As you play Destiny 2’s Gambit mode, you’ll start increasing your Gambit Infamy Rank where you can earn unique weapons and armor. Here’s how to increase your Gambit Rank in Season of the Lost.
Destiny 2 retired the name ‘Infamy Rank’ with the Season of the Lost update, but old habits die hard, and this is what much of the player base still calls Gambit Ranks. This is the leveling system for Destiny 2’s competitive PvPvE experience – Gambit.
As you play matches of Gambit, you’ll start to earn Gambit Ranks which unlock bragging rights, weapons, and armor.
Here’s everything you need to know about increasing your Gambit Rank in Season of the Lost.

Destiny 2 Gambit Infamy Ranks
As you increase your Gambit Rank in Destiny 2, you’ll progress into different Ranks. There are six divisions, with the first five containing three subdivisions.
|Rank||Rank name||Total Points||Points to Rank up|
Once you reach Legend and achieve 10,000 Total points, you can reset your Rank and start all over again.
How to increase Destiny 2 Gambit Infamy Rank
Luckily, all you have to do is play Gambit to increase your Gambit Rank. You won’t lose any points for suffering a defeat, so it should be relatively stress-free. However, there are certain things you can do to increase how quickly you rank up.

Here’s everything you can do to increase your Gambit Rank quickly.
Win Gambit matches
This may sound like an obvious tip, but playing the objective and going for wins will vastly increase the speed at which you increase your Rank.
Losing games of Gambit won’t lower your Rank, but you’ll earn next to no Infamy, so you should really focus on playing for the win.
Rack up a win streak
Winning games will increase your Gambit Rank, but winning consecutive games will be a major help. For each game won in a row, you’ll continue to earn more and more points – up until five wins in a row where the max points are capped.
This is no easy feat, but players with the skill to pull off a win streak will be greatly rewarded.
Go in a Gambit Activity Streak
Destiny 2 highly incentivizes players to go on an Activity Streak. This is much the same as the win streak but isn’t dependent on winning games. You just need to keep queuing into Gambit uninterrupted, and you’ll continue to rack up points.
Play during Double Infamy weeks
Every once in a while, Destiny 2 will offer players Double Infamy weeks. There’s no confirmation on when the next will arrive, but it’s well-worth playing during these events.
How to reset Gambit Infamy Rank in Destiny 2
You can reset your Gambit Rank in Destiny 2 by speaking to the Drifter and claiming the Ascendant Shard.
Here’s how to reset your Destiny 2 Infamy Rank:
- Reach Legend and then hit the max level (10,000 points)
- Go to the Tower and speak with the Drifter
- Claim the Ascendant Shard
Once you’ve claimed the Shard, your Gambit Rank will be reset and the Ascendant Shard will be replaced with an Exotic Engram.
Destiny 2 Gambit Infamy Rank rewards
Here are all of the rewards you’ll earn for increasing your Gambit Infamy Rank. Some rewards can only be earned after resetting your rank, which we’ve marked in the list below.
- Rank up: Legendary Engram
- Division Rank up: Prime Engram
- Rank 4: 3 Enhancement Cores
