Boosts guide


We recently posted a question about what boosts people would like to see, and we had at least half a dozen suggestions of things there was already a boost for, so we're thinking... People may not know what's out there!

So, we've decided to do a categorised list of all the boosts and bonuses we get in the game to use!

We'll split them up by what you can use them on and what they do, so hopefully you'll be able to find what you need nice and simply! We're just covering things you can craft or trade for, the market holds boosts but is fairly self explanatory. (To find a specific boost, use Control-F on your keyboard)

We've also (to save space) made a single external post with all the crafting in so click the link for each boost to be taken there.

[PLEASE NOTE: There is also a Smoked Buffalo Ribs boost which gives Double Drops and Double XP on everything (that can be boosted).  It's a frequent reward, reward for completing the Security Badge and can be crafted in the Smokehouse, possible drop from Boost Express Crate and  Express Crate].
