Containers are items which have unknown contents inside them. Upon opening them, players can receive something from a selection of items. The contents vary from supplies to rare paints.
Containers were first seen in the game on November 24, 2017 during "Black Friday" festivities. They were sold in the Shop until 05:00 Moscow time on November 28; and could be found under the «Containers» tab in the Shop. Then, on December 24th, containers were permanently added into the game. Currently, they are priced as follows:
- 1x container: 1.49 USD;
- 3x containers: 4.29 USD;
- 10x containers: 13.99 USD;
- 25x containers: 29.99 USD;
- 50x containers: 54.99 USD;
- 100x containers: 99.99 USD.
These boxes can be opened individually or in batches of five or fifteen at a time. Note that the percentage chances of high tier items does not change if you open the boxes individually or in bunches.
With the server restart on December 28th, new color-coded effects were added to the game when opening containers. The better item you get in the container, the cooler effects you’ll see when it appears. Colors for the effects will also depend on rarity, as follows:
- White — common items (small sets of bonuses);
- Green — uncommon items (medium sets of bonuses);
- Blue — rare items (bigger sets of bonuses, paints from the Garage (except premium-only paints));
- Purple — epic items (crystals, very rare legendary paints as well as paints from the Shop and «Frost»/«Golden Star»);
- Gold — legendary items (crystals and animated paints, which were or not available, but now unavailable for purchase).
- Red — extremely rare items (unique skins, a package of a million crystals)
