Three-Headed Serpent is the third mission in HITMAN™ 2.


Mission Briefing

"Good morning, 47. Our Providence contact has shared the identity of the "Shadow Client". A former mercenary and bodyguard by the name of Lucas Grey. His past is a black void, but our analysts are digging deep. Meanwhile, we've had a breakthrough of our own.

Comparing the militia's attack patterns with global shipping and transportation routes, we've figured out how Mr. Grey and his paramilitaries move around the world undetected. They're using the distribution network of the Delgado Cartel, Colombia's biggest drug manufacturer. Clearly, Grey must have struck a deal with the Delgado's. Consequently, if we can cripple the cartel, we can severely limit the militia's strike range. But to do so, we need to slay a three-headed serpent.

Sociopathic cartel head Rico Delgado and his two closest lieutenants: PR guru Andrea Martinez and savant chemist Jorge Franco. With equal parts guts and guile, Rico Delgado runs a thriving billion-dollar criminal empire. The word is, the brutal and volatile cartel head is hell-bent on becoming the number one drug lord in the world.

To achieve this, Martinez, a childhood friend of Delgado's, has been buttering up state leaders and decision-makers, paving the way for an expansion of the Delgado logistics network, while the brilliant but aloof and anti-social Franco has been hard at work developing a new type of super-cocaine. So. Three of Colombia's most infamous crime lords, inhabiting a decidedly hostile environment.

I will leave you to prepare."

Mission Stories

Heart of Stone

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

Rico Delgado is due for an unveiling of a statue in the town square. Sounds promising. So, the ever-classy Rico Delgado has commissioned a statue of himself to adorn the village square. Today's unveiling ceremony will feature a local band and Rico Delgado will attend in person. I suggest you take a close look, 47. This should be a unique opportunity to engage Delgado outside the walls of his compound.

A secret project? Surely this warrants attention. So, an employee of the Delgado cartel was injured while working on as secret project in the caves beneath Santa Fortuna. Sounds intriguing. I suggest you located this man's house, 47. Could be a chance to access the heart of the Delgado cartel.

Deadly Art

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

Rico Delgado needs to have a tattoo fixed. So, P-Power, celebrity tattooist of "Tattoo Torment" fame has come to Santa Fortuna. Presumable, to work his magic on Rico Delgado, a known ink enthusiast. Sounds like an invitation to the mansion, 47. Are you feeling expressive?

Half Baked

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

A helicopter pilot lost a package belonging to Jorge Franco. So, it sounds like the Delgado's helicopter pilot dropped a package over the jungle by mistake. A red box, containing circuit boards, for Jorge Franco's new cocaine processing machine. Hm, sounds like a workplace accident waiting to happen. Providing Franco can get his machine working.


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

A drug smuggler has a meeting with Franco but needs to mend his sample first. So, a drug dealer from Sapienza has been testing a new method for smuggling Delgado brand cocaine into Europe. Baking the substance into souvenirs, coated in a special anti-drug detection paint solution, the dealer has been traveling the globe, testing the method. However, he accidentally broke the souvenir on arrival and needs to mend it before going to see Franco.

Undying Love

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

An old love affair ready to spark anew, 47? Huh. Rico Delgado's brother Hector is trying to win back his old flame, Andrea Martinez. Apparently, Hector has authored a rather slushy love letter, but one of the sicarios foolhardily stole it from Hector's room during last night's party. I suggest you acquire that letter, 47. From what we know about Martinez, a deceleration of love from Hector is bound to provoke a reaction

Hallowed Ground

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

The local construction site needs a spiritual cleansing... So, Andrea Martinez wants the local shaman to do a spirit cleanse at the construction site and she has ordered her sicarios to summon him, against his will, if necessary. I suggest you get involved, 47. After all, getting rid of bad influences is what you do best.
