The Wetzel Determination is an escalation contract in The Showstopper mission.

Completing all the levels will award the player with "The Wetzel Determination" feat.

Level 1

Target Max Decker
Disguise Any
Weapon Accident
Complications None
The target is Max Decker, the member of the FSB who is going to meet with Viktor Novikov. He is standing next to his bodyguard at the terrace bar. It is required to be eliminated in a way that looks like an accident. Fortunately, there are many possible accidents waiting for Decker. One possible accident is right next of where he is, as gas lamps can be fixed with a wrench in order to leak gas, which can be ignited by any fire or spark. However, a tech guy disguise is required in order to tamper with the lamps without being noticed by nearby witnesses.

Approaching Decker will trigger a script where he will call Novikov, and be told that a CICADA bodyguard will come get him for his meeting with Novikov. If 47 is dressed as a CICADA bodyguard, after the call he can talk to Decker and make him follow 47, thinking he's the one sent by Novikov to escort him to the meeting point.

Not far from where he stands, there is a pool of water with a power strip on it. Using a screwdriver, the wires can be exposed in a way that everybody who goes over the poodle will die by an electric shock.

However, the gun can be used to shoot the lamp to make it explode (need to shoot it twice to leak the lamp first) and to shoot the wire to make it explode. However since the gun is the illegal item to every disguise except the guard, hiding and caution is required.

Also, any window, balaustrade or railing over the river can be used to push him.

Level 2

Target Max Decker Gwen Dawson
Disguise Any Any
Weapon Accident Any
Complications None
The new target is Gwen Dawson, one of the guests at the IAGO auction. She is located near the park close to the terrace bar, and when she is approached, she will begin her route of going up to the third floor, to the auction. Once she reaches the auction, she will not move.

Level 3

Target Max Decker Gwen Dawson
Disguise Any Any
Weapon Accident Any
Complications Body Remover: Hide all dead bodies within 90 seconds or you will fail the mission.
The complication really makes everything more difficult. Killing Decker with a gas explosion or an exposed wire will attract so much attention that it won't be possible to drag the body to a hiding spot. Therefore, it is much more efficient to push him to the river. However, when following 47 to the meeting spot, he will face 47 47 at all times, so pushing him will require some kind of distraction.

The same applies to Dawson. Once she goes up the stairs to the auction, there are few hiding spots and a lot of witnesses. If possible, she will need to be murdered at the bottom floor, where there are more hiding spots, although some potential witnesses will have to be pacified first.

Level 4

Target Max Decker Gwen Dawson
Disguise Any Any
Weapon Accident Any
Complications
  • Body Remover: Hide all dead bodies within 90 seconds or you will fail the mission.
  • Big brother: Additional security cameras are present. If recorded by a security camera, delete the evidence within two minutes

Depending on the path taken and where does the player plan to ambush Decker and Dawson, some security cameras could record the action. One that inevitably will do if not taken care of, is the one that oversees Decker. In order to talk to him, the player must disable that camera or the whole surveillance system. The latter is located in the basement, close to the cafeteria, in a room with three security guards, plus another one coming and going. The guard inside the security room will not be looking at the equipment all the time, and the remaining two are sitting facing the other way. There is plenty of time to sneak in, destroy the evidence, and leave.

Level 5

Target Max Decker Gwen Dawson
Disguise Any Any
Weapon Accident Any
Complications
  • Body Remover: Hide all dead bodies within 90 seconds or you will fail the mission.
  • Big brother: Additional security cameras are present. If recorded by a security camera, delete the evidence within two minutes
  • Super Enforcers: All VIPs can see through all of Paris disguises and 47's suits.

The main problem the last complication poses is the fact that Decker will see through any disguise or suit, effectively voiding the aforementioned CICADA disguise tactic. Without 47 talking to Decker, the target will not move from his spot at the terrace bar. Fortunately, after talking to Novikov on his phone, Decker will be able to be lured away from his bodyguard and the main crowd, an opportunity that 47 can use to subdue him, throw him over a balaustrade and then hide the body.

Other perceptive VIPs include Sebastian Sato, Viktor Novikov, Helmut Kruger and some others. Fortunately, Dawson, despite carrying an IAGO invitation, is not considered perceptive.

General tips

  • Remember that cameras can be shot to avoid detection. Beware of witnesses, though.
  • In the same manner, the surveillance system can also be shot.
  • Remember which disguise allows access to which floor without arousing suspicion.
  • 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.
