    If you don't already have the challenge 'Merchant of death' (sell 1200 items for 20,000XP) you can get this achievement pretty quickly.

    What you do is travel to Fyrestone, and go the Zed's vending machine. Buy a heap of healing kits and then sell them all. Keep doing this until you've sold exactly 1,199 items. (You can check this in your challenge log.)


    Now all you need to do is load, go to the vending machine, Sell one item then 'buy back', now exit the vending machine.

    You'll get the 20,000XP for completing 'Merchant of Death'

    Save and load again, and you'll notice you still have the 20,000XP but the challenge hasn't been done. so sell, buy back, exit and load until you have all the XP you need.

    xNeo21xJust got from 49 to 52 pretty quickly but it seemed like it was still taking too long. Wish I saw Vektor0’s comment as I wasted a bunch of attempts where the 20k xp didn’t save. The fact that you need the exit prompt to say, “All progress will be saved.” should be added as a “NOTE:” to the achievement solution.

    The quickest and probably the easiest way to get this achievement is to go to the Circle of Duty in the General Knoxx DLC. The Circle of Duty has its own map/area. If you have trouble finding the Circle of Duty, you will eventually get the mission for Circle of Duty: New Recruit on the bounty board in T-Bone Junction.

    Once you are in the Circle of Duty, you will have to fight through many waves of enemies that are mostly the same level as you. It doesn't matter if you keep getting crushed as you go through the rounds (there are 5 rounds to complete the Circle of Duty) because you don't lose XP if you die, so keep fighting your way through enemies until you reach level 61. It doesn't take long at all and it might help to have a few friends with you.

    I was a level 51, stuck grinding through the quests and killing every enemy I could find when I stumbled upon this method of farming.

    On your second playthrough, go to the Knoxx Armory DLC. Play through a few of the beginning quests until you get the Motor Head quest. Start the quest, gather the info, and then go to where Motor Head spawns.

    Kill Motor Head (I use a 4x Fire SMG and it whittles him down in just two or three clips - I also drop my turret). You can continue to back up the ramp outside of his garage and he won't follow you very far. This allows you to shoot him from a distance without getting killed.

    After you kill him (and you gain massive experience) simply press "start" on your controller. Exit. Then load up your character on Playthrough 2, drive back to the Motor Head spawn, and repeat. It eventually takes around 45-90 seconds per kill / save / reload. As a level 51, with a +24% experience equipped, I've been getting around 100,000 experience per kill.

    This is by far the easiest way that I have found to farm experience once you're at a higher level.

    Alternatively, after killing Motor Head, you can open the trash can in his garage which spawns one of the Loot Midgets. This midget, in my opinion, is harder to kill than Motor Head and only gives you 1/3-1/2 of the experience, so it might not be worth it.

    Also, even after you've leveled up completely you can use this method to raise your weapon proficiency levels.

    ValeeforCan confirm this works, Started this boost at level 55, with no bonus xp talents or mod (Siren class). i was getting 78K a kill, 56 it droppped to 55K and 57 is currently on 38K, so it diminishes greatly.

    DannyGamer21Wow, this method is great! I went from level 60 to 69 in about an hour. I did it on my second playthrough and for some reason Motorhead was always two levels ahead of me, and I was able to maintain an amount of 100,000 XP per kill throughout. I ended up fighting a level 70 Motorhead at the end. Thanks for the guide!
