MSF: Gold Rush

Scopely recently introduced several new tiers to MSF’s Gold Rush Challenge for players to complete to earn valuable rewards

On Friday, 12 January 2024 Marvel Strike Force’s developer announced that if players are looking for more Gold to help increase character levels, they can participate in a new Gold Rush challenge.

This recent update also introduced additional Tiers for the Gold Rush challenge.

The Gold Rush challenge essentially awards players with a fixed amount of Gold and Gold Orb Fragments, but it is only available on Mondays, Thursdays and Sundays.

Unlike other game modes in MSF, you can only use City Characters to complete the Gold Rush Challenge.

This means that new players are likely to use Defender characters and although you will be able to complete the first few tiers with Defenders, stronger characters are required to complete the higher tiers.

Even Although there are numerous City characters that you can use to progress through Gold Rush’s tiers, some characters will clear the challenges faster than others.

We therefore recommend that you use the following characters when you have collected them:

  • Anti-Venom (White Tiger if Moon Knight is in a team)
  • Scream
  • Venom (Moon Knight if Anti-Venom is not available)
  • Carnage
  • Spider-Man (Symbiote)

In addition to only using City characters, every tier has some recommendations to ensure that you complete the tier successfully.

Although it is not mandatory to use the recommendations, they will help you earn as much gold as possible to purchase supplies and improve your characters.

Once you have acquired enough Gold, you can open your character collection and select the character that you want to rank up.

Players have to click on the “Rank Up” option which can be found in the bottom right corner of the screen to complete the process.


Every Tier in the Gold Rush Challenge has specific recommendations that will ensure that you complete the level successfully.

The table below lists some of the recommendations that you will encounter:
