Hitman 3: Trophies/Achievements - list, basic content Hitman 3 guide, walkthrough

On this page, you will find the complete trophy guide for Hitman 3. It contains descriptions of the main content trophies, i.e. related to the 6 main missions/locations of Hitman 3. Read our descriptions to learn the requirements of each achievement, how to fulfill them, and how to unlock the platinum trophy in Hitman 3.

We have detailed the more complicated trophies on separate pages of the trophy guide. We're reporting this in their "comment" sections.

We have compiled all of the DLC trophies in a separate section of the trophy guide. You don't have to unlock them to get platinum in Hitman 3.

Key information

  1. The basic set consists of 48 trophies. One of them is a platinum trophy which can only be earned on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 consoles.
  2. You can only earn trophies in the online mode, while you are connected to the game servers. Hitman 3 also offers the option of offline play, but it does not save your progress in unlocking challenges or advancing to mastery levels. So you won't unlock any achievements offline even if you complete their objectives.
  3. Trophies are primarily related to the game's 6 main missions/locations. You can earn achievements related to feats such as executing various assassination variants, completing story quests, exploring all areas of the map, or reaching maximum championship levels in specific locations.
  4. With the exception of the Carpathians mission, Hitman 3 does not force you to complete stages at 100%. This simply means that you do not have to complete 100% of the challenges associated with a particular location. You can just finish those that are directly related to the trophy's requirements and stop after advancing to level 20 mastery on a given map.
  5. Several trophies are linked to prologue missions and the contract mode. Identical achievements have appeared in the Hitman and Hitman 2 games. Unfortunately, even if you transfer your progress to Hitman 3, the aforementioned trophies must be redone. These are fortunately simple and not very time-consuming.
  6. Two trophies are for activities performed throughout the whole game - these are the Shortcut Killer and Stylish Assassin achievements. It's a good idea to read their descriptions early on and perform their related actions on the fly.
  7. In Hitman 3, there is no requirement to set the difficulty level to Master, the highest possible difficulty in the game. You can play all the time on the default difficulty level Professional (equivalent to normal).

World of Assassination

Trophy type: platinum

How to unlock: Get all 47 trophies.

Comment: The platinum trophy is available only on PS4 and PS5. This does not apply to trophies from additional content, i.e. those related to Hitman and Hitman 2 locations.

The Result of Previous Training

Trophy type: bronze

How to unlock: Complete the Freeform Training in the Prologue.

Comment: You will receive the trophy regardless of how you get rid of Kalvin Ritter in Freeform Training.

Cleared for Field Duty

Trophy type: bronze

How to unlock: Complete The Final Test in the Prologue.

Comments: You will receive the trophy regardless of how you get rid of Jasper Knight in The Final Test.

Seizing the Opportunity

Trophy type: bronze

How to unlock: Complete any Mission Story in The Final Test.

Comment: This achievement is for Mission Stories, which are specially crafted opportunities to eliminate mission objectives in various ways. During the second training mission, these include catapulting Knight from a fighter aircraft or using poison. Choose any such assassination variant and bring it to completion.

The Creative Assassin

Trophy type: bronze

How to unlock: Complete the Contract Creation Tutorial.

Comments: The Hitman 3 tutorial allows you to learn (or just refresh your memory on) how to create contracts. It guides you exactly step by step and you just need to follow the subsequent commands to know all the options of the contract creation system.

Silent Assassin

Trophy type: silver

How to unlock: Complete The Final Test unspotted. Kill only Jasper Knight, ensuring his body is not found.

Commentary: For this trophy, you need to get the rank of Silent Assassin. It will only be granted to you if you don't get noticed by anyone, kill only Knight, and don't let anyone find his corpse. You can eliminate other people on the map (e.g. with the intention of acquiring new disguises), but only by rendering them unconscious. Additionally, it is necessary that you hide their bodies. As for the method to eliminate Knight, you can get rid of him by, for example, pouring poison into vodka, so you can dispose of him in private in the toilet without any problems.

For the details regarding this assassination variant, see the walkthrough description in the Hitman 1 guide.

Training Escalated

Trophy type: bronze

How to unlock: Complete Level 5 of an Escalation Contract set in the ICA Facility.

Commentary: In the Escalations, Agent 47 is faced with increasingly complex challenges tied to completing the assassinations. Fortunately, even if you fail a particular escalation level, you don't have to start completely from scratch. You can repeat the same level of escalation.

Top of the Class

Trophy type: bronze

How to unlock: Beat the highest leaderboard score on a Contract.

Comments: The easiest way to do this is to create a contract yourself and intentionally get a worse score in it (e.g. because of the long mission time or the raising of alarms). Then repeat your own contract and execute it flawlessly to get a better score.

A New Profile

Trophy type: bronze

How to unlock: Complete a Featured Contract.

Comments: Featured Contracts are those selected by the game's authors. They change regularly, so if you have problems with the one currently available then wait for the next one.

Tools of the Trade

Trophy type: silver

How to unlock: Assassinate Targets with Ballistic, Accident, and Explosion Kills.

Comments: You can get this trophy in any mission of the game, not solely the tutorial missions. It can also be during one of the imported locations from Hitman or Hitman 2.

Play a mission of your choice several times and change the assassination technique on each successive attempt. It is worth mentioning that to get rid of the mission target through an explosion you can use either the explosives you have in your inventory or simply by destroying an explosive element from the environment.

Unseen Assassin

Trophy type: bronze - Hitman 3: Trophies/Achievements - list, basic content - Trophy Guide - Hitman 3 Guide

Trophy type: bronze

How to unlock: Assassinate a Target without getting spotted.

Comments: This is a very simple achievement that you can get in one of the tutorial missions or in any main mission. You should be able to unlock them without much trouble, e.g. while trying to obtain the rank of Silent Assassin in one of the quests. The trophy should unlock after completing the mission, i.e. when the game loads its summary screen.

Shortcut Killer

Trophy type: silver - Hitman 3: Trophies/Achievements - list, basic content - Trophy Guide - Hitman 3 Guide

Trophy type: silver

How to unlock: Find and unlock 15 Shortcuts.

Comments: Shortcuts are one of the new mechanics in Hitman 3. There are a few shortcuts to unlock on most maps that remain permanently available for use, even when repeating the same mission.

You can learn about the existence of shortcuts by reviewing challenges - Hitman 3: Trophies/Achievements - list, basic content - Trophy Guide - Hitman 3 Guide

You can learn about the existence of shortcuts by reviewing challenges. Namely, there is a separate challenge associated with unlocking each shortcut. You can also use our guide. For information about the location of shortcuts, see the pages in the Location Map and Mission Information group.

Stylish Assassin

Trophy type: bronze - Hitman 3: Trophies/Achievements - list, basic content - Trophy Guide - Hitman 3 Guide

Trophy type: bronze

How to unlock: Get 10 different Playstyles.

Comments: Styles are the ranks given on the mission summary screen - an example (Black Cat) is shown in the picture above. The game does not keep you updated on your current rank in any way. You only find out about it after completing a mission and it is determined by the method of passing said mission.

There are far more than 10 types of styles/ranks in the game, but it's still worth remembering a few things that will make it easier for you to get the trophy:

  1. Don't try to get the Silent Assassin rank in every mission attempt, and don't restart the mission if you make a mistake. Try to complete the mission as many times as possible, especially if it is one of the shorter stages (e.g. Dartmoor where you only have one mission objective).
  2. As you repeat missions, experiment with different assassination techniques, such as using different varieties of firearms and edged weapons, relying on melee options, poisoning mission targets, or disposing of NPCs in arranged accidents.
  3. Take various gadgets on the missions with you to help you perform attacks, such as various explosives (remote and motion-responsive) or throwing weapons.
  4. Try to complete missions by focusing only on killing the main mission targets or by eliminating bystanders (Non-Targets) as well.
  5. Try to complete missions by staying hidden at all times or by letting the guards spot you. In different retries of the mission, kill the guards when an alarm is raised or run away from them and lose the chase.
  6. In subsequent approaches to the mission, hide the bodies (in different places) or leave them in plain sight to be discovered.
