Making Money Fast in Level Zero: Extraction

Making money in Level Zero: Extraction is difficult if you don’t know what items to get and where you can get them. Throughout my experience with the game, I found a couple of things you can do to gather money in a few runs, so get ready to learn them.

Complete Contracts

Completing contracts is one of the easiest ways to make money in Level Zero: Extraction. Each trader has two missions available for a limited time. Some of them are easy to complete, so you shouldn’t have a hard time leveling the traders up in a few hours.

Level Zero: Extraction gives you plenty of information to guide you to the place you must go to gather items and complete missions. After exploring the map a couple of times, you’ll recognize high-traffic areas and know where to look for specific items.

Besides rewarding you with money, completing contracts will level up traders, unlocking new items for you to buy or trade in your next run.

Loot Enemy Players

In Level Zero: Extraction, you’ll find enemy players looking for better loot and completing missions like you. If you’re lucky, you will find a player or two at the end of their raid searching for an extract point to get out of the match while carrying valuable items and better weapons. Engaging them may be risky, but you could end the raid with better loot than you started.

Engaging enemy players while they fight the alien or a third group is a great strategy for taking advantage of the chaos and defeating players. Paying attention to the game’s audio will pay off, as players’ footsteps will give away their location.

Make sure you turn off your flashlight and check for other players before you loot fallen enemies, as others may be on their way after hearing gunshots. The last thing you want is to be surprised by someone while looting.

Loot the Airdrop

In Level Zero: Extraction, there’s an airdrop marked on the map with valuable items. Players can find assault rifles, grenades, healing items, resources to trade with vendors, and much more. Looting the airdrop is not easy. All players can see where it lands on the map, so you must plan an escape route and loot fast.

Some players may try to hide close to the crate to surprise you while you loot. Secure the site before you open the crate so no one gets the drop on you.

Retrieve the Flashdrive

When looking at your map, you’ll find a laptop icon, usually across from where you spawned. Getting to the laptop and retrieving the data will pay you well, as the flash drive is worth $21,000. To retrieve the flash drive, players must find the laptop and wait until the data is loaded into the flash drive.

Players must wait until the process finishes, putting them at risk as aliens and enemy players can ambush them while they wait. With $21,000, you can buy healing items, ammo, flares, and much more to start your next match with enough loot to take risks and face more enemies.

The most difficult thing about retrieving the flash drive is waiting until the process ends. Carry plenty of ammo and healing items when doing this task, as enemy players will try to kill you to take the flash drive.
