Entering Black Market
You will need to first find the Black Market coordinate, consider asking around Alliance or on the State chat for any existing black market locations.
To enter the black market, you will first need to attack it as if you would with any rebel targets. The Black Market has HP and Defense that roughly equals to a level 1 rebel. You will also need to have at least level 1 rebel target researched before you can attack it.
Breaking through the defense of Black Market will net you small amount of Black Market Credits, low level Black Market material, and small resource items.
It should be noted that while your Commander is camped at the Black Market, he or she cannot be attacked and thus cannot be captured. This may be a good way to temporary hide your commanders to get him out of your base.
You will have to withdraw your commander by using your “Go Home” button if you wish to retrieve him.
Other Ways to Get Black Market Credit
Aside from attacking the Black Market for credits, you can also get Black Market credits through care packages, challenges, the Black Market Shooting Range, and exclusive sales. At the time of writing, Black Market Shooting Range is not yet available.
Buying Items from the Black Market
Generally speaking, buying highest level gears directly is the cheaper and more effective way to spend your Black Market credits.
The best strategy is to do simple math to help you decide the most cost effective way to purchase materials. Because it takes 4 same level materials to combine for a higher level. The ratio is as followed:
Level 1 Material: 1
Level 2 Material: 4
Level 3 Material: 16
Level 4 Material: 64
Level 5 Material: 256
Level 6 Material: 1024
Calculate the cost your self to help you decide the best item to buy. At the time of writing, it appears that buying level 1 materials and combine them for higher level is more cost effective.
Treat Black Market like any rebel targets that you encounter. Compare the Black Market gears against other gears that you may otherwise craft. Our Gear reference page contains all of the gear information. Only aim for Black Market equipment if they become better than what you have.
