‘Accidental’ kills that ensure you’re not even a suspect are often the funniest ways to assassinate targets in Hitman 3. Seeing them blow up or get crushed, confusing all their guards in the process is a great way to beat a level. So that you can prepare traps for the targets, here’s everything you need to know about how to place items in Hitman 3.
Throughout Hitman 3, you’ll get items such as explosives that can be used to kill targets and other things that can be used to distract them. While throwing them is always an option, placing them somewhere specific is often a better option.
How to Place Items in Hitman 3
First, it’s worth noting that there’s no button for actually placing things in exact places such as on tables or chairs. Instead, what you have to do is drop the item where you stand, essentially placing it on the floor. It does make things a little harder to hide in specific locations, but it does the job well enough.
To drop items to place them on the ground in Hitman 3, you need to press down on the d-pad when Agent 47 is holding the item in question, or press Y if you’re on Xbox (triangle on PlayStation) when you’ve got the item highlighted in your inventory.
If you’re dropping a restricted item, which will have a red exclamation mark next to it, make sure no one sees you because they’ll kick up a fuss if they do.
If it’s an item like a remote explosive, you’ll see that Agent 47 has a detonator in his hand after placing an item on the ground. You just need to press the right trigger button to set it off and kill whoever is nearby.
