Hey guys, salut mes amis och hallå gubbar, Maxim here. With the new Operation you get a coin, in this video I’ll show you how to upgrade the Hydra Coin. So first of all, you have the Bronze Coin, the Silver Coin, the Gold Coin and the new Diamond Coin (which hasn’t been in any previous operation). You get Bronze when you buy the Operation.

To unlock the other coins you need these Stars. For Silver it’s 5 Stars, for Gold it’s 18 Stars and for Diamond it’s 25 Stars. So, how do you get Stars? The first way is by playing all the Guardian Missions. If you play all the Guardian Missions you will get (in total) 7 Stars. These are the only Guardian Missions you will get, but you can complete them whenever you want as long as the Operation is still active. The second way of getting Stars is by playing Hydra Events. What are Hydra Events? Each week, one of three events are chosen by Valve: Wingman, Weapons Expert, and War Games. This week it’s War Games as you can see here. The first event unlocks 2000 Event XP that you can collect, next event will increase the pool to 4000, next event 6000, next event 8000, and this keeps going on all the way up to 36000. So in total we will get 18 events. Each time you get 2000 Event XP you get a Star, so that’s 18 Stars.

Please note that this has nothing to do with your Profile Rank and playing Matchmaking for example will not give you Event XP, you can only get event XP by playing Hydra Events. And you do that by clicking here. It took me about 45 minutes to get 2000 Event XP so it’s very easy to reach that goal. So, if you want the Diamond coin which is 25 Stars you would need to collect 36000 Event XP which will give you 18 Stars and complete all the guardian missions which will give you 7 Stars. 18 Stars plus the 7 Stars you get from Guardian Missions is 25 Stars.

This also means that the last Star you will ever get from this Operation is in September. So basically, to upgrade the Hydra Coin, complete the Hydra Events for each week and finish all the guardian missions. That was it for this video, I’ll see you guys in the next one, go bananas!.
