Mario Kart has always been about being better than your opponents. It just started with friends, but now with online connectivity, you can prove your karting expertise to the world in Mario Kart Tour by going for the top tier. Do your best and rack up those points and in no time you’ll be hitting Tier 5. Easy for me to say. Here are all the details on how you can reach Tier 5 in Mario Kart Tour.
How to Reach Tier 5 in Mario Kart Tour
Just like the past titles, getting a better online ranking is all about first-place finishes. While that’s still important in Mario Kart Tour, you’ll also want to make sure you’re using racers and kart parts that will yield many points.
Before you can even worry about any rankings you’ll first have to unlock the ranking system which can be done after completing the Koopa Cup in. You can find more details about that in this guide.
Once you unlock ranking, then you can finally start climbing the tiers. You’ll see 19 other players and all you need to do to climb the ladder in Mario Kart Tour is finish the week-long season with more points than anyone else.
As mentioned before, you’ll want to make sure that you get first-place finishes, use certain characters, and certain kart parts in order to maximize the number of points you earn for each race.
Since moving up tiers is all about getting more points, you’ll also want to play as often as you can. As long as you’re persistent you can find success even if you’re not the most skilled Mario Kart Tour player.
Your placement in the rankings will determine how many tiers you will move up for the next season. The table below breaks down how this works.

If you play every day and have plenty of successful races, then you should be able to reach Tier 5 within at least two weeks. You’ll have no problems as long as you stay near the top of the table.
Time needed: 14 days.
Here’s a quick summary on how to reach tier 5:
- Unlock Ranking
You can do this by beating the Koopa Cup
- Rank in the top 3 one week
This will give you the fastest path to tier 5
- Rank in the top 10 the next week
Since you start in tier 1, you only need to move up four tiers in total. Beat up on inferior opponents in the first week and week two will be easier.
