Futuristic technologies are often to die for in video games due to their superiority and upgrade potential. The same holds in State of Survival, wherein you can obtain Plasma Cores and unlock some powerful upgrades. The problem is, this resource is incredibly scarce for free-to-play players.

How to Get Plasma Core in State of Survival

Thankfully, even if there’s a very time-consuming method, players can still obtain Plasma Cores without spending a single cent. We’ll also discuss how you use the Cores. Keep on reading to find out more.

What Are Plasma Cores?

Plasma Cores are among the rarest resources in State of Survival, especially if you don’t wish to spend money on the game. However, they’re essential if you want to upgrade buildings beyond Level 30. By completing these upgrades on buildings, you can also deploy Tier XI troops, called Plasma Tier.

The buildings you can upgrade with Plasma Cores include:

  • Headquarters

  • Range

  • Garage

  • Hero Precinct

  • Barracks

All five buildings have three additional levels, called the Plasma Levels. Within each Plasma Level are five Sublevels, making the maximum progress of these structures Level 45.

Getting Plasma Cores

The main ways of getting Plasma Cores are:

  • Daily Mission rewards

  • Events

  • Bundles

  • Infected Intel Missions

Before you can obtain Plasma Cores, you have to complete the Reformation state intel. Once you meet this prerequisite, you’ll notice Intel Missions with Plasma Cores as rewards. You can get 12 to 15 of them from a playthrough.

However, you’re not guaranteed to gain Plasma Cores. Brace yourself for a long grind instead. According to calculations, you need a total of 6,600 Cores to get all the buildings to Level 45.

This calculation is also pretty optimistic, as you might get only 12 a day or not at all.

The requirements for reaching max level on each building are as follows:

  • 2640 Plasma Cores for Headquarters
  • 1320 for the Hero Precinct
  • 880 for the other three buildings

Remember that completing your Intel Missions consumes Chief Stamina. Make sure to reserve some for the Plasma Core missions.

State of Survival makes acquiring Plasma Cores a tedious process. You can spend money on quick Plasma Cores in the store too, but it can get expensive.

The best course of action is to be patient and keep grinding. Eventually, you’ll max out your Plasma tiers.

Plasma Core Benefits

The Barracks, Range, and Garage are where you train your troops. Once you unlock Plasma Level, you can train Plasma Troops. These units have boosts in stats such as:

  • Health
  • Attack
  • Defense
  • Lethality

Typically, each Plasma Level increases the stats by one, though it’s not unheard of to gain increases of two points.

Plasma Troops are highly effective in combat, surviving for more extended times and capable of doing damage. With these units, your state will become a force to be reckoned with.

Keep in mind that before you can upgrade the other buildings, your Headquarters must receive Plasma upgrades first. After you upgrade it, the rest of the buildings’ Sublevels will become available. Each Headquarter Sublevel unlocks other structures’ Sublevels.

Other than getting Plasma Troops, there are other advantages to spending Plasma Cores on buildings. Higher Plasma Levels for your Headquarters will reward you with additional marching capacity, and Hero Precinct upgrades increase your troops’ attack.

Once you use your Plasma Cores and level up, the other three buildings will have larger training capacities too.

Cutting-Edge Combat

Plasma Troops have access to Advanced skills once they reach Plasma Level Three. Getting your troops to this coveted tier may take a long time, but these units are game-changers. Getting your daily Plasma Cores will make the process easier.
