    Default Solo Private Horde less XP than multiple people in private?

    So when you play private horde solo, do you get less XP than if you are playing with others private? I think you do just looking for confirmation.

    No I don't think so, you can't get ribbons tho, which will lower the amount of overall xp you get

    i figured you would get more :|. Are you using the same mutators?

    maybe it's cause you don't get ribbons.

    Yeah I know you don't get ribbons, hmmm wondering if that's the only difference. Same mutators an everything, it just seems in this game you get less XP doing everything alone than with a friend. Maybe it is all because of the ribbons, but generally they don't give you all that much anyways.

    Never really played a lot of solo horde, so can't say I've paid much attention to it, I'm sure someone on here will have a definitive answer, but I do think it is less on you're own.

    Yes you actually do get less playing solo than with others. There is an item at the bottom of each wave screen that says something to the effect of Surviving Players and that number goes up and adds to the total. It also increases as you progress through the waves.

    This x10, actually at the end of every wave, there are some multipliers that depends on the dificulty you are playing, the number of friends that play, the number of players that survived and stuff like that. They alter the amount of points you get after ending the wave.

    Surviving Players(Onyx Guards Don't count for this bonus, they fortification/player hybrid things to the game, not a Player), Ribbons are Deactivated when playing Solo.

    you get less because ribbons are deactivated. the survival bonus is the same no matter how many players are in the match. it is divided by the number of players for each wave and multiplied by the number of survivors.

    You can't get ribbons on solo play, which accumulates to a bluk of your XP. You can still get them in split-screen though.

    Not as much XP, but since you are playing by yourself you get all of the money!

    No ribbons, so that's a big loss. Also there is no survival bonus.

    Slightly off topic, but can anyone tell me why you don't get ribbons in solo Horde? Or is it just a weird move EPIC made?

    You can only get ribbons if there are 2 or more people. Same in Beast and campaign.

    that's not correct - you do get the full survival bonus playing solo (200 pts X wave number last digit 1-10) if you survive the wave.

    You get less xp because of the lack of ribbons.

    As for the Survival bonus, it does not count towards xp. It only qualifies for the Team total score towards the leader boards ranking.

    It does not matter, if you killed the most or earned the most money. It won't be counted towards your xp.
    If everyone started from wave 1 and gone through wave 50, everyone will get the same xp from the win and consecutive play bonuses.
    The more execution you do and ribbons you obtain will increase your total xp.
