As you play through Team Sonic Racing, you’ll earn in-game currency called Credits. At the beginning of the game, it’s not entirely clear as to what these Credits are used for. For gamers looking to farm Credits in Team Sonic Racing, the methods you can use to earn them also aren’t immediately clear. To help give you a better idea what to do with your Credits, we’ve put together a quick guide explaining what Credits are for and how they’re earned in Team Sonic Racing.
What Credits Are For in Team Sonic Racing
Credits are a form of in-game currency in Team Sonic Racing. Rather than purchase things specifically, Credits can only be used to purchase Mod Pods in Team Sonic Racing. Each Mod Pod costs 10 Credits and contains a random assortment of goods such as paint and accessories to customize your vehicles with.
Mod Pods are akin to a Loot Box in games like Overwatch, though no real money is needed to buy and open them. In fact, it’s quite easy to earn Credits in Team Sonic Racing. Almost everything you do in Team Sonic Racing awards Credits, some more efficiently than others. To earn Credits, you’ll need to play through the campaign modes like Team Adventure and complete races, with Credits earned at the end of every race you complete.
You can also earn Credits through Drift Events which some may find to be a quicker method of farming Credits. Of course, it all depends on personal preference and individual performance. The better you do in a race, the more Credits you earn. For example, you can earn up to 20 Credits by placing first with more Credits available based on difficulty.
If you play on Extra Hard and place first in a race, you’ll earn more Credits than placing first on an easier difficulty setting. You can also earn Credits by learning how to rack up Star Points during a race. In the end, the way you earn Credits is up to you. If you want to run through quick races, you can focus on Drift Events.
If you want to maximize the amount of Credits you earn, you can work your way through the campaign on Extra Hard difficulty, rack up Star Points, and come in first at the end of each race. Once you have 10 Credits, you’ll be able to purchase 1 Mod Pod and open it to receive a random assortment of items in Team Sonic Racing.
