Street Fighter 5 Arcade Edition Best Ways To Earn Fight Money Guide

In our previous guide, we explained the fight money system and hence, this guide will show the best ways to get this currency in the game.

The most natural way of doing this is to just level up your characters. The more you use a character, the higher its level will climb. Each time you reach a certain threshold, you will receive 1000 Fight Money. To get XP, you can do the Character Trials or you can watch the hands-off Character Demonstrations. Survival Mode on varying difficulty levels will also award XP. Online Battles too give good XP. Keep a lookout for Special Battles which reward you with huge XP for a single AI battle.

Finish the character story of a single character to earn 200,000 Fight Money. However, they have removed the one-time fight money bonus from Cinematic Story Mode so there really is no reward in playing that mode.

You can also finish missions to get Fight Money. They are found under the challenge part of the main menu and are shown every time you start the game. Sometimes, what you have to do is quite categorical but other times, it can be confusing. Hence, keep your wits and finish missions to earn fight money.

Extra Battle Mode

There is also a new mode called Extra Battle Mode. Some of these missions provide great XP or fight money. The catch is that you have to pay fight money to enter these battles. For example, the fight against Shin Akuma requires you to pay 1000 Fight Money. He is one of the tough ones but taking him down gets you 10,000 XP and a unique title for your online profile. Note that it costs 1000 Fight Money per attempt. You can’t pay once and expect to fight him as many times as you want. Some of these battles require you to beat many opponents over a few days or weeks. They can be long but the rewards in the end are quite handsome too. Finally, here is how much things cost in the game.
