- Hendrik Schmutz
- Tariq Abdul Lateef
- Sheik Mohammad Bin Faisal Al-Khalifa
Welcome to Las Vegas, 47. There's a white supremacist from South Africa, his name is Hendrik Schmutz, who is trying to sell some DNA material and lab reports to the wealthy Mohammad Faisal Al-Khalifa. The sheikh is working for someone else, but we're not sure who. Our client wants to force them into the open by disrupting the deal. You've got three targets: the Afrikaner, the sheikh, and the sheikh’s scientist, who'll be there to verify the material. We've been losing a lot of agents lately, 47. Any mission could be a set-up at this point.
- It would be wise to check in at the reception as one of the first things you do at the casino.
- Security is very tight in high profile casinos, so staff have keycards which only provide access to the floors they work on.
- As requested, we have left you an agency pickup in your hotel room.
- The casino has strict fire-safety procedures. Easily accessible fire alarms are located on the top floors.
- It's important to find good vantage points. Room balconies may provide this.
- The VIP Lounge has been reserved all day by the Sheikh - only waiters are allowed in this area.
- There is no cell phone coverage inside the casino to prevent cheating. Anyone receiving a call has to step outside.
- The items used in the trade are carried around in an ordinary looking suitcase so they don't catch too much attention.

- Kill Hendrik Schmutz
- Kill Sheikh Mohammad Bin Faisal Al-Khalifa

- This is the only mission that ICA crate will have some equipment for 47 even he did not equip anything.
- The mission takes place on June 9, 2005, while the next mission takes place next door few months later.
- The mission's newspaper has an article of a mysterious Southern high-roller using a fake name.
- If you try hitching a ride on the elevator to a floor you don't have a keycard for, the security guard will demand to see your keycard.
- Xbox 360 version has a very bad sound glitch that shows up consistently when entering certain locations including visiting the drunk lady on Floor 7, stepping out on the rooftop where the target answers his phone, etc.
- If the sheikh's scientist sees you standing on the ledge next to the balcony of your hotel room, he will immediately leave the safety of his own hotel room, take the elevator to the 7th floor, and run straight into your hotel room (and consequently your trap) to tell you to stop.
