Ghost Buster

Contracts: You killed the ghost  

To unlock this achievement you will need to find and kill the ghost during the mission 'Traditions of the Trade'. You will find the ghost in the long corridor that leads to the crime scene room. You will know which corridor it is as there are 4 open windows with their curtains blowing around eerily. You will need to get to the corridor quickly in order to see the ghost. If you happen to miss it, or it doesn't show at all, you can simply run back out of the closed wing, then turn around and run back to the corridor to try again. The only way to kill the ghost is with the fiber wire. You need to be behind it as it turns, in the corridor and quickly press  to kill it with the fiber wire.

Anyway I went into the East Wing of the Hotel on "Traditions of the Trade" where the ghost resides. I went into the room next to the one where the cop is showering and looked in the mirror and saw the ghost. I turned around and aimed about where the ghost was standing in the mirror. My crosshairs turned red and I shot off several rounds, making a blood splatter on the wall but no achievement. I will try it in the room where the cop is showering tomorrow. Maybe that makes a difference as you see the ghost walk through that door from the hall.

To do this, as Trevorkill said, start up 'Traditions Of The Trade' mission. Make your way into the hotel but don't attract any attention, as soon as you enter, turn right past the counter and go through the double doors. Then pick-lock the doors infront of you but make sure the ones behind you are closed otherwise the police will see you. Once through, equip the fibre wire and go left round the corridor - you should see a transparent figure, quickly strangle it to unlock the achievement! On a personal note, when I played Contracts the first time many many years ago; I accidentally stumbled across this ghost and it seriously freaked me out. Contracts is my favourite Hitman game too, very dark and sometimes pretty scary too.

Aah. Good call LiamVIII. I didn't know you could wire it. It took a couple tries, but I finally managed to do a quick wire animation on it right as it was walking into the wall in the hallway.

So the only way to kill it is when it is floating through the corridor? I saw it briefly in the corridor but did not pay any more attention to it since I was trying to get the suit from the police man posing in front of the mirror in his bathroom. I later found the ghost in the mirror of the bathroom where the crime scene is. Guess that's too late and I have to start all over again, huh?

I have to say I played Contracs dozens of times on PC years ago, but never stumbled upon this little gimmick. Shame on me, pretty neat detail the devs put in here.

what wouldve made this easter egg even better is if you could change into his clothes after you killed him.

"guards are looking for a suspicious ghost"
