The Golden Friend is a reskin of the Simple Machine Gun. However, it does have many differences, one being that the Golden Friend sports an animated golden camouflage. There is also an added 4x scope on the top of the weapon and a laser sight under the weapon's barrel with a green laser protruding from it.
This weapon has a high rate of fire, but deals incredible damage even for higher leveled players, has a fair capacity for the type of weapon it is and has good mobility.
- Aim for the head to maximize the damage of this weapon.
- This weapon is incredibly accurate, back off to avoid anyone attacking back.
- The high mobility can be used by outmaneuvering the enemy at a close range.
- If you want this weapon to be even more efficient, use the maximum upgraded Storm Trooper Cape, and the Burning Tiara and get headshots.
- Jump and run around to avoid getting hit by too many shots while trading blows with an SMG or rifle.
- Alternatively, this weapon deals low damage per shot, so charge the user with a close-range weapon, such as the Photon Shotgun or the Shotgun Pistol.
- Avoid fire from this weapon by taking cover behind an object or by fleeing from the user while using a weapon with a high fire rate.
Almost all maps.

- The Golden Friend is one of the four weapons exclusive to the Lucky Chest, the others being the Candy Baton, the Power Claw, and the Spark Shark.
- As with its regular counterpart, the Golden Friend is based on the real world Heckler & Koch MP5A2, as evidenced by the weapon's fixated stock.
- Despite this weapon being a reskin of the Simple Machine Gun with modified statistics and an added scope, this is the only golden skin weapon that cannot be purchased through leagues.
- There are also numerous other weapons with golden skins, but they have a "different kind of gold", which is the gold that does not shine, such as the "Predator".
- This may be an oversight from the developers because the Simple Machine Gun was originally called "Best Friend".
- This gun got buffed in the 12.5.3 update .
