With the new Rocket Racing mode in Fortnite upon us, how exactly does the Ranked system work? Rocket Racing will have its own Ranked Seasons, but they may work differently than you think.

Some ranks actually differ gameplay wise and will allow you to play different types of tracks. If you think you have what it takes to climb the ranks, here’s how it works.

Rocket Racing: Ranked Seasons, explained

Season Zero is the beginning, which comes with Season Zero Ranked. Each Season that passes will also have a Ranked system with eight different tiers. Here’s how the Ranked and eight tiers system will work in Fortnite Rocket Racing.

Ranked tiers

  • Bronze (I/II/III)
  • Silver (I/II/III)
  • Gold (I/II/III)
  • Platinum (I/II/III)
  • Diamond (I/II/III)
  • Elite
  • Champion
  • Unreal

Each rank besides the final three has three divided tiers of their own. You start at Bronze I, then work your way up to Bronze II, Bronze III, Silver I, and so on. While these tiers may mean nothing to you besides bragging rights, there’s something special that happens at Diamond and Unreal.

The more you climb the ranks, the more race tracks you’ll unlock. At Diamond rank, you’ll unlock all the tracks available in Ranked.

Once you reach Unreal rank, you get to stay in that ranking no matter how you perform in future races. You’ll also be able to see your numbered standing among other Unreal-ranked players around the world with the Unreal Leaderboard.

How matchmaking works

If you’re playing Rocket Racing by yourself, you’ll get matched alongside other players with the same or similar rank. But what if you’re in a party with another player or two? At this point, you’ll be matched with players of the same or similar rank to the highest-ranked player in your party.

Another good thing is that if your higher-ranking friend has access to more tracks, you also get to play those tracks when you’re in their party.

And of course, there will be a Rank reset at the end of each season. The rank you start at during the next Season depends on the rank you finished at from the Season prior.
