How many Gamertags does it take to boost?

Gaming Chat

Found 18 posts - Go to Last Post


I would like to create a quick reference list of games that shows exactly how many gamers are needed to boost.

Including games with servers that have been shut down and/or are no longer available to buy on XBLA ARCADE.*

Including DLC not available to purchase*.

*I will only list games and/or DLC that have achievements that are effected by shut downs.

*Games with known glitched achievements, which no tracked gamer can achieve legit. will be noted as such and may be listed separate.

Games with the servers shut down.
*This list is only concerned with the service that affects achievements. Meaning: That even though games like MADDEN NFL 06, THE SIMPSONS GAME or THE GODFATHER servers have been shut down this only effect game play, leaderboards and or co-op play for that game. Since there are no online achievements tied to those games they will not be listed. Same for PC games with achievements.

For a listing of all EA games with servers shut down:
EA Service-updates

I'll start this and would like as much help as possible. I will continue to update it, as much as I can with any contributions.

Games listed as total number needed to complete the game to 100%. EXAMPLE: CONFLICT: DENIED OPS needs 16 gamers minimum, all on separate accounts for just one achievement, yet all the rest of the achievements (ranked or otherwise) can be done with only two gamers and one with three. This game will only then appear in the 16 game section, but will have a note attached.

This list includes any DLC so if the game originaly only required 2 gamers present and DLC was released that now requires 4 then the game will be moved to 4 gamers needed.

(R) designates Ranked if no (R) then Ranked matches are not needed.

The below listed games will require that many separate consol's:
EXAMPLE: 2 gamers need will mean you will need 2 separate consol's. Also Note: Extra controlers may be needed.



If you find any inaccuracy in these list please let me know. I am going mainly by my own experinces but as I have yet to play ALL these games I am going with help from other gamers. So please if you have any helpful information please let me know. This list though I feel is at least 99% accurate.

For stackable games:

the first DiRT game didn't use GfWL, but 2 and 3 still do and are stackable (until it closes / converted to steamworks I guess).

DiRT 2 (PC & X360 versions both have unobtainables due to racenet being closed for these games too)

F1 2011 (PC) is also GfWL and stackable
Test Drive: Ferrari Racing Legends is also stackable on PC & X360

For boosting (17+)
Moto GP 09/10 & Moto GP 10/11 both have an achievement that requires a race win on a full grid (host + 19 others)

It does however have an unobtainable achievement - Nothing more can challenge me.
