Hitman's Elusive Target #2 coming next week

It looks like 47 will be after a Congressman this time.


It will be assassination time again next week when prospective hitmen will get an assignment to take out a Congressman. Relax, bodyguards. We're talking about the second elusive target for Agent 47 in Hitman.

Publisher Square Enix has confirmed that The Congressman will be in-game on May 27, and players will have the usual 48 hours to take him out before he disappears from the game entirely. He will be in the Italian city of Sapienza, and players will be given little intel other than the target is available. There will be no-mini-map markers and no cues from Instinct mode. 

The first elusive target was The Forger two weeks ago, and according to stats released, only 53 percent of players fulfilled the contract, while less than 10 percent were able to do it as a Silent Assassin, meaning they went undetected and there were no other casualties.

The Elusive Target mode of the game is meant to be unforgiving. You die, you lose with no retry, and these targets will never show up again. More targets are planned, and completing five Elusive Targets successfully will unlock a Hitman: Absolution suit, and completing 10 will unlock a Blood Money suit. Be sure you have the Sapienza pack installed to be eligible to get the contract.

      I really like the idea of these. I missed the last one so I have to remind myself to get in on this one.

      Surprised at only 53% success rate. It felt like a pretty easy target. I imagine the next one in Sapienza will be a little harder.

        I imagine a lot of people tried to do a really elaborate stealth hit and botched it on their only try. If they'd just whipped out a pistol and shot him on sight I imagine the success rate would be higher.
