How Valorant Rankings Work?

Developers have always tried to make Valorant’s competitive system more complex by adding new algorithms on occasion. Millions of players from across the world spend every day grinding away at the game’s ranked servers in an effort to improve their position in the game’s overall rankings and eventually attain the highest possible rank of Radiant.

A player’s rank is determined by both their MMR and their RR. Gains or losses in RR are highly sensitive to the results of the matches.

It’s worth noting that Valorant’s rankings are made to put players against opponents of similar expertise. As a result, matches between higher-ranked players tend to be more competitive and difficult because players face off against opponents with similar skill levels.

Each player’s ranking is reset every two months according to Valorant’s competitive guidelines.

The competitive periods known as episodes often run for about six months. Each consists of three shorter Acts, each lasting roughly two months.

At the start of each Episode, players compete in five matches to determine their starting ranks, with Ascendant being the highest possible starting rank. They could drop as much as two rungs from what they were at in the prior Act.

When an Act occurs, however, the ranking of the players is temporarily hidden until they have completed one competitive match. In this way, the player can pick up right where they left off in the prior Act.

Keep in mind that the hard rank reset that occurs at the start of an Episode’s Act 1 is accompanied by a soft reset that occurs at the start of Acts 2 and 3.

However, Valorant’s ranking system seems fair and beneficial for the time being, while favoring wins over individual player skills. Since this is a team competition, individual performance in terms of RR should reflect the team’s overall success.

Valorant is a remarkable first-person shooter because of the special combination of action, strategy, and teamwork it delivers. This fast-paced, competitive game caters to a wide audience because of its several game types, character customization options, and an arsenal of weapons.

Players’ RR gains, beyond the victory rate, are also affected by how well they play in the match. In Valorant, while the basic concept of the competitive system may appear simple, the core behind awarding rankings and MMR is far more complex.

This page will explain the RR gain mechanism and its recent adjustments, including the Episode 6 reset.

There are a number of different game modes in Valorant, with “Deathmatch” and “Unrated” being two of the most well-known. For points in Deathmatch, players strive to eliminate as many opponents as possible in a set amount of time. 

Valorant’s central focus on cooperation and planning is one of the game’s most distinctive characteristics. If they want to win, the players will have to coordinate their efforts and talk to each other. It’s crucial for everyone to do their part and rally around the rest of the squad if they want to succeed as a team.

The in-game money, Radiant Points, can be used to buy a wide range of items including weapons within Valorant. You may earn them by playing the game or buying them with real money.


If you want to know how to climb the ranks in Valorant, you need to know that you can do so by racking up experience points while you play. An individual’s standing in the rankings is determined by their position within a hierarchical structure.

Starting at Iron and going all the way up to Immortal, the Valorant rating system has eight distinct levels. Except for the very highest tier, which only contains one division, there are four sublevels in each of the lower three levels.

Players begin at the Iron tier’s lowest division and can rise up the tiers by gaining experience and winning games. Players will rise in the ranks as they accrue points for victories. Any time a team loses a match, they must start over from scratch and lose points.

In order to move forward in a given tier and division, you’ll need a certain number of points. The point requirement to move from Iron tier Division 4 to Iron tier Division 3 is often lower than the point requirement to move from Platinum tier Division 1 to Platinum tier Division 2.

In addition to gaining points by performing well in games, players can lose them by quitting a contest early or receiving a penalty for toxic behavior.

New Agent skins and other cosmetic things are unlocked as a player rises through the ranks. Players that achieve higher rankings, such as Gold or Platinum, will gain access to exclusive in-game experiences and benefits.
