June 2019


  • Feature

    Added search and filter function to the Family Garage.

  • Change

    You can no longer message someone you've blocked.

  • Feature

    Family bosses can now configure a "welcome message" which is automatically sent to new family members upon joining. This can be set from the Settings tab of the Family Dashboard page.

  • Change

    The forums have been removed. This feature was rarely used in the past, players asked for them to be brought back and after a few years the forums were still rarely used - even within families. When the forums were used, it was usually to abuse another player (circumventing a block) or to post family rules (which can now be posted on the Family Notice Board).

  • Feature

    Added Notice Board to the Family Dashboard, an ideal place to post rules or mentor lists (can be edited by VIP+ on the Settings tab).

  • Change

    The Prison Busting mission now has 3 tiers of rewards - $50k for busting 10 inmates out, $200k for 25 inmates and $500k for 50 inmates.

  • Change

    The Level Points mission now has 3 tiers of rewards - $75k for gaining 100 level points, $200k for gaining 200 level points and $500k for gaining 400 level points.

May 2019


  • Change

    Family Bank Records has been renamed to Family Bank Ledger. The money and bullets ledgers have been separated, a balance added next to each record and the page made mobile friendly.

  • Bug Fix

    Fixed issue with 'Top Dog' accolade not being awarded.

  • Bug Fix

    Fixed issue where sending a fresh message (new conversation) to someone already in your conversation list would not show your previous message history.

  • Change

    The My Cousin Vinny mission has been replaced with a similar mission. The new mission asks for 3 vehicles but you can complete the mission successfully with just one vehicle. The amount paid is $100k for finding one vehicle, $500k for finding two and $1m for finding all three vehicles. The mission generates vehicles differently (uses the same random vehicle generator as Vehicle Theft) and no longer excludes vehicles already in your garage.

  • Change

    Added warning before visiting third party websites.

  • Change

    Family bank payouts are now even between all members. This is made on the basis that a player's level does not necessarily determine their rights within a family. A payout based on family position (Normal Member, etc) was considered but Higher Member+ positions usually have bank access anyway giving them access to additional funds if required.

  • Feature

    Add "Blown up vehicles" count to the Statistics tab in the Garage.

  • Change

    Deathmatch now runs for the last week of a round (8 deathmatch days instead of 10 deathmatch days).

    The "Heist Master" accolade now requires a 12,500 bullet haul for the Silver and a 20,000 bullet haul for the Gold.

  • Change

    Mission timer resets are now limited to 15 per day.

  • Change

    The Level Range requirement when killing has been moved back to Detectives from Open Fire. IF YOU JOINED GANGSTER NATION IN THE PAST YEAR, PLEASE NOTE THIS MEANS THAT ANY LEVEL PLAYER CAN SHOOT YOU IF THEY WITNESS YOU SHOOTING SOMEONE ELSE (considering removing witness detectives to counter this).

  • Change

    Detectives can no longer be hired by someone in protection or for a target in protection.

  • Change

    Detectives can no longer be transferred to another gangster.

  • Change

    The Game Guide has been revamped with a better interface and much more content (thanks to an anonymous player for most of the recent content contributions).

    The haul shown on the Bank Robbery and Delivery Heist statistics pages is no longer divided by 3/4, this makes comparison with the new stats on these pages easier (the haul is always the entire team's haul rather than your personal haul).

  • Feature

    Added Round Stats to the statistics tab on group crimes (BR/DH).

  • Feature

    Mentoring at Level 50 will now show the bullets/money in the confirmation message.

  • Change

    The number of level points received for making a kill is now double the number of kill points.

  • Change

  • Feature

    Added temporary "Hide History" option to the Overview -> History tab. This is designed for people who want to appear as a new player and are asked to screenshot this page as some kind of "proof". This will make people trust screenshots of this page less which is ideal anyway as any screenshot can be edited.

  • Feature

    Added vehicle capacity to the Chances tab of Vehicle Theft.

  • Change

    Removed random default kill messages as they caused confusion.

January 2019


  • Feature

    Added Bentley Bentayga and McLaren 720S.

  • Bug Fix

    Fix issue with push notifications automatically re-enabling after being disabled.

  • Bug Fix

    Added support for push notifications when mentioned in chat. Additional controls will shortly be added to the Preferences page to turn off/on different types of notifications. Please note this is not supported in Safari/iOS.

  • Change

    Removed full screen button. This was originally added for the Facebook app however most Facebook users are now playing in Facebook Gameroom. In a normal web browser, you can open the game in full screen via you browser's toolbar.

  • Change

    Made credit transfer warning more clear.

    Added sold vehicles stats to the garage.

  • Change

    Made credit transfer warning appear before every transfer.

  • Change

    The price of credits on the Android and Facebook apps has been increased by 20-25%. This is due to those platforms taking a 30% transaction fee which severely reduces the amount of the sale going towards supporting Gangster Nation in player acquisiton etc.

  • Feature

    Added Level % to stats bar on mobile.

  • Bug Fix

    Fixed bug with the message "0" failing to send in chat.

  • Change

    A new User Agreement has replaced the game rules. The rules surrounding posted content are slightly stricter, this is primarily to comply with our publishing partners (e.g. Google Play, Facebook) and to move towards the possibility of publishing an iPhone/iPad app in future (Apple are very strict as to what's acceptable in their App Store).

  • Change

    Profiles now show your rank out of all gangsters (dead and alive). This is to settle on all rankings across the game including dead gangsters (e.g. crime rankings, round rankings, etc). Profile rankings will now also be retained between rounds.

  • Bug Fix

    Made rankings mobile friendly.

  • Bug Fix

    RPS statistics tab now displays properly on mobile.

  • Feature

    Added Bounties Statistics tab showing most targeted gangsters and families throughout the round.

  • Feature

    Added Top Families to Small Crimes statistics.

  • Change

    Respect on family profiles now shows respect sent to current and past members while they were in the family (rather than the sum of the current member's respect counts). Importantly, respect sent within the family no longer counts towards a family's respect count. A bar has also been added to show the respect to disrespect ratio.

  • Feature

    Added Top Respected Families and Top Disrespected Families to the Respect statistic page (excludes points sent within the same family).

  • Change

    Respect is no longer removed at the end of a round, so you will be able to see respect from all rounds after this one.

  • Feature

    Show how many times a vehicle has been tuned when viewed in the Auction House on mobile.

  • Feature

    Added Top Families and Most Stolen Vehicles to the Vehicle Theft statistics tab. Please note that the Top Families stat has only recently began recording, so it won't be accurate for the current round.

November 2018


  • Change

    In response to player feedback, the final Double XP of the round has been moved from the 13th week to the 14th week. It will also now only last for 24 hours rather than 54 hours. Please note these changes don't apply to this round as events are all automatically pre-scheduled at the beginning of the round.

  • Feature

    Added the Lamborghini Urus - you couldn't have GN without the new lambo SUV!

  • Change

    The RPS Open Game tab has been merged with the main tab to make it easier to take part in continuous rounds of RPS.

    Private RPS games are no longer available.

  • Change

    Simplified All Families view, made more similar to the mobile version.

  • Change

    It's now against the rules to share other player's personal details (such as full name, telephone number or address) without their permission. This is due to various cases of bullying where a player's telephone number is shared etc.

October 2018


  • Bug Fix

    Fixed All Families display on mobile.

  • Feature

    Butchie now posts in your family chat when someone leaves the family.

    Fixed bug in kill when two players 'match' and only health is knocked off one person.

    Emojis can now be used in respect and mentor transfer messages.

  • Change

    The Times now uses the same simplified YouTube code as profiles.

  • Feature

    Implemented early stages of family war feature. At this stage, the feature only informs the two families when they enter war and when the war is complete. A war begins when one family member kills someone in another family without a silencer. A war is complete by a family being dropped/closed (the standing family wins the war) or a cease fire for 24 hours (the family with the most kills wins the war). Only unsilenced kills count towards wars.

  • Change

    Implemented 1 second delay on Vehicle Theft "Look for more vehicles" button to prevent double clicks.

  • Change

    You will now only witness a kill when in the same location as the killer.

  • Change

    Removed non-tracking Witness Statement, this served no purpose as it was only sent out for non-silenced kills which everyone can now see.

September 2018


  • Change

    Improved Personal Record area of Vehicle Theft Statistics page.

  • Change

    Death processing (e.g. dropping families, changing bosses, sending alerts) is now done immediately rather than within 60 seconds of the death.

  • Feature

    Butchie will now post in main chat when someone is killed. He will also post in your family chat if a member is killed, or if one of your members kills someone outside the family (unless the kill was made silently).

  • Feature

    The killer is now specified where possible (i.e. non-silencer kills) in family updates, family alerts and detectives alerts in relation to someone being killed.

  • Bug Fix

    Fixed issue with revealing kills.

  • Feature

    Butchie will now post in your family chat when someone is invited to the family, joins the family or is kicked from the family.

  • Feature

    A message can now be added when transferring a vehicle.

  • Feature

    Prison Bribes are now stolen when killing someone.

  • Change

    It's now against the rules to play from two devices simultaneously. This method has been increasingly used to create an unfair advantage, e.g. tapping the Slot Machine on one device while tapping Prison Busting on another. To help combat this, a new system will prevent multiple devices playing a single account during a 60 second period.

  • Change

    The legacy mobile interface is no longer available. This means more time to work on the game without having to maintain a separate version of the code!

  • Change

    Removed Emoji link from chat - most devices now have built-in emoji selectors. To learn how to use the Emoji selector in Windows 10, see here: https://blog.getemoji.com/emoji-keyboard-windows

  • Feature

    Added image upload feature to chat.

  • Feature

    Menu items which have a timer now show the actual time remaining when hovering over.

  • Bug Fix

    Fixed "Use Profile" on mobile.

  • Bug Fix

    The Android app has been updated to address a couple of small bugs. The app now requires Android version 6.0 and up, but if you're on a lower version of Android you can still play using Google Chrome (tip: use the "Add to Homescreen" option in the Google Chrome menu).

  • Bug Fix

    Fixed Facebook app login for new players.

  • Bug Fix

    Fixed value/cost on Vehicle Theft statistics page.

  • Bug Fix

    Fixed Auction House interface on mobile.

  • Feature

    Added streak to success message after stealing a vehicle.

    Stop family bank distribution of $1 per member when distribution is set to 0%.

    Fixed menu icons for Roulette, Updates and Notepad.

    Added Ford GT to the vehicle pool.

  • Feature

    Added Garage Statistics page showing some information on crushed vehicles.

  • Change

    Increased the base Vehicle Theft chance from 5% to 10% - double the chance of stealing a vehicle on your first attempt! Let's see how this goes.

  • Bug Fix

    Fixed stat bar swiping on mobile. In turn, the swipe buttons have been removed but if there's demand to keep those they can be brought back.

  • Change

    Replaced 'Most Common Vehicles' stat on Vehicle Theft with 'Top Streaks'.

  • Feature

    Added option to look for more vehicles on Vehicle Theft.

  • Feature

    Added Vehicle Theft streaks, build up your streak to lower your wait time - useful when ranking.

  • Change

    Removed the original Vehicle Theft version, now running only Vehicle Theft Beta.

  • Bug Fix

    Fixed link to profile in alert when transferring detectives.

  • Change

    Rewritten how level points are multiplied during Deathmatch and Double XP. This means that points are now multiplied immediately upon earning them rather than once per minute. It also means that mentors will display the multiplied number, so it's no longer necessary to double the price per point during Double XP. Cleaning up this code will open the doors for us to potentially execute on some new interesting ideas in future.

  • Bug Fix

    Fixed bug where level points would be multiplied by 100 for the entire last day of the Deathmatch. As per the guide, this should have been 50x level points until the last 2 hours where points are multiplied by 100.

  • Change

    Implemented chat, forums and messaging bans to help moderate the game in a more fair and effective way. An admin kill of a Level 50 is not equal to an admin kill of a Level 5, so it made no sense to take such action in response to inappropriate messages. Instead we can now issue temporary or permanent communication bans, which makes the punishment equal for all players. This also prevents players from picking who to report for inappropriate messages in order to "have them admin killed". Admin kills will be reserved for cheating (duping, scripting).

  • Change

    Replaced 'Rarest Thefts' statistic on Vehicle Theft Beta with 'Top Gangsters'.

  • Change

    Removed Level 50 detectives tip off.

  • Feature

  • Feature

    Implemented cap on Scratch & Win resets.

  • Feature

    Added "Refill Now" button to Scratch & Win to make it clear this feature exists, as quite a few players were surprised to find this existed at the beginning of Round 16 despite it being in place (and unchanged) for a number of years.

  • Feature

    Added 'Lock' function to the garage to prevent quick fingered players from accidently selling, crushing vehicles etc. This also means that 'selecting' a vehicle now requires the use of the checkbox in the bottom left corner.

  • Feature

    Unrevealed kills made on previous gangsters can now be revealed.

  • Feature

    Unrevealed kills made on previous gangsters are now visible to the account holder when visiting the gangster's profile.

April 2018

    Added "Send back" option to extortion. It's not recommended to send money back to anyone, even your friends, but as so many do this anyway the option has been brought back by request!

  • Bug Fix

    Fixed issue with removing Roulette bids (setting to "0" would result in an error).

  • Feature

    Added "Session Profit" to the Roulette table.

  • Bug Fix

    Fixed bug in Roulette enabling an unlimited supply of money on a certain bet combination. Recovered the bulk of the falsely generated funds from two players who made use of this bug.

    Added Roulette.

March 2018

  • Bug Fix

    Fixed Forums display on mobile beta.

  • Bug Fix

    Fixed Blackjack display on mobile beta.

  • Bug Fix

    Fixed Family Banking display on mobile beta.

  • Bug Fix

    The minimum time a family must be active for before distributing bullets has been reduced to 1 day during Deathmatch.

  • Feature

    Implemented 3 tier backfire system, enabling you to choose different amounts of backfire for the first, second and third attempts on your life.

  • Change

    Remove minimum level requirement for each Vehicle Theft location.

  • Change

    Level 50 is now 100k points (lowered slightly for a more round figure).

  • Change

    Removed the slight randomness from kill scoring, meaning a scenario which involves the same variables (same level, same amount of bullets, same firearm, same health) on each side, will always yield the same exact result. Due to the nature of how our killing system works (figuring out the opponent's backfire, etc) it's not necessary to have the random element and it can only cause confusion or odd results (e.g. a situation where a shooter would die in backfire when overshooting by only a small amount).

  • Bug Fix

    Made some optimisations to the Slot Machine Statistics tab due to this page loading extremely slowly (previously 10-15 seconds, now under half a second).

  • Bug Fix

    Fixed header image on the Overview page.

  • Bug Fix

    Fixed issue when editing article of The Times.

  • Change

    Removed automatic name generation for new players, a name must always be chosen before entering the game.

  • Change

    A witness statement is no longer sent for a backfire kill. This behaviour is no longer required because backfire kills are public these days (e.g. on the Open Fire statistics tab and profiles).

  • Change

    The family garage can now be upgraded to hold 50 vehicles.

  • Change

    Removed Silent vs Gangland kills, replaced with Silencer which costs $500,000. This works the same way as a silent kill previously but guarantees no witnesses (rather than an awkward low chance of a witness). This change has been made to simplify the system and slightly discourage silent kills, it's a revival of how Open Fire worked in a previous version.
