Frequently Asked Questions
What do Gold Bars do?
Gold bars are the in-game currency for CrimeCraft. Gold bars are used mainly for the purchase of items on the Black Market. The Black Market not only has items for sale like gear and weapons, but also other features to customize your character’s looks. Also, other features will be acquired here that adds benefits to your account, like an extra profile, XP boost drinks, or more ability points.
What is the Random Ba$terd and Cash Bag Award?
This is a random in-game event prize that is awarded every day. The RBA is issued twice a day and only requires that you are online. The system operates like a lottery and will select a random player that is online at the time, and announce the player in the system message.
The Cash Bag award is dropped once a day in a random high populate PvP match. An alert will be displayed when the bag is drop and will show as a “?” on your mini-map. Keep in mind that every man, or women, will be fighting tooth and nail to get that bag. It will show an animation at the location with dollar signs floating up. To collect the reward, just stand in the special circle and let the progress bar do the rest; it’s just like collecting containers in PvE maps. Once the award is collected, an announcement will be broadcast during the match

For those of you under the trial (F2P) membership, you can acquire the tickets on the Black Market under the Campaigns section.
I completed my episode of Bleedout, but never received the next chapter. What gives?
Each episode of Bleedout is under a 1 week duration period and can only be completed once per week. The reset period is current at 7pm EST on Saturday. Any episode completed prior before the deadline will receive access to the next chapter. You can check your Bleedout status by viewing your Mission window under the Episodes tab. There’s another option available to complete more than one episode per week and that is the “Fast Forward” ticket provided on the Black Market. This ticket will allow you to complete two episodes under the same week duration.

Where do I unlock the 2nd drug boost slot?

Where do I unlock the 3rd skill slot?
Go to Oceanside and speak to the skill trainer “Dominic Palochino” once your level 30. The name of the mission is known as “Field Promotion”. You will be granted the slot once the series of missions is completed.
How can I repair my gear?
Talk to any vendor located in the lobby and select the “wrench” icon on the menu bar. From there, you’ll be able to repair your items. Keep in mind that repairing your items will result in a minor durability loss. Be aware that frequent trips to vendor will result in your items decaying faster based on durability. We recommend you wait till your items are low enough before making any repairs, this way you can lengthen the use of your items in the long run.
Another repair feature is from the Black Market under Repair. Here, you can use gold bars to repair your items. Unlike vendor repair, the Black Market repair will restore your items without any durability penalty.
