The gang carries pistols, shotguns, submachine guns, knives and otherwise fight with their fists. The mobsters usually carry one or two weapons during gameplay as noted from Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and Grand Theft Auto IV.
New York City Commission
The Commission in GTA IV is based on New York City's real Mafia Commission: the Five Families in New York City's Commission are:
- The Gambetti-Ancelotti rivalry is possibly based on the Gambino-Colombo war, as they are the only two families in the New York City Commission that are not allied with each other.
- In the The Lost and Damned, before you fight them in Gang Wars, Clay will sometimes say "Lets teach those Mobsters it ain't the 70's anymore".
- There is an easy way to tell if a pedestrian in Little Italy is in the Mafia by pushing them (this will result in them fighting back), then pull out a gun, they will take out either an SMG, Combat Shotgun, or Pistol.
