Completing the Chameleon Challenge
The chameleon challenge requires you to pick up the police officer uniform in Birdie’s Gift.
Go into the room in which the police officer is doing target practice on the ducks. Shoot him and take his outfit.
Completing the Depends on the Girl Challenge
The depends on the girl challenge requires you to fail the target shooting contest.
Leave this challenge last before you do the high score run since a few challenges require you to do the target shooting contest and should you fail one of them you automatically complete the depends on the girl challenge. Otherwise just enter the contest but don’t shoot any of the targets.
Completing the Assassin’s Signature Challenge
The assassin’s signature challenge requires you to win the target shooting contest with the silverballers.
Retrieve the silverballers and then enter the target shooting contest. When you are in it it is worth taking a little extra time to make sure that your aim is on target rather than going for speed as if you miss the head you get very few points.
Completing the Shiver me Timbers Challenge
The shiver me timbers challenge requires you to set off the canon in the shooting range by shooting the fuse.
Step up to the front of the shooting range as close as possible to the wall. If you stand too far back the people around you will get suspicious. Alternatively you can enter the contest. Rapidly shoot the base of the canon until you can see a lit fuse:
Completing the Duck Hunting Challenge
The duck hunting challenge requires you to shoot ten ducks.
Go into the room you took out the police officer in the chameleon challenge. You can use any weapon you like, just shoot ten of the ducks. They will keep respawning so don’t worry about missing too much.
Completing the Up Your Arsenal – Part 1, 2 and 3 Challenge
The up your arsenal – part 1 challenge requires you to win the target shooting contest with a pistol. The up your arsenal – part 2 challenge requires you to win the target shooting contest whilst using the Ultramax. The up your arsenal – part 3 requires you to win the target shooting contest whilst either using a shotgun or sniper rifle.
For the first part of up your arsenal just win the target shooting contest with the standard pistol you are given. To get the Ultramax for the second part of the up your arsenal challenge sabotage the fuse box in the Gun Shop. Then go behind the counter and pick up the key card there. Go out into the target shooting range through the back part of the shop and enter the bunker. The Ultramax is in a corner of the bunker:
For the third part of the up your arsenal challenge I found it easiest to use the sniper rifle. Get it in the same way as the Ultramax except instead of entering the bunker keep following the trench until you find the sniper rifle:
When you are in the target shooting contest be sure to take frequent advantage of slowing down the time whilst aiming with the sniper rifles. Avoid going into point shoot mode since Agent 47 pulls out pistols for that. I did it once and was still able to complete the challenge, but I’m unsure if using the pistols more frequently would cause you to fail the challenge.
Completing the Bullseye and Ultramax Challenge
The bullseye challenge requires you to win the target shooting contest. The ultramax challenge requires you to win the target shooting contest whilst using the Ultramax.
You automatically complete the bullseye and ultramax challenge by completing the up your arsenal – part 1 and 2 challenge.
Completing the Evidence Collector, Infiltrator, Suit Only, It Wouldn’t Be Stealing, Choosing Weapons and Mastery Challenge
The evidence collector challenge requires you to pick up the evidence in Gun Shop. The infiltrator challenge requires you to complete the mission without being spotted. The suit only challenge requires you to complete the mission without using disguises. The it wouldn’t be stealing challenge requires you to recover the silverballers without participating in the target shooting contest. The choosing weapons challenge requires you to complete the mission. The mastery challenge requires you to complete all the challenges for the Birdie’s Gift mission.
All of these challenges are unlocked when you do the purist high score run in the way the following guide suggests:
