Everything you need to know about the Royale, Black Market & Supply Drops
The War Robots Guide Team has put together the War Robots Royale, Black Market & Supply Drops Guide to help you maximize your gameplay.
With all the new features in War Robots, how can a pilot maximize his daily (and event) income of currencies, weapons and bots? We break all this down in our War Robots Guide to Royale, Black Market & Supply Drops.
War Robots Royale
War Robots Royale has become a daily fixture in the current War Robots meta. Every day, a new weapon or bot becomes available for purchase at an increased rate for
Gold (Au), War Robots Royale Tokens along with prizes for each box opened. This system is, for lack of a better term, “highly dialed in,” meaning that the chance you’ll open up either the Grand Prize (either the weapon/bot/max components) before the last box is virtually slim to none. The game begins by excluding three prizes of your choosing (basically the lowest prizes of Silver, Black Market Tokens, basic weapons or low number of Components), then opening one free box before starting to spend increasing Tokens on each additional box. An effective strategy here to not waste your hard-earned Tokens are to open just a few boxes before the prices get too high – or – save up and spend them all on the one piece of gear you really want/need. If you get lucky, great, if not, the reward is still worth the small amount of Tokens for the chance at winning big. As you’ll know, I personally got lucky with a 2,500 Au win on my free box. This has only happened once. These photos show the typical spending of an enormous amount of Tokens and not getting the Grand prizes.
Should you win early, you can always renew the War Robots Royale and play again for another 75,000 Tokens. Again, this game is “highly dialed in,” so spend big at your own risk!
The Black Market is a rewards system that was unveiled in mid-2017 and available at first only during events. Now that it has become a mainstay of the game (level 5 and higher), we can break it down as another bonus system in the game. Black Market consists of three chests – Bronze, Silver and Gold – which can be opened for 10, 100 and 1,000 Keys respectively. The Bronze chests can be opened by watching 15- to 30-second ads as well, a popular option amongst players. The odds of winning anything other than nominal Components for premium goods, small amounts of Silver and Gold, and basic weapons are very small. These rewards increase with each tier of chest and when a progress bar at the top fills up, you can open a Superchest which usually contains great rewards. The Black Market refreshes every 4 weeks. Unused Keys will be exchanged for the highest potential chests.
Check out our Currencies Guide to learn how to gain more Keys. What you do not want to do in the Black Market is drop too much money or expect anything other than basic prizes. Even in the Gold Chests, the odds of winning anything substantial to high-level players is extremely small.

Supply Drops are the latest addition to the War Robots meta, intended to give pilots a new way to earn Silver (Ag) & Black Market Keys. That’s it, as of the 3.9 Update. In the past, Supply Lines were a way to earn premium content (Kumiho, Inquisitor). Though its been downgraded in a significant way, those looking to open chests in the Black Market will be in luck as serious payouts in the form of keys are now the primary function of this features. And of course, the higher the league you’re in, the better the Supply Drop payout is. They deliver every 3 hours.
And there you have it, the War Robots Guide to Royale, Black Market & Supply Drops. As always, leave your comments below and let us know what you think in regards to Pixonic’s latest daily rollouts. Cheers!
