The only way to be "profitable" with gold ammo is to have a premium account and run credit boosters.  Other than that, gold ammo is designed to lose you money if you fire it exclusively.

In low tier trash you might need to have good w/r to turn profit on prem spam. And if you (ab)use machineguns, then forget about income.

From tier 5 to 7 you should have profit on damaging premium shots even on defeat.

On tiers 8 it might depend on shell price (credits per damage) and tank (campers get halved income).

On tier 9 you'll need to have "positive" results to turn profit.

On tier 10 forget about profits.


You won't get your silver back if you'll waste your shot.

I know how you can lose money with GOLD/PREMIUM ammo.  Pz1c + premium will cost you 240,000 credits per game if you can empty your gun.   Used to be easier to do, but since they nerfed the RoF I don't think it can be done now.

It doesn't.

If you compare the difference between battles with zero premium rounds fired and battles with some amount of premium rounds fired, if you're careful with the math and honest with yourself what you'll find is that premium ammo loses credits. You may find a few individual battles in which premium rounds helped make more credits, but on average, at any level of skill (bad player, average player, good player) the premium ammo loses credits.


The point of premium ammo is not to make credits, it doesn't, it's learning when you want to use premium ammo even though it loses credits because it will help you perform better in some situations. Prem ammo is about performance, not profit.
