Explained: How STEPN Luck Really Works

Are you trying to figure out how the STEPN Luck attribute works?

Perhaps you recently started playing STEPN but feel completely overwhelmed by all of the different factors that influence the gameplay?

Well, don’t worry, because it’s very common for newbies to get lost in all of the different attributes and in-game items that influence how successful you are.

In this guide, you’ll learn what Luck actually does in STEPN as well as how it will affect your STEPN strategy.

Let’s get started!

Key Points (tl;dr)
  • Luck is one of the four different attributes that sneaker NFTs have within the STEPN Play-to-Earn game.
  • The value of Luck that your sneaker NFT has, influences the drop rate of Mystery Boxes during gameplay. The more Luck you have, the more likely you are to receive a Mystery Box.
  • Based on data collected and analyzed by STEPNStats, there seems to be an optimal range for the “Luck” attribute:
    • The minimum Luck that every STEPNer should have is 15-20
    • The maximum Luck that the best sneakers should have is between 40 and 60
  • Other STEPN attributes include Efficiency, Comfort, and Resilience. Each attribute impacts a different aspect of the game and attributes can also affect the effectiveness of each other. In other words: You should know that there are interdependencies.

What is Luck in STEPN?

“Luck” is 1 of 4 different attributes of sneaker NFT in the STEPN Move-to-Earn game. The attributes of your sneaker NFTs influence various aspects of the gameplay, including your ability to earn GST, STEPN’s primary utility token.

Not only are there different sneaker types, sneaker qualities as well as various levels.

Each sneaker also comes with 4 attributes that can impact a number of aspects of the game depending on the values of the attributes.

Today we are going to talk specifically about the STEPN Luck attribute.

The “Luck” attribute in STEPN is the one that determines the frequency and quality of Mystery box drops.

And guess what, it doesn’t only impact the likelihood while you are playing the game yourself, but also while you might be leasing your sneakers out to someone else.

You might be wondering why you should care, right?

Well, there are many different levels of Mystery Boxes and they contain so-called Gems and Minting Scrolls.

These are items that you will eventually need in order to play the game better.

How Does STEPN Luck Affect STEPN Mystery Boxes?

Your sneaker NFT’s “Luck” value is an important factor in determining the likelihood of you receiving a STEPN Mystery Box during gameplay. You can increase your chances of finding Mystery Drops by upgrading your sneaker NFT’s “Luck” attribute.

To be honest, only the developers of STEPN have a truly holistic view of how all the different elements impact each other.

Bear in mind that while some things will have a positive impact on some attributes, they may have negative consequences in other areas.

Let’s a have a quick look at the Mystery Box Value, which determines the likelihood of a drop:

MysteryBoxValue (V) = N * (PSL+PSLC)^SystemValue3

What do these variables mean?

  • PSL: Player Sneaker Luck
  • PSLC: Player Sneaker Luck Coefficient (Gems/Sockets, NFT Badges)

We could simplify the formula into the following:

Drop Likelihood = Energy * Luck ^ SystemValue3

No one really knows what the value of SystemValue3 (SV3) is, but analysis from the community has suggested that it might be close to 0.26.

Either way, some people might assume that you want to increase your STEPN Luck attribute as much as possible.

However, that isn’t the case at all.

According to the formula above, and taking into account SV3, there is a point at which your STEPN Luck starts to impact GST earning potential.

There’s a fairly detailed analysis available in a Twitter thread, where Krit from STEPNstats actually does all the number crunching.

The key takeaways from it are:

  • The minimum STEPN Luck that every STEPNer should have is 15-20
  • The maximum STEPN Luck that the best Polyvalent sneakers should have is between 40 and 60

There’s more that could be said about Mystery Boxes, but we’ll reserve that for a dedicated article.

The main thing for you to remember is that Luck influences your chances of getting a Mystery Box.

And you’re going to need them as you progress through the game.

Just make sure you don’t overstretch certain attributes because extremely high values only make sense in very rare cases.

What Other STEPN Attributes Are There?

There are a total of 4 different STEPN attributes that sneaker NFTs can have: Efficiency, Luck, Comfort, and Resilience. Each attribute impacts a different aspect of the STEPN gameplay mechanics.

We’re currently working on dedicated mini-guides that address each of the attributes in more detail.
