MSA banner crank Step Up 2.14.0.png

The Step Up Crank was first seen in version 2.14.0, during the "Blood Runaway" event. Like the Event and Box Cranks, it is only available for limited periods of time, and only offers unit parts.

Currently, Step Up Cranks only offer Super Rare parts, and only those of previous Step Up units. Originally, the Step Up Crank contained both Rare and Super Rare units.

Each successive pull of the crank costs more than the last, but also reveals an additional icon, making it better value for Medals. For example, the second spin reveals two icons for 560 medals (280 each), whereas the fifth spin reveals five icons for 1,100 medals (220 each). Performing five spins (at a total cost of 3,700 medals) reveals 15 icons in all (~247 medals per icon): after this, the crank automatically resets back to the first step.

The featured unit of the Step Up Crank often fills up a niche role and is powerful, though they aren't usually as strong as those from the Box Crank.

The Step Up can be a boon for particularly lucky players, as its possible to get platinum at a cost much lower than the box crank - however, such instances are extremely rare, and it's possible to spend more medals than the Box Crank and not obtain the unit.

Completing a set of five spins does not change the price of successive sets. Each spin grants an additional award along with its icons (either MSP or a crank key), and these rewards can also be collected multiple times by performing multiple spin sets.

Cost per Icon 300 280 260 240 220

Parts for the featured unit are acquired 110 at a time, with an appearance rate of 1/50 (an average cost of 12,333 medals). These are significantly better odds than those offered by the Box Crank (where the average is 20,000 for 80 parts). However, there is no "safety" feature, so players should pull at their own risk.

Note: The "safety" feature is that when a player spends a set amount of medals, they are guaranteed the featured unit. Unlike Box and Fever Cranks however, there is no gold genie to indicate that the player has gotten the hot unit(s). Normal genies will appear as usual, so any genie that appears should always be taken with caution.

Once the player obtains at least one 110x reward for the featured unit(s), they are also given a special avatar of them.

Originally the Step Up contained a varied amount of Super Rare and Rare units. This was eventually changed, and Step Ups now only offer offer unit parts of previous step up units in quantities of 10, 30 and for the oldest Step Up units, 80 parts. Unlocking the Step Up unit this way will not unlock their pre-acquisition icon, however.

During Dream Lotteries, each reward icon yields a single ticket. This means each full lap yields 15 tickets.

Reproduction Step Up Crank

Occasionally the Step Up Crank sends out reproductions of old units in a manner similar to a reproduced Box Crank. Standard Step Up reproductions feature at least three units as major rewards and follow the old setup of offering parts of other Step Up units and units of various rarities. Seasonal Step Up reproductions also feature other Step Up units not shown on the banner where the 10x and 30x reward icons are replaced with 110x.

April Fools' Crank

Only one instance of this type of crank occurred during 1 April 2019.

As a joke crank, it only offered parts from units of "Normal" and "Rare" rarity. Unlike the normal Step Up Crank, the first four pulls of every April Fools' Crank was free - only the last pull required 150 medals. Unit parts were also awarded in place of the MSP and Medal Crank keys, with the final pull rewarding players with 110 parts of the featured April Fools' Crank.
