Hitman: Sniper Challenge is a single level, stand-alone DLC for Hitman: Absolution. Sniper Challenge allows players to control Agent 47 as he assassinates Richard Strong Jr, the CEO of weapons manufacturer Stallion Armaments, and his entourage of bodyguards.
Agent 47 takes position with a silenced sniper rifle on a roof overlooking a party that Mr. Strong is attending. The player earns points by eliminating targets. Points allow the player to unlock weapon customizations and upgrades for the sniper rifle to use in later plays.
Players who pre-ordered Absolution were able to unlock weapons in Sniper Challenge and transfer them to Absolution.
