It'll help to play the game on the hardest difficulty (Insane/Insanity). Also, whenever there are large groups of enemies or a single, large enemy (Like a Geth Colossus) attacking while you are in the Mako...get out of the Mako.
The experience you get from killing enemies with the Mako is 1/3rd of the full amount.
Fighting the larger Geth my seem daunting without the Mako, but it's very possible and not that hard. My main advice is just keep moving. Ammo that damages synthetic foes also helps.
This also works when fighting Thresher Maws, but I never bothered since they tend to be bothersome even while in the Mako.

I ended up getting this on my Insane playthrough while trying to stop The Reaper at the Citadel. To help, try going for other achievements (like the player ones) so the extra missions you do don't feel like a major hassle.
ajmaAlso, attack with the Mako until it's close to dead, then get out and finish it off.

I TeMpLaR I UKAlso carrying on through a 2nd playthrough with your existing character whilst trying to get ally achievements etc usually works

dropK1CK ninJAJust a note: You'll have to carry-over a previous character to get this achievement.

I only got to level 57 with a fresh character on Insanity. I killed everything possible, I mapped everything possible, I opened everything possible. Anything I could've done for experience, I did it. I got all the planets but the one you unlock with 80+ renegade.

Also go into every quest with guns blazing, you want to acquire as much experience through kills as possible. Peaceful resolutions do not provide nearly as much experience as killing everything does.

I TeMpLaR I UKTo add a further point, the games difficulty does not factor in the amount of experienced earned, it is based on your characters level so as you level up higher you earn more exp per kill, quest etc.

System of a DomOne bit of advice I would give is to use an Adept character!!! You need all the help you can get and 'Throw' is SO handy!

InugamiTheHoundyeah lvl 50-59 were easy to get but lvl 60 is crazy
I have 60,000+ and it wants me to get 80,000+
that means I will have to do a lot side quest and make sure I hack every single thing I see.

QuarantaneIt only took me 3 playthroughs to get this.

1st-Normal got to level 50
2nd- Hardcore- got to level 57 or 59, don't remember.
3rd- Insanity- got to level 60 before finishing my second mission planet (after rescuing Liara)

I was a soldier, with the Immunity specialization and Insanity was a breeze. Only died twice. The first time I turned to face a rocket heading right at me and immunity wore off. The second was the drive in the Mako to the conduit. I got blown up in the middle of the ramp to the conduit.

Though I ONLY did the storyline and didn't bother with assignments.
