Halo 4 Max Rank

OP Withyn3302

How long does it take to get there?
I think it's long because you have to go to SR130 to finihs the first stade, next you unlock the specializations that you have to rank up until the next specialization. You can see this in the Carreer tab
It didn't take me very long to hit max rank, I think I got it in less than a year, he grind it MUCH less painful than Halo 5s for sure XD

I don't remember the exact amount but the amount of time required for reaching the max rank in Halo 4 wasn't too bad. Few methods that can be used is to play through the Spartan Ops campaign (solo) few times (preferably in Easy difficulty) or to play 10 minute custom multiplayer games over and over again until you complete every single specialization.

To make the process slightly quicker, you can start with completing the Pioneer specialization which gives the Fast Track upgrade to the loadout which in turn gives improved xp payout by 20%.
I believe it can be done in 50-60 hours if you are efficient. Not too long.
It's not super long once you start reaching the Specializations. The first one to get, I don't remember if it is Pathfinder or Pioneer, first. It has a special ability that gives you bonus XP or something like that so basically it was pretty easy to rank up through the Specializations after that point. I think it took me like less than a month to his max rank...and it only took me that long because I didn't always play every day.

SR130 itself is the max rank. You move into specializations once you hit level 50, and after that it's a new specialization every 10 levels. There's a level of choice in them as well, but it's not entirely free.

The Specialization you refer to is the Pioneer which gives the Fast Track Tactical package when completed. This Tactical package will improve the XP payouts from each game when used by 20% (not including XP from Challenges and Commendations).

That's it.
I heard that playing Spartan Ops missions on higher difficulties (single player) should get you there pretty quick.

If I remember correctly, the XP payouts from Spartan Ops was completely independent from the difficulty setting. XP was instead only given based on time played, player rank at the initial specialization (SR 1 to 50) and if the player used Fast Track in the loadout. This meant that the fastest way to get XP was to play Spartan Ops on Easy due to the lowest difficulty (shorter missions).

This^^^^ took me roughly 2 months to hit max rank

For me, it took a bit longer to reach the final rank in Halo 4. However, I do completely agree that it was a quick process and the main reason for this was that the 8 specializations wasn't too long to complete.

How fast it was to rank up/Specializations only having 10 ranks per was my biggest gripe with this game. If the ranking up process was much longer I feel like this game would of had more longevity

In my opinion, the main problem was that the Specializations was very short in general and that later Specializations wouldn't increase in length. Another point was that it was also to easy to reach SR50 (the main ranks) and unlock all the none Specialization ranking up related items.
