How to get a YuGiOh Master Duel secret pack and what they do

We'd like to tell you, but it's a secret

YuGiOh Master Duel secret packs are a solid way to get rare and powerful cards, and they’re easier to get than their name implies.

You’ll need to have a few hundred Gems on hand to get the most from them, but it’s worth the trouble. With a bit of luck, you’ll have a much higher chance of getting the cards you want than you do with normal packs.

What is a secret pack in YuGiOh Master Duel?

Secret packs in Master Duel are more rare than secret. There’s only one way to unlock them at launch, but secret packs offer a more focused selection of cards and a higher chance of obtaining desirable ones.

Every secret pack is built around a specific card, with eight headline cards of higher rarities. You can get a vague idea of the types of cards in each pack by the stats shown on the pack preview screen, though “vague” is key here. The selection still seems fairly random.

What’s slightly less random is the cards you’ll get. Each pack is guaranteed to get you four of the eight featured cards, and you can preview which eight it includes in the gallery under the main image. Pulls cost 100 Gems, and while you might end up with duplicates, you can always feed those to the crafting machine.

How to get secret packs in YuGiOh Master Duel

You have two ways to unlock a secret pack in Master Duel. One is by obtaining a Super Rare or Ultra Rare card. A key appears after you reveal an Ultra Rare or Super Rare card in any pack, including a secret pack itself, and the card overview page tells you which secret pack you’ve unlocked. You can go to it directly from there or find them under the “Secret Pack” tab of the Shop menu.

You can also unlock a secret pack by crafting a UR card, though it seems there may be some limitations on that. Effect, spell, and tuner cards don't appear to unlock secret packs, so spend your crafting points on archetypes instead.

Right now, the easiest way for non-PS Plus players to get several secret packs is spending Gems on the special bundles. These collections of 10 card packs usually have at least one SR card per pack. The downside is they only remain available for 24 hours after you unlock them, so make sure you’ve got a few hundred Gems available before opening one of them.

What is the best secret pack in YuGiOh Master Duel?

The best secret pack really depends on what you're looking for and what card unlocked the pack for you. Every secret pack draws from the same pool of over 6,000 cards, and the featured cards you get tend to complement the base card. For example, you could pull the Arcana Knight Joker or the Arcana Triumph Joker to unlock the pack, and the cards in it would still stay the same.

In short, the archetype itself seemingly matters very little. The point is just trying to build a stronger deck around the specific card, and any secret pack is designed to do exactly that.

YuGiOh Master Duel secret pack list

These are all the secret packs you can unlock and the archetypes they revolve around, which is handy as a sort of indirect guide on how to get a specific pack. If, for example, you want a vampire-themed pack, you can search for "lich" or "vampire" in the deck card list, and craft a UR lich.
