Bird of Prey is a mission story in Hitman 3‘s Dubai level. You can complete this and (In)Security during the same run. Here’s our guide to help you out.
Hitman 3: Dubai mission story guide – Bird of Prey
Head to your right upon reaching the Atrium. You should see an odd-looking fellow named Zana “The Vulture” Kazem.
Kazem will go to the smoking area and get into an argument with one of the tourists.
Pick up the coins from the bench and toss them in the bushes.
You can subdue Kazem, hide his body, and grab his outfit. He also has a vial of poison that you can take.
Drop your illegal items in the bushes, too. Then, get frisked by the security guards.
Speak to Carl Ingram’s assistant, and she’ll take you to the meeting room.
Wait for Ingram to arrive in the meeting room. He’ll task you with eliminating a journalist.
Note: Make sure you’re sitting down while Carl Ingram’s talking. If you roam around, or if you annoy Ingram too much, he’ll leave and you’ll fail the mission story.
Go back to the grand hall and find the journalist, Hans Lucht. Hold “G” to make him follow you and lead him to a secluded area (i.e., a bathroom or a room with a locker/crate).
Incapacitate him and take a picture of his prone body.
Return to the lobby and give the assistant the picture.
Note: A bug may occur during this part where the assistant would just stay idle in front of a computer. You could just head to the penthouse without her help (the guards won’t bother you) and talk to Ingram directly.
Important save: There are many ways to kill Ingram, including several assassination challenges. Make sure you have a save during this part.
The most obvious method, if you’re following the “Bird of Prey” mission story, is by impaling Ingram’s eye on the tower’s replica.
Alternatively, you can press “Q” to subdue him. Then, drag his body to the balcony and toss it over the railing.
Now, if you let Ingram live (temporarily), he’ll walk to the adjoining office room and tell you of his plans to eliminate Arthur Edwards, the Constant. After this, he’ll tell you to leave the penthouse. His bodyguard will try to escort you, and dawdling around will make everyone suspicious.
