In Hitman 3 kicked off the season entitled “Lust» (Lust). This is the fourth of the planned seven, the names of which are given in honor of deadly sins. In addition to new weapons and events, the game has a single-level escalation – “The Lust Assignation”.
Almost every element possible for randomization in this task is determined randomly, therefore it is impossible to compose a guide on the perfect passage. In this regard, we offer you just tips that will help you complete the main (rather peaceful this time) and additional goal.
What do we have to do? Step-by-step instruction
Step 1. Find three clues. Choose keys and clues that are located near the ballroom. Most of the nearby clues can be accessed through the vents that are next to the DJ booth.
Step 2. Identify the fan. To do this, use the prompts and observe the target.
Step 3. Present the bouquet. When you make sure that there is a fan in front of you, hand over a bouquet (you can take it from the pedestal to the left of the customer).
The bouquet is not available at the very beginning of the mission. It appears on the pedestal when you collect three clues.
Step 4. Leave the escalation or complete the side mission.
Random items: target and safes
Clues are found in safes that are scattered throughout the map. Unfortunately, their location is randomly determined each time a mission is launched, as is the fan’s identity. The safes will be marked on your card with blue question mark icons.
The vaults themselves can be opened with keys or explosives (more on them later). Most importantly, when using the key, take care to distract the guard for a while while you dig into the safe and leave the scene.
Unchanged elements: keys and new weapons
The good news is that despite the fact that key elements of the mission are generated randomly, keys and weapons are always in the same places. Moreover, the special weapon that appeared with this update will very well help you get keys and hints.
First – Crossbow “Snake language» ( of The du Serpent ‘ s a reply Tongue). There are several such weapons on the map. If you already have a crossbow, then when you pick up the next one, you will receive +2 bolts in ammunition. You can pick up a crossbow near the place where Lust (customer) is located.
The peculiarity of the crossbow is the blinding of the enemy (for this you need to shoot in the face). After that, the character will not see you for a few seconds. An excellent tool in case you need to sneak into a point near which the sentry is constantly located.
The second novelty – remote explosive weapons “Snake Bite» ( of The du Serpent ‘ s Bite). Everything is simple here: you throw a charge, and it sticks to the place where it gets. If you hit an NPC, then it will fall from the hit of the charge. It is best to use this weapon to open safes. Of course, this should be done with great care, because the sound of the explosion will attract the guards.
What the clues mean
The clues you receive will not directly point you to the target – you will have to solve the riddle and choose the right person. In total, you can collect 6 love letters, but in fact, only three are enough to accurately identify the fan.
To make it easier, we provide a translation from a prompting into Russian.
- A veil of smoke… – the target is smoking.
- It’s cloudless air… – the target doesn’t smoke.
- Through which I dance … – the target dances (this significantly narrows the range of searches, because only three characters are dancing).
- Wherein I stand… – the target is not dancing.
The third clue will be related to the drink the target is drinking (for example, With my champagne, ). Just take a closer look at the characters’ glass.
Below are a few of the fan options and their corresponding hint combinations.
“It’s cloudless air… Through which I dance… With my champagne”
“It’s cloudless air… Wherein I stand… Whiskey tongued”
“It’s cloudless air… Through which I dance… Imbibing white”
“A veil of smoke… Through which I dance… Imbibing white”
Reaching the goal
After realizing which of those present is a secret admirer, you can complete an additional goal and kill other guests.
There are many places and items in the ballroom that will help you kill enemies without arousing suspicion:
- glasses of drinks that can be poisoned;
- 5 large chandeliers that can be dropped;
- a large speaker that can fall on a person;
- a bathroom in which you can drown the enemy.
If you are going to hand over the bouquet after having dealt with other contenders for the hand and heart of Lust, make sure that the secret admirer has never seen Agent 47 during suspicious activities, and even more so during the murder. Otherwise, handing over the bouquet will fail, and the mission will fail.
