Crossout: Tutorials | Part 3 – Marketplace System

Crossout: Tutorials | Part 3 – Marketplace System


Hey folks! Welcome to episode three of Crossout Tutorials! Last time we talked about the in-game crafting system and how to create new parts out of old ones! In case you didn’t know, all resources and parts can be purchased and sold in the game’s marketplace. In this episode, we’ll cover Crossout economics! The principal currency of Crossout is gold coins. If you have enough gold, you can buy anything you want. The marketplace in-game is a separate and unique ecosystem in itself, which can be used to make profit. The main goods in this market are: parts and resources. These parts, materials and everything else you own in-game can be sold. The marketplace is a unique place where you can truly buy and sell pretty much anything, from stuff you’ve acquired in the wastes, or crafted in comfort from your workbench. The pricing works in your favor, by the way. Just check the market average price for whatever item you want to sell, but you are free to set any price you wish for your item. You can opt to use the game’s recommended price and sell the item virtually instantly. But if you want to make more, then you might have to wait a bit longer, until that part is purchased manually. How long you have to wait will depend on several factors. First of which is how many copies of that particular item are available in the market and how difficult it is to craft. You can also sell your stuff directly from your storage. Just right click your mouse over the desired item and select the corresponding option from the dropdown menu. By the way, this menu will also show current buying and selling prices for this item. Once you have decided to sell your stuff, simply enter the desired price and that’s it. You can then spend your hard-earned cash directly via the Market. It works just like before, but in the opposite direction. First you choose the desired parts and resources you wish to buy. Current offers on the market are displayed in the sale menu. The Crossout economy is defined entirely by its live players, so the prices will change according to the whim of the player base. You can be flexible: make a purchase at current prices or set your own price, below the market average. But someone who is desperate for gold coins, might easily satisfy your trading demand. Once the transaction has been concluded, you can install the part onto your ride, keep it in your storage or use it at your workbench. Player interaction is what makes the Crossout economy come alive and stay dynamic at all times. Can you make a fortune buying and re-selling items? Yes, in fact, you can: some of our players enjoy the economic part of the game as much, as they enjoy combating each other in the wastes. You can take a dive into the game’s market at any stage in your character career, but you will have to be careful with your in-game funds to be truly successful at trading. Remember, that every transaction on the market is a subject to a tax of 10%. This means that you will have to be extra attentive of current prices and understand well if you are turning an actual profit, adding that 10% in your mind. But potential profits are worth it, especially early on. The system excludes any possible types of scam out there. You cannot manually select who exactly will buy your item. Here are a few tips on how to make some startup capital: First things first – always use the market with a particular goal in mind: either to sell something you don’t need, or buy something that you require. Just as I said before: some parts can easily be found as loot after battle. Sometimes it is better not to save up stuff to craft a part, but simply buy it off the market, by selling some useless junk first. You can do the opposite thing: don’t sell resources and items separately. Make a new part out of them! You can use the profits from selling this part to buy something more worthwhile! There’s good money to be made by selling the most common kinds of resources. Scrap metal and copper sells really well at all times. The turnover of copper is so high, that you can easily speculate using this resource. Just keep the tax in mind when you trade. You don’t need to be online to trade your stuff. But if you want to be a serious trader, you better visit the market as often as possible. Sometimes resources and parts can be sold at a very low price, since some players might be looking to make a quick buck selling stuff. Naturally, such deals don’t last too long, that’s why you’ll need to be on your toes or simply online and browsing at the right moment. But potential profit from selling this stuff later at a higher price is worth it. If you are really low on money, always remember that premium packs come with gold coins as part of the bundle. Premium packs can be purchased with real money via the Shop tab. Yes, please don’t confuse it with the tab called Market. The contents of each pack varies and aside from gold coins they might have an entire blueprint and associated parts for a ride, plus some unique paint, or all of this together! Gold coins can be purchased separately and also come in packs of varying value, ranging from a few hundred to a few thousand. The best part about trading on the market is that your profit depends entirely on your activity on the market. But there’s no real pressure to convert real world money into premium currency. In-game gold can be made simply by playing the game and trading stuff with other players. There’s no such thing as mandatory payment of real money in Crossout. That’s it. Using the crafting system and the game’s market, you can concentrate on the most important part of the game building the best possible ride to survive in the wastes. Your starter ride must be getting kinda boring by now, so the next tutorial will be dedicated to building a better ride. Then we’ll take a look at various game modes and clan wars. Please remember, that Crossout is still being tested and some of the gameplay elements might be subject to change. Don’t hesitate to ask your questions in the comments, the best of which will be answered in future videos! Well, it’s time for me to hit the road. Be seeing ya!

  1. А будут обучения на русском языке?

  2. I would like to see kph/mph speed counter of our vehicle when we press F12 🙂

  3. I need some advice I keep finding old videos and I have alot of hours in this already on Xbox it seems like I'm not getting no where. I'm getting levels but it seems when I build I over do it and then my level is high and I get wrecked I got savages but recently switched to nomad to get machine guns but my big question eventually can you put more then 55 parts on your build

  4. an some stuff definitely needs adjusting 3000 coupons for a damn box to craft it's either lower the cost or let us earn more then 6 damn coupons a day because when you do try and play the ,40 gas raids you either get 3 people an get wrecked or have teammates with every piece of armor in the game so their score is high but have crap guns

  5. yay another episode. I love crossout and on the Xbox One I'm almost lvl 17 and almost have levithans

  6. I made a nice profit on the market, already past a thousand gold coins on my Xbox account

  7. Can there be a way to trade with friends and clan members so you can start crafting for teammates

  8. this is probably the most cheezy game that have been created from last 3 years

  9. I have a problem , when i finish a game im not getting scrap

  10. can we please have free for all mode with no lock timer please

  11. we also need more online game modes like team death with no capture the flag

  12. This is a fun game 🙂

  13. personally I find the way the game is now it seems to be a really big money grab. to renting work benches for 5 or more parts to downloadable content being over priced. and the market oh man, I haven't had one thing bought from me. so I had to buy coins.

  14. very cool nice to se some stuff come from the labs in English 🙂 thx love the game and pushing it to all and more

  15. the market is a great fauture of this game! and you can easely become rich if you know what to do 😉

  16. Here is a question why am i still alive

  17. what the hell! I have more than 3 shotguns and it won't let me upgrade them!

  18. Will there ever be crossplay between PC – PS4?

  19. we need custom games in cross out and an option to see our friends cars and compare them like side by side and part by part

  20. I like how they used a loop that was also used in one of the mirai nikki osts

  21. Hey guys i know that you wont read my comment but if you do can you tell me if any game mode in the future will allow you to win gold coins????

  22. where is the damn asia server

  23. Only played a couple games and have figured this is way to much pay to win bs.

  24. Give us your coins, Americans. Seriously, to make us have to rent benches just to make stuff in-game. And then you get to wait hours in some cases after that. I mean, do you want me to send you cans of food next? The game itself is fun, if full of balancing issues, but the crafting is turning me off fast, and I'm almost level 10 after 2 days of play. As an old WoT player, I am not going to be falling for this transaction BS again. You're going to be charging real cash for this game, Dah? And on top of that you have stuff on the market that would cost HUNDREDS of dollars to buy in real world currency. No thanks, Comrade. Have better things to do with my time and money.

  25. Can't find this on Xbox store and I don't know how to get Microsoft store on Xbox one pls help

  26. Yo crossout add mac support please. want to be able to play when i don't have my pc..

  27. Lol they make copper and coupons hella time consuming to get so that you will buy them, it's a awesome game but the fact of how hard copper is to get really holds it back

  28. After playing for a while I can confidently say this game is pretty much pay to win. The whole marketplace is based on people who buy the ingame currency and they pretty much set the price for everything. Leveling and gathering resources in this game is extremely slow and frustrating. You can spend 10 hours "farming" or pay $5 and get what you want. Depending on how good you are you need to play 30-100 games to gain a level. Only good tactic is to wait until your team has withered down your opponents and then pick them off as you almost no rewards to removing all the guns from an opponent. Matchmaking is just plain broken, you can try to pimp out your low level rid but all it does is make you face opponents with far superior weapons. Was told the game gets better after level 10 but the grind there is extremely frustrating and boring. First 10 levels should be when the game grabs you, not pushes you away. Marketplace will be the downfall of this game, pay2win players will own everything and anyone else wont be able to afford anything so have to spend months grinding what can be bought for. You can look at how inflation ruins any game with gold sellers in them and this game is completely centered on the marketplace. The rich get richer and the poor have to slave for hours for basically nothing.

  29. Crossout should have a sandbox mode like if you agree

  30. I'd love to spend money on this game, but my phone operator is not supported, so I can't :C And I have so much money available there, it's a shame.

  31. Why no Crossout discord channel? :(((

  32. The moment when you just want to have some armoured tracks to build a tank and notice one of those costs 2k gold…..

  33. you guys should add grappling hook you can drag the enemy or your team with no wheels

  34. guys is it worth to invest on scope on the early stage of game (currently 7 lvl) for a cannon/sniper type of game?

  35. is a clan worth it 500 c

  36. I would suggest making a 3 part guide (separate videos) about the starting factions. Not just the strength and weaknesses of each, but also design philosophy unique to each faction, and tips on how to get started in each.
    Such a guide should probably be limited to what can be accessed within LvL4 of each faction.

  37. i think we need something bigger than old 100mm something whit high damage, high bullet drop and high reload time

  38. do how to get firw bug parts

  39. Hey man love your videos but I need someone to answer this why can't I get scrap after level 17 I need to know it's driving me nuts and I already know I can get scrap from market but I don't get any from missions now why is that

  40. Crossout please help

  41. Crossout you need a wiki app I think it would be really cool I would use it for sure

  42. just so you know crossout devs, that account basically already has everything. Try being legit players like us who have to actually try and get gold, look the game is great. But its a complete money grab. Like Seriously HUNDREDS!!! of dollars for one fucking item on some of the items. which is highly ridiculous. and hell i even have the Born To Fly pack from CBT and yet i can agree with all these players

  43. getting it for the ps4 😁

  44. Does anyone notice the similarities between the first theme song of this video and one from the old Command and Conquer game(s)? It brought back some good memories!

  45. Can we have better performance / also i have a problem with it
    my computer goes on the blue screen when i launch the game and says "Threat stuck in device"
    is it just my horrible laptop or is it a error in game?

  46. Sooooo, there's no way to gift a friend a item?

  47. Can you add in game special missions for earn coins ? The market price of any item is low and i can't buy a new workbench 🙁

  48. "There's no such thing as mandatory payment in Crossout".

    Oh really? How do players get the coins to buy items on the market in the first place? Someone has to pay real money for this market to function; payment is mandatory otherwise the market will crash and everything will be worthless. The first coins had to come from somewhere, and as of now there is no way to get coins except with real money, or from other players(who got it with real money).

    Easy fix: Just add a way to earn in-game currency without paying money(and not from the market). Perhaps make daily missions give gold instead of scrap, or make season objectives have a currency reward. I'm not saying make it alot, but at least make it there, so the market will stay alive long-term.

  49. taxation is theft! free the market!

  50. how do I join a clan

  51. Very informative video, very annoying music.

  52. It would be cool if the Store actually works for Xbox one I got a pack and I don't have it I've been waiting for five days to get this pack and I still don't have it how long does it take to get it working again !!!!?????

  53. Yeah selling ten tires gives me like 1 gold…..

  54. I'd rather hear English with a Russian accent than a Russian trying really hard to sound like a constipated cowboy…

  55. how do you get money/xp quick ?

  56. Is it Simon from neebsgaming?

  57. Isn't this illegal? I'm reporting this Cruel Brutal way of making gold.
    I don't know where you guys are establishing this insane Vehicle destruction frenzy.
    but I will find out and get you King pins in Prison.

  58. for me, in my ps4 account i try to buy something but it says 'Not enough trade slots'
    pls fix, i dont know this market bug thing but pls fix

  59. This market would do good from an external app or website to manage the market and stuff. weather by phone or just a simple web page. Allowing users to check in and play the market where ever they see fit

    Also a novel idea would be adding a 'tip jar' to the exhibition screen. Allowing players to chip either a bit a scrap(ie like 10 pieces) or few gold to blueprints they like, but limiting how often they can do this like how Mabinogi handled their heart stickers which was there commendation system.

  60. how do i add friends

  61. All the great games like this are pay to play :/

  62. I can't find cross out on the Xbox one Australian store, what do I do?

  63. made 10000 last night yea not a big deal yea I trade what about u bruh

  64. make a phone app where you can manage things on the market sell buy that would be great

  65. be carefull with my economy? ok.
    "than the player went an an fought like a maniac got so much scrap metal sold every piece and bought a jawbreacker. i'm only lvl 9"

  66. This guy doesn't emphasise the letter P hard enough

  67. I bought an item for 444c the next price up was 570c and the top was 600c, so i though "profit". Put mine back up on the market for 569c for a quick sale and a small profit, check back an hour later, ALL the other item are now on sale for between 250c and 260c. I got fucking done!! Fuck the dodgy market!!

  68. %10 tax is so much please reduce it

  69. When you have 2 auto cannons and a buzzsaw, it's hard to fight armored tracks and 2 drones. the obligation to pay is to win fairly.

  70. I love this game, I just downloaded it an I play it alot on ps4. I really hope vertical thrusters come to ps4 it would make all my dreams come true.

  71. We all want to things that make structure like e.g. Van doors availible in the market or purchase in storage

  72. I just want to be able to add more weapons, the power requirements is killing me, too much drain per weapon, or not enough power per cab take your pick. How about when say you combine 3 cabs and make one new cab, add at least 1 new power to it as well?

    Say truck cab normally has 9 power, combining 3 gives it 10 power.

  73. Did you ever consider that if you have to teach economics to play a game about vehicular combat, you might be making a big mistake?

  74. I want to sell a item but it says "in use" so I can't sell it. I try to press trade and sell but says"no unused parts available

  75. No mandatory real money payments for in game currency?!?! I love the sound of that!

  76. I'd find it very interesting how the gameplay dynamic might change if they had a map/Mode where players traveled to a certain location to get a better price by elimination a either some of or all of the TAX (10% tax cut down to 7-3% or none) but in order to attain said tax doge you'd have to win a competition mode wherein you manage to evade an enemy team or run a gauntlet of enemy forces. the kinda of thing that would be more wroth it to you if you've built up quite a reserve of stuff and want to cut the tax by hefty margin

  77. help me the server is down again

  78. hi am new to Crossout, when u buy the workbench does it expire?

  79. Please PLEASE make the game more rewarding and switch it back to 300 scrap to build blue parts thank you for your time

  87. how come in batle your cab explodes with you in it how do you not die

  88. When I try and punches something from the market place and it says not enough trade slots? What does that mean? And how do I fix it?

  89. I would suggest making the money less hard to earn, and more common, while making items slightly easier to retrieve, and maybe keep the creation time at a minimal for rare and common objects alike.

  90. How do you sell more items then 20 at a time does the storage expansion help with that

  91. listen I don't know other people but I have invested over 500 bucks in real money and I still drop money on gold could you guys make a vip thing so that players like me who are pay to win feel like we are supporting you ….. I mean think about it its only right I am giving my money to u at cn I get a vip room where all the big dogs go and chat we could get free gold for or part or whatever

  92. This was useless I'm on Xbox
