Hitman: Absolution

Hitman: Absolution Achievements

It's All in the Wrist

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 and aim for the head of the enemy. As long as it's red, press 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.

Just popped for me, just take a knife and perform a lethal throw. This can be unlocked from Mission 1 (cannot be unlocked during prologue mission).

Easy 50G

They should've swapped the score between this achievement and "Information is Power" achievement.Collecting all evidence is a greater pain in the a**.

When you're in the hotel room that gets lit on fire you escape the police and end up having to go through a library with a folding knife as default. Hold LT and line up an enemies head then throw it with RT like you would any object. Easy as piss.
