Been a while since i last wrote one of these. In case you have been lurking on RT community servers discord server, you might have noticed i spent bit of time counting NPC-s in all hitman levels (yeah, we all know how it functions). I did leave out training ones (not many npc-s, even on ship level).
So why i did that? Quite frankly idea came after seeing Ryan, Jeremy and Gavin do escalation on colorado level. Combining that with puddle pile idea, i started wondering- how many people are there in Hitman levels? Also, i was really bored (due to my health being not so great most of 2018 so far... So what better way to vent frustration than on NPC-s in hitman- on PC)
First off Paris:
Notes: used puddle pile as much as possible, tried to do stealth as much as possible. Got bodyguard outfit as early as possible to allow maximum access. Here is a hint: dont change outfit, especially when you go loud. That way you know when you have finished.
I dont know if NPC-s without AI count, but some of them vanished as well. Missed one normal NPC (just could not find it, ran trough level few times)
Notes: Not very challenging in its own right, but due to its size, it took forever to find people, especially since i had to go loud half way trough. Often had to wait until non-guard NPC-s calmed down and returned to their usual tracks.
Notes: so. many. NPC-s. Again hit disappear glitch with some non-AI npc-s (not sure if they even count), but this time most returned. Actually had to go loud really early because mistake i made, but it proved to work out better due to sheer number of NPC-s.
Notes: Turned out to be more challenging than i expected and actually died more here than in other levels combined. used bug spray to knock lobby down, to point out major things, but other than that, it was pretty routine as far as this type goes- first stealth, then go loud.
Notes: this was just insane. Used same car as AH did to "count" few people (including one target, to my suprise), but after that bit, well, it became craziest thing i have seen in video game. Went in barn next door (where militia practised taking car down) to retrieve smuggled weapon, that did not like to NPC-s. And since pretty much everyone in this level carries a gun, they ran toward me.
Few screens to point out insanity:
(enemies advancing on me)
(there were so many i literally couldnt see trough door in end- and yes, that is a door not a window)
(find me in picture- this is after the battle)
By my estimates, at least 85 percent of people ended up in that battle. After that it was just mopping up
Notes: As expected, this turned out to be easiest by far. Although i did forget about one of targets possibly escaping, so i failed once... Not much else to say about that level
I hope you enjoyed this read, will try to think something equally as interesting to read for my next gaming adventure.
