After proposing you the complete guide to Dubai missions and activities di Hitman 3, we now offer you the opportunity to track down all challenges in the same location, in the title developed by IO Interactive and released last January 20 for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X / S, Xbox One, Windows PC and Google Stadia (here our review).
Before leaving you to guide, we remind you that in the following text you could read some major or minor spoilers related to Hitman 3, regarding various playful sections and different details on the story created by IO Interactive. We therefore advise you to proceed with caution before completing the game's campaign in its entirety.
The following guide shows you how complete all challenges in Hitman 3, in the location of Dubai (United Arab Emirates). The mission is called “On Top of the World” and contains a total of 83 challenges. Reach the mastery level 20 in Dubai will unlock the Stair Master trophy. It will be necessary to complete about 85% of the challenges to reach that level, then it will not be mandatory to complete them all. Challenges are only available during online sessions. Completing challenges will increase your mastery level in this location, which can grant new gear and checkpoints. The equipment unlocked in Dubai can then be used in any other subsequent mission. We advise you to make a manual saving before any particularly important event within the missions, to gain valuable time and not repeat entire game sessions before reaching the key points of the events.
- The pianist: Equip the Fiber Rope and approach a target from behind to eliminate it with it
- Multifaceted assassin: finish "The Pianist", "Someone Will Get Hurt", "By the Hair," Direct Hit "," Odorless, colorless "
- Odorless, colorless: automatic from the challenge "Choose a poison"
- For the hair: You must administer emetic poison to one of your targets (put it in a drink or use ICA Pen Syringe) Victims will get sick and go to the bathroom to vomit. Approach from behind and drown them in the toilet
- Direct hit: shoot one of the targets in the head with any weapon
- Someone will get hurt: automatic when performing the "Vertical Approach" challenge
- Choose a poison: First you will need lethal poison. The boy from whom the disguise can be obtained in the first phase of the “Predatory Bird” mission will drop a lethal poison (Floor 01 Garden Area, Assassin in black suit with green shirt). Alternatively, obtain lethal poison from mastery level 10 in Berlin and equip it. Now go to the penthouse, floor 04. The chef will be in the kitchen on this floor. Throw a coin (some are on the kitchen counter) into the room behind the chef to lure him. Take him out and take his disguise. Now interact with the dish on the kitchen counter to prepare the food, add the lethal poison, press the bell on the kitchen counter to signal that the food is ready. Now just wait for Ingram to come and eat it. Only works with lethal poison
- Vertical approach: Complete the "(In) Security" storyline. Eventually Stuyvesant pushes his bodyguard away and stands near the edge of the roof, pushing him from behind
- Angry little bird: First you need to unlock the explosive golf ball by reaching mastery level 10 in Dubai. This can be placed on the panoramic terrace next to the golf course on the 04th floor of the penthouse. When Ingram hits the golf ball, it will explode
- Black Gold Eye: Complete the Predatory Bird storyline. Eventually you will have a private meeting with Carl Ingram in his room. He will send everyone into the room except his bodyguard. When he is in front of the table in the first room, you can push him from behind onto the small gold oil rig statue on his desk. It will be enough to knock out his bodyguard after the murder. This requires exact timing because Carl will move to the second room later, staying in front of the desk with the oil rig for only a few seconds. Doing a manual save before attempting this is highly recommended
- Impact art: Complete the “Fall of the Giants” storyline. Eventually both targets will be in the same room with a chandelier above their heads. Throw them out (don't kill them yet). Then drag their bodies under the chandelier. Shoot the rope of the chandelier to make it fall on the unconscious bodies
- Fall at a high altitude: take the evacuation key from the safe in the security room on floor 03 (safe code: 6927). Then use the Evacuation card on the wall panels in the Attic Floor 04 and Floor 05. This will trigger an escape sequence of your targets. They will meet first at the heliport. Then they will return to the penthouse to put on their skydiving suits and jump off the roof. After they jump down, shoot their parachutes. Follow them until they jump down, take out the guards too. You can grab their assault rifles to easily shoot the parachutes in midair.
- Two in one: Complete the mission "The Fall of the Giants". Eventually both targets will be in the same room. Line them up for a double headshot when they are together in front of the TV
- A steep assignment: When the mission starts, run to the top of the penthouse (floor 05) very quickly (use the penthouse guard disguise). Ingram tends to walk around the balcony and occasionally leans against the railing. Push it from behind
- Icaro: As soon as the level starts, head directly to the art gallery on floor 02. On the world map there is a corridor to the right of the art gallery. This is the corridor where you need to go. There is a panel that says this “Override Safe Zone” message. To use it you must first get a crowbar (located on the roof on floor 02). Then use the crowbar to pry open a fuse box (one is on floor 02 in the corridor between the art gallery and the roof, or alternatively in the control room on floor 03). Now go up the ladder behind the "sun", to the left of the panel that needs the fuse. On that scale you can put the fuse in a fuse box. Go back down and you can now interact with the “Ignore Safe Zone” box. Wait for Stuyvesant to arrive at the art gallery and when he is close to it, ignore the safe area. You should do all these steps right away, as soon as the mission begins, otherwise it may end up on other paths and not go to the art gallery for a long time

The following procedure shows how to perform Silent Assassin, Suit Only + Silent Assassin + Suit Only + Sniper Assassin + The Classics, in Hitman 3 at the Dubai location. The procedure is also valid for the Sniper Assassin challenge. To get Silent Assassin, Suit Only you can't kill anyone but your targets, you don't have to be detected and do everything in your basic clothing without disguising yourself. It is the most difficult challenge in each level. In the game options under Gameplay, HUD activates “Silent Assassin HUD”. This will show two green guns at the bottom left of the screen to confirm that stealth has not been stopped (if the guns turn red you have failed and need to reload the previous save). For "Sniper Assassin" you have to kill your targets with a sniper rifle.
- Starting position: atrium
- Stolen item: Attic ventilation, choose a sniper rifle (unlocked by mastery levels) - alternatively, you can equip the ICA briefcase
- MK III
- Equipment: Coin
- Dress: designer dress 47
- Hidden Weapon: It doesn't matter, no firearms will be used
- Gear 2: MK III Pick
- Other prerequisites: The passage to the ventilation area should already be open (check all Dubai shortcuts here)
1 pass: Go up the stairs in the hall, turn left and find a keyboard at the end of the path. Enter code 4706 to enter the staff corridor. Overcome the minion on the phone. Throw a coin in the corridor to the right of the two guards to distract them, then sneak through the door to their left (Maintenance Room).
2 pass: use the camera to open windows (frame them with the camera). Wait for the two people to leave the room, exit the window and climb along the ledge all the way to the right. Then go up to the building and enter through the window. You will now be on floor 03.
Step 3: Eliminate the single Guard (black clothes, red hat) in non-lethal hand-to-hand combat from behind. He will turn left with his back to you, use this opportunity to choke him (non-lethal). Put his body in the closet in the maintenance room (ignore the worker in that room, he won't notice anything).
4 pass: in the same place where you took down the guard there is a door, go through it. There will be two workers (dressed in blue) in that corridor. If the woman is talking on the phone, you can sneak past and choke the man (non-lethal). He will leave a key card, take it. Put his body in the closet. If the woman is not on the phone, you must suffocate her too and hide her in the closet.
5 pass: from the same corridor, enter the server room door. Use the key card on the platform next to the central screen. This will turn the screen text of one of the four server racks from green to yellow. The one with the text on the yellow screen is the correct one (it is random in every game). Do not pull the wrong one as this would trigger the alarm!
6 pass: After pulling out the rack, interact with the console. Choose option 01: rearrange the meeting and option 02: open the elevator doors. The first makes both of your targets meet in the attic so that they get trapped in the same room together. The 2nd opens the elevators for your escape, which makes escape a little easier and quicker.
7 pass: go to the end of the 3rd floor corridor and exit to the heliport. Go down to the end of the helipad and take the shortcut to the ventilation area (you must have unlocked it in a previous mission)
8 pass: Under the first small staircase in the ventilation area will be the contraband box with your sniper rifle! Take it. If you forgot to assign it before the mission you have to start over, or alternatively you can equip the ICA MK III briefcase in the equipment and insert the sniper rifle and take it with you from the beginning.
9 pass: Go through the second door on the back of the ventilation area (not through the first door where the item box was). Immediately turn left and go up to the balcony (you can interact with some scalable parts on the side of the wall). Go through the first door on the left. This is where the lock pick in your gear comes in handy! You can now enter the guest room.
10 pass: exit the guest room. Now wait for both of your targets to gather in the living room.
11 pass: at this point it is necessary to perform a manual saving. Now comes the tricky part: After the guards clear out the living room, we recommend that you go downstairs. There will be many guards, but if you go to the wall and hold Circle (PlayStation) or 'B' (Xbox) you can pop out through the flowerpot behind a guard (where the fire alarm is on the wall). You have to hold the button down. Sometimes the guards may notice you, so it also takes a bit of luck. If you stick close enough to the wall it will be fine.
12 pass: enters the living room. Now press the switch on the back of the counter. This will block the entire room. Nobody outside will hear anything. Wait for the two targets to stand up, take out the sniper rifle, align the aim with their heads, perform a double headshot. This is required for the “Sniper Assassin” challenge.
13 pass: Keep both bodies in the box on the left. Interact with the panel behind the counter again to unlock the room.
14 pass: suffocates the only guard in the corridor leading to the 3rd floor. Put his body in the second storage box in the room (the one on the right). Now go out in front of the server room. Reach the unlocked elevator at the end of the 3rd floor. Mission complete.
If you've done everything correctly, you'll have earned all the classic challenges at once: Silent Assassin, Suit Only + Silent Assassin + Suit Only + Sniper Assassin + The Classics for 20.000 XP (4 mastery levels).
With that, our guide dedicated to the hidden challenges of Hitman 3 in the Dubai location ends. Before saying goodbye, we invite you to take a look at our guide dedicated to all codes and combinations present in the new chapter of the IO Interactive series.
