Gun Running Operation and Yaa Baa Parlor Faction Businesses

As I have mentioned earlier, as you do jobs for the Yakuza and Triads, you will earn faction points. In addition a variety of good loot pieces, you once you earn a trusted reputation (700 or higher faction points), you will be able to earn faction-specific businesses, the Gun Running Operation (Yakuza) and the Yaa Baa Parlor (Triads).

Unlike normal businesses, these business produce boosts rather than money. This system is a lot like the politico corrupto in Mafia Wars Cuba; you can not upgrade the quality of the boost, but rather the capacity (amount of boosts the business can hold) and the output (the amount of boosts produced every 3 hours).

With that said, here are the businesses, the requirements, and the outputs:

By earning 700 or more reputation points with the Yakuza, you can buy the Gun Running Operation for B$300,000:



The Gun Running Operation produces Black Market Ammo (+32 attack skill) boosts every 3 hours. It starts out producing 1 every 3 hours, but can be upgraded to 5 every 3 hours.


By earning 700 or more reputation with the Triads, you can buy the Yaa Baa Parlor for B$300,000:


The Yaa Baa Parlor produces Hyper Alert Sentry (+32 fight defense skill) boosts every 3 hours. It starts out producing 1 boost every 3 hours but can be upgraded to 5 boosts every 3 hours.


You can get both businesses, in fact, it is rather easy to max out both factions, just follow the information in my previous faction guide post.




Fully upgraded, you can collect an extra 80 boosts per day (10 every 3 hours). Not too bad at all!

  1. Wtf how much money did you buy to max out both faction so quick? Or perhaps gf wasted?

    I salute you

  2. Loll. This is ridiculous. Even with four levels mastery, I am certain I will finish the first two episodes before the real release date. I'm finished with Brawler and on gold mastery for Criminal. Sure hope future episodes are a bit more challenging..

  4. I spent 10 gf points on B$110,000 - but that was actually wasted; an energy refill would give me more I figured out later.

    At any rate - I got enough money maxing faction to buy those businesses plus fully upgrade the first two. I will be posting info on the last few businesses in a few days.

  5. How can you get so many B$ in such a hurry?
    Even after 10 gf points on B$110,000 that money is nothing when trying to buy a weapon or taking over a business.

    Please share it with us and not keep it to yourself.

    Thx for the useful insights.

  6. Are you ppl still having problems with the tool bar?

    i found a way to correct it. When your tool bar says the energy boost is ready, click the box that says mafia wars and switch to another zynga game(like farmville), then click "play", load that game, then click the game box again and select Mafia Wars and click play. This should allow you to recieve the mini energy boost.

    And sorry if someone already said this

  7. I forgot to mention to repeat the proccess to recieve your mini energy boost and avoid the bug every time its ready.

  9. I just helped someone with a Cuban job, and it dropped a Wall Carving as a special bonus. According to the Mafia Wars wiki, this is a Bangkok Episode 4 collection piece. I won't post the link here, but if you go to Google and search for the mafia wars wikia page, then search for "collections" it lists all of the collections through episode 5 of Bangkok, just wondering if anyone else noticed this as having happened to them or if you could only get it in the beta.

    Keep up the good work, enjoy Bangkok!

  10. hey, i am wondering, how many consumables does one need for the jobs, is it as excessive as NY!?

    ReplyDelete
  11. Thanks APerfectC - interesting.

    @anon - not many consumables at all. maybe 40-50 cell phones so far and i've finished both the first two episodes.

  12. mwguide just curious how much is your max energy really .....
    I betcha its in the high 5000 to be able to breeze thru this haha.

    ReplyDelete
  13. @anon asking about how I got baht - I have around 7,500 energy - between mini energy packs, normal energy packs, and the ~50-70 gf points I spent, I collected a couple million Baht in the process lol. I have the first three businesses fully upgraded and purchased the 2 boost businesses just to see what the boost was.

    @anon asking about energy - see above!

    ReplyDelete
  14. And as far as what I spent GF on - I bought money once, but quickly realized that was a mistake. An energy refill was much more efficient. I bought some energy refills to power through the "get help" job masteries that have the long 12-24hr cooldown. I had about 180 GF points saved heading into Bangkok.

  15. just got a glitch... but dunno how. suddenly got this few minutes after asking for help.
    Your Mafia was eager to help on Take Down Boss Suchart job. You earned B$2,000,000 and 1 experience point.
    =) immediately upgrade business...

    ReplyDelete
  16. Wow no wonder so its imposibble to advance like you did unless having 7500 energy, speding real $ and 70 gf @_@

    ReplyDelete
  17. Didn't spent any $ on GF - you get a free point every other level, plus there was 30 free GF at the end of december between holiday event, NYE event, and fan page links.

  18. I had so many people respond to the "take on motorcycle thugs" job, the bonus was over 1.3 million B$ !!! Fully upgraded first two businesses in one sitting and still had enough left over to buy whatever I need for jobs. Oh and an FYI for those that have "Rackets" like I do, The Truck driver usually gives -6 energy cost for jobs, but in Bangkok I've been getting either -9 or -10 making the cost to exp. ratio much more appealing

  19. I just finished both eps of Bangkok! =D

    Going into it, I had saved up 100 GF.

    I've fully upgraded the first three businesses, and just bought the forth.

  20. I'm not sure if this happened to any of you but I don't know how I earned around 250 million baht in my bank.

  21. feb8th-feb10th, there was a glitch alex, now in new york when you have to collect from your properties (new version), while you were doing that, if you had another tab open in your browser that was in bangkok you would get the same amount you banked in new york, in bangkok as well.. it's been fixed. Some people cashed in billions. i just read about it, lucky for you, thats a ridiculous amount for bangkok.

  22. I've upgraded the Yaa Baa Parlor to produce 7 boosts every 3 hours. I can upgrade to 8 boosts for $1.4 million. Does anyone know how far you can go?

    ReplyDelete
  23. Yes these boost businesses are VERY expensive. Can someone please post the chart on the money cost per upgrade? That was done here for the cash businesses but not the boost businesses.

    ReplyDelete
  24. should i buy weapons from the fraction store or these boost businesses first?

    ReplyDelete
  25. ^ it depends on how powerful u are.. if u ve all d items givin greater than 40 a and def used by ur mafias, then getting boost first wud be a better option.. on d other hand if u ve crappy inventory(well excuse me) get armor items frm d faction store first. dey r strong & permanent..
