Arcade is a section in the shop where a player can acquire pets, consumable animations, and other cosmetics. The Arcade has five options, the Pet Catcher, Summer Pet Catcher, Pet Exchange, Emote Gachapon and Vending Machine. The items earned here (other than Emotes) are unique in that they utilize the Steam Marketplace and are stored in the player's Steam Inventory.
The Arcade is primarily used with a currency called Arcade Tokens. Every week on Monday at 1:00 AM (PST), the player will receive 15 Exchange Coupons in their Steam Inventory, an item which is converted into 3 Arcade Tokens upon completion of an online game. Un-converted Exchange Coupons from the previous week are not carried over to the next week. 6 additional Arcade Tokens are given each week in addition to the Exchange Coupons. The Pet Catcher machines can only be used with these tokens, which limits the number of activations each week.
Pet Catchers[edit | edit source]
The Pet Catchers, symbolized as an arcade crane game, are more or less gatchapon vending machines with a selection of random rewards inside. There are two different types of Pet Catchers; the standard Pet Catcher and the Summer Pet Catcher. These Pet Catchers operate identically, with the only difference being which prizes can be won from each machine. Arcade Tokens can be used on the Pet Catchers to have a chance of earning either consumable animations (which can be used during a match) or pets (which can be equipped as cosmetics). One spin on a Pet Catcher costs the player 3 Arcade Tokens, and items within a Pet Catcher have different rarities which affect how likely the player is to get it. All consumable animations are of Common rarity, give 2x of the won animation, and also reward the player with 10 Oranges for use in purchasing crates or hair colors. All pets are of higher rarity and the player will only receive one.
The Pet Catchers also contains a pity reward system for players with particularly bad luck. If 10 Common-rarity items are won from the Pet Catchers in a row, an item of higher rarity will be automatically granted, with much higher odds than typically given. This system is represented by an item called a Receipt, which is added to the player's Steam Inventory upon winning a common item. All receipts will disappear either upon winning a reward that is above Common rarity, or upon accumulating 10 receipts. Once 10 receipts have been obtained, an item above Common rarity will be immediately rewarded byor , after the 10th common item is received.
Pet Exchange[edit | edit source]
The Pet Exchange is a section of the Arcade where the player can trade in two of the same kind of standard-color pet to receive a random alternate color variant of that pet. Selecting the pet exchange will display a window showing all standard-color pets that the player has at least 2 of. This is the only way to obtain color variants (besides the Steam Marketplace), as the Pet Catcher will only give pets of the standard color. Every alternate color variant of a given pet has an equal chance of being received.
The player will always receive an alternate color, however, they may receive duplicates of alternate colors over continued uses of the Pet Exchange. The player can either keep or try to sell their duplicate alternate colored pets on the Steam Marketplace, but they cannot reuse them in the pet exchange to get a new color. It should also be noted that not all pets (generally special event pets or pets with specific unlock conditions) have alternate colors or instead have alternate colors that are purchased in the in-game shop, not the Pet Exchange.
Emote Gachapon[edit | edit source]
The Emote Gachapon allows the player to obtain a random emote for use in chat. It costs 30 Oranges to use each time (note the player can purchase any emote they want in the shop for 45 or 75 Oranges each depending on the emote). The emotes can then be used in chat by clicking the smiley emoticon in the chat interface. The player will never gain a duplicate emote.
Vending Machine[edit | edit source]
The Vending Machine is a section of the Arcade where players can spend oranges in order to directly purchase Common-rarity items, rather than winning them from a Pet Catcher. Each item costs 20 Oranges, and there is a 1-minute cooldown on buying items of the same type. Given the high drop rate of common items from using arcade tokens, the vending machine is often the least used machine, used more often than not as a way for players with 999 oranges to have something to spend their excess oranges on.
List of Consumable Animations[edit | edit source]
Consumable animations are frivolous items which can be used during a match.
- They all have a rarity of "Common".
- They are used from the "Items" tab, located on the left of the screen and represented by a icon.
- Most consumables can only be used when it is not the player's turn. However, hearts can only be used when it is the player's turn.
- They have a 5-second cooldown between uses.
- They can be traded between players, but cannot be listed on the Steam Marketplace.
|Fireworks (Red)||Common||Launch fireworks during a game!|
|Heart (Pink)||Common||Send a heart to a friend or that special someone!|
|Balloons||Common||Assorted balloons to follow you for a short moment.|
|Rainy Cloud||Common||Feeling under the weather?|
List of Pets[edit | edit source]
Pets are cosmetics that stand alongside the player's character and follow you during a match. They each have a unique set of poses to match your character's.
- The type of pet that can be won depends on which Pet Catcher is used.
- Pets are the only cosmetics that you can receive duplicates of.
- Standard-color pets are received from the Pet Catchers, while alternate-color pets are received from the Pet Exchange.
- Both standard-color and alternate-color pets can be listed on and bought from the Steam Marketplace, as well as traded between players.
- Each icon below links to each pet's respective Steam Marketplace page.
List of Special/Event Pets[edit | edit source]
Some pets aren't obtained from the Arcade, and are instead acquired by other means.
- They all have a rarity of "Rare".
- The alternate colorations of these pets are bought in the "Pets" tab of the shop, becoming available for purchase after the standard variant is obtained.
- Red & Blue is the only pet that cannot be viewed in the Steam Inventory. If ownership of the DLC is lost, the pet will also be lost.
- These pets cannot be listed on the Steam Marketplace or traded.

Inventory Warning[edit | edit source]
As the topic has been broached in multiple instances on the Steam Forums, the player should be aware that some OJ items cannot be removed from their Steam Inventory. Consumable animations can be spent, tickets and receipts can be used, most pets can be traded away or sold, but special pets are listed as "Not Tradable" and "Not Marketable" and thus cannot be traded or removed from the inventory. This measure was added as the developers want to prevent cases where users accidentally remove rare items in their inventory since there is no way for the developers to return the items to the user. As a result, the developers will not and cannot remove Steam Inventory items on request. If the player truly wants to avoid inventory deletion issues, they will want to avoid using the Arcade all together, avoiding purchasing DLCs that contain special pets, and miss game events on purpose using the wiki's clock to know when the event has ended.
However, if the player is having legitimate issues with the Steam Inventory (items not stacking properly, etc.), they are welcome to request help from the developers on the Steam Forums or on Discord.
