“How The Mighty Fall” 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 a penthouse guard, find the server room, and to eliminate both of Grey’s targets in the Penthouse of the Burj al-Ghazali.

Along the way, we’ll help you earn the Chip and Dip, Impactful Art, and Pocket-Sized Empire 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.

Facilitate Grey’s Revenge

Listen, I want to talk to the partners directly, make them understand why all of this is happening. And that Terminal gives me an idea.

Mission Story Reveal

From the Lobby, head up the stairs ahead of you. Look for an information terminal to the right or left against the windows (there are a number of them and any will work, but the ones on the right are marginally closer). Visit one to get the Burj al-Ghazali floor plan and start the “How The Mighty Fall” Mission Story.

Infiltrate the Staff Area // Follow Grey’s Instructions // Locate the scenic route

Head for the Staff Area in the southeast of Level 0. Grey will feed you the combination for the keypad — 4706.

In the hall, there’s an alcove on the left with a hammer and a vacuum. Grab the hammer, turn on the vacuum, and then duck behind some boxes.

A mechanic will come check on the noise. Knock her out and stash her in the cabinet along the right. Repeat the process for the event staff talking loudly on his phone. Put on the event staff disguise, and continue down the hall.

Take the scenic route

At the end of the hall, wait for the two guards to leave, and then follow the hall to the left. Stay behind the boxes as you use your camera to open the window. That should prompt the event staff to leave. Knock out the event security, and put on his disguise. Stash the body in the dumpster along the east wall.

Vault through the window, and use the ledge to make your way to the right (east). When you hit a vertical beam, climb it as high as you can, and then shimmy left to another window washing platform. Scan the window with your camera to get back inside.

Find the server room

We’re going to do things a little out of order here — it’ll make your life much easier and earn you the Chip and Dip Feat Challenge.

Take the first door on the left — it’s labeled Storage Room/Server Room. Knock out the maintenance staff inside and stash him in the cabinet. Continue through the server room, but don’t touch anything. Instead, head out the maintenance door in the back right corner.

Take a left, and head past the woman on her phone. Take out the other maintenance staff around the corner, and stuff him in the cabinet. He’ll drop a Server Room Keycard. Take that back to the Server Room. (If you’re quick, you can avoid the other enforcer maintenance staff before she’s done with her call. Otherwise, knock her out and stuff her in the same cabinet.)

Swipe keycard // Acquire admin privileges // Re-order the schedule

In the Server Room, a keycard reader will pop up from the floor. Swipe the Server Room Keycard. One of the server rack screens will change from green text to yellow text. Interact with that one to sabotage the server and acquire admin privileges.

Use the terminal and hit all the buttons — disable cameras, open elevator doors, re-arrange meetings, and deposit emergency funds.

Disguise yourself as a penthouse guard // Infiltrate the penthouse floor

Conveniently, there’s a penthouse guard right outside the Server Room. Knock him out, grab his disguise, and stash his body in the attached Storage Room (with the maintenance staff from earlier).

Head north along the floor. You’ll pass the Security Room on your right — there’ll be a guard on his phone talking about a keycard and safe combination that you’ll need if you want the Geronimo Feat Challenge. (We’re not going to do that here.)

Take the next left into the Meeting Room. Walk straight through and out the other side through either door to enter Penthouse Reception. Take the stairs up.

Find the lounge

At the top of the stairs, follow the path as it curves left. You’ll walk straight into the lounge.

When both of your targets are in place, interact with the panel to activate the secure room. That will complete the “How The Mighty Fall” Mission Story.

Impactful Art Assassination Challenge

Since you’ve got both targets here, you might as well stick around to eliminate them. Watch the video Grey projects for a while. Wait for both men to approach the screen, and shoot the chandelier to earn the Impactful Art Assassination Challenge. You can also grab the Model of The Sceptre from the right side of the room to get the Pocket-Sized Empire Discovery Challenge.

However you kill Ingram and Stuyvesant, stash both bodies in the chest near the secure room panel. After that, you can open the shutters and calmly make your way out.
