Im sorry if this question has already been asked or answered. I'm a low level 100s, and I see alot of people building gaitling turrets now. I know the more defense buildings you have, the more you can fend off robberies. It boost your defense score as well in your profile. My question is : Do they help you against attacks? Are you more likely to win more fights if someone attack you repeatedly, depends on the more turrets you have?

Thanks all.

GTs are just regular defense buildings. The reason you see so many people building them at that level is because they have a small footprint. Other defense buildings take up a lot of valuable space.

Or so they can do building goals. Thats probably another reason why.

So they won't help with fending off attacks at all?

I dont think any defense buildings helps with rivals attacking you in any way and only half help you when trying to get robbed. Thats what i have heard. The only defense buildings i have in my hood right now is 1 missle turret and a level 8 machine gun turret.

defense buildings are useful for both fights and robberies. there is a lot of confusion around contribution of defense buildings. the general consensus is lvl 1 buildings contribute in full with diminishing rates with leveling up. my preference is upgrading defense structures to level 3.

personally, i like gatling turrets and missile turrets for their space efficiency. muay thai is another space efficient building.

Look at the Mafia D for each building. The numbers listed there are what the building provides you against attacks vs other players.

So they do help against attacks? Let's say you are a Tycoon, build 50 turrets, level them all up to level 3. That's 96 X 50 = 4800. That's almost 5000 defense to your stats.

I don't care about robberies. I make enough that if I lose 10k to robberies, I don't care. I just want to fend off attacks so my Fight Lost numbers don't take a hit.

50 level 3 gattling turrets will provide you with 2500 defense against attacks. (50 X 50 = 2500)

You get the full amount at level 1 (25) then half of that every level of the buildings. So level 2 will be 25+12.5=37.5, Level 3 will be 25+12.5+12.5=50, and so forth.

The Tycoon bonus does not increase your defense received from the buildings vs player attacks.

Most of us didn't know it either when we were spending real money on Gold defense buildings like bodyguard agencies. It wasn't until Funzio created the fight result screen with attack and defense stats that people on the boards figured it out. At least we think we have it figured out, nobody at Funzio will say for sure.

I have read a lot of posts regarding defense building here on forum.

To cut a long story short:
1. Defense buildings vs attack from players: they give veeeery small amount of defense
but I dont care about this because I keep all my money in a bank
2. Defense buildings vs robberies: they give full amount of defense
this is very important to me, I dont like when my building are robbed by other players

so I will keep on upgrading all defense buildings to level 10
