This guide will explain how to farm resources quickly in the Marvel's Avengers game. Read on to learn what resources are used for, as well as the best place to get them to upgrade your equipment!

What Do Resources Do?

Upgrade Equipment

Resources allow you to upgrade equipment that are uncommon or higher. It increases their power, unlocks new perks, and even increases attributes. Depending on the type of equipment you want to upgrade, you'll need a different type of resource.

Purchase New Items

In addition to just upgrading gear, Fragments are a type of resource which allow you to buy new items from a vendor.

Each Resource Has a Different Purpose

To upgrade equipment, you will need to have the correct type of resource. The table below shows what each resource is used for.

Do note that gear with higher rarity rating sometimes require a combination of different resources.

Common Resources

Resource Used For
Fragments Purchasing Items from Vendors
Upgrade Module Upgrading High-Power Gear

Resource Used For
Nanite Upgrading Melee Gear
Nanotube Upgrading Ranged Gear

Plasma Upgrading Heroic Gear

Exotic Resources

Uru Upgrading Minor Artifacts

How to Get Resources

Resources can be obtained in any of the following ways.

Find in Resource Crates and Chests

All over the different levels, you can find chests and crates. Crates are usually easy to find and break but contain fewer resources compared to chests, which sometimes has a small puzzle to solve before being able to access it.

Dropped By Enemies

Some enemies drop resources upon defeat. Be sure to keep an eye out for glowing drops and pick them up!

Note that you can even boost the chance of this by equipping Minor Artifacts with the perk Eagle-Eyed.

Dismantle Old Gear

You can dismantle old gear in the Gear screen by putting your cursor over it and holding △. This will give you resources that you can use.

Any time you receive superior gear (with a higher power level, better perks, and higher rarity, etc.), you should dismantle your old parts to get more resources!

Receive as a Faction Assignment Reward

Faction Assignments are missions recieved from Faction Coordinators found in the Helicarrier and Ant Hill. They give rewards in the form of resources as well as Faction EXP.

Unlock Through Hero Challenge Cards

Hero Challenge Cards are a series of rewards you get the more you play a hero. The rewards vary per level, but resources are one of the possible rewards.

Buy Rare Resources Using Fragments

Fragments are the most common resource found in-game, and it can be traded in for the rarer resources like Plasma and Uru if ever you find yourself with too much of the former and too little of the latter.

Best Missions To Farm Resources

[Note: Our team is still looking into the best methods for farming resources.]

The best missions to farm resources are the longer missions with more chests.

Vault Missions

Vault Missions are the best place to farm for resources because of the sheer amount of chests you find in them. You can even find DNA Chests in them that give you a better chance of receiving better resources!

Iconic Missions

Iconic Missions are the next best place to look for resources as they're also pretty long, hence more likely to have more chests and resource canisters.

Threat Sectors

Stark Realities

Threat Sectors are the game's basic War Zones, and they usually have three chests or more, along with a handful of resource canisters. Make sure to look for them!
