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 missions:

  >>Curtains Down
  >>A New Life
  >>A House of Cards

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. I used an NVidia
GeForce 6200 video card and SoundMAX Integrated Digital Audio. I also have a
Dell Optiplex GX620 (at 3.2Ghz) with 2GB of RAM and on Windows XP
Professional. This machine also has a Galaxy GeForce GT 610 video card
installed.

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

I also played the PS2, Xbox, and Xbox 360 versions using old game saves to
try out new ideas for this guide.

Welcome to my "Hitman: Blood Money" 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 "Blood Money". 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 *PROFESSIONAL*
difficulty setting. This is mainly because of the difficulty based
Accomplishments for the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions. It is also designed to to
allow you to earn Silent Assassin ratings and acquire all weapons.

This guide also goes over console differences and other technical data.
Although this guide was written with the Xbox 360 in mind this guide will
also benefit PS2, PS3, Original Xbox, and PC players.

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.

"Hitman: Blood Money" is the fourth game that features the now-popular
protagonist known as Agent 47, a clone designed for assassination work. The
game was released in 2006 for the PC, Sony PlayStation 2, MicroSoft Xbox, and
MicroSoft Xbox 360.

This game differs from its predecessors in that it has far more options to
kill your Targets including Accidents. You can also lure people away to
either move about more quietly or ambush them in a more secluded place. This
installment also has a new feature called Notoriety which makes the game
harder based on how many people witnessed you do your dirty work. In
addition, although you can't buy weapons, you can purchase upgrades for them.

This game feels easier than the previous installments but, since it has more
options to deal with people, it also feels more challenging. It also has some
of the better graphics of all of the "Hitman" games (only "Absolution" is
better).

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 revision adding new
information.

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

When you start up the PS2 version of the game then you will be given the Test
TV Settings screen. Here you can choose to start the game in either NTSC/PAL
interlaced mode (480i/525i) or DTV480p/DTV525p (progressive scan).

While I thought it to be nice that IO Interactive put in a progressive scan
mode for the PS2 version of this game I also found it to be almost useless.
This is because the progressive scan mode is programmed in such a way as to
cause severe pillar-boxing on my MultiSync 3D RGB monitor.

Pillar-Boxing is the reverse of letter-boxing in which the screen is squashed
from the left and right sides. On the MultiSync I found that the viewing area
is squashed an inch and a half from both sides (a total loss of three
inches). No amount of fiddling with the horizontal controls could fix it.
Obviously, because I prefer to play games in progressive scan when possible,
I was disappointed with this development.

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. Even though the game has its own progressive scan mode 
      this disc will also work with it. However, this product doesn't fix the 
      extreme pillar-boxing issue that occurs with the game.

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

      This game will also work with GS Mode Selector, preferably in 640 x 
      480. And, just like with Xploder HDTV Viewer, it can't fix the extreme 
      pillar-boxing issue with the game.

      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 "Blood Money".

      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.

Although I now have an older PlayStation 3 with Backwards Compatibility mode
I was unable to do any testing on it because it went down before I could do
that. I also have a Super Slim model that has no BC but I was able to play
the PS3 version of this game for the guide.

| B. Xbox and Xbox 360 Versions |~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~\
0+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+0+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+0

The Xbox version looks better than the PS2 version and loads up faster. Like
with the PS2 version it also has a progressive scan mode (but I would imagine
it is programmed better than the PS2 version). It also has features for Xbox
Live but, now that XBL support for the Original Xbox has been discontinued,
those features are useless.

Finally, the Xbox version is *NOT* supported on the now aborted Backwards
Compatibility feature on the Xbox 360. Originally it was but, after the
release of the Xbox 360 version, support for the Xbox version was removed in
one of the last updates.

The Xbox 360 version looks and sounds the best of the older console versions.
The addition of Accomplishments adds replay and challenge value to the game.
The game can be installed on the hard drive and USB flash drives to reduce
wear and tear on your unit.

In 2013 this game was rereleased as part of the HD Trilogy set that also
includes its predecessors "Silent Assassin" and "Contracts". Even though IOI
is part of Square-Enix now the only change to the game is the artwork on the
disc - all of the cutscenes and credit listings when you load up the game
still names Eidos as the publisher.

Like the Xbox 360 version this game is part of the HD Trilogy set. And just
like that version it also looks good in HD. Unfortunately, it cannot be
installed to the PS3's hard drive or external devices. The music sounds rough
in a couple of spots and has a minor bug related to audio that is exclusive
to that platform.

Being that "Blood Money" was released in 2006, 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, two years before 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 will *NOT* run on any of the IGPs that came out at the time of the
title's release. They do not support Pixel Shaders which is a requirement for
the game to run. A dedicated video card is *REQUIRED* to run "Blood Money" on
older machines.

If your machine has a PCI-Express slot then you should have an easy time
finding a decent video card that will allow you to get the most from this
game. If not, then it will be more difficult. There is no PCI-E slot on the
GX270 so I had to find an AGP interface card. I found an inexpensive NVidia
GeForce 6200 card at the Austin Goodwill ComputerWorks.

But, for this title anyway, it is considered a low-end card and the game will
chug badly unless you set the resolution down and tweak down most of the
other graphical settings.

However, even on a higher end machine with a good video card I found that the
camera movements tend to be rough regardless of resolution and other
graphical settings.

In addition, you need to tweak the sound acceleration settings down to Basic
in the program DXDiag (prior to running the game) or you will cause the game
to crash in the missions "Curtains Down" and "A Murder of Crows". When
running DXDiag you need to access the Sound tab to tweak the necessary
settings.

Then there's the matter of the controls. I find the keyboard/mouse setup to
be very clumsy and I cannot play any of the "Hitman" games with this setup.
The program Xpadder is an extremely useful program to get around this issue
and I discuss that later in the guide.

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.

"Blood Money" does have some imperfections that will appear from time to
time. These are bugs within the game engine and may appear across most
platforms:

  >>Strangulation Bug I
    *******************
      There is a rare intermittent crash when Strangulating the Guard through 
      the Hatch in "Death of a Showman". Found in the PS2 and Xbox 360 
      versions.

  >>Strangulation Bug II
    ********************
      Unlike the first bug this one you can recreate at will. Basically, if 
      you Strangle too many people through the Elevator Hatch then you will 
      crash the game. Found this during the mission "You Better Watch Out..." 
      on all versions.

  >>Disarm Bug
    **********
      I believe you can crash the game if you Disarm too many people without 
      either knocking them out or killing them afterwards. Found on the Xbox 
      360 version.

  >>Melee Weapon Bug
    ****************
      If you use a Kitchen Knife, Meat Cleaver, or Screwdriver and you swing 
      into the air or into a wall then you may cause game to crash. Found on 
      the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions.

  >>The Reappearing Air Rifle Glitch
    ********************************
      This minor bug appears only in the mission "A New Life". This bug has 
      to do with making the Air Rifle reappear in the Weapons Box if you 
      remove it from the Box and then ambush a Guard at the Box. But I 
      rewrote the mission in such a way as to avoid it completely. Found on 
      all versions.

  >>PIP Bug
    *******
      In the mission "Amendment XXV" if you have the PIP Cam off then it will 
      turn itself back on at some point during the mission (usually after 
      Parchezzi's death). Found on all console versions.

  >>Music Bug
    *********
      This minor bug appears on the PS3 version. When you get to the final 
      cutscene of the game the music that plays at the beginning of "Requiem" 
      will overlap with the audio of the cutscene.

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

            /=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=\
 /=========================================================================\
| >GEN4. 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.

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

Although the manual covers the setup pretty good, I felt that I should
include a section on controls.

      need for him to go when running.

| 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 this game.

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

Listed below is the recommended layout for using Xpadder with this game
(using the default keyboard settings) for both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 2
and 3 controllers:

Within the game itself Invert the Mouse and tweak the sensitivity settings to
your comfort level.

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.

Despite the addition of the Run command everything mapped out pretty well
when comparing this layout to the console versions.

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

In this chapter I go over a couple of the game features:

0==========0
| Notoriety \
0============================================================>

  One of the new features introduced in "Blood Money" is what is called 
  Notoriety. The more people who witness you doing your thing, the harder it 
  will make your next mission and beyond.

  This is because you will become more famous and more people will recognize 
  you. Guards will become more suspicious and your cover will get blown more 
  easily. People may run to Guards easier or may just run from you 
  altogether.

  If you max out your Notoriety Rating then, unless you obtain a disguise 
  that covers your face, Guards will shoot you on sight. This will make it 
  very difficult to do your work. Because you need to be anonymous to be a 
  successful assassin, becoming famous is bad for business. So it is 
  important to be as clean as possible.

  There are two main stats concerning Notoriety: Witnesses and Caught On 
  Camera.

  Witnesses are people who saw you do something you shouldn't have been doing 
  and you didn't manage to kill.

  Caught On Camera is if you are seen on the CCTV Cameras that can be found 
  on some missions. To remove evidence of your capture you need to find the 
  Surveillance Machine (VCR) and remove the CCTV Tape.

  When you play through a mission for the first time then you will establish 
  your Notoriety Rating for that mission. The more Witnesses you leave 
  behind, coupled with the Caught On Camera, the higher your Notoriety 
  Rating. The Notoriety Rating is on a 0 to 100 point system. 0 is the lowest 
  Notoriety and 100 is the maximum.

  The Notoriety Rating will affect your next mission and beyond but not the 
  mission you just played. Once Notoriety has been established for a mission 
  you *CANNOT* raise it no matter how badly you screw up your replays of that 
  mission - you can only lower it.

  The only way to raise Notoriety is to play the next mission to establish 
  the Notoriety for that mission and to add to what you already have from the 
  previous one.

  One of the best ways to lower your Notoriety is to simply replay the 
  mission to obtain a Silent Assassin rating which will reduce your Notoriety 
  Rating for that mission to 0. If you do not want to do that then you can do 
  certain actions at the end of a mission to clean up your Notoriety but it 
  costs money.

0======0
| Money \
0============================================================>

  Money becomes more important in "Blood Money" than with its predecessors. 
  You can buy upgrades for your weapons and equipment as well as purchase 
  means to clean up your Notoriety.

  You earn money by completing your main objectives within a mission. 
  However, you can earn more money by obtaining certain items within a 
  mission. And you can earn more money still by earning better ratings - up 
  to $150,000 for a Silent Assassin rating.

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

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

The difficulty determines how much damage you can take, the accuracy of the
Guards and their sensitivity, the visibility of people on the in-game map,
and the number of in-mission saves you can make:

0===========================================================================0
| Rookie       | The AI within the game is pretty easy and does the least   |
|              | amount of damage in a fight. The maps will be full of      |
|              | Points of Interests and you can save as many times as you  |
|              | need. Finally, the Notoriety system isn't in use so you    |
|              | don't have to worry about what you do in a mission.        |
|--------------+------------------------------------------------------------|
| Normal       | The AI within the game is still fairly easy and does a bit |
|              | more damage in a firefight. The maps will still have lots  |
|              | of Points of Interests and you can save seven times. The   |
|              | Notoriety system will now be in effect.                    |
|--------------+------------------------------------------------------------|
| Expert       | The AI within the game becomes harder and it will be more  |
|              | alert. The Guards will also do more damage in a fight. If  |
|              | you stand by certain Guards long enough then your Threat   |
|              | Meter will creep up into the Yellow stage and you will     |
|              | start to create Witnesses which will negatively impact     |
|              | your rating.                                               |
|              |                                                            |
|              | There will be no Points of Interests on the Map and there  |
|              | will be no Guards on it either (there will still be        |
|              | Civilians though). Notoriety will be in effect and your    |
|              | rating will be more negatively impacted if bodies are      |
|              | found. You can save up to three times.                     |
|--------------+------------------------------------------------------------|
| Professional | The AI within the game is the hardest of all and will do   |
|              | the most damage in a fight. You cannot make any saves at   |
|              | all. Only Targets and VIPs will show on the Map. Unless    |
|              | you perform an Accident on someone you cannot let any      |
|              | bodies be found, period.                                   |
0===========================================================================0

Starting a new game at any difficulty will start the training mission "Death
of a Showman".

"Hideout", "Death of a Showman", and the mission "A Vintage Year" will appear
on all remaining difficulty levels after completion of your first run-through
of "Death of a Showman".

If you go to another difficulty level and play "A Vintage Year" without
playing through "Death of a Showman" first then you will start out with
$75,000. You will get more money if you play through "Death of a Showman"
before "A Vintage Year".

In addition, the higher the difficulty level, the less money you make per
mission.

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

When you start a mission then you will usually be given a cutscene before you
begin. After the cutscene then you will be given your Mission Briefing where
you can go over who you need to kill and what other objectives you may need
to do.

After going over the objectives then you can select.....

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.

| A. Acquiring Ammo |~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~\
0+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+0+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+0

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 SLP .40 Pistol then you can add to your ammo by
picking up another SLP .40 Pistol.

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 TMP by picking up a MP5 since it is also a sub-machine gun and
they share the same ammo.

Unlike in past "Hitman" games there is no limit to how much ammo you can
carry for your weapons. You can have as much ammo as you can get your hands
on.

0+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=0=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+0

In "Blood Money" you will find crates and boxes where you can find and store
weapons. On every mission you will find a Weapons Crate from the ICA on your
Map. With this crate you can safely store weapons you find during a mission
that can be added to your weapons collection.

This is especially handy for large weapons that can get your cover blown. In
addition, you can also use the ICA Crate to discreetly bring in large
weapons, like your Shotgun, without causing problems (until you are ready
to).

On some missions you may find unmarked Weapons Crates. They are used to store
weapons to be brought back to your weapons collection but cannot be used to
bring in large weapons.

Weapons Boxes are usually found at the Guards Quarters and look like a foot
locker with the lid cut off. You will always find weapons to acquire within
them. However, the Weapons Boxes can be used for something else and I will go
over that later in the guide.

In "Blood Money" you have the ability to upgrade some of your weapons and
standard items. There are five upgrade tiers and they will unlock one at a
time as certain missions are successfully completed. In addition, all of the
items within a tier cost the same amount:

0+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=0=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+0

In this sub-chapter I go over the five weapons that you have from the
beginning and can be upgraded. Any upgrade you purchase can be unequipped if
you do not like how the upgrade performs.

Even if you choose not to use custom ammo you cannot increase the ammo for
these weapons by picking up similar weapons during a mission. In addition, if
you leave any of these weapons behind then you will be charged $5,000 per
weapon for its retrieval at the end of a mission.

0===========================================================================0
| Low Velocity Ammo | This fires slower and has less power than other ammo. |
|                   | But this allows it to be more silent and creates less |
|                   | recoil. When used you cannot use any other ammo for   |
|                   | the weapon.                                           |

|-------------+-------------------------------------------------------------|
| Laser Sight | A basic laser sight that allows you to be a bit more        |
|             | precise.                                                    |

|++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++| Tier 3 |+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++|
0===========================================================================0
| Magnum Ammo | This ammo has more power and can penetrate doors. But this  |

|-------------+-------------------------------------------------------------|
| Dual Action | You get a second Silverballer so you can dual wield. But    |
|             | this creates more recoil and takes much longer to reload.   |
|-------------+-------------------------------------------------------------|
| Long Slide  | This allows for better precision and less recoil but you    |
|             | cannot use silencers with it.                               |
0===========================================================================0
|++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++| Tier 4 |+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++|
0===========================================================================0
| Red Dot Sight | This is a sight that goes on top of the pistol. It has a  |
|               | small zoom and will allow for high precision. It requires |
|               | the Rail Mount upgrade and excludes the use of Scope Type |
|               | 1 upgrade.                                                |

|++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++| Tier 5 |+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++|
0===========================================================================0
| Silencer Type 2 | The best of the two silencers and cannot be used with   |
|                 | the Long Slide and the Silencer Type 1 upgrades.        |
|-----------------+---------------------------------------------------------|
| Full Auto Fire  | This turns the Silverballer into a machine pistol.      |
|                 | However, this also has more recoil because of the rapid |
|                 | firing. This requires the Large Clip upgrade to use.    |
|-----------------+---------------------------------------------------------|
| Scope Type 1    | This is a large scope that goes on top of the pistol    |
|                 | and has better zoom than the Red Dot Sight upgrade.     |

| Based on: Walther WA 2000.                                                |
| 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. It comes with its own rifle case  |
|        which can also be upgraded.                                        |

|        It is important to note that the rifle case is only for use with   |
|        the W2000. There was a trick in "Contracts" that allowed you to    |
|        use the rifle case to carry other types of Sniper Rifles which was |
|        very useful in collecting them. Sadly, you cannot do this in       |
|        "Blood Money".                                                     |

| Fiber Wire       | This is a specially made weapon using a very strong    |

|                  | The best feature about this weapon is that, because    |
|                  | you are strangulating your victim, he will not make    |
|                  | any noise as you are attacking him. You can also use   |
|                  | this weapon to break necks but this happens at random. |
|                  | Another feature is that it will not trigger metal      |
|                  | detectors.                                             |

| Sedative Syringe | This is a stainless steel, surgical syringe. It        |
|                  | contains a non-lethal general Anesthetic, enough to    |
|                  | knock out a grown man. Once knocked out, the victim    |
|                  | will remain unconscious for the rest of the mission    |
|                  | unless found and awakened.                             |
|                  |                                                        |
|                  | The Sedative can also be used on food and drink. Bring |
|                  | out the Sedative and aim the Crosshair at the item to  |
|                  | be injected. When the Crosshair turns red then press   |
|                  | Fire to inject the item.                               |
|                  |                                                        |
|                  | The Sedative can be used for a quick attack and should |
|                  | be used sparingly since you will have only two doses   |
|                  | to use during a mission.                               |
|------------------+--------------------------------------------------------|
| Poison Syringe   | This is a stainless steel, surgical syringe. It        |
|                  | contains a lethal combination of sodium pentothal,     |
|                  | pavulon, and potassium chloride and will kill          |
|                  | instantly. The Poison Syringe can be used exactly like |
|                  | the Sedative Syringe.                                  |

| RU-AP Mine       | This is a Non-Detectable bomb. It comes with a         |
|                  | Detonator and can be detonated within 25 meters.       |
|                  |                                                        |
|                  | This is normally used for Winches and other large      |
|                  | objects that can be dropped down onto someone. When in |
|                  | the right spot then you will get the Plant Bomb prompt |
|                  | which will allow you to properly place the Mine.       |
|                  |                                                        |
|                  | You can also plant the Mine on other objects as well.  |
|                  | Bring out the Mine and look down towards the object.   |
|                  | When the Crosshair turns red then press Fire to plant  |
|                  | the Mine.                                              |
|                  |                                                        |
|                  | You can bring out the Detonator in a crowded area and  |
|                  | still detonate safely - the people don't seem to care  |
|                  | about you holding this item out in the open. As a      |
|                  | matter of fact, this particular aspect of this device  |
|                  | is very useful in weapon acquisition which is          |
|                  | explained a little later.                              |
|                  |                                                        |
|                  | The Mine can also be placed inside Briefcases and      |
|                  | Suitcases. When opened then the Mine will explode,     |
|                  | killing the victim and thus making a good booby trap.  |
|                  |                                                        |
|                  | You get one Mine to use but you can increase that      |
|                  | number with an upgrade. You can also increase the      |
|                  | range of the Detonator with an upgrade.                |
|------------------+--------------------------------------------------------|
| Coin             | This is a simple coin used to distract people. Throw   |
|                  | the Coin at something and whoever is nearby will go to |
|                  | investigate. I find this to be fairly useless,         |
|                  | especially since it hardly works at all at             |
|                  | Professional difficulty.                               |
|                  |                                                        |
|                  | If you wish to lure Guards away then it is best to use |
|                  | the Weapon Dropping technique which I will cover       |
|                  | later.                                                 |

| Binoculars       | This is a waterproof and shock resistant pair of       |
|                  | binoculars with a 8x45 zoom. However, it cannot zoom.  |
|                  | But you can upgrade it to something better.            |

| Lockpick         | This is the one item that is part of your equipment    |
|                  | but cannot be selected in the Inventory List. This is  |
|                  | used to open locked doors, of course. You can increase |
|                  | the speed of your lockpicking by purchasing better     |
|                  | Lockpicks.                                             |

0+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+0+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+0

These are all of the weapons that you can collect throughout the game, a
total of twenty. You can play around with them at your Hideout afterwards
(with the exception of the Nailer).

To successfully collect a weapon it must either be on you, safely stored
inside a Weapons Crate, or inside your ICA Crate at the end of a mission. You
can bring in any of these weapons to use in another mission and leave it
behind without penalty.

All of these weapons must be collected for the "All Firearms Collected"
Accomplishment on the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions. If you wish to go after this
Accomplishment then it is best to do this on the Rookie difficulty level.

The information on each weapon and 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.
  --Uses: What type of ammo the weapon uses.
  ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
  --Notes: Information on the weapon or item.

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

  These weapons are unusual in that even though they fire projectiles they 
  are considered melee weapons.

    >>Nailer
      ======
        Missions: Curtains Down
                  A New Life
                  Amendment XXV
        Magazine Capacity: 50 rounds.
        Ammo Type: Nails.
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------
        Notes: This nail gun doesn't do much damage and can be considered a 
               "fun" weapon to play with. It is the only weapon that is not 
               available at your Hideout.

    >>Air Rifle
      =========
        Missions: A New Life
        Based on: Beeman Break Barrel.
        Magazine Capacity: 1 round.
        Ammo Type: Darts/Tranquilizer.
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------
        Notes: This is considered a melee weapon because of its non-lethal 
               nature. This weapon has a two level zoom mode and fires 
               Tranquilizer Darts to Sedate people from afar.

               Because of its small magazine you get only a couple of shots 
               when you bring it into a mission thus making it nearly 
               useless. The only way to have some real fun with this weapon 
               is if you play the PS2 version because you can use cheat discs 
               and have unlimited ammo enabled.

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 and all have some degree of recoil.

    >>SLP .40 Pistol
      ==============
        Missions: Death of a Showman
                  Curtains Down
                  Flatline
                  A New Life

        Magazine Capacity: 12 rounds.
        Ammo Type: .45 ACP.
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------
        Notes: This is a basic pistol that can be easily found on most of the 
               missions and has decent accuracy and power.

        Ammo Type: .45 ACP.
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------
        Notes: This is the exact same weapon as above but silenced. If you 
               need to bring in a pistol outside of your Silverballer then 
               this is a good choice because of its silenced nature and the 
               fact that its un-silenced cousin is the most common weapon in 
               the game allowing you to acquire lots of ammo if needed.

    >>Snub Nosed
      ==========
        Missions: A Vintage Year
                  Death on the Mississippi
        Based on: Smith & Wesson Model 686.
        Magazine Capacity: 6 rounds.
        Ammo Type: Pistol.
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------
        Notes: This is a small snub-nosed revolver. It fires somewhat slowly

        Magazine Capacity: 6 rounds.
        Ammo Type: Pistol.
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------
        Notes: This is a longer barreled revolver. It fires a bit faster than 
               the Snub Nosed but has a much longer reload time.

        ---------------------------------------------------------------------
        Notes: This powerful pistol has solid stopping power and a decent 
               rate of fire.

    >>Bull .480
      =========

| 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.

  Unlike with the previous "Hitman" games you can fire the Sniper Rifle like 
  a gun without going into Zoom Mode. You can even use it like this in 
  regular 1st Person Mode (and not have any recoil).

  To enter Zoom Mode you have to press the 1st Person Mode button twice. When 
  in Zoom Mode then use the D-Pad to go through the zoom levels. You will 
  notice that your scope will bob up and down. The more you sit still, the 
  more it will stabilize. This is important to know so you can make a good 
  shot at someones head.

    >>Dragunov
      ========
        Missions: Death of a Showman
                  A Dance with the Devil
        Based on: SVD Dragunov.
        Magazine Capacity: 10 rounds.
        Ammo Type: Sniper Rifle.
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------
        Notes: This Russian made sniper rifle has a two level zoom and a 
               decent rate of fire.

    >>Kazo TRG
      ========
        Missions: The Murder of Crows
        Based on: Sako TRG-42.
        Magazine Capacity: 10 rounds.
        Ammo Type: Sniper Rifle.
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------
        Notes: This sniper rifle has a one level zoom and fires very slowly 
               due to the fact that it is a bolt action rifle.

    >>Elephant Rifle
      ==============
        Missions: ...Till Death Do Us Part
        Based on: Browning BAR Mk. II Safari.
        Magazine Capacity: 10 rounds.
        Ammo Type: Sniper Rifle.
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------
        Notes: This sniper rifle has a two level zoom and fires faster than 
               the Dragunov.

0+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=0=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+0

A reader named J Sasaki told me of a commonly known trick that will allow you
to acquire certain large weapons utilizing the Detonator used for your Mines.
When you hold a large weapon, such as a Sniper Rifle, then bring out your
Detonator which will holster the weapon in your left hand.

For some reason, as long as you have the Detonator out, you can walk around
with the weapon without being attacked or even generate any Witnesses - it's
like you are not holding the weapon at all. This makes it much easier to
obtain large un-concealable weapons.

When you get to a Weapons Crate then go back into your Inventory List and
bring out your large weapon, which will holster the Detonator, then Store the
weapon to save it.

  >>Cane Sword
    ==========
      Missions: A Dance with the Devil
      -----------------------------------------------------------------------
      Notes: This is a sword hidden within a cane. You acquire this by 
             killing Vaana Ketlyn up-close. For a sword it is not a terribly 
             powerful weapon.

  >>Real WWI Pistol
    ===============
      Missions: Curtains Down

      Magazine Capacity: 9 rounds.
      Ammo Type: Mauser.
      -----------------------------------------------------------------------
      Notes: This pistol is mainly used to be swapped out for a prop version 
             of the same weapon. Not very powerful but will still kill with a 
             headshot.

  >>Custom 1911
    ===========

      -----------------------------------------------------------------------
      Notes: This is a customized variant of the Silverballer that is very 
             accurate and powerful enough to go through people and doors. Odd 
             that it is a pistol that you can't add to your weapons 
             collection.

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

Your Main Screen is where all of the action in "Blood Money" take place.

In the center of your screen is Agent 47. You use the joypad (PS2, PS3, Xbox,
Xbox 360) 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 threat
level) is displayed. Your available actions, along with the button icons
related to them, are displayed in the upper left corner of the screen.

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 in the center of the screen. In the upper right
corner of the screen is your compass which tells you what direction you are
facing.

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

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

The Health Bar represents your available health. 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 danger you are in. The threat levels are
based on color:

0===========================================================================0
| Green  | If you are in disguise then you will go into the green range as  |
|        | you pass by Civilians and Guards. As long as it remains green    |
|        | then you are in good shape. You will automatically go green when |
|        | a Guard finds a dropped weapon.                                  |
|--------+------------------------------------------------------------------|
| Yellow | There are various reasons for going yellow. One reason is that   |
|        | you were seen by someone doing something that you shouldn't be   |
|        | doing (like dragging a body) and that this Witness will go to    |
|        | the Guards.                                                      |
|        |                                                                  |
|        | This will negatively impact your rating. Another reason is that  |
|        | a body was found regardless of whether or not it was an          |
|        | Accident.                                                        |
|--------+------------------------------------------------------------------|
| Red    | When you go red and the music changes then this means that your  |
|        | cover is blown and you will be attacked. Most times, if you blow |
|        | you cover and you kill the person who blew it, then your Threat  |
|        | Meter will go yellow afterwards as people will become much more  |
|        | suspicious of you regardless of your current activity.           |

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. 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 or Police to inform them of it.         |
|---------------+-----------------------------------------------------------|
| Blue          | These are Police. They are pretty much the same as a      |
|               | regular enemy.                                            |
|---------------+-----------------------------------------------------------|
| White         | This is a V.I.P. This person usually needs to be          |

A circle with an X is a dead body. 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. Your ICA Crate is
marked "ICA". A blue circle with a lightning symbol is a Power Switch.

When you go into your Objectives screen during the mission then you have the
option of buying additional Intel to gain more information about your
surroundings. You can buy up to eight pieces of Intel and each one will cost
you $3,500.

To use any weapon or item you must first bring up the Inventory Menu. Select
the item or weapon you wish to use and Equip it to bring out the item and
leave the menu.

If you are using a weapon then you can Holster it by using the Holster
button. Just like with the previous "Hitman" games 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.

Listed in this chapter are the different ways you can move about within
missions:

0===========================================================================0
| Walking       | Moving the Left Analog Stick forward slightly will make   |
|               | 47 walk slowly.                                           |
|---------------+-----------------------------------------------------------|
| Speed Walking | Speed Walking is something new to the "Hitman" games. If  |
|               | you move the Left Analog Stick forward a little more then |
|               | you will walk faster.                                     |
|               |                                                           |
|               | On the Original Xbox version you really don't get a speed |
|               | walk animation. Instead you will get what I call a "slow  |
|               | motion" run animation (very similar to the slow motion    |
|               | running used in the old '70s television show "The Six     |
|               | Million Dollar Man").                                     |
|---------------+-----------------------------------------------------------|
| Running       | Move the Left Analog Stick more forward and 47 will run.  |
|               | On the PC version you need to use the Run command in      |
|               | conjunction with the Movement Keys.                       |
|               |                                                           |
|               | Unlike previous "Hitman" games you can run by Guards      |
|               | without drawing their suspicions as long as you are       |
|               | properly disguised (in restricted areas) or in your Suit. |
|               | This will allow you to do missions more quickly.          |
|---------------+-----------------------------------------------------------|
| Nudging       | This method involves moving yourself incrementally        |
|               | without going into Sneak Mode. Quickly nudge the Left     |
|               | Analog Stick forward and you can move a few pixels even   |
|               | though it looks like you are standing still.              |
|               |                                                           |
|               | This is beneficial to quickly get closer to something     |
|               | without risking getting caught or to keep doors open.     |

As you go about the mission then you will see both Guards, Civilians, and
Targets move about the area. The most important thing to know about this
game, as well as the other "Hitman" games, is that everybody moves 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 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. That Civilian will also become a Witness unless you kill him or her
by the end of the mission.

One of the most important actions you will take within the game is Standing.
By standing at specific places and at specific times then you will make it
easier to attack your victims or avoid people. Usually you will be standing
at or near the end of a person's patrol route. When that person stops in
front of you then you can attack him any way you please.

Here's an example:

  --"Stand by the window and wait for the Guard to stop by you."

When I say "Stand by the window" *DON'T* stand *EXACTLY* by the window. You
need to allow room for a person to stand in front of you. Put an imaginary
person in front of you as you stand by the window and make room for him. So,
when the Guard comes by, then he will stand right in front of you.

Sometimes you will be standing in an area that has very little room for
somebody else. This is not something to worry about since the game will warp
the approaching person either around or through you to allow him to get to
where he needs to go.

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

Most of the game is played in 3rd Person but you can switch to 1st Person by
using the Right Analog Stick Button. When in 1st Person Mode then you can
sidestep left and right, something you can't do in 3rd Person. This is useful
when you need to tweak where you need to stand if you are trying to ambush
somebody.

In addition, wherever the camera is pointing when you are in 3rd Person Mode
is where you will face when you go into 1st Person Mode.

For example, you are standing behind somebody and your camera is pointing 180
degrees to look at a window. If you go into 1st Person Mode than you will

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 Sedative or Pistolwhip him.

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 (or, at the very least, he may walk away which
may blow whatever timing you were relying on).

During the course of the guide you will see three specific Melee Attack
words: Sedate, Poison, 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 SEDATIVE.                                     |
|        |   --Enter Sneak Mode and creep up on your target.                |
|        |   --Attack your victim.                                          |
|        |                                                                  |
|        | When a person is Sedated then he will be out for the remainder   |
|        | of the mission unless he is found and awakened by somebody.      |
|--------+------------------------------------------------------------------|
| Poison | This is the same method as above except you use the POISON.      |
|--------+------------------------------------------------------------------|
| Wire   | This is if you wish to kill a target with the Fiber Wire. It     |
|        | uses the same moves as the Sedative/Poison method described      |
|        | above.                                                           |
0===========================================================================0

As already noted, you can also use the Sedative and Poison to inject food and
drink so you can knock out or kill your victim from afar. Of course, there
are other ways of attacking your targets.....

| >GEN19. Human Shields and Pistolwhipping                                  |
 \=========================================================================/
            \=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=/

One of the other things that you can do to someone is to take him as a Human
Shield. This action is very useful in getting out of tight situations and
getting people out of the way. Just about every mission in this guide has you
doing this action as well as other actions related to it.

The action of making a Human Shield is known as GRABBING (which is also
shorthanded to GRAB). To GRAB someone you need to do the following:

  --Sneak up on someone.
  --As you are Sneaking up then bring out either a Pistol, one-handed 
    Sub-Machine Gun, or Nailer.
  --Perform the action "Human Shield" when you get the prompt.

When you have Grabbed somebody (thus making a Human Shield) then your enemies
will not be able to fire on you without risking hitting your hostage.
However, they will fire on you if they can get a good angle on you without
hitting the hostage. Of course, this means that you can shoot your enemies
more easily since they will be very hesitant to fire back.

On higher difficulty levels the enemies may just fire on the both of you,
thus killing the hostage, so they can more easily go after you.

It is very important to note that when you Grab somebody they may make noise
("DON'T NOBODY SHOOT!", "Don't do anything stupid, pal!"). If there is
somebody nearby and they hear the hostage making noise then it will usually
result in a Civilian running to a Guard or a Guard coming out to attack you.

When you have a hostage there are three actions you can perform:

0===========================================================================0
| Move             | This is where you move the both of you around, usually |
|                  | to a specified location. It is about the same speed as |
|                  | dragging a body but you keep the hostage conscious.    |
|------------------+--------------------------------------------------------|
| Drop Body        | This will allow you to release the hostage harmlessly  |
|                  | by throwing him to the ground. However, if this is     |
|                  | done at the top of a set of stairs then you will throw |
|                  | him down it. If you do this by a railing then you will |
|                  | throw him over it.                                     |
|------------------+--------------------------------------------------------|
| Knock Victim Out | This will release the hostage but render him           |
|                  | unconscious. This action is also known as              |
|                  | PISTOLWHIPPING (shorthanded to WHIPPING and WHIP).     |
|                  | Like the Sedative, Pistolwhipping a person will keep   |
|                  | him out for the remainder of the mission unless found  |
|                  | and awakened.                                          |
|                  |                                                        |
|                  | Unlike the Sedative, though, you have unlimited use of |
|                  | Pistolwhipping. You can pretty much knock out          |
|                  | everybody during a mission if you so desire.           |
|                  |                                                        |
|                  | As a result, Pistolwhipping is a powerful move that    |
|                  | will allow you to safely get people out of the way so  |
|                  | you can more easily attack your Target.                |
0===========================================================================0

Some examples of the terminology I just explained:

  --"Grab the Guard, move him to the Container, and Whip him."
  --"Sneak up behind the Civilian and Whip him."
  --"After Whipping the Guard then drag him behind the desk."

When unarmed you can Punch people out. Just go up to someone and use the Fire
Button to Punch him. Usually you start out with a headbutt then a small
flurry of punches before your victim goes down. However, this should always
be used as a last resort since, because you have to face your victim, that
person will become a Witness and your rating will suffer for it.

Your victim will remain unconscious for the remainder of the mission unless
found and awakened.

Sometimes, if the person is by a wall or railing, then you may end up
Stunning your victim if you try to attack from behind while unarmed. The
victim will remain standing but will be hunched over for a bit as he tries to
recover.

In addition to Punching, you can also Disarm a person who is carrying a
weapon. Quickly go up to him and use the Fire Button to grab the weapon and
smack him in the nose (although you can just grab the weapon without hitting
him on rare occasions). However, the weapon will discharge most of the time
when Disarming and this noise will attract more Guards to the action.

When a Guard is Disarmed then he will behave like a Civilian in that he will
either run or surrender (although sometimes he may pick up a nearby weapon
and resume attacking you).

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

After knocking out or killing a person then you should hide the body (unless
you are already in an isolated place). Get the prompt to Drag Body then drag
the body to wherever you need for it to go. Also be on the lookout for large
box-like objects. They are called Containers and are used for dumping bodies
out of view. They look like the following:

  --Crates
  --Trash Dumpsters
  --Freezers

Sometimes you need to put the body in a tight spot. To this end you can do
what I call Twirling. What you do is spin in place, in either direction,
while you have the body in your possession. It resembles what you do when
twirling spaghetti around a fork as the body spins around you. Then drop the
body when you have it in a favorable position.

Sometimes Guards and Civilians will find the body of someone you either
knocked out or killed. Your Threat Meter will go yellow as people run around
trying to find out what happened. This will usually result in the Guards
being more suspicious. In addition, the Guards will place the body in a Body
Bag and drag it back to the closest Guard Quarters or other secluded area.

In most cases, especially after an Accident, your Threat Meter will go back
to green (or nothing) once the body had been dragged to the Guards Quarters
(unless you were seen instigating the incident). At higher difficulty levels
then having a body found will result in a negative impact on your rating. But
there is one exception and that leads into.....

Performing an Accident is another way of killing or knocking out people.
There are two types of Accidents you can perform:

0===========================================================================0
| Pushing  | You push a person over a railing or down stairs. Just get up   |
|          | close behind a person while unarmed and press Fire to push     |
|          | that person. You do need to be right up against the victim or  |
|          | you may risk Stunning him instead.                             |
|----------+----------------------------------------------------------------|
| Dropping | You drop a large object onto the victim to kill him. This is   |
|          | mainly done by placing an RU-AP Mine on a Winch that holds the |
|          | object in the air. Then Detonate the Mine to destroy the Winch |
|          | which causes the object to drop onto the victim.               |
0===========================================================================0

In most cases, when you perform an Accident, then the body will be found by
others.

However, because of the circumstances in which the body is found, then the
Guards will *NOT* become more suspicious (even though the game says they are)
because they believe the person died in a tragic accident instead of
murdered. This also means that your rating will not be hurt if the body is
found as the result of an Accident.

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 unconscious person you
switched clothes with then your disguise will become compromised and you will
be attacked on sight unless you change into another set of clothes before
revealing yourself.

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.

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

In many missions you will find large Closets. You can hide in these Closets
as you wait for certain things to happen (like a Target coming back into the
room). However, if you are seen going into a Closet then you will
automatically be attacked. The Closet will provide no protection from gunfire
so you will be a sitting duck.

If you have blown your cover and managed to safely hide in a Closet then you
will still be attacked as the Guards will eventually find you and shoot at
you (unless you manage to safely lose them first).

On some missions you can use Elevators. However, they are more than just
going up and down on them. In every Elevator there is an open Hatch on the
ceiling. Climb it to access the top of the Elevator.

The top of the Elevator is a good hiding place but it is more than that. You
also have the option of Strangling a person from above using the Hatch. Bring
out your Fiber Wire and stand at the edge of the Hatch. When a victim appears
under the Hatch then you will get the prompt to Strangle.

When you Strangle a person through the Hatch then you will also pull that
person up onto the roof of the Elevator which allows you to easily hide the
body.

Sometimes you need to climb up or down to get where you need to go. This can
be done by climbing Ladders and Trellis's that you may find during a mission.
Just go up to one and push up to climb up or pull back to climb down.

You may also need to jump across gaps. Just go up to the railing and move
forward to jump to the other side. There are also times that you need to go
through open windows. Go up to a window and move forward to go through it.

As already noted the Weapon Boxes are where you can find additional weapons.
But the Box is more than that.

If a Guard finds a weapon on the ground then he will pick it up and take it
to the nearest Weapon Box to deposit it while your Threat Meter goes green.
Then he will go back to his original patrol pattern and your Threat Meter
will go back down.

This method, known as "Weapon Dropping", makes it a very effective way to
lure a Guard away from an area so you can do what needs to be done. This is
way more effective than using a Coin because you can make him move far away
from a given area.

Even better, you can use this to lure a Guard to a secluded Weapons Box so
you can attack him and take him down for the rest of the mission. When he
goes to bend down to put the weapon in the box then you can quickly bring out
your weapon and attack him.

However, this method only works on Guards - not Targets and Civilians. If
Targets or Civilians find the dropped weapon then they will pick it up and
keep it.

Although you can use your Syringes and RU-AP Mines to lure Guards to the
Weapons Box they are not recommended if you plan to attack the Guard there.
This is because the Guard will quickly drop the Syringe or Mine by the Box
and walk away before you can attack him.

Therefore you should only use Pistols and other guns for luring if you wish
to ambush a Guard at a Weapons Box. However, this method does have some
glitches.

If there are any weapons inside the Weapons Box then, when the Guard bends
down to place a weapon inside it, he will stand to the *RIGHT* of the Box and
appear to be placing the weapon on the floor. If there is an object to the
right of the Box then he will stand somewhere else close to the Box (usually
to the left of it).

To prevent this then you need to take all of the weapons out of the Box and
empty it. This will allow for the Guard to be in proper position when he
bends down.

If you knock out the first Guard and lure a second Guard to the same Box then
the Guard will *ALWAYS* stand to the right of the Box regardless of whether
or not the Box has been emptied beforehand. If you knock out the second Guard
and lure a third Guard to the same Box then the Guard will *ALWAYS* stand to
the *LEFT* of the Box.

In addition, weapons aren't the only things that the Guards will take to the
Weapons Box if found:

  >>Briefcases
  >>Rifle Cases

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

Another way to lure a person for easier attacking is the use of the Light
Switch. Most rooms have one and will plunge the room into darkness when
switched off. This will cause the other people inside to go to the Light
Switch, or to another one if there is more than one Switch inside a room, to
turn the lights back on.

When the victim goes to the Light Switch then you can attack him when he has
his back to you as he toggles the switch. It is important to note that you
cannot toggle the Light Switch in 1st Person Mode - it can only be done in
3rd Person.

When holding certain items, such as a Briefcase or large food items, then you
can place items inside it so you can smuggle them past certain checkpoints.
As you hold the noted item then you will see the Place Item prompt. Press the
button associated with the prompt to bring up what items you can place
inside. When you place an item inside a larger item then you can retrieve the
hidden item later with the same button.

One particular action you can do in "Blood Money" 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. But, as noted, you can upgrade your Lockpick during
the course of the game which will speed up the process.

Sometimes things go wrong and you end up having to shoot your way out. When
this happens then it is usually best to get into 1st Person Mode since it
more closely resembles standard first person shooting games and may make it
easier to deal with the situation.

It is also important to pick up weapons from dead enemies quickly since
Civilians and Guards can, and often will, pick up these weapons and fire back
at you.

During the course of a mission you can save your game. The number of times
you can save your game is determined by the difficulty you selected (except
Professional difficulty because you can't save games at that level).

However, there are only three slots that you can save you game to. This means
that if you wish to save a fourth time then you will have to overwrite a
slot. In addition, they are *PLACEHOLDER* saves, not permanent ones. This
means that once the mission is completed and you go to the next mission then
the saves will disappear.

But, if you Restart from the Details screen instaed of moving on, then you
can still use your saves. This is useful if you Escape before you want to.

One important thing to note about the saves: if you have a weapon Prepped,
such as the Sedative, and save the game then, when you reload this save, you
will automatically default to the Fiber Wire. To prevent this issue, if you
want to have a specific weapon Prepped, go to a secluded area, bring out the
weapon you want to have Prepped, then save the game. When you reload the save
then simply Holster the weapon to Prep it.

Here you will see a local newspaper with a front page article that goes over
the mission. It will display your rating and certain actions that you did
during the mission. It will also include often humorous side stories.

One annoying thing about this feature is that even if you killed all of your
Targets in Accidents it is not reported as such. You get "Silent Assassin
Wanted by Police" instead of "So-And-So Dies in Tragic Fall Down Stairs".

After looking over your rating and newspaper then Continue to move forward.
You can save your progress and go to the next mission or quit. Any weapon you
acquired during a mission will be permanently added to your collection at the
Hideout.

When you Quit a current mission 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, as well as new weapon
upgrades, 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 "Blood Money".

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, "Blood Money" is *NOT* one of these split Accomplishment games
because it is strictly single player.

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.

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.

The following are based on the number of Silent Assassins performed. Like
with the difficulty based Accomplishments these are also stackable. You can
either get Silent Assassin ratings in five different missions or do it in one
mission five times to get these Accomplishments.

  >>47 Kills
    ********
      Description: A mission has been completed with precisely 47 kills.
      Xbox 360 Achievement Points: 20 GS.
      PlayStation 3 Trophy Class: Bronze.
      Notes: Unlike the similar Accomplishments in both "Silent Assassin" and 
             "Contracts" this one is a bit harder to do in "Blood Money". 
             This is mainly because that most of the missions have far more 
             than 47 people in them:

               0=======================================0
               | A Vintage Year           | 70 people  |
               |--------------------------+------------|
               | Curtains Down            | 65 people  |
               |--------------------------+------------|
               | Flatline                 | 43 people  |
               |--------------------------+------------|
               | A New Life               | 31 people  |
               |--------------------------+------------|
               | The Murder of Crows      | 128 people |
               |--------------------------+------------|
               | You Better Watch Out...  | 98 people  |
               |--------------------------+------------|
               | Death on the Mississippi | 110 people |
               |--------------------------+------------|
               | Till Death Do Us Part    | 102 people |
               |--------------------------+------------|
               | A House of Cards         | 127 people |
               |--------------------------+------------|
               | Dance With the Devil     | 123 people |
               |--------------------------+------------|
               | Amendment XXV            | 73 people  |
               0=======================================0

             The missions "Death of a Showman" and "Requiem" have no score 
             and probably have far fewer than 47 people to begin with. The 
             closest to 47 is "Flatline" but has too few people. The next 
             closest, and over 47, is "Curtains Down" and that is the best 
             place to try for this Accomplishment.

  >>Accidents Do Happen...
    **********************
      Description: A successful accident kill has been performed.
      Xbox 360 Achievement Points: 20 GS.
      PlayStation 3 Trophy Class: Bronze.

  >>High Roller
    ***********
      Description: $5,000,000 has been accumulated.
      Xbox 360 Achievement Points: 50 GS.
      PlayStation 3 Trophy Class: Gold.
      Notes: Depending on how you play you may get this Accomplishment as 
             early as the completion of the mission "You Better Watch Out..."

  >>Notorious
    *********
      Description: 47 is the world's most wanted.
      Xbox 360 Achievement Points: 50 GS.
      PlayStation 3 Trophy Class: Gold.
      Notes: You need to max out your Notoriety Score. To do this you need to 
             rampage your way through missions. Since you cannot do this in 
             the Rookie difficulty level then the best difficulty to do this 
             is on Normal.

             Basically you need to kill Guards and let yourself be seen by 
             many Witnesses while doing so. Spare the Civilians to max out 
             the number of Witnesses. You also need to let yourself be filmed 
             if there are any cameras about. Do *NOT* spend any money to 
             lower your Notoriety.

             If you start with the mission "A Vintage Year" and do everything 
             correctly then you should have this Accomplishment at the end of 
             "Curtains Down". Another option is to wait until the missions 
             "....Till Death Do Us Part" and "A House of Cards" because you 
             can get a lot of Notoriety easily.

  >>Redemption
    **********
      Description: You can't keep a good man down.
      Xbox 360 Achievement Points: 50 GS.
      PlayStation 3 Trophy Class: Gold.
      Notes: You need to successfully complete the last mission, "Requiem", 
             on any difficulty level.

  >>Special Rating
    **************
      Description: A Special Rating has been awarded.
      Xbox 360 Achievement Points: 20 GS.
      PlayStation 3 Trophy Class: Bronze.
      Notes: You get this Accomplishment by acquiring a Special Rating. The 
             following list was obtained from HitmanForums.com:

               --Needle Pumper
               --The Russian Hare
               --Insurance Agent
               --Pianoman
               --Garrotteer
               --Insane Florist
               --Sushi Chef
               --King of the Jungle
               --Prince of Darkness
               --Beelzebub
               --Swashbuckler
               --Dr. Death
               --Skull Splitter
               --Raging Bluecollar
               --Frenzied Firefighter
               --Evil Eye Gouger
               --Murderous Manicurist
               --Slugger
               --Electrocute

             Most of these are based on using certains weapons exclusively 
             during a mission. The ones that I feel are easiest to obtain are 
             the "Garroteer", "Pianoman", and "Evil Eye Gouger" and I cover 
             that more into detail in the "Curtains Down" mission.

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

This is the walkthrough for the mission at hand. It is designed to help you
get a Silent Assassin rating in the best and easiest way possible while
finishing the mission on the Professional difficulty level.

In my other "Hitman" guides I made them for the Normal difficulty level but,
because of the difficulty based Accomplishments for the Xbox 360 and PS3
versions, I am honing this guide toward the Professional level instead.

Play the mission on the Rookie difficulty and get the hang of how everything
I have written is done while taking advantage of the unlimited saves and
easier gameplay. Then play through the mission again on Normal, Expert, and
Professional difficulty. This will make it easier to obtain the four
difficulty based Accomplishments.

These strategies will also work on the PS2, Original Xbox, and PC versions.

Each strategy presented has the following parameters:

  >>Clean Score
    ***********
      With the exception of Total Kills, Close Combat Kills, and Accidents 
      all Stats on the Detail page of your Rating will have zeros and no 
      shots fired (except for the first and last missions, of course).

  >>No Outside Weapons
    ******************
      With the exception of Pistols that should be brought in for 
      Pistolwhipping in the early part of a mission I have written these 
      strategies to use your standard items plus weapons that can be found 
      during a mission.

  >>Weapon Collecting
    *****************
      All of these strategies are designed to help you acquire all of the 
      collectible weapons within the game. Some are easier to collect than 
      others. There are some weapons that are harder to obtain and I have 
      outlined ways to get them.

  >>No Unnecessary Casualties
    *************************
      Even though you can perform Accidents on Civilians and Guards I prefe 
      to leave them alive by either avoiding them or incapacitating them 
      instead. This helps in earning a Silent Assassin rating.

  >>All Optional Objectives Completed
    *********************************
      Some of the missions will have objectives that are optional and can be 
      skipped. But you will lose out on additional funds if you don't go 
      after them so I will cover how to do them.

  >>Finishing With Your Suit
    ************************
      Since you will be penalized for leaving your Suit behind each strategy 
      will allow you to put your Suit in the safest place possible so you can 
      go back to it at the end of a mission and leave with it.

While there may be faster, but riskier, methods out there to finish these
missions I prefer a more steady, methodical approach to ensure complete and
total success.

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

As the story begins the camera pans out into an amusement park. Eventually we
see a large ferris wheel. But something goes terribly wrong and the ferris
wheel comes apart dumping gondolas full of people onto the ground below. As
this scene fades out we see a wall covered with newspaper clippings of the
incident.

These articles also go over the trial of the person responsible for the
amusement park, Joseph Clarence (aka "Swing King"). As the scene continues we
listen to sound clippings from the proceedings. In the end Joseph Clarence is
cleared of all charges and is freed. The camera pans down onto a picture of a
teenager who was killed in the accident.

The verdict does not sit well with the boy's father who sits at his desk
contemplating what to do. He then decides to place an order with the ICA who
sends out Agent 47 to deal with Joseph.....

This is nothing more than a training mission. You are pretty much told what
to do even though you can do anything you want. This mission has just about
every situation you may encounter in the game. You are also not scored for
this mission. It should be noted that even though this is a training mission
you can still be killed.

Any weapons you carry on you cannot be brought back. However, that doesn't
mean you can't collect them.

There are two ICA Crates - one before Joseph's office and one on the walkway
after his office. In order to bring back the weapons from this mission you
must place them in the *SECOND* ICA Crate (the one after Joseph's office).
They can't be brought back if they are placed in the first crate.

Now for the list of weapons:

0===========================================================================0
| SLP. 40 Pistol | --Carried by all of the Guards.                          |
|                | --Inside the room with the Baking Soda Crate.            |
|----------------+----------------------------------------------------------|
| TMP            | --In a small white box in the pile of junk near where    |
|                |   you encounter the first pair of Guards (with 691       |
|                |   rounds).                                               |
|                | --Inside the Restroom past the Drug Lab.                 |
|                | --On one of the tables in Scoop's den.                   |
|----------------+----------------------------------------------------------|
| Shotgun        | In the first room after climbing up the Red Trellis.     |
|----------------+----------------------------------------------------------|
| Dragunov       | In the first room after climbing up the ladder past the  |
|                | Restroom.                                                |
|----------------+----------------------------------------------------------|
| Desert Eagle   | --Carried by Scoop.                                      |
|                | --On one of the tables in Scoop's den.                   |
0===========================================================================0

Best thing to do is to play all the way through to Scoop's Den at the end of
the level, killing everybody you come across with the TMP, then kill Scoop
and all of the nearby Guards. Then go back and collect the weapons, place
them into the second ICA Crate, and finish the mission.

When you are done with this training mission then you are sent to your
Hideout. This run down place is what you call home.

It also contains a crude target practice area where you can play around with
your weapons including the ones you just collected from the previous mission
(and where you will find those you will collect during the game - with the
exception of the Nailer).

When you are done then head to the door to begin the main portion of the
game.....

The date: February 28, 2004.

47's mission is to infiltrate a vineyard in Chile and take down Don Fernando
Delgado and his son Manuel Delgado. Don is a former retired Colonel who runs
a well-respected vineyard. However, the vineyard is a front for his true
business - drug trafficking. Manuel is also part of the business so he is to
be taken down as well.

There is going to a party which is a celebrity unveiling of Delgado's new
wine label. This will provide a good cover.

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

There are six levels to the map:

  >>Hangar
  >>Guard House
  >>Wine Cellar
  >>Hacienda, 2nd Floor
  >>Hacienda, 1st Floor
  >>Outside

The Outside Map is where you start. There are five Point of Interests. The
first one, southeast of the Wine Cellar, is a group of boxes you can use to
climb the wall, The second one, to the east is a pipe that can be climbed up
to reach the second floor of the Hacienda.

The third PoI, at the east side of the Hacienda, is another pipe you can use
to climb to the second floor. The fourth one, to the north of that, is a
junked truck you can use to climb up to the roof of a building. The last one,
to the northwest of that, is a low section of wall that you can use to climb
or snipe over.

Your ICA Crate is at the west side of the Outside area. The Hangar has your
Exit Point. The Guard House has a Power Switch and Guards Quarters where you
can find some weapons and ammo. The Wine Cellar has one Point of Interest
which is the secret door that leads into the Drug Lab.

The Hacienda, 2nd Floor has one Point of Interest which is a window you can
use to enter from outside. The Hacienda, 1st Floor has two Point of
Interests. The first, on the left is a Guard Room that has a VIP Guard Outfit
plus weapons and ammo. The second, on the right, is a Weapons Crate where you
can store your weapons.

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

Not a terribly hard one to figure out. Although you can blow up a Winch and
cause a pallet of barrels to fall on Manuel I chose not to do that because of
the potential of noise and unnecessary casualties.

Although you can climb up a pipe to gain access to the 2nd Floor I felt that
there was too many people to keep track of, especially at Professional
difficulty, to safely be able to climb it without being seen.

But I came up with a way to lure one of the VIP Guards to the Weapons Box in
the Guard Room within the Hacienda to easily get him out of the way so I
could safely get to Don Fernando Delgado.

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

For this particular strategy a Pistol is required at the start. Use either
your Silverballer or the SLP .40 Pistol acquired from the previous mission.

When you start the mission then you will be at the north end of the Outside
area. Run east until you get out of view of the stationary Guard then run
until you reach the northeast corner of the facility.

When you turn the corner then continue running. There will be a Guard you
will pass as you continue south towards the fence at the cliff edge. When you
get to the fence then head west toward the Hacienda. Near the Hacienda there
is a break in this fence that will lead you to a narrow path that goes down
to the Hangar.

Run down the pathway until you get to the bottom. When you get to the bottom
then you will see a Worker standing there ahead of you. You can push him into
the water, which will kill him in an Accident, but the best thing to do is to
Sneak up on him, Grab him, pull him back to the end of the path, and Whip
him.

Then take his clothes which will leave your Suit in a safe place near the
path. This will also make it easier in regards to entering the Hangar area.

After taking care of this Worker then go up against the stone wall and look
inside the Hangar. Stay out of sight of the VIP Guard who is standing way
ahead of you. Eventually another Worker will appear and stand near some
barrels. Then he will head back into the Elevator he came from. Once he
disappears into the Elevator then make your move.

Sneak up behind the VIP Guard, Grab him, move him over to the large box just
northeast of you, and Whip him. It should be noted that he can go over to the
large box as part of his patrol route but he won't do that most times.

When you have knocked out the VIP Guard then change into his VIP Guard
Outfit, grab his SAF SMG, and Prep your Pistol again. Now head to the barrels
where the other Worker was standing before and get close enough to the Hammer
to get the prompt to pick it up but don't take it (at least not yet - if you
want it).

When the Worker comes back down the Elevator then wait for him to stand in
front of you and Whip him (and take the Hammer if you want). This will keep
him from causing any problems later. After dealing with this Worker then
enter the Elevator and go through the Drug Lab and the secret door that goes
into the Wine Cellar. In this part of the Wine Cellar you will see two large
circular rooms - with a Guard in each.

If you have done everything correctly then you should see Manuel heading
towards you to enter the Drug Lab. Turn left and stand in the south part of
the south circular room. You're going to be waiting for awhile so take the
time to look around.

The Guard that stands in the north circular room will stand against the
central pillar for awhile then head to the west entrance for a bit. Then he
will head to the room west of the two circular rooms. After standing for a
bit inside this room then he will head east toward the south circular room
and then north to his original position.

The Guard that stands at the south circular room has a very short pattern -
he stands at the west entrance of the room then moves over to the wine tub
for a bit before he goes back.

To the north you will see a pair of Civilians - a couple who happen to be
making out too much to cause any problems. Every so often a large group of
Civilians will come down to tour the Wine Cellar but you should have
everything you need to do done before they come down.

With that explained, let's proceed:

Wait for Manuel to leave the Drug Lab and head to the room directly west of
your position to snort some product. The Guard for the north circular room
should be heading in your direction as he heads back to his post. Walk to the
central pillar and wait for the Guard to pass you by. The other Guard should
be standing at the wine tub at this point.

Walk to the west entrance of this room and wait for the Guard to return and
stand here. Don't do anything yet. Wait for Manuel to leave and get out of
view then Whip the Guard. Then drag his body southwest and behind the large
wine tub. This will keep him out of view but *DON'T* pick up his Shotgun.

Now head to the room that Manuel was in. You should see a large wooden table
with a short white line on it. This is the product he snorts. At the north
side of the room behind a group of barrels is a large Container. Prep your
Poison and stand at the table by the white line. The north Guard will come
towards your position but will notice the dropped Shotgun.

He will then pick up the Shotgun and head to the Guard House to drop it off.
This will get him out of the way long enough for you to do what you need to
do. When Manuel comes back to snort some more then Poison him, grab his TMP
(if you want), and drag him to the Container to dispose of him. That's one
objective down.

After this then go back through the Drug Lab, past the Elevator, and head up
the stairs to the first floor of the Hacienda. The next goal is the Guard
Room at the west side of the first floor. When you go through the door at the
top of the stairs then turn right to find the door that leads into the
hallway. Open the door.

You should see a VIP Guard in this hallway. Head towards the west end of this
hallway (passing the Guard as you do so) and enter the Guard Room. Inside you
will find a Weapons Box with plenty of weapons and a sleeping VIP Guard. Grab
a Shotgun then leave the Guard Room and go to the main staircase in the
center of this floor.

Go up the stairs on the east side of this area about halfway up and stop.
Near the top of the stairs, by a double door, is a stationary VIP Guard. In
the hallway at the top of the stairs is a patrolling VIP Guard who will go
east and west along it and stop for a short time when he gets to an end.

Most of the doors are locked and need to be picked. Of course, you cannot be
seen by a Guard as you pick the lock. So the plan is to lure the stationary
VIP Guard away from the door by dropping the Shotgun.

At Professional difficulty it is best to stand halfway up the stairs or you
will risk your Threat Meter going into the yellow because of the stationary
VIP Guard.

Wait for the patrolling VIP Guard to go left past the top of the stairs then
head up. When you get to the top of the stairs then drop the Shotgun which
will cause the stationary VIP Guard to pick it up and go to the Weapons Box
to drop it off.

After that then walk east past the patrolling Guard then stop at the door at
the end of the hallway. The Guard will look at you as you pass him then head
west again. Wait for him to get near the stairs then Pick the Lock to enter
the next room but stay near the door.

Don will play his Cello in this room then head into the central room to stand
outside for a bit before heading back inside. Then he will go over to the
sleeping Guard and then sip some wine before heading back to his Cello.

Although you can push him over the railing when he stands outside I prefer to
kill him when he is playing his Cello so I can acquire the Snub Nosed Pistol.

Sneak over to him while he is playing and kill him (Poison, Wire, Hammer)
then grab his Pistol. This will complete your last objective other than
escaping.

If you did not get a Shotgun from the mission "Death of a Showman" then go
back to the Guard Room to grab the Shotgun then store it inside the Weapon
Crate at the east side of the 1st Floor.

From here, head back down to the Drug Lab the same way you came then take the
Elevator down to the Hangar. Change back into your Suit and walk past the
sleeping Guard to your Exit Point to successfully complete the mission.

The date: March 17, 2004.

47's next mission is at the Paris Opera House. There are two Targets to kill
- tenor Alvaro D'Alvade and the U.S. Ambassador to the Vatican, Richard
Delahunt. Apparently both are involved in child prostitution and is the
primary reason for their assassination.

The Opera House is currently being renovated and that will give you some
cover to do your work. In addition, there are rehearsals for the opera
"Tosca" in which Alvaro is the star. They are rehearsing the third act which
involves an execution. The Agency has left a pickup for 47 within the Opera
House that will allow him to take advantage of this scene.

The 1st Floor is where you start off at and also has your Exit Point. The
lone Point of Interest here is the table where you can place the Real WWI
Pistol. The 2nd Floor has a Power Switch and a Point of Interest which is the
Light Room Keycard that opens up the Light Room on the 3rd Floor.

The 3rd Floor has two Point of Interests which is where you can place the
RU-AP Mine to drop lights onto the 1st Floor. The 3rd Floor also has a Guard
Quarters where you can find weapons. The Basement has one Point of Interest
which is a Nailer.

0=======================================================>

There are plenty of ways to kill both Targets. However, I prefer the most
popular method which involves switching out the prop pistol with a real one
so that the actor on stage accidentally kills Alvaro while rehearsing.

This is also the mission that 47 did prior to being shot which set up the
story in "Contracts".

This is also a good level to acquire two Accomplishments on the Rookie
difficulty level:

  >>Special Rating
    **************
      This mission has security with less powerful wepaons and plenty of 
      unarmed people that you can stalk and kill. You should probably do this 
      after you have completed the game for max money for upgrades. It is 
      best to have the Pain Killers and Flexible Flak Jacket just to be safe. 
      You may also want to have a customized M4 with the Drum Magazine 
      attachment.

      The best rating to go after is "Garroteer"/"Pianoman" (killing lots of 
      people with the Fiber Wire). Although you can get a Screwdriver from 
      one of the Workers and go after the "Evil Eye Gouger" rating I do not 
      recommend it because you can crash the game if you swing the weapon in 
      the air.

      Go to your ICA Crate and get your M4 then use it to easily kill all of 
      the Guards and Bodyguards. Do *NOT* kill any Civilians with the M4. 
      After getting rid of all of the Guards then drop the M4 and go after 
      both Targets and all Civilians with the Fiber Wire. You should have 
      enough people to kill to acquire the Rating.

  >>47 Kills
    ********
      You approach this the same way as you do {Special Rating} except that 
      you need to kill 47 people exactly. Because there are 65 people in the 
      mission it can be a pain to keep track of everybody. But Marthzalsah at 
      PS3Trophies.org came up with a good way to help keep count.

      Use the M4 to kill all the Guards and Targets then go back to the door 
      leading out. Just before the door then make a game save. After that 
      then Escape. When you see the Details then you should also see the 
      Total Kills. If you did everything correctly then you should have 27 
      kills - 20 short of where you need to be.

      Instead of hitting continue press Restart. This should restart the 
      level from the beginning but you can still reload your save. After 
      reloading then kill a few more people then make another save and 
      Escape. Figure out how many you need to get and Restart again. Continue 
      this way until you get 47 kills and the Accomplishment.

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

When you start the mission then go inside, turn left, and head to the Coat
Depository to talk to the Receptionist. In the cutscene you will grab the
Real WWI Pistol - the item you need to pull off the accidental kill of
Alvaro.

From here, head to the Lobby Restroom just southwest of the Receptionist.
Here you will find a couple of toilets and a Container. You should also find
a Civilian here as you enter. Stand by where the Container and the dividing
wall meet and Prep your Sedative.

When the Civilian leaves then stand in front of the toilet closest to the
Container. A Worker will eventually enter the Restroom and use the toilet.
Listen for the sound of the Restroom door closing. When that happens then
Sedate the Worker, change into the Worker Outfit, and put the Worker into the
Container. After that then exit the Restroom.

Head north and climb the main stairs up to the 2nd Floor. Then continue
northwest and towards the spiral stairwell that leads up to the 3rd Floor.
When you get to the 3rd Floor then head southwest towards the Guards Quarters
door but don't enter it. There will be a Guard that will come by and stand
for awhile by the "Tosca" poster before walking away again.

When he gets out of view then enter the Guards Quarters and grab the MP5 (and
the SLP .40 Pistol if you don't already have one). Then exit the Guards
Quarters and use the spiral staircase to get down to the 1st Floor.

When you get down to the 1st Floor then turn right to find a Worker painting
a door. Go through the nearby open door and head down to the Basement. When
you get through the next door then you should see a large wooden table in
front of you and a large panel on the floor. Go to the panel and pick up a
Nailer (which will automatically Prep it).

Then turn around and head back to the door you came from but go down the
short set of stairs to the left of the door instead. Then turn right at the
next corner to find a set of double doors. Go through the double doors and
off to your left is another single door that leads up to the Stage area. Head
through this door and up the stairs.

At the top of the stairs you should see a large curtain that leads into the
large dressing room. Cut through the large dressing room and through the
double doors that leads to the Backstage Hallway. Turn left when you get
through the double doors and enter the next door you get to. This leads into
a small Restroom. Go to the single toilet and stand in front of it.

What will happen is that a Worker will come from the Backstage working area
to this toilet and back again. One of the things you need to do is to enter
one of the smaller Dressing Rooms in the Backstage Hallway.

Since this Worker goes back and forth between this toilet and the Backstage
working area then you may risk having him see you enter and this can cause
problems. So, when the Worker tries to use the toilet, then Whip him with the
Nailer and leave the body. This will get him safely out of the way because
nobody else goes in here.

From here, exit the Restroom and head south down the Backstage Hallway. You
should see four doors along the right wall. Go to and stand by the third
door, the one with the silver star by it, but *DON'T* enter. Ahead of you is
a Bodyguard who is sitting, napping, in a chair.

Every now and then he will leave the chair and go to the nearby Restroom to
the south. But, at this stage of the mission - depending on how fast you have
done everything at this point, he may leave to go to the stage instead
(although sometimes he will go to the Restroom instead).

When the coast is clear then enter the Dressing Room, bring out the Real WWI
Pistol, and hide in the Closet but keep an eye on the door. When the
Bodyguard leaves for the Stage then this also means that the actors will be
taking a break from rehearsals. The actor that does the execution, with a
Prop WWI Pistol, will enter this room. He will practice his role for a bit
then place the Prop WWI Pistol on a table and head to the Restroom.

When he leaves the room then exit the Closet, wait for the door to close, and
head to the table where the Prop WWI Pistol is laying. Put Down Real WWI
Pistol (on the right side of the table), pick up the Prop WWI Pistol, Prep
your Sedative, then re-enter the closet.

The actor will re-enter the room, pick up the Real WWI Pistol, and leave.
When he leaves then exit the Closet and hang by the door. Look through the
door towards the Bodyguard's chair and wait for the actor to go around the
corner. When he does then exit the Dressing Room and head through the double
doors that are off to your left.

Run up the nearby stairs all the way to the 3rd Floor. Here you will be above
the Stage itself. You should see a Worker up here and a door to the north.
Head through the door and you will enter the domed Attic. Ahead of you is a
Winch that you can use the RU-AP Mine on but I am not going to use it. Nearby
is a small box.

Go to the north side of the box, look south, and angle the camera downwards.
What will happen is that the Worker will come into this room, talk to
himself, then sit on this box. When he sits down then Sedate him. Leave the
body.

Then go back out the door and to the nearby railing. Get the prompt to Plant
Bomb then do so. When Detonated then this will cause the stage lights to fall
down along the back side of the stage below. Go back into the Attic and to
the ladder at the east side. When you get down to the next level then head
south to find a hole in the floor.

Climb down to the scaffolding and you should have an excellent view of the
rehearsal. Prep your Detonator while waiting and go into 1st Person Mode to
get an unobstructed view of the Stage.

You will notice that the action takes place on a platform in the center of
the Stage. Soon the action will climax with the execution and with the actor
shooting at Alvaro. However, since you switched out the Pistols, this will
result in the accidental death of Alvaro and this completes one objective.

After this then Delahunt will run to the stage to be near his fallen friend.
He will be wearing a blue-green jacket. Bring out your Detonator and, when
Delahunt starts climbing the stairs on the platform, then Detonate. Delahunt
will be heading to the northwest corner of the platform as you use the
Detonator.

There is a short delay between you pressing the button and the explosion so
that will give Delahunt time to get into position. Then the explosion itself
will cause his trailing Bodyguards to stop in their tracks. And then the
lights will crash down on Delahunt and kill him. This completes your last
objective.

By timing the explosion this way then you will kill only your Target. If you
wait until his Bodyguards arrive then you may risk unnecessary casualties.

Climb back up into the Attic, get back into 3rd Person Mode, and wait for
things to calm down (meaning that your Threat Meter goes to green). The
reason for waiting is that the Guards will head to the source of the
explosion and you don't want to risk them seeing the body of the Sedated
Worker as you leave the Attic.

When everything is calm then retrace your steps back to the Restroom where
you left your Suit. When the coast is clear then change back into your Suit
and head to your Exit Point to successfully complete the mission.

The date: March 31, 2004.

47's next assignment takes him to the Pine Cone Rehabilitation Clinic in
northern California. There are three mobsters that have checked into the
clinic. One of them plans to turn state's witness when he is discharged. The
client wants to avoid that but no one knows which of the three is the Target.

An undercover agent that was placed inside the clinic to find out has not
been heard from for awhile. Somehow he is being kept drunk for unknown
reasons. The clinic will only discharge patients if they are sober or dead.
The only way to get the Agent out is to kill him.

But the Agent is needed alive. To this end 47 is given an experimental serum
that gives the appearance of being dead and the antidote to bring him back
out of his coma.

There are six levels to the map:

  >>Medical Wing, Tunnel
  >>Medical Wing
  >>Main Building, Basement
  >>Main Building, 2nd Floor
  >>Main Building, 1st Floor
  >>Outside

The Outside Map is where you start. You Exit Point is inside the Morgue near
where you start. The Guard Shack is west of the Morgue. Your ICA Crate is at
the west end of the Main Building. A Power Switch is at the north side of the
Main Building.

There are two Point of Interests. The first one, to the west, is where you
can find an Admission Paper that will allow you to officially enter the
building and become a patient. The second one, to the east, is where you can
find a patient that you can knock out for a Patient Outfit.

The Main Building, 1st Floor is where most of the people are. A small Guard
Room is next to the set of stairs in the center of the Map. The Main
Building, 2nd Floor has one Point of Interest which is a chain you can plant
a Bomb on to drop a large light fixture onto the floor below. The Medical
Wing is where you will find the Agent.

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

There are two ways to enter the Main Building. One way is through the locked
door at the connecting area between the Medical Wing and the Main Building
and the other way is by stealing somebody's Admission Paper on the outside
overlook and becoming a patient by going in through the front door.

I found that going through the locked door is better because I can keep the
main Therapist from wandering the building. When the mission begins the
Therapist is inside the Reception Area and won't leave as long as you don't
enter it.

Even though you can knock him out on the 2nd Floor I prefer not to do the
extra work. And, speaking of therapists, you can dress up as one and make
your assignment much easier. It should be noted that the Therapist Outfit
will allow you to go through the facility with little or no suspicion.

Another thing I found about this mission is that, even though they look like
Civilians, the Orderlies are also Guards. This means that they can be lured
by Weapon Dropping. And that makes ambushing them easier (if you choose to do
so).

Finally, you get to use the nifty Stun Gun which will make taking down Guards
and other people easy. It has the same effect as Sedating and Pistolwhipping.

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

When you start the mission then immediately turn left and run west. Turn
right and run north when you get to the corner of the Guard Shack. As you
proceed north then you will see a vine covered wall. Run along past the left
side of this wall and go up the rock embankment to the path.

When you get up onto the path then run north past the large tree and to the
brick wall that comprises the connecting area between the Medical Wing and
the Main Building. When you get here then turn right to find a set of stairs
leading up.

If you have run all the way to this point then you should see a Guard near
the top walking away from you. Climb the stairs and turn left 180 degrees.
You should see your ICA Crate. Look right a little bit and you should see a
locked door. Pick the Lock and enter.

You should be in a narrow hallway with a Keycard Door to your left and
another locked door ahead of you. Pick the lock of the door ahead and then
walk out and turn right after you proceed through the door. Walk east then up
the short set of stairs but enter Sneak Mode when you get to the top.

Sneak east and past the Power Switch then go through the door that leads into
the Guard Room. Right after you enter you should see a Weapons Box to your
right. Grab a Stun Gun and Sneak forward to find a Guard sitting in a chair.
Sneak to the Guard and Zap him with the Stun Gun. Steal Video Tape from the
nearby Surveillance Machine, grab the Rehab Keycard, then open the nearby
Keycard Door and drag the Stunned Guard through it.

Head down the short set of stairs then drop the Guard close to the door
leading back outside. Switch into the Clinic Security Outfit which will place
your Suit just inside the door. The Rehab Keycard will also open the other
Keycard Door that leads into the Medical Wing where the Agent is being kept.

The problem here is that there are two doors that actually go into the
Medical Wing and they are both locked. Unfortunately, even though you have a
Lockpick, these doors cannot be picked. The only people who have keys to gain
access are the Orderlies. There are three inside the Medical Wing and two in
the Basement.

Even so, you can still gain easy access to the Medical Wing. Proceed forward
through the second Keycard Door and to the Medical Wing. Here you should find
the door. To the left of the door is an open window. Stand between the door
and the window and angle the camera so you can look through the window.

Here you will see an Orderly sitting in a chair. There will be a second
Orderly that stands in the office, complain about the coffee, then leave to
go outside through the door at the south side of the facility. Then he will
come back to the office and the pattern repeats.

If you look closely at the end of the table just beyond the window then you
will find a Cell Key and a Rehab Keycard. I already have the Keycard from the
Guard and I can get a Cell Key from one of the Orderlies in the Office.

A third Orderly will have a short pattern in the cell area itself. He will
stand in front of a cell then head west to stand in one then go back.

To prevent any interference I prefer to knock all three of these Orderlies
out. It's not hard to do.

Look out for the second Orderly and wait for him to leave and be completely
out of view before making your move. Sneak to and through the open window
then to the first Orderly. Look through the large window and keep an eye on
the door that leads outside.

When the second Orderly goes through the door and gets out of view then bring
out your Stun Gun and Zap the sitting Orderly. Then drag his body to the
Container at the northwest corner of the office. Change into the Orderly
Outfit and grab his Cell Key.

Then dump him into the Container and Sedate the Coffee Cup on the nearby
table. Prep your Stun Gun and head into the cell area. Go downstairs and hang
close to the cell that the other Orderly likes to stand in. Look through the
window when he is inside to see where he stands.

Wait for the second Orderly to walk past your position before entering the
cell. Stand near where the third Orderly stands and wait for him to come
back. When he stops in front of you then Zap him. By the time you take down
the third Orderly then the second one will be Sedated.

Head into the Agent's cell and talk to him. It's Agent Smith - again. The
same one you keep rescuing (third or fourth time already since "Codename 47")
and 47 is none too pleased. After the cutscene then Sedate Agent.

In the following cutscene you are notified that there are two additional, and
optional, Targets that you can go after. Of course, I am going after both.

Three Targets will now appear on the Map - one red (primary) and two
"lightish red" (optional). The primary Target will be random on each
run-through.

And your Targets are:

  --Rudy Menzana (pink robe)
  --Carmine Desalvo (light green robe)
  --Lorenzo Lombardo (light blue robe)

You can take them down in many different ways - poisoning hidden bottles,
pushing them into the Jacuzzi, crushing necks with weights, etc. But there is
one very easy way to take them down and without the bodies being found. By
becoming a Therapist.

From the Medical Wing, go through the two Keycard Doors and back through the
Guard Room. Then enter the hallway but *DON'T* go through the double doors
leading into the main area. To the right of the double doors is a single door
that leads into the Kitchen. At the south central side of the Kitchen is a
bucket and a mop.

Next to it is a hidden Bottle. Poison it and leave. This will take care of
one of the Targets and without the body being found. That Target is Lorenzo
Lombardo and he is also the one that goes up to the 2nd Floor and cooks in
his room. It is important not to go near him when you are in the Therapist
Outfit or he will go to the upstairs Office.

Although you can Poison the bottle at any time it is highly recommended that
you wait until Lorenzo appears as a Target first. The reason is that if you
kill him before he is identified then it will count as a non-accidental
Civilian kill and your score will suffer.

After Poisoning the Bottle then leave the Kitchen, go through the double
doors, and proceed east through the center of the first floor. You should see
a large fireplace and four sets of stairs - two at each side of this room.
Take one of the stairs at the east side of the room and head up.

Here you should see four small offices. One has an open door and three with
locked doors. Go through the one with the open door and you should find the
Therapist Outfit. Change into it and Prep your Fiber Wire.

It should be noted that the only person that goes up to this area of the 2nd
Floor is the Therapist but he is stuck in the Reception Area because of how
you entered the building.

Go downstairs and find one of your remaining Targets. I recommend going after
Rudy (the one in the pink robe) first. He goes between the Jacuzzi (northeast
corner) and the Den (north central). When you find him then he will comment
about that it is time for his session and he will meet you in your Office.

That Office will be the large room in the south central side of the 2nd
Floor. It will have two beige chairs with a small table between them. Go up
here and stand behind the west chair.

Rudy will walk slowly to the Office so you will be waiting awhile. As you are
waiting Agent Smith will be moved to the Morgue. This will also unlock the
doors to it so you can enter it to revive him and escape. When Rudy enters
the Office then he will sit in the chair in front of you.

Wire him when he starts talking then drag his body north through the small
room and to the balcony that overlooks the Den. Drag him to the railing, drop
him, and close the door as you leave. This is why you should go after Rudy
first - he is the only person who goes into the Den and you may risk having
him see you if you went after Carmine first and dragged his body here.

After hiding Rudy's body then go find Carmine. He goes between the Gym
(southeast corner) and Outside. When you find him and he comments about his
session then go back to the Office and stand behind the east chair while you
wait for him. Like before, Wire him he starts talking then leave the body
since nobody else comes up here.

By the time you kill Carmine then Lorenzo will have drank from the Poisoned
Bottle and died thus completing all of your primary and secondary objectives.

After killing all of your Targets then head back to the small Guard Room and
the narrow hallway where you dropped off the Stunned Guard and left your
Suit. Before changing out, however, go back outside first and stop by the two
benches.

Look all around to make sure that there are no Guards or patients nearby
before going back to your Suit. If everything has gone smoothly up to this
point then you should see a Guard approach you from the east. He will then
stop between the benches in front of you.

You could Zap him if you want but there is no reason to take the risk of a
potential Witness or anything else going wrong. When he finally leaves and
gets far enough away then quickly go back inside, switch back into your Suit,
and leave. From here, head down to the Guard Shack the same way you came
earlier.

As you head south towards the Guard Shack keep an eye out for an Orderly who
may be on the path nearby. When Agent Smith was transferred to the Morgue
then this started a patrol pattern of another Orderly.

He will go from the Morgue, up the path to the north end, then head back down
again and repeat. If you did not see him as you made your way towards the
Guard Shack then more than likely he is down near the Morgue. Nobody, not
even the Orderly, cares about you going in and out of the Morgue. However,
you certainly don't want anybody seeing you wake up Agent Smith.

Go inside the Morgue and stand in the corner by the Elevator. Wait for the
Orderly to come inside, stand for awhile, and leave. Once the doors close
then go to Agent Smith, Revive Agent, and Escape through the nearby door to
successfully complete the mission.

47's next Target is a gangster named Vinnie Sinestra. He is in a witness
protection program pending a court appearance. Vinnie also has some hard
evidence that can't be allowed to be seen. The client thinks that it may be
on some microfilm somewhere.

He is currently holed up in a suburban house in southern California and the
client does not want Vinnie to make it to the courtroom. But the house is
being protected by the Feds so it will be tough to get at him. However, there
is going to be a birthday party for Vinnie's child and that may be useful in
getting inside the house.

There are four levels to the map:

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

The Outside Map is where you start and also has your Exit Point. A Power
Switch can be found at the south side of the house.

There are two Point of Interests. The one to the south is the FBI Truck where
you can find a couple of Agents and the Video Tape. The one to the north is
the Treehouse where you can find the Air Rifle.

Your ICA Crate is to the east. The Vet's Office, where you can find a Bottle
of Ether and Tranquilizer Darts, is to the south of the FBI Truck.

The 1st Floor has a Guards Quarters near the northwest corner (and is
connected to the West Hallway). The large Pool is at the northeast corner.
The Dining Room is at the southeast corner. The East Hallway is connected to
the Dining Room and has a small bathroom. The 2nd Floor has a large central
room that Vinnie enters from time to time. The Girl's Bedroom is directly
south of that.

There is one Point of Interest in the Basement which is a Weapons Crate where
you can store weapons.

After playing around with this mission some more I found that you can keep
your Threat Meter under control when you are in a disguise and interacting
with Vinnie's Wife. However, I decided it was best to stick with the
ambushing method I devised when I built the guide.

It is also important to point out that if you cause too much trouble then
additional Agents in Limos will arrive at the house. In addition, I saved
acquiring the Air Rifle for last instead of doing it in the middle of the
mission. This is also the first mission where the Detonator Trick is used to
acquire this weapon.

This is also the best mission to get the {Fully Upgraded} Accomplishments for
your custom weapons (because this mission can be quickly completed). It
involves a little trick and credit goes to s1u5h13 who posted this at
Xbox360Accomplishments.com.

After you complete the mission "Death on the Mississippi" (which completes
unlocking of all of the Kruger Schmidt upgrade tiers) then go back to this
mission in Rookie difficulty. Choose one of your custom weapons (like the
Silverballer) and buy everything for it. Take it with you and do the mission.
How you do and complete the mission is irrelevant as long as it is
successful.

When the mission is completed then you will get the Accomplishment for fully
customizing the weapon. After you get to the Details Screen then kick back
into the Dashboard of either the Xbox 360 or PS3. Then reboot the game. You
will get all of the money you spent for upgrading back and lose the upgrades
but you will still keep the Accomplishment.

Then go back to this mission, chose another upgradable weapon, and repeat the
process. Continue until you have all five of the {Fully Upgraded}
Accomplishments.

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

For this particular strategy a Pistol is required at the start. Any Pistol
will do but do *NOT* bring an SLP. 40 Pistol.

When you start the mission then you will be near the Exit Point. You will
also see a Jogger stretching to the south. Quickly Prep your Pistol then run
to the Jogger but start Sneaking when you are about ten feet away from him.
Get behind him and go into 1st Person Mode so you can look directly at his
back.

Grab him then move him northeast across the street to the tree there and Whip
him. By Whipping the Jogger then you will make it easier on yourself in
regards to re-acquiring your Suit near the end of the mission. After Whipping
him then Prep your Sedative.

From here, go around the end of the hedge wall and turn east. Ahead of you
should be a yellow Catering Van. At this point there should be a Caterer
getting something from the back of the Van. When he walks away then head to
the back of the vehicle.

It is important to note there is also an Agent that has a patrol route that
ends at the corner of the Garage northwest of your position. But, at this
point in the mission, he will be heading inside the house and not be an
issue.

When you look in the back of the van then you should see a Catering Crate and
a box of Donuts. Quickly Sedate the Donuts and grab them. Run to the back of
the large white boxy van across the street. Go to the right side of the doors
and stand back a couple of feet to prompt Put Down Donuts.

This will allow you to place the Donuts on the ground and knock on the door.
After this then go around to the northwest corner of the Van so you are out
of view but be next to the door. Wait for the door to close then stand behind
the van a couple of feet and wait. It takes a little bit of time before the
Agents collapse.

However, you will be waiting a bit as you need to make absolutely the coast
is clear before entering. By the time the Agents fall the Caterer will be
leaving the house and heading back to his van which is north of you. He will
stand by the vehicle and smoke for a bit before heading back inside. The
patrolling Agent will also do his thing.

When the Caterer and Agent are heading beck to the house then quickly open
the door and loop around it to get inside. By doing things this way you can
also avoid being spotted by a Nosy Neighbor tending to a hedge to the
southeast.

Go to one of the fallen Agents, switch into the FBI Agent Outfit, pick up an
SLP .40 Pistol, and Steal Video Tape from the Surveillance Machine. From
here, exit the FBI Van and head to the Vet's Office. Run into the garage and
Pick the Lock of the door. Go inside the office and you should see the Bottle
of Ether on the table to your left. Go back out the same way you came and run
to the house.

Run through the front door of the house and through the next door to enter
the Stairway Room. Go up the stairs and through the door at the top. You
should see an Agent by the door as you go through it. Go through the next two
doors to enter the Girls' Bedroom. At the south side of the room is a desk.

On the desk are the Girls Panties. Go to them to get the prompt to Pour Ether
On Girls Panties. You see, the Agent you passed by is a bit of a perv (as
already hinted by the Intel) and likes to sniff the panties when he comes in
here. Of course, I can use that against him which is why I am using the Ether
on them. And this makes for one less person to deal with on the 2nd Floor
when I come back here later.

After this then go back down the same way you came. When you get back down
the stairs then turn left 180-degrees to find the door into the East Hallway.
Go through this door then through the door to your right to enter the Dining
Room. If everything has gone smoothly up to this point then there should
already be an Agent here.

He should be standing by the window at the south side of the room. Stay on
the opposite side of the table and wait for him to leave. After he leaves
then stand where he was standing and wait for him to come back. While you are
waiting then Prep your Pistol. When he comes back then Whip him and Prep your
Sedative.

After Whipping him then go back into the East Hallway and head north to the
small bathroom. If things are timed right then Vinnie's Wife may be inside
here. Stand by the wall to the right of the door and open the door. If she is
here then go to the light switch by the door that opens into the Shower/Sauna
area. Turn off the lights and stand back a couple of feet.

The plan is to ambush Vinnie's Wife after she leaves the Pool. The reason for
doing this is because she has a new necklace. And this necklace is where the
Microfilm is hidden. So you need to safely take her down so you can get at
it. This is also the primary reason for knocking out the Agent in the Dining
Room - he goes through this area.

When she leaves the bathroom then she will go to turn the lights back on.
When she turns her back to you then quickly Sedate her. The reason for
Sedating her is because you may make her a Witness mainly because of the
mirror in the hallway even though you may be out of view of it. Once she is
down then grab the Necklace with Microfilm - leave her body be.

After dealing with her it is time to get rid of some Agents on the opposite
side of the house so I can clear a path to the Weapons Box (in the Guards
Quarters). This is so I can easily get rid of Vinnie's Escort.

  **NOTE: If she wasn't in the bathroom when you checked it then she is 
          heading back outside and it will be awhile before she heads back to 
          the East Hallway so you should knock out these Agents first to make 
          the best use of your time.

From the East Hallway, go back into the West Hallway and then into the
Stairway Room. Head northwest to enter the Kitchen. Continue northwest to
find the door into the West Hallway. You should also be passing an Agent as
you head to the door.

Turn left when you enter the West Hallway and through the door at the end to
enter into the Laundry Room. Turn left at the next corner to find the door
leading down into the Basement. The Agent you passed by needs to be knocked
out and his patrol route ends here.

Run down to the Basement floor and through the next door. After going through
this door then you should see a shelving unit on the north wall to the left.
Stand with your back to the wall and about four feet west of the shelving
unit, look southeast, and wait for the Agent to return.

When the Agent returns and stands in front of you then Sneak up on him and
Whip him. You can grab the Nailer nearby if you you didn't get one from the
mission "Curtains Down". Then run back up the stairs and to the door into the
West Hallway. Then open the door to your left to look inside the Guards
Quarters.

There is a good chance that the outside patrolling Agent is inside. If he is
then stand at the north end of the West Hallway and wait for him to leave.
When he does then go inside the Guards Quarters. Stand at the southwest
corner of this room (by the desk chair) and look northeast.

When the Agent comes back then wait for him to stop in front of you then Whip
him. By Whipping these Agents then you have cleared a safe path to the
Weapons Box. Clean out the Box which will allow you to obtain the MP7.

Then drag the unconscious Agent back into the Laundry Room and put him into
the Container by the door. You should see a door on the east side of the
Laundry Room. Prep your SLP .40 Pistol and go through it to enter the
Kitchen. As you get to the next corner then you should see another door to
your right. This leads into the Living Room.

Now it is time to deal with Vinnie. He always goes with an Escort. There are
two places that you can kill him - the Living Room and the Upstairs Office.

Killing him in the Living Room (Poisoning him in his chair after luring the
Escort to the Power Switch) may risk you being seen by the Caterer through
the window. So I am going to use the Upstairs Office to ambush him.

However, if you kill him here then his Escort will eventually enter the room
and find the body which will negatively affect your rating. So I need to get
rid of the Escort first. The best way is to lure him to the Weapons Box by
dropping a weapon.

Open the door to look inside the Living Room. If everything has gone smoothly
up to this point then they should be leaving to go upstairs. Go behind
Vinnie's chair and drop your SLP .40 Pistol behind it but close to the cart
and lamp to the left.

The reason for this particular placement is that sometimes Vinnie himself
will find the weapon instead of the Escort. If Vinnie finds the weapon then
your Threat Meter will go back down quickly after it goes green and you will
have to get another Pistol (from one of the fallen Agents) and try again
later.

By placing the weapon here behind the chair then only the Escort will find
it. After dropping the weapon then head back to the Weapons Box. However, you
need to enter the Guards Quarters from the north door, which is for the
connecting bathroom. Sometimes the Escort will come in through the north door
instead of the other one.

The Weapons Box is by the door and you need to keep it open so you can
properly ambush the Escort if he ends up going through the north door instead
of the other one. If you stand by the Box and the north door is closed and
the Escort comes through the north door then you will get pushed out of the
way and be out of position to attack the Escort.

By coming in through the north door and standing by the Weapons Box then you
can keep the door open. While waiting then Prep your other Pistol. Grab and
Whip the Escort when he bends down over the Weapons Box and leave the body.

After dealing with him then Prep either your Poison or Fiber Wire and head up
to the 2nd Floor. Enter the Upstairs Office which is the central room on the
north side of this floor. Stand by the left side of the table and wait. When
Vinnie walks in then he will stand in front of you. Poison or Wire him and
grab his Bull .480.

After killing Vinnie then go back down and out the front door. At this point
you have the option of acquiring the Air Rifle. After leaving the house then
head to the Treehouse at the north side of the Map. There will be a female
Gardener picking at the ground near the Treehouse but as long as you are
dressed as an Agent then she will not cause any problems as you approach it.

Climb the Treehouse Ladder and you will find the Air Rifle on the table. Look
out the windows first to find the Pool Cleaner and patrolling Agent before
picking up the weapon. When they are out of view then pick up the Rifle and
immediately bring out the Detonator to initiate the Detonator Trick.

Climb back down the ladder and go southeast to your ICA Crate. Store the
weapon then head back to the FBI Van. For best results it is best to wait at
the back of the Van until the Caterer comes to stand by his van then leave
before entering the vehicle.

When he walks past the tree in the front yard then re-enter the FBI Van and 
switch back into your Suit. Open the door but do not go out yet. Rotate the
camera so you are looking east along the north side of the Van. You need to
look out for a roaming Trash Collector. If he is heading west and towards the
Caterer's Van then stay inside or he will become a Witness.

If you don't see him or see his back instead then run out of the Van (heading
northwest to make sure that the Nosy Neighbor doesn't see you), and head to
the Exit Point to successfully complete the mission.

The date: October 25, 2004.

47's next mission takes him to New Orleans. The American Secretary of the
Interior is targeted for assassination during the Mardi Gras parade. The
client does not want that to happen. So 47 is to take down the people who are
trying to kill the Secretary.

There are three assassins: Mark Purayah, Jr, Raymond Kulinsky, and Angelina
Mason. Mark is the leader, Raymomd is the assassin, and Angelina is recon and
support. Nobody knows where they are at but the payment to them has been
identified and should lead 47 to them if followed. The parade also has lot of
Civilians about so extra care needs to be exercised.

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

There are five levels to the map:

  >>Basement
  >>Shops and Restaurants, 3rd Floor
  >>Shops and Restaurants, 2nd Floor
  >>Shops and Restaurants, 1st Floor
  >>Streets and Back Alleys

When you look at the Streets and Back Alleys Map then you will see three bars
and three courtyards in addition to four Point of Interests. The first Point
of Interest is the Hideout where Mark Purayah is at. The one northeast of
that is a Weapons Crate that you can use for storing the SG552.

The two PoIs to the south are located in the West Courtyard. The one at the
southwest corner is another Weapons Crate. The other one is a Sniping
Platform that can be climbed up on so you can shoot Mark through the north
alley.

There are two additional Courtyards of note. The one just east of the West
Courtyard (with two alleys) is the West Central Courtyard. The one east of
that (with four alleys) is the East Central Courtyard.

The three bars are marked on the Map. There is a Guards Quarters in the
center of the Map and your Exit Point is south of that. The Secretary is on a
float that slowly moves clockwise around the main street. The Partygoers are
the cloud of circles within the main street.

You will start out in the 1st Floor Lobby of the Hotel at the southwest
corner of the West Central Courtyard.

The Shops and Restaurants, 2nd Floor has three Point of Interests. The one at
the northwest corner is the Office where you can find Mark and the SG552. The
one at the southeast corner of the West Central Courtyard is a balcony you
can use to look out into the street but there is a Civilian there that you
can also push over.

The one at the southeast corner of the East Central Courtyard is another
window you can use to snipe Raymond if he is at the Salsa Club.

Your ICA Crate is located on the 2nd Floor of the Hotel. To the east of the
ICA Crate is a room where you can find a Waiter Outfit that you will be using
later.

There is only one Point of Interest on the Shops and Restaurants, 3rd Floor
and that is another window you can use to snipe Raymond if he appears at the
Rock Bar.

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

This one was another pain to figure out mainly because of the different
places that the Delivery Guy goes to within the Courtyards and where Raymond
hides out at. The randomness of these locations added to the complexity of
the mission. I also tried several different ways of going after Angelina
before settling on the popular Piano dropping method.

It is important to note that the assassination *CANNOT* take place unless the
Diamonds Briefcase is actually delivered to Mark's desk. Preventing the
Briefcase from reaching the desk is the best way to protect the Secretary.

Of course, you can take the Diamonds Briefcase for yourself for extra money
(an additional $70,000). Even though it is listed in your objectives it is
entirely optional.

In addition, both Raymond and Angelina will not appear on the Map until you
acquire the Walkie Talkie from any of the three Targets (except at Rookie
difficulty).

You will see that the streets are jammed with people. These are Partygoers
and aren't classified as real Civilians in that they can't do anything if you
or somebody else starts shooting.

But regular Civilians can get mixed in with them so the Partygoers are in
essence camouflage. However, the Civilians, Cops, and Bird Guards can see you
just fine through them so the Partygoers are of no real use other than to
obscure your vision.

Unlike the Agents from the previous mission the Cops aren't overly sensitive
but you still don't want to stand around them too long. The strategy for this
mission will allow you to walk out with the Diamonds Briefcase and safely
acquire the SG552 and Kazo TRG.

Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't Mardi Gras supposed to be in *FEBRUARY*,
not October?

Finally, if you've earned Silent Assassin ratings on the previous four
missions then this is the earliest you can get the {5
Normal/Expert/Professional Silent Assassins} Accomplishment.

When you start the mission then you will be inside a restaurant in the lobby
of the Hotel. You will also be looking at the backside of the Delivery Guy,
the red bird, as he talks to a friend. After the conversation ends then the
Delivery Guy will leave through the front door. Follow him out the door. He
will take one of three paths:

  >>Southwest
    *********
      This means that he will go into the West Central Courtyard. Turn left 
      to go east then turn left again to enter the West Central Courtyard. 
      You may see a Cop as you enter the alley so keep away from him as you 
      proceed north. You will also see a Container just before you turn left 
      through the archway.

      Position yourself at the southeast corner of the north alley that leads 
      to the street and look north. The Delivery Guy will head south through 
      this alley and stop in front of you. Sedate him, change into the 
      Delivery Guy Outfit, and drag him to the Container for disposal.

      However, on rare occasions, the Cop that patrols this Courtyard may 
      enter the south alley just as you are disposing of the Delivery Guy and 
      attack you. Restart if this happens.

If the Delivery Guy heads east then he will head to the East Central
Courtyard. Run to the south entrance of the East Central Courtyard and look
west. The other two paths are as follows:

  >>East (Path 1)
    *************
      He will head east and walk past you. Head north into the alley and you 
      will see a Container in the northeast corner of the Courtyard. Stand 
      about three feet to the west of the Container and look northwest. He 
      will eventually stand near if not in front of you. Sedate him, change 
      into the Delivery Guy Outfit, and drag him to the Container for 
      disposal.

  >>East (Path 2)
    *************
      He will head southeast across the street and stop just southwest of 
      your position. Head north into the alley and to the Container. Stand 
      right at the southeast corner of the Container and look northeast. He 
      will then stand in front of you to take a piss. Sedate him, change into 
      the Delivery Guy Outfit, and drag him to the Container for disposal.

After obtaining the Delivery Guy Outfit and grabbing the Diamonds Briefcase
then head to the Hideout at the northwest corner of the Streets and Back
Alleys area. There will be a Bird Guard standing watch over the front door.
Just walk past him into the Hideout and he will tell you to go upstairs. When
you get inside then turn left to find the spiral stairs.

Go up to the top of the stairs and stop. One of the Bird Guards goes between
the top of the stairs and the Office. Stand near where he stands when he goes
to the Office. When he stops in front of you and you hear the door close then
Sedate him.

Drag him to the door then turn right and head to the dresser. Drop him here,
grab his MP9, then change into the Bird Guard Outfit. Then grab the Diamonds
Briefcase and drop it by the body.

Prep your Fiber Wire and enter the Office. Here you should see Mark walk
around the room. You will also see the SG552 propped against the desk. Go
behind the desk chair and stand behind it. When Mark sits down then Wire him.
Grab the Walkie Talkie (to make Raymond and Angelina appear on the Map) and
the Desert Eagle.

Now head downstairs to the first floor and to the large dresser. Stand at the
southwest corner of the dresser and look south at the main doors. When the
other Bird Guard you saw comes back here then he should stand in front of
you. Whip him then drag his body upstairs into the Office.

For safety's sake you may also want to drag the other Bird Guard into the
Office as well. Then grab the Diamonds Briefcase and drop it off here too.
Head to the door at the northeast corner of the first floor. Head through
that door then through the next one (near the TV) to enter the back courtyard
of the Hideout.

Head east past the archway and you will see a Container. You may also see a
Bird Guard here as well. If he is not here then step to the north of the
archway after you pass it then wait for him. When he stops then Sneak behind
him and Whip him. But *DON'T* put him in the Container yet.

Just to the north is a Weapons Crate. Store your MP9 in the Crate then grab
another MP9 from the Bird Guard and dispose of him in the Container. Head to
the alley that leads to the street but stand at the northeast corner and out
of view. Look south and wait.

Eventually another Bird Guard will head north into the alley but then turn
around and head back out. When he gets out of view then walk to the metal
hatch on the ground next to you and drop your MP9 here. Now head back inside
the Hideout, stand at the Weapons Box, and clean it out. Prep either your
Desert Eagle or MP9 while you are waiting.

The patrolling Bird Guard will find the MP9 and will return it to the Weapons
Box. When he bends down then Whip him.

With the Hideout cleared of all Bird Guards (except the one at the front
door) then go upstairs to grab the SG552, Holster it, get the Diamonds
Briefcase, and go back to the Weapons Crate. Store the SG552 in the Weapons
Crate and drop the Diamonds Briefcase next to it.

Leave the Diamonds Briefcase here for now. I will go after Angelina before
taking the Briefcase from the Hideout area. Head outside to the alley and
stop at the south end. Look across the street to find the north alleyway for
the West Courtyard. Head south through this alley to enter the Courtyard.

At the southwest corner of the Courtyard you should see a large Piano
overhead. The Winch for that is high up to the south. At the east side of the
courtyard is a cage you can climb to gain access to the Winch. Head to the
northeast corner and head west along the walkway. You will also notice two
Civilians below but they won't do anything as you go above them.

Continue to the northwest corner then jump the Balcony going south. Follow
the way until you reach the Winch and Plant Bomb. Go back down the same way
you came and go to the south entrance of the Hideout Courtyard then stop and
look south across the street. Look at your Map to find Angelina. She will be
going around the city and stopping at many spots.

She will stop in the alley to the Blues Bar then head to the east side of the
East Central Courtyard. After that then she will head to the alley entrance
of the Salsa Bar and head back to the southwest corner of the East Central
Courtyard.

Then she will head north to the alley of the Rock Bar. From there, then she
will head to the West Courtyard to stand under the Piano. Then she will head
to the Blues Bar alley and the pattern repeats. Wait for her to be near the
Rock Bar alley before doing anything.

When she gets to that point then look out for a Cop that is either standing
at the street corner southeast of your position or heading to the alley
leading into the West Courtyard.

If he is standing at the street corner or is not visible then head into the
alley and stop at the south end just before entering the Courtyard itself.
Hug the west wall and drop the MP9 (you already have an MP9 stored so you can
lose this one). Then climb back up to the northeast corner, prep your
Detonator, go into 1st Person Mode, and look southwest.

The patrolling Cop will find the MP9 and then leave to put it into the
Weapons Box at the Guards Quarters. This will keep him out of your hair for
awhile. When Angelina appears in the Courtyard then wait for her to get under
the Piano then bring out your Detonator and Detonate. The Piano will fall on
and kill her in an Accident.

Go back into 3rd Person Mode and run down to her so you can grab the SLP .40
.S. The Civilians have run out of the Courtyard to alert a Cop so they won't
see you do this.

Depending on how her body behaves when the Piano strikes her she may be
completely under it or bounced away. If she is not completely under the Piano
then she will eventually be discovered - but that won't negatively affect
your score because you killed her in an Accident.

If you're thinking "why not hide near the pipe leading up to the Sniping
Platform" then here's why you don't do that.

You see, if you hide behind the wall and then drop the Piano, it may fall in
such a way that you cannot get through the gaps at ether side of it and you
may be trapped. This will either cause you to restart from a save file or
restart altogether.

After killing Angelina and obtaining the SLP .40 .S then head back to the
Weapons Crate to grab the Diamonds Briefcase and head out through the Hideout
Courtyard to the street. Then head into the West Central Courtyard. Go near
the Container and look south to make sure that there is no Cop coming through
there.

When the coast is clear then climb up the pipe that leads to the second floor
balcony of the Hotel which is at the south side of the Courtyard. Head along
the balcony and Sneak through the open door. There is a person sleeping on
the bed and a Waiter Outfit on the floor.

Change into the Waiter Outfit then Sneak to the door, pick the lock, and go
into the hallway (there will be a couple making out but as long as you are
dressed as a Waiter then they will cause no problems). Head west and follow
the hallway to the room where your ICA Crate is and drop the Diamonds
Suitcase here. This will keep it safe until it is time to leave.

Now it is time to go after Raymond. While in this room then switch to either
your Fiber Wire or Poison. Look at your Map to find Raymond. He will be in
the upper floors of either the Rock Bar, Salsa Bar, or the Blues Bar.

The Waiter Outfit will allow you easy access to enter the clubs - you can't
enter them unless you are dressed as a patron or employee. You can also just
walk in through the front door - the Cops won't care as long as you are
appropriately dressed.

Here is how you approach Raymond in the three clubs (after going through the
front door of a bar):

  >>Rock Bar
    ********
      Head to the Kitchen/Restroom area and to the door that leads to the 
      stairs. However, the door is locked and needs to be picked. You need to 
      make sure that the Waiter, who may be standing at the northeast corner 
      of the room, to leave and for the Cook to be standing by the Container 
      before picking the lock.

      When the coast is clear then Pick the Lock and head up. When you get to 
      the top of the stairs then look through the Keyhole of the next door.

      Raymond will have two different patrol patterns inside this room. He 
      will either go through the door in a north-south pattern (stopping by 
      the large dresser) or do an east-west pattern (stopping near the 
      debris). Pick the lock when the coast is clear then enter the room.

      If he does the north-south pattern then Sneak to the dividing wall with 
      the debris then look towards the nearby dresser and wait for Raymond to 
      return. If he does the east-west pattern then Sneak to the south end of 
      the large dresser then wait for him to return. Then Sneak up behind him 
      and Wire/Poison him.

  >>Salsa Bar
    **********
      Head into the Kitchen and right up the stairs. When you get to the door 
      that leads inside the next room then Sneak inside. Just inside the door 
      are a couple of boxes that you should hide behind as you look west. 
      Raymond will go outside then stand by the large light in the middle of 
      the room. When he stops by the light then Sneak up behind him and 
      Wire/Poison him.

  >>Blues Bar
    *********
      Head into the Kitchen and through the door that leads to the stairs. 
      After going through the door then Toggle the Light Switch by the door 
      and hide in the Closet in the corner. You will see a couple head down 
      the stairs and back into the Kitchen. The woman will turn on the light 
      before leaving.

      After that then head up the stairs and to the door. Then check your 
      Map. Raymond will do a northwest-southeast pattern within the room. 
      But, sometimes, he may stand at the northwest corner for a very long 
      time. And there is quite a long distance to him from the door which 
      makes it possible for him to turn around before you can reach him.

      Fortunately, there is a Closet inside. Pick the Lock and Sneak to the 
      Closet if you feel you can make it there. After entering the Closet 
      then check your Map again. If he still hasn't moved or has moved to the 
      southeast end then moved back then head northeast to the south side of 
      the east dividing wall.

      If he still hasn't moved or returned to the northwest end of his patrol 
      then Sneak up behind him and Wire/Poison him.

After killing Raymond then pick up the Kazo TRG and bring out your Detonator
to initiate the Detonator Trick. Next, go back to your ICA Crate to store the
Rifle, retrieve the Diamonds Briefcase, and head to your Suit. Stand by the
Suit but *DON'T* switch back to it yet.

Look out for and wait for the patrolling Cop to go through the Courtyard you
are in before changing. After getting back into your Suit then head to the
Exit Point with the Diamonds Briefcase to successfully complete the mission.

47's next assignment takes him to the Rocky Mountains. Senator Bingham is
being blackmailed by pornography tycoon Lorne de Havilland. Lorne has a
compromising video of the Senator's son, Chad. Senator Bingham is in a tight
re-election campaign and the video could cost him the election.

The mission is to eliminate both Lorne and Chad and retrieve the Videotape
for the client.

There are nine levels to the map:

  >>Main House - Terrace
  >>Staff Terrace
  >>Pier
  >>Helipad
  >>Studio Floor
  >>Main House - 2nd Floor
  >>Main House - 1st Floor
  >>Staff Floor
  >>Pier Inside

The Pier is where you start at and has your primary Exit Point along with
your ICA Crate. The Main House - Terrace is where you can find the glass
bottomed Jacuzzi and Chad himself. The Staff Terrace is where you can find a
Power Switch and see underneath the glass bottomed Jacuzzi. The Helipad has a
secondary Exit Point which is a helicopter.

The Studio Floor has three Points of Interests. The first one, to the
northeast, is where you can plant a mine to drop studio lights down onto the
floor below. The second Point of Interest, near the center, is where you can
find the incriminating Videotape. The last one, to the east, is another
Weapons Crate.

This is also where you can find Lorne wandering about between the Stage and
his Bedroom.

The Main House - 2nd Floor has a Guards Quarters (where you can find the CCTV
Tape) and one Point of Interest which is a rock ladder you can climb to reach
the roof.

The Main House - 1st Floor has two Points of Interests. The first one, to the
north, is a secret passage through a small waterfall. The second one, to the
south, is where you can find a bottle of Aphrodisiac.

The Staff Floor has two Point of Interests. The first one, on the left, is
where you can find the Waiter Outfit. The second one, on the right, is where
you can find a Weapons Crate. The Pier Inside Map has one Point of Interest
which is the the window that looks into the Guard Room.

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

For this mission I included ways to avoid being seen by the CCTV Cameras on
the Pier which will save you some work and how to acquire the CCTV Tape in
case you get caught by the CCTV Camera. There is also a Mystery Assassin in
this mission. You won't get anything additional for taking her down but I've
included an easy means of dealing with her should you want to confront her
anyways.

And I think that Lorne's mansion is one of the coolest mansions I have ever
seen in a vidgame.

If you're playing on Normal Difficulty and you've spent very little or
nothing on upgrading then this is the earliest you can get the {High Roller}
Accomplishment on the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions.

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

For this particular strategy a Pistol is required at the start. An SLP. 40 .S
Pistol or Silenced Silverballer is highly recommended.

When you start the mission then you will be by your primary Exit Point on the
Pier. Head north onto the bridge and turn right when you get to the end. Head
to the nook where your ICA Crate is and quickly Prep your Pistol. Leave the
nook and continue east to the southeast corner of the Pier area and you will
find a Christmas Guard by the corner of the railing.

Stop just behind this Guard and against the railing then turn north. You
should find the wooden archway leading into the Pier Inside. Just above it is
the CCTV Camera which is doing a left-right sweep. Beyond the archway is the
window for the Guard Room. Rotate your camera and you should also see the
Christmas Guard inside.

You don't want to get too close to the archway or you may be seen by the CCTV
Camera. You can get past it without been caught but it requires certain
timing.

When the Guard turns right and leaves the window then look at the CCTV
Camera. When it sweeps almost all the way to the left then quickly run
alongside the railing and through the right side of the archway. If you do
this right then it will not see you.

It is important to note that the CCTV Camera and the Guard will not be timed
the same on each attempt. The Guard will be away from the window for a short
time and sometimes the CCTV Camera will not be in the right position to make
a clean run for the door before he comes back to the window.

This may force you to make your move too soon and you will be caught before
it is all the way to the left.

However, since it doesn't take you too much out of your way and that the CCTV
Tape isn't too hard to acquire, you can ignore the CCTV Camera and let
yourself be seen if you wish to do so. This will make it easier in dealing
with the Guard.

When you get past the archway then quickly get up the door, bring out your
Pistol, open the door, then Sneak inside. You should find the Guard standing
by a vending machine.

Sneak up behind him and Whip him then look southwest to find the big red
button that deactivates the Laser Sensor which is just outside the window.
Press the button to deactivate the Sensor then drag the Guard through the
door. The first Guard that you passed will be near the center of the Pier
area and out of view.

Drag the Guard through the deactivated Laser Sensor and to the Elevator. Drop
him here and grab his SLP .40 Pistol. This Pistol can be used in acquiring
the CCTV Tape.

The reason for dragging the Guard to the Elevator is that the first Guard
will come into the Guard Room from time to time so you can't leave the body
there. And this will be a good place to leave your Suit.

Switch into the Christmas Guard Outfit and Call the Elevator. While it is
coming down then head back into the Guard Shack, stand between the door and
the vending machine, and look west. The first Guard will eventually come
into this room. When he stops then Sneak up behind him and Whip him. Leave
the body - nobody else comes here.

Although the Christmas Guard Outfit is a good disguise it won't allow you
access to the upper floors where Lorne is located. For that you need a
Bodyguard Outfit. Thankfully, there is an easy way to acquire one.

Go back into the Elevator and enter it then take it up to the Staff Floor.
When the door opens then you will see two doors - one ahead of you and one to
the right. Take the one on the right to enter a Wine Cellar where you will
find a Bodyguard sitting in a chair. Get up behind him, listen for the sound
of the door that you came through closing, then Sedate him.

Then go and change into the Bodyguard Outfit. You will now be able to have
full access to everyplace in the Mansion. Go through the door at the
southwest corner of the Wine Cellar to enter the Break Room. You should see a
Guard sitting in a chair in the southwest corner of the next room.

There is another Guard that patrols this room and may be standing next to the
Weapons Box next to the vending machine. After entering the Break Room then
turn right and go through the next door into the stairwell. Turn left after
going through the door and go up the stairs. Continue going up then go
through the first door you get to which should lead you into the Kitchen.

On one side of the Stove is a Sausage (you will also find another one on the
floor near a trash can). If everything has gone smoothly up to this point
then you will see the drunken Santa nearby. Stand by the Sausage and wait for
the drunken Santa to leave the Kitchen.

The Sausage is going to be used against Lorne's small dog. The Dog needs to
be knocked out before you can do anything to Lorne otherwise its running
around and yapping will attract Guards.

Killing the dog will not count against your score in any way so it is best to
Poison the Sausage and save the last of your Sedative. After Poisoning the
Sausage then pick it up, Prep the SLP .40 Pistol you got from the Guard, and
go through the door at the east side of the Kitchen.

Here you will see some filing cabinets to your right and a large sofa to your
left. Turn left to find some shelves next to the sofa. Here you will find a
bottle of Aphrodisiac. Pick it up then continue east and turn south at the
corner.

Go through the next door and you should see a fireplace to your left. The
door you came through is the Staff Only door. At this point, if you got
caught by the CCTV Camera, then you will need to do the following:

  >>Acquiring the CCTV Tape
    ***********************
      Right next to the Staff Only door you just came through is a set of 
      curved stairs leading up. When you get to the top then you should see a 
      pair of double doors to your right. Beyond these doors is a small room 
      just outside the Guard Quarters where the CCTV Tape is at.

      There are two Guards to note here. One Guard goes between the two desks 
      within the room (I'll call him the Desk Guard). The second Guard will 
      come in through the south door, stand just inside the room for awhile, 
      then leave, go through the small room, and stand on the Balcony outside 
      (I'll call him the Patrolling Guard).

      Because of the Desk Guard you cannot just walk in and take the CCTV 
      Tape - you'll blow your cover and get attacked. So, in order to safely 
      get the Tape, I will need to knock out both Guards.

      When you go through the double doors then you will see the door leading 
      into the Guards Quarters to your right and the door to the Balcony to 
      your left. On the wall near the Guard Quarters door is a large picture.

      Stand by the picture and wait for the Patrolling Guard to go to the 
      Balcony. You cannot ambush him there - you will seen from below. 
      Therefore you need to ambush him inside. It is best to use the Sedative 
      but you can still Whip him if you wish.

      After the Guard gets onto the Balcony then bring out the Pistol and 
      drop it in front of the picture then back away a couple of steps 
      towards the Balcony and quickly Prep the Sedative or your other Pistol. 
      When the Guard comes over to pick up the Pistol then Sedate or Whip 
      him.

      Prep your Pistol then stand by the door and open it. Then stand just 
      inside the doorway, to keep the door open, and observe the Desk Guard.

      Wait for the Desk Guard to move to either of the two desks then Sneak 
      in and Whip him. Then go over and acquire the CCTV Tape. Go back out 
      and drag the first Guard into the Guards Quarters (so he isn't seen by 
      any other Guard as you leave the area). After that then retrace your 
      way back down to the Staff Only door.

From the Staff Only door then continue south and turn left at the corner then
turn left again to enter the main Bar area. Continue forward through the Bar
area and into the hallway that has the flashing heart above it. This leads
into the VIP Area. After you go through the hallway then you will enter into
a large indoor patio area.

Continue northwest and you will find a door with a couple of Guards posted.
Go though the door and into the Elevator ahead.

It should be noted that they won't allow Christmas Guards past this door.
This is where the Bodyguard Outfit comes in. Take the Elevator up to the
Studio Floor. Check your Map to see where Lorne is at. He can either be at
the Studio (on the east side of the floor) or on the Balcony to his Bedroom
(at the southwest corner of the floor).

It is best that he be in the Studio so you can set things up. Head to his
bedroom then drop the Sausage just inside the door (and Prep a Pistol). Then
head to the Balcony. Hang near the west set of doors and wait for Lorne to
come to the Balcony. As he is walking to the Balcony then his dog will eat
the Poisoned Sausage and will be out of action by the time it gets to the
door leading outside.

Wait for Lorne to stop at the railing then Sneak up to him and push him over.
Although there may be Guards down below they can't see you because of the
angle and that you are crouched when you are Sneaking.

After killing off Lorne I now need to go after the Videotape. And to safely
do that I need to knock out some Guards first. There are three Guards on this
floor. One is inside the room where the Videotape is and goes east-west
within the room.

Another has three stops in his patrol pattern. One stop is inside the Studio
(and goes through the room with the Videotape to get there), another is
inside the hallway with the Elevator, and the last stop is right by the
Bedroom door.

The last Guard goes between the Studio and the end of the hallway west of the
Weapons Crate. It should be noted that if you still need a TMP then you can
Sneak up and Whip him at the end of his route in the hallway after you
acquire the Videotape.

Head to the hallway where the Elevator is and stand between the two pictures
while looking at the Elevator. The Guard will eventually pass you by and stop
just ahead of you. Sneak up to him and Whip him. Leave the body - Lorne is
the only other person to go through this room and he is already dead at this
point in the mission.

From here, head south and turn left to find the door that goes into the room
with the Videotape. Open the door and Nudge forward a little to keep it open.
If you see the Guard when you open the door then wait for him to leave and
return before doing anything. The last thing you want to do is have him turn
around while you are Sneaking up on him so it is best to wait.

When he gets back then Sneak up on him and Whip him. Leave the body and go
get the Videotape which is on the desk to the south with two active monitors.
After acquiring the Videotape then it is time to go after Chad.

Go back to the Elevator and down to the 1st Floor. Then head back to the Bar
area. When you get here look out for a Martini Glass at the corner. This
Martini Glass is what is being served to Chad. If it is not here when you get
to the Bar then you will have to leave.

The reason for this is that, on Professional difficulty, you will cause your
Threat Meter to creep up if you stand around the Bar and wait. Best thing to
do is go out the south door and stand by the railing. Then look left to find
the Jacuzzi, with Chad, and the Waiter. When the Waiter walks past then
simply follow him back to the Bar.

You should also see a prompt to Add Aphrodisiac when you approach the Martini
Glass. Go ahead and Add Aphrodisiac - even though there are tons of people,
including Guards, in the Bar nobody will care, even the Bartender who is
looking right at you.

After that then head back into the VIP Area. Just past the end of the hallway
turn right to find the door that leads into the Grotto area. After going
through the door then head north where you will find a small waterfall in the
next corner. Turn east at this corner and go through the set of double doors.

Here you will find a couple making out in the hallway. One of them is the
Mystery Assassin who is female:

  >>The Mystery Assassin
    ********************
      As noted, there is absolutely nothing to gain by killing her. However, 
      if you insist on facing her then here is the way to do it.

      When the couple breaks up then follow her into the room. Then a short 
      cutscene will play. After the cutscene then she will be behind you. If 
      you do not do anything then another cutscene will play in which she 
      will kill you.

      You also cannot kill her before the first cutscene plays. She is a 
      Civilian until the cutscene plays then, after it, she will become a 
      Target. You have to kill her before the second cutscene. But, as noted, 
      she will be behind you.

      However, the camera will be looking at her. So, *IMMEDIATELY* after the 
      first cutscene ends then go into 1st Person Mode which will instantly 
      turn you around to look at her ugly face. Then quickly Punch her out. 
      She will be pulling out a gun and your cover will be blown as you hit 
      her. After she finishes pulling out the gun then she will fall against 
      the sofa.

      Then Poison her mangy unconscious ass and be done with it. Don't worry 
      about the blown cover - it won't count since you killed her. It is one 
      of the few times you can blow your cover and not get punished for it.

      After killing her then go back into 3rd Person Mode, head to the door, 
      and look through the Keyhole. Wait for the Bodyguard that patrols this 
      hallway to walk right or left past the Keyhole before leaving the room.

Now put yourself in the northeast corner of this hallway and wait. Chad will
eventually be served the spiked drink then leave with a female companion. He
will walk past you and enter a room to the south of you. Wait for him to
enter and for the door to close.

Then wait about five seconds, open the door, and let him see you. He will
then get up and leave since you performed what could be considered, in this
game anyway, "coitus interruptus" on him.

As he is getting up then head south through the door and run down the stairs
ahead of Chad. Eventually you will get to a Balcony which is part of the
Staff Terrace floor. Stand at the southwest corner and wait. When Chad stops
at this corner then push him over. This will take care of your last objective
other than escaping.

After killing Chad then go to the north side of the Balcony. You can jump
over the railing and onto a ledge. Head west along the ledge. This ledge
leads to the other side of the Staff Terrace floor. Don't worry about the
bats you stir up along the way.

When you jump over the railing at the other end of the ledge then go through
the doors leading inside to the Staff Floor area and to the Elevator that
goes back down to the Pier. When you get back down then switch back into your
Suit.

Then go back to the archway and stop. You will need to dodge the CCTV Camera
again. Stand at the left side of the archway and look up to find it. When it
sweeps right and stops then run out and along the railing. If you do this
right then you will not get caught by it.

Another option, and the main reason for bringing a silenced weapon, is to
shoot it then leave. If you got caught and had to get the CCTV Tape then just
walk through the archway.

After safely getting past the CCTV Camera then head to the Exit Point to
successfully complete the mission.

47's next mission takes him to Mississippi. He is to shut down a gang known
as the Gators. The Gators handle the distribution of drugs up and down the
Mississippi River. They use a riverboat as their means of moving the
merchandise.

47 is to eliminate the six Gator members and their boss, Skip Muldoon. He is
also to retrieve any documents in Skip's safe which is on the upper deck. The
upper decks of the riverboat are exclusive to the Gators and are off-limits.
Of course, that means little to a professional like 47.....

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

There are five levels to the map:

  >>5th Deck, Gators Private Deck
  >>4th Deck, Restaurant Deck
  >>3rd Deck, Cabin Deck
  >>2nd Deck, Staff Quarters
  >>1st Deck, Engine Room

The Engine Room deck is where you start and also has your Exit Point. You
will start off on the north end and you must make your way through the
normally off-limits Staff Quarters deck to get to the Exit Point which is at
the south end.

Your ICA Crate is in a small room not far from where you start. The Engine
Room is at the center of the map.

The Staff Quarters has two Point of Interests. The north one is where you can
find a key to the Engine Room. The second is the Weapons Room where you can
find the FN-2000 rifle.

The Cabin Deck has no Points of Interests but you can find one of the Gators
standing in the Main Hallway. The VIP Rooms are to the south along with the
stairs leading up to the VIP Area. The stairs leading down to the Staff
Quarters are at the east central side of this map.

The Restaurant Deck has two Points of Interests. The north one is where you
can find the Cake you can use against Skip. The south one is where you can
find a Weapons Crate.

The Gators Private Deck is where you can find one Point of Interest which is
the Safe where the Pictures are kept. Skip and three Gators can be found on
this floor.

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

This was a tough level to figure out because of all of the Targets and
Pistolwhipping needed to ensure a clean Silent Assassin run. The most popular
method of getting rid of the Gator on the third floor is by pushing him into
the river near the beginning of the mission. But I decided on a different
approach and saved him for last.

One of the irritating things I found at Expert and Professional difficulty
was that you could get your Threat Meter in the yellow if you wore the Sailor
Outfit in certain areas. But I discovered that if you wore the absolute
correct outfit for these areas then you can keep your Threat Meter under
control.

One interesting thing to note that, if you wear the Sailor Outfit and try to
go up to the VIP Area, then you will be searched by another Sailor. I wonder
why that is?

Finally, all the Gators will be numbered in the order they will be
dispatched.

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

When you start the mission then you will be on the north end of the 1st Deck
facing the main stairs leading up to the 3rd Deck. Go southeast past the
pillars then angle south and go past the Power Switch. When you get past the
Power Switch then angle southwest to find the door that leads into the Engine
Room. Directly north of it is a large group of crates.

Quickly Pick the Lock then stand by these crates, look directly at the door,
and Prep your Poison. After awhile Gator #1 will appear and will go through
this door. When he opens the door then bring out your Poison and run towards
him as he goes through it.

When you catch up to him then quickly Poison him. Then drag him behind one of
the two nearby boilers and grab his Bull .480 (you'll need it). Then go back
outside and head back to where you started.

From here, run up the stairs and turn right at the next platform then go up
the rest of the stairs. When you get to the top then run left and go south
along the side of the boat. Run until you get to a door then go through it.
You will be in the middle of the boat at this point.

Continue forward and turn right at the corner to go south along the Main
Hallway here on the Cabin Deck. Run through the set of double doors to enter
the VIP Rooms area. Continue forward and turn left at the next corner.

If you are in the right place then you should see a Restroom. Go into the
Restroom and enter the first stall on your right. Stand in front of the
toilet but stay just far back to keep the door open. If you get close enough
to the toilet and let the door close then you may be pushed out of position
later.

When you are in position and waiting then Prep the Bull .480. Shortly after
you enter the stall then a Purser will go into this stall and take a piss.
When he starts pissing then Grab him and move him off to the right then Whip
him, exit the stall, and close the door. This will prevent him from becoming
a problem for the next step in this mission.

Now go into the other stall and stand by the toilet but staying just far back
to keep the door open. After awhile a Sailor will enter the Restroom and use
this stall. Grab him, move him off to the left, then Whip him and change into
the Sailor Outfit.

After changing into the Sailor Outfit then go back into the other stall and
grab the Master Keycard from the unconscious Purser.

Exit the Restroom and go through the Staff Only door directly west of your
position. Ahead of you is a White Trellis that can be climbed up to the 4th
Deck. At the top of the Trellis is the west end of a curved walkway that goes
around the south end of the boat. It also has the stairs that go up to the
5th Deck and a Weapons Crate that sits underneath them.

Gator #2 also patrols this deck. He will go from the Galley on the west side,
stop by the railing just underneath the stairs, head into the VIP Area at the
east side, then go back to the Galley.

You cannot be seen climbing the Trellis but, once you are on top, then you
won't have any problems. However, as you climb, look up and north. You will
see part of the 5th Deck and may spot a 1st Class Purser or one of the other
Gators. As long as he is standing still or out of view then you should be
okay.

A major reason for climbing the Trellis is because if you went up the stairs
leading up to the VIP Area then you will be searched and suspicions may be
raised, especially at the higher difficulty levels. Climbing the Trellis to
access the 4th Deck will allow you to safely bypass that.

After you climb up to the 4th Deck then go into the nearby corner and look
south down the walkway. Eventually you will see Gator #2 head in your
direction then go through a door into the Galley. You should be too far away,
even at Professional difficulty, to spook him. When he goes inside the Galley
then head forward but stop by the life preserver.

When he exits then wait a couple of seconds and proceed forward and close the
door. Continue forward and follow him but not too closely. Eventually you
will find the stairs leading up and a Weapons Crate underneath. Gator #2 will
stop to smoke for a bit.

When you get to the stairs then Sneak under the stairs and continue towards
his back. As you get close to him then bring out your Pistol and Grab him but
*DON'T* push him over. Instead, sidestep left just past the pole then Drop
Body (which will throw him over the railing).

Why do this? Because if you just push him over then he will land on the
Engine Room deck by the Exit Point. The body may be found by either a Sailor
or Purser down there. By Grabbing him and moving him to the left past the
pole then he will land in the water instead allowing for easier disposal.

In addition, although you could stand underneath the stairs and ambush him
when he stops, it is not recommended at Professional difficulty. More than
likely he will just turn to look at you instead which will make it very
difficult or impossible to ambush him properly. That is why it is best to
Sneak up behind him this way.

After killing Gator #2 then place the Bull .480 in the nearby Weapons Crate
as you will not need it for the rest of the mission. You should also Prep the
Sedative. The reason for that is because there is something I am going to do
which will make things easier on the upper deck.

And that will be ambushing the 1st Class Purser that goes between the 5th
Deck and to the Kitchen. He provides Burgers to the Gators up there and will
leave when the plate is empty. Ambushing him will make things easier later.

At this point in the mission he can either be on the 5th Deck or in the
Kitchen on the 4th Deck. At Professional difficulty then he will be on the
5th Deck.

The reason for this is that at the higher difficulty levels his patrol is a
little more frequent, sometimes leaving without the plate, and thus his
timing is different. There are two ways to go about ambushing him depending
on where he is:

  >>Kitchen
    *******
      Head along the east side of the 4th Deck and you will find the door 
      that leads inside the VIP Area. Stand at the end of the walkway up 
      against the north wall and look south so the door is to your right. 
      When the Purser goes through the door then close the door and follow 
      him.

      Pull out your Sedative and run to catch up to him. Sedate him in 
      mid-stride and drag his body to the Weapons Crate. The reason for this 
      is that there is a Guard just below and he may see you if you try to 
      change into the 1st Class Purser Outfit.

      Dragging the body to the Crate immediately after the ambush will keep 
      him from getting involved.

  >>5th Deck
    ********
      Head up the east set of stairs to the 5th Deck, stop when you get near 
      the top, and look north. You should see a bench and a brown door above 
      it. You will also see some Gators going in and out of the door.

      When you finally see the 1st Class Purser go through the door then 
      quickly go back down then stop next to the stairs between the second 
      and third post for the stair-rail. Then enter Sneak Mode and wait. When 
      the Purser walks past you then Sneak forward.

      Get directly behind him, bring out the Sedative, then get out of Sneak 
      Mode and run up behind him so you can Sedate him before he gets too 
      far. The reason for doing it this way is because he is very sensitive 
      at higher difficulty levels and will stop and turn around if you don't 
      Sneak up on him first. After ambushing him then drag him to the Weapons 
      Crate.

When you get him to the Weapons Crate then change into the 1st Class Purser
Outfit and head along the west side of the deck to enter the Galley. Pick the
Cake up from the nearby table then head back to the Weapons Crate. Drop the
Cake then Poison it and pick it back up. From here, head up to the 5th Deck.

When you get to the top of the stairs then head north towards the door to
find Gator #5 standing guard. He will stop you so you can be searched. This
is why you needed to get rid of the Bull .480. After being searched then go
through the door. You will be in a small hallway with two doors. Go through
the one on the left to enter the Restroom.

Go to the southwest corner and drop the Cake, stand in front of the toilet,
Prep your Fiber Wire, and wait. In addition to Gator #5 by the door there are
two additional Gators patrolling the Private Deck.

Gator #4 will go through the main Recreation Room and head north into Skip's
Office area. Then he will head through the Bedroom and go outside. Then he
will head south, stop at the southeast corner of the building for awhile,
then head back inside.

Gator #3 will patrol the east side of the building then go inside. He will
stand inside the Recreation Room for a bit then head into the Restroom before
heading back outside. Skip himself will go inside the Bathroom to the east,
back into the Office, go into the Bedroom, then outside before going back
inside.

When Gator #3 goes to use the Restroom then Wire him when he stands at the
toilet. Leave the body since nobody else goes in here. Now go into the
Recreation Room.

Since you knocked out the 1st Class Purser this will make it easier to get
rid of Gator #4. Make sure that Gator #4 isn't in the Recreation Room then go
to the Light Switch to the south side of the room, turn it off, back up just
a little, then Prep the Fiber Wire.

When Gator #4 re-enters the Recreation Room then he will turn the lights back
on. As he is trying to do so then quickly bring out your Fiber Wire and kill
him. Then drag his body into the Restroom just to be safe. Turn the lights
back on if you killed him before he toggled the switch.

From here, head back out past Gator #5, get close to the thin pillars, then
turn around and head to the stained glass window for the Restroom. Stop here
and look east towards Gator #5. Wait for him to stand with his back to you
then Sneak up and Wire him. You can either leave the body or drag him inside.

If you want the Shotgun then grab it and place it inside the Weapons Crate.
Just to be safe you should use the east set of stairs going down because of
the 1st Class Purser at the west side of the deck.

Go back inside and retrieve the Cake. Head to the door leading into Skip's
Office, stand to the left, and open the door. Make sure that Skip's "bitch"
(as it's stated in the Target Info) is in the Bathroom before entering. Place
the Cake on the desk and leave the room. Stand by the door and wait. Skip
will eventually sample the Cake and die shortly thereafter.

Go back inside the Office and drag his body into the northwest corner of the
Recreation Room (to make sure it isn't found by the "bitch" if he somehow
leaves the Bathroom). Grab the Desert Eagle from Skip, as it will be your new
Pistolwhipping weapon, then head into the Bedroom and open the Safe to
Retrieve the Pictures.

After that then leave and head down to the 4th Deck. Instead of going down
the Trellis I am going through the VIP Area. Head along the east side of the
deck and go through the door at the end. You should see the stairs leading
down and with the Sailor that would search you standing at the top.

Just walk past him and head down to the 3rd Deck. Since you're going down and
not up then they will not cause any problems. I still need to go after Gator
#6 but I am going to clear the way to the Exit Point first so I can safely
get to it in my Suit and acquire a new weapon in the process.

Head north past the Restrooms where your Suit still is and through the double
doors going into the Main Hallway. Ahead of you, past the hallway junction,
is Gator #6 and his Girlfriend enjoying themselves. They won't break up
unless you approach them. I prefer to leave them this way until I want them
to break up.

This is also why I went on the walkway alongside the boat instead of going
through the Main Hallway near the beginning of this mission - so I wouldn't
break them up too soon.

When you get to the hallway junction then take a right and head for the door
leading outside. Right by the door is the stairs going down to the Staff
Quarters. Go down the stairs and through the Staff Only door. Since you are
already dressed as a 1st Class Purser then you should have no problems.

Just right after you enter you should see a door to your left. Go through it
and you should see a Closet at the north side of the room. Stand five feet
from the Closet and look north at the right side of it. Eventually an
Engineer will come into the room and stand in front of you. Whip him when he
does.

He goes between the Engine Room and this room and getting rid of him will
make for one less person in the hallways. Change into his Outfit which will
make it easier on you when you are down near the Engine Room.

At Professional difficulty, if you go down there in any other Outfit then
your Threat Meter can creep up pretty quickly if you are looked at too long
by any Sailor or Engineer inside the Engine Room area.

After acquiring the Engineer Outfit then leave the room and turn left to find
the main hallway on this floor. Proceed south until you see two Sailors come
out to meet in the hallway and then go back around the corner and out of
view.

Wait until you see them break up before proceeding. On rare occasions if you
pass them by when they are in the hallway they may get stuck, meaning that
they remain in the hallway, and force you to either reload from a saved game
or restart. By staying back then you can prevent this and make sure they
break up.

After they return to their respective rooms then head south down the hallway.
On the wall to your right, as you proceed, you will find two doors. The first
door is the Weapons Room. We'll come back here later. The second door, and
the one to go through, is the Locker Room. The room will be dark but leave
the lights off.

Head to the north to find some lockers. You will also find a Purser Outfit
laying on a bench. Stand between the Purser Outfit and the partially open
locker while looking southwest. Eventually another Sailor will enter this
room and stand in front of you at the end of his route.

Whip him and leave the body. This will make for one less person wandering the
Staff Quarters deck. You can also take his Snub Nosed Pistol if you want.
Leave the Locker Room and turn right to go back south.

At the junction, turn left and proceed through the next door. This will lead
you to the stairs down to the Engine Room deck. Go down the stairs and turn
180-degrees to find the next door. Go through the door to enter a T-shaped
room. Hug the wall to your left, go to the middle of this room, then stand
and look north while in 1st Person Mode.

A Sailor will eventually come into this room. If you wore a different Outfit
then your Threat Meter will rapidly increase as he approches. The Engineer
Outfit will keep that in check. He will stop in one of two places within this
room. When he stops then sidestep to get behind him then Sneak up and Whip
him. Then head to the west door. Go through it and stop.

Near the top of the door is a light. Head south along the wall and stop when
you get to the *FIFTH* light then look south. Eventually a Purser will come
and stop by the railing. Sneak up behind him and Whip him.

And, by Whipping this Purser, then you have also eliminated the last person
that roams the Staff Quarters and the south end of the Engine Room deck. This
completely clears the way for you to safely come back down later with your
Suit.

I still need to change into the Purser Outfit to safely get at Gator #6. But
I'm not going to do that yet. There are a couple of things I am going to do
first.

Head back up into the Staff Quarters and to the door of the Weapons Room.
Look through the Keyhole. You should see the back of a Sailor looking at a
wall. Sneak through the door, get up behind him, and Whip him. You should see
a FN-2000 on a nearby table with a Rifle Suitcase on the floor. Leave that
for now.

Go back up to the Restroom and change back into your Suit. Then go back down
to the Staff Quarters. The thing here is that, even though you can be seen
heading down the stairs by Sailors and Civilians, nobody will say anything
unless they see you go through the Staff Only door at the bottom of the
stairs which is unseen from above.

But this is not a problem since you have taken down the only two people who
either go through or near this door (the Sailor you ambushed in the Locker
Room and the Engineer). When you get back down then go into the Weapons Room.
Grab the FN-2000 and the Rifle Suitcase (to put it in) then go back down to
the unconscious Purser.

Switch into the Purser Outfit which will also drop the Rifle Suitcase. By
doing this I have now placed the FN-2000 and the Suit very close to the Exit
Point. Now it is time to go after Gator #6.

From here, head up to the Cabin Deck and approach Gator #6. Both him and his
Girlfriend will go into the nearby room. Go up against the opposite wall and
look at the door. After a short conversation then the Girlfriend will leave.

Wait a few seconds then go through the open door, take a couple of steps, and
stop. If you wait too long and the door closes then use the Master Keycard
you obtained earlier to open the door. When the door closes then Sneak up
behind him and Wire him. Then quickly leave the room and close the door. From
here, run back to the Staff Quarters.

When you get down here then run to your Suit, change back, and grab the
FN-2000 then run to the Exit Point to successfully complete the mission and
before the Girlfriend finds the body of Gator #6.

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

There are four levels to the map:

  >>Mansion, Attic
  >>Mansion, 2nd Floor
  >>Mansion, 1st Floor
  >>Outside

The Outside Map is where you start and you will be next to your primary Exit
Point which is at the south end of the Map. A secondary Exit Point is at the
Boat House at the northeast side.

The only Point of Interest is the Wedding Bell just south of the Mansion.
There is also a Guards Quarters at the northwest side near the Family Graves.

The 1st Floor has nothing of interest but has the Greenhouse, to the west,
and the Reception Area, to the north. The 2nd Floor also has nothing of
interest but has a Guards Quarters at the northeast corner. Pappy's room is
near the southwest corner of this floor.

The Attic has a Power Switch and three Point of Interests. These are the
Winches that you can use to drop Chandeliers onto the 1st Floor when properly
mined.

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

Compared to the last mission this one was a breeze. However, it was very
frustrating at first. No matter what I was doing I kept getting lots of
Witnesses (anywhere from 12 to 23). After doing some research on Google I
found that it was because of the Elephant Rifle.

My initial strategy included always obtaining the Elephant Rifle. And, by
walking towards the ICA Crate, I was unknowingly creating Witnesses. The game
states that the people aren't going to be alarmed if you are seen with a
weapon but didn't say that you would create problems for your rating.

After playing one time without obtaining either the Elephant Rifle and/or
Shotgun I earned an easy Silent Assassin rating. However, the weapon can be
acquired without generating Witnesses using the Detonator Trick and this
walkthrough has been rewritten with that in mind.

Most people tend to Poison the Wedding Cake to kill the Groom but I prefer to
drop a Chandelier on him. Less risky if done correctly. I also prefer to kill
Pappy inside his room rather than risk being seen outside trying to do him
in.

However, one thing about the Elephant Rifle is that, even though nobody will
freak out if you are seen with it, you will create a lot of Witnesses as you
travel to the ICA Crate to store it which will greatly impact your rating.

But this can be used to your advantage if you are playing the Xbox 360 and
PS3 versions. You can use this quirk to get lots of Notoriety safely and
easily for one of the Accomplishments:

  >>{Notorious} Accomplishment (Part 1)
    ***********************************
      It is best to do this on the Normal difficulty level on your initial 
      attempt since you will need to do a lot of killing in the next mission.

      In order to obtain the Elephant Rifle safely without using the 
      Detonator Trick you will need the Gangmember Outfit. Before going after 
      the weapon it is best to kill both the Groom and Pappy first. After 
      killing Pappy and retracing your steps back to the Kitchen then turn 
      right to go through the door and turn left to go through the door 
      outside.

      When you get outside then head east towards the Boat House. It is okay 
      to go through here since this is how the Priest arrived. Go through the 
      double doors and turn right. Continue forward and turn left at the 
      corner. Continue forward and stop near the next doorway. You may see a 
      Gangmember at the northeast corner near the boat through the doorway.

      Wait for him to leave then head to the northeast corner, stand up 
      against the chain, and look south towards the boat. When he comes back 
      here then Whip him. Leave the body, change into the Gangmember Outfit, 
      and retrace your way back to Pappy's room and grab the Elephant Rifle 
      off of the wall near his body.

      From here, you need to be seen by as many people as possible before 
      leaving with the weapon. Go *EVERYWHERE* in and around the Mansion 
      grounds. This will ensure that you get as many Witnesses as possible. 
      When you have done this then finish the mission - don't worry about 
      your Suit.

      **NOTE: On the PS3 version you may want to skip the Restricted Area 
              where the Family Graves are at. For some reason the Guards 
              there may shoot at you if you try to enter with the Rifle.

      If you still need a Shotgun for your weapons collection then go to the 
      ICA Crate to store the Elephant Rifle. Then go to the platform where 
      the Guests are shooting at the Alligators. Wait for one of them to 
      place the Shotgun on one of the crates. Grab it then head to your Exit 
      Point.

      You can safely get up to 62 Notoriety points by doing this (I've gotten 
      90 Witnesses during one attempt). Then max out the rest of your 
      Notoriety Rating by Rampaging your way through the next mission, "A 
      House of Cards".

      It may be a good idea to not save after this and the next mission. 
      After completing "A House of Cards" and acquiring the Accomplishment 
      then go back to the console's dashboard and restart just like you did 
      for the {Fully Customised} Accomplishments and simply do this mission 
      again.

One final thing - depending on what version of the game you have the Groom
can either be just the "Groom" or "Buddy Muldoon". For this walkthrough I
will just use the "Groom" name.

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

When you start the mission then you will be right next to your Exit Point and
looking out towards a platform with several Guests shooting at Alligators.
Proceed forward and follow the walkway until you can head north onto the
Mansion grounds.

When you get onto the grass then look to your left to find a drunken Guest
staggering around. He is heading to the burned out building you passed on
your way to the grounds. Turn left to find a bridge going into the burned out
building. Go south into the building and wait at the northeast corner.
Eventually the drunken Guest will stagger his way inside.

Then he will sit down and pass out. Go up to him and change into the Guest
Outfit, pick up the Six Shooter (for your weapons collection), and the very
important Party Invitation. You won't be allowed in without it regardless of
Outfit.

After this then speed walk north past the dance floor and through the main
entrance of the Mansion. You should see the main stairs leading up. To the
right of the stairs you may find the Bride standing there. Head north along
the right side of the stairs and turn right at the corner. Ahead of you you
should see a door marked Private. This is the Kitchen.

Now comes the trickiest part of this mission. The timing can be random
between certain Guests, the Priest, the Waiter (that goes into the Kitchen
and the Reception Area), the secondary Waiter (who goes between the Boat
House and the Kitchen), and the Groom.

You need to go through the Kitchen and to the room to the south without being
seen. Usually, you will encounter the Groom just as he leaves the Kitchen or
just before he leaves. The Priest has just gone ahead of you through the
Kitchen and to the south room. Both Waiters are well outside of the Kitchen.

When the Groom passes you by then look behind you to make sure that the coast
is clear. You also need to look out for Guests heading to and from the
Restroom at the west side of the floor.

When everything is good then go through the Kitchen and through the next door
on your right. Just as you step through the door then immediately stop. Look
to the east to find another door. If your timing is good then you may find it
open. This is because there is a Gangmember that opens this door from time to
time.

By standing in the doorway then you can't be seen by him. After the door
closes then turn west and follow the corner. You should see two doors - one
to the west (which is another Private door) and one to the south. Open the
south door and Sneak inside.

If everything has gone well then you should see the Priest standing inside
this room enjoying a quick drink. If not then go into the Walk-In Closet at
the north side of the room, close the doors, and look through the Keyhole.
When he is in the room then Sneak up behind and Whip him. Change into the
Priest Outfit and leave the body.

It should be noted that, if he is not in the room and you hide in the closet
and you have waited a long time, then it is because the Priest has become
stuck inside the Reception Room and won't come to you. Restart if this
happens - thankfully this problem is very rare (only happened once on the PS2
version).

The Priest Outfit will give you more access around the Mansion but not
everywhere. In addition, by knocking out the Priest, then you have also
prevented the wedding ceremony from taking place. Of course, if you want, you
can perform the ceremony yourself for some additional fun.

From here, head to the bottom of the spiral staircase just south of the
Kitchen door. Go up the spiral staircase then head up all the way to the
Attic. As noted there are three Winches that you can sabotage - two to the
north and one to the south.

The one you want to mine is the one at the *NORTHWEST*. After planting the
Mine then head to the spiral staircase at the west side of the floor and head
down to the 2nd Floor. When you get to the 2nd Floor then head west towards a
door that leads outside. As you get to it then you should see a door to your
left.

Pick the Lock of this door and you should enter an L-shaped room. Go forward
to the next door and stop. Check your Map to look for your Targets.

The Groom will go outside to the front of the Mansion and shoot some bullets
in the air, go back inside and to the Kitchen to sample the Wedding Cake,
then into the Reception Room to play the Piano before heading back outside.

Pappy will start from his room, go downstairs to the Greenhouse, then go
outside to the Family Graves before heading back inside and to his room. If
you are wearing the Priest Outfit at this point then Pappy should be walking
past the Guards Quarters towards the Family Graves. Walk into Pappy's room to
find a Walk-In Closet and a regular Closet.

Go inside the Walk-In Closet, pull out your Detonator, and look at your Map
for the Groom. When he stops at the Piano (at the northwest side of the
Reception Room) then Detonate the Mine and the Chandelier will come crashing
down on him, killing him and creating an Accident.

At this point everybody will go nuts trying to find out what happened (and
your Threat Meter will go yellow). After about a minute then bring out your
Fiber Wire and go into the regular Closet. You cannot ambush Pappy from the
Walk-In Closet - he will see you.

Eventually, as Pappy does his thing and slowly heads back to the Mansion,
then things will calm down (in essence he becomes a timer to let you know
when things are good again). By the time Pappy sits back down in his chair
then things will completely calm down and your Threat Meter should be back
down to nothing.

If, by chance your Threat Meter is still yellow when Pappy returns to his
room, this is more than likely because a Guest has become stuck somewhere on
the Map. This will *NOT* negatively affect your score so don't sweat it. On
the Original Xbox version the Threat Meter will stay yellow until you leave
the Mansion.

When Pappy returns to his chair then get out of the Closet, Sneak up behind,
and Wire him. After killing Pappy then grab the Elephant Rifle on the nearby
wall and bring out the Detonator to initiate the Detonator Trick. From here,
head back up to the Attic the same you way came then go back down the east
stairs and to the 1st Floor. Then head back through the Kitchen and out the
main doors.

Next, head to the ICA Crate by going around the tent and jumping over the
short fence. Store the Elephant Rifle then go through the tent and back to
your Suit. After you change into your Suit then head to your primary Exit
Point to successfully complete the mission.

The date: June 9, 2005.

47 now finds himself in Las Vegas. For this mission he is take down a trio of
Targets.

The first is Sheikh Al-Khalifa who is buying DNA specimens from another
Target, a South Afrikaner named Hendrik Schmutz. The third Target is a
Scientist, Tariq Abdul Lateef, who will verify the merchandise before payment
is rendered.

The deal is going down at one of the Sheik's Casinos, the Shamal. It is under
heavy security so it will take some doing for 47 to accomplish his goals.

The Outside Map is where you start and has one Point of Interest which is the
Balcony that has the Trellis that you can use to climb up to the 8th Floor.

The Lobby has a Guard Quarters and one Point of Interest which is the
Surveillance Machine where you can get the CCTV Tape (if you need to do so).
The Casino floor has one Point of Interest which is additional Staff Only
doors. There is a Guard Quarters to the southeast and the main Lounge is to
the northeast.

The Casino itself is in the center and you will be recorded on CCTV if you go
there.

The 7th Floor has one Point of Interest which is a drunken woman who will let
you into her room. Your ICA Crate is in Room 701. There is also a Guards
Quarters near the center. The 8th Floor has no Points of Interests but does
have a Guards Quarters near the center. The room for the Scientist is to the
northwest.

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

An interesting mission to say the least. There are many different ways to go
after your Targets.

The easiest way to kill Hendrik Schmutz is to wait for him to get to the
Elevator and Strangle him from above. However, it will be awhile from the
start of the mission before he gets to it. But I found a way to make use of
that time and acquire some valuable items to be used in the later parts of
the mission before killing him.

I also went for a more hands-on approach to killing the Scientist instead of
sniping or blowing him up. Same for the Sheik.

If you're playing on Professional Difficulty and you've spent very little or
nothing on upgrading then this is the earliest you can get the {High Roller}
Accomplishment on the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions.

For those playing the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions here is the next part of
obtaining one of the Accomplishments:

  >>{Notorious} Accomplishment (Part 2)
    ***********************************
      If you did everything correctly in the previous mission then you will 
      obtain this Accomplishment here. To complete acquisition of this 
      Accomplishment you should have the following:

        ++Silverballer
            --Extra Ammo
            --Magnum Ammo
            --Large Clip
        ++Pain Killers
        ++Adrenaline
        ++Flexible Flak Vest

      When the mission starts then go through the entrance and turn right. 
      Then turn left and head to the guarded Staff Only door. Bring out your 
      Silverballer and kill the Guard to get things started. Quickly Pick the 
      Lock and go through the door then go through the door after that.

      You'll enter into a long hallway that is part of an L-shaped room. Go 
      to the end and hang around the corner. This will be perfect for killing 
      all of the approaching Guards. Both yourself and the Guards fire right 
      handed.

      But, because of where you are standing, you can shoot them before they 
      can shoot you. This makes it easier to keep your health under control.

      Go into 1st Person Mode and position yourself where you can see the 
      wall where the door is but it should be between the corner and the 
      Closet. This will give you a good angle to kill the Guards as they 
      approach. Keep the gun aimed high for headshots.

      When the Guards stop coming then go and grab all of the SLP .40 Pistols 
      to keep them from being picked up by others. In addition, the chaos you 
      are creating will keep the Scientist and the Sheik in the Lobby making 
      them easier to kill.

      Sometimes, though, the Scientist may actually make it to the 8th Floor. 
      In this case, grab the Keycard from Henrik when you kill him so you can 
      get to the 7th Floor then use the Trellis to climb to the 8th Floor so 
      you can get at the Scientist.

      From the Staff Only room, head out and attract the attention of 
      Bodyguards and other Guards that didn't already try to go after you. Go 
      back to the Staff Only room, hang around the corner again, and pick 
      them off as they approach.

      Once all of the Guards are gone then go after your Targets. Then go 
      into the Bar and kill the two Guards there. Do *NOT* kill any Civilians 
      - you want to have Witnesses. After the last Guard is dead then run all 
      around the Casino and Lobby area with your weapon out. Make sure that 
      when you go into the Casino that you are seen by the CCTV Cameras.

      Then complete the mission and you will successfully acquire this 
      Accomplishment. Then go back to the console's dashboard and do the 
      previous mission again.

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

When you start the mission then you will be outside the Hotel. Run forward
and through the main entrance. When you get inside the Lobby then run to the
Reception Desk at the east side of the floor. Talk to the person behind the
counter to get your room key (Keycard Room 701). You need the room key to
access the 7th Floor or you will not be allowed to use the Elevators.

You will need to get up to the 8th Floor as well but your Keycard will not
allow you access to that level. If you do not have an appropriate Keycard for
that floor and you manage to take the Elevator up to that floor then the
Guards posted by it will demand you leave.

You will need to Sneak up there from the 7th Floor and acquire a Keycard for
the 8th Floor to allow for easy access. This is what I am going to do while I
am waiting for Hendrik Schmutz to get to the Elevator so I can ambush him.

After acquiring your Keycard then run north up the nearby stairs to an
Elevator. There are two Elevators - one to the west and one to the east. The
one you are running up to is the East Elevator and the one I will be using
exclusively for this mission (this is also the Elevator that Hendrik will be
using).

Get inside the East Elevator and take it up to the 7th Floor. When you get to
the 7th Floor then exit the Elevator, turn left, then run left again at the
corner. You should see a Civilian walk east along the main hallway at the
east side of the floor.

Run north and turn left at the next corner. You should see a Guard ahead of
you turning the next corner. You'll see two large doors to your right but
we'll get back to them later. Run past the Guard and head to Room 701 (your
room). By the couch is your Weapons Crate. Take the TMP and run back to the
north hallway and the two large doors.

These doors lead out onto the Balcony that has the Trellis that you can use
to climb up to the 8th Floor. However, there is a member of the Casino Staff
having a leisurely smoke at the west side of the Balcony. Go up to the west
door and open it then sidestep left as it opens. This is to make sure that he
doesn't turn around on you.

When the coast is clear then Sneak up behind him and Grab him. Then go back
into the hallway and head west then turn south at the corner. Continue south
and you will find a Staff Only door to your left. Go through the door and you
will find a Container.

Whip the Casino Staff person, grab the 7th Floor Keycard (the master key for
this floor), then dump him into the Container. Then drop your TMP, Prep your
Sedative, leave the Staff Only room, and head back to the Balcony. The reason
for dropping the TMP is that need to be unarmed before you can visit Sheikh
Al-Khalifa later. You'll still need a firearm for later but we'll get that
from Henrik.

Go through the still open door then climb the Trellis between the two doors.
Normally there would be a Civilian standing by one of the windows but,
because of your timing, he won't be here. When you get to the top then go
east along the ledge and into the open window. There is a Guard that patrols
this floor but, because of how things are timed, he will not be near this
window.

When you get through the window then head west and turn left at the corner.
Ahead of you, to the left, is another Staff Only door. In the small room is
another Casino Staff member. He has an unusual pattern in that he will be
seated in a chair at the north end of the room then get up, travel south
about ten feet, and return to his chair. Looking through the Keyhole will do
no good in trying to determine when he is up and about.

Instead, open the door, Nudge forward about a step to keep the door from
closing, and look north. You should see him at the south end of his route but
the door will keep him from seeing you. When you see him head north back to
his chair then Sneak in. Go up to him, Sedate him, grab the 8th Floor Keycard
(the master key for this floor), and dump him into the nearby Container.

While you are doing this then the Scientist will have arrived on this floor.
Before leaving the Staff only room have a quick look at your Map. Wait for
him to get just past the door of Room 801 before leaving.

As you leave the Staff Only room then you should see his back as he heads
down the hallway to his room (Room 803). Stay distant from him and head to
Room 801. There is something I need to do here to make things easier later on
in the mission.

Use the Master Keycard to open the door. There is a Civilian in this room
that you need to knock out which will make it easier for you to leave after
killing the Scientist later in the mission.

If the timing is right then he should be in the Bathroom and you won't be
seen as you enter the room. Go to the coffee table within the Living Room to
find a Bottle. Quickly Sedate it and leave.

After leaving the room then go back to the East Elevator. Because the Guards
did not see you enter through the window and that you have the 8th Floor
Keycard then they will not cause any problems for you. Enter the Elevator and
take it down. Climb the Hatch, bring out your Fiber Wire, stand at the edge
of the Hatch, and wait.

By doing all of the above work before Hendrik arrives at the East Elevator
then you will have gained the Master Keycards for both the 7th and 8th Floors
thus allowing you full access to both levels and all of the rooms within.

After about a minute or so then Hendrik will finally enter the East Elevator.
When he enters and the Elevator goes up then Strangle Hendrik which will put
him on the top of the Elevator and safely out of view. There is no need to
change into his clothes. After killing Hendrik then drop down into the
Elevator as it continues up.

Exit the Elevator when it stops and head to Hendrik's room - Room 707. Use
the Keycard and enter the room to find the DNA Briefcase. Grab the DNA
Briefcase and go back to the East Elevator. Go back down to the Lobby then to
the Casino floor.

When you get down to the floor then angle northeast towards the doors that
lead to the hallway for the Restrooms. Go north through this hallway to enter
the Lounge area. Head to the north end to find a couple of the Sheik's
Bodyguards who will search you.

After the search then angle northwest to find the Sheik himself. After a
couple of short cutscenes then you will have to wait as a Courier from the
Scientist's room comes down to retrieve the DNA Briefcase and takes it back
up.

Then wait some more as he comes back down with the Payment Briefcase. All the
while you will have to listen to the Sheik tell you how "this is a large
Casino". Irritating. Of course, during this time, you can go to the restroom
or get a snack/drink. That's what I do. At least it's better than listen to
his yammering about his Casino.

After a few minutes then the Scientist will call the Sheik but the reception
is poor because of the anti-cheating measures. He will then head to the roof
so he can complete the conversation. Follow him up. As you head up the stairs
then you will see your Threat Meter go yellow but you are a friend of the
Sheik so you're cool. Eventually your Threat Meter will go down as you
continue up.

You will finally get to the roof and the Sheik will complete the call. As he
heads back inside then keep close to him. When you reach the top of the
stairs then push him down. He may or may not die in the fall. If he does,
fine. If not, then Poison him.

From here, head back into the Lounge, grab the Payment Briefcase, and go to
the Exit Point at the west side of the Casino floor. After going through the
second set of doors then drop the Briefcase. It will be safe here.

After this then go back to the East Elevator and up to the 8th Floor. Climb
back up through the Hatch to obtain the SLP .40 .S Pistol from Henrik. When
you get to the 8th Floor then head to the Fire Alarm west of Room 801.

The Scientist never leaves his room - that is, unless forced to. When you get
to the Fire Alarm then pull it, run north, and turn left at the corner.
Continue forward and stop at the next Fire Alarm.

You should see the Scientist and most of his Bodyguards pass you by. But
don't do anything yet. One of the Bodyguards is a straggler so wait for him
to pass you and go around the corner you just came from before making your
move. After he gets out of view then run into the Scientist's room.

Go into the Bathroom through the south door, close it, and stand by it. Bring
out your Pistol, switch to your Map, and wait. Eventually the Fire Alarm will
stop and everybody will return to their rooms. Then the Scientist, and a
Bodyguard, will return to the Living Room.

After a few seconds then the Scientist will go north into the Bedroom. When
he does then get out of the Map, open the door, Sneak into the Living Room,
then turn left. You should find the Bodyguard just standing there. Sneak up
to him and, by the time you get to him, then the door to the Bedroom will
have closed.

Grab the Bodyguard, quickly move him into the Bathroom, then Whip him. As you
are Whipping the Bodyguard then the Scientist will go back into the Living
Room. Open the door and, while using it as a shield, look east. When the
Scientist stops then bring out your Poison, Sneak up behind him, and kill
him.

Although you can get him in the Bedroom it is better to kill him in the
Living Room.

If you try to kill him in the Bedroom then there is a slight chance that one
of the patrolling Guards on either the 7th or 8th Floor may see you out of a
window at the north side of their patrol route and they will come up to
attack you. I found this out the hard way during a Professional difficulty
run.

But nobody can see you in the Living Room so it is safer to kill the
Scientist here. With the Scientist dead then it is just a matter of getting
back out of the heavily guarded room. Near the Bedroom door is another door
that leads out onto the balcony for this room. Go out onto the balcony and go
south to the privacy divider.

Then jump to the balcony to the east which is the one for Room 801. After
jumping onto the balcony then go through the room, and passing the Sedated
Civilian, back into the hallway. Then go back to the East Elevator and take
it down then head back down to the Casino floor. Then go to the Exit Point,
pick up the Payment Briefcase, and run to the Limo to to successfully
complete the mission.

The date: August 15, 2005.

The Agency is finished. Somebody has been killing off the other agents and
all that remains is Diana and 47.

But there is one more mission to accomplish before the end. 47's last mission
takes him to another part of Las Vegas. He is to infiltrate an illegal rave
and take down a dirty CIA Agent. That Agent is Anthony Martinez. He is also
meeting with a known arms dealer, who is also a bit of a showgirl, named
Vaana Ketlyn.

They are to close out a deal during this party. They are also romantically
linked. But that is not the only thing to deal with. There are going to be
other assassins there as well. However, those assassins are not after Anthony
or Vanna. They are after 47.

Presumably they are part of a rival group known as The Franchise. In addition
to taking down his assigned Targets, 47 is to find out who these assassins
are and take them down as well.

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

There are four levels to the map:

  >>Basement
  >>Ground Floor and Garage
  >>Atrium Terrace
  >>Top Floor

The Ground Floor and Garage is where you start and has your Exit Point which
is located on the north side of the Garage. This level has two Points of
Interests.

The first one, to the northeast, is where you can find the Heaven Guest
Outfit that will allow you access to the Heaven Party on the Top Floor. The
second one, near the center, is the Guard Shack where you can find the
Surveillance Machine that has the CCTV Tape.

This level also has a Guards Quarters and your ICA Crate. There is a small
Elevator Room situated at the south side of the Garage. The Basement is where
the Hell Party is located. The main dance floor is in the center.

The lone Point of Interest is the Food Elevator that is connected to the Top
Floor and where items can be dropped in from above. The Torture Chamber is at
the southwest corner of this floor.

The Top Floor is where the Heaven Party is located. There are two Points of
Interests on this floor.

The first one, to the north, is the Food Elevator where you can drop things
into the Basement. The second PoI, to the south, is where you can find the
Laptop that contains the Information on the assassins laying in wait for you.

The Top Floor also has a Guards Quarters where you can find some weapons. The
Atrium Terrace has nothing of particular interest but can be used as a
possible sniping point.

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

This is an interesting level in that you have to go through two different
theme parties to get at your Targets. The easiest place to get at Anthony
Martinez is at the Heaven Party. One aspect to him is that he will eventually
go down to the Hell Party to meet with Vaana.

However, he will *NEVER* go down unless you get up to the Heaven Party in the
Heaven Party Outfit. This seems to set off some kind of timer in regards to
him going down to the Hell Party. You can use this to your advantage.

Most people like to ambush him in the restroom at the north side of the Top
Floor. However, I find that to be a bit risky since it is possible that he
may head to the Elevator while you are waiting in position for him. This is
in addition to the fact that a couple of people go in and out of this room.

I prefer to just take the time and wait for him to come to the Elevator so I
can Strangle him through the Hatch. That way I don't risk any Bad Things
happening and I can preserve a Silent Assassin run, especially at
Professional difficulty.

In addition, you can confront both Eve and Maynard John before acquiring the
Information which will make them Targets on the Map. Interestingly enough,
Eve and Maynard John will appear on the Map as Civilians even at Professional
difficulty.

What I will do is go up to the Heaven Party to start the timer for Anthony
then go down to the Hell Party to kill Maynard John which will speed things
up because I am making efficient use of the time I would have spent waiting
for Anthony to use the Elevator.

I also found a way to easily get rid of Maynard without the need for
firearms. Unfortunately, I was unable to find a way to get quietly deal with
him without entering the Torture Chamber.

Finally, I also managed to safely get rid of all of the Office Guards that
patrol the Garage so I can move about freely down there.

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

For this particular strategy a Pistol is required at the start. Do *NOT*
bring an SLP .40 Pistol - any other Pistol is fine. The Flak Jacket may also
be recommended if you haven't already bought it.

When you start the mission then you will be outside the large building. Prep
your Pistol and head north through the front doors. You will automatically be
seen by the CCTV Cameras as you enter. Continue forward to the main desk and
Talk to Receptionist.

Then follow him through the Staff Only door into the Guards Quarters.
Eventually he will lead you to a small room north of here. When he stops then
Whip him and change into the Office Guard Outfit. Go back into the Guards
Quarters and to the Weapons Box at the northeast corner of the room. Pick up
both of the SLP .40 Pistols to empty the Box then stand behind the nearby
chair and Prep your Sedative.

After a short time then you will see an Office Guard come in and sit in this
chair. Sedate him then drag him to the small room where you left the first
Guard. Prep your SLP .40 Pistol and leave the Guards Quarters. Turn left and
head east until you get to another door which leads into the Fire Exit.

Go down the stairs and through the double doors. Here you will be in the
Garage. Ahead of you to the east you should see in the far background a large
limo. You will also see four Guards by the two Elevators that go to the two
major parties.

From this door, turn left and head north past the two vehicles. You should
then see a railing and, at the west end, a set of stairs going down to the
lower Garage level. Go down the stairs and turn right. You should see another
limo at the far background and the back end of the van which is your Exit
Point.

Just ahead of you, though, is a short incline. There is also an Office Guard
that patrols this area but he isn't seen at this point. Go up this small
incline and you should see a car to your left. Bring out your SLP .40 Pistol
and drop it by this car. Then run back up to the Guards Quarters and to the
Weapons Box.

Prep your other Pistol and wait (do *NOT* use the Sedative). It will take
awhile but the Office Guard on the lower Garage level will find the dropped
Pistol and take it to the Weapons Box.

When he bends down to put the weapon in the Box then Whip him. Leave the
Guards Quarters and walk through the front doors. Do *NOT* run through the
front doors - the Guards in the Guard Shack will see you with the CCTV Camera
and they will come out to attack you if you run.

Turn left and walk towards the Guard Shack. If everything has gone right up
to this point then you should see one of the two Office Guards in the Shack
outside of it taking a smoke. If, by some chance he is not, then stand some
distance away and wait for him to exit the Shack.

When he is in position then walk until you are about fifteen feet away from
him then Sneak up and Whip him. Then Prep your Sedative, go inside the Guard
Shack, and Steal Video Tape from the Surveillance Machine.

From here, head north and turn right at the corner. Head towards the Elevator
Guards and you should see a car to your right as you walk past the wall. You
will also see an Office Guard standing near it. Turn the next corner then
stop in the next.

The Office Guard may turn around but that is okay since he will turn back
around again. Sneak behind the car and go up to him then Sedate him. Do *NOT*
try to Whip him. He may make enough noise to alert the Elevator Guards and
you will be attacked. This is why you need to save the last of your Sedative
for him.

After Sedating the Office Guard then Pick the Lock of the nearby door which
opens into the Elevator Room. Drag the Office Guard into the Elevator Room
which will hide him.

And, by Sedating this Guard, then you will have cleared out the entire Garage
of all of the patrolling Guards which will make going through this area a lot
easier.

Now it is time to go up to the Heaven Party but you will need a disguise.
Head northeast while keeping distant from the Elevator Guards and to the east
side of the lower Garage level. Here you will find the Spring Valley prop
rental van.

Behind it, on the ground, is the Heaven Guest Outfit. However, I am not going
to change into it yet. There is something else I will do first. To the
northwest of the Heaven Outfit is another limo and three trailers. To the
west of the trailers is a pillar.

Behind the pillar is a Hell Guest who is throwing up something fierce. I will
need his Outfit to access the Hell Party. Go to the Heaven Outfit then head
straight north and turn left at the corner. Go west behind the trailers then
enter Sneak Mode when you get to the last one.

Turn left past the last one to find the sick guest. Sneak up behind him and
bring out your Pistol. Because of the way he is bent down it will take a few
seconds to get the prompt to Grab him. When you are able to Grab him then
Whip him. Change into the Hell Guest Outfit then head back to the Elevator
Room.

Go to the Sedated Office Guard and change into his Outfit which will place
the Hell Guest Outfit in the Elevator Room. Then head back out to the Heaven
Outfit and change into it.

Although you can drop your weapons and get frisked by the Elevator Guards I
prefer to avoid them and keep my hardware. Go back to the Elevator Room and
climb the ladder. The first Elevator you come to is the one that leads up to
the Heaven Party. Carefully drop down through the Hatch and take the Elevator
up.

When you get to the Top Floor then proceed forward into the main stage area.
At this point you may see a scantily dressed woman on stage singing a song.
Or, at least, trying to.

That woman is Eve, one of your Targets but you haven't got her to appear as
one on the Map yet. For now just stay in this area for about thirty seconds
then return to the Elevator and head back down to the Garage floor.

While all of this is going on then Anthony Martinez will enter the main stage
area, head backstage, go to the restroom, go to the window on the east side
of the floor, then back to the main stage area. After about four to five
minutes of waiting then he will finally head to the Elevator. I will be using
this time to go after Maynard John at the Hell Party.

When you get back down to the Garage floor then leave the Elevator through
the doors and go back into the Elevator Room. Change into the Hell Guest
Outfit then climb the ladder and go to the far Elevator which is the one that
leads down to the Hell Party.

When you get down to the Hell Party then find Maynard John. You can't miss
him - red outfit, red face, white hair. He is usually near the Bar or at the
stairs leading down to the dance floor. When you confront Maynard you find
that this cocky little bastard wants to take on 47 in a duel.

This duel is to be held in a room known as the Torture Chamber. Follow him
and he will take you there. After you get inside the Torture Chamber then you
will get another cutscene. After that then you will find yourself by a table
with an MP7 and a Desert Eagle.

The room has a fence around the center and you are outside of it. The outside
of this room is also segmented. In addition, this room is also soundproofed
(although you can hear someone making out just outside the door).

If you go south and turn the corner then you will find a gate that won't open
until Maynard moves to the next section of the room. You will find shelves
with vases on them but they only provide temporary cover since they can be
broken up by gunfire.

Although the game wants you to use guns for this duel you can easily use the
Poison and not even get hit by gunfire in the process since you are not
opening yourself up to return fire.

As you begin, there is also a large concrete pillar next to the table where
you start. Stand behind the pillar. On the opposite side of this room is
another large pillar. Maynard is going to be behind this pillar.

In some dumbass fashion he will try to shoot at you but will shoot into this
pillar instead. While he is firing then bring out your Poison. After he
empties about three clips then the lighting will change and he will move to
another part of the room. When he starts moving then run south and turn the
corner.

Go through the now open gate and head to the pillar that Maynard was firing
into earlier. Find the bullet holes and stand *EXACTLY* by them. The reason
is that he will be firing at an angle from the next room and, by standing
next to these bullet holes, then he cannot hit you.

When the lighting changes again then turn left to look at the gate. When the
gate opens up then run through it, turn right, turn right at the next corner,
then stop inside the wall corner and look south. You should see the last gate
leading into the center of the room which is closed. The wall will protect
you from Maynard's gunfire.

Wait until the gate opens and for Maynard to be seen at the desk ahead of
you. When he pauses to reload then run at him. When you get to him then he
will run to the other desk in this area. Keep close to him as he runs from
desk to desk and he will not be able to fire on you. As he continues to run
then keep close to his backside and you will be able to easily Poison him.

Duh, ownage! Heh.

Grab the Storage Key from Maynard's dead body and his MP5 (if you still need
one). You can also go back to the table and grab the Desert Eagle and MP7 as
well. Unlock the door and go back to the Elevator. Take it up to the Garage
level and climb the Hatch. Bring out your Fiber Wire and wait.

After about a minute then Anthony will call the Elevator up to the Heaven
Party. Then he will come down and enter the Elevator below you.

Sometimes, however, if you look at your Map, you may find Eve and Anthony
stuck. If this happens then get back into the Heaven Guest Outfit and go back
up just long enough to get them unstuck then go back down and wait at the top
of the Elevator for the Hell Party.

When Anthony enters the Elevator and it starts to go down then Strangle him
through the Hatch. After that then change into the CIA Agent Outfit which
will allow you to access almost everyplace without suspicion. When the
Elevator doors close then gently climb down - leave the Rifle Suitcase for
now. Exit the Elevator and be on the lookout for Vaana.

Vaana will start on the dance floor then head towards the T-shaped stage,
which is above a large shark tank, at the east side of this floor. Then,
after performing, which involves pyrotechnics, she will go back to the dance
floor. There are two methods to getting rid of her:

  >>The "Never Let Her See Your Face" Method
    ****************************************
      Get up to her before or after her performance and she will motion you 
      to follow her. She will lead you into the Throne Room which is east of 
      the Bar. Go inside and she will tell you to take off your mask. 
      Instead, Punch her out then Poison her unconscious body. Move her body 
      to the Throne, just to be safe, before leaving.

  >>The "Ooops! Did I Do That?" Method
    **********************************
      Go backstage to find the double doors leading to the T-shaped stage. To 
      the left of the doors is a Pyrotechnics Machine. You can rig the 
      Pyrotechnics to kill Vaana in an Accident at the end of her 
      performance. Although there is a Hell Guard nearby he doesn't seem to 
      care about you messing around with equipment.

However, just to be safe, make sure he isn't standing right at the machine
before tinkering with it.

After dealing with Vaana then head back to the Elevator and pick up the Rifle
Suitcase. Then take the Elevator back up to the Garage. The Rifle Suitcase
contains the FN-2000 assault rifle. If you did not acquire this weapon from
the mission "Death on the Mississippi" then it is very easy to get here.

Open the Elevator doors and go west then back out to the front of the office
building. Head to your ICA Crate at the west side of the entrance. Select the
Rifle Suitcase to bring out the FN-2000 then store it in the ICA Crate. After
that then head back to the Elevator for the Heaven Party. Take it back up and
turn right.

You should see the doors for the Restricted Area ahead of you. Go through
them and you should see the next set of doors which should be to your right
near the end of the hall. They will open into a large office that is used by
Eve. Depending on your timing she may be finished with a performance and
heading back to the office.

Quickly enter the office and do a 180-degree turn left around the door. Stand
at the wall between the door and the picture and look southwest. Bring out
either your Fiber Wire or Poison (if you have any left) and wait.

When she returns to the office then she will stand by the door and with her
back to you. Close the door, Sneak up to her, and Wire/Poison her. Then drag
her to the nearby window so she isn't seen when you open the door to leave.
After killing her then head to the curved desk at the south end of the
office. On one end is the Laptop with the Information you require.

Go to the Laptop and acquire the Information which will show Eve and Maynard
John on the Map as Targets (even though they are already dead). On the other
end of the desk is another Rifle Suitcase - this one has a Dragunov Sniper
Rifle.

After acquiring the Information then grab the Rifle Suitcase (if you still
need the Dragunov), exit the office, and head back to the Elevator. Go back
down to the Garage, head to the ICA Crate to store the Dragunov (if you
grabbed it), then get your Suit.

Then go back through the Fire Exit and to the stairs down to the lower Garage
level. From here, head to your Exit Point to successfully complete the
mission.

As 47 drives off to parts unknown he is surprised by a stowaway, Agent Smith,
who happily greets him. Unfortunately, 47 doesn't take too kindly to
unwelcome passengers and manages to stop the van while smacking around Smith.

As 47 puts a gun to Smith's head he gives the Agent an opportunity to explain
himself. Smith needs 47's help in a matter of major importance. The President
is being targeted for assassination by the group that wants to make cloning
illegal and keep it to themselves. Smith does not want that to happen and
feels that 47 is the best person for the job.

However, 47 isn't going to do this for free. But Smith informs 47 about the
diamonds in the back and more that can he given to him. This convinces 47 to
do the job for Agent Smith and that leads into the next mission....

The date: September 22, 2005.

The President is in line to be assassinated by his own Vice President. The
same group that put him into the Vice Presidency wants to put him in the Oval
Office. Agent Smith does not want this to happen and that is why he has
brought in Agent 47. The President is currently in Los Angeles and will be
killed when he returns unless 47 stops them.

However, the assassins, and Vice President, are already inside the heavily
guarded White House.....

Keycard and the Surveillance Machine that has the CCTV Tape. The second one,
in the Museum, is a laser system that can be triggered to create a
distraction.

The Main Building, 1st Floor has a Guards Quarters and is where the Vice
President's office is. The Main Building, 2nd Floor has two Points of
Interest. The first one, to the west, is where you can find a Carpenter
Outfit. The second one, to the east is where you can find a Toolbox.

The Main Building, Basement connects the East and West Wings with the Main
Building.

The West Wing, 1st Floor has one Point of Interest which is a Weapons Crate.
The Oval Office, where Parchezzi can be found, is at the southeast corner of
the Map. The West Wing, 2nd Floor has a Guards Quarters and a Point of

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

This one was easy for awhile before I got to Professional difficulty. Then it
became frustrating.

Even though I was doing well I kept getting Professional ratings instead of
Silent Assassin. I was using the "Enemy Mined" strategy to kill both the Vice
President and Parchezzi but that doesn't work on Professional because you
will hurt your rating if any bodies are found outside of an Accident.

Of course, both bodies are always found after blowing them up.

Even though you can hide the VP's body you cannot do the same for Parchezzi
so it became important to find a way to kill him without attracting the
attention of Marines and Secret Service that could end up finding him.
Although there are a lot of CCTV Cameras inside the Main Building you can get
the CCTV Tape early on in the mission before they can record you.

One irritating thing about this mission - when you kill Parchezzi there is a
bug in the engine that will cause the PIP Cam to turn itself back on if you
turned it off. I always keep it off because I find it distracting - and why
this bug is irritating to me. On the PS2 version it may turn back on from the
beginning of the mission.

Finally, by successfully completing this mission in the Xbox 360 version then
you will also acquire the {Rookie/Normal/Expert/Professional Mode Complete}
Accomplishments.

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

For this particular strategy a Pistol is required at the start. An SLP .40 .S
or Silenced Silverballer is *STRONGLY* recommended. Because of the metal
detectors you will need to find a way to get it inside.

When you start the mission then you will be outside of the East Wing by a
large tour bus. Go north to the end of the area and turn left to find your
ICA Crate just around the corner of the building. Place your Pistol into the
Crate then head back around and go through the metal detectors to enter the
Museum.

Go straight ahead to find a Marine guarding a double door just past the
velvet rope. Go past the velvet rope and turn left towards a door while
keeping away from the Marine (get too close and he'll warn you).

Go through the door to enter a Restroom. Stand by the toilet and wait. One of
the Museum Staff will come inside to take a piss. When the door closes then
Sedate him. Then drag his body into the northwest corner of this Restroom.
Twirl his body in either direction until he is up against the west wall as
much as possible.

After that then change into the Museum Staff Outfit. Then walk out of the
door while executing the command to close it (this will get the door to close
quickly behind you as you exit to lessen the chance of the body being seen).

Now go through the double doors to enter a short hallway. Go through the door
to the left to enter the Guards Quarters. Head to the south side of this room
to find a desk. On the desk is a Surveillance Machine with the CCTV Tape and
a Main Building Keycard. Take the Keycard and Steal Video Tape.

Now, you're probably wondering why not just take an SLP. 40 Pistol from the
nearby Weapons Box. This is because, if you do that, even if you are wearing
a Marine Outfit, you will be attacked by the Marine sitting at the desk.
Stupid, I know.

After this then exit the Guards Quarters and angle northwest to enter a
single door that goes into a Locker Room. Head north and go through the door
on your left to enter the Kitchen. Proceed through the Kitchen and you will
find a Kitchen Knife on the counter (you probably won't need it but it should
be pointed out in case you want to play with it). Go through the door at the
end to get back outside.

Stand at the east side of the door and look north. A Marine patrols this
area. He will slowly patrol outside, then go through a door east of you,
quickly go through the Locker Room and Kitchen, and heads back outside.

When he comes back outside then wait for the door to close and Sneak up
behind then Sedate him. Change into the Marine Outfit and grab the M14. Go
through the door to the east to go back inside. Head south to go through the
next door to get back into the Museum.

Go back outside then to the ICA Crate. Store the M14 and this should complete
your weapon collection (if you have acquired all of the other weapons
beforehand). Retrieve your Pistol then go back inside and through the double
doors guarded by the Marine. Continue west and go through the next double
doors to enter a large breakroom.

Go through the next double doors to enter a long hallway with a glass wall to
your left. At the end is another double door but it is keycarded. The Main
Building Keycard will open this door. After going through this door then you
will be inside the Basement of the Main Building. Speed walk through here and
go through the next door that leads into the 1st Floor of the Main Building.

You will be inside a large stairwell at the east side of the Main Building (I
will call this the East Stairwell). However, you will see a double door to
your right. Go through it and you will enter into a large central room with a
Piano and Fireplace. Angle southwest until you reach the red carpeted area
and then angle west until you go through another double door.

You will then enter another large stairwell which I will call the West
Stairwell. Climb the stairs to the top and you will see another double door.
However, you will see a single door to your right. Go through it to enter a
room with covered furniture.

Go south toward an open window but don't get too close to it yet since you
will be encountering a patrolling Marine within this room. You will also find
a Carpenter Outfit on the nearby desk but it is of no use in this write-up.

When the Marine leaves then go through the window to stand on top of a
scaffold. Climb the ladder down to reach the Roof of the West Wing. When you
get down then you will find a couple of large vent units and additional
scaffolding pieces. Note this location as it is where you will be facing
Parchezzi later on.

This is also the east end of the roof which is long and rectangular and has
additional large and small vent units.

Prep your Pistol and run west. As you run past the trio of large vent units
then angle southwest. You should see a large domed roof (for the Oval
Office), a keycarded door, and a bright lighted window near the door. Head to
this window and stop. The door leads inside the West Wing. Unfortunately, you
cannot enter as a Marine or a Carpenter.

Fortunately, a Secret Service Agent will come out in a couple of minutes to
take a smoke at the wall just south of your position. Wait for the door to
close then Sneak up and Whip him. Then drag him around the dome all the way
to the other side. Then change into the Secret Service Outfit and grab the
West Wing Keycard. Now you can safely go everywhere.

Although you could go back up the scaffold to re-enter the Main Building you
may be spotted by a Secret Service Agent that wanders the grassy area below.
So I will go through the West Wing to safely get back to the Main Building.

Enter the door into the West Wing and make your way to the stairs at the
north side of the floor. Go down the stairs and through the door at the
bottom. Turn left at the next corner and proceed east. Angle northeast at the
next corner to go down a long hallway leading to a door that goes outside.

Now for one method that will work on the easier difficulty levels:

  >>The "Enemy Mined" Method
    ************************
      Head straight south from the outside door and you will get to window 
      for the Oval Office. You will see Parchezzi run into a room on the 
      other side but that is okay.

      Plant an RU-AP Mine by the side of the window then head east toward a 
      tree about halfway through this area. Stand at the south side of the 
      tree and wait for the Vice President to come out and stand in the 
      middle of this area.

      When he heads to the Oval Office window then check the West Wing, 1st 
      Floor Map. Look for Parchezzi who is going in a counterclockwise patrol 
      within the Oval Office. When he gets to the window to meet with the VP 
      then Detonate the Mine. The explosion will kill them both at once.

      From here, scroll down to "Escape".

When you go outside then head east to another double door that leads back
into the Main Building. Follow the hallway inside and take it back up to the
1st Floor and inside the West Stairwell. You will see a solitary Marine ahead
of you. He is guarding the office for the Vice President. Go right on in and
stand in the middle of the room then Prep your Poison.

More than likely he will not be inside his office. The First Lady has the VP
under her thumb and makes him take her dog, Justice, out on frequent walks.
After he returns from a walk then he will go inside the First Lady's office
and he will head through another room to go back into his office. There are
two doors leading into his office.

Depending on which door he heads to will determine the first place he will
stop inside his office.

If he heads to the north door then he will stand at the south end of the
fireplace while looking northeast. If he goes through the south door then he
will stand at the window at the southwest corner of the room. When you
determine which door he will enter from then head to the appropriate spot,
wait for him to stop in front of you, then Poison him.

It is important to note that the First Lady may call him back before he gets
to either spot. If that happens then speed walk behind him and Poison him
before he gets too far from you. After killing the VP then drag his body into
the next room where you will find a wooden Container. Dump his body into it
to complete one objective.

Now it's time to go after Parchezzi.

Head back to the 1st Floor of the West Wing going the same way you came. Then
head to the north door of the Oval Office. Before going in you should either
Prep your Poison or Silenced Pistol. Then enter the Oval Office to trigger a
cutscene with Parchezzi.

After the cutscene ends then he will trigger a mine that was planted on the
door behind you and flee while you are knocked to the ground. Your Threat
Meter will go yellow and remain that way through the end of the mission but
that is okay as it will not negatively affect your score.

Now, before I go any further, there is one interesting tactic you can use on
the easier difficulty levels if you use a Silenced Pistol:

  >>The "Draw!" Method
    ******************
      This idea comes courtesy of TheAuZZieGamer who posted this on YouTube.

      Before entering the Oval Office then bring out your Silenced Pistol and 
      go into 1st Person Mode. After the cutscene ends then you can kill 
      Parchezzi before he can flee if you fire fast enough.

      After playing around with this I found that it works best if you *HOLD 
      DOWN* the Fire Button while the cutscene plays. Then you will fire a 
      shot and kill him just after the cutscene ends.

      However, on the console versions I found that he still manages to 
      Detonate the Mine before I can kill him. This means his body will be 
      found by the Secret Service - and no SA on Professional difficulty.

      Interestingly enough, if you have the Full Auto upgrade on the Silenced 
      Silverballer, then, when you fire, you will completely use up the 
      entire clip before you can regain control of the gun.

      From here, scroll down to "Escape".

As you are on the ground then turn your camera to look at the door that
Parchezzi just ran through. When you finally get up then go around the north
end of the couch, which is the shortest path to the door, and run through the
open door. Run through all of the doors and turn north when you get through
the last one. Run east at the corner and follow the way back to the stairs
leading up to the 2nd Floor.

If you are fortunate enough then you may encounter Parchezzi in the
stairwell. Keep behind him though. He will fire on you if you manage to pass
him up. I should point out that this doesn't happen often.

Follow him and he will lead you and up back out onto the roof. You should
still be fairly close to him. Now for two tactics based on what you Prepped
before entering the Oval Office:

  >>Poison
    ******
      As Parchezzi heads down the long straightaway toward the scaffolding 
      then bring out your Poison. If you are close enough then, when he stops 
      at the point between the two vents, then you can quickly nail him (if 
      you're *REALLY* close then you can get him in mid-stride before he gets 
      there).

      If he runs off before you can get him then he will stop just north of 
      you. Get up close to him so he doesn't fire and "use" the Poison in an 
      attempt to either Punch him or, if he turns around to either run or get 
      a better firing angle, Poison him.

      It should be pointed out that you can't Disarm him even if you were 
      un-armed. You can only knock him out. If he runs off again then he will 
      head to the south vent. If he does so then he may manage to fire a shot 
      while you are up in his face.

      Keep up with up and continue to Punch him until he is knocked out or 
      you manage to nail him. If you knock him out then Poison him. If he 
      manages to fire off at least one shot then note where he fired it. When 
      he is dead then drag him to a point opposite from where he fired the 
      shot.

      For example, if he fired at you from the south vent, then drag his body 
      to the east side of the north vent. Any Marine that comes up to 
      investigate will go to the exact spot where the shot was fired.

      That means, in this case, then he will go to the south vent. After 
      looking around then he will head back. By hiding the body in this way 
      then you greatly decrease the chance that the body will be found.

If that doesn't work for you then there is this:

  >>Silenced Pistol
    ***************
      As Parchezzi heads down the long straightaway toward the scaffolding 
      then bring out your Silenced Pistol. Then either line up the Crosshair 
      at his head to fire one shot into it or put several rounds into his 
      back - your choice.

      If you brought the SLP .40 .S Pistol then just drop it after you kill 
      him - you won't need it anymore.

After Parchezzi is dead then it is time to:

  >>Escape
    ******
      From the West Wing rooftop then go back down to the 1st Floor and back 
      outside. Head back into the Main Building and to the West Stairwell. Go 
      back through the 1st Floor and to the East Stairwell. Then go back 
      through the Basement and to the East Wing.

      Re-enter the Museum. If you brought the Silenced Silverballer then head 
      outside and store it inside the ICA Crate. Go back into the Restroom 
      and change back into your Suit. Then quickly exit back out of the 
      Restroom, go back outside, and to the Exit Point to successfully 
      complete the mission.

After the death of the Vice President, 47 is in his hideout cleaning up his
weapons. But somebody enters his hideout and he hides until he can determine
a course of action.

When he confronts the person he finds that it is Diana. She warns him that
the Police are right outside and they need to find a way out and to get at
the people responsible for the demise of The Agency. She presents 47 a plan
but he remains very skeptical. As he looks over the folder she has just given
him then she stabs him with a needle that contains a drug to render him
unconscious.

Later, she presents her findings to Jack who in turn welcomes her into The
Franchise. Together, along with Rick, they head off to the Church where a
memorial service is planned for the dead assassin.

And this sets up the last mission of the game.....

As Jack hands over evidence of 47's actions in the White House to Rick, Diana
puts something on her lips, places two Silverballers on 47's chest, and gives
him a good-bye kiss.....

There is one level to the Map and that is the Church Grounds. This unusual
looking Church has a set of stairs that leads to an underground hallway. The
main gates are to the west and the Point of Interest to the southeast is a
Crypt that contains several melee weapons: Shovel, Screwdriver, Hedge Cutter,
Hammer, and a Kitchen Knife.

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

The hard part to this mission was to figure out a way to minimize getting
shot at until you reach a safe place to ambush the Agents to get rid of them
and acquire better weapons. The problem with this strategy is that how much,
or how little, you get shot up at the beginning is random. Most times you get
shot up a little, sometimes you get shot up a lot, and sometimes you won't
get hit at all.

This is especially problematic at Professional difficulty since they can kill
you before you get too far most of the time. Even more annoying is the fact
that you have no body armor or standard items to help you.

I've tried to use the method of taking the Priest hostage but I have never
been able to make that work for me on a consistent basis so I went with the
"Run Like Hell to the Crypt" method.

It is especially important not to fire your Silverballers too much because
they take a very long time to reload and that is the last thing you need to
be doing when you are dealing by a bunch of Agents. If you find yourself in a
reloading situation with them in the middle of a firefight then you might as
well restart since you will be killed very quickly, especially at
Professional difficulty.

However, by going to the Crypt, you can Disarm and pick them off one by one
or in small groups when they try to confront you.

Even though it is somewhat irritating to play at Professional difficulty this
is a reasonably quick mission so it won't take too long to play through even
with multiple attempts.

And, by completing this mission on the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions on any
difficulty, then you will acquire the {Redemption} Accomplishment.

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

When you begin the mission then you will be laying down and the credits will
start to play. Your screen will be fuzzy and everybody will move in slow
motion. Every few seconds you will hear a thump and your screen will clear up
for a little bit then go fuzzy again.

You're not dead, of course, you've just been given the same drug that you
gave Agent Smith in the mission "Flatline" and the kiss that Diana gave you
is the antidote to help you get out of your coma. But now you've got to get
up before the credits play out and you end up being cremated.

At this stage you will be facing south. Inside the Church are eleven people -
eight of them Agents. In addition, there are two more Agents heading towards
the cars outside.

To get up, rotate your Left Analog Stick to wake up 47 (On the PC version you
need to rapidly go through your movement keys). As he gets up then things
will clear up but you will still be in slow motion for a few seconds.

As you get get up, turn left, and east, then run out of the open door. Do not
try to shoot at any of the Agents - there are too many of them to face at
once.

As you run out the door then angle right to use the wall as a shield from the
attacking Agents as you run southeast toward the glass wall. As you near the
glass wall then angle east alongside it. As you run east then you should see
a tree to your left. Angle northeast to get behind the tree so you can use it
as a shield from the Agents.

When you get to the small tombstone at the cliff edge then turn right and go
south along the east side of the Church. Stick close to the wall as you
proceed.

It should be noted that on Professional difficulty you may be left with very
little health or killed most of the time before you reach the next corner.
However, it is possible to have at least half of your health on some
attempts.

When you reach the next corner then continue straight and south while
sticking close to the wall of the Church. Turn right at the next corner and
angle towards the tree. Just before you get to the tree then turn south go
down the hill.

When you get down the hill then turn left and head towards the Crypt built
into the hill. When you get inside then you will find the weapons listed
above. If everything has gone right then you should still have plenty of
health left.

The Crypt is a safe place to deal with the Agents. They cannot open the door
and go inside so you can use it as a shield. The best thing to do is wait for
one of them to get real close to the door, quickly open the door, then Disarm
him and sidestep right so the other Agents cannot get a good shot at you as
you wait for the door to close.

When they are in a group then you will have to be careful when opening the
door. If you want to pick off an Agent then go into 1st Person Mode, sidestep
left or right, then quickly open the door, pick off one Agent, then quickly
close the door. This tactic will allow you to conserve your health and ammo.

When you get your hands on either the SLP .40 Pistol or MP7 then use them
instead of the Silverballers.

Sometimes an Agent may have his back turned towards the door as he looks
around. Quickly open the door then push him in the back to knock him down the
small set of stairs in front of the Crypt and knock him out. If the
opportunity presents itself then knock out any Agent that you Disarmed so you
can clear the way for other Agents to get to the door.

Be patient and carefully pick off and knock out all of the Agents that
approach the Crypt. When you have dealt with most or all of them then leave
the Crypt but kill any that you have knocked unconscious. Then go around the
Church and carefully lure any Agents that remain to the Crypt.

When you get to the cars you may find at least one Agent in addition to Jack.
There is a high cliff northeast of their position. Go to this cliff and
carefully pick off the Agent first then Jack using the MP7 in short,
controlled bursts - go into 1st Person Mode for better aim. Even though you
can clearly see them they don't seem to know you're there.

If you're running low on ammo then you can try luring Jack to the Church. Get
close enough to him to make him start firing at you. Then run back into the
Church and go downstairs. When Jack finally enters the Church then he will
try to come down the stairs.

However, even though you saw him successfully go down the stairs in the
cutscene before the mission "Amendment XXV", he will die when he tries to go
down (he will be fatally bounced from his wheelchair). After he's dead
regardless then kill the unarmed Priest and Rick to successfully complete the
mission and the game.
