Now that the XP glitch is patched, the only way for one to earn this is to just keep playing ranked matches. You must earn 6000 XP, which will get you to rank 25. It took me about 18 hours to earn this achievement.

The best match type is death match when there are at least 4 people on a smaller sized map, as this makes it easier for players to find each other. If you aren't good at free-for-alls, then either variant of team death match still provides a lot more XP per match then infestation, predator hunt, or domination.

I just do quick search any type, as sometimes if you are specific about the game type, it may take a while to find one, plus doing one variant over and over can get boring.

General Tips:
- Try and find two or more enemies fighting and try and get the easy kill on both of them.

- If there are more than 6 people on Infestation immediately get yourself killed and start killing marines as the alien. This is because kills as an alien earn much more XP than kills as a marine. However, if you are good at being the last one alive the last man standing usually gets more XP than anyone else.

- Perfom trophy/stealth kills whenever possible, unless you feel it is unwise to do so.

- For any close quarters fight, unless you have a shotgun, keep your eyes on the enemy and hold block to attempt a counter against light attacks. Heavy attacks take longer to perform and are accompanied by a growl, when this happens light attack them (Some players have a strategy of beginning a heavy attack then immediately blocking so as to catch an opponents light attack so beware).

Alien Tips:
- Stay on walls and ceilings and your heavy attack doesnt have to charge, also known as tail spamming, pyramid is a great map to do this.

- Use your speed to your advantage

Predator Tips:
- Check what enemies you are up against. If facing all humans and predators, leave thermal vision on. If facing all aliens, leave alien vision on. If facing a mixture keep the vision mode that will see whichever enemy there is more of, occasionally switching to the other mode.

- Keep LT held down to let you see the locations of weapons, charge stations, and jump points.

- Find a plasma caster then get to a good vantage point and fire away, works very well if you target two people that are fighting.

- If you get the trip mines, throw them into entry ways as people usually don't notice them until its too late.

- The Combi-stick is a great ranged weapon to stealthily take out campers.

-The Smart Disc is helpful to take on mid-to-short-range enemies, throw it at them from 10 feet away and even if it misses, it'll do damage when it comes back.

Marine Tips:
- Probably the easiest to play as when you start playing the game, while moving don't keep your eyes glued to the motion tracker, listen for the beeping.

- Occasionally, do a 360 turn to ensure you aren't being stalked.

- Find a corner or niche to put your back against then watch your motion tracker while occasionally looking around.

- The shotgun is a great weapon for close-quarters combat maps like pyramid.

Ways to earn a bit extra XP:
- Getting a killstreak of 3 or more

- Persecuting an opponent

- Getting a melee kill as a marine. This is VERY difficult as the marine does little melee damage, plus it barely stuns enemies. Don't try this unless you are performing a counter (block an enemies light attack, then immediately melee).

-Being the last man standing in Infestation

Maps that give certain species an advantage (usually):
Pyramid- Aliens- stay in the lower chambers with the holes in the ceiling as well as the tunnels that connect them. It is very easy to tail spam from the ceiling in these areas.

Jungle- Pretty balanced maybe a bit more human- its tough for predators because there are few perches to shoot from without risking an alien sneaking up. Its tough for aliens as most of the action takes place in the large open center arena where humans can camp on the steps and blast away.

Refinery- Again, pretty balanced, but if predators stay in the large room with the ramps leading from the lower area, they can use mines to et easy kills. In other, smaller areas, aliens have a slight advantage.

Ruins- Predators- Large open areas with plenty of ledges and platforms high up to shoot from, predators have a big advantage.

Temple- Predators- Large open map. The bright lighting helps as it makes it hard for aliens to see enemies' outlines. Again, many high spots for predators to jump to and pick enemies off.

Gateway- Predator- Stay in the base area and you have multiple tall structures to camp on. Also, there are only 2 entrances, actually there is also a tunnel in the back, but in my time no one has used it.

NOTE: These are my opinions that I've come to through 20+ hours of multiplayer. Other species win to, because advantage or not, some players are very skilled and will still win. If I find that things change, i will edit this as soon as possible.
