Chop Shop New York Property

For the first time in well over a year, there is a new property available in New York, the Chop Shop!


However, you can't buy it. You have to "build" it with free gifts:


Essentially, there are 5 different item types that you will need to pick up 10 of each from your friends (50 total items). The only thing is that each person only has access to 2 of the Chop Shop items, so you will need to collect from at least 3 different friends! To send these items to your Mafia Friends, simply go to the free gifts page and look for the items labeled "Chop Shop".


Here are the 5 items required to build your shop:

Acetylene Torches
Cement Blocks
Power Tools
Car Lift
Shipping Containers

You will need 10 of each! Alternatively, you can buy pieces for one godfather point.


Once completed, your Chop Shop is a standalone building that produces 1 random vehicle each day. The quality of the vehicle seems to be completely random as noted by the info in game - you can end up coming back for the day to collect a completely worthless vehicle or a good one. I see it as more of an incentive for people to check out this developing properties page.

  1. I see it as an incentive not to waste my time with it. Are any of the vehicles better than or equal to the Zoloto?

    I am still on rackets and was amused to be getting all these parts for a feature that I don't have in the game.

  4. Actually, I think it's a disease spreading through all the Zynga games. "Go collect all these different things from your friends. Become beggars. Do what you must to put this stuff together!"

  5. 10 minutes of my time, 40/50 using a glitch I will keep secret. 1/10 on the other part, may as well drop 9 RP? Incentive is to continue cheating, even though Bangkok is frequently cutoff as "Ban" before my page loads :D

    I see it coming, but you can't get me, because you love me.

  13. Anonymous --> a glitch I will keep secret... Good for you!! But...

    I believe there is no limit how many chop items you can send. I just send 20 each 2 items I can send and 1 friend of mine also sent to me 20x2 items to me. Then I just sent back 10 items of each to him and he did also same to me.

  14. @anons asking about rackets - not sure when you will get properties.

    @anon asking about quality of vehicles - its random; you can get higher qualities than zoloto, but it wont happen every day.

    @ anon asking compendium not working and saying settle a beef has changed: I am not sure what you are talking about - it still is at 35 for me and you have been the only one to report that. It sounds like you may have lost your wheelman (or do not have an 11% wheelman) - check that.

    There is a 60 day money back guarantee, if that doesn't fix your problem or there is another issue please email me at mafiawarsguide@gmail.com

  15. ok i have bought this guide not longer than 2 weeks ago tops

    ReplyDelete
  16. so how do i get my refund and do not think im just trying to get ur secrets and take my money back i can give u proof that it will be impossible to folow ur speed leveling guide

    ReplyDelete
  17. therefore the rest of ur strategies cannot work much ex how to collect 500 of each items really fast so im guessin u have to test it wen u release /if u release a bangkok strategy

    ReplyDelete
  18. Send me an e-mail - I am sure the strategies still work, but if you want a refund, that is not a problem. Either way, I do not know who you are, so you will have to email me your billing name.

    ReplyDelete
  19. to what email should i send it to u

    ReplyDelete
  20. mafiawarsguide@gmail.com ... i posted that a few posts up and it's on the compendium site lol

    ReplyDelete
  21. No wonder he's having trouble following the guide...

    ReplyDelete
  22. first anon@12:24 shut up second i knew abt that email i just thought maybe u had another email in mind like ur personal one just for handling billing issues

    ReplyDelete
  23. i disagree with u anon saying guide not working i srated at 3:00 pm till 8:00 pm which is just 5 hours i am currently lvl 136 with 62 godfather points first 6 tiers of ny and first 4 of cuba and working them together and i lvl up with every and i mean literaly every energy bar with left over energy

  24. Any word on when us Rackets people will get Properties? I already have the 50 items... :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. @2:27 anon - Thanks! Update will be soon, chipping away at it an hour a day lol.

    I'd like to think the guide is working out well for customers, as my refund rate is ~2% while the clickbank's standard rate for products is reportedly 10%.


    @anon at 4:32 - patience is a virtue! Sorry that's not of much help lol. I thought I read that some people who have rackets have been converted over already, so there is still hope!

  26. Due to a glitch I got "The Darkon" again. I just done the episode 6 Gun Down Some Russian Muscle job again and it said that I successfully completed episode 6. Strange.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Too bad "The Darkon" sucks balls.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Eh still wondering how you can make a Kodiak out of a machine based shop...

    ReplyDelete
  29. @MWGuide: It seems there is a bug now that you can exploit to get the chop shop immediatly!
    Go to "My Mafia" -> "Free Gifts", select the item and select a person, send a chop shop item.
    Then do it again :D The name is no longer removed from the selection list, so you can send gifts over and over and then have the receiver reward you with the items aswell... I almost have a complete set in less than 1 hour now :)

  31. @nobi - some people still have rackets.. unknown when it is going to make the switch

  32. I finished the chop shop and collected a Zhar-ptitsa (according to the message that popped up), but I look in loot and it's not there. Anyone have any thoughts? On a secondary player I clicked the acheivement - it gave that player the same thing and again - it's not there. Am I looking in the wrong place for this vehicle?

    ReplyDelete
  33. yep, same thing happened to me. Got an ATV but it's not in my loot. Useless it is.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Same thing just happened to me. I got a vehicle starting with "M". I should have got the name. :/

    ReplyDelete
  35. I have same problem.
    I always get Zhar-ptitsa collected, but they're not included in my inventory.
    When I clicked "chop shop complete" on others walls, they're also disappeared.

    ReplyDelete
  36. So people who have rackets will get properties ? and if so then what happens to our influence points ?

    ReplyDelete
  37. About the people with the problem of not getting their vehicles: I tried getting the vehicle on an alternate account, and while the alternate account didn't get it, the account WITH the chop shop did. Some sort of glitch which may or may not be solved.

  38. I thought the Money (egg) Achievement is hard enough, but now it sucks if you didnt login :-/

    I'm at lvl 640 Mega Casino 600 Uptown Hotel 440 Office Park and 370 Office Yard but it feels like it takes a year until i'll reach the achievement now. i only get 403 million dollar per hour (haha) if i can login so precise.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Are the vehicles produced by the Chop Shop giftable? Trying to decide it it's worth the effort. If it's going to produce lame vehicles at least I could shuffle them off to lower lvl mafia members...

  40. i still have my rackets n i've collected al my chop shop so wen do i get d properties can dey make dis faster its jus so frustrating..... n wat bout our influence points??

    ReplyDelete
  41. i asked a mafia wars admin, and they said they are working on it to change the peoples from rackets to have properties. In one way i'll miss the rackets to. but I hope the chop chop is really worth it now.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I can't wait to be switched to properties... I hope it happens soon. I can't stand the rackets.
