When No One Else Dares
How to unlock: Complete The Showstopper mission in Paris.
Commentary: You will receive this achievement no matter how you kill Viktor Novikov and Dalia Margolis.
How to unlock: You must murder Viktor Novikov by dropping a light platform on him.
Commentary: The platform is attached on floor 3 of the palace. In order to sabotage it you need a crowbar. The action must be done when Novikov appears on the catwalk (above picture). Details about this assassination method can be found in the walkthrough chapter.
Meeting the Reaper
How to unlock: You must participate in Dalia Margolis' secret auction as mister Reaper.
Commentary: Obtaining this achievement is related to reaching the auction room thanks to the invitation. In that case you can sit in one of the chairs and wait for Dalia Margolis to greet Agent 47 (above picture). More details about reaching the auction can be found in the walkthrough.
So Many Ways to Stop the Show
How to unlock: You must use all opportunities available during the Showstopper mission.
Commentary: Opportunities are occasions for eliminating targets in various ways. There are eight of them in Paris mission. For obvious reasons, it is impossible to complete them all during one playthrough. You must repeat the Paris mission many times and each time focus on a single selected opportunity (or two opportunities if they are related to different targets and don't exclude each other). Hints about eliminating main mission targets in various ways can be found in the walkthrough chapter. Opportunities available in Paris are:
- 15 Seconds of Fame - You must assume the identity of Helmut Kruger and meet with Dalia in private.
- A Drink to Die For - Prepare a poisoned drink for Viktor Novikov.
- A Private Meeting - Arrange a meeting in gardens between Novikov and Decker.
- A Quick Break - Sabotage Dalia's laptop that is responsible for the auction.
- A Rare Scoop - Arrange an interview between the female blogger and Novikov.
- Guest of Honor - Assume the sheikh identity and participate in the secret auction.
- Lights Out - Drop the light platform on the catwalk.
- Playing with Fire - Initiate the fireworks show.
How to unlock: Complete the fifth level in Escalation mode in Paris.
Comment: With each escalation, Agent 47 will face more and more complex challenges related to assassinations. Paris offers several escalations, and in order to unlock this achievement, you need to complete one of them.
How to unlock: You must select a different starting location in Paris and use Agency delivery to smuggle an item into the palace.
Commentary: Both above mentioned options become available once you reach higher mastery levels (ranks). Try completing the Paris mission at least once on "normal rules" and after that check whether you can select the starting location and delivery option.
City of Light
How to unlock: You must reach twenty mastery level in Paris.
Commentary: Mastery levels (ranks) are obtained by completing various tasks related to Paris mission. The experience needed for reaching higher levels are given for eliminating targets in various ways, finding unique items useful in assassinations or starting the mission in different places. You don't need to complete all available challenges in order to reach 20 level (the game informs you about current rank for example after completing the mission - above picture). In first order pick the challenges that suits you best.
