I tried hacking for the first time a few days ago after completing the ed course and was wondering if anybody can give me some general info about hacking, and the differences between hacking a bank and hacking an fbi mainframe, such as:

Success rate (i have assumed fbi is harder and have only done bank so far)
Crime exp gains
exp losses
browns vs reds

and is this information (from tcbasic) correct:
Crime and outcomes:
Hack into a Bank Mainframe - $200,000 - $400,000
Hack the F.B.I Mainframe - $104,747 - $410,405

Ps: i searched the forums a little but couldnt find anything particularly helpful or relevant.

If you love your NB I would suggest not doing them until you have a solid 45 for several years, even then you will fail a lot. Pay is good but it is not worth NB loss. Fbi seems to be hardest with best crime experience that is just my opinion of course you will have Noobs who will swear its the other way around.


This belongs in questions forums btw....

Wouldn't recommend fbi at all, I do the bank a lot. I'm pretty successful at it with only a 30 Nb. I fail once in a while, but mostly am successful. Most of the times I've tried fbi, I failed. I don't even bother anymore. I have 3 merits on crime success and about 120k intel as well as a few computer courses. I can't remember ever seeing brown on either of these two, I'm pretty sure you either get green/red.

I prefer bank hacking... I find I fail less at it than with fbi... also when my rewards start getting lower than 250k i switch back to arsons for a day or so... I do arsons often too to protect my nb against a faill

thanks for the info and advice guys, think i will just stick to hacking the bank and mix in some other crimes. If it is so much harder/ more risky to do fbi i dont see the point.. If the tcbasic info is correct the bank is the best bet financially too.

ya but once you get a 450k reward, say the 10k from an arson just doesn't entice you much anymore

too many reds and you won;t even be able to get 10k from an arson.

I lost my 45 nb after only 12-13 fails in GTA showroom. It took me over 500 arson warehouse to get it back...

Getting a red from hacking is worse than getting a red from GTA. If you value your crime exp, you won't do hacking very often.

I normally go after the bank mainframe because they give out a better amount than the FBI mainframe

I've done many hacking crime. I've never noticed a difference in their random jails. I prefer to do the FBI, because I seem to get more on average. but be careful. you can lose alot of crime experience if you get caught.

i'm pretty new but as i read and experiencedd from noobish crimes that speed helps a lot.
i was getting reds and read about speed helping not to get jailed (i do not say it makes green, it makes reds calm down to browns). But i just worked on speed (till lvl 10 or so) since i had no one to attack or nothing to defend.
But if it's your main source of income, spending in speed does not seem to be worthless in order not to get reds.
