    Credits are earned by playing multiplayer or horde mode. To get this achievement you need to earn 10,000 credits. Below is my method for farming credits.

    How to Credit Farm with Sniper Strike at Level 2 in Gears of War 4:

    Other credit farming guides I've seen have noted using Sniper Strike leveled up to level 4, or level 3 with needing to mop up a few enemies. Since It's a pain to get the skill leveled up I came up with a way to do it with sniper strike at level 2. Each round takes approx 3-4 minutes total, nets 71 credits and 3-4k experience for the profile performing the sniper strikes. You can have other players in the room as well who are away from controller and they too will get the same number of credits. They get much lower experience as they are not getting the ribbons that the sniper strike person gets. If you have online players in the room they should have wired controllers if they are away from controller so their controllers do not disconnect.

    Horde Mode with the following settings:

    Map: Gridlock
    Difficulty: Insane
    Wave: 41
    Class: Sniper, must have sniper strike equipped and it must be at least level 2

    When round starts run to fabricator. Pick it up, immediately drop it, and immediately pick it up again. Carry to the spot shown in the video. Build and place a barrier as in the video to keep shock trackers out. Then use sniper strike to eliminate enemies (you should be able to use the skill 8 times). There are 39 enemies in total in this wave, so the 8 uses of sniper strike usually have no problem killing all the enemies. On VERY rare occasions you may have to mop up an enemy or two, but that is rare. Once the wave 41 completion screen is finished and wave 42 starts, immediately exit to lobby. As soon as the coalition symbol goes away hit A (skip), then B (close), and finally X (start match) to start the next round.

    A video of me performing the technique is below.

    FuzzyCoyoteBlimey, thats a cracking little time saver. Is this something they can patch?

    CornkidThey can patch anything if they want to. As far as this method goes, it works because you get 5 kills for sniper strike level 2 even though you are only supposed to get 4 kills according to the skill card description. So if they ever decide to fix the extra kill it would invalidate this technique and make you need sniper strike level 3.

    Also note that after the most recent update there have been issues with being rewarded credits and experience (there's a long thread about it on the official gears of war 4 forums), and some people have been losing levels and re ups. So I'm not playing until I hear it's fixed; which is a bummer because I love playing private horde on the weekends.

    DadmixI had met the requirements ages ago on game pass,because I gave up game pass I unistalled the game this and a bunch others unlocked on start. My guess I had dash boarded rather than quit even though I had tured my Xbox off in between playing.
    Guess you need to quit and restart if it doesn't pop.
