PUBG Crates | Player Unknown Battlegrounds
PUBG crates are obtained wither through buying them with Battle Points, which serve as the in-game currency, or as purchasing them on the marketplace with real money.
Battlegrounds features special crates that players can acquire via in-game currency or, if playing on PC on the Steam Community Market. There are many different types of crates that can be acquired and they are primarily used to boost the cosmetic value of the game. After all PUBG is not just about mutilating and killing, you have to look good while you’re at it! This is true to such an extent that the rarest of PUBG items and cosmetics fetch hundreds of dollars of real money on the Steam Community Market. It is, of course possible to strike it lucky and get these items from crates.

With PUBG now available on Xbox One, it is definitely the right time to take a look at how PUBG crates work. In Australia, such is the anticipation of the 12.12.17 Xbox One release date that Xbox Australia are dropping three real crates containing Xbox goodies in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane
To earn Battle Points (BP) you must play the game and earn them through kills and simply staying alive for a long time! The game developers have made a system that staggers the cost of PUBG crates so that each crate you earn or buy in a given week costs more than the last, as follows:
First crate: 700 BP
Second crate: 1,400 BP
Third crate: 2,800 BP
Fourth crate: 4,200 BP
Fifth crate: 5,600 BP
Sixth crate: 7,000 BP
This is done to “enforce a soft limit on the number of crates you can buy a week to make sure there is rarity and value in the marketplace.” (https://pubg.gamepedia.com). There is a strict limit of 6 crates per week.
It is worth mentioning that when players use BP to buy crates it is randomly decided whether they will receive a Survivor Crate or a Wanderer Crate.
