In Call of Duty: WWII’s Ranked Play, players battle through seasons under competitive rules and settings to rise the ranks and earn exclusive Ranked Play seasonal rewards.
At the beginning of each season, you'll first need to play 10 placement matches to get your initial rating. You'll get matched up with other players of similar skill and compete in 4v4 matches in game modes such as Hardpoint, Search and Destroy, and Capture the Flag with eSports settings enabled.
You’ll have until the end of each season to play matches and earn promotions through the tiers. The Placement Season established your MMR-based starting tier for Ranked Play Season 2 and beyond.
Winning matches earn you XP, which lead to promotions to the next tier. Losing or leaving matches early, however, result in a loss of XP.
Ranked Play includes seven tiers: Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, Diamond, Masters, and Pro. Only the top 100 players in the Masters tier will be recognized in the Pro tier at the end of each season.
Starting is Season 2, players will earn a flat rate amount of XP based on the match results:
You don't need to unlock items in Ranked Play. However, some items and features available in Multiplayer are disabled in Ranked Play, including several Scorestreaks and Basic Training skills, select weapons and attachments, and all LMGs.

You can choose to party up with another player to compete together in Ranked Play. However, if you attempt to party up with another player with too high a skill difference, you’ll receive an error message and will be unable to play with each other.
Players who leave a match early not only lose XP, but will receive a temporary ban from Ranked Play.
