Badges are unlocked as certain tasks are achieved. Some are very easy and obvious, like the number of servers hacked. Others take some very specific actions, like 2600HZ.

You can see a list of badges in this article, or you can go the more challenging route and discover them on your own. (One way to discover them in Telehack is to use the finger command on other users.)

Gaining badges is the way to level up, i.e. increase your system level, along with increasing the amount of storage space on your telehack host.
