Our guide will explain what are Pool cards and how to unlock them in Marvel Snap, including a complete list of all Pool cards below.

How to Unlock Pool Cards

There are three Collection Levels in Marvel Snap simply titled Pool 1, Pool 2, and Pool 3. Each Pool can be unlocked by upgarding your cards in the following way:

  1. Complete a tutorial, unlocking starter cards.
  2. Play with a starter deck, earning boosters.
  3. Use boosters to upgrade cards.
  4. The more cards you upgrade, the higher Collection Level you unlock.

Boosters are points that are calculated after each match-up, depending on the number of your turns. If you finished with five turns, you get 5 boosters, if you finished with six turns, then you get 6 boosters, and so on.

Cards can be upgraded a number of times with the following results:

  • Common to Uncommon: 5 boosters (or 25 credits) = Collection Level +1
  • Uncommon to Rare: 10 boosters (or 100 credits) = Collection Level +2
  • Rare to Epic: 20 boosters (or 200 credits) = Collection Level +4
  • Epic to Legendary: 30 boosters (or 300 credits) = Collection Level +6
  • Legendary to Ultra: 40 boosters (or 400 credits) = Collection Level +8
  • Ultra to Infinity: 50 boosters (or 500 credits) = Collection Level +10

In order to upgrade any given card, you need to do the following:

  1. Go to your cards collection.
  2. Tap on any card with green upward arrows.
  3. Tap on the “Upgrade” button (bottom right).
  4. Confirm by pressing “Upgrade“.
  5. Go to “Collection Level” menu.
  6. Claim any new unlocked cards by pressing “Claim!“.
  7. Rinse and repeat to unlock more cards.

Credits can be purchased with Gold (real money) in the in-game shop, or earned by completing the following challenges:

  • Playing matches and winning.
  • Increasing Collection Level.
  • Earning ranked rewards.
  • Season Pass rewards.
  • Completing weekly challenges.
  • Claiming log-in rewards.

Note that upgraded cards simply change their appearance, and there are no new abilities added, but they help you upgrade your overall Collection Level which always begins at 1-14. From there you need to unlock the rest:

  • Pool 1 unlocks at Collection Level 18-214.
  • Pool 2 unlocks at Collection Level 222-450.
  • Pool 3 unlocks at Collection Level 462-?.

Pool 3 is still updating, and new cards are added regularly. New cards unlock randomly within each Pool, and you never know which one you get.

Once you reach the maximum number of Collection Level points, the next Pool of cards unlocks automatically.
