Finding and Using Weapons Before you attack you’ll want to have some weapons equipped. Each weapon multiplies your strength by a certain amount, determining how much damage you deal. Each armour multiplies your defence, determining how much damage is removed from your opponents attack. The most important element of attacking is therefore your attack stats. Please read the Training/ Stat tutorial for more information. You can attack without weapons, using your fists, but they have the lowest multiplier. You can view information on each weapon by clicking on [info] or the weapon image. As shown in the image below, there are a number of elements that should influence your choice of weapon or armour. The most expensive weapon isn’t always the best weapon!

Click on any images to view a larger picture

The coloured bars are an indication of the weapons accuracy and damage (multiplier).If your having trouble beating people because you can’t hit them, as well as training speed, you might consider getting a weapon with better accuracy. The same applys to damage, if you’re not dealing enough to defeat your opponent. Rate of fire and clip size is related to Ammunition, explained in the next section. Take a look before you buy a weapon. Just because you can afford a weapon doesn’t mean you’ll be able to afford to use it! Defending doesn’t use any ammunition, and only randomly reloads, so if you’re not attacking you can take advantage of this factor. Weapons can be bought from Big Als in the City straight away, from overseas once your level 15, or from other players in the Markets or Trading Forum. You can only sell items back to the shop for less than you bought them for, so watch out for cheaper items from other players.

When you find the weapon(s) you want to use, click the [equip] or the ‘Not Equipped’ link next to it in your Items page to equip the weapon. If you are using a primary or secondary weapon you still need to buy ammo! Once they’re equipped their images will appear under your house in your Home page. Note: Go here for weapon locations and prices, and here for weapon multipliers. There is also a Weapon and Armour stat table that summarizes all weapons, their accuracy, damage, rate of fire, price and location. Find it in our Tools & Calculators page . Back to Top

Ammunition As mentioned above, ammunition is required for any Primary or Secondary weapon. Defending from an attack doesn’t require ammunition. To buy some ammunition, click on the link to ‘> Ammo Locker’ in your Items page. Click it, and you will be brought to a screen that displays all weapons you have equipped that use ammunition. Click on ‘Clips’ next to the gun that you wish to purchase ammo for to be given the options for that gun. Here you can buy clips, or unload and sell clips. You can’t sell clips once bought. Just click on ‘> Buy some clips of ammo for this gun’ to buy clips, and click on ‘Load’ to load the gun. If you want to unload it again, click ‘Unload’. If you have little ammo left for a gun after a fight, it might be better to just throw out what’s left, and reload, instead of having to reload in the next battle. If you’ve run out of clips you will automatically reload at the end of a battle. Rate of fire and clip size on your Weapon info page are an indication of how often you might have to reload. Reloading takes a turn, or you can reload your weapon in the item screen after a battle. Some weapons have only one shot, some may last over many battles. Under the clip image is the clip price. This, combined with clip size and rate of fire, will give you an indication of if you can afford ammunition for your chosen weapon. Back to Top

Finding someone to Attack There are a few ways to find someone to attack. The most common reason for attacking is through you Faction, once you join one. Take a look at who your peers are attacking or who is attacking them. Also if your faction is currently in a war go to your Faction page and click “[Faction War Base].” Another tactic to find people that you can attack is by searching the forums. In the forums you can see who is what level and what their ID is. This is valuable if your are attacking by levels. Also if you are a donator (You’ve used a Donator Pack) you may do an advanced search. – Click Search – Click Advanced Search – Enter some info. Remember all fields are optional so not all of them need to be filled out After you’ve found someone, make sure you can beat them, so you don’t have any nasty surprises. Remember that it’s possible to hold level! This means that someone has been able to [upgrade] level for some time, but has chosen not to to hide their strength. The most common indicators to determine if you will be able to win a fight are these: Current property If their House is better than yours, be wary. This is an indication of how much money they have. A rich player will most likely have good stats. Age If a person is older than you this means they’ve had time to build their stats up more than you have. Level This usually isn’t the best thing to base your judgement on. Many people could have a high level, but low battle stats, and vice versa. Rank Be careful when attacking anyone higher than your own rank. This could indicate things like better weapons, stats, etc. Crimes Crimes is the best indicator of someones activity. More Crimes means more activity, and better stats. Associates/ Factions  If they are in a very powerful faction, or have powerful friends, even if you beat them, you may face retaliation. Most people only take hospitalisation or mugging seriously enough to retaliate (see Post Battle options). Back to Top

Attacking Attacking costs you 50 energy, unless your under the influence of Vicodin (see the Drugs page), in which case it costs 25 energy. If you’re in a battle and someone else kills your opponent, which halves the energy cost. If your opponent boards a plane to another country, escaping your attack, you will lose 25 energy To attack someone, click [Attack] under their profile image in their profile page. If you wait too long between attacks, or deciding what to do after your attack, it may ‘time out’. If it times out you don’t lose any energy. After this stage make sure you don’t view any other TC pages during the battle, or refresh the page! If you do, you will be presented with the following screen, the fight will be ended, and you will lose your 50 spent energy:

This is the Combat screen:

Displayed is you and your opponents names and health, above an illustration of their skeleton, used to illustrate hit and miss locations. In the center is shown the results of the last round of battle (the coloured text in the center). At the bottom your equipped weapons and their ammunition is shown (if applicable), and at the bottom, the option to run away. If this is your first attack you will first have to load your primary and secondary weapons, if you want to use them. It will use 1 turn to reload a secondary weapon, but a primary weapon will reload by the following turn. After that, click on the item you would like to attack with. After this you will be shown the result of the round, in which your opponent will attack with a random weapon (or reload), and you will be shown the damage of both your attacks, unless you miss. Damage is based on your Weapon and Strength, minus their Armour and Defence, and hitting or missing is based on your Speed and Weapon vs their Dexterity. The same is true for their damage and accuracy against you. View the Attacking/ Stats tutorial for more information. Every now and again , around 5% of your hits, you will get a critical hit. These always hit, and deal about 3x normal damage. You can upgrade the chance by 1% by spending Merits . Hitting them in different locations deals different amounts of damage. This is random (?). The following images show all possible attack locations:

If you select ‘> Try to run away’ you’ll escape the battle.

Attacking in Groups If you’re having trouble defeating a difficult opponent, you and your friends can team up to fight them Everyone will lose 25 energy, but the person who lands the finishing blow will lose 50 energy. When multiple people are attacking, the defender defends against each attacker as usual. This message is displayed when others are also attacking:

The winner will get the same options as usual (see the below section), while the other attackers will get this message:

Back to Top

Post Battle Options Once you win you’ll be presented with this screen:

Here’s a quick breakdown of what each does: Note: You can leave this screen up for up to 5 minutes without making a decision! During this time they will have no health and wont be able to attack anyone. After this, the attack will time out. Leave Them – This gives the most  exp of any attack. – No cash is given for this and the amount of time your enemy spends in the hospital is typically around 20 – 25 minutes. – You can not chain by leaving someone on the ground – This attack typically does not drive people to strike back in retaliation Search their wallet – In addition to giving cash, this attack gives a little bit of exp. – Hospital time averages out around 15 – 30 mins. – It is possible to chain a faction by mugging their members. You will receive ~75% respect in comparison to hospitalizing. Mugging no longer counts for chains. – People don’t like getting mugged, but if they don’t have much cash taken they usually don’t retaliate

Hospitalize them
– Attacking this way yields no cash and no exp – Hospital time is typically 10 times that of mugging. Using merits can extend this amount of time anywhere from an extra 5 minutes upto an extra 50 minutes. – This is the most common way to chain a faction. Attacks can yield anywhere from 3 – 6 respect each at present time. Your target’s level helps determine the amount of respect gained. – Most people retaliate to being hospitalized (hosped) if they can. If they are unable to often their friends might. Recap If you select ‘Recap’ you will be shown a screen showing you all of the battles turns and outcome. You can save this url and send it to other people to show and save battles.
If someone attacks you, you will also get the chance to review the battle. This is an example of a battle log (change the numbers at the end to view a random battle!):

Things to remember You need 50 energy to attack a person. This can be halved by using the drug Vicodin, however when you use any drug your str is lowered about 10 – 15% for the duration of the drug’s after effect. There are various drugs, a few of which have influence over combat. See their descriptions Here. Stats are the biggest part of attacking. Use the Training and Stat guide for all information related to stats. If you run out of ammo in a fight, fists only do a small amount of damage! So use a melee weapon instead. When you lose a fight, you get hospitalized! The same thing happens if you try to run away from a fight and fail. This yields no respect for your enemy’s faction if you are in a war with them. Don’t blame Fozzi.

Now is there any way whatsoever to control whether it states hosped by someone or saying your name? Aerozol: From the training tutorial: ” Dexterity: Dexterity affects how well you dodge your opponents attacks. It also helps your stealth, if they see you attack them, or if you see them attack you.”

Attacking the same person over and over does the same amount of good as different, but equally difficult, opponents. You get more experience for the higher level you attack, so you always want to find someone at a higher level than you to beat on. Unfortunately, if you do this to someone who is still playing the game and they have strong friends, you might be in for a beating yourself. The ideal repeated target is very high, weak, and inactive. Some players have lists of “good targets” like this that are found once in a while, but beware! Other players may also be pwning these guys often, which would leave you in the hosp if your luck runs out.

Melee weapons might be more worthwhile than they first appear. First, they don’t use any ammo. Second, they are the most accurate (followed by secondary, followed by primary) …this equates to an improved “speed” multiplier, whereas a primary-weapon focused strategy bulks your strength and expects you to bring your own speed. Finally, compared to secondary and primary weapons, getting a great melee weapon (like the kodachi swords or even a Yas) is relatively cheap.

Have you ever noticed that staff members have jacked up crazy stats? I tried ti mug a staff ember that was a level 26 and it said I got hit for over 300,000 damage on the first blow. So careful out there when you run across a staff member and you think they are easy prey.

I successfully committed the past five crimes. I then attacked someone two levels lower than me. I just noticed that my nerve went down from 38 to 33. The only explaination I can see is that attacking someone lower than you reduces your experience. Has anyone else had that happen?

I’m just curious what the group consensus was on mugging vs leaving them. How much money makes it worth the lower experience. Any idea how much lower the experience is for mugging than leaving them? I know these are hard questions to answer and up to personal preference but I’m just looking for feedback.

With mugging I’ve noticed weird results. Sometimes I’ll get nothing and others I’ll get anywhere from $5,000-$20,000. These are people that haven’t signed on in months so I know they didn’t spend their money or anyhing. Is that part of the algorythm or a glitch or something? Ideas?

i want to attack my freind but his ip is close to mine so i can’t attack him wath should i do TCB: If you have logged in on a friends computer you can no longer interact with them in any way, or you may be jailed for multis. This also counts if your regional internet gives you the same ip as someone else.

How do people become unconcious and what does it mean someone just got out of the hosp like an hour before and when i tried to attack them it said they were unconcious… do u have to wait for a period of time when someone gets out of the hosp to attack them again?

I notice when I’m attacking others that even though they have a melee weapon, sometimes they’ll defend themselves with their fists. Presumably this is because there is a random chance of a player defending themselves with primary, secondary or melee weapon (and they don’t have all 3). Can anyone confirm this?
