This walkthrough shows how to do Silent Assassin, Suit Only Challenge in Hitman 3 Dartmoor (England). This takes place in mission “Death in the Family”. We will also combine it with the Sniper Assassin Challenge in this guide.
To get Silent Assassin, Suit Only you can’t kill anyone except your target, 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). For “Sniper Assassin” you must kill your target with a Sniper Rifle which can be combined nicely in this mission!
- Starting Location: Main Road
- Smuggled Item: None
- Gear 1: ICA Briefcase MK III + Sniper Rifle (any)
- Suit: 47’s Signature Suit
- Concealed Weapon: Doesn’t matter, won’t be using pistols
- Gear 2: Coin
- Other prerequisites: Should have opened this level’s Maintenance Ladder Shortcut.
Step 1: Immediately when the level starts, select the ICA Briefcase from the item wheel and unbox the Sniper Rifle that you put in the briefcase via your loadout. We’ll need this to combine our Silent Assassin, Suit Only run with the “Sniper Assassin” Challenge.
Step 2: Go through the bushes on the right, climb over the wall. Now instead of heading towards the manor, follow the path to the left until you reach the backside of the manor (behind the Trophy Room is where you want to be).
Step 3: There are some pipes going up the walls outside the Trophy Room entrance. Climb up via the pipes and shimmy along the ledges to the right until you reach another pipe going up. Climb this pipe, leading to the Maintenance Ladder Shortcut. You must have unlocked this shortcut in a previous playthrough (and finished the playthrough / started a new run to unlock it permanently). Climb up this ladder to reach the 3rd floor rooftop.
Step 4: Climb through the window into Alexa Carlisle’s Office. There should only be one guard here. Throw a coin to distract him, choke him out from behind (non-lethal), and store his body in the box in this room. If anyone else is in the room just wait for them to leave before throwing the coin.
Step 5: In the same room you can grab the case file. Simply click the button on the armrest of the office chair, then a picture frame will move (next to the desk) to reveal a safe. Enter combination 1975 to open the safe.
Step 6: Enter Alexa’s Private Room, which is on the left side of her office. It looks like a soundproof room with some red padding all over the walls. There’s a button at the end of the room that opens a door to a secret passage. Enter this secret passage.
Step 7: Wait in the secret passage for a few minutes until Alexa comes to her Private Room. It can take 5-10 minutes on average.
Step 8: When she enters this room she will leave her bodyguard outside. She will be alone and shout some curse words. Then she sits on a chair and cries into a pillow. You can watch her through the peephole. When she cries into her pillow she won’t notice you. Choke her out from behind. Nobody will notice.
Step 9: Drag her unconscious body into the secret passage. Close the door behind you. Now you can shoot her in the head with the sniper rifle to fulfill the “Sniper Assassin” Challenge. If you stand in the secret passage corner that’s furthest from Alexa’s bodyguard he won’t hear the gunshot. Remember to hide Alexa’s body in the box of the secret passage.
Step 10: Exit the secret room through the other door (leading to 2nd floor hallway). Immediately turn right and climb through the open window at the end of the hallway.
Step 11: Backtrack the same way you came. Shimmy all the way left until you reach the balcony above the Trophy Room. Hang down the ledge and slide down the pipe at the balcony. Backtrack through the gardens and leave via the exit where the mission started. There are lots of bushes for you to hide along the way.
If you did everything correctly, you will earn all classic challenges in one go. Silent Assassin, Suit Only + Silent Assassin + Suit Only + Sniper Assassin + The Classics for 20,000XP (4 Mastery Levels).
