Freeform Training was the first mission in HITMAN™, and the first part of the prologue missions.



Taking place prior to the events of Hitman: Codename 47, Agent 47 is given a simulated mission as his first entrance requirement to join the International Contract Agency. He is tasked with infiltrating a luxury yacht in order to assassinate Kalvin Ritter.

The mission is a recreated assignment using ICA training operatives, with simulated environments and weapons.


The mission takes place on a poor recreation of a yacht, resembling the setting for Kalvin Ritter's original assassination, used to test agents before acceptance into the International Contract Agency. The yacht is filled with innocent citizens, along with actors to represent special forces, including the target himself.

Escalation Contracts

There is currently only one escalation contract available in Freeform Training:

Mission Briefing

Guided Training

"Welcome to advanced training.

Your first mission originally took place in Sydney, Australia. The target was Kalvin Ritter also known as "The Sparrow," master thief for hire, specializing in rare and priceless art.

Our agent cleverly infiltrated Ritter's private yacht during a social gathering and discreetly eliminated him without any of the guests noticing. Now you will do the same.

Oh, and don't worry about the training operatives. All weapons are simulated. Good luck, Initiate."

Diana Burnwood

Freeform Training

Welcome back, Initiate.

As an ICA agent, every challenge you face can be overcome in multiple ways. Complete this exercise again, this time attacking it from a different angle. Vary your strategy, improvise.

We will be watching.

—Diana Burnwood


  1. Eliminate Kalvin Ritter
  2. Locate Exit

Target Lockdown

If the fire alarm goes off or Agent 47 is seen trying to kill, Kalvin will be escorted to the safe spot on the top of the yacht. If this safe spot is compromised, he will be escorted to his office instead.


No Intelligence Available.











  • According to an instruction booklet on the yacht, the whole ship is one set sold by IKEA.
