Washington Wizards basketball star Gilbert Arenas has admitted to boosting ... his Halo
score. Arenas confessed
to The Washington Post
that he has been boosting his Halo rank through fake
social matches where he'll end up number one. Arenas says, "It's a glitch in the game. I seen some kids that were like 600s, they won 600 Halo games and we only had that game for two weeks. And all the kids go to school
. So I'm like, 'What the hell you all doing?' And they said that's what they doing, two-on-two."
Arenas' gamertag profile on Bungie.net tells the boosting tale
in great detail. Just to be clear, this is only an artificial boost, since he was manipulating "social" rather than "ranked" matches. His skill rating hasn't improved. Sure, it's silly -- and damn funny -- that the NBA 2K lovin'
Arenas (even though he's the NBA Live
cover athlete) boosted his Halo
score, but at least it shows he cares and worked for his "fake" rank.
