Gold Nuggets are destructible objects that give experience points (EXP) to a player when it is destroyed. The player that deals the last bit of damage is the one that receives the EXP. Since the Christmas 2017 update, nuggets now show how much health they have after being shot.
There are 4 different levels of Gold Nuggets. They are different by size, location and EXP given. Level 1 nuggets are found only in the safe zone / No PvP Zone. Only players under level 10 can destroy nuggets in the safe zone. Outside the safezone players can find nuggets of level 2-4. Level 2 is the most common, level 4 is the most rare, and level 3 is in between.
Higher level nuggets yield more experience when destroyed, but the exact amount of EXP released varies. Higher level nuggets also take more damage to destroy. Below is a chart of averages gathered from playing. Direct link here
