This is the first part of the Skurky’s Law Mission in Hitman: Absolution which is called Courthouse. In it you are in a courthouse and get to its holding cells. 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.
Get to the Holding Cells
At the start turn around and walk out of the court room. Turn right and go through the door at the end of the hall. Once outside turn right and go into the door ahead. Once inside start crouch walking. Go down the stairs and take cover on the desk at the bottom of the stairs. Wait for the police officer to have walked to the right a bit:
Then walk up behind the police officer and subdue him. Take his uniform and hide his body in the crate that is in the room. Take cover beneath the window to the right of the crate. Wait for both police officers outside to have turned their back on you, then climb through the window and go down the street on the right hand side. Once you get to the second car that is parked around the corner take cover on it and go all the way to the right to the front of the car. Wait for the police officers on the other side to have stopped their conversation and move away:
Then turn around and crouch walk up to the wall. Jump up to the ledge and pull yourself up. Go right until you can climb through the window. Ahead is a desk with a monitor on it. Go up to it and turn off the TV. Then turn around and go up the stairs leading to the adjacent room. Wait for the judge to enter the room and change position once (until he is standing near the open window). Subdue him, take the key card and his outfit and hide the judge’s body in the cabinet that is in the room. Then go out of the door to that room and stand behind the desk. Wait there until you can pass sentence. Then go down into the court room and turn left and go through the door with the key card scanner next to it. Turn around and wait for the police officer and employee to be out of sight:
