The best way to rack up xp is to game the game.

First off, how does one earn xp?
1) Blocking!!!!
2) Blocking!!!!
3) Get the hint?
4) Melee attacks
5) Range attacks
6) Power Moves
7) Interactions with environment
8) Final Moves

Now, how does one rack up xp? The easiest way is to wail on an opponent till they die. Mashing (X), (Y), (B), (LB) or (RB) will earn xp each time the attack connects with the AI. The problem is for missions like "The Road to the Breach", doing this will normally leave a player roughly 300-1,000 xp short of earning a gold medal. The solution is to let the AI do the work for you.

I used Slattern (DLC) maxed out to play this mission. He has an evaluation of 8593. The armor value is 325, HPs are 7850. I literally didn't take my finger off of the (A) button until roughly 30-45 seconds left in the match. Then I used Slattern's overpowered attacks 3-4 times until the Kaiju are dead. By the time of the 5th match against Slattern, I had right around 5,800 xp on a mission that needed 6,500 xp for gold and each Kaiju's death automatically yields 1,000 xp. I let Slattern attack my guard for about 3 minutes, then proceeded to demolish him. At the end of the round, I had 7,028 xp.

I used a similar strategy for the rest of the survival missions. Milk the xp via guarding attacks, and dodging when possible (when using a Jaeger, normally a Titan).

There are other ways of milking xp. Charging attacks yields greater damage, but less xp over the course of the match. If you receive 17 xp for a charge attack and only 7 xp for a normal (X) button attack, then why not charge? The regular attacks yield stackable xp, ie

7 + 7+ 14+ 18 + 27 + 35 =108 xp

Doing 5 charge attacks at 17 xp/ attack = 85 xp, but does double the total damage!

Therefore, for the same damage, you will actually receive 216 xp! Now these numbers themselves do change based upon your Jaeger or Kaiju. The basic premise holds though.

An added bonus for xp, try to do a (B) attack or a charged (X) or (Y) attack on your enemy near a interactive environmental object to gain a bonus xp of 20 - 45 xp. These would be the icebergs in Alaska, the Nimitz supercarriers on the water levels or the lava flues on the Pacific Rim map.

I only used Slattern for the "Road to the Breach". I used a maxed out Titan w/ lvl 2 parts for the rest of the survival missions.
