Hitman:Sniper Launch Trailer
I took the liberty in adding all 11 targets from the Montenegro map and their backstories (since they are only ever mentioned once and done in the actual game.) if anyone is interested.
Markus Krug – Welcome to Montenegro, 47! Glad to see your in position already. Your target this evening is Markus Krug, an advertising billionaire, who runs a lucrative sideline in people trafficking. Hes also the head of the Conclave. A powerful and influential network of criminals from around eastern Europe. Once he’s dispatched, the contract will end and we’ll begin extraction. Time to go to work, 47 good luck.
Krug is an advertising billionaire who runs a lucrative sideline in people trafficking along with his lover Basia Romanowski.
Krug will first start off sitting on a sofa in the living room. He will then get up and walk to the bedroom to make out with Romanaowski (the bedroom lights will be turned off), briefly stopping to look at the view. After this, he will proceed to meet Colin Ningbo and the latter’s lover in the room just above the car park nearer to the mansion. Krug will then meet Dr Ralph Ashbury and his girlfriend in another room. After a heated argument, he will kill Ashbury with a handgun and leave. Lastly, Krug will go up and meet Baltasar Cabasso, Omid Maklouf, Vincent Krug and Jaroslav Benak in the room next to the swimming pool.
If Romanaowski is killed, Krug will not kill Ashbury but rather sit on a chair next to him.
After the story mode is finished, Krug will become the primary target.
Basia Romanowski – Basia Romanowski. An ex high class prostitute, turned fashion model. Shes here at Krugs behest and is a key facilitator behind his people trafficking activities. How they met is uncertain, but it’s clear Krug thinks there’s an emotional attachment. She is a highly talented manipulator and should be considered extremely dangerous. She’s now a valid target, 47.

Cabasso will start off by playing pool in the billiards room. After a minute, he quits and goes to the poolside for a smoke. He will then go to the living room and sit on the couch.
If the player shoots the cue ball on the pool table, Omid Maklouf, his poker opponent, would drop his cue and accuse Cabasso of cheating. After arguing for a while, Maklouf would shoot Cabasso to death and walk off.
Dimitri Lefkos – Dimitri Lefkos is the ex fournier business development administrator for Greece. Suspected of pocketing over $50,000,000 in kickbacks before fleeing prosecution and going into hiding. He’s invested heavily in many conclave activities, including Markus Krugs human trafficking.

Dr. Ralph Ashbury – The name is Dr. Ralph Ashbury, head of research at biotech medical. He’s a brilliant man.

Tuulia Hernandez – Tuulia Hernandez. Used to work for the ICA before she went rouge three years ago, we’ve been looking for her ever since. She’s extremely smart and must be here this evening to remove one, or more targets for her own clientele.

Tuulia Hernandez is an rogue ICA agent, that Agent 47 is ordered to kill.
Hernandez will hang around the mansion on the right side of the map, constantly hiding from view. At the beginning, she is smoking behind the leftmost pillar. She will then walk to the rooftop and carry out her hit, even if Leftkos never appears.
It is unknown whether Hernandez was hired to kill Leftkos, or if it was a personal matter.
Even before she is classified as a target, Hernandez has the same character model and is considered an enemy.
Rogue Agent – Kevin Borts…”This is interesting, 47. That is Kevin Borts. Wanted by the ICA for over five years. He is a highly competitive gamer, skilled in many forms of gambling and gamesmanship and makes his money on wages with ridiculously high stakes. As a consequence, he has gained numerous enemies throughout the world. Several of whom, have put him on the ICA’s watchlist. Time to remove him from play, 47.

Little known fact: Kevin John Borts was the winner of our Hitman: Sniper tournament during PAX Prime 2014. One of his prizes was for him to be included in the game! This voice over from Diana ended up never being included in the game, but it’s still very funny when you know the story behind it!

If you eliminate Tuulia Hernandez before she eliminates her (and 47’s) target; Dimitri Lefkos, Kim Euston can later be seen standing next to Lefkos by the pool, in what seems to be her attempting to flirt with him.
According to Kim’s background, she is described as a ‘Black Widow’ dating and marrying rich lonely men. All three died in “mysterious circumstances” after their wills were revamped to include herself. It is also revealed that Dimitri Lefkos recently pocketed $50,000,000 in kickbacks… Going by Kim’s past, it is safe to say that Dimitri would have been her next target (if 47 weren’t to have intervened.)
The IZANAMI Sniper Rifle (read backwards) reads; “IM-A-NAZI”
According to Vincent Krugs Intel, the ICA view him as a security risk, as he is always posting his criminal exploits on social media sites. Interestingly, Vincent is shown to visit his laptop on numerous occasions throughout the duration of the level.
