I've searched around some and I can't get a straight answer so,
what exactly is Rank based on?

I'm guessing pay, but is that effected by speed?

If you mean your mercenary rank, it means how well you did as a mercenary after someone hires you for a job. Im not sure how closely its related to pay but your performance is important. Not getting 5000 damage and finishing the job quickly is a good benchmark I use when playing as a merc. Only missions done through being hired will raise or lower your merc points.

At least I think thats what it means...>_>

Oh, well it still works fairly the same way it does in all the AC games. Its highly dependent on how long you take, how much damage you take, and how much ammo you preserve.

Guess I should have noted that this is my first AC game,
I'm coming here hoping for a depth on par to Dark Souls and Demons' souls and From has shown solid polish in this so far.

I dont know any details at the level of Dark Souls but those three factors tend to influence the grade a lot. Kill quickly and efficiently and your rank should be high. Using TE laser weapons dont drain ammo like KE and CE do so if you want to reduce penalty on ammo use, go with TE. Try your best not to get damage. 5000 AP damage tends to be a threshold for penalties.

Maybe someone more educated in the AC ways can comment on any finer details.
