Hitman Sniper Challenge: the ultimate assassin revealed

Who won Agent 47's prize? Find out inside

The Hitman Sniper Challenge saw thousands of eagle-eyed gamers competing for the title of Agent 47's ultimate assassin.

Trigger happy marksmen and marksladies went toe to toe for over four months, racking up over 100 million kills in their attempts to top the monthly leaderboards on PC, Xbox 360 and PS3, with hundreds of prizes like iPads, Sennheiser headphones and those too cute Agent 47 mini-figs up for grabs.

A huge thanks to all who took part, but there can be only one winner and slowly contestants were whittled down into a shortlist of hot shots, who went forward to the grand final at this year's thirtieth annual Golden Joysticks.

The prize? Not only all the goodies mentioned above but the chance to be crowned the ultimate assassin, win the first ever publicly awarded Golden Joystick, be presented with the prize by the voice of Agent 47 David Bateson live at the show and to have their face scanned to appear in a future Hitman game.

Check out our video below for the video which tells the full story of the day.
