...It's Who You Know is the sixth contract for the Russian Mafia and the third for them during the second quarter of Mercenaries: Playground of Destruction.


The contract involves acquiring the location of the Queen of Diamonds from a journalist, then locating and verifying the Queen, with the bonus condition of killing the journalist after receiving the information on the Queen.


  1. Make contact with the journalist
  2. Locate the Queen of Diamonds
  3. Verify the Queen of Diamonds

BONUS: Kill the "journalist" after he ceases to be "useful" (After meeting the journalist)

Supplies & Support GivenEdit

  • None

The ContractEdit

The value of the contract is the value of the face card; therefore the contract is worth $175,000 if the Queen is captured or $87,500 is the Queen is killed and verified. The value of the bonus condition is an additional $50,000.


"You know what they say 'curiosity killed the cat...

...And by 'cat'. I mean journalist."

Sergei Voronov


  • It is possible that killing the journalist will penalise the player a massive $250,000, thereby severely diminishing the value of the bonus condition.
