Hotline Miami Wiki

This article is on the enemy type, if you are looking for the Russian Mafia faction, See Russian Mafia.

Mobsters (known as Mafia in the Level Editor) are the most common enemy in Hotline Miami and are one of the two most common enemy factions in Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number, the other being Gangs.

In Hotline Miami, they appear in every chapter except Trauma, Assault, Prank Call and Resolution. Mobsters can be taken down any way the player desires as they have no unique attributes. If a mobster is stripped of his weapon, he will attempt to find another one which he can use. If this fails, the mobster will try to stay a set distance from the player and will not attack.

Mobsters return in Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number and function the same, but aren't as common as they were in the first game. However, they still remain to be some of the most common enemies in the game. There is also a demonic sub-faction of Mobsters encountered in Apocalypse.

Mobsters can use these weapons in both Hotline Miami and Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number (with some exceptions):


Judging from artwork and in-game sprites, mobsters wear white pastel suits and blue shirts underneath. On the game's box art they are seen with hair and glasses but in-game they are all bald and lack any kind of accessories.



  • Rasmus the owl can be seen wearing Mobster apparel, shedding more light on why he's so hostile to Jacket.
  • In the four-player co-op game, Payday 2, the Russian mobsters make an appearance as enemies in a two-day heist based off of Hotline Miami. They closely resemble the mobsters featured in Hotline Miami's cover art.
