There is a time consuming but very easy glitch to help speed this along.

When on planet Therum for the first time (meaning this can be done with a pre-existing character on a second or third playthrough), activate the mining laser (the code is AXBY) and then save as soon as you receive experience.

Then, load the save you just made. You'll notice you gained more experience. Save again, as quickly as you can, and reload the new save. Repeat as many times as desired.

The experience you gain scales with level, so this is faster than just killing hordes of enemies.

Therum is the planet you rescue Liara T'Soni from, and is located in the Knossos system in the Artemis Tau cluster.

Good luck!
I smash START so that I can save as quickly as possible, but when I load the save I can't activate the laser again. Was there an update for this glitch?

Tanelorn82I had to do it ~200 times from 59 to 60. It wasn't that long.

Ostrowidzki1989Added a positive because it's better than the others. I did it yesterday from 44-50 in 30 minutes.

TEDDYbearKNIGHTIm playing on NORMAL and was only able to level up to 50. I was wondering if this was normal and level 60 was only obtainable on the higher difficulties

GodLike499@TEDDYbearKNIGHT yes, level cap is raised to 60 after completing the first playthrough. On the bright side, if you're already 50 you shouldn't have a problem getting to 60 before completing your insanity playthrough.

jlen03Genuinely don't know why this has so many down votes--author was accurate, concise, and up front about this exploit. For reference, took about an hour to get the 180k I had left to acquire. Can confirm this works on XB1, and I imagine (if you're using a 360) installing the game will significantly cut down on load times.

JimmieWorldThank you I used this to get lvl 60, but its just for fun, because you have to replay the game at least 3 times anyways! btw if anyone curious I gained 1017 XP everytime with this method.
