Army Values

Living the Army Values

Many people know what the words Loyalty, Duty, Respect, Selfless Service, Honor, Integrity, and Personal Courage mean, but how often do you see someone actually live up to them? Soldiers learn these values in detail during Basic Combat Training (BCT), from then on they live them every day in everything they do — whether they’re on the job or off. In short, the Seven Core Army Values listed below are what being a Soldier is all about.


Bear true faith and allegiance to the U.S. Constitution, the Army, your unit and other Soldiers. Bearing true faith and allegiance is a matter of believing in and devoting yourself to something or someone. A loyal Soldier is one who supports the leadership and stands up for fellow Soldiers. By wearing the uniform of the U.S. Army you are expressing your loyalty. And by doing your share, you show your loyalty to your unit.


Fulfill your obligations. Doing your duty means more than carrying out your assigned tasks. Duty means being able to accomplish tasks as part of a team. The work of the U.S. Army is a complex combination of missions, tasks and responsibilities all in constant motion. Our work entails building one assignment onto another. You fulfill your obligations as a part of your unit every time you resist the temptation to take "shortcuts" that might undermine the integrity of the final product.


Treat people as they should be treated. In the Soldier's Code, we pledge to treat others with dignity and respect while expecting others to do the same. Respect is what allows us to appreciate the best in other people. Respect is trusting that all people have done their jobs and fulfilled their duty. Finally, self-respect is a vital ingredient with the Army value of respect, which results from knowing you have put forth your best effort. The Army is one team and each of us has something to contribute.

Selfless Service

Put the welfare of the Nation, the Army and your subordinates before your own. Selfless service is larger than just one person. In serving your country, you are doing your duty loyally without thought of recognition or gain. The basic building block of selfless service is the commitment of each team member to go a little further, endure a little longer, and look a little closer to see how he or she can add to the effort.


Live up to Army values. The Nation's highest military award is The Medal of Honor. This award goes to Soldiers who make honor a matter of daily living, who develop the habit of being honorable, and solidify that habit with every value choice they make. Honor is a matter of carrying out, acting, and living the values of loyalty, duty, respect, selfless service, integrity and personal courage in everything you do.


Moral & Ethical Behavior Based
Do what's right, legally and morally. Integrity is a quality you develop by adhering to moral principles. It requires that you do and say nothing that deceives others. As your integrity grows, so does the trust others place in you. The more choices you make based on integrity, the more this highly prized value will affect your relationships with family and friends, and, finally, the fundamental acceptance of yourself.

Personal Courage

Face fear, danger or adversity (physical or moral). Personal courage has long been associated with our Army. With physical courage, it is a matter of enduring physical duress and at times risking personal safety. Facing moral fear or adversity may be a long, slow process of continuing forward on the right path, especially if taking those actions is not popular with others. You can build your personal courage by daily standing up for and acting upon the things that you know are honorable.

Army Values Scoring


Each Army Value correlates to actions a Soldier performs in game. Neutralizing enemies will earn you score in Personal Courage for example. When you achieve a scoring opportunity, you will receive a notification on the HUD. If you achieve enough points in an Army Value, its level will increase. When you have advanced your Army Value scores, your total Honor level increases.

  • Loyalty is teamwork based scoring. Assisting teammates completing objectives, neutralizing enemies, and other actions earns you points in Loyalty. To earn Loyalty points you must be linked to a teammate when they achieve a scoring opportunity.
  • Duty is mission and objective based scoring and is earned when a player wins missions and completes objectives.
  • Respect is scoring based on following orders and showing respect for others. Respect points are earned by actions such as completing leader-assigned objectives and securing enemy Soldiers.
  • Selfless Service is scoring based on helping others and doing the right thing. Players gain Selfless Service points through such actions as performing medical care on fellow Soldiers, responding to injured and incapacitated Soldiers quickly and performing triage on fellow soldiers in the correct order.
  • Honor is the average of all other Army values. When you achieve enough points in your Army Values scores, your Honor level increases. An increase in your Honor level earns a Soldier advancement points and increases the Soldier's rank.
  • Integrity Integrity is the only Army Value which can cause points to be lost as well as gained. Integrity points are lost by harming fellow Soldiers, damaging military equipment, or harming incapacitated enemy Soldiers.
  • Personal Courage is scoring based on courageous behavior by a Soldier. Players earn Personal Courage points from activities such as neutralizing enemies and completing objectives while badly wounded.

Advancement Points

Advancement Points are awarded for achieving the next level in Honor. By completing each training event, a player can earn a specific number of Advancement Points. Advancement Points may be spent to unlock MOS training events. When a Soldier graduates Basic Combat Training (BCT) they will have enough Advancement Points to unlock one MOS training. When a training event is completed, new equipment is unlocked and made available for use in multiplayer games.

Soldier Ranks

As players advance their Honor level, their rank will increase. Specific Honor levels earn a the player a rank promotion.
