The Ranking System in Halo: Reach is based on Credits (cR) earned through Forge, Multiplayer, Campaign, and Firefight matches. Credits are earned after every game, and you earn extra credits for medals earned during the match, (e.g. Double Kills) victory bonuses, commendations, and Daily/Weekly challenges.

Note that Credits spent on armory purchases do not decrease your rank. However, Credits (cR) earned from any other feature (Forge and Custom Games) are likely to be a lot less than those that would be awarded for playing multiplayer via Xbox Live. All ranking is currently capped at Lt. Colonel Rank 3 at this time.

Let’s begin with Halo: Reach’s rank and armor, when player rank higher, they will be able to purchase different armor, such as armor and chest plates, but to purchase this armor, player have to earn credits. Players can earn credits by winning matches, getting multiple kills and earning medals. Players also get the list of ranks in order and their accompanying images from game wiki page. By pressing start from any menu, you can access the armory. When you play, you will grow through a tiered grading system and you will be satisfied with credits that you can spend on visually upgraded gear. Using Halo Reach Menu, you can change the symbol decorating your Spartan’s armor and create a custom paint job. When you hit the milestones, you will get more custom armor options, so make sure you check back often to see what that spending cash you have earned can buy.
