Hitman: Codename 47 Edit

Description Edit

After Agent 47's entanglement within the Colombia's jungle, he is sent another mission by The Agency.

Agent 47 is to kill an Austrian terrorist known as Frantz Fuchs at the Hotel Gallard. Afterwards, he must collect the chemical bomb that was to be detonated at the United Nations conference taking place at the same location.

Mission Briefing Edit

The following contain spoilers. Click "show" to continue.

Welcome to Budapest.

At the Thermal Bath Hotel in Budapest, a peace summit is being held. Attending are all the leaders of the world's great nations, and naturally, the renowned hotel is swarming with security.

None of these notabilities are your target. The Austrian terrorist, Frantz Fuchs, is planning to blow up the hotel. If successful, it will change the world forever.

Frantz Fuchs is your target. Normally we would not care about the leaders, but preventing the attack will make us popular with many governments and could mean a new clientele for our business.

Our customer has requested the bomb, so you have to take it out of the hotel.

Diana Burnwood, Controller, The Agency

Objectives Edit

  • Eliminate Frantz Fuchs.
  • Secure terrorist bomb.
  • Escape to rendezvous point.

Reward: $55,000

Intelligence Edit


Traditions of the Trade Map

Our customer wants terrorist Frantz Fuchs dead and the special chemical bomb that he is planning to use at the hotel.
Frantz Fuchs has arrived to the hotel several days before the convention. He will probably check in under the assumed name Heinrich Wulff. It is very unlikely that Fuchs is hiding the bomb in his hotel room. So you must do some investigation to find some clues.
Metal detectors have been placed at all checkpoints in the hotel. But it is a big hotel and our intelligence has found out that not all routes are blocked.
Investigate the hotel to find a safe escape route. The usual pickup will be waiting for you at the rendezvous point.

Intelligence Edit

Fritz Fuchs, a practicing dentist and member of the Fuchs terrorist family, has the only known key to the X-Ray room in his suite. The bomb has been concealed in the X-Ray room of Fritz Fuchs' dental office suite. Frantz Fuchs, of the international terrorist family, has developed a powerful chemical bomb and smuggled it into the renowned Thermal Bath Hotel in Budapest, which is hosting a U.N. peace conference.

Our client is a high-profile figure who prefers not to involve local authorities. We rely on you to handle this discreetly. Our client would like the bomb retrieved for analysis. Most of the conference delegates and their staffs are staying at the hotel. Security is obviously very tight, and Mr. Fuchs himself never travels without an entourage of guards. Fuchs is traveling under the alias of Bjorn Wulff. Once you assassinated the targets and retrieved the bomb, we'll send a car to get you out of there.
