Spending

Obtaining

When you kill someone you can be lucky and they drop 1 gem when they die. This rarely happens unless you have crafted something like the great trees in the lobby in craft it increases your chance of gem drop from other players.

One can obtain a certain amount of gems by purchasing them via in-app purchase. If you want to earn gems without buying, here are all of the methods below.

  • In the 9.0.0 update, as known as the update where the gems were introduced, they can be obtained (without buying) by leveling up (you earn a certain amount of gems depending on your current level) and by the Bonus Marathon (which is currently the Lucky Chest).
  • As of the 10.1.0 update, players can earn 10 Gem.png each by logging in on Facebook and/or Twitter, a free gun called the Social Uzi, and a skin called Social Hero. They earn 10 Gem.png by each connection, making a maximum of 20 Gem.png obtainable via social media connections.
  • As of the 10.5.0 update, the advertisement-based free Coin.png were replaced by Gem.png, so watching the advertisements will give players at least 3 Gem.png each, much like the old Coin.png counterparts.
    • As of the 12.0.0 update, instead of earning 1 Gem.png per an advertisement based video, a change has been made, which is earning 2 Gem.png per advertisement based video instead, every 3 minutes. However, there still is a limit of how many Gem.png you can earn in one day.
  • As of the 10.5.0 update, secret Campaign Gem.png were introduced into Pixel Gun 3D. Instead of just finding Coin.png in Campaign, players can also find Gem.png.
  • In the 10.6.0 update, in multiplayer, there is a 1% chance of a victim dropping a Gem.png. However, anyone can pick it up, so obtain it before someone else does. Also, watch out for Fake Bonuses.
  • In the 11.2.0 update, players can get 50 Gem.png after reaching the Champion League if they are in the top 100 players in the weekly Tournament, making Gem.png collecting way easier, especially if they are very active in Pixel Gun 3D.
  • As of the 10.2.0 update, the Lucky Chest, which was actually called the "Gift Box" at that time, was another way to earn Gem.png. You usually earn, Coin.png etc. but sometimes, 3, 5, 10 or even 50 Gem.png can be obtained.
    • Also, as of the 11.2.0 update, 3 Gem.png take over as the number one possible amount of Gem.png earned in the Lucky Chest. Plus, Gem.png, along with Coin.png, are the most likely things to be obtained from the Lucky Chest, but this only applies to Android devices.
  • In the 12.0.0 update, it is now possible to obtain 1 Gem.png per day, using the Driller device.
  • The Fake Bonus is a gem with a planted C4 on one of the sides.
  • Watching ads now give 10 gems
  • You can get gems from clan wars for either 100 gems, if 1st place.

Trivia

  • In Dangerous Roads, there is a market stand full of gems on the blue team's side.
  • As of the 10.5.0 update, when obtaining a Gem.png, the sounds effect has been modified, making it not sounding the same as the Coin.png's sound effect.
  • In Mining Camp, on the team 1's side, there are two caverns that are used for mining gems.
    • However, these the gems are for the background.
    • It's possibly a reference that half of the weapons in Pixel Gun 3D cost gems.
  • In the 11.1.0 update, the dropped gem has changed its texture to a new one. But then in the 11.2.0 update, it changed back to the old texture due to the fact that players were seeing a difference between a dropped gem and a Fake Bonus.
  • In the 12.5.0 update, the gem multiplier was modified, but this has been reverted in the 12.5.1 update due to immense criticism by the playerbase for not listening to their views on the game.
  • In the 17.6.0 update, on Pixel Gun 3D's 7th anniversary, every player received 100 gems as a gift for the celebration.
