How to Stealth Takedown in Hitman 2
Hitman 2 is a game that rewards patience. As a silent assassin, you’re tasked with carefully finding the most efficient means of stalking your prey and taking them down. Stealth, therefore, is a crucial part of the game. Here’s how to stealth takedown in Hitman 2.
Stealth takedowns work in a pretty conventional sort of way in Hitman 2, though how they play out depends on the weapon you’ve got equipped as you pull the trigger or deliver the killing blow.
To perform a stealth takedown, slowly approach your enemy from behind and make sure you’ve got your preferred weapon equipped. When you get close enough, press square (PS4) or X (Xbox One) to initiate a stealth takedown.
If you’ve pulled the move off successfully, a takedown animation will play out, which will differ depending on the weapon at hand.
Do remember, though, that you don’t want to keep your weapon in-hand at all times. As we’ve noted in our How to Conceal & Holster Weapon guide, you can usually get around without raising any suspicion if you’ve got an ordinary weapon in your hand, like a wrench or pipe, but a gun will raise all sorts of red flags, so make sure you put it away when not in use.

Developed by IO Interactive, Hitman 2 is, well, the follow-up to the original Hitman episodic game that released a couple years back. The game continues the story of Agent 47, who’s essentially a badass assassin that takes out his targets in all sorts of creative ways.
