There are a number of special game events which happen during a round.
Mini events are short-lived daily occurrences in Gangster Nation. They happen at random, usually a few times per day. Due to the nature of these events, you'll have to act quick to take advantage of them. When one of these events occurs, a post will be made in Global Chat and the Activity Feed.
- Drug demand: The demand for drugs suddenly surges in a certain city.
- Bullet Store bonus restock: The Bullet Store in a certain city receives an extra restock of bullets.
- Safe surge: A safe (Crack The Safe) receives a sudden large deposit. The city chosen is always the city most recently cracked.
These events happen every round on the schedule shown below. The schedule is subject to change at any time but you'll receive an alert a few days ahead of a weekend event.
During a Double XP event all level points gained are doubled.
During a Bullet Rush event, the number of bullets stocked in each Bullet Store every hour is doubled.
During a Motor Madness event, the number of vehicles you see on Vehicle Theft increases from 6 to 10.
A contest to steal the most vehicles is also created.

Gangster Nation also has seasonal events throughout the year, you'll receive an alert ahead of the event. Here you'll find the current description of each event but this may change from year to year so be sure to check the guide again once the event is announced.
The Valentine's Day event runs on the 14th and 15th of February.
The following changes occur:
- The Love Bug car becomes available. It has a default Vehicle Theft chance of 100%.
- There's a contest with the aim to steal as many Love Bug vehicles as possible.
- There's a special mission: Double Trouble (tip: Butchie's ladies love shiny things)
- There's a special heist: Couple's Retreat (this heist is primarily to help you obtain items for the special mission, but does also earn you 30 level points per attempt)
The Halloween event runs from the 29th of October (start of day) to the 1st of November (end of day).
When the event starts you can head over to the Trick or Treat screen (in the top section of the menu) where you'll be able to claim your Skeleton Key.
The Skeleton Key is a perk giving you 30 minutes of 100% success chance on Vehicle Theft. The perk takes immediate effect once activated it, so you can activate it once you see something you like on Vehicle Theft.
All Skeleton Keys are non-transferable and insured. You can use the perk at any point during the same round and the key remains on your account through death if unused.
Trick or Treat
You can play Trick or Treat throughout the Halloween event. This appears on the Trick or Treat screen once you've claimed your Skeleton Key.
The Trick or Treat game presents 6 houses. You can Trick or Treat at one house each day to receive a treat. If you're on a smaller device (e.g. mobile) you should swipe left and right to see the houses. The event only lasts for 4 days so you can Trick or Treat on up to a maximum of 4 houses. On the last day of the event, after your final Trick or Treat, you get to see what treats you could have had on the houses you missed.
A special vehicle named 'Death Wagon' is available throughout the Halloween event.
The Christmas event runs from the 1st of December (start of day) to the 25th of December (end of day).
When the event starts you can visit the Christmas screen (in the top section of the menu) where you'll be able to obtain a free gift in the Christmas Giveaway every day from the 1st until the 25th of December. Everyone receives the same gift every day although if you miss a daily gift you won't be able to obtain it again later. Any perks obtained in the giveaway are uninsured and non-transferable, so you should use them as soon as possible!
You will also find Santa's Sleigh 5000 in the game during this period, a special fast vehicle worth over $600k.
