Elusive Target #21 has two primary objectives and one optional objective:

Primary Objectives:

The twenty-first Elusive Targets have arrived! Make sure you’re ready. There are no second chances. Elusive Targets will appear for a limited time only. They can only ever be killed once. Intel will be limited. Plan carefully. If you die during the mission… That is it. When time runs out, they are gone for good. DON’T MISS OUT

IO also has a companion app for players to help track their progress, elusive targets, and rewards. The companion app is available to down on both iOS and Android devices. Check out the official description of the app down below:

HITMAN Companion

The briefing videos for Elusive Target Contracts are of critical importance. Your contract handler, Diana, will give you specific information that will help you identify your target. If you want to review the briefing at any time when the contract is live – even whilst you’re playing the contract itself, the HITMAN Companion is the ideal solution. 

For every Elusive Target that is released, we’ll send notifications through the Companion, and you’ll be able to view the image, countdown and briefing video of the target for the duration of the contract.
