First of all, for what reason, especially following the parameters, would you need to be carrying 5 screwdrivers and 4 wrenches? One of each should be enough for anything you’re about to do. Secondly, it is possible, and officers of intelligence agencies around the world can confirm this, to hide something upward of around 80 or so weapons on yourself at any given time, with variations in that number based one what clothes are being worn. 47, master that he is, has perfected this and knows how to hide numerous items on his body. Hiding his gun and fiber wire is no trouble, especially since his fiber wire isn’t even found in a frisk, and he could just carry the explosive rubber ducky in his pocket since it’s disguised as an innocuous item.
How do you get the sawed off shotgun onto the map in the first place? You bring it in a briefcase or have ICA drop it off in one of theirs. So you would leave it in the briefcase when traveling. Frisk ahead? Avoid that, find another path, or leave the briefcase behind. Need to climb? Put the shotgun on your back and climb, then be stealthy and stay out of sight until you’ve used it for what you want to use it for. Picking up a large rifle found on the map? Well, you shouldn’t be doing that anyway if you’re following the parameters, and shouldn’t be packing the sawed off shotgun either, for that matter, but still, use stealth to stay out of sight, or take a gloved disguise of someone who can open-carry, such as those found in Whittleton Creek or Isle of Sgail. Plus, most maps have a briefcase somewhere that can be picked up and used, so use that to transport such a weapon. Crowbar? See the answer to the previous question.
The people on the map will assume such a strange person is mentally challenged and shrug before moving on, or is perhaps is super lost, or is maybe making some kind of sociopolitical point in protest of something. And if those explanations don’t do it for you, then see step 1 of the parameters, which essentially states that if you’re going to play ridiculously, then you’re not actually following the HPP to begin with and so they don’t apply to how you’re playing right then.
Because following the rules as stated would avoid such nonsense to begin with, and I have enough faith in the average Hitman player to understand that a lack of mentioning such scenarios specifically does not necessarily permit their usage.
Not at all what I stated; not even close.
Never try to outwit my logic with a “gotcha” question. I’m better at them than most.
