Restoration: go up a set of stairs, through a room, on a desk and there’s a golden chest
The Dark Within, during the Wizard boss fight: through the ceiling in an adjacent room, across the opening you entered in and around through a back corner and, presto, chest.
Forgotten Shores: through a cave with a small waterfall in front of it, chest is behind a big rock.
Forgotten Shores again: facing the broken pier, run down the shoreline underneath the pier until you reach a set of low rocks. Jump up the rocks and find the chest.
During the Devil’s Lair boss fight: go underneath the platform to the right and the chest will be waiting for you.
The Black Market
The Frontier may be rich in resources, but it’s also rich with conflict. As a Pilot, you want to be prepared for anything, and sometimes, standard issue just isn’t enough to get the job done. Sometimes, you need to look elsewhere for an edge. Welcome to the seedy underbelly of the Frontier, Pilot – The Black Market.
The Black Market collects and sells the Frontier’s most sordid items like packs of random Burn Cards and Titan Insignias. Don’t ask where we got them. You don’t want to know.
The Black Market introduces a set of Titan Insignias that are themed as the official insignias of elite units on both the IMC and Militia. Once you unlock them in the Black Market, they will be available with the rest of your Titan Insignias in the Titan Custom Loadout screens.
Burn Card Packs contain a random Burn Cards each focused on a specific theme. They let you choose the type of Burn Cards you like to use. Need an XP boost? Buy the Time Boost Pack. Just need a few cards for the next match? Grab a Standard Pack which can contain any card in the game.
The primary goal of Burn Card packs is to give you more choice in the kinds of Burn Cards you get and to fit different play styles. The Cards you get are random, but you get a set of Cards you know you will enjoy using. Do you like using Ordnance more than Tactical Abilities? Sell the Ability Cards for Credits and buy an Ordnance Pack! Speaking of Credits…
The Black Market’s arrival also introduces a new currency to Titanfall called Credits. Credits are used to buy items in the Black Market like Burn Card Packs and Titan Insignias.
Players are awarded credits for the following:
• Match Victory
• Match Completion
• First Victory of the Day
• Completing Daily Challenges
• Selling Burn Cards
• At level 50, a percentage of the XP you earn will be converted into Credits
These events reward you for playing the game mode objective, finishing matches, and coming back to play every day. Also, discarding unwanted Burn Cards now sells them for Credits.
• The Black Market is available at level 11 and once you’ve opened the Burn Card menu.
• The Black Market is still available after you regenerate, just like Burn Cards.
• If you are at level 50, you will earn a percentage of Credits for the XP you earn every match
We are looking into adding more item types for the Black Market in future updates, but can’t say exactly what they are at this time.
One More Thing
With the introduction of an in-game currency, some may worry that the next step is that we will let players spend real-world money to get an edge in the game. We have stated several times that Titanfall will not have micro-transactions. Fear not, for we plan to keep that promise – NO MICROTRANSACTIONS! The only way to get Credits is by playing the game!

And your Master Chief calls me Friend. How well do you know your friend, human. And what will you call me when you learn the truth of what I have done”
