Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled PS4 PlayStation 4 How to Get Wumpa Coins Guide

What's the best way to get Wumpa Coins in Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled? How do you earn more coins for the Pit Stop? The Wumpa Coin is an in-game currency you'll earn as you play CTR Nitro-Fueled, and you'll need a lot of them if you want to unlock all the goodies found throughout the game. How exactly they work, and how the game determines the amount you receive, seems a bit of a puzzle, however. In this guide, we're going to tell you exactly how to earn Wumpa Coins, and how (and when) to earn the most.

How Wumpa Coins work in Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled

Below, we're going to explain how and when you earn Wumpa Coins in CTR.

What are Wumpa Coins?

As we briefly explained above, Wumpa Coins are an in-game currency. After earning some, you can visit the Pit Stop from the main menu, where you'll find an array of optional cosmetic items and new characters to purchase. This is their only function, but to earn everything, you'll need a lot of them.

How do you gain Wumpa Coins?

You earn Wumpa Coins by playing basically any mode in Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled. After each race, battle, or whatever event you're playing, you'll be awarded a handful of Wumpa Coins. Simple as that.

Can you purchase Wumpa Coins with microtransactions?

Currently, there are no microtransactions or in-game purchases in Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled. You can only get Wumpa Coins by playing the game.

How many Wumpa Coins do you get per race?

Talking specifically about races, the number of Wumpa Coins you receive at the end depends on two factors: which track you're playing, and your finishing position.

The base amount of Wumpa Coins is determined by the track you're racing on. Basically, the longer and more challenging a track is, the more Wumpa Coins you'll get at the end. For example, Electron Avenue will award more Wumpa Coins than Coco Park.

Depending on where you finish, the number of Wumpa Coins will vary. Coming first naturally awards the most, second slightly less, and third slightly less again. Finishing in fourth or below will award the lowest amount of Wumpa Coins.

The exact amounts haven't officially been disclosed, but the bottom line is, you want to finish on the podium, and you want to race on the longer, harder courses to earn the most Wumpa Coins.

What's the fastest way to get Wumpa Coins?

Undoubtedly the fastest way to get Wumpa Coins is to play online.

Every day, you're able to earn five times as many Wumpa Coins as normal for a limited time. This takes effect for your first 30 minutes of online races. Time spent in lobbies, playing offline, or away from the game itself does not factor into this 30 minutes -- the timer only ticks down while you're actually playing online events.

If you want to unlock everything at the Pit Stop in Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled, this is your window of opportunity for some grinding. With some items costing several thousand Wumpa Coins, it will take you a while to get all the items and characters, but taking advantage of your first 30 minutes of online play will get you there much quicker.

What's more, playing on the weekends has bonus effects on Wumpa Coins, too. Every week, between 5:00PM PDT on Thursdays and 4:59PM PDT on Sundays, you'll earn twice as many Wumpa Coins when you play online -- and yes, this stacks on top of the aforementioned 30-minute window. This means that, if you play CTR Nitro-Fueled online during the weekend, you'll earn 10 times as many Wumpa Coins as normal for the first half hour of racing. After that, you'll still be earning two times as many. If it's grinding for Wumpa Coins you want, weekends are definitely the best time to play.
