The Hitman franchise has always been about taking out targets, as that’s literally Agent 47’s job. But, with the recent episodic series, the team at IO Interactive decided to take that one step further in a big way. For they added not just the standard contracts, but also created a new feature called “Elusive Target”. In this game of cat-and-mouse, you don’t have any idea where this target is outside of a general area. What’s more, you have only one shot to take them out, and there’s a time-limit on how long until they’re gone for good.
There were many elusive targets in the first season, but not everyone got a chance to take them out. So, the team at IO are giving you a second chance, because the elusive targets have been reactivated. And it all starts with the original target, The Forger. He’s in Paris right now, and you have 9 days at the time of this posting to try and take him out. The others will soon become activated as well.
Now, if you’ve already killed this particular elusive target, you cannot do it again. So you’ll have to wait until the one you’ve missed returns, but they’ll let you know when they do. As for the rest, all the original rewards for completing the task are still active. For those who don’t know, the feature rewarded players will different outfits for Agent 47 if their mission was a success, and that’ll happen again here.
So, for The Forger, if you complete the mission, you’ll get the “Tuxedo with Black Gloves” outfit for Agent 47. Then, if you complete all the elusive target missions, you’ll get a special bonus outfit to top it all off.
If you have the Hitman Companion app, pay attention to that, as news and info will come through it when more targets become active.
