Investing Arthurs Money

Recommended Posts

CapoV91

I'll try not to spoil this as best I can but since what happens to Arthur after chapter 6 happens... my question is what should I put my money into that the next protagonist can also use?

Tbh, nowhere, as you end up with plenty of money once you finish the game. 

 

And money ain’t really needed in the epilogue anyways

I am really enjoying the post Epilogue / credits world having finished the story without following up everything and I am using the money now to get all the weapons and different horses.  As I hadn’t found all the treasure in the story part of the game I am still earning to replace spending.  Currently setting out to ride the borders of the whole territory and see what adventures I find.  Just been attacked by a bunch of Mexican bandits.

Depends how you play!

 

I left some of the collectibles and almost all of the challenges to do as John - but I also want the final mission of the game, if at all possible, to be the one that takes me to 100%.

 

So I've spent much of the epilogue being pretty skint! All those bandit challenges have lead to quite a lot of bounties (I'm not a careful bandit!)....and because I've got so much hunting to do, I've been paying them off. I have genuinely needed the money from cigarette cards, exotics and hunting requests to keep me in the black!

not true, use the pig farm to store cash in chapter 6, go back in ep 2 and get it back.

If I remember correctly, I had about $1400 when I did the Pig Farm, so no point even trying to save that for later, as when you finish the game you get 20K anyways.

GTA IV might be the only Rockstar game that comes to mind while searching for a somewhat balanced story economy. 

 

If I remember well, GTA IV rewards players with a Trophy/Achievement when $500,000 is stored in the bank. 

 

Depending on how you play, this is pretty much the amount of money you'll finish the game with and most of that amount will come from main missions earnings. Maybe less if you spend alot on weapons and ammo, which I don't. 

 

Side activities such as Little Jacob and Badman's drug runs and Brucie's car exports should be completed organically through the story as soon as they are unlocked, as the payouts are weak and practically become obsolete once you reach the later stages of the game. 

 

One thing that is implied in the game is that Niko loses much of his money to Roman's gambling addiction but for obvious gameplay purposes we get to keep our money and that's where the separation in terms of narrative and actual gameplay stems from.

 

In GTA V Michael starts with over $100,000 and with Trevor you can very early either buy Mackenzie airfield for $150,000 or keep the money. Franklin becomes rich after the first heist, and can either invest in stock markets through Lester's missions and become a millionaire quite rapidly, or purchase your first business (Smoke On The Water) and secure yourself a neat passive income of $9000 per in game week. 

 

In GTA San Andreas you can hundreds of thousands of dollars before even reaching Angel Pine solely through collecting turf money, and even then that's from a roleplay perspective where we leave plenty of turf to ennemy control. 

 

It's the same with RDR2. 

 

To add: Thinking of it some more. RDR comes to mind as well. I remember in RDR I had to do continuous night surveillance at MacFarlane's Ranch in order to earn my keep and afford ammo, maps and overall basics. Bounties were relevant, too.

I had over $20,000 with Arthur in chapter 3; I was addicted to hunting and robbing people. By time I got to chapter 6 I had close to $30,000.

 

It really doesn't matter because you don't need much money, but if you want to do this, it's there.

The best thing to do to carry some money over to John is to hold on to some gold bars / emeralds, high value items that can be sold to the fence. You do not lose these in the transition.

You do lose all your money, but not the valuables.

aside of paying the bounties, i think you do not need such a big load of money. And if you do not do the challenges nor like to kill people for no reason at all, you will start feeling like a walking bank in no time

If I could give myself advice, it would be to buy all the guns. Having to save up and buy in the epilogue is a bit of a chore until endgame.

Yeah i did this for the most part. Pretty much only thing you can do with the money.

You retain valuables such as gold bars in the Epilogue so it’s not worth cashing them in unless you really need to spend it on something. I get the gold bar from Limpany in Chapter 2 for an early cash boost and sell it but all the others I retain as missions give Arthur enough cash.

 

Beyond that, it’s definitely worth buying enough Premium Ciggarettes to get all the cards before the end of Chapter 6 (assuming you have the Legend of the East Satchel) which is likely to cost around 2k.

 

You might as well buy all the weapons you can too, especially if going for 100%, also craft any trinkets, talismans and buy pamphlets you don’t have already as you’ll retain them.

Won't you keep all your provisions, ingredients, tonics and such too? It might be worth it to buy those things and max out your satchel before chapter 6 ending to bring over to John.
