In Saints Row, Hitman is one of if not the hardest activities in the game, mainly due to the fact that the player has to actively search for a target around the city, which could take a few hours or even days in real time. The reason for its difficulty is because most players tend to search directly for the targets; the activity was designed so that the player could do missions or other activities to busy themselves whilst waiting on the targets to show up. The activity has been made easier in Saints Row 2, with most targets having a fixed location or a way of luring them out.
After getting the list of targets from your client, it can be accessed through the Activities menu. Targets can be killed at any time, but are more easily be found by adding them to your HUD.
Most targets are only found at certain locations, but some can be found anywhere in Stilwater.
In Saints Row, targets must be killed with a certain weapon.

Either your thinking, "There's no way I can kill someone who's done nothing to me" or you're thinking, "How am I gonna spend all that cash". Let me tell you something sweetie, the second thought is gonna get you farther in this world."

He's got a big court case comin' up and the prosecutor has a whole line of witnesses that could put him away...needless to say, that ain't gonna happen. I got a list of all the witnesses and I'll pay you for each one you can take out. That straight with you?"

Mr. Wong calmly places his gun on the table.Mr. Wong (in English): "He heard me wrong. I wish for them all to be dead...do we have a deal?"

- There is a glitch wherein, if the player saves the game after killing the last target on a list without allowing the reward screen to appear, and then loads the game, they will not recieve the reward for completing the activity. The only way to divert this is unfortunately to start a new game.
- Doing activities will raise the chances of your targets arrival. A random target will appear in your area, disregarding the area you are likely to find them. Killing them with the correct weapon and finishing the activity will reward you the money and respect from the client as well as the completed activity.
- Hitman is not included in the German version of the game.
Saints Row 2Edit
In Saints Row 2, targets will appear on the map even if not selected in the HUD.
Some targets require you to perform a certain action before they can be found, so it is important to read the details in the target list.
Sometimes, the target uses a decoy. After killing the decoy, the real target will appear on the map.
