How to increase your Destiny 2 Gambit Infamy Rank: Tips, how to reset & rewards

You can earn some great rewards by increasing your Gambit Infamy Rank in Destiny 2, so here’s how to rank up and reset when the time comes.



The Drifter in Destiny 2

As you play Destiny 2’s Gambit mode, you’ll start increasing your Gambit Infamy Rank where you can earn unique weapons and armor. Here’s how to increase your Gambit Rank in Season of the Lost.

Destiny 2 retired the name ‘Infamy Rank’ with the Season of the Lost update, but old habits die hard, and this is what much of the player base still calls Gambit Ranks. This is the leveling system for Destiny 2’s competitive PvPvE experience – Gambit.

As you play matches of Gambit, you’ll start to earn Gambit Ranks which unlock bragging rights, weapons, and armor.

Here’s everything you need to know about increasing your Gambit Rank in Season of the Lost.

Destiny 2 Gambit Infamy Ranks

As you increase your Gambit Rank in Destiny 2, you’ll progress into different Ranks. There are six divisions, with the first five containing three subdivisions.

Once you reach Legend and achieve 10,000 Total points, you can reset your Rank and start all over again.

How to increase Destiny 2 Gambit Infamy Rank

Luckily, all you have to do is play Gambit to increase your Gambit Rank. You won’t lose any points for suffering a defeat, so it should be relatively stress-free. However, there are certain things you can do to increase how quickly you rank up.

Here’s everything you can do to increase your Gambit Rank quickly.

Win Gambit matches

This may sound like an obvious tip, but playing the objective and going for wins will vastly increase the speed at which you increase your Rank.

Losing games of Gambit won’t lower your Rank, but you’ll earn next to no Infamy, so you should really focus on playing for the win.

Rack up a win streak

Winning games will increase your Gambit Rank, but winning consecutive games will be a major help. For each game won in a row, you’ll continue to earn more and more points – up until five wins in a row where the max points are capped.

This is no easy feat, but players with the skill to pull off a win streak will be greatly rewarded.

Go in a Gambit Activity Streak

Destiny 2 highly incentivizes players to go on an Activity Streak. This is much the same as the win streak but isn’t dependent on winning games. You just need to keep queuing into Gambit uninterrupted, and you’ll continue to rack up points.

Play during Double Infamy weeks

Every once in a while, Destiny 2 will offer players Double Infamy weeks. There’s no confirmation on when the next will arrive, but it’s well-worth playing during these events.

Once you’ve claimed the Shard, your Gambit Rank will be reset and the Ascendant Shard will be replaced with an Exotic Engram.

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.

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
Guardian I0-3940
Guardian II40-10970
Guardian III110-19990
Brave I200-369170

Mythic I3500-3879380
Mythic II3880-4544665
Mythic III4545-5449905

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.

Glory Ranks rewards

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.
