20 Quickest Ways To Boost Your Gamerscore

Suffering from low Gamer Score blues?

Suffering from Game Score envy? All your mates racking up points by the thousandfold, while your paltry efforts are barely worth a mention? Scared to even connect to Xbox Live in case you're mocked in the street? Well never fear, as our good friends over at OXM have the answer with some quick 'n dirty - not to mention occasionally naughty - ways to radically improve your Gamer Score and convince people you are indeed an Xbox 360 Ninja! So without further ado, take it away fellas...



1. GET SOMEONE GOOD TO PLAY GEOMETRY WARS FOR YOU
It only takes one good go. One crazy piece of high-focus square avoidance and you've bagged something like 120 points in ten minutes. Survive to 500,000 points without dying, pass the several scoring milestones along the way and collect nine extra lives. Sounds easy written like that, but it actually takes months of practice. So, like when the plumbing breaks, get a professional in. Someone to do it properly and in a fraction of the time.
POINTS EARNED: 120
TIME TAKEN: Ten minutes (if you're good)

2. CHEAT A LITTLE BIT IN FIGHT NIGHT: ROUND 3
The game's dead simple, with only eight achievements, all unlocked by winning the special challenge bouts as you pound through the Career game. If you go to the options screen and stop the game punishing you for doing illegal blows, you can put it on Easy, headbutt and elbow your opponent into a swift submission, and fly through the entire Career game in a couple of moderately heavy evenings. Yes it's cheating and we know it's a brilliant game that you should play properly - but if you're stuck for time it's a good way to get 1,000 points in a hurry.
POINTS EARNED: 1,000
TIME TAKEN: Six hours

3. RIP TONY HAWK TO PIECES
If you have any 'legacy' Tony Hawk skills, put them to good use in American Wasteland. Playing on Classic mode, you can tear through the recreated levels from previous games amazingly quickly, completing goals and nabbing points. You get 30 points for completing 30 goals, another 30 when you hit 40, and 30 more when you do 50 Classic goals. Complete them all for another 50 points. That's maybe going a bit far, so just get up to 50. It's easy if you know how to do manuals and reverts and all that stuff. Another 300 are on offer for Xbox Live play - 10 each time you play a level online for the first time, plus 10 for setting a high score in each zone offline. Easy.
POINTS EARNED: 390
TIME TAKEN: Four hours

4. DO SOME ONLINE TIGER WOODS
You get 15 points for just taking part in five online tournaments. Even if you lose and mess around and spoil it for everyone else while not taking it seriously. If you try hard and win those five online matches, you rack up another 25. Which shouldn't take that long. Everyone knows how to play Tiger Woods, right?
POINTS EARNED: 40
TIME TAKEN: Two hours

5. BREATHE GENTLY AND DEEPLY WHILE PLAYING BATTLEFIELD
Kill four enemies with one sniper rifle clip and 20 points are yours. How easy is that? Then kill 20 enemies with grenades for another 20, do in four with a knife for 20 more, kill ten with a vehicle for another 20, and, well, just keep killing lots of things with specific weapons in each mission, and the points will come flying in.
POINTS EARNED: 140
TIME TAKEN: Two hours

6. PLAY THE FIRST FIVE LEVELS OF GUN
It's a bit boring and rubbish, but easy to plough through. You get points for beating levels on the Regular difficulty setting, so there's about 80 points to be had before you get bored of the Bland West, and the pain of continuing outweighs the reward in points.
POINTS EARNED: 80
TIME TAKEN: Two hours
