What are you going to buy with gold bars?

Getting ~20 lvl ain’t hard. It’s not really pay to win

If you can bypass rank, no matter what rank or how long it could take, it's so very clearly pay to win.

 

I've played approx 15 hours, granted it was casually and just goofing, but I'm not rank 20 yet. If gold was available to buy, I could skip rank and still buy guns.

 

Pay to win.

It's a grind. I'm at nearly 35.00 Gold and I'm earning them. I ain't gonna drop money on this game for Gold or $. Never

Fishing won't get you gold, btw. Neither level you up for treasure hunt maps

I know. Just for fun and a few bucks. I'll plod the PvE missions too but as there's only 8, I don't want to over do them and get bored.

 

(Plus if no friendly/invite lobbies come, it's all in vain anyway, lol).

There is a topic about cash and R* gave us 15 gold bars, so there is one question. What are you going to buy with it?

Christmas presents for everyone.

I don't see much else to spend gold on. Wish I could spend it on ability cards. They're so expensive. Takes $900 to unlock Tier 3.

I figure they're already giving away gold a week in and they'll likely give more away. 

 

Sooo I bought some hightop moccasins and a checkered blue workshirt 😆

Last week, a few days before the 15 gold drop I had 2.6 gold and bought a river lure for salmon and trout with 1 gold. I was figuring they would nerf the payouts at some point , probably b4 I hit level 31 and the tins of worms were ripping me off b4 I learned of the work around .  No regrets .... I bought a lake lure for 1 gold last night . Atm I have 16 and holding though .

I bought some rank-locked stuff and customized my rifle. Still saving some.

Those who were complaining about the economy shouldn't spend them. You were preaching how evil and shady Rockstar was, so don't cave in. Lol

These sound like the same people who say they've stopped playing GTA and will never buy another Rockstar game, and yet they still come here every week to bitch.

Just buy them physically off the shelf rather than through the catalog.

I tried to save mine. Couldn't hold out though. 

 

I bought the dark blued metal for my Schofield, which made the gold engravings look incredible, by the way. 

 

And I bought a couple clothing items. For some reason, I really wanted the Lancer vest to complete my character. 

 

I still have a couple bars left, but it was worth it to feel completely satisfied with my clothes and pistols.

I bought the secondary holster that matched the gunbelt from the Grizzlies outfit and some fitted pants. I only had one gold bar afterwards, but my girl looks fierce...

I ended up buying the second holster as well. Missed having those dual revolvers. Spent the rest on fishing lures.

I will be grinding story and stranger missions to save up some gold. Not sure what to spend it on yet. I am also grinding money to part with roughly two hundred fifty for a Bow and Lancaster Repeater, enough money that I won't miss that small fortune.

I splurged on a second holster 5 levels early but aside from I still plan to hoard as I've looked high and low and nothing is screaming BUY ME... I'll customize some guns eventually but I haven't settled on a final loadout yet.
