This is the first part of the Blackwater Park Mission in Hitman: Absolution which is also called Blackwater Park. In it you infiltrate Blackwater to gain access to Dexter’s penthouse. 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.
At the start walk towards the black car that is parked closest to you. Walk to the right side of it and crouch once you are about halfway past the car. Then pull out your Silverballers and tighten the aim. Shoot just above the guard’s head near the entrance to the walled off part of the park:
Then immediately put away the Silverballers and get up. Walk up to the same guard and into the walled off area. Once you are in the area sneak up on the guard and subdue him. Take his outfit, but before you go to hide his body look ahead. Wait until the guard further into the area, you can just see his flashlight, has turned his back on you, then go to hide the body in the dumpster ahead. Once you have done that take cover on the small section of wall sticking into the park to the right of the dumpster and wait for a guard to have walked past to the right:
Then get out of cover and follow the path. Go left once the path breaks into two and crouch walk down the stairs. Immediately turn right and go past the rear of the two cars. On the right side of the second car is a generator which has a gasoline can sitting next to it. Take the gasoline can, then go back to the rear of the second car. Wait for the guard you can just see through the gap between the two cars to have gone to the right, then change cover. Wait for the same guard to have turned around and walked back towards the generator, then approach the right end of the barricades and scale them. Take cover on the right side of the car ahead near the bonnet and wait for a guard with a shogun to have walked past the guardhouse:
Then go to the rear of the car. Get out of cover and crouch walk to the right rear of the car on the other side of the street and take cover on the right side of it near the boot. Wait for a guard to have walked a little way past the street light near the front of the car:
As soon as the plumber has gone to investigate sneak up on him and subdue him. Don’t take his outfit yet, instead deposit him in the dumpster near the front of the van. Once he is inside it take his outfit. Then get up, turn right and go through the door ahead. Inside follow the corridor until you can turn left and go up some stairs. Follow the stairs up into the entrance area of Blackwater.
Gain Access to Dexter’s Penthouse
Go to the right side of it and through the leftmost door. Turn right and go towards the security room, but don’t go in yet. Wait until a guard with a shotgun has entered the room and left again:
Then go in through the left door and override the retinal scanner. Get out of the room straight away and go back into the entrance area towards the lift. Call the elevator and go inside it. Once you have pressed the button to go up it is the end of this part of the mission.
