Gold Weapons are a new feature added in in Version 0.82. They do 10% more damage (after the version 0.83) and colors the Weapons gold. Gold weapons will be rewarded to the player if they get 5,000 resources while holding the weapon/tool. In version 0.84 the 10% increased damage rounds normally instead of down, for those that are not a multiple of 10. In version 0.891, their requirement was reduced from 10,000 to 5,000 resources and then to 3,000 resources. The arrival of Diamond Weapons (And Ruby later on.) made Gold Weapons much less viable.

How to get Gold Weapons

You must obtain a total of 3,000 resources (You don't have to currently have 3k resources, Ex. you could have eaten 1k food then you farmed 2k food and got the gold weapon) while you have the weapon in your hand. The gold you get from killing players doesn't count, but Wood, Food, Stone, and gold from a Gold Mine do.

Turret and spike mob kills count towards a gold tool, as long as you have the tool in your hand when the mob dies. This can be used to gain the golden variants of bows or the shield.

The Plague Mask's Poison killing an animal counts towards the gold tool too, but it's pretty hard to switch in last moment to get Shield in that way, so it is recommended to pit trap and spike/turret animals.

The resources that count toward getting gold weapons are as follows: All Mined Resources, Food from killing animals, and resources from destroying structures. The ones that don't count are Gold from killing players and Gold from killing Mobs.
