Networth is the (hidden) amount of money you’ve made from certain things in Torn City.

  • Networth is not the amount of money you have, nor the value of the possesions you own.
  • You gain Awards and Ranks by achieving a certain Networth. Please see the relevant pages for those figures.
  • There is no way to see your current networth.

Selling Items for networth

You can raise your networth quickly, for a price, by buying and selling items from shops.
This is because the sell value of any item you sell, from your inventory or to a shop (see table above), is added to your networth, making selling items a quick way to increase it. Remember that you will lose the difference in buying and selling price.

The following table shows the effectiveness of some popular items sold for networth:

Item Cost Sell Value Efficiency 1
Six-pack of Beer $ 200 $ 175 87.5 %
Flamethrower $ 3,000,000 $ 2,500,000 83.333 %
Peugot 106 $ 8,000 $ 6,500 81.25 %
Full Body Armour $ 75,000 $ 60,000 80 %
ArmaLite M-15A4 Rifle $ 20,000,000 $ 15,000,000 75 %
Riot Gear $ 10,000 $ 7,500 75 %


1 Percentage of cost returned when sold. Efficiency of Items bought from Big Al’s in the City can be increased with the Gun Shop Company Special (see Companies).

Feel dumb for asking this but – if I sold a gun to the shop, an then bought something, would I lose the net worth I gained from selling my gun?

Aerozol: Once networth has been gained it can’t be lost
so you can buy and sell things at will

Ok so i found the best way to make ur net worth go up and all u need is 300k

1. buy 30 riot gears from the gun shop
2. sell them all
3. repeat until u cant buy anymore

any amount of money would work but i realized that with buy doing that with just 300k u make ur net worth go up to 800k so if ur going for the rank triger this is a very easy way if u have the money.

bit dum i no but yano lol

how do u find out how networth you have got???

TCB: You can’t, it’s hidden, like your levelling exp.

@ All the people saying “I only just started and haven’t gotten any net-worth awards yet:”

The first award based solely on net-worth is The Apprentice Award which requires $1,000,000, the 2K, 50K etc. awards are rank triggers, meaning that every time you pass one, you will receive a rank increase, (like #1 Beginner, #2 Beginner, #3 Inexperienced etc.) meaning you still receive a Merit, but not in the Net-Worth category.

P.S: Don’t be surprised if you don’t receive your merit 3 and 1/2 seconds after selling the items, it can take hours, even days for Merits to register, so don’t complain about that here, I know for a fact that it is extremely irritating for Moderators, and don’t do it on TC either, for the same reason. Hopefully, this should prevent a few more monotonous posts on this tutorial.

okay i did an extensive test on networth well kind of extensive, but anyways….
as far as i know the money gained from crimes does not contribute to networth
if it did, i would have gotten to the 1 mil networth in a fraction of the time it took me
i’ve been keeping track of the things i’ve sold to the shops since the beginning and everytime i came up with the next rank trigger or award, that was when i ranked up (or got the award)
i literally watched my rank change to eight ten seconds after i sold a stealth virus taking me over 1 million

i could be wrong though :]

If you ask Darwin, however, it states that earnings in the Casino do count for the Networth tally…
(“For example winning in the casino, selling items from your item page or selling them back to the stores or docks”)
Is it outdated?

TCB: That information comes from TC staff. Of course, we can’t 100% confirm the information, regrettably.

does this work ?

TCB: Yes

If I buy things, does this decrease my networth? Or does it just increase?

TCB: Neither.

Distortion , March 09, 2008
so, if i buy item X from the market for £3,000,000
and then sold it in the shop for £1,500,000
would that increase my networth by £1,500,000 or decrease it by £1,500,000 ??

TCB: It increases by 1,500,000

I read the comments, but i have a question about mizzu’s comment. I bought the armour, but i could not sell it a big al’s. I can only sell it in my items. If i do this, will it still count towards my net worth? Thanks in advance

TCB: Yes, it will.

Superglen , May 10, 2008
I been doing some test and by test I mean buying items and selling them back to the store. I came to the conclusion that buying from stores also increases networth.

I had a $10million gap to get next trigger/ $20mil mark. I divided 10million by 60,000 because thats how much full body armour sells for. I subtracted an extra 720,000 left over stuff i solde from previous milestone. When you hit rank/trigger your rank changes instantly but award/ merits come hours later. Well I ranked up before even finishing. I still had to sell 53 items. I calculated how much I have spent and it was barely over $10 million. mind you I did this all in the same day because I just made $10mill milestone and I went for $20 million milestone and it ranked me prematurely. Now I’m going to do final test of getting to 50Million milestone. If I get it prematurely again this means buying adds to networth!! Also I started out with 3million dollars and expected money I planned on losing was 2.3million dollars. and I ranked while losing only 1.5mill

nick , June 06, 2008
Calculation error probaly, I got $50million milestone but It was from all selling. Sry :*(
nick , June 06, 2008
So, if you invested your cash in the bank for however long, would that money you got from investing go towards the networth and maybe give you a rank trigger?

TCB: Read the info on the page please.
