On this page of the guide to Hitman 3 you will find a detailed walkthrough description of the Bird Of Prey Mission Story. From our guide you will learn how to pose as Zana Kazem and how to get close to one of the main targets of the mission in Dubai, Carl Ingram.
The different ways to eliminate Carl Ingram are described on a separate page of our guide.
Posing as Zana Kazem
You will meet Zana Kazem, aka "The Vulture", at the location shown in the image above (point 9 on the map), right next to the party. He is one of the agents working for Crystal Dawn, a pan-African terrorist organization. The man tries to get to the meeting, claiming to have been personally invited by his highness Omar Al-Ghazali, but the guards refuse to let him through without frisking him first.
You need to find a way to impersonate Zana Kazem. As soon as he walks into the garden, follow him and hide in the lodge shown in the image above. Use the marked terminal to draw Zana's attention and hide in the bushes.
When he comes closer to check the device, sneak up on him from behind and subdue him. Drag the body into the bushes and change into Kazem's clothes. If Zana Kazem didn't manage to turn off the terminal, do it now so you don't lure anyone else into the area.
To get to the reception and talk to Omar Al-Ghazali's personal assistant, you cannot have any illegal items on you (you can leave them in the bushes, for example) or you need to somehow lure the guards away from the stairs.
If you don't want to part with your weapon, go to the alcove on the left, distract the guard standing on the left (throw an item into the hallway on his left, e.g. a coconut that you can collect from under the palm tree in the room to the right side of the stairs). When the guard leaves his position, activate the alarm located on the wall to the right. After a while, the guards on the stairs will leave their position and you will be able to move to the upper floor.
Speak to Omar's assistant - the woman will inform you that Carl Ingram is expecting your arrival, and a moment later she will lead you to the conference room.
When you enter the Conference Room, don't pick up the sharp tool from the table, because this will alert the guards and thus you may miss the chance to complete this mission without raising suspicion.
After a while, Carl Ingram will arrive and get straight to the point. The man has a certain problem, and his highness Omar has assured him that you will be able to solve it. He will assign you a smaller assignment first, and once you have completed it, you can talk about the real assignment. No one should know that Carl Ingram is staying here, and there's a journalist on the bottom floor who is intrusively inquiring about Burj Al-Ghazali guests - you're supposed to silence him, permanently.
Your target is Hans Lucht, whom you will find on the floor where the opening party is underway. Approach and tell him you have valuable information for him. The man will immediately agree to talk in a more secluded place.
Now you need to lead the reporter to some desolate spot where you will be able to get rid of him. We suggest leading him to the alcove where you have finished off one of the guards earlier. Ask the reporter to wait a moment, then attack him from behind and subdue or eliminate him. Remember that Ingram demanded proof of the job done, so pull out your camera and take a picture. Before you leave, hide the man's body in the closet.
Meeting with Carl Ingram
Return to the reception desk and give the photo to the assistant who showed you to the Conference Room earlier. Remember that you cannot go upstairs if you have illegal items on you - you can leave them e.g. in the bushes, and then let the guards frisk you.
Follow the assistant to the top floor suite, where Carl Ingram's office is located (point 48 on the map). Talk to Carl Ingram and show proof that you took care of the troublesome reporter. At this point, the Bird Of Prey Mission Story will be completed.
