I like your style of play in keeping to the hammerburst and not being a shotgun whore, but you do rush to much I think. Otheerwise though gr8 work, and congrats on the 100.

I know... that's always been a major weakness of mine. Even though I get 2020 points a match on Guardian, my K/D is only 1.8.

It's the price you pay I guess for being overly aggressive and EXP hungry.

I'm just so glad its finally over and I can take it easy and celebrate... by playing a different game!!

Yeah I definitely know what you mean about the exp hunger. Online you can't really play the game tactically if you want to get a large number of points, which sucks.

Cheers dude. You've been a great help. Just give me a shout out when you are about to unlock your Vet Gear. It'll be great to be there too

I've actually got really itchy fingers for GoW 2 though. Should I give into temptation or just head back to Halo 3?!? Hmm..

When I no longer had the patience to deal with the constant cheating that I always end up being exposed too, then yes.

Like I said, if I had gone into a public match after the end of double EXP I wouldn't be awarded with it if I wasn't host.

Horde boosting is less stressful and lag-free compared to constant public matches.

Besides, on average we received about 27-30000 EXP an hour with Double EXP horde.

No matter how good you are, unless you bridge host you'll never get that sort of return in public matches.

Thanks Seddo :-)

I'm just glad its over with. If I were to play non-stop public matches it'll take me until next august before I got the Veteran Gear. That is, if I didn't become so annoyed with the MP issues that I would have thrown the game in the bin.

After I 1750 Halo 3 I'll probably move onto Lost Odyssey. that's one game I've been meaning to complete for some time now and I've heard nothing but good things about it. Any other games you can recommend? In particular... single player games?

I recommend getting your hands on Fallout 3 very soon, the GOTY edition is out pretty soon so you won't have to pay for any of the DLC either, awesome game from the creators of Oblivion (i think) which you've also played so you should like it.

Then Batman Arkham Asylum has just come out and again that is an awesome game.

I don't remember seeing any 2-piecing in the vid, just a lot of hammy using which I respect. Although I did skip a lot of it, so correct me if I'm wrong. Someone else would anyway since this is the internet.

Well, I only ever used it once in the video, right before my leader died when it was 2-2 (in the seconds vid)..

Just 20 seconds after that, I shot RAAM point blank (no 2-piecing) with the shotty with no effect what so ever.

I personally hate using the shotty (and 2 piecing especially) because it relies so much on host/good connections. The lag was so bad even with the host just being from Spain that none of my shotgun hits registered. When you're faced with such an unfair advantage due to nothing else but who has host its understandable that most players out there are forced to use it.

That's why I use the hammerburst. Hell, its not my fault when someone with a shotgun still can't kill me point blank when I've got the hammy out in their face.

I'm just grateful I don't need to play the MP again. I'll stick to playing horde with my mates.

The main reason I created these vids was to prove that my Veteran Gear was done without the need for glitching/cheating/bridging host.

There was no need to repost your videos on other people's thread. I'm sure you would not have appreciated it if somebody else did the same to you. Besides I would have been more than willing to let this thread go... there are always plenty of other games to play and complete.

PS - Xterma... I can't thank you enough for giving the idea about gaining EXP via horde the way you did until Creech locked that thread. It really helped not only myself and EliteHitokiri (one of my other buddies who unlocked Vet Gear) but plenty of others as well.

Guardian... loads and loads of guardian until about level 70 where I realised enough was enough.

I actually started off playing annex but realised that with a 24% EXP multiplier I was getting only 1300EXp for 30 minutes of gameply (I averaged about 5350 points per Annex match).

Then I started playing guardian when I started hitting the high 40's low 50's in level because of the better EXP multiplier (it's about 82/83% now).

I had pretty crap stats when I started off with a K/D around 0.5, but they started picking up after that. Even though my K/D is now only 1.8, I'm happy that I averaged about 2020 EXP per game. I suppose it was because I was so EXP hungry that I always had the attitude that getting 1-2 kills everytime you died once was worth it.

I went in solo most of the time and didn't quit out, but I'm rather pleased I've played about 800 odd matches and won much more than I've lost.

Holy crap dude! Boosting horde for your wings? I'd never have the patience to boost on horde. How long did it take? It took me nearly two and a half months of boosting guardian to get my wings.

I guess that is true when you are from the UK. Which sucks, epic has no clue on how to do a region filter so you have to play against americans and other countries. Me and my team didn't bridge/force host or cheat in any form to get our wings but I guess there are more americans playing so we got matched against them more often. I didn't start boosting till I was a 69, which was when I got tired of the inconsistencies of this game.

@ McDurbin

Surprisingly... not that long. About 1.5 months if I remember. I always had a sloid crew of about 12-18 players who were keen on boosting with me, so it really wasn't an issue. Even before the Labour day weekend, I had managed to hit level 82 just playing regular horde on insane. But the 2 weeks I managed to have with 2x EXP helped me earn my wings.

I think if someone is willing to leave their 360 on for a month, they could very well earn their level 100 just by playing horde.

As for the region-filtering... yet again another broken promise from EPIC. When I was playing Halo 3, I had team-mates and friends from literally all over the planet. 1 from Japan, 2 or 3 from the states and of course the odd European all in the same team in BTB. Almost lag-free considering.

These videos were taken against a Spanish host (just over 900-1000 miles away). Then you saw how laggy it was. Of course for a game to rely so heavily on host advantage is a major weakness on EPIC's part.


@TrueCrusader17
Many thanks mate. I think the key thing no matter what you do, is find yourself a good team/boosting team and making sure you stick with it. Aim for a target of say... 200-250,000 EXP weekly. Before I went for GoW 2 boosting I always aimed for a minimum of 250,000 EXP weekly (playing solo on matchmaking).

Big congrats to you, that's a hell of an achievement.

It's really great to see that there's a video of 100 on YouTube that's actually about getting the achievement legit, and seeing it pop on the screen, rather than a "Gears 2: How to glitch level 100." If you were to search for "Gears 2 level 100," 99% would be glitch. Yours (thus far) stands alone.

Kudos on the legitimacy.

I don't know, I got over 100k in a day when I was 99 playing online warzone. Getting about 4-6k for a 10 minute game made the last level go very quick. That's probably over 30k an hour, especially the last hour I needed like 40k and after a few games I had level 100. And I never hosted either.
