Hitman: Absolution - All Evidence Locations Guide


There is a total of 45 evidence pieces to collect that count for the achievement, there's actually 46 pieces of evidence in the game with the extra one being in the tailor shop but that doesn't count towards the trophy as there's no challenge to pick it up. Evidence comes in the form of dossiers and video tapes and there's a couple in each mission. Once you've picked one up that's it, it's saved forever and you don't have to pick it up again if you quit, restart or die The best way is to go Rambo to get them, then once you've gotten it just restart checkpoint and play stealthy. Below is the achievement you will unlock for collecting all 45:

Information is Power 30
You collected all evidence


Q. I missed a piece of evidence

A. All you have to do is look at the the challenges menu on the main menu and look up the evidence collector challenge to work out which missions you are missing a piece. Once you've found out just collect the ones your missing and the trophy will unlock as normal.

Q. Can I check how many I have?

A. You can check the Evidence Collector stat on the challenges screen to see how many you have in each mission

Q. So why can't I collect them on easy?

A. The reason is that challenges are blocked on easy, you can't unlock them at all. If you are playing on easy the evidence pieces will still be there but that's it. You will get some points for it but the challenge for them won't complete, thus no trophy at the end of it.

Q. If I die, restart checkpoint or quit after I have picked up a piece of evidence will it still be saved?

A. You will still have it saved, as soon as you pick it up the game will save it and the challenge. So feel free to restart the checkpoint, quit or die. Don't worry about losing the credit towards the achievement. The evidence piece will still be there, if you pick it up you'll just get a score bonus and some instinct.

Video Guide

Text Guide

A Personal Contract

Evidence 1: Cliffside

The first evidence piece is found when you first enter the mansion and have to disable the security system. In a shelf just next to the security system is the evidence.

Evidence 2: Mansion Ground Floor

The best way to approach this is to get the chef uniform from the chef in order to get his evidence piece easier. In the room where you have to kill the security chief is two chairs and a table near where the entrance to the stairs is. On the small table in between the chairs is the evidence

The King of Chinatown

Evidence 3: Chinatown Square

This evidence is in the pagoda, right next to where the king is standing. The evidence is on the table next the the coffee cups. You can just walk into the pagoda then pick it up and restart the checkpoint, but it's best to kill the drug dealer and get his disguise.


Evidence 4: Terminus Hotel

From where you start the level go into the double doors and loom to your left. There is a reception type area with metal design type windows. Go into the open door that says "Private" where the woman is arguing with somebody on the phone, from here you can access the reception room. Simply walk in and on your right on a table is the evidence.

Evidence 5: Upper Floors

Looking at the door to room 899 take a look to your left and go through the door, now go into the double door that is directly to your right after going through the first door. On the long table in the center of the room is the evidence.

Run for Your Life

Evidence 6: The Library

In the open area of the library is a statue, surrounding the statue is a desk. Looking head on at the statue look a tiny bit to the left hand side of the table, the evidence is on the desk.

Evidence 7: Shangri-La

In the area with two police officers and canabis plants is where the evidence is located. Walk to the other side of the room and then go through the exit to your right. Next to the door you just walked through is a hollow window, the evidence is sitting in that window.

Evidence 8: Train Station

There's two ways to get his, in the video I get it from going through the door to the left of you as soon as you exit the elevator. Don't go through the door that's filled with civilians and the blue flashing lights, instead go right. The evidence is on the L shaped desk in the room filled with police officers. You can't really get this without being detected, just pick it up and run.

Hunter and Hunted

Evidence 9: Courtyard

You start the mission underground. What you want to do is find the way to reach the surface by going up the stairs. Once out in the open there is 3 police cars, the one that is in the middle of the other 2 police cars has the evidence piece on the bonnet.

Evidence 10: The Vixen Club

Facing the main entrance to the vixen club, look to your left and go towards the sign that says "Girls Girls Girls". Climb up the ledge hear and shimmy around until you reach the window, climb in here. The room you are now is where the evidence is located. Directly in front of you from the window you entered is the evidence, on the desk.

Evidence 11: Derelict Building

The evidence is located next to the group of poilce officers. If you want you can just kill them all and pick the evidence up, but if you want to sneak around take the approach I take in the video. From the checkpoint you can activate jump up to the ledge and then climb up to the room above. In this room is a dead stripper, you want to dump her off the edge so the police come and check it out. You can now drop down through the gap in front and you'll land directly on the evidence.

Evidence 12: Convenience Store

You can set the fireworks off, but it's not needed. When your in the store just walk towards the exit. On the right just before you leave the store is a counter with a till on it, right next to the till is the evidence.

Evidence 13: Loading Area

After you leave the shop you'll be in the loading area. There is 4 police officers on the right hand side, go to the door you can see in front of you slightly to the left. On the desk is the evidence.

Evidence 14: Chinese New Year

This area is the same area as the 2nd mission, The King of Chinatown. If you can remember back to that mission, go to where the Kings sports car was parked. Go up the small stairs then drop down to the area that wasn't in the 2nd mission. Go around the corner and look at the wooden rubbish that's on the floor in the corner, the evidence is here next to that rubbish.


Evidence 15: Orphanage Halls

As soon as you climb out the elevator shaft take the first right and go down the stairs. At the bottom of the stairs go through the door to your left where there is a couple of enemies. The best way to kill them is use the tools lying around to distract them and pick them off one by one, or go Rambo and shoot them all. On the C shaped desk, the evidence is located at the front of the desk.

Evidence 16: Central Heating

Shortly after entering this area you will find the evidence on a concrete block on the right side of the corridor where the 2 enemies where standing. It is right below the big metal tube in the ceiling.

The evidence is sitting in that player.

Birdie's Gift

Evidence 18: Gun Shop

This one is rather tricky to reach if you don't know how to access it. As soon as you start the level sabotage the electricity on the right hand side to get the guy at the counter to step away.

When you are in the barbershop and have to assassinate 2 of the cougar gang and pacify Lenny, there is a big TV with an adult show playing. On top of this TV is the evidence.

Evidence 27: R&D

AT the very end you will be in a large circular room and have to make your way down to the bottom by taking that path that curves around the edge. Once at the bottom go the the chair on the right with the 3 flat screen monitors by it. Behind these monitors is the evidence.

Evidence 28: Patriot's Hangar

As soon as you start the mission you will see a caravan in the center with the patriot training and somebody making some food.

Go behind the caravan and in the back right corner the evidence is on a box.

Evidence 29: The Arena

After fighting Sanchez, take a left towards the bar and go through the open door behind the bar. Go up the stairs and then take a right to go onto the catwalk. A door leading to a room with a couple of people in is at the end of the catwalk. The evidence is located by the TV in this room.

Awesome guide, only thing is, if you only have 1 video you may want to include timestamps to make it easier to find a certain piece of evidence.
