if only i could use a rapid fire controller to press LS over and over. LOL At least i can brows the internet while pressing it over and over.

I dont really get why he shows to turn on vampire and must reload, its not like making it harder gives you better ribbon xp, right?

How long did that take you King Broly?

in 20 minutes i got about 31,000 xp. Not bad considering a team death match can get ya maybe 3-4k in 8-10 minutes.

If you do the first wave then you cant do it over and over because wave 2 will start soon after. Better unlock friendly fire.

yeah i just realized that, due to the base timer. hopefully i'll get 4 coop done before EPIC patches this. I'm not that hard up for re upping but I'd at least like to get the unlocks for the level progression.

i'll be playing a lot of campaign tonight. i think I need 2 acts + a few chapters worth of 4 coop.

Too bad my MadCatz controller doesn't have an L3 function :/ I would totally leave this on overnight and get that second re-up achievement. Still a nice method though.

Does any Turbo Controller have it?

What I did, for my TE at least, was leave a Wii Remote on top of the X-button (I do this for Idle boosting as well, but with the A button).

In my 66 minutes of trying it, I went up 4 levels and got 85,000 XP. It's a solid method, which is roughly 1,000 XP every 40 seconds or so.

I was reading the thread over at x360a and people are using the Hori Pad EX 2 and the TurboFire. They both have a programmable turbo function and all you need to do is put something heavy on top of it to keep it pressed.

Definitely not going to buy another controller just for this though, lol. While it would come in handy for other idle boosting, my Fightpad works well enough. It can turbo function all buttons EXCEPT the LS/RS press :/

*EDIT* Amazon and Gamestop are both sold out of the Hori EX 2 haha. I wonder why? :P

i made a mistake of turning my tv to my pc, and pressing the LS for 20 minutes. Then i go back and 2nd player wasnt switching weapons and my ghost cam pointer was looking a little off. So i ended it and winded up with 2 ribbons LOL. Guess i should watch it more often. The first two times i went to my pc and came back and it was fine. oh well.

yeah not going to buy a controller just to boost. LOL. Taking the battery pack out works just as good. Just have to keep pressing in LS.

Im up to level 82 right now. Might boost some more tonight, but im close to onyxing my horde medal for waves, so i might do that first.

Yeah, the positioning has to be just right or the gun some times flings off the screen and you're left not spotting anything. I only did it for about 5 minutes to test it out and got like 6000 EXP. It definitely is really fast but I get bored extremely easily. I also cherish my thumb, haha.

This method must have been around for a while by the looks of it. I'm guessing that's how most guys were re-upping so quickly. The big money method was a LOT faster and I actually sat there for 5 hours doing it. I can't see myself mashing my left stick for 5 hours though >_<

I could use the Hori EX 2 for Seriously 2.0 in Gears 2. The only achievement I need in it.

Actually i think its new, because in the last update they made it possible to hold the button and walk into weapons to pick them up. Instead of having to press it after you see the button show up. So by doing this, they have made an exploit to abusing the ribbon. I assume they will limit the ribbon to once a wave maybe, or do something to stop the abuse. Just hope i max my re-up before they do.

Ahhh, that is right! Before you had to actually get the X prompt before allowing you to pick up weapons, right? Totally forgot about that

damnit...I forgot about the mute button.


That's why I paused briefly after those guys joined. Went into the menu to mute him.

I need to finish about 8 or 9 scattered chapters in 4-player co-op to unlock friendly fire. I think I need all of Act 5, plus a couple random chapters in Acts 2 and 3.

got to level 85 today. Thats 5 levels in one day. I believe i got about 14,000 xp per 10 minutes doing the spotting trick. About 30,000 in 20 minutes. So thats really good. These last 15 levels are still going to take some time to get done. I need to get 72,500 to get to level 86, so thats like 50 minutes worth of spotting. Then it just gets longer after that. :/

pretty much the same, I'm down for some campaign tonight if you're up for it as well. I managed to iron out some insane chapters last night a a few 4-player w/randoms. I think the new thing is ppl idle boosting arcade campaign on casual. They just load up an early chatper and sit there hoping randoms pop in a do the chapters for them.

maybe you should get in on the 3 player coop tonight making it 4...though I hope you stick around for at least 1 full Act. Which chapter did you need? Most of us need the earlier chapters and spot chapters here and there towards the end.

If you guys are really wanting to get the 4 player Co-Op done, you can always do what me and my friend did. We both just signed in a guest account each and did it that way.. We did it on Insane but it was pretty damn hard. We did all of the chapters on Insane except the last one. We ended up changing it to Casual cause the last boss is just crazy.

It's a lot easier IMO than trying to get four people together at a designated time/working with randoms. Whether you have the persistence for Insane with two null players, well, that's a different story lol. I raged quite a bit but we got it done.

honestly at this point, casual 4player coop is fine. I just want to get it done so I can get the achievement and the unlock. I have 3 controllers, I'd pefer my xbox not look like a power strip though.

I can probably do a lot of the earlier chapters with 3 controllers in a pinch on casual w/mutators no problem...but i'll never get past the underwater submarine chapter solo w/3 controllers. haha...i guess my rockband guitar is going to get some use again.

Yup. You can only do 2 players per console. You'd need another XBOX and another copy of Gears to get the full four players.
