Boxes are the main reward in Beatstar. There are 2 ways of getting record boxes:
- Through the Journey by gathering stars.
- From the box slots in the home screen by gathering beatcoins.
From the Journey:
You will find different types of boxes available to win through the Journey. These include standard boxes, genre boxes, and difficulty boxes. Gather enough stars by playing songs or venue events to reach one of the box rewards.
These boxes don't have a timer to open and can be claimed at any time.
This box awards you a random song from the pool of available ones from the set you have unlocked.
This box awards you a random Hard song. Find the songs you have available to win in the "available in boxes" section in the collection.
This box awards you a random Extreme song. Find the songs you have available to win in the "available in boxes" section in the collection.
These boxes award you a random song of the music genre specified on the box. Find the songs you have available to win in the "available in boxes" section in the collection.
What if I have unlocked everything?
If you don't have any more songs in the "available in boxes" section in the collection, simply collect enough stars to get to the next Venue and unlock access to more songs. When you reach the new venue, the "available in boxes" section will reappear with a list of the new songs available to win from the box rewards you unlocked in the Journey.
If you have unlocked all the songs in the game but still have Journey boxes left to claim, you'll be able to claim them once new songs are added.
From the Box slots:
Gather beatcoins by playing songs to fill the box slots! You may receive one of 3 options:
- Venue Box
- Wishlist Box
- Card Case
You'll receive one of these every now and then. It awards one of the songs of the venue you're currently on.
You will receive a wishlist box every now and then.
To open this box you have to first like 6 locked songs in your song collection. Opening the box awards you one of them at random.
When you have less than 6 songs available to unlock, the box requirements will adapt to the number of songs you have left.
Please note the box will not unlock unless the required amount of songs are liked.
The cases contain 3 types of drops:
Small or large random card drop
Small or large card drop with two different card types. Take your pick between the two!
Lucky drop! Claim one random song.
The Genre and Difficulty Cards collected are added to individual bars that, once filled, award you a Record Box with a song of that genre or difficulty!
Star Cards are rarer and appear at random in your cases. These cards give you... you guessed it, stars! They're very handy to speed up your progress in the Journey.
Access your card balances through the boxes button at the bottom of the song collection.
The number of cards necessary to unlock a genre or difficulty box gets higher the more you unlock (max 15 cards).
How long do they take to open?
If all your slots are filled, you need to unlock a box /case in order to keep earning Beatcoins. If you decide to play anyway, you will not be able to keep the Beatcoins.
The cooldown on the boxes/cases can be skipped with gems, however, this is completely optional. Remember to claim your free daily gems in the shop!
What if I have unlocked everything?
If you have unlocked all the songs in the collection, you will only receive Card Cases with stars.
If you have unlocked all the songs AND have reached the end of the Journey, you'll start receiving rewards again once we add new songs and venues.
Why am I not receiving beatcoins?
You will stop receiving beatcoins when you have received all the songs you have unlocked access to. An easy way to confirm this is if you no longer have an "available in boxes" section in your collection.
To unlock access to more songs, collect enough stars to get to the next Venue in the Journey!
