Counter:Side Shop Guide (Best Items To Buy) – FandomSpot

In the shop you can buy all kinds of items with credits, quartz, admin coins and other farmable in-game currencies.

These are the four available shops in the game:

  • Seasonal
  • exchange center
  • package
  • skin & interior

And in this guide, I’m going to show you the best items to buy from the store – both for a full F2P player and for a P2P player.

Best Items to Buy (F2P &spenders)

The following items or groups of items should be prioritized by both F2P players and donors.

#1: Classified Recruitment Quartz Pack (Bundle)

This item is the only item that F2P players will need to purchase from the Pack Shop on a regular basis.

This pack gets you 220 Classified Recruitment Contracts for 2,750 Quartz, which is practically a bargain. Be sure to buy it every week!

#2: Today’s Deals Article (Exchange Center)

Almost every item in this shop that can be purchased with credits is worth it. Avoid buying items with quartz unless they are classified employment contracts or employment contracts.

The best items you can buy in this shop are:

  • Classified employment contract & employment contract
  • ship material
  • Special catalyst
  • APT core
  • appreciation

Always remember to update the shop items up to five times a day.

This only costs 75 Quartz total, which is a very small amount compared to the returns you can potentially get from each upgrade!

#3: Commodity Items – Single/Bundle Items (Exchange Center)

Supplies (single/package items) / Counter: Side
Consumable items (individual/package items)

The items in the Convenience Goods Shop can only be purchased from Quartz, so you need to be careful not to overspend.

The best items you can buy in this shop are:

  • Fusion Core (x2 weekly)
  • Assault/Anti-Air/Defense Training Permit (Valuable for beginners, but optional for veterans)
  • Set binary package I (x1 monthly)

#4: Consortium Items (Exchange Shop)

The items from this shop can be purchased with coalition tokens, which you can only earn after joining a consortium.

Another shop that sells the best items a F2P player can buy is the Business Card Shop.

Best Items to Buy (Dispensers Only)

The following packs are the best premium items for players who don’t mind spending some money on the game.

Note: Item cost and availability may vary based on factors such as location and limited time events/discounts.

#1: Admin Coin Packs (Package)

Admin Coin Packs

Admin Coins are the real premium currency in this game. It is more valuable than quartz, which is why you should always buy it before anything else with your money.

The best package to buy if you want Admin Coins are the Daily Supply Contracts – as shown in the image above.

18-day delivery contract (Admin Coins) $4.99
30-day delivery contract (Admin Coins) $12.99

#2: Counter Pass (Special Plan)

Purchasing the Counter Pass Special Plan allows you to earn much better rewards compared to the regular Counter Pass.

This purchase is even more valuable for players who want to get the featured unit after reaching Counter Pass level 15 and level 30.

Special Plan (+15 Pass Tiers) 3,370 admin coins
special plan 2,170 admin coins

#3: Golden Binary Packs (Package)

Sorted packages / counter: side

Gold Binaries are one of the most difficult materials to farm in the game – and arguably more valuable than Quartz.

I recommend spending your admin coins on Golden Binary packs more often than other premium items.

The best package to buy from the shop if you want some Golden Binaries is this Binary special package – as shown in the picture above.

Binary special package 1,990 admin coins

#4: Business Growth Packs (Package)

  • Completion Package B (Best Option)
  • Completion Package C
article Costs
Completion Package A $21.99
Completion Package B $33.99
