This walkthrough shows how to do Silent Assassin, Suit Only Challenge in Hitman 3 Berlin (Germany). This takes place in mission “Apex Predator”.
To get Silent Assassin, Suit Only you can’t kill anyone except your targets, have no bodies found, don’t be detected, and do it all in your suit without putting on disguises. It’s the hardest challenge in each level. In the Game Options under Gameplay, HUD turn on “Silent Assassin HUD”. This shows two green pistols in the bottom left of the screen to confirm you haven’t broken stealth (if it turns red you failed and must reload the previous save).
Note: For the “Sniper Assassin” Challenge you can follow the same route described here, but you will need to take out the targets with a silenced sniper rifle instead of chokeholds / accidents (kill all 5 targets with a Sniper Rifle and don’t get compromised).
- Starting Location: Radio Tower
- Smuggled Item: None
- Gear: Coin
- Suit: 47’s Signature Suit
- Concealed Weapon: ICA19 (Silenced Pistol)
- Gear 2: Lockpick (doesn’t really matter, no need to use it)
- Other prerequisites: None
Note: The easiest / quickest 5 targets we will go for are: Agent Thames, Agent Green, Agent Swan, Agent Rhodes, Agent Tremaine. After you finish Apex Predator for the first time all 10 possible ICA Targets will be shown with red outlines and get marked on the map with their exact names. If in doubt about anything, refer to the in-game map for the target name so you can track them down more easily.
Step 1: From the start head around the left side of the nightclub (don’t go inside / don’t go to the right). This left path has two guards on the road. In front of the 2 guards take a right turn and you can climb over the wall to get behind them. You will now be in the area behind the nightclub, but before the Biker Hangout.
Step 2: Sneak behind the long red metal object on the left past the two enemies standing in this area. Pick up the crowbar from here (important), we will need it later! At the end of the area you will find Agent Thames (1/5) near a crane. Throw a coin into the bushes at the very end of the path, out of sight of other enemies. This will lure him to the bushes and you can take him out easily. Drag his corpse into the bushes to hide it.
Step 3: Sneak through the bushes towards the Biker Hangout. Go through the hole in the fence so the two guards here don’t notice you. Then climb up the containers on the right (across from the biker club, the blue container behind a parked car). Keep climbing until you have reached the top of a ladder and you will see two enemies patrolling the roof in front of you. One of them is Agent Green (2/5). Use the fusebox on the left to distract the first guard. Then wait for Agent Green to have his back to you and kill him.
Step 4: Go back to the Biker Hangout from where you came (climb back down). Now climb over the wall to the Party Area (called Juice Bar on map). Agent Swan (3/5) is patrolling this area. There are a few ways to take him out: when he stops next to a red explosive propane tank you can shoot it with your silenced pistol for an accident kill (as long as nobody sees you shooting it’s fine and the explosion won’t void Silent Assassin). Or you could shoot the lights when he walks under them for another accident outcome. Or wait until he goes to the porta potties (nobody watching here), throw a coin to distract him and kill him from behind, then store his body in the box near the porta potties. Just remember the accident outcomes are fine even if people find the body (because they think it’s an accident), but you can’t kill any non-targets by accident!
Step 5: Climb the containers to reach Floor 01 of the Biker Club (a red container with graffiti on it, in the area that has a delivery driver in red clothes walking around). Now you’re inside the Biker Club where our last 2 targets will be.
Step 6: On Floor 01 of the Biker Club our next Target Agent Rhodes (4/5) is walking around the “Grow House” area. Activate the Sprinkler Unit just outside the Grow House when he walks near it. This will lure him out. Alternatively, throw a coin at the exit of the Grow House when he’s near. When he comes to investigate the noise, take him out. Just drag his body behind the Sprinkler Unit (if you activated it, turn it off so the noise doesn’t attract others). No need to stash his body, nobody should come there.
Step 7: Go to Floor 02 of Biker Hideout. Subdue the two guards, then kill Agent Tremaine (5/5), he’s the guy with the sniper rifle.
Step 8: Backtrack all the way you came from. If you have any visible weapons on your back, dispose of them before walking past the crowd by the exit (otherwise they will see the gun and you are compromised). You can use the bicycle near the disco entrance to exfiltrate.
If you did everything correctly, you will earn Silent Assassin, Suit Only + Silent Assassin + Suit Only in one go. It’s best to do a separate run for “Sniper Assassin” here, which is easy by taking down all targets with a Sniper Rifle from the Radio Tower and Rooftops, or follow the same steps again and just use a Silenced Sniper to kill all enemies (in this case you’ll want to lure the third target to the porta potties instead of doing an accident kill).
