How to Farm XP
Defeat Freakers and Marauders
A huge amount of XP is earned everytime you clear a mission. In the image below, you can see that the player has earned 4,000 XP after clearing a mission. Even more XP is earned by doing story missions.
Focusing on missions during the early stages of the game already allows you to earn a hefty amount of XP. You can even earn a lot of XP without clearing a mission 100 percent.
How to Increase XP Gain
Defeat Enemies with Headshots
Taking out enemies with headshots earns you 1.5 times more XP than a regular kill. Headshots also allow you to quickly dispatch targets, making it an efficient way to earn XP.
There are many ways to land headshots on enemies, though the Focus Shot ability from the Ranged skill tree makes aiming for the head significantly easier.
Hunt Enemies at Night
Freakers are more aggressive and more abundant at night. While this makes freakers more challenging to deal with, you will earn more XP. If you plan on grinding XP, hunt for freakers after dark and aim for their head.
