    All Dressed Up and Lifer Achievement Solution

    Exp needed for Rank 8: 793,500
    For all four armors, exp needed is 3,174,000.

    The maximum score/exp you can gain from playing a level is 65,500. I've confirmed this on a few levels on both Hard and Inferno difficulties. Predalien90 in the comments confirms Normal has the same cap. 65K is attainable with patience along with any spawn nests, hills, or drop ships.

    If grinding to max score from the start of a class, you would need to play ~12.1 levels, or 48 (plus a bit) total sessions for all armors.

    Score/exp on Normal, Hard and Inferno for regular spawning enemies. (If score/exp on Normal is X, Hard is X*3, and Inferno is X*9.)
    Ticks: 1, 3, 9
    Ants: 5, 15, 45
    Spiders: 6, 18, 54
    Gunships: 6, 18, 54
    Metal Ants: 7, 21, 63
    Metal Spiders: 8, 24, 72

    Some good grinding spots.
    The Cube: Level 2-5. Towards the end, before you fight the four elite "bosses", there is a crater with two broken silos. Here, 3 Metal Ant hills spew out ~15 ants per go. If bored of ants, after you seal off these three, a Metal Spider nest appears, and spawns 16 spiders.

    Invasion Alert: Level 1-1. There are two separate ant hills. The first spawns 6 at a time, the second spawns 12.

    Via Predalien90 in the comments, and Soulrift X on XBL...
    Alternately, if you "speed run" Level 1-1 on Inferno with a higher ranking character and good weapons, you can earn 20K-25K in a short amount of time.

    Myupyon great solution.
    i might want to add, that if you want to power-level a new character, dont bother with reaching more than rank 2, so play 1-1 once in normal. this should give you 2k and you need 1500 to reach rank 2.
    then, you could attempt hard 1-1 two or three times. that should bring you to rank 4. now, you can technically start grinding 1-1 on inferno, given you have good weaponry.

    on the flimsy jet armour i found armachd fearthainn (which is a rank 4 found weapon, so good luck on another armour) to be extremely efficient as rank 4 on 1-1 inferno. also good for farming the second ant-hill.

    tactical should take the MG turret and mines. you can endless farm the second anthill with one turret and three mines set before it, to speed the process up. that way, i upped the outcome for 1-1 on hard from 5-6k to 12k before i got bored and went on to level up.

    i leveled trooper 'normally' through stage progress and didn't play battle yet, so i just powerleveled those two to 5 resp. 4 in just a few hours that way.

    AkkonShinigami Maybe you want to add a new grinding spot. I found the place in 1-4 very good. After leaving the Mechs and blow a whole in the wall there are 3 Ant Hills who spawn don´t know how many Ants plus the final boss wave with just an carrier and some minions is quite easy.

    TomaShevskyNL I'm grinding on 1-1 with the liviticus dobro M on the second ant hill and works great. 65000 in 45 minutes.
