Hitman Absolution Purist Difficulty Guide: Welcome to Hope, Great Balls of Fire, Get to the Bartender

This is a guide for the only part of the Welcome to Hope Mission in Hitman: Absolution called Great Balls of Fire. In it you go through a bar and get into bar fights to reach the Bartender to question him. 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.

Previous Mission: Rosewood, Central heating, Eliminating Wade with a Signature Kill

At the end of this guide is a YouTube video with a visual version of this guide.

When you start go left and into the bathroom. On the right side of the wall inside the bathroom next to the swinging doors is a lever. Pull that lever to start bar fights in all areas. You won’t be detected now. The alternative is to find a disguise. However, i didn’t see any lying about the place so you would have to take out somebody and then there is nowhere that I found to hide the body. After you have pulled the lever make your way to the right corner of the bathroom and into the air ventilation shaft to avoid a number of bar fights:

When you exit the air ventilation shaft you are in a small room. There is a door to the right leading to the bar area. Outside go for a direct route to the back end of the bar. You will get into 3 bar fights. Each bar fight can go one of 2 ways, and which way it goes seems to be random. When you see that you have to press a button I recommend that you spam that button until the prompt disappears.

At the start of a fight you always have to press Spacebar and then Q (I’m sorry, I don’t know what the buttons are for the consoles. It would be great if you could post a comment if you are playing on either Xbox 360 or Playstation 3 and inform the rest of the people on your system which buttons are the equivalent buttons to the PC). Next the fight can go one of two ways. The first is when the enemy crouches down:

Then you have to press E. The other possibility is that the enemy leans backwards:

Then you have to press W. once you are past the 3 bar fights approach the bartender. Once you start speaking to him it is the end of this mission.

Next Mission: Birdie’s Gift, Gun Shop, Recovering Silverballers without Target Shooting

  1. The way to get a massive score is to hit people in the back of the head with bottles. I got 80,570 this way on purist

  2. Hi, I’ve done this Welcome to Hope level on purist with all challenges done. I get 18,000, shadow. (evidence = 3000, talk to bartender = 15,000) seems good but the highest score on the leaderboard (on xbox) is now 82,000! Do you know what is the highest score possible? Do I have a glitch or did i miss something? Thanks.

  3. I’d like to add that if you are a little careful, you basically need to get only in one fight. You can actually avoid the ‘bullies’, by paying attention to their attitude. Most of them just cheer around the fights. So it’s quite easy that way.
