Hitman Absolution Challenges Guide – Grand Master

By   /   Nov 20, 2012


Being a Hitman can be a rather boring job sometimes. Agent 47 is already such a badass that enemies simply faint when they see the light glinting off his cranium. So as a result he has to find other things to do that will give him a bit more of a challenge, something to waste the time on so to speak.

Most people in this position would go watch a movie or something, but Agent 47 instead decides to give himself arbitrary restrictions during his missions.

Jokes aside, each stage in the game has a set of optional objectives that give you bonus brownie points if you abide by them during the mission.

Objectives such as finding all the disguises in the stage or collecting all the pieces of evidence are common to all stages, but there are other level specific objectives, and you can find them all here:
