The achievement name is an AC reference! Can't wait for both games on the 15th.

Glad you had that up. I knew I should know what that line was from, but I was drawing a really annoying blank.

love the hitman assignments! having to get wasted or get the fbi on you, way better than just locating a guy on the street. hope they have some truly unique missions for it

So glad to see that the Hitman diversion is coming back. It was good fun in the first game having to track down the people in specific locations or methods. This game can't possibly come out fast enough.

This achievement can't be completed once you take 100% control of Steelport. All the gangmembers will be gone and some assassinations require you to lure out various gangleaders by taunting their minions, alas, they're gone once you complete the game. So be warned if you wanna go for 100% completion.

Comment #8 by Rob1610
Tuesday, November 15, 2011 @ 06:43:13 AM

@7 not true. If a gang member is required and the gang's gone, anyone from that hood will do. And don't say I'm wrong, I read that straight from the guide.

how many hitmen are there I've done 34/34 and the achievement didn't pop for me

Comment #10 by Goldyman77
Thursday, November 17, 2011 @ 12:02:17 AM

@9, if you read the statistics in the extras menu by pressing back on your remote, on one of the pages it says your number out of 36. Thus, the total is 36 targets. Also for everyone that wants to know, once you hit 21 I believe, you must beat act 1 to unlock the next 11 and then further progress after that to unlock the last 4. For the last 2, all others must be completed. Hope it helps!

Sunday, November 20, 2011 @ 05:22:46 PM

Theres 36 targets and it says that ive killed 34/34, bareing in mind i havent completed the game yet, just finished Act 2, could that mean i need to progress more in the game to unlock the last two?

Comment #17 by uppyb0t

@16 - Yes, check #10

Comment #18 by BleedOutTheEyes
Tuesday, November 22, 2011 @ 06:25:01 PM

I got the last 2 after the Zombie Mission and had all 34 before that, so I think
that mission triggers the other 2
Don't know if the choosing effects the hitman missions but I choose the blue one

You have to complete a fair bit selection of missions to activate all 36 targets as some are linked. Quite easy to kill them all, only one I had some problems with is the Hoe grabbing one.

Just ended up grabbing anyone in sight and he showed up when I grabbed an old women.

anyone know where to find a phoenix for the gerrard mission?
All I can find are torches

Comment #21 by smashingrascal
Friday, November 25, 2011 @ 09:29:34 AM

the list is somewhat weird.
2 targets appeared after I already killed 30, and that was after completing the story.
and you need 36 confirmed kills out of 37 for the achievement.

ive done 36/36 and still no achievement help..!! am i supposed to to do something
else or what.??!!!

Comment #23 by Pabo Byungshin
Friday, November 25, 2011 @ 05:40:30 PM

I found Andre the hardest, since I controlled the area he spawns in which meant there were no Morningstar dudes walking around... and I unlocked the bonus that makes my notoriety drop faster, so I'd kill a few of them when they finally showed up and then my notoriety would drop back to zero before any more came.

In the end, I gave up and went to do a Trafficking mission without turning off the assassination contract... and Zimos drove me into the right area which made Andre spawn. Luckily, he was still there walking around when I finished the Trafficking incident.

By the way... the achievement thing isn't necessarily a direct Assassin's Creed reference, so much as a reference to a famous quote attributed to the head of the order of Assassins upon which the first AC game is based.

For the people having trouble with Smoov, you must go to the area at night when the prostitutes are out. It says you must grab a fat ho using the Y button, but it worked when I grabbed a skinny ho too.

Forgot to add in my first comment: If it is day time in your game, just save the game and load it and it will change to day.

Ok, i've all skills of the game, then i don't receive any damage from cars. If i don't receive damage from cars, i can't be hit by a car, and then i can't kill Chandler. Any suggestions for it?

Comment #36 by venomous420
Sunday, January 01, 2012 @ 08:09:59 PM

@35 That doesnt mean you cant get hit; I have done this so I know.

Comment #37 by Master Teixi
Sunday, January 01, 2012 @ 10:03:30 PM

@36 Well, if i get in front of a car while the car is moving, the car only push me, but don't hit me. You just stayed in front of a car and the car hit you?

Comment #38 by Master Teixi
Sunday, January 01, 2012 @ 10:09:08 PM

@36 Forget it, i just shotted my car till it burned and then i went inside. When my car exploded i fell off and then the enemy popped up, i killed him and the achievement was unlocked. Anyway, thanks.

Comment #46 by ItsLowKey
Monday, January 30, 2012 @ 10:09:02 PM

Ok, nvm. Some of the targets come after you earn respect of certain informants apparently.

Saturday, March 31, 2012 @ 05:16:21 PM

I killed 35 targets and im on the last one where you have to wear the alter boy suit and attack deckers, the problem is ive completed all city take over missions 100% and the are no other gang members roaming the streets, so im pretty frustrated that I cant get this last one. Major flaw in the game in my opinion

Comment #53 by Whiteboy6155
Tuesday, October 02, 2012 @ 12:49:44 AM

Is it possible to get the hitman targets if you have 100% that island O_o because I couldnt get any gang members to appear in the area when I needed for one of the targets
