Hey guys, this has been months in the making and I’m happy to finally share it with you all here. I’ve gone through every single level and devised a contract for every single reasonable sniper location in the game (including Legacy) where you can kill 4-5 targets and still get Silent Assassin, all without leaving the sniper spot (apart from escaping, obviously).
They require all the skills you learn in the Sniper Assassin game mode: Bullets to lure targets, bullets to make witnesses look away, bullets to make things leak/explode/cause ‘accidents’ (But unlike Himmelstein, you’re allowed to get body found if it’s an accident in these contracts!).
If only IO allowed you to force players to pick a specific starting location (like Escalations), these contracts would be on another level; but they don’t, so it’s very important you read the briefing for each one so you know where to start and where to go.
All contracts are now on Xbox thanks to CamTheChest. @TheContractor was gracious enough to recreate all 16 of my PC contracts on PS4 (The guy’s an absolute legend!), so you guys can now play them in all of their glory and see if you can get Silent Assassin! PC players have already had a taste of the first ten when I posted them on Reddit last month. On PC the most popular ones have been “Sniper Mission: Sapienza Square”, “Sniper Ninja” (Speedrunners love that one), and “Sniper Assassin: Sapienza” (Nice easy one to start off with)
It would be awesome if you guys played some and let me know how you went. Some PC players have shown me their runthroughs and I’ve been amazed with the different tactics they’ve used to get Silent Assassin on some missions (Stuff I never even imagined), all using just their rifle and standing at the same single spot.
If you’re hopeless at sniping, I will post a video below explaining everything you need to know about sniper mechanics in Hitman 2, and if you still need help, comment here and I’ll give you a hint (For eg. on the Sgail mission you will need to know about the canon kill)
UPDATE: The latest patch (27-02-19) has made it impossible to get cannon kills using just a sniper rifle, meaning “Sniper Assassin: Isle of Sgail” will now have to be SA’d in a different way.
