SF3 coin gem

Shadow Fight 3 features three major types of currencies - Coins, Gems and Shadow Energy. In addition to this, special currencies exclusive to an event may also be introduced from time to time. Each type of currency is obtained in different ways and is used to fulfill a special purpose.

Main Currencies[]



Coins are the most common type of currency in the game. They can be obtained as rewards from main and side quests as well as duels and Secret Fights, opening chests, marathons, battle pass, Lucky Board minigame. Additionally, players will be rewarded with extra coins as a reward for special conditions (e.g., perfect, highest combos) on some fights (mostly from the main/side quest, Secret Fights, and Faction Wars fights). Event fight doesn't give extra coins rewards.). Alternatively, players may convert some of their gems into coins from the in-game store. Coins are used for buying and upgrading items from the daily store. When starting a new game, players start with 900 coins.



Crimson, diamond shaped gems are a premium currency which can be obtained as rewards from boss battles as well as daily missions and Transformation quest fights, marathons, battle pass, Lucky Board minigame and duel seasonal rewards. In addition, they can also be bought from the store via in-app purchases. They are much rarer than coins, and can be used for buying and upgrading items from the daily store as well as opening Booster Packs and chests, or customizing the base character. Rare Booster Packs in all chapters can be bought for 100 gems while Epic Booster Packs cost 400 gems and Legendary ones can be obtained for 2,000 gems. When starting a new game, players start with 90 gems.

Shadow Energy[]

Shadow Currency

Shadow Energy is a type of currency which is used to upgrade equipment. It can be bought from the shop with coins at a considerably high price. Shadow energy also can be obtained by winning any fights, be it main quests or missions, Secret Fights, marathons, battle pass, Lucky Board minigame, opening chests and claiming Bonus cards. Additionally, stacking an equipment piece that is already owned will give the player an amount of shadow energy. Players will gain more if said item is upgraded, and even more with higher item's rarity. Players can use them for upgrading items via the player's equipment section and cannot be utilized for any other purpose.

Shadow Energy can be obtained by stacking the equipment that the player already have and if the item was upgraded (power increased) by this way. However, it is not obtainable by upgrading items through the shop and marathons. The stronger the item power, the more shadow energy will be given. The player also can obtain Shadow Energy through various activities rewards like quest rewards, chests drop, marathon, events, and the Battle Pass. When starting a new game, players start with 150 shadow energy.

  • Common item: Gives 1 shadow energy

  • Epic and Unique item: Gives 50-150 shadow energy
  • Legendary item: Gives 500-1400 shadow energy

Event Currencies[]

These currencies are available during an event and are only valid at that event. All accumulated event currencies will be reset at the next event launch.
