Back with another huge update to Broke Protocol v0.65 featuring gangs, bosses, and territories that can be conquered. This update aims to expand gameplay and offer an outlet for those who want to do something productive with their trigger finger. You can gang up, do hits on enemy gangs, take their territory, and get paid a salary to do just that!
To get started, look for the conspicuous contract icons dotted around the city on your map. These are gang bosses that can be talked to and joined up with. The gangs include the Italian mafia: Borgata Blu.
The American Green St. Fam
... and the Latin Rojo Loco
Once you join a crew, check out the in-game map (M by default) and look for enemy colored territories.
Kill 3 enemy gangsters in their turf to start a war. Now wait for in ambush as waves of enemy AI defenders come your way. Defeat them all and win a territory for you team. AI will spawn and defend your territories but be proactive and back them up if you see an enemy gang intruding on your turf!
