Welcome to the Godfather 2. This game has 41 achievements worth a total of 1000 . This game only requires one full play through for the full 1000 . This is only if you don't miss any achievements. The three missable achievements are 750 Sleeping with the Fishes, Executions in Style and Contract Killer. To avoid missing these you will need to kill as many mobsters as possible while completing the story and when killing these mobsters you must try to perform as many executions as possible. To avoid repeating the same executions, you can go to the don's view via the start button menu and then go to executions and see which ones you must do and then try your best to do them. There have been reports that the Accept this as a Gift achievement glitches and does not unlock when you have completed all the favors. If this happens then simply repeat them all, if it still doesn't unlock then start a new game and repeat them again.

Step 1 - Prepare:
To get through this game as fast as possible, you will need to make sure you know where all of the weapons are and how to obtain them. You will also need to know how to to do the neck snap execution, which I will explain later in the guide. Once you have done this, you can go to Step 2 as everything else will be explained in-game during the tutorial.

Step 2 - Start playing:
Now that you have prepared, you can start playing. Once you've started the new game, simply play through the game as you normally would and just finish the story. While doing this you must get the three achievements mentioned above, as they can't be achieved after completing the story. If you find you still have not unlocked the achievement by the time you have eliminated four families, then make sure you do not blow up their compound. This way you can attack them and come back the next day to attack again. This will also work on their businesses, so you can use this to get those two achievements.

You must also make sure that you kill five made men with the correct kill condition. Instead of doing favors, use this guide HERE. However, if you have unfortunately missed them, you will have to start a new game and get them. As you play through the story, you can make the effort to collect the level 2 & 3 weapons as well as crack the safes in every business you take over. A list of the weapons and their locations can be found HERE. This will make Step 3 much easier. Once you have completed all missions and the story move on to Step 3.

Step 3 - Mop up:
Now you should have most of the achievements. For the achievements you have not unlocked, you can go back and get them. Use the guide to get any achievements you have not unlocked yet. After completing all of the above steps you should have your 1000 .

That's it! By now you should have your 1000 . If not, then go back and to the other steps and repeat them or use the guide below. If you have a problem, then you can always check out the forums HERE.

  • Recruit your first soldier.

    Once you get back from Cuba at the beginning of the game, you will need to recruit a made man. There will be two in the opposite room - a medic & a fire expert. I would go with the medic as the fire expert is pretty much useless. To recruit them press to engage in conversation then you will find they have been added to the family tree. For all other soldiers you can do the same method, but you'll have to find them on the streets or guarding your businesses.

    You will get this while playing through the story, after the last mission in New York.

Make sure to be out of the house before it blows up or you'll have to restart.
  • Eliminate 5 made men with the appropriate kill condition.

    To do this you will need to find out the kill condition for five made men. To do this you will have to go around the streets looking for people with a key above there head. Once you have located these people you must speak to them using and then twice during the conversation to accept the favour. You can then use to bring up the map and locate the favour's location, use to get the details of the favour, then head over there and do what the description tells you to do.

    After completing this favour go back to the start menu and press to access the don's menu, select the opposing family and find out how to kill them and where, then head over to the target and kill him in the condition you have been told.

    You will need to control three crime rings for this achievement, the fastest way to get this is to take over the diamond smuggling venues. There are three venues in total - all in Florida. Then take over the drug smuggling venues. There are four in total - two in New York and two in Florida. If you keep all of these venues and keep prostitution then you will unlock this as you take over your last venue.
  • Control five crime rings.

    Drug Crime Ring + Prostitution Ring + Diamond Smuggling. I recomend getting Gun Running (Basso Oil Places 4 in Florida) and Gambling ( Casinos 2 on Cuba and 2 Florida). This is only my recomendation - you may want to get others that will suit your style better.
  • Control all crime rings.

    You will receive this while going for the 'Last Family Standing' as when you are trying to eliminate them you will have to take over all of their venues. There are nine crime rings in total and this will unlock when you take over your ninth crime ring.
  • Control all extortable businesses.

    You will have to take a total of nine businesses that give you 5% more income. Three are in New York, five are in Florida and the last business is in Cuba. A tutorial will be shown in the game, however I will explain how you take over the venue. First, you will need to travel to the venue and locate the entrance, then you will have to locate the owner somewhere inside the venue. Guards will protect the owner, so take out as many as possible out on the way to the owner.

    Once you have located the owner you must make them crack (first red bar) with out pushing them over the second red bar. To do this you can grab them and slam them using to grab and then left on the into a table or wall etc, you can point your gun at them using the you can hit them with fists by just tapping to put away your weapons and then using to beat them senseless or by even smashing up the shop, get creative!

When you go to execute the mobsters, you should make sure you don't have a crew because they will kill them before you can execute them. The execution most people don't know how to do is the neck snap - you must upgrade your character by going to the Don's View, then clicking on your family, then select your character and go to upgrades, once there upgrade neck snap. To use it, you must sneak up behind a mobster and push , then click to crack their neck. If you can't find a weapon or can't do an execution then go HERE.

  • Crack all safes.

    To crack a safe you must have a safecracker in your crew, then you must find a safe inside any of the venues available. Once you have found the safe, you can then press while looking at the safe to command your man to open the safe. After he has cracked it, a bag of cash will come out.
