For this revision I finally played through the PlayStation 3 version during
which I made substantial format tweaks, cleaned up some small stuff, and made
some changes to the following mission:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

On the PC version I originally played this game on a Dell Optiplex GX270 (at
2.4Ghz) with 1GB of RAM and on Windows XP Professional with an NVidia GeForce
6200 video card and the built-in SoundMAX Integrated Digital Audio. I also
have a Dell Optiplex GX620 (at 3.2Ghz) with 2GB of RAM and on Windows XP
Professional. This machine also has a Galaxy GeForce GT 610 video card
installed.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

I have worked hard to make sure that this guide is as complete as possible 
but at the same time leave room for exploration. I hope that you enjoy this
guide as much as learn from it. During the construction of this guide I used
the following user created FAQ for additional reference:

  >>"Hitman: Contracts - All Zero Silent Assassin Walkthrough" - by 
     NightMare185.
    **************
       I had used an earlier version of his guide years ago when I was 
       playing around with the other versions of "Contracts" looking for 
       different ideas to play with. Some of his strategies are presented in 
       this guide but I have tried to add my own observations and to make 
       them better. I will be referring to him and his work frequently during 
       this guide.

"Hitman: Contracts" is the third game that features the now-popular
protagonist known as Agent 47, a clone designed for assassination work. The
game was released in 2004 for the PC, Sony PlayStation 2, and MicroSoft Xbox.

It is an interesting entry in the series in that some of the missions are
taken from the first game "Codename 47" and reworked. It has more room for
creativity but also feels easier at the same time. I think it mainly has to
do with less of the randomness that plagued the previous game "Silent
Assassin".

I was surprised by how easy this game is compared to its predecessor. When
playing through the Xbox 360 version I started on Professional instead of
Normal or Expert so I could do some Achievement testing. I hadn't played the
game since I constructed this guide so I expected to have a rough go of it. 

In less than 24 hours I managed to complete the game, and acquire Perfect
Assassin, on all the missions basically using what I had written earlier. The
only exception was "Asylum Aftermath" where I had to completely change things
at the higher difficulties.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

There are several major differences between "Contracts" and its predecessor
"Silent Assassin":

  >>Fewer Missions
    **************
      "Silent Assassin" has twenty missions and "Contracts" has only twelve.

  >>Easier Gameplay
    ***************
      Compared to the previous entry the gameplay feels easier although it 
      seems to have more creative solutions to complete your missions.

  >>No Compass
    **********
      In an odd design move there is no compass to tell you what direction 
      you are facing. However, you can compensate for that for the most part 
      by the use of the in-game Map.

  >>More Weapons
    ************
      In "Contracts" you have more weapons to use and you can acquire 
      additional weapons by earning Silent Assassin ratings in each mission. 
      You even have more extensive use of Poisons to discreetly kill your 
      Targets.

  >>Lack of Knives
    **************
      Although you can use bladed weapons in this game you cannot add them to 
      your weapons collection and have been depreciated in favor of the Fiber 
      Wire.

  >>Perfect Assassin (All Zero) Ratings
    ***********************************
      In "Silent Assassin" there were three missions where you couldn't 
      achieve what fellow "Hitman" FAQ writer Jason Carl called a Perfect 
      Assassin rating - zeros for all scoring categories. In addition, the 
      last mission didn't even have a rating screen - it just went into the 
      ending cutscene.

      In "Contracts" you can get a Perfect Assassin rating for every mission 
      and finish the entire game with one.

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

One other major feature in "Contracts" is that several missions are either
inspired from or remastered versions of missions featured in the first game.
Because of the differences on scoring, gameplay, and layout the strategies
you would've normally used in "Codename 47" won't work in these remastered
versions and vice versa.

  >>Asylum Aftermath
    ****************
      This mission uses the ending of the mission "Meet Your Brother" as a 
      starting point. The entire Basement floor is completely different than 
      the one used in the first game. However, the asylum itself closely 
      resembles its original counterpart but with a few minor changes.

  >>Deadly Cargo
    ************
      This mission is actually the combination of the two Rotterdam missions 
      - "Gunrunner's Paradise" and "Plutonium Runs Loose".

      The gang and strip club are taken from "Gunrunner's Paradise" and the 
      Ship and Target (even though he has a slightly different name he looks 
      almost exactly like Arkadij Jegorov (aka Boris)) are taken from 
      "Plutonium Runs Loose". One major change is that the Dutch Police and 
      SWAT are involved.

  >>Traditions of the Trade
    ***********************
      This mission also has some major changes from the original even though 
      you can kill your Targets in almost the same way you did in the 
      original. The Restaurant, at the west side of the hotel, is completely 
      blocked off and there are Guards patrolling the Dentist office where 
      you acquire the Chemical Bomb.

  >>The Lee Hong Missions
    *********************
      All four of the Lee Hong missions are remastered and presented. Each 
      mission has very different layouts than their originals and present 
      many different ways to accomplish your objectives.

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

All movement, walking and running, is controlled by the Left Analog Stick. In
addition, you can't toggle Sneak Mode on and off. You have to hold down the
Sneak/Crouch button to Sneak around. Unlike the other console versions you
can use cheat discs and other programs with this game:

  >>Xploder HDTV Player
    *******************
      This product will allow you to view your games in progressive scan, 
      usually in 480p. However, unlike with "Silent Assassin" (in which this 
      product didn't work with it), "Contracts" works quite well and looks 
      pretty nice at 640 x 480 on a good VGA monitor.

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

      "Contracts" will also work with GS Mode Selector, preferably in 640 x 
      480. However, the screen tends to be a bit more narrow than what you 
      will get with HDTV Viewer and the screen sits lower and you may not be 
      able to bring the top of the screen all the way to the top of the 
      monitor (dependent on the monitor, of course).

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

      There is one change that I recommend to the compatibility settings for 
      this game. Highlight the game on the Game List menu and select Game 
      Settings. There are eight modes that you can tweak to make your game 
      run better. By default they are all set to OFF.

      You should change Mode 6 to ON. Mode 6 disables something called In 
      Game Reset where you can actually go back to the main menu of Opal 
      without having to turn off the machine by means of holding down certain 
      buttons together.

      I found that if you leave it OFF, at least with "Silent Assassin", then 
      the game will randomly crash during gameplay. As a result I recommend 
      changing Mode 6 to ON just to make sure you don't encounter any 
      potential crash problems with "Contracts".

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

      However, on occasion when you boot up the game, then you may encounter 
      static-like noises. In this instance it is best to reboot the PS2 
      completely. This will fix the problem.

At the time of this writing I do not have a PlayStation 3 so therefore I
don't have any information on how it runs using the Backwards Compatibility
mode on the older PS3s that have it.

All movement, walking and running, is controlled by the Left Analog Stick. It
also has better graphics than the PS2.

However, it is one of the few Xbox games that does not support progressive
scan for Component Video usage (although you can force the PS2 version to do
Progressive Scan with the already mentioned programs so that version has the
advantage in this department).

This version of the game works with the Backward Compatibility feature for
the Xbox 360 (you need the Hard Drive to play Original Xbox games on the
X360). You can play this game in many different resolutions depending on your
monitor or HDTV setup. Although the game runs pretty well there are some
issues:

  >>The full motion video for the Eidos logo and beginning movie will have 
    some sound and video issues.

  >>There is a little line glitch that appears from time to time as you play 
    the game.

  >>The full motion videos that play at the beginning of each chapter take a 
    long time to load.

  >>The game will be pillarboxed and you may need to adjust your television 
    or monitor settings to compensate.

Finally, the White and Black buttons (from the Original Xbox controller) are
replaced by the Left and Right Bumpers which are situated above the Left and
Right Triggers on the Xbox 360 pad.

The controls for this version is similar to the Original Xbox version. You
can install the game to either the hard drive or USB flash drive for faster
loading. You can also play the game in high resolution putting it on par with
the PC version. You can earn Achievements which will force you to play the
game in certain ways if you want to acquire them.

Like with the Xbox 360 version of "Silent Assassin" this game is victimized
by lousy sound encoding. This is apparent on dialogue and especially on music
that isn't done by composer Jesper Kyd. On the music it sounds extremely
rough - like a bad tape recording.

The controls for this version is similar to the PlayStation 2 version. Unlike
with the Xbox 360 version you cannot install this game to the hard drive or
external devices. Like with the Xbox 360 version you can play this game in
high resolution and earn Trophies (which are the same ones in the Xbox 360
version with a couple of exceptions). On this version there are no sound
encoding issues like there was in the Xbox 360 version.

Being that "Contracts" was released in 2004, current PCs and Laptops
should have no problem running the game regardless of graphical resolution
and sound. On old machines, seven years and older, there will be major
issues.

One of my PCs, the Optiplex GX270, came out in 2004, the same time as the
release of the game and meets most of the specs.

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

This game chugs badly unless the resolution is changed to 640x480 and most of
the graphical features are tweaked to its lowest settings. In addition, there
are graphical glitches and corruption to be found in at least two of the
missions. In "The Meat King's Party" there will be glitchy floors and the
heads of some of the partygoers will be missing. In "The Bjarkhov Bomb" most
of the plane you start out in will be missing.

With a dedicated video card the game will run fine in most resolutions and
with no glitches. Therefore, on old machines, a low-end video card, at
minimum, is recommended.

At the time of this writing I now have Dell Optiplex GX620 with 2GB of RAM, a
3.2GHz processor, and a GeForce GT610 video card. The game looks and plays
much better on this machine than on the older GX270.

Because of the keyboard/mouse setup the controls are more complex. The use of
Xpadder helps to make the game easier to play if you prefer a joypad and I
cover that a little later.

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

[3] - Hold down to crouch.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Within the game then set the Mouse Speed setting to 20. If you've done
everythng correctly then, when you spin either right or left, you should spin
extremely fast. From here then set the speed setting downward to something
more comfortable. It is also recommended to Invert the Up/Down Aim.

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

Do *NOT* use the Cursor Keys for selecting menu items. Use the Mousewheel
Up/Down instead. The Cursor Keys do not work with Sniper Rifle zooming. The
Mousewheel will work for both menu item selection and Sniper Rifle zooming.

To enter Sniper Mode then Fire Weapon once. To exit Sniper Mode then tap
Inventory.

Before you start a mission you can go through some simple training in a
specialized Training Area. Here, all of the weapons you have acquired will be
accessible for you to play with.

The Training Area is broken into three sections:

0===========================================================================0
| Sniper Shooting | This is the very large area to the east of your         |
| Range           | starting position. All of the Sniper Rifles that you    |
|                 | have acquired, including plenty of ammo, are available  |
|                 | at the Range.                                           |
|-----------------+---------------------------------------------------------|
| Target Shooting | This is the maze-like area to the south of your         |
| Range           | starting position. Your goal is to shoot as many of the |
|                 | 44 moving targets as you can as you go through the      |
|                 | Range.                                                  |
|-----------------+---------------------------------------------------------|
| Sneak Training  | This is the heavily guarded area to the west of your    |
|                 | starting position. This is where you can practice       |
|                 | various Sneaking techniques. Even though the Guards are |
|                 | heavily armed they cannot hurt you. They can shoot at   |
|                 | you all day and not leave a scratch.                    |
|                 |                                                         |
|                 | This also makes a good way to determine how powerful    |
|                 | your acquired weapons are against human targets without |
|                 | getting hurt.                                           |
|                 |                                                         |
|                 | On the Xbox 360 and PS3 Versions you can acquire the    |
|                 | {1st Kill} and {Headshot} Accomplishments by killing    |
|                 | these Guards.                                           |
0===========================================================================0

When you are done then go into the Pause Manu and select Quit to exit back to
the Main Menu.

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

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

Listed below are the differences between difficulties:

0===========================================================================0
| Normal       | --The Guards have normal sensitivity and you can take a    |
|              |   lot of damage in combat.                                 |
|              | --Everything and everyone appears on the in-game Map.      |
|              | --The maximum number of in-mission saves is seven.         |
|--------------+------------------------------------------------------------|
| Expert       | --The Guards have increased sensitivity and are tougher to |
|              |   kill. This increased sensitivity may make certain        |
|              |   strategies used on Normal useless.                       |
|              | --You take increased damage in combat thus making you      |
|              |   easier to kill.                                          |
|              | --Everything and everyone appears on the in-game Map but   |
|              |   everyone is grayed out except VIPs and Targets.          |
|              | --The maximum number of in-mission saves is three.         |
|--------------+------------------------------------------------------------|
| Professional | --The Guards are more tough to kill than they were at      |
|              |   Expert.                                                  |
|              | --You can be more easily killed than you could at Expert.  |
|              | --Only Targets and VIPs will appear on the in-game Map.    |
|              | --You have no in-mission saves.                            |
0===========================================================================0

It should be noted that the Guard sensitivity has a major effect on only one
mission.

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

When you start a mission then you will usually be given a cutscene before you
begin. You must complete the mission before you can replay it again. In your
initial run-through of a mission you will not be given the opportunity to
select weapons and equipment. You will be given the following:

  >>Silverballers
  >>Silverballer .S (only on Normal difficulty)
  >>Syringe
  >>Fiber Wire
  >>Lockpick
  >>Nightvision Goggles
  >>Binoculars

However, you can quit out of the mission and replay any mission that you have
successfully completed beforehand by going into Start and selecting Current
Game. This will give you the list of missions that you have completed or
about to begin along with the rating you have achieved for each one.

Select a mission and you will be given a choice of what weapons and equipment
you can take into the mission. This list will include weapons that you have
previously acquired. Make your selections and Accept to begin the mission.
Your objectives and mission details will be given to you when you start the
mission.

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

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

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

To keep a weapon you find then you must have it with you when you complete a
mission. It will then be available to you in the Training Area with
appropriate ammo. You can then use these weapons on replays of previous
levels. In addition, you can acquire twelve weapons by earning Silent
Assassin ratings. You can get more information on a weapon by opening the
Inventory Menu.

Although you can find clips of ammo to use on various weapons during the
course of a mission you can also refill your ammo by picking up a weapon of
the same type. If you have a GK17 then you can add to your ammo by picking up
another GK17.

You can also increase the ammo for a weapon even if you pick up different
weapon as long it is in the same class. For example, you can increase the
ammo for the GK17 by picking up a CZ2000 since it is also a pistol and they
share the same ammo.

There is also a beneficial glitch concerning weapon ammo. Usually when you
pick up a weapon for ammo it will disappear. Sometimes, though, when you pick
it up, it won't disappear but you will still get an increase of ammo. When
this happens then continue to pick up the weapon until you max out your ammo
for that weapon.

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

  --Missions: What missions the weapon appears in.
  --Based on: What real life weapon this is based on.
  --Magazine Capacity: How many rounds the magazine of the weapon holds.
  --Maximum Ammo: The maximum amount of ammunition the weapon can hold.
  --Uses: What type of ammo the weapon uses.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
  --Notes: Information on the weapon or item.

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

    >>Syringe
      =======
        Missions: Asylum Aftermath
                  Hunter and Hunted
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------
        Notes: This non-lethal weapon is available from the beginning 
               although it can be found in a couple of missions.

               The Syringe is a hyperthermic needle filled with anesthetic. 
               When used against a victim then it will knock them out for a 
               few minutes, usually just enough time to do what you need to 
               do before he wakes up.

               Unlike the Anesthetic from "Silent Assassin" the Syringe can 
               be prepped and quickly brought out like any other weapon, 
               something you couldn't do with the slow prep time of the 
               Anesthetic.

               The only major drawback to the Syringe is that you will be 
               given only one to use for a mission. However, this will 
               usually be enough to complete your objectives.

    >>Fibre Wire
      ==========
        Notes: This is a specially made weapon, that is available from the 
               beginning, that uses a very strong fiber wire. Its main use is 
               to strangulate your victim from behind. Another feature is 
               that it will not trigger metal detectors.

               The main drawback to using this weapon is that it takes time 
               to kill your victim during which you are vulnerable to being 
               seen.

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

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

    >>Silverballer Dual
      =================
        Based on: .45 ACP Colt M1911.
        Magazine Capacity: 14 rounds.
        Maximum Ammo: 128 rounds.
        Uses: .45 ACP.
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------
        Notes: This semi-automatic pistol packs a punch but has a small 
               magazine. This weapon is always dual wielded. This also means 
               that when you fire once you will use two shots.

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

    >>Silverballer Silenced
      =====================
        Missions: The Meat King's Party
        Based on: .45 ACP Colt M1911.
        Magazine Capacity: 7 rounds.
        Maximum Ammo: 128 rounds.
        Uses: .45 ACP.
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------
        Notes: This is the exact same weapon as above but silenced plus you 
               carry one instead of two. This weapon is given to you on 
               Normal difficulty. On Expert and Professional you have to 
               acquire the gun from the one mission that it appears in.

    >>CZ2000
      ======
        Missions: Asylum Aftermath
                  The Meat King's Party
                  The Bjarkhov Bomb
                  Rendezvous in Rotterdam
                  Deadly Cargo
                  The Seafood Massacre
        Based on: CZ-G2000.
        Magazine Capacity: 15 rounds.
        Maximum Ammo: 135 rounds.
        Uses: Pistol Ammo.
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------
        Notes: This weapon is a 9mm Pistol that was sold primarily in Europe. 
               It has a larger magazine than the Silverballer but is less 
               powerful.

    >>SG220 Silenced (SG220 .S)
      =========================
        Missions: Asylum Aftermath
                  The Bjarkhov Bomb
                  The Seafood Massacre
                  Hunter and Hunted
                  Based on: SIG Sauer P220.
                  Magazine Capacity: 7 rounds.
                  Maximum Ammo: 97 rounds.
                  Uses: Pistol Ammo.
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------
        Notes: This Swiss made 9mm Pistol is similar to the CZ2000 but is 
               silenced. However, it has a smaller clip than the CZ2000.

    >>GK17
      ====
        Missions: Beldingford Manor
                  Deadly Cargo
                  Traditions of the Trade
                  Slaying a Dragon
                  The Seafood Massacre
                  Hunter and Hunted
        Based on: Glock 17.
        Magazine Capacity: 17 rounds.
        Maximum Ammo: 137 rounds.
        Uses: Pistol Ammo.
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------
        Notes: This 9mm Pistol is an Austrian made gun that is mostly made of 
               polymers that is easy to maintain. It has the same amount of 
               power as the previous two pistols but has the largest magazine 
               of the three.

    >>Magnum 500
      ==========
        Missions: Rendezvous in Rotterdam
                  Deadly Cargo
                  Traditions of the Trade
                  The Seafood Massacre
        Based on: Smith & Wesson Model 500.
        Magazine Capacity: 5 rounds.
        Maximum Ammo: 125 rounds.
        Uses: Mag. Ammo.
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------
        Notes: This huge weapon is a .50 caliber revolver. It is nasty up 
               close but is less effective from a distance. In addition, it 
               has a slow rate of fire and a small magazine.

    >>Gold Desert Eagle
      =================
        Missions: Beldingford Manor
                  Rendezvous in Rotterdam
                  Lee Hong Assassination
        Based on: Desert Eagle Mark XIX.
        Magazine Capacity: 10 rounds.
        Maximum Ammo: 127 rounds.
        Uses: Mag. Ammo.
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------
        Notes: This gold plated weapon is the same caliber as the Magnum 500 
               but has a larger magazine and a faster rate of fire.

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

    >>Micro Uzi
      =========
        Missions: Slaying a Dragon
                  The Wang Fou Incident
                  The Seafood Massacre
                  Lee Hong Assassination
        Based on: IMI Micro-Uzi.
        Magazine Capacity: 20 rounds.
        Maximum Ammo: 110 rounds.
        Uses: SMG Ammo.
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------
        Notes: This weapon, a smaller version of the Uzi, has a decent rate 
               of fire but tends to be inaccurate at anything beyond medium 
               distance. Short, controlled bursts will help you to conserve 
               ammo. Part of the inaccuracy problem stems from the fact that 
               your crosshair will jump around as you fire the weapon.

    >>Micro Uzi Silenced (Micro Uzi .S)
      =================================
        Missions: The Wang Fou Incident
                  Lee Hong Assassination
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------
        Notes: This is the same weapon as above but silenced. When you try to 
               pick up a Micro Uzi to replenish your ammo then you will 
               Holster the Silenced Micro Uzi.

               To replenish your ammo for the Silenced Micro Uzi then you 
               have to pick up the regular Micro Uzi, pick up as many of the 
               regular ones as you can, then go and bring out the Silenced 
               Micro Uzi which will cause you to drop the regular Micro Uzi.

    >>MP9 SMG
      =======
        Missions: The Meat King's Party
        Based on: Ruger MP9.
        Magazine Capacity: 25 rounds.
        Maximum Ammo: 135 rounds.
        Uses: SMG Ammo.
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------
        Notes: This unusual looking American made machine pistol has the same 
               rate of fire as the Micro Uzi but is better from longer 
               distance, has a larger magazine, and the Crosshair doesn't 
               move as much when firing.

    >>MP5 SMG
      =======
        Missions: Hunter and Hunted
        Based on: Heckler & Koch MP5.
        Magazine Capacity: 30 rounds.
        Maximum Ammo: 150 rounds.
        Uses: SMG Ammo.
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------
        Notes: This weapon is better than the Micro Uzi because it is more 
               accurate and has a better rate of fire. However, it cannot be 
               concealed.

    >>Aug SMG
      =======
        Missions: Asylum Aftermath
                  The Bjarkhov Bomb
                  Rendezvous in Rotterdam
        Based on: Steyr AUG.
        Magazine Capacity: 25 rounds.
        Maximum Ammo: 145 rounds.
        Uses: SMG Ammo.
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------
        Notes: This unusual looking Austrian built weapon is a bullpup 
               assault rifle of a modular design that can be configured many 
               different ways. It has the same accuracy as the MP5 but is a 
               little less powerful and has a smaller magazine. In addition, 
               just like with the MP5 SMG, this weapon also cannot be 
               concealed.

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

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

    >>AK74
      ====
        Missions: The Bjarkhov Bomb
                  Rendezvous in Rotterdam
                  Deadly Cargo
                  Slaying a Dragon
                  The Wang Fou Incident
                  The Seafood Massacre
                  Lee Hong Assassination
        Based on: Kalashnikov AK-101.
        Magazine Capacity: 30 rounds.
        Maximum Ammo: 150 rounds.
        Uses: Rifle Ammo.
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------
        Notes: This weapon, a refinement of the popular Kalashnikov AK47 
               assault rifle, is more accurate and durable than its 
               predecessor.

    >>M4 Carbine Assault Rifle
      ========================
        Missions: Deadly Cargo
        Based on: M16A2.
        Magazine Capacity: 30 rounds.
        Maximum Ammo: 150 rounds.
        Uses: Rifle Ammo.
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------
        Notes: This assault rifle has about the same power and accuracy as 
               the AK74 but is far less common in the game.

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

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

    >>Double-Barreled Shotgun (Shotgun)
      =================================
        Missions: Beldingford Manor
        Magazine Capacity: 2 rounds.
        Maximum Ammo: 52 rounds.
        Uses: Shotgun Ammo.
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------
        Notes: This large double barreled weapon can fire off two quick shots 
               before reloading. But reloading takes valuable time which can 
               be crucial in a firefight.

    >>Sawn Off Shotgun (Sawn Off)
      ===========================
        Missions: Beldingford Manor
                  Rendezvous in Rotterdam
                  Deadly Cargo
                  Traditions of the Trade
                  The Seafood Massacre
                  Lee Hong Assassination
        Magazine Capacity: 2 rounds.
        Maximum Ammo: 52 rounds.
        Uses: Shotgun Ammo.
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------
        Notes: This is the exact same weapon as above except that it has most 
               of the barrels sawn off thus allowing you to conceal it.

    >>SPAS 12 Shotgun
      ===============
        Missions: Asylum Aftermath
                  Traditions of the Trade
                  Hunter and Hunted
        Based on: Franchi SPAS 12.
        Magazine Capacity: 8 rounds.
        Maximum Ammo: 58 rounds.
        Uses: Shotgun Ammo.
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------
        Notes: This weapon packs the same punch as the above shotguns but has 
               the distinct advantage of being able to fire multiple rounds 
               before reloading.

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

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

  To use a Sniper Rifle press the Fire button to bring up the scope then use 
  the D-Pad or Mousewheel to go through the three levels of zoom. Then press 
  Fire again to fire the weapon.

  You will notice that your scope will bob up and down. The more you sit 
  still, the more it will stabilize. This is important to know so you can 
  make a good shot at someones noggin.

  It is also important to know that you can shoot through more than one 
  target with these weapons. In addition, all of the Sniper Rifles appear to 
  have the same range of effectiveness.

    >>Enforcer Sniper
      ===============
        Missions: Asylum Aftermath
                  Beldingford Manor
                  Lee Hong Assassination
        Based on: Enfield L42A1.
        Magazine Capacity: 10 rounds.
        Maximum Ammo: 35 rounds.
        Uses: Sniper Ammo.
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------
        Notes: This British made Rifle has a narrow sniper scope and a two 
               level zoom. In addition, the sight only kicks up slightly when 
               fired.

    >>R93 Sniper
      ==========
        Missions: Deadly Cargo
                  The Seafood Massacre
        Based on: Blaser Jagdwaffen R93 Sniper.
        Magazine Capacity: 5 rounds.
        Maximum Ammo: 25 rounds.
        Uses: Sniper Ammo.
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------
        Notes: This Sniper Rifle has a smaller magazine but has a larger 
               sniper scope with a three level zoom. However, the sight kicks 
               up considerably when fired.

    >>Dragunov Sniper
      ===============
        Missions: Asylum Aftermath
                  The Meat King's Party
                  The Bjarkhov Bomb
                  Rendezvous in Rotterdam
                  Slaying a Dragon
        Based on: SVDM Dragunov.
        Magazine Capacity: 10 rounds.
        Maximum Ammo: 35 rounds.
        Uses: Sniper Ammo.
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------
        Notes: This Russian made Sniper Rifle has a larger magazine, and 
               sniper scope, than the R93 Sniper. And, like the R93, the 
               sight kicks up considerably when fired.

    >>PGM Sniper
      ==========
        Missions: Hunter and Hunted
        Based on: PGM Hecate II.
        Magazine Capacity: 10 rounds.
        Maximum Ammo: 35 rounds.
        Uses: Sniper Ammo.
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------
        Notes: This French made heavy Sniper Rifle shares similar traits with 
               the Dragunov. However, the sniper scope has a nice red dot in 
               the center to help make it easier to aim.

    >>W2000 Sniper
      ============
        Missions: The Wang Fou Incident
        Based on: Walther WA2000 Sniper.
        Magazine Capacity: 6 rounds.
        Maximum Ammo: 35 rounds.
        Uses: Sniper Ammo.
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------
        Notes: Only 176 of these rifles were ever made because it was too 
               expensive to achieve widespread sales of the weapon. This 
               makes it a rare and valuable collectable.

               This is the best sniper rifle in the game despite the smaller 
               magazine as compared to the last two rifles. The three level 
               sniper scope has a distance calculator and it only kicks up a 
               little more than the Enforcer Sniper when fired.

               And the really nice thing about this weapon is that it is 
               silenced thus making it perfect for long distance quiet kills. 
               This weapon is considered the signature sniper rifle of the 
               "Hitman" games.

    >>Sniper Suitcase
      ===============
        Missions: Traditions of the Trade
                  Slaying a Dragon
                  Lee Hong Assassination
                  Hunter and Hunted
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------
        Notes: This specially made suitcase, given to you on a couple of 
               missions, is how the W2000 Sniper can be carried, and 
               obtained, discreetly.

               However, according to reader Steven Larink, the Sniper 
               Suitcase can be used to carry all of the other Sniper Rifles.

               Equip the Sniper Suitcase to bring out the W2000 Sniper. Then 
               drop the W2000 nearby. Pick up another Sniper Rifle and pick 
               up the Suitcase to put the weapon into it. An excellent way of 
               safely obtaining new Rifles.

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

  These large un-concealable weapons are the most powerful firearms in the 
  game.

    >>M60
      ===
        Missions: Deadly Cargo
                  Slaying a Dragon
                  Lee Hong Assassination
        Based on: M60E3.
        Magazine Capacity: 100 rounds.
        Maximum Ammo: 450 rounds.
        Uses: MG Ammo.
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------
        Notes: The M60 is a very powerful belt fed large machine gun that 
               normally is handled by two people - one to fire and one to 
               handle the ammo belt.

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

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

    >>Mini Gun
      ========
        Missions: Asylum Aftermath
        Based on: GE M134 Minigun.
        Magazine Capacity: 1,000 rounds.
        Maximum Ammo: 5,000 rounds.
        Uses: MG Ammo.
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------
        Notes: This large gatling-style machine gun is the most powerful 
               weapon in the game. It spits ammo like there's no tomorrow and 
               very little can stand up to it.

               The Mini Gun can be found inside one of the locked rooms 
               during the mission "Asylum Aftermath" that can only be 
               accessed by Orthmeyer's Key that is found in the mission "The 
               Wang Fou Incident".

               In real life, this weapon is often attached to vehicles and 
               cannot be carried by a person. But, just like with the M60, 
               you have no problems lugging this thing with you.

               There are a couple of major drawbacks though.

               The first is that it takes about three to four seconds from 
               the time you hold down the Fire Button to actually shoot the 
               weapon. This is because the barrel needs to start spinning 
               before it can shoot bullets.

               Another downside to the Mini Gun is that you move very slowly 
               while carrying it. This makes you vulnerable to attack plus it 
               takes you forever to get anywhere.

               However, once you start firing the Mini Gun, bodies will fly 
               as you unleash the full power of this mighty weapon.

  0=======================================================0

When using the silenced versions of the MP5, M4 Carbine, and AK74 then you
will drop the weapon when you try to pick up the regular version of the
weapon. To replenish your ammo for the silenced weapon then you have to pick
up the regular weapon, pick up as many of the regular ones as you can, then
go and pick up the silenced weapon which will cause you to drop the regular
one.

Listed in this sub-chapter are weapons that you will find in certain missions
that you cannot take back with you to add to your weapons collection:

0===========0
| Electrical \
0===============================================>

  These weapons use electricity to either incapacitate or kill your victims.

    >>Stun Gun
      ========
        Missions: Asylum Aftermath
        --------------------------------------------------------------------- 
        Notes: The Stun Gun is a non-lethal weapon that will knock out a 
               person rather than kill him. It has the same effectiveness as 
               the Syringe and your victim will be unconscious the same 
               amount of time.

    >>Bolt Gun
      ========
        Missions: The Meat King's Party
        --------------------------------------------------------------------- 
        Notes: The Bolt Gun is a device that is meant to kill livestock from 
               behind. It cannot be used from the front. If you try to use 
               the weapon on somebody from the front it will have the same 
               effect as if you are just standing there doing nothing.

0=============0
| Blunt Object \
0===============================================>

  These melee weapons can instantly kill a target from behind. However, when 
  attacking from the front, then you will have to hit the target a couple of 
  times with the weapon to kill him.

    >>Meat Hook
      =========
        Missions: The Meat King's Party
                  Rendezvous in Rotterdam
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------
        Notes: This is a simple large meat hook used in abattoirs but can 
               make a handy weapon if the need arises.

    >>Fire Poker
      ==========
        Missions: The Bjarkhov Bomb
                  Beldingford Manor
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------
        Notes: This long metal object is generally used for fireplaces to 
               move around burning logs.

    >>Pool Cue
      ========
        Missions: Beldingford Manor
                  Rendezvous in Rotterdam
                  Deadly Cargo
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------
        Notes: The Pool Cue is used to play games of pool. Being that this 
               weapon is made of wood it will break apart after a few hits 
               but will last longer if you use it from behind.

    >>Shovel
      ======
        Missions: Beldingford Manor
        --------------------------------------------------------------------- 
        Notes: This large wooden weapon will break apart after a couple of 
               hits regardless of whether or not it is used from the front or 
               behind.

0=======0
| Bladed \
0===============================================>

  These melee weapons share the same damage properties as the Blunt Force 
  types.

    >>Kitchen Knife
      =============
        Missions: Asylum Aftermath
                  The Meat King's Party
                  Rendezvous in Rotterdam
                  Deadly Cargo
                  Traditions of the Trade
                  Lee Hong Assassination
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------
        Notes: This is just a simple large kitchen knife that can be used to 
               slash somebody's throat from behind.

    >>Meat Cleaver
      ============
        Missions: The Meat King's Party
                  Lee Hong Assassination
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------
        Notes: This is a large cleaver that can be used just as easily 
               against humans.

    >>Chinese Sword
      =============
        Missions: Lee Hong Assassination
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------
        Notes: This large two-handed sword has the same damage properties as 
               the other melee weapons despite the fact that is supposed to 
               be Poisoned.

0========0
| Poisons \
0===============================================>

  These weapons, when used with food or drink, can either cause a person to 
  go to the bathroom or kill them discreetly.

    >>Laxative
      ========
        Missions: The Bjarkhov Bomb

Many firearms can appear in more than one mission. A firearm that may be hard
to get in one mission can be had far more easily in another. In this
sub-chapter I am listing the easiest missions to get certain firearms. I am

Many small items you find can be carried with you with no problems. However,
you can carry only one large unconcealable item. But you can get around this
limitation according to reader Steven Larink.

His suggestion was mainly for the mission "Traditions of the Trade" but can
work for most large items. He noted that you can carry the Bombcase and the
Sniper Suitcase at the same time. At the end of the mission, when you walk
out of the Hotel with the Bombcase, then head back to where you dropped the
Sniper Suitcase.

Go into the Inventory Menu and Equip the Bombcase. You will then hold the
Bombcase like you would a weapon. Then pick up the Sniper Suitcase and you
will now hold both suitcases. This is also handy if you want to smuggle out a
Sniper Rifle (using the Suitcase) and one other large weapon.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Threat Meter represents how much stress you have when close to Guards or
your Target. When it flashes red then you are considered to be in danger.

This usually happens when you are near Guards and the longer you stay around
them then the greater the chance that you will be discovered and attacked.
Moving away from the Guard or Target will allow it to decrease without losing
your cover.

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

This is the most important tool you have to help you in your missions. It
displays everything in real time (except at harder difficulty levels) on
every level of a Map. Since there is no compass to tell you which way you are
pointing then the Map will help in compensating for that. The top of the Map
is considered north and the bottom is south.

You will also see how everyone moves which will be extremely useful in
planning your attacks. There are multiple icons you will see on your Map:

0===========================================================================0

|---------------+-----------------------------------------------------------|
| Orange        | This is an enemy. These are usually Guards.               |
|---------------+-----------------------------------------------------------|
| Gray          | These are innocent Civilians. They are harmless but if    |
|               | they see you doing something suspicious then they will go |
|               | to a nearby Guard to inform them of it.                   |
|---------------+-----------------------------------------------------------|
| Blue          | These are Police (Cops). They are pretty much the same as |
|               | a regular enemy.                                          |

A circle with an X is a dead body. A solid orange circle is an animal (Dogs,
Horses). A pulsing yellow "!" symbol is known as a Point of Interest. These
marked places either contain a potentially useful item or is a place where
you can do a specific action.

A green pulsing glyph symbol is known as an Agency Pickup. This is where you
can find items that the Agency has left for you to use on the mission. A blue
circle with a lightning symbol is a Power Switch. A white circle with an
arrow is a Sewer Hole.

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

If you are using a weapon then you can Holster it by using the Holster
button. Just like with "Silent Assassin" if you press the Holster button
again after holstering your weapon then you will bring out that weapon again.

This will allow you quickly bring out a weapon for a quick attack. Bringing
out a weapon and quickly holstering it for an attack later in the mission is
known as "Prepping" the weapon.

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

However, this takes time during which you risk being seen, and/or possibly
heard, by a nearby Guard. So you must make sure that nobody is around before
you do any lockpicking.

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

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

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

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

One of the more irritating things about "Silent Assassin" was that there was
a lot of general randomness that made things frustrating in certain missions.
Although "Contracts" can get random at times it is far less than that
of its predecessor.

Most of the time you will be walking through a mission. You can increase your
speed by running. But the bad thing about running is that it also makes noise
which can attract Guards and spook Civilians if you run too close to them.
This is usually a bad thing but you can also use this to your advantage.

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

Sometimes, though, you can make a Guard look away from somebody by simply
walking past him in a certain direction.

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

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

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

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

0===========================================================================0
| Sedate | This is the melee attack method I use as it will allow for the   |
|        | best possible score. Below are the moves involved in the method: |
|        |                                                                  |
|        |  --Get close behind a target regardless of whether or not he is  |
|        |    moving.                                                       |
|        |  --Bring out your SYRINGE.                                       |
|        |  --Enter Sneak Mode and creep up on your target.                 |
|        |  --Attack your victim.                                           |
|--------+------------------------------------------------------------------|
| Wire   | This is if you wish to kill a target with the Fiber Wire. It     |
|        | uses the same moves as the Sedate method described above.        |
0===========================================================================0

Another type of melee attack that you can do is Pistolwhipping. When you have
a gun drawn and you are very close to somebody then you can smack them in the
head with it.

Civilians will go down in one hit but it will take several hits to bring down
a Guard. However, your victim will only stay down for a little while before
getting up. One interesting thing to note - when you Pistolwhip a Guard then
he will drop his weapon. If you pick up the weapon then you will effectively
disarm him and he will stand around, cower, or run when he gets up.

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

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

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

Every so often you will see me talk about Rampaging. This means basically
going through a mission and killing most, if not, everybody in it. It is
recommended that you get a Perfect Assassin score for the mission first
before Rampaging through it since the game will save your best score
regardless of what you do later.

Rampaging is beneficial in that it will allow for easier acquisition of
certain weapons and to acquire Achievements and Trophies for the Xbox 360 and
PS3 versions of the game.

In most missions you will need to get a disguise to enter restricted access
areas and get close to your Target. Usually this is done by killing or
knocking out a person and taking his clothes.

As long as you do not do anything out of the ordinary then you will be seen
as a Guard or somebody that is supposed to be there and you can move freely
about. If any other Guards see the body of the dead or sleeping person you
switched clothes with then they will become suspicious and will start looking
for somebody dressed as that person (meaning: you).

They will also become suspicious when the person you took the clothes from
wakes up. However, depending on where the sleeping person is or what you do
with him, he may not be able to warn the others. However, if you Sedated a
person and did not take his clothes, then, when he wakes up, he will go about
his business as if nothing has happened.

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

At the end of each mission you will be given a rating. It is broken down into
multiple categories:

0===========================================================================0

|                   | rifle.                                                |

|                   | music changes to something more ominous, doesn't      |

|                   |                                                       |
|                   | However, you can blow your cover and not have it      |
|                   | count as a Close Encounter as long as the Guards      |
|                   | don't draw their weapons and attack you.              |
|-------------------+-------------------------------------------------------|
| Head Shots        | This is how many head shots you acquired if you fired |
|                   | a weapon at somebody.                                 |
|-------------------+-------------------------------------------------------|
| Alerts            | This is how many times you alerted Guards during the  |
|                   | mission. Blowing your cover, shooting at somebody,    |
|                   | and spooking a Civilian will usually result in an     |
|                   | Alert.                                                |
|                   |                                                       |
|                   | When a body is found by anybody then you will also    |
|                   | get an Alert. What's annoying about this is that,     |
|                   | even if you didn't kill that person, you will always  |
|                   | get an Alert when that body is found.                 |
|                   |                                                       |
|                   | If you Sedated a person and he wakes up then you will |
|                   | get a notice that the Guards are looking for a        |
|                   | suspicious person. However, this does *NOT* count as  |
|                   | an Alert unless he ends up alerting Guards.           |
|-------------------+-------------------------------------------------------|
| Enemies/Innocents | This lists how many Enemies and Innocents killed and  |
| Killed/Harmed     | harmed. To harm a person you need to shoot and wound  |
|                   | him but not kill him.                                 |

| Stealth           | This blue line indicates how stealthy you were. The   |
|                   | more stealthy you were, the longer this line becomes. |
|-------------------+-------------------------------------------------------|
| Aggression        | This red line indicates how much you killed,          |
|                   | especially with guns. The more you kill, the longer   |
|                   | this line becomes.                                    |
|-------------------+-------------------------------------------------------|
| Rating            | This tells you your overall mission rating. You can   |
|                   | go from Mass Murderer to Silent Assassin which is the |
|                   | best rating.                                          |

At the bottom you will see Overall. This will tell you what your overall
rating for the entire game.

As just noted in the Rampaging chapter the game will save only your best
score for a mission. If you got a Silent Assassin ranking for a mission and
played through it again killing everybody to obtain weapons then that score
won't count against you.

After looking over your rating then Continue to move forward. You can save
your progress and go the next mission. On both the Xbox and PC versions the
game will automatically make a game save at the end of every mission. On the
PS2 version you are asked whether or not you want to save the game.

Any weapon you acquired during a mission will be permanently added to your
collection at the Training Area.

When you Quit a current mission and Start a Current Game then you can replay
a previously completed mission to improve your rating for that mission or to
acquire more weapons. When replaying a mission then you can use any weapon
you have acquired to that point. This will allow you to try new tactics or to
just have some fun rampaging through a mission.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Many of the Accomplishments within the game are easy to get. Some require
more work. They are broken down into Visible, Secret, and PS3 Specific
sections. They are also grouped based on certain attributes.

      Xbox 360 Achievement Points: 45 GS.
      PlayStation 3 Trophy Class: Gold.
      Notes: Many of the missions have a lot more than 47 people. I found 
             that the mission "Traditions of the Trade" is the best place to 
             do this since it is easy to spare the necessary people to allow 
             you to get precisely 47 kills.

      Xbox 360 Achievement Points: 10 GS.

The following are based on game difficulty. In many games the difficulty
based Accomplishments are stackable. This means that if you play the hardest
difficulty setting without playing the easier ones first then you can get all
of the difficulty based Accomplishments at once when you beat the game. This
game is one where the difficulty based Accomplishments *ARE* stackable.

  >>Normal Mode Complete

      Xbox 360 Achievement Points: 15 GS.

      PlayStation 3 Trophy Class: Silver.
      Notes: In an odd move there is no Xbox 360 Achievement for knocking out

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

            /=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=\
 /=========================================================================\
| >GEN24. The International Contract Agency                                 |
 \=========================================================================/
            \=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=/

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

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

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

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

Each Mission listed is broken into several parts:

0=========0
| Overview \
0=======================================================>

A detailed overview of the mission.

0===================0
| Mission Objectives \
0=======================================================>

A general listing of your mission objectives.

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

This section goes over the entire mission Map and points out Points of
Interests (which I sometimes shorthand to "PoI"), Agency Pickups, and
Guard/Civilian placements.

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

This is the listing of all of the weapons that you will find in the mission.
There will also be notes on acquiring them. Many weapons can be safely
acquired during your initial run-through. Others should be later obtained
after you earn a Silent Assassin rating and bring certain weapons with you
such as the Sniper Suitcase.

There are no bonuses for acquiring every weapon in the game except for the
Xbox 360 and PS3 versions where there are several Accomplishments that you
can earn for collecting them.

Speaking of the Xbox 360 and PS3, even though you can't collect Melee Weapons
there is an Accomplishment for finding them. Therefore I will list all of the
Melee Weapons that you can find in each mission. As for the Accomplishment,
you only need to find the following:

  >>Stun Gun
  >>Bolt Gun
  >>Fire Poker
  >>Pool Cue
  >>Shovel
  >>Kitchen Knife
  >>Meat Cleaver
  >>Chinese Sword

The Syringe and Fiber Wire are already part of your inventory and the Meat
Hook you automatically start out with at the beginning of the mission "The
Meat King's Party". To consider the weapon found you only need to pick it up
- you don't need to keep it. This is useful for the larger ones - just pick
it up, wait a couple of seconds, then drop it.

As for the other weapon based Accomplishments it is best to unlock them while
playing on the Normal difficulty level as it will be faster and easier.
Because there are so many weapons to find and collect it may be best to write
down all of them, including the melee ones, and check them off as you acquire
them.

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

Some general notes about the entire mission that includes tips and
observations. I also make general notations regarding the Xbox 360 and PS3
versions of the game, especially Accomplishments.

0===========================================================================0
|==========================| Mission Walkthrough |==========================|
0===========================================================================0

This is the walkthrough for the mission at hand. It is designed to help you
get a Silent Assassin or Perfect Assassin rating in the best and easiest way
possible (while being able to obtain new weapons for your weapons
collection). Although this guide is written mainly for the Normal difficulty
I have made notes concerning the higher difficulties.

It should be noted that there is no such rating as Perfect Assassin. This was
coined by fellow "Hitman" FAQ writer Jason Carl and refers to having a Silent
Assassin rating with all zeros meaning no shots fired, no Alerts, no Close
Encounters, and no kills (except the Target). This is also known as an All
Zero or AZ score.

These strategies also use just two weapons in your arsenal: the Syringe and
the Fiber Wire. I also take advantage of mission specific weapons such as
Poisons and other unobtainable weapons.

Although the Guards and Civilians are supposed to have increased sensitivity
at Expert and Professional difficulties you can still run through a mission
as long as you don't get too close them and know when to walk. Therefore you
should run whenever possible unless specified.

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

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

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

As the story begins we see a television screen with a ballistics expert named
Donna Davis explaining the operation of a standard handgun in a demonstration
cutscene. As the bullet in the cutscene leaves the gun there is a sudden loud
noise and people screaming as the television screen goes static.

Next we see 47 staggering down a hallway. He has been shot by someone who was
laying in wait for him (later seen in the sequel "Blood Money"). But the
assassin failed to kill 47 and he is now trying to get back to his hotel
room. When 47 opens the door then he falls down and loses consciousness. As
he lays there, visions of his past work begin to float inside his head and
that is when the game starts.....

As 47 lays on the floor he begins to remember his encounter with Dr.
Orthmeyer, the person who created him using the genetics of not only the
doctor himself but of four other people - Lee Hong, Pablo Belisario Ochoa,
Frantz Fuchs, and Arkadij Jegorov.

47 then kills the doctor and begins to leave the Asylum. But there are SWAT
all around the inside of the building and he must get past them in order to
escape.....

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

There are five levels to the Map:

  >>Basement
  >>1st Floor
  >>2nd Floor
  >>3rd Floor
  >>Outside

The Basement Map is where you start. The only Point of Interest is the
Syringes you can find on a table. The green line is the path leading to the
Elevator. The 1st Floor is where most of the SWAT are. The Point of Interest,
to the north, is the Patient Outfit that you can use to blend in.

The 2nd Floor has one Point of Interest and that is where you can find Car
Keys you can use to help in your escape. The 3rd Floor has nothing special on
the Map but that is where you can find some weapons laying in some of the
rooms. The Outside Map is where you can find the Exit Point.

| There are a whole lot of weapons here. You can get the Kitchen Knife,     |
| Stun Gun, CZ2000, and the SPAS 12 Shotgun safely on your initial          |
| run-through. When you have acquired the W2000 Sniper from the mission     |

This is a very simple mission made even easier with the hints and the SWAT
Outfit. This is the only mission where the strategy is substantially changed
based on the difficulty level.

  >>Xbox 360 and PS3 Versions
    *************************
      If you did not acquire the {1st Kill} and {Headshot} Accomplishments 
      from the Training Room then you can quickly get them here on your 
      initial run-through. When you start the mission then enter the first 
      large room where you will find three large Clone tubes and several 
      Patients.

      Find the Patient sitting on the ground and shoot him once in the head. 
      You'll get both of the Accomplishments plus {Killed the Wrong Guy}. If 
      you have the PS3 version then proceed further to find the Syringes. 
      Pick them up and use one on the nearby Patient to acquire the {Sleep 
      Well} Trophy. After acquiring these Accomplishments then simply restart 
      since you didn't proceed very far.

      Completing the mission with a clean score will net you both the {1st 
      Mission Complete} and {Silent Assassin} Accomplishments. When you 
      return here after obtaining Orthmeyer's Keycard from the mission "The 
      Wang Fou Incident" then you will get the {Minigun} and {Double Eagle} 
      Accomplishments for acquiring the Special Weapons.

      If you acquired the M60 from either "Deadly Cargo" or "Slaying a 
      Dragon" then this is the earliest you can get the {All Heavy Weapon 
      Weapons Collected} Accomplishment when you obtain the Mini Gun and 
      finish the mission.

      If you want then you can play through this mission, and earn a Silent 
      Assassin rating, five times to get the {5 Silent Assassins} 
      Accomplishments since it can be done quickly here. Acquiring the Stun 
      Gun and Kitchen Knife will add towards the {All Melee Weapons Found} 
      Accomplishment.

0===========================================================================0
|===========================| Normal Difficulty |===========================|
0===========================================================================0

When you start the mission then you will be in a large white room with
Orthmeyer's body in front of you. Go to his body and pick up the Car Key.
From here, follow the way to the Elevator but grab an CZ2000 from one of the
Clones along the way. There are no threats down here - the Patients won't
hurt you.

Get on the Elevator and take it to the 2nd Floor. Turn left to find a dead
SWAT. Take Clothes, the SPAS 12 Shotgun, the Stun Gun, and the Kitchen Knife,
then walk south through the doors into the large Operating Theater. The SWAT
will ignore you since you are dressed as one of them.

Walk through the next door and you should see stairs leading up and two sets
of stairs leading down to your left and right. Head down to find a group of
SWAT at the bottom. Look south to find two doors. Go through the one on the
west side, the one to your right, and it will lead you outside.

Head to the northwest corner of the Outside area to find a car with one of
the SWAT patrolling it. Wait for him to get on the passenger side of the car
before approaching it and escaping to successfully complete the mission.
Don't worry if you run over the SWAT in the cutscene - it won't affect your
score.

0===========================================================================0
|=========================| Expert/Pro Difficulty |=========================|
0===========================================================================0

On these difficulties you cannot walk out as a SWAT - you'll be immediately
shot at by the ones posted near the Main Entrance. You need to dress as a
Patient and go out through the Lab area.

When you get up to the 2nd Floor then Take Clothes from one of the dead
Patients and grab the Stun Gun. Run down to the Main Entrance and start
walking just before you get to the SWAT. The SWAT will tell you to wait in
the Lab. You can't walk out the front door - you'll be shot if you do. When
you get inside the Lab then you need to wait for the patrolling SWAT to come
down the spiral staircase before you can do anything else.

It is important to note that you can't stay too long on the 1st Floor part of
the Lab. Inside the room with you is a stationary Patient. If you wait for
too long then he will magically bring out an Aug SMG and shoot at either the
floor or the ceiling. This will bring in the nearby SWAT who will shoot at
him. Unfortunately, they will shoot at you too. If you are on the 2nd Floor
when this happens then you are safe.

This happens on all versions and on all difficulties.

After the patrolling SWAT comes down and heads back up then gently creep up
the stairs and look up and north. Wait for him to disappear to the left
before heading up the remainder of the stairs. Then run up the stairs and to
the double doors. Sneak in and turn left to find him standing there.

Bring out the Stun Gun and Zap him then Take Clothes. Then go out the glass
doors, climb down the Ladder, and Escape in the Car to successfully complete
the mission.

As 47 comes to then he heads to the Bathroom. While he is cleaning himself up
then he begins to hallucinate. He eventually finds himself in a freezer truck
interrogating a Butcher. After knocking him out then 47 begins another
mission.

The Targets are Campbell Sturrock (aka "The Meat King") and his lawyer Andrei
Puscus. The client's daughter was kidnapped by Sturrock but, despite
overwhelming evidence in court, the lawyer got the charges dropped.

So now the client wants both men dead. But the assassinations is not all that
needs to be done. 47 must also find and rescue the kidnapped girl. She is
being held at the meat plant where a huge party is being held in celebration
of the charges being dropped. A party that 47 intends to crash.....

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

There are three levels to the Map:

  >>Outside
  >>1st Floor
  >>2nd Floor

The Outside Map is where you start. Your Exit Points are to the east side of
the Compound. The 1st Floor is the main Abattoir/Bar/Opium Den/Dance area.
The Abattoir is the large area to the north. The Locker Room and Kitchen is
in the center and the Bar/Opium Den/Dance area is to the south.

There are also three Point of Interests here. The one near the center is the
Opium Waiter Outfit which is inside the Locker Room. The second one, just
below that, is the Chicken Plate that you can use to smuggle weapons
upstairs. The last one, just south of that, is the Bar where you can find
Opium Pipes.

Andrei Puscus, and his personal Guard, can be found wandering this floor. The
2nd Floor has one Point of Interest, on the north half, is where you will
find the Kidnapped Girl. Sturrock himself is at the west side of the south
half.

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

This mission lends itself to some creativity. Most people, including
NightMare185, use the standard smuggling technique where you smuggle a weapon
inside a large Chicken then kill Sturrock with the weapon after he chases the
two girls, his companions, away so he can eat.

However, I found that the girls tend to come back into the room and discover
his body which results in an Alert. But, one of NightMare185's other
contributors, KJK150, suggested knocking out the girls with the Opium Pipe
before killing Sturrock. I found that to be better because they will have no
chance of discovering his body.

Unfortunately, they can be made to wake up if you don't do things in order.
For the Opium Pipe to be most successful it needs to be done after you
smuggle a weapon into the chicken and drop it into Sturrock's room. And you
should kill the Lawyer first before going after Sturrock.

In addition, one of the rules of this mission is that there can only be one
Opium Waiter in the Bar/Opium Den area at one time. It will make you
suspicious if you are in that area when the other one is also there. While
NightMare185 prefers to avoid him and do his business when the Opium Waiter
is in the Locker Room I prefer to just Sedate him and get him out of the way
for the rest of the mission.

Although you can smuggle and use the Meat Hook to kill your Targets I prefer
to just drop it since that is a weaker weapon than the Meat Cleaver and
Kitchen Knife found in the Kitchen.

With all that explained, what I've done here is to combine the weapon
smuggling and Opium Pipe techniques plus knocking out the Opium Waiter and
streamlined the strategy into a very nice run-through.

  >>Xbox 360 and PS3 Versions
    *************************
      There are two new Melee Weapons in this mission, the Bolt Gun and Meat 
      Cleaver, that you can find to add towards the {All Melee Weapons Found} 
      Accomplishment. You'll use the Meat Cleaver and Kitchen Knife in the 
      run-through leaving the Bolt Gun as the other weapon you will have to 
      search for.

|==========================| Mission Walkthrough |==========================|

When you start the mission then you will be inside the truck. Take Clothes
from the Butcher then drop all guns plus the Meat Hook. Then get out of the
truck and find the red blinking switch on the side. Activate it to close the
doors and prevent the Butcher from alerting anyone when he wakes up later.

Follow the way until you get to the main door. Here you will be frisked for
the first time. Even though the Meat Hook can be used as a weapon having it
on you won't blow your cover - after all you're supposed to be a Butcher at
this point.

After being frisked then go through the door. Continue straight and go
through the next double door. Turn left to find a set of stairs leading up to
the 2nd Floor. When you get to the top of the stairs then turn right and go
through the double doors. Then stop when you get to the next double doors and
look through the Keyhole.

In the room just to the north of you is the Kidnapped Girl. However,
Sturrock's brother is currently in the room at this point. You need to wait
for him to leave and go into the room at the southwest corner before
proceeding. Wait for him to cross your view through the Keyhole before
running to the Girl. Or, unfortunately, what's left of her.

After the cutscene then grab the Murder Proof and run back down the stairs
you came up on. When you get to the bottom of the stairs then continue
forward until you get to the wall then turn left. You should see another set
of stairs and a nearby Guard. There is a set of double doors next to him.

Go through this door and you should enter a short corridor with a trash
dumpster. Go through the door at the end and you will enter a short corridor
section with doors on all four sides. The door that enters into the Locker
Room is to your left.

Continue straight and go through the next double door. You should enter a
longer corridor section. To your left is a single door and, a little bit
further down, is a double door. Go through the double door and you will enter
the Kitchen. You will then be told to take the Chicken up to Sturrock.

Go to the Chicken Plate, pick up the nearby Meat Cleaver, and Place the Meat
Cleaver into the Chicken. Then go back out of the Kitchen and head south to
the Bar/Opium Den area. By taking the Chicken yourself this will keep the
Chef from delivering it and will prevent any potential interference from him.

In addition, the Meat Cleaver is a much better weapon that the Meat Hook
which is why you should drop the Hook at the beginning of the mission and use
the Cleaver. And you cannot have the Meat Hook on you for the later stages of
the mission.

When you go through the entrance to the Bar/Opium Den area then go south
through the door on the other side and follow the way to the Dance Floor.
Here you should see the stairs leading up to the south half of the 2nd Floor.

On the Xbox version you should stick to the railing on the right side as you
head up.

At the top of the stairs is another Guard who will frisk you. However, he is
more diligent and will blow your cover if you have any kind of weapon,
including the Meat Hook, on you. This is why you need to drop the Meat Hook.
But he won't find the Meat Cleaver because it is hidden inside the Chicken.

On the Xbox version you will turn left to face the Guard as you are being
searched. If you are against the left railing then the Guard may glitch
through it and fall down to the lower floor. Unfortunately, this will, quite
lamely, blow your cover.

After getting frisked then turn right, go through the door, and you should be
near Sturrock's room. Enter his room, go behind the wall at the back of his
bed and close to the door so the Guard in the previous room doesn't see you,
then retrieve the Meat Cleaver and drop it.

Then go into the main area of the room, go to the nearby Curtain Controls,
and Pull Curtains so they will drop down and conceal Sturrock. Give the
Chicken to Sturrock (the last meal before his execution) then leave but drop
the Plate before you get to the door.

Head to the Bar to pick up an Opium Pipe then go to the Kitchen to pick up a
Kitchen Knife. Go into the Locker Room and you may see the Opium Waiter being
entertained by one of the guests. Drop the Opium Pipe between the two rows of
lockers then go back near the door and stand in the corner until both the
Opium Waiter and his guest leave.

Then go back to the door to the hallway but stand to the left of it, have
your back against the wall, then bring out the Syringe and check your Map.
This will put you in good position to ambush the Opium Waiter when he comes
back here later.

  >>Professional
    ************
      At this difficulty you don't have the use of the Map so go back in the 
      hallway, go to the south doors, open them and keep them open, and look 
      south. When he re-appears at the opposite doors then run back into the 
      Locker Room and wait by the door so you can ambush him.

While you're waiting then Andrei will go from the Opium Den to the Restroom
then back into the Bar/Opium Den area. Then he will go to the Dance Floor and
back to the Opium Den and, shortly after he arrives then the Opium Waiter
will head back to the Locker Room. When he opens the door and enters then
quickly Sneak behind him and Sedate him. If you do this right then you should
get him around the first row of lockers if not before.

Usually when he enters and sits then one of the guests will come to entertain
him, like you saw earlier, so it is best to drag his body out of the Locker
Room. However, I prefer to drag him outside to the west because I don't want
him to be near the Exit Point.

After you get him outside the building then drag him either north or south of
the door just to be safe then drop him. At this late stage of the mission you
may want to take his Outfit but I prefer to take the one inside the Locker
Room.

The reason you take the other Outfit instead of taking it from the Waiter is
that, if he somehow wakes up before you can leave, then you won't be
suspected because you never took the clothes off of him. Of course, if you do
everything right, then you should be long gone before he wakes up.

After changing clothes then get the Opium Pipe you dropped, Prep your Kitchen
Knife, then head back to the Bar/Opium Den area. If you happen to be running
when you get to the Bar then start walking when you get inside. Go to one of
the Opium Dens to find Andrei who should be laying on one of the beds.

Wait for the door curtain to settle down before doing anything or you may
risk being seen as you attack Andrei. Place the Opium Pipe on the nightstand,
bring out the Kitchen Knife, and swing it at him until kill him and the Info
Notice pops up.

Then, *VERY IMPORTANT*, drop the Kitchen Knife. One of the biggest mistakes
here is to forget to drop your weapon in the middle of the action and have
your cover blown when you go back upstairs. In addition, if you ran all the
way to the Den, then you will have the Guards turning in your direction and
may allow them to find Andrei's body when you leave.

After killing Andrei and dropping the Kitchen Knife then pick up the Opium
Pipe and head back upstairs to Sturrock's room (and get frisked by the Guard
again).

Enter Sturrock's room and drop the Opium Pipe near one of the girls at the
foot of the bed. While she is picking it up then head back to the dropped
Meat Cleaver, pick it up, and Prep it. Then head back to the girl who will be
smoking from the Pipe and then drop it. Pick up the Pipe and drop it next to
the other girl then stand at the very northwest corner of the bed next to
Sturrock and wait.

Eventually the first girl will pass out. When the second girl passes out then
quickly bring out the Meat Cleaver, kill Sturrock, and Holster the weapon. By
standing at the very northwest corner of the bed then you won't risk being
seen by him when you Kill him. If he sees you just as you Kill him then you
may get an Alert even if the Guards don't come running.

After Killing Sturrock then run back to the Locker Room and through the east
door that leads outside. Then run to the Exit Point to successfully complete
the mission.

As 47 sits in the entrance of the bathroom then he will continue to
hallucinate. He sees a Russian soldier standing at the other side of the room
and this takes 47 back to a mission in Siberia.

In this mission you have to kill two Targets, an international terrorist
named Fabian Fuchs and Commander Sergei Bjarkhov, a known weapons dealer. In
addition, you also need to destroy a submarine that is being use to make
radioactive dirty bombs.

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

There are twelve levels to the Map:

  >>Airport
  >>Mess Hall & Hangar
  >>Airport Service Tunnel
  >>Control Tower 1st Floor
  >>Control Tower 2nd Floor
  >>Tunnel
  >>Transport Ship 1st Floor
  >>Transport Ship 2nd Floor
  >>Submarine
  >>Warehouse
  >>Barracks
  >>Marine Base Outside

The Airport is where you start off at, inside the Cargo Plane, and that is
also where your Exit Point is located. There is a Power Switch at the
southwest corner and that is the Train you can ride through the Tunnel.

The Mess Hall and Hangar is where you can find one Point of Interest which is
in the Kitchen. The PoI is the Soup you can Poison with the Laxative that is
also found in the Kitchen. Fabian Fuchs can be found here in the Mess Hall.

The Control Tower 1st and 2nd Floors have nothing special. The Airport
Service Tunnel has a Guard and a Civilian that you can ambush if you choose
to do so. The Tunnel is what connects the Airport to the Marine Base Outside.
There are also a couple of Guards that patrol it.

The Marine Base Outside is a huge area that has the Warehouse, Barracks,
Submarine, and Transport Ship. The Power Switch to the east is for the Train.
The Barracks, Submarine, and Warehouse have nothing special to show on the
Map.

The Transport Ship 1st Floor has a small room with Guards that stand outside
a smaller room that is the Weapons Room. The Transport Ship 2nd Floor is
where Bjarkhov's office is located.

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

This is perhaps the one of the largest Maps in the entire "Hitman" series.
The Marine Base Outside is one huge Map by itself.

Although you can use the Fiber Wire to kill Fabian one of NightMare185's
contributors, Gregg Van Osdoll, recommended the use of the Fire Poker. I
recommend it as well since you can kill Fabian from the front with it which
is something you can't do with the Fiber Wire.

When you try to ambush him in the Restroom then you won't have much time to
get him before he reaches the toilet which is why the Fire Poker makes the
better weapon although it is weak like the Meat Hook from the previous
mission.

Even though you can Sedate a Civilian in the Airport Service Tunnel it is
best to nail the one that goes into the plane to take the Grocery Crates. It
is one less person to go in and out of the Mess Hall when you are trying to
ambush Fabian.

One last thing to note is dealing with the dead Guards when you blow up the
Submarine and to prevent the other Guards from finding them and getting
Alerts. I spent some effort finding ways to time things so you can prevent
unnecessary Alerts based on NightMare185's information.

  >>Xbox 360 and PS3 Versions
    *************************
      You can get two additional Accomplishments in this mission. You'll 
      definitely get {Poisonous} when Fabian eats the Laxative laden soup.

      The other one is {Firey Fire} which you *MAY* get by blowing up the 
      Sub. On my main GamerTag I got the Accomplishment for destroying the 
      vessel but on another one I use for testing I did not. If you don't get 
      it here then you will definitely get it in either "Beldingford Manor" 
      or in "The Wang Fou Incident".

      Taking the Fire Poker will add towards the {All Melee Weapons Found} 
      Accomplishment.

0===========================================================================0
|==========================| Mission Walkthrough |==========================|
0===========================================================================0

When you begin the mission then you will be behind some giant spools and
small crates. You will also be facing the rear of the Cargo Plane. A Civilian
will then enter the plane and start to take the Grocery Crates to the Mess
Hall. As you are waiting for him to enter then drop all of your guns, bring
out your Syringe, and wait for the Civilian to grab a Crate.

When he grabs a Crate and turn his back to you then run up behind him and
Sedate him. Then drag him back to where you started and Take Clothes. Then
run out of the plane, turn right, and go east towards the Mess Hall. You do
not need to bring a Grocery Crate. And don't worry about the Guards as you
run past them - they won't do anything.

When you get inside the Mess Hall then run forward towards the large flag. To
your left you should see a Guard standing by a Small Stove. To the right of
the Small Stove is a Fire Poker. Run to and grab the Fire Poker. After
grabbing the Fire Poker then turn east and *WALK* to the Restroom.

As you go through the Restroom door then Close Door so it will close
immediately after you go through it. What this will do is cause the Guard to
look northeast and away from the Kitchen which will make it much easier to do
what you need to do next. The next thing to do is to drop the Fire Poker in
the northeast corner of the Restroom. If you drop it while the door is still
open then the Guard may run up to you and admonish you.

Leave the Restroom then turn left and hug the wall as you move south. When
you reach the corner then turn right and walk to the Kitchen but angle
towards the left door. By going this route then you won't cause the Guard to
turn back towards the Kitchen. When you get inside the Kitchen then turn left
to find the Laxative on the counter.

You may also encounter the Cook. You can talk to the Cook if you want and he
will provide all of the information you need - most importantly the three
places to plant the Bombs to sink the Submarine.

The Laxative you just picked up is used on the Soup at the west side of the
Kitchen by the Stove. The Cook doesn't mind you spiking the Soup. But the
Guard by the Small Stove does. This is why it is important you turn him away
from the Kitchen - so he doesn't see you.

After Poisoning the Soup then retrace your steps back to the Restroom. Then
pick up the Fire Poker and get into the northwest corner by the door. When
Fabian opens the door later then you should be behind it. As you lay in wait
then the Cook will give Fabian the Poisoned Soup. Later, Fabian will head to
the Restroom as the Laxative takes effect.

After he goes through the door then close it, so the Guard doesn't see you as
he approaches the door, and Sneak behind Fabian. Get close to him and kill
him with the Fire Poker. Either you will stab him through the back or hit him
with it. If you hit him it will take two hits to kill him.

A good way to kill him is to wait until he actually sits on the toilet then
hit him two quick times with the Fire Poker.

After he is dead then drop the Fire Poker, Take Clothes, so you look like
Fabian, and Prep your Fiber Wire. Then exit the Restroom and you will find
the Guard who will take you to Bjarkhov. He will lead you to the Train that
will take you through the Tunnel. Get on the Train and activate it.

When you get to the other end then wait for it to completely stop and get off
on the platform. The Guard that came with you will stay behind. From here,
head south and towards the large Transport Ship. You will be stopped by a
couple of Guards at the ship entrance. They will tell you how to get up to
the 2nd Floor.

When you get inside then you will see three doors. The one ahead of you is
locked. The one to your immediate right leads into the small room with three
Guards and the Weapons Room where you will find the three Bombs you need to
sink the Submarine. The second door to the right is the one to go through.

Go through this door and follow the way until you get back outside and on the
main deck. There will be three Guards here - two close by and one at the very
end with a Dragunov Sniper Rifle. The two nearby Guards will then stop you
and frisk you for weapons.

Any guns or most other weapons will be removed from you. This is why you
should drop all of your guns and not to visit the Weapons Room prior to this.
After getting past these Guards then head to the only door on this deck which
leads into Bjarkhov's office. Go inside and he will greet you.

After the cutscene then follow him to the small table in the corner. When he
gets there then he will turn around and make some gestures. After he turns
back around then get into Sneak Mode, bring out the Fiber Wire, and Wire him.
Then go to his desk, grab the SG220 .S, and take the Master Key.

Go through the door at the south side of his office and follow the way until
you get back down to the 1st Floor and through the locked door. Now you can
go to the Weapons Room here on the ship - the Guards won't do anything as you
walk past them. However, one time I got my cover blown for no good reason so
I recommend acquiring the Bombs from the Submarine instead to prevent any
trouble.

Walk back outside and head to the Warehouse at the northwest corner of the
Marine Base. Go inside and make an immediate right and hug the wall. Go
forward through a wall gap and you will find the Radiation Outfit on the
floor. You will need this to get close to the Submarine.

It is important to point out that there is a Civilian that wanders the
Warehouse. For the most part he won't cause any problems but you should still
be careful around him or he will run to the Guards.

When you get the Radiation Outfit then go back outside and head south toward
the Submarine. The Submarine is connected by a large Pier that is patrolled
by four Guards - one that patrols the north side, two stationary ones near
the beginning of the Pier, and one that goes along the south end.

Walk past the Guards and and should get to a large tarp that covers the
entrance to the inside of the Submarine. Go down into the sub and head south
to find the three Bombs on a crate. Then go back out and head to the ladder
at the south end of the Pier. When you get to the end of it then drop down
and run along the ice sheet to plant the three bombs. Then get back up to the
Pier and to the north end of the Submarine.

Now it is time to blow up the Submarine. But, in order to obtain a
Silent/Perfect Assassin score, you have to time things just right and do
certain things during and after the explosion.

First off, you need to wait until the Guard that patrols the north side of
the Submarine to get far enough on the Pier so that he is either badly
wounded or killed in the explosion. If he survives unscathed then he will
find the bodies of the two stationary Guards and that will result in an
Alert.

The explosion will also cause the Guards at the Barracks to the north to run
down to investigate. They will also find the bodies when they get close
enough.

The cutscene of the explosion itself is "real time" in that what you see in
the cutscene is what is actually happening - not something that is
pre-rendered.

With that explained it is time to go through the necessary motions.

Walk to a point just northeast of the Submarine and look back at the Pier.
More specifically, look back at the lamppost at the beginning of it. You also
want to be close to the end of the patrolling Guard's route. He will stop at
a point north of the Submarine and head back to the Pier.

When he stops at the end of his route here then move so you line him up with
the lamppost. Then look just beyond the lamppost and to the chain-link fence.
You should see the fence posts for the fence. From the left of the lamppost
you should see three fence posts. The first fence post should be against the
tip of the Submarine.

When the patrolling Guard starts going back to the Pier then bring out the
Bomb Remote and wait for him to get between the *FIRST* and *SECOND* fence
posts then detonate. As soon as the cutscene starts then *IMMEDIATELY* get
out of it, Holster the Bomb Remote, and *RUN* north towards the Barracks.

You should now see four Guards running toward the Submarine - one straight
ahead, two clustered just to his left, and one to the far right. Ignore the
one on the right. Run to the Guard just ahead of you but just run real close
by him then angle to the left and run real close to the pair of Guards and
turn around and run back to the Pier.

What you've done is cause these three Guards to stop in their tracks. Then
they will just turn around and go back to the Barracks. The Guard you ignored
will be too far away to see the bodies.

But there is still one more thing to do first before you leave the Submarine
area.

As I said, you need to run back to the Pier. When you get back then keep an
eye on the one Guard you ignored, wait for him to turn around and head back,
then grab the body of the dead patrolling Guard and drag him back beyond the
bodies of the two stationary Guards.

Incredibly enough, despite the darkness, blizzard and distance, the Guard
that patrols the south side of the Barracks *CAN* see the body of the
patrolling Guard when he gets to the very southern edge of his route. When he
does then he will run to the bodies and you will get an Alert.

So by dragging the patrolling Guard's body further down the Pier then the
Barracks Guard won't be able to see it. He won't see the bodies of the
stationary Guards so you only need to drag this body a short distance.

After you drop the body then Take Clothes from one of the dead Guards and
grab one of the AK74s. Then run back to the east side of the area but be
careful to walk when you are close to other Guards. When you get back to that
side then go to the front of the Cargo Plane to successfully complete the
mission.

As 47 drifts in and out of consciousness then a doctor will enter the room.
He puts 47 on the table and begins to work on him. All of the noise makes 47
remember a peculiar mission in the English countryside.

At the large Beldingford Manor 47 must rescue the kidnapped son of the client
plus kill the two people responsible for his abduction, Lord Winston
Beldingford and Alistair Beldingford. Apparently there is going to be a
hunting party the following morning.

But 47 is going do some of his own hunting the night before.....

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

There are seven levels to the Map:

  >>Basement
  >>1st Floor
  >>2nd Floor
  >>3rd Floor
  >>Stables
  >>Stable Loft
  >>Park

The Park is where you where you start out in and has multiple Guards plus a
group of Dogs. There is a Power Switch on the west side of one of the large
barns at the southwest part of the Map.

The Manor itself is at the southeast part of the Map. There is a Hedge Maze
at the north part of the Map and it contains a Point of Interest which is the
trap door into the Basement. The Basement has a Point of Interest which is
the Whiskey Cask that you can Poison.

The 1st Floor also has multiple Guards wandering about. Alistair and his
drinking partner is at the east side of this Map. There is a Power Switch at
the southwest corner of the Map and that turns off the furnace that supplies
the hot water for the shower above.

The 2nd Floor has two Points of Interest. The first one, to the west, is the
Vial of Poison you can use on both Targets. The second one, further east from
the first one, is a secret door that you can use to access Winston's bedroom.
Winston himself goes between his bed and the Bathroom on the east side of the
Map.

The 3rd Floor has a Point of Interest that is the Chimney that you can place
the Gasoline Can in to create a Bomb which will kill Alistair and his hunting
friend (and maybe the butler too).

The Stables is where Giles Northcott is being kept. There are plenty of
Horses here too and some Guards. The Point of Interest is the Water Pool
(that is linked to all of the Horses) that you can poison with the Weedkiller
found in one of the other rooms in the Stable.

The Stable Loft has one Point of Interest which is the window that you can
use to snipe Winston with the Enforcer Sniper (once you get it from the
nearby Guard).

This mission was a pain to go through. This is a large multi-level Map with a
large manor with lots of rooms and hidden passages.

NightMare185 prefers to Sedate the Guard in the Basement and walk through the
Manor to get where he needs to go. But, because of the twitchy Guards, I
decided to find a way that reduces as many encounters with them as possible.

To this end I went and Sedated one of the two Guards at the beginning of the
mission then rescued Giles before going after the Beldingford's. You can also
run through the open areas because the darkness and rain makes it harder for
the Guards to see you so that helps a lot too.

And, in being able to run a lot through the early part of the mission, this
will allow you to have time to kill Winston and obtain the Hunter Outfit
before the sleeping Guard wakes up.

You can also go up the Ladder into the open window and walk past the
showering Maid in the upstairs Bathroom instead of turning off the Furnace
which will help a lot in reducing Guard encounters. Going through the Study
where Alistair and his hunting friend are at also greatly reduces Guard
encounters.

    *************************
      There are two new Melee Weapons for the {All Melee Weapons Found} 
      Accomplishment, the Pool Cue and Shovel. These are the last new ones 
      until the mission "Lee Hong Assassination". This walkthrough will 
      outline how to find both the Pool Cue and Shovel safely.

      You can also get the {Firey Fire} Accomplishment in this mission if you 
      did not get it in "The Bjarkhov Bomb". However, it may be best to wait 
      until the mission "The Wang Fou Incident" since you will be required to 
      use a bomb to destroy the Limo.

0===========================================================================0

When you start the mission then you will be behind a small ruined building
next to your Exit Point. Bring out your Syringe, turn around, and head south
toward the small set of stairs.

When you get to them then start Sneaking up and through the doorway then stop
and crouch at the top of the next set of stairs leading down. On the other
side of the stairs are a pair of Guards engaged in conversation. Angle your
camera so you are looking down the stairs and that the Guards are to your
right. Keep an eye on the top Guard.

After the conversation ends then two Guards will split up. One will go right,
and south, and the other one up, and east. As soon as the top Guard starts
going east then immediately get up, walk down, and follow him. He will walk a
little slower than you so you can catch up to him.

But don't walk too close or you will alert him. When you get to about a body
length behind him then start Sneaking. Bring out the Syringe and wait until
you get to the lamppost before Sedating him. Take Clothes then drag him to
the east side of the nearby tree so he isn't seen by anybody.

The next goal is the door at the southwest side of this area. From here, grab
the Double-Barreled Shotgun and run slightly southwest until you get near the
west wall. Then go south towards the door. Just before the door is a large
bush. Drop the Shotgun between the wall and the bush and run through the
door.

At this point you will start getting messages about Alistair ordering
Whiskey. This gives you a hint of one of the things you can do to him.

When you get to the door then run through it to enter the Tennis Court area.
Then run south to the next opening that leads to the large western Stable. At
this point the area in front of the Stable should be clear of Guards. Run
along the south side of the Stable.

Then continue along the side of the Stable and to the west side. Eventually
and you should see the Power Switch for the Satellite near the back entrance.
If you look at the Stables Map then you will see three Guards in a small
room. This room has the Stable Key that you need to free Giles who is being
kept prisoner in the south part of the Stables.

Disabling the Power Switch will draw all three of the Guards outside to
investigate.

There will also be a Civilian who is tending to the Stables. But, if you
stand too close to him for too long, then you will spook him and he will run
to the Guards. However, he still won't be too much of a problem here as long
as you minimize contact, keep moving, and away from him.

Disable the Power Switch then go inside the Stable. To the right of the door
you came through is a set of stairs leading up. Go up to the second platform,
about halfway up the stairs, then stop and turn around to look north at the
Water Tank. You should see the three Guards appear as they walk out to fix
the Power Switch.

When they are almost out of the Stables then just walk forward, drop down,
turn right, and go through the door. Now you need to run through the next
part of this mission. Run through the door on your right and grab the Stable
Key then run out and go into the main Stable area. Then run through the door
on your right to enter the south Stable area.

You will notice that the Horses will make all kinds of noise which will alert
the Guards. But, since the Guards are outside at this point, they will not
cause any problems. The Civilian may also be here tending to the Horses but,
as long as you keep running, then he should pose no problems either.

Run to Giles' cell and free him then run back out of the door and turn right
to exit the Barn. If you're pretty quick at this point then there should be
no Guards in the front of the Stable. By doing things this way then you won't
need to Poison the Horses with the Weedkiller to silence them.

From the Stable entrance then angle right and run southeast toward the
southwest corner of the smaller Stable. When you get to the corner then run
east along the south side of the Stable. This will allow you to move fast but
maintain distance from the Guards who are patrolling the nearby path.

Beyond the Stable is the part of the wall for the Manor. Continue east and
you should see a lamppost and a door. Walk through the door and you should
see some large sheets on a clothesline. The clothesline is connected to an
overhang with a Ladder that leads to the open window above.

At this point you may see a Guard arrive at a point under the overhang. Wait
for him to leave before climbing up the Ladder. Then go through the window
and you should see a dresser ahead of you. That dresser has the Vial of
Poison. Grab it then exit through the nearby door.

Ahead of you, and slightly to the left, is another door. Go through it to
enter the Bathroom where you will find a Maid taking a shower. Just walk past
her and to the large mirror which is the secret door leading to a hidden
passage going up to Winston's room.

98% of the time the Maid will stand there and admonish you. The other 2% she
will run off to warn someone. If this happens then you will probably need to
restart since that will usually result in a blown cover.

Go up to the passage to the next door then look at your Map. You should see
Winston. If you were pretty quick in getting here then he should be just
getting up to go to the Bathroom at the east side of the floor. When he
leaves and gets into the next room then Sneak out and head to his bed. There
is also a sleeping Maid here but, as long as you don't run, then she won't
cause a problem.

On Winston's nightstand is a glass of Milk. Poison it then Sneak back to the
secret passage. Wait for him to come back, take a drink of his Milk, then die
before Sneaking out. Another option, depending on your timing, is to
suffocate him or shoot him through the Pillow while he is asleep. The Pillow
can be found at the foot of the bed.

Regardless of method, when Winston is dead, then Sneak up to his body, grab
his Sawn Off Shotgun, and Sneak into the next room. When you get to the next
room then turn right to find a large bookcase.  However, that happens to be a
secret door leading into another passage. Go through this door and climb the
Ladder.

This will lead you to the 3rd Floor where you can find the Chimney you can
sabotage with the Gasoline you can find in either the Basement, by the car
outside the front door, or by the Furnace on the 1st Floor. That will kill
both Alistair and his hunting friend but will also alert Guards because of
the explosion so that is not going to be used here.

  >>Xbox 360 and PS3 Versions
    *************************
      Using the Gasoline to kill him will also unlock the {Firey Fire} 
      Accomplishment.

From the top of the Ladder then run to the next door, through the short
passage, and to the next door. Go through this door and you will be in the
north spiral stairwell which is at the northeast side of the Manor. Run down
the stairwell and to the next door. Go through the door, into the short
passage, and stop at the next door.

This door leads into a large bedroom with a sleeping Guest. Go into Sneak
Mode and enter the room. Head to the northwest corner where you will find the
Hunter Outfit. Change Clothes and Sneak back to the spiral stairwell.

*DON'T* pick up the Double-Barreled Shotgun. You will be more suspicious and
can blow your cover easily if you carry it while inside the Mansion. This is
the main reason to get the one near your Exit Point.

When you get back to the stairwell then go down to the next door. This door
leads into a large room north of the Study where Alistair and his friend are
enjoying themselves. When there are either no Guards in the room, or far away
from the door going into the Study, then go through this large room and into
the Study. Alistair and his hunting friend are too busy talking to care about
you so you are safe.

Go through the hidden door at the south side of the room and turn left to
enter the south spiral stairwell leading into the Basement. Go down the
stairwell then through the next two doors and you should see the Whiskey Cask
ahead of you. When you get there then wait first before doing anything.

There is a Guard that comes in and out of the west side of the Basement and
will stop near the center and near the Whiskey Cask. Wait for him to appear
and walk away before Poisoning the Cask. This will get Alistair to order some
Whiskey. After this then head back up to the 1st Floor and go west to the
base of the stairs near the front door.

  >>Xbox 360 and PS3 Versions
    *************************
      When you get to the base of the stairs then go up to the 2nd Floor to 
      find a Pool Cue for the {All Melee Weapons Found} Accomplishment. 
      Simply pick it up, wait a couple of seconds, then drop it. After that 
      then go back down the stairs.

Stand to the right of the front door and open it. If there is a Guard in the
doorway then go back up the stairs until he comes back inside. When the coast
is clear then walk out the front door and head back to the Stables area. Then
go back through the Tennis Courts. As you are doing so then you will get the
notice of Alistair's death. After going through the Courts then go to where
you dropped your Double-Barreled Shotgun.

  >>Xbox 360 and PS3 Versions
    *************************
      Don't pick up the Shotgun yet. Head east to the Hedge Maze. Go to the 
      center to find the Shovel for the {All Melee Weapons Found} 
      Accomplishment. Pick it up, wait a couple of seconds, then drop it and 
      go back to the Shotgun.

Pick up the weapon and head to the Exit Point to successfully complete the
mission.

As the doctor finishes his work on 47 then the wounded assassin begins to
drift back to a series of missions in Rotterdam, Holland.

In this mission 47 needs to acquire some incriminating photographs and kill
the leader of the biker gang, Rutgert Van Leuven, who currently has them. In
addition, 47 also has to kill an investigator that was sent in earlier to get
the photos because of fears that he was either captured or turned.

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

There are eight levels to the Map:

  >>Basement
  >>1st Floor
  >>2nd Floor
  >>Factory 1st Floor
  >>Factory 2nd Floor
  >>Outside
  >>Sheds
  >>Hideout

The Hideout is where you start. The Outside Map has two Points of Interest.
The first one, to the north, is the reporter you can Sedate to get his Outfit
and money. The second one to the south is a Shed that contains a Gate Switch.
There is also a Power Switch on the south side of the main building.

There are two Exit Points at the southwest and southeast corners of the
Outside Map. You can also find some Rat Poison between two dumpsters in the
alley at the north side of the south building.

The Basement has multiple areas of interest. At the northwest corner is where
you can find Klaas Teller and a Power Switch. There is also a Power Switch at
the south side of the floor.

There are also three Points of Interest. The first one, in the center room,
is the Firing Range. The second one, in the northeast corner, is where you
can find a Biker Outfit. The last one, in the southeast corner, is the
Weapons Room where you can find all sorts of firearms.

The 1st Floor has multiple rooms with Guards and Civilians. A Power Switch
can be found in the large room at the northwest corner. The Bar, where you
can find the Bartender who can lead you to Rutgert Van Leuven, is to the
east.

The 2nd Floor has multiple rooms. The lone Point of Interest is to the
southeast and that is the Safe that has the pictures. This is also Rutgert
Van Leuven's office and that is where he can be found most of the time.

The Factory 1st Floor has multiple rooms and Guards. The Factory 2nd Floor is
mostly empty save for a Guard and Civilian to the east. The Point of Interest
is where you can find a Biker Outfit.

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

NightMare185's strategy for this mission is pretty effective and I went with
that here. However, I made a few tweaks and observations to make it better.

0===========================================================================0
|==========================| Mission Walkthrough |==========================|
0===========================================================================0

When you start the mission then you will be in your Hideout. Immediately turn
around and run north through the door and through the next one to get
outside. Then run down the stairs and turn right, and north, when you reach
the street. Run forward to the alley then turn left to enter it.

As you run forward through the alley then bring out your Syringe. Run up to
the Reporter, who will be at the other end, and Sedate him. Grab the Envelope
and Take Clothes to change into his Outfit then drop all of your guns. From
here, run south to the gate.

Wait for the gate to open and walk through. The Guard nearby will stop you so
you can be frisked - this is why you need to drop your guns. After being
frisked then walk past the shed and turn left. Here you will see a large
overhang. Run up the stairs leading to it and go through the double doors on
the east wall under the overhang.

Then run through the next room and go through the next set of double doors to
enter a larger room with chairs and tables. Angle to your right to find a
bike. Not far from it is another set of double doors. Run to and through them
then turn left to find a single door. Run through this door and turn left to
find the Bar. Go and talk to the Bartender.

  >>Xbox 360 and PS3 Versions
    *************************
      If you didn't get a Pool Cue from the previous mission then quickly 
      grab one from the nearby Pool Tables and drop it for the {All Melee 
      Weapons Found} Accomplishment.

After talking to him then walk close to the door you just came from.
Eventually he will come through another door and you will need to follow him.
He will also give you a VIP Keycard which is used to access restricted areas.
Follow him until you reach a large tattooed Guard. At this point the
Bartender will stop. Now go around the *RIGHT* side of the Bartender and walk
to the Guard. The Guard will stop you so you can be frisked.

The reason to do things this way is that a patrolling Guard will come through
the double doors nearby if you were fast in getting to this point. If you
position yourself wrong then he may push you away from the Guard while he is
searching you. If that happens then you will blow your cover even though it
wasn't your fault that you moved. Of course, that is pretty lame.

After being frisked then go through the double doors then wait at the bottom
of the stairs for the Bartender. Follow him upstairs and to Rutgert Van
Leuven. After the cutscene then head to the Safe but stay close to the chair.
When he turns his back to you then get into Sneak Mode, bring out your Fiber
Wire, and Wire him.

Grab the Safe Combination in case you kill him before he opens the Safe. Grab
the Gold Desert Eagle and the Envelope (if you want to be greedy). Open the
Safe and grab the Pictures. This completes two of your objectives. Now you
need to kill Klaas.

Run back to the stairs and stop just before you get to the 1st Floor. If you
are fast then you should see the Bartender go through the double doors
leading back into the large room. Stay here and wait for the patrolling Guard
to come through the door. After the doors close then follow him but not too
closely. When you get to the base of the stairs then look east around the
corner.

Wait for the Guard to turn left at the next corner then run to it and stop
when you get there. Look north left around the corner. You should see the
patrolling Guard with his back to you. When he gets a few steps ahead then
quickly run through the door nearby to enter the Weapons Room.

Once inside then you will get the cutscene of Klaas. Immediately get out of
it and look through the Keyhole. There will be a Guard heading south along
this hallway. When he passes then open the door and look south. He should be
nearing a door going outside. When he gets a few steps away from you then
quickly run north to the next corner and look left around it. When the coast
is clear then quickly run through the nearby door.

Here you will find three bodies. Apparently there was a fight and nobody
lived. But one of the bodies has a Biker Outfit you can use. Take Clothes
from it and leave the room. Run west to where Klaas is, turn on the power to
kill him, then run back out. This will complete your last objective

From here, head back to the Weapons Room. Grab a Sawn Off Shotgun and a
Magnum 500 then leave and turn left. Go through the door in front of you then
walk up the stairs and turn right past the Guard stationed here. Then angle
southeast and walk past the Power Switch.

The goal is the Shed at the entrance. However, you can't walk through the
gate - it is closed and the Guard inside the Shed is the only person that can
open it. But you can still go through this gate. You just have to wait for a
little bit. Go to the back of the Shed and stand at the northwest corner.

After about a minute or so the Reporter you Sedated will wake up and run
through the gate thus opening it up in the process. You should also get a
notice about a suspicious reporter but you are already out of that Outfit so
you are safe. When the gate opens then just walk through it and head south
toward the Exit Point to successfully complete the mission.

47's next mission in Rotterdam is to kill an international arms smuggler
named Boris Ivanovich Deruzhka who is trying to get a nuclear device from the
biker gang you dealt with earlier.

However, the local Police are onto him and want to take him alive. The client
does not want that to happen. So now you need to infiltrate the ship and kill
Boris before it is stormed by the SWAT team. Not exactly a Dutch treat.....

There are thirteen levels to the Map:

  >>Outside
  >>Strip Bar Basement
  >>Strip Bar 1st Floor
  >>Strip Bar 2nd Floor
  >>Police Station 1st Floor
  >>Coaster Below Deck
  >>Coaster 1st Floor
  >>Coaster 2nd Floor
  >>Coaster Bridge
  >>Warehouses 1st Floor
  >>Warehouses 2nd Floor
  >>Tunnel
  >>Bypass Corridor

The Outside Map is where you start and has several things to note. There is a
Point of Interest to the west which is a Small Shed that has a Worker Outfit
you can change into.

There is also a Power Switch to the east that you can use to disrupt the
television inside the Guard Shack at the entrance to the Police Station. In
addition, this Map has multiple Guards, on or near the Coaster, and multiple
Cops.

There is also a Sewer Hole to the south that you can use to enter the
underground Tunnel to access the Warehouses.

The Strip Bar also has several Points of Interest. The first one, inside the
Strip Bar Basement, is some Whiskey that you can Poison one of the Workers in
the Bar with. It also has a wandering Guard.

The Strip Bar 1st Floor is where you will find some Guards (Bikers) and
Civilians (Workers) having a good time. The Strip Bar 2nd Floor has a Point
of Interest which is the Rat Poison you can use to Poison the Whiskey that is
found in the Basement.

The Police Station 1st Floor has a Point of Interest which is the Police
Outfit that you can use to walk through some of the harbor area. There is
also two dogs in the south room but you won't need to worry about them.

The Coaster Below Deck is where you can find Boris in the first part of the
mission. He will come up to the upper decks when the car with the bomb
arrives at the ship. The remaining floors of the Coaster have no other
objects of interest but Boris' room is on the 2nd Floor.

The Warehouses 1st Floor contain multiple Guards and Police. Each of the
buildings have a Sewer Hole that leads to the Tunnel below. The Warehouses
2nd Floor has two Points of Interest. The first one, in the north Warehouse,
is where you can find an M4 Carbine and ammo. The second one, in the center
Warehouse, is where you can find a Guard Outfit.

The Bypass Corridor is where you can go from the harbor area to the back of
the Strip Club.

| This is the only mission that the M4 Carbine and the first of three       |
| missions that the M60 appear in.                                          |
|                                                                           |
| Acquiring the M60 in this mission is difficult. The problem with this     |
| weapon in this mission, as well as in the mission "Slaying a Dragon", is  |
| that the weapon is held by somebody in a moving Helicopter. And to make   |
| things harder still you must shoot that person in a very dark             |
| environment.                                                              |
|                                                                           |
| Although you can get the M60 quite easily in the later mission "Lee Hong  |
| Assassination", if you want this weapon early, then you will have to      |
| bring the Sniper Suitcase with you after you complete the mission         |
| "Traditions of the Trade".                                                |
|                                                                           |
| Drop the Suitcase along with your other weapons in the Small Shed. After  |
| you kill Boris then retrieve your weapons and Police Outfit then go to    |
| the Police Sniper on the roof of the south Warehouse. Thankfully there is |
| a Ladder from the Warehouse 2nd Floor that you can use to get at him and  |
| his R93 Sniper.                                                           |
|                                                                           |
| After Wiring the Sniper and changing clothes then you need to use the     |
| W2000 to shoot the Cop holding the M60. The problem here, in addition to  |
| moving around, is that most of the Helicopter's flight path is over       |
| water. Shoot the Cop over the water and the weapon is lost. So you must   |
| shoot him when he is over land, either to the north or south ends of the  |
| flight path.                                                              |
|                                                                           |
| To further complicate things the Helicopter will stop for a few seconds   |
| which will make the officer easier to hit but that point is over the      |
| water. So you can't shoot him there.                                      |
|                                                                           |
| The best angle of attack is to shoot at the Chopper when it is at the     |
| south side of his circular flight path and aim near the center. Hopefully |
| you should be able to hit the Cop and have the weapon drop over either    |
| the Ship or on land.                                                      |
|                                                                           |
| Although shooting him in this dark environment is hard the use of the     |
| W2000 makes this easier than by just using the R93. You have a better     |
| scope with a wide view plus rapid fire capability. If you manage to bring |
| down the weapon then place the R93 Sniper in the Suitcase and retrieve    |
| the M60.                                                                  |
|                                                                           |
| When you have the weapon then just run to the Exit Point because holding  |
| the M60 will blow your cover. The SWAT Outfit you took from the sniper is |
| armored and will provide excellent protection from gunfire as you make    |
| your run to the end.                                                      |
|                                                                           |
| Even if you're not interested in acquiring the M60 at this time you still |
| need the Sniper Suitcase to smuggle the R93 Sniper out.                   |
|                                                                           |
| As for some of the other weapons:                                         |
|                                                                           |
| For the M4 Carbine, after you kill Boris, then head to the Tunnel instead |
| of going back north. Then wait at the Ladder leading into the north       |
| Warehouse. After the SWAT leave to attack the ship then climb up the      |
| ladder and head to the small room with the SWAT on the Warehouse 2nd      |
| Floor.                                                                    |
|                                                                           |
| Stay outside the room and wait for him to head to a large console then    |
| Sneak up behind him and Sedate him. Then Change Clothes and grab the M4   |
| Carbine off of the nearby desk. You can take this weapon along with the   |
| R93 if you want. After obtaining the weapon then walk out the north door  |
| and to the Exit Point.                                                    |
|                                                                           |
| As for the GK17 you can safely obtain it during your initial run-through. |

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

Although NightMare185's strategy, which involves luring an Cop to a Power
Switch for ambushing and using the Tunnel to access the Warehouses, was
effective I found a couple of ways to improve upon it.

First, I found that, with proper timing at the beginning of the mission, you
can actually get the Police Outfit from the Police Station without too much
hassle. Second, I found a way to skip the tunnel to save time when going
after the Guard Outfit.

And time is important because you have to kill Boris and get away from the
immediate area before the SWAT storm the Ship. Preferably you should be near
the Exit Point when they start their attack.

On the PS2 version they may find dead bodies on occasion and this will
prevent a perfect run so every bit of speed counts in this regard. However, I
haven't had this problem on the other versions.

And there is nothing you can do to delay their attack - stopping the bomb
from reaching the ship doesn't work.

  >>Xbox 360 and PS3 Versions
    *************************
      If you collected all of the Shotguns and earned the Sawn Off Shotgun 
      Dual from the previous mission then you will get the {All Shotguns 
      Collected} Accomplishment when you begin this one.

0===========================================================================0
|==========================| Mission Walkthrough |==========================|
0===========================================================================0

When you start the mission then you will be at the north side of the Outside
Map by your Exit Point. Immediately start running south when you begin.
Continue running south until you reach the water's edge then turn right and
continue running forward. Here you will see the gates for the harbor entry
and Police Station.

You should see a Guard Shack to your right, the main building to your left,
and a couple of large trucks to the right with a Cop standing near them.
However, straight ahead of you, is a gate that you can open to allow you
quick passage into the Police Station.

Run to the gate, open it, then run up the stairs and into the Police Station.
Once inside then continue running forward. At this point the Cop by the
trucks outside will give chase. When you get inside then you should see a Cop
walking into the room to your left. But, as you near this door, he should
have his back to you as you run past him.

When you get to the hall junction then turn left and run to the door that
leads to the Locker Room. When you get inside then run to the Police Outfit
sitting on one of the benches then Change Clothes and grab the GK17 nearby.

If you do everything correctly then the Cop from outside will give up the
chase then walk into the room with the other Cop. After you Change Clothes
then walk back out of the Police Station the same way you came in. When you
get outside then angle left towards the large trucks. Run to the north side
of these trucks. To your right you will also find an overhang. Under this
overhang is the door that enters into the Bypass Corridor.

After you get past these trucks then continue running forward, and west,
toward the Small Shed with the Worker Outfit. As you near the building then
you should find another Cop doing a long counterclockwise patrol route that
goes near the Shed. Angle your approach so you can get behind the building.
Go north along the west side of the Shed and stop at the corner. Wait for the
Cop to walk east away from it before entering.

When you get inside the Shed then you should find the Worker Outfit on the
desk. Change Clothes and drop all of your guns. The Worker Outfit will allow
you safe access to the guarded area but it won't allow you onto the Ship. You
need the Guard Outfit and that is in one of the nearby Warehouses.

After changing clothes then quickly exit the Shed and run south alongside the
west side of the building and towards some large container crates. When you
get to the chain-link fence then turn left and toward the two Guards. When
you get near them then stop running and start walking. If you run up to them
then they will fire on you.

When you get to them then you will need to stop so you can be frisked for
weapons. After that then run south and angle left so you can get close to the
Warehouse to your left. Turn left at the corner and you should see a door to
your left. Enter the door and you should be in a small room at the southwest
corner of this building.

Inside this Warehouse are two Guards. One does a north-south route along the
west side and the other does a north-south route on the east side. Go north
and through the next door to enter the main area of the building then turn
right and angle southeast toward the south wall. When you get to the south
wall then run east to the stairs that lead up to the 2nd Floor.

When you get up to the 2nd Floor then run north until you find the Guard
Outfit on a small crate. Change Clothes then run back south, down the stairs,
back to the south wall, and run west towards the small room then quickly go
through it and back outside.

Once you are back outside then run southwest towards the Ship. Stop running
when you get near the Guard at the ramp then walk past him and onto the main
deck. When you get onto the deck then turn right and proceed north. Run when
you can but walk when you get near Guards.

When you get to the north side of the Ship then you should see a Ladder that
leads up to the 2nd Floor. Go up the Ladder but stop halfway up. There is a
Guard that does a clockwise route along the 2nd Floor. If you see him then
wait for him to pass then climb up and proceed forward through the door ahead
of you. Stay behind but not too close to the Guard.

Proceed through the next door that goes back outside then follow the walkway
to the next door. After going through the door then you should see a single
door to your right. This is Boris' room. He won't be here at this point in
the mission but that is okay.

Enter the room and turn left to find the bunk and a large wooden closet. Get
next to the closet, bring out your Fiber Wire, and wait. Eventually Boris
will enter the room and hunch over his desk. Sneak up behind him and Wire
him. Then grab his Magnum 500 and quickly leave the room then turn right.

When you get back outside then head back to the Ladder leading down to the
main deck. Once back down then head back to the ramp running when you can.
Halfway down the ramp then stop running and start walking so you can get past
the ramp Guard again. When you get safely past him then start running again
and head north to the two gate Guards.

Run between them and angle northwest so you can get behind the Shed. Go north
along the west side of the building, run around the corner, and quickly get
back inside. At this point the patrolling Cop is heading back towards the
Shed and although it may look like he may see you enter you'll be okay. Once
you're back inside then grab all of your guns, especially the GK17, Change
Clothes back into the Police Outfit, and leave.

From here then run east back through the entrance, while dodging Cop patrols,
and turn north towards the Exit Point. Then continue running as fast as you
can until you reach it and successfully complete the mission. By the time you
get there then the SWAT will have just started their attack and well before
they find any bodies to mess up your score.

As the still groggy 47 pulls the needle out of his leg then he is pulled back
to another mission from his past.

Here, in Budapest, 47 needs assassinate two people and make off with a
Chemical Bomb that is set to detonate during a major peace conference. The
people you need to kill are Franz Fuchs, a major terrorist (and one of 47's
"fathers"), and Fritz Fuchs, his brother.

Because of the peace conference security is pretty tight. But, then again,
they haven't had to deal with Agent 47.....

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

There are four levels to the Map:

  >>Outside
  >>1st Floor
  >>2nd Floor
  >>3rd Floor

The Outside Map is where you start. The Exit Point is on the east side of the
area.

The 1st Floor is where you will find multiple Police and two Point of
Interests. The left Point of Interest is where you can easily kill Fritz
Fuchs by turning the steam handle in the Sauna. The right Point of Interest
is where you can find a Kitchen Knife embedded in the wall.

The 2nd Floor has two Points of Interests. The left one is where you can find
the Whiskey you can Poison Fritz with. The Bottle of Poison can be found in
the room with a sleeping drunk Civilian next to the standing Cop at the top
of the main stairs on the east half of the 2nd Floor.

The right Point of Interest is where you can find the Flower Box that
contains the SPAS 12 Shotgun.

The 3rd Floor also has two Point of Interests. The one in the northwest
corner of the floor is the X-Ray Room where you can find the Chemical Bomb.
The one at the southeast part of the floor is where you can find the switch
to turn off the Metal Detectors. The X-Ray Room is the part of the Dentist
office that Fritz works at.

Just like the original "Codename 47" mission this is based on this is a
pretty straightforward affair. In the original version of that mission I went
after Fritz first. But, because Fritz sits in the Pool a long time in this
version of the mission, I decided to go after Franz first and found that I
could shorten the time I had to wait for Fritz to enter the Sauna so I can
kill him.

  >>Xbox 360 and PS3 Versions
    *************************
      There are three Accomplishments that can only be done in this mission 
      plus one that can be done in other missions but is best done here. 
      These can be done all in one run:

        --47 Kills in a Mission
          =====================
            There are a total of 54 people in this mission including your 
            Targets. However, the Targets don't count so it is actually 52 
            people. You need to spare five people in order to get this 
            Accomplishment. For starters, spare the unconscious Civilian at 
            your starting point. That's one.

            Then spare the sleeping Civilians in Rooms 199, 208, 305, and 
            315. That's five. Kill everybody else. I highly recommend 
            bringing the SG220 S. because you can get lots of ammo from the 
            Guard's GK17s.

        --Ghost Buster
          ============
            When you start your 47 Kills run then quickly drop all of your 
            weapons and grab the Conference ID. Quickly run to the front 
            entrance then into the hallway leading to Room 108 where you get 
            the Police Outfit. Quickly Pick the Lock, bring out your Fiber 
            Wire, and run through the door. When you get to Room 108 then you 
            should see a ghostly figure.

            Quickly get up behind him and Wire him before he disappears 
            through the wall. If you do this correctly then you will see 47 
            go into his strangle motion even though it looks like he's 
            choking nothing. The Accomplishment should pop up after he 
            finishes.

            It is important to note that the Ghost only appears near the 
            beginning of the mission. This is why you have to get here 
            quickly. He can only be "killed" by the Fiber Wire and that he 
            doesn't count as a Kill so you don't have to make any changes 
            during your run.

        --Floater
          =======
            After Wiring the Ghost (or failing to do so) then Sneak into Room 
            108 and get the Police Outfit. Then run to the west door leading 
            into the Pool and Pick the Lock when it is safe. When you get to 
            the Pool then Sneak up to and Wire the nearby Cop (keep your 
            Fiber Wire out). Then go to the south end of the Pool and gently 
            drop in.

            Then Sneak up to Fritz's head and Wire him. However, instead of 
            strangling him then you will get a cutscene of 47 attacking and 
            drowning Fritz. As weird as it sounds using the Fiber Wire is the 
            only way to drown him. After the Accomplishment pops up then head 
            outside to grab your weapons and back to the Hotel to kill 
            everybody except those listed.

        --Termination
          ===========
            After killing everybody in the Hotel then head to the Floral Shop 
            at the west side of the 2nd Floor. Pick the Lock to enter and 
            find the Flower Box on the counter. Pick it up then Equip it to 
            retrieve the SPAS 12 Shotgun and unlock the Accomplishment.

            Afterwards then go and get the Bombcase, retrieve the Chemical 
            Bomb, and finish the mission to unlock the {47 Kills in a 
            Mission} Accomplishment.

|==========================| Mission Walkthrough |==========================|
0===========================================================================0

When you begin the mission then you will be at the southwest corner of the
Outside area. Pick up the Conference ID and drop your Sniper Suitcase (and
any guns you might have). Nearby, to your left, is a note from Diana
informing you of the Flower Box. The reason you need to drop all of your guns
is because of the metal detectors that are found at several places inside the
Hotel.

From your starting point, run to the Hotel entrance and let the Cop check out
your ID. After that then enter the Hotel Lobby. In front of you is the main
stairway leading up to the 2nd Floor. However, instead of going up the
stairs, turn right and go into a hallway.

This will lead you to the east wing. You will then enter a hallway with an
Elevator. Go through the double doors by the Elevator and you will see
another double door with a sign indicating that the rest of the wing is
closed.

There is also a Cop that patrols this hallway. He will stop at this double
door, turn around, head west and through the Lobby, stop at another double
door at the northwest corner of the Lobby, then turn around and come back.
Wait for the Cop to come to this door, turn around, go through the other
doors, and let those doors close before you go and Pick the Lock of the
locked door.

After you Pick the Lock do not go through the door. I am only making things
easier for later. After Picking this Lock then turn around and head back into
the Lobby. Do not go up the stairs. Instead head west past them and turn
north. Here you will find one of the two doors that lead into the Pool and
Sauna area. The one to the east is guarded but the west one is not.

The Cop that patrols the hallway to the east also goes near this door. When
he walks away then Pick the Lock of this door but don't go through it - again
I am making things easier for later.

After doing this then you can finally go up the stairs and head east. The
next task is to find a wandering Room Service person. Find him then follow
him until he gets to a room. He will then enter the room to service it. Close
the door he opens and get the Master Key. This will allow you to enter any
room in the Hotel.

Head to the east side of this floor to find a Guard standing in front of Room
202. This is where Franz is staying. But you need to find a way in. Go into
Room 203 and onto the balcony then look right. Wait for the Guard that
patrols Franz's room to come out here then head back in and Jump to Balcony.
Then Sneak in, bring out your Syringe, and Sedate him.

If you thought about changing clothes with him to make it easier to get past
the Guards in the later part of this mission, don't bother. Wearing the Guard
Outfit won't fool them and you will automatically blow your cover.

After Sedating the Guard then bring out your Fiber Wire, Sneak into the
bathroom, and Wire Franz. But you need to get at his Chemical Bomb. The
Bombcase to carry it is next to the bed. Grab it then go back into Room 203
and back into the hallway.

Run back down to the Lobby and turn left to go towards the East Wing and the
door you had to Pick earlier. Wait for the patrolling Cop to be away from the
door before going through it. Also make sure that there are no Civilians
sitting nearby either just to be safe.

When the coast is clear then go through the door then turn left and go
through the next double door then drop the Bombcase in this hallway. You are
now in a haunted section of the Hotel. Turn right then turn left to find a
couple of hotel rooms. Go to the door for Room 108 and look through the
Keyhole.

Inside the Bathroom for this room is a Cop who is taking a shower. However,
he will stand at the south side of the Bathroom and can see you if you try to
enter. Wait for him to head north and go into the shower before entering.
When the coast is clear then Sneak into the room and change into the Police
Outfit on the bed.

It should be pointed out that wearing the Police Outfit will allow you to go
through metal detectors when carrying guns. This is because Cops are supposed
to be carrying weapons and this Outfit will give you a free pass to carry
guns and access most areas. However, if you run too close to other Cops then
you run the risk of having your cover blown.

Sneak back out then head back into the Lobby but make sure that the
patrolling Cop has headed west away from the door first. The next goal is
Fritz. Go back to the northwest entrance to the Pool and wait for the
patrolling Cop to be away from it before entering.

After you enter then turn left to go through another double door. You will
then enter the shower area of the central Pool. In the main Pool area itself
is a Cop that stays at the south part of the area and should cause no
problems. Check your Map to see where Fritz is at.

If he is in the Sauna then run around the north end of the Pool, enter the
Sauna area, and turn the handle to kill him. Then go inside and grab the key
to the X-Ray Room. However, if he isn't in the Sauna, then go into the Sauna
area at the west side of the Pool, get close to the Sauna door and rotate
your Camera so you can see through the door to the Pool, and wait. The
problem is that you are probably going to wait a *LONG* time.

You see, when Fritz leaves the Sauna, then he will head to the dressing room
to change and exit into the Lobby. Then he will head to the Bar on the 2nd
Floor for awhile (and you can Poison him through the Whiskey if you wish to
do so).

After that then he will head back down to the changing room and back into the
Pool where he will float for awhile. And he will be floating for a long time
before he decides to go into the Sauna again. The reason to hide by the Sauna
door is that he will freak out if he gets up and sees another person nearby -
even though you are dressed as a Cop. This will blow your cover and screw
everything up.

However, if you do things fast enough, then he will still be in the Pool and
you won't have to wait (and hide) as long for him to enter the Sauna. The
reason the Sauna can kill Fritz is because he has a weak heart. This
information was given to you by Fritz in the original "Codename 47" version
of this mission but not in this version.

Once you kill him and grab the X-Ray Room key then go back into the Lobby the
same way you came. Then go back to Room 108 and change back into your Suit.
This will make it easier to run through the Hotel to do what you need to do
next. After getting back your Suit then go and reclaim the Bombcase. From
here, head back into the Lobby and go up the stairs to the east side of the
2nd Floor.

Head for the stairs at the north side of this floor and go up the the 3rd
Floor. When you get to the top of the stairs then turn left and turn left
again at the corner and through the double doors.

Immediately after you get through these doors then you should see a single
door to your right with a green light above it. This is the Roof Access. Go
through this door and you will see a large dome-like structure with windows.
This is the roof for the Pool.

Go around to the other side of the structure and you should see two windows.
Get close to the left window and look through the right window. Look for a
Guard in this window. When he turns around and leaves then Sneak through your
window and through the double doors to the left. Then turn right, proceed to
the next double door, and look through the Keyhole.

There is another Guard that patrols the room next to the X-Ray Room where the
Chemical Bomb is at. Wait for him to cross from right to left before opening
the door and Sneaking inside. Head northwest towards the sink and stop
between the sink and the door. The Guard should be at the window very close
to you. When he turns right then Sneak into the X-Ray Room.

Pick up the Chemical Bomb, Equip it (using the Inventory Menu) to put the
Bombcase in your right hand, and look through the Keyhole. Wait for the Guard
to be in front of the door. When he turns his back to you and walks away then
Sneak back out and through the double doors again. Then go back to the first
set of doors and look through the Keyhole.

Wait for the Guard to appear in the Keyhole. When he turns right and moves
east then Sneak back in and go back through the window. After you safely get
back onto the rooftop then run back down to the Lobby and go outside. Run
back to your starting point to retrieve the Suitcase which will place it in
your left hand. Then run to your Exit Point with both cases to successfully
complete the mission.

As 47 recuperates from his wound he begins preparations to leave. However,
the French Police are rapidly moving in and the sounds of a Police helicopter
bring 47 back to a series of missions that took place in Hong Kong.

The main Target is Lee Hong, the very powerful leader of a Chinese Triad
called the Red Dragon and another of 47's "fathers". However, he is too
powerful to go after right away. So the plan is to start a war between the
Red Dragon and another powerful triad, the Blue Lotus. In addition, Lee Hong
is also protected by the Police and that protection needs to be removed
before 47 can move in for the kill.

The first part of this plan is to assassinate a Red Dragon Negotiator who is
meeting with a Blue Lotus Negotiator inside a Park.

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

There are six levels to the Map:

  >>Outside
  >>1st Floor
  >>2nd Floor
  >>3rd Floor
  >>4th Floor
  >>5th Floor

The Outside Map is where you start and has one Point of Interest which is the
Sewer Hole to the south of your starting position. This Sewer hole contains
the Rat Poison that you can use to spike the Tea that the Red Dragon
Negotiator drinks.

There are two Exit Points - one to the west and the other to the east. Your
Target will be in the Park in the central part of this Map. A Helicopter,
that appears if the the Blue Lotus are attacked, and with an M60 wielding
Guard, will fly in circles above the area.

East of the Park is an apartment complex that you can enter and has the
remaining five Map levels. The 2nd Floor has a Point of Interest which is
where you can obtain a Bomb and Bomb Remote - and is also a sniping point for
shooting into the Park.

The 4th Floor has two Guards and is also a sniping point. The 5th Floor has a
Point of Interest which is the Gardener Outfit which will allow you safe
entry into the Park - that is if you do not have any guns on you when the
Guards frisk you.

0===========================================================================0
| This is one of the other missions that the M60 appears in. And, like with |
| "Deadly Cargo", the weapon is being held by a Guard in a moving           |
| Helicopter.                                                               |
|                                                                           |
| But it is much easier to acquire here than in the previous mission. For   |
| starters, the Helicopter doesn't travel over water and you can nail the   |
| Guard from some good cover. And you also have the advantage of the        |
| silenced W2000 Sniper (inside the Sniper Suitcase) to quietly take him    |
| down.                                                                     |
|                                                                           |
| However, you need to kill some of the Blue Lotus before you can make him  |
| show up and they can kill you quickly with their AK74's. The M60 carrying |
| Guard is also pretty accurate with that weapon and he can cut you down    |
| quickly as well.                                                          |
|                                                                           |
| So you need to do things carefully in order to safely acquire the weapon. |
|                                                                           |
| When you go after the Rat Poison do not drop your weapons in the Sewer    |
| Hole. Instead drop them inside the room on the 5th Floor where you get    |
| the Gardener Outfit. Proceed with the Poisoning method but return to the  |
| 5th Floor room instead. Change back into your Suit, grab your guns (leave |
| the Sniper Suitcase for now), then go downstairs to the 4th Floor.        |
|                                                                           |
| Kill the Blue Lotus by the door with your Silenced Silverballer then      |
| carefully open the door and kill the Sniper by the window and shoot out   |
| the flickering light while staying in the hallway.                        |
|                                                                           |
| Then go downstairs and open the door then start shooting at the nearby    |
| Blue Lotus. The commotion will bring out the helicopter. Stay inside and  |
| go to the stairwell. Shoot at the Blue Lotus that come in, preferably     |
| with headshots to conserve your ammo.                                     |
|                                                                           |
| If there are too many then run up to the 5th Floor which will cause the   |
| survivors to stop chasing and go back out. Then go downstairs and acquire |
| GK17's and Micro Uzis.                                                    |
|                                                                           |
| When you have cleared out enough of the Blue Lotus then head back up to   |
| the 5th Floor and get your W2000 Sniper. Then go back to the 4th Floor,   |
| change clothes with the dead Blue Lotus then Sneak into the room with the |
| dead Sniper.                                                              |
|                                                                           |
| Keep crouched and look through the window on the right. You should see    |
| the helicopter flying about. However, it will pause at the northern end   |
| of his circular route and it will be through this window. This will give  |
| you an excellent opportunity to nail the M60 wielding Guard. The fact     |
| that you are in a darkened room (because you shot out the light earlier)  |
| and dressed as a Blue Lotus will definitely help.                         |
|                                                                           |
| Kill the M60 Guard and he will drop the weapon in the north side of the   |
| park. As a precaution, go to the window and look south through the other  |
| window to kill the Sniper on the building at the south side of the area.  |
|                                                                           |
| Then go into the Park and acquire the M60 (killing any Guard that gets in |
| the way). When you get the M60 then it becomes easier to get rid of any   |
| Guard that tries to stop you.                                             |
|                                                                           |
| However, if you do not wish to do any of this effort, then get one from   |
| the mission "Lee Hong Assassination" since it is laying in a couple of    |
| the Basement rooms.                                                       |
|                                                                           |
| Of course, because you have to kill most of the Blue Lotus to get at the  |
| M60, you should get a Micro Uzi for your collection here. If you decide   |
| to wait until the mission "Lee Hong Assassination" to acquire the M60     |
| then you can get the Micro Uzi in a later mission.                        |
|                                                                           |
| As for the W2000 Sniper, you can just safely run out of the area with the |
| Sniper Suitcase. You do not need to bring out the weapon.                 |

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

A couple of NightMare185's contributors, SeiurRighteous9 and Justin Dehart,
came up with a real nice, quick method of killing the Red Dragon Negotiator -
Poisoning the Tea he drinks with the Rat Poison found in one of the Sewer
Holes. However, I had to make a change due to the quirkiness of a nearby
Civilian.

0===========================================================================0
|==========================| Mission Walkthrough |==========================|
0===========================================================================0

When you start the mission then you will be at the west side of this area and
with your Sniper Suitcase. Turn right and run south to the Sewer Hole. Climb
down then turn left to find the Rat Poison. Get the Poison and drop your
Sniper Suitcase (and all guns) then climb back up.

When you get back to the top then turn left and get onto the street. Then
turn left again and follow the street east and turn left at the *SECOND*
three-way intersection. Head north and you should see a building with two
large green round lanterns. This is the apartment complex and the door inside
is between the lanterns.

Go inside and climb all the way to the 5th Floor then Pick the Lock of the
door closest to the stairs. Turn left when you get inside to find the
Gardener Outfit. Change into the Outfit and go back outside then head to the
*SOUTH* park entrance. Let the Guard frisk you then go into the Park.

The reason to go through the south entrance instead of the east entrance near
the Apartment Building is that there is a Blue Lotus Guard just inside the
park at the end of one of the small bridges. By going this route you can
outright avoid him.

And by going this way then you have a straight shot to the Tea Cart which is
at the Pagoda right by the bridge nearest to you. However, there is one thing
to do first before you Poison the Tea. At the southeast corner of the park is
a Gardener who is squatted down doing ground work. He will have his back to
the Tea Cart.

You would think that it would be okay to poison the Tea because he can't see
you this way. Unfortunately, about half the time he *CAN* see you do the deed
and he will run off to tell a Guard and things go bad from here. Now, if you
Poison the Tea and he continues to work, then great. If not, then you will
have to deal with him if and when you replay the mission.

You can't ambush him with the Syringe because he will always turn around to
face you. But you can still get him out of the way. You see, this Gardener
can be moved. You can't push him but you can spin him around. In addition,
when you step in front of him, he will get up, take three steps back, then
squat back down again. This will allow you to move him.

To spin him around run around him quickly and stop. He should stand up, turn
around a bit, then squat back down again. The goal is to move him behind the
big tree he is currently working near. Spin him around until his back is
facing northeast or southwest.

Then get in front of him and back him up a couple of times. Then spin him
around until his back is facing southeast. Back him up a few times to make
him go alongside the tree and near the wall corner. Spin him around until his
back is facing the direction you need to back him behind the tree.

Then back him up a couple of times to put him behind the tree. From here,
head to the Tea Cart. When you get onto the bridge then stop about halfway.
Do not stop by the Tea Cart or the Blue Lotus Negotiator may get suspicious.

The basic pattern of the Red Dragon Negotiator is that he will walk around
the Pagoda with the Blue Lotus Negotiator. After awhile they will stop and
the Blue Lotus Negotiator will go to talk to the Guard at the east bridge
while the Red Dragon Negotiator will pause for a bit.

Then, as the Blue Lotus Negotiator is talking to the Guard, the Red Dragon
Negotiator will go and sip some Tea from the Tea Cart. Then he will walk away
and wait for the Blue Lotus Negotiator to come back then the pattern repeats
itself.

The best thing to do is to wait for the Red Dragon Negotiator to drink the
Tea, wait for the Blue Lotus Negotiator to come back to him, then wait for
the both of them to walk to the north side of the Pagoda, and out of sight,
before you can Poison it.

When you are safely at the Tea Cart then look back at the Gardener. If you
can still see him then more than likely he can see you too. If this is the
case then go back to him and back him away once then head to the Tea Cart
when it is safe to do so. When you can no longer see him then you can safely
Poison the Tea.

I know this is a bit of work but it will save you some frustration if you
have to restart the mission because of him.

After Poisoning the Tea then walk south out of the Park. From there, run west
to the Exit Point. You won't be able to leave until the Red Dragon Negotiator
dies so stand next to the exit. When you get the status update message then
run into the Exit Point to successfully complete the mission.

The Blue Lotus Triad are afraid that Lee Hong has blamed them for the death
of his Negotiator. The Blue Lotus are planning to send an Emissary to Lee
Hong's Restaurant to apologize for the attack. In this mission 47 needs to
assassinate the Emissary and his Guards which will make it look like a
counter hit from Lee Hong. This will further destabilize the situation.

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

There are three levels to the Map:

  >>Restaurant 1st Floor
  >>Restaurant 2nd Floor
  >>Outside

The Outside Map is where you start and has several objects of interest. There
is a Sewer Hole near the center of the area and your Exit Point is at the
southeast part of this Map. There will also be multiple Guards around the
entrance of the Restaurant. There will also be two Blue Lotus members
stationed at the northeast corner of the Map.

You will also notice six Guards posted that appears to be in the Restaurant
but can be seen on the Outside Map. They are actually in the underground
tunnels but there is no Map for it in this mission.

The Restaurant 1st Floor Map has a multitude of Guards. The Point of Interest
is where the meeting takes place. The Restaurant 2nd Floor Map has a couple
of Guards and a Point of Interest. The PoI is where you can obtain a Bomb,
Bomb Remote, and a Red Dragon Outfit.

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

NightMare185's strategy is pretty much the best way to do things but made
some observations and changes to it. The biggest changes is a different
approach to acquire the Bomb, Bomb Remote, and Red Dragon Outfit and going
after Orthmeyer's Key.

Because you will also be returning to this area in the mission "Lee Hong
Assassination" you have to option of exploring the majority of the Restaurant
area after you have blown up the Limo. The reason is that most of this area
is unoccupied and dark. Finding your way around this area will help you out
later.

  >>Xbox 360 and PS3 Versions
    *************************
      If you didn't get is in either "The Bjarkhov Bomb" or "Beldingford 
      Manor" then you will definitely get the {Firey Fire} Accomplishment 
      when you blow up the Limo. And don't forget to go back to the mission 
      "Asylum Aftermath" after you complete this one to acquire the Mini Gun 
      and Dual Gold Desert Eagles.

0===========================================================================0
|==========================| Mission Walkthrough |==========================|
0===========================================================================0

When you start the mission then you will be at the east side of the Outside
area. From here, run to the Sewer Hole. Across from the Sewer Hole is a trash
dumpster. Go to the east side of this dumpster, look north towards the Sewer
Hole, and crouch.

Eventually the Limo with the Blue Lotus Negotiator will show up and park in
front of the Restaurant. A Civilian, the Chauffer, will head south towards
your position. Wait for him to appear and turn his back to you before making
your move. He is taking a piss and you are going to make him pay for it.

Bring out your Syringe, Sneak up behind him, and Sedate him. If he sees you
and runs off then another option is to stand just behind where he will stand.
He will approach you and warn you but will still stand in front of you. When
he starts his business then quickly Sedate him.

After Sedating him then Take his Clothes, drag him over to the Sewer Hole,
and drop him inside it. The next step is to get the Bomb and Bomb Remote
which is on the second floor of the Restaurant.

From here, head back east to the street and angle northwest to go under a
covered bridge. Continue heading east and you should see a large alley with
some steam vents to your left. Go into the alley and turn left when you get
near the end to find a large pair of gray doors. These doors lead to the back
doors of the Restaurant.

When you open these gates then you will then find three pairs of double
doors. Go through the ones on the left. When you go through them then you
will enter a dark room with lots of crates. Go through the gap in the crates
and turn left to find a set of stairs leading up.

When you get to the top of the stairs then do a 180-degree turn going right
then angle left when you get past the wall to find another set of double
doors. Go through these doors then turn left and go through another set of
doors then turn left again, go to the next set of doors, stop, and look
through the Keyhole.

You should see a patrolling Guard on the other side of this door. Wait for
him to approach the door then walk straight west away from it before making
your move. If he turns left then you will increase your chances of being
seen.

When he walks away from the door then Sneak through them and turn left. You
should see the door ahead of you. In the center of this room are dividers and
pillars that will shield you from the patrolling Guard. Sneak to the pillar
closest to the door you need to go through then stop and look west.

Wait for the Guard to appear and head north out of view again before
continuing to the door. Once inside this room then take the Bomb and Bomb
Remote from the top of the Safe. This room is also known as the Restaurant
2nd Floor Safe Room, or Guards Quarters Safe Room, in the later mission "Lee
Hong Assassination".

After acquiring the Bomb then head to the door leading outside, Pick the
Lock, and Sneak out then turn left. Follow the way and down the Ladder. It
should be noted that there is a Guard stationed near the door with his back
turned. Although you can go up the Ladder and Pick the Lock to gain entry as
a shortcut he may turn around and follow you so it is simply best to go the
long way to get the Bomb.

When you get back to the street then go to the Limo and Place Bomb. This will
get the Blue Lotus Negotiator to leave the Restaurant. After placing the Bomb
then head back east and towards where the two Blue Lotus are stationed. Go
back to the alley that leads to the back entrance of the Restaurant.

Stand at the south edge of the steam vent and look toward the telephone pole.
You should also see a Blue Lotus member standing at the left edge of the
pole. Across and left from the pole is the corner of a building.

Now the Blue Lotus Negotiator and the two Blue Lotus members by the Limo will
soon drive away. Interestingly enough they don't bother to notice that their
trusted Chauffer has gone missing and decide to leave without him.

Bring out your Bomb Remote and wait. After a short while you will get a
notice that the Targets are escaping. What you want to do is wait until the
front of the Limo touches the corner of the building then detonate the Bomb.
The resulting explosion will kill the three in the Limo and the two stationed
by the exit.

If you detonate too soon then the explosion won't kill everybody. This is why
you use the corner of the building - kind of like a "finish" line, as in
finishing off your Targets. However, this still leaves two within the
Restaurant itself.

To get rid of them you need to go back to the Guard Quarters Safe Room to get
the Red Dragon Outfit. Since you already unlocked the door to the Safe Room
then you can simply go back up the Ladder and Sneak through it.

Before I go after the last two Blue Lotus, I will go after Orthmeyer's Key
which will allow you to acquire the Mini Gun and Dual Gold Desert Eagles in
the mission "Asylum Aftermath".

After changing into the Red Dragon Outfit then look through the Keyhole of
the other door and wait for the Guard to walk away from it. Then walk out and
head to the Elevator in the center of this floor. Just southwest of the
Elevator is a double door. Go through this double door, down the stairs, up
the next set of stairs and turn right when you get to the top.

Find one of the two doors at the north side of this section of the Restaurant
to get outside. Then head down the bridge path until you get to the Mansion
entrance which is east of the ladder. Go through the entrance to enter the
darkened Mansion. You may want to use the Nightvision Goggles if it is too
difficult to see without them.

It is important to note that there is no Mansion Map for this mission so you
will have to kind of go blind when going through this building not just
because it is dark.

Once through the entrance then turn left and go through the double doors
ahead. Then go straight ahead to the single door then turn right to find a
set of stairs leading up. Go up the stairs, go through the double doors at
the top, and turn right. Then go through the next set of double doors.

To your left you should see a Safe and what appears to be a lighted office.
Go into this office and you should see Orthmeyer's Key on the desk. After
getting the Key then retrace your steps back to the Elevator on the 2nd
Floor. Get in the Elevator, Prep your Fiber Wire, and head down to the 1st
Floor.

When you get down to the 1st Floor then go forward through the door at the
end of this hallway. Then turn right and go through the first door on your
right. Proceed forward through the Restroom and through the next door. Then
turn right and proceed forward to enter the Restaurant area itself.

When you get through the round entrance then turn left and hug the left wall
as you proceed past the Guard standing next to a pillar. As you get past him
then he will turn but will be looking at the pillar.

Now Sneak toward to the two Blue Lotus. When you get near their room then one
of them should head toward you. If not, then move around until you get his
attention and make him go towards you. Sneak toward the very southwest corner
of this area. The Blue Lotus will walk up to you, scratch his head, and stand
there for a bit. As he is standing there then creep up and get against him.
Then he will turn around and walk away.

When he walks away then quickly bring out your Fiber Wire and Wire him. Oddly
enough, the nearby Guards won't see or hear anything. Sometimes though you
may have to cajole him into this corner. You can't get too far ahead of him
or he will turn away too soon. You have to keep him near as you Sneak to the
corner.

After killing this Blue Lotus member then drag his body into the corner you
started from then head to the other Blue Lotus. More than likely he will be
still seated in his chair. If he is then Sneak up behind him and Wire him. If
he gets away from the chair then Sneak east and get besides the pillar just
outside their room.

Then wait for him to approach you and walk away then Wire him the same way as
you did the other guy. Then drag him to the corner where the other Blue Lotus
member is and grab the Micro Uzi .S from either body.

After you kill the both of them then walk back the same way you came and
through the Restroom to the hallway then out through the back entrance of the
Restaurant. From here, head to the Exit Point to successfully complete the
mission.

A full-scale war between the Triads has now begun and that has upset the
Chief of Police who is on both Triad's payroll. He has called a truce meeting
to be held in a small restaurant on neutral ground.

For this mission you need to not only kill the Chief of Police but make it
look like it was done by the Red Dragon which will implicate Lee Hong
further. Leaving behind a Red Dragon amulet will help in this cause. To
acquire the Red Dragon Amulet you must intercept and kill the Red Dragon
Negotiator before he can reach the Restaurant.

If the mission is successful then the Police protection will be removed and
Lee Hong will be easier to assassinate.

There are four levels to the Map:

The Outside Map is where you start out and has three Point of Interests. The
leftmost one is a Taxi you can shoot to activate the alarm for a possible
distraction. The one in the center is a Sewer Hole where you can find the Rat
Poison that you can use on the Targets using the Serving Tray. The one on the
right is another Taxi.

There is a Sewer Hole to the north that the Red Dragon Negotiator will use to
take a piss and is the best place to ambush him.

The Basement contains the Cook Outfit and a Point of Interest which is the
Gas Control that you can sabotage to lure the Chef. The 1st Floor has a Point
of Interest which is the Kitchen Area that has the Serving Tray that you can
use the Rat Poison with.

The 2nd Floor is where the Blus Lotus Negotiator and the Chief of Police will
meet.

Although you can snipe both main Targets from outside I found NightMare185's
strategy to be very effective and that what is used here. I have added
additional details and observations to improve upon it.

    *************************
      If you acquired all other Assault Rifles prior to this mission and 
      earned your bonus weapon in the last one then you will unlock the {All

0===========================================================================0
|==========================| Mission Walkthrough |==========================|
0===========================================================================0

When you start the mission then you will be next to your car. You will also
be provided with your Sniper Suitcase.

The first part of this mission needs to be done quickly or you will risk
having the Red Dragon Negotiator enter the Restaurant. Drop the Sniper
Suitcase then run forward and turn right into the next alley. Follow the
alley east until you reach the next street and where you will see one of the
Taxis.

Run past the Taxi and across the street through the wall opening that leads
to the back of the Restaurant. Go through the opening and turn right to find
the stairs leading down to the Basement of the Restaurant.

Pick the lock of the Basement door and enter. Turn right to find a door that
leads into a small storage room where you will find the Cook Outfit on a
shelf. When you put on the Outfit then you will be warned that it won't work
on the other employees.

After putting on the Outfit then Prep your Fiber Wire, quickly leave the
Basement, go back through the wall opening, and to the street. Then run north
and turn right at the next corner. Look north and you will see the Red Dragon
Negotiator pausing in front of an alley. Then he will head north toward a
Sewer Hole.

Run across the street then walk toward him when you get to the other side. As
you get near the trash dumpster then start Sneaking. As you get close to him
then pull out your Fiber Wire and Wire him. Drag his body and dump him into
the Sewer Hole. Climb down and grab the Amulet then climb back up.

Head back to the wall opening but turn left instead. Here you will find a
pair of trash dumpsters and a Sewer Hole in the corner. Go down the Sewer
Hole and turn left to find the Rat Poison. Climb back up and head to the
Basement door again. You will notice that there are two Cops standing nearby
but they will cause no problems.

When you get back inside the Basement then go sabotage the Gas Control and go
back into the storage room. This will lure the Chef down into the Basement.
Look through the Keyhole and when the Chef walks past your door then pull out
your Syringe, Sneak out and get behind him, then Sedate him. Then grab the
Chef's Key (which unlocks the back door) and walk back out of the Basement.

Walk up the stairs and do a 180-degree turn right then turn right at the next
corner (where you will find a green van). You should find the back door to
the Restaurant and a couple of Guards.

But, before you go inside, step to the left of the door and open it. The
Bartender is in the main restaurant area. And he will not be fooled by your
current disguise. He has a pattern of standing behind the Bar then go to the
Guard sitting nearby then go back again. If you go inside when he is heading
to the Guard then he can see you when you enter and you will blow your cover.

So wait until he heads toward the Bar before entering. When you get inside
then you should find the Serving Tray. Before you do anything else you should
close the door or the Cops will see you if you tamper with it.

Poison Drinks and then pick up the Serving Tray. The plan is to go and serve
the deadly drinks to the Blue Lotus Negotiator and the Chief of Police
upstairs. Go up to the door and look through the window. Wait for the
Bartender to start talking to the Cop or be standing behind the Bar before
going through the door.

When the coast is clear then walk out and turn right then head up the stairs.
When you get upstairs then go to the Chief of Police and the Blue Lotus
Negotiator. Place the drinks on the table then walk around the wall but angle
your camera to where you can see them. Eventually they will ingest the
poisoned drinks and die.

Grab the Micro Uzi from the Blue Lotus, Place Amulet on Table, then go about
halfway down the stairs and stop. Put the tree between you and the Cop and
wait. To safely get back to the Kitchen you need to have the Bartender be
talking to him. When the Bartender returns to the Cop then *WALK* back to the
Kitchen - don't Sneak.

If you Sneak then the Cop will come out of his chair. This won't cause the
Bartender to turn around but it is best to keep the Cop sitting down so you
don't risk any Bad Things happening.

After you get back safely into the Kitchen then walk out the back door and
head to the car to successfully complete the mission.

The Police protection has been lifted from Lee Hong and now you can go after
him. However, he is holed up in his Restaurant and has a small army to
protect him. This Restaurant is also home to a Brothel which may be of some
use. There is also a missing Agent that needs to be found. His last report
indicated a large underground complex underneath the establishment.

Finally, you need to find a valuable Jade Figurine which is important to the
Red Dragon. If none of Hong's men can claim it when Hong himself dies then
the Red Dragon will collapse into anarchy.

There are eight levels to the Map:

  >>Brothel
  >>Mansion Basement
  >>Mansion 1st Floor
  >>Mansion 2nd Floor
  >>Restaurant Basement
  >>Restaurant 1st Floor
  >>Restaurant 2nd Floor
  >>Outside

The Outside Map is where you start and where you can find two additional Exit
Points. The Brothel is connected by a bridge at the southeast part of the
restaurant complex. One of the four Safes that the Jade Figurine can be
randomly found in is located on this Map level.

The Mansion at the north side of the restaurant complex has three levels. The
Mansion Basement has an alternate Exit Point plus a Weapons Room which is
located at the south end and has plenty of Firearms for your collection. The
Mansion 1st Floor is swarming with Guards. The Mansion 2nd Floor has a
patrolling Guard and a Safe that the Jade Figurine can be randomly found in.

The Restaurant itself has three levels. The Restaurant Basement is also
swarming with Guards.

The Point of Interest here is the Agent, Agent Smith (who you dealt with in
the previous two games), that you need to rescue and find where the Jade
Figurine is located. One of the four Safes that the Jade Figurine can be
randomly found in is located on this Map level.

Like with the Restaurant Basement the Restaurant 1st Floor is also swarming
with Guards. There are three Point of Interests on this level.

The first one, on the left is the Bar where you can find the Laxative that
can be used to Poison the Soup you can give to Lee Hong. The second Point of
Interest, to the right of the first one, is where Lee Hong and his bodyguard,
Zun, will dine. The last one, on the right side of the Map, is where you can
find the Soup itself.

The Restaurant 2nd Floor is where you can find more Guards. The last of the
four Safes that the Jade Figurine can be randomly found in is located on this
level. The Outside Map is where you can find two additional Exit Points.

| No new weapons here but, if you didn't acquire the M60 from the missions  |
| "Deadly Cargo" or "Slaying a Dragon", then you can get one pretty easy    |
| here in a post-Silent Assassin run. I recommend bringing a Micro Uzi S.   |
| for this task.                                                            |

| Wire the Guard you would've normally Sedated then go about the rest of    |
| the mission as written. Find and acquire the Jade Figurine before going   |
| after the M60. Go to the south Guard Room and bring out your Micro Uzi S. |
| before entering. Go inside and quickly kill the two Guards before they    |
| can do anything. Then grab the M60 and go to the Exit Point unchallenged. |

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

Most people, including NightMare185, prefer to rescue Lei Ling in order to
acquire the Safe Combination. However, I prefer to not deal with her and go
after Lee Hong first for the combination then rescue the Agent for the
location of the Jade Figurine. And you can get at it when it is at the
Brothel without involving her.

  >>Xbox 360 and PS3 Versions
    *************************
      If you have acquired all of the other Pistols prior to this mission, 
      including the Dual Gold Desert Eagles from "Asylum Aftermath" and the 
      bonus weapon from the last one, then you will unlock the {All Handguns 
      Collected} Accomplishment when you begin this one.

      If you have found all of the other Melee Weapons then you will unlock 
      the {All Melee Weapons Found} Accomplishment when you pick up the 
      Chinese Sword.

0===========================================================================0
|==========================| Mission Walkthrough |==========================|
0===========================================================================0

When you start the mission then you will be at the southeast corner of the
Outside Map. From here, run to the main entrance which is at the southwest
corner of the Restaurant. When you go through the entrance then you will be
in a large Lobby. On the left side of the Lobby is a pair of double doors
with green lights. This is the Bar.

Go into the Bar and talk to the Barkeeper. He is not very talkative but does
provide information on the Agent and the Brothel. He will then quickly leave
the bar to go to the Restroom. Pick up the Brothel Invite (if you want). Then
go to the south end of the bar to find the Laxative and grab it.

From here, run back out of the Bar and Restaurant, turn left and head east.
Head to the gates to the back doors of the Restaurant complex but don't go
through them yet. Look through the Keyhole. There should be a patrolling
Guard that goes around the southeast area of the 1st Floor, goes partway down
the stairs to the Basement, then goes up and goes outside. Then he goes back
in again and the patrol repeats itself.

Wait for him to appear in the Keyhole and turn around before opening the
gates and Sneaking in. Angle toward the double doors on the left. However,
don't go through them. Instead, go to the left side of the doors, crouch,
bring out your Syringe, and look north towards a pair of trash dumpsters.

The goal is to ambush the patrolling Guard. Wait for the double doors to
swing open again. The moment he appears then make your move towards him. When
you get close enough then Sedate him. Then run through the double doors he
came through to get inside the Restaurant area.

When you get inside then you should see some crates and a gap you can walk
through. Run through this gap and you should see a door to your right. This
door leads down into the Restaurant Basement. Run down the stairs and through
the open doorway at the bottom then through the single metal door ahead.

After you get through the door then you should see a Bodyguard Outfit on the
ground nearby. However, turn left and go through a large curtain to find the
Cook Outfit on the ground. Change Clothes into the Cook Outfit and run back
up to the 1st Floor and back outside. Then turn left and go to the
northernmost pair of double doors.

Go through it to get inside the Kitchen. Angle northwest to find two cooks
and a large table. The Soup can be found at the northeast corner of this
large table. Go to the Soup and Put Laxative in Soup. Then head to the Dining
Room where Lee Hong and Zun will be sitting.

Go through the two pairs of double doors behind the cooks and angle left to
get around the center of the Restaurant area. When you get near the Dining
Room then stick very close to the left side of the room entrance as you
approach Lee Hong and Zun.

However, depending on how fast you get through this part of the mission, you
can actually arrive here before Lee Hong and Zun.

When you get to Lee Hong and Zun then Serve Soup. Zun will taste the soup
instead of Hong and he will run to the Restroom as the Laxative quickly takes
effect. When Zun leaves then walk behind Lee Hong, wait a few seconds to make
sure that Zun is completely away from the room, crouch, bring out your Fiber
Wire, and quickly Wire Lee. Walk over to his body and Pick Up the Safe
Combination.

  >>Xbox 360 and PS3 Versions
    *************************
      Pick up the Chinese Sword to unlock the {All Melee Weapons Found} 
      Accomplishment then drop it after a couple of seconds.

From Zun's chair, drag Lee Hong clockwise around the table and drop him
between the *THIRD* and *FOURTH* chair. This will ensure that Zun cannot see
him when he returns from his impromptu restroom break.

From here, leave the Dining Room and go back into the Kitchen the same way
you came. Then go back through the double doors leading back outside then
turn right, go to the sleeping Guard, Take his Clothes, and go back through
the doors leading to the Basement stairs.

When you get back inside then run downstairs and back to where you left your
Suit. From here, run through the nearby metal door and follow the way until
you reach a double door with an Elevator nearby. Walk through this door then
immediately turn right to go through a single metal door. This will lead you
into the Weapons Room which has tons of weapons and ammo.

Turn left to find a single door that leads into the Restaurant Basement Safe
Room. However, when you get to it, then turn right to find a large curtain
and another metal door. This door will go into a corridor that doesn't show
on your Map. This secret corridor will allow you to bypass a lot of Guards as
you make your way to the Agent.

After going through the single door then turn left and go through the double
doors. Then run forward to the end of this section and go through the double
doors then turn left and run through the single door. Near the end of this
section is an open door but don't go through it. To the left of the open door
is a single door.

Go through this door then walk through the next door ahead and turn right.
Near this door is a Guard but he won't do anything but stand there being
stupid. After turning right then walk through the next door which will appear
to your right. This is where Agent Smith is being held. Free him and he will
tell you where the Jade Figurine is being kept.

  >>Professional
    ************
      It is important to let the cutscene run its course instead of skipping 
      it. The Figurine will not appear on the Map at this difficulty.

The Figurine is being held in one of four places (from hardest to easiest):

  ++Mansion 2nd Floor
    =================
      From the Agent's Cell, walk past the Guard and go through the small 
      room and into the secret corridor. However, instead of going back the 
      same way you came, turn left and go past the Guard and through the next 
      door.

      Go over the bridge and follow the way until you reach the Elevator 
      leading up to the Mansion 1st Floor. When you get up to the 1st Floor 
      then angle left past the Guard and continue northwest to the double 
      door with another Guard.

      Go through this door and turn right to find the stairs leading down to 
      the Basement. As you get to these stairs then turn left and go west 
      then turn left and go south down a longer hallway. At the end then turn 
      left 180 degrees and go up the stairs. If you went and acquired 
      Orthmeyer's Key from "The Wang Fou Incident" then this next part should 
      be familiar.

      Go through the double doors at the top of the stairs and turn left then 
      go through the next double door. You should also encounter a patrolling 
      Guard but he should pose little problem. Next to these doors is the 
      Safe. Wait for the Guard to be either outside or in the next room 
      before opening the Safe and acquiring the Jade Figurine.

      After grabbing the Jade Figurine then head back downstairs then to the 
      Mansion Basement and the Exit Point to successfully complete the 
      mission.

  ++Brothel
    =======
      From the Agent's Cell, walk past the Guard then run back the same way 
      you came and up to the 1st Floor. Then walk up the large set of stairs 
      to the 2nd Floor. At the top of the stairs is a bunch of crates. Go 
      left around them and through the double doors. Cross the bridge and you 
      should see a couple of Guards beyond the entrance of the Brothel.

      But, just before the entrance, you should see walkways that go around 
      the Brothel building. Go to the one on the left and run around the 
      corner. Then Jump to Balcony and go through the first door you get to. 
      Inside this room is the Safe. There is also some Poison on top but it 
      is of no use now.

      Open the Safe, grab the Jade Figurine, and head back to the 1st Floor 
      the same way you came. Then run outside, through the large gates, and 
      to the Exit Point to successfully complete the mission.

  ++Restaurant Basement
    ===================
      From the Agent's Cell, walk past the Guard then run back the same way 
      you came and up to the Weapons Room. Then go into the small room at the 
      north side of the Weapons Room. Grab the Jade Figurine then run back up 
      to the 1st Floor and Outside. From here, run to the Exit Point to 
      successfully complete the mission.

  ++Restaurant 2nd Floor
    ====================
      From the Agent's Cell, walk past the Guard then run back the same way 
      you came and up to the 1st Floor. Then run back outside, through the 
      large gates, then to the street and to the Ladder at the south side of 
      the Restaurant complex.

      Climb it then go around the corner. Then pick the lock of the first 
      door you come to and enter the room. Open the Safe, grab the Jade 
      Figurine, and leave. Then go back down and head to the Exit Point to 
      successfully complete the mission.

And now, for the last mission of the game.....

As 47 continues to recover from his wound he prepares to leave Paris. But the
Police have completely surrounded the Hotel looking to take him down. Even
with the authorities breathing down his neck 47 still needs to complete one
more objective before he can leave the city.....

The 3rd Floor is where you start and has a Power Switch that will be useful
to you. The 1st Floor is the first floor of the Hotel and has nothing
special. The 2nd Floor has multiple empty room but has one with a guest
inside and a Police officer outside.

The Sewers is the underground tunnels that run underneath the Streets. The
Streets itself is swarming with Police and SWAT including your intended
Target. Your Exit Points are also on this Map.

| This is the only mission that the MP5 SMG and the PGM Sniper appear in.   |
| You have to Rampage through this mission in a post-Silent Assassin        |
| run-through to acquire them both. Bring the M60 with you as this will     |

| Stay in your room, open the door, and use the M60 to quickly kill any     |

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

I figured out how to do this one long ago but I went back and streamlined it
based on new observations.

  >>Xbox 360 and PS3 Versions
    *************************
      If you've collected all other weapons, including the bonus ones, prior 
      to this mission then you will unlock the remaining weapons based 
      Accomplishments when you have successfully acquired the MP5 SMG, PGM 
      Sniper, and the bonus weapon.

      After completing this mission with the remaining weapons then go to 
      Training to unlock the {All Sniper Rifles Collected} and {All Firearms 
      Collected} Accomplishments.

0===========================================================================0
|==========================| Mission Walkthrough |==========================|
0===========================================================================0

When you start the mission then *IMMEDIATELY* run to the door. When you get
through the door, and into the hallway, then turn and run right. Run forward
through the hallway and enter the first door to your left. When you get
through the door then run straight through and onto the balcony.

Jump To Balcony to get onto the next rooftop. Then run past the stairwell and
angle left to get to the next corner of the rooftop. Across from this corner
is another balcony. Jump To Balcony to re-enter the Hotel. Look on your Map
and you will see that you are in a room that is behind the SWAT. If you did
not exit your room in time then the SWAT would be waiting for you and will
shoot you when you exit.

However, by going over the balconies and rooftop then you will avoid this
group. But you still need to get downstairs. At the end of the hallway near
the door to the room that you are currently in you will see a Power Switch.
You need to kill the power on this floor so you can get to the next floor
down.

Before doing anything, though, you should pull out your Syringe. Then Sneak
out and cut the power.

From here, turn around and run and, when you get to the group of SWAT, then
turn right and go down the stairs and between the two SWAT in the darkened
stairwell. When you get to then next floor then run right and enter Sneak
Mode just when you get to the corner.

Go around the corner and you should see a regular Cop standing next to a
door. He is trying to get a response from the guest inside but is having no
luck.

Even though you have slipped past some of the SWAT you still need a safe way
to get out of the Hotel. For that you need a Police Outfit. And this officer
will supply you with it. Having the Syringe out already will save you some
time since more SWAT will enter the building and the faster you do things,
the better.

Get up behind him and Sedate him. Then Pick the Lock of the nearby door and
drag him inside. You will find, upon entering, that either the guest is
comatose or dead. Drag the Cop to the opposite side of the bed, just to make
sure it isn't seen when the SWAT start going through the rooms later, and
Take his Clothes. Grab the Syringe next to the bed, Prep it, walk out the
door, and turn right.

Now head back to the stairwell but go downstairs. Walk all the way down and
go outside. You should see a bunch of SWAT. Head to the wall on the other
side of the street, turn right, head to the barricade, and stop then turn
right again.

Ahead of you, and to the right (and in front of an alley), is a Fireman.
Although you can do the rest of this mission in the Police Outfit the Fireman
Outfit is much better as it doesn't make you as suspicious looking. From your
current position, Sneak up to the Fireman.

If he somehow turns around before you can get up behind him then back off or
you will spook him and you won't be able to get the Key and Outfit because he
will run off. But he will have his back to the alley which will still allow
you to attack him.

In this case then head for the nearest Sewer opening and go down then go to
the opening northeast of the Fireman's position. Look at the Streets Map and
wait for the patrolling Police to cross past it before exiting. Then head
into the alley next to the Fireman.

When you are safely behind the Fireman then whip out the Syringe, Sedate him,
and drag him into the alley. Grab the PM Key and Take his Clothes. Go back
across the street, turn left, and head east to the intersection. When you get
to the intersection then head northeast across it and to a large
advertisement pillar.

When you get to this pillar then head east along the sidewalk but stick close
to the building. You should also see a Police van to your right. Your Target,
Albert Fournier, is behind this van. However, he is surrounded by SWAT
including two that look directly at him. But you can actually get them to
look away so you can safely get at your Target.

Continue walking east along the sidewalk while sticking close to the building
and go past one of the two SWAT then to the barricade and turn right. Go
across the street and to the wall then turn right and go west along the
sidewalk.

Go past the other SWAT then stop at then street corner. If you did everything
correct then both of the SWAT should be looking at the walls and away from
Fournier.

Now cross the street north and back to the large advertisement pillar. Head
back east along the sidewalk and stop at a point directly north of Fournier.
If you try to go further east then you run the risk of having the nearby SWAT
turn toward you as you try to get into position. If he turns then you will
have to break off your approach and turn him again.

After you stop at this point north of Fournier then carefully Sneak behind
him and look around to make sure that both of the SWAT, especially the one to
the northeast, are still turned away from him. Then bring out the Fiber Wire
and Wire him. After that then you can leave Paris. You have two choices of
escaping:

Go to the south side of the area to find a Police car and three Cops. Walk
past them and through the blockade to escape.

In the Fireman Outfit you won't have any problems with them whatsoever. But,
if you still have the standard Police Outfit, then you have to go around the
right side of the car when one of the Cops steps away from it or you may risk
having your cover blown.

If you have the Fireman Outfit and the PM Key then you can use the Ambulance
at the north side of the Map for an easier escape.

Regardless of escape route, once you leave the area, then you will complete
this mission and the game.

  website). A lot of time and effort was spent putting this thing together 
  and that should be taken into consideration.

  And remember.....

    "Respect is everything."

  Although my guides and FAQs can be found at many sites around the internet, 
  the latest versions of my work can always be found first at GameFAQs since 
  that is my primary contribution site. A complete listing of all of my work 
  can be found here:

  Most of my guides are dedicated to the popular "Grand Theft Auto" game 
  series but some of my other work include "The Chronicles of Riddick" games, 
  "Bully", and "The Darkness" titles.
