Hitman 3: How to Unlock Secret Ending

In the recently released stealth game Hitman 3 you can unlock a secret ending. We’ll tell you what you have to do here, but be careful, there are SPOILERS ahead!

In Hitman 3, we fought our way through Dubai, Dartmoor, Berlin, Chongqing and Mendoza together. The last assignment finally took us in the role of Agent 47 to the Carpathian Mountains, where we had to face the last target. If you make the right decision at this point, you can unlock the secret ending of the stealth game.

Below, we will tell you what exactly you have to do about this. However, it should go without saying that we will not be able to avoid massive SPOILERS for the finale of the World of Assassination trilogy in this regard. Accordingly, you should really only read the next lines if you have already completed the latest work from IO Interactive.

Hitman 3: Unlock Secret Ending

In the final mission of the game, you are here on board a train in the Carpathian Mountains. Unlike the previous levels, however, this section is very straightforward and, in terms of level design, much less complex than, for example, the China order Chongqing. You now have to work your way through several wagons and compartments of the train to get to your final target. When you’re done, it’s time to sort things out for good.

In the last compartment, you finally meet your final destination: Arthur Edwards. Edwards does not have any weapons in the traditional sense and there are no other safety precautions to guarantee his protection. However, he still has an ace up his sleeve: a serum with which a person’s memories can be completely erased.

At this point, you have several options on how you can proceed. For example, you can put a bullet in Edwards’ head quickly and painlessly or kill him with another weapon you have equipped. Alternatively, you can inject him with the serum yourself to erase his memories. After that, he no longer knows who Agent 47 is, so he is no longer a threat. To unlock the secret ending of Hitman 3, you are not allowed to do anything.

Instead, take the syringe – and do nothing. So really nothing at all! After about a minute, a dialogue between Edwards and Agent 47 starts, in which your target person persuades the killer to administer the serum himself. Your character is ultimately about freedom and Edwards explains that a “freedom of choice” is freedom too. After you have injected yourself with the serum, the secret end of the game starts. By the way, you also successfully complete the “A New Father” challenge.

Agent 47 then wakes up in a padded cell that is particularly familiar to Hitman fans from the very beginning: It is a replica of the opening of the very first Hitman game, in which Agent 47 is woken up by a strange voice, and with it, he goes about his murderous craft. In the secret end of the game, our character becomes the personal assassin of the organization, which closes the circle at the beginning of the series. It’s an interesting ending, even if Agent 47 is now kind of caught in an endless loop.
