  • Farming, Mining, Brewing, and Logging all require a specific Tool to be in the inventory to work.

Some hobbies are currently NOT on the Map or Legend. This is intentional. We want to finish them completely before we add them. For now, ask in RP where to find the locations.

Illegal activities

Some Illegal activities are NOT on the Map or Legend. This is intentional, RP to discover all the content that is available for Criminals.

  • Specific Crime Skill level required to unlock
  • Stealing Vehicles: Steal any car to hide, blend in, or move cargo discreetly.

Criminal activities

Progression system in Criminal RP. Crime skill unlocks more content as you climb your way through the ranks of crime.

  • Running Weed is meant to be the second most quiet/subtle for of Criminal RP.
  • Get creative with Weed RP! Weed has the additional benefit of increasing health when smoked. Use this to your advantage if you run Weed. Example: Sell individual joints for more than what the Dealer will pay, but less than the price of White Pills. If done right, this could turn into a profitable side business for those who want a cheaper alternative to White Pills.
  • Remember; Skills matter! Get the most return on Weed by maxing out your Skills. Find out in game what each one does.
  • Store Robberies: These are the next step up in Criminal RP. There is an immediate risk since PD is alerted to the location. However, if you are able to get away then the risk is rewarded by increased payouts and an opening to Meth/Coke runs.
  • Bank Robberies are the next level of Criminal RP. Pulling these off is TOUGH. Coordination and teamwork are key in order for Criminals to pull these off successfully.
  • Heists are for the best Criminal crews in Los Santos. They require exploration and knowledge of the city to find the required items to start the Heist. In addition, they require planning and coordination to execute successfully. The rewards are exclusive items not found anywhere else in the city.
  • There are additional, smaller Criminal options: mugging, and hacking. Incorporate these into your RP to help build your criminal organization. Get creative with these options
  • Finally, Remember to work together! This will always result in Players making more money. This is intentional, so that the server will RP together. It is possible to make money doing work alone, but we reward those who work as a team with more money.
