“(In)Security” 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 Stuyvesant’s replacement bodyguard, find some transfer papers, and throw some knives on top of the Burj al-Ghazali.

Along the way, we’ll help you earn the Vertical Approach Challenge.

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.

Take the role of Stuyvesant’s replacement bodyguard

Stuyvesant is expecting a replacement guard. If you can locate him, we should be able to get within strangling distance of the little worm.

Mission Story Reveal

To start this Mission Story, you need to get up to the Security Room on the south side of Level 2. From the Lobby, head up the stairs and turn left. You’ll pass a bar on your left. Stop there and pick up a couple coins from the bar — we’ll use them in a second.

Continue to the south and head up the stairs until you hit the south wall. Turn left and keep going up through the Black Gold Bar. Stick to the wall and head up to Level 2.

When you reach the Accumulus: Sky Is The Limit wall outside the Art Gallery, look for a small hallway to your left. Wait for the guard to leave on his patrol, and duck into the hallway. Crouch behind the crate there, and wait for the guard to return.

Toss a coin down the hall past you, then subdue the event security guard, put on his disguise, pick up his gun, and grab the security key. Stash his body in the crate.

Use the key on the door in that hallway to enter the Security Room. As soon as you walk in, you’ll spot a couple more guards having a conversation. Eavesdrop on them to pick up the “(In)Security” Mission Story.

Locate the missing recruit // Acquire the recruit’s orders

Head back out of the Security Room to the south, and take a left. Pass through the double doors to find a set of stairs leading down. Take them down two floors to Level 0. You’ll come out near some vending machines, and there’ll be a wrench on the boxes to your left. Grab that — it’ll make the next step easier.

Turn right and head into the Kitchen. Keep to the right to find a locker room (seems unsanitary) — the first door is locked, but the one a little farther in is open. The recruit is there, talking to a woman from event staff. Knock them both out (with the wrench), and stash their bodies in the crate to your left.

Pick up the transfer papers from the bench on the right.

Present yourself at the security office // Wait for Marcus in the security office // Give your orders to Stuyvesant

Backtrack up to the same Security Room where you started the Mission Story. Announce your arrival and wait for Marcus. When he arrives, give him the transfer papers.

Follow Stuyvesant to the balcony // Hit the four targets with knives

Follow Stuyvesant to the balcony. He’ll talk a lot, and then challenge you to hit four moving targets with kitchen knives. Pick up all six knives (it’s always good to have extras), and then throw them at the four targets.

That will complete the “(In)Security” Mission Story, but it’d be a shame to waste these knives, so …

Vertical Approach Assassination Challenge

Quickly take out the other guard to your right with a knife to the face — or wait for him to walk away after Stuyvesant dismisses him — and then come up behind Stuyvesant. Give him a push to eliminate him and earn the Vertical Approach Assassination Challenge.
