Note: While I'm flattered by those who come to me for help, I can't continually drop what I'm playing/doing to do so. So please do not message me asking me to set up a boosting session with you. If you have a question about the method itself, feel free to leave a comment.

Note 2: The experience multiplier is now permanently 4x. The math was awful to begin with due to my timing-fails, so I won't try and update that. Just know that it is now 4x instead of 2x. Things should go twice as fast now.

With the recent addition of Social Matches this is now much easier.

First, get 2 groups of 5 together in 2 different parties. They can be 5 real people, or you can have some guests logged in. Either works just fine.

Have both teams matchmake into Social King Of The Hill. Be sure to make everyone on both teams a preferred player, that way you have a higher chance of being matched up.

Most already running matches don't have 5 slots open on one team, so it will most likely start you in a new match with your team and 5 bots. Then the other team, looking for 5 open slots, will have a high chance of getting in. If not, then just leave and try again.

Just keep matchmaking and quitting until you get all 10 people together in a match. Then do the following.

Have team 1 and team 2 meet at the hill. Neither go in until both are there. Then team 1 will step in, capture the hill, and as soon as the 200 capture points are awarded to the players in the hill, all the members from team 2 will step into the hill, breaking the capture, getting 50 points each, and allowing the hill to be captured again. Do this over and over.

When team 1 gets to 119 points stop. Swap team 2 into the hill, repeat the entire process. When both teams have 119 end the round by letting one win. Then the next round, repeat the same process, except the team that lost the first round should now be the winner. Doing this allows for 3 rounds per match.

You must get 120 capture points to win the rounds.

200 points per capture x 120 capture points to win the round = 24000.

50 points per "break" x 119 "breaks" = 5950

5950 + 24000 = Nearly 30,000 points per round (rounded from 29,950). And thats if you don't kill someone, which happens from time to time.

30,000 x 3 = 90,000

King of the Hill gives 50% EXP back of what your score is.

EX: You score 1000 points, you get 500EXP.

So if you score 90,000 you get 45,000 EXP back.

Thats right. 45,000 exp PER MATCH.

Each match takes about 40 minutes. Social just does endless matches with no further matchmaking. Going through each map alphabetically.

The total EXP required to reach LvL 100 is 6,825,825.

If anyone has questions, or I wasn't clear on something, just shoot me a message. Here or on XboxLive.

I have used this method only once, and for a short while. After nearly every match I leveled up (I was 50 to start, got to 53).

Fixed mistakes
Boosted more during the 6X XP week, I went from 57 to 85 in 2 days.

Got my Wings during the 20x XP event. If you still need this achievement I would recommend you do it now.

Again, people seem to think that I have the time and ability to help everyone. Please stop messaging me via live for help in setting up a boosting session. There are plenty of people to join up with. Use TA to create a session if you need to. Whatever works. Just don't get your hopes up if you decide to ask me to boost with you.

I haven't seen anyone post a CronusMax script for ring boosting yet. So, with a 10-year delay, here is my script.

Have 4-5 people in the ring. Place a dummy from the other team just outside the ring and rubber band the Y button. This will make him run in and out of the ring indefinitely, breaking the ring every 3.8sec. I have boosted this with xDEADxRlSlNGx manually first, but this is so much easier! You set up the boost and let it auto-run for 6min.

You get around 15,000-20,000 points per round (7min incl loading). So, 130,000-170,000/hour with minimal effort on your part (depends on exact positioning of dummy in front of the ring).

main {
if(get_val(XB360_Y)) {

combo Turbo_1 {
set_val(PS4_LY, -400);
set_val(PS4_LY, 400);
set_val(XB360_X, 0);
It can certainly be perfected by playing around with the millisecond wait-time values. But it is tedious work. This works very well though.

(P.S.: Yes, I know some of the button inputs say PS4, but it works with XBox. For some reason my Cronus thinks my XOne controller is a PS4 controller.)
