ii. Introduction

This is my first-ever attempt at writing a FAQ, so please bare with me as we
go along.  Basically, I'm here to present to you a thorough look at the game
and all of its attention to detail because first of all, it's one incredibly
tough game, and second of all, I absolutely love it.

Taking the time to write this FAQ has proven to be a lot more demanding than
I originally had thought it to be.  It's lots of fun, but it does eat away 
my time.  I would have to say that the biggest challenge in writing this has
been to best give directions for a very visual game in a very non-visual
medium.  Considering that this is strictly text, I apologize in advance for
not being able to provide screenshots or maps for you.  I hope that I've put
enough in here so that you don't get too lost.  IO-Interactive has obviously
put a LOT of work into this game, and hopefully, this FAQ will give it the
respect it deserves.

The plan, insofar as I can actually call anything I think of as a plan, is
to get every mission covered as quickly as possible with as many variations
as I can possibly test.  It's a gruelling job considering I have to restart
every time I purposely pooch the mission, but hey, anything I can think of,
no matter how ridiculous, is worth trying.  After I get as much as I can 
into the mission walkthroughs, I will eventually return with even more
variations on the missions.  Hey, I might even come up with a better way to
do things.  Well, on with the show.

(P.S. Any strategy guide companies wanna offer me a job? ;) )


1.0 Interface

I assume that you all have instruction manuals for this game, so I'm not 
to regurgitate everything in it, word for word.  This section is here to
basically give you the suggestions and point out anything you might miss.

1.1 Movement Setup

I highly recommend that whatever setup you use, be it the WASD (my fave) or
NumPad setup (or, if you use your own personal configuration, skip this 
switch the "turn" and "strafe" buttons.  This is ESPECIALLY recommended for
fans of the FPS genre.  Nothing will annoy you more than turning when you 
to strafe around.

So, in general:
Use 4 and 6 to strafe left and right respectively if using the NumPad setup,
or A and D to strafe left and right respectively if using the WASD setup.

But WHATEVER YOU DO, use the mouse!!

1.2 Sneaking

Sneaking is annoying at times due to the slow movement, but it is the best
way to exploit the AI.

Eventually, you'll find that killing up close and personal might be better
suited to your needs than going in guns a-blazin', but you'll also find
that enemy guards have incredible hearing.  That is to say, when you pull
out your trusty garrotte wire or Oyabun knife, the guards have a knack for
turning around and planting a bullet into your chest.

More often than not, going into sneak mode will totally counteract this
sense of hearing akin only to that of Marvel Comics' Daredevil.  For some
odd reason, you can stand behind a guard and, for example, pull out your
knife and be heard, but stand at the same distance in sneak mode and do
the same thing and the guard knows nothing of what you're doing.

1.3 Leaning

Leaning is something that's rarely offered in games like this, so it's
only natural for the casual gamer to neglect its usefulness.  So remember:


Sometimes there's no possible way to slit your target's throat and thus,
you'll have to resort to some high-speed projectiles to take him/her out.
Leaning around corners is one of the best approaches to doing this
(aside from lining up shots behind closed doors) because, again, more
often than not, a guard won't detect your weapon if you're peeking around
a corner.  This is excellent maneuvering for getting those head-shots.

1.4 Firing Your Weapon

You might want to play it out like Hollywood, but what Hollywood doesn't
tell you is that guns don't always fire where you aim 'em.  Always
make sure you pick the right weapon for the right distance, otherwise
you'll be wasting lots of ammo, and nobody wants that.  Here's a guide:

Wire/Knife:       In your face
Pistols:          High accuracy up close and far away
Sub-Machine Guns: Larger rooms, but better up close
Rifles:           Moderate-sized rooms, plenty of enemies
Sniper Rifles:    Up high and away

1.5 Strangling

Strangling is great fun.  It's all part of the atmosphere.  The downside
is that strangling someone with the garrotte wire is time-consuming
and usually, you need to make the kill when there's a patrolling guard
close by.

If you know for sure that there is no possible way for anyone to witness
the strangulation by walking into the scene, then by all means, go for it.
It's loads of fun.  Make sure you remember to ready up the wire before
you make the kill, otherwise your target will hear the tell-tale "sching"

However, if there's a patroller around, or bumbling civilians that you
know are going to turn the corner before the animation is done, use
a knife.  It's faster, and just as silent.

1.6 Dragging

The manual doesn't lie when it tells you to make your kill near your
'dumping grounds'.  Dragging a body takes time, usually time that you're
incredibly short on, so make sure that if you've got a target you know
you want to drag away, then don't do it in, say, a hallway with no alcoves,
doorways, or pits.

What the manual doesn't tell you is how to move the dead body around.
Hitman is incredibly strong and can toss a limp body around like a rag
doll.  The only thing is, physics demands that the body be behind you when
you drag it (duh), so it might be a problem getting that body into a pit
that's in front of you without falling into it yourself.  If you're poised,
for example, at the edge of an open sewer grate, swing your mouse so that
the body is hanging (either by your hand or on its own) over the open hole
and then let go.  Ususally, the body will slide in on its own (you gotta
love gravity), but if the body's butt is in the air and not going down,
pick up a leg and give it a little nudge.

*THE STRAFE-DRAG TECHNIQUE*:  As you're dragging the body, instead of
walking forward or backward, strafe in the direction you wish and tap
the run button several times as you go along.  You'll find that you won't
drop the body as you do this (so long as you don't hold down the run
button) and that you'll move a lot quicker than regular dragging.

*ADVANCED STRAFE-DRAG TECHNIQUE*: As long as you're holding the strafe
button down, I've found that you can run full speed and not drop the
body.  The only trick to this is that you can't look up too far while
you're doing it, otherwise the body sometimes gets caught on something
or just plain slips out of your hands.  If you know where you're going,
look at the ground and have a laugh as you drag a body across long
distances in a very short amount of time.

1.7 Changing Clothes

You're not just playing Mr. Dressup here.  Changing clothes is an essential
part of the game.  Not only does it make you inconspicuous, it also gets
you into several places to advance in each mission.  What's not mentioned
in the manual is that changing clothes while you're under suspicion (when
the guards are looking for someone of your description) takes the heat off
you for a while... IF nobody's there to see you do it.

1.8 Sniping

Ah, sniping.  What fps (or, in this case, fps hybrid) would be complete
without a sniper gun?

What makes Hitman stand out is that its sniping mode accounts for subtle
body movements, the likes of which I have only seen in Metal Gear Solid.
That is to say, the scope WILL move as you try to line up your shot.
You'll want to smack Hitman for being such a heavy breather, but hey,
everyone's gotta breathe.

There are two ways to snipe where you want to snipe.
a) Get used to the bobbing movement of the scope and time your shot as
   the crosshairs pass your target; or
b) Learn the timing of the bobbing and slide your mouse opposite to keep the
   crosshairs still.

I find that option (b) is a bit harder to get used to, but in the end you
get better results.  Mistiming a snipe might mean you get a body shot.

1.9 The Map


No matter how much you think you know the layout of the mission, there is
always the possibility that you'll get lost somewhere.  Hit M (default)
to bring up the map and reorient yourself.

Furthermore, you may also gain hints in the mission as to locations of
certain objects you're looking for.  If you receive this kind of info,
head to the map and you might just see it marked for your convenience.

Oh yeah, and to zoom, click on the magnifying glass and then hover over
whatever you want to see up close and slide the mouse forward or backward
with the button held down.

1.11 The Laptop

The laptop is your in-between interface.  It provides useful information,
as well as a screen for making your weapons purchase before the mission.
The thing you must ALWAYS check before you enter the mission is your goals.
It's tempting to jump right into the action, but you won't get anywhere
without knowing what your goals are, and eventually, the agency stops
making its weapons 'suggestions', leaving you with only a handgun to
raid a complex.  Not fun at all.

2.0 The HUD

2.1 The Static Display

This isn't your standard shooter where you can take a rocket in the face
and just brush it off like you're Superman.

The static display is everything that is constantly on your screen.  These

Selected Item

Bullets do indeed hurt Hitman much moreso than heroes in other games (except
maybe Rainbow Six).  Keep a close eye on your health, during and after a
firefight.  If you're really low on health, chances are you won't make it to
the end of the mission if you're not already there.  Take the time to 
or it's likely you'll suffer the frustration of getting further and dying.

If your Armor (if you have it) is low, take the time to find a new vest,
especially if your health is near or under the 50% mark.  Chances are
you'll get hit in the body more often than you'll be hit in the head and
the kevlar will help keep you alive without spending $3000 to continue.

Finally, the Selected Item is something you should glance at every now
and then, especially after a kill or a firefight.  The last thing you want
to do is be forgetful and walk into a room with your weapon drawn.  If you
don't intend to use it, put it away.

2.0 The Dynamic Display

************READ THIS, SKIMMERS************

Next to your health readout is a space for your Action Display.  PAY CLOSE
ATTENTION TO THIS SPACE.  If anything pops up in that space, chances are
that you'll need to know what it's saying, and it doesn't stay up there for
long.  There are three types of boxes that appear here:

This box lets you know a sample of what you can do with the object your
pointer is hovering over.  For example, if you're hovering over an object
that you can pick up, it will tell you so.

This is the most important box to look out for while you're in a mission.
It will tell you two things:
  a) If a guard finds a body, and
  b) If you're under suspicion.
If you're ever wondering why people are firing at you, you probably don't
know because you missed this box.  Pay close attention to it, and the second
it says you're under suspicion, go find some new threads to change into.

This box's importance juggles with the Warning box.  It's important info
that you need to know, but doesn't have anything to do with your actions.
Usually, it's like your eye in the sky, telling you exactly what other 
are doing in the mission.  On timed missions or on missions where your 
can leave the map, make sure you look at this box because if your target
takes off, it's a 'fail'.

3.0 Weapons

3.1 The Garrotte (Piano) Wire

Also known as the Fibre Wire when purchasing it, this is an entertaining
weapon.  It offers you a silent and unfailing kill should you manage to
get it around your target's neck.  Use it wisely as it takes a bit of time
to get your target onto the ground and more often than not, you're going
to have to hide that body quickly.

3.2 The Oyabun Knife

Also known as the Pentagon, the Oyabun is perfect for the quick and silent
hit from behind, or the surprise slashfest from the front.  It has the
distinct advantage over the Garrotte in that the speed with which you take
down a target from behind is much more efficient than strangulation.

    Pistols/Handguns in general are reliable weapons due to their accuracy
    even at long distances and that you can conceal six of them on you.
    Even still, you can go John Woo style with two guns firing away in a
    hot firefight.  They are especially useful in long-distance shoot-outs.

3.3 AMT 1911 'Hardballer'

The main handgun of choice in the game (as it is commonly suggested by the
agency), the Hardballer has the distinct advantage over its counterpart,
the Beretta 92. in that it seems to be a bit more powerful in its damage
factor.  Its downside is that it only carries 7 bullets per clip and
is a bit worse in the noise department.  It uses "pistol ammo".

3.4 Beretta 92.

The main handgun of choice for ME is the Beretta.  Not only does it come in
the 'silenced' option for a few extra bucks, but it's a bit more silent
without the muffler than the Hardballer, and it also holds 8 extra bullets
per clip.  And for what it's worth, 15 bullets in a firefight is better
than 7 in my books.  Reloading in the middle of a firefight can bring you
a serious amount of pain and with the Beretta, the reloading comes less
frequently than when using the Hardballer.  It uses "pistol ammo".

3.5 Desert Eagle XIX

While it remains my favorite gun of all time, it isn't suited for the
stealthy play of Hitman unless, of course, you're prepared to give the
enemy one heck of an onslaught.  Great for clearing out areas, the Desert
Eagle is a noisy and messy gun that is efficient at taking out your targets
in both the head and the body.  7 bullets of incredible power, this gun uses
".50 Magnum" ammunition.

    Sub-machine guns are close-quarters weapons and should be used as such.
    In Hitman, and IRL, sub-machine guns have lower accuracy as the range
    at which you're firing increases.  While they have some use in larger
    rooms, you're best off keeping it to room-sized rooms (as opposed to
    large, open rooms where the guards can pick you off with pistols) and
    whatever you do, DON'T SPRAY.  Spraying is an incredibly inefficient way
    to fire an automatic gun.  Keep it in short, aimed bursts and you'll 
    your enemies down much faster.  You can conceal up to two on you.

3.6 Heckler and Koch MP5

The staple of SWAT teams and any close-quarters combat situations, the MP5 
one of the best guns in the game.  It's a great weapon for mowing down your
enemies and better yet, it proves to be an incredibly accurate gun compared
to its in-game counterpart, the UZI.  The only thing you have to be wary of
is its high rate of fire.  If you don't pay attention, you'll be plugging
already-dead bodies full of bullets and you'll have no ammunition left for
the living.  Even better YET, it comes in a silenced mode later in the game!
It uses "SMG Ammo".

3.7 Israeli Military Industries UZI

The UZI, while I knocked on it in the MP5 description a little, isn't really
that bad of a weapon.  It has a lower rate of fire than the MP5 and lower
accuracy, but it makes up for this in that it packs a bit more of a punch.
That is, if you can get it to hit anything.  The gun's major downfall is 
it fires bullets like a lawn sprinkler: everywhere.  Don't count on getting
too many head shots with this gun, so you'll be expending a lot more ammo
trying to get through body armor.  Again, short, controlled bursts is the 
way to getting use out of this weapon, and it can be a devastating weapon
if you know how to use it.  Oh, and I don't think there's a silencer for 
beast.  It uses "SMG Ammo".

    The rifle class gun in Hitman is all about power and less about 
    Included in this class are the shotgun and the AK-47.  As we all know
    from playing Quake and other FPSs, the shotgun is best used up close
    and personal.  The AK-47 is the same, but it can be useful at a 
    but not TOO far a distance.  The downfall of carrying so much power
    under your arm is that you can't conceal it.  If you've got to carry one
    make sure you're dressed for the occassion, or make sure you're ready to
    use it.  You can carry up to one rifle at a time, WITH NO CONCEALMENT.

3.8 Mossberg Persuader Shotgun

It's loud, it's messy, it's incredibly powerful.  What more could you ask 
Again, in a firefight, reloading can be tricky and the unfortunate thing
about this pump-action shotgun is that it loads one shell at a time, meaning
you better be ready to take some hits or duck and weave as you ready up the
next round to take a bite out of someone's arse.  The best use for the
shotgun would probably be holding down a hoarde in a bottleneck.  If you're
in trouble and you've got this baby handy, lead everyone into a tight spot
and pick them off as they're forced to come one by one.  Bang, shick-shock.
It uses "Shotgun shells".

3.9 Franchi PA3/215

Oddly enough, I have no information screen for this weapon, but taking it
into the mission is the only way to truly test these things out, right?
The Franchi is the better of the two shotguns in the game.  While the 
and the Franchi don't differ too much in the way of firepower, the Franchi
does have one distinct advantage; a magazine that holds 8 shells.  What does
this mean?  Well, my fellow killers, it means the ability to fire the gun
like a semi-auto without having to reload after every shot.  While a great
advantage in the comparison between shotguns, it, like the Mossberg, still
needs to be used up close for any efficient use.  I haven't seen a single
instance in which a shotgun is necessary, but who knows, maybe further down
the line.

3.10 Kalashnikov AK-103 (AK-47)

Affectionately known as the AK-47, you commonly see this gun in movies in 
hands of the bad guy.  Probably something to do with its availability.
Anyways, the AK-47 is a fully automatic machine gun.  Like the shotgun, it's
incredibly loud, and incredibly powerful.  However, it is also incredibly
inaccurate.  Best suited not for range battles, but for taking out a lot of
mean people very quickly.  Use this gun when you've got hoardes after you,
and trust me, you will, and there will be juicy bits and pieces flying
everywhere.  Just make sure you aim it.  Remember, folks, nothing over 20
meters.  It uses "7.62mm clips".
    * Despite the obvious difference in color between the two guns, it's 
      reported that the AK-103 fires a bit faster and a bit more accurately
      than the AK-47.  I still don't see the difference, but hey, who am I
      to argue?

3.11 M16A2

What game using licensed guns would be complete without the good ol' M16?
This gun, using a smaller caliber round than the AK-47 delivers a bit
less on the damage aspect of things, but more than makes up for it in
longer distance accuracy.  In the right situation where you can focus
in your line of sight, the M16 can be your best friend.  Be careful when
purchasing it, though.  It's a tempting buy, but you can't conceal it.
You might as well just paint a target on your butt.  It uses "Machinegun
    * Apparently, the M16A2 in Hitman is not accurately portrayed.  It
      is not a full auto (thought it was), but instead shoots 3-round
      bursts.  What appears in the game is actually the A1.  (Info from
      M. Warner)

3.12 US Army M60

The M60 is a beast, hands down, but then again, so is the Hitman, especially
when he can run with this thing in his arms when the thing itself requires
a tripod to balance its muzzle.  The best part about this gun is that you
can buy a stock of up to 300 rounds, and that is a lot of power.  I haven't
noticed a difference in the rate of fire between the M60 and the M16, but
obviously, the power advantage in the M60 requires a lower accuracy.  Still,
it remains a great long-distance shooter and with 300 rounds, who cares if
you miss from time to time?  It also carries 20 more rounds in its magazine
than the M16.  It uses "Machinegun Ammo".
    * The M60 in Hitman is supposed to have a higher ROF than the M16, but
      this is not so in Hitman.  It's also supposed to be a two-man weapon;
      one to shoot, and one to feed the ammo.  (Also from M. Warner)

3.13 M134 Minigun

Power of biblical proportions.  If Metal Gear Solid and those Making-Of 
I've seen way back when people still thought they were interesting (I still 
have taught me anything, it's that a minigun like this cannot possibly 
Jesse Ventura in Predator?  Specially made.  Arnie in T2?  Specially made.
Vulcan Raven in MGS?  He tore it off a helicopter.  Oh well, maybe I'm not 
on my gun trivia.  Anyways, I'm glad such a fantastic... well, it's not a 
it's a cannon.  I'm glad such a fantastic cannon has made it into this game.
This is what you want to carry with you if you've ever wanted to toss
lightning bolts from the skies.  At $1000 a clip, there's a reason why you
can't buy this gun in Hong Kong.  The first you'll ever see of it is in
Colombia, and needless to say, there's no way you can hide this sucker,
even if you're not shooting at anything.  You can purchase up to 6000 rounds
for it, which is, amazingly, 6 full magazines of ammunition to waste on any
target you want.  Unfortunately, the gun doesn't have too much use when it
appears, but it's fun to bring along anyway.  The big hinderance is that
this weapon is heavy, meaning that you can only walk with it.  Funny, 
if you holster it (you have to choose in the menu, otherwise you drop it),
you can run as much as you like.  The second thing about having this much
power under your arms is that you have to wait for the barrel to prime 
That is to say, the barrel has to start spinning before it starts spitting,
so make sure you're prepared to take a few hits because there's no way you
can surprise ANYONE with this.  Love it or leave it, it requires a lot of
grunting to take in (apologies to Tim Allen).  It uses "machinegun ammo".
(Since its original writing, I have been informed that such a Minigun
-does- indeed exist.  It's a crazy world out there!)

***Minigun Tip***
If you know you're going to fire and want to avoid the priming of the
barrel, tap the trigger (click the mouse) to get the barrel spinning.  The
next time you hit the trigger, you should be firing instantaneously so make
sure you hold it down when you do (unless, of course, you've already made
minced meat out of everyone).

3.14 Blaser Jugowaffen R93 Sniper

Claimed to be the "assassin's most lethal weapon" by the folks at Eidos and
IO (they've obviously not seen the Professional), the R93 will give you
plenty of fun and makes a great Christmas gift for Grandma.  Seriously,
though, while it is fun to pick a spot and pick off your targets, the
unsilenced sniper rifle of Hitman, while tempting, is rarely useful outside
of the high-and-dry missions.  On several occassions, you'll see one lying
around, just calling out to you, but ignore it.  If you're seen with it, 
to have your butt lit up.  If you're not seen with it, expect one good shot
before the entire complex knows where you are and what you look like.  It's
a very loud gun and draws much unwanted attention.  On small missions, if
you wish, bring it along for fun, but on the missions where the maps take
a half hour to navigate, leave it at home.  Restarting because you alerted
everyone for one clean shot is no fun.  It uses "Sniper Ammo".

3.15 Walther WA2000 Sniper

You won't get to use this rifle until much later in the game when you reach
Rotterdam.  I didn't even know Walther made a sniper rifle... shows what I
know, huh?  Anyways, the gun works and feels the same as the R93.  The only
difference is that the WA2K uses a magazine and holds up to 6 rounds before
you need to reload.  Did someone say semi-automatic sniper rifle?  I think
they did.  Looking at the picture, though, it seems that this gun is of
bull-pup configuration.  For the uninitiated, bull-pup means that you are
basically shortening the rifle without actually hindering range or accuracy.
How this works is that the triggering mechanism is placed in front of the
clip and firing pin instead of behind it.  So imagine the bullet being fired
right next to your ear and wonder if it's worth it (thanks Mark and Xeno)^_^
Just a little trivia for you.  In any case, the bull-pup config works well
as the WA2K adds 200 more meters to its "effective range" listing.  It
uses "Sniper Ammo".

    The special weapons section will cover (eventually) all of the weapons
    that aren't regularly available for purchase.  These are usually
    mission-specific weapons that you will need to use to complete your
    objectives efficiently.  You COULD just shoot everyone, but where'd the
    fun be in that?  Okay, let me rephrase, wouldn't you rather use that
    one-time weapon and save the shoot-up for another day?

3.16a The Car Bomb

The car bomb appears in "Ambush at the Wang Fou Restaurant" and is detonated
remotely.  You'll need a good disguise to plant it and make sure you're
nowhere near it when you decide to press the button.  A word to the wise,
though, there is a slight delay between the call to arm the bomb and the
actual detonation.  It lasts about a second, but it could mean the 
between success and failure.

3.16b Bomb

This bomb appears in Colombia and sits atop Pablo's desk.  It looks like a
block of plastique with a remote detonator in it.  Who knows.  You'll need
to leave it behind in a lab and make sure you're far, far away when you set
it off.

3.16c Luger P08

You'll find this gun in Budapest.  It's exactly like the Beretta, and you'll
only have 8 rounds when you find it.  The plus side is that when you do
find it, it's silenced.

3.16d Chemical Bomb

You'll also find this in Budapest.  You don't actually use it, but Frantz
intends  to blow everything to kingdom come and you need to put a stop to
it... but you can't destroy this thing.  Your client wants it safe and
sound so you need to find something to carry it in before you take it away.

3.16e Derringer

This is the gun that you see in the movies, usually Westerns, and no self-
respecting cowpoke would ever own one (it takes away from the image, you
see), but there's always a point in the flick where he needs a bit of help
and that's where the sassy lass in the big, frilly skirt offers her little
pea shooter.  That's the Derringer.  I haven't actually come across it when
playing except when using the 'giveall' cheat, but I'm sure it's carried by
one of those classy ladies you see in either the Hong Assassination or in
the Budapest mission.  It's completely useless as there really is no need
for a gun so small and so inaccurate (not to mention it's the weakest gun
out there).  It takes up one of your six pistol slots and considering that
as long as a gun is in a certain class, your ability to conceal it doesn't
pay much attention to size.  If you ever find the woman who carries this
and kill her (you fiend, you make me sick!) it's best to leave this gun
alone.  It uses "pistol ammo".

3.16f Sawn-Off Shotgun

By far my favorite gun in terms of entertainment, the Sawn-Off acts as a
semi-automatic pistol (thus, it's concealable), but retains the power of
the shotgun (even moreso).  It holds only two shells, but they can both
be fired off in quick succession and seriously, if you plan to use this,
you're probably cheating already so it's long reload time shouldn't
affect you.  You run into this fantastically fun gun (as it causes people
to fly... literally!) in the Hong Assassination and maybe the Fish
Restaurant.  In any case, you'll have to take out the bartender if you
want to get your hands on it, but once you do, make sure you find some
shells to fill it with as the two rounds you find in it are the only ones
the bartender had on hand.  It uses "shotgun shells".
    * It is important to note that it does indeed act like a pistol AND
      is considered as such.  This means that if you're cheating, have
      some fun and you can pull out two of these suckers.  Even more fun
      is exploiting the "ammo bug", where you wield two guns, but what
      shows up in your display box is the pistol.  So when you fire John
      Woo style, you get the same amount of shotgun shells that your
      pistol can hold.  That is to say, if your pistol holds 15 bullets,
      your sawn-off now holds 15 shells.  Neat, huh?

    This part will cover anything that isn't lethal (at least in the game.
    I mean, who knows, you probably COULD kill someone with a compass) that 
    available for purchase during your pre-mission prep.

3.17a Compass

On every mission, you'll be able to purchase the compass for use.  While
this is a nice feature, it's really not necessary to spend your
hard-earned funds on it on the earlier levels.  It's likely that you'll 
look at it and if you ever get lost, just check the map and reorient 
to where you want to go.  Later on, when the maps get impossibly huge,
you might find that constant map-checking gets tedious, so it might be good
to bring it along.

3.17b Binoculars

Again, this little item may or may not be useful to you.  It can seriously
get in the way, especially if you have "fat fingers" (meaning you go for a
key on your keyboard and miss in the chaos).  Nothing like trying to run
forward when all of a sudden, binocs come into view.  Again, in the earlier
levels, you won't need it.  It'll be $700-some-odd wasted, so leave it
until you get to the big maps.  When the maps are fairly large and open
(it's advised you do a quick run-through before actually attempting to
survive the mission), the binoculars can be an invaluable asset in your
pocket.  First of all, when you're carrying it, you won't be attacked and
it doesn't draw any attention.  Second of all, in big, open spaces, you
might need to take some time to plan a route of attack.  Use them binocs.

3.17c Kevlar Body Armor

Like the Punisher, you can purchase body armor made out of Kevlar, a thick,
yet lightweight fiber that slows most bullets, if not stopping them 
You'll find that eventually, no matter what, you're going to get into a 
out without fail, and that's where kevlar will come into play.  It doesn't
work like Doom armor where it depletes and then your health goes.  No, I'm
afraid that you can still get hurt while wearing it (especially if a bullet
takes a chunk out of your shiny, bald head).  However, it does make the hurt
less than it would be without it.  With a vest on, you're more likely to
survive an onslaught and complete the mission.  Always take it with you as
a precautionary measure, unless you know how to get some within the mission
without taking too many (or any at all) hits.

4.0 Helpful Hints Before You Begin

- A good way to go about a mission is to run through it first and figure out
   what you need to bring with you (or, sometimes, what you don't need to
   bring with you)

- NEVER pull out a weapon unless you intend to use it.

- On that note, when using the knife or wire, do not draw it until the very
   last second.  Otherwise, you risk discovery.

- If you pick up a weapon, put it away if you're not going to use it.

- NEVER shoot cops unless it's absolutely necessary.

- NEVER shoot civilians unless it can't be helped.

- Always bring a silenced weapon if you can.

- Sneak, sneak, sneak before you make a close-up kill with the knife or 

- The wire is fun, but the knife is efficient.

- Keep an eye on your displays.  They're not there for ambience.

- Always watch out for patrolling guards and learn their paths.

- Pick up ammo whenever you can.

- Don't pick up a vest if you have 100% armor.  It's one less vest that you
   can't use if you need a new one.

- The map is your friend.  Kevlar is your friend.

- Don't be afraid to hit Shift-Esc to restart the mission if things aren't
   going your way.  Better to restart than to waste time on something you
   know you're going to fail.

- If you don't have time to drag a body somewhere, just abandon it.
   It's better to have the guards find the body without you there instead
   of having them gun you down as you drag their fallen comrade around.
   What happens when they find the body is dependant on the mission, but
   as long as you're not around during discovery, you won't be put under
   suspicion.  "It's not wrong until you get caught."

- Finally, if there is no possible way to get where you want to go without
   killing silently, then try to find a door that swings both ways so that
   you can stand behind it and line up your shot.  After it closes, draw 
   gun, open the door and let loose the fury.

5.0 Missions

    * It is assumed that you will also purchase ammo for whatever gun you
      bring along.  Anything marked with an asterisk (*) in the recommended
      equipment is a side note on the suggestion and possibly contains an
      optional item to bring.

5.a Training

Training is straightforward.  If you don't know what to do, the obvious 
to do is listen to the voice on the intercom.  If not that, then pick up a
weapon and wait for instructions.  If not that, then follow the outline in
your instruction manual.  If not that, then go out and buy a legitimate copy
of the game.

Let the voice finish speaking if you're interested in what he's saying.  
is to say, pick things up one at a time and stop moving if he's speaking.
That way, you'll hear everything he has to say.

When you ride the elevator up immediately after your sniper training, 
a gun, either a sub-machine gun or a handgun (there's no way you're going to
get close to the orderly).  As soon as you see the orderly coming toward 
put a few bullets in him.  No need to drag him away unless you killed him 
in front of the door.

Steal the orderly's clothes.

Make sure you're wearing the orderly's uniform when you walk through the 
otherwise the other orderly won't unlock the gate for you.  It isn't 
to kill the second orderly, but you'll receive no punishment if you do.  
a jerk anyway.

Proceed past the second orderly and you'll be treated to a cutscene.

|***HONG KONG***|

The Hong Kong missions will ultimately give you a thorough introduction into
the intricacies of being a bonified Hitman.  These missions are stealthy and
don't require much weaponry to complete (at least at the purchasing stage).
They seem to take place over a few days or weeks as you inevitably turn the
Triad world upside down.  Have fun... it only gets harder from here.

5.1 Kowloon Triads in Gang War

Mission Objectives
    - Eliminate Red Dragon Negotiator

Recommended Equipment
    - Blaser Jugowaffen R93 Sniper
        * You don't need anything other than the rifle.  Save your money and
          uncheck everything.  Do the mission right and you'll be glad you
          didn't waste the funds.

The first inhibition people will probably have is that they have to avoid
everyone.  Throw that thinking out the window.  If nobody has any reason to
attack you, they won't.  For all they know, you're just a guy carrying a
brief case.  You can walk right up to the guards if you want to.

When you first start out, you'll be facing a row of buildings, their alleys
fenced off.  Turn down the road and follow the street until you see an empty
'lot' with a dumpster in it.  It should be the first alley you can walk 

When you come out of the alley, keep going straight, following the street.

There are three places you can set up your perch.  You'll pass each one as
you continue down the street.  On your first open left, you'll see a
construction elevator leading up to the roof of the building.  There are
two more just like it.  The first one won't give you a good shot if you've
never played this mission before, so let's take the second one (on the north
side of the map).

On the ride up, give yourself some room to put together your rifle so that
when you leave the elevator, the case will remain inside it instead of 
out on the roof.

Head out of the elevator and walk along the edge overlooking the park.  You
should be able to see a bell or sculpture that looks like a big bell.

Wait for the negotiators to arrive.

When the negotiators meet at the structure, click fire once to enter sniper
mode if you haven't already.  Zoom in as needed and line up your shot.  Not 
worry, though, take your time.  They're not going anywhere.

>From this vantage point, you should see only the head of the Red Dragon
Negotiator.  From the first or third perch, you should be able to see both
of them standing there.  If this is the case, make sure you don't shoot the
blue negotiator.

    * If you choose the first perch, the blue negotiator will be in front
      of you.  Make sure you position yourself so you can get a good
      angle on the red negotiator without popping the blue guy.

Once you have your shot lined up, take out the red negotiator and ONLY the
red negotiator.  Shoot anyone else and you fail the mission.  As soon as the
shot's taken, don't even wait for him to go down.  You won't get a second
chance anyway because he'll head for the hills.  Get out of sniper mode and
run to the elevator, putting your gun back in its case on the ride down.

    * If you dawdle on the rooftop too long, a helicopter will fly by with a
      not-so-friendly guard balancing a not-so-friendly gun on his knee and 
      will take only a few shots to take you down.

    * If you don't put your gun back in your case, it's possible that a 
      near the park will see you with it and will begin firing at you.

Once you've made it back down to ground level (hopefully without the 
pegging your description on the rooftop), run down a few alleys and make 
way back to your car where you started.  Once you get there, you're done the
mission.  It only gets harder from here.

5.2 Ambush at the Wang Fou Restaurant

Mission Objectives
    - Eliminate Blue Lotus Emissary
    - Eliminate All Blue Lotus Triad Members

Recommended Equipment
    - You MUST have the car bomb, otherwise you'll be hard-pressed for
    - Oyabun knife or piano wire.
        * If you think you'll need it, you can also bring along a silenced
          Beretta 92. just in case.  I've gone through this mission a few
          times and I've found that as long as you get your timing right,
          you'll never need to draw a gun.

This map is pretty small, and the mission is pretty short, although it
provides a good introduction into the usefulness of changing clothes.
The thing that might throw you off guard is the mission goal to eliminate
all the Blue Lotus Triad members.  If you turn to the right before you
move anywhere, you'll see some guards standing around on the street corner.
THESE are the guys you need to kill, but leave them alone for now.

Head towards the restaurant either through the alleys or by following the
road.  Whatever you do, don't enter the restaurant.  For some reason, they
get all angry and start firing on you, so stay on the sidewalk.  There's no
reason to go into the restaurant anyway.

    * Entering the restaurant causes everyone to start shooting you.
      It doesn't make much sense, but then again, you're a killer, not
      a philosopher.

When you get there, you should see two garbage cans against a... well, a
rail of some sort.  I think it's a bike rack or something.  Stay near it, 
don't go too far.

Eventually, either before or after you get there, the limo will pull up.  If
you're feeling especially rowdy, you can hit escape to skip the cutscene and
try shooting everyone up right away.  Chances are, you'll die.  Don't say
I didn't warn you.

Soon after everyone's inside the building, the limo driver will walk around
to your side of the street and down into an alley for some privacy.  Too 
He's not going to get any.  Follow him at a close distance until he turns
the corner towards the grate.  No matter how tempting it is to kill him 
off the bat, it would be much wiser to wait.

At about the same time the driver begins to relieve himself on the wall, a
civilian will walk onto the scene.  Position yourself behind the driver,
but WAIT for the civilian to pass by and go along his merry way.  As soon as
you're clear, quickly take out the guard silently (SNEAK) either with the
wire or the knife and drag his body over the open grate, letting it slip 
into the sewers.  Jump down after it and steal his uniform (you can do it
before you drop him, but you risk the chance of being discovered) and then
make your way to the parked limo.  REMEMBER TO PUT AWAY YOUR WEAPON!

Make your way to the driver's side of the car (it's on the left, even though
you're in Hong Kong.  Must've slipped their minds).  If the guard is there,
you might want to wait for him to move to the other side.  If he's already
on the passenger side, then click on the front door and plant the bomb.  It
-is- necessary to remove the bomb from your pocket first.  (Previous
versions of this document reported the opposite.  My apologies.)

After all's said and done, head back toward your car, and if you're feeling
like it, you can stop off in the sewer to get your clothes back (but you
don't need to).

Now play the waiting game and face the guys standing on the corner.  I'm
not sure what happens if you walk up to them with the detonator drawn, so
if you're not feeling bold, stay behind the wall near your car and wait
for the limo to drive by.  Draw the detonator in the meantime.

A word of caution, there is a delay between the click of the remote and the
detonation of the bomb, so you'll need to hit the trigger about half a 
before the limo makes its turn between the four guards on the corner.

If you've timed it right, you've killed the emissary, all the triad members
in the car, and all the triad members on the street in the single explosion.
Turn around and walk to your car and you'll be handed a success.

5.3 The Massacre at Cheng Chau Fish Restaurant

Mission Objectives
    - Eliminate the Red Dragon Negotiator
    - Hide the Body of the Red Dragon Negotiator
    - Eliminate Chief of Police
    - Place a Red Dragon Amulet Inside the Restaurant

Recommended Equipment
    - Fibre Wire/Oyabun Knife
    - Silenced Beretta 92. (silenced)
        * A weird thing about this mission is bringing along the UZI.
          At a certain point in the mission, you will be required to
          surrender all your weapons to a guard; however, for some reason
          he doesn't take your UZI.  The following mission layout is based
          on not purchasing an UZI, but feel free to do so.

This is a very entertaining mission, straight out of the Godfather.  As you
know by reading the briefing, you've got to make a kill in a restaurant (and
just as a reminder, the bartender carries a powerful gun), but you've also
got to make it look like the Red Dragons did it.  Here's how.

This map is small compared to the one coming up, so enjoy it while you can.
This is a semi-timed mission in that you have to replace the Red Dragon
negotiator with yourself before he makes it to the restaurant for the big
pow wow.  The mission begins before anyone has arrived on the scene.  The
man you're after will arrive from the north-east corner of the map.  
else will be at the restaurant when they need to be.

    * On the west side of the map is an alleyway that contains an R93 
      Nobody knows why it's there (complete with two ammo clips, mind you),
      but you won't need it.  This mission is stealthy, and the rifle is 
      Resist the temptation and leave it alone.

First off, get to the restaurant and talk to the bartender.  Don't worry 
anyone attacking you for the moment so long as you don't have any weapons
drawn.  He'll give you a key to the bathroom.

    * You'd think you could just wait in the bathroom and kick down the door
      in a surprise attack, shooting everyone before they even know what hit
      them, but the Chief didn't rise in rank by being stupid.  If you're in
      the bathroom after everyone's entered the restaurant, the Chief will
      come and kick you out.  You could, of course, just kill him then, but
      then the Red Dragon negotiator will take off, thus causing you to fail
      the mission.

Enter the wonderful bathroom (small restaurant, ain't it?) and close the 
behind you.  Draw your Beretta and then drop it (F on the WASD setup).  This
is done because you're a crafty killer who knows how to get things done.

Head back out of the restaurant and run to the north-east corner of the map.
By now, you should have seen an information display saying that the targets
have arrived on the map.  In the distance, where you can't walk, you should
see the Red Dragon negotiator approaching.  Now's a good time to check the
map to see the location of the nearby sewer (on the north end of the map
seeing as that's where you want to ditch him after the kill.

When he turns the corner, follow him closely, but don't make your kill until
he's near the sewer.  As long as you are walking, and as long as you are
quick, you won't need to enter sneak mode to get this kill.  Ready your wire

or knife and use it immediately.  Remember, do not draw you're weapon until
the very last second, otherwise all your efforts are for nothing.  Steal his
clothes before or after you drag his body into the sewer, but remember that
you don't have a lot of time to dawdle.  Remember to take the amulet as

    * Killing the Red Dragon right after he turns the corner means you'll
      be discovered.  There are a few cops patrolling the outer areas of
      the map and one comes from the west soon after you make the kill.  If
      you're too far away from the sewer, your butt is toast.

    * Hiding the body in the corner of the map is no good either.  Either a
      cop or civilian will see it and then report it to the Chief.  That's
      not very professional of you, now is it?

If you're in the sewer, head on up once you've got the clothes and amulet.

Put your weapon away and stroll casually back to the restaurant.  By now,
both the Blue Lotus negotiator and the Chief of Police should be sitting in
the restaurant, awaiting your arrival.  Head in the front door and whatever
weapons you may be carrying will be removed from you (except for the UZI, if
you've brought it along).

Here's where your thinking-ahead will come into play.  Instead of talking to
the Chief, head into the bathroom and pick up your gun.

    * If you stand around too long, the Chief will stand up and attempt to
      talk to you.  At that point, he's discovered who you are and now every
      cop on the map will be looking for you.  Furthermore, you'll be 
      a weapon to defend yourself.

There are two ways to ensure that you pick the Chief off before he knows
what's going on.  With the gun drawn, you can just open the door and walk 
firing away, but be sure the Chief is dead before you kill anyone else.
If, on the other hand, you're not quite confident in your quick-aiming,
holster the weapon (R in WASD) and walk up to the door.  Open it and line
up your shot with the white circle.  Wait for the door to close and then
draw your gun.  Open it again without moving your crosshairs and the shot 
be taken right away.

    * An alternate route is instead of even bothering to enter the front 
      (or even planting a gun, for that matter), you can simply hang around
      outside after you get the bathroom key and wait for everyone to 
      You -must- kill the Red Dragon, though, seeing as his death and the
      stashing of his body are two objectives for the mission.  Anyways,
      if you haven't noticed already, you can enter as well as exit the
      restaurant through the bathroom window (just make sure nobody sees 
      So, once everyone's sitting down for their chat, hop in the window
      fully armed and burst through the door.  Fun, ain't it?

Once the Chief is down, the Blue Lotus member will take off like a sissy and
the bartender will be quite cheesed.  The bartender is your priority.  If 
Blue negotiator gets away, don't worry about it.  He's not in the mission
goals.  Take out the bartender and quickly ready up the Red Dragon amulet.
There's no actual action to plant it in the restaurant, so just hit the drop

    * You can also safely drop the amulet before you go get your gun.  I'm
      surprised I didn't think of it myself.  Thanks, Erik.

Now's the time to make your escape.  The best course of action is to head
back into the bathroom and leave through the window.  Do this as quickly
as you can because the cops will follow you in there.  The good thing about
this is that you've led quite a few of them into the bathroom and that means
less of them will be on the street trying to pick you off.

    * You can also shoot out one of the windows and attempt to sprint
      back to your car that way (so you don't have to bother opening the
      restaurant door).

    *WARNING* Whatever you do, do NOT shoot any cops.  The only cop you're
              allowed to kill is the Chief.  Kill any more and it's $5000
              off of your income EACH, not to mention that if you kill too
              many, the Agency gives you a fail and you have to do it all 

Once you're on the road, run back to your car, taking any route you have to
to avoid the bullets that are bound to be fired at you.  DO NOT STOP to
fight back.  Just head back to your car and you'll get a success.

        * This is a long mission if you don't know exactly what to do right
          away, so you may want to bring an UZI or the non-silenced Beretta
          as an extra weapon if you're adamant against restarting.  Timing 
          everything in this map, so a slip could mean a firefight.  Use 
          own discretion: Are you a Hitman or a Gunman?

At first, the sheer size of this mission's map is intimidating, and 
so, because if you don't know where you're going, you'll be spending a LOT 
time wandering aimlessly.  I recommend a walk-around before you attempt
anything vital to your plan, but I'll do my best to tell you where to go.
At least study the map.

If at any time a body is discovered, Lee Hong will lock the front door to
his HQ.  You do not need to restart the mission if this happens.  This
walkthrough will completely avoid the front door so not to worry.

You'll first start off outside the Wang Fou Restaurant from the second 
There is nothing to do out here other than reminisce about missions past.  
and that R93 I mentioned in the alleyway?  That's gone now.

Head on into the restaurant.  To the left is a stairway leading up to two
doors, one on the right, and a higher one on the left.  That goes to the VIP
Area.  To the right is a doorway with two (or three) guards in front of it
with no stairway.  This leads to what I'll be referring to as the BROTHEL 
This area is not labeled on the map, so if I refer to it, remember what I 

If you walk around the divider, you'll see a door up ahead with the word 
above it in fake Kanji.  Just before that should be a door on the right with
a single guard in front of it.  That door on the right leads to a store 
perfect for stashing a body.  How convenient.

Walk behind that guard (easier to approach from HIS right) and open the door
to the store room.  Don't walk too far in.  Instead, sit yourself right on 
door's threshold and turn around.  This way, the door doesn't close on you,
saving you a bit of time in the very near future.  Enter sneak mode and 
to make a kill.  There is a third guard near the entrance to the Brothel 
that patrols between the bar and the Brothel door.  Make sure she passes by
either way before you pull out your knife and cut the guard.  Since you're
standing in the doorway, simply drag him into the store room and stick him 
a corner.  You won't have time to steal his clothes right away, so make sure
you stash him first.  Once he's in there, hidden from the unknowing guards,
feel free to relieve him of his suit and his Beretta.

Put your weapons away and leave the store room, heading for the bar.  Make
note of the door just right of the bar.  This leads to the Restaurant Area
marked on the map, where the Herbal Shop (not labeled) makes its connection.
More on that later.

Talk to the bartender and he'll recommend you go upstairs for a little
'action'.  Of course, you won't be allowed into the Brothel Area without the
flyer, which the bartender conveniently leaves on the bar.

    * If you want to explore some more dialogue, talk to one of the waiters
      first and he'll recommend you to the bartender.  Talk to the bartender
      a second time, and he'll let you know of another foreigner locked in 
      basement for trying to crack one of Hong's many safes.

Pick up the flyer and return to the lobby, taking the door without the 
to the Brothel Area.  Follow the long ramp down after climbing the short 
up.  Turning to the right reveals another restaurant area (which you can see
through one of the windows at the top of the ramp), as well as a set of
double doors guarded by a fat man.  Approach this door and he'll let you in
(funny, he has the same voice as the guy out in the lobby!  How strange...).
Climb up the steps and you'll be in the Brothel (labeled on the map).

At the top of the stairs, you'll see an old lady and a younger lady in 
Talk to the old lady and she'll offer you her best girl (how nice, 
that the girl standing next to her is the ONLY girl in the brothel).  Once
Hitman puts the woman's fee on his tab at the bar, the young woman will head
through the door behind her.  Follow her to her room (annoying since you 
faster than her) and when you get the chance, talk to her.  She'll tell you
that she doesn't belong there and wants your help.  You have no choice, but
to agree.  Besides, she knows the combination to Hong's safe.

So, once the dialogue's over, she'll begin to... trot, I guess, out of the
room to her shortcut over the rooftops.  Follow her, but make sure you don't
run too far ahead of her or fall back too far behind her (annoying because
you walk slower than her, but run faster than she trots).  She'll lead you
a short way outside and around a fence to a ladder.  When she gets there,
she'll wait for you to climb up first.  Watch the cutscene.

    * If you're feeling like a big butthead, you can also shoot Ling and
      just take the combo from her.  Of course, you'll probably be charged 
      an unnecessary kill, so be wary.

When you regain control, you should be behind a dumpster, facing the 
guard.  Never mind him.  So long as you're still in the guard's uniform, 
leave you alone.  Notice how he's a Red Dragon, too.  Anyways, spin around 
the right and you'll see your lovely damsel in distress making her way to 
gate.  Follow her there and she'll wait for you to talk to her.  Watch the
cutscene (gotta love the shiver).  Don't worry if the guard comes up to you
after she's gone.  He doesn't do anything.

That's one objective off the list.  Now to free the captured agent.

Head back the way you came.  You won't be able to climb back up the ladder, 
there's no need to anyway.  You should see a set of stairs leading up to
