***Servers for this game were closed down April 13th, 2012 but have been temporarily reinstated. It is unclear how long this will last so quickly finish the online achievements like this one now while you have another chance!***

Original solution - To get this achievement as fast as possible, follow these steps:

1. Create a 1 or 2 second clip (the shorter it is, the less time it takes to download) and share it.

2. Make a fake Silver or Gold account and add it to your real account's friends list.

3. Sign in to your fake account and view your friend's clips.

4. When the clip is finished downloading but before it actually starts playing, go to the Xbox guide and sign out. You should now be booted back to the Burnout starting screen.

5. Simply sign back in with your second account and repeat until your real account's clip is in the top 20.

6. After you're there, sign in with your real account and go to the top 20 clips. *You should now unlock your achievement!

And remember, the leaderboards for the top 20 reset every month on the 25th. If you're going to try and get this achievement, you'll save a lot of time doing it right after they reset.
Elem3ntal80Nice solution! I did it on the 26th of this month and only needed 5 downloads to get in the top 20.

StonedkillPhishWorked Great!!!!!!!!!!!! Need 5 downloads for top 20 on the 30th thanks

DaShAgNeeded 1 download on the 26th so it still works. Do note that the leaderboards reset on the 26th but perhaps that's due to my time zone, which is Central European Time ( GMT +1 )

KillerGreenBud3Just Confirmed May 29 2011, 8 DL's to put me in the top 5 ^_^ Big Thumbs UP!!!

LearFoolNice solution. One tip that you can add is it doesn't matter if you view the clip when downloading with the second account. I got distracted nearing my last download and it played the clip but it kept incrementing the counter for the subsequent ones. It just saves time if you don't view the clip.

XexyzStill working in September 2011 - requiring 4 views for the top 20.

InundatedDadGonna be a rush for this one now with the servers going offline next month.

troyoyView friends clip dont save it. After it is 100% downloaded and is loading eject the disc and reinsert or dash board. I got a friend loggin off and on 25 times in a row and its not needed. Dont watch the clip either, it may screw up this little glitch. Big thumbs up.
Posted by troyoy on 15 Mar 12 at 00:58
troyoyEject the disc before it starts playing. As of March 15th you are gonna need 25 views to get in the bottom of the top 20. Once you are in the top 20 go and view the top 20 for the cheev to pop. Clip must download 100% for it to count. I just tried twice ejecting early.

MickeyTI'm glad EVERYONE got there achievement, but all the people over the last two weeks that have got into the top 20. Are not UNSHARING there clip so the downloads get higher, meaning it's harder for everyone else, and alot of the top 20 are people from TA, but there not UNSHARING, but hey you got your achievement so that's all that matters right?!?!?!?

PS. I have the achievement but it's getting harder to help others that need it!!

If your one of the people that have not Unshared please do that now, thanks
