Spartan Ops rank boosting?

How does it work? I know SO gives fast xp but how exactly does it work?? What chapter, difficulty, solo or co-op etc

Going through my first specialization and now just got to 59, and I want to get it done fast.

LOL

I wasn't talking about commendations his time. I want to know what chapter is the fastest to complete and what difficulty for the max amount of xp.

I have been boosting the assassinations and it takes me 13-20min per episode. Usually get lil under 3k xp. Using the Hacksaw mission.

First mission in ep 1 takes around 5 minutes if you grab one of the wraiths and just kill everything in your way while destroying the objectives, gives me 2900 exp. Difficulty doesn't matter so just play it on easy.

The information in that thread still stands for gaining XP in SP-OPS, as the best way to gain extra xp from a mission is to gain as many commendations as possible.

Soloing Ep1.Ch1 on easy (drive the gauss hog, let the marines do all the killing) seems to me like the best for the amount of XP you can earn in the time it takes.

This!

Play the current week's Chapters co-op (Find Game) for 5,000 + exp per game.

This week's Chapter 4, 'Shootout In Valhalla' nets me just under 6,000 exp in less than 10 minutes.

Optimal conditions for max XP in any Public Spartan Ops match:

*Game time is over 8:30 minutes.
*You have at least 8-10 kills.
*Game starts with at least three players (any less and it registers the game as "Normal", not "Heroic"). Game can end with two or less players, however.
*Double XP Match (+5950 XP)
*Pioneer's Fast Track mod (~ +1150 XP)

Total: 13,030-13,090 XP for every 8:30 match.


I feel like I'm being redundant, though. Maybe it's perhaps this information can be found right on the front page in the obviously-titled "How much XP do you earn per match?" topic.

Like HippoyPitta and Hishoa said, play public matches. If you have 2XP you can reach the cap in 2 hours, less if you have Pioneer mod.

Looks like Spartan Ops is the way to go to get the xp and unlocks.
I recently tried it out with some friends. I enjoyed it a lot as a newcomer to console gaming. I prefer coop-games with friends.
