How To Earn Renown

Renown is a free-to-earn in-game currency that is used to unlock Operators or buy Items and supplies. Additionally, I found out that winning a ranked or standard match gives you twice the amount of Renown compared to Quick Match.

Here are some ways to obtain Renown:

  • Daily Challenges: Completing Daily challenges will give you an additional 250 Renowns.
  • Multiplayer Matches: Playing multiplayer matches is also a good way to earn Renown.
  • Weekly Challenges: Remember to complete the weekly challenges that are available in Ubisoft Club.
  • Situation Match: Each star earned in a situation match will give you an additional of 200 renown.

Renown boosters are available in some free tiers of the Battle pass. These boosters increase the amount of Renown earned at the end of the match. The effects of each booster on earning Renown are as follows:

  • Renown bonus increases by 100%.
  • Teammates will receive a 10% bonus.
  • If you have an entire team with active Boosters, you will receive a 50% increase.
  • Stacking boosters can provide a total of up to +190% bonus Renown.

My Thoughts On Operators

I think the most efficient way to unlock Operators is by earning Renown, which is free and easy to earn. However, make sure to unlock the ones that suit your playstyle first, as there are over 70 operators.
