Do you wish there was a way you could earn some extra points at a time that best suits you? Well, Booster Credits are the answer! Booster Credits are temporary items that offer special benefits for a specific amount of time.
When a Booster Credit is activated, a player will become “Positively Charged” and receive double points for a set amount of time! Depending on the type of Booster Credit, you can earn double points for different types of activity. For example, a Physical Deploy Booster Credit will offer double points on all physical munzees that you deploy within the two hour time frame.
The Positively Charged time period offered by the Booster Credit will stack on multi-point days. For example, if you choose to become Positively Charged during a 2x points day, you will earn 4x the normal points within the set period of time for the Booster.
Currently there are several Booster Credit types available, with more types coming in the future! You can read about the different available types and how to earn them below.
- Personal Munzee captures will NOT receive 2x points when a booster is active.
- Purchasing/Deploying Bouncers (Myths, Pouch Creatures, tPOBs, etc) will NOT receive 2x points when a booster is active. This is because they are neither Physical nor Virtual, as they are not sitting on a specific host type when deployed.
- Capon points are also not affected, as they're either boosting only the Capture or Deploy points.
- Capturing a Charge scattered from an Electric Mystery while a Virtual Capture Booster will still only display "x2 points" in the capture pop up, but the base points are actually quadrupled.
- This is because the base Charge points are already doubling as part of how that specific Munzee type behaves on its own. Then an additional "x2 points" are applied in the pop up with the booster enabled.
How Can You Purchase Booster Credits?
You can purchase two of the Booster Credit types in the Munzee In-App Store through two different bundles. These are currently exclusive to the In-App Store and you'll have to use the in-app currency Zeds to make the purchase.
The Capture Pack comes with one Physical Capture Booster Credit (activated for 120 minutes) and five Munzee Magnets. The purpose of this pack is for using Magnets to capture high-point earning bouncing munzees, alongside a Physical Capture Booster to earn double points!
The Deploy Pack comes with one Virtual Deploy Booster Credit (activated for 60 minutes) and five Temporary Virtual Munzees. The purpose of this pack is for deploying munzees for other players to find and capture. You earn points for every munzee you deploy, so be sure to use your Virtual Deploy Booster to earn twice as many!
How Can You Earn Booster Credits?
There are a handful of ways to earn free Booster Credits as well from different munzee types!
You can also earn one Physical Deploy Booster Credit (activated for 120 minutes) each time you cap and/or deploy 15 Urban Fit Munzees during an MHQ 24-hour day. When activated, the credit will allow players to receive double points on physical deploys of ALL types for the next 2 hours. There is no limit for the amount of Booster Credits a player is able to earn in a day. You can view your credits on your profile.
You can also earn a Physical Deploy Booster Credit by capturing the Hadavale Pouch Creature Munzee! This extremely rare Team Owned Bouncing (TOB) Munzee is tough to find, but when you capture it, you’ll be awarded a Booster Credit.
There is a rare chance that you will earn a Physical Capture Booster Credit (activated for 120 minutes) if you capture a Pimedus Pouch Creature. This Player Owned Bouncer (POB) will operate like a Prize Wheel, offering a variety of different prize options for the capper, including the chance to earn this coveted credit! You can search for Hadavale, Pimedus, and other bouncing munzees at munzee.com/specials.
Additionally, there is a Virtual Deploy Booster that will last for 1 hour (activated for 60 minutes), offering 2x the points on all virtual deploys. There is a rare chance that you will earn a Virtual Deploy Booster Credit if you capture a Magnetus Pouch Creature.
