I did this blind last night - as in, I’ve never set foot in Isle of Sgàil before - no research, no restarts, no minimap, no instinct.
Wow, this is an awesome map, and very daunting looking up to the heights of the castle from the starting spot! I felt like James Bond sauntering into the party in my tux and poking around.
After a lot of wandering I made my way through the sewers and crypt, picking up a caretaker uniform on the way. I finally found the target in the gallery, then went up to the mezzanine where I saw the handy chandelier hovering over the adventurer guy’s head. I knew this would be my method. As Belloq would certainly die in my assassination attempt, I gave up on the idea of SA and fibred and dumped the two NPCs on the mezzanine level who would hear my silenced pistol shot at the chandelier support.
The hit went to plan. On my way down, I suddenly remembered I had to get the notebook as well. Doh! I went over to where the bodies where being bagged to see if they dropped any clues. Sure enough, I found the chapel key and recalled I’d been up the chapel tower about 20 minutes earlier.
After a close shave with an enforcer, I knocked out the NPCs in the chapel and made a hasty exit out the nearby sewer entrance.
I was very pleased with that, and adored every second! I love waiting until there is an Elusive to do these Hitman 2 maps. It feels so pure.
