Elusive Target #6 - The Twin (Re-Activation)


#1

Not sure if theirs a topic for this yet but the next Elusive is on Friday the 15th. https://hitman.com/en-gb/news/elusive-target-6-15th-july-#

Get ready for the sixth HITMAN Elusive Target!

At 14:00 CEST / 05:00 PDT on Friday 15th July, we’ll update the Elusive Target tile on the Featured Hub in-game and the contract will be live. Make sure you’re ready, because The Twin will only be in Sapienza for 72 hours and there won’t be any second chances.

To be absolutely clear on the start and end times for ET#6, for all locations, use these links: Elusive Target #6 Start Time and End Time.

The next Elusive Target is Dylan Narvaez, aka ‘The Twin’, who will be in Sapienza for 72 hours. His identical twin brother, Gonzales is also in Sapienza and must not be harmed in any way, or the contract will be cancelled. To complete this contract, you will need to choose your target with supreme care and come up with a plan to eliminate him without any collateral damage whatsoever to Gonzales.

The briefing videos for Elusive Target Contracts are of critical importance. Your contract handler, Diana, will give you specific information that will help you make sure to take down the right target. If you want to review the briefing at any time when the contract is live - even whilst you’re playing the contract itself, the HITMAN Companion is the ideal solution.

Remember that Elusive Target Contracts make changes to the existing locations and use advanced AI behaviour to create a more believable and challenging experience for players, who cannot rely on what they already know from the location or on any routines from the characters in the sandbox locations. Elusive Targets were designed to be difficult and ‘The Twin’ is the toughest one yet! Plan ahead, exercise caution and don’t take down the target until you’re absolutely sure you’ve got the right one. Good luck!

Elusive Target Rewards

For completing Elusive Targets, we have some very unique rewards that can be earned. For completing 5 Elusive Target Contracts, players will unlock the Hitman Absolution Signature Suit, with ICA tie pin and black leather gloves. For completing 10 Elusive Target Contracts, players will unlock the Blood Money Signature Suit, with gloves.

We want to make sure that the suit rewards you’ll earn through Elusive Targets are prestigious, and that they can be unlocked at a faster rate. But, if you wait too long and miss too many Elusive Targets, you won’t be able to unlock them all.

Here’s the Hitman Absolution Signature Suit with gloves that you will unlock after completing 5 Elusive Target Contracts:

More about Elusive Targets

An Elusive Target is the closest thing to the Hitman fantasy that we’ve ever created. Each one is a custom-created character with their own backstory and their own unique reason for being in that location. We call them Elusive Targets because they are added to an existing location for a limited time in real-time and you’ll only have one chance to take them down. If you kill them, that’s the way that you killed them. There are no do-overs and no second chances. When an Elusive Target leaves the game world, they never return.

As always, Diana will brief you with critical intel that will help you track down and kill the target. That intel is more important than ever because Elusive Targets do not appear as targets on the mini map or instinct. You’ll need to explore, find your target, study their movements and come up with a plan to eliminate them - all whilst playing. The pressure will be on when you’ve got the target in your sights. If you miss the shot and chaos breaks loose, you will need to have a plan B, because the save-game is disabled during an Elusive Target contract.

We know that Elusive Targets are not going to be easy, they were designed that way.

Need a recap? This is Elusive Targets in a nutshell:

Elusive Targets are added to the game for a limited time in real-time. They won’t return.

You only get one chance to take them down. If you die, you fail the contract and cannot retry it.

Elusive Targets do not show up on the in-game map or Instinct. You need to locate and identify them with limited intel.

Earn in-game rewards for completing multiple Elusive Target contracts throughout the season.

Every Elusive Target adds two unique challenges to the game; one ‘target’ challenge for eliminating the specific Elusive Target and a ‘Silent Assassin’ challenge for eliminating the target without being spotted and without any non-target casualties.

My first elusive target: The Twin
#2

Cool they were talking wether the twins were a real target or not on another thread :grin:


#3

I was beginning to doubt it’s legit-ness myself til I seen this :laughing: Kinda nervous on this one… Actual difficulty it seems.


#4

Cool idea. Let’s hope it’s challenging.


#5

First ET that I will miss because of the holidays :sleepy:


#6

Aw that blows man. :cry: Still, at least it ain’t the second miss


#7

This one can be a challenge for sure, looks like both is walking around in Sapienza, we have to kill the correct guy and somehow do it unnoticed…
I’m already afraid this can be the first failed elusive target for me :smiley:


#8

I’m hoping they don’t have some stupid giveaway… Like, the target has a yellow left shoe and a purple right shoe. Good luck 47


#9

I remember seeing somewhere he has a specific watch on I believe. I think this one will be fun, since all those explosive and cheap kills will we see constantly will pretty much be out the window. At least this will require us to get him alone first. Also, Sniper Assassin will def be open on this one just from the first pic if he is indeed walking down the street, just gotta make sure you hit the right one lol.

So, to confirm, if you at any point kill the wrong twin, contract is over and no restarts, right? I hope so.


#10

Looks like that for me too :confused: and it seems like a good one


#11

Yup as far as I’ve seen, you harm the wrong one and it’s contract failed. I can definitely see the sniper route being a good call.


#12

Agree :smiley:

For me it’s looks like wrong target kill results in failed:

To complete this contract, you will need to choose your target with supreme care and come up with a plan to eliminate him without any collateral damage whatsoever to Gonzales.

Appreciated greatly. Updating post with this now.

Now this sounds interesting. An elusive with an additional requirement. Also judging by the picture they are actually moving, huzzah.

Also, did anyone else catch that there is a companion app now? Just yesterday I was thinking that the game should have one. I’ve checked it out and it displays news updates as well as the current elusive target. Could be very useful


#17

They really need to speed things up, 1 elusive every 2 weeks ain’t enough.

I NEED MOAR


#18

I certainly did. Will be downloading it when I get home on the Wifi. Curious to how well it works, and exactly what info it gives.


#19

Wonder if that applies to subduing too. It would be hardcore if it’s the case.


#20

I think so yes. It’s up for debate if IO doesn’t weigh in, but I’m not touching the man.
