A New Life is the fifth mission in Hitman: Blood Money. Agent 47 is tasked with killing Vinnie "Slugger" Sinistra, a former Cuban crime lord, and retrieving a microfilm hidden in a necklace owned by Vinnie's wife.

Mission information


We're sending you down to the other end of the state, 47. The target's a gangster by the name of Vinnie Sinistra. He's in a witness protection program pending a court appearance later this month. Our client wants to be sure Sinistra doesn't make it to the witness box. Sinistra's also got some hard evidence that can't be allowed to see the light of day. Our clients think it may be on a bit of microfilm, ensure that you retrieve it. Sinistra is extremely unstable and hasn't taken well to suburban life. They're having a birthday party for the youngest child on Sunday, and this may give you the angle you need to get in. The house is being monitored and protected by the feds, so extreme discretion is required. Tread lightly, 47.


  • Garbage trucks can dispose of all kinds of waste.
  • The surveillance team has an unhealthy appetite for donuts.
  • Vinnie has complained about the neighbor's son taking pot shots into the garden with an air rifle.
  • Vinnie lives close to a veterinary surgeon. Sometimes a vet needs to tranquilize wild animals!
  • Rumor has it that Vinnie's wife flirts with hired staff, but Vinnie trusts her completely.
  • Some field agents are too nosy in teenage girls' rooms.
  • A barbecue is being prepared for the party. Be careful with flammable liquids!
  • Vinnie just bought a very expensive and unusual necklace for his wife.


  1. Kill Vinnie Sinistra.
  2. Retrieve the microfilm.
  3. Escape the suburb.



  • SLP .40 - On most guards and in a weapon stash in the house.
  • Bull .480 - Vinnie's prefered weapon.
  • Air Rifle - In the treehouse, next to Vinnie's house.
  • MP7 - In a weapon stash in the house and on most FBI agents that arrive by limo backup.
  • Nailer - In the basement.

Melee Weapons


  • FBI Agent - Can move everywhere without getting frisked. The best disguise in the level.
  • Clown - Allowed only in some areas of the house. Useful for getting the microfilm.
  • Caterer - Allowed only in some areas of the house.
  • Pool Cleaner - Allowed only in some areas of the house. Useful for getting the microfilm.
  • Garbageman - Allowed only near the garbage cans, but not in the house.


Agent 47 eliminates Vinnie, and is able to retrieve the microfilm from Vinnie's wife.


  • Unlike in Hitman: Contracts, the Dog in this mission, that guards the direct entrance to the backyard, will not be shown on the map.
  • The FBI Agent backup will be dispatched after they discover the corpse, if you create a lot of noise like detonate a RU-AP mine in the house, the backup will arrive as well.
  • This is the only mission in Blood Money that backup units arrive from the outside of the map (although some characters arrive well after the start of the level in A House of Cards). This feature is reused in some missions in Hitman: Absolution.
    • Interestingly, Vinnie's death will not trigger the backup.
  • Throwing Vinnie's wife's body over the railing and into the sewers without taking the microfilm necklace off her body will result in mission failure. The same will occur if you place her body in the garbage truck and then recycle her.
  • The back license plate of the garbage truck says "BADBLOD", either "Bad Blood" misspelled or "bad blod", which in Danish literally means "Bath Blood".
  • The garbage truck can be used to dispose of dead bodies or to make accident kills; curiously, the body capacity is infinite.
  • The TV has a picture of a tropical jungle with closed captions on the bottom of the screen. The captions in white text read: "Sometimes some water can be a big reward a day like this".
  • Both the license plates of the caterer's delivery vehicle say "MUNCH1"; "munch" means to eat something with a continuous and often audible action of jaws.
  • Corky the Clown often goes to his own vehicle to have a slight drink. He can be sedated or killed and placed in a box in the back of his car. 
  • You need to find the dart in the clinic to fire the air rifle. Unlike ammunition in other levels, the dart counts as stand-alone item and will be shown in 47's inventory.
  • Completion of this mission for the first time you will unlock the 10th and 11th slot of weapon upgrades.
  • The mission takes place on May 15, 2004.
  • The name of the catering company, Wong Wei Dung, could be an innuendo for "Wrong Way Shit" since dung is another word for excrement.
  • The client who ordered this hit is a female, and she lost her place in the Cuban government after the hit.
  • Knocking Mrs. Sinistra out while she is in the indoor pool will result in an "accidental" kill.
  • There is a bug in the 360 HD Combo that prevents being able to throw a body over the indoor balcony. Pushing a person over is almost impossible.
  • In total there are 31 killable NPCs.
  • This mission is referenced in the "World of Assassination" trailer for HITMAN™, as the narrator mentions that " San Diego, an informant is killed in an accident, a microfilm is stolen and a mafia trial is cancelled for lack of evidence" with the year 2004 on the screen, which is the year that this mission takes place.[1]
  • Trying to carry the Air Rifle from the tree house to the outdoor ICA crate is too risky and likely to result in getting caught. An alternative approach is to throw said Air Rifle into the Sinistras backyard so it will be picked up by an FBI agent and placed in the Guard Quarters in the house. It'll be much easier to reclaim the rifle from that location and taken into the nearby basement where another ICA crate is located.
