Cracking the ranking system

Recommended Posts

Chopper    188

Hey guys.


I only frequent CODZ for zombies.  I have been thinking about ranking and the quickest possible way to actually rank up for a guide I'm thinking of doing.


With the new ranking system, is there going to be anywhere out there which already lists the things you can do for XP?


If not, does anyone want to help me ascertain them all so I can theorise on the fastest way to rank?


I believe that right now the fastest way is the catwalk on The Giant, constantly switching between weapons until about round 32 or so.  Much past that the rounds take too long and the XP caps.


Thanks, Chopper

I will try and see if I can dig out the post but one individual who was simply racing to max prestige did as you said, camp on the cat walk, with that being said there were 2 interesting points that I do not have an answer to.


He was head shotting zombies on very early rounds instead of knifing & he would get pretty much to round 40 & then stop, rinse, repeat.


Ill come back to you if I can find the details as I am curious but it appears to be a pretty generic system, time & kills = xp, with skill speeding it up slightly. Nothing like trying to figure out the mess that was Bo2's ranking system haha
