Hi guys i was away for awhile now that I've returned I've decided its about time my guide was published.
Mickey two toes has done well and his guide covers alot of information for new players starting out. Here is a link
however my guide covers item location PVP loot and building information such as defence and attack.
Another link to the crime city wiki http://crimecity.wikia.com
Firstly although i have been playing this game awhile I'm not an expert and alot of my information is my own so may not be correct if there is anything you don't agree with just say.
1 - Basics
2 - PVP Loot vs PVE Loot
3 - Items
how to determine an item
PVE Items and locations
PVP Items and list
7) Attack and Defense Skill
Why are high levels able to attack me
Right lets get this guide underway...
Pick Tycoon. enough said.
PVP loot vs PVE loot- loot from missions as we all know can be highly overpowered M4A1 and Machine gun, however i believe through reading through various peoples threads and my own experiences are that PVP loot comes at a much faster rate with the added bonus of respect and maybe money.
I personally prefer PVP loot but when i reach a higher level and have no issue with the rate I gain levels i will be farming certain missions for certain loot.
a lot of people post topics on items they wish to know the location of i will tell you the common answer to these questions and also the location of a few popular items will be later on.
Items are located all over the place the way to tell if they are gained from completing a Goal or a mission is simple. Goal items will be single items that cannot be obtained again eg Chefs Cleaver you can tell these items as they are normally average items that may not have a persons name there will only ever be one per person.
common items people want to know there location that are in this category are cars such as the Gaint, Manta Ray, Rampage and the Armored Car.
PVP Items here is a list of the items obtained through fighting other players.
the average rate of getting a PVP item is as follows although the real number is properly a little higher as for various clitches when i first joined the game where item loot wouldn't always show.
PVE items are normal items that various people with have multiple numbers of the item because they would of been farmed
Here are a few items along with there locations.
Funeral Hall (Graveyard)
Bumper cars (Boardwalk)
Titanium Guard Armor
Stone Hammer Melee
Def - 7
Boardwalk -shooting game
junkyard -blue dumpster

Vehicle - mustang A 6 D 4 Respect 125
Total A 32 D 27 Cost per Mafia - Respect 475 cost per 5 mafia Respect 1250
Whats the best thing to do with respect?
Personally i would spend it. what ever you do with it its important that you understand the gain you will receive from buying that item and the “real value” that item has for instance a tommy gun is worse then a sniper rifle which costs $150,000 and combat boots are basically the same as a swat helmet at $18,000.
I nearly always buy cars with my respect in order to max my attack and defense.
To get the most respect points for your stamina rob buildings such as meat factories, Clothing store, Lofts, and warehouses.
Attack pillage and rob to your hearts content but remember for every action there is a reaction!
Thanks to Tramp stamp the genius
.... there is a list of the income buildings along with there income per hour this was before the tycoon class was released but you get to see the basic idea of cost and POI.
My personal play style allows me to collect once every 3 hours as i have a young child who needs feeding every 3 hours and at work I'm able to check in my breaks.
I've recently invested in the 12 hour buildings cinema and loft were to good to turn down personally. Im trying to get to $50k per hour this means ill be earning just over £1,000,000 a day. which is my aim to be able to outfit my mafia well enough to compete later on.
Again here is another spreadsheet
People often dont bother with defense buildings however this is one of the reasons i win all the robbieries against me.
If you buy gold for anything buy bodyguard agencies these give 350 defence per one at level 7 i just brought 10 in the sale.... they offer much more bang for your buck then items.
Mod Mark once said that when you are robbed only half the defense of equipment is used however the full amount of defense from buildings is. therefore i have invested in alot of defense i have roughly 2500 at my level 55 with a mafia size of 150 this makes me virtually unattackable. yeah of corse with this game there is the random element where some people that have brought gold items can randomly beat me but thats fine with me.
