Everything about ranks in PUBG

In Playerunknown's Battlegrounds, just like in every other shooter, there is a ranking system that ensures fair games between players. To put it simply, lower-skilled players and those new to the game will be placed in lower rankings than professionals who have spent countless hours on the battlefield. If you are new to the game, you might be interested to see how this system works - here we are to explain it to you.


Ranking Seasons

PUBG Ranking system gives players a way to show off individual skills outside of the actual gameplay. Each of the seasons marks a time when all players begin their leaderboard climb with ten placement matches that determine the skill level that they are in. After those, players will get a certain rank based on their performance. This medal can be furthermore upgraded or degraded depending on player's performance later in the season. One season lasts around two months.

Rank Points are earned during the game. Players who perform well during the matches will receive more points than players who didn't do that well. Survivors that had a bad game might instead be downgraded to worse ranks. On your match, you will be placed against several other people from different skill levels. All their ranks are taken into the calculation to determine how hard your game was so you would get more points for a fight against tougher opponents and less for easier targets.

Multiple factors are taken into consideration during the rank calculation process; however, here is a very rough explanation of how this system works:

  • A platinum player with 8 kills in the game could earn around 30 Rank Points

  • The same player with 1 kill could earn around 20 Rank Points

  • If the same player finishes a game on a 100th place, he will lose 20 Rank Points.


Tiers of PUBG ranks

There are eight tiers of PUBG rankings. Each tier is a gap between points threshold that represents your current skill. During placement, your initial rank will be determined only by the first ten games; however, in the following seasons, your rank will be calculated by ten placement matches and your rank from the last season. Because of that, you won't be able initially to get to the highest ranks, but you will need to climb your way to that place slowly. Many players reside in ranks between bronze and platinum and only a small percentage of them can get higher than that.

There are three different queues for your ranks: Solo, Duo, and Squad. For each one of them, you will get a different ranking that won't affect others. Here is a graphical representation of ranks available in PUBG.

How to get better in PUBG

To reach for higher ranks in PUBG on live solo games, you have to be focused on your gameplay. Firstly make sure that your hardware and settings allows you to play smooth gameplay - 60fps and a decent mouse will be a great start. You do not need a top tier monitor and gaming keyboard to reach for the highest ranks. All that there is to get better in PUBG is patience. You will learn how to be better with each guide that you read, each video that you watch, and every game that you play. Do not rush for frags during the game. Instead, play steadily around the outer line of the circle and try to find better equipment in places that aren't too crowded. Rushing for clumped cities and towns where multiple cars are waiting might get you easily in trouble. Stay safe from danger but do not camp - you will have to keep moving forward to reach for better equipment. Do not be greedy for the loot and instead look for it in abandoned spots. Fight only when you are at the advantage and if you are one of the lucky finalists wait for others to reveal their positions instead of looking for them. This way you will be the one dictating the pace of the fight and you will be able to land your first shot on the enemy. It is easy to win but it is even easier to lose.
