Here you will find hints, tips and cheats to help you get the most out of Mob Wars on Facebook and MySpace.
Mob Wars Information
Mob Wars is a very simple game played on both Facebook and MySpace. It's a free game, and it is indeed highly addictive. There are no fancy graphics to be seen, so it in no way competes with any game that might be released on a console, or for PC. It is more of a social-RPG where you play a mob boss and the goal is to take over the city, and to take out rival mobsters.
In reality, its a numbers based game. But who can resist the allure of being a mobster and performing hits on other mobsters and mob gangs? If you have no clue about Mob Wars then take a look at the official Mob Wars web sites listed just below (on Facebook and MySpace respectively).
The following hints and tips should be useful to you, especially if you've just begun the game. If you're well into the game then I will offer some more tips and resources a bit later in the article... such as a Mob Wars calculator that will tell you what properties would be your best investment for where you currently are within the game.
In addition to my hints and tips, feel free to take a look at user submitted hints and tips right here: More Mob Wars Hints, you can also add your own Mob Wars hints on that page!
Choose Your Mob Wars Boss Style
At the beginning of the game you are offered a choice of different mobster profiles; Tycoon, Insomniac, or Bulletproof. Each of these three different mobster styles will earn one key area faster. Here is the break-down.
A Tycoon mobster boss generates money faster. So basically the profit a Tycoon makes from owned properties will be generated at a faster rate, I believe it is every 55 seconds instead of every 60 seconds. Depending on how you play the game, this may not really make such a huge difference, since that boils down to two additional payouts per day. Your call there.
An Insomniac mobster boss will recover Energy faster, allowing you to complete more jobs quicker. In the early stages this would be good so you can gain experience and cash from performing jobs more frequently. In the later stages it serves the same purpose, but mainly to rake in the cash from big jobs and to acquire special 'loot' or 'drop' items from doing certain missions over and over. These missions will be detailed later in the article.
The Bulletproof mobster boss will regenerate health more quickly than the other two mobster styles. Health becomes a factor when you are doing a battle, or being attacked, or when you have been put on the hitlist.
My personal preference is the Insomniac, since you'll be able to perform jobs more frequently, which means more cash and more experience throughout the entire game.
Mob Wars Boss Stats
Now lets take a look at your Mob Wars boss' stats, which will be upgraded every time you level up (which happens pretty quickly early on). Here are the stat areas taken directly from the game itself:
Attack points make your mob more effective when attacking other mobs.
Defense points make your mob more effective at defending against attacks.
Increase your energy capacity to complete more jobs and other actions.
Increase your max health to better survive intense fights.
Increase your stamina to fight more often. 2 skill points needed for increase!
As you can see there are five possible areas you can choose to level up each time you increase a level. However, you only get three points each time you level up, so it is important to choose wisely, especially early on in the game.
Tip: Easy on the Stamina
A lot of mobsters make the mistake of choosing to level up their Max Stamina early on in the game. If you're just starting out do not make this mistake. First off, it costs two points to level it just one time. Secondly, it regenerates so quickly that you'll seldom see the need to level it all that much, even in the later stages of the game. Of course, once you've raised to the higher levels you'll have plenty of points to spend as you see fit to your style of play. If you notice that you are the type that enjoys fighting all of the time then you may consider boosting your Max Stamina. At level 64 I find that 11 or 12 Stamina is sufficient.
Tip: Heavy on the Energy
As I've stated previously, increasing your Max Energy will allow you to perform more jobs more frequently. More jobs equals more money and more experience quicker. Keep this in mind when deciding where to place those points.
Tip: Max Health Isn't Important Until Later
Alright, I'm not saying to completely ignore your Max Health when levelling... just remember that when you go into the hospital (which happens more times than death) you cannot be attacked. So technically, having a low Health score early on will save you from dying, and dying makes you lose those hard earned experience points.
Tip: Attack Strength and Defense Strength
Attack and Defense Strength go hand in hand in Mob Wars. If you are attacking a rival Mob Wars member, or being attacked, the game uses these numbers (along with your inventory and mob size) to calculate how much damage is dealt to each mob in the fight. While it may seem important to have these numbers as high as possible, having the right equipment can compensate for a low Attack or Defense stat, at least in the majority of the cases.
Next lets take a look at the City in Mob Wars, this is where you will be staking your claim and buying up properties.
