With all the solutions posted, you might think that all methods have been discussed. We have found another and believe it to be the quickest to achieve the Rank Badges.
The Kingpin achievement requires that you obtain 30 badges. There are 20 non-ranked badges that can be obtained in private, non-ranked matches. The balance, however, must come from online, ranked matches. Our solution is to help with the ranked badges. Please see other solutions for non-ranked badge suggestions.
~ 4 players in 3 hour session
~ Strong Arm Trailer Park map - Ultor Exposed DLC
~ Map tags: 2X Kill, Pimp Slap and Sprint (occur randomly)
~ Do no activities!
As with other Strong Arm solutions posted, our goal is to get a player to $100,000. Our twist is to have 2 players get roughly $100,000 each in one match.
Establish a session of 4 players. Create two game parties with two players each. Each group will search for a ranked Strong Arm match on Trailer Park - Ultor Exposed DLC. Else, you can search for Oldtown. The DLC reduces chances of randoms. If, however, they find you, have both teams quit searching, wait a minute or two and then try again. We find they leave after a couple quits.
The key here is the 2X Kill tag - crosshairs on splatter icon. If it is not present on the map, alternate team quits until it is. Have the quitting team initiate the next search. Once present, tag it and have a player on the team who owns it kill to $99,000. Then re-tag and have a player from the other team kill to $100,000 which will end the match.
Killing team mates should stand together so that dying team knows where to run upon spawn. With the 2X Kill, a kill counts for $3,000. Without it a kill is $1,500. When the first player reaches $93,000, the team mate of the next killer should be heading for the 2X Kill tag ready to re-tag. This allows two players in a match to benefit from the 2X Kill tag instead of one per match.
If the 2X tag did not show, XP is earned by the non-quiting team which is the reason for alternating quits but make sure the quitting team was not first in the game matchmaking lobby. Quitting team sets up next match.
Pimp Slap for the killing team is helpful just as Sprint is for the dying side. However, don't go out of your way to tag them. On the Trailer Park map, we found the best place to congregate was inside the dinosaur car sculpture in front of the garbage bin. Have all dying players run to that location. Each player should get their kills within 2 rounds of activities. Race is the best since players spawn at the dinosaur if they ran (not in car) through the starting marker.
Note that a player does not earn $100,000 toward the ranked badges. Depending on your current rank, a certain percentage of $100,000 applies. There is a solution posted here detailing the ranks and take home percentage for each. NO ONE DO ACTIVITIES! Winning such will reduce your take home pay. UPDATE:
MAYHEM is an activity requiring a little extra attention. MAYHEM is 3 minutes long broken up into two equal time segments. You will be warned 15 seconds prior to the start of each segment. At the same time, you will be told what the bonus condition will be for that segment. The bonus condition can earn a player an activity specific score whether in or out of the zone which will lead to winning the activity - a no no for this solution. So don't do them! Of particular importance is the condition: "Get bonus for destroying Enemy Team
". When that condition appears, kill no one and wait out the segment. Resume killing when the next segment starts or the MAYHEM activity ends. The bonus condition and zone location will change during the second segment. No matter where the zone is located, never do anything in it.

* With the above, I saw a 60% increase in take home pay in a 3 hour, 4 person session. This over having one player kill to $100,000 per match no matter what tags were present. I had 5 runs at $100,000 instead of the 3.
Can be done with a 2 hour session and more players - preferably an even number. If you do not purchase anything, you may track your progress by viewing your available funds in the store section of the multiplayer menu.
QUICK RUN DOWN:Above method still being perfected by https://www.trueachievements.com/TheJiveGoblin.htm, Plaguewielder87, https://www.trueachievements.com/StriderLGNs.htm, mrbellek and NonKosherSalt. We will edit or add in the comments any refinements. Questions or comments are welcomed.
~ Alternate quits until 2X Kill tag is present
~ Tag it and have one player on that team kill until close to $100,000
~ Dying team then tags 2X Kill tag and a player of that team kills until match ends.
~ Regardless of who won, team that did not set up last match creates the next one
~ If no 2X tag, the team who did not set up the match, quits to create the next one.
~ And so on... Rinse & Repeat.
Never do anything inside activity zones and wait out any kill enemy bonus events.
