Utility Box

A Utility Box in Hitman: Blood Money

A Utility Box is a circuit box responsible for holding fuses to ensure that the electric grid doesn't overload and fry. They first appear very briefly Hitman 2: Silent Assassin, then shortly in Hitman: Contracts, and begin appearing with much greater frequency in Hitman: Blood Money. They also appear in Hitman: Absolution, and HITMAN™. Agent 47 can break the fuses, which usually has some distracting effect on a nearby guard. In HITMAN, shooting them has the same effect, but too many bullets will eventually destroy them and render them unusable. Most of the utility boxes are limited to one per mission, with the exception of Rendezvous in Rotterdam.

  • In Blood Money, it takes 47 several seconds to disable utility boxes since he does an animation of opening the box and looking around himself before doing it. In Absolution, it apparently takes less than half that time since he now just opens the box and pulls out wiring without looking around first.
  • In Blood Money NPCSs who try to fix the shortwire caused by 47 breaking the circuit, will open the utility box, observe for a few seconds. After a brief delay they will reach in, get shocked lightly and pull their hand away in pain. Lastly they will fix and resume the electricity flow and then proceed to close the utility box.
