Type Notes
Boost XP and money earned is severely limited without an active Premium subscription. Premium can only be purchased with G1C.
Cosmetic Many character, weapon and vehicle customisation items can only be purchased with G1C. Some available weapons are reskins of free weapons. The game's customisation of characters and vehicles is severely limited without an active Premium subscription.
Currency G1C (GamersFirst Credits) are a real money purchase and cannot be earned in-game. G1C is used to purchase weapons, vehicles, clothing, account services and a secondary currency called JT (Joker Tickets) from the Armas Marketplace.
Free-to-grind JT (Joker Tickets) are a real money purchase, but can also be earned by completing in-game challenges. JT can be spent in the in-game Joker Store in the Social District to obtain weaponry (leased or permanent[2]), use the legendary weapon lease system or acquire permanent cosmetic gear.
Infinite spend There is no cap on JT purchases.
Loot box G1C can be spent on bundles of Joker Tickets, which are also obtainable through completing in-game challenges. Each 500 JT purchased with G1C have a 1% chance of instantly earning a legendary weapon, bypassing the game's lease system for legendary weapons.[3]
Unlock Unique weapons can be purchased with G1C. Some weapons have identical stats to those available for free. Others have unique properties that cannot be earned ingame.

Middleware Notes
Anti-cheat BattlEye PunkBuster used to protected APB Reloaded.[5] In 2014, FairFight was added on the server side alongside PunkBuster's client protection.[6] With Little Orbit's acquisition of APB Reloaded[7] in 2018, Easy Anti Cheat was added which replaced both PunkBuster and FairFight. Recently Easy Anti Cheat has been replaced with BattlEye.[8][9] update/conversion to 64bit will remove BattlEye again for in favor of EasyAntiCheat shortly.
