Performance means everything to the Company. At the end of every round, you receive your report on how well you did. Afterwards, you can check your Employee Rank. Does the rank mean anything in the grand scheme of the game? No. Is it vital for bragging rights? Yes. All of the ranks in Lethal Company are cosmetic, but they’re a fun way to showcase your skills in the game. We’ll break down all the ranks and how you can improve yourself to climb up the ladder in the eyes of the Company.
Each Rank in Lethal Company
There are five ranks you can achieve in Lethal Company as listed in the table below:
When you first start the game, you will be an Intern since you’ve yet to do anything. However, you can always earn higher the more you play. Again, ranks in Lethal Company don’t exactly do anything. It’s just a cool thing to earn on your Company suit and add some more immersion to the game.
How To Improve Your Rank
The only way you can increase your Lethal Company rank is to keep playing the game. However, you must play it well. Gather as much scrap as possible. Finding scrap isn’t just about earning income for the Company. When you take scrap, you increase your chances of improving your grade. The higher the grade, the more XP you earn when completing the mission.
One good way to climb the ranks in Lethal Company is to not die. You want your grade to end as high as possible, which is difficult to do if a creature kills you. Or if you die because you couldn’t quite make the jump.
When it comes to scrap, try to get the most expensive type. Items like the Painting and Cash Register are worth a good amount. So, if you want to rank up in Lethal Company, grab the pricey stuff before the rest of your crewmates. It’s easy to do if you solo the round, but that also increases the likelihood of you dying. Just remain cautious, go into the mission with the right equipment, and learn the maps well. That way, you can sprint for the exit and the ship if all else fails.
Lethal Company is available on PC via Steam.
