How do I get money? What is the money system in AVA?
After every match, depending on how long you were alive, you gain a certain amount of Supply Points. These Supply Points add up to fill a bar under your EXP bar. Once you get 100% supply bar (20,000 supply points) it resets to 0 and you get a supply case. This supply case (automatically opened) will give you 5,000 euros and will give an M67 grenade or Supply armor randomly.
How do I get money fast?
Play the game more! In AVA, there is no get-rich-quick scheme. For the novice, the best and most consistent way to get money fast is to play more to achieve badges and medals.
How is SP gain or repair cost determined?
Purely by the amount of time played. It is a myth that getting a better score gives more money, or shooting more bullets cost more to repair.
How do I get campaign ribbons?
Play the game more as that specific class. They will naturally accumulate.
How do I get exp fast?
Annihilation and Cross Steal are good exp modes. Avoid playing Demolition, Escort, or [AI] Annihilation.
What are Gcoins?
Gcoins are the currency that you can buy with real money.
What are BP?
Battle Points are given for completing daily tasks. You also get 1 battle point for every Lucky Shot you make. Battle Points can give you a discount at the capsule shop. Instead of paying 3,000 euros, you can buy a capsule for 1,000 euros and 50 BP.
To get BP, you can complete a daily task for +5, +10, +15, or +20 BP respectively. One lucky shot will also give you 1 BP.
What is a Lucky Shot?
A lucky shot is merely bonus exp for a single kill. It is a small random chance that can be improved by wearing lucky shot gear. There is a myth that states that Lucky shots are random 1-hit kills no matter what gun you are using. This is absolutely false, since any rifle or SMG can never 1-hit no matter how much LS gear you're wearing.
What rank do you need to be to buy capsules?
Staff Sgt 3.
What capsules should I buy?
In all honesty, don't buy any caps. They're a disastrous waste of money for those who have little experience with them. If you know what you're doing, go for the Desmodus.

Tips to saving money:
~Never sell anything. If you have a tendency to buy a gun, do badly, and sell it on the same day, you are on a course for bankruptcy. Even if you have a really old gun that you never use anymore since it's so outdated, I encourage you to keep it! I still have my first two primary guns I bought, the P90 and the SG550. While my P90 Harimau and my SG556 clearly replace them, it's a good habit to keep old guns and play with them once in a while.
~Never buy a gun unless you know you will use it for a long time. If you are a Staff Sgt and you can't wait until you reach SFC to get your first M4MK3, just stick with the M4A1 (LaserII + LRB + Protogrip). That gun is actually top tier and was once considered to be an overpowered gun. And plus, staff sgt goes by really fast.
~Never buy a stupid gun. When people QQ about buying a stupid gun like a permanent M16 or a permanent UMP, I sometimes wonder why they failed to utilize the plentiful guides around the forums.
~Never buy or use a gun that requires a TON of mods to work. Such extremely mod-heavy guns include:
-PGM, DSR, WA2000
-K1A1, MP7, Kriss, MP5SD5
If you absolutely use these guns, find creative ways to cope with minimal mods.
~It's best to stick with guns that require few or no mods at all. Such ideal guns include:
-Galil Mar, AKs, AUG A2, Calico, P90, MP5k
-M4, AK, or Famas MK3
-XM8, AK107, R4, CR21
-TPG, SR25, FRF2, AWM
-Capsule guns (???)
~Generally, you should spend no more than 2k euros to mod a gun. If you find yourself spending over 3-4k euros, you're most likely paying more for the mods than to repair the guns. Strangely enough, since capsule guns don't require mods to work well but cost more to repair, they have a good tradeoff between mod cost and repair cost. It's cheaper (repair+modcost) to use a capsule gun than to use a normal gun with 2-3k euros of mods.
~Never buy anything extraneous such as:
-Smoke nades, MK3A2, M67, etc. The supply grenade given with every other supply case is good enough.
-Pistols. if you badly need one, P226 serves as a cheap sidearm for the average pubber. If you are a pro who needs a spamgun for demo, the Glock works almost as well as the Beretta for half the cost. However, it is extremely cost effective to not use pistols.
-Armor. The supply armor given to you + the default helmet is enough. The helmets, armor, gloves, etc. in the shop are really overpriced and can easily make people broke. The cost of using EG08, Large cal, and/or EH08 can sometimes surpass the cost of your own gun.
-Backpack items. This is self explanatory. Yes, don't buy the +1 ammo item, since it weighs heavily on your expenditures.
-Capsules. This is a big source of money outflow. Most people who don't have experience with the capsule shop find themselves losing hundreds of thousands of euros. I'll post a capsule guide sometime later to help with that.
