A shameless bump and a side quest update. For those who are too lazy to view the first page:
The Assassination Contracts
About: The Assassination Contracts side quest plays a major role in Life's Price. Basically, there are a total of 9 organized crime mobs you can work for. For every successful hit against the rival mob, your respect with your hit giver raises. Gaining enough respect opens up their unique lounge. But as you do hits against the rivals, their respect drops down. If it drops too deep, you won't be very welcome in their districts. There is still a way to be ''friends'' with every single mob. Do your hits in silence so the rivals won't recognize you.
Payment: The first hits for a mob give you up to a thousand bucks. The more hits you do, the more money you get. Just remember, failing a hit decreases the payment. And your money starts at 1000 for every gang. But, of course, every hit becomes harder each time.
Hit categories: There are a total of 7 categories how a hit can look like:
The Deal Your target has a drug deal with another mob. You have to take him out. The hit mostly happens outdoors, often in dock areas. Keep in mind that if you kill any of the other gang members, you may loose respect for them too.
The Meeting The lucky man has a meeting with some important VIP or Politician or some corrupt cop. You have to remember that you can easily earn a high wanted level on these jobs.
The Runaway Your target knows someone send a hitman after him. He drives to a dock or the airport to leave the city. On this one, you have to be fast to kill your target.
The Robbery If you like annoying people at work, this is the right thing for you. The target is in the middle of a robbery. Take care of him and steal whatever he wanted to steal. A wanted level is often possible.
The Chase The target sure did sh*t in his life. For example, he is being chased by hordes of police officers. Just drive in there and kill him to finish the hit and get his wanted level or steal a cop car and be the hero of the day.
The Meal Your chubby target is sitting and eating some sh*t at the local restaurant. Let his ugly face drop into his diner by killing him with a headshot. On a meal, there are always many mobsters so a sniper is reccomended.
The Party Your target likes to party much. He hangs around the nearby club. Make him dance one last time. Just keep in mind the many bouncers who don't like shooting in their clubs.
The Gang Lounges, also known as gang hideouts are places for specific gangs to hang out. Similar to the Lost clubhouse in TLAD, the player can take on various activities in a lounge. Every Lounge has different activities, different music and different people. Some of the lounges have to be unlocked by having a good relationship with the gang. There are a total of 9 Lounges:
