The first Elusive Target, or Elusive Target, of Hitman 3 is the Deceivers. These were already an Elusive Target in Hitman 2, but are now returning to Sapienza. Players who were unable to eliminate the deceivers at the time will again have the chance to unlock a suit by successfully completing the mission.

Elusive targets are special orders that are only available for a certain period of time. In the case of the deceivers, this is until the first week of March. These missions can only be performed once. So if you die during the mission, you cannot try it again. Likewise, the mission rating cannot be increased through further attempts. Elusive targets can neither be detected via the map, nor can Agent 47 perceive them in his instinct mode. However, the briefing for each Elusive Target provides an indication of the location of the target. If you don't want any spoilers for the mission, you should skip the following paragraph, as we give a few tips here on how to successfully switch off the two goals.

The Deceivers are composed of Richard J. Magee and Anthony L. Troutt. If you start in the ICA shelter, you can access the wine cellar via the kitchen of the adjacent property. Here you either turn off the waiters or sneak past them to poison the glass of wine that is waiting for Troutt at the end of the aisle. Deadly poison is obtained, among other things, for reaching championship level 10 in Berlin. You then leave the property again and head towards the main square. If you go through the gate behind the café on the Hautplatz, you will find a rain gutter. Climbing this one is right next to the room Magee should be in at the moment. This can then be easily attracted and switched off. Of course, this is only one way to complete the mission. There are definitely no limits to your creativity.

The IO Interactive promised changes An Elusive Targets have definitely not yet been introduced with the Deceivers, as this mission is still played in the same way as in Hitman 2. Whether IO has now discarded the new system or will only use it for other Elusive Targets, only the future will tell.
