The above map presents a mission location called The Icon. This is one of the two new contracts exclusive to the additional, summer episode of the game. The mission takes place in a town called Sapienza, which has already been visited by Agent 47 in the second main episode of the game's first season.

The map has been modified for this contract. This time, its center is located in the main square in the Eastern part of the map, where you can find a movie set. It should be noted that majority of locations in Sapienza are unavailable for this contract, i.e. the Western estate, or the areas adjacent to the Northern harbor.

Your objective in this mission is to assassinate Dino Bosco, an actor who is shooting his most recent movie in the town. Agent 47 may take advantage of the fact and eliminate Bosco and stage a fatal accident, or bring about interruption in the shooting to eliminate the actor after he goes to see his fans. As usual, the game rewards you for exploring the map before you decide to assassinate your target. Since the location itself is not too large, this should not take long. You can search out all of the points of interest and obtain all of the available outfits really quickly. The next pages of the guide enumerate the key items to find, and discuss the best ways of eliminating Dino Bosco.

Mission preparation

It is a good idea to take a lockpick with you, although this makes sense only if you do not want to lose your time over finding individual keys. Also, you can take lethal poison along, which is going to make it easier for you to poison the actor (if you picked the "regular" rat poison instead, you would still have to drown him or kill in another way, before he could reach the toilet).

Shooting Dino Bosco is not the best idea, due to the fact that he is wearing an armor (this would have you take, at least, two accurate shots), but if you still want to use sniper rifle, hide it in the Agency's stash in the café's basement. There are no people there, which will make it much easier for you to get to the shooting location.

You start the mission in the same point as you did in the case of the Sapienza contract in the second main episode, i.e. by the Southern road (M9,1). You can walk around the movie set even if you are not wearing any outfit (there are guard outposts in many of the locations). Also, Agent 47 will not be able to access the café/the town hall. You can obtain the first outfit really quickly, by luring away one of the crew members, near the starting point (M9,3). Also the new outfit does not provide you with full access and therefore, it is much better to obtain a security guard's uniform, or the uniform of one of the SFX Crew's members (this has been discussed in detail further into the text).

Mission information

Your only target is actor Dino Bosco. He is easy to recognize, thanks to the superhero armor that he is wearing (similar to that of Iron Man). The actor spends majority of his time on the movie set (M9,4), where he keeps reshooting two scenes from the movie - his battle with a robot and his jump towards a larger robot. Each one of the scenes gives you an option to stage an accident in which Dino Bosco dies. Dino Bosco Will also occasionally return to his trailer (M9,5) where you can wait for him. His fans are waiting next to the café (M9,1), but he won't come here until you sabotage shooting of the movie (you have to activate the generators - (M9,7)).

Note - The armor that Dino Bosco is wearing is bulletproof. Do not attempt to fire a pistol at him/ Go for the sniper rifle instead, and even then, you will probably have to take two accurate shots to kill him.

Difficulty: The Icon is not a demanding contract. Its relatively low difficulty results from the fact that the mission area is limited, thanks to which you will not have to look far away for necessary items, or spend too much time exploring the map. What is a little bit more challenging is only the beginning of the mission, but only up to the moment, in which you obtain one of the best outfits to move around the map without being halted. Remember that you may still be recognized by your opponents, even with your outfit on.
