What is Marvel Snap gold?

Gold is one of two resources in Marvel Snap, with the other being credits. You can use gold to purchase credits, making it easier to upgrade your current cards, pick up a new card variant in the shop, or unlock daily missions once you’ve run out. We recommend using all your gold for credits early on, so that you can concentrate on upgrading cards and working through the collection levels to unlock the entire roster of cards.

How do I get Marvel Snap gold?

As we mentioned earlier, the easiest way to pick up Marvel Snap gold is by purchasing it directly through the app. However, we’re well aware this isn’t always an option, so we’ve looked for different ways to pick up some freebies, which you can check out below.

Season pass

You can pick up some free Marvel Snap gold by keeping up with the season pass. Even if you don’t want to go for the premium option, there’s still a good bit of gold up for grabs for getting through the levels, so it’s well worth keeping up to date with daily challenges to max out that season pass progression bar.

Weekly challenge

Just like the season pass mechanic, you can grab some free gold by working through each weekly challenge and completing all the available daily challenges. There’s a surprising amount of freebies on offer here, with plenty of credits up for grabs as well as gold, so be sure to pay attention to when your daily challenges respawn.

Check your inbox

The Marvel Snap team often distributes rewards during special events or for reaching milestones, so be sure to always check your inbox for any goodies you might have missed. Though they dish credits out more often than not, you can occasionally pick up some gold to spend as you wish.

Rank rewards

Marvel Snap has plenty of systems, and besides battle pass, you can also earn gold through the rank rewards system. Keep in mind that to get to a level where you unlock gold as a rank reward you need a good deck and a firm idea of how the game works, but if you can master the ranks, then there’s some extra goodies there for you.
