    Nearly the only way to achieve this is by boosting because it requires at least 4 people. Set the kill limit to 100 and time to the max. The Infected simply camps the spawn while the humans go do something else. When the infected gets to 97 one of the humans kills him. Never go to 99 becuase the infected can get a point from being killed or something. Anyway repeat until the last person goes and have him end the match.

    Note: it is important that the infected pays attention to how many points he has and doesnt end the game b4 everone has gone.

    Hexa FoxRespectfully you guys (mfeforever and sm182) have no clue what you are talking about. It is way faster to rotate the players in the match. Believe it or not as of 7/20/13 there are still a couple randoms here to make it a little more difficult. Also do the math.

    If it takes two minutes (very generous) to do each match and you have four people to cycle through that is at least 80 games.That is three hours and twenty minutes (3:20) that you have wasted setting up games. Plus everyone has to make sure that they are there every ten minutes.

    Even if you are "double boxing" it like a lot of people do you are looking at about an hour and a half (1:30). So in this time watching loading screens and getting everyone in to ready up to start the game you could have easily used that time to complete a few games of rotating in all four players in the same match.... I am doing it right now and believe me you do not want to add an extra crap-ton of boosting,

    mfeforeverWell since the load time is minimal compared to the potential game time lost. Proper risk management to mitigate lost time for connection issues, power outages, etc. says it is a good investment of time. Never claimed it was the absolute fastest, but likely so as someone is bound to have issues.
    That is the wonderful about site like this people can make their own choices!

    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.

    sm182Just thought I add that you need 2000 POINTS, not KILLS. If you kill an infected player you get 3 points.

    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 30 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 for 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.

    Big Killa C+1 from me, works great!

    IcarusPain+1 Works faster. Recorded 5 minute rounds with 4 plus people. Right clicking the glaive is faster if the spawners are huddling as they spawn, into the middle where the two giant doors are. The explosion is large enough to kill almost everyone. Also if people are not sure where to huddle, the middle landing just before the stairs is perfect.

    evilqpaIt's crutial to wait until the counter runs down and then leave, also the host always leaves last, just to be on the safe side.
