As with every levelling based game, people always want to find the fastest way to level and get XP (experience). So we’ve scoured the internet and here’s a few ways to get XP fast in Tribes Ascend.
First up, lets be clear how to get XP in Tribes Ascend, your XP is assigned after every match you take part in and the amount calculated is based on the duration of time you play for and also your final score. So to level fast you need to play for long periods of time and also score high. The most important part of this equation is playtime, so to get XP fast you should play for as long as possible.
1. Repeated Flag Passing
Puffgoal has posted on YouTube his fastest way to get XP. You just need to join an empty rabbit game, get 4 people to stand together and pass the flag over and over in a circle. Each flag pass gives you 250 points, so after 25 minutes that equates to over a hundred flag passes, a huge score and almost double the amount of XP of a normal game (not really worth it for the boredom though).
2. Heavy Generator Assault
The current scoring system for Tribes Ascend still favours kills over anything else, so to really boost your in-game score and in turn improve your XP, you need to get a high kill count. The easiest way to do this is attacking the generators as a Heavy (Brute), as they’ve got a lot of hit-points, a shield pack and small enclosed generator rooms mean light and medium defenders get shot down quickly.
3. Technician Defence
Another easy way to amass a big score in Tribes Ascend is defending the flag and generator using the Technician loadout. The most important part of this is repairing the generators and turret placement. With the current patch, turrets are very powerful and accurate meaning a careless offence can be killed off quickly for an easy score. While your deployed turrets are killing off attackers you should be repairing everything consistently as you also receive points for anything repaired. With these 2 combined you can rack up a very high score.
4. Play Every Single Day
A bonus is given to every player once a day, it’s a medal called “First Win Of The Day”, but to receive this you need to play at least 1 match and win it. So if you really want to level quick, make sure you play and win at least 1 match a day.
