In New World, you will join one of three Factions and will be able to increase your reputation to reach new ranks for new rewards. This page details how to increase your cap for the first time for the Marauders Faction.
What is Faction Reputation?
Regardless of the Faction you choose to play as, you’ll be able to earn Reputation for the chosen Faction by completing the PvE and PvP Quests found at your given representative at any settlement found in New World. These Quests can be refreshed by clicking and abandoning them, allowing you to forego one in an area that perhaps you’re not fond of or going for one in a location close to your other Quests. Completing these Quests will reward you Faction Tokens, Reputation and, in the case of PvP Quests, Influence in that settlement.
What is the 3000 Faction Reputation Cap?
You’ll only be able to raise your Reputation to a certain cap at each rank, with the first being a cap of 3000. You’ll quickly find yourself hitting this cap early on and you’ll have to complete and unlock Quest before you can reach the next rank. This doesn’t stop you from taking and completing these Quests for the Faction Tokens and Influence they still reward, on top of the Exp.

How to rank up your Marauders Rank
There’s been some confusion about when you can unlock the next rank for the Marauders Faction. You’ll most likely hit the 3000 Cap around Levels 18-20 and upon immediately reaching the cap, you’ll have a new Quest in your Journal titled “Trial of the Gladiator”. The Quest will task you with heading to Cutlass Keys however what the game fails to tell you is that you cannot accept the next part of this Quest until you reach Level 24. Once you’re Level 24, make your way to Cutlass Keys Hamlet and speak to Winifred Silas to begin the Trial of the Gladiator Quest.
How to complete Trial of the Gladiator
With the Quest accepted, you’ll need to make your way to Nautilus of Nunez which can be found in the southwest of Monarch’s Bluff. You’ll enter the area from the north and you’ll need to fight your way through the pirates until you reach the large, beached ship at the back. Take the time to deal with the lesser Pirates first and then you’ll find Captain Hamidou at the back, a large hulking Pirate. His attacks will knock you down, so try to block them to avoid suffering major damage and only attack when it’s safe to do so.
Once Captain Hamidou is defeated, return to Winifred Silas in Cutlass Keys Hamlet to complete the Quest and rank up to Gladiator. With this new rank, your Reputation cap will now be 11,000 and you’ll be able to purchase wares under the Gladiator tab using your Faction Tokens.
