Gears of War 2: Ways to Earn XP (Rank)

To clarify I am asking what are the current ways to earn XP in Gears 2?

To my understanding you can earn XP for your rank in these ways

  • Ranked Multiplayer
  • Social Multiplayer
  • Horde (Online or Local )

Is there any other way that I am missing?

This is gears 5

Oh wow.

Good luck as takes forever to get your wings on Gears 2 lol.

Can’t think of anything else on how to gain xp.

Should have tried ~9-10 years ago they had a big XP event with Tickers only Horde that could be cheesed for ridiculous amounts of XP.

And the sun is hot

No that is it.

6,825,825 total exp to get.

With Social and Ranked being none existent, and social doesn’t like to place me in a game with bots Horde is my only option. With XP you get per wave being fairly low, I calculated how many Horde Waves I need to complete.

Rank 45
XP: 447545

6,378,280 XP left
15,946-Casual Horde Waves
10,630-Normal Horde Waves
7,972-Hardcore Horde Waves
6,379-Insane Horde Waves

Wait, it’s 2019 where you are right?

My metrics for this if anyone is either interested or searching the internet for useful information that’s updated. Also if you didn’t want to do the math.

Successfully Completing a Horde Wave

  • Casual Horde Wave: 400 XP
  • Normal Horde Wave: 600XP
  • Hardcore Horde Wave: 800XP
  • Insane Horde Wave: 1000XP

Starting at level 1. User would have to obtain 6,825,825 XP to get to Rank 100

  • Rank 1
  • XP: 0
  • XP Left: 6,825,825

# of Waves in Order to get to Rank 100

  • 17,065-Casual Horde Waves
  • 11,377-Normal Horde Waves
  • 8,533-Hardcore Horde Waves
  • 6,826-Insane Horde Waves

So how many points do you get per 10 waves? And how long would it take to get to Rank 100 if you only played that set of waves per day? (Or you can say earned that amount of experience per day)

Rounded to one decimal place
C, N, H, I are difficulty settings

10 Waves

  • C: 4,000 xp per day…4.7 Years
  • N: 6,000 xp per day…3.2 Years
  • H: 8,000 xp per day…2.4 Years
  • I: 10,000 xp per day…1.9 Years

20 Waves

  • C: 8,000 xp per day…2.4 Years
  • N: 12,000 xp per day…1.6 Years
  • H: 16,000 xp per day…1.2 Years
  • I: 20,000 xp per day…11.3 Months

30 Waves

  • C: 12,000 xp per day…1.6 Years
  • N: 18,000 xp per day…1.1 Years
  • H: 24,000 xp per day…9.5 Months
  • I: 30,000 xp per day…7.6 Months

40 Waves

  • C: 16,000 xp per day…1.2 Years
  • N: 24,000 xp per day…9.5 Months
  • H: 32,000 xp per day…7.1 Months
  • I: 40,000 xp per day…5.7 Months

50 Waves

  • C: 20,000 xp per day…11.3 Months
  • N: 30,000 xp per day…7.6 Months
  • H: 40,000 xp per day…5.7 Months
  • I: 50,000 xp per day…4.6 Months

And I decided to just throw these milestones in here as well

  • 60,000 xp per day…3.8 Months
  • 70,000 xp per day…3.3 Months
  • 75,000 xp per day…3 Months
  • 80,000 xp per day…2.8 Months
  • 90,000 xp per day…2.5 Months
  • 100,000 xp per day…2.3 Months

So in conclusion…
