Credits are primarily earned by participating in battles, with the amount of credits you earn in a battle being based how much you contributed to the team. Contribution to the battle is tallied in multiple ways, including how much damage you inflict on the enemy, the number of enemies you spot, and winning the battle, to name a few.
Other ways to acquire credits can include completing daily challenges, from Supply Crates, and as login bonuses. You can also purchase credits by buying them with gold.
Gold[edit | edit source]
Gold is generally only available for purchase from the gold shop on the website for Euros or real world funds. Other ways gold can be earned are from the various Events Armored Warfare hosts, or through weekly login bonuses offered in the My.Com launcher.
