80 hours in a game, being in a lobby does not count.

Host a match of any length and set it to restart automatically - then leave your 360 on for about 4 days...

This Achievement is the only one left for me...

45 minute rounds...

Leave this console on for about 8 hours a day (time I'm gone to work)

And it'll take me about 10 days to get it. Perhaps less since I don't turn it off if it's in the middle of a round.

Pretty sure you don't even have to have players in the matches with you. Just load it up, auto-start, and leave for a while. Oh, and hope you don't have anything to play on your 360 while you get that Achievement.

Player matches are fine. I remember when I was playing this you could never find a ranked match, but thier was all kinds of player matches.

I'm currently going for this, too, having gotten all of the other multiplayer achievements. Look for me in the Chaos Player Match lobby. Feel free to join in and get your kills if you need them. I should be done in a couple of days.

P.S. My internet and/or wireless adapter periodically kicks me out of Live, for reasons that I don't understand. If one of my games cuts out, I'll get it back up and running as soon as I notice it.

It's interesting how, in only like 10 years or so, video game culture has accepted it's old insult of 'geek', and has actually embraced it.
Uber Geeks REJOICE! :p

Here's how I got my Uber Geek. Set it to 45 min matches. Max 2 slots with 1 private. That way no-one would join up when I was at work etc. Auto launch with shortest time.

Sure enough after 3.5 to 4 days *bloop* unlocked.

I want to try this game but this achievement looks like hell along with the vial collecting achievement

how long do you think it would take for 1000 in this game playing all day everyday and boosting???

I got this game in March of 2006. It was my first 360 game, and for a few weeks, it was my only 360 game. I played it a ton when I first got it, and sporadically ever since. I still haven't maxed it. I've got 930/1000, still need 80 hours. I put quite a bit of legit time into this game's multiplayer, and the majority of my achievements here were done without boosting. But I've got everything else I need, and there is no way I'm playing another 20 hours or so of a multiplayer I don't much care for anymore when I can just earn it w/out even playing.

Thats why I'm here, I just wanted to make sure I'm doing it right. This is not an easy points game. Everything is pretty time consuming. You have to beat the campaign 6 times for christ's sake.

Hard Way
