Assassination

 Silent Assassin

In order to complete this assassination challenge, you need to complete the mission by killing only the targets, hiding all the bodies, and not getting spotted. Knocking out non-targets and hiding their bodies will not cause you to fail the mission.

Silent Assassin, Suit Only

In order to complete this assassination challenge, you need to complete the mission by killing only the targets, hiding all the bodies, and not getting spotted, while only using one of your suits. Knocking out non-targets and hiding their bodies will not cause you to fail the mission.

Players who have the necessary mastery unlocks can opt to start the mission in the consulate basement or the school alley, as this gives you access to the consulate or the school immediately. For those attempting it from the default starting location with the default loadout (Silenced Pistol, Fiberwire, Coin), there are a few ways to go about the mission.

Killing Reza Zaydan:

  1. Head to the small nook right beside the headmaster's shop. Shoot the scooter beside the agency pick up point twice to explode it. Run past the soldiers who come over to investigate and turn left at the top of the stairs
  2. Drop down the hole and sneak run to the Printing Press Room. Grab the Toy Tank, Rifle, and Crowbar along the way.
  3. Drop the Rifle as you enter the room and take cover behind the boxes beside the soldier. Throw the Toy Tank at the planted rifle.
  4. Cut across the room to the open window once the guard moves. Pick up the screwdriver and scale the cluster of tables onto the second floor.
  5. Climb out of the window, shimmy across to the room to the left and climb back in once the coast is clear. Cut across the room and take cover at the table near the hole in the wall.
  6. Once the soldier patrolling the staircase moves to the ground floor, drop down and run up the stairs and into the toilet on the left.
  7. Drop down the hole behind the stall, switch on the intercom, and scale the boxes to return to the toilet. Be careful of the soldier that can spot you on his route as you travel between the two floors.
  8. Reza Zaydan will come to the toilet to investigate, then head to the intercom room to chide the soldiers gossiping about him. Players can throw a coin to lure him further into the toilet and assassinate him by either Garroting or Headshot for the Piano Man and Straight Shot challenges respectively.
  9. For those who want to clear the Bathroom Break challenge, kick the toilet onto Zaydan's head once he is in position downstairs. This also accomplishes the Someone Could Hurt Themselves challenge.

Climb out of the window and drop down to the School Alley below. For those who took out Zaydan last, shimmy across to the room on the left instead to grab the Army Truck Keys, then drop down to the School Alley below. Use the crowbar on the door to the next alley, and the door leading to the army truck. Make sure the soldier patrolling between the two doors is out of earshot. Exit the school compound via the path to the left of the army truck (or the army truck itself for those who killed Zaydan second). Shoot the scooter near the well twice to explode it and cause a distraction so that you can escape without being spotted.

Killing Claus Strandberg:

  1. Vault over the left side of the consulate wall and immediately take the staircase down to the parking garage.
  2. Turn right, trigger the military radio to distract the soldier and grab the consulate key card. Sneak back around the truck and run towards the outer wall.
  3. Pick up the two remote explosives on the box and hug the wall as you run to the door at the back of the parking garage. Throw the crowbar as a distraction if necessary.
  4. Use the consulate keycard on the door and sneak all the way up to the second floor.
  5. Cut through the room on the left (the one with the vacuum cleaner) and tamper with the stage lamp wire w/ the screwdriver. If Claus Strandberg is the player's first target, there is a screwdriver in the room where the large agency pickup in the consulate parking garage is. Players can also just shoot the plug with the silenced pistol.
  6. Circle around to the control room and turn on the stage lamp.
  7. Claus Strandberg will electrocute himself as he leans on the railings. This awards the player with the Electri-fried challenge and Someone Could Hurt Themselves challenge if not previously completed.
  8. Throw a remote explosive onto the staircase leading down to the back of the reception area. When the security guarding the stairs picks up the remote explosive, he will move away. Run down the stairs and grab the Consulate Staff Car Keys.
  9. Exit the consulate via the door on the left to avoid the camera.

Either vault over the consulate wall if Claus Strandberg is your first target, or return to the parking garage. Take the black car near the military radio, which is now activated as an exit for a quick getaway. This unlocks the Floor It! challenge and the Consulate Parking Garage starting location, if not previously unlocked.

Sniper Assassin

Start in a cafe (Or infiltrate it) with sniper rifle hidden in carpet shop. Wait in the bathroom for a soldier, subdue him and steal his clothes. Reclaim your rifle and walk up to the embassy. As you walk in the courtyard, stand behind military cars to the right and wait for Strandberg to walk up to the window on the second floor. Snipe him and walk away - guards will be alerted, but won't suspect you.

Infiltrate school. The best place to acquire disguise of an elite soldier is in a shop guarded by soldiers (The same shop that has tunnel entrance in its backyard). Front door guard sometimes leaves his post to look inside the shop leaving an opening for you to scale barricades and sneak into the shop. Take cover behind yellow boxes as he passes by back to his post. Inside you can hear two guards talk about passage until one of them leaves. Another one will stare at the wall giving you an opening to subdue him right next to a container.

Walk into the school - few soldiers would be able to see through your disguise. Walk up to the window looking inner courtyard and wait for Zaydan to walk by the window on the second floor and shoot him. If your position is right you should have no problem retreating to the market and escaping unnoticed and unharmed.
