I can imagine the ICA have had that trust issue 26 times with regards to Mark Faba… a constant source of embarrassment… but it happens. :wink:

Or that this ICA agent is what Faba refers to as “their assassin” which he will “steer into location” and that he plans to pose as that mission’s version of Mr. Ready to send them into an elevator with a sniper rifle.

Though that would mean… .that Faba takes a large fee for the entire ruse… gives the ICA a smaller fee since he would have “invited/hired” them… the ICA think they kill Pavel Zhukov… Faba collects money from both Knox and Zhukov.

Knox is unaware that Faba “sub-contracted” the Zhukov assassination.

If Zhukov is seen alive later… the ICA will take the blame since Faba can point at them and probably prove it.

Brilliant… except 47 heard the whole damn thing. :stuck_out_tongue:

I just saw all that about an assassin as being part of Faba’s nature: hire someone to purportedly kill the target, while Faba himself is an innocent bystander, or at maximum a dead criminal in a plan gone wrong.

I strongly dislike Mr. Ready. I tested his trustworthiness and it’s below zero. I had KO’d the second guard (and took his clothes) in the long stairway that Ready takes you through to go up. When Ready saw the body he was going to wake him up!!! And snitch on me, no doubt. I wish there was an option there to tell him, even though he didn’t want to know, the obvious. Instead I shot him in the face.
Then I quickly hit restart :-p

If it happens 27th time, I will give him emetic posion, then while he throws up, I will inject lethal posion, then before it kicks in I will drown him, then I empty my gun into his head, heart and other vitals, then I will place a remote duck on top of him and finally detonate it, before leaving mission.

So, which weapon did you guys choose to kill him with? I fell in love with the silenced shottie. His face received everything.

I get the impression that Sean Bean will return as a recurring elusive contract, possibly appearing once in every S2 location. He totally knew 47 was there to kill him.

I shot him in the back of the head while he was in the robotics lab.

If you’ve failed, you’ve failed. That’s the entire point of elusive targets. Consider this as a learning opportunity for next time :stuck_out_tongue:

I got Silent Assassin, yet the Terminus suit didn’t unlock @Travis_IOI

I feel a bit cheated. How is this even spotted, does not make sense

Funny part, as you can see i still got the SA challenge, and unlocked all the suits. Yet the scoring page claims i got spotted and 4/5 stars.

Nothing makes sense here.

I am afraid this “I can add flourish to my exit” concept is the downfall of many an assassin… Just learn from this my friend. :slight_smile:

“People die all the time… happens to everyone. Even to us.”

Sure thing. I just got home, will edit this comment with the Terminus pic.

Edit: Here’s the Terminus suit (pardon the graphics, my pc used to be better)

in-game (btw, Ansel thinks this game is H2: Silent Assassin lmao)

Isn’t that similar to The Sugreons ET in Hokkaido? You could skip the part of killing them via the virus injections wich violated the objectives completed part of the score but if you had everything else it still counted as SA. Sometimes the scoring in the game acts pretty weird.

I don’t know guys. You think he’ll be coming back from this? :laughing:

Except that the syringes were an optional objective, while the no spotted part is just mandatory for SA.

Here is the run. I call bullshit

I wanted to do something traditional and SO with a twist, but spent so long wandering around enjoying this ET that the final run felt a bit lacklustre

Also, not sure if it’s just Xbox but the proximity of the cars on the track seems to have an effect on some of the climbing prompts not appearing/lagging out.

Good ET – you can feel the amount of work put into it compared to some from S1. Hopefully more like this on the way (though with less spoiler-y handholding + gadget overkill).

Deadpool would. He can come back from a single drop of blood.
