XDefiant Ranked Play: Everything you need to know

Here's everything about XDefiant Ranked Play

Armed with a focus on competitive play, XDefiant Ranked Play is already catching the attention of players. 

Following several delays, Ubisoft's take on the arena shooter is here and for those who want even more competition after picking their faction and weaponry from the gun list. The developer has already confirmed a Ranked mode and we've got all the intel.

In this guide, find everything there is to know about XDefiant Ranked Play including the maps, modes, and the ranks for players to work through.

XDefiant Ranked Play release date

XDefiant Ranked Play will launch on May 21st, 2024, coinciding with the full launch of the game. This is great news for those wanting to jump straight into the competitive matches instead of the casual game modes.

XDefiant Ranked Play maps

Ubisoft hasn't revealed the map pool for Ranked Play but we expect to see all 14 battlefields to appear as they were available in an alpha build of Ranked Play during recent test sessions. Here's a full list of the maps:

  • Arena
  • Attica Heights
  • Dumbo

  • Emporium
  • Liberty
  • Mayday
  • Meltdown
  • Midway

When Ubisoft shares more information on the final map pool, we'll update the guide with everything there is to know. 

XDefiant Ranked Play game modes

Like other arena shooters, XDefiant Ranked Play will feature four game modes. Occupy follows a similar format to Call of Duty's Hardpoint mode while Domination sees players securing control of flags to score points. 

Escort will require players to move a payload to specific sections on the map while Zone Control will involve players playing attacking and defensive roles to secure the victory.

XDefiant Ranked Play ranks

Ubisoft hasn't shared any information surrounding the XDefiant Ranked Play ranks. The skill divisions and rank icons were all temporary during the test sessions and are likely to change one the initial build launches. 

When Ranked Play goes live, we'll updated this section with all the relevant details.

Will XDefiant Ranked Play have rewards?

If XDefiant Ranked Play follows the formula of other arena shooters, there's a chance Ubisoft will implement rewards for ending a season in a specific division or by completing certain objectives throughout a season. 

As soon as the first batch of XDefiant Ranked Play rewards is unveiled, we'll be sure to add them right here along with how to get them.
