Contract Title: Santa’s Shutter Shutdown
Briefing:
Santa is soon surfacing in Paris and the paparazzi are preparing posthaste! This pack of photographers are acting as proficient Kris Kringle-catchers, combing the capital’s corners, craving candid captures of the crimson-clad Christmas icon! Swiftly silence these shutterbugs before they snag snapshots of Santa, jeopardizing the jolly giant!

Brief Description:
All four targets are photographers or cameramen at the fashion show. A bit of a tricky contract, all targets start in the crowd entering front door. They are always around people, never isolating themselves, so players will need to be creative to get them alone. Personally I found that if you just emetic all of them, you can still get out in about 2:30, but I’m curious to see how people could crack it. Rather than trying to solve a mystery, I interpreted the theme as trying to KEEP the mystery of Santa under ‘wraps’.

Contract Title: Cosmic Christmas Calamity

Platform: Xbox

Submitter Name: Wigglyweevil211

Briefing: Mission log: In a cosmic twist on holiday traditions, “the calamity” unfolds as Christmas goes into full swing. Causing death and destruction with red white and green all over the walls. We’ve sent out our best man to retrieve and recover the lettert openers of comic calamity, able to rip through time and space, we cannot allow these monsters from the outer regions get a hold of them, or all spirit will be lost. The magic of Christmas has no bounds, even in the vastness of space.

Brief Description: Since I try to make contracts with unique or fun twists to them i thought why not go full futuristic with a space theme! 47 is a trained space marine amongst the stars and has been sent back in time to stop “the calamity” ripping a hole through the universe, unfortunately 47 cannot be seen on camera or else the space time continuum will be destroyed! Enjoy this nice and fun contract, alot lf starting and exit locations can be used in a mix to make some fun routes.

Contract Title: Boom and Boom In Our Wonderland

Platform: Xbox

Submitter Name: Wigglyweevil211

Briefing: The heart of Christmas is all about love! Can’t we be sweethearts? Why don’t we fall in love. Right from the start, you’re the guard i’m dreamin’ of. Don’t you know i really love you so. We’d set off boom and boom in our wonderland. The map would be our own. I’d make love to you, lovin’ kisses too. You’d be mine alone. Can’t we be sweethearts?

Brief Description: The key message of Christmas outside of religion is Love and kindness to one and all! So i thought why not combine a Christmas theme with a Kind and aodred map with a classic song about love! Enjoy this easy but challenging and route heavy puzzle mystery contract, how could you eliminate two targets with explosives in public? Well that’s for you to figure out. Enjoy!

Title: Boom Box Mystery
Platform: PS4
Location: Haven Island
Submitter: Steynkie69

Map:

  1. Vetrova (roaming)
  2. Aruna (jet ski roaming)
  3. Sai Parekh (guard, roaming)
  4. Preston (in pool)

Briefing:
During a Christmas party, a mysterious guest asked Vetrova and her friends what supernatural gift they would like. All said they would like to turn invisible. Later, each received a small gift wrapped in black, and told to open it in private. They all returned to their huts, there was a loud BOOM… and they were never seen again.
Can you solve the mystery, 47?

Description:
Same scene, one different target, and this time 4 explosive device kills, SONKO.
With only 3 explosives, you will have to do a mystery double kill somewhere. I had loads of fun with this!
Tested it several times, and I got SA in 2:46 mins.

Suggested screenshots:



P.S: This screenshot was just for fun, not how I really did it.
Note that if you pop an explosive INTO the jet ski, it will count as an “any method” kill.

I would like to submit two puzzle contracts on 47th post in this page :crazy_face:

SO_banner

Contract ID: 2-28-0195244-31

Contract Title: Strange Objectives

Platform: Playstation

Submitter name: Zubin47

Briefing:

Agent 47 is assigned a contract with strange objectives. For some of the tasks, he may use the mysterious gravitational anomalies in the area. Good Luck solving this case !

Brief Description:

This contract is a compilation of multiple puzzle objectives. I would not describe it, but I would love to see people solve these sets of puzzle. For casual players, you can solve them one by one. For speedrunners, you need to do multi-tasking, setting up the pieces to solve it in less time. This puzzle is tested from multiple starting locations, and you can do it without bringing anything into the planning and from the first starting location. The image suggested is the redacted image of the mysterious gravitational anomaly spots mentioned in the briefing.

Suggested image:

Target Description:

  • Flynn Sharp is the Photographer in the Garden area
  • Ray White is the only guard in the Graveyard area
  • Richard Bell is one of the two standing guards on the ground floor of the Mansion Sitting Room where Gregory and Emma are present
  • Olly Marshall is one of the two guards standing at the main gate near the main road starting location.
  • Aaron Ford Jr is the lawyer at the first floor office, near Zachary’s room.

Contract Title: The Shooting Star

Platform: Playstation

Submitter name: Zubin47

Briefing:

A mysterious shooting star fell on the island. The meteorite has highly valuable minerals, and treasure hunter Blake is on this island in a quest to uncover this rare relic. However the artefact has a curse of astral projection, where the owner’s soul is parted away when unconscious and kills it body.
Clue: Blake’s Treasure Map - hitmaps.com

Brief Description:

In this contract, you have to find the only starfish on the map. For this, I want to credit and hint at hitmaps.com in the briefing. Next, you need to pacify and get Blake’s disguise, and then melee him. But for this, you need to wake him up, and you will lose the Silent Assassin rating. Blake runs to get his new clothes. As the image suggests, you can use chloroform to knock him safely and wake him up. This process might take time, so in the meantime, speedrunners can focus on the other four targets. To block the taser trick on the moving guards,I put the starfish throw at them (shooting stars). These guards are the bodyguards following Zoe and Sofia Washington, so use the main mission stories to move the guards to strategic locations. The other two civilian targets are easy with any method or disguise. This contract is tested and has many possible combinations of starting locations and exits.

Suggested image:

Target Description:

  • Blake Nathaniel is the tresure hunter found in Gallery (third floor)
  • Aaron Barlow is bodyguard of Sofia Washington
  • John Doe is bodyguard of Zoe Washington
  • Christy Welch is the harpist at the stone circle (third floor)
  • Scott Dixon is a npc who walks around between Lower Courtyard and Stronghold Showroom (first floor)

Contract Title: Revenge of the Jolly Chimps
Briefing:
Chirstmas is in danger from a gang of Scrooges! They are ripping apart Jolly Chimps and burning them so that Santa doesn’t have any to give out on Christmas! We’ve been hired by the big man in red to deal with these merry misologists before Christmas is ruined!

Brief Description:
This takes place mostly in the biker garage. One person is breaking apart Jolly Chimps and another is throwing them in the incinerator. The garage is filled with vehicles you can use or there are two propane tanks at the spawn. The third person is across on another roof, but its somewhat difficult to get an angle on him with the sniper rifle and he has another guard nearby. There isn’t any good smuggle location nearby so for a good time, the player will probably need to use the unsilenced one on the second floor.

Contract Title: The Last Gift Under The Tree

Platform: Xbox

Submitter Name: Wigglyweevil211

Briefing: “Those security guards.” “Huh?” “They’re so dreamy.” “I-I don’t think they’re right for you Océane.” “Why? They’re so strong, nothing could stop them. Erm, and anyway I can like who I like Tobias.” “Y-yeah, don’t worry about the thing in your apartment, it’ll be gone b-before you get home.” “What? Anyway, night Tobias. Look, enjoy yourself, you never know, you might find your special someone tonight.” “Yeah. N-night Océane.”

Brief Description: Being as anti social and frightening as we come, Tobias Reiper naturally has a tough time trying to find that special someone to share love across the holidays. His best friend and long time crush was talking to Tobias about how handsome the guards are, confirming his melancholic theories.
Alone and distressed, 47 attends the Sanguine Christmas Collection event of the year to try and lift his spirits, envy gets the best of the worst as it goes and unfortunately 47 is forced against his love to eliminate the competition, out of spite, Océane won’t fall for him either way.
Anyway, enough sad stuff, I hope you have fun on this route heavy contract that’s basic but great to play and try to get a better time on! Enjoy.

I remade my Paris contract in Holiday Hoarders, since thats now an option lol. Mostly an aesthetic difference.

Name of Contract: Keep the Change, Ya Filthy Animal!

Contract ID: 3-36-4820523-69

Platform: Xbox

Location: Paris


Description:
Perform a personal favour for leader of the Angels with Filthy Souls, Kevin McAllister, and eliminate Harry and Marv before they finish robbing the Palais de Walewska in Paris on Christmas Eve. Santa will provide the disguise, weapon, and exit.

Why it should be featured:
Purely a self-indulgent contract, as I made it with my 9 year old son who loves Home Alone, with title and briefing referencing the fake movie in the movie (though more of homage than fake).

I made two versions, one where you use the Holiday Axe Santa will drop when knocked unconscious and you will need to use the fireplace, as hinted in the briefing. The other takes the contract title literally, where you will need to use the throw glitch. The second is for enjoyment only.

Coin Throw Kill: 3-36-7329395-69


I’ll provide an image shortly, working through a couple of ideas.

Edit: Image Suggestion

Referencing the popular scene of Kevin attacking the Wet Bandits with paint cans on the stairs (propane flasks in place of the cans, and coins for the Micro Machines).

Here’s a couple of alternative images, using the coins.

Contract Title: Imposter Elves
Briefing:
We have tracked down Santa’s workshop in the icy glaciers of the North Pole. Three wanted fugitives have had cosmetic surgery to look like the elves, where they are now blending in among Santa’s helpers. Your goal is to locate and eliminate these imposter elves before they slip away forever.

Brief Description:
My last second Hokkaido submission, an accident contract with a bit of a puzzle. Heita Ozawa and Jason Portman are very easy targets who are there to make the player find angles and timings, Takuma Fukui is the tricky target. Even though he is a guard, he will not pick up tasers since he is escorting a VIP. The fastest way to get him (I think) is with the falling icicle in the courtyard, but it is difficult to get him directly underneath it. You can also just emetic him, but he will take a long time to get to a bathroom. This way, its still easy for casual players, but tricky for speedrunners. There are multiple viable starting locations, including starting with only a sniper from the ninja start.
