Marvel Snap Upgrade Tiers Explained: Frame Break, 3D, Animated, and More

Overall, you will be able to upgrade your cards into six different tiers: Uncommon, Rare, Epic, Legendary, Ultra, and Infinity by using their respective boosters. With that said, upgrading a card to Uncommon will allow them to break the frame while upgrading them to Rare and Epic will apply 3-D effects to the card and animate them respectively. Upgrading a card to Legendary will increase the card’s image quality by giving it a shiny logo. Last but not least, upgrading your card to Ultra will give it an animated frame, while turning it into Legendary will allow you to create copies of the said card with new cosmetic effects.

But that’s not the main reason why leveling up your cards is crucial in Marvel Snap, as you will receive a certain amount of collection level points for each tier upgrade, which will then allow you to gain levels and unlock new Collection tiers — many of which will reward you with new cards. Upgrading your cards will also cost Credits, which can also be acquired by using gold. With that said, don’t forget to check out all the ways in which you can get Gold in Marvel Snap.
