Rank 10 Badge next to level display, found under the character portrait.

Rank is a mechanic that was added upon full release of the RWBY: Grimm Eclipse on July 5th 2016. Each Rank has a set of challenges to complete before you can unlock the next rank. These challenges involve things like killing enemies, collecting artifacts, destroying breakables, team attacks, reviving other players, and levelling up characters to max (level 10). Currently all rank does is add a cool badge next to your level in game, and reaching rank 10 is tied to the 'Beacon Graduate' Achievement.

Tips and Tricks Edit

  • Working together with other people completely trivialise a large number of these challenges, e.g. MVP is guaranteed yours if you're playing with people who aren't trying.
  • Turret kills do count as kills for progression. Turret MVP does not count as wave MVP for progression.
  • The large tanks in Merlot's Lab give a lot of XP upon destruction, after destroying them you can get KO'd to enemies in the room to reset it, giving you a lot of XP very quickly if you need it to level.
  • If you're having trouble getting your hit streaks, Blake's Stun Blades can rack that up very quickly.
  • A Mastery challenge is a challenge to unlock an ability, eg most of the Tier 3 Upgrades for abilities. Keep in mind every character has one for getting to max level, maxing characters contributes to this.
  • Upping the difficulty on Solo play will increase the enemy spawns, allowing you to get more kills faster.
  • Wave MVP is when you contribute the most to the wave. Getting kills specifically or reviving teammates are large contributors to this.
  • A Flawless wave is when no damage is done to the node you are protecting. Blake's Stun Blades allow large crowd control for this.
  • If you really want to get the assists for rank 7 on singleplayer, you can with enough patience. As Boarbatusks, Ursai, and Ursa Majors damage themselves when they become stunned - after a missed charge or a rock attack - it counts as an assist as you didn't get the final blow.
