metal detector is a device which responds to metal that may not be readily apparent. However, there are gadgets that Agent 47 uses that can't be detected by the Metal Detector such as the RU AP Mine. Briefcases immune to Metal Detectors are also sold by the ICA to carry sniper rifles


Metal detectors are mostly carried by guards standing near doors or an area where your target will be. The guard who has it will check you before you enter, and if you have no weapons on you, he will let you in. Otherwise, the area will be at full alert and your enemies will start to attack.

If you attempt to avoid the check, the guards will warn you to step back with their guns. If you continue, the guards will open fire. In Blood Money, though, you can just go away and the guards won't seem to care.

In some missions, such as in Traditions of the Trade and Amendment XXV, there is a traditional metal detector (stationary one). If it goes off, a guard nearby will try to search you, and will shoot you when he finds any weapons.
