Uncharted 3 multiplayer ranking system is similar to traditional shooters in which you rank up to unlock gear and abilities. In Uncharted 3, you unlock weapons, boosters, medals, and media kickbacks and once you have unlocked them, you can use them to win against your opponents.
XP is replaced by money in Uncharted 3 and you earn money by racking up kills and earning medals for completing certain objectives. If you want to rank up fast, finish every game because all the money you earn and treasure you find in any match is lost when you leave a match early.
You can earn $10-12K in a single TDM match easily. You can play party matches and try to win all the matches. Coop arena is probably the fastest way to earn around $30K money in each game but that’s not the most efficient way to earn money in Uncharted 3 if you are a skilled player. Team Deathmatch can be more fruitful for skilled players.
Try to focus on the medals that reward the most money. Tripple Threat is by far the most rewarding and if you can get atleast 2 of these in each match, it would ad $6K easy money to your wallet. W
In coop arena, when you are playing the mode to put the treasure in the chest, instead of putting the treasure in the chest, go for the kills. Melee people so you get the medals. It will help you rank up faster in Uncharted 3.
You can play Plunder to rank up quickly but TDM is more efficient if you do the math. TDM gives you $15-20K in 10-15 minutes while Plunder takes around 20-25 minutes and you can earn around $30-35K. It’s a marginal difference but still, if you are skilled enough, you can exploit TDM and rank up fast.
