Hitman 3: Cheats, Shortcuts and Codes for all Doors and Safes

Hitman 3 puts an end to the World of Assassination stealth trilogy. In this action-adventure video game, Agent 47 will have to complete all the missions without mercy, in locations like a skyscraper in Dubai or at the Dartmoor Castle. In addition, the creators promise a rich and fully immersive world. In this article, we present a compilation of all the tips and tricks known to date. So read on, if you want to make achieving your goals and leveling up easy.


Here’s a list of all our tips:

  • Every item can be useful: collect everything you can, at some point even a screwdriver can be useful. Also, there are no limits on inventory.
  • Coins as a way of distraction: you can always throw one of them to distract the enemy that blocks the passage to one of the areas. You can also use anything that makes noise, such as a vacuum cleaner.
  • Use the Instinct mode: it will allow you to scan the area and detect which elements you can interact with.
  • Turn on the subtitles: this can help you remember names of places and goals.
  • Use the minimap: the icons will reveal some key information.
  • Don’t lose sight of your status: It will tell you if you should change your costume, if someone is looking for you, if you have witnessed a crime, etc.
  • Save your session regularly: It is possible to make a mistake in one of your actions - this will allow you to return to the starting point of the mission.
  • Repeat missions: every time you finish a mission, you will get more XP and your level will increase.
  • Know the disadvantages of your costume: some enemies will know that you are in disguise.

  • Eliminate only your targets: eliminating someone who is not a part of the plan can put you in jeopardy.
  • Hide the bodies: eliminating someone is not enough, you also have to know where to hide them.
  • Use the Fiber wire as a weapon: it will allow you to throttle all your targets.
  • Pay attention to all the surroundings: every conversation may be key to obtaining the information you need.
  • Zoom to hear better: zoom in with the weapon to hear other people's conversations louder.
  • Unlock shortcuts: all exits are marked in yellow. You can look for stairs, vents, doors, etc.
  • Be very careful with security cameras: sometimes, it can be convenient to destroy them.
  • Rat poison: rat poison can be a very quiet weapon. You will find it in basements, maintenance areas, warehouses, etc.
