Island of Lost Soldiers co-op
Scrapworks Salvage co-op
Make sure to take ones that link.

The Hulker in San Quentin is good too.

Tie a rubber band on your controller so you can heal yourself. Find an enemy and then watch a movie. Just dont let your controller turn off.

Use a spanner protector, stingray, or collider from vbi rep vendor. Equip 2 so while one is charging the other is ready to go, reload, and swap. Over and over. Hulker is good xp. Stop and do all instances. Kill monarchs. Takes a while but gotta do what you gotta do. From 6 to lvl 10 takes a while no matter what you do. Just sucks. Never want to touch another bmg now. They suck anyway.

Forgot. Hope499 is right. Forges are amazing for xp no matter the weapon. Use a flash grenade to imobilize it after it opens its eye and go to town. Most people try to rush scrapper arkfalls when they should be milking them for xp and loot. At the major most avoid forger for arms when forge gives so so so much more crit hits.

Except....weapons don't gain levels at arkfalls (unless that changed recently)

Pretty much what I did with my BMGs from 2-10.

Forge Eyes and the ones that don't link. I put 5 levels on mine in like 2 days.

Exactly. That's how it works.

BMG healing at Arkfalls gives weapon XP. Also Matrons give XP too.

I kept replaying the mother lode and scrap works using overcharge. More damage equals faster leveling. Make sure they link the enemies.

I remain confused by this claim.

I fired my Incubator at the crystal in bunches of arkfalls, and now I have Innoculators at 20. I did not go someplace else and grind, like I am doing with Hulkers and assault rifles.

So if some weapons don't level up at arkfalls, I'm thinking that some DO...

Major Arkfalls have never given weapon xp. The stand alone, the minor ones, do.

I wish I could get Innoculators to 20..... sadly I can only level my Infector weapons. :(

So all the crystals I shot as I worked my way to the final battle did NOT add to the XP on my Incubator as the bugs went off and killed things?

This is odd.

I will go to my EGO 210 character, note the current status of the one bug gun I have (Never remember jargon: Innoculator is apparently wrong for the whole group) and then do a Major Arkfall. If it doesn't go up, I'll wonder how I ever got to 20...

All i can tell you is fight through the pain! Your eyes may bleed but you will get that bmg to 10 with dedication =p

Sieges seem to be the fastest way (ive used nothing but bmgs for the last 3 weeks.)

I was just going to say Sieges myself. Today I gained 1.5 lvls on my BMG from sieges (attacking grps at spawn) and arkfalls(healing plyrs). Usually I equip BMG/AR. Fire the ol'AR on enemies till mag is empty, switch to my BMG and do some healing then when BMG recharges I switch to AR. Repeat as necessary.

NOTE: I have Preparedness perk equipped to reload stowed wpn.

Huh. I thought that 98% of my Defiance experience was Major Arkfalls, yet none of my weapons get any more Mastered while doing them. Ah, well. One bright spot is, I might as well keep using my bug guns during Majors now that switching off to something else isn't any benefit, and bug guns make plenty of ammo without ever targeting an enemy directly...

These new plague zombie emergencies are awesome for leveling BMG's! Equip 2 BMG's & make sure they link. When one runs dry, start the reload & switch! You fire continuously. The plague mobs mean you can usually link 2-4 at a time, increasing your leveling. Also with the exception of the occasional vomit zombie, they don't shoot, so just run circles around them! :D The perk Preparedness is NOT necessary. Once the BMG starts reloading you can stow it & it will continue to reload. Overcharge is a huge help. Activating Overcharge with an empty or near empty clip auto reloads. Add the perks Killing Machine and Killing Spree for a longer Overcharge. I've ranked from 1-6 in a little over a day. So much easier then those blasted infectors!

Arkfalls do not level the individual guns, but they most certainly level up the weapons skills. :o

Serious? I'll have to check that out later, apart from BMG healing I thought you gained no overall weapon skill experience on anything
