    There are 39 Gang Upgrades. They are listed here with money cost, and resources needed. Some upgrades require specific missions to be completed and/or have level restrictions.

    All the Swindler category upgrades (especially City Takeover, which gives discounts on other upgrades) and the Little Rooks upgrade will help you collect the necessary funds and resources more efficiently. You just have to remember to collect the funds from your train hideout. Also, the Loot Takedown and Scavenger I & II character skills help with resource gathering.

    IntoTheDark7Do you need to grind cash for this achievement or should you have enough though completing the other achievements? If it's a grind, are there any good tips?

    TheDude722The earlier comments above and the solution tell you the necessary upgrades/skills you should go for first. Those will lessen the grind a bit.

    TheDude722Just make sure to withdraw your funds from your train safe before it maxes out.

    IntoTheDark7Will do, thanks.

    MikeyoligyI found a nice place to grind easy money was the last fight club in Westminster. I needed about 4 more upgrades, and it gives £6000 for about 10 minutes work. Gets tedious after a few goes, but worth it to get over the line.

    Seeker74The many boat missions (Smuggler Ships (untimed) and Boat Raids (timed 2:30-3:30)) on the Thames are a very fast way to make money (maybe not as fast as Fight Clubs, but less tedious) once you've leveled up a bit (recommended for the area by the game is level 4). The enemies usually are below your level, but some are at the same level as you.

    zamacgod303After I cleared the safe I left my box on over night last night the controller turned off this morning I had a full safe with 48,000 in it it helped immensely

    TheAnonymityI recommend saving this achievement for last, as it makes the game SUPER easy once you've added all the gang upgrades.
