I disagree. Don’t get me wrong, I personally much prefer the “Silent Assassin” approach, but like @Urben said, Hitman is the type of game that can be played either way, so I think having some targets armed would be a nice touch, especially for those who like to run and gun it.
That being said, again— I don’t think all targets should fight back, not all targets personalities are like that. Plus it’s not like all targets in the past fought back either. To name a few that didn’t
- Campbell Sturrock
- Odon Kovacs
- Frantz Fuchs
- Charlie Sidjan
I just think we should have a couple that DO. So what if they only shoot back like regular guards would. That’s the point. Just to stand their ground and return fire.
