    I made a video showing a great way to earn EXP if you don't want to play multiplayer. I do it on casual in the video and it earns you around 30k per hour, if you do it on insane you'll be able to double that amount.

    Pedle ZelnipI had previously started a document outlining the XP you obtain when earning each different medal. I have now hit level 100, and it would appear that every medal you earn after that point gives only 1000XP (I've earned at least 3 and all have been 1000XP). As such, I can no longer update the spreadsheet with new details so I'm opening it up to the public. Anyone can now go to this document and contribute:


    Please though, don't be a d#!%, contribute only numbers you know are accurate.

    Another tip: Don't accidentally hit the back button during the video. The video skips and you lose the checkpoint. I found out the hard way. Doh!

    While you can get the biggest amount of XP generally from King of the Hill, it also normally takes a little bit longer for those games to complete. It is, however, the best way for lesser skilled players, but this will be for the general Gears player.

    Team Deathmatch has proved to be the winner here for me, OR I would recommend Wingman under the circumstances that 1) You have a partner that communicates and is good with ALL weapons, and 2) You can swallow your pride and use the sawed-off when necessary. Everyone will be different, so find the mode that suits you the best and get to killing.

    General Tips:
    1) This is not Gears of War 1 or 2, so don't go running around with your gnasher and always expect to walk away with a kill. Odds are you will die to a sawed-off regardless if there are level 1's or 40+'s in the room. Play smart.

    2) Quick match games, as opposed to ranked games, seem to have far less sawed-off users for some reason. The XP ratio doesn't seem as high, but if you're a skilled player you can probably tear through opposing teams and gain a ton of experience that way.

    3) Man up (down?) and use the sawed-off if you need to. It has an advantage in almost EVERY close-quarter situation. I know some people will say they've adapted and can kill sawed-off rushers, and I'm not disagreeing. I'm getting to that point... but the amount of players using it is so high that it may be your best options for easy kills/points.

    4) Clicking the in the left stick while aiming at an enemy will spot them. You get assists for this, which earn you pretty much free experience. Putting a couple bullets in someone that gets killed by someone else will also net you assist points, so do these things.

    5) Use executions when you have the opportunity. They give you bonus XP for using them. Just don't get greedy and do it mid-match, leaving yourself open to die.

    I know these facts are somewhat basic, but for those looking at this from an achievement perspective, these are general tips that will also help you get better at the game.

    *Edit - IDK why it is saying I don't have the achievement. I've had it almost a full day and have turned my Xbox off for the night and everything... So yeah!

    I Ebon Hawk II like to think I'm a pretty decent player. I can hold my own comfortably most people in matchmaking, although MLG players give me some trouble. Having tried out all the game modes, I would have to agree that Team Deathmatch in Quick Match is the quickest legit way to gain EXP. I've received up to 8000 EXP from a single match occasionally. The best advice I can give is play smart, utilise teamwork, and try to control the power weapons as much as possible. If I can't pick them up myself, I try to prevent the enemy team from picking them up. A skilled player with the Boomshot, Longshot, Digger or Oneshot can single-handedly decimate an enemy team. Also, when dealing with campers, don't bother trying to rush them. Just wait for them to come to you. This only works as long as everyone on the team adheres to that plan, however.

    I Ebon Hawk IOh, also, don't underestimate the Frag Grenades. Most people are stupid and don't even bother checking for planted grenades. If you press LB, friendly grenades will appear in white, enemy grenades won't. If you see any planted on walls or on the ground, detonate them from a safe distance.

    Tho RadiaI'd like to add a few points, both to the guide and the comments,

    Play the other modes, don't sit and Grind Verses, i've had a hell of a lot of fun just playing Beast, Horde and Arcade barley spending any time in Verses and im 47 at the time of writing this.

    @Ninja Scroll, Sawn off is fine, both names are fine it just depends on where your from (its Sawn off in England and Sawed off in America i believe)
