Points are a valuable form of currency for many players. Points can be used in exchange for a Racing License, Bazaar, Display Cabinet and even more Friends and Enemies space!

How To Earn Points

There are several ways to earn points in Torn, this can be done by:

Buying points from the market

Although these can be hard to find sometimes, demand on this market is high. See Points Market below.

A single donation of $5.00 USD will provide you with a Donator Pack which gives 50 points when used. Multiple donations of this method can yield random extra-bonus points.

Subscribe to the game

Becoming a subscriber will give you 75 points either annually or monthly (Monthly subscription gives 75 points a month, annual gives 900 a year).

Steal points in the Pawn Shop

Succeeding the 13 Nerve Pawn Shop Crime (Side Door only) will give you 3-7 points. If you choose to do this crime, then be warned that if you fail, you will lose a large chunk of crime experience.

Submitting to the Newspaper

You can submit your comics and articles to the newspaper when level 10. If accepted, a comic will reward 250 points and an article gives 500 points (If you are a regular contributor to the Newspaper then you may receive more points).

Exchanging artifacts and other collectible sets in the Museum

All artifacts as well as complete flower sets and plushie sets can be exchanged in the Museum for points (unlocked after completing the Bachelor of History). The amount of points you can acquire ranges between 10 for a complete plushie set to 10,000 for a single Egyptian amulet.
