Marauders is still in its Closed Alpha phase, but a handful of players are already playing and loving it. In the game, money is an important resource since you can buy a handful of stuff with it. However, to farm it efficiently, you’ll want to use a highly efficient method as well.
In this article, we’ll be talking about some of the best ways you can make money in the game.
Best Ways to Make Money in Marauders
There are three major methods you can use to make as many money as possible in the game. However, take note that while these methods work in the game’s current state, there’s a huge possibility that the developers will change it as development progresses.
Without further ado, these are three main ways you can make money in Marauder:
You can grab up to six contracts on a daily basis, and doing these contracts will net you a handful of money. These contracts can be found in the Contracts tab inside your home base. The best part about this moneymaking method is that the contracts you’ll have to do are actually quite easy.
For the most part, you’ll be tasked with finding items or killing enemies using specific weapons. Any of these tasks can be done pretty quickly and easily. However, the payout can be really big, ranging from 9,000 to 18,000 depending on the contract.
As such, I highly recommend grabbing all of your daily contracts first before you head to the zone so you can complete them as you go.
Raid the Commando Ship
The second method involves fighting AI-controlled commandos onboard the commando ship. You’ll be able to spot this ship fighting at other ships nearby, though it’s not a 100% spawn. You can think of this as a field boss event where you and other players will look for it and head inside it for some juicy loots.
Once inside, you’ll encounter a number of commandos that you’ll have to take down for their high-tier guns and loots. However, do take note that they have far better damage and good accuracy, but since they’re still AI-controlled, you should be able to take them out.
You’ll want to make your way to the front and loot everything you can come across as possible, then escape to the extraction point with all of the loots you’ve got.
What makes this one particularly challenging, however, is that you’re not only up against the AI-controlled commandos but players as well. As such, it’s best to do this task alongside a party member to make it a lot easier.
Join a Match
This method is a really cheesy one that you’d want to do only if you absolutely need money and got nothing on you. This involves queueing up in a match without anything on you. Once inside, head over to the back of your ship, loot the pistols in the boxes, then go to the escape pod and leave.
This is a very simple method that will net you a good amount of money for a relatively short time.
Genshin Impact: Sandglass Dendroculus Puzzle Guide
Get rewarded for clearing this new exploration-based mechanic.
Primal Sandglasses are a new mechanic for exploration that you’ll find in the Ruins of King Deshret. Flipping one will start a timed challenge where you’ll need to flip other Primal Sandglasses. Doing so within the time will grant you a reward.
In this guide we’ll teach you how to beat one of these challenges.
The Sandglass Location
To find the Primal Sandglass that rewards you with a Dendroculus and an Exquisite Chest you’ll want to go west of The Mausoleum of King Deshret.
Get to the red-circled area – there’s a Four-Leaf Sigil around to make the travel faster. You’ll end in an area with one of the squared-floor panels that you can activate by interacting with the book front of it. This will create an updraft that will get you to a Dendroculus waiting on top, plus a Forged Primal Light.
From that position you can look at the second area, the one we encircled in a blue circle in the first image. Take the Forged Primal Light to the panel there to create a Primal Sandglass.
The Sandglass Time Trial Challenge
Once you flip the Primal Sandglass you’ll have29 seconds to flip the other two. It may look simple, but there’s invisible walls that’ll make tricky getting to the others.
First you’ll want to do a straight-line run towards where the red arrow points: the part where you can see stone steps rather than sand.
From here turn to the right and keep going forward until you crash against the invisible wall. Then employ some wall-hugging: move while sticking close to the wall so that at the moment it stops being there, your character will get past it to the other side.
When you ‘see’ the door get past it and turn back in direction to the hourglass. This time the wall will be to the right-side of your character. Make your way to the Sandglass normally, and we’re on to the last one.
From that sandglass you’ll run straight to the second batch of stone-floor.
At that point, turn 90° degrees to the right until you see another invisible wall flare up blue. You’ll turn 90° degrees to your right again. Make sure to wall-hug a little so that you can see where the wall ends.
After you’ve cleared the wall do a full turn around, leaving it to left-side of your body and run in a straight line like you were trying to get the torch close to the last Sandglass. You’ll be clear off the wall in a matter of seconds and you can make a beeline for the last Sandglass. Flip it.
Now just walk forward in the direction of the Four-Leaf Sigil, but don’t use it. If you look down you’ll be able to see the Dendroculus and an Exquisite Chest to its right.
