Description: Assassinate a target with the fiber wire.
How to Complete the Piano Man Assassination Challenge
The best way to get Piano Man is at the end of the (In)Security Mission Story, as Marcus is completely alone and easily able to be strangled. You must remember to have the Fiber Wire as one of your gear items when Planning the Mission!
Description: Assassinate a target in an accident
How to Complete the Someone Could Hurt Themselves Assassination Challenge
There are several different ways to get this Challenge, but the simplest way is at the end of the (In)Security Mission Story, as it ends with Marcus alone on a balcony and easily able to be shoved off.
You can also get this by shooting the chandelier at the end of How The Mighty Fall, or at the end of Birds of Prey by going to the balcony and unscrewing part of the rail with the Screwdriver before Carl Ingram approaches you to talk (this also gets you the Steep Task Challenge).
Description: Assassinate a target by drowning them.
How to Complete the Hold My Hair Assassination Challenge
This Challenge can also be accomplished during the Bird of Prey Mission Story. After the interview with Carl Ingram in the Conference Room, head into the side room and find the Emetic Rat Poison on the cart.
Later, at the very end of the Mission Story, Carl Ingram will be busy at his office desk. While this is happening, head into the side-room and Poison the glass of Whiskey at the bar with Emetic Rat Poison, then use the Blend In point on the wine glass. Carl will drink the Whiskey and amble to the nearby bathroom.
Follow Carl into the bathroom. If there’s a Penthouse Staff member inside, Subdue them first, then drown Carl in the toilet bowl. With that done, stash their bodies in the wicker box next to the bathroom and stroll out!
Description: Assassinate a target with a headshot.
How to Complete the Straight Shot Assassination Challenge
Straight Shot is best done at the end of the (In)Security Mission Story, as Marcus is alone and has his back to you. Take out your weapon and cap him!
It’s advised that you use the Silenced Pistol in your loadout, as a loud gunshot may draw the attention of a nearby technician.
Description: Assassinate a target with lethal poison.
How to Complete the Tasteless, Traceless Assassination Challenge
Another Challenge that is best achieved at the end of the Bird of Prey Mission Story. After you Subdue Zama “The Vulture” Kazem, he’ll drop some Poison Pills that you should take.
Once you get to the end of the Mission Story, Carl Ingram will be busy at his desk. While this is happening, head into the side-room and Poison the Glass of Whiskey at the bar with the Poison Pills. Use the Blend In point on the wine glass, and Carl will drink the whiskey and die. You’ll now want to flee the room before the Bodyguards realize that Carl is dead and start questioning you.
Description: Eliminate Carl Ingram by making him eat poisoned food.
How to Complete the Pick Your Poison Assassination Challenge
This Challenge is best done via the Bird of Prey Mission Story. After you Subdue Zama “The Vulture” Kazem, he’ll drop a Lethal Poison Pill Jar that you should take, as it’s key to poisoning Carl Ingram.
Next, make your way to the Hallway East of the Server Room on Level 2 and find the Penthouse Guard near the water cooler in the corner. When he goes to it, Subdue him and take his clothes, then stash his body in the Locker in the room South of the Server Room. Don’t worry about the Maintenance Worker in the room, he won’t notice you.
Now you can go to Penthouse Reception on Level 3 and head up the stairs to get to the Penthouse itself on Level 4. Head into the Storage room and take out the Penthouse Staff inside (there may be two of them, which will require using blunt objects to quickly Subdue them both). Put them in the Ice Cooler nearby.
Next you should turn on the Ice Machine: this gets the attention of the Famous Chef nearby. When he fixes it, Subdue him, take his disguise, then hide him in either the cooler box or in the bathroom.
With the Famous Chef disguise on, enter the kitchen part of the Dining Room, Prepare the meal on the empty plate, then Poison it when nobody’s looking. Now ring the timer on the kitchen island table to let Carl Ingram know that his meal is ready, and he’ll eventually make his way down, grab the plate, then sit down to eat his meal. And then he’ll die!
Description: Eliminate Marcus Stuyvesant by pushing, dumping or pulling him over a ledge or railing.
How to Complete the Vertical Approach Assassination Challenge
This Challenge is best done at the end of the (In)Security Mission Story, as Marcus will be all alone at the edge of the balcony. Walk up to him and push him over!
Description: Eliminate Carl Ingram by making him strike an explosive golf ball.
How to Complete the Angry Birdy Assassination Challenge
This Challenge requires a fair bit of setup, the first of which is finding the Explosive Golf Ball. The best way to get to it with this Challenge in mind is to use the Penthouse Terrace Ladder. If you haven’t unlocked it, grab the Crowbar from the Control Room on Level 3 on top of a box, then go to Level 4 and to the Outdoor Area and use the Crowbar to unlock the ladder.
That done, slide down the ladder and you’ll find yourself on Level 3 in a small Maintenance Room (this is South-West of the Server Room). Look behind the red toolbox here to find the Explosive Golf Ball. Climb back up the ladder and put it in the Golf Ball Bucket on the green turf.
Now you need to get Carl Ingram to play golf, which he only does when he’s irritated. Carl will walk around the place talking into his recorder, and sit down at one of two desks: one in the Study, and the other in the Master Suit.You need to annoy him during both. For the Master Suite, look for the Vacuum Cleaner in the hallway corner outsite. For the Study desk, look for the Radio in the West corner of the room and turn it on when nobody’s looking.
With Carl sufficiently annoyed, he’ll head to the Outdoor Area to vent his frustration and blow himself up with the Explosive Golf Ball you put in the bucket!
Description: Eliminate Carl Ingram by impaling him on his oil-rig model in his office.
How to Complete the Black Gold Eye Assassination Challenge
This Challenge can only be done at the very end of the Bird of Prey Mission Story. After you hand him the photo of the journalist, he’ll ask for some privacy, then tend to his desk for about 20 seconds.
While this is happening, there’ll be only one Bodyguard left in the room, next to the bed. Head behind him and silently Subdue him, which gets you in the clear to walk up to Carl and slam his head into the metal oil rig model on the desk! Ta-daa!
Before you leave, make sure to stow their bodies in the wardrobe next to the exit door. Once you’ve done that, step out and then follow the Bodyguard who talks to you so you can be safely escorted out of the penthouse.
Description: Eliminate both targets with a single chandelier.
How to Complete the Impactful Art Assassination Challenge
This Challenge is only possible at the end of the How The Mighty Fall Mission Story. After Grey has finished talking to Carl and Marcus on the TV, wait for them to stand close to the TV, then shoot the chain of the chandelier above to crush them.
You’ll want to make a save before making the shot, as it’s very possible for the chandelier to miss one of the targets!
Description: Eliminate each target while they are in the air parachuting.
How to Complete the Mile High Drop Assassination Challenge
You’ll first need one of the two Evacuation Keycards. They’re located in Security Room safes, one on Level 3, and the other on the North end of Level 2. Head to either one and enter the code 6-9-2-7 to open the safe.
While going to the safes, you should get what you need for the Flying Monkey Business Challenge, which requires some Bananas. You can find one each in the Security Rooms with the safes mentioned above, and a third in the staff Meeting Room on Level 0.
Now head up to the Penthouse and look for a Knife to grab from the kitchen. Next, head to the V-shaped hallway that goes around the Study room and locate the two red boxes on the wall. These are the parachutes, however there may be two guards close by discussing the evacuation drill. Wait for them to leave.
Now to set things up. First, open each red box and then use the Kitchen Knife to Sabotage them: this will mean Carl and Marcus will die trying to parachute out. Next, equip the bananas and place them on the ground as unpeeled bananas. You do this by holding down both bumpers on the controller (L1+R1 or LB+RB): when the banana is green, you can put it on the ground as a banana skin. Place down all three to increase the odds Carl or Marcus will slip on one.
With that done, you now need to look for the two emergency Keycard Readers. One is right next to two red parachute boxes, and the other is on Level 5 in the room East of the Terrace.
If you’ve placed down bananas for the Flying Monkey Business Challenge, you’ll want to go to the balcony on Level 5: anyone slipping on the banana peels will make you VERY suspicious even when you’re Blending In, so you want to be completely out of sight.
Once you’ve swiped both readers, the sequence of events will play out. First, Carl and Marcus will run to the Helipad balcony on Level 3 and go to the Helicopter. However the pilot wasn’t expecting an evacuation today, and advises them to exit the building via parachute.
So, Carl and Marcus will run back up to Level 4 and don their parachutes. If you placed bananas here, one of them will slip and knock themselves out, getting you the Flying Monkey Business Challenge!
With their suits on they’ll now run to the Outdoor Area and jump off, getting you the Geronimo Challenge. If you sabotaged the chutes with the Kitchen Knife, the chutes will fail and you’ll get the Mile High Drop Challenge! Well done!
Description: Eliminate both targets with a single bullet using a sniper rifle.
How to Complete the Conserving Ammunition Assassination Challenge
This Challenge is different than most because it requires you to use a Sniper Rifle, a weapon not normally contained in the level. The quickest way to get one is to reach Mastery Level 15 in Dubai, which will unlock the Druzhina 34 DZI. This is perfect because its shots penetrate targets.
Once you’ve unlocked it, go to Dubai’s Planning menu and select Smuggled Item. Use the Penthouse Ventilation Agency Pickup as that’s the most convenient place to put it.
Now enter the Dubai level and head to the Server Room. Unlock it as you do in the How The Mighty Fall Mission Story and select option 01: Re-Arrange the Meetings. This will get both targets in the same room together. Next, get yourself a Penthouse Guard disguise and head up to the Ventilation Area on Level 4. Locate the Briefcase under the metal stairs and pick it up.
You should also make a save file as it can be easy to not have the shot lined up.
Now head to the Lounge where Carl and Marcus are and squat at the bar when the Secure Switch is. Take the Sniper Rifle out of the briefcase, then make a save; this is a very tricky shot.
Activate the Secure Lockdown, then wait for both Carl and Marcus to stand up and Carl to turn away from you. Once he does, aim the gun to the back of Marcus’ head as they react to Grey appearing on the TV. At this point, Carl will walk towards the TV. When his head goes behind Marcus’, fire to take them both down in one shot!
With the deed done, put the Sniper Rifle back in the briefcase, hide the two bodies, then pick up the breifcase and stroll out of the area with nobody any the wiser.
Description: Eliminate Carl Ingram by pushing, dumping or pulling him over a ledge or railing.
How to Complete the Steep Task Assassination Challenge
The best way to accomplish this is to get to the end of the Bird of Prey Mission Story. After handing Carl the photo of the journalist, he’ll go to his desk. When he does, grab the Screwdriver under the TV and then head through to the side room and out onto the balcony. Look for the interact point to Sabotage the railing, then lean on the safe rail nearby. When Carl eventually joins you, he’ll lean on the unsafe rail and fall to his death!
Once this is done, head back inside, then follow the Bodyguard who talks to you so you can be safely escorted out of the penthouse.
Description: Electrocute Marcus Stuyvesant using the sun at the art installation.
How to Complete the Icarus Assassination Challenge
The first thing you need to do is grab the Penthouse Guard disguise. This lets you walk almost anywhere in the building without having to worry about people seeing through your disguise. You can do this by going to the hallway East of the Security Room on Level 4 (pictured above). Subdue him, then drag him into the nearby storage room and stuff him in the locker before taking his disguise.
If you’ve gotten here by using the Art Installation Starting Location, then Carl Ingram and his bodyguards will be at the nearby balcony, and are liable to spot you. If you’re not comfortable with drawing the Penthouse Guard away from view, you’ll want to wait a few minutes for him to leave when the Sheihk begins his speech in the Atrium.
Once you have the disguise on, exit to the hallway, Vault over the rail, then Vault over the raised blue tarp on the left. Grab the Crowbar on the box ahead of you. From here, walk forward and past the control panels to find the white Fusebox behind the blue wall. Open it with the Crowbar, then take the Fuse Cell. One down, one to go!
Continue walking down this hallway, then down the steps, then make a U-Turn. Stop at the Fusebox panel near the wall and use Instinct to spot two Crew Technicians standing around the corner. Turn off the Fusebox to draw one of them over and hide behind the red box nearby.
Wait for them to turn the Fusebox back on, then Subdue them and dump their body in the red box. Now Subdue the other Technician around the corner and dump her body in the red box further down the halllway. With that done, open the Fusebox close to the second red box and grab the Fuse Cell from it. Now you need to put them in their correct places.
Continue down the hallway and head down the blue hallway. Climb up the ladder in the corner, then go right to find an open Fusebox to put a Fuse Cell into it. Now go back down the ladder and go through the door on the right. From here, go left down the hallway to find the other Fusebox to put a Fuse Cell into.
Now you need to wait for Marcus Stuyvesant to get to the art installation. This can take quite a while because of how long his schedule loop is. You may want to just go to his position and follow him around just to make sure he’s going to the right place (and to keep yourself from getting bored). His routine takes him from the Black Gold Bar to check on his daughter, then to the Security Room on Level 2, then to the Art Gallery where The Sun exhibit is.
Once Marcus finally enters the exhibit, return to the ladder in the blue hallway backstage and look for the nearby terminal box with the yellow meter on it. When Marcus walks into the water in front of the huge pink The Sun exhibit, use the terminal to override the safe zone, which electrocutes him and completes the Challenge!

The next two are found on Level 0 in a room of the Staff Area, which is where the How The Mighty Fall Mission Quest takes you early on.
One more window can be found just after the pair mentioned above, as it’s how you make your way back inside after climbing up the outside of the building.
Two more can be found in the Art Installation Backstage on Level 1, in the North-West corner. This area is located East of the Garden where Kazem is found arguing with the Personal Assistant. These windows get you to the bottom of the Helipad Ladder Shortcut.
Description: Disguise yourself as the Helicopter Pilot
How to Complete the Rotor Man Challenge
The Helicopter Pilot can be found on Level 3 cleaning his aircraft on the Helipad. Don’t worry about being detected while Subduing him: he’ll always be cleaning the window and the two guards never turn to face you.

How to Complete the Shortcut: Penthouse Terrace Ladder Challenge

Description: Unlock the ladder shortcut at the ventilation area behind the penthouse.
How to Complete the Shortcut: Ventilation Area Ladder Challenge
The Ventilation Area is found on Level 4, accessible from either the Courtyard or the Study. Head to the Eastern corner to find the ladder and pry open the ladder with a Crowbar. You can find a Crowbar in the Control Room on Level 3 that overlooks the Art Gallery.
Description: Disguise yourself as a Penthouse Guard.
How to Complete the Elite Heat Challenge
You can get this Challenge naturally as part of the How The Mighty Fall Mission Story. After you use the control panel in the Server Room, look for the Penthouse Guard in the nearby hallway and wait for him to inspect the water cooler. Subdue him, then drag him into the maintenance room Locker and take his clothes.
This particular Penthouse Guard is one of the easiest and reliable ways to get the Penthouse Guard disguise!
Description: Disguise yourself as the Famous Chef.
How to Complete the Hot One Challenge

Description: Obtain a scimitar.
How to Complete the Toothpick Challenge

Description: Disguise yourself as an Event Staff Member
How to Complete the Waiter Cater Challenge
You’ll get this Challenge in the process of doing How The Mighty Fall. After entering the keypad door on Level 1 (code 4-7-0-6), grab the Hammer in the alcove and turn on the Vacuum Cleaner to draw in a Maintenance Worker from around the corner. Knock them out with the hammer, then hide them in the Locker and turn the Vacuum Cleaner on again to distract an Event Staff member. Knock them out with the Hammer, then take his clothes!
Description: Unlock the door shortcut in the atrium lobby.
How to Complete the Shortcut: Atrium Lobby Door Challenge
This shortcut is one of the least intuitive ones to unlock. The Atrium Lobby Door is on Level -1, to the right of the grand staircase up to the Atrium itself where the Sheikh delivers his opening speech.
From the main Atrium on Level 0, head right and locate the entrance to the toilets guarded by an Event Guard in white. Enter it and locate the male Event Staff in gold.
Go into the toilet closest to him, then tamper with the Toilet Control Panel on the wall and hide in the opposite corner near the door. Wait for the Event Staff to turn the panel off, then Subdue him. He’ll drop the Burj Al-Ghazali Staff Keycard.
Don the Event Staff’s clothes, then exit and look for the double doors next to a Maintenance sign. Use your Keycard to unlock it, then head through. Slip past the camera and head downstairs, where you’ll eventually get to the door so you can open it with the push of a button (you don’t need a Crowbar)!

Description: Obtain a skyscraper miniature model.
How to Complete the Pocket-Sized Empire Discovery Challenge
The miniature model is found in the penthouse Lounge on Level 4. You can get it without drawing the attention of the Penthouse Guard in the room, but the absolute best time is at the end of the How The Mighty Fall Mission Story, as the room will be in lockdown and the two occupants dead.
Description: Unlock the ladder shortcut at the helipad.
How to Complete the Shortcut: Helipad Ladder Challenge
The Helipad Shortcut Ladder is found on the Western end of the Helipad’s walkway on Level 3, close to the entrance doors from the inside of the building. You’ll need to get a Crowbar from the Control Room, also on Level 3, to unlock it.

Description: Find and equip all disguises at the Burj Al-Ghazali.
How to Complete the Chameleon Challenge in Dubai
There are 11 different disguises you can equip in Dubai. Luckily, you do not need to find and wear them in a single run: you can take as many runs as you like and even restart, and they’ll still count.
Here’s the list of all 11 disguises in Dubai, and well as tips on how to get them. All of these are listed sequentially so that you can get them all in a single run!
Otherwise known as Zana Kazem, who you’ll find near the Gardens on Level 1 arguing with a Personal Assistant. Follow him into the Gardens, then use a Sound System panel to draw him over and Subdue him from the bushes. This gets you the Wet Word Challenge!
Acquired in the Staff Area hallway on Level 0 during the How the Mighty Fall Mission Story. From the security panel door, grab the Hammer in the alcove before using the Vacuum Cleaner to distract the female Maintenance Worker, then head around the corner and Subdue the Event Staff on the phone. This will also unlock the Waiter Cater Challenge.
Found in the Kitchen on Level 0 near the Staff Area hallway. There’s two of them here and one of them is female (meaning 47 cannot wear her clothes), so you’ll need to throw a Coin across the room to get the male Kitchen Staff out of her sight and grab his disguise. To hide the body, drag him into the nearby locker room via the open door and put him into the container to the right of the doorway.
Event Security are the men in white uniforms. On Level 0, go to the room with the windows you can open with your Camera. Open a window and the woman will leave, but the Event Security will take longer to do so, giving you a window to Subdue him.
Head to Level 4 using the route from the How The Mighty Fall Mission Story (the one where you exit out the window and climb up the side of the building), then enter the room East of the Server Room. There’s a Maintenance Staff in the room searching a shelf who is easily Subdued.
Very close to the room described above is a Penthouse Guard idling about in the hallway. Subdue him, either with a thrown object or while he’s looking at the water cooler. Stow his body in the Locker where the Maintenance Staff described above was.
From the Penthouse Guard above, vault over the rail onto a dark walkway, then vault over the tall blue tarp on the left. Here will be two Art Crew. Once they finish talking, one will walk away while the other will man the control station. Subdue the one who walks away and stow him in the red box nearby.
From the Penthouse Guard described above, head North through the hallway and through the glass doors outside to the Helipad. The Pilot will be here cleaning his aircraft, ready to be Subdued. Putting on his uniform also gets you the Rotor Man Challenge!
As a Penthouse Guard, head up to the Penthouse and get to the Storage Room. There may be either one or two Penthouse Staff in here, so you may need quick use of blunt objects to Subdue them. Wearing his clothes will net you the Elite Heat Challenge.
In the Storage Room described above, turn on the Ice Machine to draw in the Famous Chef from the Kitchen area of the Dining Room, then hide behind the boxes. Subdue the Chef once he’s turned the Ice Machine off, the put on his clothes to also get the Hot One Challenge done!
One of the hardest to get, as the Bodyguards will follow Carl Ingram’s routine in the Penthouse. This routine will take Carl to the Study on Level 4. Here one of his bodyguards will stand in the hallway looping around it, which is the best time to Subdue him and stuff him in the wicker box nearby.
BE WARNED HOWEVER. There can be two Penthouse Guards nearby who discuss the Lockdown drill, and they won’t leave until their conversation is over. It’s best to walk past them at an earlier point (such as between the Helicopter Pilot and the Penthouse Staff disguises) so that they aren’t there by the time the bodyguard is in place.
It’s also very possible for Carl to not be in the Study yet. If that’s the case, you may have to sit through his lengthy Penthouse routine before he returns to the Study.
Description: Reunite the Stuyvesants.
How to Complete the Meet the Stuyvesants Challenge
For this Challenge, you need to make the secret meeting between Marcus and his daughter Amelia happen. Unfortunately, this doesn’t happen because Lucy Phillips is chatting away with Amelia and isn’t taking the hint that Amelia wants to be alone. And since Marcus requested a private meeting (and that he faked his own death), he can’t do anything.
There is an out however: Lucy says that she’ll only leave Amelia is something goes wrong with her art exhibition. So that’s what you need to do!
First, you need to get yourself an Art Crew disguise, and sabotage the art exhibition, and there’s a great place to do both. Head on over to the Control Room on Level 3, which overlooks the Art Exhibition on Level 2. Draw one of the Art Crew here away and Subdue them, then take their clothes and stow them in the red box nearby.
Now for the sabotage. Face the control panel window, then look to the left side for a Crowbar. Grab it, then look for the Fusebox on the right side of the control panel behind the blue wall. Open it with the Crowbar, then take the Fuse Cell to power down part of the exhibit.
Now you need to talk to Lucy in the Art Crew disguise to let her know something’s happened. You can find her either in the Black Gold Bar or the Private Bar on Level 1. If she’s in the Private Bar, you’ll need to be Frisked first, so find a private area and double-check your Inventory for items marked as Illegal. Talk to Lucy, and she’ll run off.
At this point, Amelia will then enter the Private Bar if she isn’t there already, then call her dad Marcus to let him know they can have the meeting. He’ll make his way to the Private Bar and you’ll get the Challenge!
Description: Exit the Burj Al-Ghazali while wearing the skydiving suit.
How to Complete the Suiting Attire Challenge
This Challenge, to exit the level in the Skydiving Suit from the level’s opening, is both harder and easier than it sounds. It’s harder because the Skydiving Suit will make EVERY area in the level a Hostile Area, making Agent 47 immediately suspicious and be shot on sight by any guards. That in mind, you’ll want this Challenge to be the absolute last thing you do in a run.
But it’s easier than it sounds because the spot where you pick it up is right next to an easy level exit on Level -1. Return to the blue curtain where 47 emerges in his Ashen Suit and check the suit racks for the silver sack with the Skydiving Suit in it. Put it on, then sprint to the middle elevator nearby quickly exit the level before anyone truly notices you.
How to Complete the Precious Moments Challenge
Description: Take a photo of Marcus Stuyvesant being reunited with his daughter.
This Challenge requires you to take a single photo of both Marcus Stuyvesant and his daughter Amelia in the Private Bar on Level 1, the balcony offshoot of the Black Gold Bar. This happens in the private meeting they have in the Private Bar offshoot of the Black Gold Bar.
The problem is that Marcus won’t attend the meeting because Lucy Phillips is with Amelia and isn’t taking the hint that Amelia wants to be alone. Getting Lucy away requires you do the Meet the Stuyvesants Challenge, where you take a Fuse Cell from the art exhibition and talk to Lucy dresses as an Art Crew member. Go to the Meet the Stuyvesants Challenge to learn how to do this in detail.
Once Lucy’s gone, it’s time to take the photo. You’ll want to head to the Private Bar, however unless you’re dressed as an armed guard, you must pass a Frisk to get in. Find a private area and drop all Inventory items marked as illegal, then go back and enter the bar.
Once you’re in, take out your camera and wait for Marcus to arrive. Remember, the photo MUST have both Marcus and Amelia in it for the Challenge to count!

This Challenge involves triggering the emergency evacuation sequence, and can be done as part of the Mile High Drop Challenge listed above. Read that Challenge’s walkthrough to learn how to get this Challenge along the way!
Description: Hack the server room without triggering the silent alarm.
How to Complete the Chip and Dip Challenge
Getting this Challenge requires skipping the initial “pull the server rack” test from the How The Mighty Fall Mission Story. When you first arrive in the Server Room, ignore the terminal and skip straight to the part where you incapacitate the male Maintenance Worker on the corner of the nearby balcony. Grab his card, hide the body, then return to the Server Room and use the card to access the server. This will pop the Challenge!
Description: Pacify the Sheikh using a goldbar.
How to Complete the Cashing Out Challenge
To get a Gold Bar, you need go to the Server Room terminal on Level 3 and select option 04: Deposit Emergency Funds. This will cause the Gold Bar vending machine on Level -1 (the bottom of the Atrium grand staircase) to spit out Gold Bars. Head all the way down there and grab one.
Now you need to throw it at the Sheikh, Omar Al-Ghazali, the man who does the grand speech in the Atrium. If you don’t care about getting into trouble, find him at the Black Gold Bar on Level 1, Save, and then throw it to pop the Challenge before reloading.
If you want to get this Challenge covertly, you’ll be in for a tougher challenge. Find the Sheikh in the Black Gold Bar on Level 1 and wait for him to talk with Marcus Stuyvesant (this is the tricky part because their paths sometimes don’t line up). Once he does, he’ll eventually retreat for the Penthouse.
Follow him up, but stop when you go through the Storage Room with the shelves of food. Wait for him to leave, then Subdue the Penthouse Staff and don his disguise before hiding him in the ice box. You should also take his Penthouse Key.
Now rush out to catch up with the Sheikh; with the Penthouse Staff disguise, you’ll have a much easier time getting past the Penthouse Guards. The Sheikh will eventually enter the Guest Bedroom (he may talk to Carl Ingram in his office) and ask for his guards to leave him. Wait for him to go to bed (take a photo of him in bed to get the Nightcrawler Challenge!), then throw the Gold Bar at him after he wakes up!
Description: Take a photo of the Sheikh sleeping.
How to Complete the Nightcrawler Challenge
This Challenge is one of the hardest to accomplish in Dubai thanks to the Sheikh’s lengthy routine. It starts with the opening ceremony in the Atrium, then he goes to the Black Gold Bar to speak with Marcus Stuyvesant. It’s very possible for him to be out of sync with Marcus, leaving him stuck in the Black Gold Bar.
Therefore, the best thing to do is to start the level at the Atrium Starting Location, head up the stairs to trigger the Sheikh’s opening ceremony, then go get yourself a Penthouse Guard disguise from the hallway on Level 3 before looking for Marcus in the Art Exhibit. Follow Marcus to the rail overlooking the Black Gold Bar and he should encounter the Sheikh, all done with his speech.
Now tail the Sheikh as he meets with an architect friend and decide to retire to the Penthouse. When he gets to the Penthouse, he’ll pass through the Storage room where a Penthouse Staff member is observing the food stores. Subdue him when the room is empty, as his disguise will help you get past other Penthouse Guards.
Stow away the Penthouse Staff’s body and catch up with the Sheikh. If Carl Ingram is in his office, the Sheikh will have a private conversation with him before going to the Guest Bedroom. Follow him inside while the door is briefly open, and he’ll eventually ask his guards to leave him. When he lays on the bed, you’ll have a small window to take out your Camera and snap a picture of him!

How to Complete the Disturbing the Peace Challenge
This Challenge is accomplished in the Penthouse on Levels 4 and 5. Carl will often be talking into his recorder, and hates being disturbed. There are two spots to annoy him: one is the Radio in the Study on Level 4, which works when he’s recording at the nearby desk. The other is a Vaccuum Cleaner in the hallway corner just outside the Master Suite on Level 5.
If you do both of these while Carl is trying to speak into his recorder, he’ll get frustrated enough to head to the Outdoor Area on Level 4 to hit some golf balls, which is a perfect setup for the Angry Birdy Challenge!

This Challenge involves having either Marcus or Carl slip on a banana peel during the emergency evacuation sequence, and can be done as part of the Mile High Drop Challenge listed above. Read that Challenge’s walkthrough to learn how to get this Challenge along the way!
Description: Serve Marcus Stuyvesant his requested drink at the art gallery bar.
How to Complete the Particular Palette Challenge
To complete this Challenge, you need to serve Marcus a drink at the art gallery bar specifically. However, this bar is missing a Whiskey Bottle, so you’ll need to find it first.
This Challenge is a great way to kill Marcus via poisoning. You can get some Poison Pills off of Zana Kazem, the Assassin on Level 1, however you’ll be VERY pressed for time to Subdue him, grab the pills, then get a Whiskey Bottle and set things up before Marcus passes by.
To begin, locate the keypad door on Level 0 near the grand staircase and enter 4-7-0-6 to enter the Staff Area. Use the Vaccuum Cleaner to distract and subdue the Maintenance Worker, then head around the corner to Subdue the Event Staff on the phone and nab his clothes. Stow him in the nearby Locker.
Now for the Whiskey Bottle. Head down the hallway and make a U-Turn left past the two Event Guards and up the staircase (you’ll be so fast you won’t be noticed). At the top of the first flight of stairs, look right for the Storage door.
Use Instinct vision to find out where the Event Staff is in the room: he can see through 47’s disguise so you don’t want to be spotted by him. When you can slip past, enter the room and make a U-Turn to the right around the metal barrels on the cart to find a shelf, where you can find the Whiskey Bottle.
Now to get to the bar! Exit the gold-rimmed door here to exit to the Black Gold Bar. Head left up the steps (being careful of an Enforcer Event Guard at the top) and head right. Veer right to go through the glass doors and onto the blue balcony where the bar is.
Place the Whiskey Bottle on the bar so that you can Serve Whiskey (if you have the Poison Pills, this is when you should poison the glass). Now wait for Marcus to pass by: this may take a while, but his routine will eventually take him through here. When he does, look at him and use the interact to Serve him, and he’ll take a drink!
Description: Push or dump anyone down an elevator shaft.
How to Complete the High Rise Drop Challenge
This Challenge requires that the elevators are opened. This can only be done via the terminal in the Security Room, but luckily once they’re open, they’re open forever.
The best spot to do this challenge is in the staff hallway accessed through the keypad door early in the How The Mighty Fall Mission Story. Around the corner is an Event Staff complaining on his phone near a Maintenance Worker. Distract and knock out the Worker using the Vaccum Cleaner, then wait for the Event Staff to finish his call and stand in front of the elevator shaft. Then push him in!
