Ranked is the competitive mode for Dirty Bomb where players have a chance to show off their skill level and earn limited edition ranked items.
Earning Ranks Edit
Players are given a rank after playing 10 placement matches. A player is assigned a rank depending on their win/loss ratio , game outcome, individual performance per match, and previous ranks in past season. There are 19 ranks in total including Bronze (level 5 - 1), Silver (level 5 - 1), Gold (level 5 - 1), Cobalt (level 3 - 1) and Elite. They help to keep the skill balanced between teams, hence no more "gold"-leveled players will have to compete against "bronze"-leveled and the other way round.
Players have the chance to earn limited edition ranked items at the end of each season, assuming they have played a minimum of 10 placement matches. Starting with Pre-Season and into Season 2, players have the opportunity to earn Limited Edition Ranked Trinkets. As of Season 2 players can now earned Limited Edition Ranked Loadout Cards.
Pre-season started in early open beta and ended February 29th, 2016.
