    I thought I would take the time to make a quick little video for the 2 player, satchel tossing method of boosting due to the fact that trying to explain where to stand in words can be kind of confusing.

    Just to rehash what's been said before -

    * Number of Players - 2
    * Game Type - TDM
    * Map - Hospital
    * Enable Friendly Fire
    * Disable Private Game
    * Time Limit - Your choice

    1 person on each team, both players choose the Soldier class. Both players choose the Flamethrower as their weapon. Both players have unlocked the extended reach for the flamethrower (keeps the killer from dying) and the extra satchel unlocks (saves time on satchel reloading).

    1 person is designated the Killer, 1 person designated the Dummy.

    The Dummy runs to the corner of the desks at the bottom of the center room stairs, as shown in the video, and plants a satchel charge but does not detonate it. The killer plants a satchel charge in the same spot (careful not to bump the other guys satchel out of place) and then backs off to a safe distance (I look at the blue tile line on the floor as a distance gauge) and kills the dumby using the flamethrower. Once the Dummy falls to the ground you hit Y to detonate the satchels, earning you roughly $650 a kill.

    The killer then runs in, picks up the ammo and replaces his satchel charge and runs back to his killing spot while the Dummy returns to his dying spot and replaces his satchel and the process repeats.

    You should average 30-35 kills every 10 minutes, which will earn about $20,000 - $22,000 for the person doing the killing. Would probably take about 5 hours, per person, to go from rank 1 to 50.

    Only the person killing will earn any money, therefore you need to switch off killing with your partner taking turns killing.

    Using the above method will net you the rank 25 and 50 achievements, the 200 flamethrower kill achievement and the map achievement for winning on Hospital.

    Hope this video clears up some of the confusion as to where to stand. Enjoy.

    I am adding Hitman Marko's solution to mine, at his request, as he is deleting his old Account that was associated with his solution. He found the original boosting method that influenced the solutions after it, and feels it is only right that it still exists on here."

    Original Solution By Hitman Marko

    The previous solutions require 3 people. My solution only requires 2. Ok heres what you need to do:
    - Choose Hospital
    - Put it on Team Deathmatch
    - Match duration 10 mins (You can do this in sets of 30 mins if you wish but your internet could go off and you would lose all your gold and 30 mins is really boring)
    - Both players be the soldier class and select the flamethrower
    - Purchase Pump Override ($500) for the flamethrower - this increases the weapon's range
    - The person whos getting gold first be on the axis team because you get loads of money while on axis
    - Kick any unwanted players from the match
    Step 1: Both players go to the staircase with the file cabinet below it.
    Step 2: Both players place a satchel charge near the file cabinet.
    Step 3: The person on resistance stands on top of the satchel charges then the axis person steps away and burns the resistance guy and as soon as the resistance is dead blow up your satchel charge but stand back from it (thats why i recommend buying the pump override for extra range on the flamethrower)
    Step 4: Repeat the previous steps until the 10 mins is over then let the other person do it for 10 mins.
    Keep doing this and you will have rank 50 in no time. I hope my solution helps and good luck. This worked for me and my friend so you should have no problems doing it.

    EDIT: THIS METHOD IS ACTUALLY FASTER THAN THE PREVIOUS ONES AS YOU CAN EARN BETWEEN $10,000-$20,000 IN 10 MINUTES.

    EDIT 2: Sorry I forgot to mention, put friendly fire on, for some reason you get more money, thanks for the reminder people in the comments.

    JAGERMEISTER TXIt's possible your positioning is slightly off. The game is really picky about this little glitch/bug in score.

    Scorpionxx0I find that using this method with only 2 people rarely grants the 600+ gold pay. We put our satchels almost exactly where the video had it but it still only netted us close to 400. The only time I was getting the 650 gold was when I had 3 on the flamethrower guys side & 1 on the the designated death side.

    LethalTurkey7Just getting back to boosting this and I have found that you receive more points when the player (The one who gets killed) has their back turned. I've found that you can do the double satchel method and it does net you $650 per kill. You can do it anywhere (I prefer in the centre of the map next to the chairs). As long as your partners back is turned from you, the more money you will get.

    *I had to re-write this due to some issues.

    I say do it with 7 people to be most effective. Killer on Axis and all others on Resistance anymore and you will end up with 2 people on the Axsis and that second person won't benifit as much.

    Set up the match like this:
    TEAM DEATH MATCH
    TEAM BALANCING: OFF
    MAP: HOSPITAL
    FRIENDLY FIRE: ON

    It should be the Hospital, due to the small map size and also other maps don't seem to give you as much money.

    Get your 7 people together and put 6 on the Resistance on this is the team that will be dying. Have all members of the Resistance throw down a satchel charge right at thier feet. Then, just blow them up with your satchel. (no need ot kill them with your gun). You should net your self clsoe to 2000 or 3000 gold every time you kill the group.. It may or may not help if their backs are toward you, this goes for battle awarness. (thing about this is I did find it to work, but you need to leave the area and re-enter after about 5-10 seconds.. which would not be too benificial.)

    You do not have to be by the stair case as mentioned in other solutions we did it on the opposite side of the stated starcase and it still works. THE KEY TO THIS IS THAT EVERYONE MUST THROW A SATCHEL CHARGE AND FRIENDLY FIRE MUST BE ON!

    *Edited at the request of TA (see comments)

    B8TINGURecently, one of your achievement solutions was reported due to plagiarism. This link should help you identify which one may be involved;

    Solution for Das Big Man in Wolfenstein

    It wasn't plagiarism I sited the person's original solution and even gave him due credit for it right IN the solution (Like so many solutions here on TA)..and I did it multiple times. All I did was added a few things to it and tweeked it a bit.. like so many of the solutions.

    pla·gia·rism [pley-juh-riz-uhm, -jee-uh-riz-]
    –noun
    1.the unauthorized use or close imitation of the language and thoughts of another author and the representation of them as one's own original work.

    Again I would like to point out that I did not use this wording as MY own and am a bit offened by that accusation, not by you, but by whom ever was iggnorant enough to say such a thing.
    Posted by B8TINGU on 20 Aug 10 at 14:29
    B8TINGUI have completly re-writen my solution and only kept wording in which I used. Though ultimatly it doesn't matter beause I believe the top solution is by Markostenio now, as he seems to have found the fastest and most effective way of doing this.
    Posted by B8TINGU on 20 Aug 10 at 14:53
    mzivtinsB8TINGU... im now reporting you for... TREASON. BWWAAAAAHAHAHA what sad git to either complain that a new solution was posted and to even report it a plagiarism.

    Good solution, well written, thumbs up deserved.

    This is a variation of the solutions already posted.

    When trying with the solutions on TA we were only getting $300 at most. What we found worked best was to go into the center of the courtyard and find the 2 benches back to back almost in the very middle of the map. Go to the end of them nearest the tree.

    Now :
    1: The killer puts a satchel charge down at the end of the bench and moves to a safe distance,
    2: The person being killed runs in and stands on the charge facing the benches with his back to the person killing
    3: The killer starts shooting the other person with the flamethrower
    4: When the person being killed health drops down to just under half through your satchel charge down onto the satchel charge already placed. (The lower your health is when you drop the charge the more gold will be given)
    5: By now you should have shoot them with your flamethrower enough that they are unconscious, blow up the satchel charge this should net around $650

    The benefit we found of using this spot in the middle of the map was that no matter where you spawned you didn't have far to go saving some time.

    NOTE: this solution was found after the patch was applied to the game

    Hope this helps and if you are going to leave negative feedback please state why so i can improve the solution.

    Thanks goes to Darken81 for his help

    Dropkick Hope86I don't know to be honest.

    Jennitiger1138just wanna add that that stand in front of the tree (ie with back to bench) that is by the single bench rather than the 2 back to back ones (tried it there and only had 300 or so) tho for some reason my boosting buddy only managed $500 whils i netted $650 regardless of which of us was host or side we were on (axis or resistance), we have no explanation for the marked difference in gold as we both did exactly the same thing, also we used the MP43, as you can run faster, we tried the flamethrower it made no difference to $ made, throw satchel charge at the wall while running up to be shot, we could get 40 kills in per 10 min match so up to $24k, we also tried it with 2 people being killed but worked out its not quite as fast overall (around $45k but 3 player rotation is slower)

    KJer25^^^ Wish I could give Jennitiger a +1, bc this is the best setup and solution.
