So far I’m a little disappointed by the lack of new gear in hitman 2. The Taser and micro stuff is cool but a lot of items are just the exact same as the one in hitman 1 but with a sticker on it. I almost always end up bringing the lockpick and coin. I have some suggestions:
-remote spark device - place next to gas lamp, oil spill, or propane tank to detonate remotely
-water ballon - portable puddle
-Proximity knock down device - this would not knock them unconscious, just to the ground like a leg shot. This would send them into a panic or a target into lockdown without panicking anyone around them like an explosion would. It could also allow 47 to knock them out if he’s nearby, and separate guards (like any suspicious item)
Atomizer - single use melee only device which kills and disintegrates (hides body) an npc. It sounds super op so to balance it out it should be super loud and take a long time to fully hide the body. It would leave behind a pile of ash which would act like a blood stain on master difficulty.
Some of these would probably be way to powerful and need testing so it’s understandable that they wouldn’t all make it into the game, but there really ought to be more cool gadgets than there is and it’s not like there aren’t any real options. Hopefully a developer reads this, thanks if you do! If anyone else has any cool ideas I’d love to see it here!
