If you're aware of the Hitman 3 explosive golf ball in Dubai, then it's likely you've been studying the assassination challenges for that level and are wondering how to tick the Angry Birdy task off that list, or at the very least you've heard a couple of cleaners discussing an interesting plot to get rid of Carl Ingram. There are several tricky elements to carrying this out in Hitman 3, as you first have to locate the explosive golf ball itself, and then find a way to encourage Carl Ingram to head outside and actually strike it. Helpfully we've already figured out the details, so allow us to reveal the Hitman 3 explosive golf ball location and explain how to complete the Angry Birdy assassination challenge.

The Hitman 3 explosive golf ball is found inside a locked storage room, at the end of the Maintenance Corridor on Level 3, and there are two main routes to reach it. You can infiltrate this area disguised as Maintenance Staff or a Penthouse Guard, and when you enter the Maintenance Corridor you'll overhear a female staff member discussing the explosive golf ball on her phone.

Either incapacitate her to get the Janitorial Key (if you haven't found one elsewhere), or use a crowbar to pry open the door to the storage room at the end of the corridor. Inside, look behind the red toolbox in the corner and you'll find the Hitman 3 explosive golf ball, so grab it to add it to your inventory and complete the first stage of this assassination.

Alternatively, if you have a crowbar you can head up to Level 4 disguised as a Penthouse Guard, then make your way to the Outdoor Area off the main luxurious Courtyard. Near the golf set up you'll see the Penthouse Terrace Ladder shortcut, so break it with your crowbar and you can climb down directly into the storage room to collect the Hitman 3 explosive golf ball. This also opens up the shortcut for all subsequent playthroughs, which is quite handy.

So, now you have the Hitman 3 explosive golf ball, you need to actually encourage Carl Ingram to go and hit a few drives. He's trying to get some work done and has specifically requested no distractions, so the key to achieving this is making noise. When he's in the Master Suite on Level 5, turn on the vacuum cleaner in the corridor, and when he's in the Study on Level 3 switch on the radio in the corner – just make sure nobody observes you.

With both distractions completed, Carl Ingram will be so furious that he'll need to go and play some golf to cool off, so make sure you've planted the Hitman 3 explosive golf ball in the basket before he arrives with his security in the Outdoor Area. With everything in motion, all that's left to do is stand back and admire your handiwork, then collect the Angry Birdy assassination challenge that nets you a cool 4,000 XP towards your Mastery Level.
