The massive city can not be controlled by one man so Clay needs his underbosses. Meanwhile, his underbosses need associates to provide different perks and services to Clay during missions.
When you take control of more Rackets and Districts and keep doing favors for your underbosses, you will unlock Mafia 3 associates. Each comes with its own perk such as Vehicles delivery, arms delivery, police dispatcher and more.
You will have access to The Associates’ Services selection wheel that is made of 6 sections. Different sections will unlock as progress through the game.
The wheel is divided into Operator, Consigliere, Hit Squad, Vehicle Delivery, Police Dispatcher, and Arms Dealer. However, using associated perks will cost you markers or money.
You can earn markers by doing favors for underbosses or just pay the associated upfront in cash. Perks usually cost 1 Marker each.
