Mobsters (known as Mafia in the Level Editor) are the most common enemy inHotline 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):

  • M16
  • Shotgun
  • Double Barrel
  • Baseball Bat
  • Lead Pipe
  • Golf Club
  • Knife
  • Silenced Pistol (Hotline Miami only)
  • Kalashnikov (Wrong Number only)
  • Butterfly Knife (Wrong Number only)
  • Silenced Heavy Pistol (Wrong Number only)
  • Uzi (only on Apocalypse)


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.
