Mafia 2 Playboy guide

Track down every last Playmate with our chapter-by-chapter guide

It%26rsquo;s hard to imaginea less dignified ormobster-like activitythan continually dropping everything to search every inch of every room for pornography, but that%26rsquo;s exactly what Mafia II asks you to do %26ndash; assuming, of course, that you%26rsquo;re trying to collect all 50 issues of Playboy scattered throughout the game and net the Ladies%26rsquo; Man Achievement/Trophy. Stop. Don%26rsquo;t waste time and/or ruin the tension of every action scene by scrounging for naked pictures of women nowold enough to be your great-grandmother. We already did it for you, and now we%26rsquo;ll save you the guesswork by pointing out where to find every last one.

Above: Just think %26ndash; your grandpa may have once kept thisvery centerfold hidden under his mattress. Now you can bond!

Bear in mind that, unlike the wanted posters (which we%26rsquo;ll have a guide on very soon), issues of Playboy are tied to their particular chapters %26ndash; just because something%26rsquo;s in a freely accessible location doesn%26rsquo;t mean you can go back and find it later. If you miss them, you%26rsquo;ll need to reload the appropriate chapter to find them again %26ndash;and we recommend holding off until you%26rsquo;ve finished the game (or at least finished whatever chapter you%26rsquo;re currently playing so that your last save isn't overwritten) before you do that.

Chapter 2

Don%26rsquo;t bother looking for Playboy in the game%26rsquo;s first chapter, since the magazine didn%26rsquo;t really exist in Sicily during World War II. Technically it didn%26rsquo;t exist in the %26lsquo;40s at all, but that won%26rsquo;t stop you from finding them when Vito returns to Empire Bay.

Playmate 1: Your very first issue of Playboy is sitting on Joe%26rsquo;s coffee table in plain sight. Be sure to grab it before you head outdoors with him.

Playmate 3: When Joe takes you to meet Mike Bruski, look across the yard from where Bruski%26rsquo;s office and the giant car crusher are. You%26rsquo;ll see a building with garage doors and one normal-sized door. Head on in.

Once inside, look to your right. You%26rsquo;ll see the next issue on a shelf.

Chapter 3

Playmate 18: As you leave Derek Papalardo%26rsquo;s office, look on the floor immediately to the left of the door. You%26rsquo;ll find what presumably was the Playboy Steve was reading just moments before.

Above: Ew,it's stillwarm

Playmate 4: When you enter Maria Agnello%26rsquo;s apartment building, look to the left of the shelves standing just opposite the door. You%26rsquo;ll find the next issue laying on the floor.

Playmate 40: After you break into the building, you%26rsquo;ll find the next Playboy sitting on the corner of the guard%26rsquo;s desk in the lobby.

Playmate 6: Facing the back of the guard's desk, turn to your left and walk straight toward the adjoining hallway...

... where you%26rsquo;ll find a set of double doors on the left. Open them and headthrough the next hallway until you reach a blue door. Open it and go down the stairs.

You%26rsquo;ll enter a circular hallway (this is also where you%26rsquo;ll find the alarm system, if you%26rsquo;d like to shut it off). Head around to the far side, where you%26rsquo;ll find this solitary door:

Go inside and walk to your left. You%26rsquo;ll see the next issue laying in this well-lit alcove.

Playmate 5: When you reach the director%26rsquo;s office (which has the key you'll need to access the room with the safe), walk just across the hall to find the industrial specialist%26rsquo;s office. Go inside.

Once you%26rsquo;re in the door, the next issue will be on a windowsill immediately to your right.

After graduating from college in 2000 with a BA in journalism, I worked for five years as a copy editor, page designer and videogame-review columnist at a couple of mid-sized newspapers you've never heard of. My column eventually got me a freelancing gig with GMR magazine, which folded a few months later. I was hired on full-time by GamesRadar in late 2005, and have since been paid actual money to write silly articles about lovable blobs.
