Achievement Guide and Roadmap


Huge thanks to Rajeanero for the banner.

Overview
-Estimated achievement difficulty: 6/10
-Offline: 50/50 (1000)
-Online: 0/50
-Approximate amount of time to 1000: 35-50 Hours
-Minimum number of playthroughs needed: 4/2 (3 for Silent Assassin, but you can do just 1 full playthrough, provided that you start on professional, more details in step 1 and 1 playthrough for Contracts, as the difficulty achievements do stack)
-Number of missable achievements: None (Mission Select)
-Do cheat codes disable achievements?: No cheats
-Does difficulty affect achievements?: Yes
-Glitchy achievements: Yes (Difficulty achievements in Silent Assassin may or may not stack, depends on luck. Weapon collection achievements can also be glitchy, which ones and how many of them is seemingly random, No fix as of yet)
-Unobtainable achievements: None
-Extra equipment needed?: None

Introduction
So its finally here. A game that hardcore fans and casual gamers alike have been waiting for. Hitman Hd Trilogy, features 3 past Hitman games (Silent Assassin, Contracts and Bloodmoney) with a new set of achievements that can be earned through playing Silent Assassin and Contracts. This trilogy does not come with new achievements for Blood Money. You can still earn the achievements from Hitman: Blood Money, which is included in the trilogy, but has no new achievements of its own. The achievements from Blood Money can only be earned once however, so if you have already unlocked them, then you can only get the newly added 1000

The achievements for the 2 games, Silent Assassin and Contracts, are very similar to each other, so you will almost be earning the same achievements twice, but for 2 different games.

The difficulty achievements for Silent Assassin are reportedly glitchy and may or may not stack. This is entirely down to random chance and no fix is currently known. The difficulty achievements in Contracts do stack and thus only 1 playthrough is required.

To make things easier to find while playing each game, follow the key below.

Hitman 2: Silent Assassin achievements will be GREEN
Hitman: Contract achievements will be BLUE

Step 1: Hitman 2: Silent Assassin


You should start by playing Hitman 2: Silent Assassin, as this is the earliest of the games, so you may as well play them in order. The achievements for completing the game on the different difficulties are reportedly glitchy and they may stack, but it isn't very likely. You can choose to complete the game 3 times, once on each difficulty and the achievements will unlock, but there is a workaround. If you play through the game for the first time on professional difficulty, after completing the last mission and making your post-game save, you will be returned to the main menu. From here you should proceed to load up the post-game save that you just created and a list of all of the missions will appear. Select the final mission and complete it again and the 'Expert' difficulty achievement should unlock. Repeat this step again to unlock the 'Normal' difficulty achievement.

There are only 3 achievements that you are guaranteed to unlock just by playing through the game, which are, '1st Mission Complete', 'Normal/Expert/Professional mode complete' and '1st Kill', worth a grand total of 30. None of the achievements are missable, however, as you can use the mission select feature to choose any level you may have unlocked.

Step 2: Hitman: Contracts

After completing Silent Assassin, you can now proceed with Hitman: Contracts. The achievement list is almost identical, but for the secret achievements and some of the miscellaneous achievements. I would recommend that you start on professional difficulty, as you should now be familiar with the game mechanics. The difficulty achievements do stack, so you may as well start on professional to save yourself playing the game 3 times through, but of course this is your choice. None of the achievements are missable as you can use the mission select feature to choose any mission that you want to play again.

Step 3: Hitman: Blood Money

As previously mentioned, there are no new achievements introduced for Hitman: Blood Money, but you can earn the original 1000 that came with the original Blood Money when it was released in 2006. You cannot earn the achievements from Blood Money twice, so if you have already unlocked them, then there are no achievements for you to unlock beyond the new 1000 for Silent Assassin and Contracts. Though they are not new and thus will not be outlined within this achievement guide, i will provide a link within this step of the roadmap, for those who have yet to earn them and are interested in doing so.

Hitman: Blood Money Achievement Guide

Conclusion

A relatively easy 1000 coming from possibly the best and most anticipated HD collection yet! I would suggest that you take your time to learn each game on normal, before attempting expert or professional as this will make the higher difficulties more manageable to complete. It is always useful to have a walkthrough handy, just in case you get stuck. No achievements are missable, as you can use the mission select feature to retry any mission you have so far beaten and your new score on that mission will be recorded, so getting silent assassin rating on any mission will over write the mass murder rating you got the first time around.

Silent Assassin Achievements

1st mission complete 10
Silent Assassin: You completed the first mission on any difficulty level

Story related, can't be missed.

This achievement is obtained by completing the first mission 'Anathema'.


Silent Assassin 10
Silent Assassin: A Silent Assassin rating has been awarded

See "5 Professional Silent Assassins" achievement description.

Here is a video, with links to every level being completed with a silent assassin rating, courtesy of deathmule;


5 Normal Silent Assassins 15
Silent Assassin: 5 Silent Assassin ratings awarded on Normal difficulty

See "5 Professional Silent Assassins" achievement description.


5 Expert Silent Assassins 15
Silent Assassin: 5 Silent Assassin ratings awarded on the Expert difficulty

See "5 Professional Silent Assassins" achievement description.


5 Professional Silent Assassins 45
Silent Assassin: 5 Silent Assassin ratings awarded on the Professional difficulty

Silent Assassin is the highest rating you can receive at the end of a mission and you can earn it by being the perfect assassin. Things to consider when trying to get a silent assassin rating are how many people were killed, as only your targets should be killed. Also, how stealthily you carried yourself throughout the mission, for instance, not being caught in a disguise or a restricted area. Killing civilians and police is completely unacceptable as is killing guards and patrolling enemies. You should try to avoid all contact with people during the missions and only kill your target. You should only kill in a stealthy fashion too, shooting someone, even with a silenced weapon, will void the silent assassin rating. You should try to make kills look like an accident by exploring the possibilities of how you can kill your targets.

You will be able to see what your score is at the end of your mission. You can have at worst, 1 'alert' OR a 'no target killed' in your performance statistics and you can still attain a silent assassin rating.

These ''5 Silent Assassin ratings'' achievements are stackable, so getting 5 Silent Assassin ratings on professional will unlock the lower difficulty achievements, too.

You can obtain this achievement, by replaying the first mission 5 times and getting the silent assassin rating each time, if you want to get it very easily.

Normal mode complete 10
Silent Assassin: Completed normal difficulty

Story related, can't be missed.

Simply complete the game on Normal difficulty.

The difficulty achievements may or may not stack, as they are glitchy. Whether they do or not is purely down to luck at this time.

Expert mode complete 15
Silent Assassin: Completed expert difficulty

Story related, can't be missed.

Simply complete the game on Expert difficulty.

The difficulty achievements may or may not stack, as they are glitchy. Whether they do or not is purely down to luck at this time.

Professional mode complete 45
Silent Assassin: Completed Professional difficulty

Story related, can't be missed.

The achievements for the difficulties may or may not stack, as they are glitchy, but you can obtain them all in 1 full playthrough, plus completing the final mission 2 more times, by using the method outlined in step 1 of the roadmap, above. This is the hardest difficulty mode and you will likely be restarting your missions frequently. Using a walkthrough will help out and should shorten your play time if you know what to do ahead of time.

Simply complete the game on professional difficulty, to unlock this achievement.

All firearms collected 45
Silent Assassin: All firearms collected and displayed in the Hideout

To obtain this achievement, you must find and collect all of the firearm weapons within the game. This includes all weapons that are classed as firearms, such as guns and explosives.

For this achievement, you must find and collect all of the melee weapons within the game. You must pick each one up and keep it your inventory until you finish the level.

When it is in your possession, you must proceed to kill 18 people with it. It is strongly recommended to attempt this on an easy difficulty, as you will be trying to kill armed guards with it, who will not hesitate to shoot you.

Contracts Achievements

1st mission complete 10
Contracts: You completed the first mission on any level

Story related, can't be missed.

This achievement is earned after beating the first mission 'Asylum Aftermath'.

Silent Assassin 10
Contracts: A Silent Assassin rating has been awarded

See ''5 Professional Silent Assassins'' achievement description.

5 Normal Silent Assassins 15
Contracts: 5 Silent Assassin ratings awarded on Normal difficulty

See ''5 Professional Silent assassins'' achievement description.

5 Expert Silent Assassins 15
Contracts: 5 Silent Assassin ratings awarded on Expert difficulty

See ''5 Professional Silent Assassins'' achievement description.

5 Professional Silent Assassins 45
Contracts: 5 Silent Assassin ratings awarded on Professional difficulty


Silent Assassin is, as with the previous game, the highest rating you can achieve within a mission. The requirements to achieve this rating, differ slightly from the previous game, but the principle is the same, be the perfect assassin.

To achieve the silent assassin rating, you need to complete your mission without having your cover blown and without there being any witnesses to your actions. Also, you cannot be caught on a security camera, unless you manage to acquire the tape that you have been recorded on. No-one can be injured or killed except your target, unless it was an 'accident'.

On expert and professional difficulty, all of the previous stipulations must be followed, but there are more with it being a harder difficulty. On expert and professional, you also cannot leave any evidence behind, which is basically your suit if you change disguise and any custom weapons that you take with you must also be retrieved. Also, no bodies may be found, so anyone you kill, which should only be your target, must be hidden unless the kill was an accident.

These ''5 Silent Assassin ratings'' achievements are stackable, so getting 5 Silent Assassin ratings on professional will unlock the lower difficulty achievements, too.

You can get a silent assassin rating on the same mission, 5 times and you will still get the achievement.

Normal Mode Complete 10
Contracts: Completed normal difficulty

Story related, can't be missed.

Simply complete the game on Normal difficulty.

The difficulty achievements DO stack, so completing the game on Professional difficulty, will also earn you this achievement.

Expert Mode Complete 15
Contracts: Completed Expert difficulty

Story related, can't be missed.

Simply complete the game on Expert difficulty.

The difficulty achievements DO stack, so completing the game on Professional difficulty, will also earn you this achievement.

Professional Mode Complete 45
Contracts: Completed professional difficulty

Story related, can't be missed.

The achievements for the difficulties DO stack. Completing the game on Professional will also unlock all of the other achievements below it if they are not unlocked. This is the hardest difficulty mode and you will likely be restarting your missions frequently. Using a walkthrough will help out and should shorten your play time if you know what to do ahead of time.

Simply complete the game on Professional difficulty, to unlock this achievement.

All firearms collected 45
Contracts: All firearms collected and displayed in the training room

To unlock this achievement you must collect and have on display every firearm weapon in the game. To have a weapon count as collected and be on display in your training room, you must pick it up during a mission and complete the mission with the weapon still in your inventory. If you drop the weapon at any point and fail to pick it back up, you will not have collected it and will have to restart the mission to acquire it.

Below is a video, showing you where every weapon in the game is located;

This how I got when I kill few in first mission then restart mission it wouldn't counts so do reload a saved same. So best complete mission with kills saved then do mission again by replay it until you receive cheevo.

I am sure other kills achievements do same. COMPLETE MISSION and SAVE KILL COUNTS AND ON AND ON.
Thank you for confirming this, ill be sure to add it to the guide.

it could be a silenced version of the w2000 as i didnt include it. im not sure if it has its own slot though, so it could be something else. i dont have the game yet, so i will find out as soon as i get it and will be revising all of the info that is currently in the guide.

unless someone else knows and can tell us, i will be updating the guide with info as i learn it, so you will know soon enough, hang tight.

*NEED TO CONFIRM WHICH MISSION IS BEST AND WHETHER CIVILIANS/POLICE COUNT TOWARDS THIS.*
Confirmation as asked:

Best mission: BASEMENT KILLING
Approx. enemies: +48
Everyone counts towards this achievement (Firefigthers, Civilians, Guards, Police, etc.)
Just make sure to save after every 10 kills (7 saves in Normal mode will suffice).

A special thanks for the tip to my dear Annalie aka Sarena!

You cannot just pick it up then drop it, as this will not count as being 'collected'.There are 6 melee weapons that you need to collect and their name along with their possible locations are as follows;
Just want to point out that this achievement unlocked for me when I PICKED UP THE LAST WEAPON. In my case the "shovel". Didn't even have to finish the level.

Also your description is slightly wrong, it's just:

Contracts: You have found all melee weapons

There are two similar yet different achievements for Silent Assassin and Contracts related to melee weapons. The one for Silent Assassins is for bringing them all back. The one for Contracts is for picking them all up, as you can't bring them back. Don't try and correct things that aren't wrong.

Actually I think you quoted the wrong achievement but were correct about what you meant. So just a little misunderstanding. No harm done right?

Cheers for this, with this description, i think the guide should be about complete.

i think you read the wrong description, for silent assassin, which you quoted, the description is to have it displayed in your shed, but contracts doesn't say that.

Quick note, i think the guide is now done and im going to read through and check it, etc, but would appreciate a second opinion if someone has some spare time, just to read through and see if there are any mistakes.

cheers to everyone that has helped

Solid guide, Scotty. However, I have some helpful news regarding these achievements...

Simply complete the game on Normal difficulty.

The difficulty achievement DO NOT stack, so you will need to complete the game on Expert difficulty, to unlock this achievement.

Professional mode complete 45
Silent Assassin: Completed Professional difficulty

Story related, can't be missed.

The achievements for the difficulties DO NOT stack so completing the game on Professional will not unlock all of the other achievements below it if they are not unlocked. This is the hardest difficulty mode and you will likely be restarting your missions frequently. Using a walkthrough will help out and should shorten your play time if you know what to do ahead of time.

Simply complete the game on professional difficulty, to unlock this achievement.
You do not have to complete the story two more times through on Expert and Normal, given that you have finished it on a Professional run first. Once you have beaten the game, you are taken back to the Main Menu. From here load your "Redemption at Gonttranno" save to be taken to the Mission List and load up that level again. After beating Sergei, skipping the cutscenes, and saving the game, I unlocked the achievement for completing Expert. Rinse and repeat for the Normal achievement as well. Hope it helps save some time.

i need to ask how this works, i have just finished the game on professional and when i load up my post-game save, and choose the last mission, i can't change the difficulty, so are you saying completing the last mission again, but still on professional, will unlock the expert, then normal achievements, or did you somehow change the difficulty?

quite frankly, i would rather do the entire game again on expert than do that last level on professional. my controller is fucked up now, that was the most infuriating thing ever.

So let's *re-cap:

1. You just finished Professional for the first time. Cutscenes are shown, the credits roll, and you are asked to save one more time before being taken back to the Main Menu.

2. From here, go to "Load" and boot up your Redemption at Gontranno save. If you've done everything as I have said so far, the Mission List will come up. Pick said level again and beat it. You will get the Expert completion achievement.

3. Cutscenes roll, credits roll, (or just mash A to skip) and save again. Get taken back to the Main Menu. Repeat Step #2 to get the Normal completion achievement.

4. You just saved a lot of time!

*Caveat - I'm assuming you started on Professional difficulty to save time doing several run-through attempts of Expert and Normal. The reason I discovered this little glitch is because completing 5 Silent Asssassin ratings on Professional gets you the achievements for the two lower difficulties. So, I figured, why doesn't completing Professional get you the lower difficulty completion achievements? Once you follow my steps, assuming you did Professional first, this will work.

47 kills in a level achievement for silent assassin, I chose the level Terminal Hospitality, took the M60, killed every living person in the map but left two nurses and I got the achievement, hope that helps.

I wasn't even sure what level had 47 people let alone which was the easiest.

I started playing on Professional thinking the difficulty achievs were going to stack. Oh well. Probably not going to play the lower difficulties now either. Way too many other games coming out soon. Dead Space 3 is next.

Hey Scotty you definitely need to change them since the difficulties DO STACK. Just did my first PRO run and unlocked the other two difficulty achievements along with it. What a relief compared to SA with its 20 missions!

.
Also for this can be easily done on the second mission THE MEAT KING'S PARTY cause there are plenty people to kill. On my last count +60.

Just don't forget to count the smoker and the fat guy in. Same rules as in SA, everyone counts towards this.
