    Hitman: Absolution can corrupt your game save, so I recommend you copy it to a USB stick frequently.

    There are 278 available challenges over the 18 levels that have challenges. You cannot complete challenges on Easy difficulty, only on Normal, Hard, Expert and Purist. You only need to complete a total of 100 challenges for this achievement, so you don't really need to keep replaying levels to complete challenges. You can review your progress from the Absolution Main Menu by selecting Unlocks then Challenges. Completing challenges adds a bonus to your score for that level, improving your rating and making it easier to unlock Technique Upgrades.

    You will get a completed challenge for finishing each level, so that is 18. You will need to complete 18 challenges for collecting evidence towards
    Hitman: AbsolutionInformation is PowerThe Information is Power achievement in Hitman: Absolution worth 95 pointsCollect all evidence
    There are 18 challenges for using all the disguises and another 18 for not using disguises. You can even complete both of those challanges in a single playthrough, each time you find and use a disguise reload the checkpoint.

    That leaves 28 challenges for you to complete. There are 18 for not being detected, but that depends on how stealthy you are. You will certainly complete several challenges during the course of the game as they are related to you completing your objectives and are hard to miss. If you do complete every challenge each level, then you will get this achievement after level 7 - Welcome to Hope.
