Freeform Training is the second training mission in HITMAN™, and the second of the three prologue missions that feature in the game. Both Freeform Training and the third prologue mission, The Final Test, are available to play for free as part of the HITMAN™ free trial. Additionally, all three training missions make a return in HITMAN™ 2, and do not require the purchase of the Legacy Pack.



Taking place prior to the events of Hitman: Codename 47, Agent 47 is given a simulated mission as his first entrance requirement to join the International Contract Agency. He is tasked with infiltrating a luxury yacht in order to assassinate Kalvin Ritter.

The mission is a recreated assignment using ICA training operatives, with simulated environments and weapons.The mission takes place on a poor recreation of a yacht, resembling the setting for Kalvin Ritter's original assassination, used to test agents before acceptance into the International Contract Agency. The yacht is filled with innocent citizens, along with actors to represent special forces, including the target himself.

Mission Briefing

Guided Training
"Welcome to advanced training.

This operation originally took place in Sydney, Australia. The target was Kalvin Ritter infamous cat burglar also known as "The Sparrow,"

You will need to infiltrate the yacht, isolate and eliminate your target, and exfiltrate, all without arousing suspicion.Our agent cleverly infiltrated Ritter's private yacht during a social gathering and discreetly eliminated him without any of the guests noticing. Now you will do the same.

And remember; as a ICA agent you are the most dangerous person in any room

Oh, and don't worry about the training operatives. All weapons are simulated. Good luck, Initiate."

Freeform Training
Welcome back, Initiate.

As an ICA agent, every challenge you face can be overcome in multiple ways. Complete this exercise again, this time attacking it from a different angle. Vary your strategy, improvise.

We will be watching.
