Splitgate Ranks And Ranking System Explained
The Splitgate ranks share some similarities with other ranking systems, but knowing exactly how it works in the trendy new shooter is crucial if you want to test your mettle against the best. Before you can even play the ranked mode in Splitgate you need to unlock it first, and while that may seem daunting, this guide to the Splitgate ranking system will have you climbing the ladder faster than you can triple portal your way across the map, which is quite literally faster than light. We've got all of the Splitgate rank symbols, icons, an explanation of how many ranks there are, how to unlock it, and more.
Splitgate Ranks: How does the Splitgate ranking system work?
First of all, you need to actually gain access to the competitive playlist, and you can only do this once you've reached level ten. It doesn't take a huge amount of time to hit level 10 in Splitgate, but if you're not there already, now you know what you're going to need to do to get there. There's no special trick here whatsoever; you just need to keep playing and doing as well as you can until you've hit that level.
Once that's done, you then need to do your five placement matches, which is the beginning of how the Splitgate ranking system works. The more you win in these, the higher your rank will be, so it's in your best interests to play as well as you can in these. We generally recommend trying to play your placements with a team you can trust, but if you're good enough, you can probably solo carry those you get matched with. After those, you'll be plopped into one of the potential ranks, which you can see below.
You'll also want to try and rank up, not just because it gives you bragging rights, which are obviously great, but because you'll get special loot at the end of the season. Much like Rocket League, Splitgate doles out items at the end of the season based on the rank you achieved, but only if you managed to get ten wins at that rank. That means you'll need to prove you belong there to get the rewards, so keep playing until you've gotten those wins.
Splitgate Ranks: Icons And Ladder Explained
As with any ranked game, you've got a fair few steps to climb to get to the top. At the end of each match, you'll gain or lose rank score depending on a few factors. The main thing that counts is your performance and whether or not your win or lose. However, if you beat an under-ranked team or one with fewer members, you may not gain any points, and the opposite is true if you lose against one far better than you.

If this works like other ranked systems, then these numbers will ebb and flow based on the number of players at any given time, and they could even change dramatically as the season's end, but this is how things are for now.
