The required amount of XP in total is 100,006.

Each level is only 1000 XP, so 1000 x 100 = 100,000. the 6 points are allocated to level 100 itself. I don't know why, but you need that little amount of XP in order to Re-up.

Once you have reached the required amount of XP, simply head to the main menu and hold cn_X. Your level in the top right-hand corner should also have a prompt. The achievement should pop as soon as you've Re-up'd and you're back to level 1. It's a shame you don't get anything cool, or there's anything to display your prestige once you Re-up--but at least you're 5% closer to Re-up 20, I guess!

In terms of levelling up the quickest; Escape and Horde are your best bets. I managed to go from 1-100 in about, less than 10 hours of game time, so this achievement isn't very hard in the grand scheme of things.

I should also note that XP boosts can be purchased from the store to help you level up even quicker, but they require Iron (In-game purchasable currency).


Levelling up:

I chose the Escape route of levelling up, which is really quick! You should level up 5-9 ranks per game. Each game will take between 10-30 minutes to complete. I'll try to outline the quickest way of doing this, but I'm going to assume you've played the maps and modes and know the basics.

What you wanna do is play on Elite difficulty or above (do not play on Master). Character doesn't matter, but I chose one of the default 3 characters (Lahni, Keegan and Mack). The lower the difficulty, the quicker you'll finish the level, but the higher the difficulty, the more XP you'll receive.

In terms of character cards: make sure you choose ammo and damage related cards, as ammo is sometimes scarce, and enemies can be hard to kill. On higher difficulties, try and focus on one enemy at a time, instead of multiple, as they can recharge health which is very annoying.

In terms of bosses: always trap them in supply rooms (the rooms with ammo and weapons), however, if you have Lahni in your group, get her to use her special ability on the boss (only works on Warden) and she should kill him in no time as it's a very powerful ultimate.

In terms of other players: I would always recommend finding a group that communicates, but your milage may very when it comes to randoms. Using the LFG section on Xbox is great, but TA sessions also work like a charm.

In terms of maps: I liked the maps with a checkpoint in the middle, as they give you more opportunities to kill enemies. Also, if you're looking to finish the map as quickly as possible, many areas can be skipped by simply running past everyone until the end.

All-in-all this achievement is quite easy and you'll more than likely earn it way before earning many of the other online achievements that are scattered throughout the game. If you have any questions or tips that I've missed out, please let me know!

Anyway's, thanks for reading my guide and happy hunting everyone! toast

Another alternative to rank up on Escape and in general is to search for the Surge on Inconceivable Difficulty with your friends.

You will want to get to the safehouse as you normally would. Once you have done that just run towards the enemies get downed. Once you've done that you'll respawn in the safe room. You are now free to go afk as the venom will keep on downing you. However, you will need to rubber band both analogue stick so that you keep on walking in circles so that you don't get kicked for idling. You will also need to plug your controller in to keep it on charge.

The venom will take around 1 minute 20 seconds to down you as there's no modifier on the Surge to make it go faster.

The Surge is probably the best map for going afk as you can quite easily run though it. However, this does have it's draw backs. I came back to the game and I tried escaping once on my own. When everyone died I just had a black screen, I waited for 5-10 minutes and still had the black screen. I then reloaded the game and kept my reup xp and character xp.

Also you will not get that many cards from doing this. If you're interested in getting your cards maxed you might as well carry on running through the surge normally.

I think this is a great way of ranking up in general.

--- Idle XP Trick - Easy XP & Escape Character Levels --- **Semi - PATCHED**

- Go to ESCAPE -> PAST HIVES -> choose "THE SURGE"
(Any hive w/ a Safe room will work however)

- Set it to INCONCEIVABLE Difficulty and "Start Match" to search for people

- Once it starts run to the Checkpoint Saferoom (with the decam. showers)
*Only one person has to get there*

- Once there you can stay idle for as long as you want, most likely the other people will leave and you will have a lobby to yourself. The longer you wait, the more XP you will get when your done!
*Still working guys you just gotta make sure u keep your character moving with rubber bands wrapped round toggles and plug controller in so it doesn’t disconnect

- You just let the gas continuously kill you every 1:30 and it will auto-restart the Act. Just do this over & over until you want to stop.

- When you want to stop just go to MAIN MENU to cash in your XP and Skill Cards!

*If the screen goes dark just be patient it will come back, not sure if that only happens when you have a friend with you or not.*

This video below explains and shows how it's done :)

Will update if new method arises ;D
