Welcome to the final act of the World of Assassination trilogy. If you've played the previous 2 games you'll be very familiar with this one as it works pretty much the same, with the addition of some new stuff such as shortcuts and the camera. You'll be in for a while as you'll need to reach level 20 mastery in each mission if you want the platinum. Yes you've read that right, this time there IS a platinum to be earned. Third's time is indeed the charm.
A quick note about possible trophy glitches: certain challenges can glitch and certain trophies, if not all of them, are tied to the actual challenges completion. If it happens for you, try to do the requirements again but if it won't pop then unfortunately there's not much you can do as your saves are all online and cannot be deleted and challenges are deactivated while playing offline.
Online trophies: the reason why I marked them all online is that if you're playing offline, all mastery progression, unlocks and challenges will be locked. For this reason you should play online at all times.
Auto-popping trophies: when you carry over your progression from Hitman 2, it will autopop every trophy that you earned on Hitman 2, including the trophies from Hitman legacy maps. Trophies earned on PS4 will auto-pop on PS5 and trophies earned on PS5 will also auto-pop on PS4.
Step 1: Complete the mission while completing Mission Stories:
Start by following any of the Mission Stories that you can find on the menu and follow them to the end to find different ways to kill your targets and complete the mission. You can make a save just before leaving the mission so you can reload it to quickly finish it later to register your progress when doing challenges. I also highly recommend to make saves after completing Mission Stories but before killing your targets as it can be a quick way to unlock multiple challenges. You can't complete all Mission Stories at once so start another run to clean up the remaining ones.
Step 2: Misc trophies + playing around with the mission until you reach Level 20:
Each mission has a few misc trohies, most of the time tied to a very specific way to kill your targets. Also in this one, you'll need to reveal all locations on each mission so do that first, then keep replaying the mission to complete different challenges until you reach Level 20. All challenges are instantly saved so you’re free to reload your save after completing them and you don’t have to finish the mission for them to count. But you’ll eventually need to finish it to see your progress though.
Step 3: Do the same for each location:
Each location is the same, with the exception of the last one that requires you to complete every challenges but don't worry too much as it's a very easy one.
Note about the DLCs:
The developers did the same thing they did with Hitman 2 i.e. they added the Hitman 1 & 2 trophies as DLC. To be able to play them you'll need to own Hitman 1, 2 and/or the additional expensions from Hitman 2 and import them through Hitman 3.
Please check the Hitman (2016), Hitman 2 (2018) and Hitman 2 (2018): Additional Expansions if you need help with these trophies. There's also a "carry over" option that let you import all your Hitman 2 progression through Hitman 3, which includes unlocks that you will be able to use. This is a one-time thing and if you decide to do that you should do it the very first time you play the game as that will overwrite your Hitman 3 progress! None of these DLC trophies are required for the Platinum.
