Recruit a full family tree.


This one will come while progressing through the game normally. After you come back from Cuba (after you kill Henry Mitchell) you will have to speak with Tom. He will tell you to promote someone to underboss. After you do that promote someone on the bottom tier to Capo. This will free a slot so you can add someone to your crew. Once you add someone to your crew to fill in the last slot the achievement will pop.






http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/864/UPpE85M=.jpgSecond In Command 15http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Promote one of your made men to Underboss.


After you come back from Cuba Tom will tell you to promote a capo to underboss. Highlight whomever you want to promote and press the http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/rt.png. As soon as you promote him the achievement will pop.




http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/864/-GS6ag==.jpgExecutions In Style 75 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Complete all execution styles.

You will need to preform all the execution styles. All weapons have 2 (standing and kneeling). A List will be coming shorty! To preform an execution you'll see a http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/rs.png http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/Rs.png (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/Rs.png) icon. Just click the http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/rs.png in and you'll preform the execution. A list of executions can be found on post number 9 (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showpost.php?p=1858846&postcount=9)





http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/864/UPwn6Uw=.jpg750 Sleeping With The Fishes 30http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Kill 750 mobsters.


This one can be missed on your 1st play through. What I did was when I went to take over shops/rackets I always went alone. I NEVER had a crew member with me. I got this one while I was in Cuba when Roth said for me to go to Cuba.


You can also check to see how many mobsters you have killed. Start out by pressing http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/start.png. This will bring you to the Don's view. From here press http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/x.png. Now press http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/a.png to enter your families tree. Once in your family tree highlight yourself on the tree. Now press http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/misc/a.png. You'll be in the upgrade screen, but don't worry your in the correct area. Press http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/rb.png twice. This will bring you to the Rap sheet tab. This is where you can check to see how many mobsters you have killed throughout the course of the game.




http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/864/++dYJg==.jpgFive Crime Rings 50http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Control five crime rings.


Very simple and straight forward. You'll need to control 5 different crime rings. To control a crime ring you'll need to take over all the shops which consist of that crime ring. The number will vary depending on the ring. You'll need to extort the owner of that shop/racket. To do this there are a few weaknesses shop/racket owners have:

1) property damage
2) puches and jabs
3) slams and leans.

It will be much easier and faster to extort them if you find their weakness. In addition to that, you'll also get a bonus. Once the meter get into the green then you and stop and press http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/y.png. Just make sure you don't:

1) Kill him/her
2) push him/her past the breaking point. If you do that you cant extort the shop/racket and they will fight back. At that point, just kill them and the shop/racket will close. It will take about 10-20 min for the shop/racket to re-open



http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/864/UPkvwmY=.jpgBank Job 5http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Heist your first bank.

This one is easy! When you go into the bank and go into the bank tellers area a alarm will sound. Just kill all the guards. Make sure you have a safe cracker on your crew. My safe cracker also had a secondary ability (blowing stuff up) which came really handy cause you can blow your way out of the banks safe and into the street. To make this even easier when you are in your getaway car trying to make it back to your safehouse use your favor "Call off Police". This will make it a breeze to get back to your safehouse.

OR

Wait until you take over all the chop shops so you can have excess to the armored car. Making it even easier for you to take on a swarm of cops



http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/864/+MBMKA==.jpgLockpicker 5http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Crack five safes.


This one will come easy. Especially if your doing favors for the civs (civilians). You'll get a lot of burglary favors which will require you to crack open a safe. You'll need a crew member with the cracking ability. To crack a safe make sure you have a member of your crew who has this ability with you. Put your cross hairs on the safe. Then press http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/b.png. He will go through his normal routine of cracking the safe. Once the safe opens it will count toward this achievement.




http://tiles.xbox.com/tiles/Le/LD/1YCLiGJhbC8wFQQaXFJRFzY2L2FjaC8wL0QAAAAA5+fn+uziNg ==.jpgThe Counselor 25http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Accept Tom Hagen as your Consigliere.

This one will come during story play and can't be missed. When you go to Florida after a certain point Michael will ask you to come back to New York. When you go back to NY and you speak him he will tell you that Tom is your Consigliere (Italian for counselor). Once you speak to Tom the achievement will pop.




http://tiles.xbox.com/tiles/5b/nY/1oCLiGJhbC9FCBsFG1lTWTY2L2FjaC8wLzIxAAAAAOfn5-n3ufk=.jpg500 Empty Suits 25http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Kill 500 mobsters.


Please see "750 Sleeping With The Fishes"





http://tiles.xbox.com/tiles/Oq/O7/0ICLiGJhbC9ACBsFG1lTWTY2L2FjaC8wLzI0AAAAAOfn5-+UoyY=.jpgFortified Venue 5http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Max out all guards at a venue.

When you take over a shop you'll see to hire some guards to keep it safe. When choosing how many guards you want at a shop choose the highest number you can go to. As soon as you confirm your choice the achievement will pop. After you can change it back to a lower number.






http://tiles.xbox.com/tiles/iA/gY/0YCLiGJhbC9BFQQaXFJRFzY2L2FjaC8wLzUAAAAA5+fn-jcIkw==.jpgThree Crime Rings 40http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Control three crime rings.



Please see "Five Crime Rings"





http://tiles.xbox.com/tiles/G-/D4/0ICLiGJhbC9AFQQaXFJRFzY2L2FjaC8wLzQAAAAA5+fn-9fwAA==.jpgContract Killer 15http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Eliminate 5 made men with the appropriate kill condition.



You will see civs (civilians) will icons on over their heads. This indicates they need a favor. You'll need to talk to someone who has a **key icon. That means if you complete their favor they will reward you with info on how to kill members of other gangs soldiers/capo's/underbosses. You'll need to kill the "made man" with the killing condition for that person. If you fail the "made man" will just recover after like 5 min. To eliminate him permanently you will have to kill him using the killing condition. So this achievement can not be missed


** Key icon to look for

You will need to kill 25 gang members using only your fists (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/misc/lt.png or http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/misc/rt.png). Once you kill the 25th person the achievement will pop. It is best to do this in the very beginning of the game. Later on the gangs and gang members get tougher and will cause you more damage.

Kill Henry Mitchell.


This is story related so it can not be missed. After you try to assassinate Castro you'll be asked to go back to NY. You'll have to do some things for Tom and Michael. After talking to Tom you'll be asked to make Henry Mitchell sleep with the fishes (kill him). You'll need to fly back to Cuba and once there you'll see a green X on the map. X marks the spot. Just make sure you have 3 members of your crew with you to make it easier. Also make sure one of those members are a medic, just in case. I used my underboss and 2 capos. At this point I had like $500,000. If you can afford it, up grade them to the fullest extent, if you haven't done so already. And buy them the best of the weapons available to you at the time your trying this. This will come in handy. You'll have to fight your way to Henry Mitchell. Once he is dead the achievement will pop.

Typing everything out doesn't really help anybody since the information is all available in the pause menu. I was just skimming through since all I need to do now is a Table Slam execution, but can't figure out how. All my other achievements I have left are story related =(

1) I am glad you got most of your achievements vie story line. Some people however dont.

2) i understand that my lists and whatnot van be found via pressing pause. But dont you think it would be easier for everyone to have a posted list this way they dont have to pause every now and then or frequently?


3) Making a guide that is idiot proof and that saves people time from pausing and trying to find out where they need to go to find the info they need. This will save people time! And if I am not mistaken, isnt the whole point of making a achievement guide is to help everyone out by making it easier/faster for them to access the information they need to get achievements? If it isnt, then I am missing something here.


4) I am glad you dont feel the need to use my guide and basicly "diss" my guide but dont you think it would be more respectfull and curtious not to post saying my guide is basicly useless? I dont see you attempting/creating an achievement guide.

Sorry but if you're going to spell everything out you might as well explain exactly how to do stuff (ie. executions), but its a simple game anyway that doesn't really require an achievement guide to do and the pause menu makes it really easy to figure out what you still need to do. The only things you would even need to use a guide for this game, in my opinion, is the gun collecting and executions (mostly straight forward then too).

Plus we already have an achievement guide and a roadmap for this game. Why not add your ideas, examples and other information into those guides rather than create yet another? Making things simple and saving time is all well and good, but having all information in one thread would save even more time, no?

The have the power to combine everything. And let me ask you guys something, why are you guys so pissy about another guide. It just means more info and stratigies. Man you guys are ungreatful!

My 'idea' is not at the disgression of mods. I think you misunderstand what I meant. Most people who create a guide are more than happy to add information to their guides from other contributors. They can do this using the 'edit post' function, which therefore means there is absolutely no need for mod involvement.

Doing so would undoubtably make the forums much easier to use. (This is the same in theory as people using stickies instead of clogging up the forums with a number of similar threads.)

I am not 'pissy' about another guide and I am most certainly not ungrateful (people who put a lot of time and effort into decent guides deserve all the credit they get), I just dont see the need for one here. Especially as the first is more than adequate. You may also find people less inclined to comment on the quality/need/use of a thread if you don't include egotistical statements in it's title.

Dont you think it would be more respectfull, If you didnt state ur guide was much better than the Others without even asking peoples opinions on who's guide is better in the first place?
