Hitman 3 Activate manual override procedure | How to acquire admin privileges

The first mission in Hitman 3, On Top of the World, tasks players with assassinating two targets. The How the Mighty Fall Mission Story requires players to access a terminal as part of the process. When accessing the terminal, players might find they trip the alarm. To find the right server to pull to activate the manual override procedure, players need to acquire admin privileges, which is the one thing Gray doesn’t explain.

Most of How the Mighty Fall in Hitman 3 is straightforward. Gray makes the path pretty clear up until the server room. However, he doesn’t explain how players are supposed to tell which server to pull to activate the manual override procedure or how to acquire admin privileges.

Getting to the server room is surprisingly easy. Once players “take the scenic route,” they’ll find themselves in a corridor. More than likely, players will find they’re trespassing at this point unless they’re disguised themselves as a janitor or penthouse guard, but we’ll’ll fix that momentarily.

The server room is the last door on the left. The only hazard here is the penthouse guard patrolling, but he’s easy to avoid. Inside the server, room is a janitor. If players need a disguise change, they can knock him out and hide him in the nearby locker with zero risks.

Inside the server room, Gray will tell players that they need to pull a server to activate the manual override procedure. Unfortunately, he doesn’t have any helpful input on how to choose the right one. If players choose the wrong server, an alarm will be triggered, and security will be dispatched to investigate.

To find the right server, players need to get a keycard. Fortunately, the holder of this card is nearby.

Before players pull a server, they need to find a keycard that will help them figure out the correct choice. Right now is an excellent time to get a penthouse guard disguise. The guard in the corridor players passed through to get to the server room is ripe for the picking, and can be stowed in the same locker we used to stash the janitor.

Once players have their new disguise, they should exit the server room through the opposite door they used to enter it. In this corridor, players will find two janitors. Let the female janitor finish her phone call and walk towards the end of the corridor and turn left. The female janitor will start mopping the floor, which allows players to beam the male janitor in the head with a thrown hammer, wrench, or other blunt object. Quickly stash him in the nearby locker and grab the Server Room Keycard he drops.

Now, when players return to the server room, a podium will rise out of the floor next to the terminal. Players can swipe the card on it, which will highlight the correct server to pull to activate the manual override. To acquire admin privileges, players need to pull the server that has yellow text streaming on the monitor above it (make sure to save beforehand just in case).

Once the right server is pulled, players can access the terminal and use it to re-arrange Ingram and Stuyvesant’s meetings. Once this is done, players can make their way up to the penthouse and wait for the two targets to come to the lounge. After they’re there, just hit the switch, which will lock down the room, and wait for Gray to finish speaking. Once he gives the word, players can execute their first two assassinations in Hitman 3.
