Already blowed over 1500 energy and 60 stamina, no safes found. Is there a particular map or mission I should do? Or click the lowest energy cost one just 100 times? Same goes for robbing, rob one building 3 times or all buildings in one hood or just one building per hood? New to events so any tips are useful. Thanks a lot.

Ok well from my understanding you can only get safes from attacking/robbing IF the player shows that he has safes.

Otherwise you have to just do missions.

Or search for targets with safes...

So how do you see that a target has safes? Search trough his whole inventory? And what about the missions? Any tips from pro event busters?:)

no when you go to his hood there should be an image of a safe on the bottom left corner of the screen

(that's what I think anyways... I've only seen screenshots)

Locate the updated best of the best (should be somewhere on the first page of the forum) and find the link to CrimeCityMark's event guide. It can't be made much clearer than that, except some of the names of things are different.

Every event works the same way though, only the names of things change.

Keep in mind that not everyone participates in events, But the best way is keep attacking/rob players..Don't waste hitting the high xp on the maps, it's all random drop

*facepalm*

Icons on your screen are your icons. The one in the bottom left is the event menu. If you see that, you have an event running. If you don't see it, no event.

There is no way to know for sure if a rival has event boxes until you steal one from them, although at this point in an event it is almost impossible for anyone to not have boxes.

Attack the people who try to rob you. They are usually active players who are also participating in the event, thus holding gun safes.

I find that high energy missions tends to have a higher case drop rate but that's of course random. I'm farming a casino and get about 1 case per 600 energy almost guaranteed. Not sure if that's good or bad though :)

PVP is also random but a good indication of whether they have cases and whether they're participating or not is by their inventory. If you see they have a few of the 3 or 5 open case rewards, chances are they'll have more cases. For me, if I'm lucky, I get about 2 to 3 cases dropped in robberies or attacks per 15 stamina or so.

Also if you're using cash opens, I find there's no need to accumulate more than 10 if you're active. You will get more fails than opens and will replenish your opens throu PVP. This way you can avoid leveling too much.

Edit: I open about 12 per day so scenario will change if you open more.

So you can only get a safe from a person or from his building if he holds one? Just read the event guide, sorry for not finding it myself and opening a topic. Sexkitteh, there is a android event. Update crimecity!

Yes I did the update (thanks to Tony ironically enough) and it's working...

So the player DOESN'T have to be participating in the event? I can rob/attack anyone and there is a chance of a drop?

I'll chime in as I've recently had a run of bad luck, though, it's changing.

Depending on your level, you'll notice a few things:


If at a low level, people are unaware of events, how to obtain, and what to do

Most of your success will be at the 'missions' where the highest energy projects are the ones that yield the better drop rates
You'll also have better luck during the last few days when battling others as they will tend to have one or more event 'prizes' in their arsenal due to playing a few days
As far as robbing, I cannot give you the best suggestion, except that I've had the same luck robbing a laundromat as compared to robbing a warehouse or above
When fighting in PvP, try to fight against someone who is active (i.e. they pick up on time, and there aren't many building to rob, except for the laundromat/arcade, etc) as they tend to be the ones who 'may' have something to drop
Lastly, look at their inventory to see if they have anything in the past few events that they have won, as that typically is a sign that they are relatively active in the current event


Hope this helps from an L30 player.

One good piece of advice I received recently, is try to attack/rob people on your newsfeeds. This at least shows they have been active lately, so have a better chance to have a gun safe in their possession. There is no way of knowing for sure that they do.

Can you blind attack and still have a chance to get a safe? or do you have to go to their hood?

Cause... I have almost 0 red in my news feed... and the red I'd have to spend 100 bucks on weapons to get a 1 up on him...

You can blind attack.

OK cool. So I'm confused... because players say that you can ONLY get safes from people that HAVE safes... but everything posted by CC says just attack/rob and or do missions...

which one is it???

B.S. There's no event going on. I've leveled 4 times since Sunday with a mix of 20% PvP and 80% PvE and I haven't seen a single safe.

You have NO WAY of knowing who (PVP) has safes and how many they have. People have shared "Tips" on how you "MIGHT" be able to improve your chances.

Oh ok... so there is a chance that you CAN get a safe from someone that DOESN'T have any? Somewhat of an unknown factor?

But what is known is that people have lost safes to attacks right?

No, you can not get a safe from someone who doesn't have any. You just can not know for sure if they have any. Yes, you can lose safes from being attacked. I just recentley lost 9 safes to 1 person in 10 attacks.

sexkitteh
05-16-2012, 10:28 AM
OMG! That completely blows o_0

And that too is discomforting... cause I'm such low level... I don't think there are a lot of people attacking and stuff...

Just my observation: when an events starts i have had shiit luck getting drops from simple robberies and/atks. for the last 2 events i have gone straight to the empire airport & empire university where I sometimes farm for stone hammers and NATO masks. I almost always get an event item when I try this during an event. Seems to get the ball rolling for me.
