Hello,

we found a few men with strange faces in Mafia. There is one of them in https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vSShuSoOvGk at 0:30 and another one at 0:32. They both wear trenchcoats, seem to have the same, unusual face and apparently draw their weapons before being attacked. Another one is in https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xyfUB5_Mijc at 7:56. I don't think they appear in the city normally. Given their behaviour, we theorised in the comments that it could be a mechanic that was scrapped in development. Does anyone know about this? Or are we just making things up?

We have this theory in the community that the old guy is a detective/undercover cop. He's the only pedestrian that works similar to cops - he will try to arrest you when the police is chasing you.
He's not mentioned in the files though, so I can't say anything else about him.

You can watch him in action here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6qmL-NY20do

I see, so they were probably hostile because of his driving. That's not quite as interesting as I hoped, but maybe that's why it was cut. Thanks anyway.

It's unclear if that guy's game is modified. I've never seen that happen, however. Apparently he's an old detective.

The detectives in this game only appear in missions and they are already hostile when they do.

Perhaps there is something going on with the scripting of these particular missions which allows this man to appear in some case.

He is not a result of modding. He appears in standard game and as I already said - there's nothing in the files. You can spot him in Freeride or any mission as a normal pedestrian. Breaking the law triggers him to act.

I can confirm that this is not a mod. i've seen the police guy once in my life when playing mafia, it seems to me that he's more rare than the dog head person.

You haven't really gone though Mafia if you haven't seen a dog-woman or a dog-man a time or two. Sticking out tongue

So does this guy appear in freeride, or particular missions? Or both?

I have completed Mafia 13 times and I kid you not, I haven't seen the famous dog-headed guy not once! Some luck... I don't think so!

Yeah, I saw it later. Looks like they got rediscovered a few times recently.

Completed, enh. It's random (AFAIK) so not based on how much you have played, but if you have enough hours of for instance freeride play around places people are walking, you are sure to find one. For I've come across them a number of times.

But not this detective, that I recall.
