Ninjala's multiplayer mode is free to play, but there are a bunch of cosmetic items that you can either buy or earn. The majority of the skins you'll get will be Ninja Gum weapon cosmetics. If you've equipped a new skin you may find yourself unable to join a match, with a message popping up that reads 'One Unit of the Equipped Ninja-Gum Will Be Consumed Per Battle'. Here's what this means.

Ninjala: One Unit of the Equipped Ninja-Gum Will Be Consumed Per Battle Explained
If you get the message saying that Ninja-Gum Consumption is enabled before heading into a match, just press the X button to agree to the conditions. This will allow you to play online, but the weapon skin you are using will use Ninja-Gum units for each match. This essentially means that you can only play a couple of matches with each skin before it is lost forever.
Can You Add Ninja-Gum to Weapon Skins?
Each new weapon skin you get in Ninjala has a certain amount of Ninja-Gum and therefore uses. You cannot buy back uses for these skins, so can only use them a certain amount of times before they degrade. We recommend not using skins unless you're happy to lose them.
We'll be writing more guides (and a review) on Ninjala in the coming weeks. If you're struggling with anything in particular, let us know in the comments below.
