It's been another week of heady (shotty) action on the Hitman: Sniper Challenge scoreboards. Skulls have been shattered. Scores have have been smashed. There's been joy. There's been glory. There have been tears (but mainly from the victims' families). Who's come out top to score this week's top prizes? Well...
This week's top placing PS3 player (Hitman1983) has nailed the top spot before, so that prize is going to second placed winner. It's business as usual across the rest of the rests though, meaning that in total the following folk get a chibi Agent 47 figurine for landing the top and 47th placed spots:
2nd place: 'biscuit092'
47th place: 'beneddy'
1st place: 'JasonScope'
47th place: 'jolpool'
1st place: 'Grief_Reaper'
47th place: 'RobbieSpex'
Want to be in with a chance of adding your name to these most esteemed ranks of virtual murderisers in the coming weeks? Well get involved. The challenge is running until October, with weekly winners as well as bigger prizes for monthly winners. For the details head here and here, but remember...
And that's not all. All Monthly winners will have the chance to battle it out in a Grand Final and be crowned the UK’s Ultimate Assassin. This person will be immortalised in a future Hitman game and also presented with a Golden Joystick at Future Publishing’s annual Golden Joystick Awards on 26th October 2012.
