Hitman Blood Money Tips and Tricks
With the impending release of Hitman Absolution this year, I thought I would go back and play Hitman Blood Money after a long absence. What I have noticed is that since the last time I played it, my skills weren't the best, so I thought I would share some tips and tricks with you all.
First of all, if you're going for the silent assassin rating, you can't use any guns at all, it'll blow your chances of doing so. Also, the use of guns is strongly ill advised since you'll most likely be heard. The exception to this is the use of the silenced SilverBaller, which is an amazing gun. When you use this, as long as the room only has your victim, you can happily plug them and it won't alert anyone else.
I would suggest that you upgrade your items so you can carry at least two RC mines. This way, you can rig 'accidents' such as pianos falling on people and still walk away with arousing suspicion.
Next up is to know your surroundings, and always be aware of the situation. You might be in a great position to whack someone, but there's also a chance that someone else could walk into the room and scupper your plans. This would be a disastrous situation and could result in you having to restart the level. It's always worth doing a walk around of the map and then acting, rather going for the kill straight away.
A crucial element of this game though is blending in with the other characters on the map. This is done by eliminating an enemy and 'borrowing' their clothes so you'll be seen as a member of staff, and not as an imposter. A point to note though is that when you're done with killing a character, hide their body! This could be done by putting them into a closed off room, throwing them into a dumpster or firing them into a freezer cabinet. In nearly every mission, you do need to get a disguise, but if the body that you took it from is found, your cover will be blown and they'll shoot you on site!
I've included a video below showing you what not to do. I'll also be making walkthroughs of each mission, so if you subscribe to my YouTube channel, you'll be updated when a new video is uploaded.
