Easy "Silent Assassin" rank in A Vintage Year mission
You do not need any weapons for this mission; you only need the Anti Personnel Mine, Sedative Serum, and Coins. At the start of the mission, do not follow the tourists. Instead, go west along the outer wall. When you get to the corner you will see a broken truck. Check your map for guards. There should be one south of your location. Go around him using trees and bushes as your cover. You do not need to crawl, as he usually does not notice if you are a fair distance away. Once you pass him use the serum and sedate him from the back. Take his clothes and leave him there. Get in the rear compartment of the broken truck then get on it's roof. From there, get on the storage room roof. Slowly crawl through there to the hole in the roof then jump in. The other guards will not pay much attention to you since you are wearing the guard's clothes. You do not need to worry about the alert level, even if it rises. Run out of the storage facility and across the square. Go to the right from the mansion and through the wooden door. Keep running straight and take the first door to the left that leads to the basement. You should see a guard as soon as you open the door. Place a mine next to him on the gadget with rope.
Check the map until you notice a red blip (the target) enter a small square opening below you. As soon as this happens, get a few yards back from the explosive. Throw a coin on the ground so the guard comes to it. Detonate the mine once guard clears off. By doing this, the guard will not die and you will not suffer a penalty for an unnecessary kill. Wait for some guards to run to the place you are at, then make your way back to the mansion. Instead of the front entrance, use the small door on the left of it. This will lead you just a bit underground. Go to the door on the right and wait (with your map on) for the guard who is parallel to you to come by and turn around (starts marching back). Open the door, go to him and sedate him. Drag the guard to the nearest room to your right and take his clothes. He is a different type of guard who can move around the house freely.
Dressed as a VIP guard, go to second floor and into the room with your target. Do not bother to crawl. Go to the balcony and throw a few coins on the ground to get his attention. Once he comes to check it out, get behind him and push him over the rail. Both targets are now dead. Check your map. There should be a "!" mark nearby, which is a window. Get out of it and down the roof. Get off the roof and go right behind the corner. There will be a narrow passageway down to the plane. Notice this is the place where the second target has landed. Do not forget to pick up his weapon on your way down. When you are near the plane, crawl by the one worker and two guards that are nearby. Ignore the worker and walk around the path. Get into the plane and complete the mission.
