Gangster Nation Guide

In Gangster Nation, you compete in a multi-player, online world as you build your own criminal empire. The game is free to play on any mobile, tablet or laptop device. While easy to pick up, it offers a deep and engaging experience as you navigate the complex world of gang families, politics and warfare.


To progress in the game, you must increase your level by earning level points. There are 50 levels in the game, with each one becoming more challenging as you level up. You can view your current level and progress in the stats bar.

To earn level points, attempt crimes and tasks found in the "Crime Scene" menu. Your total level points can be viewed in the "Overview" window. For more information about each level, see the Levels page.


In Gangster Nation, you can earn money by completing crimes and other activities, such as gambling in the casino. Your money is divided into two main balances: cash and bank. Your cash balance is at risk of being stolen by other players, while money in the bank is generally safe. It is advisable to keep most of your money in the bank and only withdraw cash when you need to spend it.

The range of money you have in cash and the bank is visible to other players on your profile. If you have a large amount of money, you may become a target for other players to attack. To avoid this, it is recommended to invest your money in other assets, such as bullets.


In Gangster Nation, bullets are a crucial asset because they allow you to defend yourself against other players. You can view your bullet count in the stats bar.

Never share your bullet count. It is important to keep your bullet count private because it makes you an easier target if other players know how many bullets you have. Even if you trust someone, it is best to give them a false number.

Do not give away bullets in exchange for protection. Nobody can protect you from being killed, and giving away your bullets only makes you weaker. Instead, focus on stocking bullets.

You can stock bullets in several ways:

It's a good idea to aim for a large bullet stock. Good players have over 100,000 bullets, while the best players have over 1,000,000 bullets.


In Gangster Nation, players can shoot and kill each other, but it is not easy to do so. If you are killed, you will have to start over, but you can use Life Insurance to protect some of your assets.

As a new player, you start with 5 days of protection, during which time you cannot be killed. To increase your chances of survival, follow these tips:

  1. Stock as many bullets as possible.
  2. Upgrade your firearm when possible (from the Black Market).
  3. Avoid making enemies at first. You won't be shot unless you give someone a reason to.
  4. Purchase Life Insurance just before your protection ends.

Once you have more experience, you can learn how to shoot other players from the Shooting screen.


In Gangster Nation, a family is a group of players who work together to achieve common goals, such as protecting each other and earning money.

To join a family, you must be invited. You can ask existing members of a family for an invite, but this is often seen as annoying. A better way to join a family is to make friends and level up, as a friend may eventually invite you to join their family.

Never pay anyone to join a family. This is a common scam.

You can start your own family, but it is expensive, and as a new player, you are likely to be targeted and killed just for the sake of the person who kills you being able to claim that they "dropped" a family. For more information about starting families, see the All Families page.


Gangster Nation is organized into rounds, which last for about 4 months each. Ten days before the end of each round, you'll receive an in-game alert. At the end of a round, the game is reset and all players start fresh. This gives both new and experienced players a chance to compete for the top spot and achieve new goals. By playing in rounds, Gangster Nation stays fresh and competitive.


Credits are the premium currency in Gangster Nation. You can purchase credits through the Credit Store to support the game and spend them on various upgrades. You do not need to purchase credits to enjoy the game, most players don't buy them for real currency. You can also buy credits from other players in the Auction House.
