Tackle organised crime

From Old School RuneScape Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Tackle organised crime is a minigame in which players help the Shayzien soldiers raid gang meetings in order to keep order in Great Kourend. In order to help take out gangsters, players must have 40% Shayzien favour.

Players can find out where gang meetings are about to take place by talking to Captain Ginea in the building directly east of the combat ring. Every 30 minutes, the noticeboard will give out the location of a gang meeting. After reading the notice, players are prompted to take a note to remind players of the location (needed if gaining favour).

Participating in a gang bust is advised when possible, as they are a good source for oak, teak and mahogany planks. One can easily obtain 100% favour by going to multiple gang meetings as they are not synchronised; it is also cheaper than cannoning lizardmen in the canyon.

The location of the gang meeting follows a rotation shared by all servers, asynchronously. This means that every world will go through the same sequence of locations, but in an un-coordinated fashion. While a specific world might be holding a gang meeting, another world could already be timing down for the next one. Some worlds are coordinated, possibly because hosted on the same servers or in the same server facility; these tend to be worlds assigned to the same country and with sequential numbers, for example 303 and 304 for germany, and 306 and 307 for the US west coast.

Gang bosses and gangsters[edit | edit source]

A player attacks the gang boss.

In each meeting are multiple gangsters and a gang boss. The amount of gangsters that attend vary, ranging from 4-10 at a time. The weapons the gang members use vary from gang to gang; gangsters may use longswords, warhammers, halberds or their fists to attack the player. The gang bosses either use a cutlass or throwing knives. When a gangster or gang boss is attacked, all the gang members will turn aggressive towards the player. In single-way areas, gangsters will attempt to attack the player; if they are in combat with another gang member, they will attack once the gang member they are fighting dies.

Five minutes after the meeting begins, any remaining gang members will attempt to leave the area. Non-aggroed gangsters become un-attackable, and shortly disappear. Aggroed gangsters will remain in the area so long as one gangster is in active combat; immediately after all active skirmishes cease they will become un-targetable and disappear. This happens as soon as a gangster dies so it is impossible for lone players to drag a meeting into overtime. Wounded gangsters may die instead of disappearing.

Rewards[edit | edit source]

Training manual detail.png

Killing a gangster gives 2% Shayzien favour, while killing a gang boss gives 10%. Intelligence can also be found from killing gang members; gangsters uncommonly drop them while gang bosses will always drop them. This can be handed to Ginea for a training manual, which when read gives experience in Attack, Strength, Defence or Hitpoints.

Participating in a gang bust is advised when possible, as they are a good source for oak, teak and mahogany planks. One can easily obtain 100% favour by going to multiple gang meetings as they are not synchronised; it is also cheaper than cannoning lizardmen in the canyon.
