Discord level bots are gaining popularity quickly. They offer a great way to incentivize and reward chat activity. Choosing the right rank system for your server is crucial, as a bad implementation can do more harm than good.
I took a look at some of the most popular options out there for this guide. So without further ado let’s level up your Server!

What all good level Bots offer
Some features are the same across all the level bots listed down below:
- Users gain XP by sending messages in chat
- You can limit XP rates to prevent spam
- The bots offer the leveling as only a small part of their features (AmariBot is an exception)
- There’s a way for users to check their rank and a server/global leaderboard
- Roles can be given as rewards
Those are the main notable shared features. I do recommend to test multiple of the options down below, as only you know which features you need.
Note that I only tested the free version of each bot down below.
AmariBot is a dedicated level bot. This means that it currently offers no other major features and the devs focus on the level system alone. While at this stage it doesn’t have too many extraordinary features, the bot has all the basics. The existing commands and rank cards/leaderboards look good and the functionality is solid. I’m looking forward to the features which might be added in the future!
The “Play” version of Gaius focuses on level systems and fun commands. The existing level system has all the basic features needed with customization options to ramp up level times, send custom messages and so on. The bot can give xp for time spent in voice chats, which is a feature most other Discord bots don’t offer. The Patron-only version of the bot also features tree-leveling, which means users can choose different level paths when they level up. Its a feature we didn’t find anywhere else, so if you need that Gaius Play might be worth a look!
Tatsumaki is a very much feature-filled bot. The leveling is only a small part of the range of commands, but it works great. Tatsumaki was one of the first bots to properly implement a level system and features customizability and global ranks and levels across all Discord Servers with the bot. There are also fancy and customizable stat and rank cards for each user.
Mee6 has a great leveling system with a clean web dashboard. The devs sadly recently decided to make the leveling feature premium only, which means you’ll have to pay to access it. We still want to include the bot on this list as we used to use the leveling system on most of our servers before the change and if you’re using the bot for other features as well it is definitely worth looking into.

A whole section of this website is dedicated to Discord, as I know a lot about the platform and want to write in-depth guides about it. The role categories on the right are just one of many examples.
