Beginner Tips for accumulating credits

  1. Over time, you will want to upgrade to better planes or at lease do technical upgrades on the plane that you have to enable you to be more competitive.  A plane without tech upgrades (even an advanced plane) will get obliterated by your competition very easily.  IMPORTANT NOTE:  It is much more beneficial to upgrade a plane than to fly a "better" plane that is also not upgraded.
  2. Cost if you buy credits (they ain't cheap)
    Cost of Coins (they ain't cheap either)
  3. Tech Upgrades are essential to making your plane competitive.  Unfortunately they cost credits and coins.  Credits can be earned, coins, however, have to be bought or earned thru offers.  (sometimes you get a coin for watching a brief video).  Next time you buy something online, check the special coin offers from tapjoy on the game - you can get up to 400+ coins for certain offers.  Be warned however, sometimes the sponsoring company Tapjoy does not cough up the coins and you may have to bug them and Z2Live with emails.
  4. Campaigns are an easy way to accumulate credits for a beginner.  You can replay a mission in the campaign once every 8 hours.  The first  campaign (Markovia) has 5 missions.  You can play the first 2 (Hunt for the Dominus and Factory on the Sea) without a wingman and you can then play a 3rd mission with a wingman.  Just playing these 3 missions each day will get you up to 1200 credits - well on your way to some nice upgrades or a better plane.  I will dig more into the campaigns and plane types in future posts.
  5. Survivial Mode is also an easy way to accumulate credits for a beginner.  You can earn up to 600+ credits per game.  You can also get a partner which helps accelerate the rounds.  If you're lucky, you'll get a killer partner who will help you go to the higher levels.  Beware of partners who die quick and hope to get a free ride on your hard work!  (both partners get the score even if one dies quick).
  6. Versus Mode is probably the hardest way to accumulate credits if you are a beginner as you will be getting matched up with good players that will likely obliterate you fairly easily. 
Easy ways to get Coins but be warned, you may have to bug Tapjoy and Z2Live with emails to cough them up

  2. Hi,

    Great site...I Love It! Question: How do I tell when I am about to hit by a missile...I still have a hard time timing it even though you get the warning signs. Also How do you know what direction it is coming from? Thanks!

    1. when ever the beeping is really fast

    2. A red arrow warns you about the missiles direction

      Delete
    3. Actually, if a missile is fired at you two things will simultaneously happen:
      1. An orange arrow indicating the direction the missile is coming from. This arrow blinks faster when the missile gets closer.
      2. A beeping sound which will get faster when the missile is closer.

      If a missile is fired at you and you do not get any of these warnings then the missile is not locked and will not hit you at all.

      If someone fires a missile and you immediately get hit even before seeing these signs, that means that they're right there on top/behind you and you immediately got hit the moment it was fired.

  4. Among the offers on Tapjoy the ones from a company called Bigfish stick somewhat out as they are the ones with the highest rewards. But I experience rather often that they don't work. I download the software but don't get the promised coins. Maybe the problem is on my side but I doubt as I don't encounter any issues with any other Tapjoy offers.

    The last time I experienced this was yesterday, when there was a Mahjong game to download for the reward of 26 coins. But they never showed up in my account after I downloaded and run the game.

    I'm pretty sure that it is not Z2Live's fault but they are involved and should be aware of this. So, is it just me or do you face similar issues with Bigfish offers?

  6. Hi,

    Regarding the free offers by Tapjoy, I seldom see an entire list, but I always see the "Sign up for Tapjoy" which gives me 1 coin =.= Does it have anything to do with the fact that I'm from Malaysia? I was wondering if the offers were country-specific. On the rare occasion I see another offer which gives more than 1 coin, but other than that I just get that and the "Watch this video" offer.. :'(

    1. it's always there, but for a free coin every 30-60 minutes that you are not on the device you can click on it and press back and still get a coin.

    2. @ahleb88
      I live in new zealand and I don't see an entire list either. Change your location to U.S. and you will see an entire list.

  7. My tip for getting credits easily is doing survival. Get to wave six and surrender. You can also go to wave five and quit. You get 100 for wave five and 150 for wave six. Don't do co-op though, your partner is only gonna think you're an idiot.

  9. I know the best way of earning credits Metalstorm Forever! I can earn 690 credits in 2 and a half minutes. What you need:
    A trustworthy friend
    A fast agility plane
    Caution
    Step 1: Get your friend and do versus match and invite him/her. Step 2:Keep crashing onto the ground for the rest of the match
    Step 3: Be careful about how many crashes are done; I like a score of 14-14. Make sure you keep it equal so you make sure you don't lose any skill points.

  24. When I used the suicideing tactic I found something odd... My partner flew really low and I suicided I would spawn really low and I could get about 22-23 sucideds per game. I don't know if it's a glitch because it didn't work when I flew really low. I hope it works for you!

  25. tapjoy works well for blue coins in Germany (at least for me)
    just download from a large variety of free games/apps, start the downloaded game/app once and you get the coins instantly
    optional: remove the downloaded game (unless you want more from a hello kitty app than just the coins that is)
    games/apps are worth 1-9 blue coins each
    you can even download while playing

    i ve only been playing since last weekend, but I like the game very much so far

  28. I recently got MSW on our iPad for my grandkids...(ok I love it too). I saw that it can be played on a big screen via AirPlay and Apple TV. I've got both and still can't get it to see MSW. Any suggestions?

    Thanks

  29. This is what I do:

    To get Credits:
    Do a versus match against yourslef! take 2 ios devices, make them fight, and using your priority device, make it win and make the other one loose. you can get usually an 8-0 victory. brings in lots of credits.

    To get blue coins:
    Get a Tapjoy account, and download the apps, run them, then delete them. I got 300 blue coins in 1 day!
