In many ways, Moscow is the forgotten city in the Facebook game Mafia Wars. It has few innovations that are not present in other cities and the major unique factor of the city is something that is relatively unpopular: social missions. The one major redeeming value of Moscow in Mafia Wars is that it is very easy to earn money in the city. The high investment return on properties and the high energy return on jobs make it the cheapest city in the game to heal in. Since this is the only major draw of the city, players rarely perform jobs in the city. This leads to few players getting all of the achievements in Moscow. This is especially odd since Moscow has the fewest achievements available of any city. There are only three achievements in Moscow. If you are interested in acquiring these achievements, this guide will help you get them as quickly and painlessly as possible.
Rossiya Matushka – Arguably, this achievement is very easy to obtain. In order to obtain this achievement, you simply need to travel to Moscow. But, Moscow requires that you be at least level 70 before you can travel to it. If you are playing a pure energy character, you may reach level 70 in a reasonable time, but a balanced character or a fighting character could actually take a quite a long time to reach level 70. If you want to get this achievement quickly, then the simplest way is to maximize your experience to energy (or stamina) ratio. Once you reach level 70, travel to Moscow and the achievement is yours.
Pank n’ Spank – In order to obtain this achievement, you need to win a fight against Dmitri Leonov. Dmitri is the boss of the Baklany stage of Moscow and you need to master every other job in the stage in order to fight Dmitri. Unlike previous bosses in the game, you can not actually defeat this boss alone. You will need a friend to respond to your call for assistance in order to defeat this boss. If you have a lot of friends that play Mafia Wars, this should be easy enough. If not, your best bet is probably to create a second Facebook account, friend yourself in the game, and assist yourself with the other account.
Back in the U.S.S.R. – This achievement is gained when you vault the Soviet Memorabilia collection. The various pieces of this collection are found by completing jobs on the Vor stage of Moscow. In order to unlock the Vor stage, you need to master every stage before it. Mastering a single level of a stage will unlock the next stage, so you don’t need to master any stage multiple times. If you are only interested in getting the achievement, then perform the Stop a Terrorist Attack in Moscow job until you get every item from the collection. That job costs the least points of energy and doesn’t require any consumable items to perform.
