Recruiting – Mafia III
One of the best ways to increase your income in Mafia III is by growing your crime operation. To do this, you should definitely consider recruiting people to your ranks. First off, you can recruit informants. Informants are low tier gangsters who will give you the information you need to track down a racket boss. Once you’ve isolated the informants from their allies, use a melee takedown on them to get the intel, and you’ll then be presented with a choice to either kill them or recruit them. Killing them will reward you with instantaneous cash, but recruiting them will add to your overall income in the long run.
Similar with racket bosses, once you’ve tracked them down, you’ll have to confront them and use a melee takedown. You’ll be presented with the same choice of whether to kill or recruit them. It’s highly recommended that you recruit them, as a larger crime operation will increase the amount of income that you can earn. Unless you really need that cash fast, consider sparing these gangsters and getting them to join up with you.
