Gauntlets

Gauntlets, formally titled The Lost Gauntlets, are a feature of Geometry Dash, introduced during Update 2.1 with content gradually being included post-release. They are accessed from the directive menu.

Description

A gauntlet is comprised of a selection of five user levels of similar yet increasing difficulty, which are required to be completed sequentially. There are the standard level rewards, as well as diamonds for making progress on levels. Completing a gauntlet rewards more diamonds, and may further reward mana orbs, shards, icons and other special items. There are a total of twelve gauntlets, some of which are initially locked or hidden.

An upcoming update will include three new gauntlets: Time Gauntlet, Monster Gauntlet, Death Gauntlet.

Trivia

  • There are a total of 234 stars and 304 diamonds in the gauntlets as of Update 2.1.
  • There are a total of 372 stars and 482 diamonds in the Lost Gauntlets as of Update 2.11.
  • The first six gauntlets are based on the Shards of Power, all of which are the Fire, Ice, Poison, Shadow, Lava and the Bonus shards.
    • However, because you can only have up to 100 of each shard at a time (as of 2.1), if you have an amount of shards that will have you reach over 100 when redeeming prizes from these gauntlets, each shard will be replaced with 100 Mana Orbs each.
  • Gauntlets are similar to map packs in being collections of user levels that offer rewards, although the number of levels, rewards and order of play differ.
  • Gauntlets share the same five sequential level access that is featured in Geometry Dash World, although gauntlets themselves do not need to be played in order, unlike worlds.
  • Gauntlet level orders and the levels themselves have been changed post-release.
    • For the Fire Gauntlet, after one day, Magmatic Sanctuary, which was initially ordered first, was shifted to fifth due to its underestimated difficulty, and Shock, which was initially ordered fifth, was shifted to fourth due to its overestimated difficulty.
    • For the Ice Gauntlet, after one day, Skyward, which was initially ordered fifth, was shifted to second due to its overestimated difficulty.
    • For the Chaos Gauntlet, after a few hours, Blade, which was initially ordered fourth, was removed upon request by its creator. Kappaclysm then advanced to the fourth position and Drippy Dub acquired third position.
    • For the Spike Gauntlet, Dangerous Spikes, which was initially ordered first, was removed due to its overestimated difficulty, and was replaced by the level Victim.
    • Fire Aura, Kappaclysm and Scarlet Surge are the only levels initially released prior to Update 2.0 to be included in gauntlets.
  • Kappaclysm is also the only level in the Gauntlets to also be in a Map Pack. Progress is tracked separately for each group.
  • Scarlet Surge is the only officially included user level that has a length of XL.
  • Infernal Arena and Ichor is one of only two sets of Gauntlet levels that share a song, the other being Pureland and Shrill Hallway.
  • Spike Gauntlet is the only Gauntlet which name isn't capitalized correctly, being named "spike Gauntlet".
  • The Monster Gauntlet's contest video came out 17th January 2018 with a due date of 29th March 2018.
