The Screwdriver is a melee weapon found in Hitman: Blood Money, Hitman: Absolution and HITMAN™. Using a screwdriver as a weapon will kill the target, both as a close combat weapon and by throwing it with automatic aim. The screwdriver can also be used as a distraction by throwing it on the ground using manual aim. The screwdriver is also needed in order to interact with certain objects, such as a Wire Plug for instant.


Hitman: Blood Money

If Agent 47 sneaks up behind someone without them noticing, he can stab them in the side of their head. It is very silent and effective, allowing a very good chance of not being caught.

Hitman: Absolution

The screwdriver is an intimidating and versatile tool, providing some of the more gruesome kills in the game. When attacking head-on, the screwdriver can be driven into the midriff of a target, or into the neck and torn sideways. When attacking an unsuspecting target from behind, the target is dropped to their knees and it is driven into their clavicle. It may also be thrown into the head of a target. Alternatively, it may be thrown and used as a distraction.


"A screwdriver with an insulated handle. Can sabotage certain devices and installations, or be used to create leaks. Can be thrown or used in close combat to eliminate a target."

Similar as in Hitman: Absolution the screwdriver can be used to take out targets silently. It can also be thrown from a far to kill your target. It can also be now used on certain items on the environment, such as screwing apart an extension cord to turn a puddle into a lethal trap.
