This guide will show players how to complete the Electrified assassination challenge, part of A Gilded Cage, the new mission in the Marrakesh location for Hitman.
As we’ve mentioned previously, killing Claus Hugo Strandberg is a lot more difficult than killing General Reza Zaydan. The exception to this is any assassination challenge that you can pull off while players are disguised as the cameraman. To do this, gamers will need to Complete the Prime Time Opportunity, which we’re going to ask you to do before we begin with the Electrified challenge.
Once you’ve completed the Prime Time opportunity, the only requirement you’ll have to meet in order to finish the Electrified challenge is to assassinate Claus Hugo Strandberg by electrocuting him. There are a few things you’ll have to be mindful of to do this, but we’ve got your back on all of them.
After players have started the camera and the interview begins, leave the room through the door on the opposite side of the room from where you entered. You’ll be in a hallway, and if you turn left and start to walk you’ll see a door on the left just past a photocopy machine. Go through the door and you’ll be in the security room. Grab the screwdriver off the shelf just to your right.
Leave the security room and continue down the hallway, turning right when you can. Go up the stairs that are also on your right and you’ll find yourself on the second floor. Go through the first door on your left and you’ll be in a utility room. Turn on the vacuum and snap to cover on the left side of the door. When the guard comes in, subdue him and turn off the vacuum. Don’t forget to stuff his body in the nearby container.
With the hard part over, head out onto the balcony and use the screwdriver to expose the wire on the stage lamp. Take a look toward the far end of the balcony and make sure there is no guard, then head that way and through the door in front of you. Turn immediately left and go through another door to find yourself in a control room. Once there, turn on the stage lamp and wait.
Claus Hugo Strandberg will finish his interview with GNN, after which he’ll start to wander around. This will lead him to the balcony where you sabotaged the stage lamp. When he puts his hands on the railing, your target will get quite the shock, and the Electrified challenge will be complete.
