what is the point of the offshore account?

#1buzzsawgr81Posted 8/16/2013 10:48:33 AM
other than realism and story, do I ever get to do anything with this money? it is very stupid that I'm make several hundred thousand dollars per mission but I only get to use a thousand to buy my guns etc., all the rest goes into this offshore account. I want that money to buy and upgrade my guns, not keep it in some account that has no gameplay purpose.

I think it's just an overall score count.

I think that will be later used to upgrade the Safehouse and some other options.

I hope so cause I'm tired of doing jobs and only coming out with a few thousand that I can do anything with and around a mil. in my account that does nothing. I personally think the currency system is very broken in this game. the fact that you have to spend money to get skills is stupid as hell.

I think its fine because the only other thing you spend money on is masks and new weapons. Since the weapon mods are free. I think you only pay like $1,000 to attach them. At least that's what I remember from the beta on PC.

Some of the more expensive weapon mods can cost over $100,000 to attach. That's when it gets a little ridiculous. You also need to pay the fee again if you detach and re-attach a mod.

yeah, but those things cost a s*** ton of money and you get next to no money for doing the jobs. I also think that you should get 3-4x the money if you're playing solo since you're doing all the work and it's much harder.

I have the game, but I'm waiting for my friends to get their copies before I start playing. But having watched a lot of beta play, payment scales up. So early on 15-20k is decent, then 50k , so on etc etc... Stealth and quick times help too.

Watchdogs can be a spendable cash goldmine. Moving all the bags on Hard or Very Hard and the whole crew escaping can net you at least a couple hundred grand.
