Finally after asking for it since 2012 we got our briefcase back!
Beautiful, practical, deadly looking when caring it, but looks way too small to fit a Sniper Rifle in it.
We can argue that it’s not important, that we should be happy that it’s finally here.
But I ask, seeing how beautiful this games look and how many detailed buildings, streets, objects and nature. Is it too much to add a more realistic aesthetic to the size of the briefcase?
One member here mention some time ago that it might be due to a bug it may occur with the animation, maybe.
But back then we only saw things from the trailers and live streams.
Today we have the game in our hands and it’s revealing now to see that this idea is not that case.
In fact the animation didn’t even changed since the revealing when it was still in BETA fase.
The animation only works with the Snipers from Hitman 2. What ever Sniper you unlock from the Season 1 missions won’t have any kind mounting animation what so ever. 47 will just open the case, extract the gun like a magician extracts a bunny from his hat and then close the lid.
It is practical if you are in a hurry, but when you look at it you realize how bad it looks.
Here are some screens I took earlier today showing the size of the case comparing it with 2 Snipers and a handgun.
As you can see, the briefcase has a perfect fit for one silenced pistol like it was shown in the first Cutscene in the game.
This is how long the briefcase should look to hold at least the WA2000 in it. It’s a 90 cm long case
