Glory Ranks are great for bragging rights and rewards in Destiny 2. Our guide will show you how to get them and how to rank up.

Published

Destiny 2’s Glory Ranks are perfect for flexing your skill and earning rewards in the Crucible. Learn what they are, how to increase your Glory Rank, and see what rewards you can acquire in the process.

Killing waves of A.I is a simple pleasure in FPS games, but there’s a different thrill when it comes to online. Destiny 2’s Crucible mode offers this with intense multiplayer action that also invites players to increase their Glory Rank and net tasty rewards.

Lots of players don’t fully understand the system and how it works, however. So we’ll walk you through the basics, such as what Glory Ranks are, how you can rank them up, and what you can get for doing so.

What are Destiny 2 Glory Ranks?

Destiny 2 uses these as a way of measuring how good a player is, and they can determine what level of rewards you can obtain.

Guardians that want to test themselves have many ranks to power through, and it can help improve your ability, leading to a more successful time doing Raids and other single-player content.

How to rank up Glory Ranks

Glory points are earned by winning matches in the Crucible – a competitive PvP mode in Destiny 2 – with enough points enabling you to move up a Glory Rank.

Taking part in the competitive playlist will allow players to fight against a variety of different skill levels as the game mode favors connection-based matchmaking as opposed to the modern-day norm of skill-based matchmaking.

The Quickplay playlist will not level up your Glory, so instead, make sure you are only sticking to Competitive Crucible modes.

All Destiny 2 Glory Ranks & points required

From beginners starting their first match at Guardian I to veterans who have managed to hit the Max rank ceiling, there are many levels to ascend.

Here is a complete list of all of the Glory Ranks.

Glory RankPoints bracketGlory points needed for next rank

As you can see, the first few ranks aren’t anything to write home about, but as you start to make some serious progress, the points needed per rank will seriously begin to mount.

But what are you doing all this work for apart from pride and honor? Destiny 2 players are also trying to acquire flashy Titles to display, along with Glory itself.

That’s it. Glory Ranks used to reward weapons, but that was changed some time ago, and cosmetic alterations are the only true, tangible rewards now.


Glory Ranks are one of the many different ways you can enjoy Destiny 2, and there are also Gambit Infamy Ranks to climb up.

The fan-voted Dino Armor has arrived in Destiny 2 with the Festival of the Lost Halloween event, so here’s how to get your hands on the long-awaited dinosaur-themed armor.

Back in March 2021, Bungie asked Destiny 2 fans whether they’d like the Festival of the Lost’s event armor to be dinosaur or monster-themed.

Dinosaurs won by a landslide, with 81% of the 200,000 votes going towards dinos.

2021’s Festival of the Lost event is here, and the Dino Armor has arrived with it in all its glory. Here’s how to get the T-Rex, triceratops, and velociraptor-themed Destiny 2 armor.

All three of the Dino Armor sets are available in Destiny 2’s in-game store until November 2, when Festival of the Lost concludes. The three dinosaur-themed sets are available to purchase with real cash or through Bright Dust, which can be earned in-game for free.

Each set costs 1,500 Silver, which is roughly $15. If you want each set, you’ll need to fork out 4,500 Silver, so the armor doesn’t come cheap.

However, if you don’t want to spend any real money, you can pay 6,000 Bright Dust to get the sets for free.

  • Psyceratops Warlock Bundle (1,500 Silver / 6,000 Bright Dust)
  • Roboraptor Hunter Bundle (1,500 Silver / 6,000 Bright Dust)

As this is an event set, you’ll need to make sure you pick them up before the Festival of the Lost concludes on November 2.

There are multiple ways players can go about acquiring the Jurassic Green Pulse Rifle in Destiny 2, such as completing an introductory quest, successfully finishing a special Lost Sector event and trading in an Ascendant Lens.

Each method is relatively straightforward, and we’ll briefly go through each one.

Introductory Quest

‘Gone But Not Forgotten’ is a quest that players can choose to complete to kick off the Festival of the Lost 2021 festivities, and if you do it, you’re guaranteed to get the Pulse Rifle.

Haunted Lost Sector event

Select to complete a ‘Haunted Lost Sector’ event – which can be accessed from the ‘Tower Courtyard’ – and the chest reward at the end has a good chance of dropping the Jurassic Green Pulse Rifle for you.

Ascendant Lens

If you took part in last year’s event and ended up with an Ascendant Lens that has been dormant in your inventory, then good news – it’s time to use it! Give it to Mara Sov, and she will thank you in the form of not one, not two, but three Jurassic green Pulse Rifles.

This is a more exclusive way of obtaining the weapon, but anyone who can do this has three chances to roll a good version of the weapon.


So there you have it, several completely different ways you can add the Jurassic Green Pulse Rifle to your Guardian’s collection.
