For a while now, when ever you ranked you got, majority of the time, a reward, whether it be a couple of crates of beer to a Police car. However, it seems these are not based on rank achieved, rather just a random generated reward.
The Buzz took to the Game Forum in an attempt to find out what the general public thought, and wanted. FreakStreak said that the rewards should be tier based. Scum to Thug would get a certain type of reward, such as $5,000 to $60,000 randomly, and Don and upwards would get $1,000,000 to $5,000,000 or maybe a Police Car, giving a better reward for the hard effort most put in to getting those higher ranks. Also suggested to the public was how about a selection of rewards. For example, if you reached a certain rank, you were given a choice of what you would like your reward to be, $10,000 or 100 bullets. You could then select the reward which best suited your style of criminal career. NewAccountName did throw in a comment which he does have a point though, "reward for ranking...ranking, isn't that already the reward for playing the game? Shooting becomes easier, getting killed harder, able to carry more booze, more stocks, bigger crimes, easier to find OCs or even get paid to join but that's old Bootleggers I guess." Abii added, "The Elite Guard could add some "redeemable" items to the reward system. The items could go on the Profile->Vote page and be like half crime timer for 1hr but the user can activate (redeem) it whenever they like. This then wouldn't cause inflation but may cause more activity."

The Buzz caught up with Caboose to try and get a few stats in the last 7 days, regarding the rewards giving out. Caboose wanted to inform the readers first that the rewards were never supposed to increase with rank. It was just added as a little bonus to go along with ranking, and to find out more, contact Mika, so we did.

The rank rewards were originally introduced by Sky with exactly the idea in mind that Caboose described. He (Sky) wanted to offer the players just a little something for ranking up. A little present, if you will. Keyword being little.

So, the below is a summary of what has been rewarded in the last 7 days, to give you an idea of what can be earned, and to show that it doesn't relate to rank either.
