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 completing these contracts are special suit unlocks.

To coincide with the GOTY edition's release in November 2017, the current roster of Elusive Targets have been reactivated. Important note for existing players: any of the previous ET's that you have successfully completed or failed is permanent. Only those you have missed or never attempted will appear when reactivated.

I'll try to keep this up-to-date as humanly possible. If you're unsure about an upcoming contract or maybe you're wondering if you missed one, check below.

Poison his port sitting on barrel when he goes to celkar. Housekeeping outfit is only one that no one, not even head butler alerts on.

That was the method I used as well. What's weird is while I completed the mission with 5 stars, I didn't receive the Silent Assassin challenge. Total BS.

I dig some digging and yeah, apparently poison kills don't offer the same exception to bodies found that accident kills do. I was under the impression it did because I would always get 5 stars with a no bodies found bonus when playing contracts and poisoning the target. But it seems that is a glitch and I should have received 4 stars. At least now I know.

(super late) EDIT: one of the latest patches have changed how poison kills work. Now, poison kills do offer the same protection as accident kills where bodies can be found but don't affect your score. Too bad it's not retroactive...

Heads up on the next elusive contract this Wednesday. You will have 72 hours to finish this one, as oppose to the 48 hour window of the previous two contracts.

Great post :)

It's been two weeks, so I was hoping for news of our next contract.

Great timing! They have just released an image teasing the next elusive target. We don't know the name or place yet, but we know it's this Friday. My guess is the target is called "The Hacker" and might be a reference to Deus Ex releasing this week.

The Black Hat, Owen "Protagonist" Wagner, Paris

Shotgun to the face did the trick.

I've not played Elusive Target since I killed the wrong twin. Somehow, the schedule coincided with a few important events (or mishaps) in my life, and I simply had no time for them.

No worries, it sounds like they will have many more elusive targets, at least until the physical release in January and most likely even a little after.

How on earth did you finish this in 31 seconds shock First I went in as the Sheik to map out her movements. Then I restarted on the oil platform and shot her when she came out on the balcony.

That puts me at 4 for 4.
