Keep Jack Griffin alive and boost your kill count.
If you dream of being a gun for hire, Glu Mobile's free iOS and Android effort, Contract Killer 2, will help scratch that itch. The recently released title casts you as a sniper charged with killing a plethora of baddies in New York, Dubai and Moscow, where constantly upgrading one's equipment and possessing a steady hand are but two keys to fortune and glory, not to mention ridding the world of evildoers. It's both rewarding and tricky, an arcade style game where heavily armed baddies are more than capable of taking you out. That said, don't let hero Jack Griffin go six feet under. Instead, reference this Contract Killer 2 cheats and tips guide.

Complete Challenges For Rewards
Congratulations on joining the Frequent Killer Club. Complete in-game achievements to score cash, valuable XP that goes towards unlocking new weapons/equipment and the coolest prize of all, free credits, so long as you earn enough stars. Think of it as a special rewards card, because that's exactly what it is. What's especially cool is the ability to see your progress for different objectives. Only 15 more melee kills to go? Sounds doable.
Don't Leave Jack Griffin Exposed
Well duh, right? The longer Jack remains out in the open, the easier a target he'll be. Sounds like a no brainer, but even we are surprised at how much we forget this simple tip, largely because we're too busy lining up targets to realize Jack's health has depleted. On that note, it's a good idea to squeeze off a couple shots and then press the cover button (shield on the right) to regroup.
Use Melee Attacks Whenever Possible
New to Contract Killer 2 is the ability to perform stealth kills without alerting guards. To do this, you'll need to be within range of an enemy. You'll know Jack is in position if a circle appears over the victim. From there, tap this circle when the tiny spinning ball passes over the yellow mark, then watch Jack pulverize or strangle his way to a bonus melee reward, but it goes beyond cash and XP. The sneakier Jack is, the longer you preserve his health, since doing this won't attract unwanted attention.
Keep An Eye On The Clock
There's no room for slow pokes. Each mission must be completed within a set amount of time. Once the clock hits zero, you fail, so be mindful of how many minutes/seconds remain.
Always Seek To Upgrade Weapons And Equipment
Before heading out into the field, Contract Killer 2 will let you know where you stand in terms of firepower, then suggest upgrades. Granted, you probably won't be able to afford this stuff half the time, but it's always a great idea to make upgrades whenever possible.
Don't Forget About Equipment And Body Armor
In Contract Killer 2, the guns definitely take center stage, but you also need to spend some cash and credits on equipment. Throwing knives are great for melee kills from up to 10 yards away, flashbang grenades temporarily stun enemies, Reactix pills slow down time and med kits replenish health. There's also body armor to consider, which is extremely helpful during the toughest missions. In other words, don't get caught up with guns, or Jack may wind up in a world of hurt.
Examine the environment for places Jack can move to, designated in orange. Tap these areas to move towards an exit and/or get a better line of sight on a specific enemy.
