Hitman's sixth elusive contract - The Twin

Hitman's latest Elusive Target Contract will have you visit the sunny coastal town of Sapienza, though the mission is going to be anything but a vacation. Unlike the previous five Elusive Contracts, the one released today will have you take down a target that only ever travels with their identical twin nearby, and naturally, hurting the wrong one will spell instant doom for your mission.

The twins will be in Sapienza for the next couple of days, so make sure not to delay for too long or you might just miss them and a chance at some nifty cosmetic prizes. Here's a brief mission trailer, courtesy of your handler Diana:


If this is your first Elusive Target Contract and you have no idea what's going on, allow me to give you a brief rundown on what to expect. These missions will appear periodically and only last for a couple of days, after which they will be gone forever, and to top it all off, you have to complete them on your first try as failure means the target will escape and the mission will be over. Each of these missions will reuse a previously released map, though your targets will be newly added NPCs with their own little quirks and movement patterns, so even if you know each map inside and out you're still probably going to be in the dark until you can gather more information.

This might sound incredibly unfair, and to be perfectly honest it is, but its also the main reason these missions are so interesting to do. Every move you make matters, your ability to quickly plan ahead is stretched to its very limits, and even the most boring of take-downs suddenly become nerve-wracking when you know a single alarm might spell your doom. It might not be for everyone, but there's no harm in giving it a try as you don't lose anything for failing, and even if you succeed in completing a whole series of them you'll "only" receive a slightly different black suit.

Speaking of which, the suit you will receive for 5 successfully completed contracts is the signature suit from Hitman: Absolution. Here's how it looks like:
