HITMAN’s 14th Elusive Target Event

Posted on 18 Nov 2016 by

Square Enix is at it again, only weeks after the launch of the Hitman finale, Episode 6: Hakkaido. Today we are greeted to the latest Elusive Target challenge, for those keeping count; this would mark the fourteenth special event.

Starting at 14:00 CET / 05:00 PT, taking place during the events of Episode 1: Paris. Agents will have 168 hours to successfully scope out their surroundings; locate any clues in order to bring yourself one step closer to the target in the latest mission “The Chef”. Per usual, players will have only one shot at finding their target, one Gabriel Santos, eliminate him and then escape unnoticed in order to chalk this up as a success.

Also coming with today’s event will be the addition of several new suits to unlock and add to your ever growing repertoire of fine suits and accessories, along with a couple adjustments to the Elusive Target reward system. Starting from the fourteenth target event and on wards, players will have more opportunities in collecting reward points to unlock Agent 47’s unique exclusive suits. Take a peek at the below picture for more details on how to unlock and improve your expanding wardrobe. As always agents, good luck and have fun!


Official Press Release

The Chef is the next Elusive Target to arrive in HITMAN, and the first Elusive Target that offers up some new unlockable suits.

At 14:00 CET / 05:00 PT on Friday 18th November, we’ll update the Elusive Target tile on the Featured Hub in-game and the contract will be live. Elusive Target #14 will be in Paris for 7 days (168 hours) and there won’t be any second chances. Remember that an Elusive Target cannot be restarted once any targets have been eliminated or any objectives have been completed.

Elusive Target 14 has one objective: Eliminate Gabriel Santos

Elusive Target Rewards 

For completing Elusive Targets, we have some very unique rewards that can be earned. Remember that you need to achieve all objectives and exit the mission to ‘complete’ the Elusive Target.
We want to make sure that the suit rewards you’ll earn through Elusive Targets are prestigious, and that they can be unlocked at a faster rate. Starting with ET 14, we have made adjustments to how players unlock future Elusive Target suit rewards.

It’s important to note that these adjustments won’t affect anything you’ve already unlocked or your progress to unlocking the three accumulative suits (HMA, Blood Money and Signature Suit) that have been the three rewards available so far.
It’s equally important to note that the new rewards system comes into effect starting with ET 14, meaning that you cannot retroactively unlock suits based on previous ET’s. If you want that Winter Suit, you’ll need to complete 5 ET’s with a Silent Assassin rating, starting from ET 14.

If you’ve not completed any Elusive Targets at all, and ET 14 is the first one that you attempt, you will still be able to unlock all of the rewards in the image above. However, if you wait too long and miss/fail too many Elusive Targets, you won’t be able to unlock all of the rewards.
