View Full Version : Explosives

Thought I'd bring this discussion in here as it is more general than suggestions&Feedback.

Anyone any comments on explosives??

I'm having great fun robbing people with them at the minute.
Not consuming any of them, but battering people twice my size??

Not sure how they work, but what do I care. 5000 defense is no match for my 3800 attack if I have 100 molitovs.


It appears explosives are consumed during attacks, not robs and the number consumed is shown in the fight report.
-8 in this case :( about 8%

2nd Edit
It appears they only "consume" if you lose a fight.
Chose your opponents wisely and they'll be your friends for life.
What other weapon gives 1 attack point for $100,
150AP for $15,000 if you have 150 mafia

Hi Skunk
I used quite a lot of the explosive when they were introduced, but have stopped; mainly because the ARE consumed at a rate of knots and tbh NOT using them hasn't changed the results of my fights hugely

I used them also in the beginning bu then i see them go away like fuel damps wtf -13 that is -13 smoke bombs or what so ever and then it go's really fast !
And your not loosing them only when loosing also when your being attacked and win and if you attack and win you can loose them also.
Sometimes i win and then are not consumed :S

They are ONLY consumed when needed (i.e. If the current mafia member attacking has a lower overall "score" then the defending mafia member then the explosive will be used, vice versa). I have had all my explosive through 700+ fights and robberies and not one of them has ever been used.

I don't have a well formed theory on exactly where explosives figure in the game, but let me give you my limited observation. As you may know, there are 3 types: attack-only (eg, hand grenade), defense-only (eg, stun grenade) and attack&defense (eg, IED). I experimented with all types. Explosives with both attack and defense attribute were the first to be consumed. Then went the defense-only explosives even though I successfully repelled robbery and attack attempts. I am yet to lose attack-only explosives.

i have lost attack only ones during fights.

I picked a fight with a guy who was same level as me but with 80 more mafia. I won 3/4 fights, and each attempt i lost 8-11 explosives win or loose.

I lost my Molotov's and Frag's

I have only bought Molotovs, so my experience is limited, but I have only lost one fight in that time and it used them. It also uses them on more difficult opponents to beat, and often it won't use them in the first 2 or 3 fights, but starts using them if you keep hammering on the guy.

If your opponents are a bit weaker, it won't use them.

It is not possible to use more than 500 items per category ( each mafia member can carry 1 explosive, 1 vehicle, 1 gun, 1 armor, and 1 melee into battle).. The game automatically chooses your best 500 items from said category( the items will be different when atking and defending cuz it chooses the best for that particular action) so having or buying 1,000,000,000 molitovs won't move your stats 1 point better because at this point I pray that you have 500 explosives better than 1 atk.. If not check in the junkyard map.. Hope this helps

I use 2530 items in attacks.
