Halo 5: Guardians developer 343 Industries has penned a new blog post focusing on the game’s microtransactions, their real-world cost, and just how much we can expect to earn in-game.

Requisition packs are available in three forms: Bronze, Silver, and Gold. The Bronze pack includes a Common, single-use REQ item, and will likely unlock a new permanent REQ if you don’t have it already unlocked. The Silver pack includes Common to Rare REQ items along with two permanent REQ unlocks, if you don’t have them already.

As for Gold, it will come with a large number of REQs from Uncommon to Legendary, with two guaranteed permanent REQ, if you don’t already own them.

These packs can be bought either with in-game cash called REQ Points, or with real-world money. Bronze packs are the cheapest at 1250RP, Silver packs cost 5000RP or $2, while Gold packs will run you 10000RP or $3.

343 says it expects players to earn 2000RP per Warzone game on average. You can also earn these REQ packs by increasing your Spartan Rank, completing Commendations, or through other promotional codes.

The Warzone REQ Bundle, which comes with the game’s limited and collector’s edition, gives players access to 14 Premium packs, two each week for seven weeks. The bundle will be available separately for $25.

In addition, anyone buying the game will receive a starting REQ bundle that includes 54 REQ cards and 7500 REQ Points.

Halo 5: Guardians is out October 27 on Xbox One.
