Warhawk features a ranking system based on your in-game points and awards earned. These points and awards are recieved for playing on ranked servers only.
To achieve a rank you need to have both the required points and required award. Only having one will not get you the rank.
Note: The game currently has a bug where your rank may not be what it should be. (It typically seems to be too high). This is being worked on. Until this is fixed your rank may not correlate to the list below. Once they fix this bug, the below table should be accurate.
There is also an issue of it looking like your rank has been set back to Recruit. Your rank hasn't actually been reset, it is just that the stats server didn't give back any data, so your PS3 thinks you are a Recruit. However, you did not lose your ranking, you just need to try and view your profile again and again until you get valid data back.
