Mafia: Definitive Edition - how to complete a mission with race on classic difficulty
With the release of Mafia: Definitive Edition, many users wanted to experience the unsurpassed atmosphere of game again.

With the release of the remake, many users wanted to experience the unsurpassed atmosphere of the series again, playing at the classic difficulty level — the highest in a video game, because it gives Mafia an extraordinary realism, but something went wrong.

The fact is that it is on the "classic" that this mission is especially monstrous. If you have never played or just haven't heard of it, then we can explain it easily and easily: the race in Mafia is more difficult than the helicopter mission in GTA: Vice City. Yes, you heard right, it is more difficult!

And for some unknown reason, it has become even heavier in Mafia: Definitive Edition. Yes, many players asked to make the remake more difficult, but no one asked for such a ruthless race! On the contrary, we all prayed that it would become easier. However, the developers seem to have decided to mock.

Even if you don't play at the classic difficulty level, the next guide should help you take first place and finally win this challenge.

The race appears in Chapter 5, "Fair play", and you have to drive a fast car with very poor handling — turns are difficult, and if you crash into something or drive too slowly, you will certainly lose.

The racing mission in Mafia: Definitive Edition still requires absolute precision, but there are some tricks that you can use to gain an advantage.

  • Take a short cut at the corners, as this is a great chance to overtake rivals, but it is important to keep the car straight so as not to skidded. In addition, do not even try to crash into other racers, because any touch to another car will instantly cause your car to turn.
  • If you're playing on a console, tap X (PS4) or a (Xbox) on turns: the buttons help you control the car better and gain some speed ahead of enemy racers.
  • The "speed limit" button can also help when cornering, but it's not an ideal solution. Its use can lead to loss of grip and frequent fluctuations of the car. If it helps, then go for it.
  • After each lap, one race participant is eliminated – as planned. Therefore, we recommend that you pull off a very interesting trick, namely to take 3rd place on the second lap. If you are not in 3rd place by the second lap, restart the race immediately and try again. If you are in 3rd place, you will gradually gain momentum in the last two laps, as the two drivers in front of you will be eliminated automatically, and voila-1st place in the pocket.

Many players actually managed to get through the most annoying Mafia: Definitive Edition mission faster thanks to the turn-cutting and 3rd-place trick. Yes, this is still a difficult task that requires absolute accuracy, but all these tips should increase the chance of winning. Good luck!
