Agent 47’s Silverballer pistols most popular weapon in Hitman: Absolution

Developer IO Interactive releases various facts and figures gleaned from players online

Following the release of Hitman: Absolution last year, developer IO Interactive has been collecting various bits of data and statistics about players.

For one, gamers have shown a preference to Agent 47’s trademark Silverballer pistols when it comes to taking down enemies, with the ‘King of Chinatown’ getting the dubious honour of being the most killed character so far.

Another interesting game fact is over 1.3 trillion dollars has been collectively earned by players in the Contracts component of the game, with the most-played Contract on each platform garnering over 500,000 plays.

The data has been pulled from the online enabled Contracts mode, which is the first ever online mode in the Hitman series, where players create their own custom hits on targets with their weapon and location of choice.

Created contracts can be shared with friends or the whole Hitman community and earned money can go towards unlocking weapons, upgrades and disguises.

PC World went hands on with Hitman: Absolution following its release and found the game to be enjoyable, both in the single player and Contracts models.

All of the key data has been compiled into a handy infographic that can be found below:

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
