Mafia is not an easy sport. Mafia can be challenging, especially for newcomers. This guide provides some tips and tricks to make it easier.
This game has been a favorite of mine since childhood. This guide contains everything I discovered about the game that wasn’t immediately obvious during my first playthrough.
It’s certainly not all. So please comment with your tips and tricks. I’ll be happy to add them to this list.
Before you play
Take a look at the tutorial. It will teach you important things
Modify your controls. Mafia’s default controls are insane. Many key binds don’t make sense. It can be changed to your liking.
Cross and dot are the best ways to aim.
Tips for every mission – general tips
Before you leave Salieri’s bar, talk to Frank, Salieri and Luigi. They might have some hidden dialogue for you.
Ralph will teach you how he can steal a car. But you don’t have to drive that car.
It is often better to get a different Ralph car for your needs.
Side rolls with enabling features can make it difficult for you to aim long distances. It might be worth not using it.
Tips & Tricks for Every Mission – General Driving Tips
Letting your foot off the gas when turning at high speeds is better.
In this game, primary and secondary controls don’t do the same.
- Primary controls turn the wheels gradually.
- Secondary controls instantly turn wheels to the maximum.
Secondary controls can be used to turn your car at high speeds. This will give you greater control. Primary controls allow for greater precision.
Honking will get other vehicles out of your way.
Tips & Tricks for Car Chases
You will be pursued. There will be a lot of them. By police or other gangsters. Driving into tight spaces is the best tip I can give to you to escape. There are indestructible items like fences and poles. It’s a great way for your followers to get lost. These objects are how AI works in this game.
Tips & Tricks for Every Mission – Dealing with Police
The police enforce this game. Driving over a trashcan, running a stop sign and other offenses are punishable. The cars in this game are slow, and the police rubberband heavily. It’s best just to pay the fine.
If you are driving, it is okay to ignore the police officers. They will still try to convince you, and it can be challenging to get rid of them.
You can drive through a red light without alerting the police. Simply drive around the traffic lights and walk on the sidewalk. Police won’t notice you if you hit any pedestrians.
You can turn car-policemen into on-foot officers. After they try to convince you, stop the car and wait until they come to you. They may want to arrest or take you out of the car. Start driving once they have arrived at your car. But only for a moment. The policeman will turn around to go to their car but they will return to your vehicle if you don’t stop driving. You can keep doing this to get them out of your car. If they stop returning in their car, they can drive off and you will have no chance of them catching you on foot.
The police symbol (handcuffs, fine or gun) can be greyed out/transparent. This sign that the police know who you are but are not directly seeing you. If you’re in one), you can exit a vehicle (or enter a vehicle (if your on foot). The police will get confused. Then you can either walk away or drive off without any problem—video demonstration.
An Offer You Can’t Refuse
Continue straight until reaching a small parking lot. Take the first left turn. There is a small, pedestrian-only alley on your right that leads to Twister Cinema. Follow that alley and carefully climb the few stairs at the end. Morello’s gangsters are not likely to make the jump. It’s easy to accomplish the mission with their car tuned on its side.
As you exit the last passageway there is a woman waiting to be married. You can speak to her.
There’s a small box that you can grab once you reach Morello’s Bar. It can be used to block the backdoor.
You can also exit a car without removing the engine. To turn off your engine, press the exit key. Next, press and hold the forward button. Tommy will now be able to exit the car, but it will still run. To speed up your escape, do this with the Falconer.
You can pick Paulie up while you’re on your way or leave him there. He will be there on his own. You can even watch him drive the Bolt Ace he arrived in.
To avoid the final car chase you can grab the wheel from the yellow parking lot in front Clark’s Motel.
Alternativly, you can also shoot through the second window to the right. As you shoot this window, you will hear a man screaming in pain. The mission ends when you kill him.
In the Clark’s motel, there is a Thompson-wielding gangster who lives behind a bar. Shoot some of the bottles from behind the bar, and then shoot the light above it. The gangsters will light up.
A Thompson can be found in one of the motel rooms.
You can go to the toilets and take a pee.
The legendary racing mission. How to beat it even if you’re terrible at driving
You will see a U-turn right at the start. Break faster and leave it on the grass. This will give you an advantage over other racers.
You should only hit the brakes for the first turn and after the downhill section with chicane. Every other turn, drive carefully and try not to break. You can let the gas pedal go if you need, but don’t let it go.
The chicane is just driving over grass. It won’t be a problem for your car.
Manual shifting is the best option if you want extra speed. Third gear should only be used in the finish straight or downhill with chicane. You can use second in every other situation. The car will scream and accelerate like mad, but the speed gains can be huge.
You can fight the goons with a wooden log. You can also choose to be a boxer.
Better to Get Used To It
After you get to Service Station, start your engine. It will help you catch up to Service Station faster in the final chase.
Paulie is your enemy. Then, send them to sleep with one full bat swing.
You can also ram the car you want for an alternative ending.
The and the Priest
There is a man in navy uniform at the restaurant, and a man in black on the first floor next to the armchairs. Both of them have guns and will shoot you in the back. Kill them.
One of the rooms is located on the first floor. The NPC (will work the same way as a bat) so you won’t be attacked by security guards if you use it. You can get out without firing a single bullet.
Below is a video showing how to disable police officers on the roof. It is difficult to do and it is doubtful that it is useful.
Take the following route when you are trying to flee from the church. Leave the car at the cross and wait for police to stop following you. You will need to navigate through narrow alleyways.
A trip to the Country
The first time you drive to Salieri’s warehouse, the horns don’t make any sounds. They can still make other cars go out of your way. It’s known to be a bug in this game.
Try to accumulate as much HP as possible before the final chase. The mission is straightforward and there are no tips.
As you try to find Frank’s family members, a man calls 911. If you kill him, the police won’t come.
There is a tower near the hangar with a sniper.
Omerta – Lucas Bertone
Stan isn’t your only option. Thompson should be able to kill Stan twice. You should not shoot him more times than that, or the mission will be canceled.
Visiting Rich People
Salvatore can open many more than safes. Doors and cars are no problem. Silver Fletcher is possible with his help.
You should knock out 4 people. Other people can be avoided.
- Just as you enter the garden a security guard is walking to your right. You can knock him out and take his keys.
- To turn off the lights use the electric panel in (‘s left corner by the hedge. It will be checked by another security officer. Knock him out.
- A gazebo is located near the gate and has a guard. Although knocking him out does not prevent you from entering the house, it makes it more chilling.
- The maid is in the house!
Salvatore can open the safe for ya, but you will still need to obtain the documents. Do not leave them in the safe.
You have two options after you get the documents. You shouldn’t kill the prosecutor. I recommend shooting guards, as it allows you get Sliver Fletcher earlier in the game.
Behind the white Falconer, on the second floor above the top, are grenades. They are very helpful for the ground-floor barricade.
This mission causes barrels to explode.
Morello’s men dropped weapons that will remain on the streets after cutscene. You don’t have to put your life at risk to help one last man to get ammo or weapons.
There is a glass of liquor at the bar. It is possible to drink it. The drunk effect can be quite trippy.
Get a bucket and clean the toilet. The skipper will confiscate your gun if you don’t do this.
You Lucky Bastard
Italian Garden can help you get out faster by keeping your engine running.
The chase to the port can be quite slow. Morello Jr. is easy to overtake, but that can cause the game to crash. Also, you will need reload your game.
Windows error sounds will play as you enter the port. This is normal for all Windows versions. It just happens. I don’t know what causes it, but it’s normal. The sound just plays for some reason.
The train locomotive can carry grenades. They are very helpful in the last gunfight in Morello Jr’s warehouse.
You Lucky Bastard – Lucas Bertone
You will need a car with four seats and a fast one. I recommend stopping at Salieri before heading to Lucas to get either Thor 810, or Silver Fletcher.
Creme De La Creme
If you drive fast enough, Sam or Paulie can kill Morello. It’s not easy to do it constantly, but it is possible.
By keeping your distance between Morello’s cars and yours, you can get the bridge to its end. Before the next section of the game loads, you must accelerate as you exit the city. After the game loads, you will need to keep going at the same speed until you reach the bridge. It will require a fast car.
Creme De La Creme – Lucas Bertone
Lucas will ask for you to dispose of a wanted vehicle. You can’t lose the wanted status so don’t wait.
You don’t have to drive another car to get the desired car to water. Follow the road that leads to the light house. Stop on it, place the car in neutral, hold onto the hand brake and turn off engine. Now release the handbrake and exit the vehicle simultaneously. The car will now move down the hill independently.
You’ll get a special dialogue if you walk all of the way back to Lucas.
You can find a construction worker at the prison’s entry point. If you kill him or leave him be, a detective will follow you to the exit. He will search for weapons and try to arrest. The detective won’t be present if the worker is killed and his body is thrown into the sewer.
Alternativly, you could keep the worker safe and not be arrested. Keep your weapons hidden before you leave prison. After you leave prison, you should immediately open your inventory and toss all your weapons. The detective will search you, but he won’t find anything so you will be left alone. Next, pick up your weapons and hide them. You can simply press the pickup button and the hide button simultaneously.
The sniper-aiming button is not binding every time you load the game. After you reach the prison tower, it will need to be rebinded in settings.
Election Campaign – Lucas Bertone
Two men are looking at the car you are supposed steal. Talk to them before stealing the car. They will alert the guards.
Just for Relaxation
Brute force won’t work. But it will. You can just kill everyone and then load up the boxes to leave.
Silent approach is carrying lots of boxes. Not just Scorsese boxes. If you want to entice the guard, you must do what he tells and move a bunch of boxes to the dispatch center. But don’t worry, it’s not all your responsibility. Ask the two guys in front of you at the dispatch hall to assist you.
Once you leave the harbor, guards will chase after you. You can lure them into a trap Paulie & Sam have prepared or they can run away with you in the chase. If they do lose you in the chase, Paulie or Sam will give you a special dialogue.
Follow the following route to get out of the bank. Once you arrive at Palermo Club take your car out. This should confuse police. You can then wait for the wanted symbol to disappear.
Art is dying
Beware of grenades
Mafia’s boss fight is the shoot-out against Sam. Crouch down and hide behind a wall. Move slightly to the side, with your elbow sticking out. Sam should begin shooting at you. Once he does, he will hide behind the wall. Keep going until he stops firing. This is the moment you should get out from under the cover and start shooting.
The Death of Art by Lucas Bertone
Thor 812 is protected by dogs. You can kill them (by exploding a car). However, you can still pick up a rare weapon – a dog head.
