  1. Summary: I made a new character and got the item for Old Nag (starter horse). Couldn't use the item. Chat said I had an active mount. Turns out there was a motorcycle somewhere in the world and a parked horse. Description: I couldn't use the item to get the starter mount, and it turns out that's because my fresh character for some reason had 2 bugged mounts already. Motorcycle was active and horse was parked. I didn't see the motorcycle anywhere on the map. I towed it and it was usable, as was the horse, but neither of them had inventory and neither of them used fuel/feed (i.e. infinite "stamina"). Steps to Reproduce: 1. Make new character 2. Check mounts? That's about it. How many times have you recreated this bug: I have not made any more characters since, so no reproductions yet. Results: When people make new characters, they sometimes have bugged mount(s). Expected Results: There should be no mounts pre-existing on a fresh character.
  2. Hello I've started series of cars comparisons in 2018 when i bought Han Coywolf and wanted to compare it with the then meta car in face of Vegas 4x4, that's simple tests that somehow can be met by players and now it became more and more complex, even if for now only have 7 cars, so it can be very usefull/intersting for both newbies and veterans of the game P.s. i sometimes make an recounting, once i have better database i'll record the video with all changes P.p.s. inb4: there're no any bencmarks ingame or empty from NPCs districts so only one way to test is to apply timer in video montage program(tbh i didn't receive any complications about this, more ofthen about chronometrage anyway i searching for ways to cut time without harming the actual useful information) P.p.p.s. i very recommend you to watch video with Kurai and Moirai because it discoveres car, that nobody noticed how powerful it is So, enjoy! Spreadsheet(google) And videos:

    Clan Wars

    Clans not effective in game. Add clans wars, clan mods and clan map. Etc: Players can upgrade clan garage, deposit money to clan safe, donate to clan own vehicle.. It will make this game very better and more competitive. Lots of peoples playing for enjoy with friends. Not for farming..
  4. Hello! I'm Nufei, I've just started playing APB recently due to the revitalization of the game. As most newbies, I've heard of the incredible skill difference between those that have just started and veterans. Being totally honest with you, I'm not that good at FPSs but I would really enjoy playing it regardless of my lack of skills. If possible I would like to get with a clan that doesn't mind taking in new players and can teach them the unspoken rules and tips. Thanks for reading. Ah sorry. I'm on the NA server. (EDIT)
  5. Mitne Basic Newbie APB Guide Welcome in San Paro. In this guide I will answer many questions I had from newbies in way better form than tutorial in-game presents. It won't be just text but also prepared in-game screenshots. Of course I advice to try out in-game tutorial (by pressing T in-game you get inside it) but if you still don't know anything, this guide is intended to fill that gap. So let's get started - it will be done in form of QA - with possible question asked by any new player and answer to that: Q: Alright... I joined district... I click K to get ready... and I got no mission...? A: Simply click M and look up in the upper right - that's population of district [Picture 1]. [Picture 1] Ops... It seems it's empty. And even if it's not... - to start mission at least one side needs to have 2 people (either criminals or enforcers) - this also will start mission only for side meeting this requirement, if you are only one on your side you always will be called on defensive side of mission. Q: But how do I get to district with more players? A: Click esc and district select button [Picture 2] [Picture 2] Then after it you REALLY don't want to use basic view [Picture 3]... it's uber unreliable and will throw you at ANY free district of your threat... if you went gold or green that's totally not gonna work as both this servers are almost always empty... instead you press tab called "Advanced" [Picture 4] which shows you advanced view on all possible districts. [Picture 3] [Picture 4] You want to uncheck certain two ticks [Picture 5] so they won't hide server which are blooming with players right now. [Picture 5] PRO TIP: That's how you get to fight club with players too[Picture 6]! As basic view usually throw you into empty FC district (like one random player would help population of that server suddenly grow) [Picture 6] Edit: "Due to privaty concerns" - Sadly it sneaked in post-edit but i'm aware of grammar error. Thank you. Q: All enemies outshot me whenever I approach them. Are they cheaters? A: First of all. No - if everyone would cheat, this game would be long dead - for starter you need to accept fact that there are better players... it doesn't mean there are not worse than you, over time you will find that old enemies which dominated you, might fail to do anything near you in later stage of game. All it takes is patience. Second. Apply right tactic for right weapon. It's obvious thing that sniper rifle should be fired at range and shotgun in close quaters, rifles and ARs at mid-range and LMGs to be anti-personel and anti-car... but only if put in hotspots, well-covered. Some weapons also REQUIRE you to aim sight down (like sniper rifles, ARs, rifles) while other discourage you (like shotguns or SMGs). Third and last ALWAYS THINK. Enemies might try to ambush you, lure you but they got one clear disadvantage - they gonna understimate you. Especially after second or third try you might find that there was shift of powers... never give up and adapt to situation you are faced in. If you got idea you not sure gonna work, why not try it. It's only game after all! Q: I don't feel like playing missions... what else I can do? That depends on what side of conflict you are but contrary to popular belief, enforcers also can earn cash outside missions: Enforcers got three possible ways to gain money outside missions: 1. Witnessing criminals [Picture 7] [Picture 7] If you see criminal with symbol of handcuff, you can initiate witness mission (by clicking ALT) which is quick mission of who gonna secure dirty money from criminal in dedicated for that hideouts [Number 1 on Picture 7]. Beware though, you don't want chase criminal for few dollars, you can see how many money criminal have on him here [Number 2 on Picture 7]. As of now you can't witness criminals while sitting in car. 2. Hunting Notoriety 5 criminals [Picture 8] [Picture 8] By simply killing him you earn bounty put on his head, be on lookout on this. Word of advice though, this players are Notoriety 5 for a reason. This is also the only option here which earns you instant money. He/she is always shown on map and radar. 3. Looking for stolen cars (more rarely loot abandoned by criminals or vans containing it) [Picture 9] [Picture 9] Exactly here it should show what is name of car and what is actual state of it (it should be usable - stolen, due to wierd bug it don't show me that in screenshot but you can check it out in-game). I consider it the safest option to get money outside mission for enforcer and which should be done in full action districts. All you need to do is to lookout for cars, to see if car is stolen, look for marked reference in picture. You can't return commandered cars, only stolen ones! [Picture 10] More rare is that you find loot on streets, abandoned clearly by criminals (things like PCs, TVs, gold bars, jewelry itp.) Even more rare although possible is that you find stolen vans or other kind of cars with loot (see reference). If trunk of stolen car is filled it's most likely by loot which you can just take to near contact for pocket money Warning! After that always remember to visit evidence locker, money you get is money on hand until you visit evidence locker! Death means dropping "loot" on streets of San Paro where it can be taken by litteraly anyone. PRO TIP: Criminals don't have counter-option to get your "loot" so you can safely have on hand as much as you want... just make sure you gonna drop it. Criminals got four possible ways to gain money outside missions: 1. Looting shops [Picture 11] [Picture 11] Grab a van, ram the shop, load the car, unpack it at contact. Simple? Not much. You can be witnessed by enforcers (as described above in witnessing criminals). And if you just grabbed van from street, anyone just can sit inside and take it anywhere, taking your hard work with them. Consider using your own van. Packer Ceresco is the most spacious of all cars in-game which you can own. 2. Hunting Prestige 5 enforcers [Picture 12] [Picture 12] Litteraly the same thing as with enforcers. Kill bounty, earn instant money. He is always shown on map and radar. WARNING: Killing P5 enforcer AS enforcer will drop your prestige to 0, reducing your reward multiplier to 0,1. You really want to avoid that whatever you doing as this even affects how much you get for kills (in matches). 3. Mugging [Picture 13] [Picture 13] Go to any civilian walking on street, press F. Wait for timer to complete... profit. Also many of pedestrians drop small on-hand items which you can drop for additional loot at contacts. 4. Steal cars [Picture 14] [Picture 14] Infamous among criminals for being tiring and slow in comprasion to others. Grab car from streets, drive it to chop shop. Unlike enforcers you can grab any car (except player owned ones) and drop them at chop shop. Ka ching. Warning! After that always remember to visit laundry, money you get is money on hand until you visit laundry! Death means dropping "loot" on streets of San Paro where it can be taken by litteraly anyone. Warning! As criminal you can be witnessed with loot by enforcer, you can know if you are witnessable by looking here [Picture 15]. [Picture 15] Although after you got more than 2500$ of loot, you gonna be permantely witnessable until you drop loot at laundry - you get warning in chat if that happens too. [Picture 16] [Picture 16] Q: I keep getting mission from the same guy and I keep not advancing at all. Ugh... is there way to farm some other? A: You should ALWAYS pledge to one contact you desire to level up. By either interacting with contact directly [Picture 17] or via double-clicking contact on map using M [Picture 18] you can enter contact window and pledge to them [Picture 19]. [Picture 17] [Picture 18] [Picture 19] Also note that Financial and Waterfront contacts are unique and each needs to be pledged in their respectable districts. Q: What are this joker tickets, how I can earn them and what I can do with them? A: Joker Tickets are tokens granted for you for activites in APB. You can earn them either by completing objectives of FC (shown both at basic district selection screen, via FC window (f7) and in upper corner of screen [Picture 20]) or getting mission to earn them from fully completed contacts only [Picture 21]. JTs can be used to purchase items from Joker Distribution at Social District [Picture 22] to purchase many items (excluding permanent weapons, sorry! Although you can lease many which are in ARMAs Marketplace [Picture 23]) [Picture 20] [Picture 21] [Picture 22] [Picture 23] Q: I run out of ammo... also how I can change my weapon? This starter weapon sucks. A: For ammo - Go to any ammo distributor, press F to buy certain type of ammo (it will show if it's for your primary, secondary or grenade slot weapons [Picture 24]). You can also press I to get ammo for holded weapon immediatly [Picture 25]). Use whatever you feel better with. Edit: As of last updates, it's not longer true. You can't run out of ammo as long as you got money to purchase it. My advice though is to always keep some ammo on hand as you might run out of ammo after you lose your money in some way (like via purchase). [Picture 24] [Picture 25] To change weapon, you first need to have some or lease one. Since you most likely want to have free to play experince, you for now should only lease - do it by interacting with contact, going into buy tab [Picture 26] and selecting weapons [Picture 27]. After purchase it will ask you to deploy it. You can always swap weapons in any car spawner or ammo distributor using I [Picture 28]. [Picture 26] [Picture 27] [Picture 28] Q: My car sucks! I saw players having this muscle cars and... A: ...they pay for respawning it. 100$ since it's tier 3 car. As someone who is litteraly broke on start you should stand with your starter or so called tier 0 cars - it's every car which cost 5,000$ for zero slot version, they cost 0$ for every respawn but they are underpowered. All of them are used by civilians so you can get good feel about what you gonna get by just commandering or stealing cars and driving them around. Don't worry, you will find out how to get better cars soon - it just my starting recommendation for you. Edit: If you really want better car - the best would be getting some decent tier 1 car - their cost is 20,000$ for zero slot version, they cost 25$ for second and further respawn of car and among them are cars such as Packer Ceresco and as you work your rank up, so you should work your cars up (but in my personal opinion, you should always keep useful cars around - just like Packer Ceresco, just in case). Q: I want to group up with someone, how? How to create clans? How to ignore someone who annoys me? A: All of this can be done via pressing U. Each tab represent each problem, you get easily around it as everything is described [Picture 29]. [Picture 29] Q: How do I change my clothing? Or theme, symbol? A: Everything can be done in Social District. Use map to navigate to kiosk corresponding your needs [Picture 30]. [Picture 30] I hope you survived to the end as you grasped basics to get you started! Good luck out there! If there are any questions which are left unanswered, please ask them in this thread. Edit: Updated guide, checked for grammar errors.
