Location: Chongqing:

I opened this shortcut by the inner courtyard in Chongqing.

But this challenge for shortcut to the inner courtyard didn’t pop:


As I have yet to open this shortcut:

But this challenge somehow inexplicably popped:

After opening this unopened door the inner courtyard challenge finally popped. So these two challenges are mixed up. Not a big deal, but still wrong, and potentially confusing.

Description: Disguises and suits from HITMAN 1 use a different, older version of 47s head and face. This doesn’t happen with HITMAN 2s and 3s disguises and suits including the Signature Suit.

Platform: PC

Location: Everyone, from 1 - 3

Description : Can’t KO NPCs that are laying on the floor, knocked over with no-KO items or shots in the foot, that they fall on the floor. It was a, from me much loved, gameplay feature in Hitman 1 and 2 that is now not possible anymore. Not sure if removed intentionally or a bug.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Shoot someone in the foot so that they fall on the floor
  2. Run to their head
  3. No “Q to KO” option appears.

Frequency : All the time.


ISSUE 1: Stuttering/performance issues

Platform: PC, Digital

Location: all

Description: There seems to be a bug when the game will pin one of the CPU threads to 100% causing horrible stutter in the process on a high-ish end PC. Game normally runs around 100fps but while stuttering GPU usage goes as low as 3% and fps can go into single digits in extreme cases. If you wait for some time the game usually recovers while looking at the same scene so it does not seem to be a hardware performance issue.
Spec: R9 5900X, 64GB ram, RTX 3080 game installed on NVME SSD. All settings maxed out, Variable rate shading Off, 4k resolution, HDR on, VRR display.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Start the game and observe CPU usage
  2. After some time game starts stuttering, sometimes drops one frame, sometimes many more, GPU usage goes down, one of the CPU cores gets pinned at 100%
  3. Stuttering goes away on it’s own even in the same location and view
  4. Stuttering is often followed by the ‘Connecting’ window but not always.

Frequency: random, sometimes after hour of game play, sometimes immediately. every 10-20min on average.

ISSUE 2: Game Lockups

Platform: PC, Digital

Location: all

Description: After the latest patch game locks up on loading screens. The game locked up on me during loading screen after finishing the Dartmoor map and during loading a save file on the Berlin map.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. occurs randomly on loading screens.

I’ve got the Xbox one Hitman 3 Deluxe edition on disc, successfully transferred my Hitman 1/2 progress, but every time I try to load the game I get a save game error and every time I retry it continues to fail.

I’m signed in to my Xbox profile and connected & it worked last night, but now it does not. There is approx 99Gb of free space.

The game plays fine but the autosave also fails and it is impossible to save or load anything.

I’m new to the forum and can’t see it anywhere else and it says the servers are online.

To replicate this issue, I guess you just need to load it on the Xbox and press A to play with the profile logged in.

Description of both problems:

  1. I know this problem is known, but just for the record - I have problem with accesing Requiem Pack DLC, that I brought on Steam (actually I pre ordered Hitman 2016 and got this pack if I remember correctly). I did had this pack in Hitman 2 as well.

Hi, this is my first post on this forum. I noticed several bugs on Hitman 3 on Stadia’s version (game 3.10.0/ server 8.1.0):

  • Textures not loading in Chongqing
  • Wrong buttons display (I am using an Xbox gamepad)
  • Mission stories not loading (I am wearing the proper disguise and not able to talk to Chen Ting)
  • Finding the Maelstrom in Dartmoor

Thanks for seeing and hopefully fixing @Travis_IOI @IOI
