Crucible Valor ranks and point requirements in Destiny 2

Look at the Destiny 2 Valor ranks, the points required to reach each one, and how winning streaks work.


Destiny 2 is back to being a proper grind, Guardians. Whether it’s Infamy (Gambit), Glory (Competitive), or Valor (Non-Competitive), expect to spend dozens of hours working through the ranks of each mode. It will be less if you win lots of your matches, but still a grind. What makes it worse, though, is not knowing where you fall on the ladder. Sure, you might be at Heroic with your Valor, but where does that fall on the progression tree, how far do you have to go, and how many points do you need? Below, all those questions are answered as clearly as possible.

Destiny 2 Valor ranks

Valor Ranks Destiny 2

In total there are six Valor ranks for Guardians to work through and each have three sub ranks, save the final. Thankfully, Valor is an account-wide progression system, so you can earn Valor for your account as you play with all three different characters. This means doing weekly bounties is likely more than enough to get you through all ranks and in a position to reset your Valor within a single season. In fact, during double and triple Valor weeks and weekends, it's possible to reset your Valor five times, which is enough to unlock some of the Pinnacle weapons.

Rank Total Points Points to Next Rank
Guardian I 0 - 9 10
Guardian II 10 - 24 15
Guardian III 25 - 49 25
Brave I 50 - 109 60
Brave II 110 - 214 105
Brave III 215 - 349 135
Heroic I 350 - 419 70
Heroic II 420 - 549 130
Heroic III 550 - 699 150
Fabled I 700 - 789 90
Fabled II 790 - 939 150
Fabled III 940 - 1149 210
Mythic I 1150 - 1279 130
Mythic II 1280 - 1509 230
Mythic III 1510 - 1799 290
Legend 1800 - 2000 200

Unlike Glory ranks, you don’t lose Valor rank progress with a loss. You still earn points with a loss, although it’s far less than a win, or better yet, a winning streak. Below is a look at how wins stack up to help you pass through the Valor ranks a bit quicker.

Loss Win 1 Win 2 Win 3 Win 4 Win 5+
Guardian 10 12 17 22 27 32
Brave 10 12 17 22 27 32
Heroic 10 15 20 25 30 35
Fabled 10 17 22 27 32 37
Mythic 10 20 25 30 35 40
Legend 10 22 27 32 37 42

Much like Gambit’s Infamy ranking system, Valor has six main tiers as well as three sub-ranks to work through, except for the final rank, Legend. It’s not uncommon for Bungie to hold events that award additional XP, meaning a patient Guardian could wait until Bungie gives out double (or triple) XP, and then blast through the six Valor ranks in a single week. That’s too much Crucible in a short period of time for my liking, though.

Now that Guardians know what each of the Valor ranks are, how many points are required to progress, and what wins and losses count for at each level, consider hanging around.
