    B. Mailing FAQ
    Ok. So let's see. This Mailing FAQ is introduced as of the 7th of April. In the
    last days I have answered at least 100 e-mails, many of them redundant.
    So let's get things straight:
    1. Don't mail me telling me you can't get out of the car! This is due to the
    fact that you are using a CRACKED version. This is illegal in every country and
    you could be sentenced to prison for intellectual piracy. So, don't ask me how
    to get out of the car. The answer is right here: go to the nearest reseller and
    buy the game!
    2. Don't ask me anything about control issues for any other gaming platform than
    the PC. I do not own any console, never have, never will.
    3. Film reels and safehouse locations can be found in other guides like the one
    here: http://www.supercheats.com/pc/walkthroughs/thegodfather-walkthrough02.txt
    2. Mission Walkthrough
    There are spoilers in this walkthrough, so if you don't want any of the
    plot ruined for you, be warned because the content within this guide will give
    away story elements and will present the facts causing the action in
    every mission.
    I will NOT list the first one, "The Alley", as it is only a training mission,
    hence you can do it by yourself. Otherwise, you don't deserve to play this game.
    Remember to save often as you can easily die.
    If you can't handle it, download
    the trainer from
    Always look for men with pupeteer signs above their heads.
    			A. Main Story
    2.1. The Enforcer
    Answer the phone downstairs in your safehouse.
    Get out and initiate the mission by talking to Luca Brasi.
    Don't get attached to him! Walk with him and listen to the story.
    You will have to teach a lesson to a butcher not willing to pay his
    protection money any longer.Enter Emilio's shop and press SPACE to
    extort him. Hm! Apparently he is not willing to give you anything.
    Well then, there goes the negociation out the window.	Ruin his cash
    register and cases and he will most certainly crack. Hit him once or
    twice, but be careful that his meter does not go red. Get your money
    and go after him through the newly opened door. Go upstairs, talk to
    the head guy (always the one with the pupeteer sign above his head and
    take over your first racket.
    Stroll back down and bribe the police officer blocking the door.
    Get out of Emilio's shop and hand the money to Luca.
    2.2. A Grave Situation
    Meet Monk and Paulie at the meeting place marked on your map.
    Walk there or just hijack a car. Cutscene initiated :)
    Now, let's avenge the Undertaker's daughter and kick some asses.
    In fact, those asses belong to two college punks. Crouch after Monk
    and Paulie and hit the first one. Smack him into the wall for bonus
    points in the artistic impression. Follow the red-dressed punk into
    the graveyard and start smacking him into the objects. Note that
    this is compulsory. You won't able to damage him otherwise.
    Once he starts taking damage, dispose of him as of the one before.
    Watch the cutscene, talk to Monk and head on for the Bowery
    in Little Italy, where Luca Brasi is waiting for you.
    2.3. Sleeping with the fishes
    Learn how to shoot from Luca and afterwards drive him to the
    Luna Bar in Midtown. He wants to infiltrate the Tattaglias and
    asks you to be wary if something goes wrong. Having said that,
    these will be his last words towards you. Watch the cutscene to
    see him get strangled. Shoot the two goons who attack you and
    take cover by hitting CAPS LOCK near the wall. Shoot all the guys
    coming out the door in sight. Approach the door and quickly shoot
    the two "greenies" in there. Carefully walk to the destination on
    the map, killing anybody else along the way and shoot the three guys
    including Luca's assasin. After that, head back to your safehouse. You
    will have to get rid of the cops however. You can't outrun them but they
    are lousier than Tanner behind the steering wheel. Drive close to other
    cars in traffic and the cops will probably hit them and thus be stopped.
    Get out of the car (read note below) and enter your safehouse. Save.
    NOTE: If you can't get out of the car, then you are using a
    cracked version. Buy the game, you lowlife! :))
    2.4. The Don Is Dead
    Go meet Monk at the barbershop (DING! You can extort this place.
    Don't forget business extortions and rackets :P).
    Watch the cutscene and get ready. Wheeeew! An attack on the
    Don's life, Monk mowed down by bullets and his sister, Frankie,
    taken hostage. Get your gun out, take cover, and start shooting the
    bastards. Kill them and approach the blue destination on the map.
    See the guy holding a gun to Frakie's throat? See to it that he
    is not going to do it any longer. Shoot him in the head.
    Watch the cutscene(cinematic game, eh? ).
    Hop in the car and protect the car in front of you driving
    the Don to the hospital. Use the same tactics you used in the
    mission before. There will be a hold-up on the bridge. Shoot the
    two guys and shoot the guy with the pupeteer sign above his head
    IN THE KNEE. Do not kill him as you want to interrogate him.
    Afterwards hop again in the car and drive FAST to the hospital before
    the Don dies. After the cinematic, go to the Corleone compound
    and talk to Alfonzo.
    Tadaaaaaaaaaaaaaam! PROMOTION TO ENFORCER
    Afterwards meet Clemenza at the Falconite in Little Italy.
    He'll express his concern regarding the Don's security.
    Go back to the hospital and protect the Don
    from another attempt on his life.
    2.5. Intensive Care
    While you are waiting outside, Frankie will pop up and thank you
    for saving her life.
    Talk to the guard inside and you will lose all your weapons.
    Yeah, yeah, i know it sucks, but do not worry we will get some
    of them back immediately. Go check on Monk, taking a close look
    on his health bar.
    An assasin will shortly show up. Execute him with your bare hands.
    You will meet Michael Corleone who will ask you to help him protect
    his father. Go to the basement together with Frankie
    (no need to worry about her, as she does not have any health bar).
    Take all the rooms and kill every goon you see. Be sure to lift up
    their ammo. You can get a shotgun in the guards room. After you have
    killed all the bad guys, Frankie will drive off in the ambulance
    to alert Tom Hagen, the Don's consigliere.
    Head back up to find Michael.
    As you get up the stairs dispatch two other goons. Talk to Michael
    and afterwards go meet another Contact as asked, on Mott Street.
    Meet Clemenza at Gabriel Villas Taylor Shop in Little Italy.
    Find him in the back room and he will send you to Rosa's place...
    After Frankie escapes in the ambulance and you head back up to meet with
    Michael, you can run into Don Corleone's room (as the door is now open).
    There is a $2000 money bag at the back of the room.
    ***Submitted by Star Dragon***
    2.6. Fireworks
    Get to Rosa's bordello (let's name things straight :D).
    Talk to Paulie, Monk and Sonny upstairs. The Police Chief will
    show up and take Rosa in for interrogation. Go downstairs,
    hit the cash register and bribe the cop. Go through the alley
    and strangle the guards as prompted.
    Make sure you kill all of them and do not get seen.
    If a cop sees you, you have 25 seconds to take him out or the alarm
    will be sounded. Enter the door on the right at the end of the alley.
    Kill the three cops inside and talk to Rosie to check on her.
    She'll be just fine. Now let's get that annoying police sergeant.
    Go to the roof using the elevator and hit him once or twice.
    Punch him further but do not kill him like that. Make it seem like
    an accident and throw him off the roof by pushing him over the ledge
    (grab him and walk with him near the ledge). Talk to Rosa and go
    to the Corleone Compound.
    Talk to some guys around and you will find out about some hits
    you can perform, about taking over warehouses etc. Do so.
    Walkthrough for these side missions in an upcoming version.
    2.7. Death to the traitor
    So...let's see who betrayed The Don. Clemenza will inform you
    the instant you arrive at his house that it was Paulie and now
    you will have to kill him. Head up for the second floor and
    fetch the dynamite. Look down and dispatch of the two goons
    harassing a chef and he will repay you with some ammo and a
    health bottle.Talk to Clemenza and walk with him through the
    alleys and crouch when you are near the bar. Storm through the
    bar. Watch out for the ones in the pool room (three). Plant the
    bomb behind the counter, as marked by the arrow. Afterwards, run
    quickly out of the room. A guard with a bassebal bat will show up
    from the room to your left. Dispatch of him and run VERY fast outside
    the bar.
    NOTE: In the room the guard is coming out of, there are 2000 $. You
    can pick them up, but you will NOT make it out unless you have decently
    upgraded your speed ability.
    Paulie will run like a chicken and you get the honour of doing him in.
    He will run to a closed area where he will start shooting explosive
    barrels. When he is in the back of the area and hasn't got whany other
    way out, crouch and wait patiently. He is also crouching behind a crate,
    but he will eventually start shooting at you. When he does, quickly pop
    him in the head and go talk to Clemenza.
    By now, the cops will have found out about your deed (news travel fast in
    this game, don't they?) and you will have to escape them. Use the tactics
    from earlier chapters (like 2.3.)
    After all this killing you deserve a reward and this will actually be a
    new safehouse, Paulie's former appartment.
    2.8. Horseplay
    Do some sidequests if you wish. When you want to go on with the
    main story,pick up a phone (for instance one at your safehouse).
    You will meet up with Tom Hagen, the Don's consigliere is sent to
    deal with Hollywood star Jack Woltz,who apparently has something
    against the Don's godson. Follow Hagen in his crawling towards the
    stables. Try to keep near him as you can be otherwise easily spotted
    by the guards. After he kills Woltz's favourite horse you will have to
    take the lead. Crawl. I mean it, in generally, crawl the whole mission.
    Silence the first guard (right click + left click + X by default) by
    choking him to death.Creep up the stairs. Enter the house and time
    your moves after the maid and the buttler, since they are (sort of)
    innocent so you can not, under any circumstances, kill them. If you
    do kill them, you will fail the mission. Crouch to the room on
    the right and kill the guard with the back towards you, either
    by choking him, either by using the garrote.
    Move up the stairs and dispatch of the guard on the top floor.
    Again, creep up and wait for the maid to finish her flirt with the guard.
    Once she is out of sight, choke him too. Head for the checkpoint at
    the end of the hallway and watch the memorable cutscene. Anyone recall
    the scene from the movie?
    2.9. A Recipe for Revenge
    Okay, so Michael wants to take out Sollozzo. Drive to the restaurant and
    go throughthe back alley. Crouch and move forward, killing the two guard
    along the way (use the garrote). You'll be at the back entrance so hit SPACE
    to convince the guy to open up the door. He will do so. Plant the gun
    and watch Michael Corleone in action. After he has killed the Capo,
    drive him to the docks as he intends to escape to Sicily. This car chase
    is trickier because the opponents seem to be cleverer. Other than that,
    there are more of them. Use every opportunity to smash them into
    oncoming traffic. Bear in mind that if your car is set on fire,
    you will fail the mission. It takes one or two tries but you will make it.
    Talk to the family member with the (by now well-known) sign above his
    head to continue the story.
    2.10. Now it's Personal
    So it seems Frankie has prepared a romantic evening for you two lovebirds
    Music, maybe something to drink, everything seems perfect until
    some Tattaglia family members decide to ruin your evening.
    They kiddnap Frankie right before your eyes.
    Interrogate the goon in the appartment to find out that they
    have taken her to the Old Chapel in Brooklyn.
    Phone Monk,meet him and then hoof it to the church.
    Sneak through the Crypt (brr), kill the goons standing in your way,
    head into the cathedral and watch the cutscene...
    2.11 The Silent Witness
    This is a really short mission. Interrogate the Tattaglia capo and
    head for the funeral home. Kill everything in sight using
    the walls for protection.
    Be carefulwhen you approach Bruno Tattaglia, because his bodyguards
    have big, powerful shotguns.
    Don't beat him to death because you have to make it seem like an accident.
    Throw him in the oven.
    2.12. Sonny's War
    Sonny decides that now the Cuneo's need to be taught a lesson.
    So he wants to go on a rampage and who other than you can be
    chosen to accompaniate him? So, drive to the bar and do not worry
    about timers throughout the mission since you can easily get to your
    destination. Get inside the bar through the door on your right and
    prepare for a gunfight. If you have taken some businesses over by now,
    then you must know their classical layout. If not, then read closely.
    (And start extending your influence, for God's sake...) Right at the
    entrance there is a guy with a Tommy Gun who can really cause you some
    trouble. At the end of the bar there is a entryway you should take.
    Open the door and shoot the barrels. They will explode killing everyone,
    thus saving valuable time and ammunition for you. If there still are some
    goons standing (or crawling), dispose of them before advancing. However,
    the Tattaglia capo in the back is not at all easy to crack. If you are
    street smart enough, you can just punch him once or twice in the face.
    If not, shoot his knees or shoulders and he should cooperate.
    After you have cracked him, hop into the car and drive to the tramyard,
    avoiding the other mob cars. Sonny will shoot everything out however,
    so you can hover around them. When you approach the yard, avoid the
    trucks blocking the entrance by steering left throught a small space
    between one of the trucks and a building. If you are lucky, you will
    also overrun some mobsters.
    Storm into the bookshop and extort it if you wish. Afterwards, you have
    yet another classical scenery. Open the double doors to the cage area
    and kill everything in sight. Open the other set of double doors and
    watch out for the guys hiding behind some crates. Shoot them, climb the
    stairs, kill the last two goons and interrogate the capo in the room.
    You can kill him afterwards or not. My advice? Toss him out the window.
    It'll earn you some respect also.
    NOTE: You can find some money on the roof. Take the elevator to get there.
    Go all the way back out to the car where Sonny is waiting. Drive to the
    warehouse. Follow Sonny's lead when you get there and shoot the goons.
    Use the exploding barrels to your advantage. When you get to the end of the
    warehouse, pay attention to the truck on the right. Shoot it in a timely
    manner,otherwise it will attempt to overrun you. Enter the warehouse, seek
    cover behind a crate and shoot all the goons. Interrogate the man in the back
    to end this pretty long chapter.
    NOTE: In mission +sonny's war+ when you drive off to the warehouse, use molotovs
    to kill about four goons by chucking the molotov at the barrel on fire. Then
    do the same thing for the truck hidden behind the barrels. If possible, use
    a dynamite.Then, you can save ammo and finish it of. Molotovs are available
    in the Corleona compound underground. (Submitted by Anonymous)
    2.13. Change of Plans
    Answer a phone and you will be ordered to meet Sonny back at the compound.
    Do so. After the cutscene, hop in a car as fast as possible and start chasing
    Sonny's car. This is probably the most annoying mission, as it is full of
    timers. This chase hasn't got any timer, but Sonny can not escape. This means
    you have to stick close to him until the cutscene is initiated. This is pretty
    difficult, mostly because he seems to drive perfectly (if so, why did you have
    to drive him earlier in the game?) and does not smash into any oncoming traffic.
    Your sole chance is to quickly change lanes when you see a car in front of you,
    drive on the other way if possible, shortly do everything so that you don't
    smash into other cars too often. Eventually you will make it.
    NOTE: Notice his route. Sonny drives from the Compound on Canal Street, takes
    the first exit to the right and continues onward from there.
    Watch the cutscene, although the ones who saw the movie already know what will
    happen. Immediately start following the mobs before you. This chase is a lot
    easier as it takes place mostly on 4-lane way where you can easily sneak through
    traffic and you don't have any time limit or condition. Get to the warehouse,
    but stop the car just before it. Get down and crouch. Pop the three guys at the
    entrance (aim for their heads) and enter the construction on the right of the
    entrance. You can find there a health potion and a shotgun, which I seriously
    doubt you don't possess by now. Shoot everyone out, using the crates for cover.
    Remember the layout of the warehouse you stormed with the late Sony last quest?
    This one is exactly the same, so work your way to the blue cross indicated on
    your mini-map. Interrogate the toolbooth worker who will redirect you to a club
    in Hell's Kitchen. Drive there without speeding because the time limit is really
    a wide one.  When you get there, watch out for a shotgun guy and for a goon
    with a Thompson just left of the door.
    WARNING: Their position may vary, depending on the time you took getting there.
    Again, get to the blue cross, shooting everybody along. (The layout is also
    identical to any other bar.). In the target room you will find Ricardo Barco
    and his girlfriend. Barco will not tell you anything if you hit him or thrash
    everything around him. The key is just pressing SPACE in front of his girl.
    You will threaten her and she will ask the Tattaglian to tell you everything.
    He will do so. After you find out who was the one who ordered Sonny's
    assasination, you have 5 minutes to get to the Corleone compound and tell them
    what you found out. This time limit is pretty narrow, but you should be able to
    pull it through using the "lane changing and swinging" tactics.
    2.14. Order to Kill
    You and Monk need to find the mole inside giving information to a Fed agent,
    located in a Barzini controlled business. This is not going to be easy at all,
    since the Barzinis are the strongest family and they take A LOT of shots.
    Meet Monk at the designated place. Prepare a Molotov and throw it in just as
    the door opens. If you don't have a cocktail, then get your gun out and watch
    for the three goons in the hallway. Work your way to the last level of the bar,
    killing everything in sight. Take cover and always hug walls. Aim for the head,
    because it is a tremendous help if you kill opponents in one shot, not to say
    anything of the ammo you save. When you get up, Monk will kill the Fed, thus
    killing the chance of finding out who the rat is.
    What now? The phone rings... Guess what! Monk is the rat! When you regain
    control, run like hell out of the building and hop in the car. Drive to the
    next waypoint, but be careful not to hit too many cars, because this time the
    limit is narrower. When you get there, kill all the guards in the room. Now you
    have two ways: either vault on the low ledge into the next room (which i would
    not advise, because you can be easily shot by some other mobster who came in by
    surprise) or just by following the stairs. Enter the bar finally and crouch
    behind the counter in the bar. Pop out and aim for the head. When there is only
    Monk left, he will run out, trying to mow you down. Pop out from behind the bar
    or use a wall for cover and empty your gun into his body. Take care because his
    shotgun can cause some serious damage.
    Afterwards get out of the bar and the mission is over. Talk to the family member
    outside to initiate the next quest.
    2.15. It's Only Business
    Remember Tessio? You should if you've done some assassinations so far. He has
    turned his back on the family and sworn allegiance to the Barzinis. It is of
    course your job to whack him. This will not be very easy, since you have to
    storm a venue full of Barzini family members. Get in and quickly run on the
    right. Crouch and shoot the guy with a shotgun in the head. Pop the other guy
    also and run for the elevator. Be prepared because there will be two guards in
    front of you when the doors open. Dispose of them and go into the next room.
    There will also be one mobster hiding behind a desk. Kill him too.
    NOTE: Shoot the brown crate behind him. It contains 10.000 $.
    Take the stairs, sending mobsters along the way to embrace death. Hide behind
    the counter, and kill all the goons in there by using the "pop out and shoot"
    technique. After all of them are dead, shoot Tessio. Or kill him any other way
    you please. Go outside and a family member will inform you what you have to do
    2.16. Baptism By Fire
    Go to the church in Little Italy and speak to Michael. Head for the flower shop
    and meet Clemenza who will fill you in on the details. Enter the hotel and talk
    to the two Straccis along the way. Escort Don Stracci in the elevator and shoot
    him as soon as you regain control. Shoot his guards also and talk to Clemenza.
    He will tell you to meet Willi Cicci at the barber shop. Pick him up and drive
    to the Savannah Hotel. He will go inside and bring Don Cuneo with him. When you
    see him in the door, take out your gun and aim for the head. Quickly shoot the
    two other men standing just beside the door and go into the garage, the same way
    Willi went in. Help him out if you wish or don't as he is immortal right now and
    can not be killed. Talk to him afterwards to find out your next target is Don
    Tattaglia. Keep your gun out and as you come out from the hotel mow down the
    Cuneos waiting there for you. You are being followed by Cuneo cars on the way to
    Brooklyn. Use the ol' trick. Smash them into oncoming traffic, then speed up.
    When you feel your car is in danger of exploding, get down and hijack another
    one FAST. Getting don Tattaglia seems not to be that easy as you do not know
    where he is. Talk to the hooker out front and she will tell you he is over at
    the "place of sins" on Plymouth Street. Get in the hotel, bribe the guard at the
    stairs and go to the third level. No tactics, just go inside and shoot his
    brains out. Again, talk to Willi to find out your next and final target is Don
    Barzini. Use the trick above to escape the Tattaglias following you. Meet Al
    Neri, disguised as a cop, in Little Italy. Cool! You get to drive the police
    car :) So...drive it to the courthouse and wait for Al to start shooting. When
    he does, try to aim for the head. If you do not succeed follow Barzini to the
    right side of the courthouse and shoot him there. As soon as the cutscene ends,
    make sure you do shoot him one final time and hop in the sports car. Drive it
    onto the Brooklyn Bridge and try to hold on for three minutes until the timer
    reaches zero. Again, swing lanes and get to cops crashing. After the timer has
    expired, you have three minutes to get to the church in Little Italy just in
    time for the ending of the baptism. After that, it's mission completed.
    *** Go to the Corleone Compound and you will be promoted to Underboss. You have
    just finished the main quests. Now start doing assassinations, extort all
    businesses, take over all rockets, exterminate all the other families and buy
    all safehouses. Game is complete, when you become the Don of New York.
    NOTE: The timings on this last mission are really wide. Really, no point to be
    stressed about them.
    			B. Side Quests
    B1. Assassinations
    These are contract kills given by members of the family like Clemenza,
    Tessio or Al Neri. They are listed in an aproximate order since you
    can receive them randomly.
    The most wanted execution styles will be handled by fulfilling the
    bonus objective.
    Reward: Reward for kill + Reward for Bonus Objective
    NOTE: You must fulfill the bonus objective also if you wish to become
    Don of NYC.
    Just completed the game, and due to a complete ineptitude on my part I
    bloody well went and shot the last Assination Target without taking
    out the goons first, meaning I didn't get the bonus money and respect
    points for at least one Assination target (maybe others?!?)... Anyway,
    to cut a long story short I still got to be Don of NYC without this. I
    was also award the Donship (!) without taking over all the businesses
    (I think I had the Barzini Hub, and Barzini Wharehouses in Midtown to
    take over, and a random Cuneo cafe in Midtown (I had accidentally shot
    the owner and was waiting for it to reopen - incidentally you might
    want to add something about accidentally wasting business owners into
    your walkthrough, as when I first killed a hairdresser in Brooklyn I
    thought I wasn't ever going to get the 100% and was quite annoyed!)
    ***Submitted by Patrick Wallace***
    1. Eliminate Mike Saleri
    This guy threatened Emilio the Butcher. You can find him just behind
    the butcher shop in Little Italy. He is the one you extorted before,
    so now it's time you protect him. Kill Mike Saleri with a baseball
    bat or with your fists.
    Tactics: Run up to him and kill him as required.
    Bonus Objective: Use Melee Combat
    Reward : 500 +2500 $
    2. Eliminate Donnie Marinelli
    Marinelli has evidence that Don Corleone is bribing a dirty cop. He is
    becoming greedier and greedier so he must be silenced. This guy is in
    the Ambassador Social Club in Brooklyn.
    Tactics: Run up to him and kill him as required.
    Bonus Objective: use a baseball bat
    Reward : 500 +2500 $
    3. Dispose of Tony Bianchi
    Bianchi is a Tattaglian capo, friend of Donnie Marinelli. He is very
    dangerous and he is planning now his vengeance. He can be found in
    a brothel in Little Italy.

    Bonus Objective: use a garrote (DING! strangle him)
    Reward : 500 +2500 $
    4. Take care of Freddie Nobile
    Freddie Nobile is a Tattaglian consigliere, who is usually laying low.
    However, he has a weakness for women, especially those in St. Martin
    Hotel in Little Italy. He carries a special powerful weapon. The Don
    doesn't want to be associated with the murder of a consigliere so you
    have to remain unseen.
    Tactics: Either wait so he can't be seen by the maid or by his two goons
    (improbable)  or just wait for the maid to leave and plug him in the head.
    ***Alternate Way***
    The easy way to whack him is to head to the basement and take an
    immediate left while he is talking to the maid. Hide behind the car there
    and wait for the maid to leave. Freddie walks over to another area of the
    basement and his bodyguards spawn. One leaves immediately to guard the
    stairwell, and the other leaves the room eventually, leaving you alone with
    Freddie and his back turned to you. Time for a piano wire necktie, then exit
    through the elevator in the garage. No one is the wiser.
    ***Submitted by Star Dragon***
    Afterwards kill his two goons and bonus condition is achieved.
    Bonus Objective: Make sure nobody has seen the crime.

    7. Kill Leon Grossi
    This guy is a Stracci capo who is blowing up Corleone buildings. Do him
    in before he starts a mob war.
    Tactics: Go to the X on the map, crouch and be prepared for a gunfight.

    NOTE: You might already see a blue X on your map. Sometimes it shows
    up, sometimes it doesn't. I don't know yet why this happens...
    Tactics: Shoot every goon protecting him, but beware the two guys with
    shotguns. Also make sure you don't accidentally shoot Oscar. When it's
    just you and him, pop him in the knee, in the shoulder and finally in
    the chin.
    Bonus Objective: Shoot him in this sequence: knee, shoulder, chin
    Reward: 1500 + 7500$

    of Clemenza. This kill MUST look like an accident.

    killed everybody get to him, grab him and throw him over the ledge.
    Bonus Objective: Make it look like an accident - Throw him off a roof or bridge.
    Reward: 1500 + 7500$

    He wants to gain some advantages by destroying the Corleone warehouse in
    Hell’s Kitchen.
    Tactics: This can be tricky. Stop the car infront of the warehouse and enter it
    WITHOUT having a gun out. Hit CAPS on the opposite wall on the left and start
    shooting the goons. When you are through with them, walk up the stairs on the
    right. Pop some of the guards and run towards the orange X on your map. Kill
    some of the guards here, also, but NOT all of them and more important than
    anything do not approach the stairs. From down here, crouched behind a crate,
    start shooting your target, who is upstairs.
    If you can't kill him or if you started climbing up the stairs, he will run and
    initiate the bomb. Don't run after him. Instead run out the door you came in
    towards the entrance of the warehouse, where you left your car. Pop him in the
    head before everything blows to pieces.
    Bonus Objective: Kill Salvatorre before he blows up the building
    Reward: 5000 + 25000 $
    12. Dispose of Jaggy Jovino

    Barzini family. He doesn’t know he’s next in line so you can get him when he’s
    visiting Rose in Little Italy.
    Tactics: Really easy one. Just make sure you aim right :) When you get to his
    room, shoot him directly in the head and make sure you place your cursor right.
    Bonus Objective: Do not hurt any of the girls
    Reward: 7500 + 37500 $
    13. Take care of „Big” Bobby Toro
    „Big” Bobby Toro is the Barzini’s capo, wanted by the Corleone. The Barzini know
    that there is only one place in which he can’t be touched – the prison on
    Riker’s Island.
    Tactics: You need to move quickly so he doesn't get to Riker Island. If you see
    any policemen, shoot their shoulders and their knees if they bother you, but
    do not blow their brains out.
    Bonus Objective: Do not kill any of the policemen
    Reward: 7500 + 37500 $
    14.Eliminate Mario DeBellis
    Mario DeBellis is the Cuneo’s capo who hides a grudge for the Corleone.
    He controls a small, but powerful army. If he’s not treated properly, he might
    start a war.
    Tactics: A tough one, I reckon (STOP MAILING ME ABOUT IT). Drive to the location
    and get out of the car when you enter the area. Plug the goons in the head and
    go up the ramp to where Mario is. Shoot his knees and quickly run down the ramp
    where you can find a truck. Drive the truck up the ramp and run him over. If he
    survives once, he will not make it a second time.
    Bonus Objective: Run him over by a car
    Reward: 1500 + 7500$
    15. Assassinate Ronnie Tosca
    Ronnie Tosca is the best capo the Cuneos have. He tries to hurt the Corleones
    indirectly, by not allowing any transactions with the local black
    market dealers.
    Tactics: Approach the barbershop in Hell's Kitchen. Get out of the car and start
    shooting his guard. I suggest you first kill the guard holding a Tommy Gun since
    this is the most difficult to get. After you have disposed of some of them, run
    into the shop, take the back door and blow his brains.
    Bonus Objective: Make another hole in his head – kill him with a single headshot
    Reward: 4000 + 20000$
    16. Eliminate Pietro Testa
    The Corleone family is losing respect from the local police officers.
    The man behind this is Pietro Testa – a Barzini’s capo. Kill Pietro just as he
    is shaking hands with a cop.
    Tactics: Aim for Pietro's head when you have him in sight and pull the trigger
    as soon as he moves his hand to engage in the shake.
    Bonus Objective: Kill Pietro when he’s shaking hands with a police officer
    Reward: 5000 + 25000$
    17. Assassinate Domenico Mazza
    Domenico Mazza is the Barzini’s consigliere. He’s a wealthy, but completely
    paranoid man, who’s financing a whole army of guards. Killing him will
    definitely be tough so try to turn one of his men against him. He was last seen
    in Midtown, your friends should know his exact location.
    Tactics: True, very true. Lots of guards and what's worse is that they all are
    Barzini meaning they are very tough. To complete the Bonus objective, find the
    guard and bribe him (Note: He is near the park entrance). Also lay low and pop
    him as quickly as possible. And make sure you succeed, else you are going to
    have to bribe the guard again, thus losing further 10000$.
    Bonus Objective: Bribe a guard, so he will help you
    Reward: 10000 + 50000$
    18. Silence Emilio Barzini Jr.
    Emilio Barzini Jr. Is the new vice boss of the Barzini’s. He has organized a
    funeral of the recently deceased consigliere – Domenico Mazza. Use this
    opportunity to dispose of Barzini once and for all. Emilio is fast and clever.
    You’ve got to stop him before he escapes.
    Bonus Objective: Eliminate all of the Barzini’s before taking care of Emilio
    Reward: 10000 + 50000$
    19. Eliminate Luciano Fabbri
    Luciano Fabbri is the Cuneo consigliere. Even though there’s a truce between the
    Cuneo’s and the Corleone, Luciano wants a war. He’s got a rather big influence
    on their people. Kill him before he makes a mess.
    Bonus objective: Send a message to Luciano laughing from him before his death
    Reward: 37500 + 7500$
    20. Dispose of Marco Cuneo

    leader, responsible for the death’s of many of the Corleone’s troops. Find Marco
    and avenge them, but be smart – try to make it look like an accident
    Bonus Objective: Throw Marco into a ditch or on the railway tracks
    Reward: 37500 + 7500$
    B2. Execution Styles

    ***Alternative Tactics***
    I actually received this execution style inside a club. There is a small set
    of stairs and a landing with a bannister. I fought a goon up there. I was
    trying to figure out the wallpaper execution and meant to throw him into the
    wall, but missed and he toppled over the bannister. Got "Watch your step."
    9. Wallpapered Execution

    B3. "Easy Money" Stashes
    I've found at least six of these so far. There's a chevron shaped arrow flashing
    and either some action a box or with money in it between $2000 and about $10,000
    and there are usually suprises when you take the money.
    There's one in the industrial yard south end of Brooklyn, next to the guy with
    the assasin pistol.
    One in the Lincoln Tunnel. Four Stracci guys and a truck.
    Some Sewer Building, in the Little Italy Industrial Park, or the Verona
    Warehouse area, don't remember which.
    Two in the Rail Yard in Hells Kitchen off of 12th where the Holden Holdings
    building is. One just east of the building, and (best one so far!) at the far
    North end of the same rail yard. You have to drive through several tunnels,
    and it's in a box car. Biggest payout so far (around $7000), and best suprise!
    Make sure you are outside, preferably to the north of the box car when you break
    the crate. Lots of fun.
    There's one strange one that I haven't figured out yet. In the park at 42nd and
    sixth, where you get some of the hit contracts from Al Neri. It shows up
    randomly, and there are two guys south of the fountain with the arrow flashing.
    When you approach them, they run off saying
    "Cover me while we get the guys who killed Don Corleone."
    There's a truck, and a fight with about 6 goons. Once you kill the goons there's
    no money, just the truck, and if you blow up the truck there's still nothing.
    *** Submitted by Andrew Scott***
    ***Additional Info by Larry*** The money at 42nd and 6th is in the crate behind
    the truck, shoot it to find the money
    B4. Business Extortion
    Every shop owner has his key to crack and be willing to pay you protection
    money. Bear in mind that you have to extort ALL the businesses in town in order
    to become the Don of NYC. However, before trying to reach their weak point talk
    to the target. Perhaps they might respect you enough to agree without any other
    Star Dragon has submitted a few tips he has collected so far. I've added mine
    Bakers: Hang them over the furnace in the back.
    Club Owners: Cash Register and/or patrons.
    You must shoot the patrons in front of the owner and take the 'badge' hit.
    Cigar shops: Execute a goon in front of the owner.
    Hotels: Shoot the maid or the bartender in front of the owner.
    Brothels: Hang the girls out the window or shoot one of them in front of the
    Gambling: Shoot him in the knee or just hit him once or twice.
    Roof top smugglers: Hang them over the ledge.
    3. Hints and Tips
    * Always hit CAPS near a wall. You can easily shoot the goons afterwards.
    * Don't drive like a maniac or you will end up having a high wanted level.
    Instead swing through traffic at high speed rate.
    * Start expanding your influence early on with the Tattaglia's and the Cuneo.
    Don't take on other families until later on in the game.
    * Try to perform as many hits as possible and respect the execution style
    if you wish to become the Don of New York City
    * Always use the map. If you need to get somewhere within a time limit, always
    plan your route by using the map. Be attentive and pick the shortest way.
    * If you are doing the assassinations and at a certain point in the game, you
    don't see any orange dot on the map, this means you have to continue with
    the main story
    * Again, let me underline, that if you are having troubles getting out of the
    car in 2.3. this means you are using a cracked version of the game. Buy the game
    and do NOT mail me asking how you can get a working crack.
    * Sometimes, in assassinations you might not see a target mark above the heads
    of the ones you are to kill. This is due to a bug, so far i noticed. You will
    have to work out who the target is, but this is not that difficult, as targets
    are always dressed differently compared to plain mobsters. Again, mail me if you
    have troubles, but READ THE GUIDE CAREFULLY FIRST.
    * Clothes don't seem to affect gameplay, other than you get some comments from
    pedestrians for nice clothes. They don't seem to gain you any respect while
    extorting businesses. The "Respect" value of the clothes is actually respect
    points that will be added on to your character in game when you load next, so
    clothes are a way to turn cash into respect points. Clothes are purchased from
    the Main menu "Load game" screen by pressing "Edit." (Submitted by Star Dragon)
    * Didn't think that was necessary but here it is: Get the execution style before
    you exterminate the other families.
    (Note: There are some people mailing me who consider execution styles can be
    accomplished even if you vanished all other mobsters. You can still drag people
    out of cars and hope you encounter a mobster. This is your best shot, but the
    chances are slight.)
    * Once Underboss, extort all the businesses in one area instead of a few all
    over.  It makes it easier since the vendetta levels will decrease for ones that
    are really high while the area you are taking out will go up.  Doing this will
    allow you to go into the other areas after their vendettas are low and take over
    there and since you took out the other area no need to go back and reep the
    benefits of doing so.
    * To avoid smashing your car (especially during timed missions) constantly honk
    the vehicles horn. Cars, Trucks, and People will get out of your way, before you
    even reach them.
    * When you get Paulie's apartment as a safehouse, go upstairs and face the
    huge window. Break it using free aim and then you can target the trucks and
    shoot it. Then, you can also take down the guards and if you want anyone
    else. Then just get the money from the safe house.
    * Sometimes, when you buy a snubnose ammo or upgrade from the guy in the park
    in Little Italy, there is an ambush. Corleone people are there and there is
    a shot out. You can take part in it, but mostly, the vendetta does not
    increase but your respect does. Sometimes, vendetta also increases.
    * If you are confident with your ability to get as close to the breaking point
    as possible, the more you beat up a store owner, the more they will pay each
    payday.  This is an easy way to earn some extra money every week.
    * Note that you can still become Don of NYC even if you don't have all execution
    styles or contract hits completed. Never happened to me though...
    * It seems that the trigger to become Don of NYC is the achievement of level 50.
    (Thanks Don Grito)
    *I would advise only buying the top level guns ( 3 star )
    and I would start with the street sweeper. It makes the
    middle-end missions very easy when you have 6--20 bad
    guys in one room. Next buy the 75 clip Dillinger, and you can
    own any palce you want. (Additional Info by Gregg)
    *Get dynamite early and blow EVERY SAFE as soon as possible. It costs $450,000
    just for the gun you need. (Additional Info by Gregg)
    *Buy all of your streetsmarts levels , dropping a couple in Fighting and Speed.
    Fill Smarts, then fighting, then speed, then health. (Additional Info by Gregg)
    *When you pay off the cop, He does not mind you "borrowing" his cop car.
    (Additional Info by Gregg)
