The Hitman series has always had something of a dark, comedic edge to it. From knocking out a CIA agent with a pair of chloroformed panties to disguising yourself as a keyboard playing police officer, a certain self-awareness is ever-present.

Some of the more epic claims include the revelation that players have collectively completed over 70 million challenges. Furthermore, the AI dialogue across all episodes of the game contains more words than the entirety of the Lord of the Rings trilogy. This is all very impressive, but let’s be honest, we’re really only here for the truly dumb stuff, so here it is:
- 70 people died in one single puddle.
- 2% of players killed Ken Morgan with a coconut.
- Over a hundred weapons have been used, including a golf ball and a toy tank.
- Over 110 unique disguises were utilized, including a vampire magician, a scarecrow and santa.
IO interactive are now working on content for season two, but they’re remaining firmly secretive on the details so we’ll just have to wait and see what’s in store for Agent 47. They did just release a patch for the game, however, fixing a number of bugs and improving gameplay.
