So I keep asking myself, wether there is a correlation between the rank I have and the reward I get. is it the same when I level up to lvl 2 and when I lvl up to lvl 25?

  • These are two separate questions, I'd recommend removing one and posting it as another question

There is no correlation between your matchmaking rank or profile rank and the quality of weapon drops you receive.

Weapon drops are purely randomized in a way that makes sense: the lowest-quality weapon skins (industrial grade) are the most common while the highest-quality weapon skins (covert) are the rarest. The chances of getting a covert skin in any match are less than 0.1%.

Note: This is separate from Operation-induced drops. In Operations, such as Bloodhound, ranking up gets you a Bloodhound drop. These will automatically be at least slightly better than any non-Operation drop.

  • i am not talking about my matchmaking rank, I talk about the level of my account (you gain xp for matches, at certain points you level up)

  • @rqstr Sorry, misread. It's still the same for profile rank, but I'll update my answer anyway.

  • Can you get covert items in normal matchmaking? Oct 2, 2015 at 8:33
  • @h0ch5tr4355 Yes. You can find videos of people getting Dragon Lore as a drop.
