Look, Hitman speedrunning pretty much always ruled.
There’s something so liberating about playing through a Htiman game as fast as you can, with no restrictions, including those that are self-imposed outside of the game: otherwise known as an “any percentage” run. The game is…pretty much built for that on the ground up! But that doesn’t make these new Hitman 3 speedruns any less impressive.
The race has been on this past week, as folks have been clearing the first Hitman 3 mission (Dubai – On Top of the World) in less than 10 seconds. In fact, for several days, the world record was nine seconds. Today, someone in Sweden claims to have cleared it in eight. It’s just a one-second margin: but the race is heating up!
