Hitman : The Watchers
Mission 1: Avarice
Ray Lewis II (The Hoarder)
Landon Hendrix (The Collector)
(Optional) Additional Objectives:
Obtain the computer virus hard drive
Good Evening 47,
Your destination is the capital city of Scotland, Edinburgh, where our client has requested the immediate termination of his longtime business rival, Ray Lewis II. Lewis is the multi-millionaire CEO of the city’s fastest-growing casino franchise, “Coin-Grabber Inc.” However, his insatiable greed has caused him to turn to more…skeptical ways of accumulating wealth. Lewis plans on using a highly unstable computer virus to enter other corporate CEO’s bank accounts and steadily drain their savings into his. As one of said CEO’s targeted by the scheme, the client has resorted to contacting the ICA to avoid inevitable bankruptcy. He also requested you eliminate the virus’ creator; professional hacker and 3-time ex-convict, Landon Hendrix. The two will both be laying low at one of their casinos in the northern Edinburgh area. Lewis will be found in the upper floors, most likely guarded by heavy security, while Hendrix will be found around the first and second levels, hiding in plain sight. However, he might be identifiable by his voice, reported to be gravelly due to smoking. Anyways, it’s time to pull the plug on this operation. Good Luck, 47.
End Cutscene: Close Ties 1 week earlier. Lewis is in his office, talking on the phone to an unknown person on the other end. He’s mentioning certain things, such as the state of his company, his finances, but most importantly, the companies he plans to target with Hendrix’s virus. As the conversation going on, his gets gradually more frustrated with the unknown caller. He ends the call by bringing up something about the Consulate in Marrakesh, before angrily hanging up and sitting down in his chair with his head in his hands.
Mission 2: The Weak Point
Eva Strandberg (The Supplier)
Good Morning, 47.
Shortly after our previous contract in Scotland, we managed to receive some particularly interesting files from Lewis’ computer. It appears that Lewis wasn’t specifically going to use his stolen money for himself. In fact, he is merely a pawn in a much bigger operation we uncovered. We haven’t much to work with at the moment, be from what we have found out, the money was meant to be gathered to fund resources for an international crime syndicate known as “The High Kingdom.” Unfortunately, stopping Lewis’ plan isn’t going to do much to stop their growth, but we thought of a way we could slow it down. Eva Strandberg, Claus Strandberg’s daughter and munitions expert, has been identified as running several of The High Kingdom’s weapon manufacturing depots. However, it seems that there is no real way to render them inoperable by conventional means, so we need to stop the person running them all. Eva is rumored to be doing an annual inspection on one of her factories in Siberia and will most likely be surrounded by armed guards at all times. This could be our only chance to strike.
Once you’re done with the mission, we will take it from there.
Good luck, 47.
End Cutscene: We Can See You The day after. Diana, 47 and several more ICA employees are at the now empty weapon factory, however, the camera doesn’t move at all and no noise can be heard but faint static. The camera zooms out to reveal they are being watched on a CCTV camera by two people, covered by darkness. They both talk to each other about Eva’s assassination and how the ICA is behind it. After a brief conversation, one of them hold up a walkie-talkie to their ear and says:
“We know who they are now. Find them and bring me the handler. Alive. The ICA will know our strength”
The two people get up and walk off screen.
Mission 3: The Plot Thickens
Renier De Waal (The Hidden)
Aziza Becker (The Escape Artist)
Zander Joubert (The Infiltrator)
Port Elizabeth, South Africa
Good Morning, 47.
One of our clients has issued us a contract located in Port Elizabeth, where he requests you to dispatch three targets. Your main objective is to eliminate Renier De Waal, a former MI5 agent who has a notorious track record for unnecessary collateral damage, going as far as to slaughter entire families who get in the way of his objectives, one of these families belonging to our client. De Waal was eventually fired and jailed for his actions after 5 years, but recently escaped prison with the help of his two friends, Aziza Becker, master thief and “owner” of some of the worlds most priceless artifacts, and Zander Joubert, professional spy and a retired member of Sean Rose’s militia. However, there’s one catch. De Waal has went out of his way to have all personal data of his destroyed, including any pictures of him past or present. You may have to gather information from Becker and Joubert, as they have close personal ties to De Waal. This may be quite the challenge, but nothing you can’t handle.
Good Luck, 47.
Diana talks to 47 rarely during the mission. Not even description for mission stories show up. It’s heavily implied the Diana was taken by members of The High Kingdom.
As you are about to leave the mission, Lucas Grey (who was hired by the ICA after the events of HITMAN 2) contacts you. He tells you that Diana has been kidnapped by three High Kingdom mercenaries who escaped by boat. Where the are is unknown but he tells you that he has people tracking their location.
Lucas Grey and 47 are talking to each other in an office about Diana’s kidnap. Strangely however, 47 is visibly worried, which is unlike him as he was created with no emotion. In the middle of the conversation, Lucas gets a call and says that it’s from one of the hackers that has been tracing the location of the boat. He leaves, leaving 47 alone in the office. After thinking to himself for a while (flashbacks or something idk), he gets up, and follows Lucas.
Mission 4: Subterranean Shackles
Zachary Doyle (The Brawn)
Naomi Guerrero (The Brains)
Naval Prison Base, The Chilean Sea
Our elite group of white hat hackers has managed to pinpoint the location where the kidnappers have docked. The three High Kingdom mercenaries have taken Diana to an underwater prison camp, designed to be undetected by any aerial means, making it relatively unheard of until now. Further research shows that members of The High Kingdom have abducted members of several other high ranking corporations, ranging from Kronstadt, to CICADA, and even some of the few remaining operatives of Providence. But that’s enough of that, our mission now is to rescue Diana. Intel shows that she is currently being interrogated by two of the three kidnappers we had a run-in with earlier; Zachary Doyle, and Naomi Guerrero. We need to eliminate the two of them before any severe physical or mental damage is to be inflicted on Ms. Burnwood. However, the high levels of security and their strict rules against trespassers could pose a challenge. Given your track record of successful hits, I suspect this won’t be an issue. Just get in and out as quick as possible.
Good Luck, Agent.
You’ll have 20 minutes to complete the mission. If the time expires, Diana will be killed and you will fail the mission.
I’ll work on it later.
