    In my experience so far, I have found a pretty fast way to level up. All you need to do is progress with the Minutemen far enough until you have taken the Castle. Don't worry, going this far will NOT hurt your reputation with any of the other factions. Now, after you have taken the Castle, Preston should have gone back to Sanctuary (at least he did in my case). At this point, he will keep feeding you quests either telling you to go clear out a new settlement, or help an existing one in some way. Depending on your Int level, you can get a pretty nice Exp bonus from farming these quests. I have 8 Int and I am averaging about 150 exp per quest completed. Plus, all of the experience you will get from killing all of the required enemies in each quest. I have gone from 39 to 42 in just over an hour. It's not lightning, sure, but it's the quickest way I have found so far without breaking the game.

    WAY #2. Alright, here's for you folks that feel you need to break the game to hit 50. It's simple, all you need to do, is get a decent sniper rifle (make sure it has a long scope, too), and join the Brotherhood of Steel. Set the game to easy and progress until you hit the Learning Curve quest. What the quest will have you do is protect a fellow Knight using your shiny rifle from the deck of a ship. What you WANT to do, though, is crouch and make sure you are HIDDEN. Once you are, your only goal in life should be to team kill the hell out of your friend. Make sure you are HIDDEN before each shot!!! What this does is, if you are UNSEEN, it will just end the quest. You can now go back to Quinlan and claim your 300 exp reward, AND you can do it over, and over again to your hearts content. You should get the 300 exp in all of 90 seconds per run. EASY level 50!

    Video for reference: (it isn't mine)



    Happy hunting!

    A couple of shootouts from the comments here:
    Both Illustrious Yeti and South Park TFBW have added that you can get the idiot savant perk, and rank it up so you get the 5x bonus, and right before you turn the quest in, save and turn the quest in. If you don't get the bonus, you can reload and try again to get the bonus! Handy!

    On the other, brighter end of the spectrum, A Giant Radroach suggests that you can also max out your Int, get the night person perk for even more intelligence, wear the Vault Tec lab coat for even MORE, and sleep with your lover to get a pretty consistent exp bonus to make it go a little faster. So many options!

    IllustriousYetiNever heard of an achievement being delayed for 2 weeks. That's really odd. When you snap the achievement app or whatever the tab is called on the updated dashboard, it should say "done.. unlocking" when playing the game and hovering over the achievement. Now if you've had experience with the issue in the past, you'll know that those words don't mean it'll unlock very shortly after. It can take a while.

    Reaching level 50 should come naturally as you play through the game and earn the rest of the achievements. However, if you are impatient like I am, you can simply duplicate shipments of copper and build statues to boost your experience like crazy.

    you will need to find a copy of picket fences which can be found in Saugus Ironworks



    now that you have the statues, follow this video to learn how to duplicate shipments of copper to boost your xp to get those few extra levels you need



    make sure you quicksave after every few duplications so you don't need to keep buying more!

    samsaBEAR pointed out that the more shippments you have, the quicker and easier it is to duplicate as you do not need to press the buttons as quickly

    EnigmaticShadow!!PATCH ALERT!!

    Copper duplication glitch has been patched as of update 1.4 which took place 3/11/16.
    Looks like they want to make you go it the old fashion way. If you are just a few levels off from 50 and just want to get it done however you can exploit the unlimited cap glitch (Human Error with Handsome Dan quest, might want to give it a google) to help buy a ton of shipments of copper to make statues that way. However the process is slowed by the fact that only 2 vendors in the game sell copper and it takes them 48 hours for their stock to resupply. Just a thought, but the pace of leveling this way is much closer to the pace of leveling through combat so im not sure how worth it it really is.

    Okay I have a fantastic strategy here that can provide 10k XP in a minute.

    What you must do is 1st of all acquire the Statue addition of "Picket Fences" this can be found in Saugus Fireworks on the floor in the room with the big heavy Gunner called Slag.

    After this you're gonna need to create a cabinet and every single item in your workshop and your junk from your inventory put into the cabinet.

    Right now all you need to do is acquire a Shipment of Copper (more the better)

    Once this is in your inventory this is a duplicate trick, quicksave... Go into your workshop and press Y X quickly, what this will do is times the 25 Copper you get in a shipment by how ever many you have, keep saving when you get 500 more as sometimes you can be too slow and it will corrupt your shipments of Copper and you'll need to get more.

    Please note you can only do this in the build workshop not the weapon/armor etc ones.

    Once you have enough Copper I would recommend 10k which currently gives me 4 levels, find an open space like Drive in or the Island and keep making statues in a long line, this only requires Copper, then once you've hit your limit you should be flying on XP, just delete all those statues and start over.

    Max Intelligence gives 30XP per statue and if you have the Lover's Embrace Perk from Romancing Piper it hands out 35XP per statue once romanced.

    Hope this helps!

    I've just tested and you cannot do this with just 1 shipment so you'll need to acquire 2, shops are unpredictable so you can actually duplicate any item by setting Dogmeat as your companion, if you drop the item and ask him to pick it up, try pick it up exactly when he does and you'll have the item in your inventory while he drops the duplicate.

    Thanks to ST0NE C0LD ET for adding this:
    "Wanted to add that Arturo in Diamond City sells shipments of Copper and red rocks every 48 hours

    Also for a faster XP grind instead of deleting all of your statues once you've filled your lot, single one out and then mash X and A on it repeatedly to begin a Scrap/Build loop that is lightning quick!"

    I x ShockWaveZThanks pal I seen the original post lol I put it up so people can see I'll change that with your updated post!

    PraXis91xI was unable to duplicate a shipment of copper. After I pressed the buttons really fast, the "Shipment of Copper" just became "Copper." I'm guessing if you screw up the dupe, then you're screwed out of whatever caps you spent on the shipment?

    I also have no idea where Dogmeat went after I dismissed him like a month ago LOL.. I've checked everywhere, so I can't do his dupe trick either for other stuff.

    I x ShockWaveZSorry for late reply, that's what the saves are for.. If you screw up.

    Also to find Dogmeat; stick a bell or siren at one of your settlements and sound it, all your close by settlers/companions will go towards the bells location.
