Ranks are a new form of achievement introduced as of 2.7.3p2. They are based off of experience for each individual wolf the player has created. There are currently a total of eight ranks to earn.

In single player, players can see their wolf's rank at any time in the Pack Stats interface - this applies in any map and even during multiplayer.

In multiplayer, ranks are displayed to all players upon entering a session. 

Unlocking Ranks

Ranks are purely cosmetic. Other than boasting or bragging rights, they offer no benefits. Ranks are automatically applied the moment a player's wolf has reached the minimum experience requirement. It is not possible for players to manually define their wolf's rank.

  • The artwork depicting each rank was made by Sambhur.[1] These images were also added to the community forums' avatar gallery.
  • These ranks were loosely modelled after and trimmed-down versions of the ranks utilised on the community forum.[2]
  • A common misconception about wild wolves is that they have ranks or hierarchies. (Alpha, beta, omega, etc.) This is false.[3] Most packs consist of related (family) members, with the breeding male and female being the dominant/breeding pair responsible for establishing the pack. The offspring produced and raised by these two wolves form the pack's members.
    • It is true that unrelated individuals may sometimes be adopted into a non-natal pack.


  1. • New Rank icons!
  2. While not publicly confirmed by Dave in the release announcement, this is true as forum ranks were indeed the inspiration.
