War Thunder Golden Eagles: How To Get Them For Free [Legit Methods]
If you play War Thunder, chances are that you've seen the current prices of Golden Eagles, which probably made you think if there was a way to get them for free. Well, we have good news for you because, believe it or not, you can actually obtain Golden Eagles at no cost, and there are few ways to accomplish that!
This article will show all the legit approaches you can use to get free GE in this combined arms battles game, as well as in-detail guides on how to do it, so without any delay, let's get straight into it.
What Are Golden Eagles In War Thunder Used For?
Before we reveal the methods of getting Golden Eagles for free, let's see what they actually are. War Thunder, like any other free-to-play game, has the in-game currency used for monetization, which in this case is Golden Eagles. This currency can be used for various items and benefits, allowing players to get an advantage compared to non-paying players. Some of these include:
- Upgrading to a premium account
- Getting the premium vehicles
- Purchasing the skins
- Purchasing the vehicle modifications
- Increasing the speed of research and training
- Creating a squadron
- Buying additional crew slots
Along with that, Golden Eagles has another (less valued) in-game currency called Silver Lions which cannot be used for getting the premium content, and Golden Eagles can also be exchanged for this currency.
How To Get Free Golden Eagles In War Thunder?
Fortunately for War Thunder players, there are few choices of methods used for getting free GE, including both those endorsed by developers and those that are unconventional. Below, you'll find all available methods so you can pick whichever works best for you.
Method #1: Through Tournaments/Promotional Events
For this method, you'll need to be an excellent War Thunder player because your rewards are based on how you perform in special events or tournaments. Gaijin Entertainment organizes various in-game events and tournaments throughout the year.
But to be eligible to join these events and tournaments, you'll need a high rank since not everyone can participate.
Clearly, this is the most challenging approach to getting free Golden Eagles, mainly because players of high skill levels will be competing for these rewards, so you'll need to put your best foot forward if you want to win.
Method #2: Golden Eagles App (Android Only)
War Thunder players with Android devices can rejoice! With this new approach, anyone with an Android device can download the official Golden Eagles App and complete offers to earn free Golden Eagles. This is certainly a rare occurrence because this is an official app rather than a third-party service.
Using the Golden Eagles app allows getting up to 300 free Golden Eagles daily, with the addition of weekly competition that could potentially reward you with up to 1500 free Golden Eagles!
Unfortunately, there is no iOS version available as of this moment, but hopefully, the developers will release this version as well.
Method #3: Referring A Friend
Not many players of War Thunder know that they can earn free Golden Eagles by referring friends. Unfortunately, this is not as easy as it sounds because Gaijin Entertainment wanted to prevent abuse of this system—you cannot simply make an account and refer yourself in order to get free Golden Eagles.
When someone clicks on your unique invite link, registers for a new War Thunder account, and reaches a specific rank, you'll be rewarded with free Golden Eagles. The more players advance in the game, the more Golden Eagles you'll earn.
On top of this, those who register using this method will get 50 free Golden Eagles, so it's a win-win situation. In any case, this is how many free Golden Eagles you'll get for every time someone registers on War Thunder using your referral link:
- Rank II: 70 000 Silver Lions
- Rank III: 500 Golden Eagles
- Rank V: 2 500 Golden Eagles
So if you'd like to create your own custom referral link, simply open the options in War Thunder, and click on the "Invite Friend" option.
Method #4: Freecash
If you've read the previous methods we mentioned, you've surely realized how they aren't really guaranteed and reliable ways of getting free Golden Eagles. You'll either have to rely on your skills, use the Golden Eagles app, which, truth to tell, is very limited, or wait for someone who registered using your referral link to rank up.
However, the method we're about to show you is definitely the most convenient, and it's a guaranteed way of getting free Golden Eagles. This method involves Freecash, a get-paid-to service that allows anyone, regardless of the location, to complete online tasks, get awarded with Freecash Coins, and exchange them for any of 20+ rewards, including those that can be used for getting free Golden Eagles.
This service is used by thousands of those who simply don’t wish to pay for online goods, and Freecash is a 100% legit service that even has a mobile app!
To get started with Freecash, please follow the instructions below.
Register On Freecash
To start, you'll need to create an account on Freecash.com or through the Freecash app, which you can do by signing in through your Google or Steam account.
When you register, you'll receive a popup field in which you can type our bonus code "TGG." Entering it will be worth your time—you could win up to $250, equivalent to over 50000 Golden Eagles!
Earn Freecash Coins
Next, you need to earn Freecash Coins—the virtual currency awarded by completing online tasks on Freecash.
The image above shows what the Offer Walls section looks like. Each offer listed has a different set of tasks for you to complete, giving you the opportunity to earn Freecash Coins and exchange them for various rewards.
Exchange Freecash Coins
As you complete more tasks and earn more Freecash Coins, you'll get closer to your goal of exchanging them for Golden Eagles. You can exchange them for PlayStation, Xbox, or PC gift cards or any other rewards that might interest you. When you choose to "Cashout," you'll be able to pick the rewards that are best suited for you.
As an example, let's choose an Xbox gift card.
Regardless of what gift card you choose, you'll have four available denominations of gift cards to pick from. This time, it's from $5 to $50.
Redeem Code To Get Free Golden Eagles
Once you've accumulated enough Freecash Coins, head over to the "Withdraw" page and select your preferred Xbox gift card denomination.
Once you do, you'll be able to redeem it on your console, PC, or even a mobile device, by visiting the official Microsoft redemption page or by entering the code on your console manually.
