The above map presents area of operation for the mission entitled "A house Built on Sand". This is one of two new contracts included in the summer episode of Hitman. "A house Built on Sand" takes place in Marrakesh, Morocco, which you have already visited in the third episode of the first season of the game.

The map has been modified for the purposes of this contract. This time around, it is restricted to the big market place, in the center of which there is Shisha Cafe. The two major locations from the previous mission in this area - the school and the embassy - are unavailable here. You can still move around the remaining areas, but locations of nearly all important places have been changed.

In this mission, Agent 47 has to assassinate Matthieu Mendola and Kong Tuo-Kwang. Additionally, you will be required to obtain secret documents that are in the possession of Mendola, which appear in the spot where he is assassinated. The important piece of information is that the scheduled meeting between Mendola and Kwang will not take place, unless you first help Mendola reach the meeting place. This makes things easier, because you will then be able to familiarize yourself with the map without being bothered, as well as with routes that your targets take. You can kill Mendola and Kwang in totally separate parts of the map, or prepare a trap that will spring after the two meet. This chapter presents a detailed description of the mission area and will provide you with the best ideas of eliminating your targets.

Mission preparation

On the of the key items to take along for the mission is lethal poison. It can help you eliminate both of the targets. In the mission area, you will only find rat poisons. Also, you can consider taking a lockpick along, which will allow you to access quickly the staff room in the Cafe (M10,5), without the necessity to find the key.

In mission "A house Built on Sand", there is only one Agency stash, which you can find on the rooftop of the building in the Western part of the market place (M10,15). It is a good idea to select sniper rifle to be delivered there, although, you should realize that sniping the targets down will require you to reach vantage points.

In this mission, there also is one starting point, which is the vicinity of the (unavailable) embassy in the Southern part of the map (M10,1). Your default suit will allow you to move around majority of the map, although infiltrating the VIP-only area in the café (M10,2) and the place where Mendola and Kwang meet (M10,12) will be more difficult. On the map, there are four Shopkeeper disguises (M10,5) and a handyman disguise (M10,7), although it is best to reach the sick bodyguard in one of the side alleys (M10,19) straight away. It is not too difficult to eliminate the guard. Thanks to wearing his disguise, you will be able to access the rest of the areas that can be only accessed by authorized personnel.

Mission information

Your targets are Matthieu Mendola and Kong Tuo-Kwang. They are scheduled to meet on the rooftop of one of the buildings in the market place (M10,12). However, the meeting will not take place before you perform several actions first. By default, Matthieu Mendola is traveling around various parts of the market place and stops, among others, by the snail stand (M10,2), in the phone booth (M10,4) and at the fortune teller's (M10,5). Kong Tuo-Kwang, on the other hand, is staying in the VIP area all the time, in Shisha Café (M10,3) where he is smoking the pipe (M10,7) or visiting the room with the oil lamp (M10,9). For details on their routes, see the next page of this guide.

Difficulty levels: "A house Built on Sand" is a mission of medium difficulty level. One of the things that make it difficult is the size of the map itself, even though that the school, the embassy and the tunnel are no longer accessible. Finding some of the mission items and items of interest can be time-consuming. Fortunately enough, the assassination part is not that demanding. You can kill Mendola and Kwang in a variety of ways, either the more, or the less time-consuming. An additional facilitation is the fact that you can easily obtain the disguise of the bodyguard and other useful disguises.
