Has there ever been such a festival of virtual sniping as our Hitman Sniper Challenge? Probably not. Even we've been at it with our Blindfolded Hitman Sniper Challenge. But it's time to come blinking into the light outside of the scope of your rifle and take a look at this week's winners.
This week's top placing PS3 winner has nailed the top spot before, so that prize is going to the second-placed player. PC and Xbox 360 both have new leaders, though, meaning that the following folk get a chibi Agent 47 figurine for being great at creatively shooting people in the face this week:
2nd place: 'stinoss' with a score of 5127106
1st place: 'EllegableFish' with a score of 2856661.
1st place: 'shootable' with a score of 2,315,329 (2nd to Triplelexx who scored 6,325,801 but who won a couple of weeks previously).
Well done to you all. By the way, in case you missed our previous update, it's worth noting that the Sennheiser headphones previously offered as part of the monthly prize (the above are winners of the weekly prize, just to avoid confusion) have been removed from the prize list. Don't get sad, though - they've been replaced by an even better pair of Sennheiser Headphones! Yep, thought you wouldn't mind that so much.
So - 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.
