Gary Busey

Gary Busey – come on in, your time is up!

After a successful online campaign asking gamers to ‘Choose Your Hit’, fans had a choice between two of Hollywood’s awesome big names – Gary Cole (Midnight Caller, Office Space) and Gary Busey (Point Break, Lethal Weapon, Big Wednesday and Sharknado 4: The 4th Awakens) – to become the seventh Elusive Target, aka The Wildcard.

He’s out in Sapienza, Italy and has disgruntled his employers on an advertisement shoot who are sick of his antics when he refuses to carry it out, and so they want him terminated permanently. Not far, is Gary Cole and he’s likely to lead you to Busey (left in above pic). Other tips in the online briefing video below will help players determine his approximate location. of the target.

Note that players will need to own Hitman Episode 2: Sapienza in order to access this DLC.

In addition, this Elusive Target is available for 168 hours (7 days), up until 1pm next Thursday, UK time.

Square Enix should make more of these elusive targets as real people. Imagine if we got to bump off Katie Hopkins? Or Donald Trump??

Elusive Targets are part of the live content being published for Hitman in-between episodes and represent a new game mode debuting for players. They are not going to be easy but if you can prove yourself, you’ll earn in-game rewards for completing multiple Elusive Target contracts, such as signature suits from previous Hitman games. You will receive the first reward for successfully completing 5 Elusive Target contracts.

The Elusive Targets are specially crafted, unique targets, which come with particular rules:

  • An Elusive Target is a once in a lifetime experience
  • They are available for a limited time only in game
  • Intel on the target will be limited
  • They will not appear in instinct mode, or the mini map and their locations will not be revealed to you – you’ll have to go and find them
  • Plan accordingly before you engage your target
  • Your target can only die once
  • If you die during the mission, that’s it
  • When the time runs out, they are gone for good
  • If you fail, there are no second chances
