This guide will show players how they can kill Claus Hugo Strandberg and complete the Room with a Moose challenge that is part of A Gilded Cage, the mission for the Marrakesh location in Hitman.
The only requirement that has to be met in order to complete this assassination challenge is players must assassinate Claus Hugo Strandberg with the moose. Doing this, however, pairs very well with one of the opportunities in Marrakesh, so we’ll cover that as well.
The two essential things that you’ll need to pull this assassination off are coins and the ICA19, or any other suppressed pistol. If you’re not sure what else to bring, a lock pick is always a solid choice, but not really necessary for what we’re doing here.
Spawn in at the default location, and then proceed to complete the Prime Time opportunity. If you aren’t sure how, read up on How to Complete the Prime Time Opportunity, and then come back to this article to proceed with A Room with a Moose. One leads directly into the other.
Once you’re inside the consulate and the meeting with Claus Hugo Strandberg has begun, you’ll be told that you need to go upstairs to check on the lights. The door you want to pass through is to your left when you’re facing Claus, so head out into the hallway and take another left. Follow the hallway until you can turn right, and then turn right again next to one or two guards hanging out at the base of the stairs. Go up the stairs and take the first door on your left.
Before you take your shot, turn on the vacuum cleaner in the corner and take cover to the left of the door. A lone guard will come in. Let him turn off the vacuum, and then subdue him and place his body in the nearby container. You can now open the door and head out onto the balcony, but be sure that a second guard further down has wandered away. When the coast is clear, use your ICA19 to shoot the cable that is holding up the moose, completing A Room with a Moose.
There’s more than one assassination option available when you complete the Prime Time opportunity. Besides A Room with a Moose, players can also go for the Drama Queen challenge.
