Perk Inventory

Gangster Nation Guide

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).

Perks

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:

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.

Insured

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.

Consumable perks

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:

  1. Any perks which are already partially consumed.
  2. Any perks which are transferable (i.e. not obtained in the Credit Store), smaller count first.
  3. Any perks which are non-transferable (i.e. those obtained in the Credit Store), smaller count first.
