    The best Gametype to gain xp is Conquest since you get 150 xp for capturing each power node.

    on average on a good game you can get 4 to 6k xp

    here is 1 build for each character and how they work i tried many build but these are the ones i managed to get to work out better. you can try them or just create your own. i dont remember at what level perks unlocked so ill post what i have

    Scout Class
    Main Weapon: Scatter Blaster
    secondary: energon battle pistol (or null ray i just suck at sniping but you need either one for those long distance fights)

    Abilities: Cloaking (dont leave home without it i cant see someone using the scout withouth this ability its essential to sneak around and hit enemies from behind you can also get the Boo Bonus that gives you 50 extra points per kill)
    Dash ( will help you get out of sticky situations) optional would be mark target it has a good score bonus of 100 points per kill if marked.

    Surprise attack (damage bonus after removing cloak)
    Health Matrix (extra health per kill this can keep you going and going without having to search for energon cubes some people likes ghost or dimensional step i believe its not necesary if you administer your cloak appropiately)
    First Aid ( health regens faster)

    Tips on this guy: The Scout cant take much damage try to sneak around enemies rather than hit them head on.
    *** when using your cloak try cloaking before entering a room or area you might encounter a enemy. so they dont see you cloaking that will be the difference between killing or getting kill, if you plan on getting in a major fight cloak and dont run close to uncloaked allies since you might get hit by stray fire and loose your cloack ahead of time.


    This guy is though to take down and probably the easiest guy to use the soldier might have more health but this guy is more nimble so it makes him tougher to take down

    Main weapon: fusion cannon (great agains scouts and scientists, aim to the floor around them not directly at them you will take them down in 1 to 3 hits max)
    Secondary Weapon: Ion Blaster ( i use this to fight other leaders and soldiers at a close range)

    Warcry: Damage and armor boost for you and your surrounding teammates.
    Barrier: in a conquest game this has saved me so many times when you or your team are capturing a position it will keep fire away from you so snipers and long range opportunist cant hit you
    about the other abilities: the moleculon bomb can be great used properly the disruption ability in my opinion sucks... when it was used on me i would still kill the other guy at least 50% of the time on vehicle weaponry

    No Surrender or Rage: they both boost the warcry
    Martyrdom: this ability might be cheap but it will get you points it will finish off enemies you left unkilled or it will kill off enemies lurking around low on health. plus you will get bonuses such as payback and grim reaper to add to your kill
    Explosive Capacitor: extra thermal mine = martyrdom 2.0

    **** this guy can virtually take any other class head on and can win try using war cry as much as possible the leader class has the poke 2.0 which you get after 5 kills in a row that causes your melee hit to 1 kill everything even enemies that have overshield.


    Main Weapon: Emp Shotgun
    Secondary Weapon: Photon burst rifle

    Abilities: Disguise (im my opinion the best ability this guy has read below and ill tell you why)
    Drain ( syphons that extra health you need to kill the big guys, soldiers and leaders)

    Friendly Fire: Damage Bonus after loosing disguise
    Master of Disguise: you dont loose disguise while being shot
    First Aid: Health regens faster

    ******ok disguise why disguise?
    1. the ability regens really fast you can use it multiple times before getting killed
    2. score bonus you can really rack up points with a disguise build you get extra 100 points per kill with the double agent bonus if you combined it with drain you get 50 more... thats 200 points per kill plus other bonuses
    3. disguise has some benefits such as
    a) you cant be locked on by enemy scientists in jet more or the missile launcher
    b) enemy turrets dont fire at you
    c) you dont show up as a enemy when a enemy orbital beacon is up(orbital beacon 2.0 will still screw you up)
    4. you can get kills otherwise you wouldnt with the disguise noob players will ignore you completely even standing in front of them allowing you to take your time to kill them.
    some players will mistake you with an ally and run to you for health when damaged allowing you to finish them off and get a easy kill
    experienced players sometimes will think twice before shooting at you first giving you that 1 or 2 second window to kill them or take a advantage in damage which the scientist needs.
    5. in a larger battle enemies will hit your allies first allowing you time to get behind them or get some kills the color distracts them.

    if you are using this guy DONT use starscreams chassis :P
    For autobot chassis i used the interceptor and for decepticons the stalker chassis

    *** tips for this guy.
    a) never ever take a battle head on unless its with another scientist or maybe a scout, you will die 90% or more against a soldier or a leader head on. ive gotten many kills just because of scientists thinking they can take me on while im using a leader
    b) if you use the disguise build never rush in to a battle the scientist is about speed and stealth, move in behind your enemy even if you have to take the long way its better to get a clean kill and run than to go in guns blazing and end up in the scrapyard with nothing.
    c) keep your distance and shoot from far if necesary (the energon burst rifle is the tool for this)

    Some people might argue why not use a turret build... the turret might get some kill but it dissapears once youre dead and dosent really have a nice point bonus like double agent or vampire


    Main Weapon: Scrapmaker (good mid range weapon)
    Secondary weapon: EMP shotgun

    Whirlwind (will get you out of bad situations, also helps when overwhelmed)
    Hover (used the ONLY when a enemy was coming at me with a whirlwind that way i could avoid it completely. other than that youre just a sitting duck enemies will flank you and kill you off quickly)

    Upgrades: Sharpshooter (greatly increases accuracy for the not so accurate weapons of the soldier)
    Flak Armor ( helps you take less explosive damage, fussion cannons, missiles, and so on)
    First Aid.

    *** this guy is a heavy hitter slow but hits hard you can even get into big battles and make out alive theres really not much to say about him.

    Here are my stats from when i just got to combined 100(so you can know pretty much what to aim for) i need to note this is 100% conquest games and i didint play any of the classes after they got to level 25. i leveled all 4 classes almost even.

    Score 10056
    Games 313
    Time Played 2d 0h 38m
    Wins 158
    losses 154
    kills 4339
    deaths 3125
    assists 2000
    conquest score 2859

    hope all this info helps see you at the top of the scrap heap!

    ***Edit - This game as of June 27 2011 will be getting a permanent 5x Xp Bonus so technically you will be able to level up 5 times faster***

    LorMenMsLooking for people to boost on conquest. Hit me up. You'll have to take over nodes (A, B, C) we could just alternate nodes in posession.

    As stated, the amount of XP you need for each class is 362,500. The easiest way to do this is through Conquest.

    You can either do this the normal way, or you can boost. If you want to boost, the easiest way is going to be similar to the Gears boosting, except you don't get to sit around for 10 minutes as in Gears.

    One method is to get in a large party with the understanding that no one kills another, and just run around capturing nodes as fast as possible. That's because each person gets 150 XP/node, while only 50 XP (plus possible bonuses) per kill. If the nodes flip over fast enough, then you'll get more points focusing on taking nodes, which will be faster than spending time trying to kill someone.

    The other method is to get everyone at one node and keep taking and retaking that node. Each group takes a turn, which are going to be fast. The more people on a node, the fast the node converts, so it's ideal to have 5 people/side. Everyone meets at a particular node, A, B or C, it doesn't matter.

    One group captures the node, backs out quickly, the next group rushes in, takes the node, backs out as well. Over and over, 150 XP/turn... you get the idea. Only play one node because the round will take longer (meaning more XP/game) and it'll be easy to quickly take and retake that node. Like I said, it works best if all 10 players can rotate as fast as possible.

    Either that... or just play a lot of games. wink

    SashamorningIt is always possible, although improbable, that servers will return. It does happen from time to time. In that case, a solution is still valid. If I were to delete the solution, I can't repost it later.

    The Discontinued flag here and in the red box on the game page marks that this achievement can't currently be earned.

    Simple Boosting Steps

    Boosting this game will occur in Ranked Conquest matches. The steps to setup and boost this effectively will be the following:

    1. Set up a session with 10 players. No more, no less.

    2. Form two parties of 5 players who will then search for each other in Ranked Conquest. It isn't hard to match up because the game is so dead online.

    3. Once in game all 5 players on each team will head to Node B and whichever team gets there first will capture it.

    4. A rotation of all 5 player from each team capturing the node back in forth will occur till the match ends. All 5 people on each team working together means captures happen very fast to maximize points. Don't capture the other nodes it shortens the match time.

    5x XP seems to be permanently turned on for this game so each node capture is worth 750pts per player. It takes 362,500pts to get each Class to Lvl. 25. The break down for this is:

    --Each match is 15min long. The average player will score 45,000 pts per match.

    --It takes 8 matches to get one Class to Lvl. 25.

    --It takes 32 matches to get to a combined Lvl. 100. Therefore it takes 480 minutes to finish. Which translates to ruffly 8 hours of boosting with setup time.

    I recommend three 3 hour sessions or one marathon session to get all 4 Classes to Lvl. 25.

    *** ADDITIONAL***
    You boost points during matches by throwing out drones & destroying them and healing your teammates. Every little bit helps. You can also capture 2 nodes at once and rotate back and forth if they are close enough.

    FoogaYou need 10 people or can you have less? I was thinking of starting this but that seems like a lot of people to get together for an old game.
    Posted by Fooga on 15 Apr 14 at 21:04
    NonfaithIt's been so long since I made thus solution I can't remember. If I put a "no more or less" on there it must have been for a good reason. So I would guess that 10 are necessary.
