Excellent Guide!

Only missing Seriously 2.0 and Veteran Gear now...

Seriously 2.0 is going to take forever, I've literally just got my 50,000th kill so half way there!

Hoping to boost veteran Gear on 4th July xp event so hopefully I'll have this game done and dusted by the end of July

I'm looking to some of the online achievements. Do I need all of the maps in order to play the social playlists?

Wasn't sure where to put this, but you can get all of the DLC for Gears of War 2 (Flashback, Combustible, Snowblind, Road to Ruins) for only 800 Microsoft Points. I believe it only lasts until the end of this week.

For the Horde achievements that are related to XP level, do I need to hit that XP level before I do all the required waves? Does order matter?

No, the order doesn't matter. XP first or complete waves first, or a mixture of both.

Thanks. Time to get from 45 to 100 then and worry about the other requirements later.

Boosting koth during these xp weekends is the quickest way, but very boring. Playing horde on a medium to hard difficulty, while getting the various rounds is a lot better. if you need some help with horde, message me when I'm online.

I have 4 KOTH boosting sessions this weekend with 20x XP and 5 KOTH boosting sessions next weekend with 25x XP to get me from 76 to 100. Is this enough to get me to 100?

Level 76 to 100 requires ~4,050,000 experience (that's like going from level 1 to 85!). If you score at least 80,000 points for each KotH session during the 20x experience event you'll get ~1,600,000 experience and will only need ~2,450,000 experience to reach level 100. By scoring at least 80,000 points per KotH session again, you'll get ~2,500,000 experience and reach level 100.

Also, you can search randomly for Social King of the Hill and most of the matches are for boosting purposes. Just pull out your smoke grenade and start swinging it around to signal the other players that you're willing to boost. You'll get the occasional non-booster and bots, though.

Actually 80,000 points is only (I use 'only' loosely :l) 400,000 exp with 20x. Xp in KOTH is the end points multiplied by 0.25, then this number itself will be multiplied by 20.
But yeah, the smoke grenade has practically become a symbol of 'peace' in the KOTH community

I know that. He said he only has four KotH sessions available during the 20x experience event: 400,000 x 4 = 1,600,000. Then he mentioned he only has five KotH sessions available during the 25x experience event: 500,000 x 5 = 2,500,000; which will get him to rank 100.

Oh, fair enough then. I misread it and thought you meant per session :S
Sorry dude, my bad.

Hard to say, since the last weekend had the 15x multiplier in effect.

McGoogles, the schedule that I laid out sounds about just right to get me to 100 then, assuming we have no connection issues.

It's fine. I could see how you could get confused.

Just make sure you score at least 80,000 points (~27,000 points per round). That means breaking the ring whenever possible, not goofing around when it's your turn to capture the ring, etc.

If someone drops out of the game for any reason, send me a message and I'll gladly join (assuming I'm online at the time).
