# Gamemode benefits

OldSchool RSPS offers a unique way to play with a flexible experience rate that suits you.

## Drop Rate Benefits

Experience rates offer a boosted drop rate for those who chose the hardest rates. For pre-defined XP rates, the drop rate boosts are as follows:

Name | XP Rate | Bonus |
---|---|---|

Normal | 50x | +0% |

Extreme | 15x | +12.9% |

Nerd | 5x | +20.97% |

No Lifer | 1x | +30% |

If your XP rate is 5x or less you will receive +1 point every 25% of health done at The Gauntlet.

For those players who have chosen a custom XP rate, the following are the drop rate boosts for those XP rates.

Rate | Bonus |
---|---|

1x | +30% |

2x | +23.39% |

3x | +22.58% |

4x | +21.77% |
