Boom Beach: Frontlines is a new free-to-play mobile game based on Supercell's incredibly popular Boom Beach game. It will take a leap and redefine the team shooter genre by expanding the usual 5v5 format to a whopping 9v9. There will be much to reminisce about from its predecessor such as the characters, designs, and even map layouts.

However, Boom Beach: Frontlines will introduce new in-game currencies that greatly differ from the natural-resource-based currencies found in Boom Beach. These currencies can be slightly difficult to navigate as the game is a new release and there is still much to learn. So let's take a look at these new currencies and what they can do!
