Mafia can be brutal. Mafia can be difficult, especially for novices. This guide will help you make the game more enjoyable.


Since I was a child, I have been playing this game. This guide contains all the information I have learned about this game, which is not obvious on my first playthrough.

However, it’s not all there is. Please comment on your tips and tricks. I’d be glad to include them in this guide.

Before you play

Watch the tutorial. It will teach some important things

You can customize your controls. Mafia default controls are absurd. Many key binds make absolutely no sense. You can change it to your taste.

Cross and dot is the best method to aim.

General tips for all missions – Tips

Before you leave Salieri’s bar, speak to Frank, Salieri, and Luigi. They might have something to share with you.

Ralph will show you how to steal a car before you can do most missions. You don’t even have to use the car.

It’s often better to drive a different car than the one Ralph has for you.

Side rolls that enable side rolls may make it more difficult to aim for long distances. You might want to consider playing without it.

Tips and tricks for every mission – general driving tips

It’s better not to use the accelerator at high speeds.

Secondary and primary controls in this game do not do the same thing!

  • Primary controls turn the wheels slowly.


  • Secondary controls instantly turn the wheels to maximum speed.

Secondary controls for turning give you more control at high speeds. You have more control with primary controls.

Honking will make other cars move.

Tips and tricks for car chases

You will be chased. You will be chased. Police or other gangsters. To escape successfully, I recommend driving in tight spaces. There are indestructible objects such as fences and poles. It is a great way to lose your followers by driving between them and a wall. These objects are hit by AI when it chases you. This is how the game’s AI works.

Tips and tricks for dealing with police

This game is a tough one for the police. Driving over a trashcan or running a red stop sign are examples of punishable offenses. This game is slow and the police rubber bands cars heavily so it’s often better to pay the fine than drive.

If you’re in a car, it’s okay to ignore the on-foot officers. However, police cars will try to persuade, and it is not easy to get rid of them

You don’t have to notify the police if you run a red light. You can just drive around the pedestrian crossings. Police won’t notice if you hit pedestrians.

You can make in-car policemen on-foot. Once they have convinced you, stop your vehicle and wait for them. You should be careful as they may try to arrest you and pull you from your car. After they approach your car, stop driving for a second. The policemen will turn around and go to their car. However, if you stop driving, they will return. To lure them out of the car, you can do this again. You can drive away if they stop returning to the car. They will not be able to catch you on foot.

The police symbol (fine, handcuffs, or gun) can become transparent/greyed out. This means that police are able to identify who they are looking for, but not directly see you. If you are in a car (, you can either exit it or enter it (. If you are walking), the police will be confused. You can then walk away or drive away without any problems. See the video for a demonstration.

An Offer You Can’t Refuse

Continue straight until you reach a small parking lot. On the right is a small alley that can only be accessed by pedestrians, which leads to Twister cinema. You will need to carefully climb the few steps at the end of that alley. Morello’s gangsters won’t often make the jump. The mission is easy if the car is tuned to its side.

Running Man

As you exit the last passageway, a woman is waiting for a man. You can talk with her.

Molotov Party

You can find a box at Morello’s bar once you get there. Block the back door with it.

You can leave a car and keep the engine running by pressing the exit button. To turn off the engine, press the exit button. Next, press the forward button to turn the engine on again. Press the exit button immediately after. Tommy will then exit the car but the engine will continue to run. You can do this with the Falconer in your garage for a faster escape.

You can either pick Paulie up on your way out or leave him alone. He will arrive at Salieri’s by himself. You can even see him driving his Bolt Ace that you arrived in.


You can take the wheel from the yellow car park in front of Clark’s motel to avoid the final car chase.

You can also shoot the second window from to the right. You should hear a man screaming in pain as you shoot through this window. The mission is over when you kill him.

The Clark’s motel has a Thompson-linked gangster behind a bar. Shoot some bottles behind the bar and then shoot the light at the top of the bar. The gangster will set fire to it.

One of the rooms in the motel can be found with a Thompson.

You can use the toilets to take a sneeze


The famous racing mission. How to beat the race, even if your driving skills are poor

There’s a U-turn at the beginning. Break earlier and cut it on grass. This will give your an advantage over other racers.

The first turn and the turn following the downhill section with chicane should be the only ones you need to brake for. Try to keep your car moving in every other turn. If you need to, let go of the gas but don’t brake.

You can drive over grass if you’re talking about the chicane. It will be no problem for the car.

You can shift manually if you need more speed. Only the finish straight and downhill section with chicane requires you to change to third gear. Every other place, use second. Although the car will scream like mad, the speed gains are enormous.


To fight the goons, you can grab a log made of wood. You can also get a boxer.

It’s better to get used to it

When you get to the Service Station, turn your engine on. This will allow you to catch up to the hoods quicker in the final chase.

You can make enemies of Paulie and then send them to sleep with just one full bat swing.

For an alternative ending, you can ram the car that you are chasing.

The and The Priest

A man in a navy uniform is in the restaurant. The guy in black coat is on the first floor, by the armchairs. Both men have guns and will shoot at you in the back. Kill them.

You can find a knife in one of the rooms on the first floor. You won’t be attacked if you use it to one hit NPC(. You can escape the hotel without firing a single shot.

The video below shows how to disable police from the roof. Because it is so difficult to do, its utility is questionable.

Follow the below route to escape from the church. After crossing the street, get out of your car and wait for the police not to chase you. You will have to pass through a narrow alleyway.

A trip to the Country

On your first drive to Salieri’s warehouse, horns won’t make any noise. They still make other cars move in your direction. It’s a known bug in the game.

Try to get as many HP as you can before the final chase. This mission is straightforward, and I don’t have any tips.


You go to Frank’s house, and a man calls the police. The police won’t arrive if you kill him.

A tower is located next to the hangar and has a sniper on its top.

Omerta – Lucas Bertone

Stan doesn’t have to be fought. Thompson can be used to shoot Stan twice. It will fail the mission if you shoot him more than once.

Visiting Rich People

Salvatore can open safes and more. No problem with doors or cars. Silver Fletcher can be obtained by using him.

You should knock out at most 4 people. You can avoid them.

  • As you enter the garden, a security guard stands to your left. He will be frightened if you don’t get his keys.
  • Use the panel in the left corner (near the hedge) to turn off the lights. Another security guard will check it. Knock him out.
  • The gate has a gazebo with a guard. Knocking him out is not necessary to sneak into the house. However, it makes the escape even more chill.
  • You can find the maid in the house by knocking on her door

Salvatore will unlock the safe for you, but you still need the documents. They must be returned to you immediately.

Once you have the documents, you have two options: you can either escape or kill the security guards. Don’t kill the prosecutor. I recommend shooting the guards because it will allow you to get Sliver Fletchcher early in the game.

Great Deal

On the second floor, from the top, there are grenades. They are very useful for the ground floor barricade.

This mission makes barrels explode.

Bon Appetit

Even after the cutscene, weapons left behind by Morello’s men can be found on the streets. You don’t have to put yourself in danger to keep one last man alive so you can pack up ammo and weapons.

Happy Birthday

A glass of liquor is available at the bar. It’s legal to drink it. It is quite trippy.

Clean up the toilet by getting a bucket. If you don’t, the skipper will take the gun on you.

You Lucky Bastard

Italian Garden will help you escape faster by keeping the engine running.

It is tough to get to the port. Morello Jr. can be quickly overtaken, but it can cause serious problems. You’ll also need to reload the game.

Windows will sound an error sound when you enter the port. This is normal and occurs on all Windows versions. It happens without any explanation. But don’t worry, there is no error window. This sound is just what the game is playing for some reason.

The train locomotive has grenades. They are very useful in the last gunfight at the warehouse where Morello Jr. is hiding.

You Lucky Bastard – Lucas Bertone

You will need a fast car that has four seats. Before you go to Lucas, I recommend stopping by Salieri’s and getting either Thor 810 or Silver Fletcher.

Creme De La Creme

Sam and Paulie can kill Morello in the chase if you drive close enough. Although it’s challenging to do every day, it’s possible and entirely skips the regular endings.

Keep the distance between your car and Morello’s car short to get to the bridge. Before the subsequent section loads, you must drive fast as you exit the city. You should be able to reach the bridge end if you keep up your speed after the game loads. To pull it off, you will need a fast car.

Creme De La Creme – Lucas Bertone

Lucas will ask you for the details to get rid of a wanted car. It is impossible to lose the wanted status, so it’s best to get rid of it as soon as possible.

To push the car you want to water, you don’t need another vehicle. Follow the road to the lighthouse. Stop on it, shift the car into neutral, hold the hand brake, and turn off the engine. Now, release the hand brake and get out of the car. The car will begin moving down the hill by itself.

You will receive a special dialog if you walk to Lucas on foot.

Election Campaign

You will find a construction worker near the entrance to the prison. You can either leave him alone or kill him. A detective will follow you out of jail. He will search your body for weapons and attempt to arrest you. The detective will not be present if you kill the worker or hide his body in the sewer.

You can also keep the worker alive, and you won’t be arrested. Your weapons should be hidden before you leave the prison. Once you have left the prison, open your inventory immediately and get rid of all your weapons. The detective will search your body but will not find anything, so he will let you go. You will then need to pick up your guns, but hide them as soon you get them. Simply press the pickup and hide buttons simultaneously.

The sniper aim button does not work when you load the game. Once you reach the prison tower, you must rebind it using settings.

Election Campaign – Lucas Bertone

Two men are admiring the car that you are trying to steal. To chase them away, talk to them before you steal their car. They’ll alert the guards if they don’t speak to you.

Only for Relaxation

Brute force won’t work. It will, however. You can kill everyone, pack up the boxes, and then leave.

Silent means that you have to carry a lot of boxes. Not just the Scorsese ones. You can lure the guard out by moving many boxes to the dispatch hall. You don’t have to do it alone, but don’t be discouraged. Ask the two men in front of the dispatch hall for help.

Guards will chase you once you leave the harbor. You have two options: lure them to a trap Paulie or Sam has prepared, or lose them in the chase. If they are lost in the chase, you will have a special conversation with Sam and Paulie.


Follow the below route to escape the bank. Once you reach Palermo Club, exit the car. This should confuse the police. Wait until the wanted symbol disappears.

The End of Art

Beware of grenades

Mafia’s boss fight is the shoot-out against Sam. Crouch down and hide behind the wall. Move slightly away from the wall, your elbow should be visible. Sam should shoot at you. Then, cover yourself again behind the wall. Continue this process until he reloads. This is when you get out of the cover and begin shooting him.

The Death of Art – Lucas Bertone

Thor 812 is guarded and protected by dogs. You can only kill them by an explosion (. To cause explosion, you must also explode a car). Then you will be able to pick up a rare weapon: a dog head.
