Black Market

Gangster Nation Guide

The Black Market is where you can buy and sell various products.


Products are grouped by the asset needed to buy them (Money, Hustle Coins, Prestige Coins).

Any inventory item bought in the Black Market is non-transferable except for the Daily Special.


Daily Special

The Daily Special offers a choice between two random perks and a third option, the "Mystery Perk". The "Mystery Perk" option enables you to buy another unknown perk for a fixed price of $400,000. The Mystery Perk could turn out to be poor value or good value, so you should only use this option if you're happy to take a gamble. Perks bought in the Daily Special will appear in your inventory and are transferable.

Prison Bribes

You can buy 10 Prison Pribes once per hour for $150k. Each prison bribe will enable you to leave prison immediately.

Firearm upgrade

You should always upgrade to the latest firearm when one is available in the Black Market. This gives you a better chance of survival in a shoot out, whether you shoot on someone else or they open fire on you.

The firearms available are:

Garage upgrade

The garage upgrade enables you to increase the maximum amount of vehicles your garage can hold. You can upgrade in 5 car steps with each upgrade costing more than the previous. The largest garage you can have is 100 vehicles.
