Glory Ranks in Destiny 2 are strictly limited to Competitive Crucible. This means if you want to unlock many of the high-tier Pinnacle weapons, you will need to dive into Competitive Crucible and start earning Glory.
The difficulty of this, aside from frustrating matchmaking, terrible teammates, and getting stomped by 3-stacks, is figuring out how many points you need to level up to the next Glory rank. In the following tables, you will find the information to help you work out how many points lie between you and Fabled I, as well as how many points you can potentially earn from wins and win-streaks.
As mentioned above, you can only acquire Glory from Competitive Crucible. Do not spend your time playing Quickplay, as that will only level up your Valor Rank. Outside of Valor and Glory, there are also Infamy Ranks than you can level up, albeit this is exclusive to Gambit.
Updated on July 15, 2019: The tables below have been updated after xxCH3M1STxx reached out to provide new information. You can use his Google Sheet to track your progress and warn you when the weekly reset will bump you to Fabled.

Competitive Crucible Glory Ranks and point requirements
A recent change to Destiny 2 saw each Glory Rank divided into three sub-levels. As you level up and hit a new bracket, you will receive a reward. In the table below, find your current Glory Rank in the left column then look to the right column to see how many points you need to move to the next rank.
|Rank||Total Points||Points to Next Rank|
|Guardian I||0 - 39||40|
|Guardian II||40 - 109||70|
|Guardian III||110 - 199||90|
|Brave I||200 - 369||170|
|Brave II||370 - 664||295|
|Brave III||665 - 1049||385|
|Heroic I||1050 - 1259||210|
|Heroic II||1260 - 1624||365|
|Heroic III||1625 - 2099||475|
|Fabled I||2100 - 2379||280|
|Fabled II||2380 - 2869||490|
|Fabled III||2870 - 3499||630|
|Mythic I||3500 - 3879||380|
|Mythic II||3880 - 4544||665|
|Mythic III||4545 - 5449||905|

Glory Points - Win Streaks and Losses
To make the fight to Fabled Glory Rank even harder, the amount of Glory you earn for each win diminishes with every rank. However, win-streaks net you even more points. Unfortunately, a loss will cause you to lose points. The higher your rank, the fewer points you win per match and the more you lose with each loss.
However, to smooth the path to Fabled, Bungie implemented some changes to how Glory was lost in Shadowkeeps’ update 184.108.40.206:
Whenever you lose a match, your Glory streak will no longer reset, instead, the streak will be reduced by 2. This should make keeping a 5 win streak easier, as a loss will only drop you to a 3 win streak instead of resetting.
Secondly, you cannot lose Glory ranks below Fabled 1. This means if you make it to Brave 1, you will not fall back down to Guardian III if you earn consecutive losses, despite technically losing Glory. On top of this, the amount of Glory you lose takes into account your kill-death ratio and performance. The better you perform, the less Glory you will lose when you incur a loss.
Finally, your Glory rank will adjust faster depending on your skill. While there are no clear numbers here, it sounds like the better you perform, the faster you will accrue Glory.
This last point makes the following table slightly incorrect. While these are still the base values for wins, the amount you lose for losses is entirely dynamic. There are reports of players losing as little as 4 points while others lose 12, 28, and even 40. This is a drastic reduction from the 60-80 points from previous seasons.
|Rank||Loss||1 Win||2 Wins||3 Wins||4 Wins||5 Wins|
It’s currently unknown whether the following remains true as of the release of Shadowkeep. But given the changes to how Glory is lost and the bracket-loss protection, there’s not as much importance placed on these weekly bumps.
Prior to the release of Shadowkeep, players could expect the following Glory points to be awarded to them if they played at least three matches of Competitive in the week:
- Guardian: 160
- Brave: 160
- Heroic: 120
- Fabled: 80
- Mythic: 0
- Legend: -80
Quickest way to Fabled Glory Rank
Much like the previous information, the quickest way to Fabled Glory Rank has changed slightly. While you are still rewarded for consecutive wins, there’s no longer the pressure of losing Glory Ranks below Fabled 1. Keep in mind you can still lose ranks while within a bracket. For example, you can still drop from Brave III to Brave I, just not betwen major ranks.
The previous work of xxCH3M1STxx can still be applied with some accuracy. Provided the points per rank are correct, it should still only take 16 consecutive wins to reach Fabled 1. In fact, it may take fewer wins depending how the Glory adjusts to match player skill.
If you have a perfect 50-50 win-loss ratio, it should definitely take you less than 450 matches to reach Fabled this time around.
Reaching Fabled Glory Rank in Competitive Crucible is no easy task. At the moment, the reward for climbing this mountain is The Recluse Pinnacle weapon, a powerful submachine gun. Head over to the Shacknews Destiny 2 guide for more Crucible and Gambit breakdowns.
