    To obtain some of the rewards that you had to purchase in Gears 4 (Banners, Weapons Skins, Character Variants) you need increase your rank. To do this the game has Daily Challenges. (Click your Left Trigger button while in the menus to see the current ones)

    These are changed daily and include 3 challenges that indicate how many stars you will receive upon completing them. More stars for the more difficult challenges.

    Some challenges I have experienced include: Beat a Past Escape map, beat 3 past Escape maps, Complete 12 Eliminations with a certain character (Kait or Swarm Hunter or Swarm Grenadier), Get 16 Eliminations with Assault Rifles, etc....

    You can also earn stars by earning medals. These are similar to previous Gears of War games. A number of kills with a certain weapon. Playing so many waves of Horde, a certain number of Escape completions and winning a certain number of matches in a playlist.

    Thanks to Futile Youth I now know that you can reroll daily challenges that you have completed using your Iron reserves (an in game currency shown at the top right in your Tour page) and obtain new challenges quicker without having to wait the time shown for a new challenge to appear.

    The Private Ranks all require 5 stars, so this should only take a few challenges and medals to reach Corporal I. Just be aware that each Tour of Duty has a reset date, this might not mean much for Corporal, but you should be aware of the next end date so that you do not work hard to reach a high rank only to have start over a week later.

    Good Luck! And have fun!

    Futile YouthIf I'm not mistaken, you can reroll a challenge to get a new one once you've completed it to get even more stars in a day?

    Erukusaki36I will try that and update my solution if it works out.

    zDrUnKeNMoNkEyzis There not a specific way to choose a game mode I.e. king of the hill or something? Or do I just have to get them in rotation only?

    Erukusaki36If you go into Versus -> Ranked Playlists -> King of the Hill, Team Deathmatch, Escalation, Guardian. These are the options you can choose to play. Does that answer your question zDrUnKeNMoNkEyz?

    zDrUnKeNMoNkEyzI think. So is ranked the only way to specifically play a single game mode? I see that they are grouped together in arcade but was trying to find where i can just play deathmatch, or just play KOH etc. Does that make sense? Its saying to capture 7 rings so was trying to just play KOH for example.

    Erukusaki36Yes if you just want to play KOTH, for ring captures, Ranked is the way to go. You could also do Escalation matches as they have 3 rings on the map, but the medal you might be going for should indicate if it needs a specific playlist or not.

    Drazer76Worth noting that there is a time limit on getting this before it resets, with each Tour of Duty, and although you only need 15 stars for this achievement, the later ones are more (33, 204, 243, with general being near 500 stars)..

    Erukusaki36Yes I will add that. Thank you.
