Player matches do not contribute to this achievement; all xp must be won through online ranked matches.

Remember that the xp cap per game is 1500xp, meaning it is most efficient to end the game or switch round after someone reaches about 1450xp (since you also recieve about 50 "action xp")

If you gain enough xp in a single game to reach rank 20, then you can circumvent the 1500xp cap and unlock this achievement. However, after the game ends you will only go up by 1500xp and not retain rank 20. This can be particularly useful if you intend to de-rank to 0xp then use the negative xp glitch to unlock the rank 30 achievement.



You can get your xp in anyway you like, If you have good method of ranking up then please comment below and I'll add it to the list :)

Before you leave a negative vote, please explain in a comment what I can do to improve the guide. This was the 2nd guide I ever made for True Achievements.

TimutimuFrom rank 0, how long would it take to get to level 20 using the kill revive method? My maths is probably off but
250000xp/1500xp = 167 matches (rounding up)
167 / 4 (15mins for a full match, 15 x 4 =1 hour) = 42 hours (rounding up)
Now, that cannot be right????? please tell me its shorter!

Timutimuhmmm...I've read elsewhere that you can get 1500 in 5 mins, so to revise...
250000xp/1500xp = 167 matches
167 / 12 (5 x 12 = 1 hour) = 14 hours
Tell that this is more correct. Thanks

mph spartani have already done atleast 10 hours of boosting for the weapon manuals, and that got me from about rank 8 to 12: just over 20k xp, so using that method it would take approximately 150 hours to get to rank 20 and 750 hours to get to rank 30, so your first estimate would seem closer at a first glance, though my calculations are very rough. Also the method i was using was optimised for headshots and weapon kills in games with about 4 or 5 people, so the xp you get is actually quite slow, using another method in my guide would yield much higher rates, so it is hard to give you an accurate answer without testing it fully.
