Got a question about AWP boosting

On Trueachievements I noticed that whenever anyone makes boosting sessions for the AWP achievement, they only ever boost the Races. This is despite the fact that the achievement requires you to win in Team Deathmatch, Team Carjack City, Turf War, Cops N Crooks and a bunch of other stuff. What I am wondering is, why do people only boost the races and none of the other events that are required? Does everyone just do everything legit apart from the races? Is the other stuff impossible to boost? Just trying to figure out if it's worth me trying to go for the achievement, if I have to do everything legit except for the Races.

It probably has to do with there only being 12 games which you can boost with 2-4 people in two hours versus the 108 races which will take days, if not weeks to boost through.

No matter which way you look at it (or boost it) the races are the big bear. The other games like deathmatch, car jack, turfwar, team---, etc are only going to take up 5-8% of the time you're playing for Petrovic. Probably why people are focusing on the races.

How many people are actually needed to boost?

I read somewhere that when someone was trying to do races, they has 2 players, but the game wouldnt start the game, due to a lack of players.

For races you can start with only two people. Some of the other gametypes require more than 2 people, but races can be started with just two people. The reason a lot of people boost in larger groups is so they can take control of lobbies easier.

This is true although now that the game has been out for 4 years I'm assuming it's easier for groups of two to find their own lobby now.
