    There are a total of 17 shortcuts in the six main campaign levels. Once you've opened/unlocked them they'll remain unlocked for any future playthroughs.

    The shortcuts are broken down as follows:
    - Dubai - 4 shortcuts
    - Dartmoor - 2 shortcuts
    - Berlin - 3 shortcuts
    - Chongqing - 3 shortcuts
    - Mendoza - 3 shortcuts
    - Carpathian mountains - 2 shortcuts (But if you get them in order you won't need these for the achievement.

    Below I've linked youtuber MrFreeze2244's video walkthroughs for unlocking all of the shortcuts (his walkthrough videos are, in my opinion, the best out there, I'd highly recommended checking out his videos if you're struggling with any challenges).

    Dubai (4 shortcuts)

    Dartmoor (2 shortcuts)

    Berlin (3 shortcuts)

    Chongqing (3 shortcuts)

    Mendoza (3 shortcuts)

    Carpathian Mountains (2 shortcuts)
    Note that this video actually covers all the challenges for the Carpathian Mountains (except suit only / silent assassin). If you follow through from the start you'll unlock the first shortcut at 6:32, and the second at 9:24.

    Funky MonkeeI have all 15 shortcut challenges from the first 5 levels unlocked and the achievement hasn't popped. Perhaps unlocking a shortcut and then reloading a save from before the shortcut was opened screws with it or something. Hopefully it'll pop when I unlock the last 2 shortcuts

    Pat MustardI have all shortcuts in the game unlocked now and it won't pop

    Edit: Popped after I reloaded into Chongqing! Must have been an issue with saves

    Funky MonkeeI have all shortcuts but can't get it to pop. Seems bugged

    Funky MonkeeThe latest patch has supposedly fixed some achievements but this one still won't pop

    FruitDogs@Funky Monkee - I had the same problem, reset all my progress in Hitman 3, and re-did the levels & the shortcuts and it just popped for me.

    Funky Monkee@FruitDogs thanks. I will give it a bit more time in case it gets fixed and if not then I'll try this. Would quite like to keep progress though 😂
