It is the premium ammo (often slot 2 of your ammo choice)

 

For a lot of tanks it goes:

Slot 1 - armor piercing (standard) ammo

Slot 2 - premium ammo (usually HEAT or APCR) and it costs a lot more credits

Slot 3 - High Explosive ammo

 

Some vehicles like arty have High Explosive as standard with a premium High Explosive (better pen and/or splash) than regular High Explosive.

 

It is often referred to as "gold ammo" because back in the day it actually cost gold to shoot and not just credits.

It's a part of the game and a topic for the kiddo ragers to get all wound up over. More than enough reason for them to get into an epic tantrum... :child:

It's not gold ammo anymore, it's RNG Mitigation Round.

I wish peeps wouldn't call it "Gold" anymore because you can't buy it with actual ingame gold anymore but I do it myself when I'm raging.  In my head.  To my self.  Because I'm all alone.

When initially introduced,you could only buy with gold.It has more penetration then standard ammo so in effect a cheat you could buy from wargaming.Then they made it so you could buy with credits tho to use it you need to buy credits now instead of gold.This fooled much of the population but most are weak and dont know weak spots and wgs greed wont let go of it.It negates armour which is the basis of the game but just following this forum will tell you they dont really know what they are doing here besides sucking up weak peoples money and of course having a job.

I find this funny.  Not because you are dissing someone older than you, obviously.  I find it funny, because most of us who see this?  This picture is EXACTLY what we see in our heads when we read that "OK, Boomer," phrase.  An obviously overtired LITTLE CHILD, unable to even ride in the car without an extra seat.

 

In short, we consider this autobiographical data.  You sure you want to leave that image in our minds?  That you are a whiny little child?  'Cause that's what we see.

 

Notwithstanding that it's wholly inappropriate to the question asked.  Which is ironically even more appropriate as a descriptor of the person who uses it.  After all, how can we expect to have a decent response from a child too small to even get in a car without mommy or daddy's help?

That's because anybody under 30 is perpetual victim looking for a safe space.

GenX we are to cool to be boomers and don't care enough to be millennials.

Back in the day, Premium ammo could only be bought with gold. The term "gold ammo" followed and is still used to describe premium ammo.

The funny thing is that it was the Boomers who coined the phrase "Don't trust anyone over 30!"  when they were in their 20s.

We still believe that so nothing has changed. But we also don't trust anyone under 30 its called life experience verses foolish youthful nirvana.

As all said . The true thing when apcr special ammo in year 2012-2016 the game be more playable when people do pay gold for this ammo because are with rl money or game gold win  ..

 

people take time to play and not rushing everyone in team mate work..... 2017-2019 this year . Are all open for credite be good for the start i did think people can be smart for not spam this and using it for diferent tank cant pen. Sadly when are for credit people play bad and rush and only do mission and kill the game are suiciding . Todays none of player play with normal and stadar ammo are all presse 2 . Yes people can rage are tired of that ammo alway pen and rare can bounce for tier 4,5,6,7,8 for tier 9 and x well is diferent this ppeople are totaly a spamer of apcr tier 8 too are same . This game have no chalange people are rush and dying... with the time you will know welcome to world of tank  . If you not stress up

As long as it shows up gold then it will be called gold. They can change the colour to purple then it will be called purple ammo.

ROFL...so I guess those tanks equipped APCR in WW2 were "cheating":facepalm:. I bet EVERY tanker in WW2 wished he had an unlimited supply of APCR. :D
