Credits are the most commonly used currency in the Asphalt series, replacing the Cash used in Asphalt 7: Heat and being replaced by Dollars ($) in Asphalt Street Storm Racing.

Asphalt 8: Airborne

Credits reward

The only currency in the game until the inclusion of Tokens with the 2014 Winter update, Credits are a fundamental element of the game, being the primary way to purchase in-game objects without having to spend real money, since Tokens are much harder to obtain. Credits can be won by finishing races, winning Time-Limited Events, completing vehicle collections or purchasing credit packs. Credits earned at the end of races can also be increased by the Double Credits booster, completing Bonus Star Requirements and the Daily Bonus multiplier.

Items bought with Credits

  • A majority of the cars in the game are purchasable with credits. As of the Elite Cars Update, several have the option of paying with either currency.
  • The Decals Update also introduced customizable decals you can buy for cars (hence the name), many of which can be purchased with credits.
  • The Super Racer Kit Box is the only Pro Box that is purchasable with credits.
  • The Upgrades and Pro Kits for each vehicle are purchasable with credits. As of the Lunar New Year Update, several of the subsequent cars have the option of paying with either currency for MAX Upgrades.
  • As of June 26th, 2017, a fourth Exclusive Deal is purchasable using credits.

Credit Packs

Credit Packs

Credit packs are an in-app purchase that provides the player a set amount of credits in exchange for real money. While the price for a pack increases for a bigger payout, the larger packs are overall of more value as the player gains a larger amount for a reduced money → credits cost ratio. With the Rio de Janeiro Update, each credit pack will also award the player with VIP points for the VIP system. [1]

  1. Rookie Credit Pack: A8Credits 30,000 & 200 VIP points
  2. Driver Credit Pack: A8Credits 80,000 & 500 VIP points
  3. Pilot Credit Pack: A8Credits 175,000 & 1,000 VIP points
  4. Pro Credit Pack: A8Credits 420,000 & 2,000 VIP points
  5. Champion Credit Pack: A8Credits 1,200,000 & 5,000 VIP points
  6. Master Credit Pack: A8Credits 3,000,000 & 10,000 VIP points

Transferability with Tokens

There is no official conversion rate between credits and tokens in Asphalt 8: Airborne. It is thus unknown what the relationship between tokens and credits are. However, it can be estimated that a token is worth A8Credits 138 on average and at the most, A8Credits 252. This estimate is extremely rough as the amount of in-game tokens received for an equivalent value of credits depends largely on what you purchased.

In general, the lower the credit/token ratio of the car price is, the more economical it would be to purchase the car with credit instead of token, and vise versa. However, due to the elusiveness and relatively high availability of the token to most player, it is usually a better choice to purchase item with credit and save the tokens for other use.

Obtaining Credits

While every race in the game (except for Quick Solo Race and failed Flawless races) has a Credits payout, the fastest method of earning credits is with Season 9: Beyond or Car Mastery Challenge #14/#15 events, preferably on short tracks such as San Diego Harbor, Alps, Dubai, Rio de Janeiro, and some layouts of The Great Wall. Listed below are the currently most proficient cars at Credits-grinding at Challenge 15.

While racing with boosters (Nitro Starter & Tuning Kit) will reduce the race duration, it is more detrimental than going un-boosted as the additional cost for 1 hour of usage will outweigh the increased profit for an overall loss in credit accumulation (assuming that the boosters were not purchased through Exclusive Deals or earned via Time Limited Events).[2] Despite the 2015 GTA Spano, Weber Faster One, GT by CITROEN, and McLaren MP4-31 having similar or superior profitability than the cars mentioned above, their limited availability and high costs prevent them from being usable alternatives to most players. The former car is even more restrictive as it is not only an Elite Car with tune-ups for it taking 2 hours and 30 minutes to complete, but it is also unavailable until the player reaches VIP Level 15 (not recommended).

As previously mentioned, completing certain Collections in the game will award the player with a credit reward. Listed below are all of the collections with a credit reward.
