Hacks and Cheats
'If you ain't cheatin, you ain't tryin''
- Sports Proverb
In this section, I will demonstrate how to hack the Mob Wars application, get unlimited stats, and steal from the developers - not! I'll show you a few simple ways to throw the game out of balance in your favor, but I'm not going to crack it for you. If you have the skills to do it on your own, you don't need this page anyway.
Take A Break From Leveling
A really good tactic once you get to levels 18-20, is to take a break from leveling. Still log on regularly, but don't fight or do jobs. Just put your money into property constantly! Do this for 2-3 weeks (I did it for a month), and your daily income will skyrocket. You want to stop leveling so that you can become richer than you are supposed to be for your level. It throws the game out of balance, in your favor. This means you can have as big a mob as you want, equip them with anything you want, put hits on anyone you want at your level, and basically take your money worries away for the rest of the game.
While you build your wealth, also spend the time recruiting the maximum number of people you can into your mob. With the wealth you are building, you will be able to afford it. Don't equip your mob until the very end of your 'sabbatical'. You won't need them until you start actively playing again, and the upkeep will just rob wealth.
So after three weeks to a month, you will have a huge mob. You will be able to win just about any fight, and defend against all but the most powerful attacks. You'll be able to buy any equipment you need. You will have enough money to put a hit on just about anyone at your level. Others at your level won't be able to afford hits on you. Sounds good, doesn't it?
The 'Wolf Pack' Strategy - Pulling Hits in Force
I have a number of 100+ level friends who will sit around at night and do nothing but pull hits. Basically they get together, and as a group of 4-5 people, will simultaneously attack the hits as a group. One of the members almost always gets the kill, and in a primetime playing session (early evening) of a couple of hours, its not uncommon for them to pull in 10 Billion EACH. So get your friends together, and hit these marks in force!
I do not condone hacking facebook applications in any way, so if you get caught, don't tell you I didn't warn you. Here are a few simple, relatively harmless hacks you can use:
Find Out Who A Mobster Really Is
Pretty much all applications utilize Facebook id's to identify a player. So if you want to find out who someone really is, look at the URL at the top of the page. It will look something like this:
Where the x's are, there will be numbers. These numbers correlate directly to the facebook user id. Copy this url, and paste it into the address bar:
Replace the x's with the numbers from the first address, go to the page, and ta da! You now know who this person is. It can be a great way to make peace, or even recruit your enemies.
Change Quantities On Pages
Ever want to buy something in a different quantities rather than multiples of 1, 5, or 10? As of the publication of this page, this little trick still works, but it may not in the future.
Save the stockpile or city page locally to your desktop using 'save as' in your browser. Open it up with an HTML editor, find the item you want to change, and change the drop down menu value. Open up the page locally, and buy away.
