So, I played through Hitman Legacy and 2 in the last two odd weeks since I bought the game; decided to just work through the narrative and then go back to earlier maps for Mastery.
Right now I’m focusing on Isle of Sgàil so I can learn the map well enough and hit my first ET. I’m really enjoying it - as I’ve enjoyed most of the other missions - but have also resolved myself to sometimes loading earlier saves for Challenges that overlap or have different requirements via the same path/route/strategy to save myself the slog of going through all the drama/effort of some Challenges again (I’m looking at you, Janus funeral garb!).
What’s great about this is - since all Challenge unlocks are stored online - you don’t have to complete the mission after every successful Challenge to unlock it and gain XP/Mastery - as I’m sure all of you know…
And - yes - this is preference and there are no rules for or against this, so maybe the question is moot, but per the subject line:
“Is it unsportsmanlike to reload saves for easy Challenge unlocks?”
