Shops and currencies
Shop

With Admin Coins (the Premium Currency), buy the Battlepass only as a low spender. If you're a dolphin, buy the Golden Binaries packs as that's the rarest currency in game (gear is the real gacha in Counter Side).

Shop

With Quartz, buy the weekly Classified Recruitment Package for 2750, Gold Bins Monthly Pack for 1000. Remaining Quartz can be spent on daily shop resets.

Shop

With Task Planet Points, buy Operators. Preferably Kim Hana if PvE focused or Sigma if PvP focused. Later you will also buy Unit Data for characters that received Rearms to upgrade their skills.

Shop

With Credits, buy all items that can be bought with Gold on "Todays Deal". Refresh the shop 5 times with Quartz - it's worth it. Don't waste your Credits on leveling characters - just do it slowly over time as you farm/skip stages.

Shop

With Gauntlet points, the first priority are the 80 Classified Recruitment tickets. Next priority is Maze and Gordias Gears. Preferably Counter Maze then Gordias Crown then Gordias Movement.

Shop

With Dive Imaginary Cores, buy the Special Ship Schematics first, then the Unique Materials for a ship you're currently building/upgrading.

Shop

With Ownerless Business Cards, buy the limited items weekly.

With Partner Business Cards, well, pull for N and R rarity, then sell them for Ownerless Business Cards then see above.

Shop

With Danger Close Performance Points, buy the Maze and Hummingbird Gears.

Shop

With Challenge Medals, buy the Maze Gears.

Shop

With Consortium Tokens, purchase the Gold Binaries then the Fusion Cores then the APT cores.

Shop

With Event currency, clear the entire shop besides the gear. Gear pieces from events aren't usually worth it.
