Which professions are available to me in DarkRP?

In DarkRP, the player must have a profession. Depending on the server, the range of available professions varies. There are server rules for living together and practicing professions as realistically as possible. If these are not observed, because the player does not follow his daily routine, it comes to server exclusion.

The spectrum of professions in DarkRP ranges from

  • police officer,
  • including superiors like the police chief
  • to doctors,
  • citizens,
  • arms dealers
  • to members of the mafia
  • and rebels.
