The new PUBG Ranked system will replace Survival Title in PUBG Update 7.2, which hit test servers Wednesday and moves on to live servers later this month.

Survival Title assigned PUBG players a ranking regardless of the game mode in which they competed, Ranked will only count matches played in the new and separate Ranked mode, making it more akin to traditional competitive modes in multiplayer shooters.

PUBG Update 7.2 Console Release Date Set for May 26

Ranked will appear as a navigation option under the "Play" section of the primary navigation menu. It will offer first-person and third-person squads and allow for one-, two-, or three-person squads. A squad can't enter the queue if two players are more than 10 divisions apart or, in some regions and on some platforms, if they have failed to reach a minimal level of Survival Master.

Ranked matches will max out at 64 players but will have no bots. Matches will be played on a random mix of Erangel, Miramar and Sanhok. Loot spawns are increased, crossbows, red zones and motor gliders have been removed. The Blue Zone will move more quickly.

There are six tiers of Ranks — bronze, silver, gold, platinum, diamond, and master — each with five Divisions. After playing five placement matches, players will receive their starting rank. Players' ranks will increase or decrease after each match according to their performance as determined by their number of kills and assists, plus their personal placement.

PUBG Update 7.2 PC Release Date Set for May 20

Players ranked diamond or above will face rank decay if they don't play any Ranked games for a week or more in a row.

Players will receive rewards based on their their highest ranked tier that season including a nameplate and emblem recognizing their tier. Gold or higher will earn a set of Ranked reward skins.

Player accomplishments in the Survival Title system won't be erased as legacy Survival Title season data will still be accessible in the Season navigation tab.

PUBG Update 7.2 will hit live servers May 20 for PC and May 26 for console.
