Hey guys, his method has been working 100% for me, and should work for you as well. It's a little slow, but if you work or have school, then why not earn some free stuff?

1. Make sure you have a controller with no batteries, plugged in via USB into your Xbox.

2. Have a friend join your game(this can be solo as well).

3. Start Brawl vs. AI aka 2v2. Select your character you want to do it with, then rubber band your thumbsticks.

This is all you have to do for this to work. Ensure match making is on, or, at the character select screen, there will not be a countdown, which you don't want. This will hurt your kd and win/loss, but that's not really a big deal... You get end game loot as well, which nets you so many materials. I'm a rep 6 berserker, gear score 108, with 18k materials to spare. Didn't take too long at all, and no I do not suck at this game, so please do not come in here to flame over nothing. I've confirmed this on Xbox one, but this should work on PS4 as well. I'm not sure how you'd do it on PC. Good luck:smile:

Interesting. Let me know if it works for you! Keep in mind that this is a VERY sloe method. You get 19 steel every game and a game takes about 5 minutes to complete. If you have school or a full time job, you will notice the difference though, trust me. You can get a full 20 ranks out if it if you and a friend have champion. You'd be getting your 30%( this number may be wrong. I forget) increase plus his 10%!!!

You have to do actual matches with matchmaking on, to where it says join in progress: off. If matchmaking is off, then there will be no timer on character select screen, rendering it useless after the first game. Do 2v2 vs ai. If someone joins, they'll leave in a game or two, then after that, I've noticed that no one ever joins you again. It's always the initial matchmaking when you first start searching for a game. Hope this helps. Don't do 1v1 and don't do custom games!

Update: I did this for roughly 8 hours while I slept and it got a level 1 to level 14 and 1/2 and 2k steel. Not bad while only sleeping
Note I do have the champion status

Thanks for confirming for me. I knew it worked, but it's always good to have others confirm as well! Like I said, it's nothing crazy, but I'm going to be rep 8 today, so how bad can it be?

While I am not sure what exactly is required for it to work properly, what I do is both sticks and put the end around the left grip, if you want the specifics! That will 100% work. Make sure it's for an 8 hour period or so! It's slow, but it works while you sleep or work, so it's hard to complain. Doing it with champion status is great. Having a friend doing same thing with champion status is best, as you get his bonus as well. Also, if you have not yet, you can get 10 free days of champion status by signing up for twitch prime. You can do a 30 day free trial, and don't need to enter any card info!

Wow! So, in essence, you are walking in left or right handed circles while guarding left or right as well. No ACTUAL fighting done by my charactor?!?! Does the AI BOT attack me and i just die repeatedly? Or does the round time expire without any battle? Am I understanding correctly? Sorry for all the questions, I cant test this for several hrs. Perhaps a photo of the rubberbanded controller setup would help clarify.

Thankyou for the exploit, Dbunny!

I just used the one for moving so I ran straight right the entire time. You just have to be "active"

Correct, there is no fighting at all. You should be in a neutral non-guarded stance, as I believe the left trigger must be held to enable guard. Basically, when a round starts, you are walking in circles, looking around aimlessly. The not comes up and destroys you, and then double teams the ai on your team. Much faster than waiting for rounds to expire. Faster with friend because you both would not be playing, so the ai can kill them faster than a not putting up guard. Also, you would get 10% additional xp if that friend had champion status. Don't think about the rubber banding too much, man. Literally, when you place it, make sure both sticks are in a non-neutral position(both in a forced direction that would cause him to walk and look around), and that the rubber band doesn't have a way to come off. I would also suggest turning vibration off in the settings so the controller doesn't move around. Remember to have no batteries in it, and for it to be wired into the Xbox. An android charge should suffice. After that, just select the character you want once, or if its the last one you used, it'll always select that one for you. Let me know if you have any other questions!!

Haha I'm sure they'll fix what counts as "active" pretty soon.

It's Ubisoft so not anytime soon the Mira glitch on R6 went on for like what 2 weeks before a fix was made and not a single hot fix for it

Haha that's funny. We will have to see. I finally got the axe handles for my berserker that I've been looking for. Gold handles with a dagger at the bottom. Also have the two different looking golden axe heads. I'm in love!

Do brawls have an effect on the faction standings in the world map?

That's a great question. I couldn't answer that with confidence to be honest. I want to say they do. Your war assets will be auto added somewhere to one of the plots that your faction is involved in, I think? That's how it usually works when I don't personally deploy them.

Nice man! Thanks for confirming! I haven't done this since I hit rep 7 level 20, but it's such a great way to rank up!!! Super slow, but it's hard to complain. Hahaha

I work 12 hours a day during the week so I don't get much time to play, this is great for me since I can just let it run for the day while I'm gone.

Haha I've made like 50k viking materials from breaking down so many purples. There's only like one video of this to find too, so I feel like Ubisoft isn't diligent enough to patch this anytime soon. I thought it'd be gone by now.
