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:

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
