How do you earn points in Rift Crucible?


What are you supposed to do to get points. Obviously, scoring earns points but that is difficult. Kills do not seem to get you any points at all which is frustrating. The spark defender seasonal challenge requires you to get 50 points. Since I am not a regular crucible player, returning the spark to the enemy rift is not gonna happen for me.

There are a couple of things, killing enemies is not one of them, unfortunately. Well, you can kill a player who has the spark and this will earn some points. You also get points from revives which seems odd but here are all of the things that will earn you points for the Rift and give you the points you need for the season 19 challenge to get 50 points. 

  • Taking a spark and igniting the rift. This earns the most points
  • Killing an enemy who is carrying the spark.
  • Reviving a fallen enemy from your team


  1. Thank You! This mode is so stupid (at least the qualifiers) and on a randomized playlist, i lost two weeks waiting for a rift mode to open. Didnt know it was in the main rotating playlist either. Could this game be “just” a bit more straight forward and specific.

  2. So stupid. Don’t even get points for winning the game.
