IMPORTANT UPDATE: Sorry, folks. It looks like the recent title update has caused Sniper Strike headshots to no longer count toward the headshot bounty. You'll still get xp for the ribbons and whatnot, but not for the bounty.

This is a modification of a guide originally posed by YAT0, but which he had taken down. It will get you 16K xp for doing just one Wave of Horde, using only the Sniper Strike from the fabricator.

1) You’ll need to fire up a second controller and sign in a guest. You can still use this method without a guest signed in, but the game will behave differently for some reason. With a guest signed in the Sniper Strike works more effectively, and I don't know why. I just know that you will more often than not fail to kill all of the enemies with the Sniper Strike when you are playing without a second controller signed in. Also, having a second controller signed in will allow you to earn credits for finishing the wave.
2) Go to a Private Horde match on the map Reclaimed. Set Wave to 49 and difficulty to Insane. The map does not have to be Reclaimed, and based on the comments other people have their favorites. Foundation seems popular (see comments).
3) You’ll be playing as the sniper class. Ideally, your Sniper Strike should be at level 4. This will allow you to maximize the number of ribbons you’ll get during the wave.
4) Set your bounty to Headshot I (7,500 xp for getting 50 headshots). You can craft this bounty for 40 scrap. If you’re at the point where you’re just grinding xp just sell, sell, sell and buy tons of this bounty.

The Grind:
1) Start up the game at Wave 49, then drag the fabricator into the Garage for a little safe cover. Bring your second controller player over to the fabricator also just in case you get downed.
2) As soon as the icon for Sniper Strike is available, fire one off.
3) Continue to fire off Sniper Strikes until the wave is cleared. Wait a few seconds between strikes to make sure that you get the Double, Triple, Quad and Quint ribbons every time. This will affect your xp gain immensely. A good rule of thumb is to fire off the next Sniper Strike as soon as the Quad or Quint ribbon shows up. If your Sniper Strike is level 4 you'll have enough energy in the fabricator to clear the wave.
4) After the wave is cleared and the kills have been tallied, press Start and select Return to Lobby, not Return to Main Menu. This way you won’t have to change any settings and can immediately launch another game on Insane from Wave 49.

You should get roughly 8,500 xp from ribbons and clearing the wave, plus 7,500 for the Headshot I bounty. Ribbon xp will vary based on randomly getting Oscar Mike ribbons. That’s 16,000 xp from doing a single wave of Horde without firing a shot.
