equipment. This is my second FAQ and so I might have a few minor mistakes. 
You can reach me at LoneCommando@hotmail.com. Just make sure that your E-Mail

around. My Gamertag is:LoneCommando467. Anyway I hope that everyone enjoys my
FAQ and finds it helpful. If you have any questions or comments E-mail me.

www.supercheats.com let me know right away.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
What Weapons to Use
     What weapons should use. The weapons you bring with you in to the misson
will depend on the misson, the enviroment, security levels at the location, 
and how you plan to conduct the misson. If you aim to get a silent assassin 
then a suppresed(silienced) pistol and a good sniper rifle are your best
friends. However if you are going to go for the kill everyone in sight 
approach then it is useful to have a M-4 or something similar located on site
for your use. Also it is useful if you plan on shooting to know if ammo for
your gun will be available on site. Espically if you are going in with a gun 
other then your trademarke weapons.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Upgrading
     A feature new to Hitman games from Hitman:Blood Money is the ability to 
purchase and install upgrades for your trademark guns which are the Hardballer
, the tatical submachine gun, the M-4, the SPAS-12 shotgun, and the WA2000 
sniper rifle. Some of these like the silincers open new options to use when 
taking out your targets. Beware thought some of these will stop you from using
other upgrades, for example on the hardbaler the long slide will not let you
use the suppresor.
