    As the 1st person to unlock True Commitment, Shopaholic and 1k this game, this is the method I used.

    [True Commitment] You need to reach level 60. It takes 1,771,100xp to hit level 60. I estimate it takes 12-15hrs to go from 0-60 depending on your speed.

    Edit The devs have been kind enough to remove the general as a requirement to unlock Shopaholic.

    This is a video showing and explaining my method. All video credit goes to SPHINX OG

    Play a private match of Rescue by yourself. Choose SURVIVORS as your team and max out the time (20min) and set the captures to 20. Equip the sprint perk (you get this at lvl 27) and 2x looting perk which is available from the start. I chose the level Beach as its small and thats less surface area. Now all you have to do is take the medical supplies to the designated area and drop them off, the pick up spot changes but the drop off point wont. Rinse and Repeat. Once you capture 20 the round will end.

    Now at this time you want to leave the match and it will not penalize you if you leave between rounds. You are doing this because in the next round you would play as the SOLARII and will have to stop the SURVIVORS from capturing the medical supplies but since youre playing by yourself theres nothing to do.

    Doing this you should average 27,000xp every 12-15min and you can do it all by yourself no sessions required. When you hit 60, go to load out and hit Y to Prestige.

    [Collecting Salvage] While recovering the medical supplies you should also run around and collect salvage from the boxes. Make sure you have the perk equipped that increase your salvage looting.Farming salvage is much faster than leveling up. You can get 230-300 salvage per box and there are several on each map and they respawn quickly. I personally only collected the 2 salvage boxes in and by the tunnel.

    psportalI can confirm this solution and the tip from otaku1412 still works.

    Drazer76Adding to Otaku. You can get a Long then Medium carry on every box.
    Bring all the way to near the base, then drop as you come down the stairs or as you pass through the gap on that side. If on the right side then you drop out by the concrete juts before the destroyed hole.
    All three ways in will get a long and then when you drop off it will be a medium.

    By now everyone knows the Rescue/Beach method. But my advice - Don't quit after round 1!

    Round 1:
    20 Long Carry
    20 Medium Carry
    20 Medkit Recovered
    1 Completed Round
    1 Gopher
    1 Delivery Boy

    About 9 minutes for 30650 XP

    Round 2: Run around collecting Salvage (you'll need it)

    10 minutes for 10,000 - 12,000 Salvage

    Round 3:
    20 Long Carry
    20 Medium Carry
    20 Medkit Recovered
    1 Winning Team
    1 Gopher
    1 Delivery Boy

    About 9 minutes for 33,350 XP

    Total: 64,000 XP and 10,000 - 12,000 Salvage in 30 minutes.

    Salvage will rise to 15,000+ if you grab it on Round 1 and 3 when the opportunity presents itself. Just don't go out of your way.

    Don't forget to let your Salvage hit 100,000 for the "Waste Not" bonus worth 50,000 XP.

    With The General obtainable at Level 60 through a glitch (and possibly an upcoming patch) doing the above will get you both True Commitment and Shopaholic in 27 games.

    EDIT: This is with Second Wind equipped. Second Wind allows you to sprint for longer with less recovery time needed before you can sprint again. It is unlocked at level 27. Before then you will need to set the rounds to 12 minutes to retrieve all 20 Medkits.

    GsO LightI was wondering why I got 50,000 extra xp while collecting the med kits.. is it only a one time bonus? Or can I spend some, and get 100,000 again?
    Posted by GsO Light on 28 Jul 16 at 22:35
    Pretty sure it's a one time thing.

    Kung Fu RikiThe medium carry is performed right after picking up the supplies. You can get a short carry too. Just drop the supplies right outside the drop point for the long carry. Pick it up and walk it in for the short carry. An extra 1500 xp per round (75 x 20). I choose 12 minute rounds when attempting this.

    All of the game's multiplayer can be completed in about 17 hours. It takes approximately 15.5 hours to collect the necessary 1,771,100 experience to reach level 60, and exactly 206,000 salvage to purchase everything.

    The following 9 achievements require other players, or you can simply boost them. The only achievement that requires ranked matches is I'm All That, so the remainder can be done easily in private matches with friends or boosters.

    Tomb RaiderSole SurvivorThe Sole Survivor achievement in Tomb Raider worth 26 pointsIn multiplayer, be the only player on your team that isn't dead or incapacitated.
    Tomb RaiderGood SamaritanThe Good Samaritan achievement in Tomb Raider worth 24 pointsRevive a teammate in a multiplayer match.
    Tomb RaiderEntrapmentThe Entrapment achievement in Tomb Raider worth 19 pointsCatch a player in a snare trap in multiplayer.
    Tomb RaiderAdventurerThe Adventurer achievement in Tomb Raider worth 53 pointsComplete a match in all multiplayer modes.
    Tomb RaiderArtillerymanThe Artilleryman achievement in Tomb Raider worth 71 pointsKill 20 enemy players in multiplayer using a turret.
    Tomb RaiderDown Boy!The Down Boy! achievement in Tomb Raider worth 28 pointsKill a zip-lining enemy player in multiplayer.
    Tomb RaiderMaster BlasterThe Master Blaster achievement in Tomb Raider worth 56 pointsKill 2 multiplayer enemies with a single explosive.
    Tomb RaiderLights OutThe Lights Out achievement in Tomb Raider worth 40 pointsKill 10 multiplayer enemies using your melee attack.
    Tomb RaiderI'm all that!The I'm all that! achievement in Tomb Raider worth 96 pointsWin a ranked match in every multiplayer mode.

    The following two achievements you can do alone in a private match.

    Tomb RaiderMonkey AroundThe Monkey Around achievement in Tomb Raider worth 50 pointsIn a multiplayer match, escape death 3 times by using the rope ascender.
    Tomb RaiderEscapistThe Escapist achievement in Tomb Raider worth 55 pointsSurvive 10 explosions in multiplayer.

    I disincluded these achievements intentionally:

    Tomb RaiderNarcissisticThe Narcissistic achievement in Tomb Raider worth 21 pointsPurchase a new multiplayer character.
    Tomb RaiderOn My Way UpThe On My Way Up achievement in Tomb Raider worth 22 pointsReach level 10 in multiplayer.

    ...because you can't miss them on the way to completing True Commitment.

    The solo method for gaining True Commitment is very simple. Play a private Rescue match to the best of 3 rounds (as Tomb Raider is one of those games where you can play a private match by yourself), set the number of medkits to 10, the round time to 5 minutes, and the survivor kills make no difference whatsoever so you can simply leave it at the default. Make certain to select Survivors as your beginning team as well (as once in a while, the game will make you Solarii when you start a match).

    In a Survivor round, ignore all the salvage and collect the 10 medkits. The time this takes can vary depending on how often the medkit spawns behind, or in, the wrecked building.

    In a Solarii round, ignore the medkit (you can't do anything to it anyway) and collect salvage.

    Make sure to vote to play Survivors at the end of the second round, or there is possibility you will have to play Solarii again. After playing the third round, you have gained 31,300 experience and approximately 5750 salvage in 16 minutes.

    Note: To edit the spreadsheets and keep track of your own progress, use the File > Make a Copy command on each sheet to make changes to your own copy. White boxes are cells you can safely change, while all colored boxes are fixed values or calculations.

    I have created a spreadsheet that you can use to get a good idea of the returns you're getting per match:

    You can fiddle with the number of medkits and the rounds per match, but 10 medkits and 3 rounds has the best returns of any setup. The amount of salvage playing as each side can be fine tuned at the top left. Salvage records can be found on another spreadsheet I have made:

    The General is absolutely not required to gain the Shopaholic achievement. You will collect enough salvage to buy everything by level 45, though some upgrades are locked through level 58 so it's not particularly worth bothering to buy anything until you hit level 60 and can get Lara.

    Fancy BaconNice solution. This should be top rated.

    DarKenshin13Hi my friend Mobius, I'm following your method to the letter but I'm getting double the salvage at around 10k. Oh and now after 27 with the fast sprint unlocked and collecting the center two salvage (under and on top of the cave) every time I go for the medipack I get around 13.5k. Always with 31k XP, Maybe the reward system has changed.

    Mobius EvalonIt could have been tweaked a bit. When I was grinding for this I was doing 10 medkits in 5 minutes and could only get 5750 as a Solarii in the same timeframe. That's why I left the cells in the spreadsheet near the top left as modifiable though, since you can enter a custom amount of salvage and it'll calculate the grind for you.
