    The Progression Sphere is the equivalent to a ranking system in the MP portion of Lost Planet 3. It's a hexagonal grid of cells, where unlocking one cell reveals the adjacent ones. Most cells require credits to unlock. However, there's about a dozen Skill Cells that require you to perform a certain tasks in MP matches, before they can be unlocked. For the cells that require credits, you will need 1,369,000cr to purchase them all. Each cell you purchase, increases your rank by 1. There are a total of 100 cells to unlock on the sphere.

    Credit Boosting:
    Many different ways to boost credits. These will depend on the number of players you have and what you have unlocked at the time. The best mode I've found, to play was 3 vs 3 Akrid Survival on Research Lab. Playing on Research Lab will also give you the opportunity to earn:
    Lost Planet 3Stop Stalking MeThe Stop Stalking Me achievement in Lost Planet 3 worth 49 pointsAwarded for killing 20 Wardeyes during a multiplayer Research Lab Akrid Survival round.

    In the last phase of survival, there's a Credit control point. If captured by your team, you earn credits while standing in it. (35cr per second w/ the Credit Booster ability equipped). This is where you'll meet up to do your kills. You only need 2 people to start a match, but you'll have to deal with randoms from time to time, unless you have 6 people in your boosting party. I averaged 37k credits per 11min match with just 2 other accounts. You could probably get more credits with more people. Ideally, get 6 people together and pair up for kills. Alternate which team will control the capture point for that match.

    As soon as you can, unlock and equip the Credit Booster ability. It will give you roughly 10% more credits overall. It's location on the sphere is down-left x2 cells & left x1 cell, from the starting position. I found that assassinations gave you the most credits per kill. Simply stand behind your opponent and push in 'cn_RS', when instructed to. You'll get kill-streak bonuses as well. Each kill will also give you T-Eng. Don't let it go to waste. Make sure you're throwing down deployables (an ammo pack or a shield) for additional credit bonuses. If you've unlocked 'Hacking', you'll earn 625cr per hack. Have the opposing team throw down an ammo pack, hack it and drop it down for your team.

    The sphere also contains some yellow cells, scattered about. These are 'Pro Challenge' cells. You must earn enough emblems to complete the cell. In order to earn 1 emblem, you perform what is described, 3 times. (i.e, 1 Demolitions Expert emblem would require you to destroy 3 enemy deployables)

    The video below is my last MP match, just before unlocking all cells. It'll show you the method that worked for me and where certain things are located on the sphere.

    These were the loadouts I used in the video:

    AC1DGro0ve 3o3 Hacking or 'Nano Thief' looks like a Skull & Crossbones. From the center, move a bit southwest, toward the edge of the sphere. You'll see the area in the video @ 14:05. Hope that helps.

    KJer25 Be warned, if anyone is still playing this in 2019, you can be reset. I haven't seen too many people have this problem, but it sure happened to me. Some have suggested backing out all the way to the main menu before quitting or dashboarding may help. I was around level 70 when I got reset, so it may be worth noting.
