Hitman 3 Nightcrawler Challenge Guide: How Take a Picture of the Sheik

The Hitman 3 Nightcrawler challenge isn't as difficult as some others, but it requires a great deal of patience. Here's how to complete the challenge.

Of all the hundreds of challenges in the game, the Hitman 3 Nightcrawler challenge is among the creepiest. It requires you to take a picture of the Sheik sleeping in his guest room in Dubai during On Top of the World. But since there's XP on the line, we did it anyway, and you can too if you follow our guide.

It's not a difficult challenge by most measures, but it does require some patience and a quick snap of the camera when it's time. Here's how to complete the Hitman 3 Nightcrawler challenge.

Hitman 3 Nightcrawler Challenge Walkthrough

The Sheik always begins the level speaking on stage, as he's unveiling the gold-coated skyscraper you're standing in. You can find the stage at the beginning of the level.  

Notice that his outfit is darker, while everyone else dressed like him is wearing white. Keep that in mind so he's easy to find in a bit, because the first thing you'll want to do is change into the disguise of a Penthouse guard. They're the security guards with red hats who are mostly found on Level 3 and up.

There seems not to be any particular guard who is especially vulnerable, so pick one that works for you and be sure to hide the body. You don't want to cause a disturbance and get the Skeik off his path.

Once you're dressed like a Penthouse guard, head back down to the heart of the party where the Sheik will still be mingling with guests.

Depending on how long you were gone, he's either going to be at the bar, speaking with random guests, or talking with one of the targets for the level, Marcus Stuyvesant. After he does this, the Sheik returns to the bar, then tells his guards he's going to "retire upstairs."

Mind that you're intent this whole time is to simply keep following him. Don't let him out of your sight, but also be mindful of the guards who can see through your disguise and dodge them as needed.

Eventually, the Sheik will enter Carl Ingram's private room and speak on the balcony for a moment. While he is in there, break into the locked room at the end of the hall. It's his room, and you'll want to get in easily before he enters, though you could also try to walk right in behind him if you can avoid the guard suspicious of you in that hall.

After that, he will head into his room and tell his guards he is going to get some rest. He doesn't kick you out, so stay by his bed and pull out Agent 47's camera tool. 

The Sheik will only rest for a brief moment, less than five seconds rather inexplicably, so take the photo quickly, and you'll have your creepy challenge completed. Well done, 47.
