Welcome to the Mafia II Road Map! The achievements in the game are fairly straightforward. To obtain the full 1000, you'll need to beat the game on the hardest difficulty, collect two sets of collectibles, and do some miscellaneous tasks throughout the game. Overall, it's fairly easy to do, but some points during the game can get quite difficult on the hardest difficulty.

Some people have reported that the Tough Nut achievement doesn't unlock after they beat the game on hard. The solution to this is fairly simple; just replay and beat any chapter on hard after you beat the game. Some people reported it unlocking after you go to bed, and for some it unlocks as the chapter starts, but either way, replaying a chapter on hard will fix the problem.

Step 1: Preparation
There are a few things you will need to prepare for if you're going to get the full 1000 in Mafia II in one playthrough. First, make sure you have the Playboy guide available as you progress through the game to ensure you get the Ladies' Man achievement. Also, as you progress through the game, remember to use the same vehicle whenever possible (for One Careful Owner) and to get in each new car you see (for Petrol Head). With those thoughts in mind, it is ready to start the game.

Step 2: The Game
Start the game on hard and play through. Most of the achievements in the game are fairly straightforward, but there are a few that aren't required and can be passed up. For these, I've prepared a short guide below. Use this with the achievement guide below and you should be set to get 1000 in one playthrough.

  • Chapter One: Attempt to get Hairdresser using the guide below.
  • Chapter Two: Get A Proper Gentleman using the guide below; Proper Scrapper is first available.
  • Chapter Three: Get The Professional and Mail Man using the guide below.
  • Chapter Five: Get A Lesson in Manners using the guide below.
  • Chapter Eight: When you get the hot rod, upgrade the car twice and get Get Rich or Die Flyin', Pedal to the Metal, Tuned Ride, and Dream Handling using the guide below. Also, Exporter is first available.
  • Chapter Eleven: Get Wake Up Call and End of the Rainbow using the guide below.
  • Chapter Fifteen: This is the first point where all the Wanted posters are up, so get Card Sharp here.
  • Achievements to get any time: Cruise Control, Knucklehead, Stuck Up, Hard to Kill

Step 3: Wrap Up
If you followed the road map and guide perfectly, you should have 1000 as you complete the game. If not, load up chapters as needed and finish whatever achievements you have left to do.

Step 4: Jimmy's Vendetta
Your first step is to complete the story. All of the missions are timed and you will obtain a score at the end of each mission that can be added to a leader board to compare with others. While you play through the story, you should be aware of some of the miscellaneous achievements as some are easier earned during story missions. You cannot miss any achievements, so if you are aiming for any during missions and fail to obtain them, you can try again at any time in free roam. After you have completed the story of Jimmy's Vendetta, you can now concentrate on unlocking Massacre, Millionaire and Firebug. . For massacre and Millionaire and any others you may have missed, you can reload already completed missions to attempt these on. For Firebug, this can be earned at your leisure, just by destroying any car, you can add progress to this. Explorer, however, is a huge grind to obtain. You will likely have driven around 150 miles during the campaign, so to unlock this you will have to drive around the map during free roam for a copious amount of time. You also cannot drive into a wall and put an elastic band over your thumbstick, or use any other method of grinding.

Step 5: Joe's Adventures
First you should complete the story of this DLC. You will earn at least 5 achievements just for doing this, as they are the story related achievements that cannot be missed. These may include the aforementioned Arctic Grave and Jack of all Trades. These can only be earned during missions. After completing the story, you may have some achievements left over, that are perhaps easier to obtain in free roam. These will likely include, Hypersonic, Jacked Jumper and Driftin' Daddy-O. These are all obtained by performing certain stunts in a vehicle. Hypersoni' can be obtained during a certain mission, where you will find the fastest car in the game, so consult the guide for further information on this. The other 2 achievements will be better done during free roam were you will not be disturbed by enemies.

Congratulations, you now have 1500 in Mafia II! So a relatively easy set of achievements, that are earned through a very fun and entertaining game. You should not have any problems unlocking these achievements as they are all straight forward. If you do have any problems, you will find a clear answer within the guide below.

Tough Nut100
Finish the story on Hard difficulty level.     (36) 

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.   (10) 

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 Metal10
Travel at 125 mph.   (24) 

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 Owner10
Travel a total of 50 miles in one vehicle.   (16) 

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 though cannot blow up or run out of gas, or you will have to start all over again.

Proper Scrapper10
Sell 5 vehicles to Mike Bruski at the scrapyard.   (15) 

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.

Sell 5 vehicles to Derek at the dock.   (17) 

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 Control10
Keep any vehicle at 30 mph or over for 5 or more minutes.   (11) 

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

Kill 5 enemies in rapid succession with a headshot.   (18) 

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.

Kill a total of 30 enemies using melee attacks.   (4) 

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 though.

Stuck Up10
Rob 5 stores in under 5 minutes.   (10) 

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 Enforcer10
Kill 50 enemies.   (2) 

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 Suiter10
Buy your first luxury suit.   (7) 

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 Ride10
Upgrade one of your cars one level.   (1) 

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 Handling10
Upgrade one of your cars to the maximum level.   (4) 

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 Kill10
The police want you dead. Survive for 10 minutes!   (37) 

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:

DLC: Jimmy's Vendetta
Price: $9.99 USD Achievements: 10 Points: 250
First Step10
Complete your first mission in "Jimmy's Vendetta."    (2) 

When you start the DLC you will be in a prison, all you need to do is complete the first mission in front of you. You will be required to fist fight 3 guards whilst running through the prison. Real simple.

Faster than Light10
Achieve a 10x point multiplier in "Jimmy's Vendetta."   (5) 

On the first mission you do after the prison, you will be required to go down to the docks and destroy 4 cars. The easiest way to get this achievement would be to walk into a busy road and destroy 10 cars in a chain. You have a little bit of time between each car. Kill any cops that try to stop you. Keep an eye on the counter in the top right hand corner which will tell you how much multiplier you have.

Drive a total of 1,000 miles in vehicles in "Jimmy's Vendetta."   (76) 

You will likely have only driven around 150 miles by the time you finish the story. So this is likely to be a big grind. The best thing to do is head to the freeway (yellow road on map) and keep driving from one head to the other. You can get a good speed so will cover miles quicker. If you start running out of gas, just steal another car and carry on. Expect this to take around 10 hours.

There actually is a method of driving your vehicle through a clothing store. The car will break the display window and you will free fall through the bottom of the map. You can average about 30 miles every hour. Make sure to save your game often by changing the Subtitles in the Pause Menu. Also, it's important to note that you should save and quit the glitch when you have around 995 miles, and get the last few miles be legitimate means

Armament King10
Kill your enemies in "Jimmy's Vendetta" with every weapon available in the game.   (13) 

When you get to the mission where you have to beat the Irish guys up in an alley, you beat one up then have to kill the rest. It's a good time to get your weapon kills here since you don't have to walk far from the mission start. You may need to wait til you have more money, so here's what to do before the mission:

Go to any gun shop (pistol on the map) and buy MAGNUM, 1911 SEMI, .38 REVOLVER, SHOTGUN and a M1 GARAND.

Then go to Harry's (a machine gun on the map, top left) and buy THOMSON 1928, MP40, GREASE GUN, .38 SMG, C96 PISTOL, KAR98 RIFLE, GRENADES.

Finally go to Guiesspe's (lock pick symbol in middle of map) and buy 1911 SPECIAL, MOLOTOVS.

Make sure you get as much ammo as you can to ensure you get at least 1 kill with each weapon. The final weapon is the THOMSON M1A1, which can be taken off a dead cop when they are at 4 stars. Save your game before and try and get one off a cop. As soon as you do, save the game and headback to the mission marker. It should also be noted that you may get the M1A1 off a gangster at a later date.

Now just do the mission, beat up the first guy then go through each of the weapons killing at least one guy with one of the weapons.

Destroy 100 vehicles in "Jimmy’s Vendetta."   (6) 

When you are outside your safehouse, just run out into the street and start destroying cars. Your shotgun works well and you should aim for the fuel tank which is above the back wheel on the right side of the car (if your looking at the hood). If you die from the police, it's fine, you will respawn outside the safehouse, with all your weapons and car kills. You can check how many you have killed using the stats menu (press start and go to stats).

Kill 100 enemies by headshots in "Jimmy's Vendetta."   (3) 

Use your pistol or a rifle for this achievement. You can either go down to the docks and kill the dockworkers and they will respawn. This way you wont get botherd by the police. Or Just go in the street and start head shotting people. People in cars work well since you can only see their head. Also, headshot any police you see when they start bothering you.

Finish all Car Dealer missions in "Jimmy's Vendetta."    (2) 

For this you need to steal the cars that you are told to in the car stealing missions. You will get this toward the end of the DLC, you can't rush it as they only unlock as you complete certain storyline missions.

Finish "Jimmy's Vendetta" on any difficulty level.    (3) 

This can be done on any difficulty although it's recommended you go through on hard to ensure you get 'Millionaire' achievement. There are around 30 missions.

Earn 1,000,000 points in "Jimmy's Vendetta."   (25) 

You will need to get 1,000,000 points to unlock this achievement. Most of your points will come from story missions. In order to get the most points it's reccomended you play on hard as you get 100% more points than you would on easy.

If you fall short of the 1 million mark, replay some missions and try to better your score. A good tip is to shoot any cars you can whilst doing the mission before running to the safezone. This will get your multiplier up. Also, try to get headshots and string kills together whilst completing the mission in a good time.

For tips refer to this thread on the forums.

NOTE: If you are replaying missions, only the difference will be added e.g. your old score was 10,000, your new score is 12,000 you will get 2,000 added to your score.

Kill 1,000 enemies in "Jimmy's Vendetta."   (10) 

When you finish the story you will probably be around 600. So your best bet is to keep replaying 'The Don' mission. If you die, don't worry your kills still count.

Civillians DO NOT count for this achievement.

DLC: Joe's Adventures
Price: $9.99 USD Achievements: 10 Points: 250
What Witness?10
Finish the Witness level in "Joe's Adventures."    (1) 

You have to kill the chief witness which is hiding in a safehouse for the first mission. When you get there kill the cops and pick the lock of the house, a cutscene will start and you will end up chasing him in a car with poor handling. When chasing the witness, try to get your car right in front of his to stop him and make sure his front bumper touches your vehicle. Now just get out and shoot him. Get back to Luca, watch the cutscene and the achievement will unlock.

See "Arctic Grave" to save yourself a replay.

Arctic Grave20
Push the chief witness into the ice lake in "Joe's Adventures."   (13) 

This is done during the first mission. Same method as "What Witness?" but you must stop his car when chasing him on the ice lake. When it’s done, drag him out of his car by pressing  next to the driver door and keep pushing him toward an open spot of water by pressing , he will not try to fight back or escape. As soon as you push him into the water the achievement will unlock.
If you are struggling to get in front of your target's vehicle, you can also force his car into the water from behind or the side instead of pulling him out of the car. Be careful as it also possible to miss or skid into the water yourself.

If you fail just reload the checkpoint and try again.

Dockyard Discord20
Finish the Connection level in "Joe's Adventures."    (3) 

Kill all enemies outside the warehouse, go inside and kill everything that’s hostile. Start the train and protect it by killing all enemies coming at you. When everybody is dead a cutscene will start and the achievement will unlock after. 

Five Finger Discount30
Finish the Supermarket level in "Joe's Adventures."    

At the start of the mission, kill all security personnel, get to the manager's office on the second floor and watch the small cutscene. Afterward, many cops will start to come from the main entrance downstairs, take them out until the supermarket is filled with smoke. Follow your partner downstairs, kill more cops until you can reach the escape car and drive to the safe zone. Watch the cutscene and the achievement will unlock after.

Mind the Goods40
Finish the Cathouse level in "Joe's Adventures."    

A gun fight will start right after a cutscene at the beginning of the mission. Just make your way out of the building and kill anything hostile that stands in your way. When you reach the main entrance a short cutscene will play and the achievement will unlock after.

Same Shirt Different Day50
Finish Joe's Adventures on any difficulty.    

This is it, the last mission, which is right after the Cathouse level. You chase Rocco in the same building under construction than in the main game with Vito. Don’t rush and take your time going up and kill any enemies you come across. On the last floor, the enemies will be harder to kill and some will rush at you so be prepared. When you reach Rocco a short cutscene will start and the achievement will unlock after.

Reach 2000 points for one velocity run in "Joe's Adventures."   (15) 

This is best done after the mission "Supermarket". Two missions will appear, complete the one called "Bet on That". At some point during this mission, you will have to kill some thugs next to a car, a Delizia Grandeamerica, grab the car when you’ve taken out everybody. Go to the safe zone first then take the car to a body shop, upgrade it to level 3, go to your house, store it in your garage and save. Next, start the second mission called "Going Out of Business" and drive to the highway at one end of the big bridge. Drive on the highway at max speed and honk the cars so they get out of your way. You should get to 2000 points in the first turn, so slow down for the points to register and the achievement will unlock. If you have to slow down in the turn because you’re not at 2000 yet, make sure you don’t go under 80 mph or you will have to start again.

Currently there is a glitch that will allow you jump and fall through a bottomless floor, unlocking this achievement and "Jacked Jumper" in the process. Video and map location included below.



Jacked Jumper20
Reach 200 points for one Jump in "Joe's Adventures."   (27) 

This is best done after the mission "Bet on That" because you get the Delizia Grandeamerica, which is the best car when fully upgraded. There are several places where it is possible to jump on a big ramp. One of them is located near the cars you have to destroy in the second mission, "Going Out of Business", in the industrial zone of Millville north. Approach the ramp from the north at approximately 100 mph, release right trigger when you hit the ramp, you should get more than 200 points when landing and the achievement will unlock when it registers. It may take several tries because it happens very often that the score action turns from jump to velocity or drift upon landing so no achievement. You may need to break slightly before the ramp to break your velocity score, and you may need to be closer to 120mph than 100mph when you hit the ramp.

See "Hypersonic" for a video with an alternative process to complete this achievement.

Driftin' Daddy-O20
Reach 200 points for one Drift in "Joe's Adventures."   (6) 

This must be done during a mission. Start near the diner in the top left corner of the map. On the left side of the large road that goes south from the diner, is a large grassy area filled with some trees. Drive there with a good car you have fully upgraded. Start driving on the grass at around 30mph and tilt your left stick side to side at an average speed. It may require some practice. As soon you hit 200 points, just stop without hitting anything and wait for the score action to register and the achievement will unlock. Any large area filled with grass, sand or dirt should be fine for this achievement.

This may also be done in the rail-yard as shown in the video.
