How To Find Out Who Declared War On You


Most of us have had the encountered a war that was declared on us when we were off line. After closing out a ton of popups, you see the “War Over” notification.
wo Going to your Declare War Page often results in disappointment when you realize you lost the war. Some players get really pissed off and want to go after the person who had the nerve to do this while you were off line. Honestly it doesn’t bother me because 99% of the time it’s random. You were just someone on the fightlist who was available for a war. The person declaring it on you is just playing the game.
Those who wish to retaliate often find they can’t because there isn’t an easy way to get the profile link of the player who declared war. All players who helped in the war are listed by profile but if the person who declared the war did not attack anybody (most of us don’t help in our own wars because it takes away the opportunity for your mafia members to help), their profile link is not available.
Brandon Venery wrote a script called War Opponent and it will easily identify the player who declared a war on you. To add War Opponent to your Spockholm Toolbar, click here or image below.
Go to your Configuration Page and click on the “Yes, I know the risk” button. 
The script will now be active in your toolbar.
The stand alone version can be used by dragging the bookmarklet below into your bookmark toolbar. To use it your game must be unframed.

War Opponent

To use War Opponent, go to your Declare War Page. Type “War Opponent” in the search bar and click on it. If you use the stand alone script, unframe your game and click on War Opponent from your bookmark toolbar.
You will then get the option to go to the Mafia Wars Profile or Facebook Profile of the player who declared war on you. What you do about it after that is up to you.
Many thanks to Shaun from the Mafia Wars Gods for declaring a war on me and letting me use his image so I could write this post.


  1. Actually - if one rolls over and highlight from the attacker's name to level, then right clicks and "View Selection Source" (Firefox, I'm sure there's something equivalent in Chrome) one will see the FBID in the image portion of the code.

    Very nice to have the bookmarklet, but passing this on as an alternative in case someone may need it when they were using a different machine/browser/etc. where it's not available.

  2. Very nice tool, no hiding anywhere after declaring war

  3. how childish to get upset when somebody else plays the game and declares war on you! if somebody gets upset about that they should leave the game, obviously no plays for them!

    1. How naive of you to believe it is childish! People in general go through a range of emotions. People come to have fun, vent, and / or escape the boredom of their lives. Your way of thinking is not right or wrong, but one of many...keep that in mind before you look down on others :)

    2. Retaliating is just "playing the game", too. There's nothing childish, evil, or wrong in it.

    3. This ass wipe is doing this over, and over, and over. If I could find him, I would kick his ass. I would keep hoim so friggin' busy, he couldn't play the game.

  4. i track them down,always find them too,always,makes it fun,not mad just gives a new aspect to the otherwise boring game,funny when people say stuff like that,person probably cries and hitlists people everytime attacked,everyone plays their own way,not on any of us to decide what is right and what is wrong,because if it was we could find something "wrong"with how we all play,yes everyone...

  5. won't work now?was working yesterday...

  6. working just fine.. lol
    and yes, just a game and don't usually retaliate but once in awhile you get a war that seems to be more than just a random declaration... (first time ever in 2 yrs of this game, actually) ... so...

  7. Is this still working? I typed it into my spock toolbar and it is not finding it?

  8. It installs, but the code for the bookmarklet seems to be broken or missing in part.

  9. This is very handy in my case. I declared war on someone randomly, they have continued to declare war on me daily while I'm away. Thank You!

  10. it's broken... it's not working anymore...

  11. Not working here either
