    The Infection game modes requires a minimum of 4 players to start and play a match. Most people that are playing this under-rated game are usually boosting, using the method described @ x360a.org:

    "The best way to boost this is have the infected player grab a shotgun and stand at the enemy spawn on Court. They only spawn to the left or right of this section so you can kill them almost instantly when they spawn. Taking turns with four players you will net about 100 points every 45 minutes. Setup a 60-min match and have one person get 95-98, then the next, then the next and the last person can finish to 100. Rotate who gets 100 to be fair."

    Once 500 points has accumulated, the cheevo will pop at the end of the match.

    mfeforeverAs it is very fast to set up a new in-game lobby, it makes more sense to have one person get the entire 100 points and then cycle through. This method also limits any impacts disconnections or freezing might have and has the added benefit of making it easy to keep track of your total points earned.

    You will need at least 4 people for boosting.
    Settings should be:
    Mode: Infection
    Map: Court
    Time: 60 minutes
    Players: 4
    Score: 100

    The infected has to run to the human spawn. When he has killed an orange guy it is faster to grab a shotgun for the spawn kills. The 3 humans do not have to do anything.
    There are 2 methods now....:
    1. Every player goes for the full 100 points. So you have to waste some time for hosting new matches. But it is easier to count and if someone lags out you will maybe lose 10minutes.
    2. Every player goes for 97-98 points. You can host less matches and save some time because you are rotating in 1 match.
    Problem: If the host lags out all points are lost. You could waste about 40minutes.

    I prefer the first method. Since x360a posted the second method most of the people doing it that way.

    A match with 4 people takes at least 42-43 minutes. In 3 hours you can get about 400 points. For the full 2000 points (hero achievement) you will need about 15 hours.

    If a player is lagging out after the match has started and it is not the host the kills for the other players will count. You just have to finish the match.

    The infected is worth 3 points, a human 1 point. An assist is worth 1 point as well.

    Have the host (the one with the best connection) set up a 'Ranked Infection' match on 'Mausoleum'. You need a minimum of 4 and maximum of 10 players to do this, but we found 5 or 6 to be preferable. Set the kill limit to 100 and time to 60 mins.

    The person going first should join the match last to start as the Infected, use the refresh option on the custom match search to ensure this.

    Run straight across the map to the human spawn and ignite your Glaive with the fire beacon. The humans should huddle together, then the Infected can kill them all in one fire burst, either up close with cn_RSc or throw the Glaive (hold cn_LT, throw with cn_RT then burst with cn_RSc). Repeat.

    You can either go to the full 100 and restart a new match, or go to 95 then the next player kill the Infected to become infected and go to 95 until everyone has had their turn.

    This method is at least 2 minutes faster per match than Court, Deck or any other map.

    Big thank you to jammiejay85, BiG Neilbug and evilqpa for helping me discover the fastest and most efficient way to boost this.

    I hate it when pricks downvote for no reason whatsoever. This method is tried and tested many times and proved to be the fastest and easiest way possible for this achievement.

    If you have a better way then write a god damn solution instead of dv'ing mine

    Dadmixi preffer your map choice it works well. however setting the clock to 60mins is preferable,30 mins seems to be cutting it fine. adding extra time doesnt hurt,the match ends at 100 points anyway.
