Best ISO Farming Guide for Marvel: Contest of Champions

To have a better shot at advancing in the game and get your 3 star champions from the arena, you will need to farm quite a bit of ISO-8 to level up and rank up your heroes. In this guide, we will go over each of the stages in each of the chapters.

Please note that we will only list the best route for each of the stages, if you are going for 100% exploration rewards, please check out the the individual stage page.

This ISO farming guide is not complete yet, we will continue to update this as we move along in the game. Please feel free to share your thoughts if you have better farming locations.

In general, the best farming locations consider a few factors – the amount of steps or energy used, the numbers of higher star chests available, and lastly, the amount of fights that you have to go through. We have also created an easy to read screen shot of the stage to help you visualize the path. However, because of the number of images involved, we have only included a link to the image on this guide. Hope you would enjoy our compilation of best Marvel: Contest of Champions ISO farming location guide.
