T-Doll Production is the primary “gacha” mechanic in Girls’ Frontline and one of the main keys to progressing in the game. Unlike most other gacha systems, T-Doll Production does not rely on one premium currency but rather four farmable in-game Resources (Manpower, Ammo, Rations, Parts) and has a random result based on the total amount of Resources committed. This system allows players to “manipulate” the gacha to a certain extent, as each class of T-Doll can only be found within a certain range of spent resources.
According to an official statement from Digital Sky, the construction rates for each rarity are as follows:
As previously stated, the class of T-Doll obtained is related to the amount of resources used in crafting. As a general rule, HGs are crafted using the lowest amount of resources, SMGs, ARs, and RFs are crafted using a moderate amount, and MGs are crafted using the highest amount of resources. Using a higher amount of resources in crafting does not guarantee a higher rarity T-Doll, however, so don’t waste your resources!
There are unspecified resource limits in the game that dictate the chances of being able to obtain specific classes of weapons. The primary resource thresholds are a total of 800 across all four resources, which is the lower resource limit for producing ARs, and 920 across all resources, which is the upper resource limit for producing HGs. This means that if you do not commit at least 800 total resources (in any combination) to construction, there is zero chance to get an AR, and if you commit more than 920 total resources, there is zero chance to get an HG.
Although there are resource limits for producing specific classes, there are no strict formulas for using specific amounts of each resource to get a specific weapon or weapon type. The “recipes” for each weapon class given in the following sections have been confirmed to generally obtain specific classes of weapons through extensive testing, but are not absolute rules for obtaining high-rarity T-Dolls. Players are encouraged to tweak these recipes slightly or experiment with different recipes for their own curiosity and enjoyment.
The following table gives a list of commonly-used recipes for players trying to craft specific classes of T-Dolls. Note that each recipe may not exclusively yield the class of weapon listed, and that these recipes are still subject to normal rarity rates and do not guarantee 4 or 5-star T-Dolls.
|Target T-Doll Class||Manpower / Ammo / Rations / Parts||Comments|
|AR, RF, SMG||430 / 430 / 430 / 230||A highly recommended beginner recipe, as it will provide a wide class variety of T-Dolls.|
|HG||130 / 130 / 130 / 130||This recipe may also result in some SMGs, including the 5 star SMG Thompson.|
|SMG||400 / 400 / 91 / 30||91 Rations is used to avoid HGs, and can be changed to 90 if different resource is increased by 1 or more.|
|AR||91 / 400 / 400 / 30||90 Manpower + 90 Parts is also usable.|
|RF||400 / 91 / 400 / 30|
|MG||600 / 600 / 100 / 400||700 Manpower is also usable.|
