Tips and Strategies[edit | edit source]

  • How to fight: Shopkeepers are okay at melee combat but truly excel when using guns. Your starting Shotgun will make quick work of most early threats. Don't forget to reload your weapons using Ammo Dispensers.
  • How to finish a mission: You can use Art of the Deal to buy the key and/or safe combination from business owners. Doing so allows you to freely take the item from the store without the owner becoming Hostile. Usually, it isn't worth doing this unless the store contains a mission item you need. Don't forget to loot their Refrigerator (if any) before you leave.
  • Making money isn't hard as a Shopkeeper. H̶a̶v̶i̶n̶g̶ ̶a̶ ̶K̶i̶l̶l̶ ̶P̶r̶o̶f̶i̶t̶e̶r̶ ̶m̶e̶a̶n̶s̶ ̶f̶r̶e̶e̶ ̶m̶o̶n̶e̶y̶ ̶w̶i̶t̶h̶ ̶e̶v̶e̶r̶y̶ ̶k̶i̶l̶l̶ ̶a̶n̶d̶ the discounts you get with Shrewd Negotiator will quickly add up. The Portable Sell-O-Matic is a money making machine if you take advantage of it. You even get a free item thanks to your Free Item Voucher!
  • You get less money when you sell an item with your Portable Sell-O-Matic compared to using a normal Sell-O-Matic. Sell-O-Matic machines give you 50% (75% if hacked) of the item's purchase when sold while the Portable Sell-O-Matic only gives 40%. You must decide between quick convenience or earning slightly more money when you need to sell items.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
