in the Hitman storyline Agent 47 is consistently recognized as the the world's deadliest, most discrete and skilled assassin.

but isn't that subjective.. to say 47 is the world's greatest assassin, its not like it can be proven.. its all a subjective opinion

so who labels him being the best, the other assassins in the field, ICA etc.

Imagination a Spartan (seen in the movie 300 and in history) they were born to fight making them the best at it. 47 was cloned to kill. That's all he has ever known and was bred for it. Making him the best at it.

This is an amazing insight. Hopefully one of the IO devs who reads this forum will pass it on to the marketing department so they can stop referring to Agent 47 as the world's deadliest, greatest, most awesome, etc. assassin.

His new tagline will be "a pretty good assassin".

it is in many danes mentallity to be understated- so a lottery winner would express his joy by saying something along the lines of "yeah, it could have been worse".

a very cool example i think is carlberg's sign next to townhall square in central copenhagen - "carlsberg - probably the best beer in town"

my foreign friends usually get a chuckle from that, especially americans and similar minded who are daily bombarded about how all products is the best thing since sliced bread.

No, it's not subjective. He is the greatest assassin, no other assassin has got a better track record than him. Even 'The Franchise' and the FBI admit it. Dr. Ortmeyer supposedly made superior assassin clones than 47, and 47 still wiped them all out. There is no comparison of his might.

If you recall back to A Dance with the Devil from Hitman: Blood Money, 47 had a shootout in a soundproofed room with one John Maynard, another of the world's best assassins. Maynard wanted to prove that he was the number one assassin. However, of course 47 shot him dead and thus 47 was officially the best assassin in the world - after all, his DNA is combined of 5 of the greatest evil masterminds alive + augmented beyond that. He even killed all of Ort-Meyers "superior" clones because he had free will. Nobody has his track record, and he is probably the only one who can complete a mission completely unseen.

Of course 47 is the World's Greatest Assassin, he has never left a trail of Evidence to prove that he even exists. If 47 sometimes gets caught on camera he always manages to cover his tracks and even steal the camera evidence. Even in Blood Money 47 is referred to as an urban Legend. Some Assassin's Creed fans say Ezio is the Greatest Assassin( :lol:) but he can really be when he's Dead ;)

Nobody we ever match 47 as he is literally THE WORLD'S GREATEST ASSASSIN!

IO has created an alternate version of reality, a fictional world which bears quite a lot of similarities to the real world. Only in the Hitman universe, 47 is the world's greatest assassin when judged by the real world's standards. In the same way, i could write a fiction novel about a turtle that moves at the speed of light and call it the fastest creature ever.

I think the reason why 47 is the best assassin in the world not only because his actions speak way louder than his words but because of his identity.

He was created and not really born. He was trained all his life to be like that. He looks like a normal human but his history proves otherwise. I mean, he was born from 5 DNA's of the world's best killers with Ortmeyer's secret recepie for the PERFECT assassin. I guess you can call him the best Assassin because of his background and because of what he has done.

The man literally took it against the russian mafia (killed some mobs), the Italian mafia, the vice president of the USA in the white house, some of the world's best killers and his own brothers who were supposedly better than him. Yeah and he lived to tell it. B)

"Agent 47 is the world's greatest assassin. Possibly."

Doesn't have quite the same ring to it, does it? :lol:

In short, 47 has assassinated everyone he needed to assassinate. If that doesn't make him the perfect killer and the ultimate assassin i don't know what would.

47 has assassinated a Vice President in the White House, 3 high ranking Russian generals, 3 notorious terrorist brothers, a state's witness at his own home while surrounded by FBI bodyguards, several police chiefs, several leaders of various crime syndicates and multiple assassins that have come after him.

If there's anyone else in the Hitman universe who has done that, then let me know because they deserve their own fucking game too!

Well, one could argue that it was either A) The 97% success rate was between the handler and operative and not the assassinations and B) missions such as "The Setup" were included in that statistic.
