    To earn mastery, you need to complete challenges listed for the Paris mission. These can be accessed at any time by hitting "select" and cycling over the the "Challenges" header. The assassination challenges give you 4,000 mastery each and are typically the easiest way to earn mastery for any level.

    The challenges you complete are unlocked immediately upon completion - you do not have to complete the level for credit. However, you will need to complete the level to earn the mastery points for completing the challenge.

    I suggest making three save files: one while you're in close proximity to Dalia, one for Viktor, and one when both targets are dead and you are near an exit. Reload your saves continuously to use different methods for killing Dalia and Viktor and once you've completed enough challenges, load the save near the exit to leave the level and earn your mastery points. Your progress is remembered across playthroughs.

    Drowning, poisoning, shooting, garroting, and using accident kills to eliminate targets all count as different challenges. By reloading saves, you can easily earn 50,000+ mastery points in about 20 minutes. To max out your mastery, you may have to dip into the more difficult challenges, but you can abuse saves to do this, as well.

    Some suggestions:
    - Grab emetic rat poison from the kitchens and meet Dalia while dressed as Helmut. Make a save before she steps away to take her phone call and poison her drink with both poisons. When she gets sick in the bathroom, drown her. Also be sure to shoot her on one of the save files. This will complete 5-6 challenges all worth 4,000 each.

    - Grab emetic rat poison from the kitchens again and read the recipe for a Bareknuckle Boxer in the basement kitchen. Grab the lethal poison from Dalia, as well, but use a different method to kill her to conserve the cyanide. While dressed as a waiter, make and poison Viktor's drink with both poisons (on different saves) and kill him similarly to the guide for Dalia above. This will net another 4-5 challenges.

    SkillickThis achievement is glitched for me, I reached Paris mastery level 20 and completed enough challenges to have earned this two times over. Saving, resetting and reinstalling the game hasn't helped.

    Just an FYI for anyone and everyone having issues, this achievement was originally glitched for several months on Hitman 2016 also. It wasn't resolved until a targeted patch was rolled out. It would seem the same issue is afflicting this game and may also have implications on other levels too. I would recommend anyone having issues to check out the comments on the original 2016 version's achievement (of the same name: 'City of Light') for more information. Fingers crossed.

    Edit: I've discovered a solution for anyone having trouble unlocking this achievement on Xbox. Navigate to the "Manage game & add-ons" section of Hitman 2 (you can access this by highlighting the game icon on the dashboard and pressing start); find the "Saved data" section and delete the save data pertaining to your Xbox Live account (not the "Reserved space"); delete your save data "from everywhere", then restart your game. Don't worry, this won't wipe your game progress, mastery, challenges completed etc - all of this progress is saved to your account via a cloud associated with the game - it only deletes your savegames. Hopefully this is helpful!
