Compromised Corruption is a story chapter in Mafia III.

Overview

Compromised Corruption 2

Lincoln Clay takes down the rackets in the Downtown district and ultimately its lieutenant Tony Derazio.

Narrative

Construction

Lincoln meets with Lennie Davis at the Swoosh Bar & Grill in Downtown to talk about Jimmy Cavar and his construction racket. It seems Cavar is blackmailing Lennie, forcing him to rubber stamp phony building projects for his company, Cavar Construction, who are building the new City Hall in the heart of Downtown. He suggests Lincoln begin by getting to some of Cavar's men to see what he can learn.

Blackmail

Lincoln meets with Harold Cauley, a reporter for The Tattler, who tells him that Frankie Bernard is at the center of Derazio's corruption racket in Downtown. They're controlling bribes to city officials, blackmail operations, and other deals. While Harold can't tell Lincoln where Bernard is, he knows the location of the dead drops he uses to leave bribes for the city officials. He also knows Bernard keeps a secret blackmail stash of money somewhere, so he suggests that Lincoln start by getting one of the couriers to give up its location.

Compromised Corruption 3

Talk to Lennie Davis.

Interrogate Cavar's foremen.

  • There are two Racket Informants for this objective, and one will be randomly chosen and shown on the map. He will tell Lincoln where to find Cavar's money stash.
  • Killing the informant will earn you $1000 and do the same amount of damage to the racket, while recruiting him will add $2000 to your racket's initial earn with no racket damage.
    • Max Ardizzi will be in an alley in northwest Downtown. There will be $875 in cash, two supply crates, and one truck that you can destroy.
    • Virgil Gauthier will be across the street from the Swoosh Bar & Grill where you start. There will be $875 in cash, two supply crates, and one truck that you can destroy.

Steal Cavar's money stash.

Destroy Cavar's construction equipment.

  • If you've wiretapped the district, there will be eight locations marked on your map; otherwise, you will have to drive around and find them individually. Each location will have supply crates and Cavar Construction trucks that can be destroyed. Supply crates will do $1000 damage, and trucks are worth $2500.
  • Each can be destroyed by explosives or simply shooting the compressed gas cylinder or fuel tank.

Find and destroy Cavar's construction vehicles.

  • There will be Potomac 5500 trucks with the Cavar logo on them driving around Downtown. Chase after and destroy them for $2500 in damage each.

Bring down Cavar's construction crane.

  • Go to the Cavar Construction Site and work your way through the large group of men there. You will find $10,500 in cash around the site. When you're ready, head to the blue fuel tank at the base of the crane and use the interact button to attach the explosives. Once you clear the area the crane will explode, causing $25,000 in damage.

Return to Lennie Davis.

  • Once you've completed the required damage you may return to Lennie or continue working on the remaining objectives. Lennie will tell Lincoln that Jimmy Cavar is over at the construction site.

Confront Jimmy Cavar.

  • Go to the Cavar Construction Site and confront Jimmy Cavar. You may kill him to earn $1500 or recruit him to add $4000 to the racket's initial earn.
  • The initial earn of this racket will be $40,000, plus anyone Lincoln recruited. This can be raised to a maximum of $60,000 by completing the appropriate trafficking mission.
