The Icon is the first of the two summer bonus missions included in HITMAN™. Agent 47 is tasked with eliminating Actor/Director Dino Bosco.

Objectives:

  • Eliminate Dino Bosco.
  • Locate Exit

Description

Set sometime before the events of World of Tomorrow, The Icon takes place in the coastal town of Sapienza, Italy. Dino Bosco, a character actor attempting to salvage a failing career, is filming an action sequence for his comeback film The Icon, a superhero movie based on the cult graphic novel of the same name.

Bosco's need for perfection has significantly hampered the project. His constant re-shooting of the scene after scene has dragged the project significantly over-budget and past deadline and has left the film studio producing the movie, L'Avventura Pictures, dangerously close to bankruptcy. Due to their contract with Bosco, L'Avventura cannot simply fire him and is in danger of running out of funds.

L'Avventura has contracted the International Contract Agency to eliminate Bosco before he bankrupts the studio.

Mission Briefing

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

"Your destination is the Italian coastal town of Sapienza, where our client, L'Avventura Pictures, is shooting a superhero epic based upon the cult graphic novel The Icon.

Your target is Dino Bosco, the film's director, and leading man. A washed-up character actor, Bosco sees The Icon as his big comeback. Unfortunately, his rampant perfectionism and complete disregard for the budget has left L'Avventura on the verge of bankruptcy. Still, he doggedly refuses to wrap the production.

L'Avventura cannot fire Bosco without violating their contract. That is why they have asked us to retire him before the whole studio goes belly-up. I will leave you to prepare."

Opportunities

An Explosive Ending

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

Special effects is a dangerous business if handled incorrectly, especially pyrotechnics.

According to the special effects crew, the final scene involves a remotely triggered explosion, and the charges have already been set. Sounds like an accident waiting to happen.

Light My Fire

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

Bosco wants more flames. Let's not disappoint the director.

According to the special effects crew, Dino Bosco demands bigger, more lavish flames. I believe we should give him what he wants.

Something to Chew on

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

Those teeth sound sharp. Maybe Icon is destructible after all.

With a little tampering, the prop teeth can be made lethal. And Dino Bosco does his own stunts. Always good to see an actor willing to die for his art.

Time to Meet the Fans

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

Surrounded by all his adoring fans, Bosco may expose a weakness in his personality ... and armor.

A Q&A session? This could get complicated. A lot of witnesses around. Then again, I'm sure that a distraction of sorts could create a perfect set-up.

Intelligence

  • Bosco Car Key
  • Bosco Trailer Key
  • Explosive Manual Override Code
The following contain spoilers. Click "show" to continue.

A code to manually override the automatic explosions set up on the set. A computer could be very useful now.

  • High Octane Fuel
The following contain spoilers. Click "show" to continue.

This high octane fuel could be highly unstable. Be careful when handling it, but maybe it could be used for some kind of grand finale. A perfect end to the third act, so to speak.

  • Pyrotechnics Trigger
The following contain spoilers. Click "show" to continue.

A remote control. It seems it can activate something, maybe some kind of prop or special effect.

  • Shop Key
  • The Q&A Session
The following contain spoilers. Click "show" to continue.

According to the Bosco's agent, a Q&A is ready to take place. I presume an event like this will always have some sort of refreshments prepared for our star.

  • The Robot Teeth
The following contain spoilers. Click "show" to continue.

According to the film crew, the prop robot suspended above the set has a dangerous set of teeth. Who knows, these teeth could bite back in a fatal way.

  • Town Hall Key
  • Unstable Fuel
The following contain spoilers. Click "show" to continue.

According to the special effects crew, they are experimenting with some kind of unstable super fuel. But I'm sure you can put it to good use.
