Saw this post last night w/ 11 replies now it has 50+! Quite appropriate for such an ingenious method. Many props for sharing this!

I'm quite disappointed to come back from Gamestop after buying a corded controller for $24.99 to go along with my Horipad EX2 so I could do this; after reading through the comments, apparently I could use a wireless controller. Oh well, it'll probably come in handy later.

Definitely going to be boosting this for both the re-up achievements before Epic patches this method, as they are bound to do. I would recommend the same for anyone else planning to do this.

Happy boosting!

You can do this twice as fast with 4 people, just have the next guy die next to the first guy in the corner, then have the last guy pick up this weapon. The spot will cover enough area to spot both

I bought a Horipad about 2 months ago but so far I haven't tried programming it. Anyone know of a simple guide on how to program this sucker. Stuff like this needs to run at night while I'm sleeping.

Hold turbo button. Click left stick in twice. Light should continue blinking. Now all you have to do is aim at the weapon with the ghost cam.

All UK'rs, I'm using this, it's wireless though, so battery rape comes as standard, lasting about 8-10hrs so far

http://www.argos.co.uk/static/Produc...3EWILDFIRE.htm

DEFINITELY works on L3, you need a weight to hold it down though (I'm using my old 60gb 360, but anything of decent weight will do).

Did it for about just over an hour earlier 31-40 in the bag.

I have this controller at my local walmart, http://www.google.com/products/catal...ed=0CDUQ8wIwAQ
Would that work to boost this method?

To program it to continuously press a certain button, hold the desired button(s) (in this case, hold in the LS) then press the TURBO button twice.

The single light above the guide button should be blinking now, representing that it is continuously pressing the LS.

To turn off/reset the program, simply hold SELECT and TURBO at the same time.

Datel's do work actually, I have the newer turbo fire 2 i think. You can program a button switch to another button, then use the turbo feature on said button, hold it down with some weight and there you go I did a 5 min test, worked swimmingly, will do it overnight tonight for sure!

my hori pad just got here today LOL

edit, also you can do the weapon pick up with a wired xbox controller. Just hold x and unplug it(I unplug the quick disconnect thing for quicker reconnection).

you dont have to buy yourself back in. all you have to do is after your done getting your ribbons, just start and finish the first wave with the second controller. when the first controller comes back in the next wave you can back out to main menu and you still get the ribbons

Is there any limitation for this ribbon?
(e.g. 9999)

If so, we can't earn unlimited exp by using this method, right?

I am doing it by hand right now just in case they patch it before my hori comes. With 2 players picking up at the same time I am getting 75 ribbons per minute, that's 9375 points from ribbons, does that translate to 9375 xp? I haven't stopped yet as it is a little tricky to get the 2 guys picking up the weapons without fighting each other. But usually 2-3 trys and you will have them working together.

I might go pick up a datel even though I shelled out big time for that hori. I can't wait that long, my thumb is getting sore!

Edit:
I went from 44 - 50 and 185,000 XP in about 45 minutes of work, but i kept stopping, if you did it constant I'm sure you can get higher.

Why are people concerned if it gets patched? It's all private lobby boosting anyways so all you would need to do is clear the cache and do it offline...not a big deal.

You can't. You need two consoles.

i tried the two console method, i couldnt figure a way to make it so that i could spot both weapons at once without the wrong person picking up the wrong weapon, making it back to one weapon.. anyone got an idea that it can be done like that? i dont seem to get it right lol

I can confirm that a Datel turbo controller does work for idle boosting. You need to reprogram the buttons but it is easy to do on the pc. Instructions are in the manual. Anyway reprogramed so my Y button does the spotting. Works like a charm.

Make sure the guys that die have different weapons than the guys picking things up. I also made sure the second set of guys pulled out shotguns. You can also go buy a longshot or something. You just don't want them to cycle through and both have the same weapon. I.e. If a lancer is on the ground you don't want either guy having a lancer in hand or to have the same weapon.

It does work, I wish I had a way to make a video to show you guys.

P.S. I dont want it patched so I can use both consoles for half the time boosting.

As long as you had one guy with a lancer another with a retro and another with a hammerburst you should be alright.

I wish I had a 2nd xbox to use to do this would make this so much quicker

I just set it up again to confirm how I do it. You need 4 different weapons. The idea is to make it where the 2 guys swapping weapons never have a situation where he has the same weapon he is trying to pick up.

Player 1 - dies: lancer, sawed off, leave out lancer while you die
Player 2 - kills player 1: retro, gnasher, switch to gnasher and the push X
Player 3 - dies: hammer burst, gnasher, leave out hammer burst while you die
Player 4 - kills player 3: go buy a longshot, boomshot, etc, sawed off, leave out longshot while you press X

You can do it with all starting weapons, but this seemed easiest to set up.

Put player 1 in a corner, place player 3 right next to him. I shot a short video with my phone of the process working, I'll post if if there is any doubt...need to make youtube account.

BTW, you can fail the wave, I did it on insane and failed first try and the next time I completed it and got my ribbons.

Hope this helps.

Alrighty, just got home from work and was quite pleased!

With 7 hours, 21 minutes of idling, I went from rank 61 to rank 76. I earned just over 784k XP. I believe I received about 5000 ribbons, but I am not sure because the fourth number next to the ribbon was cut off.

I noticed after a while my hori ex 2 was creeping to the right. Is this cause I have the analogue stick sensitivity set incorrectly?

awesome, this helped a lot.. although i still have some questions

1. for player 4, which weapons should he start out with and which weapon should be swapped for the longshot, boomshot, etc...?

2. can you better describe the positions of each player? they end up picking eachothers weapons still sometimes which ruins the whole thing.

i will say this is faster than 2 controllers on one console, but in no way does it appear to be twice as fast.. its hard for me to position the spotter in such an angle where it spots both weapons on the ground everytime, usually it just alternates.. maybe i am missing something?
