Coins are used for purchasing different methods to help you progress through a quest. Coins have no bearing on your leaderboard rank or your chances of winning, except that they enable you to buy certain advantages. Coins may also be used to purchase Skavengerz merchandise in our store (coming soon).
For example, you may spend coins to purchase hints for various tasks. Each task will have hints available to help you complete it sooner. It's up to you whether you wish to spend coins for that.
Additionally, you may purchase Power-ups (coming soon) which include discounted hint packs, radar, time machines, teleporters, and a variety of other tools that give players a significant advantage. It's worth experimenting with the different Power-ups and your coins to see how they can best help your individual playing style.
Please note that coins are non-transferrable. Players must earn them for themselves. We believe in democratizing access to legendary prizes for everyone, not just the rich. All coins must be earned through completing tasks in normal Quests, Daily Challenges, or Side Quests.
