When deciding if you should purchase a new item, you must consider what other items you have in that category (guns, melee, armor, explosives, or vehicles), and whether your objective is to increase your offensive attack power, or your defensive score. It is tedious, but you will want to keep track of your top 500 items with our Crime City Equipment Tracker. Then, you can reference what is the highest score item that you can afford at your Crime City Player Level.
For reference, chose the Gold, Respect, and Money matrix listed below. These equipment item lists are sorted by BEST VALUE, meaning the highest attack or defense score per Gold Bar, Respect Coin, or Dollar, as indicated.
