All our games are free to play. Most features are ready and available once you start the game or as soon as you unlock them as part of the game progression. We have designed The Contest so that players are not required to purchase Units to play or level up their Champions.
However, Units are available for purchase and are valuable resources that can help players to progress in the game. There are also several other ways to obtain Units that do not involve real-world money purchases.
Units can be found:
- In the Unit Store
- In the Summoner's Market
- As a part of leveling up rewards
- As a part of quest crystal rewards
- As a part of arena milestone rewards
- As a part of alliance event rewards
- As a part of Arena Crystal rewards
- As a part of story quest completion and exploration rewards
This is the easiest way to get Units. You can purchase different packages in the Unit store. If you are having issues with your purchase, make sure that you read this article.
Note: Bonus items might sometimes be added to specific Unit packages as part of special offers and promotions.
Subscription cards are also available in the Unit Store. These cards offer a higher value in Units than a normal package, provided that you take the time to sign in every day to claim the rewards.
The Summoner’s Market is a web-based version of the in-game store that you can access and make purchases on directly from our website at store.playcontestofchampions.com!
The Summoner’s Market allows Summoners to use a wider variety of payment options, independent of their App Store provider, and gives you special bonuses and options unavailable in-game!
You’ll be able to purchase the following:
- Unit Bundles with BONUS UNITS! The Webstore is the greatest value for Unit bundle purchases.
- A special Potion bundle that you can purchase once per week
- Special Daily Offers exclusive to the Webstore!
To access the store, you’ll need to ensure your account is linked to a Kabam ID. Use that information to log in at store.playcontestofchampions.com and your purchases will show up in your Marvel Contest of Champions account.
Arenas are a good place to look for free Units. Check the milestone rewards of your arena to see the available prizes, and plan your strategy accordingly. Fight as many times as possible to increase your score and unlock the milestones you need.
Quest and Arena Crystals have a chance to drop Units. Quest Crystals can be found on quests, and you can purchase Arena Crystals with 20,00 Battle Chips.
Story quests will reward you items and Units if you complete an act or a chapter in the game, and you will also receive rewards if you explore 100% of the quest map. You will also receive completion and exploration rewards for every episode in the chapter.
