With Battlefield 1's release imminent, learn how to level up all the different classes in the game's online multiplayer mode as fast as possible with this guide.
Fans that picked up the Early Enlister edition of Battlefield 1 or are subscribed to EA Access are already battling it out in the game's online multiplayer battlefields, but most people won't have a chance to play until the game launches on the 21st. Gamers that pick up Battlefield 1 on its actual launch day will have some catching up to do, so we have compiled some tips to help players level up fast in DICE's World War I shooter.
First off, it's important to understand how leveling works in Battlefield 1. There's an umbrella progression system tied to the player's account, but then there's also four multiplayer classes and vehicles that have progression as well. It should go without saying, but someone that would like to level a specific class or vehicle should try to play as that class or use that vehicle as much as possible during their time with Battlefield 1's multiplayer.
With a favorite class and playstyle chosen, players should then focus on completing medal challenges while participating in as many multiplayer matches as they can. Medals equate to weekly challenges that players can select for each different class, and completing these challenges will reward players with bonus XP. It's safe to say that players who set out to complete medal challenges will level up much faster than those that ignore the feature, but medals aren't the only way to earn bonus XP in Battlefield 1's multiplayer matches.
Besides focusing on completing medal challenges, there are other ways players can increase the amount of XP they're earning in Battlefield 1's World War I battlefields. One way is by always playing in squads. Players can choose to play in squads with random people online or with their friends, and doing so will also give them bonus XP. Playing in squads is a good idea in Battlefield 1 anyway, as it has other benefits, such as the ability to spawn near members of the squad after each death.
To make the leveling process even faster, players should focus on playing objective-based match types such as Conquest and Operations, as completing the objectives in these match types will earn players more XP rewards than playing Team Deathmatch. Whatever match type they choose to play, though, players should be sure to stay until the end of the match in order to build up bonus XP multipliers that carry on from match to match.
By playing objective match types, playing in squads, completing medal challenges, and focusing on specific classes, players will be well on their way to the Battlefield 1 level cap. With these suggestions in mind, players should be able to level up in Battlefield 1 as fast as possible.
Battlefield 1 will be available on October 21st for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
