The first one is Executions In Style because if you don't do it while there are other families you may miss it because there are not going to be any mobsters to kill.

Second One: Accept This As A Gift, there is one favor on New York where you have to burglar a safe in order to receive the gift, problem is that if you already stole that safe you can not complete the favor and won't receive the gift.

the second happened to me :(, can not get the achievement unless I start a new game, which is not gonna happen anytime soon.

Dude all you have to do is cancel the favor then go back to the guy who gave it to you and he will give you a new favor

dude, it doesn't let you cancel, you can just cancel the normal favors, not the ones from the corrupt officers.

The safes stay open until you get a Burglary favor. At that point, the safe that you need to steal from closes again so you can complete the favor. The developers aren't dicks, lol.

No worries mate. Was in the same type of situation last night. I took out the second and third families right off of the bat in Florida, without moving the storyline along. And then I got to the part where you are supposed to "Grow and defend your Empire" . . . . . . and I couldn't. Luckly I only had to save and reload, and I was back on track.

Ok, so maybe someone can help me, because I have that Burglary favor on New York (is the only one), but the safe is open, how can I get that safe to reclose?

also I can not cancel the favor, I can cancel all favors except the ones from the corrupt officers and if I kill the corrupt officer, he reappears as nothing happened. Also I go to other cities and come back and it remains open.

That is the only achievement left, an don't want to re start the game please help

Only just started Florida, but I noticed that when I was upgrading my character, the "Neck Snap" Upgrade says it replaces the garrotte...so if you buy it before you've done a garrotte kill, I'd imagine you're screwed on getting that execution style checked off.

I'm playing it safe for now, but maybe someone else has already learned this the hard way?

Not that I've found the garrotte (though surely someone has posted a tip here somewhere)...

No, if you purchase the Neck Snap upgrade, you can still get the Garrote kill. Simply use the garrote wire, and then do the neck snap, both will unlock. And you get the garrote wire during a storyline mission.

Awesome, thank you. I guess you choke him out until the RS prompt comes up?

I noticed you get both executions at the same time as well. I also noticed in regards to the safes....even after a cracked them...when I get a burglary favor that not only does the safe reset itself...but when I open the safe...I get the money for the favor as well as another bag of case like I had when I first cracked it.

That's correct. :p

That's they way it has always worked for me as well.

Cool_Dude is wrong on both achievements. If you complete the game you can reopen safes and you can get your execution achievement. The safe one is easy, the execution one is a bit trickier unless you do what i did, go to cuba and in the upper left area of the map there should be a business by itself, its a casino. Here there are 2-3 militia men in green uniforms that when you approach them will attack you. here simply do all of your executions needed, once you kill the guards run down the end of the street and turn around and come back, they will be respawned by this time. Rinse and repeat. Note i only needed a few weapon executions, melee weapons and one environment achievement so this will not work if you need the environment execution for throwing someone out a window. Also i would like to note that if you need the bottle execution there is a bar in the casino with bottles simpy get the guards to attack you and go inside and grab a bottle and throw it at one and if you need to grab another bottle.

The casino is Casino Imperial. There's a roadblock outside with three Cuban Rebels in green military uniform, and if you check you Don's View, "Cuban Rebels" fall under the "Mobster" category. I did a test here and I started with 1065 mobster kills. After I killed these three, I had 1068. My execution info was also updated with +3 magnum execution on mobsters (I did all with magnum).

So yes, you can do the 750 kills and some execution styles after you bomb all five families. But ideally, you should still do it before that since you've more choices.

Executions Style are not that hard if you upgrade your guy with neck snap and take out made men you should get

I can confirm the rebels. I had killed all the mobsters but still was able to get my last execution on one of the rebels.
