The Last Yardbird is the first Sniper Assassin mission in HITMAN™ 2.


Agent 47 or Knight and Stone are sent to Austria to eliminate three of the remaining four members of The Yardbirds, a gang of thieves who was famous for many heists with the most famous one was the heist on Shamal Casino in Las Vegas. However the heist turned out to be a disaster because the money they stole was property of organized criminals and in consequence they faced a series of retaliation. The five members of the gang - Aleksander Kovac, Kalvin Ritter, Dorian Lang, Guillaume Maison and Doris Lee - decided to hide away the money, went into hiding and will open the coffer when the dust is settled.

Many years later, during the time of the contract, except for Kalvin Ritter the remaining four members were still alive. However, Guillaume Maison was running out of money, so he decided to organize a wedding ceremony for Elizabeth Lang, Dorian Lang's daughter at his mansion in Austria and invited Doris Lee as a special guest for the event, in hope of successfully convince the other two members to open the coffer during the reunion. Doris Lee, who like Guillaume Maison was also running out of money and was eagerly to get her hands on the casino loot, accepted the invite. Aleksander Kovac, the founder of The Yardbirds, heard about the gathering of the remaining three colleagues and decided to contact ICA, and ordered a contract to eliminate those three and all of their bodyguards in a bid to get all the money for himself. 47 or Knight and Stone set up a sniper nest, successfully eliminate the three former members of The Yardbirds and all of their bodyguards during the wedding ceremony.

Mission Briefing

"Welcome to Austria, Agent 47.

Your targets are Dorian Lang, Guillaume Maison and Doris Lee, three remaining members of the international gang of thieves known as The Yardbirds. The Yardbirds were famous for their daring heists, in particular, one that took place against Shamal Casino in Las Vegas.

However, the money proved to be property of organized criminals who in turn launch a campaign of violence and retaliation in an effort to identify the thieves and find the money. Feeling the earth burning beneath them, the Yardbirds entered into a secret agreement: the treasure would remain hidden and once the dust settled, the last remaining member would inherit everything.

The group retired and all members vanished from sight until Kalvin Ritter, The Sparrow, was found dead on his yacht, but the remaining members remained elusive. The group never gathered in one place but today is a special occasion: the wedding of Elizabeth Lang is taking place at the palatial home of Guillaume Maison, with Doris Lee as a special guest.

Our client is Aleksander Kovak, the founder of the Yardbirds. He has stipulated that all three targets and their bodyguards must be eliminated at this event. Should any of the Yardbirds escape, the contract is invalidated.

Look like Kovak is making his final bid for the lost millions. Good luck."
― Single Player In-Game Briefing by Diana Burnwood
Stone: Welcome to Austria, Knight. Our targets are Dorian Lang, Guillaume Maison, and Doris Lee. Three of the four remaining members of The Yardbirds.
Knight: I remember these guys from the history books. Big hit on the Shamal Casino in Vegas. Got away with millions in cash.

Stone: That's the one in the front page, yeah, but it was hardly the only job they'd pulled. Diamond dealers, banks, you name it. But the casino, that was the turning point for the group.

Knight: Stealing money from organize crime is a life-changing career choice. Any truth to those secret pact conspiracy theory? Wait until the thing to blow over, last man standing gets the millions or something like that.

Stone: That's the files says. After the heist, the group disappeared from the world. Kalvin Ritter, the Sparrow, found dead in his yacht in '98. The rest simply vanished.

Knight: Fast forward couple decades later and now we're at the Maison's Austrian mansion, about to shoot up a wedding of Lang's daughter. I'm assuing the owners finally caught up to them.

Stone: Actually, no. Turns out Yardbird founder Aleksander Kovak grew tired of waiting for the money, so he put out a contract on the rest of the crew. No Yardbird leaves the wedding alive. And he wants the bodyguards dead for good measure as well.

Knight: Sounds to me like he's just upset about not getting invited to the wedding... Well, let's get to it.
