After a long wait, Omega Strikers is back! For those unaware, Omega Strikers is a top-down PvP “footbrawler” (although it’s way more similar to hockey than football). You can choose from a variety of Strikers to play 3v3 matches where you’ll be trying to hit the puck into your opponents’ heavily guarded goal.
There are also various cosmetics and unlockable in the game. You’ll be unlocking them with coins, tokens and tickets, among other things. With so many different currencies in Omega Strikers, you might be confused on which currency is used for what. Here I’ll go over each currency as in-depth as I can.
If you want to try out Omega Strikers, you can play it for free on Steam, Nintendo Switch, iOS and Android. PlayStation and Xbox will be coming at a later date.
First off we have Striker Credits which are, you guessed it, used to unlock Strikers. As of right now, most Strikers cost 10,000 Striker Credits. New Strikers, though, will start off costing 50,000 Striker Credits. At the start of the season following a Striker’s release, their cost will lower to 30,000.
How to Earn Striker Credits
Striker Credits can be earned in a few different ways. The easiest way is by playing matches. It seems you can get around 400-500 Striker Credits per match. I’m unsure of exact amounts, but I’m guessing it’s based on how well you do. For example: I got 420 credits from a match I won, but 480 from a match I lost.
Emotes and other cosmetics can be purchased with Style Points. It’ll cost you 30 Style Points for each emote currently available. Emoticons will cost you either 10 or 20 Style Points, although it’s unclear what determines which price.
How to Earn Style Points
You can earn Style Points a few different ways. One way to earn them is via level up, although I’m unsure whether this is random or not. There are also quite a few Style Points to be earned throughout the Striker Pass. Just be aware that most rewards in the Striker Pass require you to purchase the premium path.
The most reliable way to earn Style Points is through Striker Affinity. At Tier 4 you’ll earn 20 Style Points and at Tier 7 you’ll earn 50. Striker Affinity can be earned either through simply playing as a character or with Affinity Tokens.
As mentioned previously, Affinity Tokens can be used to raise your Striker Affinity. One Affinity Token will earn you 5,000 Striker Affinity with the character of your choosing. This can be useful for speeding up the process of earning affinity with your favorite character. Alternatively, you could use your tokens on Strikers you don’t plan on using so that you can still receive their rewards.
How to Earn Affinity Tokens
Affinity Tokens can be earned via daily missions or the Striker Pass. The Striker Pass, once again, will require you to purchase the premium path if you want most of the rewards. As for the daily missions, every day you’ll get one mission to play a match as a random character. Unfortunately, these can be characters you don’t own. If you end up getting a character you’re unable to play, you’ll have to wait until the next day.
The premium currency in Omega Strikers is Ody Points. They can only be purchased and are the only way to get the majority of the game’s cosmetics. Luckily, they aren’t used to purchase anything that would give one player an advantage.
Ody Points Pricing
You can purchase Ody Points at around 100 points per US$1. You can get a slight bonus to this depending on how much you spend at a time. This means that skins will cost you either US$9 or US$13 in Ody Points. Keep in mind that you can’t purchase exact amounts, so this is more accurately US$10 or US$15. It’s also important to know that any Ody Points purchased will only be available on the platform you purchased them on.
What Are the Pink Tickets You Get From Missions?
You might be wondering what the pink tickets available as mission rewards are. Since the game doesn’t tell you when clicking on them, it can be confusing. These tickets represent Striker Pass XP and you can see the amount a mission will award you by hovering over the icon.
That’s all of the currencies in Omega Strikers as of right now. Since the game is so new, there isn’t a ton of information available yet, but this is everything I’ve been able to find so far. If any more information is discovered, I’ll be sure to update this guide accordingly.
