    To unlock this achievement you must reach character level 15 with one of the original Escape Characters.
    These include:
    - Lahni (SCOUT)
    - Mac (TANK)
    - Keegan (SUPPORT)

    Playing Escape is not the only way to level-up your characters - in Horde mode Lahni, Mac, and Keegan are playable characters.*

    One of the best ways to grind XP for characters is by completing Escape Hives and multiple waves in Horde mode, as well as earning ribbons.

    *Though Lahni, Mac, and Keegan are playable characters in Horde Mode, they do not count as original characters and therefore will NOT be usable for the "Who's Your Horde Main?" achievement.

    LINKMUNAAfter Operation 5 update, this achievement (probably not the only one) has change its description. Before the update you had to "Reach Character Level 15 with a launch Escape Character"; now it has change taking into account the new Class system.

    It is a good change in my opinion as you can use any character you like with the corresponding class to get the achievement.

    Prior to Operation 5, classes were linked to characters. The following classes were known as:

    Tactician - Keegan
    Anchor - Mac
    Blademaster - Lahni

    In this video and at the time of this post I break down options 1, 2, and 4. At the time of this video, there is currently a 4x XP event running until January 4th, however, these methods are still superior to other ways of leveling. These methods will net you a great deal of Class experience ("CXP") and a good amount of Profile experience ("PXP").

    One of the fastest ways to level up your classes in Gears 5 introduced after Operation 5 is to play with the mutators or difficulty.

    1) Horde Frenzy - Overload - Master difficulty
    2) Escape - The Surge - Insane difficulty with these mutators on More Filler Enemies, More Drones, More Health, More Pouncers, Ironman
    3) Escape - The Clock - Master Difficulty
    4) Horde - Jingle Juvies (until January 4th) Inconceivable difficulty
    5) Daily/Featured horde/escape maps

    To reach level 15 you will need to complete either 5 Horde Overload runs or 2 jingle juvies. Horde Overload gives you 21K CXP while Jingle Juvies gives you 42-46K CXP. These are by far the most efficient methods. Once the 4X XP event is finished I will update with newer values.

    In terms of hours spent you’re looking at roughly 5 hours from level 1-20 for Horde Frenzy Master Overload and Inconceivable Jingle Juvies.
