- "I guess ya should have hired better bodyguards."
"You must be insane, thinking you can get away with this! Don Barzini will not stand for this, if the cops don't nail you first!"
- ―Aldo and Mazza[src]
Mazza served as a loyal consigliere to Emilio Barzini, Sr. from the founding date of the family and godfather of Emilio Barzini, Jr.. Although considered to be a healer to the Barzinis, he was a very paranoid man. Due to his paranoia and to his influence in the family, he had an army of bodyguards protecting him from hits.
However, this was to be his undoing, as one of his bodyguards was bribed by Aldo Trapani, who led Mazza into a false sense of security. Whilst walking in Bryant Park, Mazza was gunned down from a car driven by Trapani and filled with several trusted Corleone family enforcers.
Players (Al Neri Hit 4):
Domenico Mazza's bodyguard - Mazza has two bodyguards who can be persuaded to work on your behalf. Either (but not both) can be bribed for $10,000. It's a small price to pay for help in Mazza's execution.
Domenico Mazza - Domenico may have money to burn, but you can't buy loyalty these days. Even a walk in the park becomes a carefully choreographed affair; Mazza is the man in the middle.
Mazza is a difficult target to hit, as expected from a Barzini hit target and a Consigliere. He is very tough and can cause high amount of damage even in high player level. True to the details, he does possess a lot of guards with toughness that surpass the generic Barzinis.
In the original game, you will have to bribe one of his guards on the entrance. Each guard are only at Soldier rank and brings a pistol, which is anticipated to be killed in an instant, to more of your annoyance they need $10,000 to be bribed. However, considering the bonus condition gives you more money than you spend it may be worth it.
In the newer versions, hiring crew members are cheaper than bribing. Plus, with your rank as Caporegime, your family is already quite strong maybe equal or stronger than Cuneo members which gives you great advantage, making the hit is actually less difficult. However, the player should also be wise to pick up a vehicle that can surivive through a lot of damage, as the Barzinis will shot very fast and the vehicle may explode quickly.
