Please help me keep my top enforcer positions filled. NEW

I'm Sal the Foot, author of this guide. I have a full mob, but due to Facebook account issues, I don't have many friends I can post to. If you're already in my mob, please click the following links to take one of my top enforcer positions: Lab | Island | Palace. If you're not in my mob, you're welcome to send me an add request through the game. However, if it doesn't go through, please don't contact me. I don't have time to sort out such issues. Thanks for your help! These links are also in the header of this site, so you can easily click them whenever you visit this guide.

OCTOBER 2016 UPDATES:

10/20/16: New "Mugger" tool allows players who've reached level 15 in New York to run two-for-one muggings.

10/14/16: If you do Rackets, check out my new ENFORCER HIRING TOOL! Use this tool to fill all open Enforcer positions by posting just one link on your wall (rather than 8.)

SEPTEMBER 2016 UPDATES:

For the past few years, Marc Kriguer has been posting weekly updates on my Facebook page archiving complete info on limited heists. He recently compiled all this info for me in a format that allowed me to upload the last 18 months of data I was missing. (Thank you so much, Marc! I couldn't have done this update without you!)

The Limited Heist Page just got 18 months worth of heist info added and is once again complete. With all the work Marc put in helping out, I decided to do some work on the site as well! The Limited Heist Page now defaults to the current year to speed load time and it's now formated to fit any size screen. It's broken down by year, but the "ALL" option is still available.

The Stockpile Page got 100+ items added. (If you have info on any other additions or stat upgrades to other stockpile items, please post on the Corrections Thread of my STF Facebook page and I'll update the guide when I have time.)

I've added a cool new search feature to the site. It finds stockpile items by name and limited heists by title (all in one easy search). It's now at the top of every page of this guide.

The item detail page has been expanded. Now, when you click on an item picture, if the item was a drop or helper item from a limited heist, you'll see complete info on that heist including other drops for it. If it was a drop from several heists, info on all of them will be shown. [See example]

If you have any questions or suggestions for the guide, please stop by my STF Facebook page.

PAWN SHOP TRADES

Since August 2012, you can trade more than just cards in the Pawn Shop. Trade items from city heists for improved items. CLICK HERE for the Pawn Shop Page on this guide.

DC RELEASED 11/29/11 (then Rio through Baltimore added in same format)

dc
  • Here's the details:
  • There are no cards or badges. (You earn skill points by completing crime waves.)
  • There are 10 jobs, each with 25 crime waves total.
  • Crime waves for jobs must all be completed before progressing. (eg. complete all level 1 waves before moving on to level 2 waves).
  • A boss battle must be completed to progress after each crime wave.
  • Boss has no post for help.
  • After completing level 5 waves, you earn a powerful city collection item. There are 5 collection items total.
  • There are drop items, but they are not required for jobs and they do not have stats. Could possibly be used as consumables later, but for now do nothing.
  • Properties function as usual.

Mob Wars IPHONE and ANDROID APPS:

STOCKPILE UPDATE: Several stockpile items have been updated in the game. Several items that were not available for purchase now are. Check out updates to weapons, armor, and vehicles. Click the source filter and select BUY to see all the vehicles available for purchase now. A new "unlock level" column has been added showing when these items can be purchased.

I've gone over the recycled stockpile that are now available to purchase (but with a new upkeep). All of these items were former Limited Heist Drops, so no one should have more than a few of each. If you don't want to pay the upkeep, simply sell them. This should not be a big deal, but it should give players working their way up some cool new options. That was one of my favorite times in the game... moving up and deciding what to keep, what to sell, etc. Roll with it, gang. It's a pretty cool change and we would not have gotten it if we had to wait for their art department to come up with all new stuff.

los angeles

LOS ANGELES: We have a new city, including 6 properties and 5 jobs! My loot page has been updated to show all the cards given.

LOS ANGELES WINS! Here's the results of a high energy test I just did:

TOP LA: Done 3,653 times. Used 399,090 E. Gained $63.997T and 628,316 XP

TOP MEDELLIN: Done 4,286 times. Used 399,026 E. Gained $55.077T and 630,042 XP

RESULTS: Medellin gives 0.3% better XP (negligible), but LA pays 16.2% better cash!

MEDELLIN WINS! Here's the results of another high energy test I just did (without a contract in place):

TOP LA: 3653 times. Used 420095 E. Gained $58.156T and 628,316 XP

TOP MEDELLIN: 4286 times. Used 420028 E. Gained $64.353T and 630,042 XP

RESULTS: Medellin gave better cash! Due to conflicting results, more tests are needed!

FIX YOUR HALF SCREEN PROBLEMS!

If you can't see half your page and can't scroll, you're not alone. It's a Facebook problem that's been affecting many Facebook games and applications. To the right is a handy tool that should fix the problem. This is what's called a 'bookmarklet'. Don't click it here. Instead, drag and drop the green "STF HALF FIX" link onto your browser's bookmark bar. This will give you a link there titled "STF Half Fix". Then, when you run into the half page problem on Mob Wars or any other Facebook game, click the link on your bookmark bar.

NOTE: This will give you a very long page with a lot of white space below it. That is to accommodate a long stockpile page. If you wish to adjust the height, right click on your new bookmarklet and choose Properties. Look for 55000. That's the height. Change that to whatever you like. Then try clicking it again and you'll see the page with the new height.

If you dig this tool and the rest of this site, I hope you'll consider making a small donation. This site is NOT supported by Mob Wars.

CHANGES TO HEALING:

ONE CLICK HEALING: Healing has become 1-click to go to 100% health. It is now pro-rated. This means that if you only need to heal 10% of your health back, you only have to pay 10% of the healing fee. However, if you heal when your health is 100%, you will be charged the full price as a penalty. Healing from the Boss Battle page works the same way, except you will not pay to heal if you're already at 100%.

CHANGES TO THE LEADERBOARD:

LEADERBOARD is now "RANKINGS": They've implemented the Beta version that's been around for a while. You can now see where you fall in the global, friend and family ranks for 4 categories. The Top Tycoon list has been removed.

"See how you stack up against every player in the game and what it will take to move up the ranks. Global Rank is accurately recalculated every Ten Minutes; although changes in your statistics will always be reflected immediately. Only one player from each rank is displayed."

Now you see only the 10 people above you and 10 people below you. You can no longer see who is on the top of the lists. Hopefully, the ability to scroll up and down the list will be added. It's disappointing to have done 500,000,000 jobs only to have that hidden from everyone except the next 10 highest players in that category. Fortunately, you can still access the old leaderboard.

500 Million Jobs

One Half Billion Served: I was excited to have reached one half billion jobs way back on February 12, 2011.
