Easy Unlimited Cash Farming Guide
Unlimited Money Method:
To farm cash, you’ll first need to reach the Hall of Heroes. This can be done either leaving the area, or right as you start.
On the right side of the steps leading to the entrance of the building, look for a vending machine. This machine can be possessed, providing a random sum of cash that usually averages out to 25 Silver Eagles.
Next, enter the Hall of Heroes and run down the hall to refill your salt. Then, leave and return to the previous vending machine to possess it again.
Rinse and repeat the process to earn cash. Possess the vending machine, enter the Hall of Heroes, refill Salts, then return to the exterior to possess the machine again. This can be repeated as often as needed.
If you’ve cleared the area, the enemies outside the Hall of Heroes will also continue to respawn over and over, allowed you to loot them as often as you’d like — or you can use them to unlock achievements!
The containers outside will also respawn, as will bodies and any loose cash. Loot these extra sources of income for other randomized bonuses, or just a few more Silver Eagles.
- Lockpicks will consistently respawn after completing the Hall of Heroes. On the way out of the building (Following the fight with Slate) you’ll be able to ride two sky-lines to an enemy encounter.
- Among the enemies, there’s a Firefighter that will always drop a lockpick. Defeat him and collect the pick, then you can simply return to the Hall of Heroes. Enter the door, then go back outside to find the same Firefighter respawned down the sky-lines.
- Rinse and repeat to fill up on lockpicks.
