Mafia Wars Moscow Locked Boss Fight Links; Strategy Guide

Edit: The links now work!

For most players, all Mafia Wars Moscow boss fights are mistakenly locked, effectively blocking these players from advancing to the next level. I had posted up some links a few months ago, but these have since become outdated due to a recent game changes. Thanks to Scott (of egg oddity fame), who tipped me off about this change.

For the highest chance of success, you should be logged into Facebook and be in Moscow. Then, right click on the boss fight that you want and click "open in new window". If you try to copy and paste into a new browser window, for some reason this will not work. Make sure you give the game enough time to load so that the help box will pop up.

  1. Noticed that too but for me it just sends me to the next tier and gives me the mastery item(which is all I really cared about anyways).

    Not sure why it's doing this but thanks for puttin up the links

  4. I can't seem to make it work for me. I have been looked out of Moscow for 3 weeks now and I have wrote them every day and I still can not play. I have been done with New York and Cuba long ago. Any suggestion on what I can do?
    Thanks for any help I can get.

  5. I can't get the links to work. It just sends me to a "blank" page and no matter how long I wait it is still the same...

    ReplyDelete
  6. Okay - I changed the links and the way to use them a little bit. Here's the thing: You can't copy and paste the links into a new window. Make sure you right click on the links and then click "open in new window" - that way works for me, but trying to copy and paste the links does not.

  7. Right clicked on the link and opened in new window, but still get blank page (left it up for 10 minutes). . . . . :(

  8. Same here, I contacted zynga, but no answer yet. I dont get the mastery item and it seems some tiers I have been repeating over and over...very frustating, makes me want to stop playing because whats the point to play if I dont advance?

    ReplyDelete
  9. Not sure.. it works for me. I'll see if I what I can do about a fix later tonight when I get off work.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Links just go to blank facebook page for me. I tried with IE and Firefox. Cookies allowed.

    ReplyDelete
  11. The last fix made it work for me, thnx mafia wars guide ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  12. Can anyone tell me what you get when you finish Moscow?

    ReplyDelete
  13. the link worked, i posted job on my wall, but people cant help me, it says i already was helped. i did not get the mastery loot....sooo frustating.....

    ReplyDelete
  14. @ Karen - nothing special outside of the normal job mastery rewards (1 high quality loot piece per tier.. boring)

    @ anon - once you request help for a boss, just let it sit there and don't leave that page until someone helps you. It bugs out if you hit the "home" tab or leave mafia wars.

  15. Are these links you ahve posted to do the Boss job early, or simply once you have finished chapter 3?

    I am currently on level 2 of an Episode and chapter 2. And the links do nothing but bring you to the mafia screen and then finishes loading. It doesnt open anything, transfer files, download anything, or any other kind of load up procedures that give you teh idea that the page is loading or getting ready to put up the Boss Job Post.

    So I am wondering if this is just a way to force the post when you have finished chapter 3 adn are ready to do the boss, or if it is for you to unlock the boss fight early..

    I was under the impression that this may be like the Laundering link that forces Mafia to post your Help Launder money post..Not sure if many have noticed, but people dont get the chance to launder money anymore.

    Before if you helped Launder someone elses money you would randomly get the chance to put out your own post to help you Launder money. Now I see fewer adn fewer other then from people like myself that have the link to force Mafia Wars to post my Laundering Helpm of which I do 30 times and day..

    With the lack of otehrs posting them anymore, more and more people help me, mainly due to the fact you can only help 2 people a day. So the fewer people the posting the better.

    A few times I have had over 20 people help and recieved over 170 exp pts.

  16. laundry link only starts occassionally when u do new york jobs. Almost everyone is done with new york so it's logic that there are less laundry posts (except the forced ones)

    ReplyDelete
  17. I tried what was said to do, it allowed me to publish it, got help but it remains locked.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Same here; only one person was able to help, but it shows no progress and remains firmly locked :(

    ReplyDelete
  19. Same happens to me.
    Episode 1 Boss Fight remains locked.
    Your link worked and I was able to post and call for help on the Dimitri Leonov fight.
    However, only 1 person was able to help me, didn't get any $Rubles, no Xp as well and job remains locked. Also, no Bonus Weapon for completing Episode 1 (BTW, what is the bonus item for completing this episode ??).
    However, i did get the title "Matyoryj Baklan".
    Am i doing something wrong ? Is this the way the whole thing works or is there something else i can do to get more $$ and loot out of this fight ?? Help please !!! --- Thnx !

    ReplyDelete
  20. Also, forgot to mention that eversince i did all the above mentioned, when i am in Moscow and in the Home Page, there is always the message :
    "You can't receive your bonus early unless 10 friends have helped you".
    However, 1 only was able to help and when i ask others to help me using the post i made using your link, they always get the message that they are too late and the job is no longer active.

    WTF !! any hints ?? Let me know

    ReplyDelete
  21. It's just the way the fix works - you won't get much XP or money out of it.

    It's not worth that much though anyway. This is for people who have their fight locked for some reason and can't get to the next stage of Moscow.

  22. Hey, my lvl 3 mastery of episode 3 is locked. I mastered all of the jobs, but can´t get to the next level. what is this?

    ReplyDelete
  23. Nevermind.. works again :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. So I was able to post the boss fight for episode one and after one person helped I posted a request for more help and it said you were too late for anyone else that tried to help. It said I needed 10 friends to help, but only allowed one. Any ideas?

    ReplyDelete
  25. is there more too Moscow than level 6? I've completed all the jobs, now what??

    ReplyDelete
  26. Thank you soooo much! I tried a link on a different site but it didn't work ... this worked PERFECTLY!!! I can't thank you enough ... Zynga REFUSED to help me with this issue!

    ReplyDelete
  27. same as Mindi and zynga is no help at all

    ReplyDelete
  28. This sux, the guide dosent work and im stuck at bronze, so i cant master any tier......

    ReplyDelete
  29. Hey, much thanks for the links to the Moscow bosses. I'm amazed at how bad Zynga competency has gotten lately. Maybe some of the posters here should send in their applications for a job. It seems many of them understand and can run MW better than some of those monkey's there now.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I am not having an issue with unlocking the boss jobs. My problem is it will not let me advance, after I post the boss job. So I can not access the second or third tiers on any level. Keep getting the cant get the bonus until 10 friends help. Frustrating beyond belief that I cant fully master any tier.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Just leads to a blank page...

    ReplyDelete
  32. The problem for me is that:
    -I am gaining no stat points
    -Not getting the title for Moscow
    -The bar not showing job advance percentage
    -"Get help" button doesn't work, so I have to spend energy on it...


    The fix for me for the boss fight was just waiting for a bit. But I "killed the boss", the page had shown me as mastered the whole job tier WITHOUT the mastery item and the titles...

    Oh right...I'm using Chrome and the links just lead me to a blank page

    ReplyDelete
  33. As of today, those links do not work, at least not in Firefox.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Just gives me a blank page. Can't unlock any of the boss fights ion any levels. Anyone have a suggestion?

    All my Boss fights are locked (Episodes 1 - 5) - I am still currently completing Epi 6.

    Any advice? Is anyone else having this prob?

    Thanks

  50. Is this ever going to get fixed??? I can not finish Episode 5 or 6 final boss jobs for 3 months now!!!..(already said I mastered them even though I do not have enough weapons to do the job) I've had to do Episode 1 twice because once I finished, it started me back to chapter 1...I don't think I'll ever officially finish Moscow..moving on to Bangkok!

    ReplyDelete
  51. I can not finsh Moscow.. It always start again..

    ReplyDelete
  52. This doesn't work for me either. I have tried the advice that was given previously with opening it in a new window. Still nothing. Just a blank mafia wars screen.
    Also have the problem that when I buy the items needed for last job before the boss fight it completes the job and I don't get to do boss fight.

  58. I have completed all jobs in episodes 1-6 that I can. One job in each episode is locked. How do I unlock the last job in each episode. Right clicking to open new window does NOT work, nor do the above links. These are not boss fights, they are jobs.
