So at least the Co-op XP limit doesn't seem to exist.

Or it's somewhere above 100K.  Dunno which yet.

 

(this obviously would've been more helpful a month ago, but I only just thought to try this)

 

The long and short of it is that the stated/shown $100K limit only applies to in-game cash.  I performed two tests one after the other in offline Co-op, one in which I had 100,010 XP to go for a Rank Up* and then 196,290 XP.  Here are the results of the two tests:

 

Match 1

From Kills - $24,120

From Medals - $105,600

From Treasures - $7,000

Checkpoint Bonus - $2,500

In-game total - $100,000 (applied to in-game cash)

Actual total - $139,220 (applied to XP, achieved Legacy 5, Rank 58, 196,290 XP for next Rank)

 

Match 2

From Kills - $32,240

From Medals - $122,450

From Treasures - $14,000

Checkpoint Bonus - $3,500

In-game total - $100,000 (applied to in-game cash)

Actual total - $172,190 (applied to XP, 24,100 XP for next Rank)

 

I didn't track in-game cash, I simply figured that out with the fact that I blew over 300K on the AK and G-MAL Accuracy upgrades before these two matches (started at around 3.6 mil cash) and I only made 200K of that back after both were finished (3.5 mil cash).  The one caveat to these tests is that I did perform them in offline splitscreen Co-op, but I'd be very surprised if the online game didn't do this as well.

 

The only thing unsolved is whether the leaderboards tally XP or cash earned, but unless another double XP weekend comes about, I don't really care to test that.

 

* I wanted to see if the Rank Up message would glitch out and play over and over again for everything I did that earned cash after hitting the perceived limit.  FYI, it did, and the random clips make a nice tune.  It's also now clear that the Rank Up check itself is bugged somewhere.

Play a Co-op arena match with 2 players. Both players can end up with 100k+.

I've heard that there is a glitch that allows you to get 300k in Co-op.

I wish I knew... Co-op vets should probably fill us in.

They're busy in FB, I reckon. I'm in the group but then again I normally use FB for school stuff.

I dunno what it is (probably due to being a loner where forum-goers are concerned/not using social media/insert excuse related to being a loner here), but I'm also not surprised it exists.  Honestly, I'm surprised it isn't a lot higher than that, given the apparent lack of XP limitation.  Maybe that's the real XP limit?

 

Anywho, how I pulled the high totals off in the tests was simple; I combined While They're Down/Big Bang spam (Explosive Expert/Bargain/Cluster Bomb) with round 1 Gold Rush farming on Village.  This only worked so well because GR uses the same Captured medal as Plunder (instead of a minimum $11K, I get a minimum $44K).  As for why round 1, it's only because I can guarantee that's what I get offline; if I boot Village Arena up as the first match I play, it will always start with Gold Rush, regardless of difficulty.  If I want it again, I just reboot the game.  This probably works with any map since difficulty choice is irrelevant, but I haven't tried it.

 

Of course, the totals were only *that* high because I was playing alone.  Heck, once I hit the stated limit, I stopped caring altogether and just went on mad sprees outside of Siege.  It was on Easy, after all; you can get away with being a moron on that difficulty, which is why I like it.  I can put on a show that's far more than just point and shoot (which is why I hate Hard most of all, boring is the keyword for that difficulty).

 

To that end, I'd also be interested in this bug.  Offline modes = anything goes, after all, and I'd like to max out my offline profile sooner than later.
