Gravity Rush 2 Guide: How to Get Dusty Tokens & What They're For

Cats are cool, and so are Dusty Tokens. Here's how to find them and what you can use them for.

Named after Kat’s faithful and stalwart cat-companion, Dusty Tokens are a type of currency in Gravity Rush 2 that allows players to purchase in-game items such as emotes, costumes, and even certain talismans (which are buffs that help the player in myriad ways). Not only will some of these items help players progress through the game faster and more efficiently, but they'll also make you look fly doing it. 

So where can you find Dusty Tokens in Gravity Rush 2? Let’s take a quick look.

How to Get Dusty Tokens in Gravity Rush 2

There are three different ways you can get Dusty Tokens in Gravity Rush 2:

  1. Treasure Hunts
  2. Challenge Missions
  3. Photo Mode 

Depending on your playstyle and gaming acumen, one or another of these methods may prove a faster or slower means of grinding Dusty Tokens (which you will have to do if you want some of the more coveted top-tier rewards).

Dusty Tokens in Treasure Hunts

To access Treasure Hunts (which are online scavenger hunts of sorts), open your map and look for the online event icon. Go to the specified location, and you’ll be presented with a picture clue. This clue is supposed to help you find the treasure chest that’s hidden somewhere in the area (but depending on the picture taker's eye for detail, these can be hit or miss).

Find the area shown in the clue, and you’ll find the treasure chest, netting you three Dusty Tokens. You’ll then be prompted to take a picture of your own to help other players find the same chest. If another player successfully uses your picture to find the chest, you’ll be rewarded with another handful of Dusty Tokens.

You can also access active Treasure Hunts by pausing the game and opening the “Announcements” tab in the main menu. There, all of the active Treasure Hunts should be listed. Click the one in which you want to participate, and you’ll be automatically transported there.

Dusty Tokens in Challenge Missions

To access Challenge Missions, open your map and find the green cluster-of-circles icon in the game world. These challenges pit you against other players in Gravity Rush 2's world, where you’ll be tasked with completing certain objectives within a particular timeframe.

Once completed, you’ll have the opportunity to upload your results to GR2’s servers, where other players can challenge your time.

If other players cannot best your record, you’ll be rewarded with Dusty Tokens each time. That said, it’s best to get the fastest times you possibly can for each Challenge Mission if you plan to go this route for Dusty Tokens.

Dusty Tokens in Photo Mode

The third and final way you can obtain Dusty Tokens is by using GR2’s photo mode. To access this mode, press up on the Dualshock 4’s D-pad. Once in photo mode, you can take pictures of anything you like. Upload these pictures to Gravity Rush 2’s servers like so:

  1. Press the bottom right corner of the Dualshock’s touchpad.
  2. Select a picture from your picture roll by pressing X.
  3. Press the OPTIONS button.
  4. Select yes from the prompt. 

Once you’ve done this, your picture will be stored on GR2’s public servers and available for any players to review. If your photo gets a good review, then you’ll get a small handful of Dusty Tokens for your efforts.
