    To help maximizes your Adam points from each match there are a few things you can do. You get points for general stuff like killing players of the opposite team and doing things to help yours like claiming the Big Daddy Suit.

    Hacking Reward: Vending Machine 10pts (check the colour of the light on the machince is the yellow or your teams colour, if not run up to it and away quicker and wait for the trap bomb to go off)

    Hacking Reward: Turrets 10pts

    Research Photo Reward 10pts

    ADAM Vial Reward 10pts (randomly scattered about the levels, picked up with no other value but to increase points)

    Kill Reward 10pts

    Assist Reward 5pts

    Killing Streaks Reward 50pts (for killing three or more enemies without dying)

    Big Daddy Suit Reward 50pts

    Big Daddy Takedown Reward 100pts

    Trials Complete Reward (varies from trial to trial)

    The only advice I can say is to hack everything in sight, take research pictures as much as you can and use your plasmids to unlock your early trials. After that read the trial that become available and try and complete them you may even learn a few plasmid combos you weren't aware of before.

    Tm5kDoesn't take long at all, either. I've only played 11 matches and I'm already a 6 or 7, I believe.

    fsanukyeah... I've played the game for the very 1st time last night for about 1 hour and I've reached level 4 or 5.
    I'll definitely play more tonight after work, it shouldn't take too long, but hacking and researching dead corpses helps a lot.

    This is just a simple boosting method to get the level achievements quicker.
    1. Get a few other people who want to boost.
    2. Play ADAM Grab (Not the team one)
    3. Try to pick a level with at least 3 turrets (So up to 6 people may boost)
    4. If you do not get a level with 3 then just have the 2 other players trade off on holding the little sister for points. (If you have 6 people.)
    5. Get 2 people per turret.
    6. Trade off hacking it for 10 points every 5 seconds-ish
    7. Make sure everyone has Speed Hacker (Forgot what its called) to make it go by faster.

    [EDIT:] If nobody touches the little sister everybody gets the bonus points for a win, because the game results in a equal tie.

    If for whatever reason, you want to boost and you don't have Speed Hacker you could always boost w/o it. Yes, it will be slower but eventually you will unlock Speed Hacker and then you're all good.

    GOOD LUCK!!!

    Feel free to message me if anything was not clear enough.

    This is a simple achievement to get. You'll need to reach level 10 in the multiplayer.

    When playing matches make sure you;

    - Hack equipment for ADAM bonuses
    - Collect any vials of ADAM present in a level
    - Research corpses
    - Hit as many kills as you can as well as kill assists
    - Try to reach any Big Daddy suits which appear in the level
    - Further your trials for bonuses of up to 75 ADAM at a time

    You can also hold your breath and hope to get the final shot on a Big Daddy for a big bonus.

    However, this achievement often does NOT unlock if the game you are in does not run all the way to the end. Should the host quit or the connection to the host be lost and the stats screen afterwards informs you that you have levelled up to 10 it will probably not unlock for you.

    To solve this simply fire up a new multiplayer game and the achievement should pop for you straight away.
