In the Marketplace you can use your hard-earned currencies and materials to purchase new weapons and armors. There is also a section to use Platinum, a currency you purchase with real money, to buy special bundles. Let’s walk through the different sections step by step.
How to get to the Marketplace and what does it contain?
You can always find the Marketplace from the top tab of the Main Menu. The red notification icon is showing you if there are any new shop offers, or free rewards that you can go claim.
This should take you to the Marketplace itself:
The Marketplace itself has multiple different tabs: Featured, Weekly, Weapons, Armors and Currency. While most of them are fairly self-explanatory, let’s quickly walk through all of them.
Featured – This tab will contain the bundles that you can purchase with Platinum, a currency you buy with real money. These bundles will usually contain a combination of different weapons (pre-equipped with useful parts) and armors which have a unique visual skin that can only be received through the bundles.
You can also find a free daily offer of components, and a place of purchasing components with credits from the bottom of the page.
Weekly – This tab contains a weekly changing list of weapons with weapon parts attached, that can be purchased with Platinum
Weapons – This tab contains all of the weapons available in the game, and all of them can be earned with the credits that you earn by playing shifts and completing tasks. These weapons do not contain special parts, but keep in mind that you can earn all of the parts available in the game from the tasks.
Armors – This tab contains all of the armors available in the game, all being available for credits.
Currency – This tab is the place where you can purchase Platinum with real money through Steam. You can also swap Platinum to credits on this tab, if you need that final boost to purchase the weapon that you are looking for.
Am I locked out from getting something if I don’t use Platinum?
The only things that you are not able to claim by playing the game and using the in-game credits are the various visual skins for weapons or armor. You are able to gain all weapons, armors, parts and upgrade codes simply by playing the game and completing your tasks, no purchases required.
