    This is an expansion to "DarkVVind"'s solution

    To expand on 2-1, the fastest I've done that level is 3:10 with a jet w/ pesticide for roughly 20k on inferno. Here's a summary. (It seems long and wordy, but once you try it a few times, it is easy.)

    1. Go the right of where the tank will spawn. Wait for ants to spawn (Ops ends a sentence with "inbound"), then target the top gray trim of a brown building (right next to the white building on the corner.) That should take them all out.
    2. Aim up/right for the carrier, shoot, and both should go down.
    3. Jet toward lander, activate, activate.
    4. Jet toward the next objective. Once you hit the river/ravine, turn around and snipe the the Hector.
    5. Jet toward objective, ignoring everything in the way (they will hide once you get there).
    6. Jump up on the "ledge"/ raised area behind the objective/crew. Turn around and look at the building that the ants are on. Snipe the top portion of building and that should get them all.
    7. More will spawn behind that building you just blew up. Blow all of them up too.
    8. Start jetting to the left, and once they are all gone, a mass will appear on the right. Zap them (either shoot an ant, or the white building on the left of the ants).
    9. Then spiders should be popping up around you, go up the street at the gas station, toward the ravine.
    10. Turn around, shoot a building to kill a wave a spiders.
    11. There is another wave of spiders, take care of them.
    12. A mess of spiders and a bomber-spider spawn. Snipe the wave on the left first while they are together, then get the bomber-spider.
    13. Snipe the last spider wave.

    Notes:
    -AI is useless, so don't need them.
    -My secondary weapon was the skillet just in case there was a straggler.
    -It takes a while to figure out the blast radius; be patient.
    -This is also good if you want to boost a secondary profile. They can live or die, and they are guaranteed 9720 xp. (In fact, I boosted 3 classes to level 7 while earning my money.)

    eohjayI've been using a slightly modified version of this during local couch co-op with another friend trying to get these achievements. It works great - we can regularly finish the level in 3 minutes or less. One of us is always the Jet and we pretty much park ourselves on the building behind the initial spawn points and snipe everything while P2 spawns them and hits the objectives.

    P2 as a Jet is pretty fast and triggering objectives - but we tend to like P2 being the Battle and just popping the shield up during genocide blasts for safety. It allows them to sit on the extraction point while the last wave is killed to trigger it faster.

    The spawns can be somewhat random, but it's easy enough to improvise as it's all very similar. We're only about halfway there, and only play local couch co-op, so we've got a ways to go still.

    R06U3Definitely seems like the best way to earn credits for active playing.. somewhere between 240k - 480k per hour, depending on how quick you are...

    I would also personally recommend playing with a friend...

    It took me nine days of fairly heavy grinding to get this final achievement after already being at 49/50 achvs on this game.

    After doing everything else in the game you'll still need roughly 5 million credits to buy every gun for all four armours. An average level will give you 25k for roughly ten minutes so you're looking at 200 runs.

    My method was to pick a level I felt comfortable beating. Either 1-2 or 3-2 (with AI, they need healing all the way through the level but are useful at the end of each of those levels) were my choices as they have little in the way of air attackers. I always picked my Tier 8 battle armour and gave him the Pesticide Mortar and a homing rocket weapon.

    My best piece of advice isn't that though. This achievement takes ages so to stop yourself going mad, break it down into sub-tasks. I started by clearing all the 250,000CR weapons first. Once that was done, I felt like I'd really dented the achievement.

    Then do the 175,000s. Once I'd cleared the 97,500s I knew I had broken the back of this achievement. Carry on taking out everything in that fashion until the 37,500s are done. Then I just cleared out the remaining weapons of each type in each class.

    It doesn't make it go any quicker but it does give you a structure to follow.

    Guirec730Seems like fair advice to me. +1 to fight the haters.

    BiggieD99I agree with THE JRIDE, but I do it slightly differently. I pick the Battle Armour with the homing rockets (two volleys of two, with fast recharge) and go to stage 1-2. The last part is where you make the money.
    Rubber band around both triggers so he has the shield up whilst firing the rockets.You need to manually go and destroy the first ant hill and move him to the final section with three anthills. Take out the first and run away immediately to safety where you can rubber band again to take out the ships and begin killing the constant stream of ants from both ant hills (the problem with having just one anthill is that there's a pause when it inevitably gets sealed - with two one is usually still open).
    Remember there is a limit of around 65k per level, so finish the stage and go again.

    OverkillChaosI don't know what kind of dick heads would give this a negative vote but I was basically doing what you were doing start by getting the heavy hitters out of the way first.

    If you don't want to rubber band grind this, the best place I have found for points per minute is 2-1.

    I have been able to use my trooper with pesticide and finish the level in around 7 minutes for about 20k points.

    Still working towards this I have found that 2-4 "Hectored" is also very good points per minute.

    With the Jet and Pesticide I could get 14k in about 4 minutes.

    Danky1227using the jet class can knock off a minute or 2. and nice solution. autorunning it does get redundant. +1
