If you want to be a Don, you have to be prepared to crack a few skulls along the way. Training units and increasing the size of your army will help grant you victories against enemies and protect your city from harmful attacks. Each unit has a unique strength and weakness, and it's best to create a diverse army that can withstand different types of battle. Training units can also have a positive influence in respect, as stationing units at captured cityscapes can bring about amounts of Respect points, per tile (cityscape). XP can also be improved by units.

There is a limit on how many units you can have: 500 per level of Logistics research.This means there is a max of 11,000 units since Logistics can only go up to level 22 at this point. Troops also cost influence to build, which can be raised by upgrading available apartment buildings. Influence key per Apartment Level

Offensive UnitsEdit

Troops you can send into battle when attacking a rival Family or gang.

Thug (Damage)Edit

Troop thug

  • Description: Thugs are the foot soldiers of the Cosa Nostra, armed only with street smarts and handguns. Suitable for small jobs, they're often outgunned and outclassed in more serious situations.
  • Health: 111
  • Attack: 22
  • Load: 300
  • Speed: 300

Thugs are suitable units for smaller attacks, and can be a powerful force if used in good numbers and strategy. They are generally very vulnerable going against higher level foes. High level players use arsonists as a replacement for thugs, and they tend to die very easily.

Courier (Transport)Edit

Troop courier

  • Description: Swift, stealthy and with an eye for valuables, Couriers are experts at recovering assets you've "liberated" from other goombahs. The more Couriers you send, the more loot you'll be able to bring back home.
  • Health: 100
  • Attack: 1
  • Load: 2000
  • Speed: 325

Info: Couriers are a good choice for players overall, being rather inexpensive to train and maintain. They are seldom targeted or killed in conflict, despite their seemingly pathetic offensive capabilities. Wise players can often send a force of couriers as a scout force before initiating a main attack order to measure the numerical strength of their foe. They are weaker against arsonists.

Arsonist (Health)Edit

Troop arsonist

  • Description: Arsonists prefer fire to gunfire. With their love of combustion often sating a deep-seated psychological obsession, Arsonists' flames will sear flesh and ruin lives.
  • Health: 224
  • Attack: 11
  • Load: 300
  • Speed: 350

Arsonists are primairily the replacement for thugs to fill the much needed position of footsoldiers. They tend to have a better chance of survival and can better defeat foes in battle. They outclass thugs and couriers, but can be offset by Bruisers.

Bruiser (Health)Edit

Troop bruiser

  • Description: Bruisers bring a violent, hands-on approach that usually leaves a major impression on their enemies. If not scars.
  • Health: 562
  • Attack: 28
  • Load: 300
  • Speed: 575

Bruisers are troops that supplement a standing army and can have major impressions as stated in the description, on armies that use lower level troops. Bruisers are often used sparingly, and outclass hitmen and demolitionists but can be countered with sufficient numbers of arsonists.

Demolitionist (Damage)Edit

Troop demolitionist

  • Description: Demolitionists are best called in when you want to get rid of someone's wheels. Nothing takes the fight out of a car-based enemy faster than a few sticks of dynamite.
  • Health: 257
  • Attack: 51
  • Load: 300
  • Speed: 450

Demolitionists are often vital against high level foes who tend to incorporate powerful car-based units into their army. Relatively inexpensive, lower level players can hold off even Professionals and Tommy Gunners with sufficient numbers of expert bombmakers.

Delivery Truck (Transport)Edit

Troop deliverytruck

  • Description: There are hauls and then there are hauls. When you want to bring back huge amounts of loot after a major hit, there's no replacement for a convoy of Delivery Trucks.
  • Health: 800
  • Attack: 2
  • Load: 50000
  • Speed: 625

Delivery trucks can be useful to haul tons of stolen items from a major assault on a high level foe who possesses a huge number of viable resources. They are not often targeted and replace couriers on major hits.

Hitman (Balance)Edit

Troop hitman

  • Description: Hitmen do whatever it takes to get the job done, from putting a sniper bullet in some mook's eye to whacking a guy up close and personal.
  • Health: 700
  • Attack: 75
  • Load: 150
  • Speed: 650

Hitmen are reliable and powerful units that can easily sweep a moderate amount of low-level enemies. They are not often outclassed and perform well in small attacks that require just a little more than a bunch of thugs. They have the highest loads of a unit not specified to carry stolen valuables like couriers.

Enforcer (Damage)Edit

Troop enforcer

  • Description: Enforcers love the open road, and they'll always be first to call shotgun.
  • Health: 1177
  • Attack: 235
  • Load: 150
  • Speed: 825 =

= Enforcers are more hardy and tough units than Tommy Gunners and are good supporting units, greatly increasing the potential for an assault force. They are seldom killed, though more targeted.

Tommy Gunner (Health)Edit

Troop tommygunners

  • Description: Tommy Gunners favor spraying their enemies with a hail of bullets while in or near their sedans. And if a few innocent bystanders got shot up, that's just the cost of doing business.
  • Health: 2836
  • Attack: 142
  • Load: 150
  • Speed: 1000

Tommy Gunners are car-based units that can perform well against higher level units like Enforcers or Professionals. A good-sized team of Tommy Gunners, if you can maintain the cost, can be a highly feared and versatile force in your army.

Professional (Damage)Edit

Troop pro

  • Description: Professionals don't come cheap but they're worth every penny. Most at home in heavily armored cars, Pros don't back down from any job.
  • Health: 3779
  • Attack: 754
  • Load: 150
  • Speed: 950

Professionals are the highest grade, the most elite troops you could incorporate into your army. With the highest stats of all, except Load, they are outclassed by none and feared by all. Professional teams can lead assaults very easily, being some of the most powerful supportive units in the game, if the cost can be supported.

Barbed WireEdit

Troop barbedwire

Booby TrapsEdit

Troop boobytrap

  • Description: Setting a few Booby Traps is a great way to make your enemies see your point.
  • Health: 40
