Contracts Mode is the first ever online mode in a HITMAN game and it allows players to create their own custom hits by choosing the level, targets, weapons and the rules of assassination. Created contracts can be shared with friends or the whole Hitman community and earned money will unlock weapons, upgrades and disguises, which can be used in Contracts Mode to deepen the experience.
