In online multiplayer you need 675,000 xp. The fastest way to achieve this is to play Terrorist Hunt on LVU Campus with the enemy density set at high and realistic difficulty.

This can be done in player matches and it it faster than ranked matches because nobody playes ranked matches.
VT PrfNutbutterThank God I was addicted to this game or I would have never been able to reach Elite.

br1zzoThis. 600 XP per successful match. With a good group you can bang these out in 2-5 minutes a piece. There are tons of t-hunts on LVU Campus going on at any time.

Note: If you are killed in a round where someone joins, you will receive no experience.

If you get bored of LVU Campus (unlikely) with a little spawning (running in shooting then pulling back and killing T's one by one) the maps; Dantes, Streets, Kill House and Border Town are just as easy. Dont mess about with the Vault or Dam on Real High unless your as good as me.

MstrofdashadowsI've noticed that you can get the xp screen to come up twice i am to high of a level to check and see if this does actually award 1200xp a game but would like to know if anyone can check. after mission success screen when you see your 600xp hold (x) the black loading screen will appear and you will see the 600xp screen again. it be much appreciated if anyone can check this for me or can answer from previous knowledge.

Dat Boi TreezyDo the THunts have to be Ranked?
Posted by Dat Boi Treezy on 16 Apr 10 at 17:12
British GMNo, they can be Player Matches...well, i get XP during player so i assume so
Posted by British GM on 08 May 10 at 23:15
Pedle ZelnipYes they can be player matches, I don't think I ever played a single ranked T-hunt and I have my Elite.

Epsilon ThetaIf you could update your solution with all the information mentioned in the comments that would be awesome! ^^

NonfaithLVU is great for filling in the gaps when there are not dedicated servers to dead stick on but I would NEVER do all the points on LVU. That's 1,175 matches at 5 min each (minimum): 98 hours of active playing. Most random people online suck at this game. So add another 5 min. Dead stick people. Dead stick.

willow veon any given day it seems like there are still 2-3 games public games running with these settings. you might need to join a lobby and wait until their current game is done, but that usually only takes 2-5 minutes max.

as said before; if you have 4 players helping the hunt it will go much faster.

TetrahedriteIf you die and your partner(s) kill the remaining terrorist, do you still receive experience?

qManballinAs of 6/10/2013, when randoms join your game, even though I survived and won the T-hunt, I still received no XP so might as well suicide in the future.
Posted by qManballin on 10 Jun 13 at 06:55
qManballin^ True. I stand corrected. Randomly get xp vs not so... no clue yet again XD

XF34Rx KiNGzzHow do u set up t Hunt
Posted by XF34Rx KiNGzz on 04 Dec 13 at 14:37
Go to Multiplayer - Xbox live - Create match

> Coop Terrorist Hunt
> Player Matches give you the same XP as Ranked, this game is still alive but in nobody ever plays ranked
> Choose your map; LVU Campus if you like, but Dantes and the Streets are easy too
> Set it to up to 4 Private slots if you don't want any randoms to join
> Dedicated server to no (unless you just want to spectate)

You can choose your weapons in the lobby, certain gadgets like Tear gas and GPS are automatically restricted and can't be changed, set the timer to around 15 mins when you're first starting out but the Campus should only take a few minutes each time. Set friendly fire to 'off' if you're playing with randoms or just want an easy run, you can invite anyone you like in and wait for them to ready up with X button or just launch game. You need at least two players for a match to start and you can kick anyone you like from the pause menu.

As for difficulty setting it to Normal Low = 100 xp, Normal Medium = 200 xp, Normal High = 300 xp, Realistic Low = 200, Realistic Medium = 400 xp and Realistic High = 600 xp. Depending on how you play High densities are actually easier as you can kill larger groups of tango's at the same time.

Guile132This is a very lengthy, time consuming achievement. If you yourself don't have a really good strategy, it'll take even longer. Best way to do it, is to create a TA session and specify that you're looking for good players to assist in getting this achievement. Playing with randoms is the worse way to go because you encounter a bunch of quitters that will quit after dying early in the game. I've gotten very good on this map from playing it for so long, that my strategy works 95% of the times but if you have a full team of good players, it'll go smooth but still takes so long to reach Elite.

YOOPER 906600 XP gained + 600 XP lost. I'm surviving every time and winning the round. Any reason why I'm not getting the XP?

MochawlCan anyone confirm if you get XP via system link since the servers are down?

MAJIN BOOSHYou have to be good like o DEEVIUS o, if you’re not than don’t bother playing the maps he mentioned

The game is a lot easier if you take it in stages - Don't just run in and start shooting because they will overwhelm you and flank you from every angle.

The idea for completing every map on realistic high alone is 'Provoke & retreat':
When you first enter a map there are no enemies at all anywhere, you unlock them by moving past 'spawn thresholds' - once they are unlocked they begin to slowly spread out and search, but the idea is to lure them into a bottleneck and kill them like fish in a barrel from behind good cover.

Enter the map, find the first good piece of cover, go in to the next part of the map to unlock the enemies, shoot your weapon without a silencer and then pull back to the cover. They will all respond to the fire and one by one allow you to gun them down in relative safety. You can learn the best places across the map to do this and have a solid 99% victory rate on any map.
