Hitman 2 Guide

Murderous precision Hitman 2 Guide and walkthrough contains Beginner's Guide, Trophy Guide, tips and detailed walkthrough for this demanding action game. You will learn about all the variants of completing missions, outfits and avoiding cameras.

Our guide to Hitman 2 contains all the necessary information to complete the main campaign in 100%, i.e. discovering and completing all the challenges and finding all the techniques of assassinating the individual targets. It also describes the areas in great detail.

The detailed walkthrough is the guide's biggest chapter. There, you will find accurate descriptions of 6 main story missions/locations. Each location from Hitman 2'sbasic content has a high-quality map on which we marked, e.g. mission objectives, important locations, or useful items. Learning each location is crucial as they are very extensive and offer many different ways of reaching key locations. Another important element of walkthrough for each of the maps are different variants of assassinations for story missions and single challenges - you will find out what requirements they have and how to perform them correctly. The walkthrough is complemented by descriptions of smaller mission objectives (e.g. get some quest item), descriptions of challenges related to mission objectives and exploration, and lists of the best costumes and items.

The second larger chapter is trophy guide to Hitman 2. The game has a lot of trophies and achievements. Their descriptions are divided according to the related locations. We also included descriptions of trophies from Hitman 1 which you can get after importing maps from the previous game.

The main chapters of the guide are mainly complemented by an FAQ chapter from which you will learn, e.g. how to open locks, how to use poison (lethal and rat poison), how to get a sniper rifle or how to smuggle items into heavily guarded areas. We have also prepared information about the controls and PC system requirements of Hitman 2.

Hitman 2: Quick beginner's guide

  1. Use the Instinct Mode as often as possible. It is completely free and unlimited and can help you, e.g. track characters on the map or find important interactive objects. You'll appreciate it when you're hunting for a mission target or when you want to avoid detection by guards.
  2. Explore each new map carefully. Locations in Hitman 2 (except Hawke's Bay) are gigantic. You should never rush assassinations. We recommend that you spend up to several hours exploring each new map to learn its main areas, paths, and ways of getting into restricted areas.
  3. Story Missions make assassinations of mission targets easier. You can follow them to learn about the opportunities, for example, to kill someone in private or in an staged accident. In the game options, you can determine how many tips you want to receive - the game can explain all the steps or only give small hints.
  4. You should try to complete every mission without detection. Setting off an alarm doesn't necessarily mean losing, but Agent 47 may have a lot of trouble defeating enemies in close encounters, and your final note may be significantly worse. Always try to obtain the Silent Assassin rank, i.e. kill the objectives of the mission while remaining undetected and leaving no trace of your presence.
  5. Disguises help significantly in reaching restricted areas. Look for opportunities to stun, for example, guards, service personnel, or VIPs. By wearing their clothes, you can gain access to areas inaccessible to other people. However, you must remember that some enemies may recognize Agent 47 even when he is wearing a disguise - you will see dots above their heads.
  6. Don't let the security cameras see you - this can lead to an alarm and a reduced mission rank. If you've made a mistake and you've been spotted, find the security room on the map to erase all surveillance footage and remove any trace of your presence.
  7. Save the game as often as possible. By selecting the default Normal difficulty level, you can save without limits (this happens on the highest level). Saves are useful when you make a mistake, e.g. when someone saw you kill a person. You should also use different save slots.
