Item-wise the trilogy has been a little letdown, ngl.
Not for those that starts the trilogy at Hitman (2021), but for those of us that started with 2016, there really hasn’t been much new items. Take the Hackl Leviathan for instance: At first glance it seems to be better than the Sieger 300 Ghost, right?
Well it is not. Turns out the sounds from the shots are pretty much the same when it comes to being detected by NPCs, together with recoil, slow-mo time and ammo pool the Sieger 300 Ghost is starting to leave a trail for the Leviathan to follow, even though the Leviathan has one additional perk.
What is the meaning of this?
Sadly it cheapens the experience. To me; cool, useful, and serious items are quite definite when rating map-replayability.
Instead we get tons of reskins, we get weapons that are presented as better but aren’t, we get items that can only be used once (I’m looking at you Crystal Ball, and you Snowball.)
