Crucible Rank

"A Guardian's best tool in combat is their valor. Your light must be sharp if it is to cut through our enemies." —Lord Shaxx

A progression rank that goes up when you complete Crucible matches. Complete matches back-to-back to increase your activity streak. Earn more points with higher streaks.

Starting a different ritual activity may reduce your streak.

Players can increase their rank with Lord Shaxx (sometimes referred to as Valor) by completing matches in any Crucible game mode, including Iron Banner and Trials of Osiris. Completing matches will also increase the player's Crucible activity streak, granting increased reputation rewards with each match, up to a maximum streak of 5. The player's current streak can be seen by hovering over the reputation icon on the Crucible screen in the Director. Completing Vanguard, Gambit, or Dares of Eternity activities will reduce the player's Crucible streak while adding to those activities' streaks. Players can only have a total of 5 streak progress across all four activity types, rebalancing depending on the activities completed.[1]

Each rank will reward a text-center Crucible Engram, stored on Lord Shaxx's vendor screen, which can either be decrypted into gear from the current Crucible loot pool, or focused into specific items in the Focused Decoding and Legacy Gear sub-menus. They have a maximum capacity of 99, and will disappear at the end of the season if not used.

Some weeks will feature a modifier that increases the amount of Crucible Rank points gained. When this is active, an "Increased Crucible Rank" modifier will be visible when launching Crucible activities. This modifier will be active until the next Tuesday reset. Bonus Crucible Rank weeks are usually announced the weekend before through a "Next Week in Destiny" alert in-game.

Rank can be reset to 1 after rank 16 is completed. Resetting rank once will give a chance for weapons obtained from Crucible match completions, Crucible Engram decryptions, and Focused Decoding to drop with additional Traits in the third and fourth perk columns. The chance and number of additional perks increase with each reset, up to 4 resets.[2]

Rank Multiplier

Reaching Silver tier or higher in the Competitive playlist will grant a multiplier that boosts the Crucible Rank points earned in all Crucible playlist activities, with higher tiers giving greater boosts. Competitive rank resets with each season, requiring players to complete another series of placement matches before they can earn the rank multiplier again.[3]

Focused Decoding

Lord Shaxx Focused Decoding icon.jpg

Crucible Engrams, earned by increasing one's rank with Lord Shaxx, can be focused into specific weapons and armor items with random rolls. Alternatively, they can be decrypted by claiming them directly from Shaxx's vendor screen, rewarding a random drop from the current Crucible loot pool. To focus an engram into a specific item, the item must first be unlocked in Collections.

Each item costs 1 text-center Crucible Engram, text-center25, and text-center5,000.


Decoded weapons will have one trait in the third and fourth perk columns. Resetting rank once with Lord Shaxx will give a chance for these weapons to decode or drop with additional traits in these columns. More resets will increase this chance, as well as the number of additional perks, up to 4 resets.[2]
