We’re back with yet another lovely Hitman related article here at Pixel Judge, oh… look, another Elusive Target Event (… yay). These things are like cockroaches, they come out of nowhere and never seem to stop coming, realistically, how far will these go? 50? 100?.

This time around ol’ baldy McShiny-shooty-poison-garrote-stabby-explody-man, aka Agent 47, is challenged with not one, not two, but three… oh wait, yea… two objectives to complete in order to finish the job at hand (it states two, but last time I checked, 1(kill)+1(kill)+1(viral req.) = 3)

For the 21st Elusive Target, both the player and Agent 47 will have to eliminate both Dr. Pavel Frydel and his fellow unethical transplant surgeon partner, Dr. Akane Akenawa. This isn’t your typical “pew-pew and win” type scenario, players must assassinate both targets in the exact same manner via a lethal viral infection, and anything else will result in giant F on your report card.

For the next 168 hours, starting today and ending Friday, March 3rd 13:00 GMT / 14:00 CET, come join Agent 47 as he takes a trip to Hokkaido, Japan (from Episode 6) to dish out a hot steamy bowl of revenge for a grieving billionaire father, who lost his son thanks to these ‘Surgeons’.

The clock starts…NOW! Times a ticking Agents, good luck!

  • 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
  • Plan accordingly before you engage your target
  • 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
