Earn this achievement by fully upgrading all Cuban Businesses. This one might take some time since cash is not as plentiful in Cuba as it is in New York. Keep playing and it will happen though.
You can earn this achievement by owning 50 Federal Agents. Federal Agents are loot that can be obtained by completing the “Buy Off a Federal Agent” job in the New York Boss Tier.
Win 100 fights in a row. This is a trivial achievement and easily accomplished, especially if you have a copy of my Ultimate Mafia Wars Leveling Guide.
If you like fighting other players and gang wars this achievement will be fairly easy to earn. To earn Veteran status you must participate in 500 wars.
What Else You Got?
Master all New York tiers to earn this achievement.
What’s After Trillion
This is hands down the hardest monetary achievement in Mafia Wars so far. To get it you need to deposit $999 Trillion dollars into the bank in one deposit. The amount will need to be after bank fees so you will need to deposit $999,999,999,999,999 to get it.
Help out 10 friends to earn the Wing Man achievement. Keep any eye out for requests for help and you will earn this one very quickly.
Working Man is a quick achievement to earn. All you need to do is complete 20 jobs in one day and should happen very quickly. This is most likely the first achievement that you will earn when playing Mafia Wars.
Earn this achievement by completing 100 jobs using your cell phone and Mafia Wars Mobile. To get this achievement you must play on your cell phone and live in the United States.
Earn this easy achievement by venturing to Moscow for the first time. You will need to be level 70 to do this.
Set Them Up For Later
I don’t know if I would truly consider this an achievement but all you need to do is lose 10 fights in a row. It’s easy to accomplish by attacking players who are stronger than you are.
Own 30 Apartment Complexes. This was another easy to accomplish achievement but we are unsure if it is still in the game. With the new property model that has entered play it would seem that this achievement would go the way of the dinosaur.
Spreading It Around
If you have my Ultimate Mafia Wars Leveling Guide and follow the strategy to equip your character you will get this achievement very quickly, otherwise earn it by sending 501 gifts to your mafia.
The Swatdee Achievement is yet another super simple one to acquire. All you need to do to get it is gain access to Bangkok. The requirements for Bangkok are really very simple. Level 18, gathering a few items from the early New York Tiers, and getting your passport is all that is required to gain access to Bangkok and thus the achievement.
Earned by vaulting at least one Crew Collection.
Earn this achievement by gifting a diamond ring to a player that is less than level 8. You can get the diamond ring by doing jobs on the Hitman Tier of New York.
That’s With a “T”
Not one of the easiest achievements to get since you need to deposit $1 Trillion dollars in the bank at one time. This amount must be after bank fees so you will need to deposit $1,111,111,112 to get it.
The Best Offense
Defeat 6 attackers in a row to earn The Best Offense. The easiest way to do this is have a friend who is lower level and less powerful attack you until you get the achievement.
The First is the Hardest
Bank $1 Million at one time. Easy as pie achievement. As you level and progress through the game you will get this achievement without even trying. Money may be tight at first but you will quickly find that the trickle becomes a river in no time.
Defeat another player with a mafia larger than yours. Basically the Napoleon Complex Achievement is a give away. The first 10 fights that you have in the game are actually simulated fights and the outcome is determined randomly rather than by the number of mafia and quality of equipment involved. Pick on anyone you want for this achievement and don’t worry about the numbers.
Nest Egg is one of, if not the hardest achievement in the game. You need to deposit $10 Trillion dollars in the bank at one time. This amount must be after bank fees so you will need to deposit $11,111,111,112 to get it.
Earn this achievement by mastering all tiers from the Cuba expansion. Not as hard to get as you might think, just keep chipping away at Cuba and it will arrive.
No Razors Needed
Another collection related achievement. To grab this achievement you need to vault the Beards Collection in from Cuba.
Earn this achievement by mastering at least one tier in New York. Easy one to get, it will come as you level.
One Night in Bangkok
No this is not a song by Murray Head its an achievement. The achievement is part of the Bangkok expansion and is easy to earn, all you have to do is complete Episode 5A or 5B. Some people think that they have to finish both but that is not the case.
Bank $1 Billion at one time. Another easy achievement and it will be accomplished as you level through the game. Money may be tight at first but you will quickly find that the trickle becomes a river in no time.
Own 500 Town Cars. This achievement is not as hard as you might think. Money may seem to come slow at first in Mafia Wars but it grows quickly as you progress through the game. Town Cars can be purchased from the New York store at the price of $200,000 each. The total investment involved is $100 million. It seems like a lot but it really isn’t.
Pocket Rockets is another achievement that is earned by playing Zynga Poker and reaching level 3.
Real Estate Tycoon
Upgrade all New York Properties to level 100 or higher and you can call yourself a Real Estate Tycoon.
This achievement is part of the new property feature in New York. To get the achievement you must own one of each property in New York.
This is a Player vs. Player achievement. It requires that you win 1,000 fights in Cuba. If you enjoy fighting it shouldn’t take long to get this one. On the other hand if you are the type that hates fighting other players you either needed to tough it out to get the achievement or kiss it goodbye.
If you don’t have this one yet you will have to wait for Valentine’s Day. You get the achievement by mastering the Valentine’s Day job and vaulting the collection.
Master the St. Patrick’s Day job and vault the corresponding collection for Lucky Shot.

If you have my Ultimate Mafia Wars Leveling Guide and follow the strategy to equip your character you will get this achievement very quickly, otherwise earn it by sending 10 gifts to your mafia.

Hard Boiled is another really easy achievement. All that is required is that you achieve allied status with the Triad in Bangkok. Follow the Triad path in the expansion and you will find allied status fairly quickly.
Havana Hat Trick
Earning this achievement is really easy. All you have to do is master one job tier in Cuba. The easiest way to do it is just blast through the El Soldado tier until it is done.
The Hitman Achievement is earned by collecting a bounty from the hitlist. You must be the one to get the killing shot to earn the bounty.

Upgrade all New York properties to level 25 or higher and you will be a Land Baron.
Vault the Tools of the Trade Collection. This collection is one of two that became available with the new revamped robbing feature. The collection is gathered by robbing other players and is fairly easy to come by.
Sell 50 Mega Casinos. Once an easy to accomplish achievement, it is unknown if it is still in the game. With the new property model that has entered play it would seem that this achievement among others would no longer be viable. Only time will tell.
All you have to do is vault one collection to earn this achievement. Super easy one.
This achievement is earned by filling your top mafia with characters that are all over level 100. Make sure that you not only get the achievement but have the best characters in place for each spot and you will get higher bonuses.
Earn this achievement by vaulting at least nine New York collection sets.
Dead or Alive
To earn the Dead or Alive Achievement you must earn allied status with the Yakuza in Bangkok. This is really very easy. Earning allied status with either faction is easy, it gets a bit more difficult when you want to be allied with both.
If you play daily this achievement is easy to get, all you need to do is complete a job each day for 20 consecutive days.
Dependable is an easy achievement to earn; all you have to do is do one job per day for 7 consecutive days.

In this Mafia Wars Achievement Guide we will detail each achievement and their requirements. Achievements not only give you a pat on the back for doing a good job they also award a skill point for each that you can spend as you see fit.
Here are the achievements currently in Mafia Wars
Armed and Dangerous – This is a very easy achievement to earn just pick up 10 Tommy Guns. You really don’t have to work at this one since you will be buying the guns along the way since some jobs require more than 10 to be able to complete.
Banana Republic – This is a Cuba achievement and is earned by owning all 4 availabe business on the island. When you first get to Cuba you realize that the millions that you have stashed away in New York are worthless and it may seem that money is hard to come by at first. Don’t worry though you will be filthy rich in the Caribbean in no time.
Big Business – Fully upgrade a single business in Cuba to earn this achievement. Once again its not one to sweat as it will happed while you are working toward the International achievement.
Big Spender – Use reward points to earn this achievement. The easiest way is to level up and then buy “+4 Stat Points” for free or you could cough up some real world cash for them.
Bulletproof – Being wanted by the Feds, DEA, ATF or other government agencies is one thing but to have a hit put on you by the mob is another. You can earn Bulletproof by actually surviving on the hit list for over an hour.
This is probably the hardest achievement to unlock and you’ll probably have to be level 500+ and have nearly all your points in defense to be able to unlock it.
Cashing out – Earn this achievement by sell off 50 Mega Casinos. This does not have to be all at once. You can buy them one at a time and immediately resell them.
Collector – A simple and easy achievement to earn, all you have to do is vault one collection and DING…ya got it.
Crime C.E.O. - Another fairly easy one to earn. When you are setting up your top mafia you will earn this one easily because you always want to have the best people in every spot. Get all spots filled with players who are above level 100 to earn it.
Curator - Same as Collector but this time you have to vault at least 9 collections. If you get a huge mafia wars family of 5000+ you should have no trouble getting this as as soon as you share your wishlist it’ll be filled in seconds.
Dependable – It cant get much easier than this, all you have to do is complete a job per day for 7 days.
Getting the Crew Together – Once again Mafia Wars on easy mode, just promote friends to each top mafia position.

Mercenary – Help out 200 friends that call for backup. Just keep an eye on notifications and as soon as you see someone asking for help click away.
My Little Friend - Gift an M16A1 to a friend. Just keep doing “Transport a Shipment of US Arms” job in Cuba, it is on the El Capitan tier. Then send it off to a friend.
Napoleon Complex – Beat someone who has a bigger mafia than you do. Try doing this when you are very young. Someone who has 2 mafia when its just you are not that much tougher than you are.
Nest Egg – Deposit $10,000,000,000,000. This is the hardest achievement that there is right now. It takes a long time to earn that much cash, even for Donald Trum
One Down – Easy, just finish one stage of jobs in New York.
Personal Bailout – Deposit $1 Billion to earn this one.
Personal Fleet – Earned by owning 500 Town Cars. You should never need this many town cars so the easiest way get this is just to buy them then sell them off as soon as you can replace them with better vehicles.
Slum Lord – Buy up 30 apartment complexes
Spreading it Around – Gift 501 items to your gang. This one isn’t hard but it does take some time to find that much stuff to hand out. The easiest way to do this is simply give away all your low level handguns / knives etc that you acquired in the early stages of new york to random people in your mafia family. Then if thats not quite enough give away some of your spare low level collection pieces to your family. You should have this unlocked in under an hour.
That’s Amore – Send a diamond ring to a player that is under level 8. Just sending it to an alt should suffice. If you’ve read the mafia wars black book you’ll probably already have 2 low level alts to give this to.
That’s with a “T” – Earned by depositing $1,000,000,000,000 and is the second most difficult achievement to get simply because it takes time to build up that kind of cash.
The Best Offense – Defeat 15 attackers in a row to earn this achievement. The easiest way to get this one is to have a buddy that is weaker than you are attack you until you get it.
The First is the Hardest – Earned by depositing $1,000,000. At first a million sounds like a butt load of money, but don’t worry you will have it quicker than you think.
Treasure Hunter – Earned by finding a rare item in a mystery crate Either save up reward points as you level or shell out some hard earned bucks for them. On a side note…the rare items are not that great either.
Tycoon – Fully upgrade all Cuban Businesses to become a Tycoon. Once you’ve done all the jobs in cuba you should have enough cash to complete this, if you’re powerlevelling wait until you’ve finished cuba but if you’re taking it slow the purchase and upgrade your businesses as you go.
Uncle Sam - Earned by owning 50 federal agents. You get these guys from the boss tier and “Buy off a Federal Agent”. The drop rate is not too bad but it still might take awhile to complete.
Unstoppable – Win 15 fights in a row and you will be unstoppable. Super easy again, just pick weaker targets and its yours.
What’s after Trillion? – Earned by depositing 999 Trillion Dollars. Work, work, work is all we can say. It’ll take a looong time to unlock this as very very few people have done it so far.
What else you got? – Achieved by mastering all the tiers in New York, can be done in 2 days using my mafia wars powerlevelling guide
Wing Man – Help out 10 friends who call for backup by keeping an eye on notifications and it will come before you know it.
