Introduction

In this game, you play as Agent 47, a professional assassin. You have many ways to take out your enemies and main targets. This game requires you play on at least Hard mode to gain a difficulty related achievement. There are challenges, collectibles, and an online mode which you must complete to gain all achievements. An online pass is required by some regions (though it is free in North America). So far the rating is a 6/10 based on the game being pretty difficult on Hard alone. Without any kind of guide, you can die multiple times not realizing there was an easy way (like just avoiding certain areas in general).

Step 1: Campaign

There are 20 levels to complete for this game. Difficulty matters, so play it on Hard mode if you would like to get the achievement out of the way. Replaying missions on Hard also works for the achievement. This gives you some flexibility if you want to come back to a mission later if it's difficult. You can play any way you see fit to accomplish your goals. Remember that you cannot get any of the achievements in the prologue aside from completing it. You must do all achievements on the following missions. A great place to tackle a lot of the achievements is Mission 2: The King of Chinatown. It is a one area type of mission and you can get a lot of the achievements quickly including the Silent Assassin achievement.

Step 2: Contracts Mode

This is the game's online mode. You do not fight against other players, but set up contracts for them to kill. The game uses the same levels as the campaign but you can pick any AI in the level as a target. You can choose up to 3. A contract is created when a player chooses an AI as a target and kills them in whatever way they see fit. The other player whom is playing the contract must mimic the assassination. There are a few achievements related to this mode, so look through the guide to see what you need.

Note: People have been confirming they used alternate or silver accounts to gain achievements based on Contracts Mode.

Step 3: Misson Replays

If you missed anything or need to complete challenges, collectibles, etc, then you can now do so on Medium difficulty. You only need 100 challenges, so only pick the ones that are easy. Don't bother going for ones such as Suit Only or ones requiring you never to get detected. They take up a lot of time and effort.

Conclusion

This game is pretty straightforward with it's achievements. With mission select, you will be able to retry what you may have missed. The game's saving feature is nice so that once you complete a challenge for example, you may quit out and move on to the next (instead of completing the rest of the level). The game is forgiving in the fact it doesn't make you do all challenges, but under half of them. The games achievements are extremely easy, but the difficulty of the story on Hard difficulty can prove frustrating for some.

Credits: Cinderkin for an early look into the achievements for this game, and for providing me with the information I needed to start this guide. He has revealed all secret achievements to me as well.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/+C7lJQ==.jpgGrand Master 150 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
You completed 100 challenges

Challenges are within every level. There are a total of 278 that are available. There are level specific challenges, and challenges that are universal for each mission. If you are replaying a level, you may quit out or restart the checkpoint and the challenge would have saved.

Note: Cannot be obtained on easy difficulty.

For specific information on the challenges which help you complete them, visit the below thread.

Challenges Guide


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/+g-skA==.jpgReach for the Stars 50 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
You completed 50 challenges

See "Grand Master" achievement description.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/++8UAw==.jpgThe Russian Hare 20 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
You performed 47 headshots using a sniper rifle

You can slow down time and get headshots easily by holding :rtbut: lightly, then fully pulling it when you have a clear shot. There are a few levels with the sniper rifle so you can just keep playing those sections until you run out of ammo or die. The best level to attempt this is the last level called Absolution. The very start of the level arms you with a sniper rifle that has a silencer. You can pick off multiple enemies and just reload your checkpoint.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/-k3-+g==.jpgA Taste for the Game 20 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
You completed 10 challenges

See "Grand Master" achievement description.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/5-wotoU=.jpgAbsolution 50 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
You completed Hitman: Absolution™ as a professional

There are 5 total difficulties to choose from:
  • Easy
  • Normal
  • Hard
  • Expert
  • Purist
Complete each mission on Hard or higher without changing the difficulty. Pick one of those difficulties and stick with it until you have the achievement. All three are considered "professional". You have no player activated checkpoints and enemies have better than average reaction times. Also your instinct won't restore on it's own.

You always have the option to replay missions on easier settings. The game always asks you what difficulty you want to play the missions on. If you play the entire game on Normal, you can just replay missions on Hard to gain the achievement. You do not have to restart the entire game. Replaying missions will work.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/5-8H6Sk=.jpgJack of All Trades 30 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
You collected all 20 play styles

There are a total of 20 different play styles that you earn. They can be viewed in the Unlocks section from the main menu. There is a hidden amount you must complete for each, so just keep doing the task to gain them. A lot of them can be done on civilians in crowded areas such as Chinatown, so don't make them harder than they have to be. They unlock and show you a notification when you meet the requirements while in the mission.

Needle Pumper: Stealth Kill with Syringes 5 times. You can technically be spotted and hide somewhere, then stealth kill people as they are hunting you. There is a syringe in the mission "Rosewood" right by the first fuse you must collect as part of an obejective.
Undertaker: Hide 5 bodies. As you kill enemies, just remember to hide them.
Piano Man: Kill 5 people with the garrot (your wire) via steath.
Reaper Man: Use Point Shooting to kill 8 enemies. This seems tough at first but it's not. Civilians count and shotguns can actually be used for Point Shooting. In Chinatown this works very well if you have a shotgun and full instinct.
Sandman: Subdue 3 people. This should come naturally as you play.
Dynasty Warrior: Get 9 kills with Katana.
Dynamite Harry:
Get 5 kills with remote explosives.Extremely easy in Chinatown. In the first Chinatown you come across on the second level, there are explosives in an alley on the left near a yellow car (go up the stairs). Grab the remote detonator and throw the explosives into a crowd and detonate it.
Gunslinger: Get 15 kills with revolver.A revolver is any gun with a revolving barrel (the circular middle piece). Start up Birdie's Gift which starts you in a gun shop. The back wall has a Mustang Snub. Grab it and run around trying to find ammo for it (stock it at 60). Now Kill some people and run up the stairs past the employee only swinging door. Hold off and kill people when they come up.
Bartender: Get 5 kills with bottles.Easiest to do on the mission Welcome To Hope. The area you start in is a bar and has tons of bottles. Go into the bathroom and flip the lever to cause a bar fight. No go and grab bottles attack people with them.
Champion: 5 hand based combat kills. An extremely easy way to get this is to walk into a crowded location like Chinatown and just keep pressing :xbut: as you move around, killing everyone with your hands.
Beserker: Get 5 kills with fire axe.
Brutus:
5 stealth kills with knives.
Viking:
Get 5 kills with blunt weapon. A good spot is in Hunter and the Hunted. When you get to Chinatown, stick to your left until you get to stairs leading down. By a trash can you will find a sledgehammer. Go kill people in the crowds or police with it. Try to make sure it is swinging and hitting them, not choking them.
Tank: Take damage 20 times. Should come naturally.
Pitcher: Kill 5 people with thrown objects undetected (knife, axe, screwdriver, etc).A good area to get this is the last area of Rosewood. You start by a knife and there are 2 enemies to kill with it. Then the next area has 2 enemies and another knife. Then after that you can get your last.
Spook: Get 3 kills with silenced gun undetected.These must be stealth kills (as in pressing :xbut: while behind an enemy).
Jinx: Get 2 kills via accidents. Many levels have "accidents" waiting to happen. There are a few which will kill multiple people.
Maestro: Get 5 sniper rifle kills via headshots in a row.
Glass Cannon:
Get 3 shotgun kills while remaining undamaged.Works pretty well in crowds, as you can get 3 kills in one shot (crowds with lots of civilians).
Bank Robber: Use 3 human shields without killing them. This works best on civilians in a crowded area. Just grab the person using :abut: when prompted to use as a human shield. Now quickly press :xbut: to knock them out (so that they do not die from people shooting at you). Do so a few more times and you should see it unlock.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/5-zGGA8=.jpgIt's All in the Wrist 50 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
You successfully performed a lethal throw

This can be obtained in any mission beyond the prologue (cannot be obtained in Personal Contract mission). Pick up an axe or a knife (or anything that is a sharp throwing weapon). Hold :ltbut: and aim for the head of the enemy. As long as it's red, press :rtbut: to throw it. If successful, the object will kill the enemy. The earliest you can get this is in Mission 2: The King of Chinatown. There are knives near the chefs. You can pick one up and use it to gain the achievement, then reload if you wish.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/5-lk8-Y=.jpgInformation is Power 30 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
You collected all evidence

There are 45 pieces of evidence to collect through the missions. There is an in-game tracker that shows which evidence you have collected and on which levels. In the challenges screen during levels, you can see what section of the level has evidence and if you have obtained it or not. You can also view this from the main menu in the challenges section.

Visit this thread here for a guide to obtain them all. It's both written and has a video to help.

Evidence Location Guide


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/5-iEC2U=.jpgThumbs Up 20 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
You liked a contract

Go into Contract Mode. Go into quickplay and choose any contract from the sets available. It's easiest to do a friend's challenge that they made extremely easy on purpose. After you complete the contract, you will see the "Like" feature. Press :ybut: to pull up a menu to like or dislike the contract. Choose the plus symbol to like it and gain the achievement. If you dislike it, you will not be able to ever like it and will need to play a different contract.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/5-qlAtA=.jpgDamage Control 20 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
You contained a situation gone bad

This can only be obtained after the first level. You must cause mischief/chaos within an area. Run around being careless, shooting people, not sneaking around, etc. Enemies will become hostile and attack you. Kill all enemies and once things are back to normal, the achievement unlocks. See One With the Shadows for similar achievement but hiding from everyone. This is best done with a low amount of enemies around.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/5-lfgUg=.jpgSet for Life 20 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
You earned 1 million contracts dollars

This is a total amount earned. If you wish you can boost this with a friend by making extremely easy contracts for one another to gain money quickly. You can also earn money on the tutorial. You cannot keep replaying the same contract to gain money. You can also play some through quickplay. Just remember, not everyone wants to make it easy on you. An easy contract is to play on Chinatown. As soon as you exit the doors, mark the 2 chefs. Use Point Shooting and exit to the door on the right. This can take under a minute to complete and earns you well over $100,000.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/5-i-eds=.jpgSelf-improvement 20 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
You bought an upgrade for a weapon

This game allows you to upgrade weapons by earning currency through contracts and completing missions. Use this money to buy an upgrade and unlock the achievement. Go into the "Unlocks" section, then to "Safehouse". Choose "Weapons". Move to Silverballer and you should see a money sign on the third icon in upgrade slots. Select upgrade with :abut: to buy it, and the achievement will unlock.

You completed the Creating Contracts Tutorial

At the start screen, highlight the Contracts mode and enter it. Scroll down to Tutorials and choose "Creating Contracts". Complete this tutorial for the achievement.

Have someone on your friend's list create a contract, and play it. You can use the below thread to find people to help with this if no one on your list is playing the game. Go into quickplay and select "from friends". The achievement unlocks right away, you don't even have to play it if you don't need the money.

You participated in a contract competition

In Contract Mode, there are competitions you can play (multiple people invited). Go to the Compete menu and look at your challenges you have been invited to. If you need someone to create and invite you to these, please visit the achievement trading thread below.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/5--afr8=.jpgOne With the Shadows 20 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
You escaped the attention of an enemy

This can only be obtained after the first level. You must cause mischief/chaos within an area. Run around being careless, shooting people, not sneaking around, etc. Enemies will become hostile and attack you. Hide from the enemies and once things are back to normal in a calm "Clear" state, the achievement will unlock (see Damage Control for similar achievement but killing everyone).

A very easy spot for this is Mission 3: Terminus. Go to the left of the hotel doors and down the ladder. There are only 2 people down there. Kill them openly and then hide until you get the achievement.

Note: It's claimed you must get into a disguise for it to unlock the achievement.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/5-46hiw=.jpgSilent Assassin 20 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
You achieved Silent Assassin

Silent Assassin is a a ranking at the end of a level. The very first mission you can get this is Mission 2: The King of Chinatown (since you can't get it in the prologue). The first time you can get this is in Mission 2: The King of Chinatown. To the right of the area where the target is, there is a area with chefs and they are selling food. Find the chef with the red apron (a female). Behind her is an odd looking dish with poisonous fish. After she turns her back, grab it. Now go North to where there is 2 chefs and a police guard. On the right, sneak in and find the disguise near the garbage. Walk to the middle area where the target has likely left. Poison his coffee and walk away. After he goes back and drinks the coffee, you are free to exit the level. You will also get the "Inconspicuous" achievement as well as "Whoops" if you had not already obtained it.



http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/5-0V2YA=.jpgInconspicuous 20 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
You remained undetected throughout a checkpoint

This can be done on any mission except the prologue (Mission 1: A Personal Contract). There are different "areas" in the missions which act as main checkpoints. Go through an entire area without ever being spotted and this achievement will unlock upon the next checkpoint or completing the level (if there was none after). The first time you can get this is in Mission 2: The King of Chinatown. To the right of the area where the target is, there is a area with chefs and they are selling food. Find the chef with the red apron (a female). Behind her is an odd looking dish with poisonous fish. After she turns her back, grab it. Now go North to where there is 2 chefs and a police guard. On the right, sneak in and find the disguise near the garbage. Walk to the middle area where the target has likely left. Poison his coffee and walk away. After he goes back and drinks the coffee, you are free to exit the level. You will also get the "Silent Assassin" achievement.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/5-800DU=.jpgWhoops 20 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
You made a kill look like an accident

This cannot be done in the prologue (Mission 1: Personal Contract). Any other mission is fine. There is usually a challenge base don making a death look like an accident. You can get this in Mission 2: The King of Chinatown pretty easily. You have different ways to poison the enemy that will unlock the achievement. You can also disguise yourself as a chef near the back of the area. The target will eventually show up and eat some food. You should notice an opening in the ground, and the target notices this as well. He looks down it and you can push him to give him a closer look. This is one of the earliest spots to get the achievement but not the only one. There are several. You may just reload your checkpoint if you want to play the level a different way. Please see the "Silent Assassin" achievement for a video where you don't get caught .



http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/5-7UKKY=.jpgOne of the Guys 20 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
You blended in and fooled someone

This can be completed on Mission 2 and beyond. An easy place to get this is on Mission 2: The King of Chinatown. Walk into the crowded area where the main target is. Walk to a stand with food on it (there is a sushi plate). Grab the menu and you will look at it and blend in. Since there are police and the main target around, the achievement should automatically unlock.

Can be completed on Mission 2 and beyond. You must have instinct to use point shooting.. Hold :rbbut: and press :xbut:. Aim for 3 headshots on the enemies, holding :ltbut: to aim and :rtbut: to tag. Press :xbut: again to kill all 3. If you want this quickly, when you start Mission 2: The King of Chinatown, head to the central area where the target is. There are 3 policemen. You may execute them all with point and shoot to gain the achievement, and then just reload your checkpoint.



http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/5-qWO8w=.jpgUnder Wraps 20 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
You hid a body

Cannot be done in the prologue (Mission 1: Personal Contract). There are areas that have places you can drop bodies in or even hide there yourself within the levels. After you kill or knock out an enemy, drag their bodies holding :bbut:. Lead them to one of these containers, and choose to :ybut: as your option to dump their body.




http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/5-i3Mnk=.jpgSandman 20 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
You subdued a person

This achievement cannot be gained on the prologue mission "Personal Contract". This is a nonlethal way to take out an enemy. Have your bare hands equipped. Sneak up behind an enemy and press :xbut:. Press the :xbut: quickly as prompted, and the person will be knocked out. This can be done to enemies as well as civilians that you can disguise yourself as. You can do this on any difficulty. You can get this in Mission 2: The King of Chinatown quite easily.

You should also see a teddy bear on a chair. Grab it and hide behind the containers. Eventually the Patriot will notice his good luck charm is missing and will send his men to find it. After they are far enough away, drop the radio and play it. When the Patriot comes to investigate, take him out and use his disguise. You can now exit through the door you knock on at the start of the area. Walk through and straight to the ring where Sanchez is. Follow the prompts to take him out and gain the achievement.

Let me know if the red is too much. I will update with videos once I create them (though there isn't a lot of need for them). Also, once the achievement tiles for the secret achievements are loaded on the site, I will of course change them.

great guide as always.

can you just confirm something though for me, on the guide where you have this -
Step 3: Misson Replays

If you missed anything or need to complete challenges, collectibles, etc, then you can now do so on a lower difficulty.


what i want to know is on the grand master achievement you have put a note about the challenges not counting on easy, so what level should they be done on as the 2 mentioned above seem to contradict each other.

cheers.

I'll throw in that it needs to be done on Medium at minimum, thanks for noticing that.

You played a contract made by a friend

Have someone on your friend's list create a contract, and play it. You can use the below thread to find people to help with this if no one on your list is playing the game.


I can confirm you can get them all with a 2nd silver-account. That's how I obtained it. ;)

You liked a contract

This is an online based achievement. You can make any AI character a target within a level (same as campaign levels). Choose a level and pick up to 3 targets. Kill them however you want. This creates a contract for other people to try and mimic. For you to get the achievement, you must "like" a contract that someone else has made.

This you can get either with a friend, a 2nd silver-account or simply go to Hitman-Contracts, Quick-Play, Featured Contracts, pick one and after you have finished any it should show at the stats screen at bottom left :ybut: for "LIKE".

Hope this helps!

Tyger7 11-18-2012 01:24 PM

So you can get all Contract based achievements via silver account? Meaning you do not need online whatsoever?

I can confirm this for the following achievements: Contender, Partners in Crime, Competitive Spirit and Thumbs Up. Just checked it for you. ;)

I don't have the game before tomorrow, but i do have a question. Regarding the two for contract competition, this is obvious in the game?

Scotty 11-18-2012 03:37 PM

!!!POSSIBLE SPOILERS!!!





for the russian hare cheevo, to perform 47 headshots, you could keep replaying the mission 'end of the road' where you kill lenny. you get a sniper in the back of your car to kill him with. i only point this out because i think you need to complete the mission for the headshots to count and the mission is extremely short, even though you only get one kill per attempt.

this mission is also a good place to get 'its all in the wrist' if you're struggling to find a good place. there is a tomahawk stuck in a tree to the right of the direction that lenny is running, just sprint to it, turn around and throw it at him to kill him.

hope these are helpful for anyone.

it seems obvious, but i cant figure it out. i have created contracts and participated in them but not got the achievements, so i must be doing something wrong.

I did that in the "Birdie's gift" mission at the shooting range. Kill 'em all, get your Silverballers, exit out. Rinse and repeat three times, Achievement unlocked.

But yours is also fine, just takes a lil longer.

Mark any target for dead, and take them out however you like. Escape the area afterwards. You will be given the option of creating a competition, where you can invite friends if you like. Just click Continue to create the contract, and the achievement will unlock.

Once you return to the menu, go back to your contract competition, and choose to play it. You will then earn Contender.

your way is a lot better.:) i also thought you had to complete your current mission for the headshots to count, but apparently not, then.

Well I'm pretty sure you have to complete the mission. I always ended up with 18-19 headshots. Just to make it proper, pick up your Silverballers and end the mission.

But when it comes to unlock the achievement, it popped right after I did my 47th headshot in the middle of a badass shootout. :)

well, mine unlocked after i'd shot lenny in the head for like the 20th time, so maybe you dont have to finish the level then. you dont have to finish the level for challenges, ive quit/restarted checkpoint a lot doing these challenges and they all still count, so maybe its the same with headshots.

EDIT: also ive just found a little rubber duck just sat on a crate(the 'hitman' rubber duck, like my gamerpic:)). i didnt want to start a new thread for it as it probably means nothing, but i just think its pretty cool.

Nozza XBA 11-18-2012 07:00 PM

Here's some worth while info you can add to the 47 headshot achievement.

2 good missions you can get this one. One is the Gunshop area and the other is Factory Compound - Infiltrate Compound part. Here's how to do both but the 2nd is the best!

Take note that restarting checkpoints work!

Gunshop - When you have control of 47, find the power box at the back of the shop. Opposite side to the duck shooting game. Sabotage it then the guard behind the front desk will move.

When its clear, go behind the desk and through the door. Head up the stairs and into the room. Now exit the room via the open balcony door and drop down to the left. Follow the path around until you get into the trenches and can look down the shooting range. In this part is a Sniper Rifle.

Grab it, and climb the ladder and take cover. Now just shoot everyone in the head. Only issue is, if you restart the checkpoint, you have to do this all over again.

Compound - Once you've made it down the lift, you'll come to a path that you need to run up. Just outside of this is a guard and a sniper rifle with a silencer. Let the guard move and grab it. Now walk up the stairs to your right for a good advantage point.

From here, kill all the guards. You should get a good 12+ if not more. Guards on the bridge and just off it, some near the building at the back, 2 in the window of the building to the right, and then a fair few to the left near the lorry tanker. Once all are dead, restart and you'll be at the bottom of the hill.

For anyone still wondering when it unlocks. As soon as you get your 47th headshot With any sniper rifle it will unlock. You do not need to do it with one type nor do you need to complete the level.

I've beaten this game twice and both times I blew up wade with a bomb. Never did I see a shootout, so it's not automatic it depends on how you played the level.

With the way the guide mentions it you can get it within the first minute of level 2 without any problems. Guides are always about the fastest way to 1k. Your method is literally the last level.

Predni 11-20-2012 09:57 AM

hm ok i think this because at the End of the Level in this Boiler Room, i go simple forward to Wade and the Games makes this Shootout automatically by me.

Regards

iBuzz7S 11-20-2012 11:24 AM

You can get both 'Damage Control' and 'One With the Shadows' in the same level, popping right after one another.

During the second mission (Chinatown Square - eliminate the king to Chinatown), disguise yourself in the dealers outfit after following him down a set of stairs. Make your way up a different set of stairs and into a room with a Sniper Rifle on the desk.

Go to the window and wait to be seen, then shoot and kill 'The King'. Once done, hide anywhere in the room and wait for things to cool down. Peek before you exit, checking to see how many (if any) officers are in the room. Walk up to the officer and kill him.

This is how I just got mine.

AmbaLaBamba 11-20-2012 03:04 PM

As always your guides are pretty boss, so thank you! :) Will come in handy when I need to mop up achievements later.

BiggD 11-20-2012 04:02 PM
