How to Shelve your GEAR

Energy plays a key role in how users move and earn. Did you know that you could increase the amount of energy you can use per run by shelving your SNEAK or HEADSET? However, remember that at least one SNEAK or HEADSET will always have to remain off of the shelf and available for running. 

Get bonus energy from shelving 

Bonus energy is a finite amount of energy received as a reward for shelving a your SNEAK or HEADSET. The amount of bonus energy received depends on your GEAR's rarity.

You will get energy from your shelved GEAR in your current SNEAK or HEADSET, allowing you to move and earn more. 

Each SNEAK’s or HEADSET's full energy supply is based on the sum of their base attributes. When you shelf GEAR your total available units of energy will be impacted by the base attributes of your current SNEAK or HEADSET and the base attributes on all your shelved SNEAKs or HEADSETs. Any attribute changes and modifications made to your GEAR's attributes, e.g. a stats re-roll, do not impact the calculation of the energy supply. 

How to shelve your SNEAK

Step 3: Click "CONFIRM"

Once GEAR is shelved, it cannot be unshelved, it will now have a permanent home on your shelf, so make sure you want to shelf it before taking any action. Please note that at least one SNEAK or HEADSET must always remain off of the shelf if you want to move and earn. 

The "Shelf" section can be found under the Profile tab. Here, you can access more information and data on your energy. Shelving GEAR can be a great way to access bonus energy, allowing you to move and earn more! 

For example: 

With a sum of 24 vs 20 base attributes- it is better to shelve the one with 20 as its base attributes and run with the SNEAK that has 24 as the base attributes. Why? Because typically higher stats means higher earnings.
