Researcher Achievement Badges

Badges indicate levels of accomplishment each researcher has achieved on the Bugcrowd platform. These badges will be displayed on your public and private profile. Each badge type has a set of levels which researchers can progress through, climbing up that badge’s leaderboard over time.

The badges are grouped into the following badge sets:

  • P1 Warrior: Awarded for valid P1 submissions on any program, since January 1, 2019
  • Bounty Bee: Awarded for each program with at least one valid submission.
  • Collaboration Crusader: Awarded for the number of unique collaboration groups with accepted submissions.
  • Submission Shogun: Awarded for the total number of valid submissions across all programs.

The Bounty Bee, Collaboration Crusader, and Submission Shogun badge levels reflects All-Time stats.

In case of collaboration:

  • Consider the example: Researcher A has a submission with researcher B. This counts as one unique group. You will earn another point for bringing in a third researcher on a separate submission with up to 5 collaborators available.
  • Submission Shogun and P1 Warrior will receive a percentage of the submission based on the percentage defined by the primary researcher for each collaboration. For example, if the submission is split 50/50, each researcher receives 0.5 of a submission.
  • Bounty Bee and Collaboration Crusader will receive the bounty or collaboration percentage only if the researcher has a 20% or greater share of the collaboration.
