Hitman 3 Sniper Assassin guide for Dubai

Some of the most difficult challenges in Hitman 3 are “Silent Assassin” and “Sniper Assassin”. We have already covered the Silent Assassin challenge, suit only for Dubai. In this guide, we’ll also show you how to unlock the Sniper Assassin challenge.

Before taking up this challenge, we recommend that you attend the Dubai Writing Mission at least once. If you already know roughly where the main places on the map are, it will be easier for you.

Required items

Error: The file name is not specified.

Loading and unloading for a sniper attack is very specific. The starting point must be a place where you can take the case, which is why we chose the atrium. You need coins and weapons with silencers. Your outfit does not matter, so choose something nice, because you will not change clothes during the race.

After all, you need a briefcase and a sniper rifle. Either one is good. You can get the great combination we have in the picture above by completing Lee Hong’s Bypass Escalade.

Step 1 – Arrange a meeting

In the first part of this race, we’re going to eliminate a few NPCs that might stand in our way. It’s a big effort, but the result is worth it.

From the atrium, go up the stairs and follow them to the left. You should go to the Black Gold Bar. On the left side of the bar, there are blue curtains. Behind them, there is another ladder that you need to climb.

Error: The file name is not specified.

At the top of the stairs, turn right. You can only enter here after going through the double doors at the end. Take a deep breath, instinctively make sure the guard on the other side doesn’t see you, then run in and out through the double doors in front of you.

Error: The file name is not specified.

Keep running and go up the stairs behind the doors. It may seem reckless, but if you’ve been running the whole time, you shouldn’t have been seen.

Error: The file name is not specified.

You can go slower at the top of the stairs. This is a technical room with lots of equipment and two NPCs. You have to wait until they are both working on the equipment before you pass them on the left through the low boxes.

If you go to the left, you will see a crowbar lying on one of the crates. Pick it up. We’ll use it later.

Error: The file name is not specified.

Turn in here and you’ll see a blue tarp over the railing. You need to jump over it and then turn left so that you are under the balcony and looking at the corridor above.

Error: The file name is not specified.

You must flip a coin and distract the guard. The patrol takes him from the ladder to the water fountain and back. When he is on the ladder, toss a coin to distract him.

Error: The file name is not specified.

Use your briefcase to get the guards away. Then you need to drag his body to the maintenance room after he leaves this position. This is the door you see in the picture above. The janitor will be there, but he won’t notice you if you hide the body in the locker.

Error: The file name is not specified.

Just to be sure, remove the janitor from this room with a hammer. Then he hid her body in the same safe. We’ll do something later to warn him. Better safe than sorry.

Error: The file name is not specified.

Now it’s time to go back to the door to the right of the water fountain that the guard was so interested in. At the end of this corridor are two janitors. One of them is standing by the railing and is talking on the phone. The others are patrolling here, but then go back to the corner.

Error: The file name is not specified.

Treat the first cleaner with what you have on hand. Then use your briefcase to clean the second one. There is a cabinet around the corner where you can hide both bodies.

Error: The file name is not specified.

Go back to where the first janitor was, by the railing. She must have dropped the key card. It goes to the server room in the same hallway.

Error: The file name is not specified.

Take it and go to the door where the guard was standing. The door to the server room is now on the right.

Error: The file name is not specified.

Use the map to get into the server room. Once inside, a cylinder will emerge from the floor. Now, you must pull the card through this device.

Error: The file name is not specified.

This is part of one of the missions in Dubai. One of the four server towers around you now displays yellow text instead of green. Find the yellow server tower and interact with it. Agent 47 will take out the rack, giving you access to the terminal in the room.

Error: The file name is not specified.

Once in the terminal, you need to go to the options “03” and “01”. Doing this in this order will disable all cameras in the building and redistribute the encounter between your two targets.

Error: The file name is not specified.

Go through the double doors of the server room and you will enter the maintenance room where the janitor used to be. Leave this room and enter the hallway where the guard was standing before you let him out. Turn right and walk down the hallway. Follow the doors to the left and stop at the door to the penthouse.

Error: The file name is not specified.

Use the crowbar to open the door and go up the stairs to the top. Go through the front door and stop as you enter the penthouse. Use your instincts to see where your target is. If you are lucky, no one will be there to see you.

Error: The file name is not specified.

The crate is just around the corner from the position in the photo above. Quickly go to the corner and jump in. This will hide Agent 47 and his suspicious briefcase.

Step 2 – Eliminate Targets

With all these parameters, all you have to do is wait. The two targets will enter this room and sit on the sofas. The guards will also leave the room, so you can get out of the box and hide behind the counter. One of the targets will notice you and get up, but if you are quick, they will sit back down just as quickly.

Error: The file name is not specified.

Once the targets start talking, a hint with a danger sign appears in the window behind this bar. The room is thus secured, which means that the guards cannot enter it. Since this is part of the distraction, both targets will also look away from your position.

Take the opportunity to get your sniper rifle out of your briefcase.

Error: The file name is not specified.

When both targets are at the top, move to the right of the crossbar and aim down with your weapon sight. You can shoot and kill both targets in one second. If you have a sniper rifle with penetrating bullets, you can even take them both out at once.

Error: The file name is not specified.

Step 3 – Closing

Put the sniper rifle back in the case and hide the bodies in the chest. Although not necessary, you can unlock the “Silent Assassin” challenge if you hide the bodies. This also makes it much easier to stay hidden when no one is looking for the killer.

When you’re done, deactivate the lock using the same button that activated it. You have to go down the same stairs as you did to get here. Unfortunately, there is a guard on the way. Use the suitcase to take him out.

Error: The file name is not specified.

You need to hide this body in the room by the door on the right, right across from the guard in the picture above. There is another NPC there, but he will not see you succeed. Hide the guard in the freezer. You can also remove this second NPC and hide him there if you want.

Error: The file name is not specified.

Take your briefcase and leave it in this room. If you don’t, the guards will take it from you and leave their usual patrols.

Now, you can go back, but it’s not a challenge. Our route is a little riskier, if you’re up for it.

Once you’ve done all that, head down the stairs. Use your instincts to avoid being caught by someone approaching them. Once down, turn left and go to the window. Use the camera to unlock it.

Error: The file name is not specified.

Jump out the window and over the edge of the scaffolding here on the left. Wiggle down, slide down and then wiggle back.

Error: The file name is not specified.

There is only one path, so you must follow it. Eventually you’ll come to another scaffold outside the window. Use the camera to unlock it, but don’t go in yet.

Error: The file name is not specified.

Wait for the NPCs to finish smoking and move on. Then take the window and go to the door in the upper right corner of the picture above. Now you need to go up the stairs to the laundry room. Stop outside.

Error: The file name is not specified.

Use your instincts to make sure the NPCs in the washroom don’t see you. When you are safe, storm in and check on them. Hide the body in the laundry basket.

Error: The file name is not specified.

The black and gold door in this section leads to the black and gold bar bathroom. You must hurry as soon as you open it to avoid being in danger. When you are done, you can go to one of the exits. We recommend the atrium because it is safe.
