    Seen Been is now live as the first elusive target.

    He supports the Norwich of the North so I've already killed him. Not cleanly like that ponce Joffrey

    Failed it. Completely and utterly failed it. Blew my cover early and spent ages cowering in a safe spot. Eventually took out Sean Bean in what I thought was a blaze of glory, before being promptly mowed down by his bodyguards. This is all despite the mission briefing giving more hand-holding than I can ever recall for an elusive target.

    I gave it a go. Followed the story cues, then went for an explore. Got spotted by the android scientists so quit out.

    I managed the SASO on Miami as well - only after watching a YouTube vid though. I have no shame.

    Can you just quit out from the menu without failing the mission? What if you've killed Sean Bean but his personal army is converging on you and you're cowering in a bathroom?

    Just assessing my realistic options.

    You can quit and retry if you HAVEN'T killed Ned Stark, and if you HAVEN'T died.
    Otherwise, you'll have to wait to the inevitable re-release of the Elusive targets in a year or so.
  • Deleted user 21 November 2018 11:04:46
    @Alastair gotcha, better make it count then. Not waiting a year to retry.

    Seems to me that the best approach is to take your time to explore, learn any patterns of movement etc, and then once you've worked out what you want to do, start again and go for it.

    Too often I think I need to get in there and take out the Elusive Target as quick as possible. Just be ready to hit Pause and Replan Mission.

    Last night I tried 'Restart Mission' and the Story cues had disappeared. Like the game wasn't resetting it totally, so the story had played through.... Odd - hopefully Replan Mission will be a proper reset.
    I also had similar weirdness when doing the SASO last night. I saved before taking out Robert Knox and re-loaded after cocking up. Suddenly I get alerts that the race is ending - usually it goes on for ages...

    I turned off most HUD options to try to make the game more immersive but I don't think I can kill Sean Bean without some assistance. I spent about 10 mins on the tutorial stage looking for a way into the house. :redface:

    I kind of hope that because it's Sean Bean and because his character is called the Undying, that he actually just comes back and appears in all the levels.

    There's certainly plenty of speculation that that's exactly what might happen! :)

    I ballsed it up quite a bit but ended up killing Seen Been with an explosive rubber ducky. Then ran for an exit. Not particularly graceful but now I have an exploding pen so yay.

    I don't think I ever used the explosive ducks in H1.
    Do people pick them up out of interest, or do they just sit there waiting to be triggered?

    I tried to be subtle and place it unseen but some guard saw it and went over to pick it up. It's at that moment my plan became "detonate now and run away".

    Can you not have a nice conversation with Sean Bean instead?

    Feels like there's a bug in Miami. If I reload from a save before the race had finished, the race then seems to finish quite soon after reload. Well before the time point I reached in the playthrough where I saved, if that makes sense.
    It's as if the race time point doesn't reset to where it was when the save happened.

    Got silent assassin rating on the Elusive Target but it didn't go towards the silent assassin challenge for whatever reason. Appears to be bugged. Hope that can be fixed because I'm already missing out on a suit by the game not recognising that I have it.

    To even elaborate on my earlier suggestion, it would be cool if they could somehow track what type of method you used to kill the Undy.ing and make sure you can't do the same method on the next attempt. So if you shot him first time, you can't do it on the second one, or third, so have to think of other means to pass it like poison or an accident kill.

    @Tuffty
    I don't think that's a bug.
    The Silent Assassin challenge is for The Finish Line mission rather than Miami. So, you did it in an Elusive Target mission, which is different.

    @Alastair I promise you, there is a specific challenge in the Elusive Target category called something like "Elusive Target Silent Assassin I". You get the Termimus suit for getting it. There is also a second challenge for completing 5 elusive targets on SA. Should see it under the Elusive Target category when looking at the challenges menu.

    There was a bug in the first game where you didn't get that if you exited the level before the Unnoticed Kill message came up on screen

    @fontgeeksogood Not the case with me. Got the up close and personal kill with the pen. Cleared out the room before hand, I even remember seeing the unnoticed message. The silent assassin challenge for the Elusive is checked off in my menu. Not too worried about it now, IO recognised it's an issue on their Twitter and said they're looking into it.

    So Miami feels about as 'big' as a map should be. I'm nervous about Colombia and Mumbai

    Nearly completed all the Miami challenges..
    Still got quite a few disguises to find though. And I have to make the android kill someone who isn't knox.

    Completed every challenge on Hawke's Bay except the sniper one, which I can't do until I get a certain mastery on Miami apparently so pleased with that. On holiday now for two weeks, then back on it over Xmas, wahey!

    What a game!
