@crimsontadpoles Yeah, it was a 50/50 between scouting as the Point Man and going straight for the house as an Elite Guard. Sometimes these Elusive Targets can be won or lost on the smallest of decisions about where and how to start.

Although it's good that you can restart as many times as you like, providing that you don't actually start achieving objectives; without that, I wouldn't have gotten half of them since launch!

@RogerRoger I once again did the Drop the bass achievement/ trophy. I noticed that I had to use a different tree location to make them coconuts land on their head. Lol.
I have noticed subtle changes with the levels that were in hitman 1goty, and how some things are different in 2.

Favorite so far is suit only, master difficulty no spottes, no bodies found Miami. 3 mins 18 secs. Working on getting under 3 mins but have to wait for targets.

Did you do Pink Army trophy/achievement yet?
Muffin man or butler did it challenges?

As your master leveling increases the unlocks help speed up the game significantly and provide new kill methods, which adds replayability

@LaJettatura Holy cow, you're an elite assassin! Aside from a few obvious / comedy speedruns (like in New York, where you can totally just stand in that little entrance area with a sniper rifle, shoot Athena Savalas through her office window, slip the rifle into a briefcase and walk nonchalantly down to the vault) I've never attempted anything like Miami in three minutes! Bravo!

I didn't do the Pink Army, no. From what I gather, there's no way of doing it without killing pretty much everybody you encounter and I'm not a big fan of playing as a mass murderer. That and the Isle of Sgàil hidden trophies I've yet to unlock, but I'm not sure I ever will.

But you're right, I do love the Mastery system, especially when going back for Elusive Targets or other challenges and you've got a host of starting locations, disguises and weapons to pick from!

@RogerRoger I did complete the Pink army achievement/trophy last night. I only ended up killing 3 peeps and then I got killed. The mascot costume does obscure your aiming. However it popped and was quite amusing and it is a fun challenge. I would suggest playing it on casual since on professional the guards are still spot on. I will attempt again because after doing Pink Army you kill both targets a secret exit opens up, related directly to that achievement/trophy. Isle of sigail has a similar secret exit but the butler must be escorted to open it for you.

This is another easy 100% achievements it's the grind that makes the hours go by.

@LaJettatura Yeah, I've seen both those secret exits you mention (not in my game, but on YouTube). They're neat little easter eggs but then Hitman has always been a dream franchise for easter egg hunters.

Will take a second look at Pink Army if you can limit casualties. Thanks!

@LaJettatura No, I'm saving the hidden trophies from New York for when I need to get some practice, ahead of returning for the tropical resort DLC later in the autumn. Apparently it takes quite a while to set up, but nothing as complex as the butler in Isle of Sgàil.

Have you done it?

@RogerRoger Yes, I have completed Defenestration. Setup took no time at all if you are New York Mastery Level 15. I would say 15 minutes tops on this particular Trophy/Achievement.
Ill get you rolling on this:
Investment Banker, Lockpick, Silverballer, Sniper Rifle in Briefcase in Executive breakroom.
only 2 Disguise changes, Follow fired banker quest line after you get the Datacore. Target Killed only. Sniper used to shoot bird flying around in bank lobby after you kill target(Window Push)

Have Fun!
Now I just have Leap of Faith to do.

I managed to successfully do the current legacy elusive target, The Gunrunner, even less elegantly than my usual messy style. First time around, I struggled to find the target and got badly compromised, so opted to replan the mission. Then the second time around, my remote explosive attack narrowly missed the target, so I had to quickly run back and shoot him, then flee whilst getting shot at.
