Important Update: Crowns, Keys, & Airdrop Tickets

Changes are coming on September 20. Get all the information here!

With the major game update rolling out on September 20, 2016, there are some important changes coming to three current in-game items: Daybreak Cash, Crate Keys, and Airdrop Tickets. Some of these changes will require you to take some action on your account, so please read this carefully!


Daybreak Cash will no longer be used in H1Z1: King of the Kill after the game update on September 20. Instead, the new currency will be called Crowns. Crowns are a unique currency, available and usable only in H1Z1: King of the Kill. With Crowns, you will be able to purchase crates and bundles as you did previously with Daybreak Cash

Beginning on September 20, you will have the option to convert all or some of your existing Daybreak Cash into Crowns. This is a one-to-one conversion: 1 Daybreak Cash = 1 Crown. This conversion is only one way; once you convert your DBC into Crowns, you cannot convert Crowns back to DBC. This conversion opportunity will only be available for a limited time. You will be able to convert your Daybreak Cash into Crowns from September 20 through January 24, 2017.

Daybreak Cash is still usable in other Daybreak games, including H1Z1: Just Survive. Crowns can only be used in H1Z1: King of the Kill.


As of September 20, crate keys will be removed from H1Z1: King of the Kill. With the introduction of the new UI, there will be an entirely new crate opening experience. Since keys are being removed from the game, all keys currently in player inventories will be converted to standard unlocked Predator crates. If you would like to use your key to open a different crate, you will need to do that before the game update.

You will still need to use Crowns to open locked crates, and you can also use Crowns to purchase unlocked crates, after keys are removed.


A new way to deal with duplicate skins that will be introduced on September 20 is to turn them into Scrap. Scrap is a resource that you will receive when you break down items in your inventory. You can then use your scrap to get a new item from The Scrapyard.

Since Airdrop Tickets are no longer being used in King of the Kill, on September 20, each airdrop ticket in your inventory will be automatically converted to 100 Scrap.
