What is Apex Legends Mobile Ranking System?
Similar to its competitive rivals, such as PUBG Mobile and Call Of Duty Mobile, this game also brings an exciting ranked mode. In the ranked mode players can play competitively and reach new ranks to show their skills in the world of Apex Legends Mobile. Apex Legends Mobile’s new ranked mode has unexpectedly been polished very well since the start.
This can be attributed to the game being a huge success on the PC/console platforms already. So they already have their homework done when it comes to the game itself.
The first rank in the game is Bronze, where every player starts off when he joins ranked matches. Just like Call Of Duty mobile uses XP, Apex Legend Mobile uses RP (ranked points). This ranked mode slightly differs from the ranked mode of the original Apex Legends on the PC/console platforms. This is because in the mobile app version of the game you have to unlock the ranked mode.
How to Unlock the Ranked Mode
As mentioned above the Ranked mode in Apex legends Mobile is not unlocked from get get-go. For unlocking the ranked mode, a player has to start playing normal unranked matches in order to earn experience points. After playing for a while when a player reaches level 8 in the game, he can unlock ranked mode.
Every player must start rank matches at the Bronze ranking which is the first rank of the game. Bronze rank does not require you to stack up RP as it is the starting rank. There is no limit to how many players can be in a single rank. The exception of the last and topmost rank “Apex Predator”, which only the best 750 players can achieve at a time.
Ranking Mode Mechanics
As we mentioned earlier when a player reaches level 8 and unlocks ranked mode, they start at Bronze Rank. Playing in the ranked matches a player needs to use his earned RP to start the match. The amount of RP needed to start a ranked match depends on the overall rank of the player.
The higher the rank, the more ranked points (RP) are needed. If a player does not do well in the match they lose the RP that they used to start the match. If the player ranks high in the match he can gain more RP. The maximum amount of RP possible to earn through a battle royale match is 250. The amount of RP earned is determined through the ranked survival, kill, assists, and revives of the player.
In similar mobile games such as PUBG Mobile and Call of Duty Mobile, if u lose your touch you can go down to the last possible rank after losing a great number of games. But in the ranked mode of Apex legends mobile, a player can not be demoted to a lower rank until the seasonal reset.
Even if the player keeps on not doing well in any matches they still don’t get demoted. At most a player can fall to, is to the same rank he has already achieved. They will stay there for as long as they do not earn more RP. The season resets of Apex Legend Mobile should occur every 2 to 3 months.
Apex Legends Mobile Ranking System Rewards
Ranked matches in several games hand out rewards to the player when they reach a new rank. Games, such as Valorant for PC, give you gun buddies that you can attach to your personal weapon. In Call Of Duty Mobile the game gives you skins and Avatar frames, which can only be obtained through reaching that rank.
Similar to that, Apex Legends Mobile also gives rewards to the player when they reach new ranks in the game. You get better rewards the higher the rank you obtain through playing ranked matches. These rewards for reaching new ranks are different every new season.
After the season is reset a player goes down a few ranks and loses his place in the rank he had. Though he does not lose the rewards he has already earned in the previous season. Though the player has to climb up the ranks once more.

You need to use every advantage available to earn some extra points in the ranked matches. Here are some tips and tricks to help you rank up faster in Apex Legends Mobile:
- The first thing you need to do as a new player to Apex Legend Mobile is to play normal matches so you can be familiarized with the maps and weapons.

Knowing what weapons to choose in a situation, the best can also give you quite an advantage in ranked matches.
- Befriend teammates to play ranked matches with. Unlike playing with random players, when you play with a friend as your teammate you can understand them better and have better communication. This improves overall teamwork and significantly reduces the chances of you losing a match.
- Make sure your team has a variety of classes, so it can fill the gaps in your team’s offense or defense. If you can not go for 3 different classes, try to at least go for 2 different ones in every game.
- It is best if you prioritize survival more than getting kills in the battle royale. If u get into the top teams to survive you can earn more RP than getting more kills but dying early on into the game.
