SOCOM 4 Level Up Guide – Experience Points

By   /   Apr 11, 2011


You will already be familiar with the XP system if you have played any other first person shooter that requires you to rank up in order to unlock different weapons and equipments.

In SOCOM 4, not only you level up as a soldier but, you also level up your weapon to use different mods and attachments in game. There are different ways you can earn XP in SOCOM 4, the classic game settings will reward you 3X the experience otherwise.

Every thing you do on the battlefield counts as experience. It includes enemies you kill, head shots you take, objectives you fulfill, and much more.

You can level up faster if you would take the route in the game that rewards maximum Experience Points in the game. You can take a look at the charts below on which action will reward you the most XP.

Medals and Awards

You will earn medals in game when you complete different challenges. You can find the description and requirement of each medal in the career in the multiplayer menu. Generally each medal will have three tiers, each tier will give you a tougher challenge as you aim for the medal.

The difficulty will increase with each level of the medal, so will the requirements. You can earn these medals and awards multiple times, and each time you earn these, you will be awarded extra experience points. Another fine way to level up, but as I said, it isn’t easier to earn medals and awards especially when it comes to the higher tier medals.
