If there is one resource in Mobile Strike that all players can never have enough of it’s gold. Gold can be used to purchase pretty much everything in Mobile Strike, so any way you can earn a little extra without opening your wallet has got to be a good thing.
This guide looks at the an easy way to earn 34,500 free gold a month, along with other ways you can maximise your gold income.
The gold mine is one of the most over looked buildings in Mobile Strike. This is largely because it is relatively expensive to upgrade (costing 1,000 gold per level) and offers seemingly low rewards to start with. The key point to remember about the gold mine is that those small daily amounts of gold, add up considerably over time.
Even a level 1 gold mine (which costs nothing to build) offers 50 gold per day, which works out at 1,500 gold a month. A fully maxed out gold mine at level 21 it will bring in an impressive 300 gold per day, or 9,000 free gold a month.
You can follow my guide on how to use the gold mine and the payback time after upgrading to level 21 here.
The Vault is a fairly new addition to Mobile Strike and allows you to invest gold for 1, 3 or 7 days in order to earn interest in the form of more gold.
At level 4 the best investment to make is 5,000 gold every day. This will reward you with 850 gold a day, or 25,500 gold a month. You do need to remember to login at the same time every day to take out your investment and reinvest your capital for another day.
Unfortunately to get a level 4 Vault you do need to buy gold packs to unlock it, so I guess technically this is not truly free gold. However, once unlocked your Vault will continue to offer your 25,500 gold every month indefinitely at no extra cost.
You can buy the cheapest possible pack to unlock level 1 and then you need to buy a pack offering at least 8,000 gold to unlock level 2 and increasingly higher packs for each subsequent level. Note that you do need to buy a separate pack for each level.
Other Methods to Earn Free Gold
The gold mine and the vault will provide you with 17,100 of free passive gold every month once maxed, but there are other methods to earn a decent amount of gold, all be it a little less reliable:-
- Alliance Gifts – This obviously depends on your alliance and the number of big spenders, but a top alliance with a high gift level and a few big spenders can easily see you earn well in excess of 35k gold a month from gifts alone.
- Challenges – Some challenges do offer some great gold rewards, especially if you can hit the tier 3 or leader board prizes. If your going to spend gold to win challenges, try to work out how much gold you need to spend to win before starting. If the gold rewards are higher go for it.
- Shooting range – This is a pretty unreliable method to earn gold to be honest. Sometimes you might get lucky and find 2,000, or 3,000 gold in a crate at the end of a full auto stage, but generally the gold rewards are low and infrequent.
- SVS Gold Tiles – These are fast to clear and although there is stiff competition to get on those tiles, you can frequently get a run on 4-5-6 gold tiles with at least a few level 4 tiles to clear. Level 4 tiles earn 600 gold, level 5 1200 gold and level 6 will get you 1600 gold. In a state with almost no rules for tile hitting it will be hard to farm those tiles, but a good day of gold farming will get you between 5-8 k a day. I even got to 18k once, but back then the competition was lower because players had less deployments to send out.
You will need a state with enough power players to win svs challenges, but if you’re lucky enough your state will win 40-50% of those challenges per week.
The problem will be the time zones for some. Level 6 gold appears while most in the USA will be sleeping, those in Europe or Asia will get a good chance though to fill some of those tiles (courtesy of Eric in the comments section below).
- Normal Gold Tiles – Probably the worst method in game to earn gold. The gathering rate is extremely slow, the amount of gold on most tiles is very low and to top it off lots of players seem to be desperate to occupy gold tiles, meaning there is a high chance of being tile hit!
Unless you are in an alliance with lots of big spenders, then the gold mine and vault are probably the most reliable methods to obtain regular free gold for most players. Challenges are also useful if you plan them well and make sure you always come out gold positive.
