Crime Spree Now Live

The old Respect Meter / Gift Safe House combo has been updated and the name has been changed to "Crime Spree":


Now, leveling up scales. Going from Level 0 t0 Level 1 requires 5 items, as does going from Level 1 to Level 2. At Level 2, it rises; Level 2 to Level 3 requires 10 items.

Unfortunately, when you level up, you get an randomly selected item (from a pool of about 6 items):


I have not seen any "good" items as rewards for leveling up or rewards from opening gifts.

Right now, to me at least, I have not seen any conclusive evidence that makes me think this is worthwhile. With that said, you can get some good rewards from mastering the higher levels (6+). Whether this is worth it to you, you will have to decide that for yourself.

Maybe the rewards will be even better for higher levels, we will have to wait and see!

However, if you do send a gift to your mafia members by responding to their Mafia Wars Crime Spree request, you can pick 100 XP, 50 energy, 0r 10 stamina as a reward. I guess it is truly better to give than receive!

Oh, and here is a free rewards point link:

  1. this thing is bugged. there isnt a limit to how many times you can respond to a single request. just copy and paste the request repeatedly, and you can get infinite exp/energy

  2. wait correction. its a max of 5 rewards a day. but you can keep sending from a single request.

    ReplyDelete
  3. I tried responding to request several times, each time everything went right, it told me I got 50 energy (what I chose), but then it said "You do not have a request from so-and-so). I didn't get any energy. I was able to open a few gifts though and they all seem like the same stuff from the previous gift house :( At least I hope they'll bring the chariot back--that one was cool. --knuckles k.

  4. the "you do not have a request form so-and-so" message appears only when you respond to request from the internal MW messages center. If you response from FB requests tab it will be just fine (at least that's what happening to me) - buggy as hell!

  5. I got a Pair of Steeltips, red women heels with a spike in front, item sucks but I didn't have it before :)

  6. Don't be a baby, give it a chance. I'm sure it's improved over the old system. And you're wrong, it's not just 5 requests per level. The amount of gifts needed for each level increases. Also, the gifts for levelling up also seem to be unique as I have received several that I didn't have before (vortex ring gun, tora assault rifle)

  12. Dear blogger,

    First of all. Great blog. Excellent info.

    But I would like to ask you about your strategy in Episode 6, Saboteur of Bangkok.

    At the first choosing point, why are you ignoring the Ninjas?

    Like you said, that the soon-to-arrive Armory will provide better armor. But similarly, the Weapons Depot (already upgraded) already provides us with 50+ stat defense and attack weapons. So, that equalises any predilection you may have had for the Nak Kha shotgun.

    Additionally, buying from faction store isn't going to be a viable option any time soon considering the costs of the inventory items required for the 2 new episodes.

    And most importantly, "Attack Armor" is much more "rarer" than "Attack weapons". For attack weapons, there are 6 items of 40+ attack that are lootable through jobs/fights. Whereas, in case of attack armor, there are just 2 items (shturmovik, optical camo suit) which have 35+ attack that are lootable through jobs/fights.

    I think, if you were to do a survey on your website to find out what the stats of the worst armor used by a player are to the stats of the worst weapon used by a player, I am sure the armor will come off worse. (I myself used Rebel Snipers till I got to level 300!!!)

    Surely, the strategy must be to go for the Ninjas for the first 3 masteries and the shotgun later!!

  13. the RP..not always 5 ramdon from 1 to 5 :(

  14. Anon, the idea here is that it's possible to get more than one yakuza assassin per day, despite the cost of 480k. On the other hand, the only other improvement over the tanto/ubijica rifle is the railgun, which is limited to one per day, no matter how you slice it.
    But really, do you need that much variety of items? The best item is the best, no matter how many other items are one or two points under it, and that's all that matters.
    The -3k per job and the lousy ~1.75x exp rate at level 3 mastery is all BS anyways.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I ignore Ninja because because its only a 2 attacvk upgrade over the Shturvmovik, while the Shotgun is a 4 attack upgrade over the Ubijca Assault Rifle or Tanto.

    Each Shotgun improves your mafia by twice as much as a Ninja would. That is the major reason I have no interest in the Ninja.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Also, if someone doesn't have Shturmoviks, they have no reason not to get them. The job is a lot cheaper than getting ninjas, and I'm betting you could trade a single piece of the episode 7 loot for like 10 shturmoviks.

  17. Back to the Crime spree topic. I got a Fugama Kondoru Motorcycle, 25/47, for completing level 6. Just sayin'. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  18. Updated, thanks. Still not about to request and open 60 gifts for a 47 def motorcycle haha.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Yeah, I know what you mean. I'm just kinda bored at this point in my game. Just passing the time waiting to finish the last 2 eps of Bangkok. It's kinda nice to see something new that I didn't have though. Just for the record, I received a Remote Control Sniper, 35/20, for completing level 8 & 9. Yeah I know, whoot whoot. Pffft! LOL!

  20. Sumotori Fighter 17 Attack 25 Defense

    ReplyDelete
  21. The top lootable items right now are
    Hunter 'spy'
    Mugati
    Railgun
    Titanium Katar
    Ninja
    Royal Thai Marine

    With the Nemesis bookmarklet you can make two railgun's a day provided you have the parts and the upgraded depot . Also you don't have to level up your facilities. If you have the parts and a lvl 1 weapons depot and lvl 1 carshop you can make 1 hunter and 1 railgun per day, again, provided you have the weapon parts and carparts. It's the best bookmarklet I've ever used.

  22. Some of the lotto trust found this guide at last ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  23. 2 new things i noticed when logging on just now, weapons depot is now more similar to chop shop in that they made it cost more weapons parts to build the better stuff, in fact everything now costs more to build, im guessing they upped how many parts you receive per day, but i do not know that numeber yet, but for the changes, i was rewarded with 26 weapons parts. also under the coming soon they have announced the challenge mission London. same as Paris it looks like, 3 weeks 3 limited edition loot items and will need british passports in order to complete jobs. any more info on what happened to the weapons depot would be appreciated.

    ReplyDelete
  24. also forgot to mention in my above post, there is now a button in both the chop shop and weapons depot that allows you to build each respective item as much as you want, it just costs 6 reward points though, who would've guessed they would put something like this in

    ReplyDelete
  25. Is anyone else not getting a bonus for clearing (winning any number of times) the board in robbing?

    ReplyDelete
  26. me too wats up with no bounos

    ReplyDelete
  27. For the Weapons Depot, it is going to cost me 11 RP's to build a new weapon early, why the difference? It looks like the bonus weapons parts you received was based on a percentage of what you already owned.

    ReplyDelete
  28. The Robbing bonus has been nerfed, went 8-1 on a board and received just 29 exp(usually I get something around 50)

    ReplyDelete
  29. I'm getting half of what I should. Actually, less. Cleared 7 - got 35 Exp.

    Also, I got 318 parts.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Weapons parts have been adjusted. Weapons parts use is more similar to the chop shop now. Also, in the chop shop and weapons shop, you can build more than one car/weapon per day, for the nominal fee of 6 RP :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. My robbing xp went to crap also..8-1 yielded 30 something xp everytime. Plus getting a lot more cell phones and junk rewards now.

    ReplyDelete
  32. the adjustment for weapon depot is fine but they need to change how many you can rob from people to make it more in line with chop shop now. only getting 1 part from robbing doesn't cut it.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Bah, 9-0 and only 24 exp >_>
    I hope they change this back...

    ReplyDelete
  34. London is coming for Limited time only like Paris .. be prepared!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. You have been given 542 weapon parts for the changes made to the weapon shop.

    ReplyDelete
  36. The number of reward points needed to build early in the chop shop and weapons depot keeps changing. On my account it started out as 4. I bought one early build and then it was 6. This morning it was 9.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Why in the world is Zygna screwing around with the experience given for robbing. The experience for a successful robbery and for clearing the board has been DRASTICALLY reduced. I thought they wanted to encourage us to put more skill points in stamina, attack, and defense. I thought they wanted to encourage players with energy accounts to develop their characters in a more balanced way. How is this going to achieve this? How are we supposed to plan our allocation of skill points when they keep making these kinds of changes? I'm pretty ripped about this!!

  39. Yep, exploit this glitch while it lasts....

    ReplyDelete
  40. glitch works...i'm up to level 12.

    ReplyDelete
  41. It looks like they've dropped the option of 100 XP when you send a gift now. We've lost an easy way to get those last few hundred points you need when trying to level.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Im just curious... why would your mafia sabotage a crime spree.. what do they get out of it? and how does it affect me ?
