Introduction:
Welcome to Mafia II, the sequel to Mafia, created by 2K Czech. Get ready to dive into the City of New York during the late 1940's and early 1950's. You will be cracking skulls and evading the police. Shooting up other gang members to blowing up buildings. Get ready to dive into the deep story, that is about to unfold for you.


Breakdown:
The game is fairly simple and the game play mechanics are easy to get a hang of. You want to start on Hard difficulty(as the difficulty achievements stack and gameplay is not too difficult) and have the Playboy Collectible map ready. Remember, if you miss anything in a certain chapter, there is a Chapter Select found in the main menu.

Story on Hard and Playboys:
Start by playing through on Hard and collecting all the playboys as you go along. Hard difficulty is not to difficult. Make sure to look at the achievements, as some achievements are "missable" while playing through that chapter. But if you do miss it, you can reload the chapter and do it. You may also be stuck at times, but just go in a different direction or take your time, and it shouldn't be a problem. If you miss any, just reload the chapter you may have missed it in and find it.

Final Chapter for Wanted Posters:

During the Final Chapter, use this time to collect all 159 Wanted Posters. These can be picked up during any chapter, but it is best to save them for last.

Misc/Clean up:
If you are missing any achievement, refer to the Achievement Guide for help.

Conclusion:
Mafia II definitely has a impressive story and world that will suck you right in. From the city life to the great library of music that you can hear from the time period on the radio. This game is fairly easy to pick up, and can jump in and enjoy very quickly. A truly great sequel to the first Mafia.

Finish Him 50
Finish what you started.

Complete Chapter 15 in the story.
*This will unlock through natural story progression"


Made Man 50
Finish the story on Medium difficulty level.

Refer to "Tough Nut" for more information.

Tough Nut 100
Finish the story on Hard difficulty level.

Complete all 15 Chapters on Hard difficulty. It is fairly easy since you do a lot of driving and a fair amount of shooting. Here are some tips to keep you alive:

  • Stay in cover at all times! A couple bullets may graze you and kill you.
  • Shoot at enemies when they are reloading. If they are in cover, be ready to shoot once they come around the corner to shoot again.
  • If you can, aim at a location you know enemies will run through. (Ex. A door or hallway) Be ready on the trigger.
  • If you keep failing in a spot, try to use a different tactic. (Ex. A different gun or moving to the opposite end of the hall)
  • Never go to shoot or come out of cover when you are getting fired upon. You will kill yourself in the process.
  • Have enough ammo before starting a mission. Don't run out of ammo in the middle of a firefight.
  • Make good use of the cover system. You can slide to pieces of cover if you are in a tight squeeze.


Get Rich or Die Flyin’ 10
Get all wheels of your car into the air for at least 20 meters and then touch the ground again.

A easy way to do this is during Chapter 8, once you have cleared all the thugs at the Old Foundry. You will be told to take a car to sell it for cash. This car is really fast, so open up your map with the and set a way point at your apartment. You will see a long stretch of road, while going down this road go as fast as you can. At the end you will be going into a busier part of the city and the street will drop down a little. This is a big enough drop to make you be in the air for 20+ meters easily.



Pedal to the Metal 10
Travel at 125 mph.

The earliest you can get this achievement is during Chapter 8 when you are taking one of the "Greasers" hot rods to Derek. Take the car to a body shop and upgrade the performance twice. Then go to the big bridge that connects the two pieces of land found in the center. If you travel as fast as you can, you shouldn't have a problem hitting 125.





One Careful Owner 10
Travel a total of 50 miles in one vehicle.

This has to be one single vehicle that you have used. If you put it into your garage, it's okay if you leave it somewhere during a mission. You can go respawn it at a garage. This car tho cannot blow up or run out of gas, or you will have to start all over again.


Proper Scrapper 10
Sell 5 vehicles to Mike Bruski at the scrapyard.

You first meet Mike early on in the story when you go to get him a car. Go steal cars and with in his scrapyard is a Car Crusher. Put 5 different cars in the car crusher and you will get paid for your troubles.

Exporter 10
Sell 5 vehicles to Derek at the dock.

Derek only takes 2 door cars/nice cars. The first time you drop a car off for him is a "Greaser" hot rod during Chapter 8. His docks are found at the bottom of the map. You will pull behind the building and see a ship with a platform. Drive the car onto the platform and exit your car. Get off the platform and it will be raised onto the ship counting as one car.

Cruise Control 10
Keep any vehicle at 30 mph or over for 5 or more minutes.

Your best bet is to use a faster vehicles. You want to ride the entire highway around and staying above 30mph. While on the highway, you don't have to go as fast as you can. Put the speed limiter on with the and try to stay around 50. It will make you stay on the highway longer and you won't run out of road to early. Use the video below for a perfect map of how to do it.

Here is a map of what route to take: Cruise Control Map


Hairdresser 10
Kill 5 enemies in rapid succession with a headshot.

There are two easy places to do this, both are listed below:

Area #1
Right at the beginning of the game when you first take control of your guy, there are five enemies that you can kill. You have to kill all 5 before you can progress into the building. If you mess up, just hit the and retry mission.

Area #2
Another easy place to do this is at the very first chapter. You will go to the second floor and be on a balcony. You will see enemies shooting at you on the ground level. These are 4 headshots, then look to the left. A enemy will bust through the door and hit your buddy. Shoot him in the head and this will net you your 5 headshots. There is no known time of how quickly you must do this, so try to do them as fast as possible. It is okay if you miss, just have to kill all 5 enemies with a headshot in a row.

Knucklehead 10
Kill a total of 30 enemies using melee attacks.

These can be anyone you start a fight with. To start a fight, go up to someone at press to shove them. This will make them mad and go into the fight sequence. Men are generally the only ones that will fight back. Try to stay off the road, maybe in a hidden alley way so that the police don't see it and break it up.

A really easy place to do this is at the back of Derek's docks at the South End of the map. The dock workers respawn, and there are no police to break up the fights. You will get a wanted level tho.

Stuck Up 10
Rob 5 stores in under 5 minutes.

Just as it says to rob 5 stores in 5 minutes. To rob a store, you must go up the clerk near the register and press to shove them. This initiates to robbing, then go to the register and grab all the money. Avoid gun shops as they are armed and won't hesitate to shoot at you right away. Easy places to rob are Clothing Stores and Gas Stations.


The Enforcer 10
Kill 50 enemies.

This will come naturally will playing through the game from shooting other gang members to cops. Anyone that shoots at you counts as a enemy. You should get this about halfway through the story.


Sharp Suiter 10
Buy your first luxury suit.

After you have crawled through the sewers in Chapter 9, you will be told to get new clothing. There is a clothing store that is really close to you once you leave the restaurant. They sell "tailored suits" there for $110. Buy any of them, and this achievement is yours.



Tuned Ride 10
Upgrade one of your cars one level.

A easy way to get this is when Joe takes you to the car shop your first time, he will pay for any changes that are done to the car. You can upgrade your cars tuning at no cost to you. Otherwise, go to a tuning shop and request the basic tuning. It will costs you anywhere from $300-$400.

Dream Handling 10
Upgrade one of your cars to the maximum level.

There are two levels of tuning found in the game, Basic and Advanced. Go to any car shop in the city and purchase both of these. The Advanced upgrade isn't available until Chapter 7. This will costs you about $1000 depending on the car. Your car must also being in perfect condition before you upgrade. If it isn't, repair it at the shop for a charge.


Hard to Kill 10
The police want you dead. Survive for 10 minutes!

You can either do this the hard way, and just keep outrunning the cops. Or the easy way. Find yourself a armored truck, and start shooting. Cops will start showing up, and get inside the armored truck. Get to a 4 star wanted level, and just drive around until 10 minutes have passed because the truck is completely bulletproof. No bullets will hit you, just make sure you are "wanted" and in sight of a police officer at all times.

This is how a armored trunk looks:

Here's a possible way to obtain "Get Rich or Die Flyin':"

Here are directions to the spot:
  1. From where you start in the demo, your house, head to the Body Shop in the lower left area of the demo area.
  2. Facing the Body Shop, head right.
  3. You will eventually come to a dirt covered area as roads.
  4. There will be some boards laying against a building that has been burned out if you continue straight down this road.
  5. Gain speed starting at the Body Shop and jump it a little bit aiming to the right, if done correctly, you will soar over the bridge or roadway and land in-between two houses, which look to be in a poor neighborhood.
TIP: Use the second car in your garage, by default it's sort of a pale blue-ish color. It's called a Smith Thunder-something. Take it to the body shop and upgrade its handling and driving.

SPOILER WARNING

The professional:

To get the stamps without raising the alarm you need to find your way down to the basement of the goverment building and shut off the alarm before you open the safe.

Dream handling.

Steal a convertable and go to a body shop instead of basic tuning upgrade it to sports tuning after basic and the achievment will pop.

(ill add more later when i get bit more time even if u wanna rewrite them a bit.)

Nothing is really missable cause you can select and replay chapters but ill put an * next to the mission ones you can accidentally skip over. No free roam after you beat the game.

Difficulty Achievements stack

*A Real Gentleman 10g
In chapter 2 when you walk to Joe's apartment you'll walk by a cpl with a broken down car. Wait for them to finish fighting then offer to fix the car.

Tuned Ride 10g
Joe will tell you to drive to the auto shop to change your license plate. Like all GTA's first time is free. Upgrade your engine while you're there an he will pay for that as well.

*The Professional 10g
Sneak down to the basement an cut the fuse box to the alarm. Then just avoid the guards for the rest of the mission.

*A Lesson in Manners 10g
At the start of chapter 5 you'll walk outside an see a woman get her car rear-ended. A man gets out an starts to yell at her. Walk on over an put the smack down.

*Wake Up Call 10g
-When you get to the house an the cut scene occurs head out to the white balcony doors. Then head to the laundry room to get some sheets to climb down -

Pedal to the Metal 10g
When you find a Ascot Bailey do both engine upgrades (this nets you Dream Handling 10g). Head to Grand Upper Bridge and gun it. Try to stay in the center an avoid cars. I've managed to get it up to 129mph.

Sharp Suiter 10g
Head to Vangel's clothing store (It's north of Derek's Office at the Harbor) and buy a Tailored Suit. I didn't notice the place till chapter 11 so I'm not sure if it's there from the get go.

Proper Scrapper 10g
Go the the scrap yard an use the car crusher 5 times.

Cruise Control 10g
Drive up to the top of the map (just under Harry's) and head east on the main road that leads to the freeway (the thick yellow line on the map). Just keep the car around 40mph the whole time an it should pop when you're almost at the end of the freeway.

Hard to Kill 10g
Not sure if this is the best way but this is how I did it. Keep killing cops till you get 4 stars an they bring out the automatic weapons. Then kill all but one cop an hop in a car (With only the driver there's no one to shoot at you). Then hop on the freeway an lead him around for 10 mins.

Exporter 10g
Head to the Harbor next to Derek's office is a cargo ship. You have to park cars on the ramp connected to the crane. The catch is they have to buy high end cars.
The three cars I've managed to get to work are:
Ascot Bailey, Shubert Frigate, and Smith Thunder Bolt.
The cars will net you from $1200-$1700 so if your hard up on cash this is great.

I found an unoccupied armoured car parked in front of a building and picked its lock (5 tumblers). I then hit the first police car I saw to get their attention. I continued to hit it until it was disabled and the cops got out and started shooting. Another police car showed up and I did the same to it. I ran over all but one of the cops so he could keep shooting at me. Had a 4 star wanted rating by this time. Since I wasn't taking any damage, I just kept driving around the cop car until the achievement popped. I don't know if it was a glitch, but no other cops showed up until I left the area after getting the achievement.

If it's possible. Try to find the location again. Would be really helpful lol. But if you can't, that's okay too.

Will do. By the way, great job on the guide so far!

-edit-

Ok, I couldn't find a particular location for the armoured car. However, I did find out that if you follow one around for a while, the driver will eventually stop, get out of the vehicle and walk away.

Thank you, and hmmm. That's odd. Can you describe what the car looks like?

Where is this shop exactly ? Oo

Found the shop ! Nevermind

For the easy hard to kill achievement. When you robbed the jewerly , just block the side alley with a car shoot the police and wait behind the dumpster or whatever, very easy method because the police cant jump over the hood of the car

I found one driving around near the south docks. Didn't have to wait for it to stop... just aggressively blocked it with my car.

Indeed, you have to get to the laundry bin undetected and then escape with Leo in his sports car.

BTW, for A Real Gentleman, you can approach the car, walk away towards a gun shop and go back. The car will be gone, but the prompt will still be there and the achievement will still unlock.

Not really faster or anything. Thought I would just point it out for everybody.

Interesting, I just went to a side room, waited till the guys went into the rooms and walked out the front door , stealth killed the guy at the front door, and took one of their cars.
