GameZone presents Agent 47 in his new endeavor in search for Absolution after all the years of sinning. We bring to you - Hitman: Absolution in all of it's glory....
-- Access Mansion Grounds
We start off the game with a little introductory scenario where you are given directions by the game's voice. Move ahead past the Ice Cream truck and when you reach the gate, you are told to look for an alternative path. Look to the left of the gate and you'll find a way inside -
Keep crouched and move into the area. Now, you will be able to see pointers in your mini map which represent the enemies. Their direction is also shown. Now, as soon as you go in, hit SPACE near one of the carts to take cover behind them. Now, use your INSTINCT to search for any object and to the right, you will spot a wrench. Take it and throw it into the buckets -
Then the guard gets distracted and you can move past him into the next place. There are more enemies in the next area and you can use the similar technique to distract them and move past them. You will reach the Tennis Court from here. Try to stay hidden and keep moving and soon you will reach your first checkpoint. Past the Checkpoint, you will come into a small area with four enemies close by -
If you stay in a cover place where a guard comes around ahead of you then you can attack him and subdue him. Move to the left most side so that you come on behind the left most guard on the map and distract him and move past him towards the left (use your instinct to know the location of the exit). At the exit, you have to be a little careful as two guys keep talking over here. Wait for their conversation to end and only then they will move away and you can slip past them to the exit door -
Move ahead once you are past the door and use your Instinct to know the movements of the guards. Wait for one of them to the come to the railing on the left side and throw him into the sea. Then go to the next guy and do the same (you can additionally use the knife to distract or kill one of these guys) -
Keep crouched and move ahead and take cover. You will notice two guys talking to each other. Use INSTINCT here to notice a disguise to the right which glows yellow -
Equip the disguise and you can simply walk past the enemies while holding the INSTINCT button as you move past them to avoid detection.
-- Infiltrate Greenhouse
After the successful infiltration of the Greenhouse, you need to move past the Greenhouse and out of it. The best path out of the greenhouse is to move from the right side. If you have instinct then you can move thru quickly and use instinct whenever you are being detected. If you are more patient then you can move past without using instinct even once as the gardeners patrol around the area. Once you reach the other end, use your instinct to locate a pipe with a valve -
Turn this valve and the people blocking the exit to the left now disperse and you can move thru easily.
-- Gain Access to the Mansion
Once you move out of the greenhouse, you will come to three guys ahead. You can simply walk past these guys if you have the security guard outfit with the use of instinct. Once you reach the right side end, you will come to a ledge, use it to move towards the window -
Keep going up and you will come to an open window. There's some guy who patrols around this place so wait for him to come near the window and pull him out. You will come to another guard inside with a in-mansion security guard outfit. You can subdue him and take his outfit and then dump his body into the sea. Move into the mansion now thru the door ahead.
-- Disable Security Systems
After going in move to the right end and you will see a laptop here from which you can disable the security systems. There's also another interior security disguise here and a piece of Evidence to the left -
Take it and go thru the door into the house.
-- Get Keycard from Head of Security
Once inside, go to the kitchen where you see the Chef scolding a guard. Wait in cover and after the guard is sent away, subdue the chef, take his outfit and dump him to the left in a bin beside the refrigerator. Move out into the main hall where the Head of Security is talking. Move ahead and to the left and go up the stairs and you'll come to the rest room. Here you'll find some sleeping pills. Take these back downstairs and to the main hall. Here if you use your instinct, you will find a cup of coffee which the Head is drinking from. You can place the pills in this cup. Then after he starts sleeping, grab his card and move to the exit of the upper floor. Use the card here and you'll come to some stairs. Keep going and you'll reach Diana.
-- Get to Victoria
Move out and you'll soon come to four guys ahead of you. Here the game teaches you how to use the quick shot. First while using instinct, hit Q to enter quick shot mode and mark all your targets - mark their heads for lethal takedowns. After you mark all of them, hit the button again and 47 immediately shoot all of them in the place where you aimed. After you kill them the entrance to Victoria's room is free and you can go in -
Thus ends the Personal Contact...
KING OF CHINATOWN
Your first objective is to find and then assassinate the King of Chinatown. He can be found very easily (infact I don't know why they mentioned this as an objective). Just head straight inside the square and you will be able to find him inside the pagoda which is at the center of the place -
14 27 42
Eliminate the King of China Town
You can't just strike at him now because if you use your instinct you'll see all the bodyguards around him in yellow, all of them - Chicago Police. So, just continue right to the alley where you'll be able to see a Police Officer in the end resting on a chair -
You will also be able to see a fuse box to the right here. Go near the box and hit E to demolish it. Now move back a bit. Wait for the guard to come to the fuse box and then crouch and move past him. Now, once you are past him, you will come to a set of stairs. Go up these stairs and use your instinct to locate the dealer. Move in and subdue him whenever possible and then change to his clothes. Drag him into the nearby bin and dump the body.
You will also be able to find a Kazo TRG on the desk to the right here. Take it and move to the window. Now, point to the King's head and hold SHIFT to stabilize the aim and make the shot. After you kill him, holster the rifle and move back downstairs casually while the police come up looking for a hitman. You can just walk past the police without anything happening. Go into the Pagoda where you shot the king and you will be able to grab a piece of EVIDENCE here -
Take it and go to the right side ahead (you can also use instinct to locate the exit). The exit is a door which has a duck with a chef's hat on it.
Gain access to the upper floors
NOTE: This mission will take a lot of time and patience so make sure you are not short of both before starting the mission.
Go straight and you'll spot the hotel at the other side of the road. If you go to the right from here, you will be able to see a mini-van. There's a construction worker here who talks to one of the bodyguards and moves inside. Infront of the van on top of a trash bin is a wrench. Pick it up and move to the front of the van. Crouch here and throw the wrench onto the shutter door to the right -
This will make the bodyguard ahead to come and checkout the area. Subdue him, take his clothes and dump his body inside the trash can.
Before we go to the next area, we should be taking a detour so that we can pick up a piece of evidence. Go back and into the hotel area and enter thru the main entrance. Remember that the guards can spot you since you wearing their uniform. Now, you will need to be careful while moving - use instinct to cover yourself if someone is watching you or better yet, wait for the guards to move away and only then move thru the area.
After entering the hotel, go to the right side where you will find an office with an old man inside. Go in past him and recover the piece of EVIDENCE you find here -
Now, we can continue with our main objective. You need to go into the cellar area. You can go there in a few different way. One is to go thru the laundry chute from the laundry room which is to the left of the hotel here. The second is to go back outside all the way to where you subdued the first guard whose clothes you are wearing. Then you can go in from there too.
Either way, once you are down there, make your way to the elevator which is in the center of this area. There's a checkpoint in the room which is to the left of the elevator. Once you are near the elevator, wait for the guard nearby to move away and stay crouched and call the elevator. Move back and hide till the elevator comes and get inside it once it lands.
Get to the eighth floor
Now, you'll come to the seventh floor and you need to get to the eight floor from here. You can easily do this but first, as soon as you exit the elevator, move to the left side into the room here (it says staff only). After you enter the room, wait for a while as a maid also enters the room. Wait for her to turn her back to you and then go to the disguise which is here and wear it. You need to wear the disguise when the maid is not looking - you can also wait for the maid to go outside and then change. Once you are in the Janitor's clothes there's no one who can stop you in this floor. So go out and roam freely and when you are ready to continue then head to the right from the elevator. Here you will come to a grill to the left which has a board on it asking you not the enter or something like that. If you listen carefully, you will also hear some music and if you go in, you'll see large speakers outside a room.
Go to the speakers and sabotage them. Wait for the guy inside to come out and look at the speakers and when he is attending to his speakers, crouch past him into his room and go to the left near the window and slip out thru the window.
Once you are outside, go onto the ledge and to the right you'll come to some stairs. Go up these stairs and you'll come to a checkpoint. Once you are past the checkpoint, move onto the ledge to the right and wait near the open window. One of the guards comes near the window. Wait for him to come to it and then pull him out -
There are still two more inside but you need not worry about them as their patrol routes will not cross the path you'll be taking. Now use instinct to see where the other two guards are and while they are looking away, go in thru the window and crouch behind the table immediately and take cover.
Get to room 899
Once the guards do not notice you. Go behind the piano and watch out for the guard who is to the left. To avoid him. You can move to the space which is to the right of the open door thru which he looks and the couch to the right of the door. If you hide in this space, you will be out of danger from both the guards -
Wait for the guard to the left to go back on his patrol and while he is away, move in and hide inside the storage cabinet ahead. Wait for this guard to move to the door which you came in form and move out and subdue him. Drop his body into the cabinet and move thru the door. You'll see that the room 899 ahead is locked. So, go thru the vent to the right of the room and you will be ale to listen to an interesting conversation. After you are done, move ahead into the dark all the way thru the vent.
RUN FOR YOUR LIFE
Move to the back of the room and go thru the window. Go to the right and climb the ladder on the fire escape. When you are on the roof. Head down the stairs and to the right and be sure you are crouching. You'll come to three police officers here. If you can wait then they will gradually withdraw from the place and you can follow them. Once you come down the stairs sneak behind them into the shed nearby and break the door in the end to come out of this place.
This place is very easy to go thru even though it looks complicated. The first point of action is to grab a uniform though which will help you to get past the enemies a bit easier. Go down from where you are and then wait for the closest guy to get near you. You will be able to spot a dumpster in the back nearby. Take his clothes and dump him. Or you can do this to any other cop ahead provided you wait for him to get near the dumpster. If you move from the right side of this place, you will be able to proceed till the end where you'll find two cops guarding the door ahead. Best thing to do is use something and throw it to distract both the guards and move thru as they inspect the disturbance. Exit thru the double doors and go up the first flight of stairs. Go near where the second should be but the stairs are broken. Now climb the ledge and go up. You'll come to the exit soon enough.
Keep going and soon you'll come to a small ventilation shaft near the ground -
Go thru it and in the next area, you'll come to the copter again and two cops who ae blocking your path. They just keep on chatting -
It's better to just slip past them while they are busy in their conversation. Just move from cover to cover using the change cover command whenever possible. Just run to the door when it's nearby - don't worry about the detection arrow. Just run and hit the interact button near the door to pick the lock and go thru.
You'll come to some kind of hippy paradise. Keep going thru it till you come to the large plant indoor-nursery. Go to the other end while staying crouched in the plant and choose a path thru the place that is least visible to the other officers. Once you come out the other side. Go to the right hallway and you'll come to a room to the right in the end which has only one police officer. Go in and subdue him.
After that, move to the room which is to the right of this one and look at the notebook on the table -
After taking the notebook, go back to the safe and unlock it. Arm the explosive and pick it up. Now, where you place the explosive is totally up to you. You can place it in this room and go back outside and into the door which is opposite of this one and blow the bomb or you can throw the bomb somewhere else and detonate it.
Thing is, once you detonate the bomb, the police officers who are guarding the entrance to the elevator should move from there allowing you to get to the elevator. Once you do get to it, call the elevator and get out of here.
You'll be asked to locate the exit as soon as you come here. Go left first and immediately take cover behind the low wall ahead and wait for a police officer to come up. When you can, subdue him and dump him in the box. Wait for the other officers to dispoerse downstairs and then move ahead. Sneak past the last cops when they are distracted by the commuters and you'll come out to the crowd.
Once you are in the crowd, things should be very easy. You should be able to blend in with the crowd rather easily by standing still when you draw ay attention. Head to the left end of this area to the ledge -
Go thru the window and then up the ladder which you come to. You'll come into the signals main room where you can activate the train signal on platform B -
Move out thru the door and go to the right. You will see a counter on the bottom of the screen which tells you how much time remains in 15 sec intervals. You'll have to be on the platform in 45 secs. If you come by an officers, then use your instinct to move past them. As soon as the train comes, move into it along with the crowd and the coast should be clear as soon as you do so -22
Hunter and Hunted
Keep moving ahead till you come to some officers. To the left here is a room which is filled with paper cuttings of missing people -
In this room, if you wait outside one of the officers comes in and looks around. If you want a disguise, this is a good time to get it. Go back outside and in a place to the left is a air vent which you can use to get out of here -
You will also find a checkpoint here just below the vent -
Keep going and you will come outside to the police. If you use your instinct, you will be able to see the exit ahead. But the area is filled with policemen and to get to the exit you'll have to be very careful. If your instinct is high enough then just use it to slip past them without any suspicion.
The Vixen Club
You'll come out to the Vixen Club. There are three guys ahead but you don't need to go there. Just look to the left and on the wall you will find a ledge -
After you go up the ledge, you can go into the club thru the open window. This is a jackpot area since you will be able to find EVIDENCE, a KEYCARD and also a JAGD pistol in this room -
Go down the stairs and you'll come out to a door. Past this door is a chick who can spot you and two guys. The two guys go away when their conversation is finished so wait for them to go and crouch past the chick to the left and you'll come to the entrance of the club area.
Go into the club and the surroundings come to life. DOM keeps moving thru the club area and there are two ways you can kill him. First is easier - go to the right from the entrance and you will come to the rest room -
Go in and subdue the bouncer inside and wear his clothes. You can dump his body in the locker nearby. You can wait here till Dom comes in and he does come in after a while and keeps doing his rounds here. Once he comes in you can grab him and kill him with the signature fiber wire which will give you an additional bonus. Then dump him inside the locker too and go out calmly.
The second way to kill him is to get a Keycard from one of the bouncers (the guy in the wash room works fine). Take his disguise and keycard. Go to the left end of the club where you'll see a group of guys around a single dancer. This is supposed to be a bachelor party. Go in thru the door to the right here and once inside, look out the glass to the dancer and the group of guys outside. There's a switch here which has a warning note to it.
The note asks you not to hit it - but were here exactly for that. Wait for Dom to come into the room ahead and he comes close to the Dancing babe. Hit the button now and the Disco Ball falls on him and he's in a pool of blood -
this will give you even higher kill bonus.
There are some other things you can do like check for a room with a booby babe which unlocks the private dance achievement. Then you will need to gain access to the upper floor of the club.
From where you are (in the room next to the bachelor party). Go left but be wary of all the guards and dancers. You'll come to some stairs here but it has two guys nearby. You can distract them by throwing something or just use instinct to get past them. Once you come out on top. Crouch and pass the guys here. Keep going and you'll make it to the office without any problems since there's no one around. Use the answering machine on the table to end this.
Go ahead till you come to a group of police officers looking around a small hole in the ground -
Leave them be and move to the right and thru the broken rooms. Keep going and you'll come to a checkpoint. To the left you can climb onto the ledge -
On the top floor move to the left and you will find the dead body of a girl the police are looking for. Pick up the body and dump it onto the lower floor -
After you dump it, move to the right and go thru the rooms and in the end, you can jump down to the lower level. But watch out for the cops, wait for all of them to move to the dead body you just threw and climb down -
There's EVIDENCE just below after you come down. pick it up and move to the left. Keep going and climb any ledge if you need to and you'll come to the exit soon.
Move to the left edge and climb down to the lower ledge -
Be careful as you come down since a cop is looking around the room in the lower area and the window is boarded. You'll be spotted here if you aren't careful. Move past the window after the cop moves away and crouch near the wood platform which is connecting the roof ahead -
Go to the opposite roof and and onto the ledge to the left -
Go thru the window into the store but watch out for the clerk inside. Subdue him and take his disguise. You can dump him in the container nearby. Then go down into the store and move to the right where you see a police officer talking to a woman. Go behind them (if you use your instinct, you can see a pipe glowing yellow. Go to the right here to find a valve -
Now the fire alarm starts but that's not enough is it? In addition to the fire alarm, if you use your instinct you can see a ripple somewhere nearby where you'll see a switch with which you can start a fire and a cloud of some and just walk thru the store without anyone noticing - but just the fire alarm from earlier is enough.
The last thing you are supposed to do is to slip past a set of cops. There's a fuse box you can sabotage ahead. Use it when the cop to the right is not looking and wait for him to get to it. Then slip past him from the right and wait here because there's another cop just ahead. Keep going and you'll come to the exit and you can go thru it to the next and final area of this mission.
Chinese New Year
This is perhaps my favorite part of this mission and one of my favorite assassinations in the entire game. You'll be entertained to no mean ends here....and you'll see clearly how great the game is and how much thought the developers put into making it work.
Note that you can kill a target in more than a few different ways and how you do it is entirely up to you. Let's start then -
First, note that you'll need instinct to identify the three enemies amongst the crowd of people and if anyone is recognizing you. You can move into the crowd and stay still and the alert arrow will go away. So let's go for Frank Owens first.
He's the guy in the middle pic in the three pics to the top right of the screen. From where you entered this area, go straight and to the right corner of this entire area - if you remember from the earlier mission you exited this area thru the duck hat door when you eliminated the King of Chinatown. Anyway, you'll come to an area to the right which is guarded by a police office and as you get here one of the stall workers comes in and talks to the police guy. Crouch near the broken area of the wall ahead and look thru -
You'll see the chef smoking inside. Now, observe him very carefully and you will see him smoke a cigarette each time, throw it down and turn around. You'll have only a couple of seconds to move in when he turns around. So watch him and go inside when he turns around -
Go in and keep going till you get to the gas pump ahead. Sabotage the pump and move back and hide behind the low wall here -
Wait for Frank to come here and talk on his phone and see what happens next. You can dump his body nearby. There's also a sledgehammer with which you can cause a bit to noise so that the chef and cop go away. Now move out of this place and let's go for the next guy.
As you move out of this place, move ahead and go right, you should see one more guy ahead talking on his phone. Follow him ahead, he moves thru the central pagoda towards the tatoos store in the area ahead and takes a right from the Tattoos store -
Then continues to the Dance to Dawn school. He speaks to the officer ahead and then moves in. The office also goes ahead turning his back on you. Move behind him and when he goes behind a wall, subdue him and grab the Chipmunk outfit from the ground here. Dump the officer and go downstairs to where the target went. You should see the target talking to the police guy here and they both move away from you and look at weapons. Go from the right and move towards them while crouched - you can spot Birdie's file here -
Take it and move back a bit and see what happens. There's a vent here you can use to get out. After you go out, you'll need to search for the last target.
After you find him (use instinct if possible) follow him and you will see him taking a chef into an abandoned alley -
There's a cop guarding the area ahead. You need to use something and throw it behind the cop so that he turns around and you will be able to pass behind him crouched or better yet, you can even subdue him and dump his body so that he wouldn't be a problem later.
Now, move in and you will see the last target talk to the chef and eventually, the target will knock the chef unconscious. Now, move in behind the target slowly while crouched and kick him into the open pit behind him -
You will also find a piece of evidence nearby where the police officer was patrolling earlier -
Now, just exit chinatown and you'll be clear.
