each time u complete a mission with a higher difficulty level u will progress throught he ranks, I found that once I had hacked a bank and transfered the money to my account sucessfully I flew through the ranks. With each bank i hacked my rank went up again and again until i got bored and stopped hacking banks... theres olny so much credit one hacker needs :)

but you know.. i keep reading ppl have like billion + credits.. but after you buy all the hardware and software.. what else can you do with the money!!.... i mean you have the best gear...

investing in stocks, seems boring.. haha maybe coz i havent tried that yet.. but yea what else is there... pretty much nothing... i think...


but anyways... so bank hacking would be the fastest way then...

thanx

The ratings seem to based more on your credits than on acutal missions completed. Swipe a million or so creds from a bank and you'll be at the Terminal level in no time.

I should warn you about this: Doing a bank heist requires speed. Starting from the transfer, you'll only have 3-5 minutes to clear the transfer logs from the source's account, your account @ Uplink bank, and the bounce/connection logs from InterNIC.

it seems that every time i hack a bank and steal cash my rating goes to elite almost instantly.. infact that's one sure fire way (i think) to know if you've gotten away with it..lol

...or wait for the "Trace a Recent Bank Balance" missions to appear. Those missions tend to involve rather large bank accounts.

For me one time I first got Professional from the hack and then über-leet from deleting my logs XD.
Can it have something to do with that I was close to get traced (1 hour had gone since the hack and I remembered then that I had to clean logs).

Bankhack.

Bankhack like MAD.

You don't even ned to get a lot of credits. Just bankhack. If you can get away with your hack, then you'll shoot up in ranking. Steal a couple million, and you'll be at the top, easy.

(Heck, I only stole 1,106,007 credits and I went from Professional to Mage...)
