quite easy, gain xp by playng campaign, battles and operations and in no time you should get to level 20. just by completing the campaign you should be way higher than level 20.

Right. Where do I start?

There are multiple ways you earn experience in the game. You earn it in the campaign as well as the other game modes and the online portion of the game which will require you to get to rank 61, via ranked games.

I won't go onto matchmaking difficulty or finding other players, who 'sync' for matchmaking every 10 levels, I'll cover that elsewhere.

You can play in 'private' and your experience will count towards your required level 100 overall, but it will not count to your rank 61 achievement.

This is how & when I was experimenting with the game my level 20 achievement popped.

There is however an optimum way to get this done but it's a matter of choice of whether you just want to get the online done, or settle in for the longer route of finishing the game itself.

Here's the data so you can decide which route you want to take in either case.

My advice is to play the campaign first and in particular, repeat all the missions on a single 'autosave' file until you've popped all the secondary objectives.
R.U.S.E.Hard BoiledThe Hard Boiled achievement in R.U.S.E. worth 318 pointsComplete all secondary objectives

That in itself is going to take you way past Level 20.

However, if you don't want to do that and just want to get the level 61 required (Ranked Online ONLY) you will want to do that via this particular method, which I experimented with in myriad ways to see if it would generate more experience. The short answer is it didn't!

Method, suitable for 2 people or double boxing.
1vs1. Small maps, like 'Blitz' or 'Tank Graveyard'. Any map will work though but the larger maps may take longer to capture resources quick enough.

We'll call this the 'Administration Building' method.

Player #1 (wanting the experience) does absolutely nothing! Take a break walk away, make a coffee for 20 minutes! Player or account #2 is going to do all the work on your behalf by first capturing all the resources on the map and using the 'Blitz' RUSE to get the building process and consequently be able to deploy 'Administration Buildings' as fast as possible.

When they reach 100 units, simply 'Surrender' and the experience goes to the other account.

Do not waste your time doing anything else. It's completely pointless. I tried it, building admin building on my other account at the same time and it reduced the XP you obtained! So do nothing on your main account. I turned off my television to prevent screen burn and save electricity.

Now you'll also get more experience for win bonuses for consecutive wins and there are two achievements based on this, which you'll get as a matter of course while doing this. I tried surrendering for multiple games to see if I could try to increase the win bonus, but the reward and delay isn't worth the effort.

Now if 'double boxing' and it's the way to go (now the online community is pretty thin) so you could play the game for several hours and end up with considerable bonuses that end up giving you in excess of 50,000XP per game. It's worth basically double boxing this for 5 hours because of the rewards of doing so in one stint. Only do this till level 61 though. Do no additional 'ranked' games to further your rank towards level 100.

R.U.S.E.EliteThe Elite achievement in R.U.S.E. worth 179 pointsReach the Elite league.

Now I used this method to get to rank 75 before even playing the campaign, where I hit rank 84 or 85 after the first playthrough on easy. I then had to replay the 23 chapters of the campaign entirely on easy again to force the 'Secondary Objectives' achievement to pop, which I did after I reloaded checkpoints listed below for 15 minutes.

My advice if I were about to start the game from scratch is play the online to reach rank 61 only. Then play the campaign element of the game. Then ensure you are past the 'secondary objectives' achievement and create a save as soon as you fire the nuclear artillery on the final mission (before it lands, obviously).That way you can simply reload from a checkpoint in the future and collect xp if you need it, but I doubt you'll even have to do that.

You have medium and hard playthroughs as well, but for those wanting facts and figures on the actual data I farmed the final level for two hours and 24 minutes on easy and created a save as soon as I fired the nuclear artillery from range. I recieved 150,850xp which you can reload, which i did to test how long it would take to get from my level at the point of finishing the game. The short version is at this level of XP you'll go up one rank in the late 90's for each time you load from checkpoint.

It's simply not worth leaving your console idling for hours to spawnkill tanks at the now 'ghost' factory location unless you've somehow want your rank 100 before all the difficulty and Skirmish and Operation achievements. Simply take your time on casual killing off stuff manually for entertainment, rather than nuke everything. That said, my data will show you how long to expect to play the first level and save before launching the nuclear weapon.

Loading a save 20 or so times will be far quicker than you leaving your console on for 4 or 5 hours to spawn kill tanks while you do something else. Again, it's a waste of your time.

I now consider this a waste of time, as was everything I did after rank 61 in multiplayer (which was to find answers that were not up for you to find easily on the internet, never mind this website).

I should point out that after rank 61 you can easily play private games to add large amounts of XP to your total. If that is what you'd like to do (with consecutive wins) you'll rapidly head towards the maximum rank. This however, is also a waste of time unless you just want the multiplayer/level 100 over and plan to put it back on a shelf and come back to it later. Reloading the chapter as explained previously will be a far quicker route.

So it's a matter of do you want to reload checkpoints or concentrate for hours blowing up the enemy repeatedly or setting your 15 'Maus' tanks on the spot that used to be an armour factory location (that is to the right of the facility you have to nuke to end the level and campaign).

So here's your optimum express route through the achievements to get on the way to level 20 before you start your 'Administration Building' method.

Where to start is your choice but start with these tasks, followed by 'Skirmish' mode and then 'Operation' mode. However, the choice is yours.

Firstly, cycle wins on all the maps, changing your nation every 5 wins.
R.U.S.E.AtlasThe Atlas achievement in R.U.S.E. worth 59 pointsPlay a game on every map in a ranked match

R.U.S.E.MercenaryThe Mercenary achievement in R.U.S.E. worth 149 pointsWin 5 games with every nation in ranked matches

Then win (via 'surrendering') 10 games in a row.
R.U.S.E.The TerribleThe The Terrible achievement in R.U.S.E. worth 94 pointsAchieve a winning streak of 3 in ranked matches

R.U.S.E.The GreatThe The Great achievement in R.U.S.E. worth 231 pointsAchieve a winning streak of 10 in ranked matches

Then do your 4 player required achievements by playing and winning on each map.
R.U.S.E.Got Your Back!The Got Your Back! achievement in R.U.S.E. worth 10 pointsPlay a game with a friend

R.U.S.E.Best EnemiesThe Best Enemies achievement in R.U.S.E. worth 34 pointsPlay a four-player game with your friends only

R.U.S.E.Occasional AlliesThe Occasional Allies achievement in R.U.S.E. worth 46 pointsPlay a game with a stranger in team ranked match

R.U.S.E.Battle HardenedThe Battle Hardened achievement in R.U.S.E. worth 50 pointsAchieve a victory in every ranked match mode

Then your 5000 kills, by placing Paratroopers next to all the resources while the other player captures all the resources. The infantry will then destroy all the supply trucks, automatically. This will pop the following achievements. Ensure on one game you do not actually use paratroopers but standard Infantry. The final achievement in this section will not pop as you'll not have met the criteria by using a plane in the game, which is forbidden.
R.U.S.E.DestroyerThe Destroyer achievement in R.U.S.E. worth 66 pointsDestroy 5000 enemy units

R.U.S.E.Who's Your Daddy?The Who's Your Daddy? achievement in R.U.S.E. worth 82 pointsAchieve a 200% or more kill rate in a ranked match

R.U.S.E.InvincibleThe Invincible achievement in R.U.S.E. worth 89 pointsAchieve a 90% or more survival ratio in a ranked match

R.U.S.E.One Hand behind My BackThe One Hand behind My Back achievement in R.U.S.E. worth 80 pointsDefeat an opponent without using the airfield and armor and artillery base camps in a ranked match

Then capture 50 buildings and may you may as well use all RUSES in the same game, popping two more achievements while the game is an extended one.
R.U.S.E.ParasiteThe Parasite achievement in R.U.S.E. worth 22 pointsCapture 50 buildings

R.U.S.E.CunningThe Cunning achievement in R.U.S.E. worth 58 pointsUse all RUSEs

R.U.S.E.Secret AchievementThe Secret Achievement achievement in R.U.S.E. worth 12 pointsContinue playing to unlock this secret achievement

This will then leave you a game to simply make a pile of infantry units near your base for the losing individual and then have the person obtaining the achievement come over with approximately 8 bombers and carpet bomb the troops and then the HQ and any resources to end the game.
R.U.S.E.Top GunThe Top Gun achievement in R.U.S.E. worth 81 pointsDefeat an opponent with air units only in a ranked match

You may then have to find someone on the site and ask them to be your dummy for 5 minutes to you collect the viral achievement. They will simply surrender for you in a private game and it will pop.
R.U.S.E.Eug-virusThe Eug-virus achievement in R.U.S.E. worth 57 pointsDefeat one of Eugen Systems' team or someone having already unlocked this achievement

Now you'll be knocking right at the door of level 20 without even looking at chapter 1 of the campaign.
