Hitman 3 Controls Guide

Hitman 3

Hitman 3 is a complex game. You’re a super spy and legendary assassin. And to get the job done, you need to do some prep work. Much more basic than just choosing the right weapons and tools, you need to learn the Hitman 3 controls. These can be very useful for getting used to the game and figuring out what you can and cannot do.

To be extra stealthy in Hitman 3, you will need to master these controls. There’s a lot going on here, and you need to be able to memorize these controls to take full advantage of Agent 47’s repertoire of deadly abilities. This super-assassin is much more than a shoot-bang action man. There’s a reason he has such a fearsome reputation.

If you’re after more help for the new IO Interactive title, we’ve got your six. You might be interested to learn how to move your progress from Hitman 2 over, for example.

That’s it! Those are the Hitman 3 controls for all three platforms. There are some other versions planned, but those are not out yet. There’s rumors of a Switch port with cloud-based gaming support, as well as a Stadia port too. We will have to wait and see what happens with that.
