Being the worst player in multi-player, or not beingcontinue →
able to get very far in skirmish mode is not very uncommon. When
you start the game in either online multi-player or skirmish mode
offline, you will begin in your office. You will have either one
bouncer or one henchman (man with Tommy gun). Usually if you wait
ten seconds, a citizen will come in and ask for a favor. The citizen
is usually a handgun person or bouncer. They will ask you to kill
one or two people (depending on where the map is). If you kill
those people, the person you did the favor for will be under your
control. When you have three men (including your Boss) you can
do one of two things.
The first option is to wait in your office for some good calls
to come in. You should take any call and accept it; if it includes
ammunition. Sometimes the caller will offer you a unit for money.
The better the unit, the more money. Sometimes they will ask you
to kill a store manager, and in exchange you can get money or
units. It is recommended that you lay off of the "killing
store manager" calls because the more units he is offering,
the longer distance and more difficult the job will be. Usually
you will have to go into enemy territory, which is not recommended
-- the CPU automatically starts off with a wife and sometimes
more units, depending on what difficulty level you put them as.
Just stay away from their territory until you have at least six
men. You should always have $3,000 in case the Chief of Police
appears and asks for money. He will always ask for $3,000, and
if you do not pay him quickly enough or not at all, all police
will shoot you and try to get into your safe house. If you are
in the suburbs, you do not need to worry about the police as there
are none there.
The second option is to extort or take over an ammunition store.
The store owner will pay you good money and all the supplies you
If you finished the first option, go to the second option, and
vice versa. After you are done with both of them, buy a food-type
place (restaurants, etc.). This is where you will recruit men.
Getting about two restaurants or whatever, is better. After that,
recruit bouncers and henchmen. Do not waste your money on street
girls, unless you already have a good amount of men. Street girls
are worthless in groups, unless you have good fast shooters to
back them up. Get about one to three bouncers and two or three
henchmen, depending on...
