Score

Score, only calculated on the death of a shell, is used to determine how well you did with that shell and how much experience is to be granted to you for leveling purposes.

There are two components to score: main score and bonus score. Main score, shown simply as Score, is calculated based on various statistics, such as the number of completions of each kind of mission in StarBreak:

Sometimes a stat may be highlighted in yellow with the word 'new' next to it, this means you've hit a new record with that stat for this type of shell, additional experience is awarded for achieving 'new' on some categories. The amount of experience awarded appears to be around an additional 10% of what that line would have given you.

Bonus score, granted by meeting certain conditions, is then calculated and added to main score to produce Final Score. A list of possible bonuses is included (you start with a clean slate each time you manifest as a new shell) Bonuses are applied to your score from the list below from the top to the bottom:

Bonus Name Requirement Bonus Score
Mark Achieve MK 2-6 +25/+50/+100/+200/+400
Gear Have at least 1 base score and a non-starter item equippedSee Gear Table.
Full Sets Complete all non-elite maps once (Excluding SC) 512 x number of full sets
Elite Sets Complete all elite maps once (Excluding SC) 1024 x number of elite sets
No Heals Never collect a Medkit +25%
No Reloads Never collected Ammo +5%
Ascetic Never opened a Chest +25%
Stock Never collected a Boost +25%
Irregular Never used main attack +10%
One-Handed Never used secondary attack +5%
Restrained Never used special attack +10%
Never Say DieNever 'Home' +25%
Naked Never have a Body item equipped +15%
Barefoot Never have a Mobility item equipped +15%

Each bonus stacks as calculations are performed after each line. For example if you recieve the “No Heals” and “Never Say Die” bonus and had 100 score, you would recieve +25% from “No Heals” giving you 125, and then another +25% from “Never Say Die” on top the new value of 125, giving you 156 points. Getting all the bonuses that add a percentage to your score will multiply your score by ~4.3.

The gear bonus appears to award points using the following formula for normal equipment: (Tier x 2) x (Modifiers + 1)

Experimental and Prototype equipment does not appear to award its full points value unless a boss has been defeated. No gear award will be given unless at least a midboss is defeated. Your gear bonus cannot exceed your base score.

7 (Exotic T5)128 256 512 1024 (512) 2048 (512)

Exotic equipment appears to award points two tiers above its tier, IE a Modified Arblast (T1 Exotic, 1 mod) will award 16 points rather than 4.

Implants appear to have a static value as shown in the table below:

Lesser 96

If one does sufficiently well with a shell before dying, one may receive a rank as a reward for achieving a high score. The ranks, from lowest score required to highest score required, are C, B, A, and S; they require final scores on death of 500, 1000, 4000, and 9000, respectively. A set of Steam achievements requires A-rank and S-rank with each shell; beyond this, ranks are only for bragging rights.

If one's shell dies while one is disconnected from the game servers, score will be calculated and experience granted, but the player will log in as a spark, unable to access the death screen. As well, achievements requiring certain ranks will not be advanced.
