Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order is out now and players are busy unlocking every costume and figuring out which hero is their favorite. Although leveling up is pretty easy if you stick with one character through most of the campaign, players who like to swap around and switch it up may find themselves under-leveled for a lot of content. To help combat that problem, there are a few easy power-leveling techniques that should help power up your alts and get them ready for battle.
In Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3, each hero has their own XP and level system to work up through. That means that instead of the player leveling up, each individual hero is leveling up. Getting to higher levels just requires gathering as much XP as possible, so we've outlined the three fastest ways we've found to accomplish that task.
Keep in mind, that leveling up every hero isn't actually required, but it's just a fun side mission for players who want to get some extra hours out of the new game...
Play The Campaign
Let's get this one out of the way first. The fastest way to power through levels is definitely the Story Mode. That said, this works best when you are playing as one character over and over again. This strategy gets really inefficient for players who want to swap between alts for each level.
XP Cubes are special items that allow players to level up less experienced characters quickly. These are great for grabbing a fresh character and powering through the first handful of levels to get up to speed with the rest of your party. That said, XP Cubes are going to have serious diminishing returns when used on higher level heroes.
The XP Cubes can be acquired in Infinity Trials or by breaking Treasure Boxes during missions.
To just smash tons of enemies and rack up XP, players should head to the Wave setting in Infinity Trials. This provides tons of bad guys for lower level heroes to destroy. Get in there and Hulk smash.
