** Two characters in ''Blood Money'' carry their own custom 1911 pistols loaded with Magnum ammo. It's also one of the few weapons that's unavailable after completing a mission with it.

The games are well known for their replayability and emphasis on variation. Most every level across each game is designed to be replayed multiple times as their are multiple solutions to each kill. Sure, you can ''just'' shoot that target, but it feels a lot more gratifying to kill them by poisoning their food, dropping them off of a high place, or perhaps something more unique for the given situation. While certain methods must be used in certain levels to reach the highest ranking, there is nothing in place to discourage experimenting, and the astute, intelligent or observant player may find a solution to a problem they thought impossible.

If you're looking for the trope for the hitman character type, see ProfessionalKiller. If you're looking for the comic book by Creator/GarthEnnis that {{Crosses The Line|Twice}} several billion times, [[Comicbook/{{Hitman 1993}} look no further!]]

* OptionalStealth: In the Hitman series, you can play the game like a typical Third-Person Shooter; however, you get a better rating (and thus unlock better weapons) by using stealth and deception to bump off your targets. The protagonist 47 is quite vulnerable to gunfire however, and for the first few instalments was unable to heal in the course of a mission, so even you wish to kill everyone in sight you would have to do it somewhat carefully. Blood Money added the ability to purchase bulletproof vests and medication to stave off injury, mitigating this somewhat.

** Again in ''Absolution'', in the Factory Compound level, there is a room with what appears to be a large bomb suspended from the ceiling. [[TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything Hit the bomb too many times]] and the scene flashes white. You are then treated to a special cutscene involving a giant mushroom cloud before the game over screen appears.
** Also in 'Absolution'', in the Central Heating level of Rosewood Orphanage, [[spoiler:47 will have a point-shooting face-off at the end of the level. If the player does not target all enemies in time, Wade will murder 47 in one shot and the player is shown a cutscene of wade talking to his corpse]]

** Some players see how many people they can murder with a hammer without being discovered in ''Blood Money''.
*** Harder than it sounds, as even with a proper disguise, [[TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything hammers look pretty suspicious when covered in blood]].
** Even more so, it's possible to complete nearly every mission in the second game with the golf club alone, with a Silent Assassin rating.

* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything:
** In ''Blood Money's'' training level, after entering the cinema with the gangster preparing to douse Mrs. Clarence's lawyer in gasoline, aim for the tank he's holding and shoot it multiple times. It'll blow up and kill the both of them.

** Still in ''Absolution'', one mission has 47 in a courtroom. It is possible to subdue or kill the judge, disguise as him, and ''dismiss a case then order a recess'' in order to proceed and access to the next section. This is one of the rare moments (if not the only one) where 47 not only dresses but also acts as the person he impersonates.
** Since it's possible to dress as a priest in ''Blood Money'' and as a judge in ''Absolution'', the player is allowed to perform a wedding ceremony and dismiss a court case in the respective roles.
** Once more in ''Absolution'', in the first level of "Dexter Industries", you must disable two security systems. While you are given a prompt to disable them by pressing a button, you could also simply shoot it.

** Contracts gives us the [=SG220=], which basically functions as a watered down alternative to the silenced Silverballer. Headshots at close range aren't even guaranteed kills with this weapon, though it is much quieter than the Silverballer and uses the much more common pistol ammo.

** The last target in "Requiem", Rick Henderson, is a sad-sack journalist with no means of protection. When you confront him, he'll kneel to the ground and beg for mercy. "You're secret's safe with me. I swear to God, I won't tell a soul!" However, [[ BlatantLies you can clearly see a tape recorder in his hand]].
