FAQs: List of all Level Rankings
Q: What are the other rankings?
For your eyes only, yeah, and anyone else reading, too. Remember, folks,
some ranks are separated by teeny tiny amounts, so you may not be able to
get the one you want on the first few tries.
: (noise: 6 - violence: 6 - $0). You have to be ever-so
slightly righteous here and not kill anyone that's unarmed, I guess if
Civilians arm themselves, they become a legitimate target.
: (noise: 3 - violence: 2 - $15,000). If you kill your targets
with the RU-AP Mine and cause a teeny little bit of collateral damage
(innocent bystanders), everything will work out.
: ($5,000). Like with the 'Cleaner' rank, plant some bombs
and take out your target and a few innocents, just don't blow your cover
or leave any witnesses or bodies to be discovered.
: (noise: 2 - violence: 6+ - $15,000).
: (noise: 2 - violence: 6 - $100,000).
: ($100,000). Using the Stun Gun a lot is the order of the
day, I think it may help if you don't blow your cover.
: (noise: 1-2 - violence: 3-4 - $15,000). As a general rule, I used
the Tactical SMG to waylay my targets; witnesses don't matter, keeping
your cover doesn't matter, and eliminating Guards/Police doesn't matter,
just don't get too carried away and overdo it.
Evil Eye Gouger
: ($100,000). Stab lots of people with a Screwdriver, go
on, do it *looks away*.
: (noise: 4 - violence: 6+ - £55,000). Have you ever
really wanted to batter lots of people with a Fire Extinguisher? Good
for you (I think).
: (noise: 4 - violence: 0-2 - $25,000).
: (noise: 0 - violence: 2 - $50,000). Don't get caught and don't
leave any bodies behind.
r: (noise: 0 - violence: 2 - $75,000). Basically, just kill
anyone, anyway you want, just so long as you don't exceed 2 violence.
: (noise: 0-1 - violence: 0 - $100,000). You need to use a silenced
pistol, leave no witnesses or bodies to be discovered.
: (noise, 1 - $75,000).
: ($100,000). Can you waste people with the Hedge Cutters?
Of course you can - get to it, baby.
: (noise: 2 - violence: 0 - $100,000). You need to kill
lots of people with accidents and make sure you make some noise,
otherwise you'll just net yourself a Professional rank.
: (noise: 4 - violence: 5 - $5,000). Only kill Guards and other
armed security. If you need to eliminate witnesses, you can.
: (noise: 1-3 - violence: 5 - $10,000). Kill people using a
gun that isn't silenced, avoid witnesses, and kill at least a dozen or
so people in total.
: ($15,000). Kill plenty of armed Guards and leave plenty of
bystanders in a critical condition (use the Air Rifle for the last bit).
: (noise: 5-6 - violence: 4 - $5,000). Kill a dozen or so armed
Guards and have some bodies discovered, oh yeah, and you need some
: ($15,000). Just go crazy and kill scores of people and leave
plenty of witnesses.
: (noise: 6 - violence: 8+ - $0).
: ($0). Knock everyone out except your targets (kill 'em
with only accidents), leave lots of witnesses, and get caught on CCTV.
: (noise: 4-5 - violence: 1 - $15,000). Simply sprint up to
your target and kill them without even thinking twice about it.
: (noise: 1 - violence: 3-4 - $25,000). Leave no-one to
tell on you (yeah, you know what I mean).
: ($90,000). Kill scores of people using the Fiber Wire.
Prince of Darkness
: (noise: 0 - violence: 1 - $100,000).
: (noise: 5 - violence: 6-7 - $0). Kill squillions of people
and be indiscriminate about it.
: (noise: 5 - violence: 6+ - $40,000). Go to town with
the Hammer in a completely nasty, yet stealthy way.
: (noise: 3 - violence: 6+ - $75,000). The Sniper Rifle is
the order of the day, make sure you're packing something that makes some
noise - every shot must (pay attention) be a head-shot.
: (noise: 0-1 - violence: 6+ - $5,000).
: (noise: 0 - violence: 3-4 - $50,000). The secret to this
one is to be violent and stealthy. How? The Fiber Wire can add to the
violence rating quite a bit when used on Civilians. Do bodies matter?
To me, the rank seems more likely with one discovery than it does with
none (although, I have gotten the rank with no bodies, just less often).
: (noise: 0 - violence: 0 - $150,000). Avoid any
unnecessary kills, don't have a cover blown, and don't have any bodies
discovered (although, target bodies and bodies that are discovered after
accidents are okay). On Expert and Professional settings, you must
finish the mission with your suit (and with any custom weapons that you
brought with you).
: (noise: 2-3 - violence: 6+ - $55,000). On 'A New Life,' grab the
Baseball Bat from Vinnie's garage and kill everything (but not the dog,
even Mike Penance has his limits).
: ($100,000). Get mad and bad with Hammer - waste as many
people as you can with the Workman's favourite.
: (noise: 0 - violence: 10 - minus $60,000)
: (noise: 1 - $75,000).
: (noise: 0 - violence: 1-2 - $75,000). Eliminate your targets and
anyone who is foolish enough to try and stop you. Make sure that there
are no bodies discovered and that you have no covers blown. Witnesses
are a no-no.
: (noise: 3 - violence: 6+ - $100,000). Overuse of the Kitchen
Knife is the only way to be a true Sushi Chef (it's hardly fish that
you'll be filleting, if you savvy).
: ($100,000). Go all shiver-me-timbers down on the dance
floor on 'A Dance with the Devil' with the Cane Sword for this pirate-like reward.
: (noise: 4 - violence: 6 - $0). Kill a few armed Guards without
the aid of a Silencer and leave one or two witnesses.
: (noise: 5-6 - violence: 1 - $15,000). Go and kill a small amount of
people (anyone you have a mind to) - witnesses are groovy.
: (noise: 1 - violence: 5 - $75,000). Kill 15 or more people
using only silent weapons and leave no-one to tell.
: (noise: 2 - violence: 6+ - $5,000). Keep your
statistics low (i.e. the number of bullets fired, etc), but you are
allowed to leave a high amount of witnesses.
Q: Why am I getting witnesses when I've been so damn careful about things?
You're experiencing what is known as 'phantom witness syndrome.' Ever so
occasionally, you'll do something or kill someone in a way that the AI
deems to be 'impossible,' and as such, it'll magic up a witness report
(or allow people to see through walls and doors in order to find bodies).
If the game wants to throw a spanner in the works from time to time, then
there is very little you can do about it.
