Resources play a major role in Battle Pirates, as they are used in nearly every aspect of gameplay. There are four main resources (Oil, Metal, Energy, and Zynthium) and one bonus resource (Coins).
Oil is the most common resources, Oil Rig and therefore the least valuable. Oil is used most prominently in the research and construction of hulls and the upgrading of buildings , but is also used otherwise. Oil is quickly produced by Oil Rigs at your base and by oil wells which can be commonly found at any level on the Map. Capturing an oil well gives your Oil Rigs an extra production bonus and can give you captured oil.

Metal is the second rarest resource to Zynthium, and has a wide variety of applications. It is prominently used in upgrading buildings and researching weapons and armor , but has many more applications. Metal deposits are often contested for because of both the rarity of the mineral, and the many applications it has.

Energy is the second most common resource to Oil. Energy is often used in great amounts, and sees a wide array of applications. Wind Turbines generate Energy, and are tied with Oil Rigs for the highest resource production rate.

Zynthium is the rarest of all resources in Battle Pirates, meriting the small requirements building, upgrading, or researching has for it. In the original alpha version of Battle Pirates, Zynthium was called 'Platinum', but was renamed by Paul prior to the public beta being released. On the Map, Zynthium deposits are fairly rare and generally appear at high levels only around Draconian Bases. Smaller Zynthium deposits occur at aroundthe same frequency as Oil Wells, Wind Turbines, and Metal Deposits.

Coins can be used to finish building, researching, upgrading, and repairing, as well as filling up resource levels. Normal players start with 1,200 coins, but alpha testers start with 2,000 coins as thanks for their hard work. Although no method of getting more coins has yet been revealed, it is expected that a system similar to the one in Backyard Monsters will be implemented. Whether or not free coins (to parallel free Shiny) will be added and in what manner is still questionable.
