There are 6 core skills;
- Sprint
- Endurance
- Battle Readiness
- Assault Rifle Handling
- Assault Rifle Training
- Tactical Awareness

Each skill can be upgraded up to rank 10 and you start out with one rank. To allocate core skill points, choose the "Player Progress" main menu option. To gain skill points you will need to complete missions or Fireteam Engagements. Depending on how well you do you will gain medals. Depending on the medal colour you will gain up to three points which are cumulative per mission and do not stack. The following table gives the requirements to get a gold medal on campaign missions.

You will always get bronze if you succeed the mission, silver if you also complete all secondary objectives which must be accomplished before tackling the main objective they are posted under. To see the objective hierarchy, press start during the missions. Completing the main objective will result in all uncompleted secondary objectives to fail. In some rare cases, secondary objectives are times and rely on scripted events. In those cases it is usually sufficient to pay close attention to orders and not rush ahead.

To get a gold medal and the maximum of points you will need to complete all secondary objectives and complete the mission in a certain time frame. Here are the time frames in minutes. Times were compiled based on personal experience and those of a few friends.

For Fireteam Engagements the requirements are slightly different. There is a score threshold you need to reach in addition to completing the mission.

Combat Sweep
Remember that you get a score multiplier depending on how fast you are. You will see the multiplier on your lower left hand HUD if you have the HUD enabled.

Last Stand
Remember that you have to evacuate once you have reached the target score for it to count. If you fail the mission all score is lost.

Once you have gotten gold on every campaign mission and Fireteam Engagement, allocate all points and confirm to unlock the achievement.
