There are seven types of currency in the game:
Is the most easily acquired type of currency. However, it is worth noting that Silver is also the most needed currency later, due to enormous upgrade prices of the weapons/bots from level 8 and above, and the relatively small amount of Silver gained per battle.Over half of the robot types and over half of the equipment and weapons cost silver. It is the only type of currency used to upgrade robots and equipment (non-Titan) to higher levels.
Silver is awarded for a variety of accomplishments during battles: most significantly the total damage dealt to enemies. Other events that earn silver are: number of robots destroyed (killing shots), number of beacons capped, and number of critical hits (shots that destroy weapons or slow a robot's movement speed). Winning the match will add a 50% bonus.
Additional Silver can be purchased in the game by spending Gold, and you can earn more silver per match by buying Premium.

Another uses includes accelerating upgrade times or enhancing a robot to Mk2.A player earns 50 Gold each time they level up.

- Capturing the most beacons (bonus gold for winning)
- Getting the most kills (bonus gold for winning)
- 5 gold for first place (Free-for-All)
- 3 gold for second place (Free-for-All)
