The most precious item in Starve land!

Golden Bread was added in the Golden Bread Hunt update and is the premium currency of Starve.io.

How To Acquire

Golden bread is not a normal item you get in-game, however, it is an item directly correlated to the points system. For every 1000 points you get in-game, you will receive 1 golden bread when you die. (Note: if you get disconnected, the number of golden bread in your possession will not be revised accordingly as it is calculated on the death screen.) You can also get golden bread by purchasing it from the store, as well as 100 free golden bread when signing in for the first time.

When farming bread, please note that you can only get 500 bread in one game (500k points) and you are limited to 1 golden bread per minute. For example, even if you make 100k points in one hour, you would only get 60 golden bread for that hour. In addition, when you kill someone, you only get 1/6 of the player's points, but you also only get 1/3 of the golden bread from those points. For example, if you kill a player with 18k points, you only get one golden bread.

Another way to get golden bread is to level up. When you level up your account, you get (10 multiplied by your level) golden bread! You level up when you accumulate 40k times your current level, which is not affected by the 1K per minute limit. Because of this, you can indirectly farm golden bread by using certain high score tactics, such as killing sandworms. This extra golden bread is shown on the death screen as part of your total golden bread, and it is the only way to exceed the limits mentioned above.

Skin Spins

Also added in the Golden Bread Hunt update, spins are the golden bread's only use (besides a starter kit) and most, if not all players use their bread on them. There are two categories of spins, the Skin Spins and the Custom Spins which are further divided into three subtypes: Starter, Golden and Dragon. Skin spins will only output normal skins for your character and custom spins will only output book skins, bag skins, box skins, and accessories. Custom spins are half the price of a skin spin.

Dragon 600 Golden-bread.png 300 Golden-bread.png 0% 0% ??% ??% ??% ??%

The best value for wood skins is the starter spin, the best value for stone skins is the golden spin and the best value for the golden skins is the dragon spin. The best value for the diamond, amethyst and reidite skins is the dragon spin, with which you have the greatest chance of getting higher tier skins.

(Note that unless you want wood or stone skins, dragon spins are always of the best value and are very much worth saving up for.)

Starter Kit

Other than spins, the player can also buy a starter kit containing the essentials to help them get started with a new game. After buying the starter kit, players will spawn with a book and bag for either the next 1 hour or 24 hours, depending on how much golden bread the player spent on the starter kit.

It is generally not recommended to purchase the starter kit as the book and bag are relatively easy to get for seasoned players and as such the kit is a waste of golden bread. Golden bread is much better spent on skin and custom spins instead of the starter kit.


A way to farm Golden Bread would be to go AFK. This works because the game grants 500 points per day survived. However, it's not very efficient. 1 Golden Bread is 1000 points, and if someone was just standing there, they would only get one bread every 2 days (16 real-life minutes). A better way to farm Golden Bread would be to continually harvesting wood and stone (or better resources) while AFK. This can be achieved with an auto-clicker , or simply by pressing “ctrl/cmmd + t” while you are clicking and then delete the tab and you will have an auto clicker (just click again to reset).

If you have willing friends, you can get them to harvest crops you place, giving you the points and allowing you to do other things while farming points at the same time. Note that you will need to replant the crops every 8 minutes.

Another way to gather golden bread is by AFKing with an emerald machine, as it gathers lots of points daily, but it is recommended to build a fortified base for protection. Chrono Quests are also a good source of golden bread, since these earn you a lot of points when completed.

You can also play in the experimental gamemode Team Mode, where it is very easy to get high-tier resources such as amethyst and reidite and kill animals such as mammoths that give a lot of points when killed.
