    While the current guide provided is extremely beneficial it does require quite a bit of help from others. Since late last year, The Coalition added Marcus as a playable character in Escape. With Marcus now in Escape he's apart of the launch Horde Character crew. This video guide serves as an alternate and what I believe the faster route to reaching level 15 quickly.

    Go to Escape>Custom>Host Private>Select "The Surge" as your Hive and enable the following mutators:

    - More Filler Enemies
    - More Health
    - More Drones
    - More Pouncers
    - Ironman

    If you don't have the following mutators unlocked you can simply start up the hive with ONE mutator to unlock the mutator to the right of it.

    Example: Assume you only have the "Starter Modifiers" unlocked which are:

    - More Filler Enemies
    - More Lethal
    - More Health

    Only select More Health. Beat the hive with this mutator active and you will unlock the first Advance Modifier "More Scions" do this until you unlock Ironman.

    You must get to Level 15 w/ 1 of the 6 original Horde characters:
    - Kait
    - JD
    - Del
    - Marcus
    - Fahz
    - Jack

    Here is the method for grinding character XP netting you about 1000xp per 15-20 Horde match

    Horde - Custom - Host - Options

    - Set the Wave to 46, and make sure it's "visible in Lobby Browser"
    This will allow help from others and you get 1 skill card every 5 consecutive waves completed so that's why you start on 46.

    - One person be Del (not necessary but advised) and once match starts carry the Fabricator to one side of the map (Any map will do but I use Reclaimed most of the time). Once there get Del to start building 3-4 Lv.4 Sentry Turrets, I would advise building a weapons locker as well. Anyone who is not Del should go to the fabricator and dump all of the starting power for Del to use.

    Use Power On: 3-4 Level 4 Sentry Turrets & 1 Level 4 Weapon Locker if feasible

    - Don't bother spending power on perks, use it for the turrets. You get the most of the XP for completing the waves so there's no reason to be selfish buying things that only help you while doing this.

    Watch this video for more info and to see this method in action and being set up :)
    - The first 4mins explain the method and getting started.
    - @ 15:30 I start the final wave 50 and get granted the character XP if you just want to see that.

    GoetheKatzchenCan you add Marcus to the list of characters required? Other solutions online mention that you must get him to 15 too.
