Boosting is the act of a user speeding up the process of gaining awards or experience in video game, typically a First Person Shooter in an online Multi-Player setting, by using methods that are not supported by the game developers and the online community. These methods include the user having one of his friends joining the opposite team and letting the user kill that friend multiple times to gain experience and kills at a faster rate than normal.
Jeff is on team A and gets his friend John to join team B. John lets Jeff kill him repeatedly so that John can "Level-up" faster. Jeff is "boosting" because John is helping him "boost" his level and statistics.
