Mafia City Beginner’s Guide – Buildings

This is a beginners guide to Mafia City.

Mafia City is game of war / clash of kings type of game. So, if you’ve played any of those games before then you should not have a problem trying to understand the mechanics of this game. This post is going to be about the various buildings in the game.

You can watch the two videos below or read the post to get an idea about the buildings.


This is your main building which you have to upgrade in order to upgrade other buildings. You cannot upgrade other buildings beyond your current mansion level. You also get a boost in gathering speed per upgrade while leveling it up from level 6 to level 13.

The Wall

Upgrading the wall is a prerequisite for upgrading the mansion. Upgrading it increases the maximum capacity of your defense weapons and also increases your durability. The higher your durability is, the longer it takes for you to teleport randomly after getting attacked a number of times.

The Troop / Vehicle Training Centers

Upgrading the training centers will unlock powerful troops. You would want to upgrade these buildings as soon as you can unlock new troops (i.e. whenever your level reaches 4, 7, 10… and so on). It doesn’t make a lot of sense if you upgrade it at other levels since it won’t give you any benefits.


The pawnbroker helps you increase your exchange speed & it also reduces your check consumption for exchanging equipment.

The Clan Hall

It increases your raiding capacity. It is important to upgrade this building in order to send more troops to build clan buildings and also to accommodate more troops during raids.

The Bootleg Market

This helps you trade resources with your clan mates. Upgrading this will increase the amount of resources you can send per march & it also reduces the tax rate.

The Black Market

This building allows you to get cargo, cash arms or metal in exchange for wine or gold. Upgrading this building will increase the amount of free wine you get per day & it also increases the amount of resources you get per exchange.

The Security Center

This building helps you build defense weapons. Defense weapons help a lot by doing damage to the troops of players who attack your turf. There’s a maximum capacity of defense weapons that can be held. This maximum capacity can be increased by upgrading your wall.

Invest Center

This building allows you to research various technologies like gathering speed, march speed, troop attack and a lot more. Upgrading this building will unlock stronger technologies or will allow you to upgrade the existing technologies to a higher level.


The radar gives you information about enemies’s troops whenever they’re marching towards you. Upgrading it also gives you a more detailed spy report including information about troop numbers, types, number of defense weapons, troop levels and a lot more.


The Diner will increase your march size (crime ops size) & is a must to upgrade if you want to increase the power of your attacks. Upgrading this building will help you send more troops per march which will lead to less losses while doing street forces. It’ll also increase the probability of you winning attacks against other players.


The vault helps protect your resources. It is important to upgrade this building especially if you get attacked a lot since this building protects your resources from getting robbed. The higher it’s level the more resources it protects.

Clan Club

Apart from increasing your reinforcement capacity (i.e. players will be able to send more troops to reinforce you if you upgrade this building) the clan club also increases the time reduced by each help from a clan mate & also the number of times you can get help from clan mates.

The Resource Production Buildings

These buildings include the Counterfeiter, Cargo Hub, Ammu-Nation & Smelter. These buildings will increase the amount of resources produced per hour along with their resource capacity if you upgrade them.


Clubs let you train more troops at a time at the training centers & they also increase training speed. The more clubs you have, the faster you can train.


The hospital is a building that protects your troops from dying. If your turf gets attacked, your troops will get wounded until the hospital is full. Once the hospital becomes full, they will start dying. Upgrading the hospital will increase it’s capacity thereby leading to less deaths. However, the troops that you lose in battles that don’t take place in your turf will die even if the hospital is empty.

That was a short description of all the buildings in the game. We’ll be taking a look at troop types next.

  1. I want to know what happens if I demolish my vault? my farm has almost 100m rss, and i attacked it and only got 5k!! I sent all Vehicles, so its not about them.. my farm is mansion 20 and vault is lvl 9! why its protecting all that rss? if i demolish the vault, can I rob it, or the rss would be lost?

    1. Use hex codes in square brackets before writing something. For example,

      [00FF00] Write your text here

      The above text will display “Write your text here” in green.

  2. Other than upgrading the Clan Club, how can I increase my reinforcement capacity. My clan club is at lvl 20 so I have 204k capacity but it says 204k +0. Is there an investment, babe or equipment that will change the 0?

    1. The clan investments (clan club expansion – lvl 3 investment), leader skills (support tree – Reinforce cap – Requires level 38+) & godfather equipment (Blue or higher quality godfather scarves), all can increase your reinforcement capacity.

    1. It’s upto the leader of the clan to assign duties to the warlord, recruiter, consiglier & counselor. You should ask your leader for more info. Different clans have different rules.

    1. You should ask your R5 or R4, they’re mostly the ones who handle clan promotions, although R3s can also promote R1s to R2

  3. Hi.
    How can i demolish the clan hospital?
    Should I demolish first the clan tower?
    If I demolish the clan tower and build it again, will it affect the clan buildings already built in the base?
    Thanks in advance.🙂

    1. I don’t think you can directly demolish the clan hospital as I can’t find any option to do so by clicking on it, so you’ll have to demolish the clan tower to get rid of it. If you demolish the clan tower, it will automatically demolish all the clan buildings within the range of that clan tower & not the buildings that are in the range of other towers.

  4. How do we re modify the clan defense towers we have them up all 11 and built but can’t find were it is at to do so

    1. I think that’s a feature they’re going to add in a future update, I couldn’t find a ‘modify’ option either

  5. Are there any benefits in having a defense towers? We have 7 in our clan and during Kill Event, will our troops be at risk for casualties? Thanks in advance if you can help!!

    1. Yes they slow down enemy attacks and after re modification they well cause damage to them you only have 7 up off 11 tho i would put them all up

  6. What is the difference between Safe resource, Vault protected resource, and non safe resource and how do I make sure all off my resources can’t be robbed? I am getting robbed and attacked quite a bit.

    1. Safe resources are the resources that can’t be robbed. There’s a limit of resources upto which they can be stored in the vault, all non-safe resources within this limit will be safe. Moreover, the resources that you get from resource boxes are also safe. The resources that you get from gathering, resource buildings, black market, etc. are all non-safe.

  7. How to demolish resource building, like cargo or counterfier, because when I press demolish button always says “queue is full” ?

    1. Both your building queues are occupied, that’s why you’re getting that message. You’ll have to wait for at least one building to finish before you demolish the resource buildings.

  8. How do i close a old account. Cant remember old account details. I know the city. ingame name. and leader level. I want to buind my new account to face book. thanks for the help

    1. You can’t close an old account. You can unbind it though & bind your facebook to your new account if you don’t want to use your old account. Once you unbind your old account, you won’t be able to use it again though.

    1. Good thing is that it gives 50k more hospital capacity. I don’t see anything bad other than the high cost of healing troops which they’ve reduced with the recent update. Maybe you could also say that zeroing people has become harder because of the increased hospital capacity.

    1. Upgrade your diner, upgrade your babes, invest in ‘Leadership’, use the 25% / 50% / 60% / 70% march size buff if necessary, use the Ringleader skill, invest your skillpoints in Mobilizing limit (Need to be at least level 38 to unlock this skill in the battle tree)

  9. Hello

    I have 2 Black Jades what are they good for or how can you use them ?

    Do you need to collect a certain # of them in order to use them ?

    1. They’re used to make the developing set. The set is not very useful for battle only useful for growth. You need 90 black jades along with 60 blueprints & 3 golden gems to make a golden piece of the developing set.

  10. Hello

    If you buy a vigilante with real $ and you attack and gain experience for vigilante
    Can you level those up with the exp you gained from st forces or merchants?

    ( Vigilante ‘s as in Marcus and Nate , Suri and so on )

    1. You can level them up by using the vigilante experience that you get from defeating Mercenaries. However, street forces don’t give you any vigilante experience.

    1. Are you referring to the 4 clan positions? The don’t really have any responsibilities as such but the leader could give them different responsibilities.

  11. I can’t find info anywhere on how the Bootleg Market actually works in terms of deciding how much resources can be sent at a given time. Would you be able to explain more about it?

    1. When you select the ‘Bootleg Market’ click on the ‘i’ option that pops up, there you’ll be able to find out how many resources you can send & the tax rates for every level.
