Take the time to learn a level
Don’t feel bad about not knowing what to do. Much of your initial time in a level will be spent digging around, learning the layout, where you can and can’t go, and just figuring out things. It’s a great way to learn the layout, explore rooms, find mission stories, and get a lot of information and items that you can use later.
Use save locations! If you’re about to try and make a bold move, doing a custom save before entering and making your move will save you having to replay the last ten minutes. Being able to reload quickly leads to more experimentation, which means you’ll try more and learn more.
Subtitles can make Hitman 3 much more convenient to play, especially if you are a visual learner. When active, it may be easier to enter and remember important information such as tasks, character names, and mostly the passwords you will need to enter later.
Import your Hitman 1 and 2 progress
If you played Hitman 1 or 2 on the same platform family as your copy of Hitman 3, you can use an interactive IO account to import your progress and unlock in 3. This can be very useful as there are many unlocks. are incredibly useful to have in levels, like the Lockpick.
You’ll want to do this BEFORE you start any Hitman 3 content, as new content will affect things in this part of the game.
Do the mission stories first
There are literally hundreds of ways to kill your targets in Hitman 3, to the point that it could be confusing how you are supposed to do it. It’s best to find and track the main mission stories first – they offer the most directed ways to kill your target, giving you the tools you need to do it along the way.
Mission stories will also introduce you to the target’s routines, quirks, and manners, which will come in very handy if you want to go back and try more experimental ways of taking them down in a more complex and / or entertaining way.
Don’t be afraid to experiment
Don’t be afraid to experiment and make mistakes. Learning what works and what doesn’t is part of the Hitman game, and you’ll have to learn this trick if you want to know the levels and what you can do to go through them and get away with killing your targets.
Take all the objects you can see
TAKE EVERYTHING. Agent 47 does not have a carry limit, so don’t worry about picking up anything that isn’t nailed down unless it raises suspicion. This might come in handy later: You don’t want to find yourself with the perfect opportunity to take a target only to find that you haven’t grabbed the tool you need!
Challenges are remembered when loading a previous save
Each level of Hitman 3 comes with a large number of challenges, including Assassination, Discovery, Achievements and more, and many of them require a particular situation to be handled in different ways. Fortunately, Hitman 3 is kind enough to remember these achievements – he only forgets when you return to the main menu.
For example, in Dubai there is a challenge to kill a target with poison, and another to stab Carl Ingram using his golden model of an oil rig. Both can be done in the same part of the level with the exact same approach. Rather than going through the entire mission twice, save it and then kill it with one method before reloading and trying the other. When you finally complete the level, both challenges will be banked!
Explore using the best disguise in a level
While spending time digging, you may stumble upon a disguise that gives you almost full access to anywhere in the level (like the Penthouse Guard in Dubai). Once that happens, you might want to save and then go through the entire level, picking up items, exploring rooms, and opening up shortcuts that you will remember for later games.
Use Instinct Vision often
Agent 47’s Instinct Vision is one of the most valuable tools you have, mainly because it lets you peer through walls and see what others are up to, and if they are Enforcers who can see through your disguise. This can be extremely useful when sneaking around, for example determining when a guard is not present so you can sneak in.
It’s also great for picking out small items like keys, coins, and rat poison, so when you’re exploring a new area you’ll want to use it to help identify the things you want. to pick up.
Know the quirks of your disguise
Disguises are incredibly useful ways to infiltrate your way to the target, but they have a series of quirks that change depending on which one you’re wearing.
Firstly, some guards known as the Enforcers will be able to tell that Agent 47 is disguising himself and is marked with a white dot on the minimap and above their heads. Who can choose you varies by disguise, but you can blend in to avoid their attention. You’ll want to watch out for anyone who might regularly work or interact with who you’re in disguise.
Second, different disguises can enter different areas. For example, at the Dubai level, only maintenance agents can enter the supply rooms, unlike event staff. Keep an eye out on the minimap for warning banners; Trespassing will mean you’ll have a chance to get away if you get caught, but hostile areas mean you’ll be shot on sight.
Third, many disguises will have a list of illegal items that they cannot be seen holding, usually deadly weapons like guns and knives. You can hide them by keeping them in your inventory and only keeping them when no one is looking, but if you are Frisked they will be discovered.
Kill non-targets only as a last resort
You play an Assassin in Hitman 3, and that means you have specific targets to kill. You incur a hefty XP penalty if you kill someone who isn’t your target, so try to avoid doing so if you can.
Some level changes are permanent
In some situations, you can open doors, pits, ladders, and other items with specific items to expand your access through the level. These changes are permanent even when you level up, giving you more possibilities.
For example, at the Dubai level, you can use a crowbar to lower a ladder from the golf tee to a storage room that contains the explosive golf ball!
The Garrotte is still a deadly weapon
It might not be entirely obvious until you do it by accident, but the famous Garrotte is a deadly weapon that will kill whoever you use it on.
Coins aren’t the only way to distract people
While coins are the obvious way to distract people, other objects can work just as well as long as they make noise, like hammers. You can also do things like turn on vacuums or play with fuse boxes to draw someone to a specific point.
Wait for targets to turn off distractions
A common way to sneak up on someone is to play with something, like lights or a vacuum cleaner, which will entice someone to put them back to normal. You’ll want to take them out AFTER they reset things: if you move in first, you risk someone else coming in and doing it themselves, which means you can get caught red-handed!
Zoom in to hear conversations more clearly
If you have nothing in Agent 47’s hand, you can pull the left trigger to zoom into your view. This will increase the volume of all conversations in view, making them easier to hear without captions. To store an item, press Up on the D-Pad.
