My name is Robert Allen Rusk and I am a hardcore gamer with about 30+ years
of gaming experience. I am an ex-gametester (Broderbund Software, LucasArts
Games, Point Of View Computing) and an ex-arcade attendant (Namco
Cyberstation - Pier 39, San Francisco, CA). I also own multiple systems such
as the Sega Dreamcast, Super Nintendo, Nintendo 64, Atari Jaguar, PlayStation
1 and 2, Xbox, and Xbox 360.

I started writing guides in 2003 because I felt it was something I could do
utilizing my writing skills gained in college and gametesting along with my
passion for vidgames. Over time I have honed my overall writing and
organization skills plus my creative thinking skills. Additionally, I have
extended the play value of the games I have written guides and FAQs for many
times over plus I have received many letters from all over the world.

I am also what one may call an RGB Analog Video enthusiast. I hack most of my
game consoles to try to get the best possible video from them and that
usually involves tapping into the RGB Analog video signals and using them on
the right monitors to achieve my desires. To this end I became a member of
the GamesX.com mod forum and I post on their "RGB + Video Discussions" forum
area from time to time.

In addition, I am a member of the X-Otic Computer Systems of San Antonio
(www.xcssa.org), a group who specializes in Linux, Mac, and other systems. We
are also a group of hackers and electronics enthusiasts.

I am also a regular forum poster at GameFAQs, an occasional poster at
AtariAge, Digital Press, GTA Forums, and Video Game Saga. I am also a member
of The MoFaT (a members only message board set up by "Grand Theft Auto: Vice
City" players who met on the Vice City message boards at GameFAQs).

Outside of gaming, my interests include "Godzilla" (I have been a G-Fan since
the age of ten) and "Red Dwarf". I am also a long time soundtrack collector
with many titles in my possession. As far as favorite sports teams go, my
teams are the San Antonio Spurs (NBA) [the local team], the Denver Broncos
(NFL) [although I live in Texas, I am originally from Colorado Springs,
Colorado] and the Air Force Falcons (NCAA Football).

This guide was constructed using TextWrangler on an Apple Mac Mini. I view my
work in Safari to help in seeing how it would look on the web and correct
format errors.

On the PC version I originally played this game on a Dell Optiplex GX270 (at
2.4Ghz) with 1GB of RAM and on Windows XP Professional. The GX270 also uses a
built-in Intel 82865G Graphics Controller and SoundMAX Integrated Digital
Audio. I also have a Dell Optiplex GX620 (at 3.2Ghz) with 2GB of RAM and on
Windows XP Professional. This machine also has a Galaxy GeForce GT 610 video
card installed.

I also played the PC version using a wonderful little program called Xpadder
V5.3, a program that will allow you to map keyboard commands to a joypad. The
joypad I used for the PC version is the Xbox 360 joypad with the "Xbox 360
for Windows" driver.

I also played the PS2, Xbox, and GameCube versions using old game saves to
try out new ideas for this guide. I also played the Xbox 360 version and
added relevant information regarding it and the PS3 version.

Welcome to my "Hitman 2: Silent Assassin" guide! If this is the first time
you have visited then you will find a lot of useful information in a highly
organized format that you can use to beat all of the missions of the game.

Quotes taken from readers' e-mail are presented "as is" and may include
spelling and grammatical errors.

The main emphasis of this guide is to provide creative and simple solutions
to many of the missions for this game. Many hours were spent going over each
mission and finding unique ways to solve them. I think you will be surprised
by some of the solutions found here.

This guide was originally written while playing the game on the *NORMAL*
difficulty setting which is what most people will probably play this game on.
With the release of the HD Trilogy set for both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation
3 I have added information that can be used on the higher difficulties so you
can obtain the Achievements and Trophies related to them.

This guide is also designed to to allow you to get Silent Assassin ratings
and acquire all weapons. This guide also goes over console differences and
other technical data. As of early 2013 "Silent Assassin" is now available on
six different platforms.

This guide was also written while using the Xpadder keyboard-to-joypad
mapping program for the PC version and may incorporate strategies that may
only work with this setup. If any of these strategies don't work with the
standard keyboard/mouse configuration then feel free to write me about it.

I have worked hard to make sure that this guide is as complete as possible 
but at the same time leave room for exploration. I hope that you enjoy this
guide as much as learn from it.

During the construction of this guide I used the following user created FAQ
for additional reference:

  >>"Hitman 2 Perfect Silent Assassin Walkthrough V2.04" - by Jason Carl.
    *********************************************************************
      I had used an earlier version of his guide years ago when I was playing 
      around with the other versions of this game looking for different ideas 
      to play with. Some of his strategies are presented in this guide but I 
      have tried to add my own observations and to make them better. I will 
      be referring to him and his work frequently during this guide.

"Hitman 2: Silent Assassin" is the second game that features the now-popular
protagonist known as Agent 47, a clone designed for assassination work. The
game was released in 2002 for the PC, Sony PlayStation 2, MicroSoft Xbox, and
Nintendo GameCube. This was the first "Hitman" installment that made it onto
the dedicated gaming consoles.

The gameplay is a little different from "Codename 47" being that it relies a
lot more on stealth than on gunplay. The mapping is far more useful too and
becomes a very important part of strategy.

I got into the "Hitman" games because of the PS2 demo of "Silent Assassin"
which was made available during the summer of 2002. I decided to load up the
demo because I was kind of bored while waiting for "Grand Theft Auto: Vice
City" to be released (fall of 2002).

But I did not expect the awesome music that graced my ears when I got to the
main menu. A fantastic orchestral piece that blew my mind. I would just let
the game sit on the menu screen so I could listen to this piece repeatedly.
After awhile I finally got into the demo and I also became impressed by the
gameplay and additional music.

From that point I became a fan of "Hitman". And it was the first time that I
got into a game series because of the music. The music was done by Jesper
Kyd, a fantastic musician who I was initially exposed to from the Sega
DreamCast game "MDK2". I now own the scores to all four "Hitman" games (and
the score to the oft-maligned "Hitman" movie - by Geoff Zanelli).

When I started writing guides I always wanted to do the "Hitman" series.
However, I wanted to start with the first game, "Codename 47". But the game
was never released outside of the PC platform. This created a problem because
I am a Mac user and it was never released there either.

I was aware that some of the missions from "Codename 47" were remade for
"Contracts" but that wasn't the same. As I was playing "Blood Money" I was
actually writing a guide in my head but it never came out because I wasn't
able to do a guide on the first game.

In 2010 I finally obtained a suitable PC and was able to play "Codename 47".
I would also start writing guides for it and all of the other "Hitman" games.
This guide was originally written covering all of the platforms it appeared
on at the time. In early 2013 IO Interactive released the HD Trilogy set for
the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 thus initiating a major revision covering
differences plus Achievements and Trophies.

One annoyance concerning this game. No matter what version I play it never
saves your Invert Up-Down Aim options - I have to reset them every time I
boot the game up.

Other than being released on gaming consoles there are major differences
between this game and its predecessor, "Codename 47":

  >>Real Time Mapping
    *****************
      In "Silent Assassin" you have real time mapping that will allow you to 
      track targets from afar before making your move. This didn't exist in 
      "Codename 47".

  >>Stealth Based Scoring
    *********************
      In "Codename 47" you were scored based on money. As long as you didn't 
      kill Civilians and Police, which will dock some of your pay, then you 
      could pretty much kill with impunity.

      In "Silent Assassin" you are scored very differently and this forces 
      you to be more stealthy to acquire the best score.

  >>Guard Sensitivity
    *****************
      In "Codename 47" the Guards were pretty laid back. You can run all 
      around them without them getting suspicious as long as you were dressed 
      for the area.

      In "Silent Assassin" you have to be careful when running around Guards 
      and they can be pretty twitchy at times (especially on certain 
      missions).

  >>Weapons Acquisition
    *******************
      In "Codename 47" you can only purchase weapons at the beginning of a 
      mission and couldn't carry them over except in certain chapters. The 
      same applied for weapons you find during a mission.

      In "Silent Assassin" you don't buy weapons - you aren't even given 
      money to purchase anything. You are given a few weapons to start out 
      with and you acquire new weapons by taking them from the missions you 
      play. You can even acquire some weapons by earning "Silent Assassin" 
      ratings.

  >>Non-Lethal Disposal
    *******************
      In "Codename 47" the only way to dispose of someone was to kill them. 
      In "Silent Assassin" you have the Anaesthetic which will allow you to 
      put a person to sleep instead of Killing them. In addition, you can
      pistolwhip someone when they get close enough.

Listed in this chapter is technical data that I've compiled on the various
versions of the game:

The PS2 version has a button dedicated to running, a trait that it shares
with the PC, Xbox 360, and PS3 versions. The PS2 version also has some extra
movies that advertise additional games from Eidos. Unlike the other console
versions you can use cheat discs and other programs with this game:

  >>Xploder HDTV Player
    *******************
      This product will allow you to view your games in progressive scan, 
      usually in 480p. However, this product will *NOT* work with this game.

  >>GS Mode Selector
    ****************
      This is a small program that is used with the memory card exploit known 
      as Free McBoot. Like with HDTV Viewer you can also view games in 
      progressive scan using this program.

      Unlike with HDTV Viewer, though, this game will work with this program. 
      However, the demo movie that plays when you leave the game sitting at 
      the main menu for too long will crash the system when it tries to play.

      One bonus is that you can use this program in conjunction with both 
      HDLoader and Open PS2 Loader - something you cannot do with Xploder 
      HDTV Viewer.

  >>HDLoader
    ********
      The main reason most people use the Free McBoot memory card exploit is 
      to use this program which will allow you to play games off of the hard 
      drive if you use a PS2 "Fatty" or an early model PS2 "Slim" that has 
      been modified to use a HDD.

      Once the game is installed then you need to make a couple of tweaks to 
      its compatibility settings before you start playing. After installing 
      it onto the HDD, highlight the game on the Game List menu and press 
      SELECT. This will bring up the Game Compatibility Settings. It will 
      look like this:

        Slow HDD access:                 No
        Disable DVD9 support:            No
        Kill HDL After launch:           No
        Date/timefix 2:                  No
        Date/timefix 3:                  No
        Disable network support:         No
        Disable CzC patch:               No
        Soul Calibur 2 / Suikoden V:     No

      As you can see all of the default settings are set to "No". You need to 
      make the following changes to make sure that the game works perfectly 
      with HDLoader:

        Slow HDD access:                YES <----------
        Disable DVD9 support:            No
        Kill HDL After launch:           No
        Date/timefix 2:                 YES <----------
        Date/timefix 3:                  No
        Disable network support:         No
        Disable CzC patch:               No
        Soul Calibur 2 / Suikoden V:     No

      Slowing down HDD access will fix sound issues with the game (removing 
      static-like sounds during cutscenes and gameplay). The Date/timefix 
      setting will fix the timestamp on your game saves so that it matches 
      the clock settings.

      Killing HDL after launch will cause the game to crash if you leave the 
      game sitting at the main menu for too long and it tries to load the 
      demo movie. However, if you leave the game sitting at the main menu for 
      too long, and it does the demo movie several times, then it may crash 
      anyway (about fifteen minutes).

  >>Open PS2 Loader
    ***************
      This program is meant to replace HDLoader and is more solid than HDL. 
      You use this in place of HDL and it will recognize the HDD and all the 
      games you have already installed. OPL, or "Opal" as I like to call it, 
      has its own compatibility modes for games and won't recognize the 
      settings used in HDL.

      Based on the time I have spent with Opal I have found that you need to 
      make one change with the compatibility modes for this game. Highlight 
      the game on the Game List menu and select Game Settings. There are 
      eight modes that you can tweak to make your game run better. By default 
      they are all set to OFF.

      You need to change Mode 6 to ON. Mode 6 disables something called In 
      Game Reset where you can actually go back to the main menu of Opal 
      without having to turn off the machine by means of holding down certain 
      buttons together. If you leave it off then the game will randomly crash 
      during gameplay.

      Right beneath the mode settings there is something called DMA Mode. 
      This has something to do with the hard disk access speed. As noted with 
      HDLoader you needed to change the access speed to correct static-like 
      sounds. You do not need to tweak this setting for Opal.

Although I now have an older Backwards Compatibility PlayStation 3 I do not
have any information on how the game runs due to the machine dying on me
before I could do any tests.

| B. GameCube Version |~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~\
0+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+0+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+0

Because the GameCube controller has fewer buttons than the other console
controllers there is also no run button for this version. All movement,
walking and running, is controlled by the Left Analog Stick. In addition, the
GameCube version does not support progressive scan for those fortunate to
have the earlier version of the GameCube that has the Digital A/V port and
use of the special GameCube Component Video cable.

On the Japan snow levels the frame rate slows a little bit but it is not too
bad.

| C. Xbox Version |~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~\
0+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+0+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+0

Because the Xbox controller is configured differently than the PS2's there is
no dedicated run button. All movement, walking and running, is controlled by
the Left Analog Stick. Loading up from the DVD-ROM drive is slower and it is
one of the few Xbox games that does not support progressive scan for
Component Video usage.

There is also a glitch that may occur concerning the game saves. At the end
of the game the save may become corrupted and your stats will have some
extraordinary numbers and the Stealth and Aggression lines will be glitched.
This only affects your overall score but doesn't keep you from playing the
game.

Finally, the Xbox version is *NOT* supported on the now aborted Backwards
Compatibility feature on the Xbox 360.

Although the Xbox 360's controller is similar to the one for the Original
Xbox it has a dedicated run button. You can install the game to either the
hard drive or USB flash drive for faster loading. You can also play the game
in high resolution putting it on par with the PC version. You can earn
Achievements which will force you to play the game in certain ways if you
want to acquire them.

One annoyance to this version is the lousy sound encoding. When the music
reaches a loud crescendo then it will start to sound rough - like a bad tape
recording. Considering how awesome the music is this is like greasy
fingerprints on a great piece of artwork.

An interesting observation to the sound - you can now hear conversations that
you couldn't listen to on any other version - even if you are all the way on
the other side of the floor. It's like 47 gained some kind of superhuman
hearing.

**IMPORTANT: The "Redemption at Gontranno" game save that is created at the 
             end of the game will erase all of your stats and reduce your 
             overall rank to Specialist. If you wish to keep your stats and 
             improve upon them then use the "Redemption" game save that is 
             created at the beginning of the mission instead.

             When you use this save then you will automatically go into the 
             mission instead of the standard Briefing Screen. Quit when the 
             mission starts to return to the Main Title screen then Start > 
             Current Game to bring up the list of completed missions.

Unlike with the Xbox 360 version you can't install the game to either the
hard drive or external devices. But the sound encoding is much better on this
platform which resolves the "bad tape recording" problem that plagued the
Xbox 360 version. And there are also Trophies to be earned (which are the
same ones that are in the Xbox 360 version).

The PC version has several graphic resolutions and other attributes that can
be accessed and adjusted in the Configure option that appears in the window
that comes up in the center of your Windows desktop when you put in your
"Hitman 2" disc (thanks to M.A.K. from GTA Forums for pointing that out).
800x600 is the default resolution.

In addition, if you're running this game on a very fast machine, you should
activate the P5 Glove in the Configure option or the game will run too fast
to be playable.

If you load up a game save and it runs too fast even though you activated the
P5 Glove this may be because you transferred a game save from one operating
system to another or one hard drive to another. In this case you may need to
redo your entire game from scratch.

There is a lot more sound than with the console versions and of better
quality. Because of the keyboard/mouse setup the controls are more complex.
The use of Xpadder helps to make the game easier to play if you prefer a
joypad.

Zoom Mode is more sensitive but this is mainly due to it using the mouse
instead of a joypad. The PC version also has a dedicated running button which
makes it easier when trying to move around missions faster.

I've also noticed that the Pistols seem less powerful than on the console
versions. There are also a couple of other differences and I will note them
as I go further into the guide.

Being that "Silent Assassin" was released in 2002, current PCs and Laptops
should have no problem running the game regardless of graphical resolution
and sound. Even on old machines, seven years and older, it runs very well.
One of my PCs, the Optiplex GX270, came out in 2004, two years after release
of the game and exceeds the maximum specs that the title was designed around.

The integrated graphics processor (IGP) for the GX270 is the Intel(R) 82865G
Graphics Controller and was aimed more towards businesses since that is what
the machine was initially designed for. So this IGP isn't geared toward
gaming and is considered fairly weak.

This guide was written at 800x600 resolution and before I was told about
being able to change resolutions. Under this resolution the game runs very
well. When changed to 1024x768 there is a very slight amount of graphical
choppiness so this game does push the IGP a little bit.

When using a dedicated video card it runs excellently in all resolutions. It
is not necessary to use a video card on older machines but it will help.

[1] - Mousewheel Up/Down will also work.

[2] - You can lean extra far by double tapping the Lean button and hold it. 
      Personally, though, I don't use the Lean function. I prefer careful 
      character placement and use of the Camera for my strategies.

[3] - Hold down while using any of the movement keys to run.

[4] - Hold down to crouch.

[5] - This is used to open doors, pick up an item, drag bodies, etc.

[6] - You can cycle through available weapons by tapping the key repeatedly.

[7] - Press once to Holster weapon and press again to bring it back out. 
      Rifles will be dropped.

      Hold down the key to bring up a quick weapon inventory. Scroll down to 
      highlight the weapon you want and release the key to bring it out.

If the default keyboard configurations do not work for you then you can
change the configuration to whatever you so desire.

| E. Xpadder (PC Version) |~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~\
0+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+0+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+0

After playing through all of the console versions of "Hitman" I found that I
could not play the PC version of this game with the keyboard/mouse control
setup. And there are no official drivers to allow you to play the game with a
joypad.

Thankfully a programmer named Jonathan Firth wrote a program called Xpadder
that will allow you to map keyboard commands to a joypad. I used the Xbox 360
joypad for this game and I configured it to be as close as possible to the
layout used for the Xbox 360 version of this game.

The current version of Xpadder is V5.7 which you have to pay money for. The
version I am using right now is V5.3 which is the last freeware version and
what most people probably have.

Listed below is the recommended layout for using Xpadder with this game
(using the default keyboard settings) for both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 2
and 3 controllers. This setup will also work with the sequel "Contracts" with
no changes whatsoever:

When setting up your Xpadder profile go under the Mouse Settings and set both
sliders under the Emulation Speed window to 130.

Within the game then set the Mouse Speed setting from 17 to 20. If you've
done everything correctly then, when you spin either right or left, you
should spin pretty fast but not extremely fast. From here then set the speed
setting
downward to something more comfortable. It is also recommended to Invert the
Up/Down Aim.

The Run command is placed above the Left Analog Stick so it will make for
much easier navigation when running. Hold down the Run button with your left
index finger while pushing up on the Left Analog Stick with your left thumb.
Then use the Right Analog Stick for navigation.

Do *NOT* use the Cursor Keys for selecting menu items. Use the Mousewheel
Up/Down instead. The Cursor Keys do not work with Sniper Rifle zooming. The
Mousewheel will work for both menu item selection and Sniper Rifle zooming.
To enter Sniper Mode then Fire Weapon once. To exit Sniper Mode then tap
Inventory.

To start a new game select Start then select a difficulty level: Normal,
Expert, and Professional.

The difficulty determines how much damage you can take, the number of Guards
during missions, their accuracy and sensitivity, the visibility of people on
the in-game Map, and the number of in-mission saves you can make. An
in-mission save is a save you can make while in the middle of one thus
allowing you to do different things at certain points within a mission.

Listed below are the differences between difficulties:

0===========================================================================0
| Normal       | --The Guards have normal sensitivity and you can take a    |
|              |   lot of damage in combat.                                 |
|              | --Everything and everyone appears on the in-game Map.      |
|              | --The maximum number of in-mission saves is seven.         |
|--------------+------------------------------------------------------------|
| Expert       | --The Guards have increased sensitivity and are tougher to |
|              |   kill.                                                    |
|              | --You take increased damage in combat thus making you      |
|              |   easier to kill.                                          |
|              | --Everything and everyone appears on the in-game Map.      |
|              | --The maximum number of in-mission saves is three.         |
|--------------+------------------------------------------------------------|
| Professional | --The Guards are even more sensitive, and are more tough   |
|              |   to kill, than they were at Expert. Certain strategies    |
|              |   that can be used at the easier difficulties may not work |

When you want to start a mission then go over to your computer in the Garden
Shed. It will then display the Continue Game prompt in the upper left corner
of the screen. Press the Multiple Use button to start the next mission. This
will start the Mission Briefing.

Here you will get a general outline of your objectives and details of the
mission at hand. You will be given Additional Files that will assist you.
They are usually Photos, Maps, and Video. You will also be given the option
to redo any previously completed missions. Select Continue to move onto the
next screen.

Here you will be given the list of available weapons you can use on the
mission. Select the weapons you want to use then Continue to start the
mission.

But, before I go any further, I need to go over.....

Weapons are the tools of the trade for any professional contractor. There are
many different weapons that can be used to perform your work. There are also
additional items that are useful. Unlike with "Codename 47" you do not
purchase weapons in this game. You acquire weapons through the missions you
complete.

To keep a weapon you find you must have it with you when you complete a
mission. They will then be available to you within your Tool Shed along with
appropriate ammo. You can then use these weapons on new missions and on
replays of previous levels.

In the major chapters of the game you will often go into the next mission
instead of going back to the Tool Shed. You can go back to the Tool Shed
after completion of the last mission of the chapter. When you go into a
mission instead of going back to the Tool Shed then you will bring any
weapons that you have acquired along the way including any large weapons such
as the SVD Sniper.

You can drop any weapon you acquired in the previous mission in the next one.
Since you had it with you when you left the previous mission then it is
permanently added to your weapons collection and you can leave it behind
without penalty.

However, by dropping any weapon, even those you bring with you from the Tool
Shed, like the 9mm Pistol, then it will *NOT* be in your Inventory Menu when
you begin the next mission in the chapter (but it will still be available in
the Tool Shed when you are allowed to return).

In the case of the Anaesthetic if you use up all of your doses in the
previous mission then you will have only one dose to use in the next. This
can be annoying if you need to use two doses in the upcoming mission.

In addition, you can acquire three weapons by earning Silent Assassin
ratings. Also, there are a couple of weapons and items that you will always
carry with you regardless. You can get more information on a weapon by
opening the Inventory Menu.

Although you can find clips of ammo to use on various weapons during the
course of a mission you can also refill your ammo by picking up a weapon of
the same type. If you have a 9mm Pistol then you can add to your ammo by
picking up another 9mm Pistol or 9mm Pistol SD.

You can also increase the ammo for a weapon even if you pick up different
weapon as long it is in the same class. For example, you can increase the
ammo for the 9mm Pistol by picking up .54 Pistol since it is also a pistol
and they share the same ammo.

Finally, if you own the Xbox 360 or PS3 versions then you can earn multiple
Accomplishments for collecting all of the weapons in the game.

The information on each weapon and item is broken down as follows (if
applicable):

| Melee Weapons \
0============================================================>

  These weapons are the most silent weapons to use. However, you need to get 
  up behind a person for them to be most effective.

  One annoying thing about most melee weapons is that they only work on 
  people. You can smack somebody upside the head with a Fire Axe but you 
  cannot break a simple window with it. When you try to break something with 
  a melee weapon all it will do is go through it. However, that can be an 
  advantage in certain situations.

    >>Anaesthetic
      ===========
        Missions: Tunnel Rat
                  Terminal Hospitality
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------
        Notes: This non-lethal weapon is available from the beginning 
               although it can be found in a couple of missions. Basically 
               this weapon is a small bottle and a rag. As you prepare the 
               weapon then you will see 47 dab the rag with the Anaesthetic 
               then hold it above his head.

               When you attack then you will put the rag over the victim's 
               mouth and pull him to the ground. Hold down the Fire Button to 
               continue to use the Anaesthetic.

               Under the ammo counter you will see five small bottles. The 
               more bottles you use, the longer your victim stay unconscious. 
               You automatically stop when you use up all five bottles.

               You have a minimum of ten bottles broken into groups of five 
               thus giving you two full complete doses to use during a 
               mission. On some missions during your initial run-through you 
               can have a minimum of three full doses. On mission replays you 
               will start with no more than two full doses.

               One disadvantage to this weapon is that it takes a long time 
               to bring out the weapon so you must take that into 
               consideration when trying to Sneak up on someone.

               Another problem is that, even if you use a full dose on 
               someone, it will *NOT* keep them out for an entire mission. 
               You have about four to five minutes before the victim wakes up 
               so you must be quick in your work.

    >>Fiber Wire
      ==========
        Notes: This is a specially made weapon using a very strong fiber 
               wire. Its main use is to strangulate your victim from behind.

               The best feature about this weapon is that, because you are 
               strangulating your victim, he will not make any noise as you 
               are attacking him. Another feature is that it will not trigger 
               metal detectors.

               This weapon is available from the beginning and will always be 
               taken with you so you will always have a weapon to use. The 
               main drawback to using this weapon is that it takes time to 
               kill your victim during which you are vulnerable to being 
               seen.

    >>Kitchen Knife
      =============
        Missions: Anathema
                  Invitation to a Party
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------
        Notes: This is a large kitchen knife which is available from the 
               beginning. Its main use is to quickly and quietly stab someone 
               or slit their throat.

               In real life slitting a throat will leave behind quite a mess 
               as your victim bleeds out all over the place. However, this 
               isn't an issue as your victim just drops bloodlessly to the 
               ground.

               This is a good up-close weapon because you can quickly kill a 
               person and Holster the weapon before anybody can become 
               suspicious. Another thing to note about the use of the Knife 
               is the attack movements you make when using it.

               When you press the Attack button then you will stab forward. 
               Press it again and you will do an arching clockwise backhand. 
               Do it a third time and you will do a right hook with the 
               weapon. Do it a fourth time and you will stab forward again. 
               This particular information is useful on one mission.

    >>Combat Knife
      ============
        Missions: Tubeway Torpedo
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------
        Notes: This is a smaller combat specific knife that is used exactly 
               the same way as the Kitchen Knife.

    >>Scalpel
      =======
        Missions: Terminal Hospitality
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------
        Notes: This is a standard surgical blade that behaves like a knife. 
               However, I think it is a quieter weapon to use when slashing 
               throats so you may want to bring this as an alternative to the 
               Fiber Wire.

    >>Golf Club
      =========
        Missions: Anathema
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------
        Notes: Just a regular golf club. Mainly used to bash in somebody's 
               head but not a very effective weapon overall. Also cannot be 
               concealed.

    >>Katana Sword
      ============
        Missions: Hidden Valley
                  At the Gates
                  Shogun Showdown
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------
        Notes: A large Japanese style sword. A decent melee weapon that is 
               used like the Fire Axe but cannot be concealed. Also looks 
               damn good when displayed on the wall.

    >>Fire Axe
      ========
        Missions: Basement Killing
                  The Graveyard Shift
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------
        Notes: A large axe used by firemen. A fairly effective weapon but, 
               like the previous two weapons listed, cannot be concealed.

0========0
| Pistols \
0============================================================>

  These easily concealable weapons can take down people from a distance. 
  However, most of them tend to make a lot of noise which will attract 
  unwanted attention.

    >>Silverballer .45 (Baller)
      =========================
        Based on: .45 ACP Colt M1911.
        Magazine Capacity: 7 rounds.
        Maximum Ammo: 91 rounds.
        Uses .45 ACP.
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------
        Notes: This semi-automatic pistol packs a punch but has a small 
               magazine. This weapon is always dual wielded. This also means 
               that when you fire once you will use two shots. Because of the 
               power of this weapon you can cause bodies to go flying. This 
               can cause problems if you knock the body into the view of a 
               Guard.

               This weapon is considered the signature handgun of the 
               "Hitman" series and is available from the beginning.

    >>Silverballer .45 Suppressed (Ballers SD)
      ========================================
        Notes: This is the exact same weapon as above but silenced. You 
               acquire this weapon when you earn your first Silent Assassin 
               rating.

    >>9mm Pistol
      ==========
        Missions: Anathema
                  St. Petersburg Stakeout
                  Kirov Park Meeting
                  Tubeway Torpedo
                  Invitation to a Party
                  Tracking Hayamoto
                  The Graveyard Shift
                  The Jacuzzi Job
                  Murder at the Bazaar
                  Temple City Ambush
                  The Death of Hannelore
                  Redemption at Gontranno
        Based on: Beretta 92FS.
        Magazine Capacity: 15 rounds.
        Maximum Ammo: 105 rounds.
        Uses: Pistol Ammo.
        --------------------------------------------------------------------- 
        Notes: This very common weapon has a much larger magazine than the 
               Baller. It is also more accurate, uses one bullet instead of 
               two, and won't cause bodies to fly around when you kill 
               somebody. This weapon also sounds a little less loud as well.

    >>9mm Pistol SD
      =============
        Missions: Anathema
                  Kirov Park Meeting
                  Invitation to a Party
                  The Graveyard Shift
                  Temple City Ambush
                  The Death of Hannelore
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------
        Notes: This is the exact same weapon as the 9mm Pistol but is 
               silenced. This is easily the best pistol to bring with you 
               because of its accuracy, silence, and that the un-silenced 
               version can be found in most missions. In addition, you are 
               given this weapon automatically when you start the mission 
               "Anathema".

    >>Deagle .50 (Deagle)
      ===================
        Missions: Anathema
                  Tubeway Torpedo
                  Shogun Showdown
                  Tunnel Rat
                  Temple City Ambush
                  Terminal Hospitality
                  St. Petersburg Revisited
        Based on: Desert Eagle Mark XIX.
        Magazine Capacity: 8 rounds.
        Maximum Ammo: 112 rounds.
        Uses: Mag. Ammo.
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------
        Notes: This gun has the largest caliber of ammunition of all of the 
               handguns making it very powerful. Unfortunately, it also makes 
               it very loud and you will attract unwanted guests in hurry. 
               And it has a nasty kick which makes it hard to accurately fire 
               off a quick burst of rounds.

    >>Stub-Nosed .357 Revolver (Revolver)
      ===================================
        Missions: Anathema
                  The Jacuzzi Job
                  Murder at the Bazaar
                  Temple City Ambush
        Based on: Snub-Nose Colt Python.
        Magazine Capacity: 6 rounds.
        Maximum Ammo: 102 rounds.
        Uses: Mag. Ammo.
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------
        Notes: A small easily concealable handgun that packs quite a punch in 
               close quarters.

    >>5.45mm Pistol (.54 Pistol)
      ==========================
        Missions: St. Petersburg Stakeout
                  Invitation to a Party
        Based on: KBP PSM.
        Magazine Capacity: 10 rounds.
        Maximum Ammo: 106 rounds.
        Uses: Pistol Ammo.
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------
        Notes: A small Russian service pistol. Likely about the same power as 
               the 9mm Pistol but sounds a little less loud.

    >>.22 Suppressed (.22 SD)
      =======================
        Missions: Shogun Showdown
        Based on: Ruger MK II.
        Magazine Capacity: 10 rounds.
        Maximum Ammo: 96 rounds.
        Uses: .22 Ammo.
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------
        Notes: A rather unusual handgun. A small caliber pistol with a 
               built-in silencer. But it is also made out of materials that 
               won't set off metal detectors. Not very powerful, or even 
               accurate from medium to long distance, but it does make for an 
               interesting addition to your weapons collection.

0=================0
| Sub-Machine Guns \
0============================================================>

  These easily concealable weapons can clear out an area of bad guys in a 
  hurry.

    >>Uzi 9mm (Uzi)
      =============
        Missions: Terminal Hospitality
        Based on: IMI Uzi.
        Magazine Capacity: 30 rounds.
        Maximum Ammo: 150 rounds.
        Uses: SMG Ammo.
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------
        Notes: This weapon has a decent rate of fire but tends to be 
               inaccurate at anything beyond medium distance. Short, 
               controlled bursts will help you to conserve ammo.

    >>Sub Machine Gun (SMG)
      =====================
        Missions: Invitation to a Party
                  Tracking Hayamoto
                  Temple City Ambush
                  Terminal Hospitality
                  Redemption at Gontranno
        Based on: Heckler & Koch MP5.
        Magazine Capacity: 30 rounds.
        Maximum Ammo: 180 rounds.
        Uses: SMG Ammo.
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------
        Notes: This weapon is better than the Uzi because it is more accurate 
               and has a better rate of fire.

    >>Silenced SMG (SMG-SD6)
      ======================
        Missions: Hidden Valley
                  At the Gates
                  Shogun Showdown
                  Temple City Ambush
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------
        Notes: This weapon is exact same weapon as the SMG but it is 
               silenced. However, because of the silencer, this weapon cannot 
               be concealed.

0===============0
| Assault Rifles \
0============================================================>

  These large machine guns will be useful in medium to long distance 
  firefights but cannot be concealed. Care must be taken when carrying these 
  things around lest you blow your cover (unless you are properly disguised).

    >>AK Assault Rifle (AK)
      =====================
        Missions: St. Petersburg Stakeout
                  Kirov Park Meeting
                  Tubeway Torpedo
                  Murder at the Bazaar
                  The Motorcade Interception
                  Tunnel Rat
                  The Death of Hannelore
                  Terminal Hospitality
        Based on: Kalashnikov AKS-74U.
        Magazine Capacity: 30 rounds.
        Maximum Ammo: 120 rounds.
        Uses: 5.56mm Ammo.
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------
        Notes: This Russian made weapon is by far the most popular weapon in 
               the world owing to the fact that it is the most rugged, 
               durable, and reliable machine gun of its kind. However, the 
               loose tolerances that allow the weapon to be so durable also 
               makes it inaccurate at long distances.

    >>M4 Rifle (M4)
      =============
        Missions: The Motorcade Interception
        Based on: Colt M4A1.
        Magazine Capacity: 30 rounds.
        Maximum Ammo: 120 rounds.
        Uses: 5.56mm Ammo.
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------
        Notes: Although this weapon appears in one mission the best way to 
               acquire it is to earn a Silent Assassin rating on all four of 
               the St. Petersburg missions:

                 --St. Petersburg Stakeout
                 --Kirov Park Meeting
                 --Tubeway Torpedo
                 --Invitation to a Party

               This assault rifle is a better machine gun than the AK due to 
               a faster rate of fire and much higher accuracy.

0=========0
| Shotguns \
0============================================================>

  These weapons are very powerful in close combat situations. However, they 
  are very noisy, weak in medium to long range combat, and cannot be 
  concealed (except for one). Generally I tend to stay away from these 
  weapons for those reasons.

    >>Double-Barreled Shotgun (Shotgun)
      =================================
        Missions: Anathema
        Based on: Savage/Stevens 311A.
        Magazine Capacity: 2 rounds.
        Maximum Ammo: 22 rounds.
        Uses: Shotgun Ammo.
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------
        Notes: This large double barreled weapon can fire off two quick shots 
               before reloading. But reloading takes valuable time which can 
               be crucial in a firefight.

    >>Sawn-Off Shotgun (Sawn-Off)
      ===========================
        Notes: This is the exact same weapon as above except that it has most 
               of the barrels sawn off thus allowing you to conceal it. You 
               acquire this weapon when you earn your second Silent Assassin 
               rating.

    >>SP12 Shotgun (SP12)
      ===================
        Missions: Temple City Ambush
                  St. Petersburg Revisited
                  Redemption at Gontranno
        Based on: Franchi SPAS-12.
        Magazine Capacity: 8 rounds.
        Maximum Ammo: 28 rounds.
        Uses: Shotgun Ammo.
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------
        Notes: This weapon is the precursor of the more famous S.P.A.S 12 
               shotgun featured in games like "Grand Theft Auto: Vice City". 
               Packs the same punch as the above weapons but has the distinct 
               advantage of being able to fire multiple rounds before 
               reloading. Speaking of reloading, it is the fastest reloader 
               of the three Shotguns.

0==============0
| Sniper Rifles \
0============================================================>

  These weapons are used to kill people from long distance. They are best 
  used when way out of sight distance so you don't get discovered when taking 
  down someone.

  To use a Sniper Rifle press the Fire button to bring up the scope then use 
  the D-Pad or Mousewheel to go through the three levels of zoom. Then press 
  Fire again to fire the weapon. You will notice that your scope will bob up 
  and down. The more you sit still, the more it will stabilize. This is 
  important to know so you can make a good shot at someones head.

  It is also important to know that you can shoot through more than one 
  target with most of these weapons. In addition, all of these weapons appear 
  to have the same range of effectiveness. Finally, when you do a mission 
  replay with a Sniper Rifle then you will be given a full clip of ammo. 
  However, the amount of the ammo will vary depending on the weapon.

  For example, if you bring the Crossbow or W2000 Sniper then you will be 
  given only one round in addition to the one already in the chamber. If you 
  bring either the SVD Sniper or the Custom Rifle then you will be given more 
  ammo.

    >>Hunting Crossbow (Crossbow)
      ===========================
        Missions: Hidden Valley
        Magazine Capacity: 1 round.
        Maximum Ammo: 33 rounds.
        Uses: Crossbow Bolts.
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------
        Notes: This is not a Sniper Rifle per se but it works exactly as one. 
               Because there is no muzzle flash, and therefore no noise, it 
               is the most silent ranged weapon in the game.

               However, you need to shoot the target in the head to make it a 
               one shot kill otherwise you will just piss him off. This is 
               because you are using arrows which is less damaging unless you 
               hit the target in the appropriate spot.

               In addition, it takes a long time to reload which makes you 
               very vulnerable. And, finally, it is the largest weapon in the 
               game which makes it very hard to go around un-noticed.

    >>R93 Sniper
      ==========
        Missions: Anathema
                  Temple City Ambush
                  Terminal Hospitality
        Based on: Blaser R93 LRS2.
        Magazine Capacity: 6 rounds.
        Maximum Ammo: 36 rounds.
        Uses: Sniper Ammo.
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------
        Notes: This is a basic rifle that has a six round magazine.

    >>SVD Sniper
      ==========
        Missions: St. Petersburg Stakeout
                  Kirov Park Meeting
                  Murder at the Bazaar
                  St. Petersburg Revisited
                  Redemption at Gontranno
        Based on: SVD Dragunov.
        Magazine Capacity: 10 rounds.
        Maximum Ammo: 40 rounds.
        Uses: Sniper Ammo.
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------
        Notes: This Russian made rifle has a larger magazine than the R93 
               Sniper.

    >>MI95 Sniper (MI95)
      ==================
        Missions: The Motorcade Interception
        Based on: Barrett M95.
        Magazine Capacity: 6 rounds.
        Maximum Ammo: 26 rounds.
        Uses: .50 Cal Ammo.
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------
        Notes: This is considered one of the most powerful Sniper Rifles in 
               the world. It is capable of shooting through engine blocks of 
               vehicles which can disable them. Imagine what this can do to a 
               human target.

               It is important to note that the game considers this to be 
               both a Sniper Rifle *AND* a Heavy Weapon (because of its 
               enormous power).

    >>W2000 Sniper (W2000 Rifle)
      ==========================
        Missions: Invitation to a Party
                  St. Petersburg Revisited
        Based on: Walther WA2000 Sniper.
        Magazine Capacity: 1 round.
        Maximum Ammo: 31 rounds.
        Uses: Sniper Ammo.
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------
        Notes: Only 176 of these rifles were ever made because it was too 
               expensive to achieve widespread sales of the weapon. This 
               makes it a rare and valuable collectable.

               This weapon has been weakened a bit from the one used in 
               "Codename 47" in that you can only fire one shot at a time 
               before reloading. This weapon is considered the signature 
               Sniper Rifle of the "Hitman" games.

    >>W2000 Custom Sniper (Custom Rifle)
      ==================================
        Missions: Hidden Valley
                  At the Gates
                  Redemption at Gontranno
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------
        Notes: This is the exact same weapon as above except that it has a 
               multi round magazine, a larger scope, and a silencer. 
               Considering that the game says that only a few of these rifles 
               exist and that the W2000 is already rare one has to wonder how 
               the bad guys managed to get so many of them.

0==============0
| Heavy Weapons \
0============================================================>

  Other than the MI95 Sniper there is only one other weapon that falls into 
  this category.

    >>M60 Light MG (M60)
      ==================
        Missions: The Motorcade Interception
                  Tunnel Rat
        Based on: M60E3.
        Magazine Capacity: 100 rounds.
        Maximum Ammo: 300 rounds.
        Uses: MG Ammo.
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------
        Notes: The M60 is a very powerful belt fed large machine gun that 
               normally is handled by two people - one to fire and one to 
               handle the ammo belt.

               However, in this game, you handle it just like any machine 
               gun. It is about as accurate than the M4 and is certainly more 
               powerful although it has a slower rate of fire than an assault 
               rifle.

               The only major drawback to this weapon is that it is pretty 
               loud so expect more Guards to come calling if you use it.

  >>Car Bomb
    ********
      Used during: Kirov Park Meeting.
      -----------------------------------------------------------------------
      Notes: This is a bomb that is planted on a vehicle and will be 
             detonated when it is started.

  >>Phone and Pager
    ***************
      Used during: Tubeway Torpedo.
      -----------------------------------------------------------------------
      Notes: This is used to lure somebody. You drop the Pager somewhere and 
             you use the Phone to call it and whoever listens to the Pager 
             will come to it to find out where the noise is coming from.

  >>Mini-Bomb and Bomb Remote
    *************************
      Used during: Tubeway Torpedo.
      -----------------------------------------------------------------------
      Notes: This is a bomb that is remote detonated. It is not very big but 
             is powerful enough to blow open a hole in a wall.

  >>Transmitter
    ***********
      Used during: Tracking Hayamoto.
      -----------------------------------------------------------------------
      Notes: It is a very tiny device that can be used to track someone.

  >>Bomb and Bomb Remote
    ********************
      Used during: Shogun Showdown.
      -----------------------------------------------------------------------
      Notes: This is just like the one you used in "Tubeway Torpedo" but 
             packs a much bigger bang.

  >>Hacking Device
    **************
      Used during: The Graveyard Shift.
      -----------------------------------------------------------------------
      Notes: This is used to help break into somebody's computer.

Many weapons can appear in more than one mission. A weapon that may be hard
to get in one mission can be had far more easily in another. In this

situations:

| Lockpick    | This item is a permanent part of your inventory and will    |
|             | allow you to open most locked doors and gates. More details |

|-------------+-------------------------------------------------------------|
| Binoculars  | This item is a permanent part of your inventory and will    |
|             | allow you to scope out areas before proceeding. When        |
|             | activated you use the Up and Down buttons to zoom in and    |
|             | out.                                                        |
|-------------+-------------------------------------------------------------|
| Nightvision | This will allow you to see in the dark but your view is     |
| Goggles     | restricted. It is like walking around while looking through |
|             | a sniper scope. This item is found on some missions.        |

 \=========================================================================/

Your Main Screen is where all of the action in "Silent Assassin" take place.
In the center of your screen is Agent 47. You use the joypad (PS2, PS3, Xbox,
Xbox 360, GameCube) or keyboard/mouse - Xpadder/joypad (PC) to move him
around and manipulate the Camera.

In the upper left corner of the Main Screen is where your Health Bar (which
shows your current health), the Threat Meter (which shows your stress level),
and the Compass is displayed. When you are near certain objects, like doors
and other items, then your available actions are displayed just to the right
of the Health/Threat Meter.

In the upper right corner of the Main Screen is where your current weapon,
and ammo, will be displayed. When you have a weapon in your hand then you
will also see a Crosshair. In the lower left corner of the screen is where
information will be displayed when certain events occur.

Now for a breakdown of some of these displays.....

 \=========================================================================/
            \=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=/

The Health Bar represents your available health. It will go red when it gets
low and when it disappears then you will die.

You will get hurt when you are shot, hit, or fall from a great length. The
amount of health depleted depends on what weapon is being fired at you and
what part of your body is being hit. Being hit in the head or anywhere with a
powerful weapon will greatly damage or kill you outright.

The Threat Meter represents how much stress you have when close to Guards or
your Target. When it flashes red then you are considered to be in danger.
This usually happens when you are near Guards and the longer you stay around
them then the greater the chance that you will be discovered and attacked.
Moving away from the Guard or Target will allow it to decrease without losing
your cover.

Available Actions is a context sensitive list that appears when near certain
objects that can be manipulated or picked up. When only one action is
displayed then press the Action button to perform it. If more than one action
is displayed then hold down the Action button and scroll up and down the list
then release the Action button to perform it.

This is the most important tool that you have to help you in your missions.
It displays everything in real time (except at harder difficulty levels) on
every level of a Map. You will also see how everyone moves which will be
extremely useful in planning your attacks. There are multiple icons you will
see on your Map:

0===========================================================================0
| Green (Pulsing) | This is your current position.                          |

|-----------------+---------------------------------------------------------|
| Orange          | This is an enemy. These are usually Guards.             |
|-----------------+---------------------------------------------------------|
| Dark Green      | These are innocent Civilians. They are harmless but if  |
|                 | they see you doing something suspicious then they will  |
|                 | go to a nearby Guard to inform them of it.              |
|-----------------+---------------------------------------------------------|
| Blue            | These are Police. They are pretty much the same as a    |
|                 | regular enemy.                                          |
|-----------------+---------------------------------------------------------|
| White           | This is a V.I.P. This person usually needs to be        |
|                 | protected but not always.                               |

A pulsing yellow "!" symbol is known as a Point of Interest. These marked
places either contain a potentially useful item or is a place where you can
do a specific action. A red pulsing glyph symbol is known as an Agency
Pickup. This is where you can find items that the Agency has left for you to
use on the mission.

To use any weapon or item you must first bring up the Inventory Menu which
will also serve as a pause screen. Select the item or weapon you wish to use
and Equip it to bring out the item and leave the menu.

If you are using a weapon then you can Holster it by using the Holster
button. One thing to note about "Silent Assassin" is that if you press the
Holster button again after holstering your weapon then you will bring out the
same weapon again.

This will allow you quickly bring out a specific weapon for a quick attack.
Bringing out a weapon and quickly holstering it for an attack later in the
mission is known as "Prepping" the weapon. The only weapon that cannot be
quickly used this way is the Anaesthetic.

One particular action you can do in "Silent Assassin" is to pick open most
locked doors. One of the items you have in your inventory is the Lockpick.
When you get to a locked door then you will see the option to Pick Lock.
Select it and Agent 47 will begin to Pick the Lock.

However, this takes time during which you risk being seen, and/or possibly
heard, by a nearby Guard. One common trick to speed this process up is to
switch to your Map and quickly switch back while you are picking the lock.
But this only works about half the time.

As you go about the mission you will see both Guards and Civilians move about
the area. The most important thing to know about this game, as well as the
other "Hitman" games, is that everybody, Guards and Civilians alike, move in
very specific patterns but sometimes at random.

It is very important to note these patterns as it can make the difference
between success and failure. When you first play a mission it is best to take
your time and observe everything so you can get the feel of how everybody
moves before doing anything of importance.

If any Civilian sees you doing something out of the ordinary, like moving a
body, then that person will become alarmed and go to alert the Guards or
Police.

Placing yourself in the exact spot in the patrol pattern of a Guard can make
it much easier to take him down without fuss and where you don't need to move
the body (or be much closer to a place where you can drag him). Or waiting
for the precise moment when a Civilian goes around a corner so you can take
down a Guard without being seen.

As already mentioned, the game does tend to be pretty random at times which
goes into the next chapter.....

One of the more aggravating things about this game is that it can get very
random at times which can affect your ability to get a good score or even
successful completion. Most Guards and Civilians move in very predictable and
easily timed patterns. But some of them have more than one pattern (with a
common start/stop point) and the amount of time that person stops at any
given point is also random.

In addition, when you start a mission, that person may even start randomly
which may seriously affect the timing you may need to rely on to successfully
complete a mission. Sometimes they may even get run over by vehicles which
can mess up things further.

As you can imagine this can make things very frustrating at times when
playing through certain missions. In this guide you will see a Randomness
rating in each mission. This will tell you how bad the randomness can get and
what to expect.

Sometimes, at random, a patrolling Guard or Civilian will get stuck at the
end of his patrol route. Depending on who and where the person gets stuck
this can be good or bad. Most of the time this can be a good thing since it
makes it easier for you to either avoid or attack this person because they
are standing still. Take advantage of these situations when they occur.

In "Silent Assassin" the Guards are more alert when they see you running
about. This is a change from the previous game, "Codename 47", in which the
Guards didn't care about you running around. There are instances that you may
want to move faster but can't be seen running or you will risk being
discovered. There are a couple of methods that you can use to help speed
yourself up:

  >>Tap Running
    ***********
      This is a pretty common way to move faster. Basically you briefly tap 
      the Run Button or flick the Left Analog Stick forward about every half 
      second or so. You will have a funny kind of walk, kind of like a 
      goosestep, but you will move forward a bit faster.

  >>Sliding
    *******
      This is something I found on my own years ago. What you do is rapidly 
      flick your Left Analog Stick forward (if you are on the PC (with 
      Xpadder) and PS2, PS3, and Xbox 360 versions you have to hold down the 
      Run Button too).

      What should happen is that you will move forward but you will also look 
      like you are frozen in what appears to be a falling backwards motion 
      that looks like you're sliding hence the name.

      The thing about this is that, if executed correctly, then you will move 
      as fast as running but the game will count it as a walk. Thus you can 
      slide past Guards without suspicion because the game thinks that you 
      are walking when you are actually not.

In addition, there is also one additional way to move slower:

  >>Nudging
    *******
      This method involves moving yourself incrementally without going into 
      Sneak Mode. Quickly nudge the Left Analog Stick and you can move a few 
      pixels forward even though it looks like you are standing still. This 
      is beneficial to quickly get closer to something without risking 
      getting caught.

 \=========================================================================/
            \=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=/

The thing about running is that it also makes noise which can attract Guards
and spook Civilians. This is usually a bad thing but you can also use this to
your advantage.

If you want a Guard to look in a specific direction so you can do something
else in the area you want him to look away from then run in a tight circle in
the direction you want him to look at. This will get him turned in that
direction therefore distracting him and making your task easier.

The overall goal of a given mission is to get close to your Target and kill
him with little fanfare as possible.

There are situations where you need to quietly dispose of someone that may
get in your way later. The quietest way to get rid of someone is to get
behind him and then use the Knife/Fiber Wire to take him down. If you do not
wish to kill him then use your Anaesthetic.

Entering Sneak Mode, which will make you crouch, will allow you to move about
slowly and silently. If you walk or run to a potential victim with your
weapon drawn then he may turn around before you can attack him and things can
go seriously wrong from there.

During the course of the guide you will see four specific Melee Attack words:
Sedate, Knife, Wire, and Slash. They pertain to certain methods of Melee
Attacks:

|               |                                                           |

|               | It should be noted that if you are creeping up on your    |
|               | victim then hold down the Attack Button so the moment you |
|               | get into range then you will automatically attack.        |

| Knife or Wire | This is if you wish to kill a target with either a Knife  |
|               | or Fiber Wire. It uses the same moves as the Sedate       |
|               | method described above.                                   |
|---------------+-----------------------------------------------------------|
| Slash         | This method also involves the Knife but this is done with |
|               | a MOVING target such as a patrolling Guard. Get up right  |
|               | against his backside and walk with him then quickly pull  |
|               | out the weapon and attack before he can make any noise    |
|               | then immediately Holster the Knife.                       |

Another type of melee attack that you can do is Pistolwhipping. When you have
a gun drawn and you are very close to somebody then you can smack them in the
head with it. Civilians will go down in one hit and Guards in two. However,
your victim will only stay down for a few seconds before getting up.

One interesting thing to note - when you Pistolwhip a Guard then he will drop
his weapon. If you pick up the weapon then you will effectively disarm him
and he will run about scared like a Civilian when he gets back up.

When you pull out a weapon then you will bring up a Crosshair. When the
Crosshair is placed on a person then it will turn red. But the Crosshair will
turn red even if the person is behind a wall or other obstacle. This can be
very useful when trying to track someone. I will refer to the Red Crosshair
frequently during the course of this guide.

It is *VERY* important to point out is that this doesn't exist on the PC
version.

Every so often you will see me talk about Rampaging. This means basically
going through a mission and killing most, if not, everybody in it. Although
this ruins your score it can be beneficial in that it will allow for easier
acquisition of certain weapons and to blow through difficult missions just to
get them out of the way. You can always go back and clean up your score later
if you wish to do so.

This particular trick, also called the 45-Degree Door Grab, allows you to use
the door as a kind of shield when attacking someone. Basically what you do is
stand by a door in such a way that when a Guard opens it it will only open
partway because you are in the way. However, he will not see you.

But you can still go through the door and be able to attack him either by
Sedating him or Killing him with a melee weapon (depending on how you
position yourself in relation to the Guard).

If you plan to Kill the person then stand against the door while facing it.
When the person tries to open the door then it won't open because you are
blocking it. Then sidestep little by little to the right or left (depending
on the door) until until you get enough of the weapon through the door to
kill him.

If you plan to Sedate the person then stand against the door with your back
to it. Then you pretty much do the same thing until enough of the person gets
through the door to Sedate him. It is important to note that when trying to
Sedate someone this way you will also risk having them disappear on you when
you complete your attack.

This is an annoying bug that can sometimes occur when Sedating someone
because most of the time you need something from the sleeping person, like
clothes or an item. And this will often force you to restart.

Sometimes when you try to Sedate someone through a door using the above trick
then the person you are attacking gets separated from you as the door opens
even though you are making a successful attack. And this increases the chance
that the body will disappear.

If you wish to use this trick for Sedating someone then do it against a
person you don't need anything from so that if the body disappears then it
won't cause a problem to you.

A side benefit to having a body disappear is that they will also disappear
from the Map. However, they are still in the game - they're just trapped in
some kind of limbo. On some missions you can drop people into the water after
Sedating them to make them disappear and trap them there.

The good thing about disappearing bodies is that they aren't dead and
therefore it doesn't count as a Kill which is good for those trying for
Silent and Perfect Assassin ratings.

After Killing or Sedating your victim then you should drag him to a secluded
area so he isn't found by other Guards and Civilians. To drag a body you need
to be close enough to the body to get the action to appear in the Action
Window then select Drag Body.

At this point you will grab the body and start to drag it behind you. This
will slow you down a lot and you will risk being seen. So it is important to
either Kill/Sedate him near a place where you can hide the body or
Kill/Sedate him in a secluded area so you don't have to drag the body at all.

In most missions you will need to get a disguise to enter restricted access
areas and get close to your Target. Usually this is done by killing or
knocking out a Guard and taking his clothes. As long as you do not do
anything out of the ordinary then you will be seen as a Guard or somebody
that is supposed to be there and you can move freely about. 

If any other Guards see the body of the dead or sleeping Guard you switched
clothes with then they will become suspicious and will start looking for
somebody dressed as that person (meaning: you). They will also become
suspicious when the Guard you took the clothes from wakes up. Depending on
where you are when the sleeping Guard awakens then this may cause serious
problems (ie: Psychic Guards - next chapter).

If you Sedated a Guard and he wakes up then he will look around for a bit
before returning to his patrol route even if he is almost naked. You may even
be able to get close to him without incident even though you are wearing his
uniform. But not always. If you and the naked Guard/Civilian are in the same
area with some Guards then your cover will be blown and you will be attacked.

If you took the Guard's weapon while he is asleep then you will disarm him.
When he awakens then he will resume his patrol without it regardless of
whether or not you took his Outfit. However, if you get close to him,
regardless of what disguise you are in, then he will either run from you like
a scared Civilian or freeze in place and look around in a panic.

It is important to note that encountering the awakened, naked, and disarmed
Guard will also count as a Close Encounter on your stats regardless of the
fact that he can do no harm to you. In addition, having him run around like a
frightened chicken may cause problems later in the mission. So it may be best
not to take his weapon unless you plan to be far enough away from him by the
time he wakes up.

Sometimes you will see Guards with weapons drawn. You can do the same but
only if the weapon is similar to the weapons the other Guards are carrying.
You can also safely attack people with firearms as long as you are isolated
with your victim. If you are seen attacking someone then your cover will be
blown.

One nice trick while changing clothes - if you quickly switch to your Map and
back you will be immediately dressed.

There are instances that you will Sedate a Guard for his Outfit instead of
Killing him for it. And when that Guard wakes up then you will get a warning
about the Guards looking for a suspicious Guard. And, on some missions, you
will be instantly attacked by the other Guards regardless of how isolated you
are from them and even if you are wearing a completely different Outfit.

This is known as a Psychic Guard attack. It's as though they instantly became
psychic and know exactly who you are and where you are at even if you haven't
been seen by them before. If this has ever happened to you then you know how
lousy this can be. Thankfully, most missions don't have this issue. But I've
figured out how this works and how to get around it.

Either the Guards have some sort of "invisible field" that goes around them
(kind of like The Force) or that the area they are in are zoned or a
combination of both. If you are close enough to them or in the correct zone
when the warning comes up then you will be immediately attacked. If you are
far enough away then you will *NOT* be attacked when the warning is issued.

Furthermore, you will only be attacked at the time the warning comes up - not
before and, most importantly, not after.

So, what you need to do when you Sedate a Guard for his Outfit is, after
Sedation and Changing Clothes, get as far away from the Guards as possible
and wait for the sleeping Guard to wake up. Then wait for the warning to come
up and disappear before proceeding through the rest of the mission safely.

It should be noted that the warning is issued shortly after the Guard wakes
up regardless of whether he is on the Map or not. If you took an Outfit from
a Civilian then he will have to run to a Guard to have a warning issued.

Listed below are the missions that I have positively identified as having
Psychic Guards:

  --St. Petersburg Stakeout
  --Shogun Showdown
  --The Graveyard Shift
  --The Jacuzzi Job
  --The Death of Hannelore

After looking over your rating then Continue to move forward. You can save
your progress and go either to your Tool Shed or onto the next mission
depending on what chapter you are on.

On both the Xbox and PC versions the game will automatically make a game save
at the end of every mission. On all the other versions you are asked whether
or not you want to save the game. Any weapon you acquired during a mission
will be permanently added to your collection for your Tool Shed.

When you go back to your laptop in the Garden Shed or Quit and Start a
Current Game then you can replay a previously completed mission to improve
your rating for that mission or to acquire more weapons.

When replaying a mission then you can use any weapon you have acquired to
that point. This will allow you to try new tactics or to just have some fun
rampaging through a mission.

Listed in this chapter are all of the Accomplishments that can be acquired
for the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of "Silent Assassin".

Now, for the sake of terminology and to lessen confusion within this guide,
Accomplishments are what are known as Achievements on the Xbox 360 version
and Trophies on the PS3 version. To those who do not know, Achievements and
Trophies can be considered a different kind of scoring system. Each Xbox 360
game has 1000 Achievement Points that can be obtained.

However, the PS3 Trophies do not have a point system attached to them
although the numbers of Trophies attained can be considered a way of keeping
score (as well as add some kind of experience points in the PlayStation
Network system). In addition, the Trophies are split into Bronze, Silver,
Gold, and Platinum classes.

Some Accomplishments can be acquired by simply playing through the game.
Others can be obtained by doing certain objectives outside of normal
gameplay. To many gamers this adds to the replay value of each game and gives
them bragging rights on Xbox Live or PlayStation Network where these scores
are posted.

One annoyance to Accomplishments is that, depending on the game, they are
split between Single Player and Multiplayer modes. So, if you do not have the
necessary connections to get on-line, then you most likely cannot get into
multiplayer matches to obtain the Multiplayer Accomplishments.

Thankfully, "Silent Assassin" is *NOT* one of these split Achievement games
because it is strictly single player.

It is important to note that, on the Xbox 360 version, both "Silent Assassin"
and "Contracts" are on the same disc. Therefore they also share the
Achievements List and you can get a maximum of 500 GS for "Silent Assassin"
and 500 GS for "Contracts".

  >>Stackable Accomplishments
    *************************
      On many Xbox 360 and PS3 games there are Accomplishments that are tied 
      to beating the game or doing certain things at multiple difficulty 
      levels. Some are stackable and some are not. What do I mean by 
      stackable?

      If they are stackable then if you play the game at the highest 
      difficulty level without playing the other levels beneath it and beat 
      it then not only will you get the Accomplishment for beating it at the 
      highest level but you will also get the other difficulty based 
      Accomplishments even though you did not play those difficulties.

      There are two difficulty based Accomplishments in "Silent Assassin": 
      beating the game and for acquiring five Silent Assassin ratings. Both 
      of these *ARE* stackable. So, if you are a good player on the other 
      versions, then you should get these Accomplishements with little 
      problem and without having to play through the game multiple times.

The Accomplishments listed are broken down into Visible, Secret, and PS3
Specific sections.

And now a brief explanation about Agent 47's employer.....

            /=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=\
 /=========================================================================\
| >GEN29. The International Contract Agency                                 |
 \=========================================================================/
            \=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=/

The ICA or The Agency, as it is often called, is the shadowy organization
that Agent 47 used to work for. Its main purpose is to carry out
assassinations. A powerful person, or government, who wants to take down
somebody without being connected to it will contact The Agency and an agent
will be assigned to a mission to carry out the contract.

However, sometimes there is more than just killing the Target. Most missions
often have several objectives beyond the assassination. Destruction or
retrieval of items and rescuing someone are some of the other objectives that
an agent may need to accomplish.

With that said, let's move on to the last chapter before the main body of the
guide.....

            /=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=\

A general listing of your mission objectives.

Guard/Civilian placements.

| Weapons \
0=======================================================>

This is the listing of all of the collectible weapons you will find in the
mission. There will also be notes on acquiring them. This guide is designed
to help you obtain every weapon in the game even though there is no special
bonus for doing so.

Unless you're playing the Xbox 360 or PS3 versions of the game, that is.
These console versions have Achievements and Trophies attached to weapons
collecting and these acquisition strategies will allow you unlock them.

0===========0
| Randomness \
0=======================================================>

This is how much randomness that can be found in each mission. There is a
rating that is attached: None, Low, Medium, and High. I will also make notes
of how random the mission is and where it is most apparent. In addition, I
will note that best way to deal with it.

0==============0
| General Notes \
0=======================================================>

Some general notes about the entire mission that includes tips and
observations.

0===========================================================================0
|===========================| Standard Strategy |===========================|
0===========================================================================0

This is a general strategy that can be used on all three difficulty levels.
It is designed to limit Killing and still acquire a Silent Assassin rating.
There may also be alternate strategies included to successfully complete
missions.

0===========================================================================0
|=======================| Perfect Assassin Strategy |=======================|
0===========================================================================0

This is a strategy designed to acquire what is known as a Perfect Assassin
score. The Perfect Assassin term was coined by Jason and refers to having a
Silent Assassin rating with all zeros meaning no shots fired, no Alerts, no
Close Encounters, and no kills (except the Target).

Many missions will allow you to get a perfect score without too much trouble,
even at Expert and Professional difficulties although the Perfect Assassin
strategies in this guide are designed for Normal difficulty. It should be
noted that it is impossible to acquire a perfect score for the entire game as
there are two missions where you need to fire at least one shot to progress
through them.

0===========================================================================0
|=========================| Standard/PA Strategy |==========================|
0===========================================================================0

On some missions you can acquire a perfect score easily enough so that the
standard strategy also doubles as the Perfect Assassin strategy.

All of these strategies use just three weapons in your arsenal (outside of
the Fiber Wire which is a permanent part of your inventory):

  >>9mm Pistol SD
    *************
      The most common handgun in the game is the 9mm Pistol so it makes sense 
      to use its silenced cousin so it won't be hard to get ammo if you need 
      to use it frequently.

  >>Kitchen Knife
    *************
      You should have a bladed weapon for quick and silent disposal of 
      someone if you need to do so.

  >>Anaesthetic
    ***********
      This is the weapon you will be using the most as it will allow to knock 
      out somebody instead of Killing them so you can get the best possible 
      rating.

With that explained, I will now finally move on to the story.....

  /==++====++==\                                             /==++====++==\

  \==++====++==/                                             \==++====++==/

As the story begins we see a pair of men investigating something inside a
large ship. One of them appears to be American and the other is Russian.

The American finds something important about the brother of the Russian.
Something about cloning. It appears that the Russian is the brother of
Arkadij Jegorov, one of Agent 47's "fathers" (and one of the men you had to
kill in "Codename 47").

They find information on where the cloning took place, a remote location in
Romania, and decide to go there. When they get there they find the place in
shambles. They look over the surveillance tapes which show the carnage as
it happened. They are impressed by the speed of the person doing all of the
killing.

The American identifies the killer as Mr. 47 which amazes the Russian. The
American notes that there has not been any information on 47's movements
which may indicate that he is dead. But the Russian is skeptical and the both
of them decide to try to find Mr. 47 and make him work for them.

            \=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=/

This is where the game actually starts and where Agent 47 has fled to after
the events of Romania that ended the first game, "Codename 47". And this
leads into the first part of the story.....

As this chapter begins we see a familiar bald headed figure tending to a
garden somewhere in Sicily. That figure would be Agent 47. After the opening
cutscene you are then able to look and move around within the Garden Shed
which is your home. You are then prompted to go through the door.

After going through the door you then talk to your friend and mentor Father
Vittorio. 47 needs to talk to him about his troubles and Father Vittorio
tells 47 to meet him confession.

From here, you can do basic moves training or go into the Church and to the
Confession Booth. As you move about the area you are prompted with various
hints about the game. When you finally meet Father Vittorio in the Confession
Booth then you are treated to another cutscene.

47 confesses to his previous contract work and Father Vittorio tells him that
he still has a good heart. The priest tells of 47's work in the garden and of
the large donation he made to the Church. After the cutscene then you are
free to move about but there is another cutscene that occurs almost
immediately. In it Father Vittorio is kidnapped by a local thug and one of
the two men leave behind a package for Agent 47.

Go to the Parcel to find a ransom note. The ransom for Father Vittorio's
freedom is $500,000. Money that Agent 47 no longer has. It appears that the
large donation to the Church has attracted the attention of the local crime
lord who now wants some for himself.

This development drives Agent 47 to recontact The Agency for help. Diana,
Agent 47's handler, is surprised that he is still alive. But 47 isn't looking
to get back into the business. He wants to find Father Vittorio who helped
him after the events in Romania.

However, The Agency isn't just going to help 47 just like that. He needs to
repay them for their help. Agent 47 suggests that an arrangement can be made
for repayment. After the cutscene, which puts Agent 47 back into his familiar
Suit, you will be outside the Garden Shed. Here, you are free to move about.
From here, head east to find the Tool Shed. Pick the Lock and go inside.

Inside the Tool Shed is where you will store the weapons you will acquire
during the course of the game. On your initial run-through you will find this
room mostly empty except for the melee weapons. If you replay this chapter
later then you will find the weapons you have acquired from other missions.

At this point you have the option of doing some simple training, playing
around with your weapons, or head to the Garden Shed to begin the first
mission.....

Vittorio.

| The Map \
0=======================================================>

There are four levels to the Map:

  >>2nd Floor
  >>1st Floor
  >>Villa Grounds
  >>Basement

The Villa Grounds has one Point of Interest which is the Garage. The Garage
has a car you can use to escape, if you get the Car Keys, and an R93 Sniper.

There are multiple Guards all around the facility. There are at least two by
the Front Gate and two at the Back Entrance. There is also another entrance
at the southeast corner of the Villa with a single Guard. There is a Mailman
that is approaching the Villa from the south. A Delivery Boy is bringing in
groceries near the northeast corner of the Map.

The 1st Floor has one Point of Interest and that is the Deagle that can be
found on the desk. The 2nd Floor is where the Don can be found. He will go
between his office and the Balcony outside his bedroom where he will hit some
golf balls with the Golf Club.

The Basement has one Point of Interest and that is where Father Vittorio can
be found.

| There are a bunch of weapons here that you can acquire for your weapons   |
| collection. The best way to do that is to simply Rampage your way through |
| and kill everybody with your 9mm Pistol SD and Ballers.                   |
|                                                                           |
| This way you can pick up the pistols (Revolver, Deagle) and one large     |
| weapon (Golf Club, Shotgun, R93 Sniper). You will have to play through    |
| this mission three times to acquire all of the weapons because you can    |
| only carry one large weapon at a time.                                    |
|                                                                           |
| Although you are given the 9mm Pistol SD you don't have the un-silenced   |
| 9mm Pistol so grab one from the first Guard you attack. The R93 Sniper    |
| can be saved for your Silent Assassin run-through since that strategy     |
| will involve using the car for leaving.                                   |

| General Notes \
0=======================================================>

This mission is fairly simple and meant to help you get started with the
game. There are several different ways to get inside. You can ambush the
Mailman who is going to give a tribute to the Don. You can also ambush a
Delivery Boy and hide your weapon in a grocery tray.

And you can ambush a Guard that likes to take a piss outside the southeast
side of the Villa Grounds. This is also the best way to get inside since you
can easily disguise yourself as a Guard which will allow you better and more
complete access. I found that on your initial run-through you can't take the
Kitchen Knife with you.

This strategy is based on Jason's Perfect Assassin walkthrough but I tweaked
it to include acquiring the Car Keys hidden in a tree.

  >>Xbox 360 and PS3 Versions
    *************************
      By the time you are completely finished with this mission, Rampaging 
      through it multiple times to acquire weapons and cleaning up your 
      score, you will more than likely acquire the following Accomplishments:

        --1st Kill
        --1st Mission Complete
        --Headshot
        --Humanist
        --Killed the Wrong Guy
        --Silent Assassin

      And, if you get the Kitchen Knife, then you should kill at least one 
      person with it to get part of the {Jack the Ripper} Accomplishment 
      done. If you want then you can play through this mission, and acquire a 
      Silent Assassin rating, five times to get the {5 Silent Assassins} 
      Accomplishment since it can be done quickly here.

0===========================================================================0
|=========================| Standard/PA Strategy |==========================|
0===========================================================================0

When the mission starts then you will be at the southeast corner of the Map
and on a large hill. For your initial run-through you will have the 9mm
Pistol SD, the Fiber Wire, the Ballers, and the Anaesthetic.

Run toward the southeast entrance and stand by the single tree just to the
right of the door. Eventually the Guard standing on the other side of the
door will come out to take a piss by the trio of trees nearby. When he comes
out then enter Sneak Mode and get behind him. As you do so then bring out
your Anaesthetic.

When you get up against him then Sedate him. Grab his 9mm Pistol, drag him
through the nearby door, turn right to get him behind the wall, and Change
Clothes.

  **NOTE: This is unnecessary at Normal difficulty but essential at Expert 
          and Professional since there is an extra Guard that patrols the 
          nearby path. This is the only mission where there will be 
          additional Guards if you increase the difficulty.

After dealing with the Guard then run north toward the Basement entrance
which is at the southeast side of the house. Run down into the Basement and
continue north to the stairs that lead to the 1st Floor. Run up the stairs
but stop running just a few steps from the top and start walking. When you
reach the top then turn left 180-degrees. You should see the Chef ahead of
you and another set of stairs to your right.

Walk up this set of stairs and, when you reach the top of the stairs, then
continue forward to the door ahead that leads to a small balcony.

When you get onto the balcony then close the door and you should find a gap
between the railing and the house that you can use to access a narrow ledge.
Get onto this ledge and gently proceed around the corner and head north. Walk
on the ledge facing the building at a 45-degree angle so you don't fall off.

Eventually you will get onto another section of the roof. When you get onto
this part of the roof then run northwest until you reach the edge. Here you
should find a Ladder down. However, sidestep left and you should find the top
of a tree. Gently walk off the roof to land on this tree and you will find,
of all things, a Car Key.

Grab the Car Key, fall off the tree, then head back up the ladder to the
roof. From here, run south and you will find a board that leads to the
balcony that goes around the Boss' Office. When you get to the board then
stop running and start walking. Get onto the balcony and proceed to the door
at the west side of the Boss' Office. Open the door, step just inside to keep
the door from closing, and enter Sneak Mode.

If you've done everything correctly then the Don shouldn't be in his Office.
About fifteen seconds later he should return. When he stops then sneak in and
bring out your Fiber Wire. Wire him then take the Door Key (which opens the
door where Vittorio is at) and grab the Revolver. Then walk east out the door
and back onto the roof.

Get back onto the ledge and head towards the Basement entrance. When you get
above the entrance then drop down and run into the Basement. Turn the corner
and run into the door, which should be to your right, and enter the room.
However, Father Vittorio is not here. He has been taken away. From here, run
back out of the Basement, turn right and head south, then enter the back door
to the Garage.

Grab the R93 Sniper which is laying against the north wall then Escape in Car
to successfully complete the mission.

The maze-like Sewers Map has three Manholes that are used to access the
Streets. The Metro Map has your Agency Pickup and Exit Point. The Metro
Entrance has an exit leading out and the doorway leading into the Sewers. The
Streets is what's outside the Metro.

There are plenty of Soldiers outside on the Streets to make sure that no
Civilian can enter the restricted area that is outside the Pushkin Building.

To the northwest is the building with a Point of Interest. This is the
Apartment building you can snipe your Target from. Your Target will be on the
northwest side of the second floor of the Pushkin Building.

| General Notes \
0=======================================================>

Like the last mission this is also fairly simple. According to Jason you can
choose to take down your Target with a Knife so you won't have to fire a shot
and achieve a Perfect Assassin score but that requires more effort. To this
end I am including the standard Sniper Rifle and the alternate Knife method
but making my own observations and tweaks to them.

0===========================================================================0
|===========================| Standard Strategy |===========================|
0===========================================================================0

When you start the mission then you will be in the Metro right by your Exit
Point. The Agency Pickup, which is in Locker 137, is to the north. Inside the
Agency Pickup is a 9mm Pistol, Pistol Ammo, an SVD Sniper, Sniper Ammo, and
Nightvision Goggles.

However, it is not best to go there quite yet. You see, there are two
Civilians that wander the Metro and they will get spooked if they see you
carrying around an un-concealable SVD Sniper and will alert the Soldiers. At
least, not in your current Suit. You will need a disguise before you can
safely walk around with the Sniper Rifle.

For now, though, just run up the stairs and escalator. You will get a notice
from Diana about the meeting starting early but the timer won't actually
start until you pass a certain point on the Map.

When you get to the top of the escalator then you will see a doorway to your
left. This doorway will lead down to a lower area with a patrolling Guard.
Walk down and turn right. You should see some Lockers and a door to your
right.

Wait for the Soldier to go behind the Lockers then walk through the door and
close it. You should then find another door. But this one needs to be picked.
Pick the Lock and go through the door to enter the Sewers. You should be at
the east side of the Sewers. Check your Map and you should see the three
Manholes that you can use to get access to the Streets.

The one you should go to is the nearest one which is the one just north of
you. Run there and climb the Ladder but stay just below street level. Angle
your Camera correctly and you should see a large truck and a Soldier Outfit
on the ground by it. However, check your Map first before proceeding.

The Manhole you are at is north of the road block just outside the Metro
Entrance. To the east are two stationary Soldiers that are looking east and
away from you. There is a Soldier that patrols around the building north of
your current position. He will stop by the two stationary Soldiers for a bit
to talk and he will be looking west and towards the truck.

If you try to acquire the Soldier Outfit when he is talking to his friends
then he will see you and things go bad. Wait for him to start moving north
before going up and acquiring the disguise.

After getting the Outfit then run back through the Sewers and Metro to Locker
137 (but walk when near Soldiers), Pick the Lock, and then get both the SVD
Sniper and the Sniper Ammo (you won't need anything else). Because you are
dressed as a Soldier then the Civilians won't be spooked when they see you
carrying a Sniper Rifle.

Then run most of the way to the top of the escalator and stop. In addition to
the Soldier in the lower room there is another patrolling Soldier that goes
from the Streets to the lower room and then back again. You can't let the
Soldiers see you with the Sniper Rifle or they will get suspicious and will
come closer to investigate and this can blow your cover.

When the coast is clear then stay at the top of the stairs and wait for the
patrolling Soldier to go from left to right at the bottom of the stairs (use
the Red Crosshair to keep track of him through the wall). Then proceed down
and wait for him to go behind the lockers again before going back through the
door into the Sewers. Then run back to the Manhole, get back to ground level,
and stay by the south side of the truck.

Look at your Map and towards the Pushkin Building. There are four patrolling
Soldiers going around the street that circles the building. Wait for them to
cluster by the Apartment Building before going any further. It is important
to note that you have to walk through most of this because any running will
draw them closer to you and you will risk having your cover blown.

If you are good with Tap Running or Sliding then this is a good time to use
those speed-up techniques to get to your sniping point faster.

From the truck you need to go through the street entrance southeast of the
Pushkin Building. As you get close to the entrance then Diana will let you
know when the meeting starts. This will officially start the five minute
timer. Go northwest along the northeast side of the Pushkin Building until
you get close to the Apartment Building. Stay on the Pushkin Building side of
the street until the Soldiers are far away from you.

  **NOTE: While you are at the back of the building then check your Map and 
          select the Pushkin 1st Floor area. If there are no patrolling 
          Guards then you have the option of sneaking through the back door 
          and to the door nearby. When Diana starts going through the 
          personnel file then sneak back out. From here, you can take as much 
          time as you need to get to the sniping point.

When the coast is clear then go across the street and enter the single door
at the south corner of the Apartment Building. Going through this door will
allow you to avoid a patrolling Soldier that patrols the main stairway.

When you get inside then you should see a hallway with a door at the end.
Head down this hallway and you will find another short hall to your right
with a door at the end. Turn right and go down this hall and you will find a
set of curved stairs to your left.

Go up it, turn left, turn left at the corner, and you will find the next set
of curved stairs. Repeat twice more and, when you get to the top of the
fourth floor, then enter the door ahead of you and turn left. You should go
through a Kitchen. Go through the door at the end of the Kitchen.

You should be in a Living Room that looks over the Pushkin Building. Position
yourself at the open window then look at the Streets Map or look down through
the window. Wait for all four of the patrolling Soldiers to be at the
southeast side of the Pushkin Building before going any further. When they
are in position then kick back out of the Map and go into zoom mode with your
Sniper Rifle.

At this point you should find four Generals in the room and you need to
properly identify the correct one. Diana will then run over some possible
clues to find him. But the correct General is always going to be the one
closest to the window sitting down. Aim at him but *DON'T* shoot yet.

You see, there is another larger person standing near the table. This is the
same guy you saw in the opening cinema when you loaded up the game. Every now
and then he will hunch down over the table and put himself behind the
General. Remember, the Sniper Rifles can shoot through more than one target.

So, if you shoot the General when this person is hunched down behind him,
then you will kill them both and this will result in a mission failure. To
prevent this then wait for this person to hunch over and straighten out
*THEN* fire at the General. After the General is dead then immediately drop
the SVD Sniper and run back into the Kitchen. At this point you will get an
Alert.

Run through the door at the end of the of the Kitchen and you should see the
stairwell again. Run back down the stairs and walk back out the door you
entered from. After awhile the Guards will go back to their patrol routes.

If any of the patrolling Soldiers in the street were close enough to the
building when you shot the General then you will get another Alert and at
least one of them will come up to investigate. This will prevent you from
getting a Silent Assassin rating and you will end up with Professional
instead.

By approaching the building when they are clustered by it and waiting for
them to be far away before firing then you will greatly reduce, but not
completely eliminate, the extra Alert.

If you wish to acquire the SVD Sniper then stay in the Kitchen and retrieve
it when the Guards have calmed down. Check the Streets Map for nearby
Soldiers before leaving the building. Then retrace your path back to the
Manhole, Sewers, Metro Entrance, and Metro while avoiding the Soldiers.

If you do not wish to acquire the SVD Sniper then returning to the Metro will
be easier since you will not give the Soldiers any reason to be suspicious of
you. Even better is that you can retrieve your Suit near the truck and you
won't have to worry about the Soldiers at the Metro Entrance.

Regardless, when you get back to the Metro then run to the train to
successfully complete the mission.

0===========================================================================0
|=======================| Perfect Assassin Strategy |=======================|
0===========================================================================0

For this method you need to enter the back door of the Pushkin Building and
approach the Target, on the second floor, by foot. Then you have to kill him
with the Knife and leave while dodging the Bodyguards.

When you start the mission then look at your Map and go to the Pushkin 1st
Floor level. There will be two Bodyguards that will patrol this floor - one
going clockwise and one going counterclockwise.

On the console versions (PS2, Xbox, GameCube) they can either be patrolling
or frozen on opposite sides of the building. While at the Metro you can
restart the mission continuously until you get it to where the Bodyguards are
frozen which will make it easier for you.

  >>PC Version
    **********
      The Bodyguards never freeze so you will have to do things the hard way.

  >>Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 Versions
    ***********************************
      The Bodyguards never patrol so it will make things much easier for you.

After you get things the way you want then you go through the same procedure
to acquire the Soldier Outfit but do not go back to the Metro. Instead, wait
for the Soldiers to clear away from the southeast side of the Pushkin
Building then run to the back door. Save your game here then proceed based on
what the two Bodyguards are doing:

  >>Frozen
    ******
      Get into Sneak Mode and enter the back door. Go left and through the 
      double doors and then through the next set of double doors. Here you 
      should see a Bodyguard standing here. Sedate him, drag his body to the 
      dumpsters just outside the back door, and Change Clothes.

  >>Patrolling
    **********
      Get into Sneak Mode and bring out your Anaesthetic. Look at the Pushkin 
      1stFl. Map and wait for the Counterclockwise Bodyguard (going 
      northwest) to pass by the back door.

      After he passes by then open the door then take a couple of steps 
      inside while holding down the Fire Button. The door will act as a 
      shield as you wait for the Clockwise Bodyguard (going southeast) to 
      pass in front of you.

      Angle about 45 degrees to the left as you wait for the Bodyguard. Just 
      as he gets in front of you then move forward and you should Sedate him. 
      Then drag his body to the dumpsters just outside and Change Clothes.

After obtaining the Bodyguard Outfit from him then go northeast and to the
very north side of the Map. As noted earlier, this is a mission where you can
be attacked by Psychic Guards and I want him to wake back up and return to
his patrol before re-entering the building. Thus I am going here until he
goes back inside.

It is also important to note that you cannot be seen by the Bodyguards, even
if you are dressed as one, or you will be attacked. Even though the Bodyguard
Outfit is useless against them it is still beneficial in that it will allow
you to run past the Soldiers without any problems near the end of the
mission.

When the coast is clear then go back inside, Prep your Knife, and go to the
south door for the Lobby while dodging the Bodyguards. Quickly Pick the Lock
then head up the stairs and turn right to go up the next set. When you get
upstairs and into the next room then turn left to find another door to enter
the long hallway. The door at the end of the hallway leads into the Meeting
Room.

When you get to this door then save your game again. That way if something
goes wrong in your approach then you can reload this point. If the Bodyguards
on the 1st Floor are patrolling then wait for the Bodyguard to walk past the
back door then make your move. Your Target is on the right of the VIP.

The plan here is to kill the General *AFTER* he leaves his chair. However, in
order for this to work, he needs to run forward then turn left after getting
up. If he loops back behind the chair then restart as he is going down the
stairs instead.

When you are ready then bring out your Knife and run to the back of his
chair. When he gets up then follow him as he is going through the small rooms
and he will stop in the corner in one of them. Kill him here and proceed
northwest into the large room then head back into the hallway and stop near
the center.

The wild card here is going to be the Bodyguards. They will be running up as
the Generals run around in a panic. Sometimes you will encounter them as you
are heading back into the hallway - most times you won't. If you encounter
them on the way to the hallway then there goes your clean run thus forcing a
restart.

When you are safely in the hallway then keep an eye on your Map. Most times
they will simply stop in the Meeting Room and look around. However, they can
find the body of the General or become Alerted without finding the body which
will ruin the clean run you were trying for and force a restart. Or they
could run into the hallway and find you.

Eventually, after awhile, everybody will settle down and the Bodyguards will
return to their places. If the two patrolling Bodyguards were frozen when the
mission started then they will no longer be that way and resume their
patterns. The surviving Generals will continue their meeting at the east side
of the 1st Floor.

Sometimes, though, just as everybody is almost settled down, one Bodyguard
may suddenly run back upstairs. If you see this, and you determine which set
of stairs he is going up on, then immediately run to another part of the 2nd
Floor. He is going to run to your exact position. If you run to another part
of the floor before he gets to where you just were then he won't find you.

After everybody is completely settled down then go partway down the south
part of the stairs and save your game. You have to wait for both of the
patrolling Bodyguards to cross paths at one of the doors at either the
northwest or south end of the Lobby before proceeding:

  >>Northwest Door
    **************
      Let the Counterclockwise Bodyguard get ahead of you then proceed 
      through the South Door but stop close to the wall to your left. You do 
      not want the Generals to see you through the next door or they will 
      make a run for the Bodyguards.

      When that door closes then walk to it and stand to its right. Wait for 
      the Clockwise Bodyguard to walk through the door and open the door to 
      the Lobby before proceeding. Then run through the door to the new 
      Meeting Room, past the Generals who will now run to the Bodyguards, and 
      out the back door.

  >>South Door
    **********
      Wait for the Clockwise Bodyguard to walk past the stairs before walking 
      down and through the South Door. Wait for the door to close behind you 
      and check your Map. Wait for the Counterclockwise Bodyguard to get to 
      the north door for the hallway before running through the new Meeting 
      Room and out the back door.

When you safely get outside then turn right past the dumpsters and run like
hell for the Sewers. If everything has gone right then the Bodyguards won't
run out after you. If they do then you should be out of their sight and they
can't follow you.

Once you get back to the Sewers then make your way back to the Metro to
successfully complete the mission.

Since you didn't use the SVD Sniper then you can easily obtain it from the
Locker. However, carrying the Sniper Rifle while wearing the Bodyguard Outfit
will spook the Civilians so Pick the Lock of the Locker and wait for both of
them to be far away before grabbing the weapon and making a run for the
train.

       <0+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+<<##0##>>+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+0>

At the end of the mission then you will find yourself back at your Tool Shed.
When you get back to your computer in the Garden Shed then you will talk to
Diana again.

Even though you have paid your debt to The Agency she has asked if you would
be interested in continuing your work with them. Especially since the client
you helped in the previous mission is in trouble and likes your style. After
some one-sided negotiations then you will go back to St. Petersburg.....

After the last mission the other three remaining Generals that survived the
previous assassination have begun their own investigations to find out who
made the hit. This has made the client very unhappy.

So now you have to go and kill them off before the truth is found. One of
them, General Makarov, is meeting with a Mafia contact to buy protection and
information. They are meeting in Kirov Park and both must be taken down.

This mission allows for different means of pulling off the hit. You can snipe
them from two different points on the Map (Radio Tower to the west, Church
tower to the east) or you can plant Car Bombs (found in the Agency Pickup)
from underneath using the Sewers.

However, Jason came up with a real easy way to deal with them using only the
Kitchen Knife. This also allows you to get a Perfect Assassin rating. It is
his method I am using for this mission but have added my own observations to
make this better. And remember what I said about the attack patterns using
the Knife? That bit of info is useful here.

Unfortunately, the Perfect Assassin strategy will *NOT* work on Professional.
If you try to enter the park on foot then you will be shot. Therefore the
Standard Strategy will use the reliable Car Bomb method which works on all
three difficulties.

When you start the mission then head up to street level but stay on the east
side of the road. While looking west then sidestep right until you are in
line with the two green dumpsters across the street. Then wait for the
patrolling Soldier to stop by the dumpsters and walk away before crossing the
street and going behind them.

When you get behind the dumpsters then you will find a bunch of weaponry
including the two Car Bombs and the SVD Sniper. Grab the two Car Bombs and,
if you didn't acquire it from the previous mission, the SVD Sniper. Carefully
go back across the street, down the stairs, and drop the rifle on the north
side of the pier (not by the boat).

In the middle of the street near the dumpsters is a Manhole. Go down the
Manhole and proceed southwest to another one. This one is covered by the
General's limo. Climb up the ladder and plant the first Car Bomb. After that
then you need to plant the second one on the limo for the Mafia Boss.
However, his limo does not cover a Manhole so you will need to approach it
another way.

Directly north of your current position are two more Manholes - one with a
short tunnel and one with a long tunnel. The one you want to go through is
the one with the long tunnel. Run through the Sewers to get to this Manhole
and climb out.

You will now be behind a large building. When you get out of the Manhole then
turn around to find the corner. Approach this corner at about 45 degrees and
stop about ten feet from it. By the Mafia Boss's limo is a Chauffeur. On
occasion he will walk away from the vehicle to take a piss. And he will do so
in this building corner.

When he stops in front of you then enter Sneak Mode, bring out your
Anaesthetic as you are creeping up to him, and Sedate him. Then Change
Clothes and run back to the street the same way the Chauffeur came. When you
get to the street then walk to the limo and Plant Bomb. Then walk back to the
building corner by the street then run back to the sleeping Chauffeur.

Change back into your Suit then go northeast and around the edge of the area
back to the Pier. By the time you reach the Pier then both Targets will be
blown up by the Car Bombs. Then pick up the SVD Sniper and run to the boat to
successfully complete this mission.

You will get one Alert because either the body of the Mafia Boss or one of
his Bodyguards will be found but you will still get a Silent Assassin rating.

|=======================| Perfect Assassin Strategy |=======================|
0===========================================================================0

  **IMPORTANT: As already noted, this strategy will not work on Professional 
               difficulty - use the Standard Strategy.

When you start the mission then head up to street level and run across the
road to a large round lamppost. Stand at the northeast corner of this
lamppost and look southwest. A patrolling Soldier will approach near the
corner of the large building ahead of you. You need to keep the lamppost
between you and him or he will see you and try to get rid of you.

After a few seconds then one of the limos will pass by. Then the Soldier will
head in your direction. Enter Sneak Mode and bring out your Anaesthetic. Move
around the lamppost as the Soldier approaches so you can remain hidden.

After he passes then get behind him, get close to him, and Sedate him as he
stops nearby. Change Clothes, Prep your Knife, then run south and go west
around the corner. As you get near the stationary Soldiers then stop running
and start walking. At this point you should see the General come up to them
and start to head into the Park.

Follow the General, but not too closely, into the Park and go between the two
Soldiers stationed at the entrance. You will max out your Threat Meter as you
do so but you are still okay. Continue following the General. He may look
behind himself every so often but that is okay.

After awhile he will stop. You should stop as well. Then, as Igor enters the
Park, he will move forward again. Eventually the two will meet. As the two of
them stop then continue to walk to them so you are kind of trying to put
yourself between them but stop just before you actually get there.

Then, as soon as they bring their arms out to begin their hugging (at which
case you should be almost right up against them), bring out your Knife and
press the Fire Button once, which will make you stab forward, and kill them
both simultaneously!

Apparently the character models of the General and Igor overlap at about
chest level so, when you stab forward between them, then you are hitting both
of them at the same time. Makes things easy doesn't it?

After killing them then immediately Holster your Knife. From here then just
retrace your path back to the sleeping Soldier and grab either his AK or the
SVD Sniper from the Agency Pickup for your weapons collection then run to the
Exit Point to successfully complete this mission.

Another of the remaining Generals is now interrogating a Prisoner trying to
get the truth. In addition, there is additional security because of rumors of
an assassination attempt. You need to kill this General and rescue the
Prisoner.

| The Map \
0=======================================================>

There are five levels to the Map:

  >>Streets
  >>Sewers
  >>Headquarter
  >>1st Basement
  >>2nd Basement

The Sewers Map has a Point of Interest which is the ladder leading up to the
Army Depot. The Sewers also has several ladders leading up to various points
in the Streets.

The Sewers also has a second Map. This Map, on the right side, contains the
Exit Point and is accessible from the 1st Basement of the Military
Headquarters.

The Streets Map has the Army Depot and the Military Headquarters. The Army
Depot has several Soldiers plus the Agency Pickup at the southeast corner.
The Military Headquarters also has several Guards.

The Headquarters, which is the first floor of the facility, has a Point of
Interest. This PoI is on the second floor and is a desk that contains a
Deagle.

The 1st Basement is quite large and contains multiple hallways and several
labeled rooms. Four of the rooms are Guard Quarters. But three of them are
populated with four Soldiers each. The fourth one, on the west side is empty.

In addition, there are several additional Soldiers that are in the Control
Room and patrolling the hallways. There is also an Agency Pickup in the
center of the Map but all it is is an AK.

There are three PoI's on this level. The first one is in the Server Room
which is on the east side. This room contains a Server you can disable to
knock out all of the Cameras in the 1st Basement.

The second PoI, by the Guard Quarters at the southeast corner of the Map,
contains an Officer Outfit. The third PoI is in the Sewer Station and is the
wall you need to blow up.

The 2nd Basement is where the Prisoner is being interrogated. There are also
a few Soldiers in the room at the south side of the Map. The Point of
Interest on this Map is in the Observation Room where you can shoot out the
glass to get at the General.

| General Notes \
0=======================================================>

This is a fairly large Map but a straightforward mission. Not a whole lot of
room for creativity.

There is a potential problem that may pop up if you use saves, something I
found on the PS3 version. If you use a save then you may not be able to use
the Pager luring technique to kill the General. You can use the Pager all day
long but the General won't leave the room.

If you wish to use a save then use the Pager and wait for the General to move
towards it before creating the save.

0===========================================================================0
|=========================| Standard/PA Strategy |==========================|
0===========================================================================0

When you start the mission then you will be on the south side of the Sewers.
Drop the AK or SVD Sniper if you brought it with you from the previous
mission. Bring out your Anaesthetic and go to the Ladder that leads up into
the Army Depot. Climb the ladder but don't go all the way to the top.

Rotate the Camera right and look south. You should see a bunch of large
crates. You will also eventually see a Soldier stop near them. When he has
his back to you then finish climbing up the Ladder and walk towards him. As
you walk forward then look toward the ground. You should see some snow on the
ground just before you get to the crates.

Just before you get to the snow then enter Sneak Mode. If you continue to
walk towards the Soldier then he will hear you and turn around. Sneak up to
him and Sedate him. Then drag him back towards the Manhole but angle
northwest to get completely behind the crates so you aren't seen by the other
patrolling Soldier in the Depot.

Just before you get to the Manhole then drop him and Change Clothes. Before
you go any further check your Map (or look over the crates) and make sure
that the patrolling Soldier, to the south of your position has stopped at
either the east or west end of his patrol route.

When this happens then grab the Soldier again and drag him to the left side
of the Manhole. Drag him over the Manhole and drop him into the Sewers. This
way, when he wakes up later, then he won't be able to warn the other
Soldiers.

It should be pointed out that there is a room nearby with a AK but, if you
want the weapon then you can just take the one the Soldier you attacked
dropped.

Next, head to the Agency Pickup at the southwest corner of the Depot. Pick up
the Phone, Mini-Bomb, Pager, and Bomb Remote. Everything else you can leave
behind. This also fulfills one of your objectives. The Phone and Pager can be
used to lure the General to you and the Mini-Bomb and Bomb Remote are used to
blow a hole in the Sewer wall.

Now to head to the Military Headquarters. There are three ways you can do
this. The first one is to enter the backside of the truck and it will take
you there.

The second one is to enter the nearby Manhole and head north on foot to the
northern Manhole that exits out near the Headquarters. If you want to try
this then you should wait for the Soldier that stands near the Manhole to
answer the nearby phone when it rings so you won't have any problems.

The third one is to go down the Manhole you come up from and head to another
Manhole that also leads into the Military Headquarters.

When you get to the Military Headquarters then you need to enter the door on
the north side of the building. There is a Soldier that patrols the ramp that
goes to the door. Wait for him to stop at the west end of his patrol route
then follow him, but not too closely, up the ramp to the door. However, when
he goes inside the building, then hide behind the crate near the door.

When he heads back out and west then enter the building. There is a Soldier
inside that patrols a circular route that goes up onto the metal ramp that
comprises some of the second floor (and leads to the room with the Deagle).

The first floor of this building also has lots of large crates that can cover
you as you make your way to the Elevator that goes down into the lower
levels. The Elevator is on the west side of this floor. After going through
the door then turn right and follow the wall. As you get to the corner then
you should find an AK by a large crate. If you don't have an AK at this point
then you should get it here.

At this point the Soldier you Sedated has now awakened and you will get the
warning about the Guards looking for a suspicious Guard. But, since he is in
the Sewer, disarmed, and can't seem to climb a Ladder, then you won't have
any problems.

When you get to the corner then turn south and get around the crate to get to
the Elevator. When you go down the Elevator then you will be awarded with a
bonus save. When you get to the 1st Basement then stay in the Elevator. Look
for a Soldier in the hallway ahead.

If he is stopped by the Elevator then wait for him to leave before exiting.
If you don't see him then stay in the Elevator and wait for him to stop at
the end of his patrol route by the Elevator, wait for him to leave, then
exit. Follow the Soldier but not closely. As you proceed forward down the
hallway you will notice Cameras posted on the walls.

You can't do anything suspicious in the 1st Basement or you will alert the
Soldiers through the Cameras. Shooting the Cameras will more than likely
alert the Soldiers (unless you make sure you aren't seen by the Camera while
you are shooting it). You will also see cubbyholes in the hallways. They can
be used to duck out of the way of patrolling Soldiers.

  **NOTE: If you are holding the AK then it is very important that you do 
          *NOT* enter first person mode while down here. When you enter that 
          mode then you hold the weapon for combat which will be seen through 
          the Cameras which will alert the Soldiers because they now think 
          you are attacking the place even if you don't fire a shot.

Turn right at the corner and duck into the first cubbyhole on your right
which is the entrance to one of the Guards Quarters. Don't enter the Guards
Quarters though - it has four Soldiers inside.

The Soldier you were following will stop about halfway down this section of
hallway near a three-way junction. Then he will turn and head north again.
Wait for him to pass then exit the cubbyhole and proceed south. However,
there is another Soldier patrolling the south end of this section of hallway.

You should see this Soldier head back south as you leave the cubbyhole. When
you get to the three-way junction then turn left and go through the door into
the Control Room.

The first thing you will run into is a stationary Soldier. But just go right
around him even though you will max out your Threat Meter in the process. He
won't do anything as long as you walk away from him. At the other end of this
room is a restricted door leading into the Server Room. Just before that is a
hallway to your left.

Go into the hallway and follow the path through the two doors to get to the
northeast corner of the Map. From here, head south and turn the next corner.
Proceed west and you will pass by the doors into the two Guard Quarters at
this corner of the Map. You will also see another restricted door.

This door leads into the Officer Quarters which contains an Officer Outfit
that you will need. But the door is locked and is being watched by a Camera.
Picking the lock will alert the Soldiers but there is another way to get
inside.

Continue west until you get near the door for the Sewer Station. But there is
a patrolling Soldier that goes from the Sewer Station to the Elevator to the
2nd Basement and back again. Wait for him to leave the Sewer Station then go
inside yourself. Bring out the Mini-Bomb and drop it near the designated
wall. If you have the AK then drop it here too. After dropping the Mini-Bomb
(and AK) then leave.

Go back east and to the corner. Look ahead and wait for the Guard to enter
and leave the Sewer Station. When you see him leave then bring out the Bomb
Remote, activate it to explode the Mini-Bomb, then Holster the Remote. The
explosion will bring out all of the Soldiers inside the Guards Quarters. They
will run towards the Sewer one at a time.

While you are at your current position then continue to look west. Keep an
eye out for the Soldiers leaving the Guards Quarters ahead of you. As each
one leaves then keep count in your head. The fourth Soldier will go through
the Officer Quarters and you will see him further ahead. After he leaves then
run into the Guard Quarters then into the Officer Quarters.

  >>Professional
    ************
      On this difficulty level you *CANNOT* run to the Guards Quarters - you 
      *MUST* walk. If you run then your cover will be blown and you will be 
      shot.

When you get into the Officer Quarters then change into the Officer Outfit on
the bed nearby and go back into the hallway and head west. Don't worry about
any Soldier you may pass along the way - as long as you mind your business
they won't do anything.

If you wanted to you could wait until the patrolling Soldier stopped in the
Sewer Station then detonated the Mini-Bomb thus eliminating him. However,
even though it won't count as a kill on your stats it will count as an Alert
when the other Soldiers find his body as they head back into the 1st
Basement.

And by detonating the Mini-Bomb at this point in the mission then you won't
have to worry about the Soldiers when you have to leave with the Prisoner.

Continue down the hallway which will lead you to the Elevator going down into
the 2nd Basement. You will notice a sign indicating that only officers are
allowed into that area which is why you need the Officer Outfit.

Get into the Elevator and go down into the 2nd Basement. When you get down
here then head to the north door to the Interrogation Room. The Interrogation
Room is where the General is grilling the Prisoner.

Don't try to open the door. Instead drop the Pager about a foot from it. Then
stand a little to the left of where you dropped the Pager. The Pager is used
in conjunction with the Phone. When you activate the Phone then the Pager
will beep.

This beeping will lure the General to you. Then use the 45-Degree Door Trick
to use the door as a shield and swing the Knife through the door to kill the
General. The use of the 45-Degree Door Trick was Jason's idea and works well
here.

After killing the General then grab his Combat Knife and rescue the Prisoner.
The Prisoner is Agent Smith, a CIA agent who you rescued twice in "Codename
47". When you have rescued Agent Smith then you will earn another bonus save.

From here, head back to the Elevator and Agent Smith, who is now disguised,
will follow. The following cutscene will indicate that the Soldiers are onto
you but that is really not the case. When you get back to the 1st Basement
then wait in the Elevator.

Wait for the patrolling Soldier to stand by the Elevator then turn around and
go in the other direction. When he gets past the gate then leave the Elevator
and follow him but not closely. When he turns to go into the Sewer Station
then continue ahead and stop near the door for the Officer Quarters. When you
see the Soldier return to the hallway then enter the Station.

You should find the passage you created earlier with the Mini-Bomb. Pick up
the AK (if you left it here) then go through the passage and run to the Exit
Point to successfully complete the mission.

The last General has defected to Germany and is staying at the Embassy. The
client wants the Suitcase the General took with him. The Suitcase contains a
guidance system that the General may try to sell. To make matters more
interesting the Russians are plenty mad that the General has defected and are
looking to acquire the Suitcase themselves.

There is going to be an invitation-only high class party at the Embassy and
lots of people will be attending. However, the Agency couldn't get an
invitation for you so you will have to be creative in order to get inside.
And worse, the Russians have managed to get one for a Spetznaz agent who is
assigned to retrieve the Suitcase.

You have to kill the General and get the Suitcase to successfully complete
this objective while avoiding or eliminating the Russian agent.

There are four levels to the Map:

  >>Streets
  >>Embassy 1st Floor
  >>Embassy 2nd Floor
  >>Embassy Basement

On the Streets Map you will find two Point of Interests. These are locked
gates that can be picked to gain entry. Your Agency Pickup is to the south of
the Embassy.

On the Embassy 1st Floor you will find two more Point of Interests. These are
two of the four Safe Rooms where the Suitcase can be randomly found at. The
other two Safe Rooms are on the Embassy 2nd Floor.

The Embassy Basement has three Point of Interests. The one to the west is the
Champagne Glass that you can get to help you poison the General. The one just
east of that is a Guard Room that has some ammo. The last one just northeast
of that is where you can find a Waiter Outfit.

| Floor.                                                                    |
|                                                                           |
| Take the left set and when you get to the top then turn and head south    |
| then go through the set of double doors. After that then go straight into |
| the wall ahead of you and you should get the action to Open Door. If not  |
| then move into the corner.                                                |
|                                                                           |
| After going through this door and the next one then you will be on the    |
| balcony. On the crates there is Sniper Ammo, a Tuxedo, and the W2000      |
| Sniper. There is also a Guard patrolling the balcony. You need to wait    |
| for him to be at the east end before going after the weapon.              |
|                                                                           |
| On the PC version you can grab the rifle and drop it over the west side   |
| of the balcony which has part of a railing missing. You have to be        |
| looking south and your right side against the opening when you drop the   |
| weapon.                                                                   |
|                                                                           |
| It should drop to the ground below. Then go back down to get it then      |
| avoid the Guard patrols and party guests as you head to the gate leading  |
| back outside.                                                             |
|                                                                           |
| Unfortunately, on the console versions, this is much tougher to do        |
| because it is very inconsistent. 95% of the time when you try to drop it  |
| over the side then it will bounce back onto the balcony.                  |
|                                                                           |
| Worse, if you try to continue dropping it over the side, then it may      |
| glitch onto part of the balcony and you may not be able to pick it up     |
| again. And there is no disguise that can allow you to walk out with the   |
| Sniper Rifle without pissing off the Guards and getting shot at.          |
|                                                                           |
| Probably the best thing to do on the console versions is to Rampage your  |
| way through and kill most everybody to get the SMG, the .54 Pistol from   |
| the Agent, and the W2000 Sniper.                                          |
|                                                                           |
| However, before Rampaging, you should safely acquire the Suitcase (as     |
| well as the .54 Pistol from the Agent) and drop it off by the boat first. |
| Then go back and shoot the General with the silenced Pistol (near the     |
| room with the Maid) and then start killing the Guards to thin them out    |
| enough to safely get the W2000 Sniper and SMG.                            |
|                                                                           |
| After acquiring the weapons then go back to the Exit Point to             |
| successfully complete the mission then redo it later to clean up your     |
| score.                                                                    |

This one I played around with for a long time trying out many different ideas
to create a Silent/Perfect Assassin strategy. And I came up with a really
nice one that allows you to dump the Waiter into the water to safely get him
out of the way.

  >>Xbox 360 and PS3 Versions
    *************************
      If you also acquired an AK from any of the previous missions then you 
      may also get the {All Assault Rifles Collected} Accomplishment at the 
      end of this one. This is because, if you earned a Silent Assassin 
      rating on all four of the St. Petersburg missions, then you will 
      acquire the M4 rifle and that is the only other Assault Rifle in the 
      game.

      This is also a good place to get the {Call the Caddy} Accomplishment. 
      Use the 9mm Pistol SD to thin out the Guards and use the Golf Club on 
      the unarmed Civilians including the Target. If you get killed then 
      simply restart and repeat until you get the Accomplishment.

0===========================================================================0
|=========================| Standard/PA Strategy |==========================|
0===========================================================================0

When you start the mission then you will be on the dock which is also your
Exit Point. If you brought the AK from the previous mission then drop it
here. To start, Prep the Anaesthetic. Then run up the stairs and do a
180-degree turn when you get to the top and run southwest towards the street.

When you get to the street then head west towards the Embassy. Near the
southeast corner of the Embassy is a gate. There is a Waiter near where you
started that has the key but there is no need to deal with him. There are two
Guards that patrol nearby - one in the alley to the east and one inside the
compound.

When both are safely away from the gate then Pick the Lock and enter the
compound. Head northwest to the main entrance and go inside. You will then
enter the Lobby. There should be two stairs that lead up the second floor as
well as the door leading to the BallRoom ahead of you. To your left and right
are doors that go into the hallways that ring the building.

There are two tasks that need to be done - getting the Suitcase and killing
the General. The first task I am going to do is killing the General.

Go through the door to the hallways on the left and head to the room at the
northwest corner of this floor. There should be a Maid inside. This is also
where the General visits from time to time. His patrol goes from the BallRoom
to this room. However, the Maid never leaves this room so you need to deal
with her first before going after the General.

To complicate matters the amount of time that the General spends in the
BallRoom before heading back to this room varies from version to version. In
some versions he will stay awhile before going back and in others he will
immediately turn around. So you need to quickly attack the Maid before he
returns.

The good thing is that you can stay in the room while the General is inside.
While he is inside then follow the Maid and get up against her backside
(yeah, I know what you're thinking - stop it, we've got a mission to
complete).

When the General leaves and the door closes then get into Sneak Mode, bring
out the Anaesthetic, and Sedate her. If you do not go into Sneak Mode then
she will run for the Guards when you bring out the weapon. After Sedating her
then quickly drag her body to the back of the room.

Then stand at the center of the door and bring out your Knife. The General
will try to enter but you are blocking the way. Swing the Knife through the
door as he tries to get inside. He may force his way inside but he will drop
dead from your attack. Grab his body and drop him inside the room to the
east.

Then go back to the northwest corner of this hallway, hide yourself around
the corner, and rotate the camera so you are looking towards the door for the
BallRoom.

While you are waiting then find out which of the Safe Rooms the Ambassador is
visiting. When the Maid wakes up then she will go to one of the Guards who
will then visit her room and then both will return to their duties. Wait for
things to settle back down again before doing anything else.

The Suitcase is hidden in one of four Safes inside the Embassy. The
Ambassador will occasionally leave the Ballroom to go to the Safe Room that
has the Suitcase (the Safe that has the Suitcase also has some Chocolates
that the Ambassador likes). Then, after visiting the Safe, he will head back
to the Ballroom, stay for awhile, and go back.

In addition, the Spetznaz Agent will also be in the BallRoom. He is waiting
for the right moment to hold up the Ambassador and make him go to the Safe so
he can open it. Then the Agent will take the Suitcase, kill the Ambassador,
and leave.

However, you can determine when the Agent will attack the Ambassador. As long
as you stay outside the BallRoom then the Agent won't do anything regardless
of how long you sit outside in the Lobby. Going inside the BallRoom will
alert him to your presence and he will need to make a move before you can
stop him.

Which is good because I want the Agent to go after the Ambassador so I can
get rid of him and acquire his .54 Pistol plus get the Suitcase for myself.
Since the Agent is also a Target he won't count as a Kill on your stats.

What's interesting is that if you get the Suitcase before the Agent does then
he will leave the Embassy and try to ambush you near the dock. If you Kill
him out here then, even though he is a Target, he *WILL* count as a Kill. But
it is always best to just get him out of the way and keep him from springing
any surprises on you.

To get the Agent to attack the Ambassador you need to get inside the
BallRoom. However, wait for the Ambassador to leave first before going
inside.

When he gets to the Safe then leave the BallRoom and go to the room next door
to the designated Safe Room. Then stand just to the left of the double doors
that go into the Safe Room, enter Sneak Mode, and bring out your Knife or
Fiber Wire.

  >>Xbox 360 and PS3 Versions
    *************************
      If you want the {Jack the Ripper} Accomplishment then I recommend using 
      your newly acquired Combat Knife against the Agent. The only other 
      Knife left is the Scalpel and you won't get that until near the end of 
      the game.

Right after the Ambassador gets back to the BallRoom then the Agent will make
his move. Wait for them to enter the Safe Room then open the door and use the
Camera to watch the action. When the Agent stops and points the gun at the
Ambassador then make your move.

By the time you get to the Agent then the Ambassador will have opened the
Safe. Knife or Wire the Agent then grab his .54 Pistol. Get out of Sneak Mode
and grab the Suitcase. Leave the Ambassador alone - he will be in the corner
and won't do anything. After this then go back to the dock to successfully
complete the mission.

However, when you open the Suitcase you find that the guidance system has
already been sold to someone who lives in Japan. After this then you will be
back in your Tool Shed at Gontranno.

If you've done everything correctly up to this point then you should have the
following weapons inside the Tool Shed:

You overall task is to eliminate Masahiro Hayamoto, a well known arms dealer
who is the person that has the guidance system. However, he is very seclusive
and has many castles throughout Japan. You need to be able to find him so you
can kill him and retrieve the valuable item. There are four missions here and
you won't be able to go back to your Tool Shed until you complete the last
one.

the south side of the building. There are also many Guards here as well.

You will also find three Points of Interests. The first one, at the northeast
corner, is where you can find the Fugu Fish that you can use to poison
Hayamoto Jr.

The second one, west of that, is where you can find a change of clothes so
you can disguise yourself. The last one, at the southeast corner, is the Car
Garage where you can find a beat up Car that you can use as a distraction.

| General Notes \
0=======================================================>

This is the only mission in which you encounter the Fugu Fish. Fugu is a type
of puffer fish that is considered a delicacy in Japan. However, it is also
very poisonous due to certain bacteria that produces a very nasty
tetrodotoxin that the fish is immune to. This poison is a type of neurotoxin
that kills by paralyzing the muscles until the victim dies of asphyxiation.

Worse, the victim remains conscious the whole time while he is dying. Pretty
scary way to go since it takes, on average, several hours to die (however one
can die in as little as twenty minutes depending an the amount of poison
ingested).

So Fugu must be specially prepared to prevent major poisonings although a
very tiny amount can sometimes be ingested during a meal but not causing
anything more than a slight numbness of the lips and tongue (which is part of
the appeal).

Although there is no antidote you can still survive a major Fugu poisoning
with appropriate medical attention until the poison dissipates. Given that
Agent 47 is a trained assassin he is probably well versed in all kinds of
poisons including Fugu. Judging on what he pulls out of the fish I am
guessing that it is the liver which is the most poisonous part of Fugu.

Enough to make a dish to die for. Literally.

As for the mission itself it is a straightforward task with really only one
way to Sneak inside. It's a pretty easy mission to get a Silent Assassin
rating in. But it is much tougher to get a Perfect Assassin score though.

The reason has to do with one of the most basic rules of the game. That being
the only way a body is generated is through your direct action. If a body is
found, regardless of whether or not you Killed or Sedated him, then your
score will be negatively affected. This isn't the only mission where this
rule comes into play and I will go more into it in the next mission.

You cannot leave the mission until Hayamoto Jr. dies. But you have time from
the moment you poison his plate to get to the Exit Point safely. The thing
here is that when he dies, and you get the "Info: Objective Status Changed",
then it is immediately followed by the "Body Found" warning which gives you
almost no time to avoid an Alert.

To compound matters you cannot just stand at the Exit Point to exit the
mission immediately when he dies. You *MUST* walk or run into the Exit Point
to leave.

The problem with this issue comes from the fact that Hayamoto drops dead in
front of multiple people - and leaves you with no way to hide the body to
keep your score from being negatively affected. Since you did poison the dish
he did die through your direct action and thus you score will be affected.

But who prepares the dishes that you can poison? The cook.

So, by following basic logic, when you poison the dish you also frame him in
the process. When Hayamoto Jr. drops dead then they should go after the cook
thinking that he either wrongfully prepared the Fugu or deliberately killed
him with it. And your score shouldn't suffer as a result because they
wouldn't think about an outside assassin.

Therefore, you should only get a "Hayamoto died from poisoning" message
instead of an Alert. That's my opinion anyway.

However, despite this problem, that doesn't mean that you cannot get a
Perfect Assassin score. Street_Genius, over at GameFAQs, came up with a
reliable way to help you avoid this Alert if you wish to have a perfect score
and I will cover that at the end of the mission.

0===========================================================================0
|=========================| Standard/PA Strategy |==========================|
0===========================================================================0

When you start the mission then you will be behind a large rock just east of
the Exit Point. On the path on the other side of the rock should be a couple
of Guards. At this point you should also see a Guard appear from the front
door northeast of your position. There is another Guard patrolling the
driveway area by the car garage to the east of the front door.

When the Guard by the front door goes back inside and two Guards on the
nearby path start moving west then walk east towards the Car Garage. When you
get onto the path then run northeast towards the sandy area near the front
door.

When you get onto that then run east until you get to the end then stop
running and begin walking again. You should see the Car Garage ahead of you
and to the left. You should also see three garage doors. Enter the one on the
left and you should see the beat up Car to your right. Go to the Car and Honk
Horn. This will attract a nearby Guard.

To the west is the door that leads inside. By the door is a trash can. Run
and hide behind the trash can then enter Sneak Mode. When the Guard enters
the garage and is far enough from you then Sneak around the trash can and
enter the house.

Continue Sneaking forward and go through the door on your right when you near
the end of this small hallway. After going through this door then turn left
and Sneak through the next door. Ahead of you should be a large translucent
door. You can see through it but, thankfully, the Guards cannot.

On the other side of this door is a patrolling Guard. When he passes by the
door then open and go through it, turn right and stick close to the wall, and
Sneak forward to the next door. Go through it and Sneak through the next door
which is north of you. Then go to the next door, go through it, and turn
left. Your goal is the room northwest of you that has a PoI.

There are two patrolling Guards that go through this hallway but they are
slowly heading in opposite directions at this point. They will slowly head
outside then turn around and come back again.

The room that you are heading to has a change of clothes that will serve as
your disguise for the remainder of this mission. After Changing Clothes then
get out of Sneak Mode and head to the room next door east of you. Here you
will find an SMG so grab it and Holster it if you need it.

Head back to the south room then stand by the door and check your Map (or
look through the Keyhole on Professional difficulty). Wait for the two
hallway patrolling Guards to stop by the door. When they meet and go back out
again then leave this room and head east towards the Kitchen.

Keep your distance from the patrolling Guard as you enter the Kitchen. You
will notice a large table that dominates the room. On both ends of the table
are plates of food. You can place the Transmitter on either plate but wait
until you get the Fugu Fish first.

As the patrolling Guard gets to the door leading outside then head to the
room that has the Fugu Fish. When you get inside then Cut Fugu Fish and check
your Map. In addition to the patrolling Guards there is also a cook that
stands around in the Kitchen. However, he will leave the room on occasion to
get a smoke outside.

When the Kitchen is clear and before the patrolling Guard goes back inside
then go into the Kitchen and place the Transmitter and Poisoned Fish into one
of the two plates but I prefer the one at the north end of the table.

It should be pointed out that the Concubine that serves Hayamoto Jr. will
begin to serve the plates when you cut the Fugu Fish. She will grab the dish
at the south end of the table first. By placing the Transmitter and Poisoned
Fish on the plate at the north end then you will give yourself more time to
safely reach the Exit Point.

From here then go out the door to the north and turn east. Then walk all the
way to the fence and turn south until you reach the driveway at the Car
Garage. From here, run west but get back on the sand. Stop just as you reach
grass then walk again. Head to the Exit Point but stay on the grass. As you
are nearing the Exit Point then the Concubine will begin to bring the plates
to Hayamoto Jr.

When she brings the contaminated plate it will take a few seconds for the
Transmitter to be ingested. Then later Hayamoto Jr. will drop dead as the
poison from the Fugu Fish quickly takes effect. When this happens then you
are allowed to leave. Then walk to the Exit Point, regardless of the two
nearby patrolling Guards, to successfully complete the mission.

  >>Avoiding the Alert
    ******************
      For those looking for a clean run here is what you need to do according 
      to Street_Genius. When the Guards have walked away after the Concubine 
      has delivered the second plate then go onto the walkway. Look down and 
      you should see the individual blocks for the path. A few feet away from 
      the door you should see one crack that goes all the way across. Stand 
      on it and face the door.

      Shortly thereafter you should get the first Info Notification telling 
      you that the Transmitter has been ingested. When the second Info 
      Notification appears (Hayamoto's death) then *IMMEDIATELY* run for the 
      door and *IMMEDIATELY* skip the closing cutscene.

      According to Street_Genius time does not stop during the cutscene and 
      you will still get an Alert even if you didn't see the notification on 
      your way to the door.

Your work in the previous mission has paid off. Hayamoto Sr. has emerged at
one of his castles in central Japan. But you have to make your way through
some rather tough security to get there. You need to navigate through a large
valley that also has an Underground Tunnel.

There are many Guards that patrol the area and are on high alert. They will
always run to check you out if you get within sight distance. In addition,
there are several large towers that contain Snipers wielding Custom Rifles.
This makes it a rather challenging task to get to the Exit Point.

| The Map \
0=======================================================>

There are two levels to the Map:

  >>Valley
  >>Underground Tunnel

On the Valley Map you will see that your Exit Point is at the southeast part
of this large Map. The Agency Pickup is by the side of a large building which
is the west entry point of the large Underground Tunnel. The other entry
point is at the southeast corner of the Map not far from the Exit Point.

You will also notice several Ladders that lead down into the Underground
Tunnel. In addition, there are multiple Guard Towers that are stationed by
the Custom Rifle wielding Snipers. And there are lots of Guard patrols all
around the Valley.

Inside the Underground Tunnel you will also find plenty of Guards. A couple
of them will patrol inside and outside the west end of the tunnel entry
point.

A bunch more will be stationed at the east entry point. The smaller rooms
that have the ladders that lead up into the Valley will usually have a Guard
on patrol. One of the rooms in the center of the tunnel is heavily populated
with Katana Sword wielding Guards. There are also four additional Guards just
outside.

This is the Vehicle Checkpoint area where the Trucks that go in, out, and
through the Tunnel are stopped and checked out for intruders.

Finally, there are two north-south tunnel sections that contain three
patrolling Guards in each.

| General Notes \
0=======================================================>

This was a particularly difficult mission to figure out due to the over
sensitive Guards. One of the irritating things about this mission, despite
the nighttime darkness and the snow, as well as the darkness inside the
tunnel, the Guards can easily spot you because most of them are wearing
Nightvision Goggles.

Worse, even though you are covered head to toe, they can still identify you
as a "gaijin". This is because your hands, which, given you skin complexion
should be pretty white, are exposed and will identify you as a foreigner.

The mission is designed to make you take an overland route because of the
Vehicle Checkpoint. If you got inside a Truck and took it inside the Tunnel
then the Guards at the Vehicle Checkpoint will find you inside of it no
matter what you do which usually results in Bad Things happening. Without the
Checkpoint then the mission would be way too easy since all you would have to
do is to enter a Truck and take it all the way to the end.

There is also one very interesting thing about these Guards that you can use
to your advantage. When one sees you and runs towards you then he will check
your ID first before doing anything to you. Even more interesting is that you
can arm yourself while he is running to you.

Normally if you bring out a weapon, unless it is an approved weapon, when a
Guard approaches then the Guard will immediately attack. Not these Guards.
When one gets to you then he will stand there while he is checking your ID.
If he manages to completely check your ID and finds that you are not supposed
to be there *THEN* he will attack you.

So, if you are appropriately armed by the time he approaches, then you can
either safely Kill or Sedate him while he is standing there checking your ID.

0=======================0
| The Flat Ninja Problem \
0=======================================================>

Before going into the strategy part of this chapter I need to go over the
single most annoying problem in the entire "Hitman" series: The Flat Ninja.

Basically what happens is that at some point during your run-through you will
get an Alert for no reason followed by a warning about the Guards finding the
body of a dead Ninja even though you may not have killed anybody. What has
happened is that one of the Ninjas at the Vehicle Checkpoint in the
Underground Tunnel was killed by a Truck hence a Flat Ninja.

While this won't affect your ability to successfully complete the mission a
Flat Ninja will prevent you from earning a Silent Assassin score because you
will get two Alerts.

In the previous mission I mentioned that one of the basic rules of the game
is that the only way a body is generated is through your direct action. If
the body is found then your score would be negatively impacted because you
didn't hide the body.

Unfortunately, there are actually two missions in the game where a Guard can
be killed through actions that you had absolutely had nothing to do with -
here and in the mission "The Motorcade Interception" (I'll get to that
later).

If you look closely at the Vehicle Checkpoint on the Map you will see four
Ninjas - two on the left and two on the right. The two on the right are not
in line with each other. The bottom one is slightly more to the left than the
other - roughly about a foot and a half.

When a Truck stops at the Checkpoint then it will be about two to two and a
half feet from the bottom Ninja. Then, about two seconds later, this Ninja
will simply drop dead as though he had a sudden heart attack. If one of his
buddies runs to him and he is the same distance from the Truck as his now
dead buddy then he will die too.

This also points out another part of this problem - improper collision
detection. If 47 is hit by a Truck then he will die which, of course, makes
sense. But, as it turns out, the actual contact point extends about two feet
from the front of the Truck instead of the vehicle itself. And this contact
point is lethal even if it is standing still.

What is more interesting is that not all Ninjas are affected by the Trucks.
The ones that carry Katana Swords are immune to them as I've seen them get
hit and nothing happens to them.

But a Flat Ninja doesn't happen all of the time. This points out the last
part of this problem - randomness. You already know that "Hitman 2" is
probably the most random game ever put out. So it would stand to reason that
it would affect this mission as well.

Even though the truck appears to stop in the same place when at the
Checkpoint it probably isn't stopping at the *EXACT* same point within it. It
may randomly stop a few pixels closer to the closest Ninja than the last
Truck which may push the contact point just close enough to him to cause a
Flat Ninja.

When he just starts moving to go behind the Truck then he will touch the
point and drop dead. This may explain the slight delay after the Truck stops.

So why wasn't this fixed? The game was initially built on the PC and was
later ported to all the other platforms. On the PC this problem occurs
infrequently so this may have been considered a low priority problem and not
corrected because IOI felt that it wouldn't be much of an issue. However,
when you port a game to another machine, the new hardware may cause slight
changes to how the game engine behaves.

The first port was to the PS2 and it happens infrequently there. Same with
the Xbox. But this occurs more on the GameCube version and way more on the
Xbox 360 (about 90%).

Even though this was a low priority issue this could've been easily and
quickly fixed by one of two means: 1) by making all of the Ninjas immune to
the Trucks and 2) simply moving the closest Ninja to be in line with his
buddy.

With this problem explained is there anything one can do to prevent a Flat
Ninja? In previous versions of this guide I played around with different ways
to prevent it and had no success. But, during my Professional run-through on
the PS3, I stumbled onto something and played around with it.

After some refinement and verification on all six platforms I have found a
reasonably reliable method to prevent a Flat Ninja which leads to.....

0===========================================================================0
|=======================| Perfect Assassin Strategy |=======================|
0===========================================================================0

This strategy works by disrupting the inspection process at the Checkpoint.
If done right then the inspection will freeze thus stopping the Trucks and
preventing a Flat Ninja.

It is important to point out that this method may not work the very first
time you try it regardless of how well you do it. Either you will be
identified which will cause the Ninjas to shoot at you or the Truck will be
allowed to pass. If the Truck is allowed to pass then the next Truck will
cause a Flat Ninja.

If you reload from a save point before the Checkpoint or restart the mission
then this trick will work. I do not know why this happens but it needs to be
pointed out.

When you start the mission then you will be at the northwest corner of the
Valley. Just southeast of you is the west Tunnel entry point. Bring out your
Anaesthetic and run east along the trees then turn south to head toward the
large building while using the trees as cover against the Sniper that is
south of your position.

If he does manage to track you then, by running, he won't be able to hit you.
In addition, this warning does not count as an Alert so you will still have a
clean score.

When you get to the large building then run east along the north side and
stop at the northeast corner. Nearby is the Agency Pickup. But there is also
a Guard on patrol nearby. Enter Sneak Mode and, when he turns back south,
then go around the corner and get behind him. Sedate him then Change Clothes.
Then run to the Pickup and grab the Crossbow for your weapon collection.

Then run back to the road close to your starting point and wait for a Truck.
Climb into it when it stops then switch to the Underground Tunnel map. You
will see that there are four long horizontal straightaways and two vertical
straightaways. The horizontal and vertical portions are connected by short
angled sections. There is also a longer angled section in the middle.

The Checkpoint is in the center of the second horizontal section. You may
also notice that there are three Guards in each of the two vertical sections
but they are frozen. They won't start moving until you get close enough to
them. This info is useful for what you need to do later.

You will eventually enter the Tunnel and appear on the map. You'll
occasionally pause as the Trucks plod through the Tunnel. As you reach the
angled section at the south end of the first vertical section then get out of
the map.

  **NOTE: If you're playing on Normal or Expert difficulty then I highly 
          recommend that you make a save here - especially if you're playing 
          the GameCube version (I'll explain why a little later).

After getting out of the map then go to the end of the Truck but stay inside.
When you make the angled turn towards the Checkpoint then *RUN* out of the
Truck, run southwest towards the median, run around the west end of the
pillar to your left, then go around to the south end of this pillar and run
east while staying off the road and close to the pillars.

The pillar you ran around should be the *FIRST* pillar in this straightaway.
Keep running until you get to the *EIGHTH* pillar. This pillar is next to the
Checkpoint and, if you ran from the very moment you left the Truck, then the
Truck will arrive about the same time you do.

When you get to the eighth pillar then stop running about halfway across and
get into sneak mode. Quickly rotate the camera north so 47 is looking at the
pillar and sidestep right until you are about 4/5 of the way to the corner.
You should see the gap between the pillars to your right and you should also
see the now stopped Truck.

You will also see one of the Ninjas walk from right to left as he heads to
the back of the Truck. As he's walking then sidestep right until your right
elbow is at the corner of the pillar. Once the Ninja disappears from view
then quickly rotate right and sneak east to the next pillar. While you're
sneaking then hover one of your fingers over the Sneak Mode Button (Xbox and
GC) or Run Button (everything else).

When you get to the next pillar it may look like you have just gotten out of
view but you will be seen. The very moment you are seen and the words "Stop
it!" appears on the bottom of the screen then immediately get out of Sneak
Mode and start running. Do not stop running until you reach the last pillar
in this straightaway. When you get to this pillar then quickly get to its
east side and stop.

If you've done everything right then the two Ninjas that inspect the Truck
will give chase but quickly break off their pursuit. The top Ninja, the one
closest to the Truck, will go back and finish his inspection. The bottom
Ninja, the one furthest from the Truck will start walking back to it.

The top Ninja will finish the inspection and will go to his position along
the wall. The two Ninjas at the front of the Truck will spilt up to let the
Truck through. However, the bottom Ninja hasn't gotten back to the rear of
the Truck yet to finish his work. When he gets there then the ensuing
confusion will cause him to freeze thus stopping the inspection and the
Trucks.

And, since the Trucks no longer move, then there will be no risk of a Flat
Ninja through the rest of the mission.

With that done let's go back to the subject of the Guards in the vertical
sections. As noted they won't move until you get close to them. The Guards
will weave through the pillars and the ends of their patrol patterns are in
the angled sections.

Obviously it is difficult to dodge three moving Guards through these pillars.
But, if you position yourself correctly, then you can get them to freeze into
a single easy to dodge group. You are in the center of an invisible zone and
you need to put the right edge of this zone in the right place to make this
happen.

From your current position, go straight east to the wall of the longer angled
section and head southeast along it. When you reach the angled corner, stop.
When you look at the map you will see that two of the three Guards in the
second vertical section will move but the one in the south angled section
remains frozen.

By putting yourself here then you have placed the right edge of this
invisible zone on the right side of the vertical section. The bottom Guard is
in the angled section and just beyond this line so he remains frozen. When
the other two Guards get to his position then they will freeze here too. When
they are all together then you can make your next move.

  **NOTE: If you're playing on Professional difficulty then wait about four 
          minutes since you can't see the Guards on the map.

After they are all stopped then run east and go through the next angled
section of the Tunnel. When you get to the north end of the vertical Tunnel
section then you will see a pillar. From this pillar go south along the
*WEST* side of the pillars then stop at the north side of the *FOURTH*
pillar. Then enter Sneak Mode and angle the Camera so you can see along the
west side of the pillar.

You will then see the three Guards move as a group toward you as they weave
between the pillars. When they disappear at the south side of your pillar
then carefully Sneak south along the west side of the pillar.

The reason you have to Sneak along this pillar is that the Guards here have
sensitive hearing and if you try to walk along then they may hesitate as
though they heard something. By Sneaking forward then you will prevent this.

When you get to the next corner of this pillar then angle southeast and Sneak
to the south side of it. Then get out of Sneak Mode and run along the east
side of the remaining pillars and turn the next angled corner. Continue
running forward and stop running just before you get to the door which should
be to your left (it will also have a light above it). This door is part of a
garage area with a Truck.

It will also have a patrolling Guard slowly going around it. You need to
carefully avoid him and head to the Ladder in the room by the north end of
the vehicle.

When he goes along the east side of the Truck then run to the door leading
into the ladder room and quickly climb the Ladder. When you get to the top
then run southeast and past the large building (the Tunnel entrance) and to
the Exit Point to successfully complete the mission.

Some console notes:

  >>GameCube Version
    ****************
      When a Flat Ninja occurs on the other consoles it usually occurs after 
      you go beyond the Checkpoint regardless of whether or not you are in 
      the Tunnel or above. Getting a Flat Ninja before this point is rare 
      even on the Xbox 360 version.

      However, on the GC version, you can get early Flat Ninjas about 15% of 
      the time which makes this problem more aggravating because it will 
      happen before you can get in position to do anything about it.

      This version has another problem that no other console has - the Trucks 
      may freeze on their own at random but has nothing to do with the 
      Checkpoint. One of the Trucks exiting the west end of the Tunnel may 
      get stuck on the incline as it exits thus causing the freeze.

      Depending on where you are when it happens this may not be a bad thing 
      since it will prevent a Flat Ninja. If you are outside waiting to get 
      on a Truck when this happens then you can do the standard overland 
      method.

      If you are inside the Tunnel when it happens then this can be a bad 
      thing since there is no way to get past the Checkpoint safely without a 
      Truck to get in the way of the Ninjas there.

0===========================================================================0
|===========================| Standard Strategy |===========================|
0===========================================================================0

This strategy uses a route that goes over the land to one of the ladders
beyond the Checkpoint. The start of the mission is just like the PA method in
that you go and ambush one of the Ninjas for his Outfit.

The difference is that afterwards you run straight south towards the hills
that border the area and stop when you get there. The goal is to enter the
dead-end valley just to the east. Also east of you are four patrolling Guards
with varying speed patterns. They are also very sensitive - they can easily
see you from a distance and have a wide angle of view.

When all of the Guards are far away from this valley then enter it and stop
when you get to the end. Look north to find the Guards again.

Your next goal is the path to the northeast. When the Guards are far enough
away that then run north and turn east. Continue east until you reach the
shelter for a Ladder. Near is is a path that goes south. This path dead-ends
to the east with another Ladder. This is where you need to go. However, there
is a Guard that is patrolling nearby.

Run into this area and bring out your Anaesthetic (which will cause you to
drop the Crossbow). Simply run up to this Guard, get him to notice you, then
Sedate him when he checks your ID. Then go back to retrieve your Crossbow and
proceed east to the Ladder.

When you get to the shelter then get to the top of the Ladder and look down
into the room below. In addition to this room there are a couple of others.
Slowly patrolling these rooms is a Guard. He will eventually enter the room
below then leave.

  **NOTE: On the PS2 version he might not enter this room. Go down the Ladder 
          and look through the Keyhole on the door or on the Map to wait for 
          him to turn north past the door before following him into the 
          larger room.

When he leaves then climb down the Ladder, enter Sneak Mode, then enter into
the larger room. Turn right and head for the boxes against the wall ahead of
you. Get up against the boxes and wait for him to enter the next room. Then
sneak up to the door, stand to the right, and open the door. Ahead of you is
a group of boxes.

The Guard will go to the southwest corner of the room, stop, and then head to
the northeast corner. Wait for him to get behind the boxes before sneaking
inside. When you sneak inside then turn left to go through the door into the
Tunnel. When you enter the Tunnel then go straight north to the opposite wall
then turn left and stop at the angled corner.

You should be at the southeast end of the longer angled section in the center
of the Tunnel. Stay here until you get the three Guards in the next section
to freeze before doing anything else.

By going over land then more than likely the Trucks should be moving through
the Tunnel regardless of whether or not you suffered a Flat Ninja. In this
case then wait for a Truck to pass this corner and quickly run to the back so
you can get in. If you can't get in then run back to the corner and wait for
the next one.

Once you get in the Truck then you can ride it all the way outside. By
waiting for the Guards to freeze beforehand then they will have their backs
to you as you head south past them. Once you get outside then get out of the
Truck when it stops and run to the Exit Point to successfully complete the
mission.

On rare occasions the Checkpoint inspection may freeze on their own (happens
more on the PS2 version). If this happens then proceed through the Tunnel on
foot as written in the PA strategy and complete the mission.

Now that you've made it through the valley you need to enter the castle
itself. Like before, there are many high alert Guards and Snipers in the
towers. In addition, you need to switch off the Generators that power the
Alarm Grid before you can enter the Castle.

On the Valley Map you will find many Guards patrolling this large area. There

near the Castle. There are several Snipers within the Castle and one in a
Guard Tower just south of it.

The Castle Map shows the interior areas of the Castle. This is especially

| Like in the previous mission, there are no entry points into the towers   |
| so you can't get at the Snipers to acquire a Custom Rifle.                |
|                                                                           |
| However, you can still get this weapon during this mission. This is       |
| because the Snipers stand much closer to the windows than the ones in the |
| previous mission. And acquiring a Custom Rifle is not that difficult      |
| either.                                                                   |
|                                                                           |
| If you look at the Guard Towers with the Binoculars then you should see   |
| the Snipers through the windows. When a Sniper is just standing there     |
| then he will have the Custom Rifle against his chest. If you kill him     |
| with either a Crossbow or Sniper Rifle then both the Sniper and the       |
| weapon will drop straight down and onto the floor.                        |
|                                                                           |
| But, if he acquires you and starts firing, then he will stick the weapon  |
| out the window. If you kill him while he is firing at you then the weapon |
| will fall out the window. However, the weapon may get caught on the roof  |
| which may prevent it from falling down onto the ground and you won't be   |
| able to get it.                                                           |
|                                                                           |
| There is one Sniper that I am going to target for easy weapon             |
| acquisition. There is a Sniper just northwest of the Exit Point. He looks |
| out a window that has nothing beneath it. Killing him while he is firing  |
| at you will make the weapon fall to the ground so you can get it.         |
|                                                                           |
| Play through the mission as written and shut down the first Generator.    |
| Since you will be doing some killing you may as well kill the two Guards  |
| that you would've normally Sedated. Pick up the SMG-SD6 and ammo from     |
| both.                                                                     |
|                                                                           |
| After the first Generator then head to the path that leads to the front   |
| entrance. Like as it is written, wait for the patrolling Guard to go left |
| to right and out of view first before doing anything. However, instead of |
| heading to the door, then angle northeast to stand against the wall and   |
| with the Guard Tower about ten feet behind you.                           |
|                                                                           |
| Back up and look up until you can see the Sniper. Then kill him with a    |
| quick burst with the SMG-SD6. This will prevent him from becoming a       |
| problem later. He looks towards the Sniper you are targeting and you      |
| don't want to risk getting shot in the back as you try for the Custom     |
| Rifle.                                                                    |
|                                                                           |
| After killing the Sniper then go to the right of the door and wait for    |
| the patrolling Guard to go west through the next door before going to     |
| turn off the second Generator. Shut down the second and third Generator   |
| switches and head towards the Exit Point as written. However, instead of  |
| going to the Exit Point, run towards and drop down into the stairwell     |
| south of the targeted Sniper.                                             |
|                                                                           |
| If everything has gone right then he should not be hostile to you and     |
| won't fire at you. Go up the stairwell until you see him then fire *ONE*  |
| shot into his torso and quickly pull back. This will get his attention    |
| and make him hostile so he can fire at you and stick his weapon out the   |
| window.                                                                   |
|                                                                           |
| Gently go up the stairs until you just see his window again. Aim your     |
| sight at him and continue to gently go up. The moment he acquires you     |
| then fire a quick burst and pull back. He will fire on you anyway but,    |
| because you presented such a small target, he will miss.                  |
|                                                                           |
| If you did everything right then he will be killed by the quick burst and |
| the weapon will be on the ground ahead of you. If he wasn't killed then   |
| repeat the process until he is dead. After safely acquiring the Custom    |
| Rifle then finish the mission and return here later to clean up your      |
| score and acquire the SMG-SD6.                                            |

Although there are plenty of Guards most of them surround the Castle and
won't pose a problem using this strategy which is based on Jason's Perfect
Assassin work. As usual, I have also added my own observations and tweaks to
it.

0===========================================================================0
|=========================| Standard/PA Strategy |==========================|
0===========================================================================0

When the mission starts then you will be in the large dark gray area at the
west part of the Valley. If you brought the Crossbow with you from the
previous mission then you can drop it. Ahead of you is a higher ridge that
you need to get up onto.

From your starting point, run southwest to the rock wall and you will find
the way upward onto this ridge. Once you get up onto the ridge then turn
east. You should see the edge of the ridge to your left and three trees, in a
line, to your right. Run east and, when you get to the third tree, then turn
right. You should find another tree about ten feet from where you just
turned.

Go past this tree and stop at the next one. If you are in the right place
then you will also be real close to the ridge edge (about five feet). Next,
enter Sneak Mode, bring out your Anaesthetic, and angle your Camera until you
can see the Guard that is patrolling this ridge. You need to find him and
make sure that the tree you are at is between you and him. Use the Red
Crosshair to track him through the tree (if available).

Eventually he will head in your direction. Use the Camera and move yourself
so the Guard doesn't see you as he passes you. Once he passes you then go
around the tree to get behind him so you can Sneak up and Sedate him. After
Sedating him then Change Clothes.

From here, head along the edge of the ridge, drop down, and continue east.
Check your Map and you should see the ridge edges. Just ahead of you is the
another ridge edge. The main foot path cuts through the ridge and drops down.

Stay along the hills at the south edge of the area. Continue east until you
just get past where the path drops down then stop and look north. If you are
in the right place then you should see the ridge edge to the left and in
front of you, a large hill ahead, and a trio of trees to the right.

Also ahead of you, on the foot path, is a single Guard going east. When he
gets to the S-curve that is just east of the trio of trees then proceed
north, drop down, and walk all the way to the hill. Then go east along the
edge of the hill and follow it north.

As you do so you will get a notification from Diana about the first Generator
you need to shut down so you can enter the Castle. This will show up at the
southeast side of the Castle.

Continue north and drop down from the ridge then climb the next one. The
solitary Guard Tower should be to your right. When the Tower is directly east
of you then turn right and drop down the ridge. The Tower should shield you
from the Guards on the foot path and dropping down should keep you out of
sight of the Guards to the north.

Continue slightly northeast and head to the southwest corner of the Castle.
As you get near it then stop and look east. Ahead of you is the foot path and
beyond it is another Guard Tower and ridge. You should also see the solitary
patrolling Guard you saw earlier. When he turns around and heads back south
then proceed east past the Guard Tower and to the ridge.

When you get to the ridge then follow along it and you will eventually get to
where you can climb up. This point is directly south of the Generator. When
you get up to the upper ridge then turn north towards the Generator. As you
proceed then bring out the Anaesthetic.

The reason for that is because of a Guard that is patrolling the Generator.
You're not going to be able to Sneak up on him so just walk up to him.
Remember, he is going run up to you to check your ID first before shooting at
you so when he stops to check identification then quickly get around his
backside and Sedate him.

After that then grab his SMG-SD6 and go inside the fence to shut down the
Generator. The switch is on the southwest side of the unit. Then Diana will
tell you about another Generator. This one will appear inside the Castle
grounds not far from the first Generator.

Now to head through the Castle entrance. However, there are Guards that keep
an eye on it. The entrance is part of a medium sized building at the front of
the castle. You can see what's inside by switching to the Castle Map.

Inside there are six stationary Guards. Four are looking south. These are
Katana Sword wielding Ninjas that lurk on top of the building rafters. As
long as you are not firing at anyone then they will leave well enough alone.
The two in the center are looking north. If you go through the entrance and
up the stairs then they will see you and confront you.

Finally, there is one more Guard. He will patrol this building in an
east-west route. He will start just outside one side of the building, go back
in, cut across the entrance then go out the other side and turn around and go
back the other way.

With that explained, let's proceed:

From the first Generator, go along the edge of the Castle and back to the
foot path. But stay on the lower part and stop next to the Guard tower.
Observe the entrance ahead. When you see the patrolling Guard move through
the entrance going west to east and out of view then proceed ahead and stop
at the wall to the *EAST* of the door.

What you want to do is wait for the patrolling Guard to go from east to west
through the entrance. When you see him go through the west door and the door
closes then go inside the entrance and proceed through the east door. Go up
the stairs, turn left and go through the door leading outside, then turn
right and head for the second Generator switch.

When you turn off the second Generator then Diana then will tell you of a
third Generator but it won't show on the Map. After turning off the Generator
then head back to the building but stop at the corner and out of view of the
door you came from. Wait for the patrolling Guard to come outside and go back
in again before continuing.

There is a ramp ahead of you to the north. After the patrolling Guard goes
back into the building then run to it, head up, and through the door at the
top.

When you go through the door then turn left and follow the hall. You should
see a couple of more rafter dwelling Ninjas but they will leave you alone
even as you run underneath them. At the end of this building is the last
Generator. Turn it off then turn around and head to the next door but stop
and stand to the left of it.

Open the door and use the Camera to find another patrolling Guard. Eventually
he will stop at a point directly north of you then head east. After he gets
some distance away then walk outside and head northwest sticking close to the
building. Walk through the now deactivated security door and to the base of
the ramp.

When you get to the base of the ramp then run up and turn right at the next
corner then through the next deactivated security door. Then run up the
stairs and to the Exit Point to successfully complete the mission.

Now that you're in the Castle itself you can begin the process of eliminating
Hayamoto Sr. and acquire the missile guidance system. As you can guess there
are plenty of Guards all throughout this large multi-level Castle. Although
the Castle itself is very old and creaky it is equipped with all of the
latest electronic alarm devices.

| The Map \
0=======================================================>

There are ten levels to the Map:

  >>Museum
  >>Basement
  >>6th Floor
  >>5th Floor
  >>4th Floor
  >>3rd Floor
  >>2nd Floor
  >>1st Floor
  >>Courtyard
  >>Wings

Hayamoto himself resides on the 6th Floor along with four Ninjas waiting in
the rafters. The 5th Floor has several additional Guards and sword wielding
Ninjas.

This floor has two Laser Doors that can only be opened by a Special Card that
is carried by three people, one by Hayamoto, one by an unknown Concubine, and
the last one by Lei Ling.

Lei Ling is the woman you rescued in "Codename 47" (and will again in
"Contracts") and she has managed to hook up with Hayamoto. You can rescue her
again if you want but there is no reward for doing so. She will, however,
give you a Special Card to grant access to the upper floors and you will get
a bonus save. Lei Ling and the unknown Concubine reside on the 4th Floor.

If you try to go through the Laser Doors without deactivating them then you
will set off alarms and piss off the Guards. The Laser Doors will only be
deactivated a short time before coming back on again.

The 3rd Floor has several Guards and a Point of Interest which is the Alarm
Console. You'll need to go here later. The 2nd Floor has only a rafter Ninja
The 1st Floor has three Guards, two by a Laser Door and one on a short
patrol. This floor also has squeaky floorboards that you need to avoid.

The Courtyard and Wings are the same Map but show different areas. The
Courtyard shows what's in the center of the Map which is the Helipad (Exit
Point). The Wings shows what's around the Courtyard which are the internal
rooms.

There are two Point of Interests on this Map. The one to the north is the
Keycard that will open the Laser Doors on the lower floors. The one to the
south is the Weapons Room where you will find the Bomb and the Bomb Remote.

The Basement is accessed through the 1st Floor and has two sets of stairs
which lead to the Museum. The Museum has only one Point of Interest - the
Guidance System. The Museum also contains two accessible weapons - the Katana
Sword and the .22 SD.

| General Notes \
0=======================================================>

In previous versions of this guide I pointed out that on your initial
run-through if you Sedated the two Guards in the previous mission then you
will only have one dose of Anaesthetic for this mission. The Perfect Assassin
strategy required two doses and I recommended Killing the Guard on the
initial run-through and go back later to clean up your score.

But I later discovered that you can do this mission cleanly with only one
dose. The key is to leave the Sedated Guard in a specific place while he is
sleeping. I pointed out earlier that this is a mission where you can be
attacked by Psychic Guards. However, they become psychic if the Sedated Guard
wakes up while the Alarm is going off. If he wakes before the Alarm is
triggered then you are okay.

If you stay hidden on the 1st Floor when you kill Hayamoto with the Bomb then
the nearby Guards may become psychic so it is best to stay by the Exit Point
instead while you wait for him to enter your trap.

    *************************
      Picking up the Katana Sword in the Museum should give you the {Samurai 
      Gaijin} Accomplishment. If you've acquired all of the other handguns 
      prior to this mission then you should earn the {All Handguns Collected} 
      Accomplishment when you pick up the .22 SD and complete the chapter.

When you start the mission then you will be on the Wings floor by the east
Exit Point (the Helipad is a secondary Exit). Enter Sneak Mode and angle
northwest towards what appears to be a wooden wall. However, this is actually
a secret door. Sneak through it and go up the stairs.

As you head up the stairs then bring out your Anaesthetic. When you get to
the next door then stop and either open your Map or look through the Keyhole.
You are now on the 1st Floor. Look for the north-south patrolling Guard at
the east side of this floor.

When he turns north then quietly go through the door. This is the room with
the squeaky floorboards. The floorboards are grayish in color and you cannot
walk on them. You need to walk on the solid beams that connect the pillars in
this room. They are brown in color.

After going through the door then turn left and head to the beam that will
let you get to the closest pillar. When you get to this pillar then head to
the southwest corner of it and angle the Camera so you can see the Guard.

When he turns back north again then go around the west side of the pillar and
head to the next one. You can't go after the Guard at this point because, as
he heads north, he will very slightly angle to the east which will make him
walk on the squeaky floorboards.

As you head to the next pillar make sure you don't get too close to him or
you will alert him. When you get to the pillar then go to the southwest
corner and wait for the Guard to turn south. When he does then gradually move
along the west side of the pillar and look east. Just before he goes behind
the pillar then move around the north side of it and get behind him.

If you wait for when he gets behind the pillar then you may not be able to
catch up to him before he reaches the south end of his patrol route and will
turn around before you can ambush him.

If you get behind him properly then you should get close enough to him just
before the end of his route to Sedate him. After you Sedate him then Change
Clothes.

Now, grab his *ARM* and drag his body back to the south wall then head west
to the stack of crates in the southwest corner. When you get to the crates
then place him as far into the gap, headfirst, between them and the west wall
as you can then drop him.

There is a reason for dropping him here and I will explain why later. From
this point you will need to run most of the way through this so you can be on
the upper floors by the time he wakes up. You don't want to be in the Museum
when he wakes up as this will more than likely cause the Guards to come after
you.

Just north of your position is the stairway down. Drop down and you should be
near the bottom of the stairs. When you get to the bottom of the stairs then
turn right to face west and you should see another wooden wall to your right.
This is another secret door. Go through this door, along the hallway, and
through the next door.

Just beyond this door is a small shelf on the wall to your right. On it is a
Keycard. This is the Keycard that will open the Laser Doors on the lower
floors of this facility. Grab the Keycard then go south to the next door and
walk through it. You will go outside and encounter a Guard standing near the
door. Ahead of you is the Helipad.

Turn left and go right around the corner of the Helipad. Head south until you
get under the covered walkway. To your left is a door. Go through this door
and immediately turn right. Go forward and turn the next corner.

Continue forward all the way to the end of the hallway where you will see a
door. However, at the end of this hallway should be another door which should
be to your right. Walk through this door and you should see two Guards just
sitting around. At the east side of this room is a Laser Door that leads into
the Weapons Room.

Deactivate the Laser Door and enter the room. Grab the Bomb Remote which is
on the nearby crate and go to the next crate to grab the Bomb itself. Then
walk back out through the Laser Door and into the hallway. Then go back to
the door leading outside.

When you get back outside then turn right and head to the closest corner of
the Helipad. Just beyond that are two Guards ahead of you. Go between them
and through the door, closing it as you walk through it.

You should be at the bottom of the stairs that go back up to the 1st Floor
and the secret door that led to the Keycard. Go up the stairs and to the
Laser Door ahead of you. The floorboards between the stairs and the Laser
Door don't squeak so it is okay to walk straight up to it.

Deactivate the Laser Door and walk through it and between the two Guards.
Angle northeast and you should see the stairs leading up to the 2nd Floor and
the stairs leading down to the Basement. Just as you get under the 2nd Floor
stairs then drop down into the next stairwell. Then head down the stairs and
through the next door.

Angle southeast and go to the next door at the other side of this floor. As
you are doing so then bring out the Bomb. Go down the stairs and stop when
you get to the bottom.

There is a Laser Door that goes into the Museum. Deactivate it and go through
the Door. Go to the Missile Guidance System, drop the Bomb, and pick up the
System. Then go to the southeast corner to find the .22 SD. Pick it up then
go to the west center side to find the Katana Sword. Pick it up then leave
the Museum the same way you came in.

  >>Xbox 360 and PS3 Versions
    *************************
      The Guard by the door at the north side of the Museum may get curious 
      and come inside while you are doing your thing. When you get inside 
      then run to the corner and grab the .22 SD first then go to the 
      Guidance System, drop the Bomb, and grab the System then grab the 
      Katana Sword and run back out before the Guard can do anything.

After exiting the Museum then head back up the the 1st Floor. Then walk up
the stairs to the 2nd Floor. When you get to the top of the stairs then turn
right 180 degrees so you are heading west and turn left at the corner.
Continue forward to the other end of the floor and head up the stairs to the
3rd Floor. Then continue to the 4th Floor and stop at the southwest corner.

The reason for stopping here is to allow the Sedated Guard to wake up. Being
up here will prevent the Guards from going hostile and initiate a Psychic
Guard attack. If I was in the Museum when he woke up then the Guards may go
after me.

Now I will explain the reason why I placed him in the corner by the crates.
When he wakes up then he will be frozen in place because, in the process of
Sedating him, I also disarmed him.

If you don't put him in this corner then, when you trigger the Alarm, he can
randomly appear anyplace along the escape route even though he was frozen
before. If you encounter him then it will count as a Close Encounter even if
he doesn't attack. More than likely he will be with the other Guards which
will often result in them attacking you.

But, by placing him in this corner, then you will also exploit a hole in the
game logic. When the Alarm is triggered then, because he is in this corner,
he will disappear from the Map. However, when you go back down to the 2nd
Floor, then he will reappear but in the center of the 1st Floor. He will then
walk to where he was originally patrolling earlier and freeze while looking
north and away from the door you entered from.

After he wakes up then head back down to the 3rd Floor. When you get down to
the 3rd Floor then you should see a door behind you and to the right. Go
through it and turn left to head to the next door. It should be noted that
there is a wandering Guard that patrols this floor.

  >>Xbox 360 Version
    ****************
      He may be stationary at a random place on this floor instead of 
      patrolling.

Go through the next door and angle right to go through the next one. When you
go through the next door then angle slightly left so you can enter the next
room behind the wall. Here you will find the Alarm Console. On it is a button
with a big red light.

Push it to start the Alarm which will get Hayamoto to flee the castle.
However, he will head down to the Museum to retrieve the Missile Guidance
System first - and walk right into your trap. After that then run all the way
back down to the 1st Floor (but walk past the 3rd Floor patrolling Guard).
Don't worry about any Guards you pass along the way - they will be too busy
helping in Hayamoto's escape.

When you get down to the 1st Floor then head back through the Laser Door. Be
careful though - some of the Guards coming up from outside may come through
the door and quickly reactivate the door before you can safely get through it
and cause Alerts.

After going through the Laser Door then *WALK* forward to the wall then turn
to walk back through the door you entered from (if you look to the left you
should see the naked Guard frozen in place). If you were to run then you may
attract his attention and he will attack you. When you go through the door
then head to the Exit Point but stop about a foot from it.

Then bring out the Bomb Remote and switch to your Map. Go to the Museum Map
and wait. Eventually Hayamoto will show up and head to where the Missile
Guidance System was. Just before he gets to the Point of Interest marker then
back out of your Map and detonate the Bomb to kill Hayamoto. Then walk
through the Exit Point to successfully complete the mission.

Your next major task is to eliminate one Charlie Sidjan, a very talented
hacker. He has managed to steal a very important piece of code from the
United States and the client wants it plus destroy all records of it.

His business, Carniwarez Inc. Computer Systems, is located in the Petronas
Towers at Kuala Lumpur. At 1,483 ft. tall they are considered one of the
tallest buildings in the world. At the time the game was made they were the
tallest but has since been overtaken by a couple of other buildings including
the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. It stands at a staggering
2,717 ft.

There are three missions here and you won't be able to go back to your Tool
Shed until you complete the last one.

weapons in to retrieve them in the Basement.

The second one is at the Fire Department at the northwest corner. It contains
a Fireman Outfit and a Fire Axe.

The third one, at the southwest corner, is where you can obtain a Pizza. This
is used if you ambush the pizza delivery person in one of the restrooms and
obtain his Outfit.

There is another PoI in the first Basement level. This is the surveillance
system you need to destroy.

| General Notes \
0=======================================================>

There are a couple of ways to do this mission but the best, and most popular
way, is to set off the Fire Alarm and run down into the Basement disguised as
a Fireman.

The major thing I have noted is that the Guards in the Basement, when they
run up to the Ground Floor when the Fire Alarm goes off, will stop at a
certain point then slowly head back to their posts regardless of whether or
not the Fire Alarm is still active.

This means that the placement of the Smoke Bomb will have no effect on how
long these Guards remain on the Ground Floor. In addition, I've tried to make
improvements to the overall strategy.

  >>Xbox 360 and PS3 Versions
    *************************
      This mission is where you can acquire two Accomplishments:

        --47 Kills in a Mission
        --Redrum

      There are 50 people in this mission including the Target. However, the 
      Target does not count towards this Accomplishment so there are actually 
      a total of 49 people that you can kill to get it. In order to get 47 
      Kills you need to spare two people. The easiest way to do that is to 
      spare the Pizza Delivery personnel.

      The first one is behind the counter at the southwest corner of the 
      floor so it will be easy to leave him be. The second one will be 
      running around with the others and is easy to spot.

      It is very important to point out then you need to kill everybody 
      quickly. Over time the Civilians will flee through the front doors, 
      something you can't do, and will disappear from the map thus reducing 
      their numbers and keeping you from acquiring the Accomplishment.

      Use your 9mm Pistol SD to kill everybody since you can get lots of ammo 
      for it from Guards and Locker 137. If you wait until later I recommend 
      bringing the M60 too to speed up the killing. You need to be careful 
      not to shoot the Pizza Guy while you are Rampaging.

      After you kill everybody on the 1st Floor then use the Smoke Bomb to 
      lure the remaining Guards up from the Basement. After dropping the Bomb 
      then go over to the west side as this is where most of the Guards will 
      enter from.

      After you kill the Guards then you need to start counting the bodies. 
      This can be a pain since many bodies can cluster and will be hard to 
      sort through on the map. The best thing to do is to drag the bodies 
      into discernable clusters of five. This will make the bodies easier to 
      count on the map.

      If you did everything right then you should have nine clusters plus two 
      additional bodies. If you have either 45 or 46 bodies then kill the 
      Pizza Guys to compensate.

      Then go and Kill the Target with the Fire Axe to get the {Redrum} 
      Accomplishment and complete the mission to get the other one.

0===========================================================================0
|=========================| Standard/PA Strategy |==========================|
0===========================================================================0

When the mission begins then you will start out in an open phone booth at the
southeast corner of the Ground Floor. Your pickup is in a small room at the
west side of the Security Dep. just to the east of your position.

Run up to the door of the Security Dep. but don't go in. Look at your Map and
you will see a Guard going from the pickup room into a larger room just east
of that. If you are seen by a Guard as you try to enter this room then you
will be chased out.

Enter into the Security Dep. as the Guard is going into the larger room. Go
inside the pickup room and open Locker 137 to find a 9mm Pistol SD, some
Pistol Ammo, and the Smoke Bomb. Pick up the Smoke Bomb, equip it, then arm
it and drop it. Run out of the Security Dep. and make your way to the
northwest corner of the Ground Floor to find the Fire Department.

Stay outside of the door and look at your Map. The Fire Alarm will be
triggered by the Smoke Bomb and you will see the Firemen quickly get their
stuff and leave.

After the last guy has left then run inside and change into the Fireman
Outfit and grab the Fire Axe nearby to complete the disguise. Then run out
and through the Security Scanners east of the Fire Department then to the
Fire Stairs.

The scanner will make noise as you go through it but the Guards think that
you are heading to an emergency so they will leave you alone. Quickly run
down the Fire Stairs and through the door at the bottom then continue
straight, follow the corner, and run through the next set of doors. Here you
will be in a generator room.

All the Guards that are on this level will be upstairs with the Firemen thus
leaving you free to do what you need to do. Immediately to your left is the
door that enters into the room with basement entrance and direct Elevator.

Quickly run into the room and look for the surveillance system for the direct
Elevator. This system is the one by the basement door. Remember, melee
weapons, such as the Fire Axe, cannot destroy anything that is not flesh and
blood. You have to use a firearm on the surveillance system.

Quickly whip out your 9mm Pistol SD, which will cause you to drop the Fire
Axe, and shoot the monitor to disable it then pick up the Fire Axe. Then run
through the basement door and run all the way down until you get to the last
door which you need to pick.

By the time you reach this door you should be notified that the fire
situation is over. As pointed out earlier, the Guards will be heading back to
their stations.

When you pick the lock then you will be able to enter the next room. Here you
will see Charlie on the far end working on his computer. However, you will
see pizza boxes and potato chips on the floor. Stepping on them will make
noise and can alert him.

But you don't need to worry much about that at all. Hold down the Fire Button
to bring the Fire Axe above your head then run forward to Charlie. When you
get to the first pile of chips then run right around them and continue
forward. You will crunch the last pile right before him but all that will do
is make him look back. When you run to him then release the Fire Button to
bring the Fire Axe upon his head to kill him.

After you kill him then you will contact the Agency. In an interesting twist
it appears that Charlie has a twin brother and it is possible that you may
need to eliminate him as well.

After that then Holster the Fire Axe and run all the way back to the door
into the security room then turn right and quickly enter the Elevator to
successfully complete the mission. If you've done everything right then the
Guards haven't arrived back here yet.

And the Guards will get suspicious when they see a Fireman here. It should be
pointed out that if they are walking into the room, regardless of how fast
you are in entering the Elevator and regardless of your Threat Meter, you
*WILL* get a Close Encounter on your rating.

Before moving on to take care of the twin brother you need to plant a dongle
on the master server which is locked in an air conditioned room. The dongle
will allow the client to retrieve the encoded program.

The only way into this room is with the System Administrator's keycard. He is
working late along with several additional workers. There are also multiple
Guards that protect this floor that need to be avoided. After the device is
planted then you need to find a way out. That way out would be through the
SkyBridge that connects the two large buildings.

| The Map \
0=======================================================>

There is only one level to this Map and it is the Office Floor. This Map will
also have several Points of Interests. To the north you will see the Server
Room and the AirCon Room. The PoI in the Server Room is the actual server you
must hack.

The PoI in the Kitchen contains a Coffee Pot that is watched by a WebCam that
is connected to the System Administrator's office so he can keep an eye on
it. The PoI south of the Kitchen contains a Keycard that opens the AirCon
Room.

The two PoI's to the west are weapon boxes. The south one contains a 9mm
Pistol SD and some Pistol Ammo. The north one, which needs to be picked open,
contains Pistol Ammo and NightVision Goggles. The last PoI is the Keycard
that is in the System Administrator's office.

You will see two Guard Rooms with multiple Guards. There are also three
Guards that slowly patrol the floor.

In addition, you will see four programmers (Civilians) that are working in
the three large cubicle rooms. You need to give them a wide berth to avoid
spooking them and making them alert Guards.

Finally, there are two Restrooms at the south side of this floor.

| General Notes \
0=======================================================>

There are a couple of ways to go about this mission. One way, is to knock out
the Air Conditioning to the Server and the other method, and what Jason has
written, is to ambush and Sedate a Guard to get a disguise then Sneak past
the SysAdmin to get the Keycard. However, I tweaked that method with my own
ideas.

There is also a section near the end that details how to deal with the
SkyBridge Guards and is common to both methods.

This is also a mission where you can be attacked by Psychic Guards if you
Sedate either the SysAdmin or patrolling Guard. You can avoid them by waiting
under the stairs after blowing out the window. When the warning comes up then
several Guards will run around looking for you.

Unfortunately, these Guards will continuously run around thus preventing you
from safely re-entering the main office area. Therefore, if you wish to
Sedate rather than Kill, then you need to keep your victim asleep until you
have accomplished your main objectives other than crossing the SkyBridge.

0===========================================================================0
|===========================| Standard Strategy |===========================|
0===========================================================================0

When you start the mission then you will be in the Elevator just south of the
Kitchen. Drop the Fire Axe you brought with you from the previous mission if
you still have it.

From here, walk forward a little bit and stop at the entrance of the small
alcove you've been in. On both sides of the entrance are ashtrays. Stand by
the one on your right and rotate the Camera so you are looking southwest at
the hallway then bring out your Anaesthetic.

West of your position is a patrolling Guard that has just stopped inside the
west Guard Room. He will turn around and slowly walk down the hallway going
south and out of the central area. Wait for him to appear and go completely
out of view before doing anything.

Then walk to the next corner and enter Sneak Mode. From here, follow the
Guard. The Guard will eventually stop between the Restroom doors. By the time
he gets to this point then you should be right up against him. Sedate him
then drag his body into one of the Restrooms and Change Clothes.

After this then walk to the room south of the east Guard Room. This has the
Keycard to the AirCon Room. Pick the Lock to enter and acquire the Keycard.
Then go back the same way you came and go north through the central hallway,
past the Kitchen, and to the north door close to both the Server and AirCon
Rooms.

Check the Map or open the door to make sure that there are no Guards nearby
before proceeding. Then go into the AirCon Room. Inside is a Server Cooler.
Use your 9mm Pistol SD and fire one shot into it to destroy it. This will
cause the Server to overheat. And this will make the SysAdmin run to the
Server Room to try to solve the problem.

When he gets inside the Server Room then he will spend some time on the
machine before giving up and return to his Office. While he is doing his
thing it is best to stay where you are at. But, in the process of trying to
fix the Server, he will unlock the Server Room door so you can just walk on
in when he leaves.

Enter the Server Room and Plant Hacking Device. You will then get a message
stating that the device is working and that you need to get to the SkyBridge.
From here, head back to the sleeping Guard, wait for him to wake up, then
Sedate him again to buy additional time for your escape. Then go to the
window overlooking the SkyBridge while dodging the other Guards and
Civilians.

0===========================================================================0
|=======================| Perfect Assassin Strategy |=======================|
0===========================================================================0

For this method you need to to acquire the SysAdmin's Keycard without firing
the additional shot. After Sedating the patrolling Guard and Changing Clothes
then head to the SysAdmin's Office while dodging the other Guards and
Civilians. When you get to his door then check your Map.

Make sure that no Civilian is in the Office or heading to it before you make
your move. When the coast is clear then go into Sneak Mode and enter the
Office. If he has his back to you then slowly approach his desk and grab the
Keycard. If he turns around as you open the door then sidestep left as you
enter then wait for him to turn around before proceeding.

After acquiring the Keycard then slowly exit the office and head to the
Server Room. After planting the Hacking Device then head back to the sleeping
Guard and Sedate him again when he wakes up. Then head to the window
overlooking the SkyBridge.

|==========================| Mission Completion |===========================|
0===========================================================================0

Regardless of what mission method you used this is the part that is common to
both and involves your eventual escape.

When the coast is clear then walk close to the center window and rotate until
you are either looking straight south or west. The reason for that is if you
shoot over the SkyBridge then you may risk shooting close to the Guards there
and they may freak out.

When you are in position then bring out the 9mm Pistol SD and shoot once to
destroy the window then jump down and immediately duck under the stairs then
enter Sneak Mode. The reason for this is because you may cause everybody to
panic and they will run to the Guards. You will get a warning about a
suspicious Guard but no more.

However, everyone will run around trying to see what has happened with the
window and the Guards will be temporarily hyper alert. But things will
eventually settle down and they will go back to business as usual. By hiding
under the stairs then nobody can see you while this is going on so you are
quite safe but you shouldn't move yet.

  **NOTE: On the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions nothing will happen when you shoot 
          out the window so there is no panic.

If you Sedated the Guard, and depending on how long things take, this may
allow him to wake up before you can get to the other end of the SkyBridge.
You will get an additional warning about a suspicious Guard then he, and
several others, will randomly run about the floor looking for you.

In this case it is advisable to sit under the stairs until the Sedated Guard
has awakened and for the Guards to be away from the nearby hallway before
proceeding. When the coast is clear then move southwest across the SkyBridge.
Ahead of you is a maze of wired lights and small air conditioning units. At
the other end of the SkyBridge is the Exit Point.

There are two Guards that patrol the SkyBridge. I will call them the Left
Guard and the Right Guard.

If you tried to cross the SkyBridge while the Guards were hyper alert then
these Guards will automatically see through your disguise when the warning
comes up, regardless of whether or not they can actually see you by an air
conditioning unit, and will run up to attack you. Very annoying.

But, by waiting for everything to settle down after breaking the window and
for the sleeping Guard to wake up, then they should be back to normal and
should cause no problems.

The Left Guard has a patrol route that goes from near the Exit Point to the
center of the SkyBridge (when looking at the Map that would be where the "B"
is). The Right Guard has a patrol route that goes from the center of the
SkyBridge (also by the "B") to just above the "I".

Stand by the air conditioning unit that is just above the "G". You do not
want to get too close to the north end of the Right Guard's patrol route or
he may come closer to investigate.

If he does and you manage to avoid blowing your cover then he may stop in the
center of the path not far from the south end of his route and will stay
there. The problem is that if you try to get by him then more than likely you
will blow your cover and both Guards will then shoot at you.

What you need to to is wait for both Guards to stand at the center of the
SkyBridge or the Right Guard to stand at the center of the bridge and the
Left Guard to be either at the west end of his route or heading back to the
Exit Point before making your move.

When you successfully get past both Guards and to the Exit Point then you
will successfully complete this mission.

The bonus Target you need to kill is the twin brother of Charlie Sidjan. He
behaves very differently from his other brother. He is quite the playboy and
has his own penthouse suite in the upper levels of the building. He also is
surrounded by several female Bodyguards.

He also has a taste for expensive art as he has a rare 16th century statue on
display. This means additional Guards are on patrol inside the place. Your
task is to eliminate him and make it look like a robbery gone bad by taking
the statue and additional money which can be found inside a Safe.

| The Map \
0=======================================================>

There is only one level to this Map and that is the Apartment itself. And it
is a pretty compact level to boot.

There are two male Guards that wander around the center of the apartment and
hallways. There are three female Bodyguards that hang out with Charlie by the
Hot Tub at the northwest corner of the area. There is another female
Bodyguard playing the piano at the southwest corner of this floor.

There are three Point of Interests (and really should be a fourth). The first
one, at the northeast corner of the floor, is the Safe that has money you
need to steal. This room is occupied by a Secretary who will check on the
money every so often. I will call this area the Safe Room.

The second Point of Interest, southwest of the first one, is the Statue you
need to steal. The last one, south of that is where you can find Nightvision
Goggles.

The last place of interest is the Fuse Room which is across the hallway west
of the Safe Room. Both the Statue and Safe are protected by alarms so you
need to cut the power to get at them safely.

| General Notes \
0=======================================================>

Although there are some NightVision Goggles laying around you can still do
everything you need without them. This is also another mission with Psychic
Guards but they are much easier to deal with here.

0===========================================================================0
|=========================| Standard/PA Strategy |==========================|
0===========================================================================0

When you start the mission then you will be on the ledge just outside the
window looking into the Hot Tub Room where you can see Charlie and the three
female Bodyguards. It should be pointed out that the window is bulletproof so
you can't shoot Charlie from here.

Carefully run south along the edge, follow the corner, and stop at the next
one. You should see the piano playing Bodyguard through the curved window to
your right. Look at your Map or through the window. Inside the main apartment
area are two patrolling Guards. At this point they can't be seen through the
window. But they will enter through a pair of doors near the Exit Point.

Guard #1 has a patrol that starts by the door to the Hot Tub Room, goes south
through the left door by the Exit Point, stops by the piano playing Guard,
then turns around and goes back north.

Guard #2 has a patrol that starts in the Safe Room, goes through the nearby
hallway, goes through the right door by the Exit Point, goes southwest to the
left door to the south patio, goes outside and back in through the opposite
door, heads northwest to the left door near the Exit Point, goes through it
and turns right to head back to the Safe Room.

Guard #1 is a bit twitchy and Guard #2 is, shall we say, dense. I'll explain
why later.

When they enter into the main apartment area then they will head south
through it then head back north. When they are near the doors then then run
along the ledge to the patio just outside the Safe Room. Then climb the
railing and walk to the door then stop.

Either check your Map or open the door to find the Secretary. Her behavior
will depend on where you are on the Map. Every so often she will get up from
her desk.

If you are outside then she will go to the Restroom at the west side of the
floor which will give you an opening to get inside. If you are inside then
she will no longer go to the Restroom but instead check on the Safe when she
gets up from her desk. This means that she will not go into the hallway thus
making things easier for you.

However, while you are outside, she may check the Safe instead of going to
the Restroom which means a longer wait time to get inside. If she goes to the
Restroom then wait for her to leave Safe Room then walk inside. When you get
to the door then run into the Fuse Room and Destroy the Fuses. This will
knock out the lights and alarm system. In addition, a Technician will be
called up to fix the problem.

If the Technician doesn't fix the problem within a reasonable amount of time
then Security will be called up. This means that ambushing him isn't an
option but he's not an issue anyway.

After the lights are out then run into the Safe Room, open the Painting and
the Safe, take the Money, and close both the Safe and Painting. Then run
outside and through the other door to grab the Statue. Then run back out and
into the Safe Room. Head to the door, stand by it, and bring out your
Anaesthetic.

When the lights are out everybody is standing and looking around. The
Secretary will run into the main area in a panic.

But both Guard #1 and #2 will continue to patrol the apartment as though
nothing is happening. When Guard #2 tries to come into the Safe Room then use
the 45-Degree Door Trick to Sedate him as he goes through the door. Then
close the door and grab his body again but *DON'T* move.

At this point the Technician will arrive on the floor. He will head to the
Fuse Room and quickly fix the problem which will bring the lights back on.
Wait for him to leave and go around the corner before dragging the Sedated
Guard into the Fuse Room. Then Change Clothes and leave.

**NOTE: If the Secretary checks the Safe before going to the Restroom then
wait for Guard #2 to enter and leave the Safe Room before heading to the Fuse
Room. Before Destroying the Fuses, check your Map.

Wait for Guard #2 to get to the left door going outside before proceeding. On
Professional difficulty, wait about, maybe, 20 to 25 seconds.

After Changing Clothes then go into the Safe Room and back outside. Climb
over the rail, and head around the window for the Safe Room and stop behind
the wall at the northeast corner of the Map.

This will allow you to keep the Guards from becoming psychic when Guard #2
wakes up later. Before I go any further I need to explain that when the
Secretary checks on the Safe while you are waiting for the Guard to wake up
then she will see it empty and run into the main apartment area.

Eventually she will get to any of the two remaining Guards and will lead
him/her to the Safe Room through the outside entrance. When they get to the
Safe Room then the Guard will look around for a bit then return to his/her
post. The Secretary will also return to her desk. Later, she will check on
the Safe again and the whole thing repeats.

Because they never go into the hallway this will cause no problems for you
when you have to go through it yourself.

When Guard #2 wakes up, and the warning is issued, then look through the
window and wait for him to return to his patrol before heading back inside.
As I mentioned earlier, Guard #2 isn't very bright. If you're going in
opposite directions you can walk past him without any problems regardless of
the fact that you are wearing his clothes.

Go to and stand near the Exit Point and wait for Guard #1 to go through the
hallway and back into the main area before heading to the Hot Tub Room. When
you get into the Hot Tub Room then turn left and walk forward. You should see
a large heart shaped bed and a lamp.

Get next to the lamp and stand near the center of the bed. You should find
Charlie and the female Bodyguards. Every so often the Bodyguards will leave
the Hot Tub Room and go to the Restroom. These Bodyguards are very sensitive
and you do not want to get too close to them.

If you get any closer than your current position then you risk having them
come up to you to investigate when they leave, which will more than likely
blow your cover, or they may just turn around and head back to the Hot Tub
instead.

Wait for them to completely leave the room before making your move. After
they are gone then get right up behind Charlie, whip out your Knife, and
Slash him. Then Holster your Knife and grab his body by the arm then drag his
body to the bed and to where you were standing earlier. This will hide the
body from the Guards when they return.

If you grabbed him by the leg then you risk having it stick up when you drop
him and this will attract the attention of the Bodyguards when they come
back. This is why you grab him by the arm - so this doesn't happen.

When they return then they will sit at the Hot Tub once more. After Charlie
is dead then they will never leave the Hot Tub again. Go to the door and,
either by using the Map or by opening the door, wait for Guard #1 to come to
the north end of his patrol and head back before leaving. Don't get too close
to him or he will stop and look around.

When you get to the Exit Point then you will find that even though you can
Call the Elevator it won't come up. The only way to use it is to Destroy the
Fuses again and have the Technician bring it up. Head back to the Fuse Room.

Check your Map, or look through the Keyhole, and wait for Guard #2 to enter
and leave the Safe Room before Destroying the Fuses to bring up the
Technician. Then go back to the Exit Point and stand at the left side of the
Elevator door. When the technician arrives and leaves the Elevator then enter
it yourself to successfully complete the mission.

After this mission then you will find yourself back at your familiar Tool
Shed at Gontranno. If you've done everything correctly up to this point then
you should have the following weapons inside the Tool Shed:

Your next major task is to retrieve some valuable cargo for the client. It
was stolen by renegades who have hidden it in the desert. In addition to
obtaining the cargo you are also to kill the people responsible for its
theft. There are three missions here and you won't be able to go back to your
Tool Shed until you complete the last one.

You need to kill Lieutenant Ahmed Zahir and get a map from him. After that
then you need to kill Colonel Mohammad Amin and obtain a key from him. The
key is an important part of the cargo you need to find and the map will help
you in locating it. You can't risk having the alarm raised or the Colonel
will try to escape and you will more than likely fail the mission.

The Lieutenant is weak and goes for a nap after noon prayers which makes it a
good time to get rid of him. The Colonel, on the other hand, will be shopping
in the nearby Bazaar which will have several Civilians inside.

The Bazaar itself is at the south side of the Village. It will have Guards
situated at the west end and a couple of more stationed near the east side.
There is a ladder that leads to the roof of the Bazaar near the west end of
the building. This is where you will go later.

On the Village Map you should see the Guard Quarters and the Lieutenant's
Quarters. Don't bother with the Guards Quarters. Other than the SVD Sniper
there is nothing else of importance in there.

| General Notes \
0=======================================================>

This is a simple straightforward mission. The strategy is based on Jason's
work but I have tried to add my own observations and tweaks to it.

0===========================================================================0
|=========================| Standard/PA Strategy |==========================|
0===========================================================================0

When you start the mission then you will be at the southwest corner of the
Village. Turn north and run up the road.

Your goal is the alley behind the Lieutenant's Quarters. Run behind the
Quarters, past the door, then stop at the southeast corner. Look at your Map
and you should see the two Guards stationed at the front of the Quarters and
the Lieutenant. If you ran to the southeast corner then the noise you made
from running should make all three turn and look south. This will make things
easier.

On the PC and Xbox 360 versions you need to make sure that the Lieutenant is
facing *SOUTHEAST* not just south. If he is facing straight south then he
will see you when you try to Sneak up and be forced to restart. On the other
versions he can still face south and not see you.

But you need to hurry since there are two wandering Guards heading in your
direction from the north. Enter Sneak Mode and creep to the door then pick
the lock. Creep up the stairs and you should see the Lieutenant standing
there like an idiot.

Get up behind him and Wire him. If you use the Knife then you may make noise
that can cause the approaching Guards to be twitchy. After killing him then
grab the Coordinates and Change Clothes. You need to change into the
Lieutenant Outfit for the next part of the mission.

As you are doing this then the two wandering Guards I mentioned should have
just entered the Quarters. Wait for them to stop in the middle of the room
and turn their backs to you. Then Sneak down the stairs and head back
outside. Sneak to the southwest corner of the Quarters and get out of Sneak
Mode.

Head west and turn left when you get to the end of the building then turn
left again to enter an alley. Head east along the alley and to the Ladder at
the west end of the Bazaar building. Keep an eye out for a pair of wandering
Guards. If you've done everything correctly then they should be way ahead of
you near the east end of the Bazaar building. If they are nearby then wait
for them to move away before proceeding.

Climb to the top of the Ladder then the stairs to get to the roof. Stay close
to the windows and head to the east end of the Bazaar. If you still wore the
Civilian Outfit then the Guards will see you and fire at you. By using the
Lieutenant Outfit then they won't do anything since, from afar, they think
you are him.

As you near the east end of the Bazaar roof keep an eye out for the two
wandering Guards. Make sure they are away from the east entrance and heading
back west before proceeding.

You need to get onto the green awning that is above the east entrance.
However, there is a decorative stone block in the way. Get around it and onto
the edge of the roof then onto the awning. Go to the south end of the awning
and wait for the Guards to move away. Then drop down between the rock wall
and the awning - the wall has a slope to allow you to slide down without
harm. From here, head inside the Bazaar building.

Go inside the first shop on your left (there should be two stacks of pots
just before it). Then go behind the stack of crates in the back, look at the
crates, enter Sneak Mode, and wait.

After awhile you should see the Colonel and his Bodyguard appear in the gap
between the crate you are looking at and the stack of pots to the right. He
will head near the stack of crates, turn his back to you, then smoke. Creep
up behind him and Wire him then take the Key.

Then drag his body behind the crates and walk out. Since you are dressed as
the Lieutenant the Bodyguard won't care and will wave you off. After this
then walk to the Exit Point to successfully complete the mission.

You need to kill the local Khan, Abdul Bismallah Malik, who is trying to sell
the cargo to the UN. He is heading back to his Palace in his Limo which is
being escorted by some UN Soldiers. You have to kill him before he gets there
and without harming the UN personnel. There is an Agency contact who will
provide you with some weapons.

You also need to be careful since the locals don't take too kindly to
foreigners carrying around weapons in their town.

| The Map \
0=======================================================>

There is only one level to this Map and that is the Village itself which is a
medium sized level. There is a large Mosque to the south and near the Exit
Point. The Agency Pickup is at the northwest side of the area. There is also
a long road just outside the Village. This is the road that the Khan will
arrive from.

| General Notes \
0=======================================================>

This mission is a pain in the ass. There are a lot of Guards about and you
have to use a noisy weapon in order to get the job done. But the Guards
aren't the real problem. It is the two randomly wandering Civilians that can
cause the most headaches, especially if you're trying to Sneak up on a Guard
out in the open.

Thankfully the Guards aren't too much of a problem but you still should not
get too close to them while holding the MI95.

One interesting thing about the MI95 Sniper Rifle. It is so unique to this
area that if you drop it it will *ATTRACT* people to it. This can be useful
for luring someone into a favorable area but bad if you do not want to be
seen with it since you can't just drop it and wait for the Guard or Civilian
to pass before picking it up again.

And you are also on a time limit although you can speed things up by being in
the right place. And, speaking of the right place, even after going through
numerous places to snipe the Khan, the best place is still the highest point
on the Map which is just southeast of the Agency Pickup.

According to Jason it is possible to kill the Khan without firing a shot. And
I found a couple of videos that show how this is done.

Personally, I've never liked this mission and consider it my most hated out
of all of the "Hitman" games, "Absolution" included. I would rather sneak
into the Palace and Wire the Khan while he is taking a piss or something.

This is the second mission where somebody can be Killed by something you had
nothing to do with. You have some control over when the Motorcade appears on
the map. If you are a little slow in making them appear then they may run
over a patrolling Guard walking the main road. There is also another way they
can die and I will explain that later.

0===========================================================================0
|===========================| Standard Strategy |===========================|
0===========================================================================0

When the mission begins then you will be behind some crates at the south side
of the Village and near a large Mosque. You will also be dressed as a
Civilian. As long as you are unarmed then you can pretty much do whatever you
want. But you need to get a Guard Outfit to make it to the sniping point
without attracting too much attention to yourself when carrying the MI95.

From the starting point, head to the mostly enclosed area that contains the
Agency Pickup. Go inside the enclosed area but *DO NOT* go the the Pickup.
Stay just outside of it and near a small cubbyhole.

You see, there are a lot of Guards patrolling around the Village. However,
you can actually control when some of them go to the large Mosque at the
south side of the Village. They will go approximately one minute after you
pick up the MI95. So, if you time things correctly, then you can make them go
and keep them at the Mosque long enough to complete the mission.

At the west side of the enclosed area you should see a couple of patrolling
Guards close together as they move south. Wait for them to be directly south
of the Agency Pickup before you acquire the weapon. After acquiring the
weapon then go to the cubbyhole next door to the Pickup.

The next step is to Kill one of the patrolling Guards for an Outfit. To this
end I am using the MI95 as a lure.

There are four crates that make up part of a cubbyhole. Drop the MI95 against
the wall across from the end of the crates so that it can be seen by a
patrolling Guard (but make sure that no Civilians are going to be going near
the opening or they may see it too).

Go back into the cubbyhole and Prep your Knife. When the Guard sees the
weapon then he will quickly walk to it. Then he will stop and spin in place.
This makes it impossible to Sedate him since the Anaesthetic is brought out
too slow. This is why you use the Knife.

Go up against him and, when he spins so he isn't looking at you, then quickly
bring out your Knife and Kill him then drag his body to the cubbyhole. Go
back and grab the MI95 before anybody else sees it then Change Clothes.

  **NOTE: If you're having problems trying to Kill him with the Knife then 
          stay behind the crates, go into first person mode, bring out your 
          9mm Pistol SD, and gently creep forward until you can barely see 
          him. Then Kill him with one shot to the head.

When you are properly disguised then you need to get into position to snipe
the Khan. You need to get to the stairs which should be directly east of your
current position so you can get access to the Ladder for the sniping point
which is the tallest building in the town. The wandering Civilians won't care
about you carrying the MI95 as long as you are properly disguised.

But, if they see you up there with the weapon, then they will freak out and
run to the Guards. After climbing up the Ladder to the sniping point then
drop the MI95, so you don't unnecessarily upset the Civilians, and enter
Sneak Mode. At this point you should get the notice that the Motorcade is
entering the region.

It should be pointed out that, regardless of how much time you have taken at
the beginning part of this mission, you can always get the Motorcade to
appear by getting up to the sniping point.

The game designers wanted you to use the engine busting capabilities of the
MI95 to shoot the engine of the front jeep and then snipe the Khan. But this
will cause the UN Soldiers to shoot at you and raise Alerts which can make
things more difficult.

  **NOTE: The UN Soldiers can also shoot through the open gates and hit and 
          possibly Kill Guards and Civilians. Their actions won't count 
          against your score but, with the bodies in plain view and the 
          general rule of what happens when bodies are found, then you will 
          get tons of Alerts - especially when multiple people die.

However, the designers also gave you the option to shoot the Khan from
behind. This is indicated by the short wall on the west side of this rooftop
and the wall extension that borders the ladder that keeps you hidden as you
climb down. Look west toward the short wall and wait for the notice that the
Motorcade has approached the gates before picking up the MI95. Then enter
Zoom Mode and zoom in one level.

Look for the top of the white wall, that has the archway the motorcade will
drive through, and find the angled bend. Near this bend is the left side of
the road. The road angles left to enter into the Palace. Find the point where
the road angles. Next to the side of the road is the brown tire tracks. In
the center of the road is a lighter tan area.

Put your crosshairs directly on the spot where the left side of the road
bends then move it right until you reach the border between the tire tracks
and the center area. Leave it here and wait. The Kahn will be driven right
into your sights then BAM!

  >>Original Xbox Version
    *********************
      On this version you need to move the crosshair more to the center.

After killing the Khan then *IMMEDIATELY* get out of Zoom Mode, crouch down
so you can't be seen behind the short wall, and drop the MI95. Wait about a
minute for things to settle down a bit before leaving the rooftop. When you
get back down to the lower rooftop then walk along the rooftop and drop back
down to ground level. Go back to the dead Guard and change back into your
Civilian clothes.

From here, just walk to the Exit Point to successfully complete the mission
unscathed.

|=======================| Perfect Assassin Strategy |=======================|
0===========================================================================0

One way to improve your score is to Sedate a Guard instead of Killing him.
But that is much easier said than done. As already noted, you can't Sedate a
Guard if you lure him because he will spin in place. The designers wanted you
to go out into the open to do this. In general, ambushing a Guard in the open
isn't a difficult thing to do.

But it is those damn Civilians that make it much more challenging, especially
because of their random patrol patterns and speed. If you get a Guard exactly
where you want him for Sedation then more than likely at least one of the
Civilians will be in your face to ruin whatever you were planning to do.

The best option I found was to Sedate a Guard to the east of the cubbyhole
area then drag him back to it if the Civilians were far enough away and
moving away from me. Of course, this takes many attempts because of their
randomness. At this time I've not yet been able to find a reliable way to
safely Sedate a Guard without Civilian interference.

Another way to improve your score is to try to kill the Khan without using
the MI95 at all. Jason had written up a way to do it in his document years
ago. But others have made videos that demonstrate this method and variants of
it:

  >>Bursting Glass (Fire Axe plus acquiring MI95)

  >>Coffeeoscar96 (Katana)
    **********************
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OtoEb4_LjH4

What I find interesting in these videos is that they don't seem to account
for the random Civilians. I've yet to try this and I don't know if I ever
will. But I'm presenting them in this guide for those who want to do
something different.

an underground base. Then secure the Cargo that the Khan tried to hide and
bring it to the surface where a chopper will pick it up.

There are two levels to the Map:

There are two entry points into the Compound area. Both of them are inside
round buildings at the north and south sides of the Ruin Area. If you look at
the Compound Map then you will see three Points of Interests.

The one at the northeast part of the Map is the Cargo which is residing in
the Elevator. The second one at the end of a wavy looking corridor is a
Generator. The last one is where you can find the Nightvision Goggles.

The round room on the right side is where you can find Yussef Hussein. You
will notice that he does not appear on the Map. He will only appear when you
rescue the Prisoner who is being tortured at the northeast corner of the
Compound.

You will also see six small rooms at the south side of the Map. They can be
useful for dodging Guards.

| General Notes \
0=======================================================>

This is not a terribly difficult mission despite all the Guards, even the
random ones. I also have two methods which depends on whether or not you Kill
the Guards near the Helipad.

  >>Xbox 360 and PS3 Versions
    *************************
      If you acquired the W2000 Sniper from "Invitation to a Party", the 
      Custom Rifle from "At the Gates", and the MI95 from the previous 
      mission then this is the earliest that you can get the {All Sniper 
      Rifles Collected} Accomplishment.

      You will also get the {All Heavy Weapons Collected} Accomplishment when 
      you acquire the M60, in addition to the MI95, and end up back at the 
      Tool Shed after the mission.

0===========================================================================0
|=======================| Perfect Assassin Strategy |=======================|
0===========================================================================0

This is for those who wish to Sedate the two Guards near the Helipad near
where you take the Cargo.

When the mission begins then you will start at the southeast part of the Ruin
Area and east of the south entry point. To the south of the south entry point
is a large U-shaped wall.

Run west and then angle southwest and go west along the south side of this
U-shaped wall, turn the corner going north, then stop when you reach the end.
Look to the northeast to find the round building which is the south entry
point.

If you see the Guard wandering around then remain still until he returns to
his post. If you don't then proceed to the west side of the building.

When you get to the north side of the round building then stop running and
start walking along the building. As you get close to the door, and the
Guard, then go into Sneak Mode and bring out your Anaesthetic. Just before
you get to the door, stop. As the Guard is standing there he will look left
and right. Sometimes he will look real far to the left. If you make your move
when he does that then he will see you and things go bad.

Wait for him to to look right before getting up behind him and Sedating him.
Pick the Lock of the door behind him then drag the Guard partway down the
stairs and Change Clothes. He'll wake eventually during the mission but
thankfully the Guards here aren't psychic so you're still good.

Go down the stairs and stop at the curve that leads north into the room where
the Nightvision Goggles are at. There is a Guard that patrols the corridor
with the six small rooms. You need to wait for him to stop at the west end of
his patrol then turn and head east.

When he does then head to the Ladder that goes into the Moat that rings
around the center of the facility. Enter Sneak Mode and proceed north through
the Moat. Your goal is the Ladder at the north center part of this area. When
you get there then go up, exit Sneak Mode, and walk east.

At the next corner is a Guard torturing a Prisoner. Rescuing him will put
Yussef on the Map but it is not necessary. Go right into the corner, stop,
and look south. There are also a couple of Guards that randomly patrol the
north-south corridor where Yussef's quarters are at. They stop in front of
his door for awhile then at least one will go north to check on the prisoner.

One of these two Guards may go south and stop at the southeast corner then go
back north to the door again. When both Guards are at the door then head
south and step into the entrance into the Guards Quarters to your right. The
idea is to wait here until both Guards are far enough away from the door so
you can enter Yussef's Quarters.

It is important to point out that this door does *NOT* auto close. You must
close this door manually after you open it. So go through the door, close it,
then enter Sneak Mode and pull out your Fiber Wire. Sneak to the little room
at the south side of the round room and open the door.

You will find Yussef checking out his stash of contraband. Wire him to
complete another one of your objectives. On the crate nearby you will find
three bottles of Anaesthetic which you should grab for the last part of the
mission (if you wish to Sedate the Helipad Guards).

Sneak back to the door, get out of Sneak Mode, and wait. Look at your Map and
wait for the two Guards to move away from the door in any direction before
proceeding.

  >>Professional
    ************
      This is much harder at this difficulty because the Guards won't appear 
      on the Map. Look through the Keyhole and open the door when there are 
      no Guards in front. Then quickly look at where they are at before 
      making your move. If things aren't right then go back inside, close the 
      door, and look through the Keyhole until the Guards leave again.

When the coast is clear then go through the door, close the door, and head
north back into the Guards Quarters. If one of the Guards is going near the
Prisoner then duck into the Quarters and wait for him to go south again
before proceeding. If both Guards have gone south then proceed north past the
Prisoner.

As you proceed past the Prisoner then hug the wall to your right and continue
forward to the corner then turn west with the corner and stay against the
wall. Continue west and you should enter a larger room. This room has three
Guards.

Just as you enter the room then you should see a grill on the floor and a
large pillar at the other end. Walk along the right side of the grill then
angle left so you are walking to the left side of the pillar. When you get to
the left side of the pillar then angle right so you are heading to the
Elevator. This will keep the three Guards from being a problem.

When you get to the Elevator then open it, get inside, and press the button
for Ground Level. This will set off an alarm so go behind the Cargo and
crouch behind it. When you get to the top then you will be told to secure the
Helipad. There are two Guards that patrol the Helipad area. The mission ends
when both of them are down.

Because the M60, found in the Guards Quarters, is such a large weapon there
is no way to Sedate both Guards and keep the weapon at the end of the mission
which is why you should use the Standard Strategy (explained later) if you
want the weapon for your collection.

One of the Guards stays by the door but occasionally goes north to urinate on
the nearby wall. The other one will stand by the door but will roam around
the nearby area and the building. But he will also urinate on the east side
of the round building. So you need to ambush him there.

Go through the Helipad door and head to the east side of the round building.
Stay back a bit and wait for the Guard to come here. When he stops then walk
up close enough to get the Threat Meter to barely register then enter Sneak
Mode and creep up on him then Sedate him.

When he is down then go east then north around the corner and follow along
the wall until you get near the other Guard. Usually when you get near him he
will be urinating on the wall. Wait for him to get back to the door before
Sneaking up on him to Sedate him to successfully complete the mission.

0===========================================================================0
|===========================| Standard Strategy |===========================|
0===========================================================================0

This is for those who wish to Kill the two Guards near the Helipad so you can
grab the M60 for your weapon collection.

The major difference in this strategy is that, after ambushing the first
Guard for his clothes, you go after the two Helipad Guards before going
underground. Since you're going to be Killing those two Guards you also have
the option of Killing the first one instead of Sedating.

After getting the Guard Outfit then head north towards the Helipad area and
Kill the two Guards with the Fiber Wire. If you Sedated the first Guard then
wait for him to wake up before doing anything else.

After dealing with the Guards then go down the entrance near the Helipad and
stop in the corner near the Prisoner. Kill Yussef as before and go to the
Guards Quarters afterwards. Take the M60 and proceed to the Elevator. When
you open the door to the Helipad then the mission will end successfully and
you will acquire the M60.

you should have the following weapons inside the Tool Shed:

As it turns out the client you were helping in Nuristan was double-crossed
and the Cargo stolen by an Indian based cult. The client wants the cargo back
and the people behind the theft killed.

At the time the game was released there was some controversy concerning some
material within the game that was offensive to Indians. Some of this material
was either altered or removed depending on what version you have.

There are three missions here and you won't be able to go back to your Tool

Your main goal is to gain access to the sacred cult Gurdwara through a secret
passage in one of the shops in the city. There are also a couple of thugs
within the city looking for suspicious foreigners so you need to be careful.
You will find a contact inside the International Parcel Service shop that
will provide more info.

There is only one level to this Map and that is the City Map itself. And it
is a fairly large area with lots of narrow passages. The two Point of

Pickup, where you will find your initial contact, and the SP12 Shotgun, is at
the southeast corner of the City Map.

| The only new weapon of note is the SP12 Shotgun. There is no way to       |
| conceal it so you either have to Rampage through the mission or run to    |
| your Exit Point with it while avoiding the Guards and their gunfire near  |
| the end of the mission after completing your main objectives.             |
|                                                                           |
| If you wish to get the Shotgun but still get a Silent Assassin rating     |
| then you will have to Sneak it to the Carpets Inter. Shop at the          |
| northwest corner of the City at the beginning of the mission. This Shop   |
| will become your Exit Point at the end of this mission.                   |
|                                                                           |
| Make sure that there is no one on the pathways outside of the shop where  |
| you get the weapon before leaving. Leave the shop when the coast is clear |
| and head north then, after some distance and close to a corner, drop the  |
| weapon and check your Map. Make sure that the coast is clear before       |
| proceeding further.                                                       |

| Continue with this pattern of running to a point and dropping the weapon  |
| by a corner and checking the Map until you reach the Shop. The problem    |
| here is that the door is locked so you need to drop the weapon at the     |
| inside part of the corner so you can pick it up at the end of the         |
| mission.                                                                  |

| Make sure that the coast is clear before picking up the weapon and        |
| running into the Shop to complete the mission when you are allowed to     |
| enter.                                                                    |

| Notes  | Everybody, Civilians, Guards, and Targets, have randomized       |

| General Notes \
0=======================================================>

This can be a tricky mission because of the random placement of the Agent and
the randomness of the Guards and Civilians. Even more unusual is the
appearance of what is known as the Purple Turban Guard which I will go into
more detail on in the mission walkthrough including safe disposal of him.

According to Jason it is possible to kill the Assassin in the Market without
firing a shot but it requires a lot of effort and for things to go right.
But, as I just noted, the wandering Assassin can freeze in place which will
make it a lot easier for you to take him down and do it cleanly. The amount
of time to allow this to happen will depend on platform (it takes longest on
the PC version).

  >>Xbox 360 and PS3 Versions
    *************************
      If you've done everything correctly prior to this mission then, when 
      you bring the SP12 Shotgun into the next mission, you should earn the 
      {All Shotguns Collected} Accomplishment.

0===========================================================================0
|===========================| Standard Strategy |===========================|
0===========================================================================0

You will start in an open area at the east side of this city. The city
consists of a maze-like system of narrow paths. The place also swarms with
Guards and Civilians. If you stand still for too long and a Guard hovers
around for awhile then he will get spooked and fire on you. So you should
keep moving to avoid this problem.

The International Parcel Service shop is at the southeast corner of the city.
It is here you will meet with your initial contact who will mark a specific
shop on the Map where you will find the Agency contact.

The Agency contact can be found randomly in one of six empty shops (however,
it will always be marked as Carpet Inter.). It should be noted that he
appears on the Map as a VIP regardless so you don't even need to go to the
IPS shop. The empty shops can be found on the Map by searching for a short
light gray line. This info is useful for later in the mission.

Go to the Agency contact and you will find that it is Agent Smith again. He
is holed up in his office and pretty drunk. He informs 47 that he was trying
to do basic surveillance and that all of a sudden there are people are trying
to kill him. He did, however, pick up part of a conversation concerning the
cult leader stepping up security because of a rumored attempt on his life.

Agent Smith also tells 47 that there are a couple of Assassins trying to look
for him. He wants 47 to find them, kill them, and take their picture with the
Camera that he gives him. When 47 comes back with the pictures then Agent
Smith will sober up and help him to the secret passage which is located in
another shop.

After the cutscene then two Assassins will appear on the Map. One will be
randomly perched on the second level of a shop that is on the edge of one of
the large open Markets. The second will roam randomly within both of the
Markets. He will never leave the Market area unless he sees you and decides
to chase you.

It should be noted that if he sees you, regardless of whether or not he
chases you, this will count as an Close Encounter so, if you want to keep
your score clean, you need to avoid him. The fact he never leaves the Market
area and that it is usually swarming with people makes it tricky to get rid
of him without drawing too much attention to yourself.

But, before I deal with them, I also need to deal with someone else who also
appears on the Map when they do. And that is the Purple Turban Guard (also
known as the PTG). The PTG is pretty damn weird and I don't know why he was
put in the game. He is dressed like a Guard (orange clothing) and wears a
purple turban but he appears as a Civilian on the Map.

When he sees you then he will draw out an SMG-SD6 and run to you. He will
stay with you no matter what you do. He won't do anything to you as long as
you don't pull out a weapon - if you do then he will attack you.

It is quite annoying to try to deal with these Assassins then suddenly have
this guy come up to you leaving you to try to find a way of dealing with him.
So I am going to find him first so I can get rid of him safely before dealing
with the Assassins. Go around the city but stay away from the Market area.
Once you find him then head for one of the empty shops.

The one you should go to is the one called Sohan Lal Travel (with a green
sign) at the northwest or south side of the city. The reason you should go
here is because this is the easiest place to deal with him for reasons I will
outline in a bit.

Go to either one of these shops, enter it, and go into the corner next to the
other door. The PTG should follow you inside. Stand still and wait for him to
get in front of you. It should be pointed out that he tends to move around a
lot even if you are standing still. So you need to find a way to get him to
stand still so you can deal with him.

On one side of the room is a desk. There is a gap between the desk and the
larger metal garage door. Get into this gap and the PTG will get near it.
Move closer to him so he can push you back into the corner of the wall and
get his back turned to you.

Because he is now in the gap and against you he has no room to move about so
he will stand still. When this is achieved then bring out your Anaesthetic,
Sedate him, and Change Clothes (this should make you look less conspicuous).
There is no need to take the SMG-SD6 since you can't conceal it and you
should already have one from the Japan missions.

  >>Xbox 360 Version
    ****************
      When he gets inside then he will stop moving but he is still easy to 
      get behind and Sedate.

After dealing with him then leave the shop. Once you leave the shop then he
can no longer follow you thus leaving him trapped there and no longer posing
a problem for you. If, by some chance, his body disappears after Sedating him
then this is better since he will completely disappear from the Map.

Now head to the Market and to where the stationary Assassin is laying in wait
on the second floor of one of the shops that ring the Market area. When the
other Assassin is out of view then go into the shop and to the stairs then
enter Sneak Mode and creep up the stairs.

  >>Professional
    ************
      The Assassins don't appear on the Map so you will have to carefully go 
      from shop to shop to find him.

Pull out your Fiber Wire and get up to him then Wire him (and Change Clothes
if you didn't do so with the PTG). Then bring out your Camera and take a
picture. This takes care of one of the Assassins. Pick up the R93 Sniper that
the now dead Assassin dropped and wait. The plan is to stay here until the
wandering Assassin comes into view then shoot him with the rifle.

Because of his random patrol pattern this may take awhile. When he finally
comes into view then kill him and drop the rifle. The Guards will eventually
find him and you will get an Alert. In addition, if you kill him when the
Guards are close to him then you will Alert them further and your score will
be more negatively impacted. So try to kill him when he is more isolated to
improve your score.

After killing him then you will need to wait before trying to get his
picture. If you try to get his picture when the Guards when they are around
his body and you stay for too long then the Guards will freak out and shoot
at you. Wait for them to be far from the body before running up to the body
for a quick picture then run away and out of the Market area.

After dealing with these Assassins then head back to Agent Smith. He will
look at the photographs then tell you that you need to kill the cult leader
and his main propagandist, Dr. Von Kamprad. But, as you get ready to leave,
Agent Smith will pass out. However, your Exit Point will be marked on the
Map.

Leave the shop and close the door. As you make your way to the Exit Point
then two more Assassins will appear on the Map. They will be directly south
of the Exit Point.

The best way to approach the Exit Point is from the east. If you decided to
obtain the SP12 Shotgun and managed to safely deposit it near the Exit Point
then make sure that the coast is clear before picking it up. Run into the
shop before the Assassins can see you and head for the west wall to
successfully complete the mission.

0===========================================================================0
|=======================| Perfect Assassin Strategy |=======================|
0===========================================================================0

The only to improve your score beyond the Standard Strategy is to Kill the
wandering Assassin without using the R93 Sniper. Being that he will always be
in the Market and in plain view of everybody this task is extremely
difficult. But, if you wait long enough (and this depends on what version you
have) then he may freeze up with his arms outstretched.

If this happens then it will be easier to Kill him with a melee weapon. This
can be easier still if he freezes up close to a shop. Prep your Knife before
entering the Market area. You need to Sneak up on him in order to attack him.
If you walk up to him then the noise will make him unfreeze.

You need to make sure that no Guards actually walk up to you as you try to
Sneak up on the Assassin. Remember, if they hover around you long enough then
they will attack you regardless of disguise. If one looks like he will walk
to you then back off until he goes away.

When you are finally against the backside of the Assassin then make sure that
there are either no Guards and Civilians in the immediate area or far enough
but walking away from you before attacking.

Quickly bring out your Knife, Kill the Assassin, Holster your Knife, then
quickly drag him into the nearby shop. Then drag him up the stairs as this
will reduce the opportunity for either Civilians or Guards to come inside to
look at the body.

  >>Xbox 360 Version
    ****************
      The Assassin will never freeze regardless of how long you wait so you 
      must do things the hard way. And by that you must attack him while in 
      motion. The main problem with this is that he is very sensitive and 
      will turn around at the slightest provocation. If you don't quickly get 
      behind cover if he does then he will see you which will result in a 
      Close Encounter and your clean run is ruined.

      In order to safely get behind him for attack you must Slide - you can't 
      just run to him. If you run then he'll be completely turned around when 
      you get to him and, if you have the Knife out, then he'll quickly jump 
      back and start to shoot at you.

      You have to wait for him to walk in front of the shops and Slide enough 
      to get reasonably close to him without making him turn around then 
      continue to walk while following him. The best place to get at him is 
      when he walks into the center connecting area while he is close to the 
      shops.

      When you feel that he is in the right place then bring out the Knife, 
      quickly Slide to him, and Slash him before he has a chance to turn 
      around. Then quickly drag him into the nearby shop and hope that no 
      Guards saw you.

If you spook a Civilian while you are attacking that is okay. By the time he
gets to a Guard then you should have dragged the body into the shop and out
of view. You will get a suspicious cult member warning but no more. At least
one Guard will stand outside the shop looking around.

But they will eventually settle down and go about their business once more.
When this happens and that there are no Guards in the immediate area of the
shop then it will be safe to leave after you take the picture of the body to
complete your objectives. Then finish out the rest of the mission as written
but dodging any Guards along the way. You don't want to risk having them see
you and possibly fire on you which would ruin your clean run.

The Temple Garden is the outside of the facility and has the Exit Point. The
Sewers has a ladder that leads into the Pool in the middle of the Temple
(plus a secret ladder the leads into another part of the Temple).

The Temple 1st Floor has three Points of Interests. The two on the west side
are Cult Outfit you can use to disguise yourself. The last one at the
northeast corner is a Patient Outfit that can also be used as a disguise. The
Temple 2nd Floor is where the Doctor, and the Hiding Place, is.

| General Notes \
0=======================================================>

This level is a little tricky because of a Patient that will come up to the
2nd Floor as you are trying to deal with the Doctor. But I've made some
observations and learned how to easily deal with him.

0===========================================================================0
|=========================| Standard/PA Strategy |==========================|
0===========================================================================0

When you start the mission then you will be next to an overturned boat not
far from your Exit Point. Your goal is the Sewers at the west side of this
area. You need to wait for the patrolling Guard, who should be heading in
your general direction, to stop near the end of the boat. Then sneak up and
Sedate him.

  >>Xbox 360 and PS3 Versions
    *************************
      Most of the time he will be frozen in place in the path not far from 
      the Helipad. Run past the boat and stop at the rock wall just beyond 
      the crates. Keep an eye on the Guard on the Helipad in the background. 
      When he turns around then walk on the grass so you can get behind the 
      frozen Guard.

      Get to roughly ten feet behind him then sneak up and Sedate him. Drag 
      him back to the rock wall you were just at.

Change Clothes with the Guard then drag him to the west end of the large
stack of crates nearby. When you get there then turn north to get to the edge
of the water then proceed back east. Go around the corner and to the tie
pole. When you get there then most of the Guard's body will be over the edge
and you can easily drop him into the water.

After dropping him then go back to your starting point and wait. The Guard
will no longer appear on the Map but he is still in the game. So you will get
the warning about a suspicious Guard when he wakes up later even though he is
trapped in the water.

This mission is notorious for Psychic Guard attacks so you have to wait here
until the warning appears then proceed normally.

After the warning is issued then head to the Sewers which is under the
Helipad. When you check the Sewer Map then you will see a maze of pipes and a
Ladder that leads into the pool at the center of the 1st Floor. Check your
Map at each intersection so you don't get lost. Follow the pipes until you
reach the Ladder room but *DON'T* go up the Ladder.

Inside this room are four additional channels where more sewage are merging
with the main channel. One of these channels, the first one on the right as
you enter the room, is a secret passage leading to another Ladder. This
Ladder leads up to the southeast corner of the Temple 1st Floor. Climb up the
Ladder but stop near the top. Look around for any Guards then finish climbing
up.

After this then turn right and enter one of the Patient rooms. Since you're
dressed as a Guard the Patients won't care. The Patient Outfit that you need
is at the room at the northeast corner. All of the Patient rooms are
connected internally. Just go through these doors to reach the Patient
Outfit.

A wandering Patient will often come through this room. Check your Map to find
him or simply wait for him to come through before Changing Clothes. The thing
to note about the Patient Outfit is that you can go around just about
everywhere even if there are a bunch of Guards about. The same cannot be said
of the Cult Outfit. You cannot go onto the Temple 2nd Floor when in a Cult
Outfit or you will be shot at.

Now head to the south central area of the 1st Floor south of the large pool.
Here you should see two doors - one to the east and one to the west. Go
through the west door and in-between two Guards. Even though you will max
your Threat Meter they won't do anything. Go inside the Storage Room and find
the Door Key then leave the same way you came in and back outside.

Now to go after the Doctor. Go north and head inside the main building
through the center door. Once inside the Lobby then turn left and head up the
stairs. When you get to the top of the stairs then turn left and go through
the first door that enters into a connecting room for the northwest office.
Next, stand by the door going into the Doctor's Office, Prep your Knife, and
look through the Keyhole.

Remember that wandering Patient I mentioned earlier? Well, he goes around the
northeast corner of the 1st Floor, enters the building, goes upstairs, and
into the Doctor's Office. Then he turns around, walks back out, and back
outside and the pattern repeats.

Wait for him to appear in the Office and walk out. Then wait 20 seconds
before getting out of the Keyhole. I'll explain why in a bit.

Sneak inside, get behind the Doctor, quickly Knife her, then drag her back
into the small connecting room that you were in earlier. The reason for doing
this is because, by attacking the Doctor, you also instantly change the
behavior of the wandering Patient.

Instead of proceeding with his pattern he will then turn around and head back
upstairs. This is also why you needed to wait a bit before getting out of the
Keyhole - to buy extra time.

By the time you get both yourself and the dead Doctor into the connecting
room then the Patient will be re-entering the Doctor's Office. However,
because the Doctor is not in her chair, he will then start to look all over
the floor for her. Thankfully he won't enter the small connecting rooms so
you are safe.

He will start with the northwest room then go to the northeast room. Then he
will head to the south end of the floor and go through the southwest room and
head to the southeast room. When he gets to the southeast room then he will
stop - he becomes permanently frozen. This is part of the game engine so this
occurs on all versions.

When he freezes then you can safely drag the Doctor to the Hiding Place at
your leisure. In order to not be seen by the Guards you have to take her down
the center of the floor. Drag her back into her Office and out the main door.

Proceed straight south and turn right when you get to the door at the south
side of this open area. This will keep the Guards at the top of the stairs
from seeing you. Then drag her the short distance to the Hiding Place and
deposit her body there.

After that then go back downstairs and outside then head north and just go
straight through the door into the Temple Garden and to the Exit Point to
successfully complete the mission (the Guards outside just see you as a
Patient so they don't care).

You are now on what is known as Hospital Island. It is here that the Cult
Leader, Deewanna Ji, is staying. He is to undergo an operation for a heart
transplant and a pacemaker. You need to infiltrate the hospital and perform
an operation of your own. One that ends the life of the Cult Leader.

There is also some equipment in the office of Dr. Chakran that is necessary
to complete this mission.

| The Map \
0=======================================================>

There are six levels to the Map:

  >>Island
  >>Ventilation Shafts
  >>Basement
  >>1st Floor
  >>2nd Floor
  >>Roof

The Island Map is where your Exit Point is. There are also three Point of
Interests here as well.

The first one, inside the temple at the west side of the island, is where you
will find multiple weapons. The PoI east of that is where you will find a
Cult Outfit. Northeast of that is where you will find a window that will let
you into the 1st Floor of the hospital itself.

The Basement is where the operation will take place. It can be in one of the
four rooms inside the Target Area. There are also three Point of Interests
here.

The one at the south side of the Basement is the Generator that you can knock
out. The other two are where you can find Scalpels. The Ventilation Shafts
are where you can safely look inside the operating room to find the cult
leader. The 1st Floor has nothing special.

The 2nd Floor has the Agency Pickup and a Point of Interest which is the
Doctor Outfit. The Roof has nothing special but can be used as a safe means
to access the Basement through the stairwells.

This is a pretty straightforward mission without a lot of room for
creativity. But it is still a fairly easy mission.

  >>Xbox 360 and PS3 Versions
    *************************
      As just noted, if you have acquired all of the other weapons prior to 
      this mission and obtain the two new weapons in this one then you will 
      complete your weapons collection and earn the {All Firearms Collected} 
      and {All Melee Weapons Collected} Accomplishments.

      This is the earliest you can earn the both of these Accomplishments 
      when you return to your Tool Shed after mission completion.

      If you've killed at least one person with both the Kitchen Knife and 
      Combat Knife prior to this mission then you can earn the {Jack the 
      Ripper} Accomplishment by killing the wandering Guard with the Scalpel 
      near the end of the mission. Killing your Target with it doesn't count.

0===========================================================================0
|=========================| Standard/PA Strategy |==========================|
0===========================================================================0

When the mission begins then you will be at the southeast corner of this
island. From here, proceed forward, around the corner, and up the stairs but
stay against the wall to your right. Beyond the doorway you will see a Guard.
Go into Sneak Mode and wait. Eventually he will head in your direction and
angle north.

As he moves north then creep into the doorway and angle your Camera to keep
an eye on the Guard. When he moves safely out of view then Sneak west to the
other doorway. After you go through the other doorway then run to the path
that leads to the Shiva Temple. As soon as you see the Guard that stands by
the pool then stop running.

There is another Guard that goes around the Temple. But he should be on the
west side at this point so walk north to the Outfit, which is laying on the
ground, and Change Clothes. After that then head to the west side of the main
building and turn north. Your goal is the northwest corner of the building.
Near the corner is a slow patrolling Guard so stay your distance.

When he gets some distance from the corner then continue north, drop down to
the sand, and go around the round tower. You should also find a locked door.
Pick the Lock and head up the stairs. Unlocking this door will also benefit
you later. Run all the way to the top of the stairs which leads to the roof.

When you get to the roof then you should see an upper level to the south but
there are a couple of patrolling Guards up there at this point. Proceed
forward from the door and turn right to go through a corridor leading to the
center of the floor. Then head to the southwest corner where you will find a
set of stairs going to a walkway that goes around the corner.

After going around the corner you should see a couple of large openings in
the roof. One of them is for Dr. Chakran's Office and the other one is above
his secretary. One way to enter his Office is to simply drop down through the
opening.

However, more than likely you will hurt yourself. To reduce injury then
gently nudge yourself sideways onto the short wall on the south side of the
opening. Then nudge yourself until you get near his desk then drop down. You
should land on the desk corner without hurting yourself.

If you do not wish to do this then there is another way inside. Continue
north from the opening to find the stairs leading onto the upper level. By
these stairs, to the left, is another set leading down. Stop about halfway
down these stairs and wait. Every so often the Doctor's Secretary steps away
from her desk to smoke. When she walks away then head down to the door for
the Office. Pick the Lock and enter.

When you get inside the Office, regardless of method, then open the box on
the desk to find the Room Key and the Nightvision Goggles. Pick up both items
then go into the room north of here to find the Doctor Outfit and some
Anaesthetic. After changing into the Outfit then go out of the Office and
back up the stairs to the Roof.

Now that the wandering Guards are gone you can go up onto the upper level and
quickly go back to the stairs at the northwest corner. Go down the stairs
until you get to a metal door - this should be the door just before the door
going outside to the beach. The metal door enters into the Basement where the
Cult Leader is.

Go through the door and you will see a bunch of Guards. They are protecting
the four Surgery Rooms. The Cult Leader is in one of them.

You cannot just go through each room to find him. You will spook the Nurses
and other personnel and this will lead to Alerts. Besides, you need the
Scalpel to kill him (if you wish to keep your score clean). At the south side
of this floor you will find three Points of Interest. Two of these PoI's are
where you can get a Scalpel.

The northern one resides in an office where you need to pick the lock to
enter. The center one has an unlocked door but there is a Nurse you need to
wait for to enter the smaller room before you can go inside and take the
weapon off of the desk. The southern one contains the Generator. Turning it
off will shut off all of the lights and will make things a lot easier.

Go and acquire a Scalpel from either of the two mentioned rooms and then go
south to the Generator room. Keep an eye out for the Guards and pick the lock
so you can enter. Go to the Generator but don't do anything yet. Check your
Map and look at the four Surgery Rooms. One of them will have nobody in it.
Of course, he is not here.

Out of the other three rooms look for the one that will have two people up
against either the north or south wall. They are Guards and this is the room
that the Cult Leader is in. After finding where he is at then pull out your
Scalpel, put on your Nightvision Goggles, and turn off the Generator.

  >>Professional
    ************
      Nobody appears on the Map so you have to do things differently to find 
      him. Inside the Generator Room is a Ladder that goes up into an upper 
      level which is the Ventilation Shafts. Go to the north end and you will 
      find small windows that look into the Operating Rooms. Find the one 
      with the Guards then check your Map to determine where the room is so 
      you can quickly get there when you turn off the lights.

After you turn off the lights then quickly go through the door and run to the
room with the Cult Leader. Nobody will bother you because they can't see. In
addition, the Guards that were protecting the Cult Leader have left which
will make things easier still.

When you get to the Cult Leader then kill him with the Scalpel. This will
take some time. It should noted that you cannot use either the Combat or
Kitchen Knife on the Cult Leader. You won't be able to hit him. If you wish
to speed things up and not worry about your score then just put a round from
the 9mm Pistol SD into his head instead.

After killing the Cult Leader then go back out into the stairwell and outside
through the door at the northwest corner. Then look for the patrolling Guard
as you make your way to the Temple. If you do not see him then head to the
Temple where you will find another patrolling Guard.

If you wish to obtain the Uzi then you can easily get one from either Guard.
Both of them move slowly and you can Sneak faster than that. Sneak up behind
him and wait until you are right against his back before pulling out your
Anaesthetic and Sedating him. If you're going after the Guard at the Temple
then wait until you are on the west side of it before attacking.

  >>Xbox 360 and PS3 Versions
    *************************
      If you killed at least one person with the Kitchen Knife and the Combat 
      Knife then use the Scalpel on him instead to acquire the {Jack the 
      Ripper} Accomplishment.

After successfully attacking the Guard then grab the Uzi and Holster it. Then
retrace your path and back to the stairs to the doorways near where you
started. Wait for the Guard to walk away from the first doorway before
proceeding but, as you near the second doorway leading down to your boat,
stay to the right of it.

If you look down through the doorway then you will see someone that looks a
lot like you waiting there. If he sees you then he will fire a silenced
pistol at you then flee.

What you need to do is sidestep left into the doorway to let him see you then
quickly sidestep right again so he can't hit you. If he hits you then the
Guards will be alerted (but they won't suspect you of anything). If you
follow the assailant then he will lead you to a door which will close behind
him. You can't open this door.

However, if you are close enough to him, then you can enter the door before
it closes. Unfortunately, entering the door will kill you as this triggers
some kind of explosive booby trap. So let him run off. After he runs away
then head to your Exit Point to successfully complete this mission.

The authorities have found the chopper and cargo that was meant for the
client. Both have been traced to Russian crime lord Sergei Zavorotko.

Sergei is the client you have been helping all along by tracking down various
items plus eliminating competitors and double crossers. But now he has been
exposed and the United Nations wants The Agency's help in eliminating him
because he is also a known terrorist as well as a crime lord.

It is against The Agency's ethics, such as they are, to perform a hit on a
former customer but have decided to make an exception because of the business
potential from the UN. So now you must take down Sergei and this leads you
back to St. Petersburg.....

The Streets Map is different in that there are no soldiers and the entire
area is open. The Agency Pickup is where you can find ammo for the Sniper
Rifle. The Point of Interest is the same apartment building where you sniped
the General earlier.

There will also be a bunch of Guards on the first floor of the Pushkin

| General Notes \
0=======================================================>

This mission is interesting in that on your very first time through you only
have one weapon on you - the Fiber Wire. Only after you beat this mission
will you will be able to replay this again and bring any weapon you want.

For this reason I am doing two walkthroughs for this mission - one for the
first time and the second for later replays. These are based on Jason's work
but I made my usual observations and tweaks.

0===========================================================================0
|===========================| Standard Strategy |===========================|
0===========================================================================0

For your first run-through the only weapon you will have is the Fiber Wire.
You have the SVD Sniper in Locker 137 but it has no ammo. However, there is
some Sniper Ammo at the pickup at the west side of the Streets area. But, it
is useless because they are *BLANKS*. It appears that this mission is a set
up. But you still need to get inside the building and kill Sergei.

Even more interesting is that, when you approach the building, then you will
be shot at by a clone, Mr. 17. And he will always appear in the window
regardless of what side of the building you approach. So you need to be
careful on how to approach the building so Mr. 17 can't get a bead on you.

When you start the mission then retrace the path you took to the Manhole you
used in the mission "St. Petersburg Stakeout". In the process you will need
to re-pick the locked door but you will be using this door again on the way
back.

When you get back up onto the Streets and see the parked truck ahead of you
then angle northeast past it. Then go north between these buildings and angle
northwest to get between some more buildings. When you see another truck then
angle northwest so you are between it and the end of the road.

Continue northwest until you reach the opposite sidewalk then turn southwest.
This should put you directly in line with the north corner of the Pushkin
Bldg. Cross the street and go southwest along the north wall then turn the
corner and head to the front doors. When you get to the front doors then
enter Sneak Mode. The reason you need to Sneak is because there are lots of
Guards inside the building and you don't want to disturb them.

Head inside the building and go up the left stairway. When you enter the next
room then you will find that your Target, Sergei, is nothing but a cardboard
cutout. This is definitely a setup all right.

After going through the door then turn left and go through the next set of
doors. Continue going through the hallway until you reach the big room at the
southeast side of the building. Here you will find Mr. 17 standing by the
window.

Creep up to him and Wire him. When you do that then you will get a cutscene
of 47 looking over him. During the cutscene 47 will notice a headset that Mr.
17 was wearing and that somebody is trying to contact him. That person is
Sergei.

When 47 picks up the headset and introduces himself then he threatens Sergei
if he doesn't back off. However, Sergei counters with the news that he is the
one holding Father Vittorio hostage. This news surprises and angers 47 as he
tells Sergei to let him go. But this falls on deaf ears. However, he now
knows where they are at - the Gontranno Sanctuary.

But, first things first - he needs to get out of here alive. When Mr. 17 dies
then all of the Guards on the first floor will disperse from the building to
look for 47. In addition, several Guards will be posted at the Metro and four
more will be inside the Sewers. You need to get to the Metro while avoiding
them.

After the cutscene then Change Clothes and grab the W2000 Sniper if you
hadn't got it from the earlier mission "Invitation to a Party". The Mr. 17
Outfit will keep the Guards from shooting at you as you flee the building.

Go downstairs and run out the front door. Then go to the Manhole in the
street southwest of the Metro Entrance. By the time you climb down the
Manhole and enter the Sewers then you will be notified that the Guards have
found the body of Mr. 17 and that the disguise is no longer good.

It should be noted that no disguise will fool the Guards by the Metro no
matter what so this is why you need to go into the Sewers. However, there is
still the matter of the four Guards inside the Sewers. You need to Sneak by
them. The goal is the door on the east side of the Sewers that you picked
earlier.

Head north until you get near the main Sewer area. Right at the end of this
tunnel is a stationary Guard. Go into Sneak Mode, get behind him, and Wire
him. Change Clothes and proceed northeast. When you see the next pair of
Guards near the next tunnel then enter Sneak Mode and continue forward.

When you enter the tunnel then run to the door which should be unlocked from
your first passthrough. After you go through the door then check your Map.
Look for the two Guards north of your position. When they are clustered and
looking north then run all the way to the train platform to successfully
complete this mission.

0===========================================================================0
|=======================| Perfect Assassin Strategy |=======================|
0===========================================================================0

The only way to improve your score is to play this mission again after you
beat the game. When you played through this mission the first time you had no
choice in weapons. But when you replay this mission later then you can bring
any weapon you want. And this includes the Anaesthetic.

You approach the building and Mr. 17 the exact same way as before but Sedate
him instead. The Guards only move into position when he dies. So the idea is
to drag Mr. 17 all the way to the Metro and kill him there. This will take
awhile but it is worth it to improve your score.

After Sedating Mr. 17 then drag him out the front door and head to the
Manhole you used in the earlier mission - the one where you got the Guard
Outfit. Don't worry if you freak out Civilians - they won't hurt your score.
Drop Mr. 17 into the Sewers and continue to drag him to the Metro. At some
point you will let go of him as you drag him along.

This means that he is about to wake up. When you drop him then bring out your
Anaesthetic and Sedate him again when he gets up. Then continue to drag him
to the Metro. Go through the door leading into the Metro and drag him up the
stairs and down the escalator. When you get to the bottom of the escalator
then drop him and bring out your Fiber Wire.

Wait for him to wake up then Wire him when he does. After that then run to
the train platform to successfully complete the mission.

Even after killing him this way you will still have one enemy killed - Sergei
was the Target, not Mr. 17. Somebody had given Jason a video detailing a way
to kill Mr. 17 without counting as an enemy killed. In order to do that you
need to get him run over by a vehicle when you drag him into the street.

Unfortunately, it is not as simple as you think. You need to have him be hit
while he is awake. If you leave him unconscious in the path of a vehicle then
it will simply clip through him. If he awakens then he will be frozen in
place but will run out of the way of an oncoming vehicle. You have to time it
in such a way so he awakens just before the vehicle hits him but he won't be
able to move out of the way.

There are two types of vehicles - a white Car and a large dark Bus. In order
for this trick to work he needs to be hit by the *BUS* - it won't work with
the Car.

In order to time things correctly you need to take the same path as outlined
but you need to run the entire way to the front doors. Just before Sedating
Mr. 17 then save your game.

After Sedating Mr. 17 then drag him out into the street. Head southwest and
to the road that is next to the Neva River. Save your game again when you get
there. Then go southeast along the center of the road. Near where you saved
is a lamppost that is on the right side of the road. You should be able to
drag him just past the third lamppost before he wakes up.

When he wakes up then note his position in relation to any Buses. If you
timed things correctly then the one of the Buses should be up the street and
heading for you. If the Bus is too close to the Pushkin Bldg. then reload the
first save, wait 30 seconds, Sedate Mr. 17, drag him into the street, and
overwrite the second save. Things tend to work out better if the Bus in on
this street and heading to you.

After noting where the Bus is then reload the second save and drop Mr. 17
further up the street. After dropping him then run far away from him but to
where you can still see him. When he awakens then he will be frozen in place
because you also disarmed him when you attacked him.

However, even though he will do no harm to you (you can even take his clothes
from him), he will count as a Close Encounter if you are close to him. If
your Threat Meter maxes out then you are too close and you will get the Close
Encounter.

It should be noted that the Bus will make random stops along its route.
Sometimes it may make too many stops and Mr. 17 will awaken before it gets to
him. Sometimes it makes too few stops and it will pass before he awakens. But
most times it will make the right amount of stops so you can get a good feel
as to where you can drop him.

When you have his body in the right place then the Bus will hit him just
after waking up. The Bus will clip through him but he will die in the middle
of the vehicle. The game will then tell you to identify the assassin. This
will start the cutscene between you and Sergei. After the cutscene then the
Guards will appear at their stations just like before.

  >>PC Version
    **********
      The Guards will appear the moment Mr. 17 dies, not when you confront 
      Sergei. The frightened Civilians may alarm them but won't affect your 
      score.

Unlike the initial run-through you do have the advantage of the Anaesthetic -
you should still have one dose left. Go back down into the Manhole and Sedate
the Guard that you had to Kill in the previous run-through. Then take his
Clothes and make your way back to the Metro as before and finish the mission
with a perfect run.

And now, the final showdown with Sergei.....

Sergei has taken Father Vittorio back to Gontranno and have holed themselves
up in the Church. Now 47 has to rescue Vittorio and kill Sergei. But he has
to deal with a lot of Guards first. And to make matters worse, all he has for
a weapon is the Fiber Wire.....

| The Map \
0=======================================================>

There are three levels to the Map:

  >>Monastery Gardens
  >>Church
  >>Dungeon

On the Monastery Gardens Map you will see five Bodyguards. Two of them are in
the Courtyard. One of them will do a small, slow north-south patrol pattern
and the other will go around the outer edge of the area.

Two more Bodyguards will be in the larger area east of the Courtyard. A
Sniper will be in the training area to the north of them. The Point of
Interest to the east is the Tool Shed.

On the Church Map you will see fifteen Bodyguards, most of them armed with
Sniper Rifles - including the Custom Rifle. The two in the Church lobby are
armed with SMG's so you won't be able to go through there. On the Dungeon Map
you should find one Bodyguard.

| General Notes \
0=======================================================>

After all of the Sneaking around you had to do in the previous missions you
have to kill everyone here. In addition, there is no scoring at the end of
the mission.

Because of the lack of good weapons at the start of this mission this makes
it hard to get to the Tool Shed without taking damage from the nearby
Bodyguards. However, I found a reliable way to get there with minimal damage.

For this strategy I used the regular and Silenced Ballers because they are
powerful and you have plenty of ammo for them within the Tool Shed. There is
also an alternate method near the end where you can take advantage of a
commonly known glitch in the game engine.

0===========================================================================0
|===========================| Standard Strategy |===========================|
0===========================================================================0

When you start then you will be in the darkened, rainy Courtyard in front of
the Church doors. As noted, the only weapon you have is your Fiber Wire.
Because of the fact that you only have the Fiber Wire it will be hard to get
to your Tool Shed without taking damage. However I have come up with a way to
get there without taking a lot of damage or no damage at all.

From where you start, run up to the Church door but don't open it. While in
front of the Church door, rotate left, move a couple of steps and stop at a
small bush, and look west. Then keep an eye on your Threat Meter.

When the patrolling Bodyguard gets close enough to you then you should see
your Threat Meter go red. The moment that happens then immediately run
forward, angle right when you get to the corner of the Church, and straighten
out so the Courtyard columns are on your left.

When you get to the column at the corner then turn left and rotate so that
47's face is up against the column and pointing east. Through the gap between
the columns to your right you should see several Bodyguards running toward
your position.

Basically what you've done is lure all of the nearby Bodyguards, including
the one from the Dungeon, up here to the Courtyard. And all of them should be
heading toward you. This should give you a clear shot to your Tool Shed. When
they get close enough then turn right and run south and then go left at the
next corner and proceed east. Stay close to the columns so they can provide
cover when they fire at you.

After going through the door at the east side of the Courtyard then proceed
forward and drop down to ground level then run to your Tool Shed. Once inside
then grab your plain Ballers, immediately equip them (using the Inventory
Menu so you can pause and make sure you select the right weapon), and get as
much .45 ACP ammo as you can carry.

  **NOTE: If you have the SP12 Shotgun then I highly recommend that over the 
          plain Ballers for this part of the chapter. Grab that and all of 
          the ammo you can carry. The Shotgun kills instantly at close range, 
          can kill more than one person with one shot, and you can quickly 
          reload it.

          As a matter of fact, the more weapons you have at the Tool Shed, 
          the more options you have in dealing with the Bodyguards.

Look at your Map and see where they are at. Most of them are heading to the
Tool Shed. If they are looking around then fire one shot into the window to
lure them here.

  >>Professional
    ************
      Since you can't see them on the Map then just shoot at the window 
      regardless to get them to come to you.

As they get to the door then kill them as they approach. If you're lucky then
the Bodyguard that patrols the Dungeon will be amongst them. But more than
likely he has run back into the Church and is running about amongst the
others.

When this part is done then go and grab your Silenced Ballers, the 9mm Pistol
SD, and more ammo. Before leaving the Tool Shed you will need to kill the
Sniper that is in the training area. Use the Red Crosshair to find him and
use your pistols to kill him. If you have some Sniper Rifles then use any of
them instead.

After killing him then proceed to the door that goes into the Dungeon. When
you get inside the Dungeon then head to the bottom of the stairs that lead
upwards into the Church and stop just to the right or left of them. Stay here
and look at the Church Map.

See if there is a Bodyguard running about. If there is then observe his
pattern. If his path crosses near the top of the stairs then sidestep to look
up the stairs and kill him with your Silenced Ballers when he comes into
view. The use of the Silenced Ballers will keep the others nearby from
looking for you.

After he is down then go into Sneak Mode, hug the left side of the stairwell,
and creep about halfway up the stairs. Then rotate right and up. You should
see a Bodyguard through the railing. He is part of a group of four near the
top of the stairwell. There are two approaches to take based on what version
you have:

  >>Console Versions
    ****************
      Although it doesn't look like you could you can actually shoot through 
      the wooden railing at the top of the stairwell. Use the Silenced 
      Ballers to shoot through the railings but use the 9mm Pistol SD on 
      everybody else. This will conserve your powerful Baller ammo.

      So kill this Bodyguard with a couple of shots, rotate right a little 
      bit until you find another (using the Red Crosshair), kill him with a 
      couple of shots, rotate right a little more until you find another 
      (using the Red Crosshair), and kill him with a couple of shots.

      Then look northwest a little bit and you should see part of a 
      Bodyguard. Sidestep right a bit until you expose enough of him to shoot 
      then kill him.

      Then creep to the stop of the stairwell and look southwest and up. You 
      should see a Sniper on the upper level. Kill him with a couple of shots 
      then rotate right until you are looking at the pillar nearby. Look to 
      the right of the pillar and up to find another Sniper on the upper 
      level. Kill him the same way.

      Stay in Sneak Mode then get up to this pillar, which will be your cover 
      for this next part, and look southwest. Directly southwest from this 
      pillar is another pillar. By this pillar is another Sniper. Use the Red 
      Crosshair to find him then slowly sidestep right until you see him then 
      Kill him.

      Then rotate left and look south. Slowly sidestep right and you should 
      see the Confessional Booth. Look above it to find a Bodyguard. Kill him 
      then look back down toward the Booth. Sidestep right a little more to 
      find a Sniper near the Booth. Kill him then look up above the Booth 
      again.

      Sidestep right a little more to find another Bodyguard. Kill him then 
      sidestep a little more to the right and go between a couple of pews. 
      Look northeast and almost straight up. You should see the upper level 
      and another Sniper. Kill him and, while looking at the upper level, 
      rotate right so you are looking southeast.

      There is another Bodyguard on this upper level but you can't see him 
      from here. You have to use the Red Crosshair to find him and kill him.

  >>PC Version
    **********
      You *CANNOT* shoot through the wooden railing in the PC version. 
      Instead, move up just enough to see their heads and aim the Crosshair 
      on them. For the rest of this part you can do it pretty much the same 
      as above but with a couple of changes.

      For the Bodyguard above you then you need to move just enough to see 
      his head then kill him. For the last one you need to get the Custom 
      Rifle from one of the other Bodyguards then move to the west side of 
      the Church so you can see enough of his head to kill him.

Killing all of these Bodyguards will take care of all but three inside the
Church. If at any time you start to run low on ammo then run back to the Tool
Shed to get more.

After this part of this mission then grab a Custom Rifle (if you didn't
already), go back down to the Dungeon, drop the Custom Rifle, and go to the
northwest door then pick it so you can get the Church Key inside. After
getting the Key then go back up into the Church and to the door to the east
of the Booth.

After going through this door then get into Sneak Mode and go to the door
that leads into the Church Lobby. Open the door and kill the Bodyguard that
appears. Then creep forward and rotate left so you are looking at the
dividing wall. Use the Red Crosshair to find the Bodyguard on the other side
then sidestep right until you expose him and kill him.

After that then go to the door on the other side of the Lobby and open it so
you can kill the Bodyguard inside the stairwell.

This will complete the first major objective.

At this point you will hear Father Vittorio talk to Sergei about the heart.
This is a clue of what you need to do. Go to the Confessional Booth and aim
at the heart inside. Fire a shot and you will wound Sergei.

It is important that you skip the cutscene that follows. If you don't then
most times Sergei will be just outside the Booth (although sometimes he will
simply run). He is armed with a SP12 Shotgun and can do some serious and even
fatal damage if he hits you. If you skip the cutscene then he will go through
the door in the Church Lobby thus keeping him from firing at you roughly 95%
of the time.

After this part then make a mad dash for the Dungeon stairwell and head back
down then stop and grab the Custom Rifle you dropped here earlier. Wait for a
little bit and look at your Map. Sergei will eventually stop at the upper
level above the Confessional Booth. Go back up the stairs and stop at the
pillar near the top of the stairwell.

Then, using the pillar as cover again, get into Sneak Mode and slowly
sidestep right until you see Sergei. Go into Zoom Mode and shoot him in the
head to end the chapter and the game as you finally rescue Father Vittorio.

  >>Alternate Method
    ****************
      There is a commonly known glitch in the game engine that will allow you 
      to attack Sergei through the Confession Room door. It is best to leave 
      one of the Bodyguards alive before trying this out. Sneak up to the 
      Confession Room door and either Wire, Knife, or Sedate Sergei through 
      it.

      However, you won't actually Kill him - he'll just fall to the floor. 
      Another thing that you end up doing is making him drop his SP12 
      Shotgun. You can go into the other half of the Booth to get the prompt 
      to pick it up but you cannot take the weapon through the wall. However, 
      if you have your own SP12 then you can acquire the ammo from it and 
      essentially take the weapon from Sergei.

      Kill the last Bodyguard then shoot the heart to start the showdown. 
      Sergei will be alive but he'll be sliding along the floor on his 
      backside. The downside to this is that you can't snipe him since he'll 
      be on the floor. But, by taking the ammo from his weapon he'll also be 
      disarmed and he can't hurt you. You can pretty much do whatever you 
      want to him.
