    It may be possible, that this will unlock straightaway if you have earned over 100,000 XP in the past, before the challenge started. The similar challenge of:
    World of TanksThe Unleashed challenge in World of TanksDestroy 50 enemy tanks!

    unlocked immediately without having to fulfill the criteria again after the challenge went live.

    Some people are reporting both, some say it hasn't popped on either yet. This can be unlocked by playing entirely on the 360; you just have to visit the garage once on the XO to unlock it.

    You should be able to easily assess how much XP you have earned from the tanks you have, it will show quite clearly in your garage how much XP you have earned for each tank you have, and you can deduce how much you have spent from the tanks and packages you have unlocked.

    If you log in to and look at your overall stats it will display how much XP you have earned for all time.

    Gaining XP in matches is generally very complicated, it depends on the damage you inflict and the tiers of the tanks you inflict it upon, spotting enemies and consequent damage to them, bonuses for ribbons, winning and surviving the match, among many other factors. You must play in multiplayer matches to gain XP.

    Below is a short list of the main ways you gain XP and the ways you do not:

    You Gain XP For:

    > Damaging an enemy tank - as in reducing their health points
    > Damaging an enemy tank's modules - tracks, Engine, radio etc
    > Killing an enemy tank's crew member/s
    > Destroying an enemy tank - as in inflicting the final blow

    *Note; damaging and destroying enemy tanks of a higher tier will give you greater XP, and less XP when you damage or kill lower tier tanks.

    > Spotting an enemy (for the first time only)
    > x2 for spotting an artillery
    > Any damage caused by teammates after you spot an enemy (50% of all damage)

    > Capturing flag points but only if the base was consequently captured
    > Capturing a flag
    > Base defense points - as in damaging an enemy who is capping your base

    > Joining a match, (this can give you a very small base XP, usually around 50-75)
    > Surviving the match
    > Winning the match - 1.5x of all XP gained

    > Bonus XP based on the overall damage your team causes the enemy

    > If you lose: You gain additional XP from the following Battle Hero medals: Patrol Duty, Steel Wall, Defender, Invader, Scout, Top Gun, High Caliber, Confederate, Sniper, and any Epic medals - log in to your account here: and look at 'Medals' for full descriptions.

    > Allegedly; you can gain XP (possibly only for Light Tanks) depending on the distance travelled in a match, but this is unconfirmed

    You Do Not Gain XP For:

    > Damaging a teammate - even if they are blue
    > Receiving damage
    > Losing the match
    > Drawing the match
    > Any shots that ricochet off the enemy - as in cause no damage
    > Destroying a module that has already been destroyed (unless it was repaired)
    > Medals - (Except for the ones mentioned above in a losing match)
    > Achievements - (Unless they also award any of the ones above in a losing match)

    Here is a more detailed breakdown of gaining Experience and credits:

    Hope this helps you out toast

    Not really the place to discuss this but, as Spilner says; it can depend on where you shoot your enemy, generally if you can't shoot their rear or sides, then aiming for weak points such as gun ports and hatches etc in the front may do damage (in lower tiers).

    The problem with this massively imbalanced, unfair, cowpat of a game, is that some people have massively overpowered tanks that even equal tiered tanks with premium ammo have no chance of damaging whatsoever. The E-100, for example, is basically immortal to most other tanks, and all you can hope to do is track them for your teammates' Artillery or other E-100's. Also some tanks like the IS-7, IS-4, T-28 Prot., and the Maus, will deflect shots indefinitely, and you may as well just not shoot them, unless you have them by the arse.

    They have gone through many changes and updates to try and balance the gameplay, but it has ended up where anyone not using the ridiculously overpowered, unfair bullshit tanks may as well just idle for XP, 'cos you literally can't do any damage.

    If, like me, you have just been playing this game for the achievements, then you're in for a very rough ride. You will only have the crappy tanks needed for the achievements, the shitty Shermans, the French Arty's, the Jap line, the slow shit KV's, and most recently, the endlessly ownd Chinese suckers.

    Your only chance to get any enjoyment out of this game is to relent, and start grinding through the thousands of matches required to unlock the imbalanced bullshit tanks that have no achievements related to them.

    kingrich06not sure if the challenge is bugged or glitched for me, i did do 100k on both xb1 and 360 or maybe i just have to wait like all the other challenges and cheevos to eventually pop

    mcnichojThe solution misses a pretty vital thing for those of us new to the game, where does it show the amount of XP you have?
    Posted by mcnichoj on 21 Aug 15 at 19:13
    SpilnerYour service record shows it.
    Posted by Spilner on 21 Aug 15 at 19:23
    @ mcnichoj: If you mean your total XP ever; Go to your overall stats on the Xbox WoT's website:, but I didn't think I needed to say that because it shows the XP you have for each tank you have. So if you have over 100,000 then you're gold. I'll add it in anyway thanks.

    Chronic KillerI have like 5 tanks with 10k plus xp and another 3 with at least 5k, also I spent alot of xp on upgrades but Im only at 38%.

    Am I missing something? Is the number on the tank picture supposed to be your tank xp?

    Also the explosive ammo you buy with silver is different than the premium ammo you buy with gold.

    Spilner 38k XP
    Posted by Spilner on 21 Aug 15 at 21:00
    Yes the number in the bottom right is the current XP you have on that tank, but you may have spent some, you don't don't need to have 100,00 XP at any one time, so if you check the link in Spilner's comment above, just log in, and look at Overall stats, it will show how much you have earned over all games ever.

    Mine is at 1.1 Million, but I haven't logged in to Xbox One for a while now.

    XtowersI think only base XP counts. It seemed like I was making very slow progress. On game I scored 1.5 k XP and 3k exp with the daily bonus. I was expecting to make 3% progress, but my progress only went up by 1%.
