Featured Armor

Vanguard Rank

"A Guardian's word is only as strong as their reputation. And the Vanguard doesn't forget." —Commander Zavala

Complete strikes and Seasonal activities to gain Vanguard Rank points. Complete them back-to-back to increase your activity streak. Earn more Rank points with higher streaks for higher difficulty Nightfalls.

Starting a different ritual activity may reduce your streak.

Players can increase their rank with Zavala by completing Vanguard activities, including strikes and Nightfalls. Completing activities will also increase the player's Vanguard 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 Vanguard screen in the Director. Completing Crucible, Gambit, or Dares of Eternity activities will reduce the player's Vanguard 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]

Rank can be reset to 1 after rank 16 is completed. Each rank reset will allow weapons obtained from Vanguard activity completions and Legendary engram icon1.png Vanguard Gear engrams to drop with additional Traits in the third and fourth perk columns, up to 4.[2]
