There a couple of effective methods for ranking up faster in the Call of Duty: Ghosts video game. This involves gaining experience much quicker in Multiplayer compared to just playing random game types, etc. Keep in mind, there are several factors that dictate how fast you will rank up in multiplayer. If you are a truly skilled player, you may rank up faster than other players. However, regardless of how good of a player you are, the methods explained in this article will prove useful.

Playing "Squads" to Level up Fast in Call of Duty Ghosts

If you do not always want to play regular multiplayer, you can still level up fast by playing Squads. Squads is a game type that allows you to fight against mostly bots instead of all human players. There are four types of game modes in Squads. They are Safeguard, Squad Assault, Squad vs Squad, and Wargame.

The reason why Squads is a good game mode to play is that bots are generally easier to kill than real human players. You may still face another human player, but the majority of enemies you face will be bots. All experience gained in Squads transfers over to regular multiplayer. For example, if you rank up in squads and then go to play team deathmatch, you'll still have the same level or rank.

How to Level up Fast

Another good way to level up fast is to play the "Cranked" mode in Call of Duty: Ghosts public matches. One of the reasons why Cranked is a good way to level up fast is that it is on smaller maps. Generally speaking, you will gain experience much faster when playing smaller maps because you will find other players to kill faster.

What is Cranked in Call of Duty: Ghosts?

Cranked is a brand new game mode that has never been featured in a previous Call of Duty games. This game mode is essentially a team deathmatch, but with some different rules. Two teams are competing against each other for kills, however, when a player gets a kill, they receive a cranked bonus. This bonus gives them faster reload, movement speed, and ADS. The player will die in 30 seconds if they fail to get another kill or kill assist, however. Another reason why Cranked is good for ranking up is that your movement speed is quicker, allowing you to find other players to kill faster.


Rank up Fast

Set Score Streaks Lower

Unless you are very confident in yourself or are really adept at getting high scorestreaks in multiplayer, set your scorestreaks lower. You still get experience for using lower scorestreaks and they will still benefit yourself and the team. Also, on smaller maps, getting lower score streaks is really easy because you will get kills faster and need less of them.

Change Your Weapons More Often

Don't always use the same weapon all the time. Although you may prefer or may play better with a particular weapon, use different weapons from time to time. There are weapon challenges for getting different types of camouflage. Every time you complete a challenge for a new camouflage on a weapon, you receive experience points. The challenges are not too difficult and involve things like getting a certain number of kills crouching or going prone. Fairly simple things that are easy to do in Call of Duty: Ghosts.

Complete Field Orders to Level up Fast

Completing field orders can be a useful way to level up a bit faster in multiplayer. You earn experience for completing them and will get a squad point and a care package. Sometimes you will get a very good scorestreak in the care package that will allow you to get more kills which means more experience!

Note a field order is basically a challenge that you are given when picking up those blue suitcases in multiplayer.

It May Take Longer to Prestige in Multiplayer Compared to Previous Call of Duty Games

Keep in mind, ranking up in Ghosts may take longer than it did in the Black Ops games. Many players are finding that it is similar to Modern Warfare 2 when it comes to how fast you rank up. Of course, there are several variables that determine how fast you level up (i.e., how fast you kill, scorestreaks, double XP, etc). Just remember to be patient and find out what loadout works for you the best! Good luck!

Don't know but you should try playing with a clan instead, due to the fact it is faster and that you can help each other.
