This guide is for the A Personal Contract Mission in Hitman Absolution. It describes the score maximizing way to complete this mission, which includes how to recover the evidence in this area and how to stay undetected.
At the end of this guide is a YouTube video with a visual version of this guide.
Get the Keycard from the Head of Security
At the start crouch walk into the kitchen and wait there for a few seconds. Then get back into the hallway and go up the stairs to the left ahead. Go into the bathroom which is opposite the top of the stairs. Pick up the sleeping pills from underneath the mirror and go back down into the kitchen. Take cover on the counter and wait for the guard and the cook to finish their conversation. Once the guard has turned his back on you get out of cover and walk normally towards the stove and drug the food:
Then walk out of the kitchen through the doorway to the left, not through the door the guard walked through earlier. Once you are out of the kitchen start crouch walking and go towards the coffee cup on the counter ahead. Don’t take cover on the counter, instead put the pills in the coffee, then take cover on the counter:
Wait for the chief of security to have drunk the coffee, then get out of cover and go back into the kitchen. The cook will be sitting passed out on a chair in the left corner of the kitchen. Take his outfit and hide his body in the freezer in the kitchen. Then go through the door that the guard went through earlier. Wait close to the door for the chief of security to have sat down and passed out. Take the key card off the floor and hide the body in the cabinet that is in the same room.
Locate Second Floor Entrance
Go out into the living room and pick up the evidence near the stairs to the second floor you didn’t use before:
Then go up the stairs and follow the balcony around to the door with the key card scanner next to it. Use the key card on the machine and go through the door. Once you have done that it is the end of the part of this mission in which the score system is enabled.
