Evidence Collector Challenge Evidence Collector Find the evidence.
Infiltrator Challenge Infiltrator Avoid getting spotted.
Suit Only Challenge Suit Only Avoid using disguises.

Blood Sport Challenge Blood Sport The bigger they are, the harder they fall. (Enter the arena to fight Sanchez; it does not matter if you win or lose the fight.)

  • If 47 kills the Patriot and enters the Arena through the ventilation shaft, the Patriot will not be present and Sanchez will be standing alone in the ring, this will make the Wing Man challenge impossible to complete, but it's a good opportunity for 47 to make the spotlight fall on Sanchez, with no extra casualties. Subduing the Patriot will still have him in the ring, fighting Sanchez, unless his disguise was taken beforehand.
  • For the rating system, if the player kills the Patriot in the Patriot's Hanger, it will only count as a non-target casualty. But in the Arena, it also counts as a civilian casualty.
  • The Patriot is the only VIP who can be killed.
