                      [GENERAL TACTICS]

[GANGSTER SKILLS]

We'll cover all the skills that gangsters can pocess. Please note 
that stealth and weapons skill come as standard for an ordinary 
gangster. Any other skill will require more money to pay for his/her 
wages.


(Weapon skill) 

does what it says. The skill level of using any weapon and the amount 
of damage done to an opponent. Does not take into account the weapon 
itself though. Muscle and police all have a 2 star rating.


(Stealth) 

How close you can get to an opponent without being spotted. A little 
pointless in my opinion especially when you've got muscle. If your 
stealth rating is higher then a muscles one (ie 2 stars) there will 
be no benefit to the muscle or yourself as the muscle will get 
spotted along with you. 


(Fast driver skill)

 This allows a specialist gangster to drive cars a lot faster then 
ordinary gangster. A useful little trait especially doing drive bys 
as you take less hits and you're able to do more damage as you turn 
corners faster and right yourself properly for a second run. Even the 
most slowest cars can be driven faster then ordinary gangsters with 
the fastest cars.


(Bomber skill)

Incredibly useful in all manner of work. The bomber skill is 
something you just can't live without. It's useful for breaking 
people out of jail, removing pesky police officers under someone 
else's pay roll even using it as a hand grenade to kill large amounts 
of people. But the charm of this skill is for clearing offices. Don't 
even think about clearing a gangster's office without someone with 
this skill. As the bomber can clear buildings with lots and lots of 
gangsters still hiding out inside the office. But each time somehow 
the gang leader and his muscle always survive the blast only to get 
blown away by you.

At the basic level it will damage building and hurt muscle on the 
higher skills, only the most toughest gangsters survive the blast. 
Rigged cars will destroy both occupants and the vehicle.


(Charmer skill)

This is only good when a certain person isn't under someone's pay 
roll. But when you're wanted, very few people will listen to you and if
you try to charm the police, you'll get arrested. When the person is 
wanted, it's Suggested that charmer skill should be put to good use in 
the early stages of a level or on defenceless people like preists. Once 
he's wanted, just use him like a normal gangster and use the kidnapper 
to do the work as charmer (see kidnapper skill for 
details).


(Assassination skill)

Another vital skill for any gangster, this skill allows gangsters to 
eliminate other gangsters WITHOUT THE NEED TO KILL THE MUSCLE. Make 
no mistake this skill is useful when you've been caught in the open 
and it's just you and a gangster with muscle after your blood. By 
applying this skill, the gangster dies, the muscle leave and they 
join a recruitment centre adding more people to that pool. With 3 
gangsters that can assassinate you're indestructible against 
gangsters on foot and can guard areas efficiently. But The only 
drawbacks are that you'll have to tell them to use their unique 
ability and second the skill is useless against gangsters in cars and 
trucks.

Gangsters with assassination skill are absolutely useful in all 
levels, especially in the last few levels when wave upon wave of muscle
protected gangsters keep coming. Assassins will make short work of them.


(Kidnapper)

These people are able to capture people for information and for 
influence. The longer they hold their prisoner the more wanted your 
gangster becomes. When kidnapping keep a watchful eye on your 
prisoner. He make a run for it when there's danger or when he thinks 
he's got a chance to flee. This could cause all sorts of problems. 
You also need the right skill level depending on the person you're 
kidnapping. This is broken down into:

Dignitaries 5 stars
Gangsters 3 stars
Enemy business specialists 2 stars
Priests and other characters. 1 star

Kidnap skill is the only way that you can rescue someone, get 
influence without a charmer and the only way when you're wanted. This 
works well on everyone and most notably already bribed police chiefs.

Get your kidnapper and order him to kidnap the person from the 
building. If the person is thrown out of the building and is running 
for dear life, you should be influencing the person now. But be 
careful when it comes to police stations, you could be throwing out 
THE WHOLE STATION FULL OF COPS as well as the police chief and they 
won't care if they are under your influence. They will nail or arrest 
quite quickly.


(Bank robber)

This allows you to rob banks in day light hours. Activate skill and 
walk in bank to rob. This skill works well with another gangster who 
can cracks safes as they work in a cycle day and night. Robbing a 
bank will give you plenty of cash flow (3000). Make sure you have a 
gangster that can rob banks or safe cracker as they can come useful 
in times of need. They are the only ones that can steal evidence and 
useful dirt on people at day time.


(Safe cracker)

Similar to the bank robber but they do their work at night. Works 
well in shifts with a bank robber. Can only steal dirt to persuade at 
night.


(Spying)

A mostly redundant skill. But it can come with its uses. Any business 
you spy in will allow you to see its cash flow and some more personal 
details. Some levels will require you to find dirt and the only way 
you'll get this dirt is by spying on illegal sites, discovering it, getting 
someone to steal it and return it. The spy is extremely useful on the last 
level as this can provide a lot of help in the fight against the murderers of 
your father.



/////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////


[The opponents]

During your travels you'll come up against numerous enemies. Some are 
natural enemies and should be dealt with in the harshest manner. 
Whilst others are only threatening when you do something they don't 
like (also should be dealt with in the harshest manner). Here is what 
you're up against.


(Other gangsters)
Vary in skills and quality. As long as its not from 
your allies, terminate with discrimination. Sod which enemy gang it 
came from, you're going to kill them all anyway.


(Specialist and illegal site workers)
They don't cause problems. Every time you throw them out they'll just 
flee and get blown to pieces. As for the illegal site workers, rarely 
do they fight back. Kill them indiscriminately as well as less cash 
would be generated.


(Police) 
Has the same skills as muscles (2 stars in fighting and 
stealth). Carry pistols. Can harass you if you're wanted or causing 
trouble so its best to just shoot any opposing police till they're on 
your side. Any Police that's under your influence will help you in a 
fight as well. Which sometimes a help. Not that they'll last long of 
course...


(FBI) 
Depending on the difficulty their gun skill can go up to 3 
stars. They are incorruptible, carry pistols, do raids and are more 
dangerous then the police. Kill them as well. Every where you go nail 
them.


(Soldiers)
Much more dangerous then the police or the FBI. Your best 
bet is to kill them as you go along. The damage delivered from their 
rifles is painful. They are highly useful if under your influence. 
Not that they'll spend many missions helping you. They also come with 
armoured tanks that will destroy you in seconds. Best bet is to kill 
the foot soldiers and leave the tanks alone or if you really, really 
must destroy them, throw a bomb.


/////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////


[SHOPPING TACTICS]

When you're able to buy guns, always issue all members with Tommy 
guns. They are cheap and can waste massive groups of people quite 
quickly. Ignore silenced pistols and twin packs. They are absolute 
rubbish and no good in fights.

When you're able to buy cars, buy roadsters or armoured cars. Only if 
you're desperate will you need a sedan. An armoured car with a 
gangster with full muscle with Tommy guns can easily take on 
gangsters with the same kit but in a roadster quite easily one after 
the other and maybe both at the same time.

Right from the start, sell any unwanted cars like trucks and any spare
sedans. The one roadster is more then adequate at the start and the
cash generated from the sold cars will hopefully keep you going for
several more days or go towards buying your first armoured car.


/////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////



[BUSINESS, BRIBERY, PERSUASION AND CASH FLOW]

Set up all your illegal businesses as soon as you claim them. Also 
try and monitor any places that the rival gangs trash, as they will 
always go for these places. Giving you a idea where to defend and 
where to nail as many of their gangsters as you can. However, if theres
no alcohol, most illegal businesses will generate no money 
(like speakeasys) or half the amount thanks to jeff for the details.


Need a boost in cash? Try stealing cars from rival gangs and selling 
them. Some of them will sometimes drive outside your base, park them 
and go wandering off somewhere. Don't worry about your cars, they 
don't bother stealing your cars and the most they would do is steal 
back their own.


If you want to take over businesses without trashing them order your 
gangster to take the building. But when he/ she says something that 
will mean they trash the place (like wrecking time! Or let's trash 
this place). Instantly tell them to get out of the building and then 
walk back in and claim the place. The shop will be instantly be yours 
and function without problems. As for illegal businesses, kill the 
guy who runs it and then claim the site as yours. 


Robbing banks is a very effective way of gaining cash with 0% APR. 
Remember depending on the time, only certain gangsters can rob banks. 
A safe cracker and bank robber can only rob banks but at different 
times. It's best that you use the bank robber in daylight and safe 
crackers at night. Also once it's robbed, hide in a local area and 
wait for the bank to be fixed and THEN REPEAT the process for 
unlimited cash flow!


When it comes to bribes, get a gangster who can persuade (like TUX) 
but what if someone is already bribing them? Not to worry, 
In some cases, bribery is not needed, finding dirt on anyone will 
usually bring him or her to your side. Try brothels, casinos and 
speakeasys for evidence. Never illegal businesses where products are 
made or printing of fake cash or loan sharks. Always bring a spy if 
there are missions hinting the idea that evidence can be found.

When putting a specialist into the illegal business, buy anyone from 
the newspaper, they tend to be more or less the same. But some 
special ones will come along and you should consider hiring them 
regardless if you need them or not. This prevents good manpower going 
to waste and stopping them gaining money.



/////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////



[WEAPONS]

(Pistols) 
Weak, useless at all levels. Everyone can carry one and its 
free to have. Advice is to buy a weapon as soon as possible.


(Shotgun)
Short ranged but can be deadlier then a pistol. Useful for 
early levels but when you're able to buy heavier equipment, swap it 
for the Tommy gun.


(Silenced pistol) 
Similar to the pistol only that it kills things in 
one shot. Expensive, weak when used as a standard fighting weapon. 
Avoid.

(Dual pistols)
Very hard to master, expensive and the damage isn't 
great. Ignore this weapon as well.

(Tommy guns) 
very useful. Good base damage, the fastest drawing 
weapons and should be carried around for everyday use in drive bys, 
assassination skills and general all purpose work.

(Rifle) can kill potentially in one shot. A great alternative if 
you're a bit short on Tommy guns. But not to be used as a primary 
weapon to equip all gangsters as it's slow to reload. Replace with 
Tommy guns when possible.

///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

[MOTORS]

(Sedan) 
Cheap and cheerful. Not really well armoured and should be 
used only to provide transport for gangsters on demeaning jobs. 


(Roadster) 
Fast and moderately well armoured. You'll only get a couple 
of these at the start. Always drive around at least in this type of 
car. Anything else is not worth the effort. Sell these cars when you 
can afford armoured cars.


(Armoured car)
Although slower then most cars, this car should be the 
car of choice in later levels. As its heavy armour make guarding 
muscle useless against your car. It's the only car with proper 
protection against heavier weapons from opposing gangsters. One car 
alone can destroy 2 roadsters in one go. 


(Truck) 
Unless you're trying to take a lot of gangsters from one 
place to another, there's no point in driving around in this and 
should be provided as alternative transport to more useless 
gangsters.


(Prestige car) 
Can't be bought from a shop. This car usually comes with completing 
a secondary objective. Its fast and is the only car that'll come 
anywhere near the armour capabilities of the armoured car. If you get 
one, use it.



/////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

[FIGHTS]

When targeting people on foot, try targeting the gangster in the 
middle of the pack and let the team do all the work.


If you are a gangster with assassinate skill you can resolve battles 
easily, despite being on your own. Click on the assassinate button 
and click on the gangster (or his muscle) that you want dead. The 
trick here is that normally you have to clear all the muscle before 
you can get your hands on the gangster itself. With the assassinate 
feature you target the gangster first. Once he's dead, their muscle 
will desert and go back to where they came from.


In drive by situations, you can maximise all the amount of kills 
done. When driving towards a crowd, pause the game and target the 
closest person, now unpause it and watch their colour square 
underneath their feet will vanish as you shoot them. Now pause again. 
This means muscle or gangster is dead so target some one else and 
unpause the game. Repeat process. You can nail far more people this 
way then driving in real time to nail each person.


When you see cops around and they are not under your influence, kill 
them. They will become an annoyance to you when trying to do delicate 
things or doing street fights. But this is not a permanent solution. 
At a change of light, new cops will come along and replace them, but 
I do believe there's a limit to the number of people there. Kill the 
FBI as well because they can be just as much trouble as police under 
someone else's influence.


If you are injured or your muscle looks in need of fixing, go to safe 
houses and your office till recovered. Or if you are no where near a 
safe house, just fire the weak muscle and hire new ones. Just make 
sure that you're close to a different muscle site that when doing 
this, as you'll just buy the same one if you stand near the same one 
you hired them from. Also wait a moment for them to move a fair 
distance or you would hire them again. 


When entering offices with the lead gang leader, get a bomber to 
throw a bomb into their office and clear everyone out and then kill 
the boss that runs out. Its much safer then throwing everyone out as 
you could be killed in the process.


It should be important that you do as many objectives to help other 
gangs join forces with you to save time and money fighting them. Also 
provide a safe haven for you. Also the best gangsters will come to 
you for work. It's important that you hire them quickly, as they will 
help you in your mission.


If some mission state that you can make gangsters submit by taking 
most of their land, it's probably best to follow this route of 
action. This is because you can claim the territory much more easily 
and quickly with minimum of cost to you, where as if you killed the 
gangster quickly, you'll have to buy each grey bit of land that you 
didn't claim but wanted which is costly. But remember, before the 
gang leader is about to submit I suggest you nick every stray car 
that you can before you become allies. It would be a waste of 
resources if you don't.


If mini gangs begin to spawn (because the main leader is dead and 
there were gangsters left in his gang) its wise to do drive bys to 
clear them off as they will become a pain once they are free and 
roaming. Its best you target their leader who also comes out for 
walkies. No more then 2 cars should cover these little offices that 
spring up.


Hitmen are not particularly advised unless their success rate is 
around 75 percent and above. Anyone with 90% is definitely worth a 
buy.


Apart from one level, ignore what your advisor says when it comes to 
being wanted, the police are powerless to stop you and they rarely do 
raids on your place. Even if they did, you could easily kill them 
all.


When hiding in you base, place the aggression really high so they 
will instantly begin shooting anyone who throws them out.


Unless, you're in an armoured car or you have other gangsters along 
with you, you must not fight guarding rival muscle at 2 or 3 close 
business sites as you might get killed in the process.


If possible try not to kill the muscle that patrol (the ones that 
walks around) certain areas, this muscle can be turned to your side, 
provided that you capture the district that their muscle site came 
from. Otherwise, it's pointless as there would still be plenty of 
reserves of muscle even if you killed everyone outside.


Never let muscle guard sites, you can't arm them as the enemy can on 
the last level and they can easily get over run by gangsters with 
anything better then a shot gun. Its better off that you get 
gangsters with muscle (if possible) to guard sites as gangsters are 
far better skilled then muscle and also gives them the opportunity to 
obtain better weapons to defend the site. The only reason you would want
to hire muscle to guard sites is to be alerted of any enemey activity
because of gunfire (tip from jeff). 


If you need to remove large crowds of people quickly and you're a 
bomber, throw some bombs to wipe out all/most of the enemy. You can 
also destroy tanks if you throw bombs at it.


Try not to avoid using joey or other older gangsters, they tend to be
a lot better then the later gangsters because of the experience they
accumalate over the game. You'll notice that their shooting generally
improves over time and can be quite leathal. (thanks jeff).


Another tip from jeff, he writes that hospitals are marked on the map.
Taking gangsters to these areas will heal them.

                            [LEVEL TIPS]


                        [ACT 1: RETRIBUTION]


[Episode 1: THE FIRST PAYBACK]

Town: Buffalo falls

Right, Buy the shop and get that muscle. If you have any spare 
shotguns to buy, give them to the person who is going to take the 
muscle.

You should consider waiting for the Gang leader to leave his car and 
sell off a lot of the muscle before attempting an attack. If 
possible, steal his car so he can't use it against you. Just make 
sure you've got a decent plan of escape or you'll die trying to steal 
it.

The gangsters that roam around the area that are secondary missions 
you should attempt to nail them at their sites that they explore or 
when they make their journey to or from the site. If you happen to 
steal the car and one of the gangsters is heading your direction, 
kill him. Do not attempt to kill the gang leader until all his 
gangsters are dead. If you don't, you're letting go of several 
precious points for upgrading.



[Episode 2: UNDER FIRE]

Town: Buffalo falls


Again, buy more shotguns and this time things will be a little harder 
as there's five of them in cars. You have a choice when doing this, 
either hide in a building and pick them off when they get out of 
their car or you single one after the other and send all your 
gangsters to blow away that one car. Buy all the muscle and give it 
to the best fighter.

When your new gangster arrives, put him to work. But make sure that 
he isn't in trouble, as he needs to survive for the secondary 
objective to be completed. Furthermore, this will be the best bomber 
you'll get for a long time. If he survives put him in your family 
member's selection pool.



[Episode 3: BUILDING POWER]

Town: Buffalo falls


Once you claim the brewery site, defend it. They'll send gangsters to 
reclaim it. Make sure the person guarding it gets a full set of 
muscle and the best weapons. Always keep a close eye on that place 
unless you kill the gang leader and everyone deserts.

Just one thing, if you claim the brewery, make sure that the trucks 
are around because if you claim the site before the trucks comes 
back, you're screwed. As you won't be able to complete the mission.

If you want to take out the enemy gang leader, I suggest you bring 2 
gangsters (making sure one of them is Louisiana) and throw a bomb to 
kill everyone inside the building. Once you see him coming out of the 
building make sure you concentrate all your firepower on him. Just be 
aware of the fact that if you fail to kill him when he's running out 
of the safe house, he'll become extremely frustrating to kill him 
from then on. As he'll continuously run away whilst hiring more 
muscle.

UPDATE:

I've recieved a lot of questions about this mission. Heres some answers
to the most popular ones:


1)How do i buy a specialist?

Set up your illegal business at the brewery site by bringing up the grey
box.Once set up, the site will now register as a illegal site but has
no specialist. Go to the news paper and buy one. Assign him to the illegal
site (can't remember where, try the specialist tab back at the office).
Once allocated, he'll run to the site to start work.


2) I've claimed the site and defeated the enemy. Why do i fail the mission?

Odds are the trucks needed to deliver the booze is missing. Make sure before you
claim the site, it has trucks around. Trucks that are driving away won't come
back once their site is captured. Also it must be noted, you must have enough 
time to make a delivery. So capture this site as early as possible (with the 
trucks around) and make a delivery. Ideally you'll want to do be up and running 
on the 3rd day



[Episode 4: THE CONTACT]

Town: Buffalo falls/ Elmsvile

This is very easy. All you need to do is set up the brewery as fast 
as you can. For now, bring the sedans or any roadsters and get 2 
gangsters to drive across the bridge and mow the muscle guarding 
there. Claim the sites. If you want, heal up and claim all the land 
on the right site, which is mostly empty of guards.

Again, continue to claim the sites and team up to take on cars. 
"Steamboat" will attempt to flee so therefore you need to kill him as 
you get close to his office. So the best thing is to steal all his 
cars and send one or two gangsters to wait for him to go for a walk 
and kill him.

Claiming the required sites is easy and to cut off their lines of 
alcohol, simply capture it and set one up for yourself.



[Episode 5: CAIN LANGHAM]

Town: elmsvile/ Blackwick

Set up all your illegal businesses except for the brewery and the 
dice game. As that's the entrances in which the gangsters will be 
coming from. Its recommended you hide several gangsters in the speak 
easy.

You'll be under pressure right at the start. Gangsters will begin 
roaming around in your areas and trashing them. So the plan here is 
to play a defensive game with most of the gangsters and send 2 
gangsters with cars to get claiming and remove those undesirable 
enemy gangster cars (which are poorly armed). Send those gangsters on 
different routes. Remember to give the best cars to those gangsters. 
Roadsters minimum but you can compromise with a sedan assuming the 
gangster is going up to the small village on the side.

There is an opportunity to get extra gangsters without looking for 
them in the paper. All you have to do is claim the following areas 
for them

To get "Nails" (the better of the 2 gangsters) take over the 
Department store.

To get "toothpick" take the gambling den.

Since both these sites are near each other, there is absolutely no 
reason for you not to get both of these gangsters quickly. Toothpick 
maybe some what substandard as a gangster, but you could always ask 
him to claim the sites whiles your top team go about their work of 
clearing the entrances and carve a safe corridor to "stoneface" 
Langham.

Langham will begin to flee near the end of the mission. So you better 
be ready or close by to kill him when he tries to make a break for 
it.

                            [ACT 2: INTO THE MOB]


[Episode 6: DIVIDED LOYALTIES]

Town: Oakmont


This one should be quite easy. Buy Tux bribe police chief and send 
several gangsters to hide in buildings close to the main bridge that 
that separates the 2 gangs (swap any spare ones in the office when 
those at work become weak). The attacks might not be frequent but 
they still happen and cause trouble.

Set up the illegal business in your area at the start quickly and buy 
that specialist. He's skills are invaluable when money is concerned 
in this level. Make sure he survives at all costs.

I would recommend taking on the blue gang first as he's is weaker of 
the 2 and also speed up completing the level. Also would be the 
easiest way of setting up cash. Yellow is slightly more vicious and 
should be suggested that you tackle them last and kill the gang 
leader instead of subduing him.


[Episode 7: HOLLINGTONS LYNCHPIN]

Town: Hollington

This is always been a topic of concern as many people can't do the 
first bit right. First up, buy "hands on" from the newspaper, and 
give him a set of muscle and arm him with as many Tommy guns you can 
afford possibly. Now, hire him some muscle get in the fastest car 
(i.e. the roadster) and drive to where the hostage is. Making sure to 
use the back roads or lightly guarded and clicking on a street at a 
time to avoid confrontation. By just telling "hands on" to get ot the 
site withouta specific route, he'll get into all sorts of trouble. 
(thanks jeff)

once arrived, Eliminate all guards and claim the site. The hostage will 
be thrown out, so kidnap him quickly. Once you've done this, pause the 
game and set up a hide out or safe house there and place him in there. 
Not only have you got the mayors brother safe without travelling back 
to your office, you've also created a sort of beachhead to start claiming 
Kitsen's turf.

Once you've captured the mayor's brother, be vigilant in your home 
turf, as they won't hesitate to send gangsters to trash your office 
or safe house in your area. Leave a gangster (2 muscle attachments 
should be fine) at these sites and send another gangster along with 
"hands on" to do some work now that you've got your prised prestige 
car.

Once you're ready to get kitsen you'll need to bring all but one 
gangster to one side of the path leading to his office and the other 
side with a bomber. Now here is the trick: Bring all your gangsters 
with machine guns to start some suppressing fire and whiles they are 
distracted, get your bomber to lob a bomb into the large crowd to 
finish them all off. Send any one who is injured in the battle to 
flee and hire extra gangsters if you need more covering fire.


[Episode 8: THE FARRELIS]

Town: WATERPOINT

Set up your illegal businesses, send one gangster to guard at the 
grocery store closest to the bridge leading into yellow turf and 
another by the brewery. If you start on blue or yellow, those will be 
the things they'll go for first.

It's recommended that you tackle the blue gang as he is the closest 
and easiest person close to your territory and you need some cash 
flowing soon so a sustainable base is established. Once you've 
finally defeated the blue gang, take on the next weakest, pink and 
finally yellow. For yellow, forget attempting to claim all his land, 
its far too big and time consuming. You better off just claiming land 
leading to his office and killing him.

Pink gang has a lot of cheap cars you can steal. Take all and sell 
them.

Yellow has a tasty armoured car. Provided you see it unoccupied by 
their occupants outside their turf, nick it. Never take the armoured 
car that is close in their turf, as it's not the easiest time.

In the blue gangs territory, the dice game and the grocery store next 
to pinks illegal business in MEW St. is always going to be under 
attack. Its best that you clear those areas out of any muscle and 
leave them till last.

Remember: reduce each of the gang down to 3 sides to make them submit 
to you.


[Episode 9: A FREIND IN NEED]

Town: SEARSDON

Defence of your sites is not an issue at this point. Therefore, send 
as many people out to claim sites.

The first thing we need to do is protect Flynn. He's important and 
the only person who's going to get him is the blue gang. Therefore 
you should ignore the pink one till last. Claiming sites will start 
off being a nightmare (especially near the factory area) as parking 
will be difficult and will leave you exposed. You should claim 
brothels early or as soon as you can, as they will be a problem that 
should quickly be removed. 

If a little short on cash, here is the suggested areas to claim first 
of the blue gang:

1) The industrial island leading into the brothels
2) The far right side of Alford.

Once you've got enough money for at least 2 armoured cars, head to 
their brothels and take them.

Claiming the brothels is a challenge itself, but by selling any 
unwanted cars for better ones and getting those Tommy guns should 
help you prevail. Once you claim them, buy all the specialists but 
don't set them up till later on. As these sites will be where 
constant fighting occurs (especially around the loan shark area). 

If you don't hire those specialists and you lose one of the brothels 
to blue gang (who'll sets one up again), be prepared to kill one of 
those top specialists that was once in your news paper. As they would 
be now under the payroll of the blue gang. It's just tragic to see 
such good resources going to waste.

Once you've claimed all of the blue gangs areas. Leave a gangster in 
a parked car outside his office and bleed him dry of all gangsters to 
make sure that he doesn't have the chance to trash your places or 
send people against Flynn. You might put one on both sides of the 
alleyway just in case they go in a different direction.

When blue is subdued, now is the time to send all the remaining 
gangsters to steal the cars from blue and sell them for the better 
cars (if there are no decent cars to buy, sell the sedans and keep 
the roadsters.)

When moving on to Pink, there are 2 things you can try. You can claim 
sites till you reach the desired target office and kill him or just 
drive to his office and mow the crowd outside his office and any 
other resistance. Toss bomb into office and kill gang leader If you 
intend to claim sites, don't claim the sites that have illegal 
business that are bordering the blue gangs once borderline, as he'll 
buy them. But the trick here is that you can easily claim them before 
he can put a specialist in.

"ANGEL" pops up in the newspaper once you've taken out the pink gang. 
She might not be much at first but never the less; an extra gangster 
is useful and she can be a choice to be one of the permanent 
gangsters in the game.

Once the pink gang is dead, kill blue to finish mission.


[Episode 10: THE DIE IS CAST]

Town: LANROCK


Set up all illegal sites if they're not up and running. 

There's nothing hard about this level except for the start. Its best 
you prepare for an onslaught invasion from the enemy gangsters once 
you invade their territory. First up, bribe the police chief in your 
area. Put defences in the following places:

Whore house
The brewery 
The grocery store next to the brewery.
Police station.

These areas are vital double the gangsters at the brewery and the 
whorehouse as these areas are where most fighting will occur. 

Get one gangster into a car and drive down to the third grocery store 
close to the purple gangs place. By now, all hells broken lose and 
you'll have to fight to protect your land. When the fight commences, 
don't bother trying to repair any sites until the initial assualt.

If you survive, take your gangster behind enemy territory to start 
taking each of the unguarded sites using stealth and hiding in other 
shops to dodge the gangsters that keep coming along.  The path I 
recommend is as follows:

1) The third grocery store down the main road leading to the other 
side.

2) The grocery stores on Ramsey street

3) The stores on Salford St (don't claim the illegal site just yet)

4) Grocery stores on Brown Street

5) The illegal site on Salford street (there could be heavy fighting 
here as they'll attempt to reclaim the site back again.

6) The loan shark on Biddle street.

7) Take the illegal site on Booth street (ignore the brewery if you 
want). Return to car and continue claiming land into blue gang.

At this point income should be reasonably high. If your gangster 
behind enemy lines can find another car other then the main car he 
came in on, take it. Otherwise make your way carefully back and 
continue claiming land in blues turf.

Once you've set up your operations and an armoured car is available, 
it's absolutely up to you how you complete the level. I find it more 
productive just to claim each site and kill all gang leaders. But if 
you can't be tossed, just get the store near the top.

"Speedy" in the newspaper would be useful in this level and would at 
least be a better gangster then those without special skills.

Armoured cars help a lot in this mission, as this will reduce death 
rates and allow you to take on other cars much more easily. Giving 
one to "speedy" would be wise idea.


/////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////


                       [ACT 3: OPEN INTENT]


[Episode 11: RELIGOUS ZEAL]

Town: WOLDRIDGE

The key thing you'll find is that money is a bit scarce and gangsters 
constantly harass you from somewhere. Not to worry, get one gangster 
to go and claim the sites on the left side of the map. Claim the 
sites that are relatively empty of anyone first. Keep claiming as 
many of these sites as possible. By the end of it, you should have 
enough money to support yourself (only just). Begin moving onto 
guarded sites that are on the right and slowly moving left.

Notice there's a bank in your area. Buy a safe cracker and rob the 
bank and claim the money at night. Since he's only a safe cracker, he 
would be no good at the morning as his skills are no use then. So 
keep him to do guard duty. Also arm him with a Tommy gun. This person 
will come in useful despite his lack of skill. A good member to 
choose as a permanent one.

Any idle gangsters should be used as guards and used to deter other 
gangsters from doing anything silly.

The priests are a big help here, they can provide some much needed 
cash from them. So rid them of those brothels and once you've done it 
for one priest and get your free money. But beware though, once 
you've done that, the enemy will send gangsters against him and will 
need protection around the clock at times. Since there are 4 of them, 
there isn't much chance of protecting all of them. So if one dies, 
just set up illegal businesses in that area. But setting up any 
illegal businesses when the priests are still alive will cut off 
funding from them and the FBI and police raiding areas.

When guarding the priests, choose those that are the closest to enemy 
territory. The others will have to wait. Once you've claimed enough 
land, find choke points to guard instead. The best strategy really to 
protect them is to claim the areas leading to the main road to the 
north side and holding it to stop gangsters and then just wipe clean 
the other gangsters till around. But the bridge will be difficult to 
guard with so many gangsters coming In.


[Episode 12: IN THE ARMY]

Town: PALFIELD

At the start of the level, hire a gangster with the assassinate skill 
and drive him close to a site next to the bank. Now be prepared, your 
territory will be over run and you won't have much hope other then to 
fight them off and claim as much land as possible to curb your loss 
of income. They every so often bring cars to attack you, nick them 
and sell them away to have a boost in cash.

The police chief will need to be eliminated for extra points. 
Therefore the normal drill is required. Just throw a bomb into the 
police station and bribe the new police chief. But to be honest, by 
that time the whole thing would be close to over.

To get our target, it'll require timing and luck. Forget claiming any 
sites on the other side of town. Instead send a single armoured car 
with a fast driver skill and give him lots of muscle and drive and 
park close to where he parks his car. The trick here is to kill him 
when he's going towards the casino or leaving it. This is no simple 
feat.

The other strategy is to rob the illegal site he keeps going to. But 
be warned, its heavily guarded and the tanks make their rounds often 
In that section. Even if you did steal it. Getting it back could be 
just as difficult.

Those soldiers can pack a punch and if you get caught up with some of 
them in yellow areas, kill them without hesitation. Just don't drive 
into blues turf and get caught up with the tanks.


[Episode 13: RIVER OF GOLD]

Town: THORMANSTOCK

Right from the start, Set up an illegal businesses (if they haven't 
been set up yet). Now we need muscle. The best thing would be to buy 
a store close to a muscle site. Try and find the best deal and buy 
it. One will do for now. But protect it, as it's pretty close to some 
rival turf.

Bring a spy and a robber for this mission as they come in handy. We 
can save alot of time and effort by not fighting the other smaller 
gangs and merely persuading them. We can do the same with the police. 
You need spy and rob the following blue gangs places:

The speak easy by the river 
The casino by the river

To convert the police raid the following areas:

The dice game
The brothel
The Cardsharp
The gambling den

If you're mean, or in need of cash, there is nothing wrong by 
claiming the lands of the 2 gangs that could be allies just to get to 
the sites to convert them. Just make sure you don't wipe them out.

Its worth while to claim all the breweries first and then kill the 
enemy gang leader as "SWEETHEART" is a gangster with Multi skills 
(Fast driver and bomber skills) can be found in the newspaper. It's 
highly suggested that you hire her and keep her as a permanent member 
of your team. She might not be any good, now that the missions almost 
over, but never the less, kit her out with all those Tommy guns (or 
the best you can) for the next mission.

A recommended tactic when claiming the breweries and distillers is to 
park close to the office and shoot all the guards that come out of 
the office until nobody is left to stop you. But if you're short on 
time, leave cars to block all escape routes whiles other gangsters 
claim all the areas. Move in on the gang leader later.


[Episode 14:THE GATEWAY]

Town: FENTON

Time to take out "tornado" shank. Again, be prepared for assaults on 
your area, as they will continue non-stop until you curb the other 
gangsters.

Since the FBI has a shoot to kill policy, impose one of your own on 
the FBI.

As if killing the FBI wasn't enough of an incentive, if you kill the 
FBI commissioner (complete second objective) you get a prestige car. 
So do this early and you could be driving around in something faster 
or similar to an armoured car. Which would make claiming sites easier 
and cheaper cutting costs on replacing muscle.

The bank will have to be your source of income near the start, as the 
businesses you have will not stay untouched for long. They will trash 
any areas with illegal businesses (especially the printing press near 
the bank) and the illegal businesses near the bottom of your turf. 
They will sometimes make a move at your office as well.

Try and protect the immediate illegal sites in your area. They 
generate a lot of money (1200 an hour).

Right from the start send gangsters to attack the enemies sites. 
Start with yellow. They are slightly closer to shank. As soon as the 
prestige car is up on offer, send another gangster, this time to 
blue. Anyone else still around, makes them useful by doing guard 
duty. Try and swap roles during runs. If the current gangster needs 
healing, send some one to replace him and use the injured gangster as 
a guard. Assassins make great guards.


[Episode 15: INTO THE HEARTLAND]

Town: BAYLINGTON

This level is one of the most annoying levels there could be. First 
up, bring a gangster with the skill to persuade into blue gang's area 
and persuade the courts to set their gang leader free. This has to be 
done with some care and speed, as the muscle on the way will shoot 
you and it could go horribly wrong if there's a slip up.

Don't bother trying to claim the blue gangs lands, they'll claim them 
back just as quickly as you took them and you could take considerable 
beatings before the battle has finished. But once you've got his 
alliance go and get a cheap bank robber or safe cracker and go to the 
bank in his area. Provide this gangster a sedan and park outside the 
bank and when he is able to take money, do so. When he can't just 
wait outside till he can. Repeat process for some income. You could 
also use the blue gang's area used for launching attacks into the 
yellow gang's deeper territory.

Buy a gangster and arm this person with a shotgun and hide in a 
grocery store that's leading into the yellow gang's area. It helps as 
the yellow gang brings in a couple of gangsters to trash your sites 
every so often and when you least expect it. They could trash almost 
everything if you're not quick enough to kill them. Reason for the 
shotgun? That's only to scare them away and nothing more.

The central area where the yellow gang and your borders meet up can 
be a problem. As there is an armoured car that patrols up and down 
that road and he'll come every so often to drive in your areas and 
could nail specialists going to work.

If you take the card sharp and set a business up, buy the top 
specialist in that level. Just make sure he gets there safely as a 
roaming car killed my specialist when I played it.

Set up the casino as well. This area is highly desirable.

The yellow gang doesn't have to be killed if you want to complete the 
mission, as there's simply far too much to take. So the plan is to 
take as much land leading to the site and stay in an isolated area 
and wait for them. Bring a lot of gangsters when doing this as they 
will get away and things get hot when they get back in their cars. 
When they are out their cars nail them quickly and everyone should 
have armoured cars to ensure that we can out weigh the odds. If one 
arrives or something, wait for him to park his car and nail him. If 
that's not possible, kill that person in their car and wait for the 
other one if the other ones late.

If both of them are inside the Casino, park your armoured cars in 
front of their cars or close by them and Wait and kill them. If you 
have assassins or spare gangsters, bring them close to the entrance 
of the casino and make sure they are looking at the doorways at all 
times and if you have a bomber handy throw a bomb into the casino and 
kill them all. Just make sure your people are no where near it when 
this happens or you'll wipe out your own men.

Alternatively, if you're going for style and time isn't an issue, You 
could rig the target gangster's bullet proof cars with a bomb. Just 
make sure that when they get into the car, they all die.

/////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////


                    [ACT 4: LEVELING THE SCORE]


[Episode 16: YORKDALE DOCKS]

Town: YORKDALE

First up, start claiming land from the blue gang. Make a note of all 
the businesses that receive frequent attacks and place armed guard. 
You should destroy the blue gang before doing anything else.

From there on, it's up to you how you could finish the mission. It 
would be faster to actually take on yellow and wipe him clean. The 
speakeasies aren't really worth setting up, as they need booze to 
generate real income. Which we don't have at this stage.

You might want to start on all the other gangs as well. If you want 
to actually make sure that your trucks are able to make a shipment of 
alcohol out of town, you might need to create a safe passage. That 
would probably mean clearing a lot of land. 

You could save money by stealing the brown gangs armoured cars and 
using them for your cause. Just remember that you only have one shot 
at this and what you get in the first snatch is what you get and they 
will wage war on you soon after. The blue gang has a bulletproof car. 

There's a gangster in the newspaper that has lots of good skills but 
he's absolutely rubbish in all areas. Hire him/ her near the end of 
the level as he'll be invaluable asset to the team.

When doing your attack into the island, bring all gangsters with 
armoured cars and muscle to attack one of the entrances. The key 
threat in this area are the roaming armoured cars so gang up on them 
and if none of the cars round the pack can't take pot shots at the 
armoured car, shoot the muscle that comes running down to shoot at 
you. Switch targets when your gangster is able to shoot at the 
armoured car. Don't drive too deep into enemy territory at the start 
or you'll be wiped out quite easily.

If you are able to get to the purple gang leaders office, have no 
regrets to send several armoured cars with full muscle and Tommy guns 
to wipe them clean. There are plenty of potential gangsters who could 
leave the office to take back what you so badly worked for. Restrict 
them to guarding their office. You could throw a bomb into the office 
but the rate that they throw out gangsters to guard the office is far 
too quick to make the task easy. Do not kill the gang leader until a 
shipment has been made and all the other objectives are met.

[Episode 17: THE BOOKKEEPER]

Town: LENCHINGTON

It seems pointless to say it now but its recommended that you bring 2 
kidnappers or at least one into the level (Make sure they have decent 
guns) all action in this level must not be done by the kidnapper, we 
need their wanted levels low. Therefore, all fighting and guarding 
will have to be done by someone else. Use them only to kidnap key 
people and nothing more. But if he's become wanted or you have 2 by 
all means use one of them to kill. 

 This one will require not only speed, but also a lot of brutal 
frontline action. The bookkeeper is the main concern here. Forget 
claiming all the land on the side where the bookkeeper and the FBI 
are in the town as its too time consuming. Claim all of it on your 
side and the land leading to the bookkeeper.

There are these people who are walking around with patrols of muscle 
and they hold a lot of cash. So kill everything that isn't yours. we 
need this money to buy fast cars and decent bodywork.

When kidnapping the priest, remove all the policemen outside his 
church and claim any sites surrounding the church. Then make the 
kidnap. This will prevent distractions from anybody from happening. 
But kidnapping the priest should be done early as nothing can stop a 
hitman from coming along to kill the priest. If you have the 
resources to spare or you need to heal up, go to the hideout that 
he's hanging out to heal.

If you've only got one kidnapper, then the plan might be a little 
harder. Especially if you want to do all objectives, so here's the 
plan, since you've only got one and he's going to get wanted by 
taking the priest or the accountant, you might as well send him out 
to do some work. Kidnap the priest and take him back home for safety. 
Kidnap the bookkeeper and take him back home. You can't walk into the 
FBI place easily as you're wanted. So get yourself arrested and when 
he's not wanted and is travelling to court, ambush the truck and get 
him out. Make sure he can get back and take the bookkeeper out of the 
hide out (buy him some weapons as well he'll need to replace them) 
and send him into the FBI place. To make things easier get a fast 
driver speed things up and not get wanted on the way getting into the 
FBI place.

When sending your gangster with the bookkeeper into the FBI, clear 
all surrounding areas with muscle, we don't want any screw-ups 
because of your gangster's aggression, love of fighting or enemy 
gangsters harassing you. Keep cars on roads to make sure they can 
guard the area and ensure your gangster can get to the FBI 
peacefully.


[UPDATE]: Cristian Mateos Provides an alternate strategy to handing the book 
keeper with just one kidnapper. Before entering the FBI building, get a bomber 
to throw 2 bombs into the FBI building. It will kill everyone inside and reduce 
the site to nothing more then an empty building. No one will be alive to arrest 
the gangster as you stroll in and presumably put him into the holding cell 
yourself. 



[Episode 18: AN EYE FOR AN EYE]

Town: ALEXANDRIA

There's going to be massive assault on your land by numerous 
gangsters, so bring all gangsters and pack as many of them into cars 
(especially fast drivers). A bomber, assassins and anyone left over 
should go on foot, as we need their abilities and all the manpower we 
can get. To curb numbers. Send the gangsters in cars first 
(Especially those who have full muscle hired) and distract the crowd 
that comes down the road (If anyone is hurt or down to one or two 
muscle drive away). Now bring the ones on foot. The Assassin 
targeting any gangsters that are highly dangerous, running up the 
road or the cars aren't shooting. Now bring the bomber to throw a 
bomb into the crowd and kill them all. Once that's sorted bring any 
healthy gangsters in cars to mop up the last remaining gangsters that 
have dispersed.

You'll notice that there is an empty plot in your area, don't bother 
with it, its not yours and you can't get at it. It's for Flynn who is 
trying to flee his area, which should get over run.

Flynn will need your help getting away. So an armed escort or a 
buffer zone created should be useful. The cops in his area aren't 
under his influence. Either kill the ones on foot or bribe the police 
chief there. But be warned you could be throwing out a lot of people.

Once Flynn gets to safety, "FLAMES" will be in the newspaper. He is 
highly useful as he has both Bomber and assassination skill and they 
both come in handy for the next 2 levels. Keep him as one of your 
permanent members.

There are some warehouses full of all sorts of goods, so bring a 
robber (of any kind) into the level. He'll be able to steal the items 
in the warehouse and the evidence to convince the judge and DA. Just 
make sure you rob the place before you claim it.

The rogue gang won't be much a threat, but as a secondary objective, 
you might as well kill him. Also notice that this gang has only a 
couple of cars. Which include 2 armoured cars as well. With this in 
mind, save money by stealing their armoured cars and selling off the 
other cars that might be hanging around.

Once you're strong enough and stable to buy armoured cars (or you've 
stolen some) and the big weapons, split your gangsters in half and 
tell them to go in different directions to gain ground and removing 
the undesirable gang leaders. Make sure you've got a gangster with a 
bomber skill in each of the groups. It won't hurt at this point to 
buy more people to help, as this would make the killing spree even 
faster.

Kill the impostor priest in the level with a Hitmen. So do this near 
the end of the level when you've got the cash to spend. Another gamer 
has told me that its possible to throw a bomb at him when he's 
running to his home.

Killing Constantine's father is easy enough (provided you've 
destroyed everyone surrounding his areas and killed all the gang 
leaders), just kill the gangsters guarding his site. Bring 2 
gangsters (making sure one of them is a bomber) hide one round the 
corner to cut off his escape and use the other to throw a bomb 
through his window killing everyone except Constantine's father. When 
he's outside, shoot him down like a dog that he is and complete 
mission.

[Episode 19: THE FURY]

Town: WRATHLINGTON


A nasty and very time consuming level. The main issues here are the 
gangsters that guard each site as well as the muscle there and the 
large pack of assassins/gangsters that attack from the main road on 
the Right of your area near the start of the level. Bring all 
gangsters you can spare and all assassins to wait for them to come 
along the main road and set up the illegal site to get some income.

It is highly suggested that you use assassins as they are very useful 
in claiming sites or you'll take serious beatings trying to relieve 
and take sites without them. The more assassins you can get, the 
faster they claim land before the enemy assassins begin to come 
along. I REPEAT: ASSASSINS ARE A MUST IN THIS LEVEL!!

Here's how we counter the first assault. The Assassins should stand 
near the front of the force. Separate a gangster to keep on the 
pavement on the top. Have the rest standing at the lower half of the 
pavement, as this is where the onslaught will begin. Use the 
assassinate button on all the gangsters. All useless gangsters should 
provide suppressing fire. One side is cleared, make them join the 
rest of the fray. Any gangsters that are low on muscle should run 
away. Using other gangsters and assassins as covering fire.

The tip here to clear any enemy sites is to assassinate the gangster 
guarding the site that's standing with the ordinary muscle that's 
usually guarding these sites and then leg it. That will remove the 
threat of the gangster and his Tommy gun welding muscle. Dodge any 
patrolling muscle is useful tactic so that they don't hinder escape. 
But to do this, you need to have good timing. If you need help to 
escape try hiding in buildings. Once they have been sorted, just mow 
down the muscle guarding it and walk in and claim the site. The 
guarding muscle shouldn't really put too many beating into your 
gangster (provided he has some muscle to accompany him) as you'll hit 
them first before they hit you.

Once you reach their office, make sure you have the whole force of 
gangsters in armoured cars (Buy more cars and gangsters if you have 
to!) and full muscle to begin to assault it. As one person gets weak 
take them out and make sure you can park and stock up on muscle. 
Continue till crowd is destroyed or only a few remain (Always give 
each gangster a target. If one person from the crowd dies, tell them 
to switch to another target quickly). You need this amount of people 
to clear the front entrance of the base because they will send people 
out very quickly to protect the office. You could just throw a bomb 
at the crowd and then retire so that it makes the job easier, but the 
bomber on his own will be killed and you run the risk of going up in 
smokes if you let your cars provide covering fire. NOTE: YOU DON'T 
HAVE TO ATTEMPT TO TAKE THE OFFICE BUT THE POINT IS THAT IT OBVIOUSLY 
WOULD HELP IN THE LONG TERM.

After they spawn out at a lower rate (a couple at a time), It's 
important that you leave several gangsters with full muscle and 
armoured cars to clear the entrance of their office as that is still 
active to send out gangsters to harass or guard the office. If you 
are able to plug up the surge of gangsters from here, the chances are 
your sites would be much safer. Remember to swap people doing this 
job so those on duty can heal. Hire extra gangsters if you have to 
just to stop this surge of people. Don't forget this is a real 
challenge and it won't be easy all the way.

If the office is absolutely run dry of gangsters, send in a weak 
gangster to throw out all the specialists and kill them all! (this is 
not only entertaining but helps weaker gangsters to improve killing 
people).

The police chiefs will have to be kidnapped to be persuaded. A 
charmer would be arrested before anything could happen. Make sure 
that you have cleared the outside of the office and saved your 
progress or things can get messy, as there's always (although not 
often) a chance that your kidnapper will throw all the police out as 
well as the police chief and pay dearly for it.

There's a particular gangster with assassination skill and fast 
driver skill. Buy him and get him to do some work like claiming 
sites. He should also be given the treat of killing all those 
specialists.

If you are able to kill the special gangster in the secondary 
objective, there's a Hitman you can buy. Depending on your situation 
you can instantly hire him and tell him to kill the gang leader. 
He'll always be successful when doing this, or you can just tell him 
to kill right at the last moment when all sites except his safe house 
and office are left or once you've done all objectives except to kill 
the gang leader.


[Episode 20: END OF THE LINE]

Town: New temperance 

There are several things you must do first. Bring all your gangsters 
to that little side entrance close to the factories. There will 
always be people coming down that pathway. Bring all assassins and 
any spare gangsters who aren't doing anything. You must always keep 
watch of this area as your gangsters can't react as early as you can 
and also they might run across the street to claim those sites and 
they could be killed by the nasty armoured car. Do not relieve most 
of these gangsters unless you've got resources to claim the road on 
the opposite side (or you need to heal people). Once that side of the 
bridge is claimed, leave a car to patrol there whiles any other 
gangsters need to heal or buy a new car to join the claiming.

One gangster in a roadster at the start, the cars you have at the 
start are important to transport injured people away from the pathway 
that most of the gangsters will be guarding. Claim one site at a time 
and if possible heal up after each muscle you kill, as those muscle 
with Tommy guns will blow your men to pieces. Its best to give the 
claiming sites job to the spy, as the person can spy on illegal sites 
whiles they claim them it'll bring up dirt that can provide you very 
important info to help you (In this level there's a lot of dirt to be 
found). Oh, and don't claim the speakeasy close to the mayors office, 
there's stuff we need to nick there when you discover it. As soon as 
you are able to afford a armoured car, get one continue the claiming 
(sell the current car if you have to)

If you discover the information and stolen it and given it to the 
proper people, Constantine will flee. As a result, he'll lose power 
over the army and the threat of the army is destroyed. However, that 
would mean that you have to take on the new objectives crippling any 
chances of you actually making a quick finish in this game.

The sooner you can get the army to switch sides before you claim the 
other half of new temperance (where Constantine's office is located), 
the easier it'll be to claim their sites.

The 2 gang leaders out of town will decline Constantine's offer if 
certain parts of their land have been taken. Therefore, claiming land 
should be done as quickly as possible. Its quite easy to claim the 
first gang leaders proposed areas, but the second one may require a 
little planning. But if you're too late to stop him arriving, not to 
worry, as he'll still not be quite established and therefore he can 
be contained. Send a load of cars to park outside his office and kill 
his gangsters and the gang leader as well (throw a bomb into office 
and kill him when he flees)

The FBI will constantly raid this one certain area, claim the site 
but by all means don't set up illegal business there. 

When you've got a lot of land and close to claiming half of the city 
(which results in both gangsters leaving), you could try to send in 
lots of fast gangsters to do drive bys when Constantine goes out to 
meet the gang leader bosses. But it's highly risky and the point 
score will look very ugly when you do it.

The police and priests are under Constantine's influence. As 
mentioned, they pose a threat to you so we need them persuaded and we 
need to do this the quickest way we know: Kidnapping them and when 
they run away, they'll be under your influence.

The island with the priest is worth helping, as that tiny area will 
convert to your side once you begin claiming parts of his land. This 
will save you time to claim each site. But if he dies or you doing 
something he doesn't like then the sites will revert back to 
Constantine.

If Constantine escapes, new objectives have been set. Forget claiming 
the other half of town, which hasn't got the 2 buildings as its now 
pointless to do so. Once you've taken them, its time to move onto the 
final battle with Constantine...

[New temperance prt2]

Finally, if you don't manage to kill him in the city, you'll have to 
kill him here. Buy all the cars and fit the fastest drivers and Joey 
Bane in them. Now head out to his site (anyone who hasn't got a car 
should set off on foot and clear all the gangsters or muscle around), 
Constantine is at the back of the casino with 2 muscle. Drive past 
the gangsters at the front Nail the first muscle to make Constantine 
ignore his armoured car and begin running down. Drive away and leave 
the rest of the cars to nail the other people or converge on 
Constantine (if you want the first gangster could carry on fighting 
till they die but it's not nice). Remember that this guy can take a 
lot of beatings so the more people with Tommy guns shooting at him 
the better. Once he's dead the mission's over and you own the state. 
Admire your empire.
