When enough experience is accumulated, the character will increase in Battle Rank (BR).
One certification point is awarded for each Battle Rank increase, except at BR6, 12, 18, 24, 25, 28, 30, 32, 34, 36, 38, and 40. At BR40, the character automatically learns every certification available. These certifications allow the character to utilize additional vehicles, weapons and armor classes.
Newly created characters begin at battle rank 1 and can reach Battle Rank 40.
Benefits of reaching higher Battle Rank include Uniform Upgrades and character Implants.
- BR6 - First Implant
- BR12 - Second Implant
- BR18 - Third Implant
These changes happen at BR7, BR14 and BR25.
- Terran Republic: The uniform starts out mostly grey, it get's a little more red, and a bit darker grey at BR7, it becomes almost completely red at BR14 and almost completely black at BR25.
- New Conglomerate: The uniform starts out mostly blue, it acquires more gold 'trim' at BR7, it gets completely gold at BR14 and almost completely black/dark blue at BR25.
- Vanu Sovereignty: The uniform starts out mostly purple, it gets a little more teal at BR7, even more teal at BR14 and gets mostly black at BR25.
