Seeing as im the type to want to rather progress and earn an achievement like this from lvling instead of taking quick to get methods such as the respec method. This guide is to other players like me or anyone that wants to know how to actually earn ego points to use on perks.

Guide -

First off you only gain an ego point to use on perks when you completely fill the xp bar which is located at the bottom of the screen by a thin bar located under your currently in use weapon box and spans all the way to the opposite side of the screen under the chat box. Each time you fill the bar fully you will be greeted with a ego lvl up which raises your ego lvl by 10 and adds one ego unit or skill point to be used on the grid which can be accessed by hitting the start button then RB two times to reach the ego grid.

You will need to fill the bar a total of 75 times to get this achievement totaling 750 ego lvls without pursuits (unless you do the respec way). Pursuit lvls do not reward ego units. This comes to 25 perks upgraded 2 times once unlocked. This will come with time and far

Quick xp -

Playing pvp grants quick xp even when losing can play quick matches of tdm which are available 24/7 for the most part ad well as shadow wars which are available some parts of the day

Pve co-op is a great way to gain xp many of the first one such as liberate the lost and soleptor can be extremely fast to complete and grant a decent amount of xp.

both can be accessed by hitting right on the d-pad and selecting matchmaking.

Random events throughtout the world can be good xp as well but seeing as they are random events they are not the fastest, these include ark falls as well as mini events shown as yellow dots on the mini map and include killing certain enemy's or freeing certain npc's from danger.

Hope this helps anyone that is confused or new to the game like myself the games interface and how everything works was a bit confusing at first. Any suggestions or comments to make this guide better for you are appreciated.
