Hitman Absolution Techniques Guide – How To Kill


Agent 47 is already a huge badass, but as you play the game, you’ll find out that he can become an even bigger badass as he improves his Techniques. Assassin Techniques in Hitman: Absolution are like upgrades for all aspects of being an assassin.

Some techniques give you faster reload speed while others improve aim and so on. There are a total of ten techniques, each with three ranks (so thirty in all). To unlock them, you must earn a high enough score in each chapter, and this is what they do:
