Battlefield 1 - Scraps and Battlepacks Explained
Posted in battlefield 1
Scraps are a new in-game currency in Battlefield 1 that players can spend to buy Enhanced and Superior Battlepacks, both of which reward weapon skins of specific rarities. Scraps can be obtained in two ways, one of which involves spending real money.
Battlepacks are not a new feature in the Battlefield series but Dice have decided to simplify things this time around - they have focused on one type of pack which they refer to as simply "The Battlepack".
What are Battlepacks
These "reward crates" are much like engrams in Destiny that players open to reveal new random loot. The difference in BF1 is that the loot is from a known pool (that the player will be made aware of) and the loot comes in the form of:
By simply playing a match and sticking it out until the end, you have the chance to be rewarded with a Battlepack that can be opened in the main in-game menu.Tip:
Battlepacks appear under the More -> Battlepacks section from the main menu.
Enhanced and Superior Battlepacks
Besides regular Battlepacks that are rewarded following matches, two other Battlepacks known as Enhanced and Superior exist in the game. These packs are not offered for free - players must spend the in-game currency, Scraps, to purchase them.
As mentioned above, both of these packs offer the guaranteed reward of rare skins. The amount of Scraps required differs depending on the type of crate you wish to buy:
- Regular Battlepack - 200 Scraps
- Enhanced Battlepack - 450 Scraps
- Superior Battlepack - 900 Scraps
Rare items can also drop from regular Battlepacks but they are not guaranteed.
How to get Scraps
Scraps can be obtained in two ways:Disposing of unwanted weapon skins
- salvaging a weapon skin or bonus item will exchange the item for Scraps, which you can accumulate and later spend on Battlepacks. It's a great way to exchange your unwanted loot for the chance of something different.Purchasing using real money
- since Scraps are the in-game currency there will always be a way to buy more with real money - it's the standard feature with almost every modern AAA game. If you wish to spend real money for more Scraps then you can do so, at your own cost.
Battlepacks are offered on a weekly basis, the pool of which is rotated following the weekly reset. Players are told which loot items are possible rewards from the current weekly Battlepacks.
This gives you the chance to blitz your Scraps in the (RnG) hope of getting a known reward in the current week, or holding off for the next reset in the anticipation that the loot table might contain something you really want.
There is no foreseeing the future loot table so it may take several weeks before a very rare skin becomes available.
