You must have at least two people (including you) in the match in order to play it. They can be idle, but have to join. It's still doable.

It depends on too many factors. The average player can probably get 1,100$/minute with this.

Yea, more or less. That's Wanted only though. This method can provide more if the joiner is particularry good at shooting, but for some reasons I still have to understand, it's not easy to pull off a decent rate such as 2k/min (which is still 40 hours of course). Anyway, as I wrote previously there's no fixed rate, no fixed time. Plus, you have to consider both the roles on it, and hoster is not potentially as fast as the joiner. The basic maths of it are easy, but the whole stuff is not so easy to coordinate for good.
And actually I don't know how much difference can make 40 hours or 80 hours. Sure you say, it's twice as much. But after a while you start losing the feeling of time on it.
It's quite adviceable not to make any plans on time, such as "this week I will end with 1M, the next with 2.5, then in three weeks I'll have the achievement" because they will only piss you off the most. Play, play, play, play; someday you'll be at your 4.9M, and that's time to say "today I will end this shit".
P.S. I'd be more concerned of AWP if I were you. And also if I were me, and that's my current problem, since AWP races are just terrible.

Funny thing about this is I still need $175k to go. I mean if I have a real good boosting session with no accidental deaths I can get this in under three hours, but OMG it does get boring! I need to wrap this up though for sure. I am getting tired of messing with this!

hey, question about this if anyone has noticed it as well. I had the fortune of boosting with someone that preferred to be the hoster and we boosted a few mill doing this glitch. However, a few times we were boosting I was disconnected from the game (while somehow still being connected to Xbox LIVE). This always happened to me and NOT my friend who was hosting.... so i was wondering has anyone else noticed that only the joiner gets disconnected if someone DOES get disconnected during the game? or is it just me being paranoid?

Can be glitchy sometimes. Once, I was in a middle of a boosting session and all of a sudden my screen went black and the next thing I saw was that I was put in a random deathmatch lobby!

This video is great, and will defiently help me out as I've been planning on getting GTA finished for a while. Just a question though, is it best done with two people or is there a specific number its best with? Obviously in the video there's two people, what numbers the best?

I'm looking for a boosting partner for getting the Wanted achievement. I'm trying to do it with the Shemp Howard technique. I would prefer a partner who would be willing to host since I might mess up with the precedure. I'm at $2 million right now. We'll see how far we get in one sit through and continue on from there if needed. If I get it first, I'll stick around to help you get too and hope you'll do the same. I prefer someone who lives in EST time so it makes it easier for the times to coincide but it doesnt really matter as long as we're both on at the same time.

Ok so here's my problem. I've been doing this for the past week now and me and my buddy thought of this bright idea, what if I used my second xbox to host the game and let my other account and my buddy stay upstairs and get all the kills? Thing is, we got it working but the spawn upstairs was all fucked up and it wasn't going as fast as we thought. Could anyone shed some light n this as to why this was happening?... when I say the spawns were all fuckd up I mean they were spawning in wierd places and when they did spawn correctly they would run in wierd paths (or circles) and not go where they were sopposed to.

Thats just what happens when you've got two people upstairs. When me and Shemp were boosting for Wanted we sometimes had a third and the spawns would be weird.

So I guess its pointless to do it then cuz we both would get crazy amounts of money if it worked.

I seriously doubt they patched it. Rockstar has done moved onto RDR and LA Noire. Your system cache must be full and thats why you had to update again.

I've done it just about everyday the last week. It works great and is really easy to do once you get the hang of it. Took me about 2 tries to get everything down as the host and the non host is waaay easier. BTW I timed myself as the host to see how much I could get in the following times and here they are, 1 min=2100, 10 min=18600, 60 min= 112400. Keep in mind to that the non host gets money even faster!

lol the one thing this video does which I dont do is use the pistol if you set it up right all you need is the sniper and you aim at the bad guy as he is spawning and shoot him in the head with the sniper riffle not too close but close enough the his ammo falls into you. If done properly to can rubber band it and go about your business hope this helps

Awesome guide Shemp! My friend and I have been boosting for about a week using your guide ranking up like crazy. I'm on all this week if anyone wants to boost. Hit me up if I'm on.

Oh, really? Since this works on the PC version I MAY get it, if I get a boosting partner.
