Huzzah I have an idea, better illustrated in the picture below:

http://i114.photobucket.com/albums/n243/luk070/Thesolution.jpg

As shown in the image, Player 3 kills Player 1 as Player 2 kills Player 4. Then Player 2 Revs Player 1, And Player 3 Revs Player 4. This should get you 1 kill/rev every 5-10 seconds or so. Now this can be done in a ranked match by Player 1 hosting (Uprising btw, more points because of captain kills) and 2/3/4 searching specifically for uprising on X map. This should be extremely simple and at 15 seconds a kill (allowing for errors) it would be 4 hours for 500 revs. This is assuming you swap places after every match, also in my example players 1 and 4 dont even have to be at their consoles.

Let me know what you think, any problems that you can think of or even a faster way to do this. Hope this helps. One more thing, i need 2 people to help me do this, since i don't know many people on FC2. I'd love for some to sign up, im also up for farming beyond 500 revs for Exp...Damn that rank 30. Heh.

Edit: 1 more person needed to try this out.

I'm up for trying this.
Sounds like an efficient way to get some easy revs and experience - as well as helping towards 'Solider of Misfortune'.

Thanks SpiderArcy, just need 2 more to try this. Any input at all would be nice, as far as i know this would be the easiest way to get Field Hospital without having 15 friends willing to continually setup revs for you. Maybe someone has an easier way?

Sorry for the noobish question, but will this get you the achievements for MP?

luk070
10-29-2008, 01:54 AM
It would get you the rank based ones and the Field hospital achievements (500 revs). Also go towards the weapons one (all field manuals)

Just tried this with SpiderArcy/Whisky/RadiantMist and it worked very well, Fastest exp i've ever had. Only problem we had was hitting too much and killing instead of downing, but once we learnt how to do it it was amazing. Going to have a session all day tomorrow so if anyone wants to join (we might have 1 slot open.) please post here or send me FR.

how much exp you guys getting a round ?

luk070
10-29-2008, 12:39 PM
With practice, we should be getting around 3000-3600 per round (15mins). And around 50-60 Revs.

it would be 4 hours for 500 revs.
Man I did yesterday 3 player TeamDeatmatch in one match I got 245 Revives and my friend 245 kills both receive 3.675 XP in 15 minutes.

Map Last Bastion.

PS.: use the knife it dont jam. ;)


I will try today with Uprising because the Captain thing, thanks for the tip.

Man I did yesterday 3 player TeamDeatmatch in one match I got 245 Revives and my friend 245 kills both receive 3.675 XP in 15 minutes.

I don't understand how this would be possible since a team deathmatch has a kill cap of 100
Though I guess it could be possible on uprising, as there is no kill limit.

luk070
10-29-2008, 03:47 PM
As SpiderArcy said, 245 kills in a TDM is impossible, due to the 100 kill limit, please explain :)

oOThrissy
10-29-2008, 04:10 PM
hehe, works pretty good :P

vultu
10-29-2008, 04:49 PM
As SpiderArcy said, 245 kills in a TDM is impossible, due to the 100 kill limit, please explain :)
Because you will revive your friend all the time, so the score stay in 0 - 0 and the game will finish just after 15 minutes. ;)

luk070
10-29-2008, 05:01 PM
Oh, I thought the kill still counted even if they were revived. Well we just had a 2 hour session of this with me, SpiderArcy, oOThrissy and RadiantMist we got around 3000 mostly, here is a screenshot of our best match for proof:

http://i114.photobucket.com/albums/n243/luk070/DSC00002.jpg

As you can see its not bad at all, I also noticed a glitch where for some reason it just does not let you revive someone. This could be related to obstructions or it could just be some strange bug, it seems that killing the person who cant revive his teammate fixes the issue. Any input would be nice.

Have more than I need right now, but nothing stopping other people from making separate parties to do it. By the way, if your joining with me and im hosting it will always be Uprising on Last Bastion, so if i invite you along please search ranked > custom > uprising on last bastion. This saves me explaining this to everyone i hope.

what the point in "boosting" isnt a game there to have fun, not to get headshots or whatnot, and all for an achievement! its not really an achievement if you "farm" (haha farm), youre very sad if you do this

luk070
10-29-2008, 11:07 PM
Well this is the achievement forum, where people like to have high gscore, do you realise getting the rank 30 achievement is 1.5 million experience? it would take an extremely long time through normal play. Not only that but rank ups means more diamonds to spend, more choice of weapons = more fun. Make more sense to you? I don't like to just stick to one class so i'd like to have all (or most) fully upgraded and useable whenever i want without first putting in 100's of hours.

luk070
10-30-2008, 02:57 AM
Okay, i've been crunching some numbers. I wanted to compare my 4-Player method (shown in OP) with vultu's 3-Player method, so i worked out the points per hour based on games we've done. Here they are:

3-Player Method:

7284 Experience Per Hour.
133 Revives Per Hour.

4-Player Method:

6760 Experience Per Hour.
140 Revives Per Hour.

Now you can see the 3-Player method yields more experience and slightly less revives (marginally). So the 3-Player method is infact better. How to do 3-Player method:

Two on one team, and one on the other. There are 3 different roles which you will rotate after every game (making for a 45-minute session for fairness). Firstly, the shooter, he is on a team on his own. Secondly, the reviver, he will be on the team with the person whos getting shot, and continually revive him as the shooter kills him. Lastly, the person getting shot, can be away from console although it could cause problems should the shooter mess up and kill instead of down. The person getting shot should ALWAYS be the captain, as a captain kill yields 30 Experience (15 for normal kills).

Known problems: Revive bug, it appears that occassionally it is impossible to revive, cause is unknown. Fix: Kill reviver.

This can be done with the shooter equipped with a knife instead, although this prevents the shooter from gaining progress on a maintenance manual.

Hope this helps. P.S. Proof of 3-Player Method:

yes i agree but my point was that an achievement doesnt mean anything if you havent earned it, and from all the time you've wasted boosting you could have been having fun playing this game, or if the weapons arent good enough for you then play another game, arent games about having fun? and all for 40gs haha

luk070
11-02-2008, 11:40 PM
Earning achievements is what makes things fun, and who said hours of boosting wasn't hard work? You put effort in you get an achievement, either way im just trying to help anyone out who wants to boost a bit. Also doing this will get alot of experience very fast, and what does this do? Every rank you get a new diamond to put into upgrading a class, if you have more unlocked you're going to have more fun. This and the 500 revives achievement would be my main reasons, once i have those i'll probably just play normally or go back to Halo 3.

absolutly agree , really . games mean fun . i've never bothered about having alla games at 100% , but , u know , having 1000 on 1000 is pretty cool , also if you loose some time for boosting .

FE , i know i'll never get the 10.001 kills in bad company , or all the MP manuals in far cry 2 , but , no problem for me . better having fun , than getting frustrated while boosting .

hours of boosting isnt hard work, it just takes a long time, and earning achievements arent fun if you dont earn them properly without having to cheat and make people stand still so you can kill them, with so many games coming out, just play for fun, if youre not good enough to kill people normally then go ahead, make them stand still and shoot them in the head, btw i loved your comment about practising a game, brilliant your gonna go really far in life, you practise for your halo 3 tournament, while your at it lets all go boosting!!! achievement whore

Wait, your judging my life performance on how i play games? Whether the way i play bores you or not isn't important, I can do what i want to be honest and it doesn't even concern you. As for practicing for a Halo 3 tournament, it was a charity based tournament, and if you enter a tournament you'd like to win would you not? Practice. If you look at my gamer-score and most of my games you will know i am no achievement whore, i only have one game maxed and thats not because i played it to max it thats because i like the game. Generally i try to achieve a respectable gamer-score then move on, if something becomes too frustrating/isn't worth my time i wont do it. I made this thread for the purposes of assessing/experimenting with a method of boosting. Why am i so bad for helping others out and testing things and posting the results publicly? Sure i hunt for achievements sometimes, and maybe spend a bit of overtime doing it, but this does not give you the right to insult me. Seriously.

When i get an idea i just wanna test it out, and improve it in every way possible. If i want to do something, i want to work out the fastest/simplest way to do it, this is just me being me. If i apply that to doing some pointless boosting in Far Cry 2 that's okay for me, i just enjoy it.
