    Edit2: The method still works as if today 14/Dec/20
    make sure your controller is plugged in

    Probably last Edit: after the last update 9/Feb/21
    the xp was significantly reduced, I was Re-up 23 and now I am 49... Lol. Goodluck guys. Hope you are all right.


    Hello everybody hope you are all doing well with this Covid-19 BS.

    nevertheless,
    I have been doing this AFK method that grants you 50k xp with boost on.

    I suggest doing it when you go to sleep.

    Steps:

    Put any map on Horde on Master difficulty
    Play with Jack on round 1 with NO bots on
    Hide with Jack in a place that no one can reach

    Thats it

    when you return to lobby, easy 50k xp

    Hope this helps

    Any comments to edit this be my guest

    Edit: its around 4 hours being AFK for full xp
    there is a cap, you cant gain more than 50k xp.

    ICE Faux PirateI had never played the game before. I think it would be helpful a couple tips to the solution for new players like me. Such as: After selecting Horde > Custom Match > Host Private at the top. Turn on all difficulty modifiers to get the mode Difficulty to Master.

    Also, the game was making me move the Fabricator at the beginning of the match before Wave 1 would start,, then I would be hide. Not sure if that's how it is on all maps.

    Your score in-match will be negative and will never increase. You don't see the XP you're gaining from time spent in the match until after the game is done. You can just go die when you're ready to quit.

    Sampson 033Great guide, just tested and still works. Once I have all my other achievements done, I can use this to finish the re-ups off.
    See how that works @xxHAWKBITxx. This guide assumes, quite correctly, that you would not use this method unless your done with everything else. In which case you would have several re-ups, if not the majority, complete at that point. On the date of this comment, which is a month after your comment, you have not even 20% of your horde damage nor are even above 5% of your versus kills. What are you even complaining about!?! Do the work, and the math, in the other achievements first that require grinding. Then come back to this.

    For this achievement you have to re-up 40 times. You will need a total of 46.480.500 xp (Re-Up 39 Lvl100). Actually this is a massive grind. When you are going for seriously 5.1 you only have to reach re-up 20. By reaching half of the required XP at re-up 16 it is still a horrible grind for seriously. BUT for this achievement you nearly have to get that XP seven times! XP per level is just increasing by 400 from Re-Up 21-30 and is increasing by 800 from Re-Up 31-40

    First of all:

    How can you boost this?
    There were different methods in the past but most of them got patched (idle boosting and ribbon boosting). There is only one decent method left. You can do this on any map but most of the people do this on two maps.


    Load up "The Mines" on Inconceivable. Kill the first juvie/reject for the "first ribbon". Press "start" -> "restart act". Before the game is reloading press "start" -> "return to lobby".
    You will get about 3000xp (1600xp if you don't have boost).
    NOTE: You do this on "Inconceivable" that you can get rid of the Ironman mutator

    Second map is "The Descent". One of the latest patches removed the ironman ribbon. So you can do the same method on "Master" difficulty. You will get about 3200xp with boost. However you have to walk a little bit further and it is a little bit harder to kill one enemy.

    EDIT: "Lethal Engagements" seems to be better now. You can do this on Master and you have an enemy right at start.

    Doing this on the PC can save some time. My PC is more than 1 minute faster compared to an XBOX One X per run.

    You are wrong if you think you get a decent reward for your re-ups by the way.
