Helpful tips -Here-
A checklist -Here-
Weapon info (locations, upgrades, costs) -Here-

CC Road Rage - 10G -Kill 25 mobsters using your car before time runs out-
From the Menu--Professional--Weapons--Road Rage (20 minutes)
--Easy-- Method to use -Chinaware Spawn Trick- Do this trick using a car.

CC Executions - 10G -Perform 10 unique executions before time runs out-
From the Menu--Professional--Methods--Execution Styles (10 minutes)
--Easy-- You have to be close to and hurt the mobster enough for the Execute -RB- option to appear. These Cannot be done on civilians. You get a 'shotgun execution' just by shooting a mobster with a shotgun. Repeat this for all your weapons for a bunch of easy execution kills.
For a list of executions and how to perform them please see -this thread-

CC Collecting Dues - 20G -Extort 20 merchants and/or racket bosses before time runs out-
From the Menu--Takeovers--Businesses--Collecting Dues (20 minutes)
--Medium-- The easiest and fastest way to complete this one is to be a level 50, or close to it, and to not have your weapon drawn unless necessary. Bribing cops help. Run into 20 shops and extort -press Y- the shop keepers and they will gladly do business with you. Also, any time it says 'BACK DOOR UNLOCKED' after you've bought out the business, there's a Racket in the back available for takeover. Extort the Racketeer because its a 2 for 1 deal!

CC Hijack - 20G -Hijack 5 racket trucks before time runs out-
From the Menu--Takeovers--Warehouses--Hijack (20 minutes)
--Easy-- If you are a level 50 or near, you are no doubt an expert at this by now. If you've never hijacked a truck before- press LB and shoot the back of the truck a few times and 2 gangsters will pop out and shoot at you. Kill them and talk to the driver. It helps to kill the driver after you get the keys, so another truck can re-spawn shortly in that same location. Drop the truck off at the nearest drop off point identified as a 'blinking brown truck' on the map. Continue to drive around and park in front of a truck once you find one, and hijack until you've hijacked 5. An easier/lazy method is to bribe cops to the east of your spawn point down Grand St. in front of the 'The Bowery Bank'. A truck usually arrives at this intersection and the cops will help you kill the mobsters. Then drive it back to your spawn points' garage, or any of the truck drop offs on your map. Note: Driving into a truck will make it speed off, thus making it harder to get.

CC Safe Cracker - 10G -Crack 10 safes before time runs out-
From the Menu--Freelance--Bombing--Safe Cracker (20 minutes)
--Medium-- Flag these locations. Note: If you die you'll start at #6 in an Rx Clinic. Crack the safe there.

2. (S) Timpani's Bakery -Easy- (When she asks for a favour Decline)
3. (T) Emilios Butcher Shop -Easy-
4. (C) Boolies Bakery -Fairly Easy- (below Rx, Cop station near for Bribes)
5. (T) DeMantagnas Barbershop -Easy- (near RX)(Dynamite Supplier in alley)

You only need $1,000 more. Note: Sometimes you can unlock this achievement just by having more than $100,000 already in your game save that you loaded before playing this challenge.

CC Hits - No Innocents - 20G -Kill 100 mobsters before time runs out-
From the Menu--Triggerman--Unsanctioned--No Innocents (20 minutes)
--Medium-- As soon as you start go to your map and press RT 5 times to get to the (S) information. Look up 'Italian Hauling Co.' in Little Italy (first warehouse listed). Mark it with the red flag indicator. Go there and kill all the gangsters, giving you between 15-20 kills. Then kill yourself with a molotov cocktail. You'll re-spawn at a nearby hospital, Rinse and Repeat. Do NOT kill cops or run over civilians. Alternatively you can use the -Chinaware Spawn Trick-

CC Takedown - 25G -Takedown a warehouse in less than 5 minutes-
From the Menu--Takeovers--Warehouses--Warehouse Takedown (5 minutes)
--Easy-- Steal a car and go to the nearest (S) warehouse. (Takes 30 seconds). Run up the right set of stairs, go through the door and run across the walkway. 2(S) will come out of the door in front of you, kill them. Once outside there will be 2-3(S), kill them. Go through the red building on the right, kill the 3-5(S) inside and take a right once upstairs. Talk to the warehouse owner, you will buy him out and the achievement will be yours.

CC Tattaglia Hit - 20G -Kill 50 Tattaglias in less than 20 minutes-
From the Menu--Triggerman--Sanctioned--Tattaglia Hit (20 minutes)

From the Menu--Triggerman--Sanctioned--Barzini Hit (20 minutes)
--Easy-- As soon as it starts, go to the map, hit -RT- 3 times, and go down to (B) 'Palermo Warehouse'. Mark it with the red flag indicator.

Fonkey Monkey 01-17-2008 11:50 PM

for the earned money achievement i think as long as you have more than the alloted amount it basically just gives you the achievement.
like i have $6 million, it started me out at $100,000 and i ended with $114,000 so that obviously isnt $75,000 earned.
anyway just an observation.

CC Takedown 25G- Steal a car and go to the nearest Strattchi(blue S) warehouse.It should take you about 30 seconds to get there. Run up the right set of stairs, go through the door and run across the walkway. Two guys will come out the door in front of you, kill them. Once outside there will be 2-3 more guys, kill them, then go through the red building on the right, kill the 3-5 guys inside and take a right once upstairs. Talk to the warehouse owner, you will buy him out and the achievement will be yours. Pretty simple and easy, only took me a minute and 51 seconds, but you'll have 5 minutes so you should get it no problem.

CC SafeCracker 10G- Here's a thread with all of the locations:
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f...85&postcount=1
Just find any 10, then let the clock run out, and the achievement is yours.

CC Collecting Dues 20G- This achievement is pretty easy since all of the merchants agree to the buy out and don't put up a fight. So just go to any rival owned business and talk to the owner. Repeat 20 times. Then just let the time run out. Also, any time it says 'BACK DOOR UNLOCKED" after you've bought out the business, that means there's a racket in the back.Talk to the racketeer, and it counts as well. So you might have to do less than 20 businesses technically.

CC Hijack 20G-If you are a level 50 or near, you are no doubt an expert at this by now. If you've never hijacked a truck before, you press LB, and shoot the back of it a few times. 2 gangsters will pop out and shoot at you. Kill them and talk to the driver. Then look at your map and drive to the nearest drop off point(identified as a blinking brown truck on the map). You have to do 5 in 20 minutes, so it's a pretty easy task. Just keep driving around and park in front of one once you find one. Make sure not to hit the truck or else it will speed off and make it harder to get.

CC Hits-No innocents 20G- As soon as you start, go to your map and press RT 5 times to get to the Stracci information. Look up 'Italian Hauling Co.' in Little Italy, it is the first warehouse listed. Mark it with the red flag indicator. Go to it and take out all of the gangsters. That should give you anywhere between 15-20 kills. If you kill them all, kill yourself with a molotov cocktail. You'll respawn at a nearby hospital, rinse and repeat. It is very important that you don't kill any cops or run any civilians over.You should finish your 100 kills with about 2 or 3 minutes left.

CC Barzini Hit 20G
-As soon as it starts, go to the map, hit RT 3 times, and go down to "Palmero Warehouse". Mark it with the red flag indicator. Go to it and take out all of the people on both sides guarding the warehouse. Since the entire place has Barzini businesses around it, a bunch of Barzini gangsters will come and attack you, which makes this even easier. Once you take out all of them you should have between 10-15 kills, go to the warehouse and kill as many people as you can. Once you die you'll be taken to a hospital about 10 seconds away. Rinse and repeat. This took me about 8 minutes to do so even if you go really slow this is extremely easy.

CC Marksman 20G-Go to the Tattaglia 'Chinaware Warehouse' in Little Italy. Use the exact same method that was used in CC Barzini Hit. Once you get killed you'll respawn at a hospital literally right around the corner. Make sure you only use firearms and not your fists or a car. You'll probably have this done within 5 minutes, so just let it sit there for the remainder of the time.

CC Carnage 30G- Go to the 'Milk Co. Warehouse' in Hell's Kitchen. I finished with about 10 minutes remaining, luckily it ends automatically. ***See 'CC Marksman'***

CC Blackhand 20G-
Very easy achievement. Just go to each business and beat up the 2 people in front of them, and sometimes more people will come around from the back. If your not good at fighting then just go to Tattaglias' places, as they are the easiest to kill. Unlike the prize fights, you can't use hand held weapons. I wouldn't recommend shooting them to lower their health, because if you don't have a weapon out they won't shoot you.

These look really fun, challenge mode is a cool concept for the game, it was pretty expected that they would put a lot more achievements. 835 is unacceptable

Chinaware Spawn Trick
A Tattaglia mobster will infinitely re-spawn in the Tattaglia's Chinaware Warehouse in Little Italy. Here you can be free of innocents and cops and will only have to kill one easy Tattaglia over and over again!

1. You must kill all the Tattaglias in the (4) sets of road blocks surrounding the warehouse. Each road block has (2) Tattaglias for a total of (8) -to add to your kills and to keep them from killing you while you do this trick.

2. You must kill all the Tattaglia in the warehouse entrance, about (8) there could be more though. The entrance is the area with all the boxes and the gas pump. Do not go through any doors.

3. After everyone in the entrance is killed, don't go into the warehouse, instead, back out to the wire fence -where you entered from the street.

4. Walk back into the warehouse entrance area to find a Tattaglia (in the far right corner to the right of some boxes) standing with his back to you, walking towards the door of the Warehouse. You can shoot him in the back with a Revolver or Magnum (one shot kill)

5. If you do not see the Tattaglia, you did not back out enough for him to spawn. Back out a bit further next time.

6. If you did see the Tattaglia, GREAT! Kill him, and back out again to have him re-spawn.

7. Go back in to see that he is in the exact same place again (in the far right corner to the right of some boxes)

8. Make sure you don't back out too fast after you kill him or the kill will not count. Make sure he dies and you see the items he drops. (or look at your Hit Counter)

The Chinaware Spawn trick can be used for the following CC achievements:

CC Road Rage
CC Executions
CC Hits
CC Tattaglia Hit
CC Marksman
CC Demolition (you can use the road blocks for 8 easy kills only 2 more left)
CC Disarm (you can disarm 8 in the road blocks and only need 2 more)
CC Blackhand (if you can't find enough mobsters, plenty are here)
CC Carnage

Some Helpful Tips
 
These are Tips that apply to all or most of the Corleone Challenges.

Mob gangs (ordered from weakest to strongest)

Tattaglia - (T) - Orange - Brooklyn
Stracci - (S) - Blue - New Jersey
Cuneo - (C) - Red - Hell's Kitchen
Barzini - (B) - Green - Midtown

In most of the C Challenges remember to:

Bribe Cops (except for CC Executions, and CC Batter UP -they'll take your kill)
Bribe them before you rob a bank, and sometimes its necessary to bribe some after the heist cause you don't want your bribe timer to go below the badges lined up. Once it does, they will turn on you.
Light blue uniform cops give you the least amount of time. Black uniform cops give you twice as much as the light blue, and the Police Chief will fill up your bribe meter to the max for $1,000.

Use your spawn point after dying to your advantage. Maybe it was the quickest way to get there. Also, mobsters re-spawn, allowing you to kill them again for more kills!

Have full ammo. If you run out there are suppliers and there is a Full Ammo cheat it and the Full Heath cheat can be found --Here--

Use your Campaign. The CChallenges use your data from a campaign load. If you are lacking anything while doing CChallenges, go straight to the source (the actual game load) and fill up on ammo or weapon supplies. Ranking up always helps.

Remember Hot Spots. For most of these challenges you start out in Little Italy right infront of your safe house.
There is a bat and a Rx Bottle upstairs, and a Car in the Garage
North nearby is (T) 'Global Trading Co.' Here you have 13 (T) at your killing disposal. You can die, respawn and kill them again.
Also, this spot has a Lead pipe and Tire iron within.
The (T) Chinaware Warehouse has a (T) that will respawn over and over again.
Your spawn

o0EVIL0o x360a 01-18-2008 11:30 PM

Okay, here's an update on Neighborhood. You only have to take down a compound. Any will do. You can even drive all the way to Brooklyn and take down the Tattalgias if you're having problems up north.

Also, did Monopoly again and I'm number 1 in the world on the leaderboards... sweet!!

EDIT: Heres some more info some of you may find useful. This is a complete walkthrough of heisting all 6 banks within 25 minutes although there are other methods you could use, this is how I did it.

CC Heist: Start off stealing a car and driving to the closest bank which is the uppermost one on the map. Bribe the roving security guard and then find 2 random cops and bribe them as well. Make sure you have some sticks of dynamite, at least 3 is recommended. If you do not, load up your campaign and go shopping, then save your game and when you load the Challenge you'll have your campaign items. Back to the heists... run into the bank and run to the vault and place a dynamite stick there and hide behind the chair on the left side. Never take your weapon out. Once it blows, run in and grab your cash and haul ass to the getaway car that you hopefully parked facing south. Race to the next bank (which is the only other bank in Midtown) with your loot in tow now. Bribe the police officer outside to erase your previous sins (you'll notice the less aggressive you are, the less police stars you get) and then enter the next bank and go downstairs. Beat down (with your fists) the security guard on the right side of the vault security door to unlock it. Repeat the process of grabbing your loot and getting to the car. Next head down into Little Italy and get ready to hit the bank next to your starting safehouse. If you need to, head to the safehouse to drop your loot from the Midtown banks and refill your health. Head over to the bank and repeat your normal process of bribing and robbing. After you get the loot and make your exit, feel free to head back and stash your loot and refill your health because the safehouse is so close. If you need more dynamite, now is the time to grab some. There is a supplier between your safehouse and the bank you just robbed in an alley. Next you'll head to Jersey (which always gives me problems for some reason) Make sure you've got a fast car before attempting this. Race to Jersey and head to the police chief's nightclub and bribe him for 1000 bucks. It's right around the corner from the bank. Do your normal routine of looting and running away. Only kill a guard if he's got the security door locked. If you get shot up, you will need to pause and use the health cheat here. Once you've got the money, drive back to your Little Italy safehouse to stash it and refill your health. Your last stop is in Brooklyn. Drive across the extremely long bridge and take a right at the first possible chance and head to the police chief's badge which is on your map. Bribe him and head around the corner to the bank. Do your normal thing and get back in your car. The last stop is Clemenza's safehouse in the bottom right portion of Brooklyn. Hopefully you've got that unlocked in your campaign. If not, get ready to either buy a safehouse on your map, or if you're doing good on time you can try getting back to Little Italy to your safehouse. If you can go to Clemenza's you should have at least 3-4 minutes left on the clock by the time you finish.

Excellent VGA, I'll add them to list and give you credit. I"m all for killing (T)s and thats really cool that you found a smarter way for CC Monopoly.

For this one though-

You do not have to shoot the gas pump to die, use the Chinaware Spawn trick- back out of that warehouse entrance (past the wire fence) and come back in and 1 tattaglia will have respawned waiting for you to kill him. Kill him and repeat this over and over.
See -this post- for more info

o0EVIL0o x360a 01-19-2008 04:48 AM

CC Heist: Carry at least 3 dynamite sticks and always bribe cops until your meter is full. In some cases when he is close by, you can head to the police chief to instantly fill it. While heisting, NEVER take a weapon out. If you minimize how aggresive you are, you can escape the bank with NO cops chasing you. Lastly, always park a fast getaway car outside the bank facing the direction of the next bank. You're bound to get shot while running around, so keep the health cheat handy. (left,x,right,y,right, L3) You can only enter the cheat once every 7-10 minutes so use it sparingly. Also, you can (and will need to) carry more than one bank's heist money at a time.

First head to the bank closest to where you begin, it's the northern Midtown bank. Boost the bank and jump to your fast car and head south towards the next Midtown bank. After this, take the long drive to Little Italy. This is the "hub" for your heisting exploits. Drop the money at your safehouse and fill up on health if needed. Hit the bank to the east of your safehouse now and if you need dynamite there is a supplier in an alley accross from the bank. Now go take the other bank in Little Italy and bring the stash back to your safehouse if you need health. Next head to New Jersey. You can bribe the police chief around the corner for quicker immunity. Next stop is back to Little Italy where you can restock and dump Jersey's bank money. Now to Brooklyn where there is another police chief near the bank. Take the final bank's money to Clemenza's safehouse in the southeastern portion of the map.

Hey Fonkey, I edited Heist in into shorter form check the second post. Let me know if that'll work

o0EVIL0o x360a 01-19-2008 08:51 PM

CC Monopoly: Recommended level is at least 25 with near maxed Fighting, Health and Shooting. You're taking down the Cuneo (red family), and they're a lot tougher than Tattalgias. Also try to have a lot of money (50K) before you attempt this. Always check your map frequently to make sure you are not leaving any businesses behind. Also, if you start a mob war or the cops get really pissed at you, just let the mobsters kill you so it'll go away. There's no time for finding an FBI agent.

Firstly, take down all the red properties in Little Italy where you spawn. Run in and take over the front. Try not to rough the owners up or the guards will become aggressive. If he says no, 9/10 times you can just try again and he'll cave in this time. If he doesn't, beat him down a little and then take him over, but be prepared to run really fast. Head into the back and find the racket owner and BUY OUT. Then run out of there to the next closest property. This is how you're going to handle ALL businesses.

After Little Italy, go straight for the Cueneo compound in the NW part of Hell's Kitchen. Basically you've got to take down Little Italy... then in Hell's Kitchen take thier compound, warehouse and hub before you hit 25 minutes on the timer. Practice taking compounds and hubs if you cannot accomplish this. Next head west and take the barber shop that has a merchant favor. If you screw up and the barber dies you will fail to take the business and fail the Monopoly run. Check the map to make sure you're not missing a business to the west. Now just work your way east taking all the businesses and rackets as quickly as possible. Start heading south after you hit midtown, always checking your map. Now head south and take the final Cuneo Warehouse in the Industrial Zone of Little Italy. At this point there are only two businesses left and they're in Jersey. Just drive there and take them out to unlock the tricky acheivement.

for the heist what i did was went up to the bank you start out by, then go down the street for dynamite(7 of them), then go back up to the other midtown bank, then take the highway to new jersey, do that bank, take highway to little italy, go to the upper bank first, then lower bank, take highway to brooklyn. bam.

i went to my house every time and dropped off the money, and got 17 minutes. so if you did it all in one go you could easily get 15 or under, and granted it wasnt a perfect run.
if thats better than vga's method i'll put it in proper form(sorry man im not reading all of that lol.)

Yeah, I edited my posts so they have only the guide info in them instead of all that other stuff. I left my post with the detailed Heist walkthrough because I put a lot of time into that. ;)

I guess you could go to Jersey as your third bank, but I didn't have any safehouses purchased yet, so I had to use the starting one. I was only an associate rank 17 when I did mine, so I imagine at level 50 as the Don you could do things a lot differently. I figured since you are already heading south after the second bank, why not just keep going south to Little Italy. Plus I hate trying to get on the damn highway in Hell's Kitchen. lol I think either method will work, so no problems.

EDIT: Since Clueless is going to be using links in the achievement guide, why not just put both methods linked in there after a short description??

Edit: I updated it to refect both methods

This does make more sense, -to swing out to Jersey first then loop over to Little italy. There is a drop off point right before the highway as well 'Chateau Leive'. This would be quickest method for someone who is level 50 or close to use. I'll update CC Heist accourdingly. VGA your detailed explanation isn't going anywhere, I've got it linked, and linked it shall stay. It really comes down to whichever method you prefer/need to do based on ranks but both of your ways are valid and shall be included.

BTW Nice job on the cleanup VGA. Looking good.

o0EVIL0o x360a 01-20-2008 12:40 AM

Yeah, I was thinking and this method will be a bit faster cause you're eliminating a run between Jersey and Little Italy saving you about 2 minutes. Unfortuately my character could only hold 3 dynamite sticks so I had to do it my way. lol If you want I can just edit my post to reflect to stop in Jersey or Fonkey Monkey can make a seperate one.

Fonkey Monkey 01-20-2008 04:33 AM

god damnit fuck the monopoly achievement. i was on the last cuneo hub and i accidentally shoot the owner. fuck what a waste of an hour. i think ill try it with the tattaglias tomorrow.

edit: just did it with the tattaglias. theres alot more running around but its a hell of alot easier, and still finished with a respectable 55 minutes.

Sweet sprayandpreyoverlords. Thanks for confirming this, I take it doing the reels in CChallenges is out of the question right? ;) I'll add this info to the Godfather FAQs.

The lowest level that we KNOW has been able to do them is at a Level 17. He's had some difficulty though. -Not able to hold many items. ie Dynamite. If anyone is a lower level and able to do all the CChallenges please correct me if I'm wrong about this.
Note: I will add this question to the FAQs as well.


Edit: alberto.barros found that you have to be a level 20 to be able to do all the achievements.

Tanks Dead Like Me.

Today I got the level fifty and the achievements works fine for me, but I've tried only teen challegens.

I will move forward a little more and telling you where the minimum level

I tried following the guide for the CC Monopoly (Cuneo), but I never had enough time. I'm probably just slow, but this is what I did to get this achievement:

Take over all businesses/rackets in Little Italy including the warehouse in the Industrial Park - this is key because you don't have to revisit Little Italy again. Then go to Midtown and take over the businesses/rackets followed by Hell's Kitchen. Save the warehouse (in Hell's Kitchen) for last because it is close to the tunnel leading to New Jersey for the last two businesses/rackets. If you have 50 minutes on the clock before visiting the warehouse, then you still have enough time. I finished at 59 minutes this way. With the guide, it took me 70 minutes.

Also, I'd recommend you take over as many businesses/rackets first before heading to the compound/hub/warehouse in Hell's Kitchen because it's a lot faster just running in and extorting the owner without the gang chasing after you.

o0EVIL0o x360a 01-21-2008 04:23 PM

Hm, sorry that didn't work for ya. I made it in 51 minutes with that method, check the leaderboards. The reason I did it like that is because if you are struggling with the warehouses and hubs, you will automatically lose. That's why if you do them early on and you are struggling, you can restart without losing so much (real) time. This way also puts the barber shop merchant favor early, so if he gets killed you don't have to restart at 45 minutes or what not. You could even do Little Italy, then Jersey, then Hell's Kitchen, then Midtown for the fastest possible way to do it (minimum driving) but I like to do the hard stuff first so I know I'll have enough time by minute 20 on the clock.

Fonkey Monkey was able to do the Tattalgias which are way easier to kill, but have lots more businesses. Hell, I bet you could do the Barzinis if you were really that good at this game. lol

quick5057 01-21-2008 04:39 PM

Like I said, I'm probably just slow. I haven't played the game in ages and just wanted to get the achievements out of the way. I was at level 50, so the compound/hub/warehouses weren't really a problem for me. I just took my time. Your guide is much appreciated, so don't take it the wrong way. I just found a better way for myself and wanted to share. :)

Dan_0904 01-21-2008 10:04 PM

Anyone got any hints/tips on disarming guys? I just can't seem to find the "sweet spot" and if I do, the guy goes down in one shot! :mad:

shoot them in the shoulder. or with a shotgun and just kind of spray. sometimes you get lucky.

as for monopoly, i really suggest trying to do with the tattaglias. like i said before i did it in 55 minutes and really the only one WAY out of the way is the one by the trainyard, but still its extremely easy.

o0EVIL0o x360a 01-21-2008 11:27 PM

I like the fact that there is NO Cuneo presence in Brooklyn. That was the main draw for me on that. 70% of them are within about a 5 block radius of Hell's Kitchen and Midtown.

But you do have a point, taking the warehouses, hubs, and compound will be waaaay easier as the Tattaligas basically fall down when they see you coming. But the Cuneo has so fewer businesses, so it's about the same. I could have done my run in about 40 minutes if I hadn't died so many damn times, though. ;) What really sucked is when I was heading to Jersey the first time I had 15 seconds left on the clock when I entered the last business and I got shot on the way up the stairs cause the bartender wouldn't give in to me. Man I was so pissed, ended at 66 minutes. On that run, I skipped Little Italy and went straight for thier compound before I learned that took way too much time to do it that way.

But I really think Tattalgia and Cuneo are the only options for this acheivement. Barzini is just too tough and Stracci are too much trouble because they're spread out. So just pick a method and go for it. Either way will net you the 30 GS. ;)

Quick note for CC Urban Renewal:
Blowing up the Rx buildings (hospitals) counts towards your score. There are two Rx's above Canal St. on Fourth St. in Little Italy. If you have the cops after you or if you have low health, just pop in an Rx, buy some health, plant a bomb and head to the next Rx for a quick 2 bombed buildings.
