Assassination Contracts is one type of Victory Points in Antihero. Every several turns, corrupt city officials will issue an assassination contract. A character will spawn on the city map with a skull appended by their name and your mission is simple: Kill them.
- The difficulty of killing a target increases with time and number of kills made. After the first kill, each subsequent mark will spawn with two or more henchmen to guard them against assassins.
- While early on the Gang is sufficient to kill marks (or your Master Thief), the assassin becomes essential once they hit six and more health hearts.
- In general, contracts are an easy way to rack up victory points, but you should be wary of overconfidence or overfocusing. It's easy to lose track of the churches across the map and lose to a thief who manages their urchins particularly well.
