When you're able to buy guns, always issue all members with Tommy 
guns. They are cheap and can waste massive groups of people quite 
quickly. Ignore silenced pistols and twin packs. They are absolute 
rubbish and no good in fights.

When you're able to buy cars, buy roadsters or armoured cars. Only if 
you're desperate will you need a sedan. An armoured car with a 
gangster with full muscle with Tommy guns can easily take on 
gangsters with the same kit but in a roadster quite easily one after 
the other and maybe both at the same time.


Set up all your illegal businesses as soon as you claim them. Also 
try and monitor any places that the rival gangs trash, as they will 
always go for these places. Giving you a idea where to defend and 
where to nail as many of their gangsters as you can.

Need a boost in cash? Try stealing cars from rival gangs and selling 
them. Some of them will sometimes drive outside your base, park them 
and go wandering off somewhere. Don't worry about your cars, they 
don't bother stealing your cars and the most they would do is steal 
back their own.

If you want to take over businesses without trashing them order your 
gangster to take the building. But when he/ she says something that 
will mean they trash the place (like wrecking time! Or let's trash 
this place). Instantly tell them to get out of the building and then 
walk back in and claim the place. The shop will be instantly be yours 
and function without problems. As for illegal businesses, kill the 
guy who runs it and then claim the site as yours. 

Robbing banks are a very effective way of gaining cash with 0% APR. 
Remember depending on the time, only certain gangsters can rob banks. 
A safe cracker and bank robber can only rob banks but at different 
times. It's best that you use the bank robber in daylight and safe 
crackers at night. Also once it's robbed, hide in a local area and 
wait for the bank to be fixed and THEN REPEAT the process for 
unlimited cash flow!

When it comes to bribes, get a gangster who can persuade (like TUX) 
but what if someone is already bribing them? Not to worry, get your 
kidnapper and order him to kidnap the person from the building. If 
the person is thrown out of the building and is running for dear 
life, you should be influencing the person now. But be careful when 
it comes to police stations, you could be throwing out THE WHOLE 
STATION FULL OF COPS as well as the police chief and they won't care 
if they are under your influence. They will nail or arrest quite 

In some cases, bribery is not needed, finding dirt on anyone will 
usually bring him or her to your side. Try brothels, casinos and 
Speakeasys for evidence. Never illegal businesses where products are 
made or printing of fake cash or loan sharks. 

When putting a specialist into the illegal business, buy anyone from 
the newspaper, they tend to be more or less the same. But some 
special ones will come along and you should consider hiring them 
regardless if you need them or not. This prevents good manpower going 
to waste and stopping them gaining money.


Tommy guns (when you ever get them) are the weapons of choice. It's 
the fastest drawing weapon, destructive and great in gunfights. All 
gangsters' can use the weapon skill fully. A rifle could be an 
alternative if you are a bit short of Tommy guns. But replace them as 
soon as you can.

When targeting people on foot, try targeting the gangster in the 
middle of the pack and let the team do all the work.

If you are a gangster with assassinate skill you can resolve battles 
easily, despite being on your own. Click on the assassinate button 
and click on the gangster (or his muscle) that you want dead. The 
trick here is that normally you have to clear all the muscle before 
you can get your hands on the gangster itself. With the assassinate 
feature you target the gangster first. Once he's dead, their muscle 
will desert and go back to where they came from.

In drive by situations, you can maximise all the amount of kills 
done. When driving towards a crowd, pause the game and target the 
closest person, now unpause it and watch their colour square 
underneath their feet will vanish as you shoot them. Now pause again. 
This means muscle or gangster is dead so target some one else and 
unpause the game. Repeat process. You can nail far more people this 
way then driving in real time to nail each person.

When you see cops around and they are not under your influence, kill 
them. They will become an annoyance to you when trying to do delicate 
things or doing street fights. But this is not a permanent solution. 
At a change of light, new cops will come along and replace them, but 
I do believe there's a limit to the number of people there.

If you are injured or your muscle looks in need of fixing, go to safe 
houses and your office till recovered. Or if you are no where near a 
safe house, just fire the weak muscle and hire new ones. Just make 
sure that you're close to a different muscle site that when doing 
this, as you'll just buy the same one if you stand near the same one 
you hired them from. Also wait a moment for them to move a fair 
distance or you would hire them again. 

When entering offices with the lead gang leader, get a bomber to 
throw a bomb into their office and clear everyone out and then kill 
the boss that runs out. Its much safer then throwing everyone out as 
you could be killed in the process.

It should be important that you do as many objectives to help other 
gangs join forces with you to save time and money fighting them. Also 
provide a safe haven for you. Also the best gangsters will come to 
you for work. It's important that you hire them quickly as they will 
help you in your mission.

If some missions state that you can make gangsters submit by taking 
most of their land, it's probably to follow this route of action. But 
remember, before the gang leader is about to submit I suggest you 
nick every stray car that you can before you become allies. It would 
be a waste of resources if you don't.

If mini gangs begin to spawn (because the main leader is dead and 
there's gangsters left) its wise to do drive-bys to clear them off as 
they will become a pain once they are free and roaming. Its best you 
target their leader who also comes out for walks. No more then 2 cars 
should cover these little offices that spring up.

Hitmen are not particularly advised unless their success rate is 
around 75 percent and above.

Apart from one level, ignore what your advisor says when it comes to 
being wanted, they police are powerless to stop you and they rarely 
do raids on your place. Even if they did, you could easily kill them 

When hiding in you base, place the aggression really high so they 
will instantly begin shooting anyone who throws them out.

Unless, you're in an armoured car, you must not take on too many 
muscle guarding at 2 or 3 close business sites as you might get 
killed in the process.

If possible try not to kill the muscle that patrol (the ones that 
walks around) certain areas, this muscle can be turned to your side, 
provided that you capture the district that their muscle site came 
from. Otherwise, it's pointless as there would still be plenty of 
reserves of muscle even if you killed everyone outside.

Never let muscle guard sites, you can't arm them and they can easily 
get over run by gangsters with anything better then a shot gun. Its 
better off that you got gangsters with muscle (if possible) to guard 
sites as gangsters are far better skilled then muscle and also gives 
them the opportunity to obtain better weapons to defend the site.


I'll provide what I can when it comes to tips. Anyone with 
information is welcome to tell me.


Right, first up swap your pistols for shotguns. Buy the shop and get 
that muscle. If you have any spare shotguns to buy, give them to the 
person who is going to take the muscle.

You should consider waiting for the Gang leader to leave his car and 
sell off a lot of the muscle before attempting an attack. If 
possible, steal his car so he can't use it against you. Just make 
sure you've got a decent plan of escape or you'll die trying to steal 


Again, buy more shotguns and this time things will be a little harder 
as there are five of them in cars. You have a choice when doing this, 
either hide in a building and pick them off when they get out of 
their car or you single one after the other and send all your 
gangsters to blow away that one car. 


Once you claim that site, defend it. They'll send gangsters to 
reclaim it. Make sure the person guarding it gets a full set of 
muscle and the best weapons. Always keep a close eye on that place 
unless you kill the gang leader and everyone deserts.

Just one thing, if you claim the brewery, make sure that the trucks 
are around because if you claim the site before the trucks comes 
back, you're screwed. As you won't be able to complete the mission.

If you want to take out the enemy gang leader, I suggest you bring 2 
gangsters (making sure one of them is Louisiana) and throw a bomb to 
kill everyone inside the building. Once you see him coming out of the 
building make sure you concentrate all your firepower on him. Just 
aware of the fact that if you fail to kill him when he's running out 
of the safe house, make sure you are able to corner him as he'll 
become extremely frustrating to kill him from then on.


This one should be quite easy. Buy Tux bribe police chief and send 
several gangsters to hide in buildings close to the main bridge that 
that separates the 2 gangs (swap any spare ones in the office when 
those at work become weak). The attacks might not be frequent but 
they still happen and cause trouble.

Set up the illegal business in your area at the start quickly and buy 
that specialist. He's skills are invaluable when money is concerned 
in this level. Make sure he survives at all costs.

I would recommend taking on the blue gang as he's is weaker of the 2 
and also speed up completing the level. Also would be the easiest way 
of setting up cash. Yellow is slightly more vicious and should be 
suggested that you tackle them last and kill the gang leader instead 
of subduing him.

[The Farreli brothers level]

Again, set up send some of your gangsters to sites close to the 
bridgeheads. Yellow won't attack you but never the less, if you start 
on them first they will.

It's recommended that you tackle the blue gang as he is in the middle 
as taking on purple would be harder to take on. 

Pink gang has a lot of cheap cars you can steal. Take all and sell 

Yellow has a tasty armoured car. Provided you see it unoccupied by 
their occupants outside their turf, nick it. Never takes the armoured 
car that is close in their turf, as it's not the easiest time.

Start by taking on blue, then pink and finally yellows. I would 
suggest take the first 2 territories and make them submit and bring 
armoured cars and a bomber to kill the last one. He's resources are 
too large to claim quickly.


This is always been a topic of concern as many people can't do the 
first bit right. First up, buy "hands on" from the newspaper, and 
give him a set of muscle and arm him with as many Tommy guns you can 
afford possibly. Now, hire him some muscle get in the fastest car and 
drive to where the hostage is. Eliminate all guards and claim the 
site. The hostage will be thrown out, so kidnap him quickly. Once 
you've done this, pause the game and set up a hide out or safe house 
there and place him in there. Not only have you got the mayors 
brother safe without travelling back to your office, you've also 
created a sort of beachhead to start claiming Kitsen's turf.

Once you've captured the mayor's brother, be vigilant in your home 
turf, as they won't hesitate to send gangsters to trash your office 
or safe house in your area. Leave a gangster (2 muscle attachments 
should be fine) at each site and send one to do some work now that 
you've got your prised car.

Once you're ready to get kitsen you'll need to bring all but one 
gangster to one side of the path leading to his office and the other 
side with a bomber. Now here is the trick: Bring all your gangsters 
with machine guns to start some suppressing fire and whiles they are 
distracted, get your bomber to lob a bomb into the large crowd to 
finish them all off. Send any one who is injured in the battle to 
flee and hire extra gangsters if you need more covering fire.


There's nothing hard about this level apart from the start. Its best 
you prepare for an onslaught invasion from the enemy gangsters once 
you invade their territory. First up, bribe the police chief in your 
area. Now line the main road with gangsters with full muscle around 
junction points (not on the bridge leading to town as there's too 
many in one pack to handle at a time) be prepared to have another 
gangster near the whorehouse that is close to your office waiting 
there. Get one gangster into a car and drive down to anyone of the 
grocery stores close to one of in the purple gangs place. It's 
advised you take the one on the main road that isn't guarded. By now, 
all hells broken lose and you'll have to fight to protect your land. 
If you survive, take your gangster behind enemy territory to being 
taking each of the unguarded sites using stealth and hiding in other 
shops to dodge the gangsters that keep coming along. Slowly claim as 
many sites possible and taking the illegal business nearby muscle 
sites won't hurt either.

Once you've set up your operations, it's absolutely up to you how you 
complete the level. I find it more productive just to claim each site 
and kill all gang leaders. But if you can't be tossed, just get the 
store near the top.

"Speedy" in the newspaper would be useful in this level and would at 
least be a better gangster then those without special skills.

Armoured cars help a lot in this mission, as this will reduce death 
rates and allow you to take on other cars much more easily. Giving 
one to "speedy" would be wise idea.


At the start of the level, hire a gangster with the assassinate skill 
and drive him close to a site next to the bank. Now be prepared, your 
territory will be over run and you won't have much hope other then to 
fight them off and claim as much land as possible to curb your loss 
of income. They every so often bring cars to attack you, nick them 
and sell them away to have a boost in cash.

To get our target, will require timing and luck. Forget claiming any 
sites on the other side of town. Instead send a single armoured car 
with a fast driver skill and give him lots of muscle and drive and 
park close to where he parks his car. The trick here is to kill him 
when he's going towards the casino or leaving it. This is no simple 


Nasty one this. You could save money by stealing the brown gangs 
armoured cars and using them for your cause. Just remember that you 
only have one shot at this and what you get in the first snatch is 
what you get and they will wage war on you soon after.

There's a gangster in the newspaper that has lots of good skills but 
absolutely rubbish in all areas. Hire him/ her near the end of the 
level as he'll be invaluable asset to the team.

When doing your attack into the island, bring all gangsters with 
armoured cars and muscle to attack one of the entrances. The key 
threat in this area are the roaming armoured cars so gang up on them 
and if none of the cars round the pack can't take pot shots at the 
armoured car, shoot the muscle that comes running down to shoot at 
you. Switch targets when your gangster is able to shoot at the 
armoured car. Don't drive too deep into enemy territory at the start 
or you'll be wiped out quite easily.

If you are able to get to the purple gang leaders office, have no 
regrets to send several armoured cars with full muscle and Tommy guns 
to wipe them clean. There are plenty of potential gangsters who could 
leave the office to take back what you so badly worked for. Restrict 
them to guarding their office. You could throw a bomb into the office 
but the rate that they throw out gangsters to guard the office is far 
too quick to make the task easy.


A nasty and very time consuming level. The main issues here are the 
gangsters that guard each site as well as the muscle there and the 
large pack of assassins/gangsters that attack on the main road 
leading out of your area on the side near the start of the level. 
Bring all gangsters you can spare and all assassins to wait for them 
to come along the main road. 

It is highly suggested that you use assassins as they are very useful 
in claiming sites or you'll take serious beatings trying to relieve 
and take sites without them. The more assassins you can get, the 
faster they claim land before the assassins begin to come along. 

The tip here to clear these sites is to assassinate the gangster and 
then leg it. That will remove the threat of the gangster and his 
Tommy gun welding muscle. Dodge any patrolling muscle is useful 
tactic so that they don't hinder escape. But to do this, you need to 
have good timing. If you need help to escape try hiding in buildings.

Once you reach their office, its important that you leave several 
gangsters with full muscle and armoured cars to clear the entrance of 
their office as that is the source of all trouble lies. If you are 
able to plug up the surge of gangsters from here, the chances are 
your sites would be much safer. Remember to swap people doing this 
job so those on duty can heal. Hire extra gangsters if you have to 
just to stop this surge of people.

[New temperance part1]

There are several things you must do first. Bring all your gangsters 
to that little side entrance close to the factories. There will 
always be people coming down that pathway. Bring assassin and any 
spare gangsters who aren't doing anything. You must always keep watch 
of this area as your gangsters can't react as early as you can and 
also they might run across the street to claim those sites and they 
could be killed by the nasty armoured car. Do not relieve most of 
these gangsters unless you've got resources to claim the road on the 
opposite side. Once that side of the bridge is claimed, leave a car 
to patrol there whiles any other gangsters need to heal or buy a new 
car to join the claiming.

One gangster in a roadster at the start, the cars you have at the 
start are important to transport injured people away from the pathway 
that most of the gangsters will be guarding. Claim one site at a time 
and if possible heal up after each muscle you kill, as those muscle 
with Tommy guns will blow your men to pieces. Its best to give the 
claiming sites job to the spy, as the person can spy on illegal sites 
whiles they claim them it'll bring up dirt that can provide you very 
important info to help you. Oh, and don't claim the speakeasy close 
to the mayors office, there's stuff we need to nick there when you 
discover it. As soon as you are able to afford a armoured car, get 
one continue the claiming (sell the current car if you have to)

The sooner you can get the army to switch sides before you claim the 
other half of new temperance (where Constantine's office is located), 
the easier it'll be to claim their sites.

The FBI will constantly raid this one certain area, claim the site 
but by all means don't set up illegal business there. When Provided 
you've got a lot of land and close to claiming half of the city, you 
could try to send in lots of fast gangsters to do drive bys when 
Constantine goes to meet the gang leader bosses. But it's highly 
risky and the point score will look very ugly when you do it.

[New temperance Part 2]

Finally, if you don't manage to kill him in the city, you'll have to 
kill him here. Buy all the cars and fit the fastest drivers and Joey 
Bane in them. Now head out to his site (anyone who hasn't got a car 
should set off on foot and clear all the gangsters or muscle around), 
Constantine is at the back of the casino with 2 muscle. Drive past 
the gangsters at the front Nail the first muscle to make Constantine 
ignore his armoured car and begin running down. Drive away and leave 
the rest of the cars to nail the other people or converge on 
Constantine (if you want the first gangster could carry on fighting 
till they die but it's not nice). Remember that this guy can take a 
lot of beatings so the more people with Tommy guns shooting at him 
the better. Once he's dead the mission's over.
