    Meh, I had to stop halfway into that. It's just such contrived BS to suggest a hitman would create is own contracts. Hitmen never work that way. They don't go around acting as their own agent offering hits as if a door to door salesman. They take contracts very covertly via a handler. The less hand they have in choosing the marks, the less responsibility they take if it backfires.

    I mean really. I know a lot of devs are trying to go out of their way to offer variety and replay value, but at least have it make some sense.

    I believe this is mp mode although not stated correctly.

    hence contracts.

    They clearly said create your own contracts, up to 3 marks. What else could that mean but customize whom and where you kill someone? Agent 47 is supposed to be a hitman, not a contractor. Then again, it was always a bit of a stretch in the first place adapting a game like this to mp. This time it seems they've gone too far though.

    AFAIK, 47 does not work anymore for the Agency, so he could be something else than a traditional HM now (I don't know the storyline of Absolution, but the Agency ceased to exist in Blood Money).
