An overall guide to crates, items and some trading!

Crates

Each day you can get up to 3 crates and an additional crate after finishing and claiming your daily task.

There are 4 different crates each containing items for one equip slot

They have 5 different possible predominant rarities and are as follows

  • Common
  • Uncommon
  • Rare
  • Extraordinary
  • Legendary

On top of this there are some possible other rarity effects which are

  • Color
  • YIKE
  • Shiny

Crate 1 Contains Haircuts and these have a couple unique colors only available for hair: Blond and Brown

The contents of this crate are generally fetch the lowest prices but the more unique hair colors fetch the high values; Red, Blue, Green.

Some of these hairstyles are especially not worth as much due to their compatibility with hats.

The most useable hairstyle for meshing well with hats is Baldo as it removes almost all of your hair except for a small strand that is almost unnoticeable.

Crate 2 contains hats as well as the unique rarer trait of YIKE

Some of these hats are just items that sit on your head while others fit a lot more nicely on your characters head.

Crate 3 contains all the facial equipable items.

these range from masks to a clown nose, there’s a lot of unique possibilities with these items

Crate 4 contains footwear.

These are all items that cover most of your foot except for the sandals (not the socks with sandals) those still show your feet 😉

Items

Items come in a few predominant rarities;

  • Common
  • Uncommon
  • Rare
  • Extraordinary
  • Legendary

On top of this there are rarities for the colors that an item can have as well

  • Common
  • Uncommon
  • Rare
  • Legendary

The rarities for the colors are

  • Common
    • Gray
    • Light Blue
    • Creme(Hair Exempt)
    • Blond(Hair only)
    • Brown(Hair only)
  • Uncommon
    • Green
    • Blue
    • Red
  • Rare
    • Orange
    • Pink
    • Black
  • Legendary
    • Gold

These items also have a rarity number that they are assigned based on their color and rarity.

each rarity has a “weight” and shininess and branding can also add “weight”

Common – 1

Uncommon – 2

Rare – 3

Extraordinary – 4

Legendary – 6

YIKE – 5

Shiny – It has a range of 5-14 for each respective grade of shininess

0.1 shiny = 5

1.0 shiny = 14

The item you have will always have a minimum of 2 rarity as they have both their predominant rarity and their color rarity values combined.

Ex. A Rare hat with Blue coloring would be a 5 rarity as it has values of 3 and 2 combined to 5.

These rarity values are indicative of exactly how rare each item is comparatively.

The exact calculations of drop rarity aren’t public but it can be assumed through the steam market the relative rarities

Rarities

Common – 80%*

Uncommon – 16.5%*

Rare – 2.3%*

Extraordinary – 1%*

Legendary – 0.2%*

Colors

Common – 78%*

Uncommon – 17%*

Rare – 4%*

Legendary 1%*

*Estimated from steam market listings*

My estimates are that it’s another 0.2% chance to get YIKE on top of whatever item you get if its available, and then another 0.04% chance for a shiny*

*Based off of analysis of the market*

OPINION BASED INFORMATION BELOW THIS POINT

————————————————————————–

The Yellow Jeff hair with Lasers(effect) on the market was a mistake that a beta tester made, My assumption is that Dani is trying to add effects to items (like tf2 unusuals) in an upcoming crate (potentially a creator crate)

My assumption is the next crate to be released is a creator crate putting out some of the items you see in the cosmetics update page that aren’t currently available as well as some others

The biggest reason for assuming there’s going to be another crate is that we have an “other” slot in our inventory for what i could assume would be a body equip slot i.e. the cloak jumpsuit seen in the update picture or maybe special numbered jackets(speculation as well)

Trading and Collecting

This entire section is going to be actively updated like the others but a lot more frequently as the prices and market trends are so chaotic, be sure to favorite this and subscribe to stay updated.

Shiny, Golden, and YIKE items are all very sought after right now but the market is too volatile to really hinge a secure pricing format for them.

My personal MINIMUM value aka a good buylist price for each type of item is:

Shiny – $10

Golden – $0.5

YIKE – $1

Some other effects are if they have a more rare color for YIKE and Shiny as a Shiny Gray or Creme versus a shiny Red or even Pink, the Rarer Colors always look better as they’re naturally more bright.

Golden value inflation is excluded for a few items as they’re too small or too unnoticeable. Sandals, Socks with Sandals, Headband, Flushed, Most of the Facial Hair.

This can also apply to most of these items in Shiny as well.

SHINY ANALYSIS

Certain shiny colors look better just raw facts, pink green and red all “pop” way better than any other color. certain colors I haven’t seen in game (black, blue, and light blue)

In my opinion the brightest and best color in shiny is pink from my own opinion but I have a few items you can compare.

The Creme in game is EXTREMELY dull and hard to notice especially as a .5 on the feet.

The orange being the “highest” shiny grade should be the brightest but I’ve seen in game that the green just “pops” more than orange.

The pink is obviously brighter even though it’s only a .5 grade, maybe it’s because it’s larger but in game it “pops” more than any other color.
