This screen is where you view and manage perks. Perks are mainly obtained from the Black Market, Credit Store and other gangsters (e.g. in the Auction House).
The perks tab shows the perks you currently own. The ring around a perk represents it’s status, a green ring means the perk is ready to use and an orange ring means the perk is partially consumed.
If you select a perk you’ll see a window with the following information:
- A description of your perk.
- Status: Whether your perk is currently activated, partially consumed or waiting to be used.
- Transferable: Whether your perk can be transfered to another gangster (which could be a direct transfer, through the Trade Center or through the Auction House).
- Insured: Whether your perk will be available on future gangsters during the current round, mainly applicable to perks bought from the Credit Store.
Buying and selling perks
If you need to buy or sell a perk, do so through the Trade Center or Auction House to ensure you’re not scammed. You should only transfer a perk directly to someone as a gift.
Transferable and non-transferable perks
Some perks such as those bought from the Credit Store, or acquired during special events, are non-transferable. This means you cannot transfer them to another gangster in any way, whether that be through a direct transfer or through a feature such as the Trade Center.
As soon as you activate or partially consume a transferable perk, it becomes non-transferable.
Some perks such as those bought from the Credit Store, or sometimes those acquired during special events, are insured perks. This means your perk will be available on future gangsters after death.
As soon as you activate or partially consume an insured perk, it’s no longer insured.
When consuming a perk such as Bulk Bullets or Mission Selector, should you have multiple of the same perk, the perks are consumed in the following order:
- Any perks which are already partially consumed.
- Any perks which are transferable (i.e. not obtained in the Credit Store), smaller count first.
- Any perks which are non-transferable (i.e. those obtained in the Credit Store), smaller count first.
