Mafia Wars is probably one of the best online games I've played for a while now. It's fun, simple, and extremely exciting. In this article, I will talk more about how to get more bodyguards in Mafia Wars.
Why You Really Need More Bodyguards
Like many other rare loot items, bodyguards are required for you to complete jobs in the later stage of the game. You will need at least 2 bodyguards to finish a job in Capo tier (level 25 - 34).
So that's the first reason why you need bodyguards. The second and biggest reason you need bodyguards in your inventory is because you need them to boost up your defense. Just like in many sports, winning more fights in Mafia Wars depends on how strong your defense is. For this reason, if you have a lot of bodyguards you will be able to win more fights than you are right now.
Getting More Bodyguards in Mafia Wars
You can get bodyguards in the game by completing the job "Protect Your City Against A Rival Family" in the Hitman stage. It comes as a random loot item so keep trying until you get what you need. There are also other ways to get bodyguards:
1. Get from other players as a gift.
Here's one of the biggest reasons why I recommend all future Top Godfathers to recruit high level players. They have so many useful loot items that they can give you. This directly adds up your family's strength and power. Remember, reciprocity is also one of the biggest keys to winning the game. Don't remember to help out or give back to those who've helped you in the game.
2. Random Loot Items During Fights
Yes, you can get Bodyguards as a random dropped item in fights. I absolutely do not advise people to concentrate on fighting in the initial stages of the game. Here's why. When you fight so frequently, the game's system will show your name on the Fight List most of the time. This means you can probably get robbed, snuffed and knocked out by other players who are more powerful and experienced than you. To advance in Mafia Wars further and faster, build your energy points using Skill Points and concentrate on recruiting active players who play every day.
Before you know it, you will join the ranks of the top players in Mafia Wars. All the respect and honor given by your followers, peers, and most importantly rivals will without a doubt give you a sense of accomplishment.
