How to Earn Ranks and Rewards in Chapter 2: Lightning Strikes

Details of the Weekly Challenges, the Chapter Rank, and what you’ll earn by playing.

With Chapter 2: Lightning Strikes, another exciting Chapter of Battlefield™ V is upon us. If you’re not familiar with Chapters, they are several weeks long and come with new battlefields, challenges, modes, weapons, progression options, and more to evolve your Battlefield V experience.

Just as you can climb the ranks of the classes, weapons, and vehicles of your Company, you can rank up within each Chapter. The ways to progress are simple – and the rewards are sweet. Let’s go through it.

Earn Chapter XP, Climb the Ranks, and Collect Rewards
As you enjoy your matches of Battlefield V during one of its Chapters, you earn experience points exclusive to the Chapter – simply by playing the game when it’s active. This XP works towards a unique Chapter Rank, and each time you rank up, you’ll be rewarded.

Five Chapter Events Full of Challenges
All Battlefield V Chapters are divided into Chapter Events, which are gameplay-themed periods of one or multiple weeks, full of challenges where you can earn Chapter Rank, weapon unlocks, and more. Chapter 2: Lightning Strikes will contain five Chapter Events. As you can see, all Chapter Events except Iron Skin will be two weeks long:

  • A Few Good Soldiers (Week 1 2): On January 17, the first Chapter Event of Chapter 2: Lightning Strikes kicks off. Its two Weekly Challenges will focus on the intense 8-vs-8 matches of Squad Conquest – a guest-starring mode available for a limited time during the second Chapter. Complete them to unlock the Zk-383 submachine gun and the Modele 1944 semi-automatic rifle. 
  • Hold the Line (Week 3 4): Themed around the Breakthrough and Frontlines, Hold the Line challenges you to learn and master these game modes in two new Weekly Challenges. There’s rockin’ Final Countdown headgear and a powerful M1922 MMG in it for you if you succeed.
  • Iron Skin (Week 5): Tank warfare is a prominent theme in Chapter 2: Lightning Strikes and the one-week Chapter Event of Iron Skin celebrates the steel beasts of Battlefield V. Stay tuned for more details on challenges and rewards.
  • Armor on the Horizon (Week 6 7): The crown jewel of Battlefield V multiplayer, Grand Operations combines maps and modes in an epic blend of multiplayer goodness. A Grand Operation is added with Chapter 2, and you’ll be taking on two Weekly Challenges tied to this in the Armor on the Horizon Chapter Event. We’ll share details on rewards and more in an upcoming article.
  • Unstoppable Force (Week 8 9): Rush returns during Chapter 2: Lightning Strikes, and this classic mode in a new veil – highly anticipated by Battlefield veterans – is the focus of the Chapter Event dubbed Unstoppable Force. We’re laying the final touches on this Chapter Event, its Weekly Challenges, and their superb rewards – we can’t wait to tell you more about them!
