Chongqing is a sprawling map with two separate secret fortresses for Agent 47 to infiltrate, making it one of the most complicated areas to navigate in Hitman 3. Thankfully, if you know exactly what you’re doing, you can easily breach the tight security perimeters and take out both targets in some pretty devious ways. Below, I’ve put down the most fool-proof method for earning Silent Assassin, Suit Only.
The tricky part is getting inside the ICA Facility hidden under the restaurant. Normally you’d have to sneak into the courtyard and open the keypad lock to reach the sprawling underground base. But, there’s an emergency exit you can use that makes life way easier — and even gives you an easy route to Royce’s private office. No tricky timing or guesswork here, just a solid plan to complete the hardest challenges in Hitman 3.

- Required Items – Planning Phase:
- Silenced Pistol
- Lethal Poison Vial (Optional)
Hush is the easier target. Go to the Northeastern Rooftop (Level 4) — which is the rooftop north of the restaurant. Enter the apartment building and take the stairs up. Out on the roof, climb off the ledge to the left and use the pipe to reach the rooftop.
- NOTE: Make sure you watch Hush attempting his weird project on the top floor. Once you see he has a terrible headache, he’ll go to the Therapy Room.
Cross to the abandoned apartment building and climb the ladder up to the Therapy Room (Level 5). Use the passcode 2 – 5 – 5 – 2 to get inside and subdue the scientist. Then wait for Hush to walk in by himself — shoot him and you’re done. Hide the body! If you don’t miss, the guard in the room won’t turn to search.
- Alternate Method: Sneak into the abandoned apartments and reach the Derelict Apartments (Level 3) and check the north hallway for the Fuse. Plug the Fuse into the machine in the Therapy Room (Level 5) and drop the Lethal Poison Vial into the ventilation system.
- You can easily reach the Fuse by climbing out the window near the stairs on the north side of the Benchmark Lab (Level 4).
Objective: Imogen Royce
From the inside of the apartment building, go downstairs to Level 0, to the courtyard behind the Arcade. Find the keypad and input 2 – 5 – 5 – 2 to unlock a secret ladder leading into the ICA Facility. Climb down and grab a screwdriver. Down in the Service Tunnels (Level -3), use the switch to distract the guard near the cupboard. Subdue the guard, then reach the vent beneath Royce’s Office. Climb up and wait for Royce to complete her patrol — watch and see when she moves back toward her office.
Before she arrives in her office, use her computer and select to “Fire Jeremy Bolt” — this will cause her personal bodyguard to leave. Now you can assassinate Royce in her office while she’s alone. Hide her body in the cupboard to finish up.
Now, just leave through the Maintenance Tunnels to escape. No need to hack the Data Core again.
