Golden Eggs are the currency of Shell Shockers. Players can use Golden Eggs to buy Hats, Stamps, Gun skins, and Grenade Skins in the shop. They are earned by getting kills in online matches. 10 Golden Eggs are given each time you kill someone. However, on 2x weekends this will become 20 eggs per kill. With VIP Club you will get 20 eggs per kill and 40 eggs per kill on 2x weekends. You also have the new Minigame, chicken winner, where you can watch ads and be rewarded with 50-100 000 eggs. In the shop, items for sale can cost anywhere from 200 to 100000 Golden Eggs.
If the player is a VIP member, they will receive twenty golden eggs for each kill, instead of ten.
Occasionally, there are x2 Golden Egg events, or "Double Egg Weekends", in which the eggs per kill are doubled for all players. This multiplier stacks with VIP.The player gets 10 eggs per kill, 20 eggs with the double multiplier, and 40 with a double multiplier and being a VIP Club member.
There used to be a function called the "Chicken Nugget", which (after pressing an egg repeatedly a few times) granted you double eggs and all eggshell colors for one hour, all for free. This was later removed to make space for the new VIP role, as the "Chicken Nugget" granted almost all the features of the VIP role.
Another way you can get Golden Eggs is by signing up for the New Yolker. When Blue Wizard Digital sends the Mid-Month New Yolker Emails, they'll send a link to get 500 Golden Eggs. Pressing this button will take you to the game lobby, and a message will appear saying "Eggsellent!" and will award you 500 Golden Eggs for free.
You can also get Golden Eggs by being on the winning team during the Gamemode King of The Coop. If you are on the winning team, then you can 250 golden eggs for free. It is important to note that this award is called a "Team Loyalty Bonus". If you switch teams halfway through the game, you will not receive your 250 eggs due to "cheating".
Golden Eggs can also be purchased with real money via the Egg Shack. These offers include $5 for 3000 Golden Eggs, $10 for 6500 Golden Eggs, and $20 for 15,000 Golden Eggs. In addition to this, occasional sales will be held, such as the Black Fryday 2x egg special which doubled the number of eggs you could buy.
As of update 0.42.4 update, a small minigame called the Chickin' Winner was added. After watching an ad, players got to pick one egg that held a surprise about free golden eggs. Despite BWD writing that it was possible to win up to 100,000 Golden Eggs, it has only been known to get 50, 100, and 200 eggs (Need Confirmation). If you have an ad blocker enabled, you cannot play this minigame all three times.
