Xbox 1.0 Walkthrough: G-Coin & Crate System

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,


As we mentioned in our Xbox 1.0 Announcement, we will be introducing a new in-game currency system to purchase cosmetics on 1.0 launch day, September 4. This currency is called G-Coin, and we’ll go over how it works below.


G-Coin is the hard currency that will coexist with BP, which is the soft currency that’s currently in the game. G-Coin is purchased with real money, while BP can be earned by playing the game. With 1.0 launch G-Coin can be purchased in the Microsoft Store and in the in-game store.




With G-Coin, you will be able to directly buy cosmetics such as skin sets and parachute skins, as well as other items such as:

  • Event Pass: Sanhok
  • Skin sets made up of items that can be obtained from crates
  • Skin sets that can be unlocked from Event Pass: Sanhok
  • Skin sets exclusive to G-Coin




On the other hand, crates cannot be purchased with G-Coin and will only be sold for BP.


After looking at feedback on crates from the Game Preview phase, we’ve made a few changes:

  • You will now be able to choose which crate you want to buy.
  • We’ve made a few adjustments to the probability of getting certain items in the crates.
  • You will be able to see a preview of what is inside each crate.
  • Crate prices will not increase with each purchase and each type of crate will have a fixed price. 
  • There will be no locked crates - You can’t buy keys to open crates, because they have no locks on them.

We’ll also be adding a few new crates to the overall system, As of September 4, there will be a total of five Crates available to purchase with BP:

  • Wanderer
  • Survivor
  • Biker
  • Western Military
  • Raider


And last but not least… Weapon skins are officially coming! Weapon skins will be available through the Raider Crate. We will have other ways to purchase weapon skins in the future as well.

G-Coin was developed specifically with Xbox One in mind. We developed this currency system as a way to adapt to the needs of the Xbox ecosystem and the absence of a Marketplace. As PUBG’s economy is still relatively new on the Xbox platform, we had more flexibility to make changes and implement community feedback.

We hope you enjoy testing out the new G-Coin and Crate System! Please be sure to leave us your feedback on our channels so that we can continuously improve upon the system in the future!
