You Can Kill Gary Busey in Hitman This Week

You Can Kill Gary Busey in Hitman This Week

Starting Thursday, you can try your hand at taking out Gary Busey in Hitman.

Back in March, there was a Hitman promotion that gave Twitter users the choice of a celebrity target who would appear in the game at a later date. Voters could choose between two actors named Gary: Gary Cole and Gary Busey. Gary Busey won that vote, and this week, you'll finally get your chance to gun him down.

Starting Thursday morning at 8 AM ET, Busey (also known as "The Wildcard") will be found in Sapienza for seven days. If you can't find him and take him out before the week is up, you'll miss out forever, as he'll be gone.

Like all the Elusive Targets in the game, you'll only have one chance to take him down. If you die along the way, you'll fail the contract. There are no retries.

If you've got it in for Gary Busey, this is your best chance to take him out. I have to admit that I'd miss his Amazon commercials, though.

Wildcard is an appropriate nickname for Gary Busey.

Pff. Nothing can kill Gary Busey.

I just wish they wouldn't make those time exclusive.

Well a week is better than the two or three days that we've had to take out each of the elusive targets so far.

These timed assassinations are one of the dumbest and most anti-consumer things in gaming right now. Why aren't more people talking about how fucked up this is?

But we sure can try. I know this has massively increased my chance of buying this game at some point.

Wait, really? They're more than timed skins?

Since I loathe and despise all time limits and actually like Busey's acting, I hardly see the point to this, really.

Anti-consumer? In what way? I don't know all the details, but the concept of a high price target being out in the open for a short time seems like an awesome little thing to throw into a game about an assassin.

I don't want to kill the man. I just want him to get the mental health treatment he clearly needs.

You can't kill the Busey, he just comes back stronger!

Busey isn't crazy, he's just differently sane.

I for one think it's folly. If you kill Busey all of us will feel that much more crazy without him as a shining example of radiant lunacy. All we'll have is Nicolas Cage afterwards.
