Rebel Guide for newbies (money, items, etc)

Recommended Posts

Hey all, I wanted to make this post so that the newer arma/altis life players would have a better grasp on how to make money as someone new to the server and some things you can do on this server as a rebel. I also want your ideas so if you know another way to e.g make money, etc then just pm me and I will review it and if it is good I will add it and put credits in there for you, or just mention in the comments the idea of it. This is a work in progress that I will add more to over time and edit if things change. 

Also quick disclaimer, this is for new players! 

 

Quick easy money

Solo:

Lotto tickets:

This may not be a rebel thing to do but just incase you don't know, always buy lotto tickets whenever you can, you basically can't lose with there chances, it's just the matter of staying on for the half hour (or less depending on when the last lotto was drawn) until lotto is drawn. You can buy lotto tickets from any city at the civilian market. Once you get your lotto ticket that is priced at $1000 dollars you will be allocated 3 numbers, if one of your numbers are drawn then you will be given money depending on how many people are on, it's usually around 70-120k for 1 number. If you get the 2nd number as well, you will be given even more money! Pretty simple.. and then if you get your 3rd number then you are one lucky bastard (You recieve the whole cash pool, it's pretty rare though and you get millions..) If you think about the statistics then 1000 dollars for 1 number that is usually around 70k upwards, that is pretty damn hard to lose money with.

Gas station robbery:

So you wanna rob a gas station, this is going to be short and sweet

Equipment

- Gun (To rob a gas station you must have a gun, otherwise it won't let you start it and it will just say 'You failed to rob the gas station' or something like that)

- Car, so that once you rob it you can get away quicker (The quickest car would have to be the sport hatchback, or any car and an arma bug ha). You don't need a car but it is preffered otherwise the cops will get those sniffer dogs on your ass.

Procedure:

Usually what I like to do is park my car right up against the glass of the gas station so once it's done or I hear the cops blaring their sirens I can jump into the car almost straight away and make a quick get away. Or you stand up to them like a man and stand in the middle of the road, look them dead in the eye and force them to surrender with your subconciouns. Or kill them, that works to.

Usually from this you will make approximately 10k, but it all depends. Also security contractors can remove funds from the gas station so that will greatly effect your robbery (Or nobody has been buying stuff or refueling there)

It's also alote easier to do a gas station without interuptions while police are responding to something else, it's not a guarantee that they wont show up but it is more likely that they wont, but that makes it boring, do it while cops are able to respond so that your not boring yourself by sitting at a black box staring at it all day.

Illegal relics:

One way to make money solo is to farm illegal relics, here is a guide on how to do so:

Equipment

- 1x Wetsuit (Ya seal suit)

- 1x Rebreather (So you don't drown yourself)

- 1x Diving goggles (Makes you see further in the water/clearer)

- 1x Biggest backpack you can get (Because backpacks are good ;>)

- 1x SDAR (Underwater gun)

- 1x A boat, preferably a RHIB because it's the fastest and carries more (but whatever you can afford, it just makes each run quicker)

- 2-4x Vodka (This increases your Y inventory so you can pull up more relics faster)

Once you have gotten this, head down to the illegal relics and dive down to get your sweet, sweet relics. Activate your Vodka then click TAB once your deep enough to start harvesting. After you are full go up and cram those relics in your boat and rinse and repeat until your boat is full. Now that you have your relics your going to have to head to gang hideout 4, it is a water hideout where you will be cleaning your relics before you sell them for money, but people often fight for this hideout for doing the exact thing your doing or even more such as water convoys etc. It is even possible to send a message to the owner of it and ask if it is okay for you to take it without bloodshed, unless your an MLG pro that can 360 noscope them with a zubr of course. After you have talked to them or you don't want to bother with that, I recommened leaving your boat stopped just away from the hideout a bit, then swimming under water to not attract attention and make sure it's clear first before you bring in your illegal relics, so once you have done that you are going to want to go up to the flag pole, there you can scroll wheel and click 'capture', You will need to stay in a close radius of the sign otherwise it will stop claiming it (I like to just go and open the door and hide really close to the door and keep my ears peeled for any boat sounds). Congratulations you now own the gang hideout! Now now calm down I know your just so overwhelmed by this astonishing thing you have just accomplished, what you are going to want to do is take your relics out of your boat (Probably gonna need to use another vodka so you can carry more to the room) and go to the processing room (It's a green crate) and scroll wheel on the crate, you should see an option called 'clean relics' You are going to want to do so and after doing that, sell them or if prices are low then store them in your house. If you don't have a house then bad luck, sell the damn relics!

 

Gang/Group:

Fort Knox/Altis Research: 

These two events are the most important on the priority order for a cop, if you do this, you better be prepared or you will be completely flattened. This is for the more experienced gangs and is deffinately not something you would want to do alone! There is not else to be said here other then to hatch a plan and make sure that there is always a backup, etc.

Necessary items: Balls

Bank:

The National Bank of Altis! This is lots of fun to do and can really pay of if you do it right that is.

Procedure:

Now this is entirely up to you, but there are some things you want to watch out for so you don't get taken by suprise. One of these things police use is something called the 'Telos jump', basically what it is, is a vehicle gets in position for a hill and then once nearing the edge of it they will boost and jump over the H-Barriers in place which can take lots of the newer Bank goers a suprise while they sit there in stunned confusion as they see the bomb has been defused. So make sure to have set locations for players in your gang to be, mark locations for people to be so that nobody gets confused (make sure its in group if you have a gang made). Always have somebody in the main building guarding it incase cops someone get in and go for the defuse. Also don't just have people in bank, be creative and have one of the players on the outside in Telos City or sniping in some cool spot you found. Okay so the doors to the bank have been blown open, don't get to excited just yet. You will need some people still making sure that no police come so have a designated amount of people just watching the horizon incase a cop car does show up, in that case they can alert you so you are not taken by suprise. But obviously have people loading up with money bags and storing them etc. Once that's done you can escape, preferably by helicopter. Then go sell your money bags and your done, thats it.

Hospitals:

Although you can do these alone it is very tough to not get caught by the cops. So take some of your gang/group members. A good spot to have people is on the roof because they have a good view of everything and if the cops want to go get the person at the counter there going to have a hard time not being sprayed by the people on the roof. For the person that is going to rob the hospital all you need to do is on the bottom floor, go up to the counter and scroll wheel on the sign. You will receive two robbery options, chemicals and money, this is up to you, whatever you need more. Make sure to have an escape helicopter (preffered) or a getaway car obviously..

Power Station:

Powerstation, for this you will need to plant a bomb at the main building (It's a shed) and protect against the cops from defusing it, if the powerstation blows then the electricity to citys and checkpoints is cut and that's pretty much it. It can be used to gain advantages on cops, you don't actually gain any items nor weapons from this.

Drug Convoys/Weapon convoys/ID Convoys: 

Convoys oh convoys, I love these they are great! And soon you will to :) Also I would put these in the solo list but you actually have to have a gang to capture a gang hideout so it's basically a gang thingo

Necessary Items:

- Gun (Because while you are escorting this you need to protect it from cops if they see you, also you need a gun to capture the gang hideout).

 

Procedure: 

Drug Convoy:

I myself like to go on the map and in group chat (if you are in a gang otherwise it will show for everyone) Click CTRL+LFT CLK, and draw a route for were I am going. Make sure that you go around checkpoints and citys because you will draw to much attention to yourself, and during a convoy that's honestly the last thing you need. Once you are on the road you will have a pickup point and after you go there you will get a dropoff point. Once you do this you will be rewarded with money! One problem though, it's in cash 0.0 so you must go and find an atm and put that money away as quickly as possible. If the prices are low then you could always do a weapon convoy and sell the weapons

Recommendation:

1) If you do these in first person you will recieve a larger payout, but you wont be able to change back to third person until the restart so it's up to you. I also find that it's alote funner in first person.

2) The more cops on, the more money in your payout. Although it is more likely for a cop to be lurking around and find you!

Weapons Convoy:

I myself like to go on the map and in group chat (if you are in a gang otherwise it will show for everyone) Click CTRL+LFT CLK, and draw a route for were I am going. Make sure that you go around checkpoints and citys because you will draw to much attention to yourself, and during a convoy that's honestly the last thing you need. Once you are on the road you will have a pickup point and after you go there you will get a dropoff point. Once you do this you will be rewarded with your weapons, one problem though.. Your hemmit/zamak will dissapear in 15m! Oh noes! Usually what I like to do is have a friend pick me up in his helicopter and fly me to my house, I just put the weapons in his helicopter.

Recommendation:

Do these when there are not many cops on and the drug convoy prices are low because you don't recieve less of a reward.

Have a friend pick you up and drop you to your house with a helicopter so you can transfer your precious weapons.

ID Convoy:

Just like the other convoys, but the difference is that you get allocated either a PD, Checkpoint. Once you drive there you stop the truck and it explodes, boom done.

 

Thank you for reading this, I hope it helped out even the slightest and taught you a bit more about The Darkside!

And if you want more money sell the high tier weapons to people like me :)

Just a heads up, you don't gain anything money or item wise for a power station. The only thing that blowing the power station up does is it knocks out power to lights in main cities and checkpoints.

Actually that is a fair point you can also sell the weapons instead of doing the drug convoy if you need money and the drug convoy prices are low, added..
