It’s hard to deny that the Blue Flamingo Suit is among the best costumes in the Hitman World of Assassination trilogy. However, the method for acquiring has changed between Hitman 2 and Hitman 3. So here’s a primer on how it works.
First off, if you want to unlock absolutely everything in Hitman 3, I wrote a separate guide for that. This guide is specifically about the Blue Flamingo Suit.
Now, if you already earned this in Hitman 2, you should be able to import your save file into Hitman 3 and have it unlocked already.
As a quick reminder, in Hitman 2, you unlock the Blue Flamingo Suit by completing the Spring Breaker challenge list, which was added to Hitman 2 with the Spring Breaker challenge pack.
However, the Spring Breaker challenges aren’t available in Hitman 3. Don’t fret, though, because there’s another way to unlock the greatest suit of them all.
This particular item is located in your Featured Challenges menu now. You’ll need to complete Featured Contracts in Track 1, which means these contracts need to be on locations from Hitman 1 or Hitman 2 (excluding the Prologue maps or the Sniper maps).
Here’s the list of maps that count:
- Hawke’s Bay
- Santa Fortuna
- Whittleton Creek
- Isle of Sgàil
- New York (DLC)
- Haven Island (DLC)
Featured Contracts on Hitman 3 maps count as Track 2 instead of Track 1.
Now, the Blue Flamingo Suit is on Tier 9 of Track 1. The way the tiers work is that every time you complete five contracts, you advance a tier. So Tier 1 requires you to complete five contracts, Tier 2 requires ten, etc. The Blue Flamingo Suit is Tier 9, which means you’ll need to complete 45 Featured Contracts.
Also note that this is for the full contract, not for each target. So if a contract has you kill four targets, it still only counts as a single contract.
The good news is that while you’re on your way to unlocking the Blue Flamingo Suit, you’ll also unlock additional items from Hitman‘s past. Here’s what you’ll earn:
- Tier 1 (5 Featured Contracts) – Gold Coin
- Tier 2 (10 Featured Contracts) – Measuring Tape
- Tier 3 (15 Featured Contracts) – Red-Tie Kiwi
- Tier 4 (20 Featured Contracts) – Handyman Wrench
- Tier 5 (25 Featured Contracts) – The Arkian Tuxedo
- Tier 6 (30 Featured Contracts) – Hobby Knife
- Tier 7 (35 Featured Contracts) – Phantom Suit
- Tier 8 (40 Featured Contracts) – Toolbox
- Tier 9 (45 Featured Contracts) – Blue Flamingo Suit
So yes, this is a pretty big grind. But it’s probably worth it for that suit. Probably?
