Hitman Absolution Purist Difficulty Mission Guide: Mission 05: Hunter and Hunted, Convenience Store
This is the fifth part of the Hunter and Hunted Mission in Hitman Absolution which is called the Convenience Store. In it you make your way through a store filled with police and fireworks to get to Chinatown. This guide explains how to complete this mission on the hardest, purist, difficulty. It does not explain how to complete the different challenges in this area.
At the end of this guide is a YouTube video with a visual version of this guide.
When you start the mission go up the the first rooftop and wait near the air conditioning units:
In the image above you can just make out the flash light of a police officer over on the other roof. Wait until he has turned away from the edge and then approach the edge to the left and climb down. When you are on the ledge wait until the police officer inside the building has turned around. Then make your way all the way to the right to a platform. Go across the plank to the next rooftop. Take cover behind the air conditioning units until the police officer has entered the building to the left:
Then make your way onto the ledge in front of that same building. Before you get near the first window wait for the police officer to have gone past, he can detect you if you are too close to the window. Go through that window and make your way down the corridor and onto the next rooftop. There is a hatch ahead with a ladder sticking out. Go down the ladder. In the kitchen you get into is a cook disguise. Don’t put it on, it makes a later part much harder. Instead, walk into the storage area and past the fireworks through a doorway and into the next room:
Turn the wheel inside that room and go back to the door of that room. Wait for the police officer to leave and go back into the storage area. Set off the fireworks and take cover on the left side of the door you just used to enter the storage area. Let the police officer walk away again, then make your way into the room which had the wheel in it. That room has another door. Crouch and crouch walk through that door and follow the counter all the way to the right. Then go forward to the stack of boxes and also follow that all the way to the right. Take cover here and wait for the police officer to come and walk away:
Then go back to the same cover you just were in. Follow that cover leftwards back towards the counter, but instead of going to the counter go nearer the the entrance of the store and walk down the alley. At the end turn right and follow that alley until you get to a pillar. Then walk towards the store exit, but wait for the police officer to walk to the right before you get too close to him:
