Hitman: Absolution Mega Guide – Tips, Strategies, Challenges, Unlockables and more

Everything you need to know about Hitman: Absolution.

Posted By | On 22nd, Nov. 2012

Hitman: Absolution is something that contains a lot of content and unlockables, and during the first playthrough you probably won’t find anything concrete about the game because it will be all trial and error.

The game was already reviewed by us and our author John gave it a glowing 9/10 score. You can read that review here. The game shows the return of Agent 47 in what is a revenge filled story combined with what he does best, that is sneaking past opponents or taking them head on.

Since the guide will contain a lot of things including Easter Eggs it is interesting to see what the developers have added to the game, and this also indirectly tells us how excited they were when creating this game. Let’s begin with the guide, check out the achievements below that you will need to get.

These achievements are pretty straightforward and varied too, so you will have a good time doing things in this game.
