Mafia II

Note - Hello. Today we will be going through the achievements for Mafia II. I'm going to go through the achievements in what I believe to be the most efficient and easiest way possible.

1) In your playthrough, you'll play on Hard difficulty. You will also get all the missable story related achievements, which includes the lovely Playboy magazines.

2) Next we will get all 159 wanted posters.

3) We will then mop up any leftover achievements.

4) We will go through the DLC, Jimmy's Vendetta.

5) We will go through the DLC, Joe's Adventures.

Good Luck!

I have a few good tips for you.

Cover is your friend. Always use cover while playing this game because death can spring upon you within a blink of an eye. Cover can get you out of some of those tricky situations, as well as save your life.

While in cover you can do a pretty accurate quick shot just by tapping LT then RT respectively.

If you are driving fast, and you need to brake fast, you can just turn the speed limiter on as it slows you down more efficiently then the brakes.

Phone booths are a big help if you want the cops to stop coming after you whenever they see you. Be warned, it costs you $500 to get those pricks off of you.

Gun Shops aren't the only places you can buy guns. In fact, Harry and Guiseppe will sell you much better guns than the gun shops will.

On Jimmy's Vendetta whenever you are doing a mission, and you are at the end, but there is still time left, don't finish right away. Go around and blow some cars up until the clock is wearing thin.

Good Luck!

Getting right down to business, you will start your playthrough on the hard difficulty. As a general note, there are several achievements in the walkthrough that are not explained as to how you unlock them. Don't worry, those achievements will unlock as you progress through the story!

It's time for the wanted posters! I'm giving you two guides to work with. The first one, from Achievement Hunter, is the guide you should use first. I recommend using the second if you miss any of the posters. At the main menu if you select extras, then collectables, and then wanted posters, you can see which ones you have as well as the ones you don't have. The second guide shows you what the posters real numbers are. The Achievement Hunter guide doesn't have the proper numbers, but is better put together. While you are collecting the posters, use the same car to collect all of them. If your car starts going very slow, it probably means you need to refuel it. To check how many miles you have on your car, take it to your garage and store it, then reopen the garage and pull up your car and it will tell you in the stats.

You will get an achievement when you bring your car to 125mi/h. There's a video guide below, just in case you don't know what I'm talking about.

Now we'll get the leftover achievements. Get a fast car (not the one in your garage) and go the mission "Saving Marty." Start this mission, but this time, we are not going to save Marty. Instead, take your car to the Empire Diner in the top left of your map. Beside the diner is a big field of grass. Now just drive in it sharply veering the left stick right to left. This will make your car drift. You'll need a drift to last for 200 points.

Now load the last checkpoint. Now restart "Saving Marty" again. This time we are going towards a different Empire Diner. This time you will be going to one that is close to the bottom left of the map, it is directly north of a body shop. Once you're there, turn around and floor it back towards the direction you came. You will go straight down the street you're on and drive off a big jump. The achievement you are going for right now is a bit buggy so it may take a few tries. It is buggy in such a way that if you land with a lot of speed or in a drift the achievement for getting a 200 point jump will not unlock. The way it worked for me was when I hit the jump and flew straight into a little tree. This made it so that I didn't drift (because I was still in the air) and didn't get a velocity point since my speed was stopped.

Jacked Jumper

Reach 200 points for one Jump in "Joe's Adventures."

Now you need to go to Guiseppe's and Harry's to pick up Molotov and grenades. Grenades are found at Harry's and Molotovs can be found at Guiseppe's. Now go start up the mission "Going Out Of Business." You need at least one point in each of the following for the achievement that we are working on:

  • Drift
  • Velocity
  • Jump
  • Vehicular Kill
  • Explosive Kill (Grenade)
  • Burning Kill (Molotov)
  • Regular Kill
  • Headshot Kill
  • Melee Kill
  • Demolition (blow up a car)

Make sure you get all of these things before ending the mission. Don't stress yourself about the drift, velocity, or jump too much. You can always get them after you get all of your kills. This will unlock after you reach the safe zone.

Reach 10 different score actions in one mission in "Joe's Adventures."

Now remember that car you put in your garage? It is time to get it. Go to the body shop and upgrade the engine to it's max. Now follow the video guide below until you get to 2000 points for your velocity. P.S. I didn't make this video so don't be mad at me for the bad quality, the only reason I put it there was for you guys to know the route to take.
