- Eliminate Bradley Paine.
- Eliminate the remaining infected patients.
- Locate Exit.
The mission takes place overlooking the Shadow Client's militia training camp. The Vector greatly resembles Hitman: Sniper Challenge and Hitman: Sniper; the player is restricted to the use of a sniper rifle, a Sieger 300 Advanced, and must eliminate the targets from long range.
The four infected patients are a random selection of Militia members. The player must figure out which members of the militia are infected based on limited details given from Diana Burnwood throughout the course of the mission. If any of the targets realize they are being attacked, they will attempt to evacuate. Failing to eliminate a target before they leave the mission area will end the mission.
Your primary target is medical doctor and radical cultist Bradley Paine. Intel confirms that Paine has already infected a number of unsuspecting militia operatives with the Nabazov virus. Initial examination of the virus show it to be incredibly infectious, and utterly lethal. Fortunately there is no indication that the virus has spread beyond the compound. However, in order to prevent any contagion, Paine must be eliminated along with any infected mercenaries.
The Vector, as well as other missions featured in the Patient Zero campaign, have no mastery points for their mission specific challenges.

- It can be assumed that the use of the Shadow Client's apricot farm is non-canonical, and that The Vector takes place in an unrelated farm within Colorado.
- According to Jacob Mikkelsen and Eskil Møhl, game director and co-director of HITMAN™, this mission is a throwback to St. Petersburg Stakeout, a mission in Hitman 2: Silent Assassin.
