How to earn Cryptokeys fast

It isn’t clear yet what is the best way for earning Cryptokeys, but you can see in the list below some confirmed methods that grant you the fastest way for getting Crypto keys at the moment:

  • It’s important to say that there is no correlation between amount of XP that you earn while playing the game and Crypto keys!
  • You will get Crypto Key even if you lost the game.
  • You earn Cryptokeys after playing a multiplayer games. You get 1+ CryptoKey per match, but only if you play the game from the very beginning until the end.
  • If you leave or join a game half way through you’ll get less Crypto Key points compared to the amount that you get if you stay through the entire game.
  • It’s not important how long the game is. The best practice is to choose Team Deathmatch mode that lasts for 6 to 8 minutes.
  • You should play shorter game modes but an entire match.
  • Some players stated that earning Crypto Keys could be something to do with Dark Ops challenges, but it’s unconfirmed yet.
  • Maybe there will be an option to pay with real money for the Crypto keys, but this option will be added later probably on Friday when the game will be officially out for everyone. Some players guess that Black Market is not activated yet, and that is the main reason why you can’t do any micro transaction. (unconfirmed)
