Nothing says 1960’s Americana like the rise of Playboy Magazine. This guide will show you how to find every Playboy Magazine in Mafia 3. There are 50 Playboy Magazines hidden throughout the city of New Bordeaux, and we’ll help you track down every one. Each magazine will be indicated by a Playboy Bunny icon on your display when it is within your vicinity.
Along with brief descriptions, we will provide two images for each magazine entry: one that indicates the magazine’s map location, and another that shows the in-game location of the magazine itself. We have also organized the magazines based on district to make things a bit easier.
