    Do you have the necessary components listed in the "Cost" section?

    CS Chris, so I have the necessary resources, i.o.w. 10K to build, but I have only 3/10 critical. Why does that matter, since I did not need to have critical requirements for infantry build?
    Or.is that the catch? I have to spend 'real' coin to get machine gunners?

    Rifleman don't require components to build because they're the most basic unit in the game, but more advanced units do require components.

    Components can be gathered from crates, which drop when you're victorious in combat (specifically in PvP, or in the world map against Outposts and Strongholds). You don't need to spend coins to get them, they're free to obtain when you're victorious in battle, but you can also spend coins to obtain them if you want to. 

    Once you have enough components to meet the required cost, you can build one of those units.

    Hey Chris, I came here with a similar question and got it answered thanks to this post. However now I'm facing a different issue, when attacking infantry outposts I am only collecting common components and redeploy tokens instead of critical components. Is this a glitch of some kind? Or can we spend these tokens somehow to receive critical components? If not, how are we supposed to obtain a specific class of critical components that we need? when PvP rewards randomly and specific strongholds only appear at certain times

    It's still possible to get Critical Components from outposts but we have had to implement a few changes to make gaining those components more difficult. What we've found up to this point is that it was way too easy to get any necessary components the player wanted, and players were leveling up much faster than we intended them to. So what you'll likely find moving forward is that critical components will mostly drop from higher level crates instead of lower, and higher level crates will be dropping less frequently.

    Still possible to get them, definitely, just gonna take a bit of extra effort.
