    You can play normally and you'll eventually get to level 55. However, to speed things up you'll want to take advantage of Double XP weekends when they occur, and more importantly the available challenges.

    When you're in a multiplayer menu, press the "hamburger" button on your controller and press RB to go to challenges. Navigate to the "Multiplayer" section, and you should see a screen showing those challenges which you are nearest to completing and overall progress. Each challenge you complete rewards you with a nice bunch of XP - have a look around this section of the menu and look for challenges that you think would be easiest for you and go for them in game. This might mean you need to frequently switch game modes, specialists and weapons to earn as many as possible. In most cases, you'll earn challenges through normal play, but they'll become less frequent if you don't switch things up.

    To keep it simple, just take notice of the challenge which is listed as "Nearest to completing" and aim for that. Once it's completed, you'll see the next one to go for.

    As KILLER1NST1NCTS suggested, consider jumping into Domination mode to start things off, since it is one of the quickest way of getting the objective type challenges.

    Have fun!

    Dread ReaverIt's the button near the centre of the Xbox controller which has 3 horizontal lines (kind of looks vaguely like the bread and meat of a hamburger)

    The easiest way I found to get this achievement is to play on "Nuk3town" (It's a DLC map) during double experience points weekend. To find the map, go to multiplayer, bonus, and the click on "Nuk3town". I was able to get between 20-40k per game, and if your team wins then you get even more points. It should take you about 10 hours or less to get the achievement if you are playing during double experience points.

    The Nuk3town is a bonus multiplayer map that comes with new copy of the game. If you got the game used then it might not be included. I included a video if you are not familiar with the map.

    All the above guides mention double XP weekends and NUK3TOWN. This is the the solution that works best if it isn't a double XP weekend or if you haven't got NUK3TOWN.

    NUK3TOWN is now available to everybody for free.

    There is still a very easy way to do this

    Game Mode: Capture The Flag
    Map: Combine or anything that isn't too big.

    So what you're going to be doing is grabbing the flag and getting kills whilst holding it as this gets you +200 points towards streaks and XP. Those 200 points towards the streaks can be used to unlock scorestreak challenges
    (Remember to change scorestreaks when finished with a challenge.) and you will also unlock a alot of challenges naturally, this includes the 50 wins of Capture The Flag.

    Using this method you should be averaging on about 5-30k XP per game dependent on skill level. This excludes challenges. This + challenges makes about 40-100k XP per hour.

    Another method you could use to boost XP is the specialist challenges. The basic challenge for the head is 800 kills. The basic for the body is 700 kills. The more advanced challenges are 20 kills shortly after using said specialist ability, the other one being 40 kills with said specialist weapon. The final challenges are getting double kills using both.
    Using outrider as an example it would be 800 kills for basic gear, then for the head: Kill 20 enemies tagged by your vision pulse, followed by rapidly kill 2 enemies who have been tagged by your vision pulse, 2 times. Finally for the body: The 700 base kills, then kill 40 enemies with the sparrow, then rapidly kill 2 enemies with the sparrow 3 times.

    Note: You can not do the advanced challenges for the specialists until you have gotten the base kills.

    You don't have to do all of these you can just pick and mix and see what works best for you.

    If there is anything you feel is wrong with the solution or anything you feel I should add, feel free to comment or send me a message.

    Dr MartyI wasn't aware of this at first, but just play the featured playlist. It gives you double XP during most events.

    Here is a list valid until the end of 2021
