HITMAN’s “Elusive Target” Results and More

Posted on 24 May 2016 by

Before we get into the juicy details of HITMAN’s newest Elusive Target (The Congressman), let’s explore the results from IO Interactive’s first Elusive Target, Sergei “The Forger” Larin. Over the 48 hour weekend event, it seems only 53% of players were able to successfully assassinate the target, 9.9% of which were completed silently without leaving a trace. It seems most players had a difficult time successfully eliminating the target, while others have come up with some hilariously ingenious methods of taking care of business.

The recent addition of a new Escalation Contract (The Scorpio Directive) brings two new targets, Edmondo Giordano and Jack Please. Players will be tasked with eliminating the targets over five levels on the Sapienza map, which is further complicated by the addition of the laser tripwire trap that Agent 47 must disarm or navigate around before he can proceed.

Lastly, coming this Friday on May 27th, HITMAN’s second limited time Elusive Target event will take place on the sunny Sapienza chapter. Players will once again have only one shot with limited time and little intel to track down “The Congressman” and deal with him accordingly.

HITMAN will also be attending this year’s E3, bringing with it new details on future episodes, community events and a playable demo of Episode Three: Marrakesh. For more information on recent events and what’s to come, please check out the press release and HITMAN blog posts.


Official Press Release

Following the success of the first Elusive Target, the next unsuspecting Elusive Target is getting ready to meet his fate next Friday 27th May.

Players will need to locate the elusive “Congressman” on a visit to sunny Sapienza*. Can more than 53% of players succeed this time? How many will be Silent Assassins? Only time will tell.

Elusive Targets are specially crafted, unique targets which are available in game for a limited time only. Together with Escalation Contracts and Featured Contracts, they form part of the regular weekly live content available in HITMAN in-between new episodes.

Five completed Elusive Targets will unlock the Hitman: Absolution suit in game for players, ten will unlock the Hitman: Blood Money suit and additional completions will unlock more suit variations.

Elusive Targets come with particular rules:
·         An Elusive Target is a once in a lifetime experience
·         They are available for a limited time only in game
·         Intel on the target will be limited
·         They will not appear in instinct mode, or the mini map and their locations will not be revealed to you – you’ll have to go and find them
·         Your target can only die once
·         If you die during the mission, that’s it
·         When the time runs out, they are gone for good
·         If you fail, there are no second chances

HITMAN is available on the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, and Windows PC.

(* This Elusive Target is only available for a limited period of time and only to players that own the Sapienza location. To be clear, the Sapienza location is not included in the Intro Pack. If you do not own the Sapienza location already, but wish to experience this Elusive Target, you should either unlock all locations by purchasing the Upgrade Pack or purchase the Sapienza location separately. )
