    I believe that the nuts you collect don't matter for your level. I say this, because there were a few times where I would die and lose all the nuts I had collected after my last checkpoint, which means I would have to replay part of a stage... yet I would get a level up before hitting the section I died at. So, even though the nuts I collected before dying reset, it seems like my XP didn't.

    Based on my experience, you seem to get more XP if you play the stages that you should be at. By this, I mean that you should play through normal (maybe redoing a few stages here and there to get money for better equipment) and beat the game, then move on to hard and insane. If you simply keep playing normal, hitting level 50 will take much longer.

    In order to hit level 50, I had to...

    1 - Beat the game on normal.
    2 - Replay 5-10 stages for extra $$$
    3 - Beat the game on hard.
    4 - Replay 5-10 stages (on hard) for extra $$$
    5 - Achievement popped halfway through the first stage on insane.

    All told, it took about 12 hours total. I had a lot of fun with it though, and it never felt like a grind.

    Based on comments from DaywalkerUK and Cringer85, you seem to level up faster if you play with someone who is a higher level than you. So, if you can find a level 50 character who wants to play with you, you will probably level up even faster.

    ChronovoreYour mention of playing at the appropriate difficulty level is the most useful bit for single-players; I went back to Normal to mop up some cash, but both XP and money were a fraction of what I was earning in Hard mode. I played through a whole stage (5 missions) of Normal, and my level 45 XP bar increased less than 5%. When I played two stages of Hard, it was nearly 20% filled.

    PR0MOTEGreat tip on playing the levels you need for progression. I found the quickest xp gained were on the levels I still needed stars in.

    PR0MOTEI should also add that if you play any levels in the game, and can't beat them, you lose all the XP you gained trying to make it to the end. Lets say you're on Hard difficulty, been playing for 20-30 mins on Factory and you quit or run out of time, kiss good bye to everything you accumulated in those 30 mins.

    If u dont care too much about stars and beating all levels and unlock insane the best Place to farm for xp would be outskirt ambush in battle of the bludge on hard difficulty. Good easy map just left and right no ups and downs and alot of robots.

    Also i would recommend buying the flamehtrower as fast as possible. It doesnt just hit the enemy in front of you but all the others in the back aswell. IMO the best weapon in the game. U need to find coupons for this but it should come naturally when playing. Heres a list of the flamethrowers in the game

    ji e toyI'd use the precise typewriter (Used that from level 20 or so to level 40) then at 41 buy the precise arbor gun or something like that. They are good accurate guns and you can easily aim for what you want to shoot at, also rate of fire is nice and fast.

    Mike MarcelaisI like the long-range guns myself. My main problem with the flamethrower is that there are often enemies (esp those flying drones) that you have to deal with from a distance: closing the gap to use the flame thrower just isn't practical).
