Don’t Panic: Titanfall Has A Market With Burn Cards Now
Publisher EA’s latest shooting property Titanfall has introduced a marketplace in its latest update. Simply called The Black Market, the shop sells a series of cosmetic items, along with actual gameplay content.
For aesthetic purposes, there are insignias for both the IMC and Militia factions in the game. Once purchased with the in-game currency that The Black Market uses, you’ll be able to attach the emblems to your loadouts.
Insignias seem to be on the costlier side of purchases, as the blog post detailing the update shows most items being available for 25,000 credits.
Probably more useful to players, The Black Market also sells Burn Cards. These cards that enhance gameplay in Titanfall can be bought in specific packs.
For a regular pack that contains a random selection of items, you’ll need 5,000 credits, while more specific trades can increase the cost to up to 50,000. Targeted packs include weapons, ordinance and a Titan pack.
So, how do you go about earning these credits? Much like every shooter, you just need to complete matches and clear a list of challenges. You’ll receive 500 credits, just to fulfill your duties during rounds, with 250 extra for winning.
Additionally, players that cap out at level 50 will start converting a part of their experience to credits. You can also sell unwanted Burn Cards for a small sum.
More updates are said to be coming to The Black Market. More than likely, this would include new weapons and so on.
As a rather important side note, the Titanfall posts that you needn’t worry about some pay-to-win tactics. It states:
With the introduction of an in-game currency, some may worry that the next step is that we will let players spend real-world money to get an edge in the game. We have stated several times that Titanfall will not have micro-transactions. Fear not, for we plan to keep that promise – NO MICROTRANSACTIONS! The only way to get Credits is by playing the game!
