I have recently played some DM and some of the players on the server were bragging about how they were Silver 2 without playing a single game of competitive. Is this possible and if yes then how is it achieved?

    It's a silly question, hence, you CAN'T rank up with out playing competitive mode. The rank is based on your competitive game play. – Sickest Nov 17 '14 at 9:30

You cannot rank up without playing competitive games, nor can you ever get a rank without playing a few competitive games.

From the CS:GO Blog:

Q. Where can I see my own Skill Group?

A. Once your Skill Group has settled and you have won 10 competitive matches, your Skill Group will be displayed on the main menu.
