Watch_Dogs 2: Everything You Need To Know About the Leaderboards - Updated

30/05/2017 12:00 PM

We’ve completely revamped our Leaderboards UI. Leaderboards should now be easier to read and offer you a better picture of where you stand among the masses, as well as what you need to do to rank up. You’ll need to check your standing more regularly, as you can now lose rank if you aren’t continuing to fight for your position over the course of each Season. That said, seasonal rewards at Silver and Gold level cannot be lost once those ranks are achieved. Additionally, you’ll no longer receive the rewards at the end of the Season; rewards will show up in your in-game wardrobe as soon as you achieve the appropriate rank

Here are the top things you need to know about Leaderboards in Watch_Dogs 2

1. The Leaderboards system is accessible through your in-game smartphone after completing an objective in the “Walk In the Park” mission. The Leaderboards App will appear on the first page of the smartphone.

2. Each Leaderboard Season lasts three (3) weeks, or 21 days. At the start of each new Season, the scores are wiped and every player begins at the Recruit rank again. New Seasons will be announced in the Leaderboards App.

3. In the Leaderboards App, you will see that there are five (5) separate types of leaderboards, each with their own points and ranking system: Co-op Operations, Hacking Invasions, Bounty Hunter, Showdown and Online Racing.

4. You earn points toward the Leaderboards by completing these online activities. Even if you lose a match, you will still earn points. Playing any of these three activities will generate a score for their respective leaderboards.

5. Divisions are based on percentages, not a number of points. The points required to reach each Division will vary, based on the number of players that are playing each mode and their overall performance.

6. Divisions unlock as the Season goes on. For example, at the very start of the Season only Bronze Division will be available for players. A few days later, Silver will unlock, then Gold, and so on.

7. If you quit or disconnect before the end of the match, you will receive zero points, but the player who remains in the match will still receive points – so always finish out your match!

8. There are six (6) divisions for each online activity’s Leaderboards. From highest to lowest, they are: Master, Diamond, Gold, Silver, Bronze, Recruit.


9. Each of these divisions (except for Recruit and Master) is then split into five (5) additional mini-divisions, with 5 being the highest rank and 1 being the lowest (Bronze 1 < Bronze 2 < Bronze 3 < Bronze 4 < Bronze 5; Gold 1 < Gold 2 … < Gold 5, etc.)

rankstable

10. You cannot lose points for bad performance during a match, but you can lose rank. Since Divisions represent a percentage of the total player population, if you stop playing multiplayer or are outperformed by other players, you will fall back to lower Divisions. 

seasonstats

11. Rewards earned from your division in the Leaderboard will be added automatically to your in-game wardrobe as soon as you attain the rank. There are two (2) rewards to earn each Season. The first is essentially a participation reward – play a few multiplayer matches and you’re bound to reach Silver rank to unlock it. The next reward is the second piece of the set – you want to attain Gold rank or higher to earn this item. These are exclusive items that can only be earned by playing multiplayer online activities. These items are themed sets alternating between hacking culture and real-life events. 

ranks

12. You can compare your division to your friends and challenge them to online activities directly from the Leaderboards app in-game. The rewards are uniquely-themed by Seasons. So once you get that Season’s reward, you won’t be able to get it again in another Season.

13. We have added a new tab to the Leaderboards App: History. This tab will show the rank you achieved in past seasons for each multiplayer activity. Please note that history will begin to be tracked for the next Season beginning May 22nd and will not include history from any earlier Seasons.

HISTORY

Open the Leaderboards app on the second page in the in-game smartphone to check out the changes! As always, share your best multiplayer moments with us @watchdogsgame or on our community-run subreddit.
