Everyone who went through the first section of the guide knows how to unlock Weapons, Specializations, and Gadgets. This section includes the answer to another question: how to unlock VRs in The Finals? I will be providing the answer to this question now.

In order to unlock VRs in The Finals, players are required to grind the game as much as possible. In other words, the more you play different modes of The Finals, the more VRs you will earn. However, it should also be kept in mind that winning games can earn you an immense amount of VRs as well.

The most efficient and fastest way to earn VRs is to play the Quick Cash mode in the Quickplay game mode. However, you have to make sure that you win the match. It is really easy to win the Quick Cash mode because all you need to do is Cashout twice, or sometimes even one Cashout will lead you to victory. Winning the Quick Cash mode does not only reward you with a large sum of VRs, but it will also grant you a lot of XP.

My Experience So Far In The Finals

As someone who has been playing FPS games for almost 5+ years now, I think The Finals is really fun and interesting game to play as it combines the mechanics of Call of Duty and Battlefield, two of the most fan-favorite games, into one game.

As for the part of unlocking weapons, the fastest way I have almost unlocked all of my weapons is to play the Quick Cash mode as much as possible and emerge victorious. However, that is not it; winning the Ranked mode in Tournament game mode also rewards you with a lot of VRs and XP, but winning the Ranked Tournament mode is not an easy task that every player in The Finals can accomplish.

With all of the information provided above, my guide on The Finals How To Unlock Weapons comes to an end. In this guide, I have mentioned that weapons can be unlocked by earning VRs. VRs, in turn, can be earned by playing The Finals as much as possible. Winning games can also add a lot of VRs to your earnings.
