Rank Questions

What do I get for my rank?

This page describes the order and ranks titles for each side. To see what you can spawn for each rank, see the Rank and Tier table.

Cross-country Rank and Score

Each persona tracks its own rank and score achievements. However, as a courtesy to players who choose to change side when Spawn Delay timers are in effect because of side imbalances, any achivements you make within a branch upto rank 5 will be duplicated to any persona you select with a lower rank or score.

Thus, if you have played a German Army persona to rank 4 with 100 points and then create a new French Army persona, this second persona will be promoted to rank 4 with 100 points. If you achieve rank 6 with the French persona and then resume playing your German Army persona, he will be promoted to Rank 5 with 0 points.

This promotion only occurs when you actively select a persona that is below Rank 5. Thus if you only ever play, say, French, personas in other countries will not gain rank or score until you play them.

What is the highest rank?

There are 21 ranks in total, but only 13 of them are gained through gameplay and scoring. The upper 8 ranks are assigned if/when a player moves through the High Command.

I'm max rank, why does it say I have X% to next rank?

In a word? Bragging rights. You continue to accumulate points even at rank 13 - until you reach 100%. Maybe some day we will enable a special decal for this achievement.

Rank Tables

At anytime that you wish to quickly know what rank is required for a specific weapon while in game, go to the Ready Room (weapon selection page) and hover your mouse over the weapon in question. You should then see a popup with information pertaining to that particular weapon.

"The minimum rank for access to this unit is X. Your current rank level is X."

Equipment Restrictions

Infantry

"Why Did I Lose My Old Rank?"

Previously, there were many fewer ranks in the game. When the ranks were expanded to what is show above, the privileges of the previous ranks did not change, new Rank 5 still has the same privileges as old Rank 5. All that changed was the title (Lieutenant became Sergeant). This is the old Rank Table.
