Ranks

All inmates start out with 0 rank points, at the rank of Airman. An airman is your default rank, and pretty much the REKT greenhorn. Extra ranks can grant you boosts in your dealings with NPCs.

For each mission you complete, you will be awarded anywhere from -1 rank points (for doing a horrible job) to +2 rank points (for doing an excellent job). It is occasionally possible to skip an entire rank when promoted. On average, inmates will be ranked at Lieutenant upon completing ten missions.

Fun facts:

  • Only 33% of all inmates survive to mission 10.
  • Every floor in the Tartarus recruits an average of 432 new inmates every new round of missions
  • That's roughly 5 new inmates per completed mission
  • While the Tartarus has over a twelve hundred floors, less than 400 of those go to REKT
  • Less than 1% of all recruited inmates make it past Corporal
  • Less than 0.01% of all recruited inmates make it past General
  • Only 1 in 7 500 000 criminals has what it takes to make it to General of the Armies
