If you have played either Hitman 2016 or Hitman 2, you will know that you can choose 2 items along with your Silenced pistol each mission you go into. Knowing this, you might think to yourself, what should I bring with me? The answer is not always the same because you might bring pills, but it might not be the way to take out the target. The best thing I can do is tell you what the best gear in the game is and how to unlock them. Here are my top 7 most useful gear that you can get.
Lockpick Mk II
The first piece of gear that is totally necessary for you to get is the Lockpick Mk II. With this tool, you can open up any locked door you please, as long as it does not require a key card. The best thing about this tool is the fact that it never breaks. It is one of the easiest tools to get early on because all you have to do is reach Mastery 2 in Miami. All you have to do is beat the mission once and you will get this amazing tool.
Electronic Key Hacker
The second piece of gear is the Electronic Key Hacker. This is pretty much the Lockpick for Keycard doors, but you only get 3 uses per mission, so use it wisely. This one is a little more difficult to get, but you will not be let down by it. You need to get to Mastery 7 in Isle of Sgail, which is equivalent to beating the mission about 5 times. Keep in mind that eliminating innocent people will drop your score and will take longer to get to the Mastery level.
The third piece of gear you should get and equip are Emetic Pills. These are special pills that you can slip into someone’s food to make them sick. If you can successfully make one of your targets sick, you can follow them to wherever they are gonna puke and silently take them out. You can get this tool by getting to Mastery 7 in Santa Fortuna. Just play the mission until you get the item.
The fourth piece of gear you should get and equip are Lethal Pills. These are essentially the same as the Emetic Pills, but as soon as the target eats or drinks where you put the pills, they will die within seconds. There is not much else to say about this, but it is really important to have if you can’t find a lethal item in the mission. You need to get to Mastery 7 in Whittleton Creek, which will take some time, but all these missions are fun and worth playing over.
The fifth piece of gear that you should get and equip is the Sieker 1. This is an Emetic dart gun that when you shoot it at someone, it makes them sick. You can then run to wherever they relieve themselves and you can take them out as they are doing so. This one is the hardest one to get out of all the gear because you must reach Mastery 10 in Haven Island. Keep in mind that this requires the Season Pass to get.
The sixth piece of gear is one that you get right at the beginning of the game, and it is a coin. If you have a coin equipped, there are 3 total that you get so don’t worry about losing one or two. You can use these to distract people or guards while you are on the mission. If you don’t have anything else, make sure to equip this.
The last piece of equipment that you want to use is the Fiber Wire. Not only is this one of the most fun ways to take out targets, you automatically get this item at the start of the game. You can also get bonus points for using it in a mission that you have not completed the challenge. I would use the coins and Fiber Wire in the beginning so you can understand how to play.
