Speedrunners never cease to amaze us, figuring out ways to beat games in ways we can't even comprehend.
Hitman 3 has only been out for a few days and speedrunners have already found a way to beat the entire game in mere minutes.
Dubai Level Beaten In 8 Seconds
In the level, players need to eliminate Carl Ingram and Markus Stuyvesant.
Normally this will take players anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour as they analyse the movements and patterns of each target and formulate the perfect plan to eliminate them.
Instead, Goron just walks in, hits 2 headshots, and leaves before anyone even knows what's going on, the mark of a true assassin.
This video definitely makes my 48 minutes look amateurish.
Speedrun videos can be a great tool to watch and study, even for non-speedrunners.
They often master a level or a game and the runner knows every minor detail there is to know.

By analysing speedrun videos, regular players, like you and I, can learn things about the game that we otherwise wouldn't have paid attention to.
This can help to make our own playthroughs much more optimized with less time wasted.
Check out the trailer for Hitman 3 below.
Hitman 3 is available on PC via Epic Games Store, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Nintendo Switch via cloud gaming, and Google Stadia.
No Steam Version?
Despite Hitman 1 and 2 being on Steam, Hitman 3 released exclusively on Epic Games Store.
Hitman 1 is on EGS too, however, Hitman 2 currently isn't.
There is also an issue where players won't be able to bring their progress and levels from Hitman 2 over to 3, instead of having to repurchase them.
IO Interactive has stated that they are looking into solutions for this issue, so hopefully, that means we won't have to repurchase the game if we want the World of Assassination Trilogy all in one game.
