For official Roblox badges, see the Badges category page.

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

Player badges can be obtained by a player fulfilling a certain requirement in a Roblox game. 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, with many users creating "Badge Walks" where all the player has to do is walk down a line of badge givers usually and badges will be awarded. There are even entire groups dedicated to hunting for these badges.

Player badges are badges created by other users and are awarded to players in games. The game's creator usually makes them obtainable by progressing or finding secrets. Unlike Roblox badges, players can remove them from their inventory (official Roblox badges are shown in a separate section on one's profile rather than their inventory).

Rarity

The player badges' difficulties are influenced by how many players got it yesterday; for example, if 100,000 of 100,050 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)

Player badges can be manually awarded through most trusted "admin command" models, such as Kohl's Admin Infinite (in that case, the command would be :badge (player) (badge ID)).

Limitations

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

Roblox Badges

Most Roblox badges can be obtained by progressing (e.g. formerly earning Builders Club, having a Roblox account for at least 1 or more years, etc.) or by playing games.

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 Robux, making it appear "5 Robux"
  • The most won badge on the entire website is Survived a Disaster on the game Natural Disaster Survival, with over 171,000,000 players achieving it as of December 2020.
  • A user named tazgurl400 currently holds the most player badges on Roblox, with over 100,000 obtained player badges.
  • Along with the 100 Robux needed to create a player badge, Builders Club was one of the requirements too, but that has been removed in recent years.

The unused "Navigation" badge

  • 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.
  • For event games, player badges are known to have the ability to be awarded along with a real avatar shop item if a specific script is used.

The unused trophy texture for badges

  • At one point, when badges were still in development, there were going to be a full-on customized mesh rather than a circle-cropped image of whatever a player uploaded as the icon on it. This texture seems to have been designed in such a way that it could be easily retextured by the player. It seems that it was a gear that any player could equip and show others or be a hat that a player can choose to wear, but it is currently unknown.
