CONTRACTS

Blood Money - 20 You completed the Contract Basics Tutorial
First Contract - 20 You completed the Creating Contracts Tutorial
Competitive Spirit - 20 You created a contract competition
Contender - 20 You participated in a contract competition
Partners in Crime - 20 You played a contract made by a friend
Thumbs Up - 20 You liked a contract
Set for Life - 20 You earned 1 million contracts dollars



CAMPAIGN

Damage Control - 20 You contained a situation gone bad
One With the Shadows - 20 You escaped the attention of an enemy
These two work together nicely. During mission 2, the King, first head to the left side with the car and walk right past the cops and up the stairs. This will alert them and they will start following you. Simply do a quick shoot to take them out and get the all clear. Damage Control will unlock. Now as a Police Office walk over to the Snowman's apartment and walk past all 3 cops. They will become alerted and come after you. Simply run into the apartment and go into cover in the armiore. When to cops leave pop out and kill or subdue Snowman and take his disguise to immediately clear yourself. This assumes you do not get seen taking out Snowman and changing disguises.

One of the Guys - 20 You blended in and fooled someone
When you are in disguise other people of the same type as your disguise will not be fooled. You need to hold RB while walking by someone similiar (IE if you are in police uniform walk close to a actual police officer) and hold it down until you get clear. The achievement will pop immediately.

Rocksteady - 20 You executed a point shooting with at least 3 kills
This can be done on civilians so it can be completed as soon as you start The King of Chinatown. Simply go through the opening doors in to the crowded area and hit RB to activate instict, then X for Point Shooting, mark three people qiuckly and hit X again to execute.

Sandman - 20 You subdued a person
Under Wraps - 20 You hid a body
These really go hand in hand. There are many areas and options. I go to the far back right sushi merchant. He is alone and is like 1 foot from a container. Subdue him, NOT KILL, for Sandman and then drag, dump him in the dumpster.

It's All in the Wrist - 50 You successfully performed a lethal throw
At the same sushi merchant there is a filet knife. Just pick up and aim (LT) until you see a red circle indicating a instant kill. Thet hit RT to execute and get the achievement immediately.

Whoops - 20 You made a kill look like an accident
Silent Assassin - 20 You achieved Silent Assassin
Inconspicuous - 20 You remained undetected throughout a checkpoint
All three of these go hand in hand. For mission 2, the King of Chinatown, the easiest way is to get the Fugu Fish from the middle right stall. You need to crouch and get it when the woman in front of it moves. Now head to the back left and down the stairs and poison the drug stash. Now wait for the entire story to play out and and it says that the King is dead. Whoops will pop right then. Now exit through the far left door and Inconspicuous, True Potential and Silent Assassin will unlock.

True Potential - 20 You unlocked a technique
Certain checkpoints has techniques that you will unlock for meeting certain point totals. IF you get through then with the best possible rating you will unlock new techniques.

The Russian Hare - 20 You performed 47 headshots using a sniper rifle
There are many sniper rifles in the game. The first is in Snowman's apartment in mission 2 the King of Chinatown. This mission is fairly nice because there are a LOT of civilians to take out also who are easy headshots. You can reload checkpoint and the total will continue.

Absolution - 50 You completed Hitman: Absolution™ as a professional
This means beating the game on any of the 3 Professional level difficulties. Hard, Expert or Purist.

Information is Power - 30 You collected all evidence
Each level has evidence that you need to collect. These are also challenges for each mission so you can track them in your challenges menu.

Jack of All Trades - 30 You collected all 20 play styles
Play Styles are awarded when you complete most or all of a level completing hidden goals. Example: Piano Man is for using the fiber wire. These are not level specific, they are style specific. Will update when I know more about exacty what is required for each.

Self-improvement - 20 You bought an upgrade for a weapon
The cheapest Silverballer upgrade is 90,000.

Damn Good Coffee - He is not sleeping. He is just resting his eyes
The head of security has a coffee on the bar on the ground floor just off the kitchen. Use the sleeping pills from the upstairs. He will then move down the hall and you can get the keycard.
Play It Again - One must suffer for the arts
There is a piano in the main room of the main mansion ground floor. Ocassionaly the guards will go over to it. Either hand pull the pin (pretty much getting caught) or silently shoot it out. Wait for them to actually put their head in and check the inside of the piano.
The Price of Treason - Complete "A Personal Contract"
Level completed
Well Played - Unaware and untouched
SECRET :: (SEPARATE PLAYTHROUGH) This requires you to do the main Mansion Ground Floor area only engaging main targets. Meaning you can NOT drug the chef.

Grab remote bomb from top of stairs and plant near car. Hit the car alarm and leave area. When King arrives, blow up him and car. Since both police were already dead you get credit for both.
A Killing View - Best try to get an overview of the situation
Two for the Price of One - When the targets align anything is possible

You need to get to Snowman's apartment clean. Then take the sniper rifle from his desk and look out the window. When Snowman and King come close during the conversation take both out with one shot.
Man Down - Like dropping off the face of the earth
There is a open lift by the sushi place at the far back left. King will stop in front of it and just push him in.
Drop Dead - Someone is in for a severe headache
After the lift hole King will go pee on some bikes. Right before he gets there he will walk under a pallet with crates on it. Shot the pin to make it all fall on his head.

SECRET :: This is a 2 part series. First you need to get a cop uniform. Then you need to take out Snowman (the dealer) AFTER he is aware of you. The secret to these 2 challenges is the fact that you will be killing people who KNOW you are there. So head down to the secret stash area and wait for Snowman. Once he comes down and looks at you and moves on you can kill him and take his disguise. This covers Part 1. NOW, go and find the King, he will then follow you to Snowman's apartment. Then kill him when he turns away to get Part 2.

Can you tell me why you recommend Purist for the first Playthrough? Why not Hard or Expert?

I can't see where I say that. I am playing on Purist, but in Roadmap I say any of the 3 hards.

-Does difficulty affect achievements?: Yes, You must play on a Professional level (Hard, Expert or Purist) to get the Absolution achievement.

If I did somewhere I will change it.

I wouldn't recommend playing on Purist, since Disguises are mostly useless in many situations compared to other Hitman games. Stick to Expert, at least that's what I did, and it is certainly challenging. If you're going for "Silent Assassin" "Shadow" in every level, then you will have a tough time. Instinct is very scarce so you won't be able to use it long.
