Chasing a Ghost is the fourth mission in HITMAN™ 2.

Objectives:

Mission Briefing


Good evening, 47. The militia has released a hostage tape, outing the existence of Providence to the world. This was a fatal mistake and our analysts are tracing its origin as we speak. In the meantime, we have a lead on Lucas Grey's top lieutenant.
Turns out the Delgado cartel's counterfeiting unit was creating fake IDs for the militia and one operative in particular stands out; Wazir Kale. An infamous South China Sea pirate, better known by his nom de guerre, The Maelstrom.

The Maelstrom and his cutthroat band of outlaws were the scourge of the shipping industry in the post-recession years. But his reign of terror came to an end with the disastrous 2004 hijacking of the super tanker, "Frances King". Chinese elite forces stormed the ship, resulting in the deaths of a dozen sailors and most of The Maelstrom's crew, but Kale slipped away unseen.

The Maelstrom's connection to Grey is unknown, but we believe it was he who carried out the audacious killing of a Providence CEO in Shanghai - along with two reactivated members of his old pirate gang; Vanya Shah; a shady figure in Mumbai's criminal underworld and Dawood Rangan; the gang's old cashier turned dodgy movie producer. Shah, Rangan and The Maelstrom form Lucas Grey's "eastern cell". They are a crack strike team and stopping them is our client's most pressing concern. Unfortunately, the elusive Maelstrom appears to have vanished into the seedy underbelly of Mumbai - the cradle of his criminal legend - and no one knows his whereabouts or what he currently looks like. So. A bandit queen, a showbiz charlatan and one certifiable ghost.

I shall leave you to prepare.

Mission Stories

Gone with the Wind

The following contain spoilers. Click "show" to continue.

A missing script and an industrial fan.

The production of "Mumbai Hero" is coming to a close but it seems there's a spot of trouble. Lead actress Karisma Haasan has refused to do a kissing scene with Rangan and has gotten rid of the script by tossing it down an elevator shaft. Shame... The scene features the use of a large industrial wind machine. Could be worth investigating.

A Dress to Die For

The following contain spoilers. Click "show" to continue.

A tailor, a Slum Queen and a dress...

It appears Vanya Shah is in the market for a dress fit for a queen. She's sent after a local tailor but for some reason the man refuses to cooperate. A man of your impeccable tastes should be able to fill in perfectly for the tailor.

Broad Strokes

The following contain spoilers. Click "show" to continue.

A rival assassin.

A local hitman known as "The Kashmirian" is in Mumbai on business. He set up a sniper nest in a tower above a stairwell in the local chawl. It appears he's targeting the luxury apartment belonging to Daewood Rangan, but he encountered a problem. Perhaps you can assist him?

Picture Perfect

The following contain spoilers. Click "show" to continue.

A missing cast member and a pending photo shoot.

Gregory Arthur, a famous broadway star, is apparently late for a photo shoot inside Rangan's unfinished tenement tower. Hang on, he uploaded a selfie on social media about half an hour ago. Hm, the Mumbai food district... He's likely still there, 47.

A Close Shave

The following contain spoilers. Click "show" to continue.

The Barber and The Maelstrom.

This barber is tangled up in some shady business, 47. But even more interesting, he may have seen a picture of The Maelstrom in the hideout of the street gang known as the Crows. That picture would be very helpful to our cause.

A Matter of Discipline

The following contain spoilers. Click "show" to continue.

An Audience with the Queen.

Vanya Shah is eager to meet the new foreman of the Mumbai Laundry business. However, the foreman has taken refuge in his office, unwilling to meet up with her at this time. You might be able to use this to your advantage.
