I’ve found myself replaying the original story missions over and over, so I decided to create a suit of contracts that takes the original objectives from the 10 story missions and adds to them, for a bit more of a challenge. I thought I’d share them here for people to have a stab at! It should kill a long weekend
In each mission you have to eliminate the original targets, with extra objectives. I tried to make them progressively more challenging as you go through the game. For the most part, the contracts are suit only, unless the targets are prohibitively difficult as suit only.
These are all on PS4 and took quite a while to make. I tried to write mission briefings that built on the original briefings in a smart way; some expand upon the original briefings, while others suggest alternate realities and storylines.
Each target was carefully thought out in terms of story, difficulty and accessibility.
Contract ID: 2-01-1802460-49
This is an advanced configuration of your Cuban training mission. In addition to eliminating Jasper Knight, you are to kill KGB officer Cilas Netzke and three senior jet-plane engineers located on the base.
Complicating matters, you will need to assassinate Knight with an unsuppressed firearm and conduct the entire mission without using disguises.
For extra points, retrieve the vodka bottle and projector slides.
Well, you were complaining that standard training was too easy…
Contract ID: 2-02-0755960-49
Your target is FSB senior agent Max Decker, and four members of the shadowy spy agency IAGO: heads Dalia Margolis and Viktor Novikov, and supermodels Helmut Kruger and Madison Lang.
All five are in Paris and attending the Sanguine fall fashion show.

In addition, we have learnt that Sal Falcone, a private detective who has been on your trail since the Paris opera incident, is also in town. Eliminate him.
Finally, there are two prototype assassination viruses on site. Destroy one and retrieve the other.
In bocca al lupo,

Good luck, agent.

The Icon [Advanced]
Contract ID: 2-05-2436664-49
Two contracts have arrived in the town of Sapienza, Italy.
A Hollywood studio wishes to sabotage its rival’s forthcoming summer tent-pole, The Icon. To this extent, you are to eliminate star Dino Bosco and his agent, Sophia Wilde.
The second contract comes from heiress Gia Sagese and targets her three inept brothers, Baldassarre, Camillo and Giovani Sagese. They are working on the movie as DOP, SFX Supervisor and Sound Recordist, respectively.
Best of luck, agent.
A House Built on Sand [Advanced]
Contract ID: 2-07-5252100-49
French intelligence contractor Matthieu Mendola has gone rogue, stealing a database of valuable satellite data. He is in Marrakesh and intends to sell it to either Chinese MSS agent Kong Tuo-Kwang, who is hosting a party at the shisha cafe, or Algerian DRS agent Akil Ghazi Maroun, who is posing as an electrician.
Eliminate all three and retrieve the database.
Two additional low-level contracts: Thuggish loan shark Nimr’Arif Bahar, and an unfaithful husband named Sebastian Krogh.
Contract ID: 2-04-2639341-49
Our client, Silvio Caruso, has ordered a five-man hit. Your targets, in order of priority, are:
- Dr. Docciaborsa, a specialist who has arrived in town to treat Caruso’s sick mother. To be eliminated at all costs.
- Marco Abiatti, a childhood bully, and his right-hand man Roberto Mulo.
- Salvatore Bravuomo, a lawyer who recently parted ways with Ether.
- and, ahem, Baldassarre Arcuri, a kitchen-hand who Caruso says “butchered” his mother’s ragu recipe.
I shall leave you to prepare.
Comments and considerations welcome! @Torbjorn_IOI @IOI @Lasse_IOI @Travis_IOI - as there are, co-incidentally, 10 missions, perhaps you’d consider making this a sort of challenge pack or special suite of featured contracts?
Enjoy and have fun,
