Mafia Wars Moscow Loot Preview; Strategy Guide

Looks like the new Mafia Wars expansion is indeed going to be in Russia. It was announced late last night that Mafia Wars: Moscow will be the next expansion. As a teaser, 8 new loot pieces were put into game this morning that randomly drop from jobs.

Again, these items, just like the 4th of July items, drop completely randomly from jobs. So, if you want to get these items, just use your energy pack and do the 1 energy job in the Street Thug tier a few thousand times. That way you can be sure to get them all!

Here's a pic:

Weapons:

.45 ACP Pistol - 18 attack 12 defense
Dragunov - 36 attack 14 defens
Grach - 20 attack 10 defense
IZH-35m - 28 attack 15 defense
PPSH 41 Submachine gun - 22 attack 8 defense
VSK-94 Sniper Rifle - 28 attack 12 defense

Armor:

Ushanka: 10 attack 20 defense

Vehicle:

Impression: 15 attack / 35 defense

Special Reward Item for Collecting All 8:

Shturmovik(armor): 45 attack / 28 defense



There is two options here. First off, these could just be limited edition loot pieces and mean nothing. However, if these are actually pieces that will drop from jobs in Russia, it means that Russia content will start out at a pretty low level, just like Cuba did, so that both new players and advanced players will be able to use it.

As far as release date goes, this promotion alone will last about a week. So Mafia Wars: Russia will not come out for at least another week. Then, they will probably put it in beta just like the did with Cuba for a week. I can't imagine them releasing it too soon because El Cacique just came out and it is a harder tier to master with an 872 politico corrupto requirement. Stay tuned for more updates about Mafia Wars: Moscow!

  1. So far after spending 4500+ energy on doing the Mugging Street Thug job, I have yet to get the Impression.

  2. still waiting on a vsk-94 sniper rifle after over 6000 energy used. if anyone wants to gift me, Facebook ID:1704271271.

  3. Unfortuantely these items are not giftable, at least not yet. I'm guessing once the promo is finished we will be able to do so. That is how the 4th of July loot items worked.

    ReplyDelete
  4. These items are dropping nicely from fights as well. I have received 6 of the 8 items (plus 3 duplicates) out of about 125-150 fights won. I have only received 1 so far from finishing jobs.

  5. thats how random works guys

    ReplyDelete
  6. crap this really sucks, after buying countless crates to get a dragunov, their making it free?!?! gotta be kidding me

    ReplyDelete
  7. as anyone actually obtained all of them yet? Because the last missing one seems to be impossible to get on the same account

    ReplyDelete
  8. Yes, it is possible to get them all on one account: I got all of them today. I leveled up about 40 times with about 2000 max energy. I was a little frustrated because it dropped about five to ten of each before I got the last one. I didn't do the mugging but rather did Send some help home to New York. So, yes they will drop from one job done repeatedly. I also utilized my stamina on all of these levels.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Did anyone notice that all of these items are what were available in the Red Hammer Crates. The Shturmovik appears to be the only truly new item that is offered by this offer.

    ReplyDelete
  10. I got all of the items in a little under 500 energy by doing the Mugging job.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I am 3193 jobs done today and hundreds of fights. Have bunches of weapons/hat but only one car. No dragunov yet... It is driving me nuts.

    ReplyDelete
  12. We have until midnight pacific time on monday night to find them all. And i too have spent over 1000 energy and have atlest 4 of each, but still no impression. does anyone have any ideas on how to get the last item????

    ReplyDelete
  13. I got 7 of the 8 pieces within 18 hours (2 different sessions) doing fights and jobs. Most pieces dropped in Cuba fights and one or two in NY jobs.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I got all 8 within an hour using the bank heist job. I just used the repeat job bookmarklet after I leveled up. When I came back to my computer I had 3 sets of the 8 items.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I got all 8 collections, but I didn't get the bonus Shturmovik.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Can somebody tell me - today - what are the best stuff to load up on - I'm all confused and I can't keep track

    ReplyDelete
  17. On one profile spent 2000 energy doing mugging and got 7 out of 8, i need one weapon left (vsk 94 sniper rifle)

    one my other account i got 7 out of 8 spending about 500 energy just doing normal jobs, and i need the impression

    it would be gd if i could gift the items then i would be done :@

    ReplyDelete
  18. It seems that as the time goes on less and less of these items are available - very frustating if u are like me spending 1,000 energy doing muggings and gett no items

    ReplyDelete
  19. Yeah, as soon as I hit 7 I slowed down a lot as well. I finally got the 8th piece from fighting.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Will it be possible to get the Shturmovik in Mafia Wars: Moscow as a loot drop? Because I really want that item but I cant seem to get the Dragunov or the IZH 35m.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Have now spent about 5,000 energy and im about to give up on the last item

    ReplyDelete
  22. whoever spent reward points on the red hammer crates, ur really dumb for buying them in the first place. i have 6/8 items, and 12 grachs!!!!! GIVES ME THE IMPRESSION AND VSK OR DIE!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I've done hundreds of jobs and tens of fights today (Friday) and I have not received a single drop of these items. Yesterday I got 7 of 8 with multiples of several. It doesn't seem to matter - today - whether I'm doing low or high energy jobs in Cuba or New York. Not a single drop of the Russia stuff.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I'm the first poster who couldn't get the Impression. I STILL can't get it, but on my alt I got it instantly. OMFG

    ReplyDelete
  25. i agree i have now 4 of everything but no fn IMPRESSION. about 4,000 energy and 200 fights! come on!

    ReplyDelete
  26. just posted and just got the impression and the bonus item.

    ReplyDelete
  27. i got 3 through cuba and the rest through mugging but i didnt get anything through fights not even an extra hat

    ReplyDelete
  28. huh. Just got it. Spent around 6-7k energy total. Basically yes, it is true, what is said before. Once u get to 7 out of 8 the dropping becomes real slow. I had to do mugging for 2k worth of energy without a single drop, until i finally got the VSK. So do not despair, it is possible =)

    ReplyDelete
  29. First you guys have to understand how random numbers work. It doesnt artifically "slow down". Statistically its a lot harder to randomly get a single specific thing than either of two or any of 5 from a set of 8. Random numbers are random though. On average getting the 7th will take longer than the 6th and getting the 8th will take longer than the 7th. Some people will chain knock it out and some will never get all the items and try reinstalling windows to fix the issue. All you can do to maximize your chances of finishing it are to click "do job" as many times as you possibly can. That may mean doing a 1xp job a bunch, or you may get more mileage from doing a job with a ratio that lets you chain level. Its all about how many times you click the button. Make sure to fight as much as possible too, its all the same thing. FWIW I finished mine out in two evenings doing jobs in the boss tier in NY and fighting a lvl 1 guy as much as possible. Call it about 10,000 energy (my bar is 3100 energy).

  30. Does anyone know how people are geting Roman Mace's and Galea's?

    ReplyDelete
  31. I got all 6/8 objects on Friday... I just need the impression... though I just can't seem to get it

    ReplyDelete
  32. hey so does anyone know if you'll be able to gift the items after monday night? So i can get the other items if i havent gotten them all by monday night.

    ReplyDelete
  33. people are getting the roman maces from the best of crates

    ReplyDelete
  34. Been stuck on 7/8 items for 2 days now...on both accounts. Missing the Dragunov on both. Really frustrating...

    ReplyDelete
  36. Know what's frustrating? It's not the lack of any russian drops since Friday morning. It's not being able to clear my news history any more.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I have spent countless energy and stamina trying to obtain my last russian item. "Dragunov"

    ReplyDelete
  38. No you will not be able to give the items, just like the other events.

    ReplyDelete
  39. guess im one of the lucky ones. didn't have to go back to the early jobs, I just tried to finish the jobs I hadn't and fought everytime I had the stamina to do so.

    ReplyDelete
  40. i cant feel my finger anymore!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I have 6 of 8 items. I have a few extras but am still missing VSK-94 RIFLE AND DRAGUNOV if anyone wants to trade my id is 616680184

    ReplyDelete
  42. I've got all 8 items and no bonus/special/reward/thingee! I must not be holding my tongue just right or my fingers are crossed wrong... I dunno..

    ReplyDelete
  43. finally, got it all after doing over 1200 jobs a day for three days...

    ReplyDelete
  44. The russian item dropping went really quickly for me and then the last items just seem damn near impossible. I have not had a russian item drop at all today, 8/30/09. They seem really easy to get in the beginning and then just taper off in drop %.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I feel the same way as well, that they've getting harder and harder to loot as each day passes (I play several accounts). On my main account, I've had 7/8 items since the first night.

    Just spent 858 energy points doing single-point jobs. 858 clicks, and only looted 2 items--both of which I have about 7 or 8 each. Missing the Dragunov.

    ReplyDelete
  46. spent 3k energy today...got more than 10 of everything...EXCEPT THE IMPRESSION!!!!!! COME ON YOUVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME!

    ReplyDelete
  47. im level 9 with max 20 energy. I have 7 out of 8 items. I have 2 immpressions and like 10 druganovs!!! i cant get IZH wtf i can get all those items the day they came out. THIS GAME IS SO RANDOM!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  48. man im begining to think the first four items u get are more likely to appear cause the first item i got the ppsh like 9 times, then 6 apc and grach, then 1 dragonov and last but not least 1 izh.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Got all the item. i dont know how. but i using autoplay. :) Impression i got 4. who want some?

    ReplyDelete
  50. I do think the drops have slowed for me, not because I can't get that 8th item, but because I'm seeing fewer russian loot drops of any kind since the weekend started. Guess I still have a few hours to work on it...

    ReplyDelete
  51. Got 7/8 quite a few days ago and in last 2 days spent over 3000 doing 1 point job and no Dragunov. Got i think 3 random Moscow pieces but drop rate is horribly low 1/1000 :(
    Most of my pieces came from fighting.
    Drops overall definitely seemed to slow down since Friday.

    Grach x7
    .45 APC x10
    PPSH x5
    IZH x3
    VSK x2
    Impression x2
    Ushanka x8
    Dragunov ZERO!

    ReplyDelete
  52. I couldn't get the damn Dragunov either. Got the first 7 within 24 hours of the release and then nothing. I must have spent 5,000 energy, fought at least 1,000 fights and still didn't get it.

    ReplyDelete
  53. i got all the items in the first few hours itself. Now after it is over i have multiple numbers of each. The max i have is .45 acp pistol which i got 70 times and the leeast is the impression which i got 8 times.

    ReplyDelete
  54. I was out of town and couldn't play til friday, spent over 10000 energy and did 100's of fights and only got 6 items.

    ReplyDelete
  58. I got the last one remaining in mine called the Dragunov an hour before they were going to be gone. I should give a 'thank you' gift to my friend who gave an energy pack. :-)

    The Shturmovik is awesome.

  59. after spending 6000+energy and 2000 stamina not got Impression.

    ReplyDelete
  60. I have heard that you can only get a certain number of drops (32 I think is the claim.) After that, if you didn't get all 8 then it's bad luck.

    ReplyDelete
  61. There isn't a maximum number of drops; it's just that the chances of the drops occurring decreases with every drop you get. That's why the first few show up pretty quickly, and if you're very lucky, you'll get all the items in that time. Otherwise, once you get to about 31-32 items, the percent chance is so low you will spend hundreds (if not thousands) of energy between drops.

  73. I can not figure out how to finish episode 1 in Russia. The last job will not unlock and I have looked everywhere I can think of for advise. Please, any suggestions?

    ReplyDelete
  74. um cant u just click on the items u need and it will buy them for you, if my memory is corect u need 1 mill for both of the items u need

    ReplyDelete
  75. I have all the items I needed to do the jobs. I finished LEvel 1 of the jobs and it won't let me move on.

    ReplyDelete
  76. the last job has a "help" button. Click on that, you do not need to buy those items to do the jobs.

    ReplyDelete
  77. Once people have responded to the help enough for the bar to fill up (usually 10), then the next chapter opens up.

    ReplyDelete
  78. I am on level 2 in moscow and all jobs are blue and say 3% mastered. How do I get to 3rd level?

    ReplyDelete
  79. Do each of the Moscow episodes have 3 levels to master? I have completed episode 1 and it shows as level 3 mastered, but levels 2 - 5 are only up to level 2 mastered.All of the job bars are blue and at 100%. How do I master level 3 on episodes 2 onwards if everything looks complete?

    ReplyDelete
  80. you have to get help from others to move on

    ReplyDelete
  81. yeah but also the way u master lvl three is by doing all jobs on that episode 100% mastery then after u "finish him" a little box will apear at the top of ur mafia web page and it will say ___ (whatever lvl u are of mastery,) and it will tel u to continue to next episode or contiue to master lvl ____(3,2,1 whatever,) of that episoad. once finished lvl 3 mastery u will get a speical bonus item

    ReplyDelete
  82. yea - when the game works properly.

    ReplyDelete
  83. I've finished Moscow, but no signs about victory like in New York :(
    How come?

    ReplyDelete
  84. Ditto for me not being able to finish Moscow. Is the game broken or am I?

    ReplyDelete
  85. For Level 1 - 6 everything is complete, except of
    the additionals e.g. "Take Out Viktor "Sibirchik" Titov", it's still locked and I have no idea how I can complete it...Any idea or is that normal?
