Complete List of Discord Badges and How to Get Them

by Ravi Teja KNTS

Discord has badges that are awarded to specific members of a group to help distinguish them. Earning them is a matter of pride and honor, and makes the profile look much better. Some badges are easy to get. For example, answer five questions and receive a badge. Others are much harder which makes them more valuable and rare to have under the profile. Here’s a detailed guide on every Discord badge and how you can get them.

Let me start with the easiest Discord badge that anyone can get.

1. HypeSquad House Badge

HypeSquad House badge helps Discord keeps you in either of the three houses — Bravery, Brilliance, or Balance.

HypeSquad Houses on Discord

All you need to do is answer 5 personality questions and Discord will place you in one of the houses and give you a badge for that house. Also, there are chances that you may not get any badge but you can try again. A house is like a community and you can participate in events conducted in each house.

HypeSquad House Badge Perks

You can be part of the Discord HypeSquad Community and participate in inter-house challenges. You also receive community newsletters. Best of all, you will get a house badge under your name.

How to Get HypeSquad House Badge

1. To get the HypeSquad House badge, open Discord and click on the user-settings icon beside your user-name in the bottom left corner.

Opening Discord Settings

2. In the Settings, scroll down and select the HypeSquad option.

You can begin the test again to change the house. Just answer the questions differently and you are good to go.

2. HypeSquad Events Badge

Discord organizes events and competitions around the world. You can attend as many events with your house merch as you want. This helps Discord understand if you are really interested in the Discord community and worthy enough to be a HypeSquad Events manager. This is a rare badge that you don’t find normally under most profiles. If you want to take the responsibility of organizing events for your house, try for the HypeSquad Events Badge.

HypeSquad Events Badge Perks

Can organize Discord events and also has the ability to join Discord’s secret server. You get goodies from Discord to oversee small local events. If all goes well, you can get the HypeSquad Events badge.

How to Get HypeSquad Events Badge

The first step would be getting the HypeSquad House Badge and begin participating in the community and attending local events. The more you participate, the higher the chances of getting the badge. But there is no guaranty that you will be awarded the badge even after all the work. There is no foolproof way to get the badge other than being part of the Discord and HypeSquad house community and doing what is expected of you.

3. Discord Server Booster Badge

Boosting servers will help to improve the features of the server. You will get better quality video streaming, custom emojis, high-quality voice chat in channels, server banner, etc. All these features will further improve level by level. The more you boost the server, the more features you get. 

Giving two boosts to the server will make it reach level 1 from 0. It needs 15 boosts for level 2 and 30 boosts for level 3. To get the Server Booster Badge, you need to boost the server at least once which costs $4.99/month. Yup, it’s not free which makes it even rarer.

Also, there are various types of Server Booster Badges. Your badge will improve as you provide more boosts to the server.

5. Early Supporter badge

Among all the badges, the Discord Early Supporter badge is one badge that you can’t get anymore. It is a badge for users who supported Discord in its early days. The one who got the Discord Nitro before 10th October 2018, 7:20 PM PDT will have it on their profile. Unlike the Nitro Badge, this one is permanent even when you stop the Nitro subscription.

Note that there no additional perks except for proudly having a badge.

6. Bug Hunter Badge

Discord has a special badge dedicated to bug hunters. If you report any bugs to Discord, you will be eligible for Big Hunter Badge. Discord automatically places the badge under your profile without you needing to apply for it. There is no guarantee that you will get a badge after reporting a bug though. Discord itself will add the green Bug Hunter Badge when it sees fit.

Also, if you find multiple bugs on the platform, then your green bug hunter badge will turn into a golden one.

Bug Hunter Badge Perks

You get few beta features if you are a bug hunter with a gold badge. Green badges do not have any additional perks except for having the badge under your profile.

How to get Bug Hunter Badge

Open this Discord Testers Page and click on Accept Invite. Make sure you are signed in to the Discord account where you want to receive the badge.

This will direct you to Discord Testers Server where you can find rules and how to get started with finding bugs.

7. Discord Bot Developer Badge

Discord recently stopped awarding the bot developer badge at the end of 2020. All users who already have the badge will continue to see them on their profile. If you are wondering what are bots, they are nothing but a plugin that makes Discord even more functional.

Even before discontinuing, Discord didn’t offer the badge to every bot developer. You needed to have a bot that is installed on more than 75+ servers and each server should have had more than 40 people.

Now, your entire team will get the Bot Developer badge instead. You need to add the users before getting the badge though. Once you have received the badge, new team members will not get it. 

Discord Bot Developer Badge Perks

Your bot will get a verified icon which may lead to more installations as the trust factor is higher and you will get the Bot Developer Badge. The obvious perk is the ability to create a verified server for your bot.

8. Discord Partner Badge

To get the Discord Partner Badge, you need to be an admin of a server that is eligible as a partner server of Discord. You can check whether your server is eligible or not in the server settings, which I will show you below. Your server must have 50 active users every week and more than 100 members. If your server meets the criteria, it is eligible for the partner program and you will receive the partner badge as an admin for that server.

Discord Partner Badge Perks

To start, you get free server boosting to level 3 and free Nitro. Sometimes, you also get some features exclusive to the partner badge for a certain period until that’s available for everyone. Your Server will also be available on the Discover page. You will get one of the rarest badges to earn on Discord.

How to Get Discord Partner Badge

1. Open the Server for which you want to apply for the Partner program and click on the server name at the top left corner. Here select Server Settings option.

9. Discord Staff Badge

This one might be obvious. You get this badge when you work for Discord. There are no perks or any other advantages for getting the staff badge. As expected, you will lose the badge once you are out of the job.

10. Certified Discord Moderator Badge

This is the newest badge in the list released in the May of 2021. As the name implies, it is a badge for moderators, the ones who ban members and remove content that’s against Discord and community policies and help communities grow. But before that, you either need to be an admin or a moderator of the server that has a sizable impact. Then you need to maintain the server by helping it run by the rules like removing messages with unaccepted words, copyrighted content, or any content that shouldn’t be published on that server.

This is also one of the badges where Discord automatically finds you and rewards you with a badge.
