New Reward System

  • BP rewards are no longer awarded for playing in the Arcade. In their place, we're introducing the new Arcade Point (AP) system.
  • You will receive AP as rewards for playing in the Arcade.
  • Obtained AP can be viewed both on the in-game Match Results and End of Match page.
  • You can claim rewards each time you achieve an AP milestone.
  • AP count will reset every Wednesday at 2 AM (UTC).


  • The BP rewards you obtain after a match have been boosted substantially.
  • This enhancement will be more pronounced for players at lower skill levels (in terms of ranking, kills, damage, etc.).
  • The display of BP/XP match reward details has been removed from the in-game Match Result screen. These details are available on the End of Match page.
  • The contents of the Supply Loot Cache obtainable through events and Survival Level progression has been enhanced.
  • Credits (5/10/15/20) will be provided as the guaranteed reward instead of the former BP reward (100/200/300/500)
  • The bonus contents you can acquire with an additional chance have been updated to the following:
  • Costume and Gear Imprint (Individual) / 1 Key Fragment / 2 Key Fragment / 3 Key Fragment / 4 Key Fragment
  • The probability of acquiring Costume amprint have been substantially increased
  • Information on the full composition of the Supply Loot Cache can be found at the Workshop - Regular Crafting page.
  • If you choose to open Supply Loot Caches earned before the 24.2 Update, after the 24.2 Update goes live, the contents will reflect the updated reward composition.
