In Hitman 3, new game developed by IO interactive, in the area of Mendoza, the mission called The Farewell consists of well 67 challenges. In this guide we will give you the instructions to be able to complete them. Reaching Mastery Level 20 will unlock the trophy Vineyard Virtuous. At least 85% of the challenges must be completed to reach Mastery level 20, so it doesn't matter if you don't solve them all.



Challenges are only available when the game is online. Completing challenges will increase the Mastery level on this map, which also means new equipment and starting positions. The equipment that will be unlocked can be used on all other maps. It is always preferable to perform a manual save before any important action, because it can be used to save time by avoiding having to repeat entire game sessions in case of failure.

Before leaving you to guide, we remind you that in the following text you could read some major or minor spoilers related to Hitman 3, regarding various playful sections and different details on the story created by IO Interactive. We therefore advise you to proceed with caution before completing the game's campaign in its entirety.
