|1st mission complete||25|
|"Death of a Show man" completed on any difficulty.||(4)|
Simply complete the tutorial mission on any difficulty. This will be the first achievement you earn and you'll never have to play the tutorial again after that. On subsequent playthroughs you no longer have to complete this mission to complete the game, though it will appear in the mission list. Just follow the instructions and finish the level. Don't bother collecting weapons or being stealthy as nothing will carry over to the rest of the playthrough.
|Rookie mode complete||25|
|Completed Rookie difficulty||(3)|
On Rookie difficulty, you may save as many times as you like between missions, notoriety is not in effect and Agent 47 is an unstoppable juggernaut in firefights. Use this difficulty to become familiar with the gameplay and missions. Because this difficulty is so forgiving of mistakes, it is recommended that you also use this playthrough to knock out some of the achievements that may require non-stealthy gameplay. Simply complete every mission on Rookie difficulty, and the achievement will unlock immediately upon completion of the mission "Amendment XXV."
|Normal mode complete||50|
|Completed Normal difficulty|
On Normal difficulty, you may only save seven times per mission, though this is hardly likely to be an annoyance. Agent 47 still has a high amount of health, but notoriety is now in effect. Simply complete every mission on Normal difficulty, and the achievement will unlock immediately upon completion of the mission "Amendment XXV."
|Expert mode complete||75|
|Completed Expert difficulty||(4)|
On Expert difficulty, you may only save three times per mission. Agent 47 has substantially lower health than on Normal difficulty, and evidence now affects your mission ratings (i. e., leaving custom weapons behind, or being recorded by a camera). Simply complete every mission on Expert difficulty, and the achievement will unlock immediately upon completion of the mission "Amendment XXV."
|Professional mode complete||150|
|Completed Professional difficulty||(10)|
On Professional difficulty, no saves are permitted except between missions. Agent 47 has very low health (in many cases a single gunshot will kill you), and once more, evidence will affect your rating. Furthermore, NPCs can now hear silenced gunshots from a non-upgraded weapon if they are nearby, and your map will only show the position of your target(s), VIPs, and you. If you are struggling, there are numerous guides available on the internet, a couple of which are linked below. Simply complete every mission on Professional difficulty, and this achievement will unlock immediately upon completion of the mission "Amendment XXV."

|All firearms collected||100|
|All firearms collected and displayed in Hideout||(9)|
To collect a firearm, you must finish a mission while it is in your inventory, or in an ICA box (there is at least one of these in every mission; it will appear on your map). Not every weapon is required, so check the list below before agonizing over a weapon that you don't need. The list is organized according to how soon you are able to retrieve the weapons, and the missions in which each weapon may be found are noted. Agent 47 can carry an infinite number of small weapons, such as pistols, concealed on his person, but unfortunately can only carry one large weapon at a time, such as a sniper rifle, and it cannot be concealed without a glitch.

At the end of every mission your performance is judged according to very specific criteria and given a specific rating. A "Silent Assassin" rating is the very best, and requires strict adherence to the following conditions:
|Accidents do happen...||20|
|A successful accident kill has been performed.||(6)|
Whether or not the game classifies a kill as "accidental" is a bit subjective, but this achievement is by no means difficult. It's extremely likely that it will be earned in the course of normal gameplay without special effort. Still, if by some chance you don't earn it, then all you need do is kill someone in a way that could conceivably happen by accident. This includes pushing them down stairs or off heights, dropping heavy things on them, sabotaging equipment so that they incinerate or otherwise harm themselves using it, or even something as contrived as sedating a person and putting them in water so they drown. Set off a bomb so that a chandelier or lighting rig falls on someone? Yes, it must have been an accident.
|47 kills in a mission||20|
|A mission has been completed with precisely 47 kills.||(7)|
This achievement can be annoying, but it is very doable if you're purposeful about earning it. It is recommended that you play the entire game once at least, because that will give you a good idea of the layout of every mission. Then use mission select on Rookie difficulty, and bring plenty of weaponry, because NPCs can take a surprising amount of gunfire to kill. Note that the missions "A New Life" and "Requiem", do not contain enough NPCs to obtain this achievement. Enter the mission and begin killing, doing your best to keep count. It may help to write down your progress, or to drag the bodies into piles of 5 or so. "Curtains Down" is probably the most frequently recommended mission to try this on, though on Rookie difficulty it shouldn't be too difficult on any of the others. Once you think you've got enough or slightly less, save the game and finish the mission. The mission rating page will tell you your kill total. If the count is too low, press to replay the mission, and you can reload your last save.
|47 is the world's most wanted.||(9)|
Raise your notoriety to 100/100 (note this cannot be done in Rookie mode as notoriety is not in effect on this difficulty). Notoriety is accrued by actions that the game considers "noisy." This doesn't refer to literal noise; if you fire a hundred un-silenced shots, it won't affect your "noise" in the slightest if no one's around. But if a body's found, if you're spotted by a camera, if a witness sees you dragging a corpse or committing a violent action, or if you wound someone without killing them, then the "noise" level of that mission will increase, and so will your notoriety. Note that you cannot replay a mission to gain more notoriety, so this achievement is technically missable, in that if you beat the game with low notoriety, you will need to start a new playthrough in order to gain this achievement. However, it isn't a difficult achievement, and it's very possible to gain enough notoriety in only two missions to fulfill the requirement. You can spend money to reduce the notoriety afterward. Note also that notoriety does not accrue on Rookie difficulty.
|You can't keep a good man down.||(11)|
To obtain this achievement you must complete the secret epilogue mission "Requiem." This mission is considered post-game, and therefore it isn't necessary to complete it for any of the "**** mode complete" achievements. It is a fairly difficult mission, so it is recommended that you complete it on Rookie difficulty (difficulty doesn't affect the achievement). The mission starts at the credits screen, but you will find that if you move the up and down rapidly, Agent 47 will revive and immediately engage in a firefight with the enemies around him. In order to complete the mission, you just need to kill everyone, including the civilian and the wheelchair-bound villain. If you struggle with dying immediately, it might be worth waiting to revive until the priest comes to the side of the bier. Then, when you revive, Agent 47 will automatically grab the priest and use him as a human shield, which may buy you enough time to get to cover. Either way, beat this mission to unlock the true ending of Hitman: Blood Money.
|$5,000,000 have been accumulated.||(6)|
This is by no means a difficult achievement, but can be missed if not intentionally pursued. It may be best to simply get it out of the way on the first playthrough by not spending any money until you have unlocked it. By playing through the game, completing all the optional objectives, and earning all Silent Assassins, you will earn $6,845,000, a number which doesn't factor in the difficulty bonus that may also be earned. So there's a fairly large margin for error, as well as four opportunities to try over the course of completing every difficulty.
|A Special Rating has been awarded.||(24)|
A Special Rating can be frustratingly hard to obtain, generally because it's still not fully understood how to consistently earn one. There's a forum linked HERE which attempts to classify each one and its method of attainment, but it's far from complete. The most specific and current list of Special Ratings attainable on the Xbox 360 version is:
* All FBI on the map must die (including the backup limos containing agents), all must be killed with sniper rifle (note: you can definately poison the FBI in the van with the donuts. Poison, not sedate).
Rating given will be - Russian Hare, and the achievement unlocked. If this strategy doesn't work for you, then try again; it can be maddeningly inconsistent. People have reported playing the mission up to 10 times in a row in precisely the same way, with identical stats and often extremely close times, getting different rankings every time. So be patient; this one is tricky.
