Weapons Depot Info & Items

A new property, the Weapons Depot, is now in game!



This building is pretty much an exact replica of the Chop Shop, except that 1) produces weapons, 2) requires different materials, and 3) seems to slightly better than the chop shop.

Just like the Chop Shop, it requires multiple pieces of 5 different components to upgrade: Forges, Gunpowder, Arc Welders, Buzzsaws, and Gun Drills. The initial requirement is 4 of each item and this scales up as you upgrade your depot. You can ask Mafia members for help for getting the items, however, calling for help is this fashion puts both the Chop Shop and Weapons Depot "Ask for Help" buttons on the 24 hour cooldown.


Loot

The items in the Weapons Depot seem just a bit better than the Chop Shop vehicles. While there are less options, there are 3 particular items which provide +6 stamina, +5 attack, and +5 defense, respectively:



Here is the weapon list, stats, and item requirements:

Level 1: Random Common Weapon; requires 1x Weapon Part

Level 2: Random Uncommon Weapon; requires 3x Weapon Part

Level 3: Random Rare Weapon; requires 5x Weapon Part

Level 4: Ninja Sai (30 attack, 40 defense); requires 8x Weapon Part

Level 5: First Blood (49 attack, 13 defense); requires 10x Weapon Part and 1x Explosive Arrow

Level 6: Ultrasonic Gun (22 attack, 48 defense); requires 12x Weapon Part and 1x Sonic Emitter

Level 7: Laser Guided RPG (37 attack, 42 defense); requires 21x Weapon Part and 1x Laser Rangefinder

Level 8: Robber's Utility Belt (33 attack, 41 defense, +6 stamina); requires 24x Weapon part, 1x Boomerang, and 1x Grapple

Level 9: Railgun (51 attack, 24 defense, +5 attack); requires 27x Weapon Part and 1x Railgun Barrel

Level 10: Plasma Rifle (40 attack, 47 defense, +5 defense); requires 35x Weapon Part and 1x Portable Fusion Reactor

---

And that about sums up the Weapons Depot. All the loot pieces needed for construction of the Weapons Depot loot pieces will drop from jobs, just like Chop Shop pieces.

  1. do all parts drop from all cities or do some parts drop from only 1 city?

  2. I don't know if it is new, but it is to me. This morning on one account it said that I had cracked the vault. I was emailed a code and received 75 XP, two weapons and 4 points.

  3. after i upgraded my weapons depot, the build weapon counter did not reset... is this the same for you guys?

  4. when are you going to update the best equipment section with the chop shop, weapon depot, and maybe fight club items?

    ReplyDelete
  5. Do we know what the difference in ratings are for common, uncommon, and rare weapons. (i.e. Chop Shop - Common Vehicle: all ratings <40; Rare Vehicle: Att. or Def >40)

    ReplyDelete
  6. FYI: The same glitch is there to get 2 Weapons per day like the Chop Shop. It worked for me, but it gave me 2 vehicles (Ronin Motorcycle and the ATV).

  7. What happens if you choose not to subscribe using your email address? I do not want to get flooded. How does that work for Mafia gifts? Do you go into your yahoo account to accept the gifts?
    signed just learning the system grrr

  8. just got a Harpoon Cannon from the "uncommon" weapons, quite a surprise to get that :)

    ReplyDelete
  9. Very excited to build this up to max...with an extra 16 attack points per day (8 if they fix the double-collect bug) I'll finally have my dream of a character that can both fight AND do max energy.

    Sadly everyone else will probably have this idea too so I'm probably still at a relative disadvantage against daily players...but the more casual ones should be easy pickings.

    Farming the 1 energy job is an awesome way to collect the parts you need for upgrading the shop. I have about 5400 energy, so I expect I'll be able to get 50-60 parts. Then I'll hit an energy pack, level up and burn through another 5400 energy. I suspect I'll be able to do this job about 15000 times and collect 150-200 parts from it.

    The downside is that I will probably collect very few of the specialty parts like the grapple or rail gun. If those are like the high tech car parts in the chop shop I won't expect to find more than 2 such parts doing the 1 energy job 15000 times. The drop rate for those seems to be much lower unless you're on a higher energy job.

    Lol if harpoon cannon is from uncommon then rare production must give typhoon cleavers or vegas mastery loot every time. (jk)

  11. Dear author,

    For the weapons that give a stamina, attack, or defense bonus, are these permanent character bonuses or one-time use bonuses? The same question goes for the the chop shop... I haven't purchased any vehicles or weapons yet to find out and hoping you can let us know.

    Thank you.

  12. please post a bangkok job requirment been too long after release

    ReplyDelete
  13. The bonuses are permanent.. and for the person asking about bangkok job requirement, it has been stated several times on this site that each tier has unique items.. as soon as you are done with it you can sell them (unless you need satellite phones). there is no need for an item list. each episode is identical in terms of # of items needed, each episode using its own set of that item.

    ReplyDelete
  14. The harpoon Cannon guy must be Bullshatting us. I did 2 rare's and got a TnT and a Spitting Cobra (49 atk 28def)

    ReplyDelete
  15. On mafia wiki they say that you can actually get a harpoon cannon so I guess it's true what he says. Just another glitch from zynga i suppose.

    ReplyDelete
  16. anyone else noticed that the rebel-2 and solar flare stamina/energy bonus went up?

    ReplyDelete
  17. Yeah, noticed, did anyone else notice that the bonus of Mugati Sport and Hunter 'Spy' XS changed? They just switched them... ^^

    ReplyDelete
  18. Yeah I just noticed now that you said something. I prefer how it was before. I hope they don't do the same thing with the weapons.

    ReplyDelete
  19. yeah mugati switched :( i like this vehicle :P well now i will get better att from the other one xD (hunter)

    ReplyDelete
  20. I just tried to do my "double collect" on the Chop Shop but it didn't work tonight. Not sure if they fixed it or if it was just a glitch. My Weapons Depot still has a couple of hours on it. I will be interested to see if that has changed as well.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I tried the double glitch also and it doesn't work anymore. :-( I built rare weapons and got TNT :-P I need some rare items. Any how the weapons depot is +2 parts for each level 1-2 is 4parts each
    2-3 is 6 parts
    lvl3-4 is 8parts each etc and you get the # of parts as your level.

    ReplyDelete
  22. http://mafiawars.wikia.com/wiki/Weapons_Depot if u check out the rare items the harpoon cannon is available that guy is not ''bullshiting us'' must be a glitch

    ReplyDelete
  23. Thats gay i dont got a weapons depot this sucks...is it becuase i never biult a chop shop..

    ReplyDelete
  24. Hey MW, I accepted a crew collection mission, and the job i had to do was in Episode 5B (Dragon Head) of Bangkok, which I have yet to unlock by the way. Now, it is unlocked, even though I haven't even started on 5A

    ReplyDelete
  25. unfortunately yes, they seem to have fixed the double car glitch on chop shop :( just tried to build two but could only build one

    ReplyDelete
  26. It looks like that all parts needed for build a weapons dropped randomly in any city, I have a got a few from any specific parts (Explosive Arrow, Sonic Emitter, Grapple....) but I haven't got yet the Portable Fusion Reactor, is there a specific city in which you can get it or it's just my bad luck that I haven't got it yet?

    ReplyDelete
  27. Hi I would like to know if one can revault The Irish and other collections....Thank you

    ReplyDelete
  28. I also received a Harpoon Cannon as my very first weapons item. I really think it was a glitch, but I must say a nice one!

    ReplyDelete
  29. the build-2-cars-glitch is fixed. doenst work for the weapons shop either.

    ReplyDelete
  30. levels 2,3,4,5: new level * 2 = parts per item
    level 6,7,8,9,10: new level + 5 = parts per item

    as a table:
    Level : parts/item
    2:4
    3:6
    4:8
    5:10
    6:11
    7:12
    8:13
    9:14
    10:15

    93 parts/item, 465 parts in total
    for those of you with energy drones, you know what to do ;)

  31. Can anyone post the link that will add an ultrasonic gun and a plasma rifle to a wishlist?

  32. I have been losing def pts recently. Does anybody know why this might be happening? I haven't been losing any mafia members. I'm worried.

    ReplyDelete
  33. With the chop shop, weapons depot, free daily skill point from the checklist, and collected the bonus from playing the lotto once per week, you would gain 4797 skill points over the course of the next year. If your 2400 by then, thats 2 more skill points per level, that gives you a 7 to 1 skill point to level ratio, not even counting things like job mastery and collections, which would probally give you more like an 8 to 1 ratio. This is all of course assuming there won't be an armor depot, or something of the like, which would put us well over 6000 free skill points per year. Being most daily players who havent mastered every job will quite soon due to all these boost, everyone is probally going to focus on robbing. Everyone will start putting a ton of points in stamina and attack. Since you can stay a top wheelman if you switch classes, and continous leveling is easier than ever, the mogul is starting to look like a viable class opition. Even more so since the mogul can collect Baht very quickly and buy a lot more Faction Store items. Once people fully level up robbing, the novelty of it should soon wear off and people will put a hell of a lot of points in energy. After that, those who haven't already, will go and work on getting more acheievements. By the time Las Vegas comes out everyone will have a ton of extra skill points, meaning Los Vegas will probally be super difficult. Some jobs there might have a worse energy to exp ratio than 1:1 (before top mafia and private island bonuses). If not the city will be extremely easy to everyone who has collected these 1000s of free skill points.

  34. Was in the process of making a similar post Daniel. I agree lol, lots of free skill points floating around and it really changes the way game is played.

    ReplyDelete
  35. As Tman1027 above said, I have been losing attack and defense points and then gaining them back at random...I am basing this on my mafia attack that is shown in the inventory screen and I have not been losing or gaining mafia members.

    I can buy and sell 1 simple item like a baseball bat or other low key item and my attack/defense might gain or lose as much as 500 points. Why would I EVER buy and item and anything go DOWN!!!!

    Any comments...

    ReplyDelete
  36. Is it true that if your a Fearless and your someone's top wheelman you keep that bonus if you change class, say to Maniac?
    I would hate to try and lose 30 RP over it.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I wouldn't get to excited about the Mystery Bag, Chop Shop, Weapons Depot and soon to be implemented Armory skill point bonuses since they will soon be axing the five skill points for leveling bonuses. Instead you will collect a flat five points per day and they are increasing the mastering percentages on the lower levels of New York to help new players get into the game. But enjoy it while you can and do your leveling over the next month or two.

    It is going to be a long Summer.

  39. Like a dumb**** I posted instead of claiming the prize... so it defaulted to the XP *face-palm*

    ReplyDelete
  40. lol sorry for triple-post but I checked on my gf's account and you get ALL the items.

    ReplyDelete
  41. where did you get the info on no more skill points for levels? that would be the death of mafia wars lol

    ReplyDelete
  42. Wants to remind everyone who participated in Zynga focus groups that they signed an NDA and that none of the ideas discussed may actually find their way into the game.

    ReplyDelete
  43. MOTHERF*#$ER. I upgraded my weapons depot to level 3, built a random rare weapon and it said I got some gun I hadn't heard of with an asian name. I look in my loot. Not there. I look under my profile for its picture. Not there. NOT THERE. Anyone else having this issue?

    ReplyDelete
  44. @Anon above:
    I am level 3 Weapons Depot also. Just as myself, you probably got the Cheng-Wei X94 Machine Gun. It is the Triad weapon in the faction store (25 att/ 42 def and costs $280,000 Baht to buy). Look for it there. It caught me offguard also. But its better than getting a TNT because you can sell this item if you need the baht.

    ReplyDelete
  45. is there any specific jobs/city which best to loot weapon depot parts?

    ReplyDelete
  46. THANKS re: Cheng-Wei X94 Machine Gun being awarded in the Depot.

    ReplyDelete
  47. and mifkin, yes you'll keep the no energy effect even after a class change as long as someone has you as a wheelman. tested on several accounts. not saying that zynga could change this tough.

    ReplyDelete
  48. lol, focus group idea or real idea, doesn't matter - it's horrible. how would new players ever catch up? You have to wait for Mafia Wars 2 for those kinds of changes.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Is Mafia war's toolbar a spy ware like Yahoo toolbar and rest of them?

    ReplyDelete
  50. I have some strange feature about weapon depot... anytime i build a weapon my attack points are going down by 100 or so... F...k, s...t, d...n it! Has anyone else had this problem?

    ReplyDelete
  51. What level do you have to be to get a weapons depot?

    ReplyDelete
  52. why does my attack go down when i buy weapons???

    ReplyDelete
  53. Best way to spend 12 RP
    The 'Craft Now' button in the Weapons Depot instead of buying 4 skill points (discounted price).
    - build Robber's Utility Belt (A/D 33,41 - needs Weapon Part x72, Boomerang x1, Grapple x1) +6 Stam.Points
    - build Railgun (A/D 51,24 - needs Weapon Part x81, Railgun Barrel x1) +5 Att.Points
    - build Plasma Rifle (A/D 40,47 - needs Weapon Part x105, Portable Fusion Reactor x1) +5 Def.Points

    Push your alts to collect needed items harder :p
