Earning SR

You earn SR depending on where your squad places in the match, as well as for how many kills and assists you get. The higher your squad places, the more SR you get!

Placement SR:

  • Teams Remaining: 14: SR = 0
  • Teams Remaining: 10: SR = 15
  • Teams Remaining: 8: SR = 30
  • Teams Remaining: 6: SR = 45
  • Teams Remaining: 5: SR = 60
  • Teams Remaining: 4: SR = 80
  • Teams Remaining: 3: SR = 100
  •  Teams Remaining: 2: SR = 125
  • Teams Remaining: 1: SR = 150

Kills & Assists SR:

  • Teams Remaining: 9+: SR Per Kill/Assist = 5. SR Per Non-Assisted Kill = 2
  • Teams Remaining: 8: SR Per Kill/Assist = 7. SR Per Non-Assisted Kill = 3
  • Teams Remaining: 3: SR Per Kill/Assist = 15. SR Per Non-Assisted Kill = 7

The SR for kills and assists increases depending on how many squads are left. Therefore, you’ll still want to play aggressively, even at the end of the match!

Seasonal SR Challenges

You can also earn bonus SR for completing the following Seasonal SR Challenges:

  • First Kill or Assist: +100 SR
  • 10 Kills or Assists: +100 SR
  • 25 Kills or Assists: +100 SR
  • 50 Kills or Assists: +100 SR
  • 100 Kills or Assists: +100 SR
  • Reach Top 8 Squad: +100 SR
  • Reach Top 5 Squad: +100 SR
  • Reach Top 3 Squad: +100 SR
  • Win a Match: +200 SR

You can only complete each of these challenges once per season, but they’re certainly a nice way to rank up fast at the beginning of the season!

SR Fees

Ranked Play also has two kinds of SR Fees once you reach Silver 1. These are fees for deploying into a Ranked Resurgence match and every time you die within a game.

As you climb the ranks, the Deployment Fees and Death Fees increase, meaning that you need to be increasingly careful as you rise up the ranks. Otherwise, you could end up dropping down a Skill Division or two!
