Building and Upgrading Armory
At level 3, you will be able to build the armory under the Estate tab. Just like other buildings in game, you can upgrade Armory for certain cost as well as time counter. The higher level of your Armory, the higher level equipment and gears that you can wear. However, you DO NOT need to have high level armory in order to “sell” the gears or loots if you can hit the higher level Gangs sooner.
Obtaining Armory Items
You have a certain chance to obtain loots by attacking Gangs. You will have a chance of receiving the armory items with a level equivalent to the level of Gangs that you have defeated. It should be noted that the Gang should have at least 50% of its units restored from previous defeat to drop the armory items.
Equipping Armory Items
You can equip the Godfather: 5 Families armory gears that you have obtained by click on the armory. You can then select the Armory to receive the various boosts that these armory gears provide.
Each armory items can be divided into Level ranking, then they have different qualities determined by Bronze, Silver, or Gold. Each tier has two items that boost attack, and two items that boost health.
The basic formula for the armory item is as followed:
Bronze items: 5% attack or health times level of item
Silver items: 6% attack or health times level of item
Gold items: 7.5% attack or health times level of item
Based on this simple formula, you can see that as level increases, the quality of the item becomes even more important. The highest level 10 Five Families Armory equipment can boost your attack and health up to 150% total when all 4 items are equipped.
Now you will also receive a special set bonus when you equip the same level same quality gear for all 4 of your slots. The Five Family set bonus formula is calculated as follows:
Bronze Set Boost: (5% x Level) resource production bonus
Silver Set Boost: (5% x Level) resource and Cash production bonus
Gold Set Boost: (5% x Level) additional Respect gained
Special Note on Gold Set: the information on the stat screen can be deceiving when it says +X% respect, it does not automatically boost your respect score, instead it increase the amount of respect that you earn when you fight other players.
Selling Armory Items
Selling armory items is a great way to boost your Cash in the Godfather: Five Families. To sell the armory items, you can head into the armory and right click on the items.
Note that there is a bug if you sell the items when the duplicate of them are equipped, you will sell the equipped items first. To fix it, simply refresh the game, and you will be able to equip the gears back.
The amount of gold that you gain by selling armory items are as followed:
Bronze Gear Selling Price: 100 Cash x Level
Silver Gear Selling Price: 1200 Cash x Level
Gold Gear Selling Price: 12000 Cash x Level
Based on this formula, you can notice that Gold gear items will fetch a really good price, especially at higher level gangs. This makes attacking and gaining armory items at higher level a really great way to earn more Cash in the Godfather: Five Families. You should also note that this money is great because they cannot be stolen by your enemy Families.
