Watch: We found 32 ways to kill a single target in Hitman

Poor Viktor Novikov.

Hitman is a series that lives or dies on just how imaginatively morbid it can be. One of the real joys of these games is finding the most obscure way to murder a target and then patting yourself on the back for the pure deviousness of it all. But just how deep does this dagger-lined rabbit hole go? How many ways can you possibly kill a target in just one mission? Being the most stabby member of the team, we nominated Ian to find out. He lost count (and a tiny portion of his sanity) at around 32; some with the same weapon, but always different styles. Bludgeoned with a fire extinguisher? Check. Knocked out cold with a fire extinguisher and then suffered a snapped neck? Also check. We may have created a monster.
