Mafia 3 is all about taking over and controlling territory. By taking control of districts you not only line your pockets with some extra cash, but you also build up your own group’s strength, readying them for the final confrontation that is the main goal of the game. Each of your three underbooses, Vito, Burke, and Cassandra, can control a district for you, giving you benefits, as well as building up your relationship with that character. But to do this, you need to know how to assign districts in Mafia 3, so here’s a quick guide.
Of course, in order to assign districts in Mafia 3, you first need to take them over. I don’t want to go too in-depth on that. Essentially you need to attack rackets, kill enforcers, and do pretty much anything you can think of to disrupt operations in the area. Do this enough, and the boss of the district will confront you. Defeat him and the area is now yours to control, and assign as you see fit.
Shortly after taking over, you should either have a meeting with your underbosses or receive a phone call, this should happen automatically. This is where you can decide who is going to take control of the district. You can assign the district to any of your three associates, but keep in mind that you need to try to keep them all happy. If you give all the good districts to just one underboss, the other might become pretty upset with you. Try to keep things even, as much as possible.
You should also keep in mind who controls rackets within the district. As you took them over, if you gave them to Burke, giving the district to Cassandra will cost him those earnings. This could impact the perks he provides to you through the game.
That’s it for how to assign districts in Mafia 3. It’s a simple enough process, but the implications and consequences can be very impactful. Keep this stuff in mind and you should be fine, but let us know in the comments if you have any questions.
