Hitman's Elusive Target #9 will see you coming long before you get there
There are no known pictures of The Black Hat available.
Agent 47's next elusive target will be a bit more difficult than usual. He will have no knowledge of what his mark looks like, and it is likely that our assassin friend may be spotted long before he even gets close.
The newest target is The Black Hat, also known as Owen "Protagonist" Wagner. He is with his long-time partner who is only known as Whitecap. They are located in Paris, somewhere around the Palais de Walewska. Players may recognize the locale from a previous mission The Showstopper, where spies Viktor Novikov and Dalia Margolis were the target. Margolis is back, having hired Protagonist and Whitecap for a high profile hack.
Players are advised to stay away from cameras, with the only other tip being that the target likes to jam a lot, a reference to his using a cheap fruit marmalade only available in Alabama.
As usual, no minimap icons, no instinct mode, 72 hours to complete, and only one chance before he is gone for good. The target is now active, and will be out of the area on Monday, August 29, by 8 a.m. ET / 5 a.m. PT.
