Badges in Tribes: Ascend are earned for completing various tasks. They can be earned simply by playing the game, however certain badges are easier to earn by a particular class. For example the On-Callbadge is easiest to earn by playing Technician as they tend to do the most repairs. There are four levels of each badge: Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Obsidian, rewarding 250, 500, 1000, and 3000 XP respectively. Although Badge XP does not count towards upgrading equipment, the XP gained is affected by VIP and Boosts.
