The reason I’ve chosen Hitman: Blood Money is I’ve pretty well mastered this game inside and out, that and I noticed a lot of people have trouble with this complex game. As some of you may have noticed my walkthroughs are pretty straight forward with little or no flash, well for this one I’ve stepped it up a notch and added a little, so I hope you like it. Let me begin by saying I’ve been a fan of Hitman for years and hold the unique, emotionless 47 character in high regard, he’s one of the greatest personas ever created in the video game universe and I hold him in high regard. Coming from a fellow mocked assassin I think it means a lot, in fact I’d credit Agent 47 greatly for inspiring me with my internet gamer alias ‘Jackal’. This is the fourth installment in the Hitman series, and the best one I might add. I’ll try to keep it brief as we touch on a few key things you need to watch out for in the game, first off let me say that this game is not for everyone, moreso for smart, patient gamers. You don’t just go running around killing everyone like a mindless run-of-the-mill shooter, the key to this game and getting the perfect hit is stealth and patience. Real assassins use these two vital techniques to take out their target. If your new to the game scout ahead or try following your target around, as you do so the game mechanics will come to you and you’ll begin to understand how to play the game, above all take the time needed to accomplish each mission. This time around in Hitman the levels are very wide open with many ways of taking out your targets, like Accidents for example, sometimes placing a bomb on a hanging fixture or simply pushing the target over a balcony will grant you an easy, effortless kill. Also another new addition is Notoriety. After completing each mission you’ll be given an update on your current Notoriety via the menu and newspaper articles, if you’ve made it through a mission without any problems than you’ve got nothing to worry about but if you were seen doing something suspicious or more importantly caught on camera then it will adjust accordingly and you’ll read about yourself in the paper, it’s not too much of a bother though as you can bribe local officials and police with the money you’ve earned from your hits to lower your Notoriety, but if you choose not to you’ll suddenly find guards and other NPC’s starting to react to you more often making it much more difficult to complete your hits. Of course just like the other three Hitman games you’ll be ranked on your progress through each level, the best gamers go for the Silent Assassin rank. Remember, stealth and patience will help you achieve this. Finally (on every difficulty besides Pro) be smart with your saves, like before taking out your target or after you’ve disposed of a body, because let’s face it the last thing you want to do is start over when you’re almost finished, but for all things I just mentioned simply follow the walkthrough and you’ll be fine. Lastly I’ll be leaving mission briefings before each mission so you know what’s going on and where you’re headed, plus (seeing as there’s numerous ways to go about) I’m going to give you alternate ways to take out your targets, these will be called Alternate kills. This walkthrough was completed on Normal difficulty and is for the Xbox 360. Every mission has been done on Silent Assassin, I’ve played through and beaten the game on Pro a number of times and what I’ve noticed most about the higher level of difficulty compared to the others is (obviously) you don’t get any saves, the AI is sharper, and you need to be much more careful with your split-second decisions, other than that you can follow the walkthrough as is on Normal and I will take you through. I would make a separate section for Pro but it’s doing pretty well the same thing on the other difficulties only having the reasons I list above, but if you’re stuck and you can’t get SA on Pro then feel free to contact me for further help. Anyways, button up those leather gloves and straighten that silk red tie because it’s time to make a killing… $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ 2- Game $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ $$$$$$$ Story $$$$$$$ With the US election a year away human cloning has become a major campaign issue in the United States. Following a seemingly innocent car accident that killed Vice President Spaulding Burke, the incumbent President is forced by Congress to elect a Vice President who has a strong opposition to cloning. Daniel Morris, a reclusive man, is elected with approval from Congress. The president himself, Tom Stewart, favors the idea of human cloning and wishes to make it legal in the States. With the public’s support, he hopes to regain the presidency in the election year against his opponent Frank Morgan. In the past years, a group known as The Franchise has entered the mix and put serious pressure on the Agency. They have managed to engineer their own albino clones and gained an influence in the US government. With this newfound power they got Daniel Morris elected as the new Vice President. Their hope is to engineer the perfect clone for operation and prevent any competition among their enemies. For this reason they plan to assassinate the President so that cloning is not legalized and made available to competing organizations. The Franchise’s front- runner, Alexander Leland Cayne, has spoken out against cloning in an attempt to prevent public support for its legalization. Since 2004, he has become obsessed with finding Agent 47 so that he can use 47’s bone marrow to create the perfect clone. This obsession has put pressure on the Agency to try and get at 47…so this is where we are. As you progress through the game you’ll find that it’s all a recount of events that have already happened as reporter Rick Henderson gets all the ‘tainted’ facts from Cayne. Events will unfold around you as you gain small tidbits of information along the way and guide 47 towards the thrilling climax. You may also notice that some missions are intertwined with other Hitman games, the prelude to Contracts after the Curtains Down mission for example. So take the missions for what their worth, there is no real clear goal overall in them and there shouldn’t be, after all it’s just another job to 47. $$$$$$$$$$$$ Characters $$$$$$$$$$$$ =============================================================================== Agent 47: =============================================================================== To some he is an urban legend, but to anyone who has encountered him and is still alive, Agent 47 is the world’s most deadliest assassin, a hitman with a 100% hit rate and an unfaltering dedication to his work. His name originates from a barcode on the back of his head, 640509-040147, a serial number that marks his place in a series of cloning experiments designed to create an army of assassins. Hitman’s deadly reputation has made him the most highly paid assassin at his contract agency, but his notoriety is no good thing. When a hitman’s identity is known it becomes harder to work and to stay alive. =============================================================================== Alexander Leland Cayne: =============================================================================== He is a near genius, from an extremely wealthy background. Sadly, a budding career in politics and science was temporarily marred when a work accident left him paralyzed from the waist down. This never stopped Cayne, who continued his work and became a very prominent businessman and advisor. However, he has never been able to shake his suspicion that his accident could have been an assassination attempt. For this reason he has studied the profiles of assassins and is now somewhat of an expert in the field. =============================================================================== Rick Henderson: =============================================================================== The reporter Cayne is spilling his guts to, Henderson thinks he’s been brought in for a simple interview with the former director of the FBI, but he soon finds himself with the story of the century as Cayne tells him all the ‘tainted’ facts about the bald, killer clone Agent 47. =============================================================================== Diana: =============================================================================== She is the only link and contact that Agent 47 has to the ICA – The International Contract Agency. As the contracts, briefings and information on targets are mainly dealt with through The ICA. Diana plays an important and vital role. Her position in the company hierarchy is unknown, and how she’s able to gather all this crucial information is an even bigger mystery. Even though they have never met, trust is the keyword, and Agent 47 will instinctively know when something is wrong… =============================================================================== Daniel Morris: =============================================================================== New interim Vice President of the United States Daniel Morris replaced the previous Vice President Spaulding Burke after a seemingly innocent car accident that claimed his life. Morris is strong in his opposition of human cloning so it’s no coincidence that he is associated with the shadow government organization, The Franchise. Morris is really nothing more than a puppet for the shady organization that plan on sweeping him into the Oval Office by assassinating the President of the United States himself, Tom Stewart. =============================================================================== Tom Stewart: =============================================================================== President of the United States, Tom Stewart is a stanch supporter of human cloning and the medical benefits it can provide, he wishes to make it legal in the States. Blissfully unaware Stewart finds himself the main target in a very dangerous, corrupt game because of his views on cloning. With Daniel Morris now interim Vice President it is The Franchises main goal to take Stewart out and instill a puppet government with Morris as President, as Agent 47 you’ll be put right in the middle of it all as you are hired to protect this man at all costs. Although crucial to the plot Stewart never actually makes an appearance in the flesh in the game. =============================================================================== The Albinos (Mark Parchezzi III, Mark Purayah Jr.): =============================================================================== Targeting the world’s most deadliest assassin is no easy task and it takes more than one assassin. The most powerful and dangerous of these is Mark Parchezzi III a.k.a. the Albino. An expert assassin and master of disguises, he is able to blend in to the background like a chameleon to carry out subversive operations. He is the head of The Crows – a moniker for the cloned assassins created by The Franchise, a subdivision of Alpha Zerox, the shadow government organization. Parchezzi is most definitely the Agency’s and 47’s greatest threat. His counterpart Mark Purayah Jr. is just as deadly. Hypersensitive, adaptive, determined, focused, and better equipped both physically and mentally than ordinary humans he is leader of the ‘The Crows’ Raymond Kulinsky and Angelina Mason, while Mark Parchezzi III is head of the notorious group Purayah is the second in command. =============================================================================== Joseph Clarence a.k.a. “Mr. Swing King”: =============================================================================== He is the owner of the Southland Amusement Park; an out of business amusement park in Baltimore. It was shut down due to an accident involving maintenance and safety for the ferris wheel, which subsequently fell and killed many people. The client of the hit had lost someone in the accident and as no justice was given to Clarence (the judge in the case dropped all charges), the client ordered the assassination. Clarence was one of the regions most colorful personalities in the 80’s and 90’s before the accident, which bled his fortune dry on legal costs. He’ll be the first target you take out in the training mission. =============================================================================== The Delgado’s (Don Fernando Delgado, Manuel Delgado): =============================================================================== Don Fernando is involved with drug smuggling; the client of the hit is supposedly from the region. He is a world renowned cellist, with public performances “rare” for anyone to see. Don was also an officer in Pinochet’s intelligence service. His son Manuel, who mostly heads the trafficking side of the business, is known only to be a target because to make the proper hit (of Don Fernando) seems connected to drugs. They’ll both be your targets in the first real mission of the game. =============================================================================== Alvaro D’Alvade and Richard Delahunt: =============================================================================== The Italian singer lives and breathes opera, and he has a reputation of never being satisfied with his fellow actors. Alvaro strives for perfection in all things, but his single minded dedication to his art has left him with serious flaws. His temper often gets the best of him and he has developed an addiction to sex with juveniles of both sexes. He has an avid fan in the US, Ambassador Richard Delahunt, and lately the two have become almost inseparable. Richard Delahunt is a man living on borrowed time. He is constantly surrounded by US bodyguards in tuxes and equipped with guns and earpieces. Allegedly involved in child prostitution he has created a lot of enemies, and he knows it. Presently he spends most of his time watching his now only trusted friend Alvaro D’Alvade rehearse as the lead tenor role in Puccini’s Tosca, soon to premiere at the Paris Opera. The Ambassador spends every spare moment attending these rehearsals, watching Alvaro D’Alvade’s every move from his lodge, with a sordid of fascination bordering on obsession. These two will be your second set of targets in the game. =============================================================================== Agent Smith: =============================================================================== One of 47’s few allies in the game, he is a top secret agent for the CIA and a clumsy one at that; you may remember rescuing him in previous Hitman games, well he’s in a similar situation in this one as well. On a botched assignment he got himself captured and is now being drugged in a rehab clinic for alcoholics in Northern California, you’re sent in to find out what happened to him and finish what he started. Later on in the game he becomes more drawn into the plot and hires Agent 47 for the biggest assassination attempt in US history. =============================================================================== Rudy Menzana, Carmine Desalvo, and Lorenzo Lombardo: =============================================================================== A long time organizer of the illegal alien’s traffic across the Mexican border to the US. Rudy is just about a household name on both sides of the border, when it comes to delivering drugs, weapons, or 1 dollar-per-hour manpower. But with dwindling goodwill from his good fellows and a huge price on his head, his days are numbered and he knows it. Undergoing treatment in the clinic is more or less a last ditch attempt at hiding from the growing number of bounty hunters. Ironically, in here he’s developed a dependency on alcohol to escape the horror in his head. Carmine Desalvo, a notorious smuggler of illegal arms from Central America. Being under constant scrutiny by different domestic intelligence services as a prime suspect in the ongoing investigation around, he was somewhat hampered in his efforts to contact other prospective clients. As a result he became a little jittery and developed a substance abuse and drinking problem, which is why he has been admitted to the remote Rehabilitation Center for treatment. Former Las Vegas mobster Lorenzo Lombardo has quite a sorted past. Ultimately, he was known as “the Brain & Bankroll” in the circuit. He became a strategic master planner and multimillionaire gambler. He’s been accused - but never convicted – of such crimes as: Hijacking, mayhem, bootlegging, white slavery, narcotics trafficking, rape, burglary, bookmaking & fixing sporting events, numbers racket, extortion and numerous murders. Lombardo knows his time is limited – soon some sort of forensic evidence will connect him with one of these crimes. He has planned his departure from the US, but first, he has to undergo some preliminary tests at the Rehabilitation clinic. All three of these guys will be your targets, one will be your main target and the other two will be optional, the game alternates their target status each play through. =============================================================================== Vinnie ‘Slugger’ Sinistra: =============================================================================== The American Dream that lured Vinnie from Cuba to the US has certainly gone sour. He may have a fortune in the drug trafficking trade but now the police have built a case against him and he’s turned state witness, his partners want him dead. With three other witnesses for the prosecution dead already he has good reason to be paranoid. He’ll be one of the few single targets in the game; you’ll also have to deal with his wife who holds the incriminating piece of microfilm in her jewelry necklace. =============================================================================== Raymond Kulinsky and Angelina Mason (The Crows): =============================================================================== Don’t be fooled be the bird costumes, the harmless looking outfits disguise two assassins and their leader. Singled out by their leader (Mark Purayah Jr.) for the cold passion they share in their work. But this is not their only love. These two share a strong passion for each another and anyone who inflicts pain on either one of them will provoke the wrath of an already highly volatile and forceful killing machine. These two are definitely an odd pair with Kulinsky a former Olympic athlete and Mason who grew up in a traveling circus; you’ll have to take them both out along with their leader, one of the Albino clones, Mark Purayah Jr. Be careful how you carry out your assassination on both of them, like I mentioned above if either one of them learns something has happened to the other their reaction will be unpredictable at best. =============================================================================== Jimmy Cilley: =============================================================================== He is from Dallas, Texas. His father ran a gas station and general store, and little Jimmy got his first job polishing and sorting eggs for his dad. After graduating from Harvard Business School, he worked his way up in the oil business, and soon learned that the only way to take it further was through politics. He’s a civil-rights advocate, pro-choice spokesperson – and he’s strongly in favor of biotech’s many advantages such as genetically modified foods and cloning. The Congressional candidate is rubbing elbows, patting babies, and keeping it clean for the press in New Orleans, his new constituency. A minor character, nothing more, he’s a Congressional candidate you’ll have to protect amidst the Mardi Gras mission; with his politics you can understand why he’s a target. =============================================================================== Lorne De Havilland and Chad Bingham Jr.: =============================================================================== Self professed playboy, porn aficionado and American culture icon. Strip club operator, magazine magnate and born again Christian. Lorne spends most of his time in the master bedroom. Here he peruses the many videotapes surreptitiously recorded through one way mirrors installed in all of the backroom cabins in his strip joints. Blackmailing politicians, clergymen, and movie stars now provide the major bulk of his income. He occasionally throws a big party, where he mingles briefly with the guests, before retiring to his den of inequity, looking for famous people caught in the act. Havilland will have his pesky little dog with him to warn him of anything so you’ll have to silence the dog as well. Youngest son of Senator Bingham, who had high hopes that his son Chad jr. would follow his father’s footsteps. But after High school he often hung out in local bars and sleazy strip joints. And during one of his usual benders he wound up in the back of Lorne De Havilland’s clubs with a lap dancer. One thing led to another, and to cut a long story short, the girl wound up bound, gagged and dead. And as usual, Lorne De Havilland had a camera minutely recording every sordid detail. Chad has worked up a reputation for remorselessly slapping up strippers, sometimes beyond recognition. You’ll have to take them both out and also retrieve the tape of Chad’s questionable behavior. =============================================================================== Skip Muldoon and The Gator Gang: =============================================================================== He is the proud captain of the “Emily”, an old steamer that’s a big tourist attraction on the Mississippi. Apart from his boat, he loves anything that’s been deep fried and all the cute guys who work on board. When he’s not eyeing them up, he can be found on deck taking pot shots at the gators swimming around the banks of the river. Skip also operates a sideline business with The Gator Gang, a gang of rednecks from his small home town of Tennessee, who all just happen to be relatives…somewhere along the line. Skip has a big sweet tooth and has a passion for cakes with a lot of whipped cream, something you can use to your advantage. Consisting of 6 members, Everett Jefferson, Junior O’Daniel, William S. Corfitz, Adam Hendrikson, Joe Netburg, and Elijah Krup The Gator Gang operate on Skip’s boat carrying out all his dirty sideline business for him. Be patient and wait for the right opportunities when taking down all 7 (including Skip), also after dealing with Skip you’ll have to retrieve some sensitive pictures from his safe, pictures that are very sensitive for both Skip Muldoon and his niece Margaux LeBlanc. =============================================================================== Buddy Muldoon and John LeBlanc: =============================================================================== Hank “Buddy” Leitch Muldoon is the rather dimwitted son of a recently deceased Bayou smuggling lord. Rumor has it that he has taken over his father’s business. He adores his new wife and looks forward, with equal childish glee, to the wedding cake and to bedding someone outside his own family. John LeBlanc’s long-term involvement in organized crime has left him paranoid to the point where he can hardly function. While unhappy with his daughter’s choice in husband, he is grateful for her handling the day-to-day business. He now spends most of his days watching TV and wandering the premises mumbling to himself. Both targets will need to be taking out on your last stop in Mississippi. =============================================================================== Margaux LeBlanc: =============================================================================== She runs the show on the island. As the only daughter of John LeBlanc she has been brought up in a criminal man’s world and while friendly she is rumored to be as ruthless as her father is insane. Margaux will be absolutely off-limits for targeting; you’re to protect her from any kind of threat in the same mission you eliminate her husband Buddy Muldoon and her father John LeBlanc. After her misfortune in losing her husband and father you’ll notice in one of the newspaper articles that she hit it big in Las Vegas and has made a fortune there…turning her luck around. =============================================================================== Sheikh Al-Khalifa, Tariq Abdul Lateef, and Hendrik Schmutz: =============================================================================== If there is a deal to be done in the States, it’s no surprise that Mohammed bin Faisal Al-Khalifa would choose Las Vegas to conduct his business. As CEO of Aprix, Inc an Arabian pharmaceutical export company, he has made billions from fat cat government contracts, reportedly linked to biological and chemical agents for military use, and has developed a serious love for gambling. He travels in a caravan of Bentleys with an entourage of loyal bodyguards and very much enjoys the finer things in life – cigars, fine wines, caviar, exotic dancers – anything linked to luxury and good old fashioned debauchery. The brains behind Aprix, Lateef is an eccentric and reclusive scientist preferring to live and work in isolation, compulsive about the integrity of his work. He is on hand to confirm the authenticity of the DNA specimens being purchased by his employer, Sheikh Al-Khalifa. He’ll be carrying a briefcase with a number of untraceable blood diamonds that you can nab after the hit, purely optional however. Schmutz is a South African white supremacist that arrived yesterday at Shamal Hotel in Vegas. He intends to sell his DNA specimens and research papers to Sheikh Al-Khalifa in their meeting at the hotel. Schmutz keeps his specimens and papers in a briefcase in his hotel suite, something you may want to remember. This deal must not go down as all three will need to be eliminated. =============================================================================== Anthony Martinez, Vaana Ketlyn, Eve, and Maynard John: =============================================================================== Martinez used to be one of the good guys. But his penchant for fast cars and fancy nightclubs left him cavorting with the wrong company. At some point, an offer just turned up that was too tempting and now he’s neck-deep into arms smuggling. As an added bonus he and Vaana have found a mutual interest that runs deeper than running guns. To spot him just look for the horned, smiling, devil mask. Vaana is a female of great renown in the Nevada desert area. At the age of 35, she has established an empire in her own right and she has a flair for the dramatic. She’s also an adept Escrima-style swordfighter. She earns a pretty penny on arms deals, which helps finance her high standard of living. Lately she has taken a liking to a certain less-than-straight CIA agent. These next two will be revealed as you retrieve the information on who is targeting you during the masquerade party. First up is Eve, the horrifying singer on stage that sounds like nails on a chalkboard, seriously she could shatter glass with that voice. According to her file Eve is like a spider, luring her target into her web where she will go in for the kill… Last but not least we have Maynard, an efficient killer with a flair for the theatrical. Sometimes it’s this flair that makes his job more complicated than it has to be. To single him out look for the guy wearing the red devil mask. $$$$$$$$$ Weapons $$$$$$$$$ In this section we will cover the weapons of Hitman: Blood Money, the default set of weapons you’re given can be customized with special upgrades purchased from the Kruger Schmidt shop.

There’s a shooting range in the distance with a variety of targets to practice on, plus if you move up a little and to the left there’s a wide gallery of targets to shoot at including bottles, vase’s, containers, and even rats scurrying around the area to practice on. You can find ammo for the many weapons on the table behind you, beyond that is the doorway to the exit, if you’ve seen enough simply run up the stairs and out the door to leave your Hideout. =============================================================================== Death Of a Showman =============================================================================== Welcome to Southland Amusement Park in Baltimore, home to one of the most colorful personalities the region has seen in the past 20 years, Joseph Clarence a.k.a. “Mr. Swing King”. It’s too bad the park has seen better days, after a fatal accident involving the ferris wheel (which fell and killed many people) Clarence bled his fortune dry on legal costs. Now “Mr. Swing King” is a desperate man trying to rebuild his wealth and reputation, it’s a shame that in getting off scott free he obviously rubbed one of the victim’s families the wrong way. 47 is coming to put this bumbling fool out of his misery, but as you’ll soon find out Clarence made a deal with some pretty unsavory company, watch yourself… Objectives: - Kill Joseph Clarence a.k.a. “Mr. Swing King” - Escape Weapons to Bring: - None Selectable This is simply a training mission so you don’t have to worry about your rank here, if you’re new to the Hitman games or have never played Blood Money before I suggest you follow the tutorial through the training mission. Press the ‘Back Button’ to bring up your current lesson in the training mission if you forget. To begin let’s move left down the pier and step up over the wooden planks, follow the dilapidated walkway and hop up to the right, just move the ‘Left Thumbstick’ to the wall and 47 will do the rest pulling himself up. Proceed to the entrance of the Southland Amusement Park, Diana will chime in and give you some intel on your objectives. Walking past the ice cream truck and bloodstained open car move up to the gate and wait for the guard, after their short conversation 47 will knock him out. Open your inventory by holding down ‘X’ and look at the picture, now enter the gift shop to the left, making your way in you’ll notice two more guards outside the window. To distract them get out a coin from your inventory and toss it out the far open window, it may take a few tries for the inexperienced but 47 has an unlimited supply of coins so no worries. Hold down the ‘Left Thumbstick’ to prolong your throw, the longer you hold it down the further it’ll go, once their distracted move quickly out the door and to the theater through the double doors ahead. There’s a gangster in here torturing that guy from the car, to sneak up behind him hold down the ‘Left Trigger’ as you move and get out your Fiber Wire from your inventory. When you’re close enough behind the gangster press the ‘Right Trigger’ to strangle him. Ignore the guy’s cries for help and pick up the gangster’s gun then climb up the red trellis just behind you to the right; to jump to the balcony simply walk up to the rail and 47 will accommodate you by leaping across. You’ll now have to clear out this next room with the gun you picked up, be ready because as soon as you pick the lock the two gangsters will be on to you. As the door opens get out the SLP.40 Pistol you picked up and shoot the two guys dead, aim for those headshots and they’ll go down a lot easier. Next hide their bodies in the two containers in the room, once done pull the Kitchen Knife out of the closet and hide inside as the chemist will run inside to find out what happened. As he gathers up the money on the table sneak up behind him and eliminate him with either the Kitchen Knife or the Fiber Wire, it doesn’t really matter which one you use. Now take the chemist clothes and keycard, leave out the double doors he ran through and open the door with the keycard. Make your way down the walkway until you reach a room with the baking soda crate in it, collect the gun and place it in the crate or simply do the same with the gun you already have, don’t forget to dump the Kitchen Knife as well, it’ll be a dead giveaway with the metal detector ahead. Pick up the crate and continue along the walkway until you reach a guard, he’ll hold out his hand and search you with the metal detector, just sit still while he does, keep in mind this is how you’ll be searched throughout the game. After he gives you the okay to move on proceed into the control room and place the crate on the floor to the right, retrieve the gun from the crate and holster it. Now jump down onto the elevator as the cutscene begins, get out your Fiber Wire and strangle the guard, 47 will pull him up on top of the elevator, keep this method in mind when dealing with enemies throughout the game, it’s effectively silent. Jump down into the elevator, move forward and break the utility box, the lights will go out so you’ll have to move silently through the factory to the bathroom door. Open the adjacent door to the bathroom and get out your gun, silently grab the guard relieving himself. Remember this method throughout the game; it’s an easy knockout instead of having to use your Syringe Sedative. With the human shield move into the next room with the three guards, kill them all and knock out your shield if he isn’t already dead yet. Climb the ladder and pick up the Rifle Suitcase, after the cutscene unpack the suitcase via your inventory. To enter your scope click the ‘Right Thumbstick’ twice, there are three guards to snipe here. One atop what’s left of the ferris wheel, one patrolling the ground below, and the last one on top of the office in the distance, kill all three. Now if you want you can take the Dragunov with you, just place it back in the Rifle Suitcase and carry it with you. Go back out towards the ladder but go right and through the door, climb down the pipe and walk to the office, pickup the Syringe Poison at the ICA point. Keep these points in mind throughout the game; they’ll help you out, just look for the ICA mark on the map. Move up the stairs and grab the Shotgun ammo on the table, after the conversation ends put down the Rifle Suitcase and push the hapless guard over the rail, to do so simply get behind him and press the ‘Right Trigger’. Or you can simply bash his brains in with the Fire Extinguisher, either way’s fine. Now quickly move into the room and get out the Syringe Poison, poison the drink by holding the aimer over it, as the aimer turns red inject it into the drink and promptly hide in the closet to the left. Once the secretary dies leave the closet and move into Mr. Swing King’s office, after a short cutscene you have your choice in how to take out this blundering idiot. The Hammer on the far table, the Baseball Bat on the wall or simply poison, strangle, or shoot the begging fool. After he’s dead head back and grab the Rifle Suitcase where you left it then move out the window in the office to the ICA point on the map, pickup the RU-AP Mine and Detonator and proceed down the walkway to the open window. Now place the mine on the winch, get over back by the window and detonate it. The only one’s left will be the gang leader in the purple suit and one of the women, for an easy kill unpack the Dragunov again and lay one in his head from the balcony, he shouldn’t see you, alternately if you didn’t take the Dragunov you can simply kill him with the SLP.40 Pistol, and if you want to keep a low profile as the girl will be a witness, eliminate her as well. Collect the Desert Eagle on the gang leader and proceed out the door to the far left to escape. As you read the paper note that how you’ve completed your mission will dictate the headline in the paper, just letting you know. ------------------------------ ------------------------------ =============================================================================== A Vintage Year =============================================================================== Meet Manuel and Fernando Delgado, renowned and well respected wine makers in the town of Santa Rosa, Chile. But what looks like a family business is in fact the perfect cover for their cocaine factory. Under the cover of a public unveiling of a new wine label infiltrate the mansion, kill Delgado and his son and escape by seaplane. Watch out for public TV cameramen as you accomplish your objectives… Objectives: - Kill Don Fernando Delgado - Kill Manuel Delgado - Escape the Vineyard Weapons to Bring: - Standard Equipment, No Guns If you want to use a moment to take in the scenery I wouldn’t blame you, this is a gorgeous level. Head forward running all the way around the grounds past the block of concrete and chunk in the wall until you reach the end of the building by the explosive barrels. Stay hidden here near the corner until you see the guard come, when he turns around on his patrol walk up behind him until he stops again, slowly sneak up and sedate him with the Syringe Sedative. Take his clothes and gun to disguise yourself, be sure to holster the Shotgun. Now head all the way back the way you came and go through the double doors where the lone guard is leaning. Move straight through the area past the touring people and into the wine cellar, it’ll be the only set of double doors not blocked off by the white table. This part is a little tricky, before you can place a mine on the winch in front of you you’ll need to either wait until the guard standing beside it leaves (which could take awhile) or you can just throw a coin towards the door to distract the guard and get him on the move. Remember the coin part as you’ll need to use it coming up, once the guard leaves for his patrol place the RU-AP Mine on the winch. Now you’ll need to play the waiting game, Manuel should be standing alone below the stairs in the little alcove above the hanging barrels before you detonate the mine and kill him. It may take a while but once he’s headed there make sure that the guard near the winch isn’t standing right next to it or he’ll be caught in the explosion negating your Silent Assassin rank, remember to use the coin to distract the guard to get him on the move. If everything is set and in place detonate the mine, the hanging barrels will fall and kill Manuel Delgado; this is an accidental kill meaning you’ve got nothing to worry about, it’s viewed purely as an accident. Quickly leave the cellar as the crowd gathers around Manuel’s body. Alternate kill (Manuel Delgado)- If your not one for accidents and waiting around then as you head down into the cellar wait until Manuel goes into the single room by himself with the chair and table in it then poison or strangle him with Syringe Poison or the Fiber Wire. Drag his body to the container in the corner behind the barrels and toss him inside. With the son down now it’s time for the father, after you’ve left the cellar head right through the double doors and past the steps and lone guard at the front of the Hacienda. Keep going and you’ll reach the corner of the building, there is a drainpipe here to climb up. If you have a hard time finding it consult the map, it’ll be right in front of you at the yellow interest point, and while your at it drop the Shotgun before you start climbing, you don’t need it anymore. Just be sure that no one is looking in your direction as you ascend up the pipe, once you get to the top creep your way to the open window and climb inside. Now Don will be in one of two places, either sitting at his cello playing or standing outside his balcony, if he is simply playing his cello then sneak up behind him and strangle him with the Fiber Wire. If he’s on the balcony you’ll need to sneak into the next room past the sleeping guard and push him off the balcony for an accidental kill. The best way is to just wait in the closet or near the window where you came in then as he returns to play his cello you strangle him. Don Fernando Delgado is dead, the Delgado’s are history. Be sure to take the Snub Nosed off his body before you depart. Alternate kill (Don Fernando Delgado)- If you want instead of doing it this way after you leave the cellar move inside the Hacienda via the back door and sedate one of the elite guards and take his clothes and weapon. Hide his body then get upstairs and pick the lock on the far door to the right, move in and kill the target as you see fit. Then afterwards all you have to do is get back to the wine cellar and take the elevator down to the hanger and escape, the elite guards disguise will keep you safe from detection. I wouldn’t recommend this way though, and you don’t get the extra five grand for suit retrieval. Although if you’re in a bind and are new to the game and you just want to get a completion then by all means go ahead. Leave the way you came in, through the window, then move down to the other side of the house and drop off to the ground below putting you back outside the grounds. Put your suit back on near where you sedated that first guard then head in the opposite direction (towards the waterfall) down the long descending pathway, that waterfall’s just beautiful isn’t it. As you reach the bottom sneak past the worker having a smoke then watch for the elite guard to head into the elevator, if he’s not there then don’t even worry about it and make your way to the second elite guard having a smoke near the water. This guard’s got to go so there are two things you can do here, you can push him into the water killing him or sedate him and place his body behind the crate. True assassins that don’t want to leave a mark would sedate him but if you’re in a rush and just want to finish then just push him into the water. Make your way around the hanger dock sneaking your way past the sleeping guard and into the plane to escape. Congratulations, Silent Assassin rank. ------------------------------ ------------------------------ =============================================================================== Curtains Down =============================================================================== It’s March, 2004 and the Paris Opera is preparing for a new season. But that won’t stop civilians from touring the new renovations and historic parts of the building. All this activity should provide an excellent cover for your operation tonight. Eliminate Alvaro D’Alvade and the ambassador Richard Delahunt, a personal friend to the famous tenor. Rehearsal may be cancelled tonight… Objectives: - Kill Alvaro D’Alvade - Kill Richard Delahunt - Escape the Opera Weapons to Bring: - Silverballer, W2000 Sniper The weapons you’re bringing along are strictly for the alternate kills so if you’re not interested in them and just want to do the basic hit then don’t bother taking the Silverballer and W2000 Sniper. If you do however make sure that you upgrade both weapons the best you can with the upgrades and money available, just be sure that your weapons are silenced before going in. Alright to begin move ahead through the glass door on the left to the coat check, it’ll be just to the left as you open the door. Wait for the receptionist to get up and come to you, a cutscene will ensue and you’ll now have the real WWI Pistol. Just wait in the lobby for now, eventually a worker with a white uniform will pass by you and go down the stairs to the basement below, follow him, making sure not to get too close or letting anyone spot you. As you arrive at the bottom of the stairs the worker will begin hammering, sneak up behind him and sedate him with the Syringe Sedative, take his clothes and hide him inside the container right next to you. Alternately if you want instead of going after the white clothed worker downstairs you can do the same to the green worker in the bathroom just next to the coat check, same drill with him, sedate him and take his clothes then toss him inside the container and head downstairs to where we are currently. Proceed through the double doors past the workers here to the far single door, before you pick the lock make sure that the workers aren’t looking in your direction. Once through head down the stairs and through the door, move down the hallway and go through the door on the right and up the stairs. Make your way left down the hallway then right and through the double doors on the floor here; take the stairs all the way up to the scaffolding. There are two places to set your mine here, on the set of lights near the top left of the scaffolding, just look for the ‘place a bomb’ action, or onto the light fixture just past the scaffolding through the door, be sure that none of the workers spot you placing the RU-AP Mine. Head back all the way down the steps and into the supporting actor’s dressing room, just look for the yellow interest point on the map, hide in his closet. Eventually as their rehearsal set ends the actor will enter and begin practicing his lines and performance, as he leaves to go to the bathroom quickly leave the closet and take the prop WWI Pistol from the counter and place the real WWI Pistol you acquired from coat check onto the counter. Get back in the closet and hide, as the actor returns and retrieves his gun he will depart for his next set on stage, leave the room and head back the exact way you came to get here. Put your suit back on and head into the theater on the 1st floor, move out of the way off to the right near the back row. As the rehearsal is finished and Alvaro is shot in the head eventually the actors will notice something is wrong when he doesn’t get up, this will spark Delahunt to jump out of his seat and get to the 1st floor of the theater. This last part depends on where you placed the mine, if you placed it on the scaffolding near the lights then detonate as Delahunt arrives and panics on stage, just be sure that no one gets caught in the collapse. If you placed it on the light fixture then this will be a little tricky, just as Delahunt runs into the theater detonate the mine and the fixture will fall and kill him as he trips and falls right under it, the reason I say that you should detonate as he enters the theater is because there’s a short delay on the mine, if you detonate too soon you’ll miss him, if you detonate too late you’ll kill him along with his bodyguards negating the SA rank. You may need to use the map to time this just right. With Alvaro D’Alvade and Richard Delahunt successfully assassinated quickly leave the theater as the crowd gathers, escape via the front door where you came in, well done, Silent Assassin rank. You may be a little confused with the cutscene afterwards if you’re new to Hitman, this mission was the prelude to Contracts where 47 was shot and (as we all remember) eventually escaped the police in Paris. Alternate kill (Alvaro D’Alvade)- This kill will require you take along the Silverballer, get to the center of the basement near the yellow point of interest. They’ll be a fenced area in the middle here, climb up it to get behind the stage where the rehearsal is taking place, just be sure that the coast is clear before climbing up and no one sees you. Sneak ahead a bit and you should just be able to see Alvaro’s head on stage, stay crouched and wait until the climax of the execution scene; you’ll be able to tell by the music, get out your Silverballer and aim for his head, when the moment is right shoot him in the back of the head and quickly holster your weapon then climb back down the fence. Alternate kill (Alvaro D’Alvade)- For this kill you’ll need the W2000 Sniper, in the same spot you’ve place the mine on the light fixture there is a ladder nearby, go down it and right to the open hole in the floor. Step down through it and crouch here, while waiting for the right moment in the execution scene get the W2000 Sniper out of the Rifle Case. From here, when the time is right zoom in and assassinate Alvaro, this kill is awful risky though with the worker above and guards patrolling the area that can spot you out but a steady, quick thinking assassin can take him out from here, it is doable but I wouldn’t recommend this method. Alternate kill (Richard Delahunt)- This is probably the only other way to take out Delahunt without an accidental kill, you’ll need your W2000 Sniper for this. Get to the center of the basement again and climb up the fence, without delay get out your W2000 Sniper from your Rifle Case and snipe Delahunt from here behind the stage, you’ll need to have 47 stand up to make the shot. Place the weapon back in the briefcase and climb back down the fence. ------------------------------ ------------------------------ =============================================================================== Flatline =============================================================================== Northern California, home to a rehab institution for alcoholics. But things aren’t always as they seem. In rehabilitation is your target, one of three mobsters. An agent sent to investigate hasn’t been heard from for days. Infiltrate the clinic and smuggle out the agent. You haven’t been the only to visit the clinic in the past few days… Objectives: - Find CIA Agent - Identify Target - Smuggle Out Agent - Escape Weapons to Bring: - Silverballer The Silverballer is for the alternate kill so if you just want to go through normally then don’t worry about taking it along. Start by moving forward following the path all the way up to the clinic, on your way if you glance up you’ll see those trees go up quite a ways. Instead of going for the entrance along the path up to the right move straight and use the back stairs here, turn left and you’ll come to a sleek blue door that blends in with the glass design on the sides of the building, make sure no one is watching then pick the lock and head inside. You should be in a corridor with a medal gate directly to your left, lock pick the door opposite the one you just came through and you’ll be back outside. Move around to the right past the set of stairs and sneak past the window with the security guard inside, go through the door and grab the stun gun out of the ICA drop box, sneak behind the guard and use the stun gun on him, he’ll get up but fall immediately down and out. Take his clothes and SLP.40 Pistol and drag him outside and stash him inside the dumpster, head back inside and collect the keycard and steal the security tape, while your at it you might as well pocket the TMP in the ICA box too. Open the security gate with the keycard and make your way to the next gate down the corridor and do the same, sneak your way towards the gap in the room ahead and wait there by the wall, when the second orderly leaves the room and passes the window climb through the gap and use the stun gun on the orderly in the chair. Quickly steal his clothes and drag him to the container and toss him inside, grab the cell keys and keycard on the table then move into the medical wing and down the walkway, Agent Smith is in the third room to the left most stairs. Be sure no one is watching then head inside unlocking the door, talk to Smith and he’ll give you the name of your main target. Once the cutscenes done sedate him with the Syringe Death Serum by simply pressing the ‘A’ action button next to him, again be sure no one’s watching outside the door before administering. 47 will check in with Diana and she’ll give you some extra targets to eliminate, before we get to them you’ll need to get out of the medical wing, go back the way you came in putting the guards uniform back on. Head through both security gates again and now we can get down to business, move through the door on the right and then straight into the dinning room through the double doors. Now your main target here varies, it’ll be one of the three targets, Rudy Menzana, Carmine Desalvo or Lorenzo Lombardo. The game changes their target priority each time you play through, basically whoever Smith singled out in the photograph will be your main target, the other two are optional, pressing the ‘Back Button’ will explain all your new targets. First up we’ll eliminate Desalvo, he’ll be the one lifting weights in the back near the side entrance and be wearing a green robe. It may take awhile but eventually he’ll stroll in and start pumping some iron, get right behind him (almost as if you were spotting him) and wait for him to finish, once he’s finished quickly crush him with the weight bar and leave immediately heading back into the dinning room. With Carmine Desalvo history now we’ll take out Menzana, he’ll be wearing a purple robe. Go upstairs to the yellow interest point on the map and place the RU-AP Mine on the chain support, head back downstairs following Menzana, once he goes for a drink hidden inside the globe detonate the mine, the light will fall and crush Rudy Menzana killing him instantly, pretty simple accidental kill. Alternate kill (Carmine Desalvo)- When Desalvo goes for his stroll outside you might notice he sneaks a drink by the peeing statue, simply poison the drink when no one is looking with Syringe Poison. While doable it’s high risk with many witnesses outside. Alternate kill (Rudy Menzana)- Alternately you can follow Menzana to the hot tubs and push him into the water for another easy kill, forgive me for saying this but this is a pretty ridiculous way to kill a target. What, he can’t swim? They should have had 47 hold his head underwater, that’d of been so much more realistic. Alternate kill (Rudy Menzana)- If you poison the drink that Menzana is sneaking inside the globe it will take him out quick and quiet. Just be sure no one is watching while using the Syringe Poison, again practice and patience. Return to the room where you took your disguise off that first guard and head outside, there is a drain pipe connected to the pillar; climb up it making sure the coast is clear before getting onto the rooftop. Move along the roof to the left and step over onto the balcony, make sure Lombardo isn’t inside and sneak in through the door and sabotage the gas stove here. Quickly descend back down off the roof and put your suit back on inside, leave the way you got in and make your way all the way back to the start of the level. Agent Smith will be inside the morgue just to the left, before you head inside however make sure that the lone orderly isn’t in there or in the vicinity for that matter, if he is wait for him to leave to the clinic. The guards don’t seem to care so head inside and use the Syringe Antidote on Smith to revive him, before you and Smith clamor towards the exit you may have to wait until your final target Lorenzo Lombardo is dead, it depends on how fast you are. You’ll be able to tell by the split screen when the gas goes up turning his ass into a fireball, but if he’s already dead proceed towards the exit to escape. Nice one, Silent Assassin rank. Alternate kill (Lorenzo Lombardo, Rudy Menzana, Carmine Desalvo)- You can use this next kill on any of the three targets, this will be the hit to bring your Silverballer along for. Head upstairs (on the side Lombardo goes) and open the door to the therapists office on the far left, move past the mirror and take a left through the opening then take a right through the door and run down the hallway to the room on the far left, the door will be open so it’ll be easy to spot. Put on the therapist clothes on the table, now all you have to do is go and find one of these targets, he’ll then meet you in the therapist’s office on the 2nd floor. Whoever it is will sit down and start griping about his problems, simply go behind him and get out your Silverballer, shoot him in the back of the head for a flawless hit. It’ll leave quite a mess but no one comes into the room so it’s no big deal, just leave him where he lies in a pool of blood. Alternately if you don’t wish to make such a mess than you can simply use the Fiber Wire or Syringe Poison on the target. ------------------------------ ------------------------------ =============================================================================== A New Life =============================================================================== Vinnie Sinistra’s American Dream has turned into somewhat of a nightmare. After turning state witness against his friends in the drug trafficking trade he’s become a massive target for elimination. Now under the witness protection agency he’s paranoid to death and has his house under close watch. It’s rather busy today in preparation for his son’s birthday. Unfortunately, for Vinnie, his worst nightmare is about to turn into a reality… Objectives: - Kill Vinnie Sinistra - Retrieve Microfilm - Escape Suburb Weapons to Bring: - W2000 Sniper Before I start let me just say that again bringing along the W2000 Sniper is for one of the alternate kills, so if you intend to follow normally then don’t worry about taking it with you. In this mission there’s numerous ways to get inside Vinnie’s place whether it be by sedating the clown, caterer, or the garbage man down the street. Just note that by sedating the garbage man you can gain easier access to the garage across from Vinnie’s place to get the tranquilizer darts for the Air Rifle in the tree house to take out the barking dog in Vinnie’s backyard, but just follow my lead and I’ll get you through a lot simpler, this hit will be quick. Anyways, to start move forward and head left towards the hotdog van, wait until the caterer leaves and the guard has turned away then use the Syringe Sedative on the donuts in the back of the van. Pickup the donuts and carry them over to the back door of the white van across the street, use the (put down donuts) action and 47 will leave the donuts and knock on the van door. Move around to the side for now as one of the guards will pick up the donuts and return inside the van, after the two guards are knocked out go inside the van and take the FBI disguise off one of the guards and steal the security tape. Approach the house now and break the utility box next to the garage, just be sure that the same guard to the far left doesn’t see you, inside the house Vinnie will eventually wonder why his TV stopped working so the guard in the room protecting him will come and check the utility box. Now’s your chance, head inside the house through the front door and into the living room on the left, after the guards gone strangle Vinnie with the Fiber Wire and hide his body in the closet just behind you to the left, you may as well take the Bull.480 off him too. Alternate kill (Vinnie Sinistra)- Go upstairs to the pink room with the ‘Winnie’ poster on the wall, approach the chest of drawers and you’ll get the action (pour ether on panties), make sure you aren’t being watched then do so, you can find the ether in the house across from Vinnie’s on the table through the garage door. Eventually a guard will wander in and sniff them effectively knocking him out, wait in here until Vinnie comes upstairs to his room. Sneak across to his room and poison him with the Syringe Poison or strangle him with the Fiber Wire, your choice. Alternate kill (Vinnie Sinistra)- Doing the same thing on the first alternate kill wait in the pink room with the knocked out guard then as Vinnie turns and heads into his room sneak out and sedate the guard with his back to you and hide his body in the pink room, this needs to be done very quickly as Sinistra won’t be in there for long, to make it much easier you can simply grab the guard with the SLP.40 Pistol using him as a human shield then knock him out in the pink room, it’s up to you. As he comes back out don’t be alarmed if he pulls out his gun and starts shouting, he does this every time he’s at this point of the stairs. Now get behind him and push him down the stairs, don’t be concerned if at first it doesn’t seem to work, there’s a short delay for those that you push down steps in the game, he’ll eventually die. Another way to score an accidental kill like this is to simply push Vinnie over the rail, keep in mind however you need to push from the right angle for him to fall over. Alternate kill (Vinnie Sinistra)- For this method you’ll need your W2000 Sniper, after you’ve sedated the guards in the van with the donuts there’s a cell phone on the table just to the right as you enter, redial the phone. Move quickly into the garage and pull out your W2000 Sniper from the Rifle Case and wait until Vinnie moves in front of the window, when he does quickly snipe him and promptly place your W2000 Sniper back in the briefcase. Just make sure no one sees you as you get out and put away your rifle, also watch for the lady with the hedge clippers as you leave. Move out the door just in front of you to the left by the bookcase and into the kitchen; proceed through the door on the right to the next door below the stairs by the painting. Head down the hallway left through the door in front of you, carry on through the double glass doors and into the indoor pool area. Wait here by the stairs to the pool for Vinnie’s wife, eventually she’ll clamor in half drunk for a swim, when she begins down the steps into the pool push her in and retrieve the necklace. Another way to get the microfilm off Vinnie’s wife is to sedate the pool boy once he goes over by the shed and take his clothes then go up to his wife and she’ll seduce you upstairs, simply wait for her to pass out from the drugs and alcohol then grab the necklace off her. A final option is to sabotage the grill in the backyard, get the lighter fluid from the shed then spray it into the grill, eventually she’ll wander over and be barbequed scoring an accidental kill. Retrieve the necklace and leave through the indoor pool area. With the microfilm necklace and Vinnie ‘Slugger’ Sinistra successfully taken out head back to the van where you sedated the two guards and retrieve your suit. Move towards the gate where you started and escape the suburb, I told you it’d be quick, good for you, Silent Assassin rank. ------------------------------ ------------------------------ =============================================================================== The Murder of Crows =============================================================================== Mardi Gras, one of the most dazzling festivals of the year, filled with blinding lights, parade balloons, massive crowds and three assassins in bird costumes. Take on the Crows as you sneak through the back alleys of New Orleans protecting a politician from assassination. Be sure not to raise suspicion is such a public area… Objectives: - Kill Mark Purayah Jr. - Kill Raymond Kulinsky - Kill Angelina Mason - Protect the Politician - Escape - Retrieve Diamonds Case Weapons to Bring: - Silverballer, W2000 Sniper For this mission you’ll definitely need to take your Silverballer along, upgraded with at least a silencer, the W2000 Sniper is strictly for the alternate kill. Alright follow Diana’s advice and follow the guy in the red bird costume, his route is random but he’ll wander into one of the back alleys, when he does sedate him and take the bird costume. Quickly hide his body in the nearby dumpster (every alley has one) and put your suit back on, you’ll have to be quick here as policemen will patrol each alley, for now leave the diamond case near the dumpster; we’ll come back for it later, make sure you remember which alley it’s in on the map. Our first target will be Angelina Mason. Her route is random as well but if you wait in one of the alleys eventually you’ll come across her, or you may just get lucky and spot her right away, with her bird costume she’s not that hard to find. I would suggest waiting in one of the alleys in the middle of the map; she passes through them more often. Once you locate Mason follow her around the map until she reaches one of the alleys, when the coast is clear quickly sneak up behind Mason and strangle her with the Fiber Wire or poison her with the Syringe Poison, again your choice. Collect the walkie talkie and SLP.40.S from her then quickly hide her body in the nearby dumpster. If you need more time for the kill on Mason and keep getting caught wait until she gets to the western most alley (where the hanging piano is) and take her out there, hide her body behind the small wall to the right. Alternate kill (Angelina Mason)- On the western part of the map you’ll see two interest points close together, head there and into the alley. Here you’ll notice a hanging piano, climb up the right where the wooden plank is, move along it climbing up a few more times until you reach the metal walkway. Next creep across the ledge and head up the fire escape, move over to the rail and you’ll leap across, place the RU-AP Mine on the winch and climb back down the way you came up. Eventually Mason will wander over underneath the piano, detonate the mine and the piano will fall crushing Mason for an accidental kill. Although fairly easy this kill complicates things a bit as if she’s completely covered by the piano in the collapse you won’t be able to get the walkie talkie thereby negating Kulinsky’s location, but if this happens and you just want to find him yourself in one of the three possible locations then be my guest. Try detonating as she’s about to leave, that way she’ll only be caught in a portion of the collapse and you’ll still be able to retrieve the walkie talkie for Kulinsky’s location. Now Kulinsky will be in one of three locations- Above the Blues Bar, above the Rock Bar, or above the Salsa Bar, check the map on the 2nd and 3rd floors to find out. I’m going to list the steps needed to get to Kulinsky in the next three parts, so follow accordingly. Above the Blues Bar- There is an alley just to the side of the Blues Bar, head down it and make your way around to the back of the building then through the door, just be sure your not seen by the kitchen worker who walks out with garbage every now and then. Go up the stairs and through the door into the Blues Bar, move up to the bar and to the left and you’ll see two doors on either side of the piano, watching for the kitchen worker, barman and chef sneak your way through the left door and past the kitchen then through door at the back. At the top of the stairs there is a couple kissing, to get rid of them flip the light switch and hide in the cupboard, once they leave head up the stairs and to the door. Before entering check your map to see where Kulinsky is then enter, make sure he’s not looking towards the door. Pick the lock and sneak inside getting your Silverballer out, aim and shoot him in the head to eliminate Raymond Kulinsky. Above the Rock Bar- Go down the alley beside the Rock Bar and climb up where the wooden plank is, there is a kitchen worker that comes in and out of the alley so be careful your not seen. Climb up over the box then onto the metal walkway, creep across the narrow ledge and go through the window. Head down the spiral staircase then past the bar and move into the area where people are dancing, move around to the left and through the far door and you’ll reach a line for the toilet. Head forward past them and make sure the chef isn’t watching then pick the lock on the door and head all the way up the stairs, go through the door and up to the next one on the right. Remember to check your map to see where Kulinsky is before entering the room, pick the lock then sneak inside and just like the Blues Bar aim and shoot Raymond Kulinsky in the back of the head. Above the Salsa Bar- Just like the first two bars there is an alley to the side of the Salsa Bar, head down it and through the back door on the right, be sure to watch for the kitchen worker before entering. Head up the stairs on your left making sure the chef doesn’t see you then move through the doors to Kulinsky’s location, pop him in the back of the head with your Silverballer to put an end to Raymond Kulinsky. Alternate kill (Raymond Kulinsky)- For this method you’ll need the W2000 Sniper, on the 2nd and 3rd floor of the two buildings in the center of the map you’ll notice yellow interest points. From these locations with your W2000 Sniper you can take out Kulinsky, it obviously depends on which bar he’s in but each point is right across from the bars giving you a fair shot at your target, Raymond Kulinsky. Now it’s time for our main target, one of the albino clones, Mark Purayah II. Go back to where you sedated the guy in the red bird costume and put it back on, grab the diamond briefcase and head towards the building on the north west corner of the map, just opposite the piano back alley. Proceed to the front doors where the guy in the yellow bird costume is standing and he’ll wave you on through, go left up the spiral staircase and into Purayah’s room. Place the Diamonds Case on the table and the guard will instruct you to leave, just ignore him and stand over by the closet. After he leaves immediately sneak up behind Purayah and take him down with the Fiber Wire, quickly hide his body in the nearby container before the guard returns. Now get over in the far right corner behind the door, when the guard returns sneak up behind him and sedate him, take his MP9 then grab the Diamonds Case and leave the building the way you came in. Go back to the alley where you sedated the first guard and reacquire your suit, escape to the extraction point on the southern part of the map, just make sure you still have the Diamonds Case when it’s all said and done, very nice, Silent Assassin rank. Alternate kill (Mark Purayah Jr.)- For this you’ll need the W2000 Sniper, in the western most alley where the piano is there a pipe near the small wall to the right where you hid Mason’s body. Climb up it and unpack your W2000 Sniper from the Rifle Case, directly across from you in the distance Purayah will show himself on the balcony every now and then. When he does zoom in and assassinate Mark Purayah Jr. for a flawless kill, immediately place the W2000 Sniper back in the briefcase and climb back down the pipe. Alternate kill (Mark Purayah Jr.)- In the bookstore right next to the building Purayah’s in go inside and flip the light switch, as the owner comes over to turn it back on quickly move inside through both doors and up the spiral staircase. Make your through the upstairs until your right across from Purayah on the map, they’ll be a small boarded up opening here, crouching down get out your Silverballer and wait for the right moment when Purayah passes by. You’ll have to be quick but once he does shoot him through the small opening dead and leave the way you came in. ------------------------------ ------------------------------ =============================================================================== You Better Watch Out… =============================================================================== Celebrate Christmas with porn capitalist Lorne De Havilland. Travel to his estate mounted high up in the Rocky Mountains. But you aren’t there for the spectacular view, expensive booze and cheap women. You’re sent to take out sex addict Chad Bingham and the host himself. Be careful, at such a dangerous height your next step could be your last… Objectives: - Kill Lorne De Havilland - Chad Bingham Jr. - Retrieve Video Tape - Escape the Estate Weapons to Bring: - Silverballer On the loading screen you’ll probably be curious as to who the ‘?’ is. This represents a female assassin who’s been sent to kill you, but you have nothing to worry about, she isn’t a target and as long as you don’t let her ‘seduce’ you you’ll be fine, and again taking the Silverballer along is strictly for the alternate kill. As you start make your way forward quickly to the elevator door up towards the left, be sure to hug the wall as to not be seen on camera. Take the elevator up to the 1st floor and you’ll be greeted upon arrival, head inside to the left following the hallway into the heart of the party, go over to the bar and speak to the bartender. He’ll give you some aphrodisiac, on the right side of the bar a lone martini glass will be here, this is Chad’s drink, pour the aphrodisiac into it, if it’s not there just wait for the waiter in the white jacket to return with his glass and place it on the bar. Follow the waiter outside to the grotto, eventually Bingham will have a sip and take a girl off with him to the back, follow him. Before following him into the VIP area check your map and make sure the lone guard isn’t anywhere in the corridor, if it’s clear continue following Bingham, in this instance you’ll run into the female assassin who wants you to come with her into one of the private rooms, you can take her out if you wish but you’ll have to be quick. As she moves inside the private room quickly get behind her and push her into the couch to knock her unconscious, personally I’d just ignore her entirely and continue following Bingham. As the two make themselves comfortable if you don’t want to wait for them to finish simply interrupt their interlude by opening the door, Chad will leave down the steps to the right. Follow him down making sure not to get too close, as he arrives at the balcony sneak up behind him and push him off for an easy accidental kill, the Senators son is dead. Alternate kill (Chad Bingham Jr.)- You’ll need the Silverballer for this, instead of spiking Chad’s drink make your way past the VIP area and all the way down the stairs (where you push Chad over the balcony). Get out your Silverballer and crouch down, now aim above and shoot the bottom of the glass hot tub Chad is in, the glass will give way and Bingham will fall to his gruesome death. Make your way back to the top of the stairs, hide behind the door here and wait for the guard, when he comes through the door sneak up behind him and sedate him with the Syringe Sedative. Take his clothes and make your way back to the party area, just to the left of where you first entered the party there’s a ‘staff only’ door, go through it and into the kitchen. If nobody’s around use the Syringe Sedative on the sausage on the counter, pick it up and leave the way you came in. Head back into the party area and past the two red suited guards; follow the corridor around to the right until you reach two guards guarding the door to the elevator. Proceed past them and into the elevator, with the disguise you’ll have no problem getting through. Take the elevator up to the studio, as you arrive Havilland will be in either the studio watching the girls or outside on his private balcony, complicating things a bit here is Havilland’s noisy little dog, well that’s why we have the sausage. Wait until he begins toward the balcony then drop the sausage, make sure the dog sees it then after the little guys knocked out follow Havilland out to the balcony, when he’s near the edge push him off, Mr. Lorne De Havilland’s porn days are over. Alternate kill (Lorne De Havilland)- In the studio towards the back behind the graveyard centerpiece is a ladder, when the coast is clear take it up to the metal walkway. Move around to the right and along the left side of the railing you’ll eventually get the ‘place a bomb’ action, do so and climb back down. When Havilland enters the studio and stands under the lights detonate the RU-AP Mine, the lights will fall and kill him. While this is doable on SA you’re likely to keep getting a few girls killed in the process, so I wouldn’t recommend it. Exiting Havilland’s quarters there is a room on the right with the video tape in it, wait until the guards aren’t looking then snag the tape. Get back to the elevator, now you can choose to escape in disguise without your suit by going to the hangar and extracting with the helicopter, you’ll be searched so make sure to leave any guns behind. Or you can make your way back down to the 1st floor and reacquire your suit then go back down to the pier and escape in the boat where you began, it’s entirely up to you, remember to watch out for the security camera while leaving. Also keeping in mind the extra five grand you get for escaping with your suit, congratulations, Silent Assassin rank. ------------------------------ ------------------------------ =============================================================================== Death on the Mississippi =============================================================================== Welcome to the Deep South. Travel aboard the “Emily”, an old steam ship that’s quite the tourist attraction in the area. Eliminate the Gator Gang and retrieve sensitive photographs from Captain Skip Muldoon’s private safe. When traveling on the Mississippi, there’s plenty that could get lost in the river below… Objectives: - Kill Skip Muldoon - Kill the Gator Gang - Retrieve Pictures - Escape via the Rescue Boat Weapons to Bring: - Standard Equipment, No Guns To begin move around to the right side of the deck near the rail, just keep watching the peaceful water and countryside for now. Eventually a lone guard will wander past you down the far right side of the boat, wait until he passes the area connected by the walkway then sedate him with the Syringe Sedative. Take his clothes but not his gun as you’ll be searched coming up, hide his body behind the boxes at the end, head back and go right then pick the lock on the ‘staff only’ door, as always make sure no one’s watching you. Now there are 6 members of The Gator Gang you’ll need to take out, we’ll do this one by one so stay with me, the first in the current area you’re in. Head down to the very end of the engine room and you should spot one of the gang members leaning against the rail, if he’s not there yet just be patient and eventually he’ll wander into position. When the coast is clear push him into the machinery for your first Gator Gang member kill, 1 down, 5 to go. Alternately you can throw him into the furnace nearby, you’ll have to knock out the worker nearby first but once you do you can drag him over to it and toss him in. Getting back over to where you began the level head up the stairs then through the doors, stay on 3rd deck and head through the double doors in front of you. You should see the second gang member kissing a girl in the middle of the hallway; if he’s not then he’s either in his room or already outside having a smoke. When he comes back out of his room follow him outside, your window of opportunity will be short on this so when he leans against the rail nudge his redneck ass on over, 2 down, 4 to go. They’ll also be a women who comes out every now and again complicating things, so you may have to wait for the gang member to come out a few times to get the timing right. Head back inside then down the hallway and take the stairs up to the 4th deck, move through the crowded room then past the double doors to the next room on the deck. Approach the guard on the right and he’ll search you, once you’re cleared move on through and into the next room on the deck. They’ll be a guest in a suit that asks you to steer the waiter in his direction, just ignore him and continue forward, go through the single door on the far right. There should be two guests in here arguing over a poker game, after they leave pick the lock on the door ahead of you then move inside, if the guard isn’t in here yet quickly put on the 1st class waiter outfit, this disguise will allow you full access to everywhere on the boat. Leave through the door on the left and move down the hallway, enter through the first door on the right marked ‘private’ and into the kitchen. A fellow waiter will approach you, after the cutscene wait until the waiter isn’t looking then poison the cake with the Syringe Poison, or you can simply pick up the cake then drop it doing the same thing on the platform outside. After you’ve gone through the door on the right and poisoned the cake drop it, don’t worry you won’t have to get another one. The third gang member is on the platform walking around, wait until he passes the steps and stops at the rail, push him over to eliminate another Gator Gang member. We’re half way there, 3 down, 3 to go. If you have a hard time pushing him over the rail simply use the Syringe Poison or Fiber Wire then toss him overboard. Go back and grab the cake then proceed up the stairs on the platform to the 5th deck, where Skip and the rest of his goons are. Walk over to the door and the gang member will search you, go inside and into the bathroom on the left, drop the cake here for now and leave the bathroom. Eventually the fourth gang member will enter the bathroom to relieve himself, sneak up behind him and strangle him with the Fiber Wire, hide his body near the toilet then shut off the bathroom light as you leave, 4 down, 2 to go. This next one will require a little bit of patience on your part, flick off the light in the hallway near the bathroom then as the fifth gang member passes through he’ll stop and flick the light back on, you can either strangle him here or before he makes it to the door into the next room, 5 down, 1 to go. Hide his body in the bathroom where the other guy is. Go back outside and wait for the final sixth gang member to turn his back to you, quickly strangle him with the Fiber Wire and hide his body in the same place as the other two, The Gator Gang is finished…or is it, first we’ve got to eliminate the ring leader Captain Skip Muldoon to call this a successful hit. Another way you can do this altogether is by poisoning the gang’s burgers and drinks in the next room, but seeing as you have so little poison and it draws a lot of attention I wouldn’t recommend it, it is doable however. Go back into the bathroom and get the cake, bring it into Muldoon’s private room just ahead through the single door past the gang’s rec. room. Place it on the table and eventually the plump Muldoon will sander in to have a taste, wait for him to drop from the poison then drag him into his bedroom on the left, Skip Muldoon and The Gator Gang are now officially finished. Open the door to the safe and retrieve the pictures, leave the way you came via the stairs. Now this next part is up to you, you can simply escape in disguise by going back down to the 3rd deck and using the first set of single steps on the right side of the map then extract easy out to the rescue boat with no problem. Or if you want to escape with your suit go all the way back to the 1st deck where you sedated the guard and get your suit back then proceed the same way as you would escape in disguise to the 3rd deck where the stairs are. Using the map sneak your way past the many guards and workers present here down to the stairs and escape in the rescue boat. If you want you can simply run past them to the boat to extract, you’ll be spotted but as long as you get there quickly it won’t affect your ranking, good for you, another Silent Assassin rank. ------------------------------ ------------------------------ =============================================================================== Till Death Do Us Part =============================================================================== What a beautiful day for a wedding. Every detail to Margaux LeBlanc’s wedding has been planned to perfection. The married couple is set to inherit a wealthy fortune from Margaux’s father who’s now become somewhat of a reclusive. He moves about the grounds in a daze with nothing else to do but weep for his dead brother and feed the gators that roam the surrounding waters. Good things never seem to last… Objectives: - Kill the Groom - Kill the Bride’s Father - Ensure the Bride’s Safety - Escape Weapons to Bring: - W2000 Sniper The W2000 Sniper is strictly for the ‘rather dramatic’ alternate kill so forgo bringing it along if you intend to follow normally. This is a fairly simple mission that’s not too difficult, follow the boardwalk until you reach a gap between two buildings, walk down here and just to the left you’ll see a party guest who’s had a bit too much to drink, follow him. Eventually he will pass out in the abandoned building, when he does grab his clothes and party invitation off him, now head over to the party. Proceed past the dance floor and to the front door of the mansion, head around the stairs to the right and you’ll see a door that says ‘private’, when no one is watching pick the lock and quickly move inside, if you keep getting caught while lock picking then wait until the Groom Buddy Muldoon passes through and quickly move inside before the door shuts. Move into the room on the right, if the priest isn’t already in here then hide in cupboard right beside the grandfather clock, when he does enter or if he’s already inside sneak up behind him and sedate the priest with the Syringe Sedative. Take his clothes and boat key then stash him in the cupboard next to the grandfather clock, with the priest now out of the picture the ceremony will not take place. Go back out the door then through the corridor to the left, here you should see a spiral staircase, when the guard isn’t watching quickly run up the both sets of stairs and into the attic. Head over to the north wall (the one opposite you) and you’ll find two large bolts sticking out of the floor, place a RU-AP Mine on the left one not the right one. Go back down the way you came and through the kitchen door in front of you then take a left out into the hall, move through the double doors on the right. The mine you placed upstairs is connected to the chandelier just above the piano, the Groom target Buddy Muldoon will eventually enter and begin trying to play the piano, detonate the mine to kill Buddy for an easy accidental kill. Alternate kill (Buddy Muldoon)- Enter the kitchen when no one’s looking and quickly poison the cake with the Syringe Poison, hide in the closet. Eventually Buddy will enter and sample some whipped cream off the cake, he’ll drop dead just before he leaves through the door, before the waiter comes back hide Buddy’s body in the nearby container. Head through the double doors at the back, you’ll now be back outside; over to the far left you should see a ‘restricted area’ sign. The priest outfit disguise will grant you access so no worries, follow the boardwalk around to the left. You’re next target John LeBlanc, Margaux’s father, otherwise known as ‘Pappy’ will either be over by the gravesite or feeding the alligators with his bucket, if he is over by the gravesite then approach and wait until he is standing over the open grave and push him down into the hole to his death. Now if he is feeding the alligators then wait until the guard in the house through the window leaves his chair, as soon as the second guard next to Muldoon turns his back to leave push LeBlanc into the swamp, the gators will have a feeding frenzy on LeBlanc as they tear him apart in the water…that’s a hell of a way to go. If you screw up the timing then just push LeBlanc in while the second guard leans on the rail, he’ll be a little suspicious of the noise but won’t know what happened. You can also sneak up behind LeBlanc and push him into the shallow grave of his brother when he visits his gravesite; it’s a little easier than pushing him over the rail. Alternate kill (John LeBlanc)- If you miss out on killing LeBlanc in the gravesite or swamp then steal a guard’s uniform, I would suggest sedating the guard in the back of the mansion outside on the patio then hiding his body in the container to the far left by the greenhouse. Eventually ‘Pappy’ LeBlanc will go upstairs into his private room and start watching TV, when he does sneak up behind him and strangle him with the Fiber Wire then hide his body in the nearby cupboard. You’ll need the guards clothes if you use this method due to the many guards upstairs protecting LeBlanc. Once again you have two options to escape, use the priests disguise (with the boat key) and take the boat at the east end of the map in the shack or head back through the mansion to the abandoned building and reclaim you’re suit where you stole the drunks guest clothes and escape with the boat at your starting position. Well done, another Silent Assassin rank. Alternate kill (Buddy Muldoon)- This kill is strictly for theatrics, you’ll need the W2000 Sniper, firstly sedate the guard at the back of the mansion outside on the patio and take his clothes then hide his body in the nearby container. Make your way into the greenhouse just to the left side of the mansion, climb up the right staircase and you’ll notice an opening at the top here, this is our sniping point. Get the W2000 Sniper from the Rifle Case and wait here until the wedding ceremony starts, and don’t worry about the guards below they can’t see you. Eventually when the ceremony starts aim from this vantage point to the wedding pavilion at Buddy, just before the priest announces them man and wife assassinate Muldoon and quickly disassemble the W2000 Sniper placing it back in the Rifle Case. Retreat down the staircase and leave the greenhouse, pretty dramatic huh. This next part is the same kill but using a different method- Sedate the waiter in the kitchen of the mansion who goes inside the cupboard and get his disguise, hide his body in the container. Eventually the priest will start the wedding by ringing the bell in front of the mansion; if you get sick of waiting you can always ring it yourself and get back to the kitchen quickly. Now as everyone congregates near the wedding pavilion and the ceremony gets underway get out the W2000 Sniper from where you are in the cupboard and crouch down, open the cupboard door and aim out the window in the kitchen, before the priest announces them man and wife zoom in and assassinate Buddy on the pavilion, quickly put away the W2000 Sniper and put your party guest disguise back then get the hell out of the kitchen as the guards scurry about around the premises. Alternate kill (John LeBlanc)- When your up in the attic planting the RU-AP Mine there’s an optional yellow interest point by itself next to the utility box, plant the mine here on the bolt sticking out of the floor. After LeBlanc finishes outside and comes back into the mansion he’ll head up the steps near the front door, the mine is connected to the chandelier so when he begins his climb up the steps detonate the mine and the chandelier will fall and kill ‘Pappy’ LeBlanc for an accidental kill. Alternate kill (John LeBlanc)- For this method you’ll need the W2000 Sniper, use the same method that got you upstairs in the greenhouse where you shoot Buddy for the alternate kill. After LeBlanc goes out to the gravesite and is standing over the open grave creep outside onto the greenhouse and snipe him with the W2000 Sniper, if you get a good enough shot he may fall right into the grave. Do not creep out prematurely though because the guards on the 2nd floor of the mansion outside will spot you and if you are too soon LeBlanc himself will see you. ------------------------------ ------------------------------ =============================================================================== A House of Cards =============================================================================== Spend an evening in Vegas at the Shamal Hotel, unparalleled in its scope and expense. But tonight there’s more to lose then just your money. Behind closed doors is a transaction between white supremacist, Hendrik Schmutz and Mohammed bin Faisal Al-Khalifa, a man of luxury and self indulgence. Intercept the package and take out Schmutz, the Sheikh, and his personal scientist. The stakes couldn’t be higher… Objectives: - Kill Sheikh Al-Khalifa - Kill the Scientist - Kill Hendrik Schmutz - Escape - Steal Diamonds Weapons to Bring: - W2000 Sniper Bringing the W2000 Sniper along is mandatory for following normally without the alternate kills so make sure to upgrade it the best you can with the money available, this mission is by far my favorite in the game, Io-Interactive did a beautiful job creating it. Okay to start move forward into the Shamal Hotel and Casino, you’ll be greeted by one of the very beautiful girls at the front, move around to the right and to the reception in the lobby. Speak to the girl to get the key to your room, the next two kills are all about timing, remember that because you’ll have to be quick. Head up the stairs and into the elevator on the left, climb the hatch and put down your Rifle Suitcase for now, almost right away you should notice the Sheikh’s Scientist Tariq Abdul Lateef arrive in his limo via the split screen. Watch the map and eventually he will walk inside the elevator, wait until the doors close then pull Lateef up and strangle him with the Fiber Wire, the Sheikh’s Scientist is done for. Grab the room key off Lateef then jump down the hatch and grab the Diamond briefcase ‘full of untraceable blood diamonds’, climb back up the hatch and leave the briefcase here for now. Alternate kill (Tariq Abdul Lateef)- On the 7th floor activate the fire alarm, then quickly proceed out onto the two balconies on the opposite side of the elevators, there is metal fencing here covering some decorative lights, climb up it onto the ledge and start heading left. When you come to the open window climb through head around to the long hallway closest to Lateef in 803, activate the fire alarm on the floor then quickly run down the hallway to Lateef’s room, when the last guard runs through the door head inside before the door closes, now hide inside the closet in the bedroom. After things die down Lateef will return to his room, when he enters the bedroom and turns around sneak up behind him and strangle him with the Fiber Wire or poison him with the Syringe Poison then drag his body into the bathroom. Next head out the opposite door to the bathroom and sneak up behind the guard and sedate him, hide his body in the bathroom as well and grab the Diamond briefcase. To leave head out onto the balcony and jump to the room across from you, wait until the guest goes to the bathroom then quickly run through the room and out the door back into the corridor. Alternate kill (Tariq Abdul Lateef)- You’ll need the W2000 Sniper for this kill, do the same thing in the alternate kill above to get up to the 8th floor, but this time after you go through the window wait until the lone guest in 807 leaves his room then go through the window and shimmy across to 805’s balcony. Quickly get out your W2000 Sniper from the Rifle Case and crouch down, aim for Lateef’s window in the bedroom then as he stops in front of the window zoom in and pop him in the head for a clean kill. Put your W2000 back in the Rifle Case and proceed out 805 into the corridor, easy, but you’ll have to go retrieve the Diamond briefcase from his room if you haven’t gotten it yet. Starting where we left off hop back into the elevator then take it down to the lobby, head down the steps to the left and around down some more steps into the casino, move through the doors just to the right of the slot machines, taking this route will put you out of view of the cameras. Move down the corridor and into the men’s bathroom just to the right; wait here for Schmutz to enter. Now you’ll only get two maybe three cracks at this before your first target white supremacist Hendrik Schmutz will head up to his room in the elevator so you’ll have to be quick. When he enters to relieve himself make sure no one is watching then sneak up behind him in the stall and strangle him with the Fiber Wire, quickly move his body deeper into the stall then close the door. You may get lucky and be able to close it without moving him, it all depends on how he lands after you strangle him, Schmutz has been eliminated, just one target left. Alternate kill (Hendrik Schmutz)- Using the same method that you took out the Scientist with head up the stairs in the lobby and get into the elevator on the right, climb up the hatch and wait. Eventually Schmutz will want to head up to his suite, when he gets in the elevator wait until the doors close then get out your Fiber Wire and strangle Schmutz for an easy kill. Alternate kill (Hendrik Schmutz)- Head up to the 7th floor and activate the fire alarm closest to your room, quickly run back inside your room onto the balcony and hop over the right railing. Creep across the narrow ledge here onto the next balcony, do the same for this balcony over the right rail. After you’ve crossed the second ledge climb over the balcony rail then proceed over to the next rail and you’ll leap across to the next balcony, this is Schmutz’s room. Go into the bedroom to the right and hide in one of the closets. After awhile Schmutz will come up to his suite and walk around a bit, wait until he enters the bedroom then sneak up behind him and take him out with either the Fiber Wire or Syringe Poison, your choice. Alternately you can push Schmutz over the rail when he goes out onto the balcony for an accidental kill, but you’re more than likely to be seen so I wouldn’t recommend it. Alternate kill (Hendrik Schmutz)- For this method you’ll need the W2000 Sniper, get out your W2000 Sniper from the Rifle Case in your room on the 7th floor and wait until Schmutz goes into his room on the same floor then head out onto the balcony and crouch down, zoom in and snipe him either when he’s on the balcony or through the window in his suite. I would advise killing him through the window as someone may see his body if you take him out on the balcony, during this kill just be sure to watch the bellhop on the balcony next to yours having a smoke. Advance back the way you came into the lobby, head up the stairs and take the left elevator up to the 7th floor, while you’re waiting climb the hatch and retrieve the Rifle Suitcase then jump back down, be careful not to sustain any damage when jumping from the hatch back into the elevators, it happens sometimes. When you arrive at the 7th floor move around to the right following the corridor to the left then into your suite room 701 on the right, if you need help finding your room then consult the map. Move over near the balcony in your room and get out the W2000 Sniper, go through the balcony doors and drop your W2000 Sniper here on the balcony, this gets us ready for the hit on the Sheikh. Leave the room and go back to elevator, take it up the 8th floor and exit the elevator around to the right. Down the corridor next to the ‘staff only’ door there is a fire alarm, make sure no one is looking then pull it down, hide by the wall just to the right of the long hallway as the guards from room 803 disperse. Check the map and make sure there all out of the room, if the coast is clear quickly run down the long hallway and to the right following the corridor to the Scientist room, 803. Use the keycard on the door and head inside, go through the single door near the balcony into the bedroom and redial the Sheikh using the cell phone on the table, you’ll know it’s worked when you get a split screen of the Sheikh receiving the call, if you don’t get it wait until the Sheikh is in his lounge after he arrives in his limo. Promptly leave the room and run your way back to the elevator and take it down to the 7th floor, head around the right back through the hallway and into your room on the right. Pickup the W2000 Sniper on the balcony and climb over the right side of the balcony rail, from here you’ll take out Sheikh Al-Khalifa down below at the exit. Eventually the Sheikh will walk through and stop to talk to who he thinks is Tariq Abdul Lateef, zoom in and assassinate Mohammed bin Faisal Al-Khalifa to eliminate your final target. Quickly climb back over the rail and head back into your apartment, now seeing as 47 can’t carry two briefcases at the same time you’ll have to place the W2000 Sniper in the ICA point in your room, if you want before you leave grab the TMP out of the box if you haven’t unlocked it yet. Make your way to the left elevator on the floor and go back down to the lobby, while you descend climb up the hatch and grab the Diamond briefcase then jump back down to complete your optional objective. Head down the stairs and back down into the casino, to the far left you’ll see an exit, walk through it then escape out the door, well done, Silent Assassin rank. Alternate kill (Sheikh Al-Khalifa)- For this to work you’ll need to get into Schmutz’s room for the DNA briefcase. Take the DNA briefcase and head down to the lounge in the casino where the Sheikh is, you don’t really need Schmutz’s clothes as the Sheikh doesn’t know what he looks like but for the sake of the mission if you want be my guest. Be sure to have no guns on you or hide them in the briefcase as you’ll be searched before you enter the lounge. Head over to the Sheikh’s private lounge, after the cutscene the courier will be on his way, it takes awhile but eventually he will show up and take the briefcase to the Scientist on the 8th floor, again this will take some time. After he gets the DNA briefcase he will call the Sheikh’s mobile phone, Sheikh Al-Khalifa will then move to the back of the lounge and through a door, follow him. Walk through the door with the Sheikh and a guard will run over and deny you access, walk back into the lounge as he stares for awhile, when he walks back to his post quickly move through the door. Now head up the stairs to the door and hide behind the right hand corner of the exit door, when the Sheikh returns from his phone call wait until he gets to the top of the stairs then sneak up behind him and push him down the steps. Alternate kill (Sheikh Al-Khalifa)- Do the exact same thing you would normally to take out the Sheikh with the W2000 Sniper except instead of using the rifle place an RU-AP Mine outside where the Sheikh exits the door. To do so sedate the guard who goes to the bathroom in the casino and take his disguise, then move through the lounge to the exit and place the mine, detonate the RU-AP Mine as Sheikh Al-Khalifa walks through to blow his ass to kingdom come. Just note you’ll have to quickly get all the way back down to the casino bar otherwise the mine won’t detonate because it’s out of range, take the same route to get out of the room from Lateefs Alternate kill above. Remember, you’ll have to be quick to catch him. ------------------------------ ------------------------------ =============================================================================== A Dance with the Devil =============================================================================== With the morning sunrise comes 47’s last mission with the Agency. Diana has prepared to split the agencies resources with 47 as they end contact with one another. Enter into a world of extremes where heaven and hell meet at a massive tower block on the edge of Las Vegas. Accomplish your objectives but watch out for enemy assassins amongst the parties’ lavish guests. “At this point any mission could be a setup…” Objectives: - Kill Anthony Martinez - Kill Vaana Ketlyn - Retrieve Information - Escape Weapons to Bring: - W2000 Sniper Once again the W2000 Sniper is for the alternate kill so don’t bother taking it along if you plan on following normally. From your starting position walk into the building through the sliding glass door, you’ll be seen on camera but its unavoidable so don’t worry about it. Talk to the guard at the desk, after the cutscene he’ll wander into the back, quietly follow behind him then when he walks through the last door sneak up on him and sedate him with the Syringe Sedative, steal his clothes but leave the weapon. Make your way back outside the building and into the guard shack to the far right, as the guard standing up turns his back steal the security tape. Head down into the garage past the two elevators to the prop van on the east side of the parking garage, near the back is a heavens guest outfit for you to blend in at the party, when the patrolling guard turns away quickly put it on. Now go over to the second elevator on the right, the guard will search you, afterwards walk into the elevator and head up to the top floor. As you arrive move forward through the double doors and into the heaven party, remind you of something? Well to the older readers the party may remind you of a movie you might have seen called Eyes Wide Shut, it’s not exactly alike but very similar, probably where Io- Interactive got the idea from. Anyways after going through the double doors move forward near the stage, if you want you can talk to the bartender to the left, if not then walk through the doors on the right, follow that around to the left and go through the doors here. From here we’ll take out our first target, former good guy turned bad, Anthony Martinez. Head into the bathroom and hide inside the stall behind the right side of the door, eventually you’ll see a guy with a horned, smiling devil mask, this is Martinez, he’ll wander into the stall to relieve himself. Close the door then sneak up behind him and strangle him with the Fiber Wire, the former CIA Agents days are over. Grab his clothes off him and you may as well take the Rifle Suitcase, when the coast is clear in the bathroom head back into the room you came from. Alternate kill (Anthony Martinez)- When you go up to the top floor in the elevator climb up the hatch and wait here for Martinez to enter, it will take some time but eventually he’ll walk in and take the elevator down to the garage. Pull him up with the Fiber Wire and strangle him, collect his clothes and Rifle Suitcase. Move past the steps and through the doors in front of you, with the disguise the guard will give you no trouble, go down the hallway and into the room at the end. Head over to the laptop at the desk to retrieve the information about your other targets, to the right here by the desk there is also a Dragunov, just pointing this out. Now before the girl on stage Eve enters get behind the right side of the door into the room, soon enough she’ll enter and pause near the door, wait for the doors to close then sneak up behind Eve and strangle her with the Fiber Wire, or you can use the Syringe poison, it doesn’t matter, hide Eve’s body to the right of the door out of sight. Alternate kill (Eve)- For this method you’ll need the W2000 Sniper, after you’ve taken out Martinez and have his disguise head through the narrow corridor at the side of the stage to a ladder, climb up it and get your W2000 Sniper out, when Eve is on stage singing quickly zoom in and take her out. Promptly put the W2000 Sniper back in the Rifle Case and climb back down the ladder before the lone guard patrolling up here spots you. If you get caught by the guard up here before the kill then sneak up behind him and sedate him, stash his body in the container nearby. There is also an alternate way to get up top for the shot on Eve, climb up the elevator hatch and leap over the rail. Check and make sure the guards aren’t looking then begin shimmying across the ledge, when you reach the end climb through the window and setup your shot, I wouldn’t advise the way however, the many guards present below make this very difficult to pull off, but again it is doable. With Eve dead it’s time to go after your final two targets in the basement, Vaana Ketlyn and now Maynard John. Grab the Rifle Suitcase and head back into the elevator then take it down to the garage, on your way down climb up the hatch and wait until the elevator stops. You should now notice an opening at the top here, climb through it and onto the next elevator, jump down and proceed down to the basement. Make your way through the door and into the hell party, you can see why they call this the hell portion of the party. Walk through the gathering past the bar around the corner to the right, if you see a guy in a red devil mask just ignore him and don’t approach him yet, this is Maynard, we’ll leave him for last. Also if by chance you spot Vaana walking around keep moving and don’t stop and talk with her, unless you want the alternate kill on her that is. Continue down the corridor through the door with the two guards on either side, now over in the corner is the command console, walk over to it and if no one is looking rig the pyrotechnics. Make your way back over to the stairs at the top of the dance floor, eventually when the next pyrotechnics show begins watch the most gruesome death of Vaana Ketlyn as she’s burned alive then falls into the water and eaten by sharks. Alternate kill (Vaana Ketlyn)- When Vaana is walking around the party approach her and she will want you to go to someplace ‘more private’. She will lead you into a back room just the two of you, as soon as the door closes in the private room you enter quickly with her back turned strangle Vaana with the Fiber Wire for the kill, drag her body deeper into the room then leave. Make sure to be quick and strangle her as soon as the door closes with her back turned because she will demand you take off the mask and reveal yourself to her, obviously giving you away. Now head over to Maynard by the bar, after the cutscene he’ll lead you to the sound proof ‘torture chamber’. As he runs off be fast and open up the Rifle Suitcase, duck behind the shelf to the left, as it falls apart move to the next one. Now if you’re a good enough shot you can aim through the metal fencing and shoot him in the head, if not just keep moving behind the shelves for cover. One by one the metal gates blocking your way will open, run through them as they open until you reach the central area where he is, move in and take Maynard John down with the FN-2000, be as accurate as you can with your shooting, if you can pull it off a straight shot to the head would be perfect. An alternate method without using a weapon would be waiting until you reach the central area then poisoning Maynard with the Syringe Poison but you’re likely to get all shot up as you run around him waiting for the right opportunity, drag Maynard’s body behind the shelf or table depending on where you killed him. With Maynard dead what’s left of the Agency appears to be safe…for now. If you want to just get this long level over with and escape in disguise then head back up to the garage in the elevator and look for the rather out of place blue van for your escape, consult the map if you have difficulty finding it, you can also take the FN-2000 in the Rifle Suitcase with you if you want, I wouldn’t, but if you’ve yet to unlock the weapon then go ahead, same goes for the Dragunov on the top floor. To escape with your suit head all the way back to the building at the start of the level and reclaim your suit, there is a door in the corner of the building to the right of the desk. Head through it then down the steps and hide in the closet, check the map and if the coast is clear move out into the garage, continue left past the cars and up the steps then sneak your way past the lone guard here and into the van for your escape, you’ll have to time the guards patrols to get this right. Or if you want after heading down the steps you can just make a run for the van, you’ll be spotted but as long as you make it to the van quickly for escape it won’t affect your ranking, very nice, Silent Assassin rank. ------------------------------ ------------------------------ =============================================================================== Amendment XXV =============================================================================== A nation’s worst fear is realized. The President will be assassinated upon his return from Los Angeles. Take on the White House as you protect the President from clone assassin Mark Parchezzi III, more commonly known as the Albino. The Vice President has been in league with the Franchise in hopes of taking the Presidents place. Take every step in this historical building with extreme caution… Objectives: - Kill Mark Parchezzi - Kill the Vice President - Escape Weapons to Bring: - W2000 Sniper To follow the mission normally without the alternate kill it will be mandatory to take the W2000 Sniper along so make sure it’s fully upgraded and you don’t forget to bring it along. Head through the door in front of you and to your left, place the Rifle Case on the belt and proceed into the bathroom to the left, if you bought the Foil Padded Suitcase in the misc. upgrades then the rifle will not be detected, if you didn’t well you’ll have to start over and buy it. Close the bathroom door and drop an RU-AP Mine by the toilet, now open the door and hide behind it, the marine standing next to the metal detector should notice the mine and wander in, oh and I might as well mention be sure to put the Rifle Case down before every takeout. When he does quickly close the door then sedate him with the Syringe Sedative, take his uniform and go through the metal detector, if you find the marine not taking the bait then you probably misplaced the mine, be sure you place it in view to the right of the toilet. Walk through the double doors in front of you then into the single door on the left, grab the main building keycard on the far table in front of you and steal the videotape. Head back out the door and to the left through both sets of double doors, go down the long hallway past the patrolling marine and use the keycard on the doors at the end. Follow the corridor around to the right up the stairs and to the left through the single door, immediately go right through the doors here across the marble checkered floor to the red carpet. Pick the lock on the far door to the right of the picture; just be sure no one is watching. Go inside and to the right through the doors, Stewart should be in here walking around, wait until he goes for the door then quickly sneak up behind him and strangle him with the Fiber Wire, congratulations on the biggest hit in the Hitman series thus far, Vice President of the United States Daniel Morris is dead. But don’t waste any time, quickly drag his body into the next room and dump him in the container by the piano, you’ll have to be quick as the First Lady will eventually wander in and see you. Alternate kill (Daniel Morris)- The trick to this kill is making sure the dog isn’t with Morris when he goes for his walk, instead of going inside the rooms ahead to kill the Vice President wait outside until he and the First Lady emerge. As soon as their through quickly shut the door so that the dog is trapped in the room, you may have to do it a few times before you get it. Now follow Morris through the doors then into the single door below the stairs, there are two sets of stairs here, one small then a longer flight, your going to push Morris down the longer flight of stairs for the kill. Complicating things are the patrolling guards, you may have to wait a few times for the right opportunity or you can try and distract the guards by running around them delaying their route. Regardless when you get the opportunity push Morris down the steps for an accidental kill, wait until he’s gone down a little before the push, when his body gets to the end of the stairs you’ll know if it worked, remember, there’s a delay on stair pushing. While this is doable it’s very difficult to pull off so I wouldn’t recommend it for the inexperienced. Alternate kill (Daniel Morris)- For this method you’ll need the W2000 Sniper, before you begin sedate the secret service agent outside the west wing first, hiding his body behind the second bush in the far corner. Now get up to the 2nd floor of the main building, on the far left of the map you’ll see a yellow interest point, go there then out the open window, hide to the left of the balcony as you wait for Morris. Now following Morris via the map wait until he gets outside to walk the dog then get out your W2000 Sniper and assassinate him, take out the dog as well. Afterwards hide Daniel Morris’ body in the bushes with the agent. Go back out of the rooms then to the left through the doors, continue into the single door at the bottom of the stairs and down the both flights of stairs. Follow the corridor through the doors until your outside, go forward a bit and wait here by the pillars, after awhile a lone secret service agent will walk by you. Wait until he comes back and stops on his patrol then just as you would in the Alternate kill above sneak up behind him and sedate him with the Syringe Sedative, drag him over to the corner of the garden behind the second bush, make sure he’s out of sight then take his clothes and west wing keycard. Near the door where you came outside you should see a mesh fence with vines growing up it, climb up here with the Rifle Case and run down the roof to the other end behind the white blocks. If the coast is clear and there’s no secret service agent relieving himself in the far corner by the door then get the W2000 Sniper out and drop it here behind the first block, we do this to be ready for Parchezzi coming up. Go through the nearby door on the roof here and head down the stairs on the floor, make your way through the workstations to the Oval Office, after the cutscene with Parchezzi he will shoot 47 and the alarms will be activated. Quickly run after him heading back up to the 2nd floor, if you need help getting there consult the map to maneuver your way through the workstations. When you get to the roof run to your W2000 Sniper and pick it up, crouch down and go into first person view, now quickly get up then zoom in and assassinate Mark Parchezzi III, for the inexperienced you may get hit a few times if you’re not quick enough, if so wait until he reloads for the shot. Alternate kill (Mark Parchezzi III)- For this method you won’t need the W2000 Sniper, when you climb up onto the roof instead of heading all the way down to the other side simply drop an RU-AP Mine on the ground by the far rail and wooden stack. There is in fact a leaf poking through the wall, it serves as a good marker point of where to drop the mine, once everything goes down with Parchezzi head back through the 1st floor and into the garden area outside where everyone is running around. Wait until Parchezzi gets to the end of the roof then when he stops and is in position detonate the mine to kill Mark Parchezzi III. While this kill is much simpler than using the W2000 Sniper, I prefer to take out Parchezzi with the rifle. With the President of the United States Tom Stewart now safe put the W2000 Sniper back in the Rifle Case and escape, to do so head down the roof and hop over or climb down the mesh vine fence then proceed back the way you came to the start of the level reacquiring your suit in the bathroom on the way out. Congratulations, you just pulled off the greatest assassination in US history. ------------------------------ ------------------------------ =============================================================================== Requiem =============================================================================== The dramatic conclusion to Hitman: Blood Money. 47 has been taken down by The Franchise who have now completely eradicated the Agency. Alexander Leland Cayne has come to witness his adversary’s funeral. All hope seems lost. Little does Cayne know, he’s been deceived. Time for one final showdown… Objectives: - Leave no witnesses Weapons to Bring: - None Selectable One of the main misconceptions by most in this final level is that 47 dies here at the end, I really can’t believe a gamer could be this stupid and think that after Diana mixes the antidote with her lipstick and kisses him then leaves 47’s Silverballers on his chest they think he just dies…ridiculous! Get ready for the real ending to Blood Money; this is perhaps one of the greatest ending levels in gaming history, I tip my hat once again to Io-Interactive on such a great game. Alright now as soon as the credits begin to role move the ‘Left Thumbstick’ up and down and 47’s heart will start to beat once again, now you have a few options before resurrecting yourself. You can wait until the priest comes over then get up and use him as a human shield or you can simply get up firing off a few rounds in the process killing the sitting FBI agent. As soon as you’re resurrected if you don’t have the priest as cover then head over to the left firing off a few shots and crouch down behind the small protruding structure on the floor. Reload your Silverballers and wait for the agents to come to you, from here you can pop up and kill them one by one, remember those headshots. When there are only a few agents left still shooting at you from a distance then spring out behind cover and take the rest out, if the priest is still here be sure to kill him as well, remember, no witnesses. Pickup the MP7 and SLP.40 collecting as much ammo as you can then proceed out the open glass wall opposite you. Run around the church through the field to the path; continue down the path and eventually you’ll run into Cayne at his limo in his wheelchair, pump this manipulative, power hungry, little bureaucrat full of lead to put an end to Alexander Leland Cayne’s tragic existence. Finally shoot the reporter Rick Henderson, he knew far too much to stay alive, if the priest is here too then kill him at the gate as well. There is also a stash of melee weapons in a tomb on the southwest side on the church grounds, just look for the yellow interest point on the map, to get there simply avoid the gunfight and sprint there. You can then come out every so often and take out agents; there is no way to do this thing stealthy. The game will end with 47 leaving the church graveyard and the Diana cutscene, now you may be a little confused by the ending as 47 is at an Asian brothel and swaggers behind the curtain with the owner of the establishment as the game ends. Well there really is no mystery, they leave it up to your imagination as to what it means, 47 could simply be there for another job or it could be something more, like a chance for 47 to hideout for awhile while things cool down, maybe even go into work for himself. Regardless I wouldn’t read much into it; each Hitman game stands on its own so I highly doubt it will have something to do with the plot of the 5th game. Anyways congratulations on completing Hitman: Blood Money, it was damn good wasn’t it. ------------------------------ ------------------------------ $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ 4- Final Thoughts $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ Truly a masterpiece, one of the best games on the market, certainly the best out of the Hitman series thus far. Like I said though this game isn’t for everyone, you have to be patient and willing to learn from your mistakes before becoming really good at it, so if you’re simply into shooters and RPG’s then this game probably isn’t for you. On the other hand if you enjoy strategy type games like the brilliant Commandos series for instance then this game is right up your alley. My take on the game is probably pretty much the same as most other hardcore Hitman fans, it was great, there’s really nothing more to say, so instead of boring you with a long rant about how good this game is let me just say that I’m very picky with my games, I don’t just buy ‘what’s popular’. I purchase what I feel are the cream of the crop in the gaming industry today, so you can understand why I picked up Hitman: Blood Money. Newcomers may be a bit confused with the story at first, once you break it down and look at everything after it’s all said and done its fairly simple, if you still find yourself perplexed then read the story and character portion of the walkthrough, it should fill in the gaps in the plot for you. To the hardcore Hitman fans you’ll be happy to know that they’ve already begun laying the groundwork for the sequel to Blood Money, it should be due out in a year or so, just like yourselves I’ll be looking forward to it, God knows what they’ll do with the character next. Also if you haven’t heard yet a Hitman movie is being released by 20th Century Fox, despite the controversy already surrounding it I’m hoping it does well and Timothy Olyphant call pull off playing the infamous Agent 47 and spans several sequels. To all the naysayers let me just say that it’s a great character and a great story, it deserves a shot at the box office. Well thanks for coming along for the ride, I hope I helped and got you through the game in one piece. From one assassin to another I salute 47 and everybody at Io-Interactive for creating this great game and of course Eidos Interactive for putting it out. Jackal here, signing off… $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ 5- Cheats, Hints, and Achievements $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ =============================================================================== Cheats =============================================================================== Infinite Saves on Normal and Expert: During a mission when saving a game a message box will appear telling you it’s saving your game. Press Start before the ‘Save Complete’ text appears and it will not count towards your save limit. Infinite Money: You can replay any mission you’ve already beaten, and if you earn more money (by not leaving witnesses, low notoriety, etc.), the difference is added to your account balance (e.g. if you made $400,000 the first time and $500,000 the second time, then $100,000 is added to your balance). However there is a glitch in the game that will let you add this difference to your account as many times as you want. First complete a mission as poorly as possible, earning as little money as you can. Then save the game and go back to that mission. This time earning as much money as you can, making sure you create a save point immediately before escaping the mission. After you escape the mission review screens will show your new account balance. You can press the ‘B’ button to return to the first of these screens and then press the ‘Y’ button to replay the mission. A warning message pops up alerting you that your progress will be lost; however it turns out that you’re save points and account balance are NOT reset. As soon as the mission restarts, you can load the save point you created earlier and escape the level again. Your account balance will again be increased by the difference you earned. You can repeat this process as many times as you wish. Intel at no cost: Purchase all the Intel when a mission starts. Make a note of it, then pause the game and choose to restart the mission. You will have your original starting money, and the Intel will now be available for purchase again even though you now know what it contains. =============================================================================== Hints =============================================================================== Alternate Ending Sequence: In the last stage “Requiem”, Diana will give you the antidote to the Syringe Death Serum. If you just watch and not use the ‘Left Thumbstick’ to revive yourself the game will end and 47 will die. Alternate Main Menu: As you progress through the game killing various targets on the main menu you’ll begin to notice that the targets you have assassinated are in attendance at your funeral. After you have beaten the game you will change the main menu screen to a dead 47 lying on an altar. Newspaper Headlines: After completing a mission the newspaper information varies depending on how you did. If you did poorly the paper will say so in the paragraph. If you shoot very little and use mostly hand to hand it will say that there is not enough information to make a ranked description of you. High accuracy states you are a well trained marksmen. Try doing the missions differently to see the different headlines. Hidden “Sushi Chef” rank: In any mission use the knife to kill lots of people. Note: You can easily accomplish this on the “You Better Watch Out…” mission. Look in the levels respective kitchen to find a knife in the missions. Dancing 47: Within the mission entitled “The Murder of Crows”, you will notice that there are three separate bars in the area- The Blues Bar, Rock Bar and Salsa Bar. You can acquire outfits that correspond with the particular bar, just look for the patrons who go into the back alley of each bar. Once you have selected the appropriate costume for your bar of choice enter the bar and position 47 to stand amongst the other dancers on the dance floor and then leave the controller alone. After a few minutes 47 will start to dance with everyone else. Hidden Rat Club: In “Curtains Down” there is a room in the basement on the west side where there are three rats. Occasionally, a worker will come in and try to kill them with a nailgun. Sedate him and take the nailgun, if you kill all three rats a keycard entitled RATCLUB KEYCARD will appear on one of the tables on the west side of the room. If you take the stairs near the target’s dressing room to the second floor and use it on the first door to the left it will open a storage room with what appears to be a cell. On the other side there are a bunch of rats having a party and doing different things like boxing and playing cards. License Plates: Look at the license plates of the cars on different levels. On “A New Life” in the suburbs all the license plates read BADBLOD (Bad Blood). On “A House of Cards” outside the casino the license plates of the limos reads 1LM0N3Y. =============================================================================== Achievements =============================================================================== Xbox 360 Achievements- - 1st mission complete (25) “Death of a Showman” completed on any difficulty. - Rookie mode complete (25) Completed Rookie difficulty. - Normal mode complete (50) Completed Normal difficulty. - Expert mode complete (75) Completed Expert difficulty. - Professional mode complete (150) Completed Professional difficulty. - 5 Normal Silent Assassins (25) 5 Silent Assassin ratings awarded on the Normal difficulty. - 5 Expert Silent Assassins (50) 5 Silent Assassin ratings awarded on the Expert difficulty. - 5 Professional Silent Assassins (100) 5 Silent Assassins ratings awarded on the Expert difficulty. - Tier 2 Kruger Schmidt (5) Tier 2 of the Kruger Schmidt upgrade shop unlocked. - Tier 3 Kruger Schmidt (15) Tier 3 of the Kruger Schmidt upgrade shop unlocked. - Tier 4 Kruger Schmidt (20) Tier 4 of the Kruger Schmidt upgrade shop unlocked. - Fully Customized Silverballers (25) All custom Silverballer components purchased. - Fully Customized SP12 Shotgun (25) All custom Shotgun components purchased. - Fully Customized SMG Tactical (25) All custom SMG Tactical components purchased. - Fully Customized M4 (25) All custom M4 components purchased. - Fully Customized W2000 Sniper (25) All custom W2000 components purchased. - All firearms collected (100) All firearms collected and displayed in Hideout. - Silent Assassin (25) A Silent Assassin rating has been awarded. - Accidents do happen (20) A successful accident kill has been performed. - High Roller (50) $5,000,000 have been accumulated. - Redemption (50) You can’t keep a good man down. - 47 kills in a mission (20) A mission has been completed with precisely 47 kills. - Notorious (20) 47 is the world’s most wanted man. - Special Rating (50) A Special Rating has been awarded. $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ 6- Legal Stuff and Credits $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ Hitman: Blood Money © 2006 IO Interactive A/S.
