So Achievement Boosting Wasnt That of an Idea...

So it turns out you can get exp banned for achievement boosting. And sadly, my last two achievements is Lightswitch and Spartan Officer.

So a note to future people getting 100% in Halo 3, get it legit, not boosting. Or you'll end up waiting 2 weeks for two damn cheeves.

Bungie's automated banhamm0rz I guess.
At first I thought it was cause I was gaining mucho exp from derankers.
But then one of the people I was boosting with got banned to. >_<

Yeah I got a 2 week ban for boosting in social with some people and extra controllers. It's not a big deal though as it's temporary. Plenty of other games out there to kill the time with until you can finish leveling up.

Ah wish I'd seen this a little sooner. I just got through playing on two 360s with 8 controllers and got a majority of the achievements. Now I'm XP banned for two weeks

Probably didn't have anything to do with achievements so much as the stats I was pulling off; in the course of doing the achievements I got a Perfection, 5 Exterminations, 7 Overkills, and a lot more. Probably got a good 100+ kills with 0 deaths, and while stat boosting wasn't my intention at all that's what brought on the ban ><.

Oh well, it's not the end of the world so whatever, though I did plan on getting 7on7 this month so that's a bummer.

tl;dr - Call it the Xbox One or X1.

Precisely why I get through MP chievos assoon as possible. Even without boosting if I see a chance at one I'll abandon all objective or K/D to get it.

When your xp banned, can you still play? or does it ban you from play multiplayer?

Yes you're still able to play but you don't gain any xp.

I'm thinking of doing some boosting with controllers and a friend but this EXP ban, its for 2 weeks? Will it mean I can't play multiplayer or something else entirely?

Edit: so according to the halo wiki, an exp ban merely means you can't increase exp for 2 weeks. Considing I don't need any exp achievements, I don't see this as being a hurdle in my efforts of trying to get the remaining achievements. I guess I'd have to pick slayer on a small map, get 15 kills quickly, then have the other players kill each other a bit

All I have is Overkill. Is it a big risk to do the language trick? Or does that even work anymore?

I don't even need the achievements I did them all legit but my friends SUCK at Halo.

I boosted 2 friends and received 2 2 week bans....

My 3rd time gave me a month ban. I don't boost EXP with anyone anymore now lol.

So i'd be careful.

What gets you caught is having idle/afk players. So while you're boosting achievements, just make sure you move all players/guests around and get a kill or two with each and you should be fine. I have boosted to 1750 multiple times over the 4 years this game has been out and I haven't been exp banned once.
