- This article is about the CS:GO profile rank. For Skill Group ranks, see Competitive.
By playing on official game servers, players gain experience points towards the goal of increasing the player's profile Rank. When ranking up, the player also receives a weapon drop up to a maximum of one a week[Unclear, better wording needed]. During an active operation, the operation's pass holders are eligible to receive rewards exclusive to the operation's weapon collections. Players participating in the Overwatch program also gain additional experience.
Although a player's Rank is separate from the player's skill group, a profile rank of Private Rank 2 is required to be eligible for competitive matchmaking. However, a player's profile rank does not affect the player's ability to compete in casual game modes.
Although only 40 ranks exist, the player has the opportunity to reset his or her profile rank to start over. After reaching rank 40, a Get Service Medal button will appear above the rank progress bar. Clicking the button will reset the player's rank and add the service medal to the player's inventory. Once the player receives a service medal, he or she will not have to re-rank to Private Rank 2 again to play competitive match making. Starting with the November 10, 2015 patch, the service medal can now be upgraded to level 2 by hitting rank 40 a second time. The player's rank is not reset each year, but rather the rank up will count towards that year's medal.
After each match is over, the game mode's multiplier will be applied to a player's rank. Excluding competitive matches, this multiplier uses the player's score. The competitive multiplier uses the player's won rounds during a match. All multipliers are applied only after the match has finished, and will be erased if the player abandons the match early. The weekly bonus multiplies the experience you earn by 3. Additionally, the multiplier is always rounded down to the nearest decimal. The maximum amount of experience points that a player can earn in casual mode is 1,000.
|Game mode||XP multiplier|
|Arms Race||1.0 * score|
|Casual||4.0 * score|
|Competitive||30 * rounds won|
|Deathmatch||0.2 * score|
|Demolition||2.5 * score|
Note: These values may be changed at any time without notice.
Additionally, players receive boosted XP at the beginning of a weekly rank up which gradually decreases until the player receives a further reduced multiplier, drastically cutting the amount of XP received regardless of game mode.
|Bonus XP multiplier|
|Less than 4,500 XP||4.0 * gained XP|
| Between 4,500 XP|
and 7,500 XP
|2.0 * gained XP|
|Between 7,500 XP and 11,200 XP||1.0 * gained XP|
|Greater than 11,200 XP||0.175 * gained XP|
Note: These values are approximate values based on community testing.
With the introduction of Operation Wildfire, Blitz Missions were introduced which give an extra 10XP per round won.
