The Division 2 E-Credits | How to earn money fast

The Division 2 E-Credits are the game’s main form of currency, used to purchase a wide variety of items throughout your adventure, so it’s important to know how to earn money fast. Running out of E-Credits when a new weapon upgrade is available, or when you need those last few crafting materials, can be a real downer. Avoid situations like that by getting money quickly and knowing the answer to “What should I spend E-Credits on?” Here’s what you need to know about earning The Division 2 E-Credits.

What are E-Credits in The Division 2?

I’ll admit that I myself wasn’t exactly sure what E-Credits were when first booting up the game. Seeing the currency in the Ubisoft Club Reward screen had me scratching my head, wondering whether it was a premium currency for microtransaction loot boxes, or if it was just the basic in-game money. It turns out that it’s the latter!

The Division 2 E-Credits are the currency used for most transactions, viewable in the Character screen beneath Armor, Health, and Skill Power.

Should I buy the 400 E-Credits Ubisoft Club Reward?

The Division 2 400 E-Credits Ubisoft Club Reward may be tempting at first, especially if you don’t know what the currency is. However, unless you have an enormous supply of Club Units, I’d avoid spending 20 of them for a mere 400 E-Credits.

It won’t take you long at all to make 400 E-Credits by just playing through the campaign. Sure, that immediate boost may give you a nice low-level weapon, but that will only last a mission or two before it turns obsolete.

The obvious way to earn money in The Division 2 is to sell unwanted loot to Vendors. If you don’t want to donate items to Projects, or deconstruct them for crafting materials, you can simply head to a Vendor at the Base of Operations or at a Settlement.

However, in order to earn money fast in The Division 2, I’d recommend trying out the Dark Zones. By completing Rogue actions, I managed to enjoy a long stream of 70 E-Credits rewards, as seen in the screenshot above.
