If you want the spiffiestest Javelin in the whole Bastion, you need to know how to earn coins quickly. It's true. The more you play Anthem the more you will realize that having a good piece of change is helpful. While starting with 40,000 coins, you can change your look and a new Javelin suit costs up to 61,000 coins (or more). Looks like a badass freelancer doesn't come cheap.
Most items you buy with Coins are cosmetics, but you can also spend coins on craft materials such as Epic and Masterwork Ember and unique tools for every class in Regulator Store in Fort Tarsis. Some cosmetics can be purchased with Shards (which requires real money), but everything can be acquired with coins if you are not afraid of a piece of a grind.
How to earn coins quickly in Anthem
If you know which activities in Anthem get you the most coins for your time, then you earn a lot can be much easier. These are the different things you can do to quickly throw up coins in Anthem.
first Use the Alliance System
By default, Anthem puts you in every mission with three other freelancers. It is a co-op game at heart, and while you can enjoy it, you will miss some coins if you do. Anthem has an alliance system that issues money at the end of each week.
At the end of the week Anthem calculates how much you and five friends have played, factors in your alliance level, and then thanks to a multiplier bonus based on how much time is spent in the game (5X is the max multiplier ).
You can still earn the Alliance coins without playing with a consistent group of friends. Anthem automatically calculates the bonus based on five recent players you played in matchmaking. Your bonus is likely to be lower if you go this route, but you will still earn a few thousand coins a week just from playing the game.
You can check your Alliance status by going to the icon in Fort Tarsis labeled Alliance system. It's the table with the scale on it, next to the hourglass table.
2nd Complete daily and weekly tests
Check out your map the next time you are in Fort Tarsis and look for Lucky Jaks icon. Jak is the bearer of daily and weekly challenges. He also holds the requirements for monthly challenges, but from now on these challenges challenge only rare materials (still make it obvious).
The samples are also displayed in the Path of Glory section of the Challenges menu. Each attempt rewards you with a certain number of coins, with the weekly trials providing better rewards and the daily trials taking less time to complete. The best thing about these attempts is that you can usually knock them out while doing another activity that earns you coins.
3rd Participate in Freeplay World Events
In addition to two cases throughout the campaign, you do not actually need to participate in Freeplay. You can spend your time completing contracts and playing missions if you like a little more direction. However, Freeplay can be the most lucrative source of coins.
Every world event you fill earns you up to 2,000 coins. Freeplay events that you find by flying around the Bastion until an icon pops up usually take around ten minutes or less. This makes them more economical in terms of time than history assignments.
It is a little annoying that you can't see the world events on the map so you know where to go, but flying around the Bastion has its advantages. If you find a treasure chest during your travels, you can also get up to 2,000 coins and several nice things.
4th Complete Challenges
Some challenges you will naturally complete when you play through the campaign, but it is smart to check out the challenge menu to see what to aim for. The challenge reward varies, with slightly outputting less than 1000 coins and other worth more than 2000. Some challenges instead reward blueprints. There are many challenges to complete, from weapons to combat exploration and more.
Mission and contract
You earn a decent amount of coins simply from playing through the campaign. You can play missions to earn more coins, but you will not earn the full amount again in our experience. Optional contract assignments, which can be captured from any of the three deal boards in Fort Tarsis, also reward you with a few thousand coins. Contracts, as page content, take less time than history assignments.
Where to spend coins in Anthem
You will never retire in Anthem so you can't save your money endlessly . You can spend your coins in several places. As previously mentioned, the regulator business sells manufactured materials. It is located right in front of the Fort Tarsis launch slot. You can also check out the selected items at the Regulator store. These items rotate out a few days and range from vital materials to full costumes.
Alternatively, you can look at the selected items in the store by accessing your map menu and switching to "Selected". You see the same object from the regulator shop here. You will also see the same item in Selected store on the market in Fort Tarsis. There is a lot of repetition throughout the various business pages of Anthem so it will be interesting to see how Fort Tarsi's economy evolves over time. We imagine that there will be more variety when the time goes on.
Next time you visit Forge to replace your look, check the "Buy" tab when you change your look. Here you can buy new helmets, vinyls (themes Javelin skins) and animations that your landing and victory make up. Updating your appearance can be quite expensive, but make sure you watch how many coins you throw at each purchase.
