with your connection. Using an ethernet cable is just best practice and reduces risks or laggin out of a match or just getting booted off xbox live.
You should also let anyone using your internet connection that you plan to do some really important stuff on a game and that you need a stable connection to do it. Hopefully they will be understanding! If not then i would try a different method.. (see above or below)
To boost this achievement you will need:
Are you looking for players? Then signup to the site now and bookmark this page. There are lots of people on this site who want to boost and we regularly run events for boosting all the achievements.
You then need to find a social match with each other on guardian. Not too difficult nowadays.. the hardest part is getting a specific map 'fuel station'.
If you have players from USA and UK, then just make sure the hosts are from the same country or it could be difficult to find each other.
Once you have found each other in a match dont quit if you get the wrong map! Just kill the leader and then everyone else on one team and get through the match as quickly as possible until you land on the right map. This is the best way to save time. There are a lot of maps however so you could get really unlucky! but keep trying.
If you can find each other efficiently enough then you could try quitting if you land on the wrong map.
Now, once you are in a match on fuel station you will need to stay there, and you need to ensure you are on a stable connection. Make sure you use ethernet cable opposed to wifi, as you never know when your girlfriend or mom is going to go on Facebook and mess with your connection. Using an ethernet cable is just best practice and reduces the risk.
You should also let anyone using your internet connection that you plan to do some really important stuff on a game and that you need a stable connection to do it. Hopefully they will be understanding! If not then i would try a different method.. (see below)
The way to boost is shown in this video below. You can get 2 leaders in the lift, one in each door and revive the crap outta that leader.. It would be best to make a player who wants to be idle, or a guest player the leader. You will also have to take in turns reviving the leader, maybe have 1 hour on then switch?
The other players can spawn kill the other players, its best to have 2 guests on each team then 3 people who are active on each team.
Basically this method is really awesome for 2 people. You could potentially do this by aiming to have lots of idle players. You could get 2 consoles, 4 controllers and get someone else to do the same! Then you would be able to get there in no time!
This method is last on the list because even though it is the quickest way.. it is not good for all the players involved and is not easily set up!
If you manage to get the lift method working efficiently then comment below or write a post about it! Lots of people would love to hear!
This video explains how to then boost xp with one leader and a player. The player who is getting the revives will get a lot of points as he is constantly reviving the leader.
Now the cool part about this, is that you can have 2 leaders in the lift getting revived constantly. So this means 2 people would be getting a whole load of points.
What do the other players do? you may ask. Well there would be a total of 2 guests on each team, each team would have 1 other human who can go around spawn killing the two guests. Ensuring that there is a decent amount of xp going around for everyone.
Now for the Maths!
How much XP can I get doing this method?
When I played a social Guardian match yesterday. I recorded how many points I obtained and how much xp I recieved.
I obtained 2073 points in a social guardian match, and at the end I received a pretty hefty 5743 xp. Now I am not entriely sure if there is a win bonus applied here, but if there isnt then the following is true.
2073 points = 5743xp
5743/2073 = 2.770381
so 2.770381 is the multipling factor. You can apply this to the amount of points you have to see how much xp you will get.
When I was reviving in the video, I received 2908 points in 54 seconds.
So this is equal to 53.851 points per second on average.
53.851 points per second * 60 = 3231 points per minute
3231 points per minute * 60 = 193,866 points per hour
193,866 points per hour * 5 = 1,163,199 points every 5 hours.
Lets add in some xp multiplier..
per hour, 193,866 points = 537,008xp!
per 5 hours, 1,163,199 = 3,222,504xp! This is equivilant to ranking up from 1 to 79 in 5 hours!!! :o
The bonus of doing this is that the leaders can go off and do whatever whilst the others are simply reviving.
You can stalemate the match as long as you want to get points. This is the fastest way to get the achievement and there is no faster way unless you want to hack/glitch which are methods that will get you banned. Furthermore you will only unlock the gold weapons on Gears 3 if you have XP from Gears of War 2. You need 6.8 million in total to get to level 100.
