Seriously Achievement Glitch?

I'm after some information for a friend whether or not you can still do this, and, whether you can get banned for doing this? Can the "source" get banned for this as well?


*Note* I'm not thinking about doing this, personally.

Nah you can't get banned/reset for that.

1) That's an awesome glitch. But technically it's really just leeching off of someone else's account who has already obtained those Achievements.

2) Your question is answered within the uploader comments:

  • Can you get banned for this or is it only frowned upon?

  • I've been doing this for people for close to 3 years now.
    Nobody I've ever done it to has been banned. Considering how glitchy the Achievements are (i.e., people getting Seriously at 3000 kills, etc.) AND that Gears 2 is already out, nobody really cares about Gears 1's Achievement Glitch.
    tl;dr, just frowned upon, if someone ever found out, and they won't.

I don't have Xbox LIVE Gold. So please don't ask me for boosting assistance.

Chers guys, that's what I was thinking.

It's not actually "hacking" the game and/or gamertag, you're just using un-patched bugs in the game to your advantage. There's no denying that this game is EXTREMELY buggy, but, it's a classic, so it's acceptable, lol.

For the record, mods/admins, please leave this thread up. I've sent my friend a link to it so as he can see for himself.

I will leave it up and add that if anyone is caught on the site that has done it is banned and the info is forwarded to MS for GS reset.

Space for rent.
