Objectives: Assassinate Franz Fuchs. Assassinate Fritz Fuchs. Retrieve the chemical bomb. Escape with the chemical bomb.
You begin the mission outside of the hotel. Youre carrying a suitcase containing a sniper rifle. Drop it; you wont be able to get it inside the hotel yet. Pick up the conference ID and Dianas note to the left of your start position. Drop the rest of your firearms. Exit the start position and approach the front of the hotel.
The officer asks for the ID; you automatically show him the conference ID. Maneuver through the metal detector. Youre safe as long as you arent carrying firearms (the fiber wire isnt detected). Enter the hotel.
Fritz Fuchs is on the first floor. Hes inside the hotel swimming pool. Eventually he moves into the hotel sauna and finally leaves the pool area completely. If you hope to assassinate Fritz Fuchs with the least amount of fuss, you should work quickly to get to the pool area and either drown him in the water or fry him inside the sauna. Its possible to accomplish the task in your original clothes but youll have to be cautious of the security guard patrolling the pool area. Its possible to obtain guard clothes and then proceed to the pool area but youll have to work quickly.
Upon entering the hotel, follow the passage to the right side. Maneuver down the hall until you reach the locked door ahead of you. Wait for any patrolling guard to leave and be sure the door is closed behind you--the guards wont appreciate you picking hotel locks. Pick the lock and continue through the passage. Open the door ahead and go left around the spooky hallway (spot the ghost if youre lucky). Pick the lock on the second door on the right (room 108). Enter this room and be quiet. Sneak into the rooms right side and find the security guard clothes. Change your outfit and quietly leave the room.
Return to the hotels lobby and proceed calmly to the door on the left side of the stairs. Wait for the patrolling guard to leave then pick the lock. Maneuver toward the pool area. Check the map. You should see a target either in the pools center or inside one of the rooms along the pools edge. Peer into the pool area and find the target. If hes in the pool, remain at a distance and away from the patrolling guard. Wait for Fritz Fuchs to exit the pool and enter the sauna. If hes in the sauna, walk past the guard carefully and approach the sauna door.
As mentioned, it is possible to drown Fuchs in the pool. You must do so out of the other security guards sight and sneak carefully down into the water. Maneuver behind Fuchs head and use the fiber wire to drown the target. If you prefer the easier sauna route, wait until Fuchs enters the sauna completely then approach the door. Use the valve to the left of the door to fry Fuchs while he's trapped inside the sauna.
Once Fuchs is dead, open the door to the sauna and pick up the key to the X-ray room. Drag Fuchs deeper inside the sauna and leave. Close the door behind you. Return to the hotel lobby.
Since youre dressed in security guard garb, its possible to enter the security station to deactivate the metal detectors. This will permit you to get a weapon past the metal detectors and eventually into the room of your second target. If youve read Dianas note, youll realize that theres a "gift" for you at the flower shop. Its a box of roses holding a weapon inside. You can carry the box around undetected--particularly if you deactivate the metal detectors.
To do so, return to the lobby and ascend the stairs. Go to the right side and through the metal detector. Go right and through the door. At the end, turn left down the hallway. Check the map for the stairwell. Continue down the hallway. Dont stand too close to guards or other hotel patrons so you dont rouse suspicion. Go to the third floor. Check the map for the point of interest. Thats the security office. Enter it and use the switch inside to deactivate the metal detectors.
Now you can recover a weapon, such as the one you dropped at the beginning of the mission, the one inside the room where you took the security guards uniform, or even the one inside the box of roses within the flower shop. Return to the second floor and check the map. Spot the location of the target on the left side. Move down this hallway and find a supply room across from the targets room. Pick the supply room lock then go inside. Find the bellhop uniform inside as well as the towel. Change clothes and pick up the towel.
Approach the guard in front of Franz Fuchs room. Timing is very difficult here. Save your game beforehand if possible. First you must check the overhead map to ensure that the guard inside Fuchs room has moved out onto the balcony. Second, the guard at the door will only let you inside alone for 10 seconds. You need to conduct the hit and begin your exit before the guard can catch you. Speak with him and then move inside the room.
With the interior guard out on the balcony, you can make the move. Drop the towels and open the bathroom door on the left. Sneak inside the bathroom so you dont disturb Franz Fuchs shower. Close the door. Shoot him in the head. Exit the bathroom and close the door and begin the walk to the rooms exit.
Check the map and look for a civilian inside one of the hotel rooms. Thats another bellhop. Follow him. When he moves into a room, check the door to find a master key. Take it. Go to the room to the left of Franz Fuchs room and use the master key to open the door. Alternatively you can pick the lock but you must do so out of sight of any guards.
Move through this room to the balcony. Wait for the guard on the adjacent balcony (it would be Fuchs balcony) to move back inside the room then walk to the left edge of your current balcony to receive a new action: jump to the adjacent balcony. Hide to the right side of the door in a crouched position. Move far enough away so the door can open fully. It will help conceal you against the guard. When the guard moves onto the balcony, sneak up behind him and use the fiber wire to strangle him.
Walk inside Fuchs room and pick up the letters on the table on the right. Your primary objective is to pick up the suitcase on the other side of the room. It will hold the chemical bomb. Pick up the suitcase and return to the balcony. Jump back to the previous balcony and exit the room. Go to the right then through the double doors on the left. Ascend the staircase to the upper floor.
At the top, go left then through the double doors (marked 306-309). Exit through the door on the right (with the green light above). It leads out onto the roof. Cross the roof forward to the open windows. Theres a guard inside lurking on the right side. Hop through the window and sneak past the guard into the room on the left side. Alternatively you can eliminate the guard and steal his clothes. Sneak up behind him and eliminate him with the fiber wire.
Open the door on the left side. Maneuver carefully through the next room to the far door. Inside youll find the chemical bomb. Pick it up and place it in the suitcase. Retrace your steps back to the roof. Now calmly make your way downstairs and out of the hotel. Move cautiously so you dont create a disturbance. Maneuver to the exit point with chemical bomb in suitcase to complete the mission.
