Equipment is of vital importance for making your mobster successful. There are a number of standard categories, which are Weapons, Armor, Vehicles and Henchmen.
Equipment comes in handy for a number of reasons. For one, you’ll need specific equipment for certain missions. To perform these missions you will have to have certain items. A lot of those items you can just buy. Some will only become available if you reach the right level. But there are also items you have to earn in other ways, like doing missions.
Equipment is also necessary when attacking other mobsters or defending against other mobsters. The more equipment you have, the better your mob will perform when you attack others, or when others attack you.
Most equipment just provides an attack bonus and a defense bonus. Some items also have an upkeep cost you’ll have to keep paying every hour. You can view your total upkeep on the Territories page.
Each item in the Equipment overview show you the icon picture of the equipment, the name, and the statistics. The Beretta 9mm gives you 3 extra Attack, 1 extra Defense and has no Upkeep for you to pay. You can also lookup the full Beretta 9mm details in the in-depth section.
You can choose to buy extra Beretta’s for $ 1,900 a piece.

You can also acquire Blueprints as equipment. Blueprints let you upgrade existing items into better items. For a price of course. Some blueprints are commonly available and can be bought in the Back Alley, some can only purchased in Pack Sales, some can be won, and some are so unique that only one exists, or that they can only be owned for a specific time.
You can upgrade your items in the Workshop. There you see a list of all the blueprints that you own. After you select a blueprint, you will see the full details.
