The achievement says Any playlist so ranked or social doesn't matter. As I understand it you won't get this by having 50 EX overall. It need to be 50 EX points in "Any Playlist" for example Lone wolves or team slayer. I should find this out for a fact when I win one more team match...I let you know.

Ok yes to confirm: In order to get this achievement you need to get 50 EX points in any playlist. I got this in Social Slayer. Overall Experience or "Lifetime Experience" doesn't count. Must be a play list. Also got Vidmaster challenge achievement with it.

When they say 50 EXP in one playlist, I think they mean like 50 EXP for LONE WOLVES or team slayer. Not real sure, but its my last gamerscore achievement. I'm at 23 EXP for team slayer, so once I get 50 EXP for it I will let you know. I hope this helps some of you

It is 50 Exp in a PLAYLIST, a playlist is not a game mode e.i Lone Wolves or Team Slayer... A PLAYLIST is Ranked or Social. =)

in this case a playlist is what you call a game mode. Ranked or Social are types of playlists. It really sucks that they changed this to make it harder but couldn't be bothered to change it ingame. I currently have th erank but not 50 points in one playlist. Currently I am at 30 in Lone Wolves.

Simply get 50 exp in any playlist. Dont look at your total exp because thats
not playlist exp.

I'm looking to boost this in the Team Slayer playlist (I've got about 15 exp so far). It's an absolute pain trying to get this playing naturally since loads of people quit nowadays.

I'm also interested in boosting a few other multiplayer achievements; my gamertag is SpartanMikeF37
