This is a guide for completing all the challenges in the Terminus mission in Hitman: Absolution. After you have done the challenges and have done the mission on purist you can expect 53,550 score which is after having collected all the pieces of evidence.
Until you do a last run of this mission to get a high score I suggest you play on the normal difficulty, which is the lowest difficulty you can play on and complete the challenges.
Completing the Chameleon Challenge
The Chameleon challenge requires you to find and put on all the disguises in the mission (janitor, guard and electrician).
The janitor disguise is on a table after you have gone through the ventilation shaft out of the flooded cellar:
Took the guard as a hostage and knocked him out and took his outfit. You can take the electrician’s disguise from the electrician working in the flooded basement. Simply subdue him and take his outfit.
Completing the Suit Only Challenge
The Suit Only challenge requires you to complete all parts of this mission whilst wearing the suit.
To complete the suit only challenge I found it best to shoot my way through the Terminus Hotel part. Just go through the front door and shoot everyone in sight. Then call the elevator and fend off any guards that appear. For the Upper Floors area I suggest you follow the guide I wrote for that, only on the normal difficulty and you don’t need to bother getting the evidence. After you have pulled the last guard through the window just go up to the door, pick it and finish the mission. You can find the guide here: http://wp.me/p1SfP0-1bY
Completing the A Night In Paradise Mission
The A Night In Paradise mission requires you to find a movie reel and play it on the projector in the upper floors.
Go into the room the projector points into. It is the room that you are facing when you stand as though you have just left the elevator on the eighth floor. The movie reel is on a table near the projector screen:
Then go into the room the projector is in (which is the room to the left of the room you fond the movie reel in). If the guards are still in the room wait for their conversation to finish and one of them to leave. Then go into the room and play the movie:
Completing the Housekeeping Challenge
The Housekeeping challenge requires you to take out 10 guards without being detected.
Make your way to the eight floor by following the following guide (once again, play on the normal difficulty): http://wp.me/p1SfP0-1bY
When you are on the eight floor the first guard you can take out is the guard that is leaning out of the window near the entrance to the eight floor:
Then throw a wrench near the window and a guard will show up. If he is close enough to the window simply throw him out, otherwise sneak up on him, garrote him and dump him out of the window. This will work a second time. Next go into the room with the projector in it. Wait for the two guards to have stopped their conversation and one of them to have left. Sneak up on the remaining guard and garrote him:
Then go out through the door to other guard went though and take the guard out as well. Hide both the bodies in the cabinet that is in the room with the projector in it. Next go into the room with the movie reel in it. On one of the tables near a cabinet is a bottle. Take it and throw it on the left side of the cabinet at the wall:
A guard will come and investigate. Garrote him and hide his body in the cabinet. This trick will work once more, there is another bottle in the room with the elevator in it. Then go into the room the guards came out of. There is a guard standing near a window, push him out:
In the same room is a piano. Knock the pin out. A guard will come out of the room ahead, so be sure to stay in such cover that he can’t detect you. Once he is near the piano sneak up on him and take him out. Dump the body out of a window. The last victim is in the room the previous guard just came out of. Sneak up on him, garrote him and dump his body out of a window.
Completing the Don’t Disturb Challenge
The Don’t Disturb challenge requires you to complete the mission without subduing or killing anyone.
Follow the guide I wrote about both the parts of this mission previously.
Completing the Electrician – Part 1 and 2 Challenge
The Electrician – Part 1 requires you to kill an enemy with a screwdriver whilst wearing the electrician disguise. The Electrician – Part 2 requires you to throw a screwdriver at 5 different enemies whilst remaining undetected.
For The Electrician – Part 1 just take the electrician outfit, take a screwdriver (there is one in the flooded cellar in the door near the electrician) and attack somebody, whoever is closest.
For The Electrician – Part 2 again get the electrician outfit and pick up a screwdriver. Be sure not to kill or subdue the guard that is in the cellar as he will be your first target (you can just use a wrench to distract him and sneak past him). Be sure to walk up behind your victims so that they don’t spot you just before they die. After you have done the deed you can recover the screwdriver from the body.
Go back up to the front of the hotel and activate the alarm of the car standing near the entrance on the side facing the entrance:
A guard will come out to investigate and you can sneak behind him and throw the screwdriver at him. Next go up to where the guards are talking to an electrician. Throw a bottle past the entrance to the side area:
A guard will come out to investigate. Throw the screwdriver at him. There is another guard in the side area, so be sure to throw a screwdriver at him too. Now just find the closest guard and stand somewhere where no guard can see you and throw the screwdriver at him.
Completing the Inside Job, The Man From South Dakota, Infiltrator, Evidence Collector and Hall Pass Challenge
The Inside Job challenge requires you to complete the mission without being detected whilst wearing the janitor (cleaner) outfit. The The Man From South Dakota challenge requires you to complete the mission. The Infiltrator challenge requires you to complete the mission without being detected (in both areas). The Evidence Collector challenge requires you to pick up the evidence in both the parts of this mission. The Hall Pass challenge requires you to use one specific path to both get to the eight floor and reach room 889.
By doing the purist run you have to do to get a high score in the way the following two guides suggest:
You will complete the Inside Job, The Man From South Dakota, Infiltrator, Evidence Collector and Hall Pass Challenge.
