As always, anyone level 25 or above who completes their placement matches will get this season’s special player icon and spray. Those who land in the top 500 on their platform and region, will get an extra player icon and an animated spray. Rewards are given at the end of the season.

  • SR 1500-1999 (Silver): 200 CP
  • SR 2000-2499 (Gold): 400 CP
