Bradley Paine is the target in "The Vector", the third mission of HITMAN: Patient Zero. He is an expert virologist, medical doctor and the sleeper agent of the doomsday cult Liberation.
Bradley Paine is a Boston-educated British medical doctor and expert virologist. He has worked on a number of viral outbreaks in recent years, and is part of the response-pool of experts connected to the Center for Disease Control, in Atlanta.
During a field expedition, Paine was nearly killed when he tried to locate the source of a particularly lethal strain of Septem's Disease. After he was cured, Paine became convinced that plagues were an expression of the will of some unknowable yet welcoming deity, prompting him to join Liberation.
It appears that Paine's role in Oybek Nabazov's plan is not to spread the disease, but to actively hinder the C.D.C's. attempt to control it.
- Paine can only be assassinated via automatic Sniper Assassin mode. He will escape to the exit immediately after he was startled.
- During his route around the compound, he will talk to the infected soldiers. This will help to locate the infected targets to eliminate.
- He was apparently planned to an elusive target; "The Conditioner", according to a list of leaked elusive targets on the "subreddit" for Hitman.
