How to Grow Your Mafia and Increase Family Size in Mafia Wars for Myspace

Why Have a Large Mafia?

If you play Myspace Mafia Wars then you realize how important it is to have a large mob. Your mob will help you with the missions and any combat situations that may occur within the game. Within this article on Myspace Mafia Wars, I’m going to point out why a large mafia is needed, and how you can get it.

Myspace Mafia Wars Members

In Myspace Mafia Wars, your very survival depends on your family if you are going to fight or become a hit man within the game. Also on the higher levels, you need to have an increasing number of members so you can do the missions so it is very important that you begin increasing the number of people in your gang. Build your mob early, so that you have them when you need them for the upper levels.

You can build your mob by joining trains. Just Google the term ‘ Myspace Mafia Wars train’ and you will find plenty of places where you can expand members within your gang. I do not recommend getting into trains that cost you money, as there are plenty of free ones out there.


You can fight within Myspace Mafia Wars. As you fight your mob fights with you, and it’s the same way on the other side. You may choose to fight with one person, but their gang also fights with them. This is why it is essential that you get as many people into your gang as you can possibly have.

While your mob is small, you can usually afford to equip them but as the cost of equipment goes upward, you’re going to need more income to purchase these items. That is why you need to build up your properties to get that passive income flowing in on an hourly basis.

Fighting will lower your health level. Therefore, you need to have a little bit of money in your bank account to be prepared for such emergencies. Keeping 100,000 or so as a balance in your bank account will allow you to heal, if needed.

Hit List on Myspace Mafia Wars

The hit list is where you can perform hits. If you fight a player who is on the hit list and win you get to collect the bounty. Usually, the players who are on this hit list are armed to the hilt so don’t let that big bounty prize entice you into making a stupid move. Your gang will fight with you, but the same also goes for your opponent.

Most of the time, all you will succeed in doing is losing the cash in your hand and giving them experience points for beating your butt. I wouldn’t recommend fighting anybody off the Myspace Mafia Wars hit list – it is a waste of money.

If someone has attacked your character, you may put them on the hit list, but this will take some of your money and stamina for a little revenge. This brings to my mind the old saying, ‘a fool and his money are soon parted.’

Upgrades are the Skill Points

Every time you increase a level, you are given skill points to pass around. You can put them on attack, defense, health, energy, or stamina. The equipment you buy will help with attack and defense and you can use the hospital to be healed so don’t use your skill points here. Instead, put them on energy, so that you can do more missions to earn more cash.


As I’ve said before, if you play it smart, purchase the property to get that good passive income coming in hourly you will become the top Mafia boss. I would not recommend fighting, or using the hit list, as both are a waste of money, time, and energy on Myspace Mafia Wars. Grow your mob huge and it will help you in every aspect of the game.
