Riot Games has answered the call of many players with the recent addition of a competitive mode to its first-person shooter of Valorant. The community now has the opportunity to rank up through the various ranks that are currently in the game and prove their skills to the rest of the tactical shooter's community. Fortunately, we have everything you need to know when it comes to how to rank up in Valorant covered for you.
How to Rank Up in Valorant
Now, there are eight total ranks that players can achieve in the competitive mode of Valorant. Seven of these eight ranks each have three different tiers that players must rise through to reach the next level. The highest level is the only one that does not have three different tiers within it.
The progress to which players will rank up depends on a couple of factors. The most important one is wins and losses, as a string of multiple wins in a row will be the most impactful way for players to rank up and get through each of the rankings the fastest. Putting together various losses in a row will be what hurts the ranking of a player the most.
However, the ranking system also takes into account individual performance heavily. Players who perform very well in their wins will rank up faster than players who have sub-par and poor performances in wins. This also goes for losses where players who play very well in a loss will not take as big of a hit as those who have sub-par and poor performances in losses. It also will take into account how decisively your team wins or loses. This consideration means that your team will be rewarded for beating a team handily where a team will be walloped when it comes to losing rank if they are beaten handily.
Winning the most as possible and putting up solid performances on the scoreboard are the best things you can do to rank up higher in Valorant. However, do not fret if every match is not the perfect one, as the ranking system for the game takes into account multiple things and will reward you when it should and punish your ranking progress when you deserve it. Strong communication with your teammates and fundamental play will be vital components for players when they are trying to rank up as high as possible and reach the ultimate status of Valorant.
