The Hitman 3 Flying Monkey Business challenge is one of the game's best. Here's how to complete it and earn the XP

One of the best challenges in Hitman 3 is Flying Monkey Business, which can be completed on the Dubai level, On Top of the World. If you're looking for the steps you need to complete the challenge, we'll walk you through everything you need to know about Hitman 3 Flying Monkey Business.

Here's how to get a target to slip on a banana peel while fleeing on a parachute.

The steps for Flying Monkey Business would be a lot more complicated, but luckily, much of it follows a Mission Story, "How the Mighty Fall," meaning the game will guide you for portions of this challenge.

To start, find one of the three bananas on the level. The easiest banana to find, if you're at least Mastery Level 4 on Dubai, is in the staff briefing room on the table. You can choose it as a starting location and already be dressed as a guard working the party.

Pick up the banana, and go to the Penthouse floor (Level 3). Head outside to where Ingram can play golf (you may know it from our Angry Birdy challenge guide). Make a manual save before placing the banana in case you need to reload for better placement. 

Holding LB+RB on Xbox, L2+ R2 on PlayStation, or ZL+ZR on Switch, place the banana directly where it's shown in the image below. This allows it to be placed as a banana peel rather than just a banana.

Notice how many tile lines it is away from the parachute (three). Be very exacting with this or you may miss your target. 

Next, head into the game's menus and choose to follow the Mission Story named "How The Mighty Fall."

For the next several steps, you'll be along for the ride, waypoint to waypoint, as you help Gray get some facetime with your two Providence targets on that level. He taunts them via video chat and tells you to "end it" when he's done, but don't.

Instead, let the scene keep playing out. Eventually, Ingram will find the panic button release and the previously locked room will open. They'll call for help having just been threatened with execution, and the whole place will soon go on alert, signaling an emergency evacuation.

The targets eventually run to their emergency parachutes (which, by the way, you can sabotage by cutting them with the kitchen knife found in the panic room.) They'll take the chutes and with their small army of armed guards, head outside to make an emergency getaway.

If you've placed the banana correctly, one of them will slip and briefly get knocked out, thus completing the Flying Monkey Business challenge. If they somehow missed it, reload a save from before you placed the banana and adjust accordingly.

Eventually, you'll get to witness the hijinx for yourself, and even pop an achievement or trophy in the process if you're playing on Xbox or PlayStation respectively. Well done, 47. That's all for the Hitman 3 Flying Monkey Business challenge. For more assassination tips and tricks, we've got more guides here
