What happens to a tie in the final round?

What happens if two players are tied for first place at the end of a daily tournament?

I understand how tiebreakers work. My question is what happens if both players have the same amount of points and for both? The only thing I have found is that both would advance, but what if it is the final round or if it is a single round tournament?

I hear the tie must be broken by a game full contact rock paper scissors.

That is not what I am asking. That explains several different tiebreaking options for FIDE tournaments. I am specifically inquiring about daily tournaments on chess.com.

In that case, both players would tie for first

Chess is a complex game and would not break ties by something as simple as Rock, Paper, Scissors.  At least look into using Rock, Paper, Scissors, Lizard, Spock.
