Hitman (2016) - Episode 31 - You Boint The Re-Soi-To!

Another week, another Elusive Target. This time, we take out a character who is legally distinct from TV's Gordon Ramsay.

In today's video, I made a slight error. I had said that both where the target goes, and what he does at each location, is semi-random. In truth, The Chef's routine, in terms of where he goes, is set. He will visit each location in the same order every time. That said, what he does at each location is semi-random. The idea is that players need to improvise, since they can't know what he's going to do.

In practice, it's just a form of delayed gratification. Most of the methods the player could come up with will work. The only difference will be the amount of time it will take the target to get into the right position for that method to work.

As an example from the very video, I poisoned the Caviar extremely early on because it's such an obvious addition to the level. I know that he's going to eat it eventually, but it might take him a while due to the semi-randomness in his routine.

So while I appreciate the effort but into making players improvise, it didn't really work out.
