ZCoin vs GP Edit
GP (Game Points), which are awarded for playing matches, can be used to buy all non-cosmetic items.
ZCoin can alternatively be used to purchase any item, short-cutting the need to accumulate GP.
However, almost all cosmetic items can only be purchased with ZCoin. Additionally, during Events there are some items that can only be purchased with ZCoin. These event items are often reskins of current existing items or new Camos.
