Feat not unlocking - Hitman 2 Marrakesh A House built on sand

Please see image. (As a new member I can only post one image but rest assured I have completed the mission stories too.) I have clearly done every challenge related to the feat that should have unlocked but it obviously hasn’t done so. I’m playing on steam. I’ve tried verifying cache files, uninstalling, playing on another PC and lowering settings to minimum. Anyone else got any ideas? It’s one of the last challenges in the game I’m yet to unlock and I’m trying to 100% this game

This seems to be a bug similar to the location discovery one, where progresses don’t count whenever you complete a mission story. Let me ask you a few questions:

  • Did you remember seeing a progress bar and a small image popped up on the top right corner of your screen when you completed a challenge/mission story?
  • Did you unlock the achievement “A Golden Opportunity” which is to complete all mission stories on AHBOS?

I suggest you to contact IOI employees like @Travis_IOI, they may be able to help you, cheers!

Edit: one added question: did you quit the mission and restart after you completed each challenge/mission story? Cause if you don’t enter the result page (where it shows you the challenge you unlock and your rating), it can become quite buggy.

Thanks for replying. There was a progress counter after each objective, but it was always showing 1/9 complete. “A golden opportunity” has been unlocked. I may have loaded a couple of times during the sequence, but I was also doing the exit objectives at the same time, so I was completing the mission as I was going along. Hopefully this additional info helps.

I see. There is nothing I can help you though. Because in my playthrough, the challenge was unlocked as usual. Anyway, glad to further understand your situation, and don’t forget to contact supports from IOI. I hope your problems will be eventually solved! :slight_smile:

I have the same problem!

When it happened to me for Mission stories in Isle of Sgail the solution was to turn on Story Guides and do them again.

Just tried that now. No luck. Challenge is really not wanting to unlock :frowning:

You can report it in HITMAN 2 Bug Thread…

I just did this entire thing on Xbox One like you and it’s just stuck at 1. Plus after every run through it says I’m “disconnected” from the server, but all my other achievements and unlocks save but this one doesn’t. To see if this affects others, I 100%ed The Icon and I got the mission mastery and the iconator unlock. I think this issue is only for a house built on sand. Also every single run through I did it complete all the way to the ending. Sometimes the notification bar would change from 1 to 2 but after the mission it would still be at 1


I actually did The Icon first and had no issues with it. I hope the devs read these forums as lots of people have posted about this so i reckon it needs to be fixed. I didn’t have any disconnection issues (although funnily enough I have had some since then which have since resolved themselves).

Same issue happens to me.

Same for me here. Did everything 100% and the mastery is stuck at 0/9…
Hope IOI will work on this for it to unlocK…

Same thing just happened to me. Any word on this yet?

Same on PS4.
Stuck at 2/9.
All Mission Stories and Assassination Challenges are completed.

Hitman 2 is plagued with bugs.
Hopefully, IOI puts some hands on fixing things.
New content is great and all, but if the quality is not improved, this may become my last Hitman game.

Dealing with feats not unlocking as well.
I’ve done Silent assassin, Suit only about 4 times without getting credit for it either. (imgur album because apparently I’m not allowed to post more than one image.)


I just want you to know that both of these issues (Final Test SASO & Mission Mastery Feat in AHBoS) are tracked and being worked on. We’re close to a solution and I hope to see them in a future update. Possibly not the next one, but the team are on it already.

It’s worth pointing out that they’ve been on the team’s radar before today and it’s only just now that I am getting round to giving an update.


Killing the targets with sniping them seems also bugged.
I did a suit only run with the sieger 300 in my briefcase and I killed Kong Tuo-Kwang with a bullet from the 300, sure I needed to change my disguise to lure Matthieu Mendola in a lonely place to give him a bullet from the 300 too. But after leaving the mission the feat doesn’t unlock.

There is also a guard that can get stuck in the backroom (the backdoor to the street, where you have to find the key to go through the door) of the cafe.

Here is what I did:
I’ve tried to lure Mendola with coins into this room, sure he’ll ask somebody to see what that was.
But sometimes a near guard outside this room from the cafe get suspicious too and coming to look what’s wrong. I reloaded this moment a few times and every second reload seems to have that one guard that is stuck in that backroom. I’ve waited a few minutes but the only thing the guard is reacting to is when I walk into the room (with my suit) and the guard is becoming suspicious. Reloading again will remove the guard from this place, but reloading again and the guard will stand there again.

Thank you for letting us know Travis. Can’t wait until they’re fixed :+1:t3:
