What are Elusive Targets?
An Elusive Target is the closest thing to the Hitman fantasy that we've ever created. These targets will be custom-created characters that are added to existing locations and are only there for a limited time in real-time. You'll only have one chance to take them down. If you die, you cannot restart and if you kill the target, that’s a permanent record of how you performed. There are no do-overs and no second chances.
Each Elusive Target will have a custom briefing video, a backstory and a unique reason for being in that location. When you're actually playing in the location, the Elusive Target will not appear on the map and will not appear in Instinct. In order to find them, you'll need to use clues from the briefing video and a photograph that you will be able to review. You'll need to explore, find your target, learn their patterns and come up with a plan to eliminate them - all whilst playing.
If I miss Elusive Targets will I have an opportunity to play them in the future?
You'll only have one chance to take down an Elusive Target. If you die, you cannot restart and if you kill the target, that’s a permanent record of how you performed. An Elusive Target is only active in the game for the time period of the contract. They cannot be accessed outside of this time window.
Will Elusive Targets rerun/repeat at some point?
There are no current plans to repeat Elusive Targets in HITMAN 2.
