Hitman 3 Elusive Target – The Food Critic’s Silent Assassin’s Guide
The Food Critic is an elusive target located in Bangkok. This is a Hitman 2 location, but it’s free to all Hitman 3 players for a brief period while this elusive target is live. This guide explains how to kill the target with basic gear and get a silent assassin rank.
Elusive Target Warning
You only have one chance to complete this mission. As soon as you start completing objectives, which in this case means that when you kill the target you cannot restart the mission. Until this point, however, you can restart the mission as many times as you want. We recommend that you follow our route several times without killing the target until you are comfortable with it. When you are, you can take it for real and go kill.
You only need the standard equipment that Agent 47 always has for this route. The gun and the coin are essential, but nothing else is. The Gluttony Gobbling Escalation Profligacy costume is a good one to use if you are feeling flashy, but you can use any costume you want.
Step 1: Enter the building
From the starting point, go up the stairs then to the right. Go to the edge of the building and turn left. Keep moving forward until you see the guard. There is a waste pipe on the side of the planter next to it that you have to climb up. Below is a map reference for this drainpipe.
Fit the drain hose and shimmy along the edge of the balcony. An NPC will come out and start smoking on the balcony as you move around, but they won’t see you. Head to the left side of the balcony, then jump on it. Enter the room through the door directly to your right.
Inside this room, open the hallway door and shoot the wall to the right of the doors before hiding behind the sofa. This shot will attract a security guard from the hallway. Once inside, subjugate them and take their uniform. Take their gun and then head to the restaurant.
Step 2: Configure it
The target will spend most of their time there. Above is a map reference for the exact location. You will notice a bodyguard dressed in black near the window. Drop the security guard’s weapon in front of him to pick it up and go away to dispose of it.
Now you have to wait for a waiter to come down the stairs and walk up to the cook. You will be able to see them in the distance. Wait for them to leave the area before doing anything else, otherwise they will see you. As soon as their animation resumes, place a coin on the balcony.
Step 3: The Kill
Hit the target to make it look at you, then run past the room on the balcony. This will push him to go further and investigate. When he’s near the balcony, push him over to kill him. This is an accidental kill so the body can be found, but it will not remove your Silent Assassin rating.
Now all you have to do is find an exit and get out of the area. Completing the Elusive Target will unlock the Gloves Casual Suit for use in any location.
