Challenge Mission: Bangkok Walkthrough


Challenge Mission: Bangkok is the 12th Challenge Mission in Mafia Wars but the 5th with the new layout style. Due to a minimal learning curve and lack of interest in repeated event type posts this walkthrough will not be as detailed as the previous ones and will not contain specific details about job mastery percentages and the number of consumables needed. We can go by estimates of the previous 4 Challenge Missions and that information is shown below. Even if we sped this up by using thousands of reward points, the question on this matter couldn’t be answered until the 3rd Chapter unlocks in 6 days from now. Zynga surprised us all last time by increasing the consumables required so I would expect the same to happen this time. This Challenge Mission contains 3 Chapters and there are a total of 9 days to complete it. Unfortunately this Challenger Mission comes at a bad time. The Family Mission is taking its toll and the Mexico Pre-Release Event already has us begging and collecting. If Zynga was smarter about things or understood the desires of their player base, they would release nothing for a few weeks, bore us to death and we would be begging them for a new destination. The overall feel towards Mexico is dread rather than excitement as we know it will show up when too much is already going on. If you need more details on how this event works, go here. The specifics for Chapter 1 are shown below.

The help mark provides the in game instructions and a tracker.
The Travel Bar is getting busy. Between the current destinations, the ‘New Location’, the Secret District and now this, Zynga may run out of room.
If you don’t like the tracker in the game, use the Event Meter by Team Spockholm.
At this time only Chapter 1 is unlocked and the next Chapters unlock on day 3 and day 6. In theory, Challenge Missions are pretty simple as all you need to do are jobs. What can make them difficult is the fact that energy and consumable requirements increase as the job heat meter goes up. Showing some restraint and only doing jobs in the green or yellow job heat meters is the trick to completing this event without the need of reward points. cm13 There are 4 jobs in each chapter and the Job Heat Meter does not affect mastery or experience payouts it only affects energy and consumable requirements. Because energy requirements go up but the experience payout remains the same, the experience/energy ratio will decrease as the Job Heat Meter increases. The energy requirements are on a gradient based on your account and will not be the same as the ones shown here but the ratios will be the same. cm3 greenmetergreenmeter yellowmeteryellowmeter redmeterredmeter

The consumable item required for all jobs of the Challenge Mission is the Jade Switch. There are several different ways in which we can collect them and they are listed in the instructions. The ‘Daily Collect’ will increase as new Chapters unlock. For Chapter 1 you can get up 110  per day and an additional 15 if 3 of your mafia members join your Challenge Mission Crew. This number will increase when Chapters 2 and 3 unlock but so do the number of consumables needed for the jobs. Use the links below for more details on how to get the maximum number of consumables.

The chart below sums up where and how to get Jade Switches. It’s possible to get 1,110 for the entire event. If this event is similar to the last one and you stay on the Green Heat Meter you will need about 900-950 so there is enough to get this done without spending reward points. You will need to collect most of these in order to master the event. It may not be a good idea to do jobs on the Yellow Heat Meter anymore as it was too close last time. The strategy this time should be stay on Green and collect all your consumables.

Activity Per Day Per Event
Jobs 25 225
Fights 20 180
Robbing 20 180
Arena 20 180
Daily Collect 20/25/30 225
Feeds 5 45
Crew Members* 15/25/35 75
*Resets when you master the Chapter.

For those who aren’t patient, you can purchase Jade Switches for 1 reward point each but you need to purchase at least 2 at a time. cm14
We can’t say how many Jade Switches will be needed for the entire event because we won’t know the requirements until both Chapters 2 and 3 unlock. The requirements for the last 4 Challenge Missions are shown below. Take special not of Las Vegas as Zynga increased them on the last 2 Chapters. Many never finished the event because of this [1].

When you master each job, you get +1 Skill Point and the next job unlocks. The mastery item for Chapter 1 is a Gear Head and you will receive it once the 4th job in the Chapter is mastered. It’s a good idea to get share your accomplishment because the feeds are limited. You can earn up to 5 Jade Switches per day from clicking on these requests but it’s not that easy to find a live one.

  1. I'm stuck on Chapter 2 with all jobs 100% and it won't move to Chapter 3. Too bad this was released while many were working on the family mission so there isn't enough time to finish it anyway.
