The Shapiro Omen is an escalation contract in The Showstopper mission.

Completing all the levels will award the player with "The Shapiro Omen" feat.

Level 1

Objective Break and Enter: Break into the safe on the second floor and steal the contents.
Complications None
The only objective in this level is to break into a safe and get the vodka bottle in it. The only problem with this level is to determine which floor the safe is in. In the map, the safe is located on Level 3, what in the United States and Russia would be the third floor, but in many European countries is the second floor. Mixing the map following the US/Russian scheme with the briefing and other parts of the game following the European one is what causes trouble for some.

The safe is in Dalia Margolis' room, and it can be opened using a crowbar, a lockpick or using the key which is located on Margolis' office, next to the computer.

Level 2

Objective Break and Enter: Break into the safe on the second floor and steal the contents.
Target Sophus Fatale
Disguise Auction Staff
Weapon Any
Complications None
Same objective as the previous level, with an additional target to kill: Sophus Fatale, Margolis' assistant. The problem with Fatale is that he is always following Margolis, so it is difficult to gain access to him without subduing or killing Margolis.

One good opportunity presents itselt a couple of minutes after the start of the mission. Margolis will go to her room, while Fatale is in the auction room. After stopping near the window, Fatale will go to the room. She can be subdued before reaching the window and her body hidden, moments before Fatale enters the room. It is advisable to have auction staff disguise already so he can be killed straight away, although he can be subdued and then killed later when wearing the outfit.

Level 3

Objective Break and Enter: Break into the safe on the second floor and steal the contents.
Target Sophus Fatale
Disguise Auction Staff
Weapon Any
Complications Enhanced Enforcers: Auction staff see through the auction staff disguises.
The same level as the previous one, only having to pay attention to a couple auction staff members.

Level 4

Objective Break and Enter: Break into the safe on the second floor and steal the contents.
Target Sophus Fatale Martha Herris
Disguise Auction Staff Auction Staff
Weapon Any Any
Complications

Enhanced Enforcers: Auction staff see through the auction staff disguises.

The new target is Martha Herris, one of the VIPs. She is smoking next to a window near Margolis' office, next to the terrace.

The problem with Herris is that there are four CICADA bodyguards who have her on their field of vision, hence a silent kill would be impossible. She needs to be lured somewhere or those people have to be subdued, or a mixture of both. However, after her conversation with Dalia Margolis, she will go downstairs to the ground floor to watch the fashion show, providing multiple opportunities to kill her even though patience is required for the conversation to be triggered.

Level 5

Objective Break and Enter: Break into the safe on the second floor and steal the contents.
Target Sophus Fatale Martha Herris
Disguise Auction Staff Auction Staff
Weapon Any Any
Complications
  • Enhanced Enforcers: Auction staff see through the auction staff disguises.
  • Body Remover: Hide all dead bodies within 90 seconds or you will fail the mission.

This last complication is a whole different challenge. Even though Fatale's corpse is easy to hide if killed in Margolis' room, Herris' one is not very close to any hiding spot or container.

There are generally two ways to approach this objective. The first is subduing people between Herris (or her body) and Margolis' room (which is the closest hiding spot) or throwing Herris' body over the balaustrade and hiding the body on the ground floor. The second is waiting for her go to the ground floor after her conversation with Dalia Margolis which she can be isolated alone.

General tips

  • No conditions forbid knocking down the targets or even extra NPCs. In fact, the 90-second countdown to hide a dead body will only start when anybody is killed, not pacified.
  • Accidents still count as deaths and bodies will need to be hidden within 90 seconds.
  • Hailey Brennan (Margolis' secretary) and the bodyguard close by will leave if 47 sabotages the auction, reducing the number of people who need to be subdued.
