I restarted a few games to see if there was a more efficient way to make money. You would think that acquiring as many properties as you can would be the way, but actually if you have too many they can become vulnerable to attack if you cannot upgrade them with the proper protection, and it takes money to invest in them.
How to make money quickly is to avoid obtaining properties or “holding” rackets, rather ransack as much as you can, and trade the loot with other bosses.
I guess it is true what they say, you need money to make money. This video guide shows you how I made 100k in 2 hours, which allowed me to fully upgrade 2 properties to max, plus I obtained epic weapons for me and a few crew members in the process.
I recommend skipping the tutorial because it will force you to “hire” crew members right away, which just is just a money sink in the beginning. Trust me you won’t need them for a while if you get a proper weapon.
Avoid taking over rackets because it costs money, instead focus on ransacking level 1-2 ratchets in order to maximize your loot chances, obtain extra cash, and then trade it to other bosses you meet along the way.
Avoid trading at the black market, at least don’t sell there because he will rip you off. Instead, build up trade rating with other bosses that will eventually result in even better deals and epic weapons. I was able to trade a green gun for an epic gun because of my rating with another faction. Don’t forget to also get your consumables from them.
Go to unknown territories to meet as many new factions as possible, and do a sit down with all of them, say yes to everything, be a suck up. What will happen is this will give you more factions to trade with to make money even faster, and eventually they will get jealous of each other, asking you to backstab other factions you have a relationship with, and do so by bribery of money, rare crew members, and even booze.
I am trying to compile a list of slang words or synonyms for money. Know any? Leave a comment below! 🙂
So far I have…
