Experience points are needed for a player to increase their pilot level. After each battle you are awarded a certain amount of experience points depending on certain parameters used by the game:
- Number of robots destroyed
- Amount of damage dealt
- Number of beacons captured
- Amount of critical hits scored
As you earn experience points the "blue" Bar to the right of your current pilot level will fill towards the right. Upon filling the bar you will Level up to the next level and be awarded 50 gold and 50,000 silver. Currently the maximum level a player can reach is level 30.
Buying Premium grants you 50% more experience points and silver for each game.
Unlocking Robots & Weapons
It is important to score as many experience points as possible per battle to reach higher pilot levels and unlock new robots and equipment. All robots and equipment in the game have a required pilot level to be reached in order to become purchasable.
Actively engaging in battle and capturing beacons will dramatically increase the amount of experience, gold and silver earned when compared to avoiding combat and "camping" (staying near the spawn point) which allows you to fire from safety, but will not earn you many experience points, gold and silver.
Also, don't forget that whatever your level, in-battle experience against various enemy robots and setups is equally useful.
