The best videos and GIFs from the Hitman beta


Hitman Bugs Header

The Hitman beta ran over the weekend, and a lot of people finally got a chance to play around in Io’s latest iteration of the assassination sandbox. Plenty of funny videos and GIFs showcasing the troublesome physics and dull AI surfaced right away, because this is the internet, but the lack of creative kill videos in comparison has us a tad concerned. Then again, what are betas for anyway? Quality assurance aside, here’s a spoonful of goofy sugar to help the medicine go down.

Hitman has a ragdoll problem

Watching this man disappear into a bunk bed and a tangle of his own limbs snapping in and out of existence is a familiar sight. Physics can go a bit wonky, especially in betas. Ragdolls happen. That’s life. What’s one ragdoll anyway? A couple limbs defying physics, space? Psh. A real assassin knows when to shoot and when to forgive.

Full polish, no wax, clean run

Contracts mode is going to be so sick.
Check out this absolutely ill run of one player taking out millions of germs at once like it’s nothing. It’s no surprise a crowd gathered to check out his germ-slaying skills.

Videogames are ART

Yeah! Yeah. (Thanks for the header image, art.)

Don’t quit your day job, Mister Security Guard

If I learned one thing from sneaking out as a teen, it was to
always skirt directly behind my dad. Grown men cannot see behind themselves. This might be the first game since the original Metal Gear to accurately portray grown men’s sensory perception! Great job.

Agent 47 and a stranger do the Pain Dimension Dance

The assassination scene got weird over the last couple of years. Are those arms? Are tho—OK, we’re OK. Just please. No more. Thanks to one our readers, Mangoman65 for this hell-gem, even if the shaky cam screen makes me feel like I’m seeing something I shouldn’t. Shivers.

Intermission: Silent Assassin Suit Only Run Overture

There’s no joke here. This is just someone that is pretty good at Hitman.
Look at them go.

Shoot for the stars

Check out this sick headshot, in which a real hitman shows us how it’s done. Go back to CoD if you don’t have the skills to transfer headshot energy into vertical thrust.
