    This isn't really a solution, more some advice for people trying to unlock the various kill related achievements as quickly as possible - at the end of every boosting session you should play a quick one round local match against a second controller before quitting to dashboard or turning off your xbox. I've done this and unlocked Seriously yesterday pretty much bang on 10000 kills. I've also unlocked all the weapon kill achievements after 100 kills.

    I think what's going on is that sometimes, for whatever reason, the progress you make in the last match of a session isn't added to the various achievement counters. I first noticed this when boosting the 'Win 20 matches on map X' achievements - if I won 20 matches in one session the achievement would pop, but if I spread them out across multiple sessions I'd have to play 21, 22, sometimes 23 matches depending on how many sessions it took.

    PeachCloud87115Got mine at 10291 however I was triple boxing and getting 111 kills every match so this could have popped way before if I had have done single sessions

    This achievement has become glitched after the last patch. It will take over 10,000 kills to net this one.

    All the kills MUST be on ranked matches and kills on Annex DO NOT COUNT towards the "10,000"

    Personally it took me 12,827 kills to get this one and I've heard of people with 15,000 - 18,000 that still dont have it, so just hope you have some luck and keep at it.

    My personal way of getting the most kills is to host 10-12 round matches on smaller maps (Raven Down, Fuel Depot) with a 2-3 min duration (playing with friends helps too, to trade off hosting duties). I averaged 20-30 kills per match.

    Just have fun playing and don't give up, you will get it eventually and oh boy will you enjoy it :D

    z RagnaroK zDoes anyone have any idea if there's ever been an issue with switching consoles? What I mean by that is this: I started playing gears1 on the 360 years ago. Got about 7000 kills legit, and would like to start boosting myself the rest of the way there. I'm nervous that if I start playing again on the Xbox one, and not the 360, that it may nullify the achievement. Anyone have any idea if this is the case? I'm probably just being paranoid, but better safe than sorry on this one.

    RainleafWe triple box , had the dummy account 9 games get disconnected but we continue anyway, the achievement pop for both of us on 10,000 kills so it seems it did not matter if my dummy disconnected. Also my partner always did the grenade kills at the end so it counted as a kill for me for sure.

    Inferno118Quad boxed with zero people ever lagging out and always did a 1 round at end of sessions. My partner is at 10,700 kills rn with no luck and I’ve just hit my 10k. Hope everything pops soon enough :/

    To start; as every other solution states. The achievement rarely (Basically never) pops on time. The average for the people I boosted with was right around 11.5k though there have been people with 20+ thousand and still no achievement. I felt the need to write a solution because a friend mentioned to me that he hadn't known how to suicide boost and there was no solution explaining so I figured well; Why not?

    To start just like any other method you get a group of 6 people together and host a 19 round match on War Machine. In order to suicide boost one member from each team must go to their own grenades, the torque bow and the other teams grenades. If you don't know where grenades are they are located they are in the direction of the open part of the map towards troika and such. Depending on which side you spawn they are either directly left or right after leaving the main spawn area past a couple pillars and the torque is on the ground in the middle of a circle just in front of the troika on the lower level. Anyway back to the boosting process. Basically run to your designated spot which again would be your teams grenades , the torque or the opposite grenades and meet up with a member of the opposing team there. Now it's as easy as either pick up and tag / torque or be tagged / torqued and move up to each other so you each get a kill. In some cases the rounds will become unbalanced so one grenade group will have to slow up (If cog are down the locust grenade guy waits and vice versa) and after the other two groups go the locust tags the cog, and the cog can chainsaw / beat down the locus to make sure they win the round. Doing this method you can work on your torque, chainsaw and grenade tag achievements and some people allow weapons to be thrown in the mix. In a near perfect session you can get done right around 20 minutes and earn yourself 37 kills. This is the fastest and most efficient method by far and what most sessions on TA are set up for. The final tip...find some way to entertain yourself while boosting! This can get rather boring and repetitive and it helps to have something to keep your mind off it. Other than that...Happy boosting!

    Agent Cobra 7I can confirim this method really works. I was being tagged most of the time and it unlocked for me at 10,274. Could it be possible it didn't work for Ace because he didn't do a one rounder at the end of each session.

    DiSSNTNGOPiNiONIs there any way to see how many kills I have? I see people saying they got it to pop after “x” kills, but I can’t find stats in game

    Also, if I move from my X360 to my X1X will I run the risk of starting my kill count from scratch?
