This guide will show you how to make quick and easy money in Empire of Sin by using trading.
Best way to make quick money in Empire of Sin
Once you are done with the tutorial, start exploring the map. Depending on your game settings, the neighborhood you start in should have 2 major factions, and one minor faction.
You want to meet all the factions locally, then spread further out as you need more alcohol. What this does is, it gives them time to build up their reserves again.
Once you have met some, and sat down with them (don’t get into combat with the factions), then you are ready. You have to make sure that you have at least one major faction, and one minor faction you can begin with. Why a minor faction? The reason is that they have unlimited money so they will always buy.
Start by buying all the swill off the faction. The barrels are worth roughly $2.00 each. Don’t be afraid to give them a little extra cash on top as it will help the trade score.
Once you have bought all the swill you can simply open up the trade screen again select the minor faction and as you select the swill to sell it, change the packaging to whisky. The AI will offer you whisky prices for swill.
Accept the trade and you are pretty much done. You’ve bought the cheapest booze you can get in the game, and sold it to a smaller faction at much higher prices.
You are capped at around 150 barrels at early game, which means once the snowball starts, your trading limit should generate roughly $7000 per trade. This is not bad considering the Cost Price is $300 only.
As you explore more of the map, and meet new factions they will boost your trading by letting you rinse wash and repeat with fresh swill, while you wait for others to grow there reserves again.
The game will continue while you are trading. And eventually if you fall behind, the factions will come looking for a fight. So don’t forget to use the money to quickly upgrade your buildings and visit the black market. Of course once you get your own brewery up and running, you can just sell your own swill as whisky without buying it.
