Watch: We take out Hitman's first ever Elusive Target

One chance is all you get.

Remember Hitman's Elusive Target missions? The first of these special one off missions was supposed to launch sometime in March, but for whatever reason it was delayed right up until this weekend just gone.

The Forger - as the target was known - was hidden somewhere in Hitman's Parisian 'Showstopper' mission and players only had a 48 hour window in which to hunt him down and bump him off in any way they saw fit. Trouble was, unlike the main missions in Hitman, there were no real clues as to the whereabouts of this Elusive Target. So, if you failed in your mission (e.g by dying) the target would be gone for good.

Surprisingly, I managed to pull it off - after a good 20 minutes of aimlessly bumbling around the lavish interior of the Palais de Walewska - so if you missed out on your chance to whack The Forger why not see what could have been by checking out the video below.
