Extorting businesses

  • When you are having trouble extorting business owners, try destroying some of their property and/or hold a gun to their face. For example, when you are trying to take over Good Eats in Brooklyn. you can hold the gun to the man's face then reholster the gun and extort. He will refuse. Simply draw your gun again, lock on, and hold it. Keep doing this until he caves in. Do not forget to reholster your gun to avoid accidentally shooting him. In another example, when you are trying to extort money from the hotel owner in Brooklyn, hold a gun to him twice, break the downstairs cupboard, then finally blow his safe before you beat him into submission. Always buy available rackets first. Take a trip around to either buy another racket or go around the block. Do not attack until you visit again, and instead of enemy soldiers you will find all your soldiers. By doing this you do not have to fight a bunch of enemies and get your vendetta up.
  • If you have not taken over all the businesses and rackets, wait until you have reached the "Don of New York" rank. You will be able to take over anything without having to smash anything up or "convince" the person that it is a good idea. They will say "Yes" immediately.
  • Play all the missions until you reach the Underboss rank. Make sure you have the Vendetta level at the minimum. If you do not, bribe an FBI agent and save the game. Go to any business you want to take control of, but do not attack any rival family members outside and inside so they do not attack you. Enter the business and immediately talk to the owner. Do not break any objects or attack. He or she should accept Corleone's protection without any need of convincing. Now that the back door of the business is open, enter and find the racket boss (if any). Again, talk with him without causing any disturbance. You should have the "Buyout" option available. If you follow all of those steps carefully, you can take the control of any business and racket without the use of force and without the risk of starting a mob war. You will get the maximum benefits, respect, and payday incomes. Finally, if you enter a business and suddenly your enemies attack you, concentrate on killing them with your guns. Do not destroy any objects, throw bottles, injure innocents or the owner, as this will pressure the owner and you will not have the maximum income. Note: After taking over a business, you can also kill the rival family members to gain some respect, but you will also gain vendetta and heat. Also, if for some reason the owner's pressure meter appears at the top right corner, quit the game and retry. You will not have the maximum income no matter how much pressure he takes.

Robbing banks

The type of bank will determine the easiest way it can be robbed. The type with the three guards and one room is by far the easiest, and should be robbed as often as possible. Use the following trick to rob it without being chased or even getting past two shields. First, bribe the cop outside. Then, go into the bank and choke the first guard by the door. Next, go into the vault area and start strangling the guard on the left. The other guard will come and attack you, but he will not shoot. He will only hit you with his billy club. Remember to strangle the man on the left first because he tends to start shooting with his shotgun if you attack the other guard. If you are robbing the big bank, start the same way by bribing the cop outside. Then, go in and immediately strangle the guards in the main room. Hurry down to the vault and strangle the two guards there. Open the door and blow the vault. Ready your Tommy gun for action. Three or four guards will attack you as you flee the vault. Get close to them as you are shooting them and you will perform an instant execution. After you shoot them, run up the stairs and move to the right. Then, take an immediate right to leave the building where the car is always parked. Get in the car quickly because you will be shot at when outside. Take off and you should not be chased after you hit the streets. After any bank robbery you must go to your hangout to get the money. The best bank to rob is the midtown bank, close to the apartment that the Corleone's give you after you save Michael. You wll get $50,000 there.

Taking over compounds

  • To take over a compound, equip your self with ammunition for all your guns, or you can use one powerful gun to kill other gangsters and take their gun. You must have cover at any time possible. Note: When behind the bushes to the left of the entrance they can shoot you through the bushes. Once inside, do the same thing and always have cover. Then, run downstairs. In the back house there are two men. One is behind a box and there is another behind a pilaer. After those two are dead, set the time bomb (not dynamite). If needed, stay in the basement and die, then drive back and repeat on the other house.
  • When the time to destroy the rival family compounds, the easiest way is to blow up one building at a time. Make sure you have all weapons with full ammnition.
  • The best way to take over a compound is to kill everyone from afar then work your way in. The enemies will not respawn as long as you do not leave the area (about one city block). Simply hide behind things by crouching, then shoot around corners to get kills. It is also recommended that you upgrade at least two of the pistols (preferably the pistol or sawn off magnum, for speed of shooting).
  • When trying to take over a compound, use your car to run people over. Then, hop off and use it as a shield. Once you are in the yard mow down any enemies. Then if you have a lot of ammunition, take one step into the house and shoot at the floor or person. The enemies should step out as you hide. Shoot them, then continue into the room with the couches. Someone could be hiding behind the couch. Run to the basement being careful to clear it. Plant a bomb. Do the same in the other house.
  • Stay far away from the gang members guarding the business or compound, enough so that you cannot lock on to them. If you pick them off from a far range they will not shoot back. You can clear the area without getting shot.
  • To kill enemies quickly, you need to get a Street Sweeper. This gun will kill enemies in one shot. An upgraded Tommy Gun will also help if your shotgun runs out of ammo. It is also a good idea to have dynamite and Molotov cocktails to blow up the road blocks. Once you get into the compound buildings, go to the basement to blow them up. Make sure to collect the extra ammunition before blowing the building up.
  • When you think you are ready for the challenge, take on a compound. The Tattaglias in northeast Brooklyn might be the weakest family in New York, but that does not mean they are going to let you walk right in. Bring some bombs along and blow up the support pillars in the basements. You may start a mob war, but if you are successful you will have a new safe house with a group of guards.
    and
  • When taking over a compound get a fresh undamaged car. Blast through the roadblock by going to the far left or right, then keep driving and use your car as a shield.

Taking over rackets

When taking over rackets it may be harder not to buy them out, but you will usually get more if you find their weak spot For example: With a person you can buy out for $800, if you find his weak spot he will pay you almost $900.

Assaulting warehouses

  • Before going on a warehouse assault have these items: pistol (full ammo), Tommy gun(full ammo), shotgun (full ammo), Magnum (full ammo), Molotovs (6), and about $25,000. When going to a warehouse, try to blow up the roadblocks. After that, stand there and shoot at oncoming gangsters with your pistol (headshots are essential). Then, go in to the warehouse area. Stand behind boxes and shoot your enigmas with the pistol or Magnum (again with headshots). When you actually enter the warehouse, have either your shotgun or Tommy gun ready. Most enmeshes will have shotguns and Tommy guns. When you kill them, search for the owner. He will have puppeteer hands. Buy him out. Do not hit or injure him or you will not be able to buy him out and will have to use pressure. On the way you will have almost certainly started a mob war. Do not bother looking for bombing business. Instead, check the map for the nearest FBI agent and bribe him. You may lose $3,000, but it is less risky. You will now have a warehouse and won a mob war at the same time.
  • To take a warehouse, just drive a car into the blockades and keep running over people. If it catches on fire, turn your door side away from the enemies, then get out and find a new car.

Destroying barricades

  • Use the following trick when you go to a hub, warehouse, or compound with people and cars blocking your way. Get a truck and run into the cars and people until it catches on fire. Then, finish off the other people that are still alive.
  • When destroying barricades, stand close enough that you can lock on to a person. Take either dynamite or a Molotov cocktail and throw it. It will blow up the cars next to the people. Continue doing this until you have reached the warehouse, compound or Hub.

Blowing safes

You must blow all safes to become Don Of New York. Blow all the safes when you are taking over businesses that have one. By doing this you will not have to search for safes after you completed most of the missions. Also, you will get an amount of money, 1,000 respect and dynamite by blowing them up.

Easy special kills

On missions where you have to kill an important figure in a certain way (such as pushing them off a roof or into a furnace), you can do this easier by luring your opponent over the hazard you must use to kill them before fighting with them. Just avoid them and run over to the hazard. They will come over to you. Beat them up a bit but do not kill them completely. Then, grab them and swing them so they have their back to the hazard. Then, shove them to their death.

Shooting enemies behind cover

When you are locked onto an enemy who is hiding behind a crate or low object, keep locking on but move the crosshair to a part of their body that is sometimes sticking out, like their head or arm. This will help you kill them easier.

Respawning bums

Go to Stracci Container Park (where you get the box of $120,000 in the maze). Go back until you see a wall. Turn right and kill the bum there. Come back and another set of bums will attack you.

Easier driving

  • While driving down the street, honk your horn constantly. This will send other cars to the side of the road.
  • Go to a police station and bribe the police chief. You can then steal the police car without any trouble. Turn on the siren. Cars will now move out of your way.

Car chases

When you are being pursued by enemies in a car, let them drive up on your side. Usually they will come up near your rear on your left or right. Then, look ahead and lure them into an accident. Usually they will smash into something like oncoming traffic or a wall if you time it correctly. They will eventually come back and catch up to you, but if you keep doing this you can get them to blow themselves up (because you cannot shoot out your car at them).

Losing the police quickly

  • If you commit a lot of damage and kill a lot of people, you will get wanted stars. If you get enough stars, the police will chase and shoot you. To lose them, just move to a different area. All of your stars will immediately go away.
  • When you have heat, go to another neighborhood. The heat level will go back to zero. However if you have cops tailing you they will continue to do so.

Avoid getting shot

When you are getting shot by another family or cop, grab someone nearby and use them as a shield. By doing this, you will not get hurt while being shot.
