More companies need to stay on top of XP events like Rockstar do. Especially the ones with achievements for high levels in multiplayer.

I wish they would increase the XP for GTA IV. I'm currently boosting the Wanted achievement. I'm just over halfway and already losing the will to live.

the only achievements that this helps towards in mp3 (to the best of my knowledge) is the one for reaching level 40(unlocking all weapons) and level 50 aswell as the one for levelling up your m4 to level 10

#20: Yep #21 pretty much nailed. Guess this would be a good time to set up a boosting session for right after the 'Event' ends. Just need Express Checkout, but I'll be keeping this until the next Rockstar title comes out. Whatever that is.

Level 50 here I come! (For the third time)
