The start up money needed for running is peanuts.

i know some players buying properties to lower level players and as soon as the deal is done they attack them so get money from robbing cause the lower levelled player did not get the chance to stock his money into a safe place

attack me and earn monney

win and leave me 30k

loose 50k

win and hositalize or rob me nothing

buy yucca plant 50

sell morph 40k

if you attack for monney let me know

if you attack me show your name!

Flower Running
Drug Running
Item Trading
Stock Market (trading/benefit blocks)
Property Trading/Leasing

Depending on your money level, one or a mix of these is how you make money.

This.

There's no quick route to cash. I flower ran until I could afford FHC stock then sold the coupons. Bookies helps, but I've turned 1b into 10m a lot quicker than I've turned 10m into 1b.

With so many people able to pick winners in Torn, why aren't you billionaires in real life? They use real life odds so if you're so great at picking winners, why are you playing for fake money?

I am actually learning on that through this game. Secondly, my pot in real life isn't as big as this game. Unlike torn where money can be earned quickly with a few clicks, once you lost in gamble you gotta regain that loss back through time, blood, and sweat.


The odds are NOT real life odds. (TC Bookies is way tighter sometimes)

They are in horse racing I know for sure, copied straight from Ladbrokes etc.

NOT in football though - there are a large number of errors in the odds that are offered by the Bookie. Possibly someone from US is setting up the UK football odds sometimes. There is a tendancy for TC to favour the home team a lot - when the game actually favours the away team - and so do the UK real life Bookies.

You gotta only bet on a sport you know well, and a result you 'more than' think is likely. Then check Bookies and see if the odds are good.

Then go for it.

As posted above, you may win little betting on the favourites, but over time it only takes a few underdogs to actually win you more.

Plus slutting, joining IRC #drugden to get lowest drug prices abroad can make you good $$.

It is all about that maxed bank - then every 3 months you gain 630 mill to invest/buy stocks etc. You then get it again in 3 more months. 3 months only as an example.

I always suggest that people hang out in the lottery/giveaway chatrooms on IRC. There's a great number of them and if you idle in all of them, participate in the chat and lotteries, you're bound to win some great stuff and honestly make an income with it if you're active enough.



Is waiting about for a handout really a good way to make money?

I have 2,000,000 and I don't understand how people can make enough to buy Private Islands and start huge companies and factions. How did you guys come across your riches? And how can I turn my 2,000,000 into 2,000,000,000??


I may not be the best source for information since I have a 500k ID and half a billion total, but I've spent half my career inactive and the other half a very casual player and still made that 500 mil, a private Island with full staff, etc.

Short answer is that the game used to be very different than it is now. The stock market used to be super easy. You used to be able to pay a million in stock and get the box of medical supplies, back when morphine went for 40-50k each. The bookie used to have an infinite limit, so if you were good at watching the NFL, you had an easy way to double your money every week. If you found a stat enhancer in the old days, you could convert it to enough stock to get awesome stock benefits. They changed those benefits a year or two ago, so now you have to have a big fortune to make a small fortune.

But every new feature has a potential for making you money. Bread, when it was first introduced into the game, sold for 20 mil. Energy drinks used to cost 3 times what they cost now. Keep your eyes opened any time anything changes, and you'll grab something.


Making signatures gives me anxiety.

Ways you can make money legitimately (scamming isn't against the rules thus counts as a legitimate way of making money, it is frowned upon though and many will consider it illegitimate with the "earn your own money" ideology same applies to mugging) This list is not ordered it's just a random list of things I can think of at the moment.

1. Sell Revives
2. Bust / Bail & hope people are friendly enough to reward you
3. Sell spies
4. Travel to foreign countries and buy items such as flower E.g. Travel to the UK and buy Heather.
5. Merchant, buy items from the market place basic concept; Buy low, Sell high.
6. Sell spies
7. Rent yourself as a chainer to factions
8. Get high nerve bar and do 18 NB crimes (Hacking bank mainframe)
9. Buy donator packs with real world money and sell for TC $
10. Use the casino (with caution) for blackjack / lottery / poker, whatever floats your metaphorical boat.
11. Become a slut (Attack people and lose on purpose for money).
12. Become a slut (prostitute yourself).
13. Turn your character female. Guys love females.
14. Party like it's your birthday.
15. Scam (And become an outcast to the community).
16. Complete missions.
17. Be a generally nice and helpful person in-game and maybe your friends will help you out when you're desperate.
18. join a faction that pays you for organised crimes.
20. join a faction that rewards you for being an active chainer.
21. join IRC chats and compete in fun competitions.
22. Compete in player hosted forum competitions.
23. Compete in faction / company competitions.
24. Mug people.
25. Get lucky and find a good item around the city.
26. Sell graphics e.g. Profile sigs.
27. Collect bounties.
28. Invest money in the bank.
29. Invest money in stocks.
30. Get a high paying job E.g. Oil Rig (Appropriate job stats required.)
31. Search the dump (Possible to find "OK" Items highest value item I've found was 100k)

I'm sure there are more... but these can get you started.

P.S. It may seem like it's taking forever to make money, but hard work will pay off, you won't become an instant billionaire overnight unless you get lucky. It will take time to get where you want to be that's why it's called a "long term goal".

9:26:56 AM You have won the bet on the NRL: New Zealand Warriors v Manly Sea Eagles game! You bet $10,000,000 on New Zealand Warriors and won $22,500,000! Your check will be held in the bank for up to 24 hours.

09/06/13
11:15:30 PM You have lost the bet you made on the ODI. New Zealand v Sri Lanka Cricket match.

Both 10mil bets so in the washout I did come out slightly in front, however unless you know the sports well you will lose more in the long run, I dread to think what I have lost there


You bet on the Warriors? Wow, brave bet! You never know with them. I thought they were definitely gonna go down to the Broncos or the Eagles. Good match to watch.

To the OP, Took me a looooong time to get the cash for a P.I I was very inactive and basically sold morphs I gained from the Hospital and spies from the army.

You have placed your bet of $17,000,000 on Chicago Blackhawks.
Match starts at: Jun 13th 01:05
Winnings will be given some time after the match is over.

Good luck!

Not sure if i'm going to win this.

Since nobody can read my profile. No I do not want to join your faction nor do I plan to in the future. Your just wasting both of our time.
