* Max taking down dreaded underworld boogeymen like hitman Rico Muerte, mob enforcer Frank Niagara and Don Punchinello's infamous, psychotic assassins Pilot Providence, Joe Salem and Vince Managna, aka The Trio, people who have terrorized the East Coast for god knows how long. While for gameplay reasons they're only EliteMooks, in-universe they're among the most dangerous, bloodthirsty psychopaths to ever walk the Earth.
--> '''Max''': *after killing Managno* Punchinello's Trio was ''history!''
** Killing Jack Lupino takes it even further, as Lupino is AxCrazy and hopped up on Valkyrie, giving him some of the highest hit-points in the game. In the following cutscene, Max unloads all his remaining bullets into Lupino's body to make sure he ''stays'' dead.

* As one of the few survivors of Punchinello's organization, Vinnie Gogetti has rallied the italian mob and is waging war against Vladimir Lem. Pretty good for someone who Max said "had the brains but lacked the balls" to be a leader in organized crime in the last game.

** To elaborate [[spoiler: [[OneManArmy THAT'S ENTIRE U.F.E. BATTALION.]]]]

An EliteMook, cowering in fear from a fat, bald ex-cop with a painkiller addiction ''and rightly so.''

* While he quips that Max knows how to make a good entrance at the end of Chapter 3, Passos' first chronological appearance was quite an entrance: in Chapter 4 in New Jersey, he walks into the bar to see the son of a mob boss pull a gun on Max, so he draws his own gun and tells the kid and his crew to fuck off. When they return, all with guns, he simply tells them to fuck off again without hesitation.
