The EXP requirements for each level is N*1000 where N is the next level in the progression, for example; 5000 for level 5 and 6000 for level 6.
Rewards for Freelancer Levels are given at regular intervals as the Freelancer's level increases, with the same progression being mirrored in every character, albeit with their own Freelancer-specific rewards. In contrast to regular loot matrices, which contain 3 items, the loot matrices earned through Freelancer Levels contain only one item, which is a cosmetic item specific to the Freelancer. This can be either a Skin, Emblem, Taunt, Banner Background, or (very rarely) a VFX. The progression is as follows:
|5||Freelancer-specific Loot Matrix||Loot Matrix|
|10||Freelancer-specific Loot Matrix||Loot Matrix|
|15||Freelancer-specific Loot Matrix||Loot Matrix|
|20||Freelancer-specific Loot Matrix, unlocking Mastery Skins, Freelancer-specific Title.||Loot Matrix, Skin, Title|
|Every 5 levels after (25, 30 etc.)||Freelancer-specific Loot Matrix||Loot Matrix|
