A complete guide for Mafia 3.
Mafia 3 may not be the game we all wanted it to be, but it’s still a significantly important game- it’s a game that takes a stand with its subject matter, and a game that doesn’t shy away from being controversial. Amidst all the discussion of Mafia 3‘s themes and controversial content, one, however, tends to forget that there is also an open world game in the mix. It’s not the best open world game – indeed, early reviews indicate that it may be a bit of a repetitious grind – but it’s one that will likely find a lot of players nonetheless.
It’s an open world that comes with all the trappings of modern open world games- a non linear structure, and loads of collectibles littered around the map, as well as upgrades to deck your character out with. If you happen to be one of the players for Mafia 3, then you probably want to get the most out of the game. That’s where we come in with this guide. From upgrades to collectibles (Hot Rod Magazines, Vargas Paintings, Junction Boxes, Propaganda Posters), from cheat codes to the fastest car in the game, to some of the Achievements and Trophies available, our Mafia 3 Mega Guide will help navigate you through all the game’s many intricacies.
Upgrades in Mafia 3 work in a very interesting way- they are perks that are available to you as ‘favors’ that you receive from your three underbosses, and they come complete with a skill tree like progression of their own. Give a capo control over more districts of the city, increase their earnings, and you’ll unlock more favors and upgrades from them.
There are three upgrade trees available, each corresponding to a capo. These are:
No open world game worth its salt can go without trinkets and collectibles littered all over the map for the player to hunt down these days. It is simply inconceivable- and so, Mafia 3, too, has a wide variety of collectibles that are peppered throughout its vast in game map, just waiting to be snagged by the player. Do you want help picking all of these up? Then this section of the guide is sure to help you.
Hot Rod Magazines:
What would an open world game be if it didn’t let you collect magazines of some sort, hidden all over the world? It’s seriously become a trope of open world games at this point (I personally can’t wait for the TVTropes page on the subject).
Meta commentary aside, Mafia 3 tasks the player (at least the completionist) with collecting all Hot Rod magazines. There’s a lot of them, and the game’s world is massive, so this can be a bit of an unreasonable ask. That’s where the videos below will help. The videos below, separated by location, will let you find all the Hot Rod Magazines in New Bordeaux.
Among the many collectibles there are in Mafia 3 are the Vargas Paintings. There’s a whole lot of them littered around the map, and for the completionist OCD player (such as yours truly), they can truly be a nightmare to hunt down. That’s where we come in. The videos below, separated by location, will let you find all the Vargas Paintings in New Bordeaux.
There are a lot of Junction Boxes in Mafia 3 for the player to find them- and especially given how large the game’s world is, players can get frustrated trying to hunt all of them down. Never fear, though. The videos below, separated by location, will let you find all the Junction Boxes in New Bordeaux. Get to it!
There are 31 propaganda posters hidden throughout New Bordeaux in Mafia 3. Some of them are especially well hidden, so finding them all can be a big pain, especially if you’re a completionist. That’s where the video below comes in- it walks you through the locations where you can find all 31 propaganda posters in Mafia 3.
Mafia 3 Infinite And Unlimited Health, Money, Ammo Cheat Code:
You know what’s the primary currency of just about every video game ever made, in one form or another? The player’s health. Your in game health is how your interactions with the rest of the game’s world are determined- if your health is too low, or if you simply suck at the game and lose a lot of it, you’re going to have a hard time trying to make much headway into the game.
For Mafia 3 players who, therefore, suck, or for those who have completed the game at this point, and are just interested in it as a sandbox to muck around in, there is a cheat for the same. Please note that we have not verified whether these cheats work and we are merely reporting on this. So use them at your discretion. For infinite health this video may certainly help- it will effectively leave the player with infinite health. Furthermore one can possibly unlock infinite ammo and infinite money by checking the video here.
Mafia 3 is an open world game in a semi modern setting, so naturally, jacking and driving cars is a big part of what it is. And while most players treat cars as expendable commodities in open world games, there are those who will undoubtedly be interested in trying to land the best of the best car for themselves. In Mafia 3, that car is the De’Leo Stiletto, and it goes at over 120 miles per hour. The video below will show you just where to find one for yourself.
