Prestige and Notoriety are utilized as a money multiplier system. Having low Prestige and Notoriety will give you less money, while having higher levels will give you more money. The highest level will put a District-wide bounty on your head, which will alert every player. Expect the opposing faction to try and eliminate you.
There are 6 levels. Having 0 Prestige/Notoriety will give you heavily reduced rewards. The money multiplier differs for both factions slightly. Criminals have the ability to gain Notoriety at a much faster rate, due to all the actions that count towards it.
