Activision also offered an incentive for players to perform well in the game. If a player achieved a score that met or exceeded the specified values, they could send photo documentation of their score to Activision and receive an Activision Decathlon Club patch in one of the colors of an Olympic medal:

  • 8,600 points: Bronze
  • 9,000 points: Silver
  • 10,000 points: Gold

These patches provided a fun and tangible reward for players who were able to excel in the game.
