What are Gold?
New Resources Found in Game
Players have been discovering Gold around the island. These Gold are neither items or weapons, but instead are material resource that can be farmed in specific areas.
No Known Uses Yet
Although you can get Gold even in live games, its use is still unknown. It can't be selected as a material and there is no added item/feature that makes use of it yet.
Possible as a Currency
Shaped like a gold coin, it's possible that the Gold you get is a currency. Maybe you'll need a certain number of them to open a chest or it might be used on a Vending Machine or something.
Might be Added as Part of Challenge/LTM
It's also possible that the Gold is related to upcoming challenge wherein you'll need to collect them. It could also be part of an LTM where you need to collect coins similar to that of Score Royale.Check Out the Season 2 Challenge List Here
