Hitman 2 Update 1.14 (2.30) Patch Notes

Menu Optimizations

  • Hitman 2 update 1.14 made some backend changes to the Destination Pages that should result in faster loading times. The impact of these improvements will vary from player to player.

Legacy: Cheveyo Calibration

Gun-shy Guards

  • Fixed an issue where in rare cases, 47 could trigger the Combat state in direct sight of guards but they would not engage in combat.

Final Test SASO

  • Hitman 2 version 1.14 fixed a bug that was preventing the ‘Silent Assassin, Suit Only’ challenge from unlocking in the Final Test, despite the player fulfilling the requirements.

What Do You Need?

  • Fixed an issue where Agent 47 can get spotted from below when in the bathroom near Rangan’s office in Mumbai.

Mr Magician

  • Hitman 2 patch 1.14 fixed a bug where 47 could ‘dump’ a body through a wall in Neha’s home in Mumbai.


  • Fixed an issue where NPC’s could see through the trainyard door near the tracks in Mumbai.

Routine Retraction

Escalation Check

  • We’ve made sure that completed Escalations are marked as completed with a check in all menus. Only when they’re actually completed, of course.

Lil’ Stashy

  • Fixed an issue where Lil’ Flashy could not be placed in a Hidden Stash.

Knox Hidden

  • Hitman 2 update 1.14 fixed an issue that could prevent NPC’s from detecting Robert Knox’s body when they ‘saw’ it if he was killed in a specific way.

Electrocute Phone

  • Hitman 2 version 1.14 moved the ICA Electrocution Phone from the Explosives category to the Tools category and removed the ‘Explosive Device’ tag from the item for good measure.

Powdered Up

  • Fixed an issue in Santa Fortuna where a poisoned line of cocaine would have no affect on the NPC using it. For clarity, the fix will cause the NPC to be affected by the poison, not the cocaine. #BestFixEver

Contract Search Tile

  • Fixed an issue where players could not interact with the Contracts Search tile on the Featured Hub.

Within Scope

  • Hitman 2 1.14 made a change to how the XP Action text is displayed on screen to prevent it from taking up a large amount of on-screen space, especially when earned over a short period of time.

Ghost Crash

  • Fixed an issue where the game could crash when a player accepts an invitation.

Ghost Coin Description

  • We’ve changed the text description of the Ghost Coin to make it clear that when it has been thrown by Player A, the coin will appear in Player B’s world as a regular coin.

Lobby Images
