Elusive Targets are time-sensitive contracts that appear in the game for a limited time. You only get one chance to assassinate the target, and if you die, the contract is failed and cannot be retried. Rewards for successfully killing these targets are special suit unlocks.

This thread will serve as a hub of discussion and as a schedule for upcoming contracts. Expired targets will also be listed for posterity. I'll try to keep this up-to-date as humanly possible.

If you're curious about the Elusive Targets for Season One, check out my previous thread.

Elusive Target #1: The Undying
Location: Miami
EXPIRED: December 4, 2018 - 5:00 AM (PST)

Sean Bean, aka Elusive Target #1, is featured in the live-action trailer for HITMAN 2.

Also, by just playing the ET contract, you will unlock an explosive pen for use in other missions. It was the winner of the gadget vote as seen in the reveal trailer, beating out the earbuds garotte and the flashbang robot toy.

I'm glad that one won. Nice to see a Goldeneye reference. :D

Agreed!

Although, I also would've been okay with the earbuds garotte winning. If I had to guess, that one is a reference to The Living Daylights. I'm a big fan of Dalton as Bond, and that movie also featured a Walther WA2000 (aka the Sieger 300).

I was wondering if some would be interested in tackling the Sean Bean contract at the same time while in an Xbox Live party?

I've actually done that a few times with my buddy Sven -- pretty neat experience. I would be down -- unsure what our schedules are like though. I'm sure we'll be able to figure something out!

Great! My schedule can be flexible, especially with the Thanksgiving break coming up. The contract will also last 14 days, so that gives everyone plenty of time to rank up Miami and unlock some equipment before attempting the kill.

Alright agents, Sean Bean has arrived in Miami and your first Elusive Target contract is now active for the next 2 weeks! Remember, no second chances. If you die or successfully kill the target, there is no going back. To help, it seems there are more fleshed out opportunities this time around. Good luck!

There are no achievements related to Elusive Targets. However, just playing the contract will grant you an explosive pen unlock to use in other missions. Additionally, successfully killing the target will unlock a suit for your inventory, and doing it silent assassin will unlock another suit (the latter of which you'll have more opportunities to unlock later on).

Weekend is good for me too. For those who wanted to attempt this ET in a party, how does Saturday or Sunday sound?

Ended up doing him last night. Be interested to see if the next target is the one to do with Dave Ready.

This weekend might work out for me too especially since I'll have two days off this week.

Good stuff. I've also read some users are having trouble unlocking the Terminus suit after achieving SA. Hopefully that all will be fixed by the weekend.

What time works best for everyone on the weekend? I'll probably be online throughout the day, so I can be flexible.

Started off snagging a SA rating with my Mastery Level being 0 for the Miami level. :-)

Certainly would have been easier if I could have geared up, but just required me to disable the security system in the parking area. I did have to restart once -- possibly not needed -- but I took too long to speak with Dave Ready. Only restarted so I could experience the dialogue and glad I didn't skip it.

Anyway, after several minutes of following Mark Faba around, I got to enjoy an extended amount of conversation, which was quite enjoyable. During that time, I strategically bumped into both guards to delay them long enough to subdue and hid them away.

I eventually did the same with both engineers and Yu clearing out the "gadget area."

I heard others in this thread implement the pen as the killing blow, so I wanted to be different. I ended up using that android. Poked around and figured out I needed to find a picture of the target, so after some exploring, found one upstairs in his office and set the trap.

Meant to record this, but missed my opportunity since I didn't exactly know what the android was going to do. As soon as the target walked in, he was startled, glanced at the android -- might have mumbled "Oh bollocks" or something like that, lol -- and was gunned down.

It certainly caught me by surprise because I thought the android was going to attack him close counters! What made things a bit funny was that a guard just outside the area didn't notice anything at all, lol.

Fairly confident it would have been considered an accident kill if the target was found, but I ended up hiding the body anyway.

Well, that's my story!

I got a question: Is this target doable with the prologue of Hitman 2? Or do you have to buy the DLC (episodes) to kill him?

You need the map he is located on in order to complete the contract, so you would need Miami for this one.

And Miami is a episode or is it included in the prologue?
