Tips for credit gain, by a Lt. Col G1.

I have updated and not yet reached the cap, so here goes my credit gain tips.

Checking your commendation status.
Click your name in the party list, or press start, find service record, then commendation, and then find out which ones are close to level. This is a good start to see if you want to Mulitplayer, Campain, or Firefight.

For campain, turn on SCORE/ Team or Free for all to be able to see your CR gained while in campain. Also, these are all solo.

CAMPAIN:
Chp 2/Sword Base: Laser Designated Airstrike

Begin at start mission. Normal is best,but you can do other diffuculties with no change in result, save heroic/legendary + thunderstorm having different grades of infantry, specialists, and leaders. The skull THUNDERSTORM makes the enemies upgrade, mostly to specialists and leaders, so it fulfills those commendations.
Step 1, run run run, don't kill anything, get the Laser Designated Airstrike and the walk to a corner, get a check point.
Step 2, aim it at the enemies and shoot. you get spash damage and cannon fodder/specialized/leadship commendations in notime, however, it's diminishing returns, capping off at onyx (also, rewards are 500 iron, 700 broze, 1000 silver, 1200 gold and 1400 or 1500 onyx), but you can keep doing to fulfill more cannon fodder/ specialized/ leadership.
Step 3, reload check point. Also, check your service record to view commendations, as they list your progress. I like to fire into/ grenade the crowd in case the pinpoint/ rifling through, or nice arm commendations needs some padding.
Some suggested using the locator as your try to get the game to check point, which if done right is load and lather technique. You load from the check point to rinse =)

Ch 7 New Alexandria.

Ok, you can't get banned for reloading, bungie said so.

Step1: What you do is do heroic (or legendary, your choice but either works) and you clear all the level but don't land on the platfrom. Save and quit. By Clear, i mean beat it all, and the last part is Kat saying to land the chopper at HQ.
Step 2: Load the level, park the plane.
You get 200 credits per park till you get iron, then 100, then 50, as well as the commendations. If you do this once on legendary you also get carters helmet.

alternate:
Any stage on Heroic or legendary, save and quit during the cut scene, and when you load, it starts there and also gives demon/flawless cowboy.

FIREFIGHT
Gruntacolpse
Go to matchmaking, choose cooperation, then score attack. You always get Gruntacalkpse, my fave stages are beachfront?, sword base, and corvette. In all three, head shots net about 12 cr per, with about 120 grunts. They suck, but in sword base I like the far right corner (sick on snipers too) to post up and head shot as they funnel down. If you don't die, you some creds towards perfection commendation. Also, on beach front the left lawn area is great for gruntacalpse to get the perfection, other side of the lake. you can shot them and watch them roll down the hill, hahaha.

Snipers
Also an option sometimes for solo fire fights, this is good for a number of commendation chases, as unlimited ammo makes needlers a fun capper for rifling through, and the fuel gun rod on unlimited for heavy weapons, and 2x kills+.

The ghost on beachfront? is good to get the vehicular commendation as well. Otherwise team games are best for tackling this commendation.
