Sergei Larin was the first ever elusive target.

Elusive targets is a feature in Hitman which adds a new target to an already existing destination but only for a limited time. Once they are gone, they will never return.

Information Edit

An elusive target is a one time opportunity target, meaning you only get one attempt and one assassination. If you die, the contract will fail and you will be unable to try it ever again. Elusive targets are released sporadically by the game developers and once a target is released, there are only 48 hours of time available to try out the mission.

Compared to regular contracts, there is now a real backstory to the mission and the target has it's own conversations within the game. An elusive target can not be found in the regular episodic mission belonging to the destination, but you might be able to find references to the target already before he's been released as an elusive contract. Once an elusive target is released, you may also be able to learn things about the story of the location which you didn't fully understand when doing the episodic mission.

Rules Edit

  • You must begin the contract before the countdown expires.
  • If 47 is killed, you may not retry the contract.
  • Once you have completed the contract and successfully exited, you may not retry the contract.
  • Once your target has been killed, you may no longer restart the contract.
  • You cannot save your game while playing an Elusive Target.
  • The contract briefing may contain additional fail conditions.

Gameplay Edit

Since everything is new once an elusive target has been released, you will need to explore and find the target within the map. You also have to study their movement, learning what they do before coming up with your assassination plan. The elusive target does not appear on the in-game minimap as a target and not while using instinct either.

Similar to escalations, additional interactable objects or items, as well as new NPCs apart from the elusive target itself, may be added to an elusive target's mission.
