Bird of Prey Hitman 3 Dubai guide and walkthrough Image: IO Interactive via Polygon

“Bird of Prey” is a Mission Story in Hitman 3’s “On Top Of The World” Mission. In Dubai, United Arab Emirates, Agent 47 must assume the role of Zana “The Vulture” Kazem, meet with Carl Ingram, and silence a journalist in the Burj al-Ghazali.

Along the way, we’ll help you earn the Wet Worker and Black Gold Eye Challenges.

In this Hitman 3 guide, we’ll walk you through every step you’ll need to take. Below, we’ve got maps showing where to start, important items to find, where every clue is, and every location you’ll need to visit.

Join the meeting with Carl Ingram

Zana Kazem, aka “The Vulture.” One of the top agents working for Crystal Dawn, the Pan-African terrorist organization. I almost hired him myself once but chose The Maelstrom instead. Now, what is his business here?

From the Lobby, head up and to the right. Pass through the Atrium, and then continue up to the Garden on Level 1. You’ll walk up to a man having an argument with some guards and start the “Bird of Prey” Mission Story.

Disguise yourself as Zana “The Vulture” Kazem

Follow Kazem away from the guards, and he’ll head toward a nearby bench to the north. As you follow him, there’s a small, closed-off sitting area on your right.

Duck in, and turn on the sound system. Hide in the bushes (?) while Kazem comes to investigate. Let him turn off the sound system (so no one else investigates), and then subdue him. Put on the assassin disguise.

While you’re back here, dump anything illegal you might be carrying.

Talk to Omar al-Ghazali’s personal assistant

Head back to where you found Kazem arguing with the guards, and let them frisk you. Head up the stairs and speak to Omar al-Ghazali’s personal assistant.

Follow the assistant to the meeting room // Wait for Ingram in the meeting room // Listen to what Ingram has to say

Follow her up the stairs and into the meeting room. Don’t pick up anything when you arrive, or you’ll alert the three guards. Just head for the chair that’s been pulled out and wait.

Listen to Ingram as he gives you a task. Take the file and leave.

Locate Hans Lucht // Take a picture of Hans Lucht incapacitated

Head out the door you came in and back down the stairs. Make your way back to the Atrium. You’ll likely find Lucht at the bar on the far side, although he roams around the west side of Level 0/Level 1.

Approach him, and offer to escort him. Lead him back across the Atrium to the north. Take the stairs up (this is right next to where you got frisked) and hook around into the first room on the right.

Lead Lucht right over to the cabinet there. Take a quick look around to make sure no one can see you, and subdue him. Take a picture with your camera (include his face), and then stuff him in the cabinet.

Bring the picture to the assistant // Follow the assistant to the penthouse

Take the stairs all the way back up to the meeting room. You’ll find the assistant at the Penthouse Reception desk. Give her the photo of Ingram’s target, and then follow her again.

She’ll lead you all the way up to the Master Suite on Level 5. Head inside and talk to Ingram. That will complete the “Bird of Prey” Mission Story. As long as you’re here, though …

Black Gold Eye Assassination Challenge

When Ingram dismisses everyone, one guard will remain standing by the bed. As soon as Ingram turns his back, subdue the bodyguard. Once he’s down, head over and eliminate Ingram.

If you do this quickly enough, you’ll have the chance to unlock the Black Gold Eye Assassination Challenge, which can be completed only at the end of this Mission Story. After taking care of Ingram’s bodyguard, run over to Ingram while he’s still hunched over his desk, examining a model of an oil rig. Use the “eliminate” prompt to impale him on the model.

Stash Ingram and his bodyguard in the closet on the other side of the bed, and head out.
