While Mobage's iOS shooter Lawless may not be the deepest game experience you can get your hands on - it's an arcade style run-and-gun affair, after all - it's certainly entertaining, and there's a lot of potential in the weapons and crew members you can unlock.
Here are some useful tips to help you get started in the game.
