A Hitman 3 streamer spent hours putting the entire town in a freezer

Sssh! They’re sleeping!

Hitman 3 players are already getting the titular hitman, Agent 47, into all sorts of antics. The franchise is famous for its sprawling levels that are full of civilians who could potentially thwart the player in assassinating their target. Players have plenty of straightforward options, but some fans are getting particularly creative in their missions. Take this streamer, for example, who undertook the monumental task of knocking out an entire town.

Why would anyone do such a thing? Well, unconscious bodies can be dragged into a freezer for safekeeping. It’s the definition of an ice-cold crime, and it took a streamer RTGame hours to get everyone in there.

Daniel, the streamer in question, worked his way through the town of Sapienza — from 2016’s Hitman — in an attempt to find interesting and funny ways to mess with the populace. At one point, he tries to line up an incredibly lethal golf ball swing that would kill everyone in one shot, but he can’t make it work, so everyone is spared. Also, he’s dressed up as a clown throughout the entire ordeal.

You might think he’d chill out after this particular challenge, but Daniel has no intention of stopping. “The joy of games like Hitman for me is that they’re presented with an incredibly straight face, but allow you to do incredibly silly things,” he told Polygon over email. “I’ve previously killed 553 people using only a fish in the game, so it just seemed like a natural progression for the freezer challenge.”

What’s next for the streamer? “I heard there’s a wine press in one of the maps, and I’d like to apologize in advance.” Ominous!
