The only problem with boosting is when you ruin the game experience for other players.



If you wanna private match glitch I don't really care. What does it serve? So you can get 10th prestige with fall camos and all the emblems/titles?



Okay, if you get all that, then what next? You get to show off all your leet gear and titles while you get single-digit kills five matches in a row, then quit?





but boosting a pro perk maybe once or twice doesn't really affect anybody and its nothing like the 10th prestige idiots







Like I said, if you take time to boost, you aren't playing the game. Therefore, you can be boosted to the gills, but you haven't been playing real matches and you'll probably have your ass handed to you.

In general boosting is lame and pretty much cheating. Having said that.....



Go to cage match and do whatever you want to. Just keep it out of public matches with more than one player on each team. i guess it is not a team if it is only one person, but you get what I am saying. I have problems with and will hunt them down for boosting in non cage match matches, which is a lot unfortunately.



As long as your ill gotten KS rewards aren't a nuisance in FFA and team based matches I am choosing not to worry about it.



Of course my way of thinking leaves open thoughts and opinions about people using Pro Perks gotten from boosting even in cage matches during team based games like DoM or TD









agreed....IMO Cage Match Boosting is ok.....just don't ruin other folks fun bu Nuke boosting or Boosting in regular games. If the do start boosting find them and tube them. I have a tube class made up of tubes on scar and thumper with danger Close. just need to get in the area of them and you will Ruin there day

no 3rd person boosting is not bad, dont listen to these idiots tell you otherwise. they spend their time on a forum complaining about everything irrevelant to them. as long as you dont hinder anyone elses game experience you are doing nothing wrong. freedom is there for you as long as you dont not encroach on anyone elses freedom.

Wait... you ACTUALLY CARE if somebody boosts for some artwork on their gun, or for, as an example, SitRep Pro?



I can picture you now as being that giant d-nozzle talking major crap to everyone in the lobbies you enter, saying how "legit" you are. Remember, it's a VIDEO GAME, and someone having Fall camo on their weapon is the LEAST of your problems in the game.





Also, for SitRep Pro, many people believe that it will be similar to a Turtle Beach (is that what it's called?) headset as far as hearing enemies goes, but it is not really THAT amazing. If you want to hear the game sounds, plug a set of headphones into your TV (most TV's can allow this).

The only perk that I can see boosting for is site rep pro.



I say this for two reasons:



One, 120 claymores is a lot to destroy to obtain the Pro version of the perk that really (two) has nothing to do with what it takes to obtain it.



Why do I have to destroy 120 enemy explosives to hear differently?



If you play certain game modes, SnD or TDM perhaps you will run into a lot of claymores.



I play mostly FFA and I am lucky if I see 120 claymores between lvl 37 (when Sit Rep unlocks) and lvl 70 (when it is time to prestige if I desire.)



There have been many threads about Sit Rep Pro and many who feel that 120 is too high for the pro. I agree; but others do not. And that is OK.

Everything you get while boosting you can get by just playing. I have the fall camo on 1 gun and when I got it I got it LEGIT. And personally I would feel like an idiot if I got it any other way other than just PLAYING THE GAME. But I guess thats just me all you other queens that think its ok can go f yourselves. But whatever makes you feel better. keep on flaming, keep on saying its cool.

Anytime you achieve something in any game, not just video games, pro-sports(steroids), board games, cheating at card games....anytime you achieve something through fraudulent means it hurts the integrity of the game and can even hurt peoples feeling.



Category 1-There are those who play sports, video games, whatever...to be the best and play with honesty and integrity because they care about the record they have.



Category 2-There are those who without conscience, cheat, hack, boost, mod, steal, glitch and subvert the system to make themselves appear to be something they are not. Or they do it simply because they can.



Is boosting really that bad? Only you can answer that question. If your in category 1--yes it is bad even if it is just boosting a perk. If your in category 2--why do you care, you made your choice to get something that you know wasn't earned with honor.
