    Killed him with a bell drop. It was my last open challenge so I couldn't resist. Don't care about SA.

    Do you guys really hate us that much that getting killed while looking for an exit in Elusive Target # 2 permanently puts only the failed ET (Troutt) on our home screen? Thought succeeding in killing ET 3 would have replaced ET 2 failure with a success icon for The Prince. :/

    Apologies, we know how annoying it can be seeing your failure over and over again but this wasn't intentional, it should say eliminated or failed for the current target and then a "Coming Soon" when there's no target available. We're in the process of fixing this.

    The Sensation will be in Paris for 53 hours – throughout the official opening hours of E3 2016.

    As soon as the E3 doors officially swing open, on Tuesday 14th June at 12pm LA time, the in-game hub will update and you’ll be able to take on Elusive Target #4. As you will see for yourselves, Elusive Targets change the locations, introduce new stories, new gameplay and challenge you to come up with new strategies. As well as ET #4, we’ll have two new Featured Contracts added to the game, one each for Tuesday and Wednesday next week. Plus, we’ll have another new Escalation Contract available on Thursday.

    To be absolutely clear on the start and end times for ET#4, for all locations, use these links:

    ET#4 Start Time and ET#4 End Time

    Just a little Question, had 1-3 server disconnects to the server and little laggings while i just played the elusive target. because it reconnected and worked again i played on. in a fail-attempt to choke a guard from behind it came to the quicktime-fight. i failed the quicktime fight cause of lagging and died. couldnt restart the mission quick enought to avoid dead.

    so my question can i play future elusive targets on the offline mode? sure may its not the best time (eu-cup starting match, friday evening) but i hadnt time to play last days. i was kind of pissed dont get it but i dont want to cry cause of lag or internet problems. it happend so cant do anything. but just for the next time may i play those elusive targets on offline modus ?

    Paris? I hate Paris. It's the worst location and the most unrealistic fashion show I've ever seen

    Why not 53 hours? Nobody stays in the same location for exactly 48 hours or 72 hours. Adds a little more realism for me

    I was wondering why you post the elusive target during the week and not weekends? I hop onto HITMAN to have a bit of fun on the weekend, and the elusive target has already expired? I don't think this is too unreasonable, to have the elusive target go from Friday to Sunday. It seems logical, no?

    a little too easy again for elusive #4. Stash sniper in attic room, Start in attic, get guard outfit, dongle, tamper with laptop to get balcony guard away, then snipe & escape. Did it with both silenced & unsilenced rifles(2 accounts). I also feel the pic & briefing gave too much away. We all were handed his precise location.

    After failing the first three i opted not to try up close and personal. I didnt care for ailent aince that doesnt earn anything. I grabbed the sniper rifle from the shed climbed the tower, and sniped him.

    I managed to succeed on this occasion making it 3/4 having failed the Forger. Managed to eliminate the Sensation within 5 minutes (check the video below to see). Really think this has been such a good enhancement to the Hitman series.

    The problem is, the first two Elusive targets were at the weekends, and a lot of people complained that they work weekends and so didn't have time to play. Making it at different times of the week is fairer, and also more realistic.

    It's because we want them to appear at any given moment, thus the name Elusive Targets. It's closer to the Hitman fantasy this way as opposed to knowing they're gonna be here every Friday.

    Could we all stop complaining and just post our results? If you have a video (even if you failed) please post it because I am interested in seeing how people pulled it off. I went for sniper because it was actually more challenging than poison in this situation.

    I did same way from Dahlia office balcony - Fireworks remote + Bodyguard outfit + Sniper rifle + laptop Dongle
    First attempt I wore waiter outfit and watched for chance to poison his drink and also tried gas lamp, but no opportunity for either that I could see. Target areas seem misleading due to the various interaction spots, which only leads to tedious restarts. Why could the waiter use the laptop to turn off music when he asks but not 47 disguised as one? Of course the music doesn't even turn off either way.
    Not much variety in how to take these 'Elusive' targets down but at least the last two had alterations to the map and NPC dialogue relative to the target and their location, but to be fair I missed the Congressman and don't recall the Forger other than he had a bodyguard escort.
    Still unimpressed with this whole experience, I think the developers believe that since these targets are 'Limited' and pop up on different days of the week that they are immersing us in a real life Hitman role, but if they really wanted to attempt that they would have a new map every target. It feels like a chore to me, I force myself online to the same old map before the time expires to not miss any content and for what, a pair of gloves after a few successes? Pffffffffffttt

    PS - Servers still terrible (I have to start a mission twice using exact loadout and hope for the retry option to appear to maintain a connection) and still no blood, talk about a Hitman immersion breaker.

    How did you know what drink to poison? I watched that guy for 10 min and he never drank once from any glass

    Extremis, I like them because I try to make my own "opportunities." I made the Congressman take a "little swim" and in my video I added a Wilhelm screen to that. The Prince had a hot date with the church chandelier. I saw one guy get an accident kill on The Sensation, but it was a lot of work and took timing.

    Same solution as me, only that I used the poison to make him sick, not kill, and the kill him while he's puking in the bathroom SilentAssassin

    He only drinks at the "beginning" of the party, the moment you enter the "party-area" he will head for the vodkaglass.

    I studied his routes, then restarted and followed my plan. Same as in the video of @Steventon10, only that i used poison to make him sick(killed in bathroom while puking), not dead on scene...
