You’d think by Hitman 3 I’d stop being surprised at Agent 47’s capacity to turn anything into a weapon, but my jaw hit the floor last night as I knocked out a guard with nothing but a banana. A banana! The notoriously soft fruit with non-threatening vibes that occasionally masquerades as a telephone. Clobbering someone with a banana is fine and all, but thanks to a little-used Hitman mechanic you can unlock the full power of its slippery peel. 

Have you ever placed an object in Hitman without dropping it? The game hardly ever mentions that you can do this, but they’re actually two separate actions. Holding Caps Lock (or both bumpers on a controller) with an object in your hand allows you to formally place it in a deliberate spot. This precision is usually only useful for planting remote mines, but placing the banana in this way squishes it into a slippery banana peel. Slap it along the path of someone you’d like to be less awake and, congratulations, you’ve laid the perfect trap. No one will ever see it coming.
