HITMAN – Elusive Target #13 – The Ex-Dictator – How I did it!

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Hitman

A new elusive target, just days after the 6th chapter is released. I havn’t even had the time yet to try out the Hokkaido map. But enough about that. For the first time in this Hitman game I get a target that is truly believable. The other targets, with Jordan Cross as an exception, has felt a bit like the James Bond villains. A little bit too much to be true. But this, an dictator that has been embezzling his country for years now lives out his last days in luxuary in exile. Hated by his people, but un-reachable, until now! Agent 47 is on […]

HITMAN – Elusive Target #12 – The Fixer – How I did it!

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Hitman

2 elusive targets in a row spells luck for me. Since I failed ET#11 I kind of need this one I would like to think. After a scouting run to see what he does I came up with a bunch of ideas on how to do things. Electrecution in the park. Chandelier drop in either stairs or great hall. Throw of balcony. Some kind of accident on the porch. I went for the electrecution in the park since this ET felt way to easy and I just wanted to get over with it. Fix the plug, wait for him to make his call, dismiss his […]

HITMAN – Elusive Target #11 – How I did not made it!

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Hitman

So yey! New elusive target, number 11, or the 3rd real shot I had. First I do some recon runs without even doing anything. I follow the fixer from the consulate, I follow him back, I follow the courier around and figure out where the pick up is done and all. And then I put my plan into motion. I was about to re-use my old tactics from the A House Built on Sand and shoot down the sign on the target. I found the perfect spot, I waited, target was in sight, but I figured he had to go the meeting first so I waited […]

HITMAN – Colorado: Freedom Fighters – How I made it! *Spoiler Alert*

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Hitman

It is time to wrap up the 5th episode of Hitman and for the first time I did not have a clue on how to go about this mission. All I know is that I have the SA/SO challenges left plus Piano Man and String Quartet. Since I play by the rule of starting point is the original one and the kills should be with the fibre wire I figured that I could need some kind of help along the way. I decided to start with a lockpick in the closest pick up location from my starting point which turned out to be the garden […]

Hitman – Colorado: Freedom Fighters – Challenges

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Hitman

Just cleaning up amongst the challenges and feats on the Colorado mission. There were a few that I didn’t manage to get yet. Also turned out I managed to unlock a new achievement on Steam as well by doing so. Giddy up butter-cup. So with “Howdy Partner”, “Gunslinger”, “Rep Tires” and the last feat, escaping with the boat on the river. So tomorrow I’m ready for the final task, to complete all related to SA/SO and the fibre wire. And that would be all for Colorado for a while. The map is massive in it’s own way and I’ve had a lot of fun with it, […]

Hitman – Colorado: Freedom Fighters

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Hitman

The fifth episode in Hitman takes you to Colorado and a mission called Freedom Fighters. This mission is very different from the previous ones in many ways. Not only did some game play changes come into play, but the whole area is considered hostile territory / you are trespassing and the general rule is: shoot first, ask no questions. The mission takes place on a farm populated by some 130 armed “freedom fighters”. The map is at first glance quite big and a bit confusing since there seem to be almost like a labyrinth of cultivation boxes scattered in front of the actuall place where you […]

HITMAN – Elusive Target #10

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Hitman

Elusive target number ten, in Paris. Number 2 for me. A quite well familiar map by now. Interestingly enough the target moves over the whole map, except for the basement. This means there are a lot of good opportunities for the hit. I must admit that I spent quite some time stalking my prey, trying to figure out the best place. The garden looked promising, I could just lay in ambush and cap her from the small park and get away within seconds. Or I could let her enter the building and let her walk up the first stair in her path and then drop […]

Hitman – Bangkok: Club 27 – How I made it! *Spoiler Alert*

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Hitman

My initial idea was to get Jordan Cross flying out the window, just like he did with that girl. So I started up the opportunity where that is possible and had him throw Ken Morgan out the window, then I threw a coin at the window to have him move closer and then I threw him out. Only problem is, that required me to change outfit 2 times which will not result in a SA/SO. So I had to re-think. Which means I more or less figured out different ways to strangle Jordan Cross instead. The easiest way is probably to lure him into his […]

Hitman – Bangkok: Club 27

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Hitman

Here I am with a cup of coffee, the most important cup of coffee to be honest. The first one right after breakfast. I guess that if I was a smoker, this would probably be a good time to have a cigarette. I’ve just started up Hitman, logged in and so on. I’m watching the screen and it says that I’m about 19.5/20 Mission Mastery and that got me thinking. I’ve have not had any reflections of the level at all. I just got on with it after doing some escalations and contracts right after finishing Marrakesh. And then, when most challanges/feats was done it […]

Hitman Unlocks

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Hitman

A word about the unlocks in this game. They seem to be a controversial topic on the forums, many hate them, many loves them. Myself, I feel a bit caught in the middle. some of the unlocks are nice, but some are just plan silly. My guess is that they are to be viewed as something funny rather than something really usefull. I can see that the dagger, Janbiya have a connection to the Marrakesh level since it’s an arabic dagger but it really does feel out of place. Not so “Hitmanish” if you say so. Same goes for Nna Obaras machete which I can’t really find […]

Elusive Targets, Contracts & Escalations

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Hitman

Elusive Target – The Black Hat Last weekend I did my first Elusive Target. It was number 9 in order, so it means I’ve missed the first 8 elusive targets. Well, that is half true, because I had a shot at elusive target number 8 also but I only had like 1 hour of gameplay behind me when it was released plus I only had about 1 hour of gameplay left before I needed to leave home and that didn’t give me much of a chance to find and eleminate him. But… Last weekend, I got my first hit! He was not so hard to […]

Hitman – The Icon & A House Built On Sand

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Hitman

2 of the bonus missions, I think there is a third coming soon. I found these two to be quite entertaining although a bit short. Both made use of already used maps, The Icon used the Sapienza map, re-modelled though to fit the scenario and A House Built On Sand used the Marrakesh map, or parts of it anyway. The Icon A movie is beeing recorded in the main square of Sapienza. The director of the movie is also having the lead role and he is also the target and according to the briefing, somewhat of an asshole. So killing him should be fun, right? […]

Hitman – Marrakesh: The Gilded Cage

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Hitman

Not sure where to start on this one. I’ve read a lot of critics against the map for instance. People say it’s large and confusing, but linear and too simple in it’s layout. At a first glance I can agree on that the map is somewhat confusing and I still get lost at occasions trying to find my way around it. Linear, yes and no. The map is mainly made up of 3 sections, the Sisha Cafe, the Swedish consulate and the school area which makes the small alleys and the bazaar not so interesting. I found myself spending most time around these 3 areas, […]

Hitman – Sapienza: World of Tomorrow – How I made it! *Spoiler Alert*

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Hitman

Yeah, so I thought I should give away my secret Silent Assassin skills for this level as well. Same as before, you start out in the original starting location with the “Italian suit” on and silenced gun, piano wire and some coins. For this level I needed something smuggled so I choose the lockpick in the ICA Safehouse. I also assume you’re familliar enough with the map to understand what I talk about. Now, three, two, one GO! By the way, pictures in post is unrelated to the text. From the bench, run towards the house where the ICA Safehouse is located, across the square […]
