The primary objective of any Kill Mission is just to kill off your target - it’s to kill or be killed - that’s pretty much the name of the game! However, wounding your target (by depleting his health points) will also allow you to move on to other targets, if you choose not the pursue the mission any further.
Wound your target and earn yourself 1 Kill Point (KP), and move on to a new target - that way, you can chalk up more KPs than stalking that one target for the same period of 10 days!
Wound your target and earn yourself 1 KP, but immediately pursue your target (till his death) to milk all 4 KPs (maximum) from that very same target!
By all means, accept more kill missions and outsource them to other assassins and earn yourself more KPs if you wanna; just make sure you have enough in your bank account for the bounties BUT most importantly, stay alive.
Successful Kill = 3 Kill Points
Successful Wounding = 2 Kill Point
Successful Neutralising Assassin = 1 Kill Point
Max. Kill Points (per target) = 5 Kill Points
Important to note: Even if you wound the same target twice, you will only be awarded ONCE.
Also, if you neutralise your assassin and successfully neutralises him again, you will only be awarded ONCE.
You basically failed your mission if your target was NOT wounded OR killed within 10 days of receiving the Kill Mission. In this instance, the specifics of the target is released and the mission will be reassigned to another (worthy) assassin.
Thrown into a slush pool of imbeciles you will be, and penalized for your incapability with a deduction of $500 for the failed mission before receiving a new target.
