Badge badgeb

A badge in Arsenal that players can obtain by winning a game.

A badge is obtained by fulfilling a certain requirement.

Badges serve a similar purpose to achievements in games outside of Roblox. As a result, it is not uncommon for players to intentionally seek out as many badges as possible. There are even entire groups dedicated to badge-hunting.

Player Badges

BadgeTemplate

A template used for creating image of a badge. The shaded part will be trimmed and have antialiasing in the final image.

Player badges are badges created by users and are awarded to players in games. Creator usually makes them obtainable by progressing or finding secrets. Unlike Roblox badges, players can remove them from their inventory.

Rarity

The player badges' difficulties are influenced by how many players got it yesterday; for example, if 100,000 players get a badge, its difficulty will likely be Freebie, while if only 2 players get a badge, its difficulty will likely be impossible. Sometimes, this does not even remotely reflect the difficulty of getting the badge—in some extreme cases, literal freebie badges awarded upon entering the game are listed as impossible.

Name of difficulty Percentage
Freebie from 100% to 90%
Cake Walk from 89.9% to 80%
Easy from 79.9% to 50%
Moderate from 49.9% to 30%
Challenging from 29.9% to 20%
Hard from 19.9% to 10%
Extreme from 9.9% to 5%
Insane from 4.9% to 1%
Impossible from 0.9% to 0%

Criticism

Player badges are criticized due to its cost (100 Robux) for creating one, and that badges for group games require payment of group funds instead of having the option to use the funds of their creator.[1]

Creating a badge

Users can create their own badge by uploading their image, typing in the name and description and purchasing their badge with Robux. Images for badges are circular, so the outside of the circle will be trimmed in the final image. Where the badges are created can be found by opening up Roblox Studio, loading a place, opening the Game Explorer, right-clicking on Badges, and then selecting Create Badge. Alternatively, this can be found on the website by clicking on Create and then Badges. Name and description are required to create the badge.

Scripts

This code will award a player of specified id a badge of specified id. The player must be present in-game for it to work.

game:GetService("BadgeService"):AwardBadge(userid,badgeid)

Additionally, this code uses the UserHasBadge function that checks the user if they have a badge of specified id:

game:GetService("BadgeService"):UserHasBadge(userid,assetid)

Limitations:

  • The awarded badge must be of the current game.
  • Badges can only be awarded once.

Trivia

This section is a trivia section. Please relocate any relevant information into other sections of the article.

  • There was once a Roblox badge that was unreleased. It appeared to be a circle with a blue background, similar to Friendship Badge, Ambassador Badge, and Inviter Badge. With "5" on it above and 4 coins stacked down with 1 standing with "R" on it.
    • The R might be a reference to be R$(or Robux), making it appear "5 Robux"
  • A user named hopperkk currently holds the most player badges on Roblox, with over 60K obtained player badges.
  • Along with the 100 Robux needed to create a player badge, BC was one of the requirements too, but that has been removed in recent years.

  • An early cut Roblox badge is the "Navigation" badge. It predates the iconic Roblox badges by two days.[2] It is unknown as to what the requirements were to obtain it.
