Walk over to the Professor's body, and pick up the car keys. You're going to need
these for your escape. Continue on, following the green line on your map, and generally
have a good look around and get used to the controls.
You'll probably notice a lot of
dead bodies on the floor, dressed in a suspiciously similar way to you. These are
your clone brothers (killed at the end of Hitman: Codename 47). You can pick
up weapons off them, although you won't need them. There are also a few locked doors,
but you can only open them later in the game.
Continue all the way until you see a table with a gun and ammunition. If you want,
collect these, and head towards the elevator. You will be treated to a short cutscene,
showing the SWAT teams assaulting the building. Get into the elevator, save your game,
and select Floor 2.
Don't worry if, when you looked at the maps, there appeared to be people lurking
around outside the elevators. They will be gone. In addition, since the SWAT teams will
kill anyone they find armed, they will be shooting the asylum staff as well.
When the doors of the elevator open, step out and approach the dead inmates (in the light
blue/grey garb). Drag one of them into the room straight in front of you
(the POI - Dr. Kovac's office) and close the door. Change into the inmates clothes,
and check the map. [See video below]
If the SWAT team isn't heading towards your part of the building,
leave the room and return to the bodies. Along the southern wall of this corridor
you will find a stun gun on the floor. Pick it up, and holster it immediately.
Head south into the large operating theatre, out through the doors at the far end.
To make your life easier here, time this right. Keep an eye on the 2nd floor map, and
you will see a guard that patrols between the two most southern rooms, then goes
downstairs. Head down the main stairs towards the SWAT team when you see him start
to make his way east.
The SWAT team will order you into the lab, so go behind them,
and through the door on the left. Why the timing? Inmates are gathered here,
and one of them is armed. He will, after a certain amount of time, pull his weapon
and start shooting, causing the SWAT team outside to come in and shoot everyone
in the room; we don't want that, do we!
