Are you one of the many people who always just got to have something to obtain or earn in multiplayer games? Already reached max rank in Battlefield 5? If so, DICE has heard you, and is implementing a Battelfield 5 level cap increase soon!
In the studio’s latest Community Broadcast, DICE has announced that a Battlefield 5 level cap increase will roll out in the “latter part” of Tides of War Chapter 4: Defying the Odds! For those who are already at level 50, rejoice! The new max rank will be Career Rank 500!
According to DICE, every 50 ranks you earn will grant you a Promotion. During ranks gained from level 51 through to 100, players will receive Company Coin, and this will repeat after each Promotion.

Once you reach level 100, players will be Promoted for the first time, and a new dog tag will be delivered to the player’s Company, and you’ll also get a new Career Rank icon that can be seen in the in-game scoreboard. Players will receive further Promotions at Rank 150, 200, 250, 300, 350, 400, 450, and finally, 500.
According to DICE the distance from Rank 50 to Rank 51 (and the succeeding Ranks to follow) won’t be in the same trajectory that got the player from Rank 49 to 50.
Currently, in order for you to get from 49 to 50, you need 35,000 XP, but getting from 50 to 51 will only require 12,000 XP. This is 3x higher than when you went from Rank 0 to 1, and you’ll see a similar trend as you continue on through to your first promotion at Rank 100.
DICE says that after each Promotion, the XP curve is reset, but is also made “stronger, with mich bigger jumps in the curve coming for the final Promotions.

Of course, ranking up and such won’t be fun if you don’t get rewarded, right? Here’s what DICE had to say about it.
By the time you reach Rank 500, you’ll have earned close to 2 million in Company Coin, just from ranking up by playing the game. Once you reach level 500, you’ll continue to earn Company Coin through Assignments, Daily Orders, and Tides of War Rewards. To help balance out the addition of Company Coin earned per rank, you will find that End of Round Company Coin awards will be switched off once the new ranks are added to the game in August.
You’ll get 1500 Company Coin per Rank from 50 through till 70, and then 3000 Company Coin per Rank until you reach 100. On your Promotion, you’ll receive more Company Coin, the Dog Tag, scoreboard icon, and then the cycle resets, with increases to the amount of Company Coin you receive.
Again, this Battlefield 5 level cap increase will go live in the latter half of Chapter 4, and not at teh start of it. Once we get a firm release date on this, we’ll let our readers know.
