Battlefield 4 ranks


Battlefield 4 ranksBattlefield 4 ranks go from Private, all the way up to Colonel (and perhaps even General). On each step, players get one of the unlocks, which could be a weapon, or specialization, or camouflage, etc. When starting out in multiplayer, Battlefield 4 ranks are fairly easy to achieve and only require a few thousand points. As players progress, ranking up takes longer and longer and becomes more challenging. Players can check their progress using the Battlefield 4 stats feature.

Battlefield 4 ranks list

Players start out as a Private (rank 0), and can rank up all the way to Colonel, which is rank 45 (based on BF3 rankings). After Colonel is achieved, players simply keep receiving rank values up to Colonel 100. However, unlocks are no longer given out, as everything has been unlocked by rank 45.

Here’s a list of some of the important Battlefield 4 ranks:

  • Private first class (starting rank)
  • Lance Corporal
  • Corporal
  • Sergeant
  • Staff Sergeant
  • Gunnery Sergeant
  • Master Sergeant
  • Sergeant Major
  • Warrant Officer One
  • Second Lieutenant
  • First Lieutenant
  • Captain
  • Major
  • Lt. Colonel
  • Colonel
  • Brigadier
  • General

Each time players ranks up, they are awarded not just regular awards, but also unlocks. These unlocks can range from single weapons, to larger bundles called Battlefield 4 Battlepacks.

You can check out every single rank in the image below. Notice that the awards and badges have been properly spaced this time around to cover all 100 ranks (click the image for higher-res view).

      Its not… really… Though there is a few problems, the game runs smoothly, and people seem to keep playing it despite. If the bugs ruin your gameplay, you were never that good to begin with. Luck favors the good shooter.

        Uh, no. This game is riddled with bugs and I doubt that the game freezing has anything to do with skill.

          I agree with JOE! does NOT mean mine (or others) skills are LACKING because the game is filled with BUGS. and I know I keep playing because I DID spend the money on it so not going to give up! It will however prevent me from buying FUTURE battlefield games!

            You guys just suck I bet you’re the noobs getting like 17 kills and 4 deaths, pathetic. Get a minimum of 30 kills and 5 deaths then maybe you get right to say it’s the bugs and not just you sucking in game tahahahaha

    Its easy to start playing BF4 even as a FPS expert with lightning reflexes and aiming and get still shredded constantly by crossfire etc. So yes its skill and BF4 is the best FPS I’ve played so far.. 32 vs 32 is unbeatable.. squad play is great.. maps are good.. crashes suck but hopefully it’ll be worked out (3rd month after launch and I’m crashing more than before.. lol)

      Just run operation lockers. Be a medic. run the spec that has two medkits (when you get there) drop the medkits in the corners of the rooms where everyone fights through a tunnel. Spam lvg grenade launcher incessantly. Keep dropping those medkits. Keep spamming. I’ve gone up a whole rank in one match before.

    Its funny that you trolls are taking the time to look at this post even though you guys think its a broken game. If you don’t like bf4, then why are you looking at posts related to it. Its so hypocritical! Bf4 has its problems but I’m confident that the dev team will fix it, or at least get it on par with bf3

    If your playing BF4 with your friends, and you look at your current online friends list, you’ll see that theres a status saying:

    “Playing Battlefield 4 in [mapX] As a soldier”.

    Does this status change when you rank up or will it always say as a soldier?

      It’s in the soldier position. there is Commander, and Soldier. Soldier is boots on the ground action, Commander is send missiles in every once and a while, be tactical action.
