Mafia Wars Moscow Job Requirements Matrix; Strategy Guide

Here is a matrix outlining the items that you need to purchase in order to finish each tier in Mafia Wars Moscow all three times. Special thanks to Don Scott for helping with the graphics (clicking will open image in new window):

M stands for Mafiya requirements, V stands for Vory requirements.

I am fairly sure this is accurate, but there is a chance there are one or two requirements missing. If you notice something is off, please post in the comments so that we can fix it. All item numbers indicate the amount needed to progress through the tier for the third time.

As a side note, the my guide, updated for Moscow, will be ready by the end of the week. Stay tuned (and be ready to check your e-mail to the people who submitted the post a few weeks back)!

  3. awesome post, but you should also make note that concealable cameras are also a requirement for some jobs in Moscow.

  4. Awesome! This is what I have been waiting for since Moscow episodes 5 and 6 were released -- I'm still trudging my way through episode 3 since I don't have an energy account; this chart is going to be very useful!

    And to Anon above, I don't think Concealable Cameras shoudl be included in the list. They are easy to come by compared to the items you must buy with rare R$, so including them would just distract from the important part.

  8. Thanks so much! But why are Forest and Arctic camo suits listed as necessary for both Mafiya and Vory tracks in Episode 4? If you pick Vory for all three mastery levels, you would only need arctic camo, right?

  9. absolutely brilliant, thank you!!

  10. NEW UPDATES 11/03/2009

    RACKETS cost money and influence seems like it has been removed

    ReplyDelete
  11. @Marc, you still need both Forest and Arctic Camos whether you choose Vory or Mafiya. The finale job requires both

  12. The idea is fantastic

    are you sure you do need blaclava, Taksi and Dvina on later episodes 4,5 and 6?


    Double check that, cause we can sell them and reduce the bribe, but this would be profitable if later episodes we do not need them , THis is very importatn, please check it again

    ReplyDelete
  13. those are both listed as "-", i.e. none needed for the later episodes.

    If you're looking for a total cost, it's somewhere between 5,000,000,000 and 6,000,000,000(!) rubles for all the items.

  14. to the person who said rackets were changed - I checked my rackets account today and it had influence still and new rackets cost influence?

  15. Hello I'm Fabian and I live in Argentina. I love much your blog and always read it translated (like this letter translated in google so the typos).

    I play the Mafia Wars recently, I'll get to level 80 and I mastering to the hitman level. and started to play in Russia, end of episode 1 and now not to do: stay in Russia or mastering capo, consigliere, and so on.

    I have a very small mafia (30) Wheelman 1% and Mastermind 3%. Also wanted to know if my level to go well on energy (330) health (170) attack (90) Defense (90) and stamina (13).

  19. I am level 125 and have never had to wait for energy thanks to this guide...

    Just wanted to let mafia wars guide know the chart above is incorrect because it does not take multiple items to complete jobs like 9 taxis in Moscow.

    I bought one taxi and used it on multiple jobs, so not sure where they got that you need 9 taxis for Episode 1...

    I am a lvel 3 capo and have not had to wait for energy thank you MWGuide

  20. Fabii - Uh, I'd probably start over if I was you. However, New York first, other tiers later.


    Benny, in Moscow as you work through each tier, the requirements increase. So you only need 3 taxis for the first time through but for the third time through you need 9.

  21. good thank you very much for your advice, I'm mastering capo.

  22. the rackets stuff is true indeed!

    probably some bug but yesterday my influence was gone then came back again today and now is gone again.

    all available rackets were costing the same but the currency changed from influence to money!

    unfortunately my influence accounts are full with attack rackets but i tested on my main account (70 influence) and now i have 20 dockyard scams running for only $2560 cost! yay! =)

  23. here are some pics showing the rackets "bug":

  24. LOL at the influence its definitely a bug, was just playing and instead of it costing influence it cost money, and the exact amount that it would have in influence. Truck company cost 16 influence and while i logged in and saw the bug it cost $16 instead, i got about 25 truck companies going right now before it switched back to influence instead of dollars, but my influence meter at the top is still missing although it now says it costs influence again. either way as long as i get all those truck drivers it will help lol.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Yup, now my influence is back and it came full, beyond maximum!

    the only problem is that now i'll have to wait for 2 days to put it to some use... lol

  26. Is it worth the money to buy the Munitions Camp or the Trafficking Operation? They cost so much, is the return worth it or is the money better spent on the supplies needed for jobs?

    ReplyDelete
  27. just made a post on that. the answer is yes. the trafficking operation pays itself back in 40 days, and the rest pay themselves back sooner.

  28. Awesome tool!!! Thanks!!!!

  29. question- you suggested unlocking episode 4 asap to unlock the job "escort services" for some good cash and suggested selling all your equipment in doing so. Should i do the same for episode 5 too for the 1mil job ? the equipment in ep3 is alot more expensive to buy back compared to the equipment sold from ep1 and 2 and iam wondering if the loss will exceed the money saved from bribery.

    ReplyDelete
  30. how do i get more dossier on dmitri......i can t complete jobs because of this!

    ReplyDelete
  31. they're from 'Receive Vory Intel From Dmitri' Jobs in episode 1, vory only

    ReplyDelete
  32. I'm currently mastering the first stage of Vor (ep. 5). But, after seeing the job requirments and total cost I'm wondering if it isn't a sensible idea to sell everything I have, then complete 6 first, then sell everything and then finish ep.5. Is it faster to clear 6 first then 5 or is it better to finish 5 first then 6?

    ReplyDelete
  33. The Dvina vehicle is only used 9x in Episode 2. Maybe they have changed it inbetween. Blofeld's Loot List computes the right values already.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I have completed to level 3 all jobs on all levels but don't have any indication that I have completed Moscow. The boss jobs are locked and I have not received any specific loot for completing like NY. Is this the expected behavior?

    ReplyDelete
  35. If you've mastered tier 3 and your boss jobs are locked, then you've completed those tiers. Sometimes it doesn't notify you with a post (or you just click past it when you get your last boss job finished window listing who helped you). Just check your loot tab for the tier mastery items, you should have all 6. And congratulations for finishing Moscow!
