We found the fastest way to boost!
 
Me and Bodom78 just discovered a method of boosting experience that is over twice as fast as the siege method...

Map: Quarantine

Game Mode: Capture the Flag
-10 Points
-5 Minutes (won't take that long, but just to be safe)...

Equipment:
-Thermo Rocket
-Fleetfoot

Just destroy the interior of each flag building and the structure in the middle of the map... then swap capturing the flag...

The winner will receive 440 xp and the looser will receive 380 (you can swap back and forth on winner/looser to even out the exp)... from start to finish... it takes around 3 minutes to go from the lobby to being finished... (including loading screen)...

I made this video of me and Bodom78 doing it so you can get a better picture (sorry for the bad quality...):

Edit: yeah that is a bit faster, by like 200 EXP for the winner

Filter x360a 06-06-2009 06:52 PM

440 - 3 min
380 - 3 min
440 - 3 min
380 - 3 min
440 - 3 min
380 - 3 min
440 - 3 min
380 - 3 min
440 - 3 min
380 - 3 min

Equals 4100 XP in 30 min. How much were you getting on siege?

Siege:
Loading Screen (10-20 seconds) + 1 Minuted Round + Second Loading Screen (10-20 seconds) + 1 Minute Round = 2:40 for 105-200 exp depending on kills... (105 with no kills)

Capture the Flag Method:
Loading Screen (10-20 seconds) + 2:30-3:00 = 2:50-3:20 for 380-440 (winner-looser)... With no killing at all needed...

So 105-200 (200 being rare) per 2:40
to
380-440 garunteed per 3:30 (maximum time which doesn't happen a lot, he and I were finishing every 2:55ish)...

CTF is faster...

maybe like 2,800 for 30 minutes but at a constant, CTF isnt what i would call a constant, but it will still prob net you more

theres always human error(like running the wrong way) you have to calculate in the equation for CTF so maybe add an extra minute or two every 3 games, either wya good job on the find

How would you run the wrong way...? Quarantine is the smallest map in the game (just the 4 buildings) and the flags are separated by about 10 yards of open space...

In siege the only constant is 105xp... anything more than that depends on kills (which are definitely not constant)...

Even at the max xp you would get, 200 (which is hard to get for both players and doesn't happen often)... 200 per 2:40 is ~75xp/min or 2,250/30min... and remember that is the MAX, which is rare...

With CTF, even the minimum (which is always constant), and the max time of 3:30... ~108exp/min or 3,250/30min... and that is the MIN, which won't happen at all if you alternate...

With CTF, alternating... Filter already posted the average... 4,100xp/30min... at average... if you go faster, or your friend lets you have all the wins... you could maybe even be up to over 5,000xp/30min...

Filter x360a 06-06-2009 07:11 PM

CTF is by far the fastest I've seen. Nice Find! Gonna try this now.

I am not saying I am perfect... I am saying that you would have to be a pretty stupid person to get lost on Quarantine... especially on CTF since there are 2 big giant signs on the screen that show where the flags are... that coupled with the fact that there is no alternating route or anything like that... you simply run in a straight line back and forth between the flags...

I am sorry... but if you get lost running in a straight line... you are a retard.

xhunterrrr 06-06-2009 07:17 PM

Let's be nice now. :)

I wasn't saying he was a retard... I was speaking in general... if a person gets lost walking in a straight line... they are stupid...

BY FAR the fastest way to boost XP. Works SOOOO well. Thanks for the tip, I'll add it to the guide.

NarrBitaYarr 06-06-2009 10:25 PM

nice job guys, I will be trying this soon.
Anyone up for a boost for the next couple of days? msg me on live if so.

stee01 06-07-2009 08:06 AM

Anyone fancy trying this today. Send me a meassage, I give it a shot. My GT is Stee01

Evans214 06-07-2009 08:38 AM

I sent you a message, NarrBitaYarr.

Cheers for telling the community about this.

g0d53nd 06-07-2009 10:10 AM

great find. Although i must say if ur going 1000/1000 in this game, you might as well do the 250 wins and 250 plays by then u will have alot of the xp out of 100k then just finish up with this method.. unless ur just going for all the unlocks before or instead of achs. then of course this is a great find :)

NarrBitaYarr 06-07-2009 12:19 PM

:eek:
You sir, make a very good point. I may have to re-evaluate my game plan before I start boosting... forgot about winning 250 matchmade games...

Sync205 06-07-2009 02:03 PM

Feel like trying this anyone?
 
if anyone wants to try this at sum point today Message me ingame

Basileus 06-07-2009 02:14 PM

Well im happy with the exp i get from the 20 kills in team anarchy :P

TALINKINMAN 06-07-2009 03:51 PM

i went from a blue bar with no unlocks and now i and a one stripe gold bar with the bronze face crusher in about 8 hours i applaude you o king of da booster for you smart ways and there is no point in worrying about those 250 in matchmaking because you can always play matchmaking but you use custom to get badges and challanges done then laugh you way through matchmaking so your not like dam i was sooooooooooooooooooooooooooo close

I think we can both confirm it is lol.

And yeah, I posted. Happy?

Scotsman Elite 06-07-2009 10:42 PM

While I was doing this, me and my mate found a little addition to this method.
Still follow the same rules and so on, however when capturing each others flag, have your opponent pick up your flag then drop it, allowing you to return your flag and then capture theirs. This adds on +2 xp per go, sure it's a little, but it adds up over the games and it doesn't waste time either as long as you keep a steady movement.
