    For this you just need to get each of the A.C.E.S to level 20.

    For Marksman you need to get headshots, kill rapelling enemies or kill enemies from a distance, I find the easiest one for Marksman is kill from a distance as you can shoot them anywhere in the body, if they die you get the marksmen points.

    Also - For the marksman, you could add that playing Killhouse on Realistic with Low density enemies is good for some rope kills. Go up the stairs to the right of your spawn to the top of the building. Go to the right side and hold the left trigger to get against the crates. Your AI teammates will be able to get most hostiles coming from below and in the building. You can just watch the rope in front of you (face towards the opposite building) and pick off several terrorists that climb the rope.
    Thanks go to - Smeds o -

    For C.Q.B. The easiest by far to get points in. The easiest way is getting kills in a close distance, just run up to enemies, shotgun in the face and bam, you have the points. This one isn't difficult at all, the other easiest way is killing an enemy from behind which is very self explanatory.

    For Assault: If you go onto terrorist hunt, realistic difficulty on Presidio, have gadgets Smoke grenade and C4. Turn to the left and theres a car with 2 crates against the far wall (not the main building) Put C4 down between these crates, go up to wall of the building, crouch against it facing the C4 and throw a smoke grenade down to obscure yourself from view. (turn on thermal vision) Wait about 10 seconds and 7 enemies run onto the C4, you then detonate it getting lots of easy Assault points. This 100% works and is easiest way I found to get assault points...Anyone has any problems getting this to work or getting locations wrong please message me and ill help.

    Edit: Also just wanted to point out there are a few other ways to get points in each A.C.E but the ways I have listed are the ways that I found easiest.

    HolyHalfDeadThe points you get for each kill depend on how you got the kill and the difficulty/game type. On Rookie difficulty most kills are only worth +1 point. On Realistic some of the kills are worth +3 points. On Versus however you can earn up to +5 points per kill.

    +5 - Kill at long range
    +5 - Kill an opponent using a rope
    +4 - Kill while using a rope
    +4 - Kill a sprinter
    +2 - Headshot

    +5 - Kill using blind fire
    +5 - Kill a visually impaired opponent
    +5 - Kill an opponent from behind
    +4 - Kill at short range

    +5 - Kill through cover
    +5 - Kill using C4
    +4 - Kill using explosives
    +4 - Kill a turret-gunner
    +4 - Kill a shielded opponent

    For Easy A.C.E. Points for Assault

    I started with what Mighty Shogun said and came up with this strategy:

    1. Play Presidio on Realistic with High Enemies
    2. You'll start in front of some double doors by a truck.
    3. Run to the next set of double doors to your left.
    4, Throw C4 4ft in front of door. (Do this quickly an enemy will open the door.)
    5. Back up to the wall across from the doors and throw a smoke grenade at your feet.
    6. Turn on thermal vision.
    7. The grenade blast will attract 7 enemies who will stand outside the door on top of your C4.
    8. Boom!!!
    9. Run to the far doors on the right side of the building and repeat the above.
    10. You'll get 3-6 kills at the other doors.
    11. Get killed by one of the people inside.
    12. Restart level.

    Very fast. Lots of kills. Went from Lv. 12 to Lv. 21 in a little over an hour.

    *** ADDITIONAL***
    Don't worry about getting Marksman and CQB points. If you boost this game for the weapon kills and ranked kills, or are just playing the campaign, you will get TONS of points for both.

    In addition to everyone's useful suggestions, I'm just going to point out that if you got this game on the marketplace instead of on disc, there's a decent chance that this particular achievement will glitch and not pop up for you even after all your A.C.E.S. are above level 20. I had this problem for the longest time, as did some of my friends as well as someone on this site whom I hadn't met before that asked about it on Live.

    To fix this problem though, find a way to get your hands on the actual RSV2 disc, or let a trustworthy friend who has the disc to temporarily recover your account on their system. They need to level up an A.C.E. just once (any one of them) while on your profile, and the achievement should register and pop up (but don't ask me to do it, as I don't own the game disc myself, lol).

    EthigyAm I able to get all other achievements digitally, then leave one A.C.E. at level 19, pop in a hard copy, and when I increase the level from 19 to 20 the achievement should unlock?

    EthigyCan confirm this works; I got all other achievements on the digital version and kept one A.C.E. at level 19 (other two were 20). I then purchased a physical copy, popped it into my console, and leveled the remaining A.C.E. to 20. The achievement then popped.

    FDCODEOFCONDUCTConfirming disc worked. It was not instantaneous.
