Mafia 2 Playboy guide

 It’s hard to imagine a less dignified or mobster-like activity than continually dropping everything to search every inch of every room for pornography, but that’s exactly what Mafia II asks you to do – assuming, of course, that you’re trying to collect all 50 issues of Playboy scattered throughout the game and net the Ladies’ Man Achievement/Trophy. Stop. Don’t waste time and/or ruin the tension of every action scene by scrounging for naked  pictures of women now old enough to be your great-grandmother.  We already did it for you, and now we’ll save you the guesswork by pointing out where to find every last one.

Above: Just think – your grandpa may have once kept this very centerfold hidden under his mattress. Now you can bond!

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

Chapter 2

Don’t bother looking for Playboy in the game’s first chapter, since the magazine didn’t really exist in Sicily during World War II. Technically it didn’t exist in the ‘40s at all, but that won’t stop you from finding them when Vito returns to Empire Bay.

Playmate 1: Your very first issue of Playboy is sitting on Joe’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’s office and the giant car crusher are. You’ll see a building with garage doors and one normal-sized door. Head on in.

Once inside, look to your right. You’ll see the next issue on a shelf.

Chapter 3

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

Above: Ew, it's still warm 

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

Playmate 40: After you break into the building, you’ll find the next Playboy sitting on the corner of the guard’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’ll find a set of double doors on the left. Open them and head through the next hallway until you reach a blue door. Open it and go down the stairs.

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

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

Playmate 5: When you reach the director’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’s office. Go inside.

Once you’re in the door, the next issue will be on a windowsill immediately to your right.

    My grandpa has these (1 of them)..... lol
  • the1westwood - September 9, 2010 9:37 p.m.

    lol.. amusing to say the leat at how you say the pics are probably about 50 years old, if you paid attention the the pic and not the girls themselves you can see yourself they arent as old as you say nor think :)
  • Eaxis - September 3, 2010 9:28 a.m.

    I found 29 of them while enjoying the game, so now i'll get them all with this guide.

    @GangsterJew92: My thoughts exactly
  • GangsterJew92 - August 29, 2010 5:32 p.m.

    Best. Game. Collectible. Ever.
  • philipshaw - August 28, 2010 10 p.m.

    Shame this is the only other thing to do in the game that is not the story
  • leprechaun - August 28, 2010 7:19 p.m.

    @GamesRadarMikelReparaz actually ive already played the game and beaten it. I was just making a statement that people should spend less time worrying about the playboys and actually enjoy the game for the real reasons it should be played, not the 50 year old playmate pics
  • GamesRadarMikelReparaz - August 28, 2010 12:02 a.m.

    @leprechaun: Oh, you must be looking for the review. This is the guide on where to find Playboys. Guides on where to find specific things in a game are generally not good places to read about all the other things that are not those specific things. Here's the review: (You'll have to copy/paste that as our comments don't allow linking for some reason.)
  • leprechaun - August 27, 2010 9:36 p.m.

    Is anyone going to mention that this game fucking righteous in a lot of ways other then the nudie mags? Sure the playboys are great but do we really care about them that much? I mean why waste your time searching for a bunch of pictures of women who are probably hobbling around with there walkers in and old folks home suffering from emphysema or lung cancer. what happened to the good old days when people used the internet for porn rather then studying a game guide to look for old nudie pics in a game. So wipe the splooge off your T.V screen and try to actually ejoy what i thought was an amazing game
  • HitmanSB07 - August 26, 2010 11:32 p.m.

    These and Pokemon are the greatest collectibles of all time.
  • Crypto140 - August 26, 2010 10:15 p.m.

    This was the whole reason any one got this game. At first, people were like "okay, looks good, might get this when it hits $40." But now, after the demo, they ran to the stores to pre order. Possibly the only achievment every Mafia 2 player has and the only reason why people play it again.
  • SuperBrettroid - August 26, 2010 9:32 p.m.

    This guide will definitely come in handy. I can't wait to pick this up. Thanks Mikel.
  • Gable - August 26, 2010 9:31 p.m.

    I came here hoping for boobs, I want my ten minutes back!
  • batmanboy11 - August 26, 2010 9:12 p.m.

    Best collectibles. EVER.
  • Dabenguin - August 26, 2010 7:51 p.m.

    thats exactly what achevement hunter said ricono reCaptcha: fecl gernews
  • ricono - August 26, 2010 7:48 p.m.

    i suspect that this will be the most collected collectible of all time
  • db1331 - August 26, 2010 7:40 p.m.

    Could these be the greatest game collectibles of all time?
